8 Zodiac Signs That Suck At Setting Boundaries In Relationships

Setting healthy boundaries is an important element in any relationship. It helps you stay in control of your life and reduces your chance of getting manipulated, hurt, or harmed by the actions of others. Astrology tells us that certain zodiac signs find it difficult to establish boundaries because they’re more concerned with pleasing people than doing what’s best for them. Do any of these sound like you?

  1. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) Aquarians can have a bit of trouble with boundaries because of their headstrong attitude and rigid belief systems. Once they have their minds set on something, it can be very difficult to get them to change their minds. When they’re in love, they let their feelings for their partner dominate how they act and feel, so they’ll just keep putting up with anything instead of trying to reach a mutually beneficial compromise.
  2. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Many people born under this sign have a fear of abandonment and rejection, and that fear makes setting and enforcing boundaries a difficult chore. They tend to put the needs of others above their own. They’ll do everything in their power to continuing being loved by their partner even if it means putting up with things they don’t like. They’re terrified of saying no because they think their partner might get angry or break up with them.
  3. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Before you can have a healthy relationship with another person, you need to have a healthy relationship with yourself. Taurus sometimes struggles with creating boundaries because their sense of self-worth is shaky. They don’t feel very secure in themselves and they don’t have strong values they deem worth protecting. When they carry this over to their relationships, they find it hard to set limits and stand by them. They’re just glad that someone likes them enough to be with them, so they let everything slide.
  4. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) The problem with Geminis is that they can be very indecisive. This inability to make timely decisions often leaves them at the mercy of other people’s actions. They find it hard to make up their mind about what they want and what they don’t, so they often let the other person decide and go along with the decision. Since choosing not to deal with things that affect you is not a healthy coping mechanism, it’s not uncommon for Geminis to lose their sense of self in relationships.
  5. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Cancers care deeply about other people. They hate being responsible for anyone’s disappointment or pain no matter how temporary, so they end up agreeing to a lot of things they don’t really want to do. Cancers are afraid that setting boundaries might cost them the relationship or make their partner think less of them. Putting up with things they don’t like seems like a small price to pay to keep that from happening. They’d rather be disappointed in themselves than watch their partner be unhappy.
  6. Leo (July 23 – August 22) Self-confidence, strength, and leadership are just some of the defining characteristics of Leos. Unfortunately, these traits often lead them to sacrifice their own needs and wants for the good of the relationship. They’re constantly trying to keep up an appearance of having it all together, leaving them very little time to check-in with themselves and focus on being their own person. They see their partners as perfect in every way, so they don’t bother setting boundaries.
  7. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) People born under this sign usually think and behave in extremes. They’re either dominating and in control of their relationships or submissive and docile. They know how to put up walls to protect themselves really fast, but they also tear them down just as quickly. They have a hard time maintaining balance because they see love as an all or nothing affair. One minute they’re guarding their boundaries fiercely, the next they’re completely ignoring it and just going with the flow even when they don’t like where it’s taking them.
  8. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21). This sign has a Master’s degree in oversharing. Since befriending people comes naturally and easily to them, they blow past several levels of bonding and just go straight to telling the person they barely know all the intimate details of their lives. The line between what’s acceptable and what’s not gets blurred a lot for them. When they’re in relationships, they just do and say whatever pleases them and allow their partners to do same, even if it makes the other person uncomfortable.
