There is often a skewed perspective that only people in relationships are happy and people who are single are missing out on life.
But if you take a deeper look at life, you’ll see that how spectacular and amazing your life is — it depends on you, not your relationship status.
Even if you are single, there are different types of single people.
No two people are the same. Some people like solitude and stay single out of their own free will and there are people, who hold out for their Mr. Perfect and stay single, and then there are some who want to focus on career and goals and therefore prefer being single.
According to astrology, here’s an interesting take on the type of single woman you are, based on your zodiac sign:
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
The Jumper Woman
You are a natural leader thanks to your immense energy, vitality, and force. You are independent by nature and temperament. You are active, excitable, impulsive, and optimistic, open to change and new experiences.
Aries, you like the excitement and the chase in a relationship. As long as there is chase and stimulation things are good and you are interested and the moment you come close to the object of your affection, you lose interest.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
The Loyal Woman
You are loyal, patient, stable, and persistent. But you can also be too rigid, stubborn and overly possessive and materialistic at times.
You like to take your time before you fall head over heels in love with someone. You are not interested in casual flings but you look for someone who wants to go the long haul.
Therefore you stay single for long intervals of time instead of dating casually.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
The Social Butterfly
Geminis are kings of contacts and communication. They reach out to people and places everywhere, including the Milky Way and galaxies and spaces. That’s their specialty.
Geminis are also known as social butterflies. They like to meet new people and explore new places. You would like to date a lot of people, have a lot of great conversation and go around the world rather than settle down with one person.
You look for a partner who is equally outgoing and patient enough to keep up with your social life.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
The Family-Oriented Woman
Cancers are intuitive and psychic. You are also emotionally sensitive, tenacious and nurturing. You are very emotional and sensitive and look for a partner with whom you can connect on all levels: physical, emotional and mental.
You are very giving, caring, expressive and nurturing and you look for someone who is worthy of that kind of genuine love and therefore you hold out till you find your right match.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
The Bossy Woman
Leo, you have leadership ability, high self-esteem and confidence, generosity, and creativity. But you can also be arrogant, vain and bossy at times.
You like to be in the limelight wherever you go and you like to live your life to the fullest.
You know how to live it up and be happy on your own. You wouldn’t mind being in a relationship with someone but you will not put your life on hold to look for someone.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The Seeker Woman
Virgo, you are reserved, modest, practical, discriminating, industrious, and analytical and seek to know and understand yourself and the world. You have mental agility, analytical skills, ability to pay attention to detail and have a problem-solving attitude.
Virgo, you know what you want and you are also very methodical about how to go about your goals. You would put yourself out there on all the dating apps and date extensively to look for the right partner.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
The Balanced Woman
Libra, you are diplomatic and have a sense of balance.
You would love to be in a relationship but you do not lose your balance if you are not.
You would go out and meet people and explore your options but you would not get too involved or attached to someone till you know they are worth it.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
The Intense Woman
Scorpio, you are the most intense and passionate of all signs.
When you fall for someone, you fall hard and you find it very difficult to let go of people you love. If someone betrays you, you can’t let go of that hurt easily also. You tend to become overly possessive and obsessive.
You like very passionate and intense lovemaking but you are not into short-term or casual relationships.
In fact, you can come off as so passionate and intense even in the early stages of a relationship that you can scare off a potential mate.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
The Cheeky Woman
Sagittarians are ambitious, driven, generous, focused, freedom loving, seekers of the challenge, open to new ideas, innovation and exploration.
You enjoy your singlehood to the hilt. You like your freedom and you don’t want to be with someone who is too possessive or controlling.
You want someone who is equally wild and free and wants to explore the world with you.
You are in no hurry to settle down till you find your right match because you know how to enjoy your own company and slay your goals.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
The Logical Woman
Capricorn, you are level-headed, rational, independent and born leaders. You like the world to have a perfect order.
You value stability and security and you know how to find things for yourself. You would love to have a partner who can work alongside you to create a stable and secure foundation for the future but you are self-reliant in case you don’t find anyone.
You are open to exploring your options to find someone compatible but you are practical enough to not put your life on hold for finding someone.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The Fiercely Independent Woman
Aquarius, you are fiercely independent and you value your freedom.
You have a strong sense of purpose and you look for a partner who is equally driven and who would not get intimidated by your success.
You are focused to achieve your goals and you know how to enjoy your own company. Although you are open to a relationship if you find someone great organically, looking for a partner is not really on your list of priorities.
You are doing incredibly well on your own and you know that you are a great catch.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The Romantic Woman
Pisces, you are a hardcore believer in love and romance. You are waiting for someone who can sweep you off your feet. You are also too polite to say no to anyone and you end up dating a lot of people before you find your Mr. Perfect.
All the heartbreaks and experiences from your romantic encounters make way for your artistic leanings anyways so you don’t hold yourself back from falling head over heels and you usually wear your heart on your sleeves.
