We're bombarded every day by magazines and websites advising us how to find our soul mate.But how honest are you being with yourself? Is a small or a huge part of you content beingsingle? Not every sign is delirious1 about being part of a perfectly matched twosome.
Virgo is probably top of the list for self sufficiency2, especially the female of the species. Theycan be phenomenally picky about prospective partners, to a degree where they put off3commitment for years and years. But they have to watch that they don't get too out of touchwith their earthy animal side4 and end up perpetually alone.
Aquarius is next since they are never happy about claustrophobic5 partnerships. Their mottois: “Spread your favors and friendliness around – the more the merrier。” They'll only agree toa match if they're sure there's plenty of space to stay independent.
Capricorn can be a touch like Virgo, defensive, workaholic and not inclined to disappear intoswoons of rapture about a blissful mating. That is until they fall rapidly and inexplicably6 into aromance that astonishes them – and everyone around them!
Pisces? Well they adore the thought of a soul mate, the search, the seduction, the wholedream factory. But when push comes to shove7, they are never sure that what is being offeredmatches up to their “perfect” inner vision. That said, Pisces needs a practical helping handthrough life, so will often settle for their second best just to get along.
Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini are the adventurous signs and do like a good mate to keep themcompany along the way. Given their propensity8 for having a low boredom threshold, theycan “chop and change9” their mates several times in their lifetime – especially the male of thespecies.
Cancer, Taurus and Leo are the security-conscious and home-focused signs. They don't somuch want a soul mate as a someone to help set up house, produce a family and givestability. For Leo this also includes status and an admiring audience.
The two most likely to desperately need another half are Libra and Scorpio, though for not thesame reasons. Libra is known as “the relationship sign”， not because it's driven by matters ofthe heart. It's an Air sign10, fairly detached, and never feels comfortable without another halfto make it feel whole. Scorpio on the other hand is intensely emotional and really needs anequally passionate partner to merge with. Therein lies their bliss.
