3 Zodiac Signs Who Are The Most Nurturing In Relationships

Originally Published: 

While scientists may debate nature versus nurture, perhaps astrologists are more inclined to discuss whose nature it is to nurture. Do you always remember to check in with your partner during the day? Do you love helping your boo out with chores around the house? If you were literally born to be compassionate, chances are you're one of the three zodiac signs who are the most nurturing in romantic relationships. From tending to their sick partner to cooking a nice dinner for no specific reason, Cancer, Pisces, and Libra love doing good deeds for those they care about. In fact, they live for it.

Of course, no matter your sign, being there for your boo is a beautiful thing. Maybe you always know exactly what to say to calm your partner down, or you give the best back rubs. Whatever the case, nurturing the people you care for comes in all shapes and sizes. Moreover, the way in which you dote on your boo can depend on your love language, as well as their personal preferences. There truly isn't one right way to nurture your love.

Still, if you are always supportive and attentive in your relationships, you may be one of these three zodiac signs.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

Empathic Cancer is a natural helper. This crab needs to feel needed and loves to be there for the people they care about. Intuitive and attentive, when a Cancer is dating someone, this crab will likely sense what their partner needs before they even ask for it. From cooking a big meal after their boo had a long day to calling at night just to say hello, Cancer lives to nurture their partner. Though they're tender and caring to everyone they come across, this water sign really shines when they fall in love.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)

If your friends were a pack of superheroes, Pisces would be saving kittens stuck in trees and picking up baby birds with broken wings. Selfless and emotional, these fish are natural nurturers. Pisces always knows what to say and when to be there for people in need. In fact, because they're so busy helping everyone else, they sometimes struggle to get their own needs met. Compassionate and patient, Pisces loves to serve those around them, especially in romantic partnerships.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)

Levelheaded and gentle, Libra shows they care through thoughtful actions or acts of service for their partner. Though sometimes, these scales are known for being a little too focused on themselves, when Libras fall in love, they are natural caregivers. Likely to pick up some groceries if they see their partner's fridge is empty or remember to ask about their boo's big meeting at work, Libras like to support their partners in whatever way they can.

No matter your sign, being nurturing in your relationship can make your sweetheart feel totally loved. Whether you're super into verbal affirmations or you show them you care by doing chores around the house, there is no one right way to be in tune with someone's needs. At the end of the day, being there for the people you care about is really special, and that is something everyone can support.
