One of the most important keys to being in a successful relationship is being with the right partner. But when you find yourself falling for the same types of people and your relationships all end up the same way, it may be bigger issue than you think. In fact, a 2019 University of Toronto study found that most people do have a type when it comes to dating. Even if you have the intentions to date outside of that type, some people will naturally gravitate towards people who are similar to their exes. So some people are just wired that way, and there is an astrological reason behind it.
To get to the astrological heart of any issue, astrologer Beth McDonald tells Bustle, there are different things to take into consideration. For instance, your planets, signs, asteroids, important chart points (the rising sign, the mid-heaven, the north node, and the south node), and aspects (the geometric relationships between all of these planets as they lay in the circle of the chart), all play a role in the type of people you're attracted to and attract.
"These are huge, with a capital H," McDonald says. "Besides this, you often need to look at other charts like the transits, the solar return, the progressed chart, sometimes even Astrolocality. Love is no different from any other issue — it’s complicated."
If you've ever wondered why you can't stop falling for the same types of people, astrologers will look at the following things to find the reason why.
