We all want lasting love. It’s as deeply ingrained in us as the desire to eat, breath and have sex. Yet finding it is not nearly as easy as simply desiring it! The search for that healthy, happily ever after ending can be tricky at times. That’s why enlisting the use of astrology can make for good strategy.
Sun sign astrology is a fun way to navigate your way around relationships and people you come into contact with. If you know the characteristics each zodiac sign infuses someone with, you can anticipate personality traits to look forward to – or ones you may have to put up with later!
As they say, knowledge is power. So we hope you will enjoy using this quick personality guide as insight into those you are attracted to.
The Ram tends to be romantic, possessive and daring. And did we mention exciting? Their not-insignificant egos require that they be #1 at all times. If not properly entranced, they will leave a relationship in search of one that is more daring. It may seem as if falling in (and out!) of love is a hobby for those born under this sign, but they are simply searching for the perfect love with a person who can keep up – and keep their attention. Sexually, they want a partner who is as uninhibited as they are. Lust, if properly (and repeatedly) exercised can satiate Aries’ appetite, and lure them home each night before dark. The meek and weak need not apply for a piece of the ram’s heart, for their fiery temper and spirit only fuels the stubbornness that they impart. While it is possible for an Aries to mate for life, this characteristic usually doesn’t show up in most until later in life.
Most Compatible: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Bulls are at their most complete when they are with a partner. This emotional, loving and sensitive sign has a hard time revealing that they are vulnerable and fear rejection… but they do. Taurus loves with conviction, even past the point that it serves them, for their romantic nature never wants to believe all their hard work and investment of time was for nothing. People born under this sign don’t need the whirlwind romantic wooings of the stars because dinner at home by candlelight in the dining room is love-nest enough. Taurus always wants to know where they stand, but tend to acquire this information without the drama of insecurity. Warm and tender, they prefer to keep their private life private. Hence, they’re not prone to overt public displays of affection – but can be rather wild behind closed doors. They are an extremely steady and giving partner, and yearn for stability in all areas of life. Loyal to the core, they are always there to support and nurture those they love.
Most Compatible: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces
The Twins in love is a maddening experience, escalating from joyous pleasure to mass confusion with a passing thought. This sign truly lives up to its split nature, either wanting all or nothing (and sometimes both) – in the same hour! Getting close to a Gemini can be equated with auditioning for a starring role. If you don’t intrigue them intellectually within the first five minutes, you may have lost their attention forever. Should you make the cut, be prepared to be analyzed – for love is scary territory for these infants. Gemini’s nature is that of a social butterfly, flitting from flower to flower until they find the one total package that stops them in their tracks. This sign needs someone who is emotionally stimulating, intellectually challenging, and able to stroke their ego without being too possessive. Once you’ve caught a Gemini, the true fun begins, for there is never a dull moment – in the bedroom or in public! Gemini will love with just as much passion as they receive – but they do require a little extra love and care.
Most Compatible: Gemini, Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius
To Cancer, love is the meaning of life. Without it, they suffer. With it, they embrace life! Because they are vulnerable to hurts and slights, Cancer may appear distant or aloof, but they are merely being cautious. Once trust has been established, the floodgates of love open wide, for this is one sign who knows that there must be give-and-take for a relationship to survive. The greatest gift a Crab can receive is devotion, love and security. Every romance has marriage potential through Cancer’s eyes, with family being the next logical step. As a partner, they are eager to please, and will put your needs above their own, experiencing joy from the mere act of giving. Because Cancer is such a loyal sign, they often struggle with insecurity, and can be jealous or possessive of their partners – mainly because the relationship truly is the center of their life.
Most Compatible: Cancer, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces
Leo definitely is a sign that is in love with love. The Lion is even more enchanted by romance. Sometimes, the two can become confused in their mind. As long as they are being treated like royalty, it’s all good. A certain amount of ego has to be accepted to love a Leo, because Leo loves their ego. People born under this sign are so warm, generous, good natured and fun, that a little ego can be forgiven or worked around. Sexy, sultry and flat-out enticing, everything is heaven when Leo is happy in love. An unhappy lion, however, makes it known – either by throwing a tantrum or sulking in a corner, depending on their mood. If you love a Leo, feed their ego, shower them with affection (and gifts), and you may be on your way to an eternity of bliss.
