The zodiac can come into play in many facets of your relationship - like your kissing style and your sex style - so it makes sense astrology and breakups go hand in hand as well. Relationship deal-breakers by zodiac sign run the gamut. Perhaps you're someone who needs a partner who can provide never-ending excitement. Or maybe you're someone who is disappointed your romance isn't as magical as the ones you've fantasized about. Or maybe you keep getting ghosted. Whatever the case may be, knowing why your relationship sucks according to the zodiac may help you avoid future Tinder disasters and lonely nights on the couch with your friends Ben and Jerry. 

Perhaps all your breakups will suddenly makes sense. Ultimately, you can still chart your own course, but having a little insight into how the stars affect your love life can never hurt.

Aries are typically highly ambitious and goal-oriented. They have big dreams and are eager to make them come true. An Aries needs a partner that understands this and gives them the freedom to pursue those goals... even if it means not getting to spend as much time together. If an Aires is in the midst of pursuing a professional or creative career and their partner needs a substantial amount of quality couple time, the relationship won't be very successful.

As the Bull of the zodiac, one of Taurus's best-known traits is stubbornness. This means a Taurus likes to play things safe. This Earth sign needs to be very sure of something, like a new relationship, before jumping all the way in. A Taurus can come around - and will be in it for the long haul - but it will take some time. If a Taurus is with someone who rushes them to do something, their stubbornness will come into play and they will resist. Patience is indeed a virtue, especially in the eyes of a Taurus.

Geminis tend to be extroverts and love chatting with every person in their lives. Communication skills come naturally to Geminis, and they expect the same from others. This doesn't just mean talking for the sake of talking; it means honest communication between partners about their feelings. If a Gemini is with someone who tends to withdraw rather than be open about their emotions, that communication breakdown will likely lead to a relationship breakdown.

Cancers have a tight-knit crew of people with whom they're close. Instead of going out to big gatherings, they'd rather spend time with their small circle of friends or close family members. Building trust with a Cancer may take some time because only a select few get that level of approval, and part of that acceptance process is being liked by their close confidants. To paraphrase the Spice Girls, if you want to be a Cancer's lover, you gotta get with their friends.
