How does each zodiac sign approach love and romance? As always, after reading your sun sign, read your Rising Sign too! If you don’t know what that is, you are missing out on a lot of information about yourself and you might want to have your natal chart done. Note that the information below may be modified somewhat if you have a lot of planets in a different sign and if you have planets very close to the Ascendant, which is also called the Rising Sign!
Aries the Ram is very impatient and does not want to waste much time on the chase or on the art of seduction. They like to be the initiator and tend to fall in love quickly. The physical side of love is always as important as the romantic side. They are impatient and impulsive and may move on if the flame starts to die down. They are ruled by Mars.
Taurus the Bull must have beauty or attractiveness in the one they love. They are known for being down to earth and conservative, yet they make an adoring lover. They want a partner who understands their sensitivity and uninhibited side. There is a tendency toward jealousy, but once they feel secure, they are faithful and like being married, usually not demanding too much in return. Venus is their ruler.
Gemini, the sign of the Twins – Their dual personality could be like getting two lovers for the price of one. Needing constant change, they will want to keep two partners for as long as they can, and it may be hard for them to settle down too soon. They can live happily ever after with someone who is perceptive, loving, and understanding of their dual nature. Depending on which twin is in control, they could meet a perfect forever partner who offers these qualities. Quick-moving Mercury is their ruler.
Cancer the Crab looks for the big romantic dream but often it doesn’t turn out to be the rosy path they expected. After about age forty, they become much wiser. Security, marriage and a home of their own will bring them the best personal, lasting happiness. The Moon ruling their sign affects their emotions more than any of the other zodiac signs. Until Mr. Right comes along, they will enjoy good romance novels and romantic movies.
Leo the Lion has personal magnetism and knows how to make you feel special, even if you aren’t the only one in their life. Everyone should enjoy being loved by a Leo. They are so warm and considerate, and others could mistake that for a greater interest than they actually feel. They are dramatic in some way and fun to be around. Once happily married, Leo will be a faithful, protective and caring partner.
Virgo the virgin is not necessarily virginal, but is very discriminating. They have a delightful mind and good looks that rarely fade with age. Rather than enjoying the attention they get from others, they look at them analytically. They are not too anxious to get emotionally attached, but once they feel ready; both financially and emotionally, they choose a partner very carefully. They need intellectual compatibility and often find that a mutual interest in work creates a bond. Mercury is also their ruler.
Libra whose symbol is the scales, is seen as the love goddess of the zodiac and the males are noted for their gentlemanly charm. They are very refined in love, and in speech and actions. Small unexpected gifts please them and a gracious, luxurious approach to love works best. If divorced, they can be very discreet and enjoy experiencing different partnerships. There is always a partner around the corner for Librans. Their ruler is Venus.
Scorpio is either the scorpion or the eagle. Once they find a compatible person who can understand the depths of their nature, they are the most exciting companion. They can love with great passion if they decide the person is worthy of the emotional drain. They like being the one in command and can be jealous or experience jealousy from others. Their love may inspire them to write, paint or sculpt, but if it ends badly, that inspiration will dry up and life will be very dismal for them. Pluto is their ruler.
Sagittarius the archer is very interested in people and that naturally leads to romance. They aim their arrow directly at their target and nothing will deter them from wooing their chosen one. Females are more subtle but no less determined. Being a fire sign, they rush quickly into romance. If a partner is not too responsive, they can be content to be an exceptionally good friend. You may need to remind them of birthdays and anniversaries, but they are not usually found in the divorce courts.
Capricorn is the mountain goat. Their ruling planet Saturn often puts up barriers in the realm of romance. Often there is unrequited love and attempting to forget someone, they might go to the altar for reasons other than true love. They are very stable, if a bit serious. They can disguise their feelings very well. They are usually not happy with secret liaisons, resorting to them only out of loneliness or depression. Often Saturn allows them true marital happiness later in life.
Aquarius is the water bearer – But this is not a water sign, rather an air sign pouring out ideas on others. Their ruling planet Uranus, which is the planet of the unusual and unexpected, produces remarkable people in Aquarians. They like partners who are unconventional in some way. If friends wonder what Aquarians see in someone, it rarely matters to them because they can see beyond mere physical attraction. They love to be with someone with whom they can have great conversations.
Pisces the fish – they will want full romantic treatment even after the wedding bells have stopped ringing. They are easily hurt but do get over it quickly. A Pisces can say good bye quicker than anyone else if they are hurt too much or get bored. They idealize the loved one and want to create romantic moments as often as they can. They have practically all the other signs at their mercy when it comes to romance.
When you find that seemingly perfect other, consider having a compatibility chart done so you can see how well all your natal planets connect with each other. Understand your potential life partner so you can work on any disharmony between you and enjoy better harmony together. Many people marry without really knowing their partner and are apt to get a few surprises after the honeymoon.
