Toxic relationships get a lot of buzz these days, and it's hard to know what exactly causes them. It can be one troubled person who brings negativity to the relationship, meeting the right person at the wrong time, or a combination of those two circumstances. There's no exact science, but the 5 most toxic zodiac pairings might have the stars to blame for their relationship troubles.
Your relationship isn't necessarily doomed to fail because of you or your partner's zodiac sign, but your astrological chart can stack the odds against you. Some zodiac pairings tend to have immature relationships, while other signs tend to get bored in relationships quickly. And when two vastly different signs meet, they can clash in such a way that it's draining or harmful to both of them, leading to dissatisfaction for everyone. A toxic relationship can manifest in all kinds of ways, from one party being overly controlling to gaslighting, but it will definitely make you unhappy and feel unsustainable.
So read on to learn more about the most toxic zodiac pairings, but keep in mind that if you and your partner's astrological combo matches any of these couples, you could still very well have a healthy relationship. As professional astrologer Donna Stellhorn puts it, "your astrology chart is not your destiny. It's a map that shows you challenges and opportunities, limitations and talents. It guides you so you can avoid the pitfalls and it helps you find the quickest, easiest way to your goal." The stars don't know you better than you know yourself. (Usually.)
