How Each Zodiac Sign Acts When They’re Secretly Unhappy in a Relationship

Aries (March 21st to April 19th)

While Aries are great at displaying signs of anger, when they are unhappy in a relationship, they won’t argue or fight- they’ll just drift away and shut you off and won’t confront you about it. This is in contrast to Aries’s natural urge to tell their partner everything and share everything that’s on their mind. One of the biggest clues about an Aries being unhappy about their love life is that they’ll become silent and not speak up as openly as they used to.

Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

One of the best ways to understand if a Taurus is unhappy in their relationship is to pay attention to how often they try to look happy. These individuals at times, can go overboard with attempting to appear as happy as possible- whether it involves posting a lot of photos on their social media about their perfect life, or just the fact that they try too hard to appear happy all the time. That’s actually the biggest clue about them being unhappy in their relationship.

Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)

When a Gemini is unhappy in their relationship, they’ll express how their entire life is a total mess- from career to friendships and everything the between, except for their love life. They’ll be crying for no reason and while they will not be subtle about their unhappiness, they will be indecisive about the actual reason for them being in such a horrible state. They will try to throw their discontent on everything else but face the fact that they are unhappy with their love life.

Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)

Cancers become petty when they are unhappy in a relationship. They’ll express their discontent to their friends and make passive aggressive comments sometimes, just to release their pent up anger and unhappiness instead of actually trying to fix the reason for the same. They are big lovers at heart and really sweet, but when they start to get sour, you can easily make out that something is wrong.

Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)

When unhappy in a relationship, Leos can become aggressive and then dismissive, and can sometimes become brutal too. This is because their confidence comes from happiness in their personal life, and when that is threatened, they lash out, become insecure and also sometimes start trying to move on.

Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgos, when unhappy in a relationship, will throw themselves in anything to distract them. They have a passionate heart, and can get distraught easily even when they come across as calm and collected. If you find a Virgo trying too hard to immerse themselves in part of their life that doesn’t usually get that much attention, it is a sign that there’s something wrong with another part of their life, usually their love life.

Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)

When unhappy with their love life, Libras get themselves obsessed with work. They may be the lovers of the zodiac, but they are also workaholics. When they experience an unbalance with their life, they throw themselves in something else to keep themselves occupied and distracted,  very much like Virgos.

Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)

Scorpios express their unhappiness in a different way. They start to freak out about things that are not necessarily related to their love life, and also express the refusal to commit. Being the intense and honest lovers that they are, they don’t drag on and continue a relationship if they aren’t really happy, because their emotions get the better of them and rip them too quickly.

Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)

Sagittarians become passive aggressive and start having outburst of emotions and anger suddenly and out of nowhere if they are not happy in their relationship. They may seem light and humorous on the outside, but their unhappiness always makes itself and they can’t hide it for long. Keep an eye out for strange offbeat jokes and weird comments and you’ll get an idea of their underlying emotional state.

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)

Capricorns may try to control everything and try to get down to the root cause of the problem in their relationship and try very hard to fix it, even in cases when it isn’t really workable. In fact, they indulge themselves so much in it that their relationship becomes their life, they need to have absolute closure about anything and everything, and don’t like feeling ungrounded or not knowing where their relationship actually stands.

Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)

When broken in a relationship, they start to pursue grand and huge dreams and make a major change in their life such as moving on to another country or starting a business. Aquarians are work oriented people, so if they’re not happy with their better half, they go into an overdrive and start focusing on their work life more. One of the biggest indicators that they’re unhappy is that they won’t give you enough of their time, and will focus on their career.

Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)

When unhappy in a relationship, a Pisces starts to want to be free and experience anything and everything life has to offer. Their interests change all of a sudden, and they want to see more of the world around them and experience much more than just building a life with their partner. They may claim to love their partner, but deep down, they’re just really hurt.
