6 Zodiac Signs Who Like Being The Submissive One In Their Relationship

Because dominance is overrated.

In romantic relationships, there are two types of people: the kinds of people who love to take control of plans and situations and those who prefer to stay in the background of things and just let it happen.

Some call these terms “submissive” and “dominant”. People often see them as an exchange of power.

Unless you love either role, playing each can feel risky, but there are certain zodiac signs who know exactly what they want in love, and that’s to give up their power and let another person take the lead.

Now, I’m not talking about in the bedroom. Rather, I’m talking about the everyday aspects of relationships – the nitty gritty stuff that makes you fall in and out of love with a person.

Astrology can tell us a lot about how people behave in relationships.

Taking into account their zodiac sign, you can assess how submissive or dominant zodiac women in relationships will be.

The following female astrological signs are the most likely to display submissive traits that demonstrate their desire to be obliging and amiable towards their partner.

Here are the 6 most powerful zodiac signs who love letting control go when they feel safe enough to be submissive in a relationship.

1. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

When it comes to relationships, Taurus women aren’t as dominant as other zodiac signs. They prefer to be indulged with the luxuries that relationships provide – both material and emotional pleasures.

Of course, this isn’t to say that Taurus women aren’t powerful, because they are. Instead, this means that they would rather be passive in the relationship and allow their partner to control the finer details such as where they would like to eat out or when they should leave for an event.

They’re incredibly patient, and OK with waiting for their partner.

2. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Every Gemini woman hates making decisions, especially in relationships. Therefore, you’ll rarely see a Gemini take a dominant role.

Geminis are adaptable and, sometimes, people-pleasers, so relying on their partners to make the important decisions is common for the twins.

In fact, being the submissive one in the relationship helps curb some of Gemini women’s nervousness and anxiety that’s inevitable for most twins in relationships (they worry about what others think of them).

However, Geminis have two personalities; they can be the dominant one on occasion.

3. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo women are fairly shy, which contributes to their desire to be the passive one in a relationship. A Virgo woman is highly critical of herself, so she may prefer to have her partner control different aspects of the relationship because she feels that he or she may be better than she is.

Though, Virgo women may be tempted to be submissive because they believe that is the best way to show how loyal and kind they can be. Regardless, a Virgo woman never oversteps her boundaries and prefers to stay on the sidelines.

4. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are focused on the idea of fairness, so they would like the relationship to allow a changing dynamic. Because Libra women are diplomatic, they will let their partner take the dominant role for a period of time and wait for their turn to be the dominant one in the relationship patiently.

While they may not always prefer the submissive role in the relationship, you can be sure that you’ll see Libra women willingly deferring to their partner in preparation for their turn to wear the pants in the relationship.

5. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Whereas other women may just enjoy the position of being the less-dominant one in the relationship, Pisces women like the idea of helping their partner feel empowered and loved. Letting him or her make important decisions and “run the day,” in a sense, may be a Pisces woman’s way of telling her partner that she loves him or her.

Because Pisces women are selfless and endlessly compassionate, they want to please their partner in any ways they can – emotionally and physically. This includes enabling a Pisces woman’s partner to take control of some aspects of the relationship (to an extent, of course).

      1. Dear Sara, being submissive is often the flip side of being aggressive, and Taurus’ are aggressive. Although sometimes they are passive/aggressive thinking that it’s “good manners.”
