And what about that special someone you've got your eye on? Wouldn't you like to know what makes them tick, in love and in life? Check to find out more about who they are and what they're looking for in love. And from there, a world of information is at your fingertips -- from their likes and dislikes on down to their approach to romance and their preferences in the game of love.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Fools rush in, as they say, and an Aries can probably tell you all about it. This Sign is a fiery, impetuous person who falls first and worries about the consequences later. A brave and ardent soul, Aries is like an arrow in the game of love, aiming straight for the target -- and moving fast. But the heady excitement of the chase can be the most compelling stage for this Sign, which isn't known for its follow-through, unless other influences in the birth chart -- or a well-chosen mate -- can provide a grounding influence to tame that Aries fire. This Sign's flash-and-burn emotional life can be hard to follow; a heated argument is quickly forgotten when Aries moves on to kissing and making up. Well, what else can be expected of such a spontaneous and fiery Sign?
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Taurus is all about reveling in the sensual pleasures that life has to offer -- good food, fine wine - and what could be better than sharing these delights with a loved one? Taurus possesses an earthy, compelling nature and lazy afternoons spent cuddling with a special someone are some of this Sign's most precious moments. Taurus lives for love and is built for commitment, and its connection to Venus, the Planet of Love, makes for a romantic streak a mile wide. And it doesn't just run skin-deep: Taurus serves as the calm, practical backbone of a relationship. This Sign will never forget to stop and smell the roses -- sometimes to a fault. This Sign could benefit from a more energetic partner who's willing to provide a push from time to time.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
For a Gemini, love is all about a meeting of the minds. This Sign is witty, sociable and more than a little bit flirtatious! The life of the party, Gemini is well loved for that sharp wit and friendly curiosity. For this Sign, freedom in a relationship is of utmost importance, as is friendship. In fact, a Gemini will most likely be friends first. A relationship can begin with a conversation that lasts all night, during which everything under the sun will be discussed ... and the sparks will slowly ignite. But don't underestimate this fast-paced Sign. Gemini can fall hard and fast, and can change its mind just as quickly. A partner who keeps things light and exciting is essential for this Sign to stay focused.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
For Cancer, home is truly where the heart is. This sweet, sensitive Sign craves a deep emotional connection with a special someone and won't waste time on anything less than a serious, committed relationship. Cancer adores creating a comfortable love nest that serves as a safe haven from the outside world, and if anything threatens that comfort zone -- too much criticism, for example, or an argument -- it's into that Crab shell for protection and rejuvenation. This Sign needs a partner who respects its sensitivity and will treat it with tender care. And in return, Cancer will nurture and protect its loved ones until the end. This Sign has great capacity for commitment, and makes a steady, emotionally connected partner.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
For Leo, the power of passion is all-encompassing. This warm-hearted Sign delights in the drama and grandeur of love, and makes a generous, devoted and protective partner who will do anything for its object of desire. But like the Lion, Leo has plenty of pride and wants to be not just acknowledged but adored for its generosity and prowess in matters of the heart. This Sign works best with a partner who can play cheering audience to Leo's center stage performance. But don't misunderstand the Beast of the Jungle - Leo isn't simply self-centered. For all that sunny strength, this Sign is actually rather sensitive and easily wounded. Leo needs someone who will provide plenty of love and loyalty, and who will appreciate the same in return.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
Virgo searches for refinement and perfection in all things, and that goes for love as well. This Sign can have rather high standards when it comes to choosing a romantic partner; anyone who falls in love with a Virgo may feel as though they have to jump through hoop after hoop before their worth has been proved! But though this Sign can seem rather undemonstrative, once it falls, it's dedicated for the long haul. Virgo adores serving a partner and, among other things, will work hard to create a clean, comfortable and orderly home life. This Sign does possess an earthy nature but can find it difficult to let go sometimes, and will benefit from an indulgent person who can help let that tightly-wound hair down once in a while.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Ah, Libra -- perhaps the most romantic and soft-hearted Sign of the Zodiac. Truly in love with love, this Sign is happiest in a relationship and feels most whole when there's an intimate partner there to share the good times. Libra so adores being happily coupled, in fact, that it will often avoid rocking the boat in a relationship simply to preserve the peace. This highly sociable Sign loves going out, seeing and being seen. In fact, Libra can get so caught up in a fun, active social life that it forgets the benefits of coming home once in a while and relaxing in private! This Sign works best with someone who can keep up with that whirlwind social life, but who can also bring a grounding influence to the relationship.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Wow -- Scorpio is nothing if not intense in matters of the heart. This Sign's emotional waters truly run deep, and there's far more going on under the surface than most would realize. Translation? Anyone who falls for a Scorpio had best get ready for a wild and intense ride! This Sign is capable of great commitment to a partner, but is also quite emotionally sensitive. When arguments erupt, they can get heated fast! But Scorpio tends to forge deep, strong bonds that don't break easily. This Sign works well with a person who won't shy away from that emotional intensity, and one who can bring a bit of humor and light-heartedness to the mix. Scorpio tends to forget that love should be not only a powerful experience, but a pleasurable one.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
Sagittarius sees the game of love as just that - a fun and lively pastime that can lead to mind-blowing experiences. This is a freedom-loving Sign that won't be pressured into a commitment; the best approach with Sagittarius is to allow things to flow naturally, and simply follow where the experience leads. Sag is all about expanding the mind, and is most attracted to someone who offers something new and previously unconsidered -- a fresh philosophy, perhaps, or an exotic background. Sagittarius definitely likes a taste of the exotic when it comes to passion, and will most likely avoid anything traditional. Instead of dinner and a movie, how about a wilderness trek that ends in a picnic dinner at the top of a mountain? Sounds like just this Sign's style!
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
Capricorn is a serious Sign that's serious about love. Not one for quick, heady, casual affairs, this Sign's dating life may seem more like a series of job interviews in which Capricorn is busy finding out if this one is worth the hard work that goes into building a relationship. Nothing is more important to this Sign than security; Capricorn is both trustworthy and hardworking, and seeks the same qualities in a partner. This Sign gets better with age, and the love relationship will also improve over time, because Capricorn works hard to perfect that bond. This Sign would do well with someone who can remind them that there's more to life than hard work -- that love is a precious and pleasurable experience, and one to be shared.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
Aquarius makes for quite a unique and inventive person! This Sign definitely marches to the beat of a different drummer, in love and in life. Friendship is very important to Aquarius, who is likely to be friends first and to remain friends even if the passion fades. Aquarius requires plenty of freedom in a relationship, and can come across as undemonstrative, even cool or detached. But don't misunderstand this Sign; Aquarius is capable of great devotion and commitment to a relationship. Though this may not be the most emotional of Signs, it is definitely an interesting one. Aquarius works best with someone who can provide the freedom it needs, but who can also bring some warmth and vitality to the mix.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Pisces tunes right in to a partners subtlest rhythms to create a bond that is deep, intuitive and emotional. This dreamy Sign has an enormous heart and a compassionate soul, and can even be too open - Pisces has weak instincts when it comes to self-preservation, and will be generous to a fault when the heart is involved. Still, this is a highly romantic, idealistic Sign that adores love and all that comes with it; in fact, Pisces can get fairly lost in an ocean of feeling and sensation. Due to that impractical nature, this Sign works best with a strong, practical and trustworthy partner who can serve as the rock in the relationship. Pisces, in turn, will provide the nurturing, the sweetness and the emotional generosity that makes the connection so special.
