Aries is determined to do things their own way. Because they take care of things so well on their own, they may shy away from letting others know just how much they need them.
Taurus is dedicated to keeping their commitments, which can cause them to stubbornly refuse change. They need to trust that change is good, and embrace it with open arms before love can flourish.
Gemini is a bit of a flirt, so they never stay put long enough to establish any deep-rooted ties. They do this because they fear that connecting with someone will allow that person to see their deeply hidden dark side.
Cancer wears their emotions on their sleeves, causing them to be revealed more often than they’d like. This often puts them at the mercy of others. Cancer’s key to successful relationships is to allow themselves to be vulnerable in these situations.
Leo loves being in charge, but also knows this can mean others keep their distance. Other people will sometimes let Leo run the show because they seem so capable. However, the true key to healthy relationships and intimacy is to share power.
Virgo is in a constant emotional state of unworthiness, which causes them to think that if they reveal their imperfections others will run away. However, other people know Virgo holds themselves to a rigorous standard and would rather they feel free of expectation.
Libra tends to sweep relationship issues under the rug, preferring harmony to discord and quiet compromise to communication. However, intimacy is about being genuine, not pretending that things are great when they aren’t.
Scorpio thrives on delving deeply into emotions. However, Scorpio can sometimes be so intense and blunt that they keep other people at a distance. They need to learn to trust that others can and will learn on their own.
Sagittarius is footloose and fancy-free. They will also fiercely guard that freedom, and can turn tail and run when someone gets too close. Their biggest obstacle to intimacy is seeing intimacy as a trap.
Capricorn desires to be seen as strong, which forces them to hide their vulnerabilities. While they’re always open to supporting others, they often find that there’s no one left to support them. They need to learn to let others past their defenses.
Aquarius prefers logic to feelings, which can lead others to seeing them as cold. While they have a brighter and quicker mind than most, they still haven’t figured out how to let others into their heart.
Pisces is so skilled at being everything that everyone else wants to see in them that they don’t know what they want for themselves. They need to take a step back from others and spend some time learning what they need from themselves.
