Dating Guide for the Zodiac

Every sign represents an element of either earth, fire, water, and air. Some elements go together better than others. Your birth chart will let you know what your dominating elements are, and this will reveal who you are most compatible with. Earth is the element you need to build a long term, committed romance, so if you lack earth in the chart, you can find it in your partner.

Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)

Aries doesn’t usually make romance their first priority. Aries will likely be hard to get and require some kind of a chase—they know their worth. They like being around people who make them feel good about themselves. Aries is adventurous and will be open-minded and free-spirited. They make things love is unspoken and rarely say, “I love you”, but they show love in their actions.

Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)

Taurus is looking for a real relationship. One they can feel at home with and grow with. Taurus is devoted, loyal, and loving. They bring the earthy essence into romance and know how to keep their partners satisfied. First, you have to break down Taurus’ walls and show them that you are a good person. Cheating here is unlikely (even if it can happen in any sign) as Taurus is very committed to the one they are with. Show them some heart and compassion and they’ll match you right back.

Gemini does know how to truly love and when they do they will be very protective of these people. Gemini needs someone who isn’t afraid of attention or asking for it. Gemini needs someone who can keep up with their active mind. Forming a mental connection is a must as this is where Gemini makes the final decisions in dating.

Leo is looking for true love, but Leo will find that love on their own. It’s like a lot of great people are after Leo (and they love the attention) but Leo is selective. They will know their love as soon as they meet them. Leo’s love is deep, consuming, and loyal. It’s important that if you are into one that you pay them attention and pay their needs attention. Compliment Leo. Remind Leo why they are great. Leo will be very giving in love, but they expect the same back. Otherwise, Leo will move on to people who are giving them attention.

Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22)

Virgo is looking for love but is in no rush. Virgo is looking for the perfect match, which means someone who matches their values. Virgo is very picky so they might go through many lovers before they meet the one. It’s not unusual for Virgo to settle down later in life. Virgo is strong on their own, but they eventually crave the unison of a relationship.

Libra can be a butterfly in love, flying back and forth to different lovers trying to figure it out. When they have fully decided upon you, you will know it.

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)

When Scorpio loves, they love with all their being. They say once a Scorpio loves you that they will love you forever. There is an intensity about their love. Scorpio is very private, secretive, and mysterious. A partner for them must be somebody they trust. Scorpio is capable of having sex with no strings attached, but Scorpio can’t and won’t do this forever.

As “The Archer” of the zodiac, Sagittarius defiantly seeks out their conquests and shoots well. Sagittarius is very charming and good at getting what they want. At the end of the day, they want passionate, adventurous love. They don’t want routine, otherwise, they will get bored and move on. Sagittarius needs thrill in their life. They want a partner they can explore with.

Aquarius (January 20-Febuary 18)

Aquarius is also capable of hooking up without emotions so don’t get carried away too quickly because this sign usually finds love later in life. They can easily see more than one person at a time and they can also casually date. sometimes they have what I call “A Jennifer Aniston Complex” where they date and date, and don’t find the right one until much later. Sometimes Aquarius is with someone seriously only to realize they want to be serious with someone else. When Aquarius does get serious, they make for great, exciting, smart partners. They may or may not be rushing to the alter—that all depends on the Aquarius in question.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces is the type to get “casual dating” twisted as they might fall for everyone that they meet and suffer from rose-colored glasses syndrome. Pisces wants that true, fairytale love. They’ve dreamt about it and cannot wait for it because they have so much love to give. Pisces can be submissive so a more dominant partner could be in order. Pisces is motivated by their partner and with the right person, Pisces will make all sorts of changes.
