Your Zodiac sign says a whole lot about your strengths and weaknesses. Understanding what you’re inherently good and bad at can go a long towards improving your relationship.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

It’s cool that you can roll with any crowd, but it’s not cool if you don’t know how to be yourself in your relationship.

Being adaptable is a good characteristic, being deceptive and evasive is not. You should learn the difference.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

Building a history of shared experiences is the foundation of a strong relationship. It’s hard for people to feel like they’re doing new things when their partner (that’s you) doesn’t want to leave the house.

Be brave and step out of your shell.

Remember that embracing intimacy isn’t a sign of weakness at all.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

Sometimes when you ask questions to gain information from your partner, it can feel more like an inquisition than a conversation.

That can make them less willing to reveal private details to you, which can lead to a relationship down-spiral. Plus, be sure to make a conscious effort on being a better partner.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

Don’t let your quest for justice mean that you get taken advantage of by your partner.

Seeking balance is at the heart of who you are: don’t be so modest that you refuse to take credit for your role in successes and recognize that failures and hard times probably aren’t all your fault.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

While there’s the saying “Loose lips sink ships,” that only applies to war and criminal enterprises. When it comes to you and your partner, it’s more like “Tight lips sink relationships.”

Sharing your emotions with your partner will strengthen your relationship.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

When was the last time you really paid attention to your partner and didn’t just treat them like a side project?

You have to make an affirmative decision that your relationship is something that you want to make successful, not just one more thing that you’re trying to do.

Capricorn (December 22–January 20)

You may be great at solving other people’s problems, but you have to open up to letting someone else help you with your own drama.

Try out this experiment: tell your partner how you’re feeling and ask them if there’s anything that the two of you can do together that they think might make you feel better.

Aquarius (January 21–February 18)

Going with the flow is a fundamental part of your nature, but you’re going to have to get off of your tush if you want your relationship to last.

Instead of relying exclusively on your partner to make the hard decisions, get involved in building your relationship. Try doing an art project or something creative together.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

You’ve got to take care of yourself to maintain a healthy relationship.

Don’t let your partner take advantage of your generosity, let them know what you need to be happy.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

You’ve got to recognize that when you change your mind to pursue your hairbrained ideas and insist on dragging your partner along with you on that journey, it can really take a toll on your relationship.

Recognize your rambunctious ways and take the time to understand that some people want stability in their life.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

If you’re not willing to give a little ground now and then, it doesn’t matter how patient a listener you are.

Lean into your generous side and try not to be so stubborn—even though it’s the core of your being.
