When a relationship is new, exciting, and fresh, it might feel like you can never get bored of your partner.
However, rewind a few months or years and you might feel like your once red-hot romance looks different now.
You may also be wondering how this came about. If you’re not sure, take a look at your astrology.
The reason each zodiac sign gets bored in a relationship is a little different
So your zodiac sign could provide some insight as to why you are no longer satisfied or excited in your love life.
It’s important to point out that there’s a difference between boredom and well-being in a relationship.
When you feel comfortable, it means you feel safe with your partner to be yourself, and vice versa. In a comfortable relationship there is a sense of contentment and security.
However, when you’re bored, it means you feel stuck in a relationship that’s no longer working for you and you want something (or someone) different than what you have now.
If that applies to you, here’s why your zodiac sign might make you feel this way.
Aries tend to get bored in relationships because they tend to rush 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 will be hooked and sometimes forget to make sure they really are a match before making it official.
However, when the allure of conquest and novelty wears off, Aries can easily become 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.
Being more of a family person 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 feels unappreciated for everything they do, or his partner is unreliable.
Taurus are very security oriented, and a partner who doesn’t do what they say is a big turn off for them.
Gemini is an air sign driven by innate curiosity.
They are very prone to getting bored in their relationships; this is also the reason why many Gemini relationships end.
It takes a lot to get and keep a Gemini’s attention.
They need a partner who will challenge them intellectually and offer them surprises and new, unexplored abysses.
Otherwise, Gemini might get complacent and start looking for something else that piques their curiosity.
Cancers don’t give up easily in their relationships. It may take a while for this cautious sign to fully open their hearts, but when they do, Cancer will do anything and do anything to make the relationship work.
However, it is possible that even this very committed sign will get bored in a relationship, and the reason for this is distrust.
Cancer is a very emotional sign, so it’s important for them to be able to confide their vulnerable heart to someone.
If they cannot trust their partner, their desire to keep trying will slowly dwindle, causing them to become bored in their relationship.
Leo thrives on the love and admiration of their partner. He needs frequent reassurance and without a doubt he needs to know that his partner admires and cares about him.
If they don’t get that kind of attention, Leo wonders why they are in this relationship in the first place.
Leos have big hearts and take 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 do need to see that they’re trying.
Giving up or remaining static is a major obstacle for Virgo that makes them disappointed, dissatisfied and downright bored in the relationship.
Libra represents Libra because for them it is all about balance and harmony. They love peace and abhor conflict.
They want a partner who is balanced, relaxed, and approaches life with the same unexcited enthusiasm as they do.
When they find themselves in a relationship with a lot of drama and conflict, they get tired of it very quickly and start looking for the next exit.
Unlike Libra, Scorpio needs drama and dynamism in their relationship to keep things interesting.
This water sign is very sensitive to their emotions, so heightened states of theirs just feel right.
If they don’t have a partner who engages with them on this level or is too relaxed, the Scorpio could interpret that as a lack of interest or commitment and feel frustrated and bored.
He might even be looking for a new partner to bring some drama and intimacy back into his life.
Sagittarius is the free spirit of the zodiac, driven by a desire to experience and learn new things.
They want to broaden their perspective of 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 fear being stuck in a relationship that prevents them from moving forward, and when that happens, it’s like their worst fear comes true.
Capricorns are very proud of their ambition. They want to be successful and are passionate about their work.
While they want a partner to support them in their endeavors, they also need one to help them achieve their own dreams and passionate projects.
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.
Aquarians may not be the most 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 will challenge them on an intellectual level, who can engage in conversation, and who will think about things on a deep level.
No matter how much Aquarius is physically attracted to someone, if they can’t connect with their partner on a deeper level, they’ll get bored of superficiality very quickly.
Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac. They desire magic and romance in their relationships, so they can sometimes try to force relationships to fit their ideal, whether they actually can or not.
Pisces can hold out for a while, but eventually reality gets in the way, and when there’s no more magic, spark, or romance, they’ll look for someone to rekindle their imaginations.
Being bored in a relationship is not uncommon and does not automatically mean the end of the relationship.
Still, it’s a clear sign that it’s time to do something to see if you can both make the changes needed to salvage the relationship.
But it could also be a sign that your relationship just isn’t right for 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.
