How Each Zodiac Sign Shows Love and Affection

If you have ever wondered whether or not your partner or any of your previous partners have truly shown you love and affection, just realize that you are with them – or you were with them in the first place because they wanted you to have a piece of their heart.  

Perhaps some of them had an unusual way of showing love and affection, and maybe that is the case or not. That depends on their sun sign (or their moon or rising sign could have an influence as well). Let’s now find out how each of the signs shows love and affection.

Aries – Expect to Be Challenged by Playing a Sport

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign which represents action, passion, and energy. And those who have this sun sign show affection and love by challenging their special ones by telling them to play a sport and to beat them at it. They want to do it so while they are competing with the ones who they really like, they will have the opportunity to flirt with them in subtle ways. And these games end up leading up to heated moments.

Taurus – Giving a Massage

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that represents stability, loyalty, and a love for the material which includes food. And when a Taurean is showing affection, they tend to get physical but in a gentle way. They can either give hugs or massages which they love to give the most. However, that is always going to be up to their lover. And the Taurus will be gentle with it as well no matter what because they like it that way as well.

Gemini – Listening and Teasing in a Gentle Way

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign which represents communication, versatility, and movement. And because Geminis prefer to talk more than they prefer to listen, if the Gemini is listening to what you have to say, then that is a sign of love and affection. And another thing is that expect to get into deep conversations as well and you will be listened to.

Additionally, since the Gemini is all about communication, expect to be teased but in a gentle and loving way. That is a sure sign that the Gemini is showing love!

Cancer – Taking Care of the One They Love

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents nurturing, home, family, and emotions. And it is very easy to know when a Cancerian is showing love and affection. They do so by doing it in many ways. They will make you feel very special as they will take care of you in any way imaginable.

You will be getting a foot or shoulder massage, be cooked a delicious meal, and your comfort will be the top priority for the Cancerian. In fact, you will be quite pampered.

Leo – Showering with Gifts and Being Thoughtful

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that represents playfulness, youth, creativity, and being in the spotlight. Leos are thought to be quite self-centered for that reason, however, when Leo is showing love and affection, they can be quite thoughtful. They will remember what your favorite restaurant is and surprise you by taking you there. They also will shower you with gifts and will like to surprise you with it as well. Having a Leo showing you love and affection will make you feel quite lucky.

Virgo – At Your Service

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that represents work, service, health, and analyses. In fact, Virgo is not known to be a warm sign and those who have this sun sign are not overly demonstrative in a warm way when they show love and affection. However, what they do instead is will always be there when you need them.

If you need something fixed, the Virgo will be there to fix whatever it is for you in no time. If you need to go to the airport in the middle of the night, guess who will take you there without any hesitation. That is how you know the Virgo is showing love and affection.

Libra – Flirting is Obvious

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that represents beauty, balance, and fairness. Libra is a social sign and is often appearing enduring and affectionate even to their friends. However, the way to know if a Libra is showing love or affection towards you is that they are making their flirting obvious.

If they are sending you lovey-dovey texts, and making up cute nicknames for you, or leaving you love notes randomly, that is how a Libra is showing their love and affection towards the one who they really do love!

Scorpio – Thoughtfulness, Sensitivity, and Intimacy

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents passion, extremes, and intensity. And Scorpios are extremely sensitive even though they don’t show it. However, when they are showing love and affection towards you, they will be very sensitive to you and be very thoughtful as well. They also have an excellent memory which is good and bad as their good memory is the reason they hold grudges.

However, they will remember a movie that you said you love just one time a long time ago and will surprise you by getting you a DVD of that particular movie that you said you loved, only the one time. And Scorpios love to be physically intimate as well and will also show love even by giving a massage by respecting what their lover wants.

Sagittarius – Surprised Parties and Taking You on Trips

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that represents fun, optimism, adventure, travel, and exploration. And Sagittarians who are in love will show it in fun ways. Firstly, they will always remember your birthday or any special day and throw a surprise party or take you out on a surprise day trip with good food.

They will also want to take you on their excursions because they want to travel with those who they care about very deeply. In other words, they want to have a lot of fun with the ones they love.

Capricorn – Thoughtful and Considerate

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that represents business, being reserved, organization, and sophistication. Capricorns can be seen as cold and are not quick to show affection. However, if the Capricorn is in love with you, then they will be extremely thoughtful and put your needs ahead of theirs. They will also make dinner reservations to somewhere sophisticated because that what the Capricorn likes. Anything that is sophisticated.

Aquarius – Includes You into Their World

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that represents individuality, friendliness, humanitarianism, uniqueness, and nonconformity. That means the Aquarius that is in love will show their affection in their own unique way as they are not seen as being overly affectionate. They will invite you into their world, which means if they enjoy watching an unusual Sci-Fi film, then expect them to invite you over to watch it with them.

Or if the Aquarius enjoys taking a hike in an unusual area, expect to be invited along. Because that is how the Aquarius shows affection.

Pisces – Showers You with Love and Affection

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents imagination, art, dreaminess, and intuition. This sign is highly affectionate as it is and there will be no mistake when it comes to you wondering if the Piscean is in love. That is because they shower the ones who they love in any imaginable way! They will write songs about you, they will be physically affectionate, and they will even take you out wherever you want to go. It is very obvious with the Pisces where you stand!

When you think about how your partner shows love and affection and knowing their sun sign (or their moon or rising sign), does this resonate with you? Or do you see yourself showing affection in these ways as well? Why not share any of what you are comfortable with sharing.
