How do the various zodiac signs behave when they are in love? In the second part of this 3-part series, I shall look at the second quadrant of the Zodiac - Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio - and the characteristics and mannerisms which they portray when in love.
LEO: As a Sun-ruled native, you naturally gravitate towards the spotlight, where you love to soak up the attention and accolades given by others. Being a feeler sign that rules the heart, you are always craving for love in your life. Although you take love seriously, there is often an element of possessiveness involved in your giving. There is a tendency to be too caught up in your own romantic ideals which ultimately do not measure up to your expectations in reality. When things don't go your way, you are prone to temper outbursts and attention-seeking tactics. The greatest challenge is for you to move past your self-centered view and focus on the needs of your partner as well.
VIRGO: Though you are discriminating by nature, Virgo is a sign of change and process and your love for editing, change and analyzing can be upsetting to your partner without you being aware of it. The tendency to live primarily in your heart can make you cut off from your emotions. The tendency to vacillate by going back and forth in matters of the heart is emotionally draining. It disconnects you from the joy that can arise when you give in your heart's desires. With your innate penchant for analyzing, categorizing and putting everything into order, you can be continually searching for the 'perfect' mate without success. Learning to accept the feeling part of yourself and giving up on the self-sabotage tendency to resist joy have to be acknowledged first.
LIBRA: Your innate sense of fairness and balance creates much harmony in your relationships as you dislike unpleasant things and avoid confrontation at all costs. The problem arises when you get caught up in your romantic ideals and fantasy which hardly match up to reality in the end. When you project your expectations onto your partner, this eventually churns out disappointing results as it is a form of disillusion in the first place. There is a tendency to vacillate, hide out in the head and evade or hold back emotionally when you are confronted with something you dislike. When you are able to make sound decisions based on reality instead of romantic ideals, you will be able to attract someone with whom you can forge a real long-lasting bond.
SCORPIO: When committed in a relationship, what you really want is to combine emotional and sexual love in a soulful bonding. As much as you are capable of extreme self-sacrifice for those you love, your tendency to go to extremes must be counteracted or you'd end up in a self-destructive mode, losing those whom you love most. You have a penchant for spotting and zeroing in on your partner's vulnerability. Control methods like this are destructive to your relationships. Instead of competing to gain an upper hand in the relationship, you must give both parties space so that you can come together as distinct individuals.
