Let's face it. Finding a partner isn't always easy. Finding a partner who makes you truly happy, is even harder. But there is someone for every person and your moon sign can perhaps narrow down the search for the significant other who will bring true joy to your life.
You're a fiercely independent woman with a zest for life. Some might call your spontaneity "impulsive" but they forget to see the side of you that is extremely dedicated to your relationships and passions. Not to mention, you are emotionally independent and are not afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve. So when it comes to your partner, you want someone who is just as independent both emotionally and physically and who is more than happy to be honest with you. You want someone who can keep up with your fast-paced life and accept you as you are.
You are the sensual sign that likes to take it slow, whether it's in getting to know someone or even in processing your own complex emotions. You need time to make your decisions and work out all the kinks in your life. Being rushed only annoys you. And it is this slow burn that helps you attain inner stability. With a partner, you want him to be able to match your slow pace. You want a partner who won't just react to every situation but who will take the time to analyze it before coming to a decision - like you. And you want him to be able to meet you eye-for-eye when it comes to your sensual needs.
You love the chase of learning. You enjoy observing the world around you, adapting to situations quickly and charming your way into anything. Your wit and humor make you the center of attention and you can't say you don't like it. But what truly matters to you is being intellectually stimulated. You want a partner who shares the same or similar sense of humor and who is ready to indulge in your need for deep and meaningful conversations. You want to be able to learn new things from him while exchanging your knowledge with his equally open mindset.
Emotions for you are something to be honored and treated with respect. It's part of why you're the nurturing and tender one amongst your loved ones. However, you like to spend time on your own, just gathering your energy and finding peace yet at times when you are overwhelmed, you need a lot of comforting. With your partner, you need someone who understands this kaleidoscopic quality of yours and allows himself to not only be taken care of but to be the cozy spot to cuddle in when there is just too much going on inside you as well as outside.
A leader is what you are but more than that, you are also an inspiration to others. Your energy feeds others and gives them the passion to follow their own paths. But being confident as a leader doesn't mean you don't have your moments of insecurity. Which is why you want a partner who can handle your dominant personality but also be ready to make you feel loved... really loved. You also need him to be open to supporting you in your endeavors without feeling like he's being left behind. And it wouldn't hurt if he is the playful kind in a way that matches your light-heartedness.
You can be the most organized person but when it comes to your emotions, you're not the best at dealing with it. Those complex feelings mess with your innate need to sort and control your environment, even when you are the person everyone comes to for advice because they know you're good for it. Which is why you look for a partner who is already quite sorted emotionally and mentally so that you don't have to sit and organize his life for him. And the deal-breaker is when he values and accepts the knowledge and the beliefs that you bring to the table.
You're a charming diplomat always willing to see and hear all sides to a story before forming an opinion. After all, your zodiac is represented by the scales of justice. And it is this desire to fix issues that make others give you the title of peacemaker. But you aren't always following your head because you know how to follow your heart when it's called for. It's for this reason you look for a partner who is open to you discussing problems with them and helping you work on your relationship. You also want him to challenge you both intellectually and emotionally without pushing the boundaries that you both set.
You are a well of deep emotions and sexual appetite - neither can be compromised on. You not only have a passion for knowledge but deep carnal hunger that makes you a complete package. You do your best to understand others and make them feel safe and secure but the way you do it may seem too intense. And that intense personality isn't for everyone. You want a partner who can not only keep up in the bedroom but who isn't afraid to actually speak up about his emotions. He should also be the type who craves new experiences and isn't scared off by your potent personality.
Finding joie de vivre in any situation is your strong suit. You love exploring the world, meeting new people, learning interesting stories about their lives. Clubbed with your independence, your bubbly nature draws people to you. When it comes to a partner, you look for someone who doesn't feed off your happiness but rather has a joy of his own within him. You have a need to be trusted by him because you know your strong moral compass is near impossible to sway. He should be ready to soar with you instead of pinning you down and more importantly, be willing to introduce you to new things.
You project a mask to the world that makes others call you "cold" or "unfeeling." But those people are unaware of the fire that lies within you. It's just that you chose to create a strong defense around your vulnerabilities and that's why it takes you time to open up to others. Which is why trust is crucial for you, especially in a partner. You need to know that he won't use your insecurities against you or judge you for who you are. But the moment you feel safe with him, he'll know that he's hit the jackpot. You also value consistency in a partner because you have to know that he can be counted on.
Fearless is your middle name as you fight to keep your identity intact. You don't care about what anyone thinks of you and are the type of person who will call out others' nonsense when it's necessary. Your large energy needs to be matched by a partner who can not only keep up with you but also be open-minded and considerate about who you are. You need your space and your partner needs to understand that having time to yourself doesn't mean you love him any less. He also needs to be okay with the boundaries you set as they are what gives you stability in your life.
Of all the zodiacs, you feel the most deeply and are the most in tune with your surroundings. Being an empath, you feel like it's your responsibility to ease the burdens of the people around you. But it can be very draining which is why you need a partner who can comfort you when you are overwhelmed by the sensory overload and who can shower you with tenderness. It also helps if he is big on romantic gestures because you are also one of the most romantic signs. Flowers, walks on the beach, romantic dinners - all of these go a long way in building a stronger bond with your partner.
