Aries are full of energy. They’re bold and impulsive. They seem confident because they always have a response; they’re always quick to
act. However, this isn’t always confidence- sometimes it’s just their impulsive
nature that forces them to act. Yes, they are children who know no fear, but
they desperately need emotional support. Knowing that someone else has
confidence in them, that someone is on their team, can push an Aries to become
their best person: a fearless leader.
Taurus – “There’s no rush.”
Taurus hate feeling pressured. They need to feel comfortable
and fulfilled before they reach any decision and definitely before they act.
Having someone who understands their need for security and their slow (omg so
slow sometimes) pace actually helps them feel better about making big moves (which kind
of freaks them out because they don’t like change)!
Gemini – “You’re not crazy.”
Lets be honest, Gemini placements can inject lots of
thoughts and feelings into a person. It creates indecisiveness and mental chaos, which makes a
person moody. And people with Gemini placements know this and are
sometimes unsteadied by the amount of mercurial energy. Having someone tell them that
their need to overanalyze everything is okay and having someone who will listen to their endless thoughts is
extremely validating and comforting to them.
Cancer – “You make a difference.”’
Most Cancers really take on more than they should, and
they’ll take on more if it means helping another. They do this because they
want to change and influence the world in a caring manner. And because they do
this in a caring manner (instead of in a forceful manner (Aries) or strategic
manner (Capricorn)), they sometimes doubt their efforts. They doubt that they have
any impact on anyone, which just isn’t true. A Cancer’s kindness and ability to
provide emotional support and strength to another is unmatched by any other
sign, and someone who acknowledges this “hidden” strength and reminds a Cancer of it when they forget, will satisfy a Cancer in a meaningful way.
Leo – “Let me take care of you.”
Leos are very loyal and will do a lot for their partners and
friends. However, this can not go unnoticed or unreciprocated. Leos need people
to show them that they are thankful by returning the favor and then some. Leos
want you to exceed their expectations just like they would do for you, and they
won’t accept less.
Virgo – “Let me help you.”
Virgos really are about serving people’s needs and in what
way and with what means changes depending on the planet and the house that
Virgo is in. However, the need to serve is definitely present, and there is
nothing worse than someone who consistently takes from a Virgo and never gives
back. Because a Virgo isn’t like Leo, they won’t stop giving, blow up, and cut you off. A
Virgo will continue to give even to their own detriment. This is why a Virgo
needs someone who not only returns a favor but someone who just starts helping
from the very beginning without having to be asked.
Libra – “You’re beautiful.”
Libras are very indecisive. They easily can get caught up in
what people think or feel about them. They constantly are trying to define
themselves and figure out who they are by mirroring others. They spend so much
time looking at others that they frequently can’t identify their own qualities,
which makes them question themselves on every level. To have someone who can
definitively tell a Libra they’re beautiful (inside (Libras want to change the world too) and outside (Libras are vain) and be able to explain to them why,
takes a huge weight off of their shoulders. For a few seconds, they don’t have
to search or mirror because the person in front of them is telling them all
they need to hear. (P.S. You will have to elaborate as to why they are beautiful- in what ways, specific examples, etc. They are an air sign haha it comes with further questioning)!
Scorpio – “I won’t leave.”
Scorpios are intense. Even if they come off light because of
a misleading Ascendant or some other placement, there is a distinct side to them
that is serious, edgy, and somewhat dark. And while most Scorpios enjoy
the depth and transformation that comes with their placement, they can also be
self conscious about it because they know it doesn’t make them the easiest to
deal with, and it can lead to people leaving them, which highlights one of their
biggest fears: abandonment. Scorpios thrive to have someone who won’t leave
them in their darkest night because they need and expect unwavering
loyalty. They also feel relieved knowing that not everyone is scared of (or drowns in) their
Sagittarius – “Be free with me”
Sagittarius loves freedom: freedom of thought, expression,
creativity, expansion, knowledge, etc. And they also love people (because they provide endless learning) and love to
share their experiences of freedom and knowledge with other people, which can
be a problem because people can slow them down. People come with baggage and responsibilities and can lead to becoming attached, which can influence someone to put down roots,
which petrifies them. The run-on sentence is necessary to accurately depict their very real fear of this and them running away. But seriously this is why a Sag needs someone who calms that inner fear of being tied down because they know they have found someone to run free with.
Capricorn – “I appreciate all that you do.”
Capricorns show they care in a behind-the-scenes manner.
They do it through helping and performing tasks- possibly doing things that
are needed instead of wanted. They are consistent providers and supporters, and
because they are consistent, their efforts can be overlooked and/or viewed as boring or expected. This is why when a Capricorns finds someone who acknowledges and appreciates their efforts, they are likely to do even more for that person and consider them as really valuable.
Aquarius – “You’re my best friend.”
People with Aquarius placements go back and forth between
their love for being an individual and their fear of being so different
that they don’t fit in anywhere. They want a companion but not one who wants to
completely merge (because 1. they need to be their own person and 2. scary). They need someone to listen even if they don’t completely
understand them (and honestly an Aquarius doesn’t want to be 100% understood anyway).
They need someone who doesn’t deny their authenticity and isn’t repelled by
their individuality, and who better to do that than a best friend.
Pisces – “You’re my soulmate.”
