Give It Up For You

What kind of sacrifices the different zodiac signs will make for a relationship

By MWB Desk

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

You know an Aries really loves and respects you when they sacrifice their precious time for you, and give you the gift of their full attention. This driven sign is extremely ambitious, so when they make an effort to be present, it is because they acknowledge that you deserve more than fleeting attention, and they are willing to give you what you want.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Taureans are very fond of their comfort zones, and sensitive to disrespect. In an ironic twist, you’ll know a Taurus loves you when they let you get away with bad behavior. They don’t like what you do, and they don’t respect your choice, but instead of beating you up over it, they let you slide. That’s the Taurus “sacrifice.”

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

But Gemini is happy to listen to you for hours. They want to help, as long as it doesn’t cost them a dime. But don’t mistake this for cheaping out; this is a sign that loves to talk, so if they’re clamming up to actually listen to you, you definitely mean something to them.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

As the most giving of signs, there’s nothing a Cancer won’t do for you, and therefore, nothing is a sacrifice to them. Time, money, attention, whatever you need, this sign is only too happy to provide, as long as you reciprocate.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

If you see a Leo giving up anything meaningful to them for you, consider that it was because they weighed that thing against you and judged your worth to be greater. That being said, a Leo is fully prepared to give up everything for the one they value the most.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

One of the things that seems to define Virgo is their pride, and this is also what they will sacrifice in order to keep you by their side. If they care about you, they will support your beliefs, even if it doesn’t align with theirs.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

While this sign has a reputation for being people-pleasers, Librans don’t actually make sacrifices. They will (reluctantly) give up certain bits of themselves for you, because it fits their agenda. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

This is another sign that doesn’t compromise or sacrifice anything easily. So if they are agreeing to go along with something that you want, as opposed to what they want, consider yourself beloved.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

Free-wheeling Sagittarius doesn’t know how to be in a relationship, so if one sticks around for you, that’s a huge sacrifice on their part. But don’t get too comfy…

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

This impetuous sign doesn’t do sacrifice. At all. If you’re in a relationship with a Capricorn, they will push you, demand a lot from you, and expect you to make the sacrifice. But if they deem you worthy of sticking to, you’re going to get a lot of personal growth.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

As idealists, it’s hard for Aquarius to sacrifice in a serious way; they don’t believe they need to give anything up, that their lover should accept them, the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is why they are so prone to breakups. Aquarius doesn’t sacrifice, they expect instead.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

Pisces only sacrifices when they think they can get something in return for whatever they’ve given up. It’s not a sacrifice, it’s a trade. If you’re suddenly getting away with something you couldn’t before, you better believe there’s a price tag attached.
