Optimist To Pessimist: We Ranked Each Zodiac Sign’s Outlook On Love

Everyone might wish to be a rainbow of sunshine during any given day, but sadly, that usually is not the case when it comes to love. Instead, people often times find themselves in an incredibly optimistic mood, and then turn pessimistic at a drop of a hat.

While it’s usually doable to keep emotions in check without fluctuating too much, people can’t say the same when it comes to their romantic futures.  But each astro sign has an incredibly different outlook on love. Some are total romantics hoping for the best out of every situation, and others are not so much.

Whether someone is solo looking for their dream partner, or taken, it’s helpful to know where they stand on the optimists to pessimists scale. Each sign’s internal energy shows in what direction their internal energy is pulled. One sign might often find themselves leaning towards one or the other, but for others, it’s tough to know for sure.

But for astro signs lower on the list filled with pessimistic energy, don’t freak out! While the vibes that a person gives out into the world can definitely manifest their future, that’s not always the case. The best part is that everyone can always work on being more optimistic, even the grumpiest and most negative signs of them all.

Even though you’re optimistic for the future, you understand that things are sometimes out of your control.

Aquarius Taken: The Cards Just Aren’t On The Table

Your optimism seems to have simply disappeared lately. You’re so over hoping for the best and are instead much more focused with the current reality of things right in front of you. Let’s just say the positivity ship has sailed, and you’re left behind dealing with the reality of your relationship.

However, that doesn’t mean that what you and your partner have built isn’t still salvageable. If the two of you are willing to shift into a positive mindset and put in the work, everything could definitely turn around for you. However, if either you or your partner aren’t willing to give their full self to making the relationship work, there is no point. Make a decision on what you’re going to do rather than ignoring the issues right in front of you.

Leo Solo: Maybe It’s Not Meant To Be

Leo Taken: It Almost Doesn’t Even Matter At This Point

You’re so over hoping for the best at this point. Instead, your mind is constantly filled with everything little thing that is wrong that you cannot even think about anything that is good in your love life. While you might be looking at your relationship through an optimistic perspective, let’s just say it’s not with your current lover.

You’re so over your relationship that you’re looking to the future in hopes of hitting it off with someone new. We cannot guarantee that anything like that will occur whatsoever, so you might as well deal with the relationship you have right in front of you. Have a talk with your partner about what’s going on and what your next steps are. While it’s the worst to have to deal with a problem head first, it might be what you’re meant to do!

Libra Solo: Optimism Only Causes False Hope

This is definitely not your most glamorous moment finding yourself as the most pessimistic person on our list. Worst part is, you’re not that surprised.

Due to an array of recent events, you absolutely lost all hope for anything positive occurring in future relationships. 

While it feels like your soul is just filling with negativity, it’s your job to switch things around and build sometime positive out of the situation.

We’re positive that you can turn things around and start looking at the future with a little more optimism!

Libra Taken: Seems Like Nothing Is Working Out

While things were once flying high with you and your lover, it doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Instead, you and your partner are on two different energy levels that just don’t seem to be connecting. Your optimism is completely at 0% as of right now since nothing seems to be going right.

However, don’t forget that your relationship is still completely salvageable. Both you and your partner have put in endless effort to make things work, and you can still do it again. Figure out what is truly important for you and shift your focus to working on exactly that. There is no point in doing anything other than bettering what you already have in front of you!
