Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether your crush is crushing back on you. After all, many men are notoriously closed-lipped about their feelings, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart. But if you know his Zodiac sign, you have an important key to understanding not just his personality, but his behavior — and his desire nature. Since each Sun sign expresses attraction in its own ways, every man sends out different, individual signals that are unique to his sign. Read your guy’s sign to unlock the mystery of whether or not he’s into you.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Aries isn’t exactly a subtle sign. After all, it’s symbolized by the Ram — that animal that charges after the object of its desires, head-butting any obstacles out of the way. If your guy is an Aries, expect things to heat up fast. He simply doesn’t know how to play it cool or take things slowly. If he’s into you, he’ll send you frequent texts and emails, call you out of the blue, or even drop by unannounced to say hello. And since Aries has a strong competitive streak, he’ll take every chance he gets to show off his skills in front of you. On that note, he also isn’t afraid of rivals in the game of love, so if he’s not the only one fighting for your attentions, expect big displays of charm — and perhaps some locking of horns with his competitor — as he contends for your heart. Bottom line? If an Aries man is into you, he won’t be able to keep it a secret, so you won’t have to wonder for long.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Taurus is a pleasure-seeking sign, and also a generous one. If your guy is a Taurus, he’ll let you know he likes you through what he gives you — everything from a sensual shoulder massage to chocolates, flowers, compliments, and sexy, meaningful glances. If he cooks you a meal, you’ll know you’ve got him hooked, but taking you out to a restaurant where the dishes are rich and delicious is also a sure sign. The bottom line here is, the Bull wants to make you feel pleasure, and he’ll appeal to all five of your senses to make that happen. As your Taurus guy falls for you, expect to be wooed and doted upon in a wonderfully traditional way. Best of all, he isn’t one to lose interest quickly. The more signals he sends, the more deeply you know his heart is involved.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
When it comes to attraction, it can be difficult to read a Gemini man. The sign of the Twins can be quite charming and flirtatious, but Geminis tend to flirt with lots of people, rather than focusing their attentions on just one lucky recipient. It’s not that this sign enjoys leading people on; Gemini is just naturally curious, talkative and playful. When you meet a Gemini man at a party, a book reading or anywhere else, he might seem clearly interested in you in the moment, but soon he could move on to someone else. The trick, then, is to take a wait-and-see approach. If he keeps coming back for more scintillating debate and conversation, and if he seems delightedly aroused by the way you challenge his wits and keep him guessing, you can bet that he’s interested in finding out where this relationship might lead.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
Cancer can be difficult to read on lots of levels, including a romantic one. This deeply emotional sign needs to feel safe and secure before he can let his heart be known to the one he admires. And it doesn’t help that the sign of the Crab is famously moody! So figuring out whether he’s into you is about interpreting his actions accurately — namely, his urge to protect what he cares about most. Cancer men show their interest by taking care of the object of their desires, which can manifest in many different ways. Behaviors that might seem a bit patronizing or even overbearing — insisting on walking you to your car, for example, or admonishing you not to lift that heavy box — are actually his attempt to keep you safe. When he makes it clear that he wants to make sure you’re well protected, that’s when you know you truly matter to your Cancer guy.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
When it comes to Leo men, it usually isn’t difficult to know whether he’s into you. This is the sign of the Lion, after all — the king of the jungle, that gorgeous, passionate beast with a courageous heart who roars out his feelings for all to hear. Leo men don’t just tell you how they feel, they show it, showering you with affection, attention and gifts galore. If he’s passionate about you, he wants to show you the time of your life, and he’ll pull out all the stops to make that happen. The trick with a Leo is to let him compete to win your heart — but also let him know you’re a sure thing. Leos are known for their bravery and self-confidence, but they’re actually quite tender at heart, and they need reassurance to know where they stand.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