Most Compatible: Leo, Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius
First impressions are critical with Virgo, because they know how to size you up. Even though this sign is known for its organizational nature, love is the one area of life Virgo can’t plan or control. For the Virgin, the union begins with a meeting of minds. Know you must sweep them off their feet on an intellectual plane. Layer by layer, Virgo will shed their protective skins, inviting you into the warmest, most loving place of soul-entwined unity that can be experienced by the human race. Marriage and commitment are a symbol of security, and Virgo will protect their end of the deal with ferocity. To love a Virgo, understand that there is no room for deceit or games. Honesty and purity must prevail, or the love that was once growing will quickly (and brutally) fail.
Most Compatible: Virgo, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn
Libra has a very idealistic, sometimes fantastic, view of love. They want to feel the earth move, hear bells ring, and be swept off their feet. Fortunately, because of their easy-going nature, this isn’t an impossible request to be fulfilled. Libra often exhibits signs of co-dependence, mainly because they love very deep. Libra believes two can be one, and not just behind the bedroom’s closed doors. Unity for Libra means knowing their partner’s every thought, exhaling their every breath. Because Libra will live to please those they love, they will avoid causing a loved one pain, even at the expense of themselves. A Libra who feels secure in a relationship can master the art of give-and-take, instead of being all give. A union with a Libra is an evolutionary process, one that is likely to improve with each passing year.
Most Compatible: Libra, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
The Scorpion knows that sex is power, and they distinctly exude undeniable sensuality. Falling for a Scorpio can be a dangerous game, because early on, you’re never quite certain of the rules. Once you have gained their trust, it would still be wise to hone your psychic senses. People born under this sign are incredibly passionate as they love with fear and depth. However, they aren’t always the best at verbally sharing the position you hold. As long as passion runs deep, you can assume you are safe, because Scorpios can be very loyal and are unlikely to waste their precious time. While most will deny it, they do have a jealous and possessive streak, but it comes out in a subdued manner, almost sly. Being loved by a Scorpio is an intimate game that can challenge your patience and stimulate your mind.
Most Compatible: Scorpio, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces
The Archer is as free-spirited in love as they are in every other area of life. A candlelight dinner isn’t romantic, unless it happens to be taking place on the red-eye to Paris. Love is exciting, and every minute should be an experience. Impulse and activity is the way of Sagittarius, therefore, they need a partner who not only can keep up, but also knows when to let them go off on their own. While it is hard to get a Sag to settle down, when they do, commitment and marriage is rooted in friendship where a sacred union blossoms from there. Sagittarius wants their best friend to be their lover and partner, for every experience is to be shared.
Most Compatible: Sagittarius, Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius
Capricorn may be as cold as steel in the business world but a Capricorn in love is softer than the finest silk. They tend to hide their insecurities under a cool, got-it-together facade but know this is one sign you don’t want to play games with. Capricorns are very serious when it comes to love, and they expect their partners to take them seriously. They are stable and patient, warm and caring creatures whose sense of romance expands with each romantic moment that is shared. The goat is as likely to lead as to follow in the dark of the bedroom – and they have stamina enough to keep things exciting until morning. Capricorns will not settle for just anyone, they seek out partners who offer stability, security and those who will return total loyalty. A Capricorn in love will find that emotional happiness is the one thing that money can’t buy – it may even be more rewarding than their dividends!
Most Compatible: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio
The Water Bearer is as unconventional in love as they are in every other area of their life. Aquarius will love you for your good points as well as your bad, for they know how to embrace and respect every facet of another’s character. They want someone to share their passions with, and who understands their quirky sense of romance. Even though they tend to completely admire their lovers, this does not mean every moment is to be spent together – Aquarius does tend to cling to their freedom and space. Love with Aquarius starts on an intellectual plane with any commitments made being based on communication and easy-going companionship. The more freedom Aquarius has in the confines of a relationship, the more faithful they will be. For them, absence truly does make the heart grow fonder – and there is no room for possessiveness or jealousy.
Most Compatible: Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius
The Fish tends to be a dreamy idealist who can completely immerse itself into romantic love.
Sensual and sexual, people born under this sign always believe that the perfect union isn’t a fantasy. If they try hard enough or wait long enough, eventually they will live a blissful life in a castle in the clouds. A Pisces who isn’t getting what they believe they deserve in a relationship can be a bit hard to handle, for these emotional beings can easily become a victim of their intense emotions and fall into a depressive state. Pisces may wander from lover to lover, but when they commit to a relationship that has a balance of romance and security, it is fairly safe to say that they will not stray. If love is a drug, Pisces is the original addict.
Most Compatible: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn
