Astrology can tell us a lot of things about what we need in our love lives, so read on to find out what your zodiac sign reveals about your relationships.
Aries (March 21–April 20)
Aries are ruled by Mars, so this kind of gives you a sense of the Aries attitude. They stop at nothing to get what they want, and are therefore the ultimate crusaders. In their love lives, an Aries likes to take charge and call the shots — they’re born action-takers. They also happen to be extremely physical. And when they feel hurt or challenged, they aren’t going to brood over it. The Aries’ short temper is evidenced by the fact that they tend to move on quickly.
Taurus (April 21–May 20)
Ruled by Venus, romance is a perfect fit for Taureans. These highly sensual Earth signs are no strangers to luxury. Taureans are known to be steadfast, grounded, and loyal partners. But before you can reap the benefits of a Taurus relationship, you must first wine and dine these earth signs like there’s no tomorrow. Taurus lives for love and is built for commitment, which can (and should) be balanced by an energetic partner who appreciates Taurus’ romantic nature.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
When a Gemini talks, you’ll listen. Gemini individuals are born speakers, their speech is impeccable, they’ll tell you an hour-long story and you’ll listen to it without a moment’s boredom. There is never a dull moment with fun and flirty Gemini. For Geminis, sociable settings are the bread and butter for any date—i.e. you’d rather hang out at a bar then go to a movie or a museum. As for the bedroom, your curiosity and love of gab translates quite well—yep, dirty talk and invention is the name of the game.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
The only sign ruled by the moon, Cancer is one of the most misunderstood signs because their moodiness oscillates between being extremely sweet and, well, terrifying. If you’re fortunate enough to earn a Cancer’s confidence, these water signs are highly intuitive, nurturing, and generous creatures who love cohabitating, creating, and dreaming.Cancers aren’t always comfortable communicating their inner desires or feelings, especially if they haven’t established trust with a partner.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
The sign of the lion likes to be noticed and usually is. Leos as enthusiastic people who love to be the center of attention. You likely have an easier time making the first move than the rest of your gal pals, and guys definitely notice your confidence. When you do land in a relationship, though, be sure not to let that self-assurance become overbearing; your flair for the dramatic can make lovers’ spats soap-opera-worthy. Leos don’t mind a little drama in their relationships.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Virgo has a reputation for reliability, practicality, and flexibility. Natural perfectionists, Virgos take pride in everything they do, so they are diligent in making sure their partner is happy in the relationship. ou don’t expect too much, which means your relationships are generally easygoing. You’re happy with the simple things in life. Here’s the thing many people don’t get about your sign–while reserved and practical on the outside, once you’re *in love* your wild side shines, and you’ll have a goodie drawer full of items that will be quite fun in the bedroom.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Libras are probably the most romantic sign of the zodiac, and they adore being in relationships. Libra ladies make great girlfriends and wives, partly because they love relationships so much. You have a knack for putting others at ease and making them feel special, so you’ll need to make sure that you don’t lead others on if there’s no spark. But when you find someone who’s compatible, you’re 100% devoted.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Sexy and mysterious, Scorpios are intense in love. It takes time for Scorpios to feel comfortable enough letting a partner in and showing vulnerability. Lusty, passionate Scorpio knows how to dig beneath the surface. Scorpions, you are intense when it comes to dating. You’re not one for easy hookups or using an app (well, not as a first resort, at least). You love meeting people who understand your ever-changing moods and nature, and can play off of them. You prefer to be in control of any romantic relationship, including in the bedroom—yep, you take the reigns. But this kind of aggressiveness is exciting for the right partner—they never know what to expect from you.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Sagittarius, the archer, is not necessarily the most committal sign, but they are intellectual powerhouses, and are always curious to meet new people and exploring new cultures. Sagittariuses propel their arrows to far-off places and travel incredible distances just to satisfy their daring curiosities. They love exploration, storytelling, and philosophy. Like stated, you love new experiences—and that translates to the bedroom as well. You’re completely unafraid to try something new and your openness to explore is completely exhilarating for many. Just make sure you pick the right person who is along for the ride.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Capricorn is all about financial and emotional stability. However, when a Capricorn thinks someone is worth it, he or she will prioritize, building a healthy, long-lasting, and worthwhile relationship. They achieve success through their serious, matter-of-fact approach to life, and they also don’t like to waste time on superfluous relationships. That means if a Capricorn expresses interest, they really like you. Your friends might call you picky, but you just know what you want and refuse to settle for less. In the bedroom, you take charge, making sure you figure out exactly what your partner wants. Your hardworking that way.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Aquarians are free spirits and hate to be tied down. When it comes to romance, these lovers need to be given their space. You’re not one for wearing your heart on your sleeve, and while that works when you want to send off a mysterious vibe, it can also make you come off as a bit cold. When it comes to dating, you tend to start as friends first and will remain friends even if the romantic relationship doesn’t last. When it comes to sex, you’re not one for any type of rules. If you feel like sleeping with your date, you’ll do it. When you find a partner who can get you to connect on an emotional level, while also satisfying your sexual prowess, you’ll be smitten.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Pisces is a true romantic, emotionally sensitive who wears their heart on their sleeve. Pisces, you have an enormous heart. You love to love and you don’t care who knows it. But the dreamy sign is prone to just that—dreams. It’s oftentimes hard for you to make a move. You’re style of dating is often submissive at first, letting others take the lead. But later on, that can change. Because of your nurturing nature, you tend to respond well to what your partner needs in any environment. And once you find your perfectly in-tune match, you’ll be happily in love for a long time.
