How Are You Single vs Taken According To Your Zodiac Sign

Ever feel like your friends get a personality transplant when they get into a relationship? Sorry, amigo, but the same thing happens to you, too. Being single, you can do what you want, when you want. Though you don’t completely alter who you are as a person when you’re all loved-up, there are some things that need to be changed when you want to fit into another person’s life. After all, every relationship is about compromise, right?

Read on to find out what the stars say about the differences between your single and taken selves!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @fabiolagambardella

Single: Aries, you’re one independent, dynamic soul. You radiate passion even when you’re not in a relationship. You can very easily attract friends, and potential romantic prospects. You get fired up about anything and everything: climate change, fashion, what you had for breakfast … the list goes on. Just be careful, since your attitude can sometimes be a little too over the top.

Instagram: @curly_little_lena_

Taken: You need your relationships to not feel like relationships. Your way of flirting with your partner in crime is by being mean to them – verbal sparring and teasing is your thing. As far as you’re concerned, burdens, duties, and routine signal the death of a relationship.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @segmento_country

Single: Unfortunately, Taurus, being single isn’t really for you. Even when you’re alone, you don’t like feeling lonely. To compensate, you surround yourself with friends, and hunt for new adventures. Sometimes, though, you have a habit of spreading yourself too thin.

Taken: You’re hella romantic, Taurus! Your relationships involve a lot of home cooked meals, massages, candles, and some sexy lingerie. You know there’s no point being in love unless you can show your sensual self. You’re the type to give your all in a relationship, which means that you can become a bit obsessive at times.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @_artwins_

Single: A single Gemini is one hell of a social butterfly. You have so much time to do whatever you want, so why not spend it talking the ear off of somebody else? To be honest, because you are so independent, it can be a relief for you to not be weighed down by a relationship.

Instagram: @beckygworldwide

Taken: You definitely wear the pants in a relationship. This is mostly because you juggle lots of projects at once, so your partner has to be okay with letting you be in charge of your social calendar. So long as they remember that intellectual discussions are your kind of turn-on, you’ll be fine.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @wuchunyi0214

Single: With your ability to adapt, Cancer, you’re surprisingly good at being single. You make a fantastic, reliable friend. In fact, you’re the type of person who makes friends for life. But, be careful when you party, Cancer! That’s when you’ll dwell on all of your insecurities about being single.

Instagram: @beckyg.baby

Taken: Cancer, you are simultaneously the best, and the worst, person to be in a relationship with. You’re loyal and sensitive, which is fabulous when you commit. But, sometimes, this can turn into a real overly-emotional attitude! Your neediness may be the thing that kills your relationships.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @picturesnpixels

Single: Single time is fiesta time for a Leo. Your outgoing and independent personality is party animal material. If you’re single, then you’re more likely to invest time into the drama of all of your friendships. And if there’s no drama happening, then clearly it’s your job to create some.

Instagram: @centrartcityurban

Taken: Are you even in a relationship unless it’s Facebook official, and you have your own hashtag? Leo, you are no wallflower in a relationship. You need to be with someone who understands that the limelight is still yours, even though there’s two of you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @sven.fiedler.art

Single: Virgo, did someone mention workaholic? Being single means throwing yourself headfirst into your work life, and getting things done. And you’re good at it, too. So much so, that you might get a little stressed from the workload. We mentioned work, right? Right.

Instagram: @centrartcityurban

Taken: Your relationships turn your projects from work-related to relationship-related, Virgo. Even if everything is going swimmingly, you’re still prone to worrying about the tiny little details of your relationship. Because maybe that green sweater they wore last night was sending some subliminal message to you. If only you could figure it out …

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @trellis_weddingware

Single: Libra, you know that being single is about getting in touch with your zen side. You’re the type to invest in a new all-green diet, an aquatic yoga routine, and take up language lessons. Being single is about being positive, discovering a new you, and having a proper work-life balance. Or, so you’ve been told.

