Cancers are known for how deeply they care about others. This water sign has big feels—meaning they're also extremely sensitive—but they have a tendency to retreat into their shell to protect themselves. "Moon-ruled, you often can only catch a flicker of what is really happening beneath the surface," says Jill Loftis, astrologer and founder of Nuit Astrology. "Yet their passions run deep and strong, especially when it comes to protecting their home, nurturing their children, or caring for their family." Expect that drive to filter into any and all of their relationships.



The passion of Taurus is a slow burn, so you'll need to be patient as they reveal their desires to you. "Their drive and will is applied in the pursuits of pleasure, and they can be deeply passionate about the Earth and nature, good food, good wine, and embodied experiences," says Loftis. But their ardor can also have its pitfalls. "Unbelievably stubborn, this energy can be directed towards nursing an epic grudge or refusing to budge based on principles or ideals," she adds. So, don't get on their bad side or you'll experience some fiery rage.

Sagittarians contain multitudes: They're adventurous, loyal, and gregarious. This mutable fire sign also deeply enjoys "passionate debates of philosophy equally as well as sharing their thoughts on the latest Marvel movie," says Loftis. In addition to some healthy disagreement, "this sign loves to express their zeal in challenging physical pursuits as well as spontaneous sexual exploits," she adds. They are also incredibly independent, so they have "a fervor for freedom." So, be sure to give them plenty of space.
