If you want to be loved unconditionally, you should have a dog. Or at least that’s what they say because, in order not to be depressing, human beings aren’t really made to love unconditionally. By our very nature we are fickle, selfish, and in an age when our next sexcapade is at hand, love seems almost out of date, having gone the way of the rotary telephone and the 30-pound computer.
But while this is the case for the most part, even astrology and horoscopes can tell you that there are still those who love with all they have, which makes them as close to die-hard lovers as they are. human beings can be. Who are these mythical creatures, these – dare I say it – unicorns?
Here are the five zodiac signs that practice unconditional love.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus lives and dies for romance. They love to love, they love to be loved, and it is love that gets them out of bed in the morning. While this may seem like a contrast that a big, powerful and often possessive bull might be able to love unconditionally, let’s take a look at one of the key Taurus personality traits: stubbornness.
It’s this stubbornness, refusal to give up, which allows Taurus to love deeply and unconditionally. It’s almost like it’s an act of defiance.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Because Cancer is known to be such a sensitive being, when it comes to love it might seem like a snap, but it isn’t. Although Cancer, being a hopeless romantic, loves everything he has and unconditionally he is not a piece of cake.
Unlike Taurus, Cancer won’t sound like a fool and leave before you make them appear that way. However, that won’t stop them from loving you unconditionally from afar.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
The reason why Sagittarius loves so unconditionally? Because they are equally optimists and risk takers. The two traits that are extremely important in loving someone unconditionally.
When something is wrong, especially with their love, Sagittarius looks on the bright side. Then, if it looks like their love is in danger, Sagittarius is going to make one hell of a daring move to keep it intact. Sagittarius doesn’t just love unconditionally, but strives to hold the love they know and have in place.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
When it comes to love, Pisces are a ball of mush. For them, love is not just a matter of romantic love, but platonic love too. Pisces are so full of love, sympathy, and caring for everyone in their life that they leave little for themselves.
But while it may suck for Pisces, to be loved by Pisces is extraordinary. They don’t go anywhere, even in cases where they should turn and run.
VIRGIN (23 August – 22 September)
What keeps Virgo locked in unconditional love is that she doesn’t know how to let go. While Pisces stick around, swallowing their pride when they need it, Virgo love gets trapped because they are so easily overwhelmed that they don’t know how to shake off that love they have for free.
Similar to Pisces, it’s not so good for Virgo, but great for those Virgo loves. Virgo will forgive you over and over again, because that’s all she can do.
