In relationships, we all have needs. Whatever these needs are, if our partners manage to meet them, relationships remain strong. But if you don’t know what your partner needs from you, then it’s a good idea to take a look at their dominant personalities. Are they independent but secretly sensitive? Or are they shy when it comes to asking for what they want in your relationship?
One way to figure it out is through their zodiac sign, your horoscope can tell you what you need in a relationship, which can lead to a better understanding of your emotions, as well as deepen your connection with your significant other by knowing their sign and the key points that they thrive off of.
Aries are strong and independent people with a vulnerable side that has to be nourished in a specific way. They don’t like to take the back seat or play the damsel in distress for a second. As an Aries, you need action and admiration from a partner to feel your most loved. It doesn’t mean they have to worship the ground you walk on or that you’re egotistical; you just want to feel cherished for the qualities someone appreciates most and feel like you’re genuinely wanted for legitimate reasons rather than simply be one-half of a pair of oblivious lovebirds.
Tauruses like security and crave stability in relationships. You need to know that your partner is in this for the long haul, so you need consistency in the form of couple rituals and plenty of one-on-one contact.
Geminis are fun-loving go-getters that need a relationship fueled by spontaneity. Strong communication and adventure are best for your relationships, as they’ll leave you feeling closer to your partner but never bored or stuck in the same place.
Cancers are soft and emotional, and likewise, need a relationship that provides them with safety. An ideal partner for a Cancer is nurturing and patient, someone who loves to create and reflect upon memories together.
Leos are wild and eccentric. If you’re a Leo, then you need someone who treats you like you’re special through admiration, all the while keeping you on your toes and offering you a company that is both entertaining as it is emotionally gratifying.
Virgos are giving souls, so they want to feel needed. Although it’s important that both parties show affection and appreciation in a relationship, a Virgo can really feel their best when they know that their loved one needs them and that their support and help with something is deeply appreciated. Reliability is a key, the foundation of a greater cycle of giving and take.
Libra are all about equality in a relationship. You don’t want to feel like you’re being overly spoiled or the one giving all the attention. Romance in the form of intimate one-on-one dinners and similar atmospheres, as well as equality between you and your partner, will lead to the highest level of happiness.
Scorpios are emotionally reserved and don’t open up easily, so a meaningful relationship will require truth above all else. Having a sense of control from the beginning will enable you to feel more relaxed as you test the waters, get to know someone and ultimately reach a point of closeness and genuine intimacy.
The mischief-loving Sagittariuses need a travel companion who will always be up for something new and exciting. Adventure and freedom are the key ingredients for a successful relationship with a Sagittarius, and you need someone who will always stick by your side and is ready to move on to the next greatest thing.
Capricorns are no-nonsense beings who need respect and sincerity in a romantic partner. You may not mind being wrong or having an argument once and a while, but any of the typical guessing games dating couples play are beneath you. You have a strong sense of self and need someone who respects values that quality as much as you do in them.
An Aquarius isn’t the most sentimental of romantic partners. It’s not that you can’t fall in love or don’t enjoy being in a relationship; you just want to feel like you have a best friend instead of strictly a lover. You want to be embraced for your individuality and have plenty of space to live your life to the fullest, all while knowing you have someone who you can always rely on.
Pisces are sensitive dreamers. You’re the type that, despite any past heartache, deep down still yearns for that fairy book love. You need a connection that is electrifying and almost palpable, as well as faith in a partner to always be there and who won’t judge you for any of your feelings or wild dreams. You’re self-sacrificing and empathetic, so you need a partner who will allow you to give freely of yourself without taking advantage and never returning the favor.
