The One Relationship Mistake You’re Likely to Make — Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Teresa Newsome | bustle.com

Do you seem to make the same mistakes over and over again in your relationships? It may be one of the common mistakes based on your sign that many people who share your sun sign make. Whether you believe in the power of the universe in our lives or not, it’s kind of uncanny how right-on astrology can seem sometimes. Especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

The common mistakes and personality traits listed below don’t necessarily apply to all people of the same signs. There are a lot of things to consider, like your moon sign and the influence of Venus and Mars in your life. Intuitive healer and astrologer and author of Astrology Made Simple, Ally Mead, told Bustle via email that you really need to take a person’s whole chart into consideration to see if they’re going to be a good match for you. This brings me to the following list of relationship mistakes, based on some of the most common characteristics of each sign. Knowing yourself better, be it through astrology or just experience and contemplation, is always a good thing. It can lead you closer to what you want, and it can keep you from being guided by your flaws.

1. Aries

If you’re an Aries, odds are, you like to jump into love head-first. Once things feel right to you, you’re not afraid to go from dating to married-with-children in two seconds flat. Sometimes things mean you miss out on important information, like your partner’s jerk streak or questionable past until you’re already super emotionally invested. Decisive, confident types make you swoon, which unfortunately often equates to jerks. Slow things down and pay attention, early on.

2. Taurus

If you’re a Taurus, you like shiny things, and that includes sexy people. You might get caught up in a super-steamy relationship with a red-hot sexual dynamo, only to realize once things cool off that your lover doesn’t have the financial stability or maturity to build a shiny life with you. You forget, in the heat of the moment, that you need the full package for long-term satisfaction, and that includes someone who’s healthy, responsible, goal-oriented, and not just sexy.

3. Gemini

If you’re a Gemini, you want someone you can discuss anything with and do anything with! Because you’re a mutable sign, you crave this mental stimulation more than sex sometimes. Unfortunately, sometimes this means you hitch your wagon on flighty types who are all over the place. They have a strong of abandoned hobbies and lost jobs. While they’re interesting, eventually you’ll want someone you don’t have to take care of so much.

4. Cancer

Cancer’s like to be taken care of. They like partners who make them feel safe, loved, provided for, and special. They’re also emotional and crave strong emotion in return. If you’re not careful, this can mean that you end up with a possessive, controlling partner, an emotionally manipulative partner, or a partner who you settle for because they can provide you with a home and money.

5. Leo

Leos like drama! They like artists, adventurers, and fun types who can keep them entertained and inspired. You love to laugh and appreciate a good inner-child. Unfortunately, this means you tend to go for people who have great, fun personalities, but aren’t the most responsible. Don’t stack up resentments because you chose to date someone you end up having to take care of.

6. Virgo

Virgos don’t play, and sometimes that can be their downfall. And when I say “don’t play” I don’t mean “don’t have fun.” I mean they are serious people who like serious partners. If you’re a Virgo, then in your search for your rock, you might end up with a workaholic or someone who is too serious. Virgos also tend to settle, if they get a partner who looks good on paper.

7. Libra

Libras don’t like to be single. They want to settle down and make a home with someone who loves them and wants to be loved by them. They love passionate people, like artists. Unfortunately, they tend to attract people who break their hearts by being jealous, indecisive, or controlling. And they’ll stay with these people for far too long. If you’re a Libra, don’t let your strong need for partnership overshadow a partner’s shady behavior.


The Key to Happiness According to Your Zodiac Sign

ByJoanna Angelidis  | In5D.com

Aries: Know Who you Are

Aries rules our face, our heads, our identity. Without a strong purpose or identity in life, an Aries may not be happy. Ruled by the planet Mars, Aries is our natural leader; they are the fighters, they are the rebels changing the rules. I can’t help to think of Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell video when I think of an Aries. They need a Cause, a Purpose, and they need to understand who they are. Quiet your mind Aries.. look deep within. Silently ask yourself “who am I?” and wait for the picture to come alive. Once you focus on what you want, keep that fire burning behind it, you’ll get it.. and your looks will help too.

