Aries: March 21st – April 19th
“If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best.”
This is partially true — but you can’t go overboard with the idea. You can’t treat your person like a piece of shit and expect them to love you anyway. They are not your punching bag. You shouldn’t hurt them, apologize, and think that makes everything okay again. Even though you are going to have bad days and ugly meltdowns, you have to try to be your best for them. You can’t take their kindness for granted. You have to put in the effort to be a good partner.
Taurus: April 20th – May 20th
“Timing is everything.”
You fall hard for people and then have trouble getting over them, because you think things could change in the future. You think that one day, when you are both single and ready for something real, the universe will bring you together again. But if someone does not want to put in the effort to be with you now, if they are not willing to move across the country for you or dump their partner for you, they probably aren’t right for you.
Gemini: May 21st – June 20th
“Love like you’ve never been hurt.”
If you don’t learn from your mistakes, then you are going to keep making the same ones over and over again. You’re allowed to guard your heart for a while before fully opening up to someone new. It’s okay to be cautious in love. It can help you sort out the bad seeds from the good ones.
Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd
You have a big heart. You are the kind of person who would give the shirt off their back to anyone in need. While you might be attracted to someone completely different from you — a bad boy who doesn’t care about anyone other than himself — that doesn’t mean you should create a life with him. You deserve someone as kind as you. Someone who puts in as much effort as you. Someone who loves as hard as you.
Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd
“Love should be easy.”
If you expect love to be easy, then you are never going to stay in a relationship for long, because you’ll keep giving up as soon as you reach a rough patch. The truth is that love is difficult. There are going to be moments that test your relationship and you have to be strong enough to stick together through them all. Love takes effort. Love takes hard work.
Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd
“Set them free, and if it was meant to be, they will come back.”
You shouldn’t get caught up in on-and-off again relationships. When you leave someone, you should leave permanently. Don’t expect them to come back. Don’t let them come back. If they were willing to give you up once, then they clearly didn’t know what they had. They clearly didn’t see your worth. And you deserve someone who knows how special you are from day one.
Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd
“You can’t love someone until you love yourself.”
Self-love is incredibly important, but it doesn’t have to come before dating. You might have insecurities you are struggling to deal with and that is okay. That doesn’t mean you are unlovable. You can still find your forever person, even though you haven’t fully learned to love yourself yet. Eventually, you will start to see yourself the way they see you.
Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st
“Don’t kiss and tell.”
While you shouldn’t tell your friends every detail about your love life, you are allowed to give them a few juicy stories. They might be able to give you advice that strengthens your relationship. Or they might be able to point out red flags that you haven’t noticed yourself. Besides, if you hold all of your emotions inside, you are going to explode. You are the kind of person who needs to talk about your emotions. If you don’t, your relationship will suffer.
Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st
“Once a cheater, always a cheater.”
You have made mistakes in love before. You have hurt people who trusted you. Despite all that, you want to believe that you are capable of changing. You have hope that one day, when you find the right person, you will be able to stay loyal to them. You don’t want to think of yourself as a lost cause. You want to believe you’re marriage material, but you just haven’t found the right person yet.
Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th
“Love is blind.”
You’d be lying if you said physical attraction never comes into play when you’re looking for a partner. It’s not the only thing you need, but you do need it. You wouldn’t be able to make a relationship last without at least a little sexual tension. Looks are important to you — and that is okay.
Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th
“Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
In your world, words mean as much as actions. If your person hurts you, then you want to hear an apology. You want to talk things through with them. You want to know what the hell they were thinking at the time and hear them express regret over the way they treated you. Without a genuine I’m sorry, you’d hold a grudge.
Pisces: February 19th – March 20th
“Never go to bed angry.”
When someone hurts you, you have a hell of a temper. If you get pissed off at your person, it might be better to talk about your issues in the morning, after you have had the chance to breathe a little. If you force yourself to talk right then and there so you don’t go to bed angry, you could say something you regret. Something that could ruin the entire relationship. It’s better to wait until you’re both calm to have a discussion, so the talk doesn’t backfire.
