If you are single, you likely feel one of two ways: you are either happy with your relationship status or you feel the need to be with someone.
Did you know that astrology may influence the way you feel about love and relationships?
Some single signs prefer staying that way because they love their freedom, while other zodiac signs feel more complete when in a relationship.
I wanna drive a little deeper into this idea of being happy and alone or needing to be in a relationship.
It’s more of an inner issue than an outer. You’re not a hopeless romantic if you need to be in a relationship, you’re just not happy alone and that can be an issue.
But also being too happy alone and not allowing love into your life is also an issue.
So which one are you, according to astrology?
Happy single zodiac signs vs. the signs who always need to be in a relationship:
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios love being with someone they can see some of themselves in, but if that’s not the case, they would rather be alone. A Scorpio loves to dive into their own mind especially when they like someone. They like to try and figure their significant other out.
A Scorpio will want to figure out what they have to offer in their relationship to be the best partner. But, if a Scorpio feels like their privacy is invaded or that there’s any fakeness to the relationship, a Scorpio has no problem being a great partner to themselves.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos love being single because they love their alone time! They also enjoy working and can be considered workaholics because they are so responsible and organized.
Although Virgos enjoy a social gathering here and there, at the end of the day, they want their me-time. Virgos are sometimes uncomfortable being at social gatherings where they don’t know everyone.
You could just imagine how hard it is for them to find a partner when they don’t really want to date or be the one to initiate socializing.
Virgos are kind of the loners in the zodiac world because when it doesn’t come to finding potential partners, they have super high standards. They’d rather just stay single than be disappointed.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancers zodiac signs love being single as much as they enjoy a partnership. Cancer zodiac signs are seen as mothering, so they love hosting social events and catering to others.
But sometimes they retreat into their shell and like being home alone whenever they can. This is a sign who loves a relaxing day on the couch and it sounds a lot more appetizing to them than a night out in the city.
They are also very sensitive, so although they can be good when in a relationship, they get hurt easily. Cancer signs need you to understand their feelings. They need someone who can always be there for them.
It often makes them more cautious about who they are with. This can make a Cancer prefer being single and not become fully involved with a partner, so they don’t get hurt.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces love to be in a relationship, but out of self-defense, many are happier when single. Pisces are very emotional beings, as well as creative and imaginative astrology signs. (I’m a Pisces, so I can admit that we are a lazy sign.)
I’d rather stay home sometimes than go to a party. I don’t mind even running to the store if it means not having to dress cute. I’m sure any Pisces can agree. Being lazy, doesn’t mean we don’t have our glam days.
Since Pisces are homebodies, they can go a good while being alone, but are also hopeless romantics and do crave attention sometimes. After we’ve received quite a bit of it, we can go a while without it, so we’re pretty happy alone.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
So you’re gonna see this sign twice in this article because Capricorns are melancholy, sometimes they can just want to be by themselves.
Although sometimes they are overjoyed and want that social interaction for a good amount of time, whether it be a week or a couple of days.
But they can also go a couple of days to an entire week alone probably lost in their own little work world getting things done!
Sagittarius (November 26-December 21)
Sagittarius tends to be sort of a lone wolf. They even know if they like someone when they meet them. So in the sense of a relationship, they can be dedicated, but also are a very adventurous sign.
If they’re with you and love you, they’ll probably hope for you to come along on their adventure. If you didn’t, it would really depend on their feelings for you, because of their independent spirit.
Sagittarius is a zodiac sign that if they wanted to move to a new state and you didn’t, they’d probably do it anyway.
Aries (March 20-April 21)
Aries can become lonely for long periods of time, even though it doesn’t last very long, especially when they are one of the most attractive zodiac signs out there.
Although Aries tends to fall in love quickly, they also fall out of love even quicker. For this reason, they’re better alone. They switch up so much and have so much drive for what they want to do until they are ready to settle down long term.
Their best bet is to focus on themselves until they meet the right person. Aries are happiest when single— until they find the One.
Happy Coupled-Up Signs
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The fact that Gemini is one of the most social signs ever, point-blank, would make you realize that if they’re alone, they’re pretty lonely. So just imagine them being single!
I’m sure at the end of the day they can still find some sort of joy by being surrounded by tons of friends, but imagine how much attention a partner could give them that a friend can’t.
Gemini can feel lonely pretty easily— being in a relationship means you have someone on call.
I mean, even being married means you have someone to talk to all day if you wanted to. With Gemini being a versatile conversationalist, they can literally talk about anything, the topics are endless.
This sign can be single, but it may not be their happiest choice. If they have lots of friends or date often, they can handle being alone and feel just fine.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo loves to be with someone. Why? They need attention, I’m sure we’ve all heard this, and they love compliments.
So are they gonna receive that giving themselves compliments in a mirror? No, they’re gonna want that outside energy to help them shine like the Sun almost.
They crave this sort of validation of being in the spotlight. Overall, Leo tends to have a big circle of friends and having a partner especially someone who chose to be with them off not only their looks but also their personality, etc.
They don’t like to be single because when in a relationship they can have an abundance of compliments.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras love people. Although they can enjoy their alone time, a Libra alone for too long can become depressed very easily.
Especially when a Libra is single they tend to love social gatherings and making an abundance of friends or they like to find potential people to date since they are pretty flirtatious.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Any Capricorn I’ve met that’s either single or not hanging out with friends as much is almost kind of lonely.
Capricorns are social, their hard workers of course, but they often enjoy making social connections with people who could help them with their career or etc.
They tend to be a part of social gatherings when it involves networking or even spending time with close friends or family.
Now I think you can see how important it would be for a Capricorn to be in a relationship. Imagine them having a partner who could be there for them and support them on their journey especially if they have a similar career.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius love being in a relationship. Aquarius is a smart sign that has lots of knowledge and ideas to share, so who better to share them with than their partner.
They do enjoy some alone time as does every sign. But they really enjoy being a part of social gatherings like volunteer work or something more like a relationship where they can better the person therewith.
However, Aquarius is also one of the zodiac signs who are most secure with themselves, and sometimes that can be seen as intimidating making Aquarius the sign that is almost always single regardless of how much they love being in a relationship.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
Taurus needs others. They would feel better in a relationship mainly because they become so consumed with loneliness.
Sure there are goal-oriented and motivated to succeed but when they’re with someone they feel like they not only have someone to listen to them but also someone that can be with them more than a friend can.