If you’re wondering whether a Virgo man is into you, don’t expect grand displays or passionate declarations of affection — at least, not at first. Virgo is a reserved sign that moves forward slowly and carefully in the game of love. In fact, for this sign, love isn’t a game at all; that’s why Virgo takes it so seriously. He might even seem indecisive about making his move, but it’s just that he wants to get to know you well before proceeding. If he’s interested in you, he’ll show it through his quiet, considerate attention. He’ll be a good listener, not to mention a great sounding board for any issues that might be troubling you, and he’ll always do his best to offer sensible, sensitive advice. The bottom line here is that Virgo is a true and traditional gentleman. If you want to know whether he’s into you, do your best not to push — not right away. In time, he will make his feelings known. And when he does, you’ll know it’s real.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Want to know whether a Libra man is into you? It’s pretty simple: If he seems interested, then he probably truly is. Since Libra is the sign of Partnership and is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, this is an exceedingly romantic sign. To put it simply, Libra men are in love with love. Accordingly, they tend to wear their hearts on display, and they can’t help but make their affections known. It starts with sweet smiles, loving gazes and wonderful, heartfelt compliments, and moves on from there to love notes, poetry, flowers — all the trappings of true romance. Soon, you’ll be the envy of your friends and coworkers as your man sends you chocolates at work or treats you to an impromptu moonlight serenade. Remember, with a heart this sweet and tender, this guy deserves a little extra sweet treatment, himself.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
If a Scorpio man is into you, expect passionate attention — so much that you could feel a bit put on the spot. This is the guy who catches your gaze across a crowded room or who keeps showing up around seemingly every corner, and who only has eyes for you. If you’re getting the idea that Scorpios are intense, you’re right: This is one of the most sexually and emotionally complex signs of the Zodiac. If he flirts with you, you can be assured that he’s truly interested, since this sign isn’t frivolous about flirtation. What he seeks is true intimacy — a merging of the souls. If he senses that he has competition, you might even see Scorpio’s darker side come out, since this sign can be quite possessive in love. The bottom line here is, if he’s into you, he will let you know; you might even feel helpless to resist his single-minded pursuit.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
If you’re wondering whether a Sagittarius man is into you, look no further than the sparkle in his eye and the smile on his lips as he gives you that bright, curious look of interest. Sagittarian men adore meeting new and fascinating people. If he’s into you, he’ll go out of his way to spend more time with you, making you laugh and gasp as he tells you tales of his exploits around the world. When he asks you to join him in chasing down an adventure, you’ll know you’ve really caught his eye. That’s what life is all about for this sign, after all: going where chance and impulse lead, preferably with an intriguing companion by his side. Just know that his attention may not be constant. This doesn’t mean he isn’t into you; it just means some other experience has momentarily caught his attention. If he’s truly into you, he’ll be back for more.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
A busy Capricorn man isn’t one to beat around the bush when it comes to a potential love affair; he simply doesn’t have the time. Plus, Capricorns tend to have a naturally authoritative bearing, not to mention a traditional approach to romance, so if he’s into you, he’ll be direct in letting you know. Of course, setting up a date with this sign can feel a bit like making a professional appointment — not exactly the most romantic experience in the world. Still, he’ll make up for it by treating you to dinner at the best restaurant in town, or something else equally impressive. That, in fact, is the way to know whether a Capricorn man is into you: Judge it by how far he goes to impress you. If he goes out of his way to show you the finer side of life, you can rest assured, he’s interested.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
When it comes to romance, it can be hard to read an Aquarius man. This is a fascinating sign that dances to the beat of his own drummer, after all, so expect your experiences with him to be the same. One important thing to know about Aquarians is that they aren’t naturally frivolous or flirtatious. If he shows interest in you, it’s probably true and enduring — so don’t be put off if he invites you to a party but then spends most of his time chatting up everyone else. He could also seem aloof or even uncomfortable in traditional, one-on-one date settings, such as an intimate dinner at a romantic restaurant. It almost certainly isn’t you; it’s more likely that your Aquarius man is more comfortable with intellectual ideas than with deep emotions. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have deep feelings — or that he isn’t feeling it with you. If you’re into him, be patient. Sooner or later, he’ll make his attraction known.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
If a Pisces man is into you, he’ll show his interest in a variety of ways. This is a deeply intuitive and romantic sign, so expect an emotional connection, right from the start. He might gaze soulfully into your eyes, or display an unusual amount of compassion as you tell him about a problem you’re experiencing or a difficult experience you had. As his attraction progresses, he’ll find creative ways to woo you — reading you love poems, perhaps, or sharing with you a piece of art or music that he made himself. But the key to Pisces’s attraction truly lies in his eyes — the way he looks at you with his whole, open heart apparent in his gaze. When he starts showing you how deeply attuned he is to your needs and feelings, that’s when you’ll know you’ve got him hooked.
