Oh, what a difference a chromosome can make! We all know that people, regardless of gender, are likely to bear some (or all!) of the most common traits associated with their sun sign. However, in the realm of astrological love and compatibility, we tend to believe that certain sign combinations hold more promise than others.
For the most part, this is true. But, did you know that the astrological traits are affected by gender? Astrologically speaking, from attraction and interaction to reaction, men and women are as different as their anatomy.
Now let’s take a look at the differences between men and women by sign – when it comes to attracting and interacting in love. Check out each zodiac sign’s best and worst sides in love!
The Aries Female is an energetic, flirtatious force of nature who wants to be swept off her feet and cherished, but will step on your toes the minute she feels she is being smothered. She is most attracted to good looking, successful lovers who are capable of boosting her not-insignificant self-esteem. If you can’t keep up (or lose!) her interest, she will quickly leave you behind in a cloud of dust, having traded you in for a pricier, showier model. If you have won the heart of an Aries woman, be prepared that she can be jealous, competitive, and downright cruel! On the flip side, she is capable of complete loyalty and will demand that you give her the same.
The Aries Male is a dynamic go-getter who wants to be overwhelmed by passion and emotion, and cannot stand for things to become complacent or routine. He likes his partners to be powerful and motivated, beautiful, and the sexual equivalent of a tornado. His hair-triggered anger and self-righteous attitude can take some getting used to, but he does cool down as quickly as he heats up. Boredom is the quickest way to make him stray, but that is only if you’ve proven exciting enough to get a commitment out of him in the first place.
The Taurus Female is as strong of heart as she is of mind. She tends to hide her own vulnerabilities, usually by immersing herself more deeply into nurturing those she loves. She is drawn to partners who are her equal (or better!) on the material plane – ones that offer up some type of guarantee for the future, like a wedding ring. She most likely will appear prim-and-proper out in public, but can be quite the wild child behind closed doors. She is as stubborn as she is loving, and finds it easy to get stuck in her ways. The concept of give-and-take sometimes passes her by, and she can be possessive to the point of oppression.
The Taurus Male is a mountain of integrity and strength, loyal and loving. He has a habit of seeing things as either black or white, so while he may be discussing, you may be arguing in an attempt to get him to change his views. He expects the same level of loyalty that he gives, and will toss a flirty lover to the curb for flirting with anyone other than him – his piles of erotica don’t count as an indiscretion from his viewpoint. Anything he may be lacking in an adventuresome spirit sexually, is made up for by his sexual appetite.
The Gemini Woman is witty, charming, intelligent, and almost always at least ten minutes late. She is more attracted to a high IQ than any physical trait. She enjoys candlelight, but romance can bloom in broad daylight if the conversation is scintillating enough. This is not a woman adept at expressing her innermost feelings, and is likely to crack a joke until the serious moment passes. She wants security and stability in love, and a lover who is actually going to understand her, or at least treat her warmly when they don’t.
The Gemini Male is an introverted extravert. Charisma, humor, and intellect may be the image he projects, but no matter how close you get – you can never be quite certain what is on his mind. He wants a partner who shows just enough emotion to validate that he is awesome, but not too much emotion that it will become complicated. He is seriously committed to remaining uncommitted, unless he stumbles across a super-achiever who can keep up with the conversation, reach their own goals without his assistance, and be packed and ready to go on an adventure at the drop of a dime. That, in his mind, is an amore worth considering.
The Cancer Female is an alluring beauty, whose gentleness and caring nature tends to be welcomed in any crowd. She believes that love is the secret to life, and the more dreamy and romantic, the better. Sentimentality is a way of life. She is demure and erotic, and wants a lover who will commit, commit, commit! Her moods swings can be quite the challenge, and she can throw an Oscar-worthy tantrum when she doesn’t get her way. When this feminine seductress snares her partner, her attention and affection makes them want to stay.
The Cancer Male is a romantic’s dream, who plays the part of courtier well. He is honest and devoted, and when his heart melts, his every breath is drawn in to be with the one that he loves. He is very protective and can be equally as possessive, often becoming jealous of time spent with friends, relatives, or even the family dog. He wants a partner who swoons at the sight of him, is part mind-reader, (his lover is supposed to intuitively know why he is sulking) and who will find joy simply in being the center of his world.
