We all have the potential to be a loyal, loving partner when we find that special person we want to spend our lives with, but for some zodiac signs, this trait comes much more naturally. Are you loyal to a fault, sticking by those you love regardless of the situation, or is this an area of your life that requires a little extra work?
While our society generally sees loyalty as a trait that we should all strive to possess, psychologists warn that blind loyalty may be more harmful than it is beneficial in our lives. Instead, they suggest finding a healthy balance between always ‘being there’ for those that you love and taking the time to think through each situation specifically. After all, if your act of loyalty is actually going to cause longer-term pain for yourself and those around you, would it not be better for everyone involved to stand up for your own opinions even if they go against those you love most? At the same time, however, some level of loyalty and trust can be found in those relationships we deem to be happiest and healthiest.
Astrologists are able to use the signs of the zodiac to predict which personality traits we naturally possess, and which would take a little extra effort to develop. This helps us to recognize our natural gifts and strengths, as well as to work through our perceived weaknesses and flaws. However, as we mentioned above, being at the top of this list may not be a sign of greatness! You can be too loyal… Where do you rank?
Here are the zodiac signs ranked from most to least loyal:
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)
You are completely and 100% loyal, viewing the concept as completely black and white, and you expect the same from your partners in return. While your partners know that they can always count on you to be by their side, you’re the perfect example of what happens when you take this concept too far – Jealousy, secrecy, and control are likely going to be the downfall of your relationship. You really need to work on understanding the concept of barriers and personal space.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
While others may possess great loyalty for selfish reasons, the same can’t be said for you Cancer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work to keep it in check. You live your life 100% by your heart, so when you enter into a relationship you give it all you’ve got, even if you happen to be hurt in the process. If you need to compromise everything to keep a relationship, this isn’t a healthy relationship. You deserve someone who is as devoted to you in return.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You may be surprised to see your name so high up on the list, after all, many zodiac signs accuse you of being nothing but self-centered and egotistical. Unfortunately, your rank on this list doesn’t entirely break free from that concept. You take pride in your relationship, believing that society’s view of your relationship reflects on who you are as a person. Therefore, a relationship that isn’t 100% devoted and loyal to one another would be a sign of personal failure. Try separating your relationship from your public image long enough to see it for what it really is.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
If there is one thing that you’re well known for, it’s your incredibly stubborn mindset. Most people jump to assume that this goes against any chance of being loyal – after all, you’re too stuck in your ways and on what you want first and foremost. The truth is that your stubbornness carries over to those that you love most. You aren’t quick to allow someone into your closest circle, but when you do, you would do anything for them. You will move heaven and earth for those you love, and you certainly wouldn’t be found anywhere but right by their side when times are tough.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
As a lover of harmony and balance, you believe that love can solve everything. Sure, you talk a great game, one that you’re well-known for. Why then aren’t you higher up the list? While you talk the talk, you don’t always walk the walk. The truth is that you are incredibly indecisive deep down and swayed far easier than you’d like to admit. This can lead you to stray in the very moments that you would preach loyalty and devotion. You have great potential, you just need to work on making sure your actions line up with your words.
Gemini (May 22 – Jun 21)
If Libra is described as ‘indecisive’, you already know you’re in trouble. After all, there is no one more indecisive than a Gemini. When you tell someone that you love them and will always be there for them, you truly mean it at that moment. The problem is that you then walk away and into a world of distractions, and your eyes definitely tend to wander. You may feel like you can’t help it, your mind is all over the place – how does someone stay completely focused and devoted anyway? It’s not easy, but it can be made to work if you want it badly enough.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
If you are known for anything, it’s your impulsive nature. While your fight and determination would put you much further up this list, there’s that ‘unknown’ element of your life, the unpredictable decisions that put you further down the list. You could be the most loyal lover for years, but when your impulsive nature takes over, throw it all away for one night of wildness and adventure. It really depends on the situation and how you’re feeling in the moment.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
There is no doubting the fact that you expect nothing but unwavering loyalty form those that you allow into your inner circle, after all, you set the bar incredibly high. The problem lies in the fact that you often set the bar impossibly high, and when someone falls short, they lose your interest and you’re already moving onto finding the ‘better option’ that you’re positive is out there somewhere. Until you accept that no one is perfect, you’ll never be completely loyal to those you love.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20)
You refuse to be bound by something as ‘silly’ as emotions, choosing instead to see the world through a lens of logic and facts – your primary focus being your own personal success and accomplishments. Unfortunately, for those seeking loyalty, it’s generally an emotionally driven decision that prioritizes relationships. For this reason, it’s no surprise that you’re further down the list. If someone fits into your image of the perfect life you’re creating, you’ll definitely go to great lengths, but if they fall short of what you need, fail to put the effort in, or no longer fit with your vision of the future, you’re gone before they even realize what’s happening.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The true romantic of the zodiac, you have spent your whole life dreaming of your own personal fairy tale and how it’s all going to play out. The problem is that you’re so lost in your dream world, that you believe relationships should work out magically without the hard work and effort that they require. You’ll fall head over heels for someone, pledging your unwavering dedication, only to get bored the second things get serious. After all, where’s the magic in the difficult discussions? In those moments, your mind and your heart have already started to move on and look elsewhere.
Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 18)
Driven by your ambition, you are sometimes blind to the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of those around you. Okay, by sometimes I mean quite often… as a result, you often make less than ideal decisions in your relationships, which ultimately end up hurting those that you love. You’re the person who wouldn’t even necessarily notice that they are cheating at the moment, only to look back on it after and regret the pain you caused. While this may lead you to see the situation as hopeless, avoiding love entirely, rest assured – it won’t be easy, but you can change your natural response to these situations.
Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 21)
Seeing yourself at the bottom of the list likely doesn’t come as a surprise in the least. You live a life driven by your need for adventure and new experiences and staying devoted and loyal in a relationship goes completely against that concept. You associate loyalty with commitment, and commitment means being tied down and denied the exciting life you want more than anything. There is a partner in crime out there for you, you just need to find someone that will embrace life with the vigor and ‘try anything’ attitude that you value so much. When you do, the sky’s the limit.
