While everyone has that one thing they can’t live without in a relationship, it’s possible to get extra specific when you take your zodiac sign into account. There may be a certain trait you’re looking for in a partner, or quality that needs to be present in the relationship. And without those things, it just doesn’t feel right.
Of course, many different factors will be at play when it comes to what you’re looking for in a partner, and what you need in a relationship. And yet, “for each sign there is a type of wiring, something that makes them who they are,” Dr. Elisa Robyn, PhD, an astrologer and astrology transitions consultant, tells Bustle. This may be help explain why you simply need to be with someone who listens, or jokes around, or in a situation that feels truly comfortable.
If Aries needs anything in a relationship, it’s to be thrilled and excited — more often than not. This is due to the fact they’re ruled by the fiery planet Mars, Narayana Montufar, senior astrologer at Astrology.com and Horoscope.com, tells Bustle, and thus are always chasing after the next new thing.
They need to be with a partner who is just as energetic and excited about life as they are; someone who can keep up and match their intensity. And if they both work together to keep the relationship fun — usually by seeking out new experiences — it can last for a long time.
“Taurus natives can’t live without genuine and earthy sensuality,” Montufar says. “Ruled by goddess Venus, this is the sign with the strongest connection to the physical body and its senses,” which is one reason why Taurus loves to create a comfy home base, where they can be surrounded by all their favorite things.
While they want to experience what life has to offer, they also need to be in a relationship that feels safe. This means building up a sense of security, and looking for a partner who’s in it for the long haul, Montufar says.
