You have no problem confessing your feelings when it comes to something like that, Aries. You are sure what you feel and you go all the way with it. What happens is that you are very afraid of feeling rejected by the other person. In the past, you used to express your feelings without thinking about the other person’s. You released yours and that’s it.
Over time, you have realized that not everyone feels the same as you and that has hurt you a lot. Now, you are afraid to take the first step because you are not willing to listen and this person does not feel the same as you. Even if you are sure of what your feelings are, you prefer to wait a little longer to see what the other person is feeling. You can’t risk asking the other person out and telling you no…
You are known for your lack of initiative, Taurus. You are very afraid of taking the initiative in anything. Not only in your relationships but also in your day to day. When you like someone, something inside you freaks out just thinking about asking them out. It is something that happens more often than you would like. It is difficult for you to trust the other person but also yourself.
Before that, you need to make sure what your feelings are. The simple idea that the other person can tell you no already traumatizes you, Taurus.

You can be very sociable, Gemini, but when your feelings are involved, things change. You have no problem meeting face to face to talk to that person, asking them out, and making plans “as friends”.

It is difficult for you to clarify if what you feel is real or just a whim of the moment.
For you, Gemini, it is a great challenge to be sure of what you feel and that it lasts over time. You are a very changeable person, and so are you with your feelings.

When it comes to love, Cancer, you are quite a shy person. You are terribly afraid of rejection in these kinds of situations.

You are very overwhelmed by your own insecurities, even your past experiences. Between the fact that you are afraid of rejection and that you have already suffered a lot for love, you never end up throwing yourself. You can’t deal with yet another rejection, Cancer.
