Looks can be deceiving.
It’s easy to be on the outside, look at a relationship and think that it’s perfect. But only the people involved know the truth behind their relationship, and no matter how healthy it may seem to others, it could actually be a very toxic relationship.
In astrology, there are a few zodiac signs who appear to have perfect relationships. But looks can be deceiving.
You see their Instagram posts, everything is beautiful and fun, and you envy their life. And sometimes, that’s exactly what they want you to think: that their relationship is without flaws or conflict. But the truth may actually reveal a quite toxic relationship they’re ashamed to be part of.
What does a perfect relationship look like? Are the two people involved always smiling, happy, and in agreement? Does a perfect relationship allow for growth, or does it restrict either of the two partners from changing? Is there less tension in a perfect relationship, and is any negativity hidden from the outside world?
While looks can be deceiving, there may be some truth to the perfection of their relationship. It’s likely they put in the work to achieve their successful relationship, and put most of their energy into what their partner needs.
There are some people who might not think their relationship is anything close to perfection, but they try to spend quality time with their partner. You can’t have any kind of relationship if you don’t nourish it and let it grow.
So, who are the zodiac signs who show the outside world they have a perfect relationship, when the truth is far from that?
1. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Relationships and family are extremely important, so Cancer will do whatever they can to make their relationships work. From the outside looking in, their relationships look loving, protective, and both parties are heard.
Cancers are intuitive, so they try to anticipate their partner’s needs. They tend to change moods rapidly, but this may be something that Cancer would only share with those closest to them.
2. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos know that a lot of people look at their life as a guide for their own. Leos are generous, warmhearted, and loving, and they’ll do whatever they can to make sure their partner is happy. But no relationship isn’t without its tensions and difficulties.
This zodiac sign would prefer not to share their personal relationship troubles with the world. Leos don’t want other interfering in their life, but it’s up to them and their partner to handle whatever problems they may have — without anybody else getting involved.
3. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns work extremely hard, in general, but they work especially hard with their relationships. Their relationships are one of the most important aspects of their lives. People may think Capricorn has a perfect relationship, but that perfect relationship takes time, patience, and wisdom.
Whatever troubles Capricorn and their partner may have, they have what they need to find solutions to the problems. Capricorns don’t like sharing their dirty laundry with the world, after all.
4. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are so kind and compassionate, and they’re devoted to their partners. It’s obvious that when a Pisces is in a relationship, they’re all in. Their relationships appear almost magical, and full of love and affection.
Pisces tend to be completely unselfish and put their partner’s needs above their own — too much, sometimes. If there’s trouble in the relationship, they may take on most of the responsibility to fix it.
5. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Many Virgos have a perfectionist streak to their personalities, and they would want their relationship to appear perfect. To be fair, though, Virgos tend to be very good partners. They’re smart and can make anything better, including their partner’s mood.
They’re trustworthy, loving, and kind with their partners. If there are any issues happening, they may not be obvious to anyone on the outside, and Virgo and their partner will work on them — together — to fix the problem before it becomes irrevocably broken.
6. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarians tend to like people, and when they’re in a relationship, they don’t just love their partner — they thoroughly enjoy them. Aquarius may not be super emotional all the time, but they’ll be there for their partner when they’re needed.
Their relationships appear to be fun, full of humor and always evolving. If there’s a problem, Aquarius will use their ability to see things outside of the box to help find the perfect solution. Their relationships may not be the standard definition of perfect as being without flaw, but in their eyes, they are.
