Whether you're a die-hard astrology fan or just casually check your horoscope for some free entertainment, most of us know there's a lot to be said in the stars. One of the most commonly researched areas when it comes to astrology is relationships—is anyone else guilty of Google searching compatibility charts as soon as they find out their new boo's sign? I know I'm guilty, and I will willingly admit I let the stars play a huge role in my love life.

Unfortunately, not everything written in the stars is great. There can be a major dark side. No sign is perfect, in fact, we all have some pretty toxic traits. Here are the most toxic trait each sign holds in a relationship.

1. Aries - No patience.

Relationships require patience. You need to be willing to wait on your partner, whether it's for them to show up to a date or to alter their mindset on a topic. However, Aries are known for having little to no patience. They'll get upset if you're late to dinner and don't have the understanding in their personality to wait on you to come around, which may ultimately be their fault.

2. Taurus - Their stubbornness.

Ah, one of the most cliche of all zodiac stereotypes—the Taurus and their stubbornness. However, it's true! Taurus are very my way or no way type of people, which is bound to cause some conflict in their relationships. Once a Taurus gets their mind set on something, there's no way to get them to budge.

3. Gemini - Their anxiety.

Geminis have twin personalities, and balancing that can leave them an anxious mess. They overthink and get easily overwhelmed, which may quickly lead to trouble in paradise. Loving a Gemini means understanding their overthinking, overreacting, and all of the bad days.

4. Cancer - Their extreme mood swings.

One minute, a Cancer can be completely on cloud nine and as happy as can be and the next they could be yelling in your face. It's rough. Dealing with this happy one moment, upset the next personality can be a struggle. Cancers feel everything very intensely, which can be a good thing in many different elements, however, loving an overly emotional partner who swings like crazy can quickly cause problems.

5. Leo - How dramatic they are.

Ah, Leo. The ultimate drama queen. All of a Leo's emotions are very intensified, which means the highs and lows of a relationship can never be just that. They're much more intense. This can be a good thing (kind of...) when a Leo is in love, but it can also quickly turn very toxic when they're so immersed in the relationship they can't breathe.

6. Virgo - Their need to be in control.

If you like a balance between control in a relationship, don't date a Virgo. They like to pull all the ropes and keep the power, which can leave their partners feeling very powerless.

7. Libra - Manipulation.

Libras can be quite the charmer, and they know exactly how to use that charm to get exactly what you want. Ever have that old fling that seems to always convince you to come over even when you don't want to? Check their birth chart, because they're probably a Libra. Libras know exactly how to use their sweet words to get you on their side.

8. Scorpio - Jealousy.

Scorpio experiences love very deeply, much more deeply than many of the other signs. However, that means they're also experiencing the dark side of love deeply as well. If you're dating a Scorpio, you best believe any opposite-sex friend of yours will have them feeling highly jealous, and we all know how damaging jealousy can be to a relationship.

9. Sagittarius - Their immaturity.

If you can't be with someone who doesn't know how to grow up, don't date a Sagittarius. They're very goofy and young-minded, meaning they typically approach relationships in an immature way. Good luck with that one.

10. Capricorn - Being conceited.

High maintenance is an understatement when it comes to a Capricorn. They have very high standards. Capricorns always think that they are right and can be quite the conceited sign. Being enough for a Capricorn can be a struggle in itself, and staying enough can also be quite the challenge.

11. Aquarius - Selfishness.

Aquarius are known for being very selfish people. They think of themselves first in nearly every situation. An Aquarius partner needs to take the lead and be able to think of themselves and their own problems before the relationship's problems, and if they don't have the freedom to do this, there may quickly be trouble brewing.

12. Pisces - Their tendency to lie.

Pisces have a difficult time telling the difference between a fantasy they've created and reality. More often than not, Pisces are known as the "pathological liar" sign. Pisces can typically come up with some pretty good stories, so these lies won't even be little. They'll be full-blown fantasies. Good luck knowing the truth if you are with a Pisces.

