Every zodiac sign has a ruling planet or two, which adds a dimension to its qualities. In this set of zodiac posts, we dive into each sign’s tendencies in love & relationships.
ARIES IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
+ DOES NOT PLAY GAMES AND KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT
+ RELATIVELY AGGRESSIVE & DOMINEERING
+ LOOKS FOR A CONFIDENT & EQUALLY FIESTY LOVER
+ NOT AFRAID TO TELL YOU HOW THEY FEEL
+ LOVES LITTLE COMPLIMENTS TO MAKE THEM FEEL IMPORTANT
+ CAN NEVER BE TAMED, SO DON’T EVEN TRY
When it comes to love and relationships, Aries value transparency because they do not play games and know exactly what they want. They can be relatively aggressive and domineering partners, but in a genuine manner which is hard to find fault with. They don’t want weak partners and are attracted to people that can challenge them to match and maintain the same energy they bring to the table – a confident and equally fiesty lover.
Aries are not afraid to tell you how they feel, whether it be when they are jealous or bored, so don’t be surprised when they take the direct approach to confrontation. Always keep them on their toes with excitement and adventure, surprise them with little compliments to make them feel important, and NEVER try to tame them. As long as there’s plenty of spice and excitement, the relationship will be strong and long lasting.
TAURUS IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
+ THE MOST SENSUAL SIGN. CONNECTS BEST VIA PHYSICAL SENSATIONS
+ THE WAY TO THEIR HEART IS THROUGH THEIR STOMACH
+ LOOKS FOR SOMEONE WHO IS LOYAL & TRUSTWORTHY
+ BEST CUDDLE BUDDIE
+ DOES NOT LIKE TO BUDGE. ONCE THEY’VE MADE UP THEIR MINDS, IT’S SET
+ LIKES TO TAKE THEIR SWEET ASS TIME BEFORE TRULY COMMITTING
When it comes to love and relationships, Taurus value security and stability. A Taurus love requires patience. They usually take their time declaring their love and needs to make sure that their feelings and the other person’s feelings are strong enough before taking the next step.
They’re looking for trustworthy people who are loyal and can understand their emotions. Being the most sensual sign in all of the Zodiac, Taurus loves to use their senses of touch, smell, and taste to get pleasure, whether through food or physical sensation. They possess a keen eye for aesthetics and are highly attracted to someone who’s very well-put-together.
Taurus strongly dislikes change. Although they may be slow to make up their mind, once they make a decision they are fixed and it will be difficult to change the path they have chosen. They’re also not the most demonstrative sign when it comes to love. You probably won’t receive declarations of love through flowers and small gifts, but more with physical expressions like hugs or holding hands.
GEMINI IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
+ NATURALLY FLIRTATIOUS, DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO STOP BEING FRIENDLY TO PEOPLE BC THEY DO NOT TOLERATE POSSESSIVE PARTNERS

+ IF YOU’RE NOT CUTTING IT, THEN … THANK YOU, NEXT
When it comes to love and relationships, Geminis value good listeners and conversationalists. Most of their most promising relationships are likely to emerge naturally from among their wide circle of friendships. The Gemini is looking for someone who can keep up with their lifestyle and adjust accordingly. They move and talk a mile a minute and are constantly on the go.
Be sure to remember that a Gemini will not be quick to commit, as this means being tied-down and losing much needed freedom. You’ll need to be interesting enough to them to hold their attention and always remember to communicate. Geminis want honest and open communication in relationships. They don’t like secrets, are impressed with intelligence, and extremely adventurous. Once they find the right person, life will take on a new experience mentally entertaining the Gemini beyond measure.
Be prepared to meet lots of new people and do not expect them to stop being friendly with other people because it’s in their nature to be friendly and they can get quickly tired of possessive partners. Also, don’t be surprised if there’s occasional verbal sparring followed by intense making up because they hate being bored and like to spice it up every once in a while.
CANCER IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS

They’re prone to giving their all with their sensitive and caring nature once they are convinced that you’re down for them. Cancerians are looking for someone that they can trust to let their walls down. Someone who is able to tend to their emotional needs and most of all loyal to them.
Emotional security is extremely important for a Cancer. They aspire to feel safe and secure in all areas of life, especially in their home. When they get depressed or upset for any reason, they seek retreat within the emotionally safe environment they have built for themselves – similar to a hermit crab.
The most difficult aspect of dating a Cancer is getting through their tough exterior. They rarely take the direct approach, so you’ll need to make them feel comfortable enough to share their deep feelings. A slow, steady, and consistent pace is vital, as they will need to trust you completely before they let their guards down and make sure to be accountable and create equality in the relationship for it to thrive.