The Leo Woman tends to be successful, self-assured, and at times more than a little flamboyant – but no more so than a queen has a right to be. She is attracted to attractive, adventurous lovers who will share the stage with her – as long as they don’t try and steal the spotlight! Her sexual prowess can keep you smiling with her adventuresome spirit, but please don’t ask her to get kinky. She will not live with tyranny – even though she is as likely as any man to flawlessly play the role of the tyrant. Leo women know that they deserve the best of everything, and aren’t afraid to sample many kinds of varieties when on the prowl for true love.
The Leo Male is strong and affectionate, with a magnetic personality filled with fun and good cheer. He tends to be very generous, and successful enough to recover from his sprees without skipping a beat. He is attracted to beauty in all forms of lovers, specifically the ones who are adept at adoring him. In bed, the King of Beasts will live up to the title, but before you’re done purring, he’s probably raiding the fridge or making a sandwich. This man will give away his heart fully and with great ease, but from time to time he is likely to forget with whom he left it!
The Virgo Female really is filled with purity and virtue, but also knows how to cut loose and have a good time – when she’s not over-analyzing the smallest aspects of life. This lady is always in control – at least of herself. In her world, there is a time, place, and order to everything – and her love and trust must be earned or won. She is most attracted to neat and tidy lovers whose philosophical intellect can challenge her own. She is cautious with her emotions, but when she chooses to release her passion, she removes the virginal misconception with the subtlety of a raging forest fire. This is a supersensitive woman with many facets of character, who constantly strives for perfection in herself, life and love.
The Virgo Male is the industrious sort who finds work to be oddly exciting. He’s the one who is just as likely to softly grin caressing the finish of his new file cabinet the way others would the curve of a lover’s hip. Always searching for ways to improve things, he tends to be attracted to people who need his help or guidance in some way, but they must also be intelligent and competent in their own right. He tends to look at love with the same zest and vigor as any other work to be done. In other words, love is meant to be shaped into perfect harmony (well, almost perfect!). He is selfish and selfless, and can freeze an active volcano or melt the polar ice caps, depending on the day. But with a partner who loves him compassionately, his devotion grows every day.
The Libra Female is warm and womanly… artistic and elegant. She can come home from work and whip out an intimate dinner for 20 that rivals any gala. She can find something attractive in every person, place, or thing – and still believes that Prince Charming will come riding into her life on a snow-white steed. Until they show up, any lover who shows interest and has even a liberal understanding of romance is definitely worth consideration, especially if they are packaged into a hot body. A good woman, she tries to anticipate her lover’s needs, sometimes forgetting that air and personal space are amongst them. The greatest challenge for the Libra Female is realizing that a clinging vine tends to strangle, but when she’s content with herself alone in life, she is the most desirable flower.
The Libra Male is the life of the party, the kind of guy you just want to be around. Strong of mind, body, character and success, he tends to have a playboy past and is likely to throw over the latest bubble-headed beauty for a quiet, loyal, sweetheart who may turn a few less heads (but can intellectually hold their ground). For all that he is, and all that he has achieved, he tends to have abandonment issues that can run fairly deep. His deepest desire is to complete himself with the one he loves, and if it takes a hundred tries before they get it right – he’ll just keep on trying!
The Scorpio Female is an unwinding mystery, sometimes even to herself. She is strong yet soft, kind, compassionate, intuitive, alluring and shy. She can rise to any challenge, claim victory without rubbing it in, and love so deeply that it scares herself. Sexually, there are no boundaries, no limits to the games she’ll play (sex is power!) but she’s very selective with the few that can experience her feminine wiles. She is attracted to a partner who is intelligent as well as wise, attractive and enigmatic. While the Scorpio female can be quite possessive, she prefers that her freedoms be unrestrained. The person who falls for Ms. Scorpio’s embrace will never be the same. Once you know the rules, you understand it is her game.
The Scorpio Male tends to be physically alluring and intellectually frustrating. He always knows the answer before he asks the question, he just wants to see how you’ll respond. His sexuality can excite the coldest, stillest waters of any pond, and yet sex is not the mission with the ones with whom he shares his charm. He is attracted to partners who are independent but loyal, intelligent, but not too inquisitive. Even the most committed Scorpio man has a way of making a lover wonder. He is pride and mystery, and if he doesn’t choose to drive you mad with silence and intrigue, he is likely to sweep you just far enough off your feet that you’ll be holding on for life – even after he’s long gone.
