Even if your love life has never made TMZ headlines or inspired a pop song (same), you’ve probably been caught between two choices in ~romance~ at some point, even if it’s only deciding which crush to Insta-stalk tonight. And of course, each zodiac sign has a *unique* pattern they can’t break when it comes love triangles. Don’t believe us? Read on.

Your cosmic love triangle:
Aries are fiery, romantic lovers. They value passion in relationships and like to make the first move…which means they can be impulsive AF. When dating, they’re caught between the “Perfect Match” and the “Bad Boy/Girl/Person.” The first option looks good on paper—they have everything that the Aries should want in a partner. But there’s something about the fiery, dangerous person that Aries can’t quit. Their volatile nature could leave Aries burned, but that’s what makes them so interesting!
Ruled by Venus, Tauruses are deeply romantic. They daydream about finding the perfect partner, and they value consistency and loyalty. It takes them forever to get over a breakup—but if you get on their bad side, Taurus will stubbornly decide to move on anyway. Then they want to “upgrade” when they start their next relationship….but this is what creates their cosmic love triangle every. single. time. When they’re happily with their new boo, aka “the Upgrade,” they can’t help crossing paths with (or lurking on) their ex…aka “the One Who Got Away.” Of course it doesn’t make practical sense to linger, but Taurus’s heart secretly craves the drama.
Geminis crave adventurous relationships. Their life is a whirlwind and above all, they want to have fun. They also secretly like a bit of drama and they love to play ~the game~. Finding someone who can banter with them is one of their biggest turn-ons, which is why they find themselves caught between “the Frenemy” and “the Funny One.” Of course, the frenemy doesn’t have Gemini’s best interests at heart, but the scandalous nature of the romance makes it just so dang fun. And when Gemini finds someone who makes them laugh harder than ever before (especially during pillow talk), they’re head over heels. And TBH, Geminis love being in a love triangle—it keeps them on their toes!
As a water sign, Cancers are deeply sensitive. They long to give and receive love, and they frequently find themselves always fantasizing about their “happily ever after.” Not so fast: There are two sides to their hearts. Cancers are creatures of habit, which is why they often form crushes on people they bump into regularly, like a neighbor, barista, or family friend…aka “the Boy/Girl/Person Next Door.” However, the other side of the love triangle always involves “the Mysterious One.” This person is often someone with a more brooding allure. Why are they always so quiet, yet so attractive? Extra bonus points to “the Mysterious One” if they have a harder shell to crack and maybe a bit of baggage. Cancers love a project.
Leos want to be in the middle of a love story at all times. They demand high stakes. To them, romance is a reality show, and they’re ready to start a rose ceremony at any moment. That’s why they often find themselves drawn to other vibrant people. Meet “the Guest Star,” who is just so hot and looks so good that they make an instant power couple. But Leo doesn’t like to share the spotlight, so enter option two: “the Fan” who worships them. While “the Guest Star” makes them feel like they’re in a power couple, “the Fan” knows how treat Leo like the royalty they are. And Leo has a hard time deciding which quality is more important to them.
Virgos are practical, and they want romance to make sense. Dating needs to fit into their routine, so Virgos often find themselves falling for people who are already part of their day-to-day life—like “The Coworker”…but also “The Classmate.” Yes, Virgos are usually crushing on at least two people at once. They stay busy, so they’re crushing on their work friend and their school friend—or if they’re no longer in school, someone they meet volunteering or in their running club. Before you know it, Virgo will find themselves pulled back and forth between the two, trying to play it safe, until they decide who they really want.
Libras are literally the sign of relationships. They’re always looking for perfect partner, yet on the way, often find themselves swept up in a love triangle that could be the plot of a TV series. Libras often find themselves craving a challenge. Enter: “the Taken One” and “the Player.” Unrequited love is one of Libra’s secret fetishes, because they have a deep need to be chosen. “The Taken One” often ends up being in a relationship with someone else, yet clearly shows interest in Libra, too. This will inspire Libra to linger, waiting to see if “the Taken One” will ever be single. And in the meantime, “the Player” is there to keep them company. Who will it be in the end? I’m ready for the Netflix series.
Scorpios are all-or-nothing lovers. This smoldering, sexy zodiac sign hungers for passion and control. They love it when the chemistry is sizzling and a relationship feels a bit risky, but because Scorpios also crave intense loyalty, the idea of a steady partner appeals to them, too. That’s exactly why they’re constantly in a love triangle with “the Sexy Stranger” and “the Stable One.” “The Sexy Stranger” is usually not at all reliable, dipping in and out of Scorpio’s life with no warning, but for Scorpio, the amazing sex and sense of excitement makes it worth it. On the other hand, “the Stable One” understands them like none other and provides the loyalty they need. Ultimately, Scorpio will probably choose “the Stable One,” but prepare for them to take their time.
Of all the zodiac signs, Sagittarius is the least likely to rush into a commitment. They think that romance should always be an adventure, and it takes a lot for them to DTR. This is why most of Sagittarius’ love triangles begin with a no-strings-attached situation, like a FWB situationship. The two types they’re constantly falling for are “the Vacation Fling” and “the Smartypants.” Sagittarians are fascinated by those with a different background from them, so they’re constantly crushing on people they meet on their travels—or a friend-of-a-friend who just moved to Sag’s city from a different country. The “Smartypants” will be someone who Sagittarius has a lot of interests in common with and who is casually, irresistibly witty and chill. And of course, hot. How can a Sag choose?
Capricorns are practical, serious lovers who want to build long-lasting relationships. They crave stability and certainty, and because of their logical approach to dating, they often treat a date like a job interview (they’re the boss reading the resume). Once they find someone who fits their criteria, they tend to act as if they’re business partners. Yet because Capricorn is also such a ~lusty~ zodiac sign, they often crush on someone hot, mysterious, and totally impractical. They always find themselves caught between “the LTR Material” and “the Wild One.” “The LTR Material” brings them stability, while “the Wild One” is just so passionate and entertaining. Thus, a love triangle is born.
As an air sign, Aquarius is extroverted and social. They fill their lives with different types of people expand their minds through new ideas. Aquarius needs to form a mental connection with their partner before they open up their hearts. But because they have so many acquaintances, Aquarians often end up in love triangles with people in their social circles. Enter “the Intellectual” and “the BFF.” Both connections stimulate them in different ways: “The Intellectual” fulfills the Aquarius on a deep mental level, but “the BFF” is always there for them. Maybe they should have stayed a pal…but if the chemistry is there and the sex is good, why not?
Romantic Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of fantasy and imagination…which is why Pisces are always looking for a fairy tale kind of love. As a water sign, they lead with their hearts and throw logic out the door! If it doesn’t cause their soul to erupt like fireworks, what’s the point? Because of this, Pisces will often get caught between two different connections: “the Creative One” and “the Practical One.” Both represent two opposite needs, but how can you choose? “The Creative One” is often artsy, spontaneous, spiritual, and adventurous, just like Pisces’s storybook fantasies. Yet “the Practical One” helps ground them when their head is in the clouds. The eternal battle between who to choose will plague the Pisces’s heart—that is, until another soul mate crosses their path.