Instagram: @etna_backtobasics

Taken: You’re guilty of being a bit of a flirt when you’re in a relationship. And, not just flirting with your partner, but with everyone. After all, no-one takes you seriously if you’re already in a relationship, right?

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @hashtaginstandreas

Single: You can be an introvert even at the best of times, Scorpio. When you’re single, you prefer to be alone. This can be a good time for you to get in touch with your dreams and ambition, and really excel with your job.

Instagram: @11.17s

Taken: Scorpio, relationships are about the sex for you. If you’re getting along, then it’s time for a good bonk. You’ve just had a fight? Better resort to make-up sex. Or angry sex. The point is, you can’t keep your hands off your partner.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @heydeezee

Single: With your easygoing nature, Sagittarius, you take being single in your stride. You’re not worried about being alone, and neither are you scared about being surrounded by people. To be honest, the only thing you really worry about is whether you’re having a good time.

Instagram: @clushbabe

Taken: One of the biggest benefits you get from being in a relationship is having someone who’ll make sure you arrive at events on time. Seriously! You’re forever running late, Sagittarius.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @jaffar__sathick

Single: The single life for you, Capricorn, means devoting your time to others. You’re super helpful, and you always do your best to make a sad friend feel better. But, since you’re one stoic person, you don’t expect others to return the favor.

Instagram: @square_peg_images

Taken: Funnily enough, you treat your romantic relationships the same way as what you treat your friendships! You prefer to take things slowly, Capricorn, so it may be a while before a new partner gets to know the real you. But, slow and steady wins the race, so maybe you’ve got a winning formula on your hands.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @bethcassini

Single: With your fierce sense of independence, Aquarius, you don’t really care if you’re single or taken. Being the sign of groups and friends, you prefer to focus on making friends that fill up your cup. For you, the most important question of all is whether you’re feeling creatively and intellectually fulfilled.

Instagram: @msalexsky

Taken: If you’re in a relationship, then your loved one better know sooner rather than later that you’re much like a household cat. You need your alone time, and plenty of it. But, you also expect to be showered with affection when you want it. Yup, you can be a tricky one to love, Aquarius.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @mike_bawue_photography

Single: You’re one social star sign, Pisces, since you find being around other people helps keep your life simpler, and more balanced. You’re definitely in your comfort zone when you’re surrounded by other people, so being single for you can be challenging.

Instagram: @kimyfitness

Taken: Pisces, you’re at your best when you’re in a relationship. You’re a generous, soulful and romantic person. Plus, you’re very supportive of your partners. Make sure you’re with someone who truly appreciates you, Pisces, because your giving nature makes it easy for people to take advantage of your goodness.

Intro To Palmistry: The First Steps To Becoming A Palm Reader

 “Just as a pebble thrown into the water creates ripples, so our thoughts create similar effects on our palms.”

These words from Michael Scotts perfectly summarize the essence of palmistry. Although there are still many of those who use this ancient Indian art today, some will mark it off as superstitious. Many people believe palm lines are nothing more than skin creases because palm reading is not backed by science. Luckily, many of us understand that spiritual things cannot be proved by laboratory methods. Their proof lays in thousands of years of their existence and countless souls who use them to find their life answers until this day.

If you to want to dwell deeper into your own self, with an aim to prepare for the future or to better understand your purpose in this world, then you’re in luck. Although mastering palmistry takes years of dedicated practice, everyone willing to invest some effort can learn its fundamentals. Read along if you want to become a palm reader yourself.

1. Which hand should you read?

The hand mainly used for reading is customarily referred to as the dominant hand. There are differences between various palmistry schools when it comes to choosing the right hand for reading. Some of them will say that the women should refer to the right hand as their dominant, while men should go for the left. Others believe that the hand you use to write is the dominant and represents the conscious mind, while the other demonstrates the subconscious.

All of this can be confusing for newcomers, so the most common recommendation for those just starting out is to read the hand you use predominantly. After learning the fundamentals of palm reading, you can proceed to explore other schools and styles.

