Why You’re Single, Based On Your Zodiac + Tarot


Your card: Page of Cups

Has anyone ever told you that you can be a little emotionally immature? Well, the cards are telling you now. You’re sometimes so focused on making the best of the other parts of your life–filling them with adventure and fun–that you neglect the serious. Either chill out a little or find someone on your wavelength.


Your card: Queen of Swords

You’re direct, which is a plus, but that directness can often backfire. You come across as cold sometimes, and that’s usually when you’re suppressing your emotions. You’re an emotional person. Embrace it. Let it out and you won’t be the robot that everyone’s so intimidated by.


Your card: 5 of Swords

Your relationships aren’t without a lot of conflict. Have you noticed the pattern yet? Perhaps you’re the drama. You’re prone to self-sabotage, and that comes through in your lack of a partner. Quit the fear and negativity and you might just start noticing a drama-free relationship soon.


Your card: The Moon

You’re often left wondering “why.” Why did they break up with you? Why did it start so great and then quickly fizzle out? Why are you single now? It’s precisely all that wondering that’s got you here. You’re in your own head far more often than you’re outside of it. Quit letting fear turn you paranoid and you might just start attracting the right people again.


Your card: 10 of Cups

You’re single because, frankly, you don’t really care about dating right now. You’re pretty happy with your life as it is, so the desire to actually put yourself out there is low–and that’s okay! You don’t have to be in a relationship if you’re not feeling it. Just keep up that content, happy attitude you’ve got going on, and everything will work out.


Your card: 10 of Pentacles

I hate to say this (because it’s rarely true), but your standards might be a tad too high, Virgo. I get that you want someone successful, but holding out for a 6’3″ millionaire might mean that you’ll be waiting forever. Then again, you’ve always been good at sticking to your goals. If anyone can pull it off, it’s you.


Your card: 2 of Wands

You’ve got grand plans, and dating isn’t on the list right now. You have your focus on other areas of your life. You can save the relationship for later. At least that’s what you’re telling yourself. But is it true, or are you just using it as an excuse for why your anxiety is keeping you from trying?


Your card: 9 of Cups

You’re feeling great lately. You’ve never been this content with being single before–and you like how it fits on you. While you’re still interested in finding a relationship, you’re living that manifestation lifestyle and waiting for good things to come to you. It might work, it might not. But you’ll be happy and content while on this ride.


Your card: Death

Don’t start freaking out about the Death card. It just means change: One journey ending and another one beginning. Maybe you’re going through a breakup or there’s instability in other areas of your life. Or perhaps you’re discovering new things about yourself. Ride out this transition period and only then will you be ready for a new partner.


Your card: 7 of Cups

You don’t know what you want right now, and that’s okay. You can either ride out those feelings and hope they go away on their own, or do some self-discovery and transition out of this sooner. Either way, you won’t truly find someone right for you until you find out what you actually want.


Your card: The Wheel of Fortune

You’re just kind of hanging back and letting things happen. You figure that if you were meant to be in a relationship, you’d be in one. And maybe you’re right. Fate could be the reason why you’re single. Or it could be that you’re so willing to let fate decide that you aren’t putting any effort in at all. It’s up to you to figure out which one that is.


Your card: 2 of Pentacles

You have a lot going on. You aren’t going to be one of those people who hinges all their happiness on whether they’re in a relationship. At least that’s what you’re telling yourself, and you mostly believe it. Right now you’re “trusting the process” in hopes that love will find you. Hey, that might work! It’s better than spending all day on dating apps anyway.
