Everything has a moment in time when it begins -- including your relationship. This means that, just the same way you have a Sun sign, your relationship has one as well. Your relationship sign, which is determined by your anniversary date, shows the true nature of your partnership and reveals what works -- and what doesn't.
Certain relationship signs are better for long-distance love, while others are suited to a more traditional style of domestic romance. Along those same lines, some couples are built for commitment; others simply for casual flings.
Where does your relationship fit in? Instead of trying to force it to be something it's not, use the wisdom of your relationship sign to help make the most of what you and your partner have to offer one another!
Aries (March 21 - April 21)
Pros: Together, you possess a great deal of confidence, as well as a sense of purpose. You give each other pep talks and encouragement. You're an unstoppable duo once you have a goal in sight. Your sexual chemistry is strong, and plenty of energy between the two of you keeps the passion glowing.

Taurus (April 22 - May 21)
Pros: Loyalty and commitment. Yours is a sensual and loving relationship that craves the finer side of life. Chemistry is more sensual than sexual. Indulge all your senses -- think feathers, scented oils and long massages.

Cancer (June 22 - July 21)
Pros: Domestic bliss is your goal -- you're on an express train to setting up a home together. Kids are a must. Telling each other how deeply in love you are is your biggest turn-on.
Cons: Too much domestic planning can lead to a dead social life. A constricting connection to your past makes it difficult to plan for your future.

Ideal Date: A play that explores relationship themes, or an art exhibition on the human body. Friday is your best date night.
Scorpio (October 25 - November 22)
Pros: No secrets allowed. The two of you want to know absolutely everything about one another ... and in turn, you'll share your deepest feelings. Loyalty, trust and commitment are dealmakers (or dealbreakers) -- without them, your relationship wouldn't survive. Together, you're keen to explore taboo topics and fulfill your wildest fantasies.

Cons: Too much focus on the future leaves you struggling in the present. As a couple, you seem to know everything about everything -- to the detriment of how you sometimes appear to others.
