So, you are divorced or widowed and you don’t want to be alone anymore. What is it like to start dating again? It is really best to take your time and not jump into the first situation just because you want to be settled again. . You can have an ‘interview’ of sorts with potential partners, while you learn more about yourself, your needs, and what and who works best for you. You want to meet that special one to spend the rest of your life with; someone with whom you share the same goals, and with harmony between you that just flows easily. How do each of the Zodiac Sun signs relate to their partners?
Aries: The first time they were probably the stronger marriage partner because they always enjoy being needed. But probably now they are tired of that situation and want to have a partner who is more of an equal. Known to be impetuous and rush into things, being a little older and wiser, they probably will take their time before rushing into anything this time around. They like their independence but are now willing to give the same to a partner.
Taurus: They stay in marriages and try their best to make them work, knowing change is taking a risk. But if it’s the second time around, they look for financial security as well as physical love and someone who enjoys food as much as they do. They like the time they spend being on their own and dating, and they usually go slowly, waiting for the person who fits into their life effortlessly.
Gemini: After a failed marriage or losing a partner, they probably enjoy the dating experience and really like being single and do not feel a strong urge to remarry. If they had to struggle to fit into a relationship and it was too demanding, they want to leave. When they feel ready to try again, they know that they probably won’t be typical. They look for someone who is easy to be with, yet interesting and easy to talk to.
Cancer: Divorces really devastate them and they take a long time to heal. They slowly start socializing and open up a little at a time. They do remember how nice intimacy can be. They also remember how good it feels to cook a nice meal for someone who appreciates it. Eventually they will feel ready to marry someone who will love and cherish them and they want to reciprocate in kind.
Leo: Sometimes they grow apart from their partner through the years. As they mature and gain greater confidence, it’s easier to find someone a bit more independent, who will not cling to them nor will they expect a devoted audience from the partner all the time, as they did in their younger days. They learn that adult love is true appreciation of each other.
Virgo: It is so difficult for them to find a partner who meets their criteria. But when they do and it ends for one reason or another, they doubt they can find someone else to measure up to their high standards. Eventually as they mature, they learn to let go of being so picky and focus on the important things and they do find another partner. They learn not to nag so much over trivial stuff, which might be the reason for the failed first marriage.
Libra: They love storybook romances and living happily ever after. They soon learn that real life intrudes and reality often breaks up the partnership. They continue to idealize the other person and think they won’t find anyone like that again. They should use their minds and intellect a bit more, rather than indulging in too many fantasies, as they seek another partner. They need to find someone with mutual interests which can then lead to moonlight and roses and a relationship that will last.
Scorpio: They need a deeply satisfying relationship and it’s painful for them to let go and reach out again. But they eventually do, as they realize intimacy is better the older we get. Maturity brings the knowledge of how to respond to a partner on all levels. They learn to stop the games and power struggles that they always enjoyed. Developing a sense of humor along with a desire for depth and intensity can help them to be ready to find the right one.
Sagittarius: In their first marriage, if the partner tried to tie them down and keep them home, they finally learn enough about themselves to bypass that scenario the second time. They believe that love is about the heart, not about the license, so they can enjoy being with someone without a contract. If they do think about possibly marrying again, it’s because they find someone who so fascinates them, they want them to always stay around and perhaps they marry, or maybe not.
Capricorn: Being status conscious, they may have chosen their first partner to advance financially, socially or professionally. Without enough shared love, these marriages end. With maturity and reaching their own achievements in life, they learn to marry for love, pleasure or personal enjoyment. They lighten up and get younger in spirit, yet always tend to keep a sensible outlook on life.
Aquarius: Being naturally rebellious and independent, they may avoid intimacy and find themselves in an early marriage that feels very threatening to their freedom. After some time, through the dating scene, they may develop a friendship with a person who doesn’t feel so threatening to them. They build greater intimacy and eventually realize that they are indeed connected, married or not.
Pisces: In an early marriage, they felt obligated to always be there for the partner and put their own needs last. Eventually, with maturity, they realize they can’t do this anymore and retreat either emotionally or physically. After some time of growing independence. they find someone who understands them; someone with whom they are unafraid to reveal themselves and then they can be truly happy in a relationship.
Being single again has its benefits. It forces people to figure out what it takes to be in a relationship. Many people remarry, believing that this time they know what is required to make a marriage work. Hopefully, they take enough time to learn this.
The post I wrote several years ago called “Another Chance for Love” has been read 560 times so far! That Blog was a clear winner! You can read it, if you scroll down through.
It seems most people want the chance, but then maybe another chance to find the love of their life, no matter what their age.
When I read Tarot cards, this is the most asked question of all!!
I recently learned of a new on-line dating site, where you can submit your birth data and be matched up with astrologically compatible people for dates. I believe this is the best way to find someone to spend your life with. I have been doing Compatibility charts for many years for my clients. I always suggest they might want to get the birth information on that person they are getting serious about. Take the time to find out how they will get along in all areas before life settles down into a routine and they start wishing they had known the partner better before committing.
So, if you are considering an engagement or marriage, consider having a Compatibility Chart done first.

