Maybe you were one of those lucky couples in a relationship that was the envy of all that looked upon it.

People would sneer with jealousy as you rubbed your noses together, or kissed freely in public, or looked lovingly at one another over a candlelit dinner.

Then one day you wake up and your partner doesn’t reach over. You leave for work early and you don’t leave a love note on the counter.

On Friday nights you opt to stay in and watch TV instead of a romantic night on the town.

This marks the end of the honeymoon stage. This isn’t a bad thing. This usually means that your relationship is growing and maturing.


The only time you have to worry is if your relationship seemed to slip out of the honeymoon period too early, or too abruptly.

Below are some tips to understanding why each zodiac sign might slip and slide out of the honeymoon stage.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are always looking for a new challenge. You are quick out of the gate, and always striving to be first. For an Aries, you probably moved very quickly into their relationship, moving very passionately through texts and dates and trips.

But soon, everything will seem boring and the passion will seem depleted. The honeymoon period might have ended because an Aries may be distracted by a new challenge.


If you feel like you have already conquer their relationship, you may start taking it for granted while looking to another challenge. However, Aries are very determined so if this is something their partner, an Aries will make sure to get to the bottom of it.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you are very Dependable. You are going to always be there for you. Taurus are stoked when the honeymoon phase is over because that’s when daily life with you will start. That’s the money for a Taurus.

You want to spend their Saturdays making you a cup of high-end coffee with their top of the line Nespresso machine in their silk pajamas while you put your feet up and read a book. You don’t like that nervous energy fueling the "cant keep your hands off each other" stage. You prefer the consistency of familiarity.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you are very adaptable. You can mold themselves to fit differently into multiple situations with tons of different people. You are known to get restless from time to time. A Gemini may exit the honeymoon stage because you are eager for a new chapter. It is the change of scene you may be craving more than the growth.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you are very loyal. You are going to dote on you and care for you. Cancers are all about a family unit. For Cancers, the honeymoon stage is going to end because you are exited to enter the next chapter. You can’t wait to get to the point where you are just sat on the couch watching a movie with the one you love.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

For Leo, you never want the honeymoon stage to end. You want to stay on that stage, singing their heart out. To get a Leo out of the honeymoon stage you need a comically oversized cane to just yank them off into the wings. But when you finally do relinquish, Leos are so passionate and exciting, the next chapter will be just as exciting as the first.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos will only leave the honeymoon stage because you think its time. For most signs it is not a conscious choice, it is something that just happens.


But for you, Virgo,  it is something that think about. Because everything is something that you think about. You have panic attacks about how many more you are going to have to share a milkshake with their S.O. instead of each ordering their own.

That is not to say that Virgos won’t enjoy the honeymoon period, you just want to have control over it.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you are the true masters of balance. Libras will find it to be time to exit the honeymoon phase when that is where you are headed. You won’t push their relationship in to a stage of routine until that is what it is doing naturally.


SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, you are very passionate. You would live in the honeymoon stage if you could. You will love spending their days making out in public and fawning all over their loved one.

The only thing that could shock a Scorpio out of the honeymoon stage is jealousy. Scorpios can get wildly jealous. If a Scorpio feel like the attention of their significant other is split, this is enough to shoot a Scorpio out of the honeymoon phase completely.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you are very curious and impatient. If you find themselves in any kind of routine (honeymooning for example), you will feel uncomfortable. It is likely that Sagittarius people will jump in and out of stages in their love life out of sheer boredom.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you are always very practical and reliable. The honeymoon stage for a Capricorn is probably less dramatic or exciting than the other signs, but it will probably also take longer to fade.

These Capricorns are so stable and traditional that once you get into any kind of routine, it is likely that that is the way you will continue to perform daily.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are a deep thinker. You always want to delve deeper into who you are and who you are and really get to the heart of things.


For them, the honeymoon period might end because you are tired of the superficial nature of it. You want to spend their time in deep conversation vs. shallow pet names and eye gazing.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

For you, Pisces, the honeymoon stage will probably never end completely. Pisces are very intuitive and emotional. You are always very deeply connected to their partners.

Perhaps the honeymooning may fade with time as these things do, but if a Pisces loves someone, you love their spirit so wholly that it would be impossible to lose that completely.
