As individuals, we all have different needs, desires, roles, and strengths within our relationships. Some of them come from our upbringing—the old nature vs. nurture argument. But what if we told you some just might come from the stars? Astrologers seem to believe so. Here is the one thing your partner needs most from your relationship, according to their zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21–April 20)
Born leaders with a knack for experimentation, Aries are strong-willed. If you find yourself in situations where your partner may feel stifled or stuck, let them take the lead and give them a bit of space. With just a little space for independence, both your Aries and your relationship will thrive.
Taurus (April 21–May 20)
Easygoing yet stubborn, a Taurus is responsible and practical. Because of this, they'll rely on you to encourage them to live a little. Let them thrive by pushing them, on occasion, just a bit out of their comfort zone while respecting their need for routine and practicality.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Vibrant Gemini is talkative, humorous and outgoing. They need social opportunities to thrive, as well as to be listened to. Find a balance with your Gemini partner by having both date nights in and time with friends where they can lead the conversation and feel social.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
The emotions of a Cancer can be somewhat (or a lot) unpredictable, and it might test your patience. What they'll need most from you is an understanding that their moods and feelings might be a bit inconsistent at times, but their love and commitment to you will never falter.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Leos are competitive, fiery, and passionate. They may come off as hot-tempered and high-energy, but more often than not it's all from a good place. When it comes to romantic relationships, they most need to feel needed and appreciated.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
You'll often find your Virgo deep in thought, being analytical and possibly even worrying about their next move. Be considerate of this, as they'll need reassurance and order in their daily lives—especially in their romantic relationships.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
A little romance goes a long way for Libras, who are sentimental, romantic, and lovers of love. Flirtatious yet calm, Libras will love a carefully planned (non-surprise) date night and will appreciate the little things.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Scorpios love adventure and are quite fearless in their pursuits of a good time, so indulge them and let them take the lead in planning trips or new experiences every so often. This will add a new flavor and air of excitement to your relationship and will keep them engaged in their energy in a positive way.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Fun-loving and often carefree, Sags might come off a bit irresponsible at times, but it's not their fault. Because of this, though, you might have to take on the role of the calendar keeper—planning events, managing your social calendar, and reminding them of important things. Just remember the fine line that exists between being helpful and being a nag.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Being determined, hardworking, and perfectionistic are all things that comprise a Capricorn. It's easy for them to get caught up in their professional lives that they can't let go and relax. What they need most from their partners is opportunities and encouragement to enjoy what life has to offer outside of work. This will help maintain emotional and mental balance.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Independent and open-minded, Aquarians need their space, so give them just that. Respect that they enjoy time alone with their thoughts and hobbies, and don't take it personally. They'll love you better because of it.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Pisces are typically gentle, loving, and empathetic souls with a desire to love and a tendency to hurt easily. Handle their emotions with care and let them take some time alone should they need it. They might not tell you they do, but you'll likely be able to pick up on it by their actions.