Note: I ran my guy’s birth chart before we got married. Luckily for us, we had lots of harmony. Thirty- three years later, we are still going strong! We still hold hands while out walking and we are in our 70’s now. I feel so lucky, but I was also smart enough to learn how Astrology could help.
We bought the identical card for each other for a recent Anniversary. We were amazed!
It seems that everybody wants to find love. This is the most asked question in readings, followed by career questions!

How does each zodiac sign approach love and romance? As always, after reading your sun sign, read your Rising Sign too! If you don’t know what that is, you are missing out on a lot of information about yourself and you might want to have your natal chart done. Note that the information below may be modified somewhat if you have a lot of planets in a different sign and if you have planets very close to the Ascendant, which is also called the Rising Sign!
Aries the Ram is very impatient and does not want to waste much time on the chase or on the art of seduction. They like to be the initiator and tend to fall in love quickly. The physical side of love is always as important as the romantic side. They are impatient and impulsive and may move on if the flame starts to die down. They are ruled by Mars.
Taurus the Bull must have beauty or attractiveness in the one they love. They are known for being down to earth and conservative, yet they make an adoring lover. They want a partner who understands their sensitivity and uninhibited side. There is a tendency toward jealousy, but once they feel secure, they are faithful and like being married, usually not demanding too much in return. Venus is their ruler.
Gemini, the sign of the Twins – Their dual personality could be like getting two lovers for the price of one. Needing constant change, they will want to keep two partners for as long as they can, and it may be hard for them to settle down too soon. They can live happily ever after with someone who is perceptive, loving, and understanding of their dual nature. Depending on which twin is in control, they could meet a perfect forever partner who offers these qualities. Quick-moving Mercury is their ruler.
Cancer the Crab looks for the big romantic dream but often it doesn’t turn out to be the rosy path they expected. After about age forty, they become much wiser. Security, marriage and a home of their own will bring them the best personal, lasting happiness. The Moon ruling their sign affects their emotions more than any of the other zodiac signs. Until Mr. Right comes along, they will enjoy good romance novels and romantic movies.
Leo the Lion has personal magnetism and knows how to make you feel special, even if you aren’t the only one in their life. Everyone should enjoy being loved by a Leo. They are so warm and considerate, and others could mistake that for a greater interest than they actually feel. They are dramatic in some way and fun to be around. Once happily married, Leo will be a faithful, protective and caring partner.
Virgo the virgin is not necessarily virginal, but is very discriminating. They have a delightful mind and good looks that rarely fade with age. Rather than enjoying the attention they get from others, they look at them analytically. They are not too anxious to get emotionally attached, but once they feel ready; both financially and emotionally, they choose a partner very carefully. They need intellectual compatibility and often find that a mutual interest in work creates a bond. Mercury is also their ruler.
Libra whose symbol is the scales, is seen as the love goddess of the zodiac and the males are noted for their gentlemanly charm. They are very refined in love, and in speech and actions. Small unexpected gifts please them and a gracious, luxurious approach to love works best. If divorced, they can be very discreet and enjoy experiencing different partnerships. There is always a partner around the corner for Librans. Their ruler is Venus.
Scorpio is either the scorpion or the eagle. Once they find a compatible person who can understand the depths of their nature, they are the most exciting companion. They can love with great passion if they decide the person is worthy of the emotional drain. They like being the one in command and can be jealous or experience jealousy from others. Their love may inspire them to write, paint or sculpt, but if it ends badly, that inspiration will dry up and life will be very dismal for them. Pluto is their ruler.
Sagittarius the archer is very interested in people and that naturally leads to romance. They aim their arrow directly at their target and nothing will deter them from wooing their chosen one. Females are more subtle but no less determined. Being a fire sign, they rush quickly into romance. If a partner is not too responsive, they can be content to be an exceptionally good friend. You may need to remind them of birthdays and anniversaries, but they are not usually found in the divorce courts.
Capricorn is the mountain goat. Their ruling planet Saturn often puts up barriers in the realm of romance. Often there is unrequited love and attempting to forget someone, they might go to the altar for reasons other than true love. They are very stable, if a bit serious. They can disguise their feelings very well. They are usually not happy with secret liaisons, resorting to them only out of loneliness or depression. Often Saturn allows them true marital happiness later in life.
Aquarius is the water bearer – But this is not a water sign, rather an air sign pouring out ideas on others. Their ruling planet Uranus, which is the planet of the unusual and unexpected, produces remarkable people in Aquarians. They like partners who are unconventional in some way. If friends wonder what Aquarians see in someone, it rarely matters to them because they can see beyond mere physical attraction. They love to be with someone with whom they can have great conversations.
Pisces the fish – they will want full romantic treatment even after the wedding bells have stopped ringing. They are easily hurt but do get over it quickly. A Pisces can say good bye quicker than anyone else if they are hurt too much or get bored. They idealize the loved one and want to create romantic moments as often as they can. They have practically all the other signs at their mercy when it comes to romance.
When you find that seemingly perfect other, consider having a compatibility chart done so you can see how well all your natal planets connect with each other. Understand your potential life partner so you can work on any disharmony between you and enjoy better harmony together. Many people marry without really knowing their partner and are apt to get a few surprises after the honeymoon.
