When a relationship is new, exciting, and fresh it might feel like you could never feel bored of your partner.
Rewind a few months or years, however, and you might feel like your once-scorching romance is now different.
You may also be wondering how this came about. If you’re not sure, take a look at your astrology.
The reason every zodiac sign gets bored in a relationship is a little different
So your zodiac sign could provide an insight into why you are no longer satisfied or enthusiastic in your love life.
It’s important to point out that there is a difference between boredom and well-being in a relationship.
When you are comfortable, it means that you will feel safe with your partner that you are completely yourself, and vice versa. In a pleasant relationship there is a sense of contentment and security.
However, when you are bored, it means that you feel like you are stuck in a relationship that no longer works for you and that you want something (or someone) that is different from what you have now.
If that applies to you, here is why your zodiac sign might make you feel this way.
Aries tend to get bored in relationships because they tend to get into a relationship very quickly.
Ruled by Mars, the planet associated with passion and aggression, he lives for the pursuit of romance.
If someone catches their eye, the Aries is instantly hooked and sometimes forgets to make sure they really go together before making it official.
However, when the allure of conquest and novelty wears off, Aries can quickly get bored if their partner doesn’t share their sense of spontaneity and adventure.
When Taurus are in a relationship, they do their best. They love to cuddle with the person they love and live their best life.
Since they’re more of the family people and comfortable in a relationship, they are slow to get bored with their partner, but it can still happen for one of two reasons: either Taurus doesn’t feel appreciated for everything they do, or his partner is unreliable.
Taurus are very safety minded, and a partner who doesn’t do what they’re told is a great rebuff for them.
Gemini are an air sign fueled by their innate curiosity.
They are very prone to get bored in their relationships; this is also the reason why many twins’ relationships end.
It takes a lot to grab and hold a Gemini’s attention.
They need a partner who challenges them intellectually and offers them surprises and new, unexplored abysses.
Otherwise, Gemini could become complacent and start looking for something else that will pique their curiosity.
Cancers do not give up easily in their relationships. It may take a little while for this cautious sign to fully open its heart, but when it does, Cancer will give everything and will do everything to make the relationship work.
However, it is possible that even this very dedicated character could be bored in a relationship and the reason for this is suspicion.
Cancer is a very emotional sign, so it is important to be able to trust someone with their vulnerable heart.
When they can’t trust their partner, their desire to keep trying will slowly wane, causing them to become bored in their relationship.
The Leo lives on the love and admiration of his partner. He needs frequent approval and needs to know without a doubt that his partner admires and cares for him.
If they’re not getting that type of attention, Leo wonders why they’re in this relationship in the first place.
Leo has big hearts and takes commitments seriously, but they also have the confidence to move on when they don’t get what they need.
Virgo has a reputation for being very critical, but that comes from the belief that people should strive to be the best version of themselves.
While Virgos don’t expect their partner to be perfect, they need to see him make an effort.
Giving up or remaining static is a major obstacle for the Virgo that leaves them disappointed, dissatisfied, and downright bored in the relationship.
Libra represents Libra because for them it is about balance and harmony. They love peace and abhor conflict.
You want a partner who is balanced, relaxed and approaches life with the same unexcited enthusiasm as you do.
If you find yourself in a relationship with a lot of drama and conflict, you get tired of it very quickly and look for the next exit.
Unlike Libra, Scorpio needs drama and dynamism in their relationship to keep things interesting.
This watermark is very sensitive to its emotions, so heightened states of them just feel right.
If they don’t have a partner who gets involved with them at this level or is too relaxed, Scorpio could interpret that as a lack of interest or commitment and be frustrated and bored.
He might even look around for a new partner who could bring some drama and intimacy back into his life.
Sagittarius is the free spirit of the zodiac who is driven by the desire to experience and learn new things.
They want to broaden their perspective on the world and are in a constant process of learning and growing.
Therefore, they tend not to settle down for as long as possible. They’re afraid of being stuck in a relationship that is preventing them from moving forward, and when that happens it’s like their worst fear comes true.
Capricorns take great pride in their ambition. You want to be successful and you are passionate about working.
They want a partner to support them in their endeavors, but they also need him to make their own dreams and passionate projects come true.
Lack of ambition and attachment are two traits that can cause Capricorns to lose respect for their partner, which can quickly lead to boredom and disappointment in the relationship.
Aquarius may not be the emotional zodiac sign in their relationships, but they crave an intellectually stimulating relationship that will lead to emotional bonds over time.
They want a partner who challenges them on an intellectual level, who can engage in a conversation, and who thinks about things on a deep level.
No matter how physically attracted the Aquarius to someone, if they cannot connect with their partner on a deeper level, they will get bored of the superficiality very quickly.
Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac. They want magic and romance in their relationships, so at times they can try to force relationships to live up to their ideal, whether they actually can or not.
Pisces can hold out for a while, but at some point reality gets in the way, and when there is no more magic, spark, or romance, they will start looking for someone to stimulate their imaginations again.
Being bored in a relationship is not uncommon and does not automatically mean the end of the relationship.
Even so, it is a clear sign that it is time to do something to see if the two of you can make the changes necessary to save the relationship.
Or it could be a sign that your relationship just doesn’t suit you anymore.
It’s up to you whether you want to fight for the relationship or move on. The most important thing is to do what feels right to you and trust your instincts.
