But how do you know what needs to be changed in order to give your love life a much-needed boost? The stars can definitely help.
Keep scrolling for the dating-related resolution you should make in 2019, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Let Go of Past Relationships
You're one of the most independent, self-confident and active signs in all the zodiac, Aries. Your dating life is often full of excitement and surprise, but that also means you've been burned more than once. Unfortunately, your anger and resentment regarding past relationships is inhibiting you from moving forward. Let go of those feelings, Aries, and embrace all the magic that a new relationship might bring. Holding onto old grudges is keeping you from moving forward, but as soon as you let them go you'll see a great improvement in your romantic life.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Embrace Independence
You're a practical and grounded sign, Taurus, so you have a tendency to establish yourself in a relationship fairly easily. You like a traditional approach to things and you're pretty comfortable spending a majority of time with your partner, even if it means giving up your other interests and hobbies in the process. This year, embrace your independence and go after the things you're interested in. That doesn't mean you can't pursue relationships, but it does mean you should still maintain your own activities, even when all you want to do is settle in with your S.O. Trust us, incorporating a little separation into your romances will only make things healthier and more exciting as time goes on.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Be Flexible
Oh Gemini, you can expect quite the interesting year when it comes to love. Until early December of 2019, Jupiter will stay in your 7th House of Relationships and Commitment, really adding a lot of excitement to your love life. Since your romantic life is set to take off, your 2019 dating resolution should be to simply remain flexible. Relationships require a lot of give and take, and they often develop differently from how you imagined them in your mind. If you're too set in your ways, you'll ruin the opportunity to experience everything your romance has to offer, so open yourself up to all possibilities and allow your adaptable nature to take control.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Work on Yourself
Before you can have a lasting romantic relationship, Cancer, you first need to work on improving yourself. Your planetary alignments during 2019 mean you're in the perfect spot to focus on health, wellness and self-care. But don't lose hope—by the end of the year Jupiter and Saturn will be working together in your partnership sector to bring some life to your romantic relationships. Think of this year as a chance to become the best you can possibly be, so when the perfect partner comes around you're more than ready to commit to them.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Have Fun
Although you're a lighthearted and carefree sign in general, Leo, you tend to be fairly meticulous when it comes to love. You think highly of yourself, so you're quite harsh with potential partners, as you genuinely believe that you only deserve the best. In 2019, however, try to simply enjoy your relationships. The planets are lining up in a way that should bring lots of creativity and passion into your life, so embrace those good vibes and just go with the flow. It might not be the year you meet your match, but it will be a year full of fulfilling romantic connections, as long as you just sit back and enjoy it without thinking too much.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Be Confident
The planetary movements heading into 2019 will reduce a lot of pressure you've been feeling lately, Virgo. That means you'll be emotionally free to focus on the happy and exciting elements of your romances. Use 2019 to work on your tendency to be overly critical of yourself. Instead of nit-picking your every action, allow the natural happiness you feel foster your sense of confidence and self-worth. You're an incredible catch, Virgo, but no one will start treating you like one until you start acting like it.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Make Decisions
You're a sign who's big on partnership, Libra. You value a romantic connection in your life, and you're good at focusing on your relationships and giving your partners everything they need. However, you often shy away from making decisions for yourself, which you need to improve on in 2019. It's a good year for your love life, Libra, as everything is pretty straightforward in the planetary realms. Remember that you're an equal member of any partnership and start making choices that will advance your relationships in the direction they need to go. It will be difficult due to your indecisive nature, but it will be so worth it in the long run.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Set Boundaries
You're a very passionate, feelings-focused sign, Scorpio, even though you seldom show it. That means you have a tendency to allow your emotions to guide your relationships, often resulting in romances that are highly passionate, but not always healthy. People who consistently drain your energy or interfere with your responsibilities are not people you need in your life, no matter how strongly you may feel about them. This year, set boundaries in your relationships and don't be afraid to cut off partners who are a drain on your resources. It will be difficult in the moment, but you'll be much better off without those frustrating interferences.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Focus on Genuine Connections
Your ruling planet of Jupiter remains in your sign for almost all of 2019, Sagittarius. That means you're going to have a year filled with luck, especially in your love life. However, while you'll be surrounded by people who care about you and want the best for you, your resolution should be to focus on the genuine connections. You have a tendency to get a little caught up in romance, often falling for people too quickly without considering how you actually feel. With so many people around to care about you, try not to get serious with someone unless you're genuinely interested. Not only will it improve your relationships, it will also be good practice for you to zero in on one person, instead of allowing your wandering eye to take over.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Let People In
You're very practical and focused in general, Capricorn, and with Saturn in your sign for all of 2019, your disciplined and controlled nature will only be heightened. You have a strong sense of responsibility, which means you're rarely vulnerable with other people, especially since it requires time out of your busy schedule. In 2019, you'll feel the urge to push people away in favor of completing your necessary tasks—fight it. You'll never connect with anyone if you don't truly let them in, so make a conscious effort to increase your vulnerability this next year and allow other people to truly understand you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Improve Your Communication
You're a highly thoughtful and deeply progressive sign, Aquarius. You tend to think of things from a big-picture perspective, often missing the little nuances of your relationships in your visionary thoughts. In 2019, however, you should focus on fostering communication in your romantic relationships. The movement of the planets don't have a direct impact on your romantic prospects, setting you up for a year of controlled decision-making in your relationships. Use it to build openness and honesty in your partnerships. Both because you need the practice, and because it will lead to more powerful, longer-lasting connections.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Take Your Time
You're a romantic, compassionate and caring sign, Pisces. Your Water element means you're connected to your feelings, which also means you're prone to passionate, short-lived relationships. In 2019, try to take your time when it comes to romance. A relationship that develops more slowly isn't free of enthusiasm or love. In fact, it's often more stable, giving you a chance to develop the loving lifelong relationship you've always dreamed of.