More than any other sign, Pisces really have a need to merge with
another person. Traditional love isn’t enough for them. They are really looking for
that fated connection, their soul mate. They need to know that there may be a
billion other people in the world and that no one in that billion could replace
them. They don’t need to feel that you chose them but rather that fate, through several lifetimes, chose
the both of you for one another

Aries: She feels no anger. She feels rage. The intensity, the strong, sometimes short but intense feeling of emotions was something she was familiar with, but what she did hate was the feeling of anger she could mostly never shake off. It was always there with her, she let her rage out and it seemed like an exploding volcano. All she saw was red, there was too much energy flowing inside her bones that she could not get rid off and so she let out her anger, and she did not care who would see her like that. ‘I am fire and you will get burned.’
Taurus: He was angry. Angry with the world, angry with this unsteadiness, angry with the fact, that he could not do anything to stop the current situation. Long, slim hands pulled him out of his nest and threw him hard on the ground. He flinched as a cold breeze came and took away all his warmth. “No, do not take everything away from me!!”, he screamed but the dark did not listen. Gritting his teeth he felt his temper raging, long horns started to grow out of his head and he shook his head, trying to get rid of the feeling of losing himself.
Gemini: Emotions were an construct. A map with a thousand of points, connected with each other by a small, small string. No there was a knot in the strings, there and there was nothing else he could do to untie them, to clear up this mess in his head. It was like the road for his thoughts was blocked and now everything just piled up. Irritated he shook his head, even communicating was hard and the knot in his head slowly transformed in his whole body. Then his mind just quit. Rash action.
Cancer: She could not tame herself anymore, she got hotheaded again and knew the will easily fall in an tantrum again. Followed by this feeling of guilt: why me? Why this unfairness? Why the need to upset others and be upset? In the end a wave of intensity and sadness washed her away before she could get a hold of herself again. And getting back to the surface after being pulled down by the ocean would cost her a lot strength. Strength and a long time of swimming through these endless waters.
Leo: “I do not like this”. It all started with the feeling of unfairness, adding a a little bit of hurt to the shattered self that lay on the ground. “I cannot let them now I am hurt! I will not allow them to touch me gain that deeply.” She opened her mouth and showed her long, sharp fangs. She roared. It was loud and vibrant. Whetting her claws she narrowed her yellow, fiery eyes. “Pray for yourself”, she whispered before sprinting to her prey.
Virgo: The head was a like a working space. There were many files and papers he read, worked with, analysed, only to put them into a new file that was stored somewhere in his office. “Wh- what is this?” This certain piece of paper was not like the others. Unreadable. Impossible to put somewhere, therefore it was just out of order. “I..I have the control..”, he said, his hands starting to shake. “I..I have the control over it…I have the control..”, he repeated unsteady before standing up and shredding the unknown paper. He started breathing hysterically, what was that? This brooding fear inside of him? “Control…”, he said one last time before shattering the mirror and flipping his precious work desk.
Libra: These thoughts. These worries. These fears. She did not know what to do. How was she supposed to handle? “It is their fault!!”, she cried. But at the same time is was her own fault. She cried quietly, feeling like she wanted to let everything out, but couldn’t reveal herself, because everyone next door was sleeping. She did not want to disturb them with the mess of feelings. “I will ignore it. Swallow it.” But it was far too much to keep on pretending. She felt like being on fire, but she still smiled. A poisonous, deadly smile. Everyone should feel her poison sting inside their veins.
Scorpio: His anger is intense. It’s like a thunderstorm with roaring thunder inside of him. His heart is beating and he wants to destroy, cry and scream. He wants to let out his darkest thoughts, he wants the world to feel his pain, transformed out of the bitterness. But in the end, he remains silent and waits till everyone left. He could hurt anyone right now, but he know it’ll be no good, knowing that he will destroy for sure if he demonstrates his power. So he balls his fists and closes his door. Outside of his bedroom you can her the thunder roaring.
Sagittarius: ‘Do not stop me’, was all she thought. These feelings were caging her. No matter what she did to distract herself, the anger would haunt her after all, so the minute it became to much she snapped. She could be free spirited and joyous but deep emotions were something completely different, especially anger. Because she was not only the laughter of joy but indeed the stomp of a herd of wild horses swirling up dust as they made their way through the steppe. There was raw force and energy inside of her and that needed to get out, now.
Capricorn: Get a hold of yourself. Get a hold of yourself. Now. But there was no way to get himself under control. There was this dam inside of his head that stopped this enormous river of feelings of overflowing. Now, there were little cracks in the once so strong concrete and each of them plainly showed the nerves he lost from time to time. He sat at his desk, swallowed and closed his eyes. Suddenly, the dam broke. The raging float of dark water swallowed him completely.
Aquarius: She saw it often on other people. Anger. She watched them live it out, stomping with their feet, raging, screaming, shouting. Now? She felt it herself. “I know this, this familiar”, she explained to herself. But familiar did not mean good. She knew her temper tantrums for when she was young. She knew that destructiveness could be a part of it. “I do not want that. I will not.” Suddenly a dark, whispering voice talked to her: “You do not choose to be out of touch. You are not your own master.” She widened her eyes anxiously. And suddenly, it was like she was 7 again.
Pisces: Anger? Anger, he felt it so deeply, anger and the need to cry out of frustration, he did not want to feel it anymore, the worst thing that ate him alive right now. So he grew bitter. “I can turn nasty”, he thought. “I will be the worst if you make me feel this again.” And so he did. So he became the feeling of anger and bitterness himself. As he looked in the mirror he couldn’t recognize himself anymore. Dark, red eyes starred at him, tears flowing.