When it comes to love and relationships, Leos value the concept of a “power couple” and think of their partners as an extension of their self. They want an equal and have a need to be proud of the person they are with.
Despite their bold strength and extremely forward and self-assertive identity, Leos are very sensitive and need nurturing to truly blossom. A Leo needs to feel special and unique through lots of love and admiration from their partner. They require a lot of attention and like to feel that they’re the center of your world. They also need their relationships to be exciting at all times, so don’t let things get too comfortable. Keep it passionate and interesting.
This sign enjoys the beauty around them and will appreciate the beauty you bring to their life. They notice the little things and will always reciprocate. Leos will go above and beyond to make their loved one happy and also expect this in return. Once you’ve been loved by a Leo it is unlikely you will ever forget the experience.
VIRGO IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
+ THEY HATE MIND GAMES, SO BE STRAIGHT UP
+ ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
+ WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH LIKE NO OTHER
+ ALWAYS PUTS OTHERS BEFORE THEMSELVES
+ NEEDS SPACE TO DO THEIR OWN THING
+ MOST LIKEY TO HAVE A CHECKLIST OF HIGH FUCKING STANDARDS THAT ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO MEET, SO GOOD LUCK
When it comes to love and relationships, Virgos value routine and are notoriously judgmental. Virgos can be very picky and will take time to find a partner because of their high standards and perfectionist mindset. However, once Virgos give their heart, they give everything. They put everyone else before themselves and are always trying to improve or make a situation better. They seek adventure and are very charming with clever jokes. Virgo looks for a partner who can encourage their wild side, but a good work ethic is equally attractive.
Virgos command honesty from their partner and hate mind games, so they expect you to say what you mean and mean what you say, just as they do. They have no problem ranting about their feelings, good or bad, due to their passionate nature. Usually by the time you hear what’s bothering them, it can come out in an explosive way because they’ve been bottling it up for so long, so give them a safe space to let them say their peace and then help them move forward.
They’re also super sociable and love to be around people, but are also fiercely independent and like to do things on their own. They need an equal balance of time with you and time alone, so be sure to give them the freedom they need to do their own thing.
LIBRA IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
+ MASTERS AT SEDUCTION ONCE THEY’VE SET THEIR EYES ON YOU
+ THEY JUST LOVE, LOVE
+ DRAWN TO PEOPLE WHO PLAY HARD TO GET
+ LOVES SPONTANEITY TO KEEP THEM ON THEIR TOES
+ DOES NOT TOLERATE INSECURE PARTNERS
+ AVOIDS CONFLICT AT ALL COSTS, BUT DAMN GOOD AT ARGUING
When it comes to love and relationships, Libras values peace and harmony. They don’t like to be alone and are happiest when functioning in a union and give their all to their partner, doing everything in their power to please them. They’re romantic, soft-hearted, and just love, love. Libra is very loyal when committed and will stand by your side no matter what.
Because of their indecisiveness and crave for partnership, they may rush into an emotional relationship before they’re ready for it and find themselves unable to get out of it because they don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings. They also tend to avoid conflict at all costs, but are damn good are arguing their point.
Libras are drawn to people who play hard to get and that can turn them on not only physically, but mentally. You need to be able to hold their attention and have an equally high self-confidence to not be bothered by their friendliness to everyone they encounter. It impresses them when you’re independent, can make them laugh, and can play up your natural beauty.
It’s important for Libra to become an equal partner and realize that they aren’t solely responsible for the other person’s happiness – and vice versa. Try to be spontaneous with Libra and create situations where there’s no way for them to be indecisive and always make them feel attractive and desired.