Taurus: Strong Self-Worth

Through Taurus, we understand what we value the most. Without a strong Self-worth, a Taurus may not be happy. Ruled by the planet Venus, our Goddess of Love, and the finer things in life, she is the manifesto for all these things, including our own personal finances. Once a Taurus can communicate what he/she needs clearly through the part of the body they rule, which is the throat, they will become stronger, and instantly get what they deserve. They are the true Manifestoes. I am reminded of the Fairy God-mother from Cinderella; all you need to do is wave that wand, and see the picture of what you want. Make sure it is aligned with your true Values, and bippity-boppity-boo, it will come true.

Gemini: Communicate Freely

A Gemini that is silenced, or repressed in expressing themselves may not be happy. They need the freedom to express their feelings and emotions through the best way they can: Words. Words are Gemini’s best friends. Mercury is the ruling planet here: the planet that rules our minds, our thoughts, and all forms of Communication. In Gemini, it makes them the natural writers, poets, musicians, and speakers. I am reminded of George VI, who wasn’t supposed to be appointed King and had to overcome his speech impediment. Then, once he had the courage, he became an inspiration to many. We know your dualistic, beautiful-mind has lots to say, and the World is waiting to hear it.

Cancer: Home is Where the Heart Is

A crab without a safe & cozy Shell, where they can be themselves, may not be happy. A Home to call your own; a place where your emotions are free to flow with the people surrounding you(immediate-family, spouse, or children), that understand YOU, and will allow you to be just ‘You’. This is the foundation of Cancer: The Happy- home. Create your sanctuary. You are the most emotional of all signs because you are ruled by the Moon, that controls the Ocean-tides. Resolution with mother/ father, and finding peace with your own upbringing, if there are karmic ties that need to be cleared.. If there are things that need to be said, say them now. I can’t help to think of the Brady Bunch; how two families had to live together in harmony under one roof, and they did because emotions were always talked out.

Leo: Express Yourself Bravely

A Lion without a Pride, may not be happy. A Pride has a purpose, and they look to the King for direction. An audience always needs to be around this gracious, Social- being; they are the Center of attention, ruled by the Sun. The Sun is the light shining brightly through our hearts, like most signs, but especially for Leo’s; they must discover what they love through Creative, self-expression. This usually revolves around overcoming some fear. I think of Simba from The Lion King, who has many lessons to learn and overcome, but in the end, we all knew it was his destiny to rule. Allow your insecurities to fall by the Way-side. Do what you love, and do it with grace and passion. You are the Natural-born star. It’s your time to shine.

Virgo: Love Yourself First

A Virgo without a good routine, physically and emotionally, may not be happy. It is not because they lack discipline, or are seen as lazy- quite the contrary. Its because they think of others first. They are the natural-born Givers, and Teachers; they are the Mother Theresas’, and the Gandhis’ of our world. By giving up their life for others, they may neglect what they must do for themselves. Ruled also by Mercury, you have a naturally-organized mind, a ‘to do” list in your head of 100 things perfectly departmentalized. Learn to Love yourself first. Focus on you, and then others will follow and appreciate you more. Your family will understand that you need to work out for 20 mins before breakfast is started, and the dishes will wait without the dust running away. It will all be there for you when you get back. You’ll feel so much better once you get the YOU routine in order, and STAY on track.

Libra: Balance of Energy

Unhappy relationships equal unhappy life for these loving, Bright-beings. It can be through business, or in personal relationships. A Libra without another person in their life(a close friend, relative, or a significant other) may not be happy. Ruled by our planet Venus, this is where love and marriage are highlighted. They are the Scales of life; the ones who need to balance their energy the most, to feel alive and in good spirits. Work, social, and personal Time is all crucial to your well-being. Don’t give too much of yourself to your partner in life, and don’t spend too much time in isolation. I’m reminded here of Bridget Jone’s character; focused on her career, but has the support of close friends, and family around to guide her love-life, which is highlighted by a decision of two men. Can she choose the one who represents her energy the most? Vibes attract your Tribe; stay positive, and do you, and the right people will arrive in your life.

