This Is What You Need To Do To Find Real Love, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Twenty20 / @calebthetraveler

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You need to slow down. You’re always on the move and have a calendar full of things you need to do, places to go, stuff to accomplish. You’re so focused on staying busy that you’re missing out on opportunities to just be. You need to take a second to look around. You never know what you might see. Or who you might see.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You need to let people in a little more. You’ve got a hefty wall up. You’re determined, stubborn, and when you decide something isn’t going to happen, it won’t happen. You’re afraid to give love a shot, so you’re keeping it an arm’s length. You can’t keep doing that. No one will ever get close enough for something beautiful  if you do.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You need to make a decision and stick to it. You’re terrified of commitment because you fear making the wrong choice. You’re never forever stuck. But being able to commit, being able to go for something is so, so important. Being wishy-washy is going to end up costing you a lot.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You need to stop with the self-pity. You feel sorry for yourself for being single or unlucky in love. Newsflash: all of us experience that at some point. You’re not unique in it. You need to find something to get you out of that feeling. Meditation. An exercise routine. Spending time with people you care about. You won’t attract anything as long as you’re being a sour puss.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You need to step outside of your self-obsession. You are very ‘You’ oriented and to find love, it’s important to think of others. Practice active listening. This will take you sooooo far (in love and beyond!).

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You need to put yourself out there. You like staying in a place of regimented routine. You’ve got some issues with social anxiety and the idea of stepping into a new situation really freaks you out. But no one is going to magically step into your bubble. You have to go find them first.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

You need to get over your fear of being alone. At some point, we’re all alone. It’s actually not a bad thing. You need that time to learn who you are and what you really want. If you want real love, you need to be okay by yourself first.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

You need to let go. You can be pretty vindictive and cannot get over grudges. You need to forgive and move forward. Holding onto anger and resentment will only hurt you. Find some inner peace. I know it’s hard for you, Scorpio. But I think you can do it. And then, only then, love will come looking.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st )

You need to calm down. You rush into romantic situations with your heart on your sleeve and it can be overwhelming. You don’t need to go full force in the beginning. Patience is a virtue. Take your time.

Capricorn: (December 22nd – January 19th)

You need to not be so serious all the time. You’re a stickler for responsibility. While important, it’s not the only thing that matters. Cut loose. Be weird. Give yourself permission to make a fool of yourself. Love requires that. Love is kinda of embarrassing. Don’t be afraid to embrace that.

Aquarius: (January 20th – February 18th)

You need to be around people. It’s totally okay to be an introvert and crave time alone. That’s how you energize. You’re not a big fan of crowds and really enjoy solitude. But you do need to be a bit more social. Not saying you need to become a sudden partier. But you’ll have to be around people if you want to, you know, meet someone.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You need to get out of your own way. You’re kind, creative, and romantic. For you, love comes easily. But sometimes you freak out at the idea of something being real (and not just a fun fantasy) that you end up self-sabotaging. Stop ruining stuff on purpose. Allow yourself a chance at happiness.
