Can your long-distance relationship work?
March 21 - April 19
Arians are famous for loving challenges. So at the beginning of your separation, you may even feel inspired by your long-distance relationship. Obvious changes in your love life connected with being divided by miles from each other motivate you to find other ways of keeping emotional intimacy.
However, in practice, it requires a lot more energy and effort than you imagined at first. Your main aim should be staying on track. Though the temptation to quit may be too strong, it’s important not to give in. Don't let other people or activities stand in your way of staying committed to your partner.

You are the person who probably doesn’t need any advice on how to keep your romance alive. The way you treat your loved ones makes long-distance relationships seem effortless. Your natural talent and well-developed intuition help you achieve sensual and spiritual satisfaction for both partners.
While you and your partner are separated, meaningful surprises can help you keep the fire burning. Think about whatever reminds you of the time spent together. A scented candle, a scrapbook with your pictures, or a poster with your love-filled thoughts will serve as a good reminder that your relationship is worth fighting for.

People born under the sign of Gemini are communicative by nature which helps you stay connected even when you are far away. Long-distance communication is easy for you. Gemini people find topics for conversation without any effort and can go on eloquently discussing trivial matters for hours.
However, you should pay attention to what you are talking about with your partner. While there’s less opportunity to spend time together, you should make the most of it. Instead of making jokes or small talk, focus on important events or innermost feelings. Sincerity will help you build mutual trust.

You tend to convince your partner that he or she should come and visit you time and time again. Let’s be fair; your partner doesn’t have to make sacrifices alone. It’s natural that you miss your lover and want to spend more quality time together, but there are other options, requiring mutual efforts.
Find an alternative location to visit or meet halfway. The novelty will surely spice up your relationship and release the travel stress. While helping your partner pack, try to resist the urge of pushing your ideas. Although you may sincerely want your partner to settle with comfort, give him or her some personal space.

While phone calls and texts are the only means of communication at your disposal, you can’t take full advantage of your charms. Your outstanding charisma, so powerful in face-to-face interactions, becomes less effective in a long-distance relationship. You might need to reconsider your communication style.
There is a high chance of misunderstanding between you and your partner. The tone of voice over the phone and intricate text messages can easily be misinterpreted. So try to express yourself more clearly. It’s also best not to lead any life-changing conversations and save them for the time when you can discuss it in person.

Your passion for planning will help you focus on arranging the process rather than your emotional strain. This will give you a great opportunity to apply your organizational skills. No one else can create better long-term plans for your relationship, and the distance between you two won’t be an obstacle for you.
There are many things that you will need to discuss. Decide how long you can live apart, whether it’s possible to move together, and schedule the time. But don’t forget that in time the circumstances may change and then you will need to reconsider your plans. Try to stay flexible, no matter what.

Being the most relationship-dedicated of all signs will play a trick on you. The tension of the separation from your loved one can really take a toll on you. Don’t despair! Your partner surely knows how important it is for you to stay connected. Just share your worries and make decisions together.
First of all, you need to discuss what your relationship expectations are and how committed you are willing to be. Don’t give up if your partner is not on the same page with you. You can always negotiate and find a solution that suits you both. Be proactive to save the intimacy in your relationship.

All couples in a long-distance relationship suffer from a lack of physical intimacy. Most of the time we all take it for granted that we can easily get in touch with our loved ones. Naturally, with the distance between you, it’s not possible to meet up as regularly as you used to before the separation.
With the help of modern means of communication, it’s not so hard to remain intimately connected even when you are far away from each other. Use your webcam or smartphone and, of course, your imagination to treat your lover with a playful photoshoot. Or perhaps you are brave enough for a cyber striptease.

To keep an emotional connection while you are far away from each other, try to find common interests. Your relationship will benefit from common goals and activities. Even from a distance, you can still stay connected if you have common topics for a conversation and are mutually interested in each other’s progress.
If your partner has moved to a foreign country, you may support him or her by studying the local language. You can practice together via messages or video calls. Passionate adventurers, Sagittarians will find it especially attractive to plan vacation destinations where you both can test your skills.

Independent Aquarians may actually enjoy being separated from their lovers and appreciate the distance. In a long-distance relationship, you finally get an opportunity to achieve some privacy. It’s critical to have some private space to maintain your individuality, which you so often lack being in a relationship.
However, you should be careful with your newly acquired freedom. If you get carried away too much and keep your partner at a distance not only physically but emotionally as well, you are in danger of losing it all. Everything is good in moderation. Let your lover know that he or she is no less important to you than your individuality.

To cope with long-distance relationship tension, make use of your vivid imagination and creativity. While the reality is harsh and the circumstances may tie our hands, you can still escape into the world of dreams and fantasies. The only challenge you may face is bringing your partner along.
Perhaps you may find it interesting to invite your lover into a romantic online game. When you get an opportunity to meet in real life, create a dreamy romantic atmosphere and continue the game in the real world. This could really renew your intimacy and add a spark to your relationship.
