You can improve your odds in love and other relationships by learning a little more about what type of relationship might be best for YOU – all simply based on when you were born.
Read below to learn a little more what you need in a partner, according to your zodiac.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Courageous Aries are willing to risk it all for love, and their determination to win over a potential mate – whether or not it’s a suitable match – is always admirable! Because they are honest by nature, they will find fault with partners who misrepresent the truth. Alternatively, they will sometimes be blunt to a fault, so thin-skinned loves need not apply. Their passion runs deep so they’d be wise to pair with someone who will take this in stride.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Because Taurus is so reliable, they cannot pair easily with a flaky individual. Steady like a stream, the Taurus lover makes for a wonderful partner since they are patient and stable people by nature. They’re looking for devotion and adventure to balance out both their possessive and practical natures.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Always bear in mind that Gemini are the twins of the zodiac, meaning they can feel strongly in two different directions AND they are extremely adaptable to most situations. Therefore, when looking for a partner in life, it’s important for Gemini not to choose someone too stifling or set in their ways. They should seek a consistent and nurturing partner to be the calm in their storm of various pursuits, passions and activities.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers are homebodies by nature and would certainly prefer someone on the same page. While they don’t mind a night on the town (in fact, the more glam, the better!), their nature is more emotional and loyal, and they crave a partner who will listen to them and make them feel heard. On the flip side, Cancers can have their fair share of moodiness, so they need to match up with someone who is patient and can soothe their insecurities when needed.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

A Leo is your all-around good-time guy or gal! They are cheerful, lighthearted and fun and are best suited to someone with a similar mindset. Creativity and passion rule their world, and their love adventure will surely be a magical ride. Leo’s partner does however need to be of a forgiving and patient nature in order to put up with their occasional self-centered and inflexible streaks.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos are pragmatic and practical and don’t always understand people who have their head in the clouds a bit. A hardworking and loyal partner will be a sure match for love. Because they are often “in their head” – whether it’s worry getting them down or they are overworking themselves – it will be best to have an optimistic and upbeat other half, and the two will balance each other nicely.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Whomever snaps a Libra up off the dating market will be lucky indeed! Libras are by nature quite fair-minded and cooperative and don’t like to rock the boat too much. They love spending time with loved ones and would pair well with someone who likes having a tight-knit circle of pals. A take-charge partner could be a great match for indecisive Libra because they will be the last to confront a difficult saturation.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios are the most mercurial group in the zodiac family. Their passionate and sometimes volatile behavior means they’ll need someone with a devoted and tolerant nature. Their patience will pay off though, because Scorpios are devoted friends and lovers, and they are quite resourceful when the situation calls for it!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarians are just marvelous partners in many ways, because they’re generous and optimistic, and they love to crack a joke or two. They might not pair well with someone too serious because opposites don’t always last the long haul. A Sagittarius partner has the best intentions in the world, but don’t promise more than you can deliver or else unmet expectations will sour the relationship.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

No-nonsense Capricorn might do well to seek out someone who is a little less grounded to balance them out. Sometimes their responsible and disciplined nature might mean they let some of the fun of life slip through their fingers. A lighthearted partner will also fare better when Capricorn inevitably becomes a little intolerant or condescending.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Forward-thinking Aquarians always have original ideas and love to march to the beat of their own drummer, but by nature most are looking for a lifelong companion. Aquarius partners will need to be with someone who is able to communicate well AND get them to open up with their feelings honestly – otherwise they will become aloof and will retreat further into their shell.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Artists at heart, the Pisces mindset is similar to a wise owl: gentle, intuitive and a little musical at times! They will need a partner who will support this type of behavior and balance out their desire to occasionally leave reality for a while. A strong and supportive lover will be best for sensitive Pisces because they do well with an anchoring presence in life.
