Here's What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Attachment Style

Knowing you who are and how you interact in relationships, whether platonic or romantic, has plenty of benefits. That's why knowing your attachment style, based on you Zodiac sign, is a must.

According to VeryWellMind, an attachment style is how you conduct yourself and engage in relationships. There are four different attachment styles: secure, anxious-preoccupied, dismissive-avoidant, and fearful-avoidant (via Bustle). Bustle revealed that those with a secure style tend to have the healthiest relationships, because they were likely treated with love and respect as a child. The three other attachment styles have a more complicated dynamic, likely stemming from difficulties in their past, present, or a combination thereof. It's important to recognize how you can grow through these attachment styles, as being in a toxic relationship can actually have negative impacts on your health

Since astrology also gives you a little peek about yourself, it's only smart to see how your sign impacts your attachment style. After all, knowing both your sign and its characteristics can help you avoid codependent relationships and charge ahead with healthy unions. 

Regarding a secure attachment style, Bustle noted that Cancers, Virgos, Scorpios, and Pisces fit this attachment style the most. Cancers have a stronger sense of security because of their intuitiveness. Virgos, on the other hand, are more thoughtful, thus having strong security in relationships. Scorpios and Pisces fit a secure attachment style because they reinforce boundaries, are level headed, and adaptable. But what about the other signs left, where do they fit in? 

Here's how the Zodiac signs correlate with attachment styles

As you may have guessed, your Zodiac sign can correlate to more than one attachment style. Nothing is completely set in stone, whether it's astrology or attachment style, so it's important to keep that in mind (via Bustle).

That said, as noted by Thought Catalog, Cancers, Virgos, and Pisces can also have anxious-preoccupied attachment styles. The outlet added that people with this attachment style are secure and fall into the same relationship patterns because of past troubled experiences. For example, while a Cancer is inquisitive, they are also isolating and need constant reassurance, two characteristics that fit within an anxious-preoccupied attachment style.

Furthermore, according to ThoughtCatalog, those with dismissive-avoidant attachment styles have a hard time trusting other people and are fearful of rejection. The signs that fit this attachment style include (but are not limited to) Aries, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Capricorn.

Lastly, people with fearful-avoidant attachment styles are more often than not afraid — they're afraid of getting too close, of being broken up with, of coming on too strong, etc (via ThoughtCatalog). Their fear puts them in a vicious cycle of self-sabotage. Geminis and Libras fit this style the most because these signs are afraid of getting too close or not doing enough in their relationship. 

Yes, it's important to know how your sign impacts your attachment style. But remember, astrology only guides your choices  — you still have the power to improve your relationships based on your sign and on your own accord.
