Do you know that sometimes you poison your relationship based on your zodiac sign, without you even knowing it?
Every zodiac sign has some specific negative characteristics that threaten to poison their relationships. These behaviors though insignificant initially can slowly poison the strongest of relationships with time.
In this article, we will talk about the insignificant toxic habits that slowly kill even the strongest of relationships.
How You Poison Your Relationship Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Here is how zodiacs self-sabotage their relationship:
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You let your anger control you.
Aries, you can poison your relationship by getting angry all the time.
If an Aries is guilty of one of the seven sins, it will definitely be wrath. Most of the time, anger gets the better of them and they tend to forget that words that are once said, cannot be taken back.
When Aries is angry, they say whatever comes to their mind without thinking about the consequences.
Being angry is okay, but only in small doses. If you give in to your anger every time you have a disagreement, it will poison your relationship to the point of no return.
Stop feeling angry all the time and take a moment to reflect. Once you approach the fight with a clear head and a calm demeanor, you will see that it’s easier to sort everything out.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You hold on to grudges.
Taurus, you can poison your relationship by holding grudges for eternity.
The biggest flaw of people belonging to this zodiac sign is that they tend to hold on to grudges as if their life depended on it.
If you hurt a Taurus, be rest assured that they will never forget it nor let you forget it. Even though repressing your true emotions is wrong, that doesn’t mean you will bring up old hurts at the drop of a hat.
Try following the mantra of ‘Forgive and Forget’. This might seem challenging to you, but if you want to have a stable and long-lasting relationship, you need to let old grudges go. Otherwise, it will continue to poison your relationship.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You never listen.
Gemini, you can poison your relationship by not listening to your partner at all.
Communication is one of the most important things when it comes to building a strong relationship. Unfortunately, people belonging to the Gemini zodiac sign tend to forget that sometimes.
In a happy relationship, both partners need to be heard when it comes to their opinions and feelings. But, most of the time, a Gemini tends to talk only about themselves and their problems.
Geminis tend to make everything about themselves, they talk more than listen, and sometimes even forget the fact that their partner needs some emotional and mental support.
Try to listen more. Focus on your partner’s needs. Try to understand what they are trying to say and work towards making them feel better. Remember that sometimes the best thing you can do for someone is just listen.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You take even the tiniest thing personally.
Cancer, you can poison your relationship by taking everything personally.
Cancers are known to be extremely sensitive individuals, with a strong emotional radar. Even though most of the time this serves as a positive point in their relationships, sometimes it can prove to be a bane too.
There is a thin line between being sensitive and over-sensitive, and this thin line can heavily impact your relationship.
If you take even the tiniest thing personally and let it play with your emotions, then your partner will have to tread on eggshells all the time.
They won’t be able to talk to you freely and this will gradually create a lot of distance between you too.
Make sure that you don’t take everything to heart, and try to be mentally stronger. This will not just save your relationship, it will also make your partner respect you more.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You are very dominating by nature.
Leo, you can poison your relationship due to your extremely dominating nature.
Leos tend to be very dominating by nature, and this is probably the biggest reason why their relationships do not last long. Being fierce and bossy can be attractive traits, but not when it makes your partner feel suffocated and unappreciated.
Most of the time, you want everything to go your way, without even sparing a second thought to your partner. How would you feel if the situation was reversed? Work on putting your partner first and focus on what they need and want from you.
You do not have to be a doormat or sacrifice your happiness entirely, but if you want a happy and long-term relationship, then it is imperative that you treat your partner as your equal.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You are overly critical of everyone and everything.
Virgo, you can poison your relationship by being excessively critical.
Virgos are known to have a sharp tongue and they are not afraid to use it, to the point where they forget how it makes their partner feel.
They are always judging their partners for the tiniest mistake and fail to understand that no one is perfect, including them.
Having unreasonable expectations from your partner and criticizing them every step of the way, is not going to help you sustain a relationship. So, stop being so critical all the time and learn to appreciate your partner once in a while.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You bottle up your emotions.
Libra, you can poison your relationship by bottling up your feelings.
Libras are generally mature individuals, but they tend to repress their feelings in negative situations and pretend as if everything is fine. This does not just take a toll on them mentally, it also keeps their partner completely out of the loop.
It is okay if things go wrong sometimes. It is okay if things are not perfect all the time. Repressing your feelings can never help your relationship in any way, rather it is doing more damage than good.
If you do not tell your partner what is going on in your mind, then how can you sort it out?
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You say ‘NO’ all the time.
Scorpio, you can poison your relationship by constantly saying “no” to everything.
Being a yes-man is not a good thing, but saying no to anything and everything is also not an admirable trait. This habit can lead to people, especially your partner, having a negative impression about you.
You must also consider your partner and their feelings before you decide to say “no” to something.
If your partner wants you to try out something, it might be because it will make them happy. Even if you don’t feel like doing it, you can compromise to make them happy.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You try to escape from every relationship.
Sagittarius, you can poison your relationship, by constantly trying to get out of it.
They are always looking for excuses to end their relationships, instead of putting in some effort and working on it. Sagittarians tend to focus on all the negatives in a relationship and use that as a basis for breaking up.
Sure, relationships can be tough sometimes, but why just focus on the negatives? A Sagittarius is an optimist by nature, so it will serve you well to be optimistic about your relationship too.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You think you are the smartest person in the world.
Capricorn, you can poison your relationship by trying to be over-smart.
Capricorns have the tendency to be a know-it-all, and this can play a big part in poisoning their relationships. By nature, they are intelligent and smart people, and this can sometimes go to their heads.
What you don’t understand is that, if you constantly belittle your partner by never caring about their opinions and discarding them, you are simply jeopardizing your own relationship.
Learn to accept the fact that you are not the only smart person in the room and that your partner can also teach you a thing or two. Make the resolution of being more accepting and open-minded.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You can be extremely aloof and distant.
Aquarius, you can poison your relationship by being cold and distant.
If your partner is coming to you with a problem or they are looking for some emotional support, your aloof nature might end up making the situation worse.
Keep in mind that every person needs mental support every now and then, and as a partner, you must be there to give them that.
Even if it makes you feel uncomfortable, it is important that you make your partner understand that you are always going to be there for them, no matter what.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You keep on complaining all the time.
Pisces, you can poison your relationship by complaining 24×7 and not accepting any solutions.
Can you imagine how frustrated your partner might feel, hearing you complain all day and every day?
Instead of repeatedly focusing on the negative, try to focus on the bright side too. This will help you find solutions to your problems and will also make sure that your partner does not feel pressured all the time.
So, those were all the self-sabotaging zodiac signs. Everyone wants to be in a happy and stable relationship but tends to forget that it takes two to tango.
If you want a meaningful relationship, you have to face your negatives and work towards changing them. Now that I have given you an idea about how you can work past your flaws, here’s to good times ahead!
