We often ask ourselves why we want to be in relationships, which is a really good thing. It’s good for us to know why we’re motivated to commit to certain people over others and why we stand for some things and not for others. However, not many of us wonder why we’re not in relationships. When we’re single, we’re either not worried about getting into a relationship or totally preoccupied with getting into a relationship. Many of us turn to our zodiacs to figure out why we’re single, or to personality tests, or whatever brings order to our lives. However, one thing that many people don’t consider when they’re thinking about their zodiacs is their moon sign.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with moon signs and how they fit into your overall self, your moon sign is an added facet to your personality that gives you an extra window into who you are. In short, your moon sign is especially indicative of your emotional side and needs — more specifically, your unconscious and instinctive behaviors.
If you’re a person who doesn’t feel like their regular zodiac sign says a lot about who they are, chances are you’ll see a lot more of yourself in your moon sign than most.
Even if you see a lot of yourself in your regular sun sign, your moon sign will give you an added piece of the puzzle, too. If you’re wondering why you’re single and you’re not discovering any real reason why, your moon sign might provide you with some new insight. With that, here’s why you’re still single based on your moon sign. Make sure to check out your moon sign’s element along with your sun sign!
Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You’re Secretly The Scariest Person On The Dating Market
As a Water Moon sign, you’re a person who is emotional, intuitive, and sensitive to how others think and feel. No matter what your Sun sign is, somewhere below the surface, there’s a big heart just waiting to show itself. You might not like having your heart firmly sewn onto your sleeves there, but it’s one of your best qualities once you learn how to accept it. You’re single because your relationships tend to be incredibly passionate, perhaps too passionate. This is because you’re a person who tends to be drawn to personalities that aren’t really prepared to deal with your intensity. In reality, your element is secretly the scariest zodiac element in the dating market. You don’t realize that you’re scary because you’re so sensitive, but it’s your sensitivity that’s the biggest factor with this because it’s so easy to set you off.
Cancer: You’re Too Guarded, A Bit Too Sensitive, And You Tend To Isolate Yourself
Scorpio: You’re Super Intimidating And Scare People Off
Pisces: You Come Off Like You’re Laughing At People
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): You’re A Little Flaky With People
Gemini: Nobody Takes You Seriously In Relationships
Libra: You’re A Charmer Who Flirts With Everyone
Libra Moon signs love the idea of love. You’re a person who needs to keep your emotions balances and will do a lot to make that happen because without that balance, you can’t function as a person. You like getting along with people and talking to people, so you’re actually a great communicator and can deal with problems easily. You’re probably the mediator out of your group of friends, come to think of it. You’re single because you tend to be a major flirt, regardless of your Sun sign. Your love for the idea of love and being in love leads you to flirt with everyone, and while this isn’t a bad thing, your being single comes down to you not taking the real relationship seriously. You have no shortage of admirers, but you just have to pick one.
Aquarius: You’re Unapproachable And Tend To Forget That People Exist
Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): You Don’t Want To Scale Back Your Personality
Aries: You’re Loud And Tend To Scare People With Your Energy
Leo: You Want Someone Who Will Love You More Than You Love Yourself
Sagittarius: You’re A Player Who Hates Commitmen
Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): You Have Different Priorities
Earth signs tend to keep it real. You’re grounded, practical, and smart in a way that lends itself to a lot of different situations. You’re not really a person who gets lost in their thoughts much: you choose a way forward and go with it. You tend to take things slow in most types of situations, which makes you one of the most stable people to have a relationship with, even if your Sun sign is one of the more flighty ones. You’re single because you’re just not here for the dating scene in general. It can be a little overwhelming for you to deal with, so you choose to focus on other things. You tend to get frustrated with the way people date nowadays, so you kind of prefer to just not do it unless someone really special comes along. You like to think of this as you having standards.
Taurus: When You Get Burned, It Takes Years To Recover
As a Taurus Moon sign, you’re a loving, caring, and sensitive person who loves all things beautiful. Unfortunately, your caring soul makes it so other people feel like they can take advantage of you. However, people can’t help but really like you because of your devotion and loyalty: in a relationship, you give everything you have and expect that same thing back. You’re single because when you get hurt, you tend to close yourself off and retreat into your shell, only coming out under dire circumstances. This means that you can go years without ever having a date and you’ll be totally fine with that because you’re just not ready to put yourself out there. You need to feel secure and confident before pursuing a relationship and you’re just not there yet. However, if you’re treated well, you open up considerably. As a Taurus Moon sign myself, I can attest to this.
Virgo: You’re Shy, Which Tends To Give People The Wrong Impression
Virgo Moon signs are great thinkers and have a good sense of who they are. However, you’re a really reserved person, which makes people think that you’re shy. That’s not a bad thing by any means: you’re just a person who likes being able to help others even if you’re not in the spotlight. Even if your Sun sign is one of the more overtly extroverted ones, your Virgo Moon sign tempers that a bit and makes you a practical and pragmatic person in life and in love. This is why you’re single. Your shyness and penchant for getting caught up in everything else you’re doing make people get the wrong idea about you and think that you’re not interested in dating at all. You’re also a person who has really high standards when it comes to dating and refuses to settle, which can be a factor in your singleness.
Capricorn: You Never Smile And Scare People With Your Ambition
As a Capricorn Moon sign, you might not want to admit that you’ve got an emotional side. You’re a no-nonsense person who is very comfortable being alone and upfront about what you want to accomplish in life. However, the last thing you need is to be wrapped up in your work all the time, especially if your Sun sign isn’t as much of a Type A personality as your Capricorn Moon. You’re single because your ambition is honestly a little scary for some people. You come off as very serious because you don’t show your more fun and relaxed side to people you don’t trust, so it’s a little difficult for you to meet new people to date because they’re getting your more deadpan side.
