Your partner has an annoying habit that makes you wince every time he or she does it. Can you express your dislike for their quirk without causing a major rift in your relationship? Your Sun sign has more!
Aries is not known for being tactful, and often just blurts out what comes to mind without considering their comments' effects on others. Fortunately, their partners usually realize that the brash Ram is not ill-intentioned. Often their scud-missile approach works, and after the initial hurt passes, their lover will do their best to change.
Taurus will sulk for quite some time, hoping their partner will pick up the hints. When that doesn't work, they're likely to explode, which of course can be destructive to the relationship. The Bull needs to be more steadily assertive, voicing their dislikes in small portions over time.
Gemini has no problem expressing their feelings, and at times they can come across as too critical of others' faults. So, naturally, if they have a sensitive partner, feelings can easily get hurt. Luckily, Gemini is fairly easygoing and won't be too hard on their mate.
Cancer hates anyone pointing out their own faults, so they have a hard time letting anyone else know what irks them. Worried that bringing the problem up will generate an argument, they'll tiptoe around, dropping hints and manipulating the situation so someone else eventually does the truth-telling for them.
While Leo has no problem pointing out what bothers them, they fail to consider that their mate won't appreciate being humiliated. When their brash behavior negatively affects their popularity, however, the Lion will quickly retract their criticisms. Over the years, their lover will likely adjust their bad habits in order to avoid further embarrassments.
Virgo's eagle eye will often spot flaws in their partner's less-than-perfect behavior. They yearn to point out every mishap, but they'll eventually learn that this often produces a negative outcome. Instead, they'll wait for the right moment and use it in negotiations when they're asked for a favor.
Libra will beat around the bush anxiously, with little sense of whether pointing out their partner's faults is a good idea or not; in their hesitancy, they'll miss the chance to express how they feel. Then, when they finally come out and say it, they'll do so with such tact that the point may not sink in!
Scorpio will brood and make it very clear that they're displeased. Their partner may be puzzled as to why their Scorpio is pouting, then ask themselves what they've done wrong. This is all part of Scorpio's strategy, since eventually the problem will magically disappear without a word being said by anyone!
Unsurprisingly, Sagittarius will say exactly what they're feeling. The unedited truth may be delivered like a thunderbolt, but their partner is probably accustomed to their Archer's tell-it-like-it-is approach. To please their Sagittarius mate, they'll soon drop their irksome habit to keep the relationship strong and pleasant.
Capricorn can be condescending, criticizing their lover for not meeting their unusually high expectations. This can easily cause a major blow-up if their partner has had it with the Goat's stubbornness.
Aquarius is tolerant of differences and unlikely to make a fuss over their lover's habits. If certain behavior does get under their skin, though, they'll research it before returning with evidence that the habit is indeed bad -- as they persuade their mate that it's in their own best interest to stop.
Pisces dislikes having to speak out in any forceful way. In fact, they'll avoid the problem and become panic-stricken when they feel their irritability rise. They may be prone to dropping obvious hints, but they're more likely to silently retreat into their own bubble of resentment.