2. The Four Elements

Like astrology and countless other esoteric practices, palmistry also uses the four elements: earth, fire, water, and air. In palm reading, these elements refer to four main hand shapes. When you understand the shape of your hand, you will understand it’s lines more easily.

3. The Earth Hand

The earth hand is recognized by its square look, with palm and fingers being approximately the same length. This hand is heavy and marked with rough skin and fewer lines than other hand shapes.

Those with earth hands are known to base their decisions on instinct rather than referring to books and education. They are strong and lean towards physical work, thus usually have a healthy and robust constitution. They are practical and appreciate stability more than anything else.

4.  The Fire Hand

Fire hands have short fingers that emerge from a narrow and long palm. As their name implies, those with fire hands are passionate, dynamic and short tempered. They shine in competitive environments and are great leaders due to their persistence and an ability to follow through their plans. To ensure to stay calm, they need to do a lot of physical activity, so they will commonly have a well-developed, athletic build. 

5. The Air Hand

Air hands are square with elongated fingers and wide set thumbs. They have light bones and their skin is often dry. People with air hands are intellectuals, who are keen to learn new things and excel in social skills. Their questioning nature keeps their mind working at all times, and they tend to internalize their emotions as a result. This over analyzation and a lack of emotional intelligence make them more prone to mental disorders. However, those who transcend these issues become excellent partners as well as advice givers.

6. The Water Hand

Long fingers and oval-shaped palm indicate the water hand. People with water hands are the most unstable of all types, which is a result of their overly emotional nature. Their feelings will commonly take over their logic, so they have a hard time dealing with stress and anxiety. They are creative and are encouraged to do art as it helps to develop their personalities. However, they should also try to seek more stability in their life, by developing a daily routine or doing more physical jobs.

7. Palm Lines

While the lines can differ on every hand, the ones that are most common are the life, heart and head lines. These are the core lines and should be examined first. There are many details that go into reading every line, but in this article, we will cover the basics. That will ensure you have a proper starting point for your future learning.

8. The Head Line

The head line sits between the heart and life lines. It starts between the forefinger and thumb going towards the middle of the palm. It represents everything intellectual, from your attitudes and beliefs to your intuition and strength of will.

9. Short Head Line

A short head line ends before your middle finger and indicates that you are fast in making decisions, and prefer physical tasks over those which test your intellect.

10. Long Head Line

If your head line extends all the way to your pinkie, you are a daydreamer, artistic and tend to get lost in your thoughts a lot, especially when making decisions.

11. Broken Head Line

If your head line splits in two, it indicates that you are inconsistent. However, you are also open to hear different opinions and perspectives, as well to change your own.

12. Heart Line

Widely known as the love line, the heart line sits just below the fingers and spreads from your pinkie towards your index finger. It represents your romantic relationships, but also your emotional intelligence and cardiac health.

13. Long Heart Line

If your heart line spreads all the way to your index finger, it usually means that you have a satisfying love life, and are a conscious person who cares about others.

14. Short Heart Line

If your heart line ends below your middle finger, you tend to be selfish in love and value your freedom more than intimacy.

15. Broken Heart Line

If your heart line is split in two, it means that you’re more likely to experience love trauma because you tend to put your loved ones before your own needs and dreams.

16. The Life Line

 Twitter/ @1stdibs

The life line starts in the same spot as the head line and spreads towards the center of your wrist. It shows your health, general well being and the direction of your life. Despite the common belief, this line doesn’t indicate the time of your death.

17. Long Life Line

Instagram / @niyati_palmistry

If your life line goes all the way to the root of your palm, you are a strong personality who can always be counted on. It also indicates your vitality and caution in relationships.

18. Short Life Line

If your life line ends in the center of your palm,  you’re easily manipulated and prefer to keep yourself busy in order to feel safe and comfortable.

19. Broken Life Line
