Thus, they made clear divisions of the ways of love.
These theories are also used in philosophy, in psychology, in many scientific and social disciplines.
You must have heard of this division: Eros, Ludus, Mania, Storge, Pragma, Agape.
Each of the horoscope signs belongs to one of these groups. See for yourself whether you are totally a member of your sign, or your ascendant has a bigger influence on you.
Aries and Aquarius:
Eros is passionate love - passion, desire for a complete physical possession of a loved one.
Gemini and Sagittarius:
Ludus is love - a game, a game for your own pleasure. In such a love feelings are quite superficial, so cheating on both sides is allowed.
Libra and Taurus:
Storge is love-friendship, based on gentle, warm, reliable relationships.
Capricorn and Virgo:
Pragma (this is a combination of Ludus and Storge).
Feelings are not so deep, but there are elements of warmth and reliability. This is love out of gain. But it's not marriage to benefit from but from love. Such love easily gets under rational control.
As the name itself says, love is pragmatic, with elements of gain (it isn’t always material gain).
Perhaps you are satisfied with the conversation with that person, their personality, sexual values, and so on. It can even be love to replace the love with the one you really love. It's also a calculation.
Cancer and Pisces:
Agape (this is a combination of Eros and Storge). It is unselfish, unconditional love. (Agape - sacrificial love, selfless giving, the one who loves endlessly cares for the beloved).
Everything is here, passion and tenderness, and reliability, and unconditional devotion. This style is not seen so often.
But, if both partners love this way, we can only envy them. But, there is another problem here.
If suddenly a person who loves like this loses the object of their love, the meaning of life can be lost for them.
Scorpio and Leo:
Mania (this is a combination of Eros and Ludus).
This is irrational love- obsession. And it is necessarily followed by insecurity and dependence on the object of love. This is the case when in love they feel ‘like in a whirlpool’.
Such love ruins people's lives, destroys families. But sometimes, it can create new families. And people are happy.
Or the mania sooner or later turns into a different style or love disappears (there may remain hatred or indifference), or those who love like that die.
There are marriages with such relationships and feelings that last for years and decades. But in order to live like that and be happy, you have to give yourself completely to the other side, as well as they do to you.
