(March 21st to April 19th)
You feel most cared for when you’re with someone who doesn’t try to dull your spark or tie you down. You love trying new things, exploring new places, and taking on new challenges, and you feel most loved when your significant other supports you and encouarges you in that respect, instead of trying to change you to adapt to their way of doing things.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re used to putting everyone else before yourself, so the most comforting thing in the world for you is when someone steps in and tries to be the one to take care of you for a change. Initially you tend to resist, but once you give in, the security and peace that comes from being taken care of and loved by someone else brings you incredible joy.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Nothing makes your heart burst like spending time with someone who doesn’t need you to be 100% ‘on.’ You are so used to lightening the mood, cheering everyone up, and always being the one who’s supposed to have a good time, that when you are finally around someone who just wants to relax on the couch with you or have a cozy night in, you feel like you can finally sit back, be yourself, and be loved for just being relaxed, calm, and contemplative.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You’re always the one sensing when someone else needs a pep talk, a venting session, or just to feel like they’re being heard and listened to. What makes you feel the most loved is when someone finally steps in and asks you if everything is alright. Even if they’re not as intuitive as you are and as easily able to locate the source of the problem, having a partner who makes an effort to show that they’re thinking about you and concerned about you is enough to make you happy.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
The most difficult thing for you is being ignored or talked down to. You’re a creative and expressive person, and what you appreciate most in a partner is someone who makes you feel respected and heard. Humor can also be important to you in a relationship, but at the end of the day, what makes you happiest when it comes to a significant other is being with someone who knows how to deal with your intensity and doesn’t get overwhelmed by passionate nature.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
People have taken advantage of you in the past because you’re a very giving, considerate, and reliable person. So what makes you feel most loved is being with someone who loves you for who you are, not what they can get out of you. Someone who stops you from doing the dishes and takes care of it themselves, or who asks you to hangout simply because they want to be around you, not because they need a favor from you. You feel most loved when you are simply appreciated for you.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Your charming nature allows you to get away with more than most, so you end up falling hardest when you’re with someone who calls you on your bullshit. Although your flighty and indecisive nature sometimes feels like the easiest way to be, you’re at your happiest when you are with someone who holds you accountable and expects more from you than just a fun, joyful evening.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
One of your biggest struggles in relationships is trust, so you are happiest and most comfortable with somebody who never makes you doubt their feelings for you or their commitment to you. You can be obsessive over tiny mistakes or things you’ve done wrong, so being with someone who helps you to shut your brain off and reminds you that you’re deserving of love is when you find yourself feeling happiest.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Even though it can sometimes be a shock to your system, you love being with someone who tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. You so often fall into the role of being the humorous and positive one, that you worry about still being lovable even when you can’t be that person. So the type of partner that makes you feel most loved and cared for is the one that lets you be human sometimes – the one who tells you that it’s okay to be worried and it’s okay to feel insecure sometimes and that they will still be there for you, no matter what.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
It makes you feel most in control when you are the more closed-off and pessimistic one in the relationship. That’s why your best match is the person who challenges you to take the leap, who refuses to back down and let you ‘protect’ yourself by assuming that your relationship can only end in heartbreak. You feel most loved being around someone who loves you for you, but who isn’t afraid to tell you to ‘stop being an idiot’ or to ‘tell your brain to shut up’ when you start convincing yourself that this can’t possibly work.
(January 21st to February 18th)
You have a very hard time with going all-in and addressing your own feelings – because it often feels safer to you to remain as aloof and detached as possible, even (and especially) when you’re falling in love. So the person who refuses to be intimidated by all that, the one who tells you to stop being a coward and to acknowledge the love that they’re unabashedly holding right in front of you, is the one who ends up being your forever person.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You feel most loved when you finally see the same amount of compassion that you give out to others being reflected right back at you. When you’re taking care of others and forgetting about yourself over and over again, it can be easy to fall into the trap of avoiding love altogether and focusing only on the wellbeing and happiness of others. Your true soulmate is the one who brings you into the moment, who makes you feel cared about and taken care of right now, instead of letting you look at love as a ‘someday, but not right now’ type of thing.