An Open Letter To The Girl In A Toxic Relationship Who Doesn't See The Signs To Let Go

"it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing" -R.H Sin

Dear you,

I hope you're doing well. I once thought I was too. I once thought that if he would just change, for me, everything would work. However, my sweet girl, you should not have to change people, you should not have to push people to be better, for you. You cannot help anyone, that does not want to help themselves.

In the movies, we learn to love a bad boy that needs changing. However, it isn't always your job to be boys saving grace. However, his shaming and emotional abuse is not just something you should put up with so that you can love him. That is not loving.

Love is not a constant competition of who could belittle the other one first. Love is not asking for a hug and being told no. Love does not make you feel stupid for bringing up things that hurt your feelings.

Love does not grow angry because you talk to your mom about your feelings. Love does not body shame. Love does not constantly change the passcode to their phone.

Love does not laugh when you find out they're unfaithful. Love does not tell you that you are not smart enough to accomplish anything. Love does not force their hand up your thigh when the words "no" slip out of your mouth.

Love is the warmth of a hand on your cheek when you get anxious. Love is getting your backpack out the car for you. Love is turning around when you need them. Love compromises.

Love is encouraging. Love is proud. Love is forgiving. Love sees you for who you are. Love knows you are worthy.

God is your Father and you are His daughter, so do not believe for one second that this abuse is the love you think you deserve.

Love will not always be easy. Love will be challenging and a constant prayer to not anger so quickly.

However, do not mix up challenging with the abuse. If you are losing the good pieces of yourself, then it isn't love. I know that you put a lot of time and effort into this relationship, but it is no good, you are holding on to someone whose heart is not in the right place to love you.

I connected with a poem from R. H. Sin, once I left my toxic relationship which reads, "it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing."

Darling girl, you are so loved by so many people, do not let this relationship hold you back or make you feel less worthy than you are. I have always been the girl with her nose stuck up in the air smelling for smoke, to follow the trail to a burning house to find a boy that needed saving, but it is more than likely a boy that lit the fire in the first place and needs changing.

So, do not be me, be better. Be the girl that lights her own world on fire, for her work, for her family, for God. You are you and you are amazing, so do not fear being without him.

You will feel as if you have come up for air after drowning in an ocean that you had no idea you were swimming in.

The emotional abuse that this boy has put you through and maybe even physical abuse will leave you building walls around your heart. It will make other relationships hard, but you are so so strong.

You will meet someone that makes you so happy and feel so easy to love, you will never understand how you stuck around with the one that hurt you for so long.

You deserve to grow from this, and I promise you will.

Let go.

xoxo,

Being Far Away From My Boyfriend Actually Strengthened Our Relationship Instead Of Forcing It Apart

While we were apart, we became closer.

Before I really start this article, I just want to say that my relationship isn't truly a long distance relationship. We are both college students at the same university eight months out of the year, but the other four months we live quite a distance apart. Even during those four months, we are only about 150 miles from each other as the bird flies, but really about three hours from each other.

Being in a relationship where I'm not able to see my boyfriend every day or even every week has been a real challenge. But it's been a good challenge. It hasn't been a challenge because I've felt unfaithful or fallen out of love with him in any way. It's challenging because I miss him. We both work jobs and our schedules aren't the same and oftentimes we aren't able to talk to each other unless it's early in the morning or late at night. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and tell him about how my day went and get a big bear hug from him. Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do this.

I firmly believe that being apart from each other for days, weeks, or even months have brought us closer than we could've ever imagined. We knew that this would be difficult, and we knew that there would be bad days, but we decided to power through it. It has made each time that we are able to see each other so much more special and meaningful.

Seeing each other has become more of spending time with each other than just laying around on the couch playing around on our phones. It's become really getting to know each other better and catching up on all the things we had missed. It's become a time for us to simply be in each other's presence and enjoy being able to talk face to face without a phone in the middle of us. We go on more adventurous dates, we take more pictures, and I think we would both easily say that we fall more and more in love with each other after each opportunity we have to spend time together.

Spending time together is no longer a daily activity, but it has become a right to be earned through hard work and several paychecks as travel can become expensive. We no longer take opportunities to see each other for granted, and it has made us grow closer because we aren't able to spend time together often. We look forward to the days when we won't have to worry about being apart but know that this is only a stepping stone in our relationship.
