Do you believe love is still alive in America today? If you’re still among the hopeless romantics, you’re not alone! A 2017 survey revealed that 87% of Americans still believe in the existence of true love. It’s the thing of fairy tales – the idea that you will find that one ‘special someone’ out there. From a young age we are taught to seek out our ‘happily ever after,’ but unlike in the fairy tales, love in the real world doesn’t always work out.
Love is messy, fickle and unpredictable. Just when you think you’ve got the game all figured out, someone changes the rules and you’re back to square one. One of the biggest mysteries of the world, love defies science and leaves us with a sense of wonder. But how do you navigate something that you don’t understand?
Rather than focusing on logic, we need to open our eyes to matters of the heart and soul. By better understanding the way that our minds work, the thing that we hold dear and how our individual energies impact our judgment. One way to do this is to look to astrology. By studying our zodiac signs and the personality traits that they possess we can empower ourselves to predict the way we will react to various situations. This includes the things that attract you to others, the strengths you possess in a relationship and the triggers that will ensure that your relationships fall apart.
What is the one thing that will drive you to walk away from love?
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Betrayal
You view life as a battle, and you are the brave warrior. Every day you continue to fight – for love, for happiness and for those that you hold dear. All that you ask for in return is that your loved ones remain honest and true, upholding your moral code. When someone betrays you, you don’t give second chances.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Broken Heart
Strong, stubborn and dependable, those born under the sign of Taurus are able to hold their own, and they keep themselves shielded in order to keep themselves safe. When they finally trust someone enough to let their guard down, this reveals an incredible vulnerability. It is only then that they allow themselves to be in the position that they could be hurt. They trust those they love, but if their hearts are broken it will only happen once.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Battle of Wits
Masters of knowledge, intellect, and matters of the mind, there is nothing that a Gemini can’t figure out if they set their mind to it. If anyone thinks they can outsmart a Gemini, they are mistaken! Not only will they quickly figure out your game, but they will beat you at it. Then they will leave you and your games behind as they walk away.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Abandonment
Those born under the sign of Cancer are emotional, sensitive and compassionate. When they love, they love with their whole hearts. They are sweet and kind, but they are also possessive, and they highly value emotional security. Their greatest fear is abandonment, and even the earliest sign is enough to send them running the other way.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Play the Fool
The ‘King of the Jungle’ stands tall above all others, with their incredible self-confidence, pride, and power. Status is incredibly important to them, and they need someone in their life that will help to build them up and encourage their endeavors. If, however, someone undermines, insults or questions them, they can show themselves out the door.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Lies and Deception
Believing in a world of hope and love, those born under the sign of Virgo are quick to trust. The main reason that they can so easily bare their soul is the fact that they believe everyone else in the world prioritizes honesty to the same level that they do. When someone bursts this bubble, telling a lie, they instantly lose all faith.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Disturb the Peace
Those born under the sign of Libra spend their lives focused on peace, balance, and justice. They believe that there is a natural order to the world, and everything has its place. They will go to great lengths to maintain this peace in their lives, which is why they have no room for anyone that may take steps to mess it up.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Secrets
Passionate, wild and driven, life with a Scorpio is never boring. They understand the beauty in life and seek to truly live and enjoy every moment. When they seek love, they are looking for a partner in crime – someone to face the world with them against all odds. They need a teammate and they have zero patience for secrets, lies, and deception.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Loss of Hope
The eternal optimist, those born under the sign of Sagittarius live a life of adventure, excitement and new experiences. They are always looking for the next great thing, and it is that lust for life that keeps them motivated. If someone is up for adventure, they would love to take them along for the ride. If, however, someone is going to strip them of this hope, they aren’t about to tolerate that negativity.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Lack of Effort
Devoted, logical and focused – when a Capricorn knows what they want in life they will dedicate everything that they have to make it work. This carries over to their love life, where they will work hard to make their relationship work regardless of any challenges that they face. They only have one expectation from their partner, that they will show the same dedication. They want someone who will remain devoted for the rest of their lives, or they aren’t interested at all.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Boredom
Known as the quirky and eccentric sign of the Zodiac, those born under the sign of Aquarius have no interest in blending in or becoming one of the many mindless drones in this world. They value their individuality and aren’t about to sacrifice it for anyone. When they fall for someone, they are attracted to the qualities that make them different, and the only thing that will cause them to walk away is when they neglect their uniqueness and begin to change.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Give Up the Dream
Always the dreamer, those born under the sign of Pisces live their life with their head in the clouds. They refuse to allow anyone to hold them back, inspiring the world and bringing light into every room they enter. They have faith in the unknown, and they need someone who can share in this hope and desire. If they notice that someone is holding them back, or trying to silence their dreams they will banish them instantly from their life.
