(March 21st to April 19th)

You won’t let love in because you’re always looking for the next best thing. You want to always be better, do better, find better. It’s not that you’re never satisfied, it’s that you want to keep improving. You’re right, you shouldn’t settle, especially when it comes to love, but you also shouldn’t push people away before you get to know who they really are.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You won’t let love in because you’re scared of getting hurt. You let the fear of love keep you from accepting it because you’re convinced that if you do, your heart will ultimately be broken. Don’t look at love through pessimistic eyes. Just because you’ve been hurt before doesn’t mean everyone will hurt you.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You won’t let love in because you’re scared you’ll mess it up. You know you’re a complicated person, and sometimes you don’t even understand the things you’re feeling. You don’t want someone else to feel like they have to figure you out when you can’t figure yourself out most of the time. You know that if you let love in, it’s going to be really messy.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You won’t let love in because you don’t want to hurt anyone. The idea of someone handing you their heart and expecting you not to break it scares you. You know you’d never intentionally hurt someone, but you’re afraid that even if you don’t intend to, the hurt will still happen.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You won’t let love in because you’re scared of giving someone the ability to change your life. You want to be in control, you want to make your own choices and do the things you want to do because you want to do them, but real love doesn’t take control of you, it just comes along for the ride.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You won’t let love in because you’re not completely certain you deserve it. You’re quick to doubt yourself and you doubt that love is something you’ve earned. You see the mistakes you’ve made and you won’t forgive yourself for making them. You won’t let love in until you learn how to let go of the past and learn from your wrong-doings instead of simply regretting them.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You won’t let love in because the love you give to everyone else, you haven’t given back to yourself. No one will be able to love you if you can’t love you. It’s time to worry less about others and more about yourself.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You won’t let love in because you’re slow to trust people. No one can get close enough, without you doubting that they’re love is loyal or real. It’s not a personal attack against the person trying to love you, it’s just how you operate. You won’t fully trust someone until they’ve earned it.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You won’t let love in because every time you come close, you run away. You know there’s more to life than love, and you know you’d never let a relationship completely change you, but each time you think you’re falling, you panic. A part of you worries that you won’t be able to maintain the life you want and a loving relationship all at once. You’re scared love is something you won’t be able to handle.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You won’t let love in because you doubt it before it even has the chance of happening. You write love off too soon for it to ever truly grow. Maybe it’s because you’ve been hurt too many times, or maybe it’s because you’ve been on your own for far too long, either way, you’re not giving love a fair enough chance.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You won’t let love in because you haven’t found a love that completely fulfills you yet, and you doubt you ever will. You have high standards which is understandable, but giving someone a chance doesn’t mean you’re settling, it just means you’re figuring out if this person is someone you could ever love.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You won’t let love in because you know you get attached to people easily, and you don’t feel like being hurt because of that. You’ve never seen the fact that you’re quick to love as a weakness, but you do see it as one of your biggest vulnerabilities, and it seems every time you’re quick to love, you end up heartbroken. You’d rather refrain from love than have someone break your heart. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
