Ranking The Zodiac Signs By Who Is The Most Protective Of Their Heart

1. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, once you fall in love, you stay in love forever. You are loyal as can be and don’t want anything to ever change. You hope everything always stays the same. You tend to let your emotions and feelings rule your head. You are the one who has always believed in true love, and once you get your heart broken, it takes you an unbelievably long time to allow anyone into your heart again (if ever). You keep your heart the most protected among all signs.

2. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn, you blame yourself too much when your heart gets broken or a relationship ends. You get obsessive trying to figure out how you could have prevented the end and what you could have changed about yourself. You take a long time to let anyone into your life and don’t tend to consider the chances of it not working out. You overwhelm yourself emotionally by overanalyzing every detail of how it could have worked. That’s why you protect your heart a lot.

3. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, you may want to be the center of all attention, but when you give your heart to someone, they become the center of your universe. When a relationship ends, you may act as you have moved on, but it takes you a long time to get over the pain. You will hold on to the past for a long time, even when others think you have moved on. You are very protective of your heart because ends hurt you too much and you hate dealing with them.

4. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, you are among the most sensitive signs and the most difficult to love. When your heart breaks, you keep things bottled up for too long and pretend to get back to your normal self, but all you can think of is your heart and your love. You prefer not to deal with the intense emotions because you know how hard it is for you to get over someone. Therefore, you protect your heart and tend to stay in love with your first love.

5. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, you have a reputation for making it difficult for other people to get close to you. You rarely let people in because if they leave, you become emotionally very weak. You are good at distracting yourself and trying to move on, but you do realize that heartbreak might happen more than once. You take time, but eventually, you will open your heart for more love.

6. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, you are very emotional, and you are willing to feel every emotion in the world to not feel the heartbreak. You are very vulnerable and accept that the best way to get over a heartbreak is to deal with it. You are determined and aware of how to deal with any feeling your heart might feel. You protect your heart enough that it can open itself to love sooner than the other five signs.

7. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, you would rather keep your heart safe than give it to the first person who you think is right for you. You do not emotionally invest in casual flings because real love is scary for you. You worry that once people know the real you, they might leave, so you tend to end things first. You may protect your ego a bit more than your heart.

8. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, most people wish they had your outlook when it comes to breakups because you tend to focus on the positives of why the relationship ended. Of course, you will feel the pain of the end, but you could move on with your life without it affecting you too much. Your ability to protect your heart while feeling the emotions without it getting crushed is admired by so many.

9. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, you are mature when it comes to matters of the heart because you see beginnings and ends of relationships as a natural part of life and do not let yourself get confused by them. You see relationships as a part of life and not your life. Others may think you are cold, but you are strong-willed and know that you shouldn’t get matters of the heart to influence your judgment. Your heart is open to both love and heartbreak.

10. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, you are so passionate, and you are so excited to jump into a relationship quickly when you meet someone you love. This does make ends hard for you, but you are mature enough to realize that things didn’t work out for a reason. It helps you get closer to what works best for you so you can be open to love when you find it. You only keep coming back to the ones who feed your soul.

11. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, you do not let breakups take over your life like most people. You will be upset, but you know it’s smart to move on and not let it rule your life. You are pretty laid back and prefer to distract your pain by spending time with friends. It is easy for you to move on as you try to focus on the positive of its end. It leaves you open to better love out there.

12. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, out of all the signs, you are the least protective of your heart because you handle the end of relationships so well. Instead of crying and obsessing about past failures, you are more easily able to focus on the good things in life. You do not generally prefer serious relationships because you think it will affect your freedom. It is pretty easy for you to move from one relationship to another.
