(March 21st to April 19th)
You believe that there’s more good in people than there actually is. When you start to fall for someone, you are often blinded by your affection, and end up rationalizing negative traits to convince yourself they “aren’t that bad.” It’s not that you’re really choosing the wrong people, but that you struggle to see people for who they really are once your feelings are involved. You have to go the extra step to retain a sense of clarity when it comes to these things. You pride yourself on being logical, but this is the one area of your life in which you’re easily swept away.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re being hasty. Life exists in your mind’s eye, and because of that, you are happiest when things are cohesive and make sense. The idea that other people are finding the right relationships and settling down before you are can grate at you; or on the other hand, you get into a relationship and though you aren’t 100% sure about your partner, you become too attached to the image and want to uphold this kind of “perfect life.” A messy breakup is not part of your pretty picture, and you end up suffering for years longer than you need to because you aren’t as willing to go through the necessary trial and error of finding your real soulmate.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
You become obsessed with people too quickly. It’s not that you’re gullible, it’s that you’re easily taken by their positive qualities and you love how other people make you feel. You aren’t necessarily blinded by love, you’re just so deeply in love with love that you want to dive all the way in without ever really considering things from a more rational perspective (because what’s less romantic than that?!) You actually do make an incredible life partner, when you find the right person. You’re loyal, devoted and you will all but worship your significant other. The problem is you’re too willing to offer all of that to people who don’t care as much about you in return.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You’re the most underestimated romantic of the zodiac. While many people would be quick to recognize a Libra as having that title, it’s really you, Cancer. You fall fast and hard and are always wrapped up in your own beautiful little fairytale – one that very often only exists in your own mind. You fall for people who appeal to many of your emotions; you’re more likely to end up extensively involved with someone who makes you feel fulfilled or validated or inspired. When you combine your desire for settledness with the feeling of being understood, you misinterpret that to mean you’ve found your correct match. The good news is that you make for a world class partner when you are with the right s/o. The bad news is it can be a bit of a touch and go situation until you find them.
