Zodiac signs have their unique personalities which dictate every aspect of their life – personal and professional both which includes interpersonal relationships and other social interactions.
However, we are often ignorant of how our zodiac-chosen personality affects us. We fail to identify the loopholes in our relationships; most prominently in our contemporary partnership.
Zodiac signs can be divided into four basic elements. Each signs falling under each categorization shares similar characters.
The four groups of the elements are:
- Fire – The fire element is one of spontaneity, inspiration, intuition, and big passions. Fiery guys and gals are excitable and impulsive and love to light a fire in others. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius fall under this element. (1)
- Water – The water element is one of compassion, kindness, steady flow, sensitivity, passion and healing qualities. They are highly intuitive and experience the entire spectrum of emotions. Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces fall under this element.
- Earth – This element encompasses characters like being workaholic, stubborn, hard-working, very productive and hoarding of possessions. The signs that fall under this element are Virgo, Taurus and Capricorn.
- Air – The air element is one of practicality, perception and being logical and having brilliant analyzing abilities. The signs that fall under this element are Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.
Here are some of the things that each signs in the separate elements groups do to ruin their relationships:
Fire Sign (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius)
You are generally proud and full of fiery passion. Your fundamental problem is your magnanimous temper.
You are passionate, but sometimes, it gets you all worked up. Your partner may tolerate it once or twice but if you keep throwing temper tantrums at the slightest provocation, then your quick-temper is a threat to the relationship.
Another thing is, you are quite blunt and straightforward. This is appreciable, without a doubt but sometimes you can get too harsh in the excuse of being genuine.
Truth has its place in relationships, but sometimes, you have to keep in mind that your partner deserves to be treated well too.
So, if you mention that you want to sleep with some famous celebrity, just to be real with your partner, he/she might get a bit disappointed; which is justified.
Even if you are to joke, you must consider if others are getting hurt because of that. Your reckless nature is what makes you blurt out something that you should rather keep to yourself.
As a fire sign, you have a lot of passion in you. If you stand by something, you will keep your ground and be quite passionate about defending your position.
While that is admirable, you must allow the opinion of others too. If the conversation isn’t mutual, then your relationship is undoubtedly going to suffer.
Earth Sings (Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn)
As Earth signs, you people are grounded.
You have a protective shield around you that keeps you strong and allows you to mix with people by maintaining a reasonable personal boundary.
But that shield that you have built around you is actually a result of trust issues from past experiences. It is completely understandable if you do not want to trust others blindly, but you can try trusting your partner.
Yes, it might seem like a major risk at first, but you have to make yourself a little bit vulnerable for the greater good.
Without a bit of vulnerability, your partner will not be able to understand you or what you are feeling in your soul. You will never be able to connect at greater lengths.
One of the other reasons why you want to keep a shield around your vulnerable spots may be because you have been single for a long time. Being single has its specialty and you love the independence that solitude brings.
However, when you carry it over to your committed life it can result in a lack of communication. You may forget mentioning, unintentionally, a raise or a lunch with a boss. This will make you seem aloof and distant without you intending to be so.
The best way to deal with this situation would be to engage in healthy communication with your partner. Set up a communication network between the two of you that works for both.