The Sagittarius Female can light up a room, simply by stepping in to it. Charming, witty, outgoing, and hilariously fun, this woman may not be sure in what direction her life is going, but she will make the most of scenery along the way! She is independent and impulsive, and her idea of romance is a week-long adventure – but you can bring champagne and roses if you want to. She is attracted to active, intelligent, and optimistic lovers who thrive as much as she does venturing into the unknown. She can make an insult sound like a compliment, and to her, “apology” is some foreign and undiscovered word. You may not know where the Sagittarius female is going, but fun and chaos will mark where she’s been.
The Sagittarius Male is charming enough to teach a snake to samba, and equally as intriguing to be around. He is upbeat and ingenious, and some may say even a bit unorthodox, but definitely someone you like to be around. Lovers tend to overwhelm him, (they don’t understand that a commitment has a lifespan of about two weeks) but he’ll happily thrill you with humor and romance as long as it’s still a chase. The person he catches tends to quickly be re-released into the dating wild. The Sagittarius man is like an over-grown boy, who will claim to be invincible, right up until he’s put in his grave.
The Capricorn Female is an energetic workaholic who is always on the move. This accomplished femme fatale is one of the most kind-hearted, loyal, and caring pessimists that you could ever meet. Her sense of self-worth is what makes her strive tirelessly for success, but it also is what allows her to fall for some pretty superficial romantic situations. While she wants a self-sufficient, warm and caring partner – she often falls prey to false hopes and promises formed by attractive lips. She is a sensitive creature whose feelings can easily be hurt, but has a problem recognizing that her own finesse is often delivered with the gentleness of a 10 pound sledgehammer at full swing. Logic, emotion, and drama rule and fuel her world, but being on her “good side” is a very good place to be, because while she will forgive – she is less likely to let you forget.
The Capricorn Male exudes strength and endurance, professionally as well as in the bedroom. He tends to be quite accomplished, and looks for attractive partners who can hold a conversation but pale in comparison with his own intelligence. With an agreeable lover, he can spend less energy controlling and manipulating, which frees his time to shower them with the finer things in life, because they have met his expectations and deserve to be pampered and rewarded.
The Aquarius Female is a dreamy, analytical, friendly person, who either enchants or scares those she meets. At work or play, there is a calm intensity about her that can endear or overwhelm, but never fails to make an impression. She is most attracted to lovers of a like-mind, those who value honesty, humanity, the world, and all the life forms in it. One of the best listeners out there, Ms. Aquarius often fails to ask for what she wants or needs, because she’ll just assume she won’t get it. Marriage is security, and she has idealistic views of both.
The Aquarius Male has the mind of an inventor and the intellect and vocabulary of the most esteemed professor. All things new and developmental exist to be pondered and explored, his thirst and ability to absorb knowledge and theory is profound. He tends to appear serene and collected, at times eccentric or standoffish, but this is merely the wrapper for a humane and kind soul. He is most attracted to freedom loving partners who have kind hearts and empathetic souls. While life is but a playground for the Aquarius male, his loyalty and devotion to his chosen one hinges on the respect of his ideals and space – without fail.
The Pisces Female is usually a soft-spoken, tender-hearted woman “in love with love” and romance. She has the soul and vision of an artist whose temperament is more prone to tears than tantrums. She has a vital and sensual sense of humor, and her charisma is quite beguiling. Because she believes in romantic love, she often gravitates toward the playboy, often not noticing the stability offered by a less-fairytale type of lover. She believes there is good in all, but often fails to recognize her own inner strength. The female Pisces who is begging to be rescued is the one most likely to be scraping egg off her face.
The Pisces Male has a healthy respect for life, particularly when seen through his humorous eyes. He is the modern-day mystic, sans the tranquility training. He is charming and romantic, beautifully surreal. He can be obsessive and moody one minute – at times pouring out his soul – and the next, be extremely still and private. He loves deeply, and emotionally, and can find himself easily attached – but always searching for a new level of intensity. He is most attracted to beautiful people who are strong enough to keep him in line, and smart enough to do so privately with respect and compassion. The Pisces male is notorious for wanting what he can’t have and sometimes living in the melancholy memory (or bottle!) of the past he’s left behind.
