Also, your agile mind is skilled at figuring out feelings without ever feeling them. Getting into the messy realm of emotions scares you, but it’s the key to intimacy.
8. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
People sometimes feel threatened by you, Scorpio, which can be an obstacle to closeness.
It’s not that you avoid intimacy; you thrive on delving deeply into feelings and confronting issues. It’s just that your intensity and blunt honesty can be too much for others. And, they may feel you want too much.
On the other hand, you may hide your deepest feelings, afraid that if you open up you’ll be betrayed. You need to learn to trust more.
9. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Yours is the sign of the eternal bachelor, Sagittarius. Footloose and fancy-free, you fiercely guard your freedom and often turn tail and run when people get too close.
Your biggest obstacle to intimacy is considering commitment to a trap, associated with the boring and humdrum.
The solution is to find a partner who’ll give you a long leash – but in return, you’ll have to promise to stick around for the tedious parts.
10. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You want to be seen as the strong one, Capricorn.
Capable, sure, even stoic, you shy away from the realm of emotions and are loathe to let your vulnerabilities show. Others end up leaning on you, but what happens when you need help?
You need to learn how to let others past your defenses and love you. Once you shatter the illusion that you’re invulnerable, then caring becomes a two-way-street, and true intimacy is yours.

11. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Like Mr. Spock from Star Trek, your sign prefers logic to feelings. You’re seen as self-contained, even chilly, and have trouble expressing what’s in your heart.
Because you possess a brighter, quicker mind than most, you think it ought to serve all your needs. You fear losing your freedom if you let others in.
Yet to avoid the fate of loneliness, you need to open up and explore the territory of the heart.

12. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Your biggest obstacle to intimacy, Pisces, is a lack of self-knowledge.
You’re such a chameleon, skilled at being all things to all people, that you may not know what you really want. As you spend some time alone, apart from others’ needs and feelings, you’ll create better boundaries and lose the need to rescue those you love or let them take advantage of you.
You’ll also find that place of strength that fosters true intimacy.
