There are 12 zodiac signs. Each sign has its own strengths and weaknesses, specific traits, desires and attitude towards life and people.

Each of the 12 zodiac signs belongs to one of the four elements – Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements represent a type of energy that acts in each of us.

Astrology aims to help us focus these energies on the positive traits in us and to gain a better understanding of our potential and deal with negative traits each of us possess.

Devotees of Astrology believe that an understanding of the influence of the planets and stars on earthly affairs allows them to both predict and affect the destinies of individuals, groups, and nations.

Most people turn to the Zodiac to discover the positive influences of their given sign. But, studying the dark side of the zodiac signs, like the intimacy issues we have, can make astrology a more useful tool for everyone.

The more we become aware of these issues, the more we can move past them to become the person we were born to be.

Taurus is quick to make a commitment, often not taking the needed time to properly get to know their partner.

You tend to want things to stay the same forever and, when that doesn’t work out, you find yourself in a rut. Be willing to make changes.


Gemini is least comfortable settling down, and you often simply can’t commit. Try investing yourself deeply into your partner. Don’t feel like you have to hide your dark twin.


Cancer refuses to expose its soft underbelly, preferring its hard, crabby shell protect it at all times. Allow yourself to be exposed to your lover’s mercy.  Allow others to nurture you.


Leo has a hard time letting go of control. You want to be in charge at all times. Your greatest barrier to intimacy is not being able to share power in the relationship.

In a relationship, you want to be the strong one. You sometimes come off as stoic and unfeeling. Let your vulnerabilities show from time to time. Let your partner in.


Aquarius naturally prefers logic to feelings, which keeps you feeling self-contained and cold. You fear losing your freedom. Don’t. Let people in.
