Intense, obsessive, loyal, determined and passionate--those are the words that Monte Farber and Amy Zerner choose to describe people born under the sign of Scorpio in their book, "Astrology Gems: Scorpio." The Scorpio tendency to hide deep feelings behind a wall of mystery attracts people from many astrological signs, but only a few can slip around that wall to earn the key to Scorpio's love--his trust.
Aquarians, born between Jan. 20 and Feb. 18, may know the definition of the word "impossible," but few will accept impossibility as an option. People born under the sign of the Water Bearer are agile thinkers, often with idealistic aims and grand schemes to better the world. Unlike the stereotypical dreamer, though, Aquarius inspires practicality and concrete visions--if an Aquarian is drawing up blueprints for a starship, you can start packing your bags for the trip. On the other hand, those born under Aquarius are uncomfortable with emotions. They'll talk all night about ideas, but don't expect to hear about the devils that inhabit their nightmares.
Earthy Taureans, born between April 20 and May 20, have an undeserved reputation for being unsophisticated and a bit boring, but anyone who delves beneath the typical slow-and-steady Taurus exterior knows better. Taurus is the epitome of the Earth sign, combining practicality with sensuality and ambition with a playful nature. People born under the sign of the Bull aren't afraid to work hard, nor are they shy about sharing the fruit of all that labor. Their tenacious and possessive nature, however, can limit their appeal for some of the flightier, dreamier signs.
Sagittarians run through life with unbridled enthusiasm, generally bumping into things and knocking them over. Anyone who has shared a close relationship with a Sagittarius can tell you tales of bruised feelings and trampled toes. Sometimes it seems that the natural place for the Sagittarian's foot is in his mouth, but you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone who holds it against him for long. Naturally buoyant, exuberant and good-hearted, Sagittarians attract admirers everywhere they go--and while they flirt outrageously with everyone, they trust their hearts to very few.
The Cancer woman is devoted to her home, family and lover, which can sometimes seem smothering, but she simply has a desire to protect. Cancers are known for being sensitive and reluctant to share their feelings. My Daily, a horoscope website, cites that a Cancer's biggest weakness is the fear of repeating past mistakes in his present life. Nurturing and careful, Cancers are picky when it comes to love, but once they find a mate, their loyalty and sexiness shine through.
Pisces, born between Feb. 19 and March 20, are emotional and intuitive, according to Tarot.com. Like those born under other Water signs, Pisceans are drawn to all things mystical and spiritual. Like the fish that symbolizes the Zodiac sign, those born under Pisces immerse themselves in their environment and recognize the deeper connections between people and nature. Their romantic attractions and attachments run deep, and Pisceans often feel as if their relationships were destined to happen.
Capricorns have a reputation for being cool customers--career-driven social climbers without a romantic bone in their bodies. Beneath the practical exterior, though, the right partner will find a heart that's fiercely loyal and smoldering passions waiting to be ignited. Linda Goodman, whose 1994 book "Love Signs: A New Approach to the Human Heart" detailed the romantic possibilities of every conceivable astrological match, describes Capricorn's vision of love as "a quiet and undemanding exchange of personal gratification."
Women born in the last week of February and the first three weeks of March were born under the sign of Pisces, the fish. Pisces women tend to be characterized as imaginative and dreamy souls. If you are a Pisces, you may find that you have been unlucky in love before, perhaps because you were overly sensitive to your partner's remarks or felt rejected by him. As a Pisces, you'll do better in love if you stop letting the little things get to you and start looking for someone whose soul you can relate to.
While it would be nice if relationship endings were easy, cut-and-dried propositions, they rarely are. It is often quite difficult for parties in a loving relationship to end their union and sever their emotional connection. If you find yourself in the unenviable position of receiving a profession of love from someone you consider an ex, you may struggle with how to respond. To ensure that your response is both productive and appropriate, you must carefully consider your future plans as well as your past with the lovelorn ex.
Every time a celebrity couple is touched by infidelity - Pink's hubby tries a different shade, or Ryan Phillippe spoons someone other than Reese - it's like the rumble of distant thunder over our own relationships.
Everywhere you look, you see potential targets for your partner's straying eyes, hands and, heaven forbid, other body parts. There's that co-worker, and the ex, and the spinning instructor with to-die-for quads (and glutes).
Of course, most of us start relationships with complete trust in our partners - pumped on endorphins and often believing they have about as much chance of straying as Rosie has of buying a condo in Trump Tower.
