We’re bombarded every day by magazines and websites advising us how to find our soul mate. But how honest are you being with yourself? Is a small or a huge part of you content being single? Not every sign is delirious about being part of a perfectly matched twosome.
Virgo is probably top of the list for self sufficiency, especially the female of the species. They can be phenomenally picky about prospective partners, to a degree where they put off commitment for years and years. But they have to watch that they don’t get too out of touch with their earthy animal side and end up perpetually alone.
Aquarius is next since they are never happy about claustrophobic partnerships. Their motto is: “Spread your favors and friendliness around – the more the merrier.” They’ll only agree to a match if they’re sure there’s plenty of space to stay independent.
Capricorn can be a touch like Virgo, defensive, workaholic and not inclined to disappear into swoons of rapture about a blissful mating. That is until they fall rapidly and inexplicably into a romance that astonishes them – and everyone around them!
Pisces? Well they adore the thought of a soul mate, the search, the seduction, the whole dream factory. But when push comes to shove, they are never sure that what is being offered matches up to their “perfect” inner vision. That said, Pisces needs a practical helping hand through life, so will often settle for their second best just to get along.
Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini are the adventurous signs and do like a good mate to keep them company along the way. Given their propensity for having a low boredom threshold, they can “chop and change9” their mates several times in their lifetime – especially the male of the species.
Cancer, Taurus and Leo are the security-conscious and home-focused signs. They don’t so much want a soul mate as a someone to help set up house, produce a family and give stability. For Leo this also includes status and an admiring audience.
The two most likely to desperately need another half are Libra and Scorpio, though for not the same reasons. Libra is known as “the relationship sign”, not because it’s driven by matters of the heart. It’s an Air sign, fairly detached, and never feels comfortable without another half to make it feel whole. Scorpio on the other hand is intensely emotional and really needs an equally passionate partner to merge with. Therein lies their bliss.