+ SOUL CONNECTIONS ARE PRECIOUS + DEMANDS HONESTY, WILL SETTLE FOR NO LESS
+ IF THEY WANT YOU, THEY’LL HAVE YOU
+ LOOKS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN STAND CONFIDENTLY ON THEIR OWN, GIVING THEM FREEDOM TO THRIVE
+ INSTINCTS OVER EVERYTHING
+ ONE OF A KIND ENERGY THAT’S HIGH-KEY JEALOUS & POSSESSIVE, BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEIR LOVE FOR YOU IS SO INTENSE
When it comes to love and relationships, Scorpios values honesty and passionate energy. The ideal relationship for a Scorpio is one that goes the distance emotionally, spiritually, and sexually. Scorpios are driven by the desire to lose themselves fully with their partner and it’s not easy to be deemed worthy. If they want you, they’ll use their magnetism to pull you near.
They are all about deep soul-diving and allured by intense conversation and a genuine personality. Always listen to them attentively, be loyal and faithful, and never lie to a Scorpio, as they will call you out – real quick. They look for people that can stand confidently on their own sometimes, giving them freedom to thrive. They are in fact pretty sensitive beings, even if they don’t show it on the outside, so if they open up to you then you know you’ve made the cut.
Beware of Scorpios jealous and possessive tendencies. Scorpios love so deeply and are highly sensitive to betrayal. They’re not so quick to forgive once their sensitive feelings have been compromised. This sign needs someone who can hold their ground and keep them guessing because Scorpios are never boring and always in seek of a good mystery.

Try to see their point of view and when all else fails, just suck it up and say sorry, even if it’s not your fault because there’s no way in Hell they’re going to be the ones to take the blame.

+ LOOKS FOR SOMEONE WHO WILL SUPPORT THEIR GOALS AND DREAMS
+ VERY CAREFUL WITH THEIR EMOTIONS & DON’T JUST THROW THEMSELVES AT ANYBODY
+ DOESN’T WANT TO SHARE & WANTS YOU ALL TO THEMSELVES
When it comes to love and relationships, Capricorns value serious commitment and are in it for the long haul, however many Capricorns choose to delay settling into a permanent relationship until they’ve got where they want to get professionally. They devote most of their youth to their careers and once they have succeeded, then they devote themselves toward love and family, so you must remain patient with them.
Although their serious self-presentation can seem cold and standoffish at first, they’re actually pretty playful and wild behind closed doors. They’re looking for someone that they can trust and open up to. Someone who can encourage them and push them forward, especially during times of depression. They also need to feel secure that their loved ones are loyal to them and sure that they have a partner that they can depend on.

They’re not looking for just lovers, but best friends too. They’re drawn to others that are different and someone to figure out – a mysterious type. Aquarians are very intellectual and love a good discussion, so be prepared for many long talks and a slow easing into partnership.
Aquarians are not always aware of their magnetic charm, so they tend to lead people on without even knowing. But try to remember that they’re naturally highly social creatures and only close and intimate with a limited amount of people. They don’t worry too much about other’s opinions and are very self-assured of their relationships. Always give them their space when they ask for it, keep things light and stimulating, and expect to be treated with a lot of generosity.

They crave a deep emotional connection as they search for their soulmate. Pisces want partners who share their curiosity of what’s more than just the physical world and expect a lot of affection and care. Pisces are extremely compassionate, avoid arguments, and very intuitive – so don’t even try to fool them.
When loving a Pisces, be gentle and honest with them. This sign is very sensitive and tends to be selfless by putting their partners needs above their own, so their loyalty and devotion should be honored and cherished. Pisces have the ability to change their identity according to their surroundings, which can sometimes be destructive. Encourage independence to your Pisces partner and make them feel safe as they face the real world.
Pisces live in a world of dream and romance, so never fall short in the romance department because it is so important to them. Think outside the box when attracting a Pisces, as they are highly in tune with their creative expression and you are no exception to that. Pisces flow back and forth like water, sometimes hot and sometimes cold, and struggle with having conflicting emotions being pulled in both directions. Don’t take it personally. They know how to go with the flow and will eventually come back to you. Try your best to make sure to respect their need to escape once in a while for a bit of contemplation.
