“Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows.” – Paulo Coelho
The dating game can be absolutely exhausting! On one hand, you may find that ‘someone special,’ riding off into the sunset together. On the other hand, however, it may all come crashing down around you, leaving you with nothing but frustration, pain, and heartache. These failed relationships may be a result of outside influences, a change in your situation, or a toxic connection right out of the gate.
While there are steps that you can take to manage the heartache that comes from a breakup, wouldn’t it be better if there was a way to avoid this pain altogether? While there is no foolproof way to avoid a failed relationship, we can use our zodiac signs to help avoid a relationship that is doomed from the get-go. By looking at our individual personality traits, and how they will ‘click’ with the traits of other signs, astrologists can identify toxic relationships in the making.
These 6 zodiac combos bring out the worst in each other. Think twice before setting yourself up for heartache:
Sagittarius and Libra
Both Sagittarius and Libra are outgoing personalities that know what they want in this life. The problem, however, lies in the incredible difference in their life journey. Libra is bold, opinionated and power driven, wanting nothing more than to create a life of success and stability. This differs greatly from the adventure loving Sagittarius. Seeking excitement and new experiences, they refuse to settle down, always on the move. There is nothing that they fear more than being trapped or tied down, which is exactly what they will feel in a relationship with Libra.
Virgo and Pisces
While the old saying goes that ‘opposites attract,’ following this advice isn’t always going to set you up for success. In fact, the pairing of Virgo and Pisces highlights why this idea doesn’t always work. Logical and grounded, Virgo prefers to view their life through common sense, facts, and intellect. Meanwhile, on the other hand, Pisces are dreamers, tossing all logic aside in favor of their ideal dream world. Trying to find a common ground will only end with resentment on both sides. There are a few rare occurrences when these two can find a balance, but that is most definitely the exception to the rule!
Scorpio and Cancer
A relationship between Scorpio and Cancer is an emotional ticking time bomb, ultimately leaving behind its heartbroken and emotionally damaged victims. Sensitive and compassionate, Cancer lives life with their heart on their sleeve, exposing their vulnerable side to anyone that they welcome into their inner circle. For this reason, it is incredibly dangerous to open themselves up to a Scorpio. Mysterious, passionate and introverted, Scorpio knows what they want, and they are ruthless in their pursuit. They don’t care who they have to hurt in their journey to success, which will ultimately leave Cancer battered and bruised, a wounded figure in their rear-view mirror.
Capricorn and Gemini
The mind of Capricorn is one of order, rules, structure, and schedules. They never act before first considering all options, and carefully creating a plan that they believe can’t fail. Enter, Gemini. High energy, social, upbeat and somewhat scatterbrained, they prefer to follow the excitement in life, forgetting to step back and think through their actions. While Gemini will try to straighten up to make a relationship with Capricorn work, their efforts will eventually fall short. The two will annoy one another to death – maybe not actual death, but the death of their relationship.
Pisces and Aquarius
The biggest problem that is going to come to light when Pisces and Aquarius come together is their expectations in a relationship. Incredibly romantic by nature Pisces is looking for someone who will make their relationship a top priority, constantly spending time together and focus on one another. For independent Aquarius, this is all too much. They need their space, and a relationship with Pisces will leave them feeling smothered and overwhelmed. Their inability to provide Pisces with the attention that they crave will leave Pisces feeling unwanted and unloved.
Virgo and Gemini
Much like the relationship between Virgo and Pisces, Virgo and Gemini are far too different to make a relationship work in the end. Virgo knows how they believe their lives should be structured, keeping to a strict schedule and set of rules. This is boring and unnecessary in the opinion of Gemini. This social butterfly decides how they live their life based on where they can have the most fun and meet the most people. While Virgo loves to spend quiet time at home, this will drive a Gemini absolutely insane. There is nothing wrong with either individual, they just don’t fit well together.
