“Whoever makes you feel that deeply and that intensely, deserves to know how they’ve impacted you.”
― Alison G. Bailey, Present Perfect
They say a love that reaches the point of obsession, turns into a prayer. But at times, this love is the obsession of one and only one.
You can’t stop thinking about that person, someone’s constantly camping inside your head, you feel as if you’re slowly floating down a broad river into an open sea, you’re drunk on dopamine. There’s an untamed ocean running inside of you, waiting to burst open. You plan verses and verses of the things you’re going to say, but somehow you don’t.
Does this sound like your case? If yes, then you’re at the right spot.
Often, the things we do or the beliefs we embrace are channelled by our stars. Understanding these stars helps us better understand ourselves and why we do what we do. Once we reach the top-most ladder of self-comprehension, we can master all our actions and trick the mind & heart to come in sync.
Here’s why you have a hard time confessing your love to someone or voicing those three magical words, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’re a go-getter and a charmer of sorts, there’s a certain suaveness and smoothness in the way you glide towards the things you want, be it a job, your favourite car or a person. However, once you’ve been bruised, it’s hard for you to believe in love again. You’re constantly drunk on the idea that things are good only in the beginning. This does not imply that you’re scared or petrified of relationships, you’re just simply not made for half-ways and half-hearted lovers. You want someone to love you just as passionately as you would love them, you want to be the only one who ever truly conquered their heart. And this exact dilemma screws you up at the confession time.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You’re a sensitive, stubborn and a possessive kind of lover. You believe in the old-school kind of love and value loyalty over anything else. Since you’re still confused whether the other person loves you or not, you spend more time analysing the prospects before making the move. You tend to be shy in starting a conversation, fidget and exhibit nervous expressions around the one you love. You’re also pretty stubborn to ask first and keep testing the other person’s patience. But, meanwhile you keep sending signals to them by showering them with roses, taking them on romantic dates and so on.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Since you’re a maven with conversational skills, expressing your love has never been a problem for you. In fact, you can do that once, twice and even thrice, but to more than one person. And that’s exactly where the problem lies, you don’t know exactly who your heart belongs to. This doesn’t make you a philanderer, you just need to meet the one who sweeps you off your feet and makes your fickle mind settle down.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You, water baby, believe in the ‘all or none’ kind of a love. You’re not sure how to confess your feelings to someone who is half-interested or slightly confused about you. Since you’re the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, you cannot hear a ‘no’ from the one you love, without a tear stream running down your eyes. You can’t let the warm April air make you confess your love to a person who’ll be leaving in May. Therefore, you take cautious baby steps and speak up only when it’s given that you will receive the same kind of love that you are ready to give.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You, the proud royalty of the zodiac, wait for the other person to confess their love first. Because how could they not? How could they not fall for the chivalrous flirting, the grand gestures and the obvious teasing? You think that you’ve sent so many signals to them that they should just burst under the pressure and confess it. You like the high and the ego-boost you gain when you feel like you’ve ‘won’ someone’s heart and not the other way around. Also, since you tend to fall for strong personalities, you can’t accept a person who has hard time saying it first.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Since you’re the perfectionist of the zodiac, you keep searching for the perfect time, perfect place and the perfect way to confess your love to someone. In fact, you feel that you yourself have to be in the perfect state both mentally and physically. You’re best at bottling things inside and controlling your emotions, since you know you’re a sensitive soul. Moreover, you believe in the idea of investing in yourself first before truly investing in another person.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
With all your flirty waves and magnetic charm, it shouldn’t be hard for you to confess your love (even when there’s none). Jokes apart, you can get really indecisive when it comes to choosing a life partner, after all, possibilities and choices in life are endless. Even when you’re very sure that you love someone at first, you can get second-thoughts and doubts over your choice later on. Moreover, you also wish to let go of all the previous baggage of dating before you truly confess your love to someone.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You’re someone who is known for his strength, social intelligence and intensity and you can’t let a gush of love shake away that standing. For you, telling someone you love them means coming off as vulnerable and weak. It means taking off your mask and exposing your sensitive and softer side and that scares you. Therefore, you tend to gravitate towards a person who knows how to read between the lines and happens to be more sensitive than you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’ve been bitten by a wanderlust bug that just won’t let you settle down. Sure you love them and wish to confess it sooner rather than later, but you do not want to move to a new country shortly after that. You’re not sure whether the one you love will be able to keep up with your travel plans and adventurous streak. Until you find your ‘home’, you’re not going to voice your feelings. You want forever.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Being an intellectual person, you tend to over-think a lot. Right away declaring someone you love them is impulsive, irrational and insignificant to you. You believe in taking things slow, building a connection, getting to know them on a deeper level and then making the move. It takes a long time and a lot of courage for you to actually open up and voice your feelings.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
With all your small signs and efforts, you feel that the other person already knows. After all, why would you send a love poem to someone unless you love them? Since you’re a creative soul, you believe that people have the same talent to interpret the cues you give them perfectly. However, what you forget is that at times messages get lost in translation and unless you openly say it, no one will know what you’re feeling.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Being a water baby, you’re bad in dealing with rejection. You don’t know how to not take a ‘no’ personally. You end up thinking that something’s wrong with you and lose sleep over that misconception. So instead, you play it safe and avoid confessing your feelings first.
