The fear of love (or falling in love) phobia is known as Philophobia. Finding true love isn’t easy, but the most difficult is letting go of your love.

But once you find your reasons and start acknowledging these fears, maybe you will be able to work on them and find the courage to fall in love.
Though it will be an exaggeration to think that our zodiac signs can change our fate, it is also true that our stars affect our love life and thoughts, and as a result, astrology may have some answers to why some people are afraid of falling in love, here we have tried to take into account the personality traits that are unique to the signs and from there, we tried to find possible reasons for fear in the spheres of attachment, romantic intimacy, and relationships.
Here we have boiled down the reasons of why you’re afraid of falling in love according to your zodiac signs
1. Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
They are really fiery in their passions. When they obsess over a particular person romantically, they do it ardently. Their greatest fear is their same passionate intensity backfiring; that is their passion not being reciprocated and in turn, appearing to be just an overbearing personality. They get attached with difficulty but when they do, it’s not impossible to shake them from their resolve. And hence, they never want to be the one to break the relationship up and that is the reason they fear falling in love.
They don’t want to choke you up, and no matter what it appears to be, they just want to protect you; from EVERYTHING. But their execution of this protection is oftentimes known to be problematic with frequent usage of the phrase “I am protecting you from me (by breaking up)”; hence proceed prepared.
2. Taurus (April 20th- May 21st)
Like bulls in a fighting pen, they are focused when they are in love. They are traditional at heart and believe in finding the right person. Thing is, They are very independent and career-oriented people, they like to move in a systematic way. And that’s why being relied on someone for their feelings terrifies them.
Their greatest fear would be of the effect their romantic other has on them chalked out perfect lives and goals. Once they let someone in, they stay in one way or the other. Their biggest fear is change, now falling in love is scary for them because they think love will change the way of their living, their habits, and also them. This is not something they are quite ready for.

3. Gemini (May 22nd-June 21st)
A Gemini is an airy sign. They spend their entire lives trying to figure out how to be around people and how to fit in. Their mind is constantly fluctuating. They are unpredictable and that is why falling in love scares them as they are always contemplating the other person would be a better fit for them or not.
Another greatest fear of Gemini’s is not knowing how to be around their partner and how to act appropriately. And more importantly, they are an undecided lot. If they fall for you, they will be confused, about everything because they will continue trying to figure out how to be around you and other people and while trying to sail in two boats, sticky situations will follow.
4. Cancer (June 22nd-July 22nd)
They are by far the most ideal sign romance-wise, tailor-made for long-term relationships. They are committed, thoughtful, imaginative, loyal, friendly; if you end up marrying a Cancer, the only fights you’ll have will be about what you want to have for dinner; and the most likely outcome would be them agreeing with you.
Sounds perfect? There is one tiny catch. They are insecure to a morbid level. And it is mostly about how if you are happy if they are treating you well enough. This has been known to lead to a number of fights. Also, they have high expectations from romances; which causes them to commit as much as they do. If and when you do not meet these expectations, there might be episodes. They are true believers in love but they fear that one might not be able to reciprocate their feelings.
5. Leo (23rd July- August 22nd)
They are a proud race who values their pride and extreme rationality above everything else. They think highly of themselves and naturally, their expectation from their partners are also quite high. They think their partner might not be good enough for them or might not be able to satisfy their emotional needs. That is why they are quite wary of falling in love. They know their worth, and won’t settle for less.
Their only fear: Love itself. They are aware of the rose-tinted glasses love brings as an added package and of its consequences. They know how their senses will be compromised and their pride shattered if something goes wrong and this thinking itself invariably causes them to shy away.
6. Virgo (August 23rd- September 22nd)
Their greatest strength is also their greatest shortcoming: the ability to see the best in the people around them. Their personalities have something Pre-Lapserian about them, innocent and unable to process the thorns in beds of roses. As a result, they will invariably be afraid to fall in love, out of fear of betrayal; something that has been a constant in the smallest or largest of ways all their lives. Virgos are perfectionists and they allow people to see only the perfect things, they think if they let someone in, they will become vulnerable and transparent which is definitely a no-no for Virgos.
Virgos want the best, sometimes they are certain that no one around them is worthy of love, not even themselves. Yes, they are critical that way. They fear they will be with someone who won’t be able to live up to their high expectation.
7. Libra (September 23rd- October 22nd)
They are all too aware of their own faults and shortcomings. They know they aren’t perfect. And this is their greatest fear as well: Ending up showing their faults to the one they love and cause disappointment. Causing someone else pain is the last thing that can enter their minds which is often driven by a strict sense of justice.
They are romantic souls and a born peacemaker. In this pursuit, they compromise a lot and develop the fear of showing their true self, their negative and ordinary traits. They are the seeker of true love, but their indecisiveness makes them stick to casual flings only.
8. Scorpio (October 23rd- November 22nd)
They are some of the most alert and perceptive individuals you will meet in life. Also, they happen to be quite a judgmental type. They can spot flaws in others very quickly and quite accurately. This is also their greatest fear that if they fall in love with someone, they know that there is a possibility of them finding something they don’t like later on. This would make the entire romantic experience salty. The fear of being rejected runs deep in their mind.
Scorpions are known for their secrecy just because of their inability to trust one. They are terrified of the idea of someone betraying them, that once they let go of their barrier, someone might come and sabotage their feelings in the name of love.

9. Sagittarius (November 23rd- December 21st)
They are restless and innately nomadic, even when it comes to relationships. They don’t have fear; it’s their partners who should be afraid of them. They never want the other to be too comfortable and stable in a relationship; simply because it means settling. For them everything has to be a far-flung adventure and people must put up with them and never the other way around.
Their curious and adventurous nature makes them fear commitment in any relationship. They are also brutally honest creatures, they look for a companion more than they look for a soulmate. That is why they think it’s difficult to find someone who will match their level of honesty and originality. They biggest fear is that they will lose themselves in order to find love.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd- January 20th)
The most disciplined and practical sign of all. They are loyal to a stubborn level. And they realize that even if things don’t work out their loyalty won’t leave their bedside in a hurry and that is their greatest fear. They don’t want to move an inch from their disciplined, well-order life, and they are afraid that giving in to emotions will make them do just that.
Unpredictability is what scares them and so does love because it comes with a package. Capricorns are the most ambitious and work hard to get their success. They fear that falling in love will make them unfocused and distract them from their goal. Their fear of losing is what makes them fear losing their heart.
11. Aquarius (January 21st- February 18th)
They are oftentimes paradoxical in the way that they have high expectations from themselves and also pride. When they fall in love with someone, they know that they will end up carving across for themselves which would be too heavy to carry. They will constantly fear not getting your approval and will dread disappointing you.
They are called the loners, they don’t mind being alone actually they like it. They may be more freedom seeker than of Sagittarius people. They fear falling in love because they don’t want to stay restrained. They think their individuality, their uniqueness would be compromised if they follow the footsteps of this common thing called love.
12. Pisces (February 19th- March 20th)
Their greatest fear is being pulled out of the water of self-control they assume around them. They fear the vulnerability which comes with sharing your deepest and darkest secrets with the person they love. They are also afraid of the fact that their partner might just enable this tendency of theirs, which is their getting too emotionally attached.
Pisces are the giver, the nurturers, the most compassionate of all. That is why people tend to take advantage of them or may have already taken advantage, leaving them shattered. That is why they fear being broken again, falling in love again. They are the dreamers, they build a perfect fantasy land for themselves and they fear that someone would not appreciate these dreams.