Scorpio: Commit to Your Passion

If a Scorpio is not Passionate about anything in particular in their life they, may not be happy. The sign most associated with Sex, the Mysterious, and the Mystical ones. They are creative beings ruled by not only Mars but the deep, transformative, icy-planet- Pluto. The most Powerful sign, they see beyond the surface, and through it all. A Surface-partnership, Project, or Life will just NOT do. They strive for big-business and big-deals. They are not scared to explore the depths of the cold-ocean so many are fearful of. I think of Martin Scorsese; taking chances of ridicule by bringing us movies like Taxi, Casino & Raging Bull, that explore the darker, aggressive, passionate-side of cinema. Death and transformation is a big part of these movies, and that is what Scorpio must become comfortable with. The idea of killing a project, ego, or partnerships, to bring to life new people, projects, and more awakened-self. Boredom is Death to a Scorpio. Learn to Let Go. Be obsessed with what makes you feel alive. Be in Love with those who connect with you at the deepest level, and Be the Phoenix that rises from the grave, to bring your gifts to light.

By Becca Martin | Thought Catalog


(March 21st to April 19th)

You have a powerful personality and you’re a great kisser. You have dominate characteristics and are more of a heat of the moment kind of lover. Making love isn’t really your thing, you prefer more hot-n-heavy action and you love to please in bed. Foreplay isn’t really your forte, you like diving in and getting to work.

(April 20th to May 21st)

The Taurus is a very sensual sign, so sex to you is a natural and fun expression of love. You’re more deep and you prefer sex to mean something instead of random hook ups. You’re good in bed because you care about your partner and find comfort in making them feel secure. You take your time with things and make sure your partner is satisfied completely, unlike Aries you don’t rush through foreplay because you know it is essential in bed.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Gemini’s are never, ever going to be boring in bed. You love being unpredictable and switching things up constantly. You’re probably into role play, or dressing up, or other more complex acts that will make sleeping with you hard to forget. Gemini’s can be considered a “freak in the sheets” in the best way possible because you have a reputation of being a little inappropriate.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Try to imagine cuddling and having sex at the same time, that’s what Cancer’s are like in bed. Cancer’s love affection, are very caring and are often submissive. While Cancers are typically not known for being wild, heat of the moment types of lovers, they are known for having open minds and are usually willing to try new things. If you’re a Cancer you enjoy giving your body to your partner to explore, while at the same time feeling an emotional connection to them.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Leo’s have big egos and like to be dominate, which is how they are in bed as well. You’re generally down to experiment sexually in bed as long as it doesn’t put them in a too submissive position making them vulnerable. You are good in bed because like your sign (a lion) you expect to be the best in bed and you will make sure to prove it. You also enjoying giving because with Leo’s pleasure is not a one-way street so you aim to please your lover in hopes to hear some moans and words of appreciation.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgo’s will rarely make the first move and they don’t thrive off of sex like most other signs, but fear not they are great lovers. You’re all about mind, body and spirit making you extremely kind and considerate. You also thrive when you feel comfortable, so good luck to anyone ever trying to have a one night stand with you. Virgo’s aren’t into quickies, as they aim to please and are known to be perfectionists so if at first they don’t succeed they will try again. If you choose to love a Virgo you will not be disappointed.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Libra’s love trying things and they will try things twice just to be sure. They love oral and they also love giving it. If you’re a Virgo you love your back being rubbed and your butts being touched. You often enjoy being submissive more than dominate and you often associate love and sex together. You are a very romantic and passionate lover and will make sure your partner is fully satisfied in bed.

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Scorpio’s are known as “freaks in the sheets.” Sex in their thing, almost like their religion, they dominate the Zodiac in the bedroom. You’re kinky and love rough sex (passionate sex might put them to sleep). You love foreplay and putting your partner in submissive positions. You love hair pulling, scratching, biting and would be the sign to even attempt to break the bed. Scorpio’s are wild and who ever winds up in your bed will be in for one hell of a ride.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Your adventurous and spontaneous side makes you a catch. Your partner will love being surprised by your instant turn ons and random quickies. Sagittarius’s are known to be curious so your partner will always be surprised by your choice of location and position, keeping your sex life vibrant and interesting.
