Here's what you should look for in a significant other, based on your zodiac sign
Whether you love or hate or simply don’t care about Valentine’s Day, it’s always fun to take a peek at what the stars have in store for you. I mean, we certainly never mind taking a look at what our zodiac signs symbolize when it comes to our love lives. Because, let’s be real, love is hella complicated and we could always use a helping hand. Astrologer Jessica Adams serves as that helping hand in this case, guiding us on our journey to find the ideal personality traits our partners should have — all based on our astrological signs.
If you find yourself sitting across from a date who’s giving off anti-social vibes like no tomorrow, run! Instead, you should seek out someone who’s just as people-oriented as you are. Since you thrive around like-minded individuals who make you feel loved and supported, you should find someone who seeks out the same during their free time. However, neither of you should feel as though you need to merge friend groups to be together 24/7. It’s good for you both to have your own friends, and to have your own tribe for when times get tough.
As someone who often has their heads in the most creative of clouds, a bit of balance would work well for you. Specifically, if you could find a partner who keeps you down to earth, your relationship would certainly be the best of both worlds. Now, when we say down to earth, it’s important to note that we don’t mean boring. You should find someone who keeps you down to earth when you’re in the midst of escaping reality, but not someone who doesn’t share your artistic ideals. Essentially, you need someone who’s as creative as you are, but who doesn’t let their imagination carry them away from real life.
Right off the bat, you’re going to need someone who is ready and willing to give you all the support you need to succeed. As someone with a full-steam-ahead personality, which pushes you to reach for the stars, you can easily be intimidating to those who don’t have the same level of passion. That’s why you need someone in your life who is turned on by your drive. Not turned off by your fierce determination. At the same time, it would also do you some good to find someone who can reign you in and remind you to relax and, ya know, not work 24/7. Because you seriously deserve some downtime.
Since you always put 100% in all that you do, you simply do not have time for someone who is unwilling to focus all their energy on a project (or on your relationship, tbh). You do not need someone indecisive, someone lazy, or someone who’s simply not stable in your life. Instead, seek out a person who is willing to show you just how much you mean to them, whether that be through a home-cooked meal or spontaneous gifts. Plus, since you live life with a work hard, play hard mantra, it would be cool if you were with someone who enjoys the same hobbies. Someone who can work hard, but also play hard right alongside you.
In all areas of your life, balance is necessary. That’s because you have a rollercoaster of a personality, one that constantly bounces back and forth between contrasting traits. Of course, there is nothing wrong with this, since it means you’re adaptable — but it wouldn’t hurt for you to keep an eye out for a partner who offers steadiness. On those days when you’re feeling a certain inconsistency, you can look to this person as a beacon of equilibrium. This someone can help you in the form of communication — by allowing you to vent, but also by keeping in touch with you to make sure you know they are there.
Your emotions are a significant part of your being. They are the force that shapes your day, dictating exactly how you will be proceeding from the moment you wake up till the second your head hits the pillow. With this in mind, you seriously do not have time for someone who does not have time for your feelings. Specifically, you need a
good great listener. You deserve someone who understands that emotions are natural and that there is no such thing as a “negative emotion.” Ultimately, the person you allow into your life must have a keen understanding of the fact that you and your emotions are a package deal.
The spotlight loves you and you love the spotlight. That’s mainly because you have the type of energy that belongs in front of an audience. Now, while you probably don’t want a significant other who is a Leo (because fighting for the spotlight does not sound fun), it would be good for you to find someone who can match your infectious charisma. After all, there’s nothing worse than being around a downer. Rather, embrace the art of patience when it comes to finding someone who has an aura of positivity and enthusiasm. This someone may not be on stage next to you or in the audience, but they can be somewhere in between.
Four words: Loyalty above all else. Every single person in your life should reciprocate your fierce dedication to loyalty. Especially a significant other. Any partner who’s lucky enough to have you in their life should show it by way of loyalty. They need to show you the same care you are always willing to show them. And let’s be honest, chemistry is a big part of this. Your partner has to have that special something, which draws you to them time and time again. After all, you want to find someone who shows up for you, but you also want to be attracted to them, too, right?
No one needs to check your moral compass to make sure it’s pointing north. The same should be said of your partner. Since all things fair, just, and beautiful in this world are important to you, it would be great if you could find yourself someone who has similar values. Specifically, look for someone who believes that your relationship needs balance. You two should be putting in an equal amount of work, no more and no less. You should both be communicating — not only with each other, but you should also be checking in with yourselves. And it’s especially important that you have similar values because these are things you hold above all else.
As the type of person who exudes power and intensity, you don’t want someone in your life who feels the need to compete with you for that spot at the top. Then again, you also don’t want someone who feels intimidated or overwhelmed by all you bring to the table. So, who is it you should keep your heart open for? Well, your ideal match should be someone who feels protected by your power, someone who doesn’t mind your domineering spirit, and someone whose patience shines when your stubbornness gets the best of you. Essentially, your partner should make up for the areas you occasionally lack in, while still helping you embrace your innate power.
Without a single doubt, your partner must be able to embrace those moments when your spontaneity comes out to play. Specifically, they should not hold you back — or else you will be seriously unhappy. To make sure this doesn’t happen, get a feel for whether or not your partner has a knack for all things adventure. They should be independent, like you, but should also feel excited for those moments you two share together. If you suddenly want to go on a quick trip to a cool place, your partner should transform into your partner in crime and embrace the love of freedom you both (hopefully) share.
Though you may have a pessimistic view of your love life, that shouldn’t stop you from getting out there and finding someone who brings out the best in you. To put it simply, that someone seriously needs to have their shit together. You don’t have time for a slacker who doesn’t value the two Rs: Responsibility and reliability. In addition, due to your ambition, you aren’t going to fall head-over-heels for just anyone. That’s why they need to have a certain consistency to them, so you can rely on them in the long-run and know that they aren’t going to take your love for granted.
