Love – this is an underlying reason for so much of what we do in our daily lives. Throughout life, we actively seek it, create it or share it, believing that it is the key to happiness.
This is where it gets much more difficult – while we understand the fundamental importance of love in our lives, we still struggle to understand it, measure it or explain it in a tangible way that we can use to improve our own experiences. Is it an extension of our spiritual self, or something that can be explained biologically?
The more experts study the subject, assess and understand the different phases, types, and reactions to love in our lives, the better we understand how this powerful force works in our lives.
Researchers have even discovered that feeling feelings of love and affection trigger chemical changes in the brain that combat stress, create a sense of security, soothe the mind, improve energy, and create feelings of “closeness” with those around us.
Despite its many advantages, the quest for love is far from easy. Along the way, you will likely encounter bumps in the road, experiencing grief, confusion, pain, anger, and disappointment. Yet, recognizing that the end result is worth it, we get up, brush our teeth and keep moving.
Good news, although there is no foolproof way to determine exactly who you should pursue a relationship with, there are a number of indicators of whether someone is likely to be a good or bad fit in your life. These predictions focus on the small details of our personality – strengths, weaknesses, desires, natural reactions and fears.
As our zodiac sign provides us with a basic understanding of these concepts, it can also be used at a very broad level to assess who we are most likely to “click” with and the relationship that is likely to go down in smoke. Although this is not a definitive analysis, here is a small overview to help you in your search for “the one”.
Which zodiac sign should you avoid dating?
Aries: Avoid Leo
Both of you have incredibly powerful and dominant personalities, you may be addicted to the excitement and energy that initially comes from the connection, however, that same energy is incredibly volatile, and it won’t be long before it explodes into your face.
Both determined to take matters into their own hands, this duo will fight on a daily basis, and not just a little disagreement. If you’re ready for World War III, you might be ready for the momentum that an Aries/Leo couple will bring.
In the end, it will end with a major outburst of screams, arguments, and broken hearts – not the future you are looking for.
Taurus: Avoid Leo
Loyal to a fault, Taurus will lavish affection on his partner, who will fuel the incredible ego of a Leo from the start. It will work fine for a short time until Leo begins to feel the possessive, stubborn and ingrained influences of their partner Taurus.
Taurus will be blind to the fact that there is a problem, treating his partner as a prize. However, Leo will feel suffocated, trapped and bored.
They will only make an honest effort to make it work, determined to keep up appearances, then one day they will break up and simply leave without explanation. Confused, without any indication that it is coming, Taurus will be heartbroken and feeling bitter.
Gemini: Avoid Scorpio
Gemini is the social butterfly of each group, jumping from person to person, flirting with anyone looking in their direction. While the passionate and mysterious energy of a Scorpio will grab their attention from the start, be warned.
This passion is deeper than Gemini can hope to be prepared for it, and they take everything to heart.
Although Gemini may try to play by the rules of their partner Scorpio, they will feel suffocated and will likely start to sneak around to hide their actions just for fun.
In the end, the secret will be revealed and Scorpio will explode completely, attacking Gemini and leaving them incredibly injured and demolished.
Cancer: Avoid Aries
The incredibly sensitive nature of Cancer is fueled by open communication, sharing how they feel at some point. It is the opposite of the way Aries operates, choosing to bottle his emotions and keep his character independent and “strong”.
Cancer may try to minimize their emotions to make it work, however, these feelings will eventually come to the surface and when they eventually bubble up, Aries will be confused, not knowing how to handle the situation, and Cancer will feel misunderstood, alone and unloved.
Leo: Avoid Aquarius
This association may actually seem to work very well at first. Leo will happily act as a powerful figurehead, while their knowledgeable Aquarius partner whispers in their ears, providing them with the advice they need to succeed.
As Leo basks in the spotlight, Aquarius will begin to feel resentment towards everything he does. It’s not that they want public recognition for their efforts in the relationship, just a little recognition from their partner.
When things don’t change, Aquarius will simply disappear one day, ghosting their partner, leaving Leo hurt and confused.
Virgo: Avoid Capricorn
This will foster a deep understanding between the two, who may feel comfortable, but the absence of emotion will mean that their partnership is devoid of romance and passion.
It is a functional partnership, but it would be better suited to lead a committee together or team up on business engagement, rather allowing them to find someone who will truly share the emotional side of love.
Libra: Avoid Cancer
Libra operates in a world of order and balance, and they spend much of their time creating this ideal environment in everything they do. Cancer, however, is the exact opposite dynamic – emotional, exaggerated and unpredictable.
As Cancer opens up to their partner, discharging their complex web of emotions just in search of someone to hear them, Libra will immediately jump to try to “correct” the situation.
This will leave Cancer feeling guilty, suddenly becoming silent. The breakdown in communication goes against the basic rules of relationships with Libra, forcing them to end the relationship without further discussion.
Scorpio: Avoid Pisces
Intense, passionate and more than many can handle, Scorpio may be attracted to the light and joyful ways of Pisces, but over time the fundamental differences between the two will make the connection at a deeper level impossible.
Pisces will feel like Scorpio is still dragging them down, while the unpredictable nature of Pisces will leave Scorpio suspecting that they are sneaking behind their backs making plans and living a secret life.
In both situations, it violates trust, and it’s one aspect of a relationship that both say is necessary for a successful relationship. Unless the two can find a way to communicate, they will both feel cheated on.
Sagittarius: Avoid Virgo
At first, this relationship will be a fun challenge for Sagittarius, helping Virgo to abandon her super analytic ways and “relax a little”. Over time, however, the need to constantly refocus their partner’s thought process will become frustrating.
Slowly their efforts will go from convincing Virgo to join their adventures, in search of adventures without their partner, spending more time with friends and less time together.
This will highlight the huge fundamental difference between the two, as everyone begins to connect with others who truly understand their way of thinking and their ideal lifestyle.
There will be no major break-up, the relationship will slowly die out until one or both parties move forward.
Capricorn: Avoid Libra
Although at many levels the need for balance for which Libra is best known may seem ideal for Capricorn, it will not be long before they realize that there are many areas of life where they don’t quite work.
This is especially true in the area of finance, where Capricorn is incredibly organized and dedicated, with their carefully planned budgets, and Libra is ready to throw all caution to the wind. Serious conversations and game planning can help grease the wheels for a while, but that only prolongs their inevitable break.
One day, Capricorn will realize that he must find someone who takes his future as seriously as they do.
Aquarius: Avoid Taurus
This stability may be attractive at first, but it will not be long before Aquarius begins to feel suffocated and restricted, desperately seeking any freedom or “space” in his relationship.
This will force Taurus to tighten its grip, feeling as if it is losing control which makes them feel comfortable. Finally, Aquarius will finally have enough, breaking up and moving away.
Pisces: Avoid Gemini
There is no one who believes in the idea of “ideal romance” than Pisces, the dreamer. You have long-established your idea of the “perfect relationship” and now, as an adult, you seek it. Affectionate and funny Gemini may seem right at first, but remember that every Gemini has two sides.
The first time they show their other half, they will immediately turn off Pisces, making them unsure of what they are dealing with. This will often be made worse by a complete breakdown in communication.
If they both manage to get through this moment, they will probably find happiness together, meeting their mutual needs, otherwise, they will both end up heartbroken and bored by the very idea of love.
