What does your lover really want on Valentine’s Day – or indeed, any other day of the year? Find out what makes this sign’s heart leap, and how you can ensure your Valentine’s Day goes with a swing.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Your Aries lover needs to feel that he or she is the best and most fantastic partner you’ve ever had. This is one sign where flattery will get you everywhere. On Valentine’s Day, your partner will enjoy a romantic surprise, but if you’re thinking of anything which involves going out, tread carefully. Aries likes to make all the decisions, and doesn’t take kindly to a fait accompli.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Taurus is a very sensual sign, and will like nothing better than a quiet night in on Valentine’s day – accompanied by romantic touches, candlelight and flowers, of course. Taurus men like to feel masculine and women like to feel feminine, so choose a gift which will enhance these feelings and help them feel as gorgeous as they can possibly be.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Gemini is a flirtatious sign but usually doesn’t mean anything by it. On Valentine’s Day, your Gemini lover will enjoy a masked ball or a group dinner party – something where they can show you off and you can show them off too. It’s a social thing – although once you get home, playful Gemini will be only too quick to show their appreciation.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
The one thing your Cancer partner wants more than anything is to look after you. Show your understanding and respect for his or her nurturing nature by taking the day off work and going out to the movies together during the day – and then sharing the cooking of a delicious meal at home in the evening. Food and romance is a big Cancer turn on.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
Leos in love expect – no, demand – to be adored. To please your Leo lover on Valentine’s Day, only a grand gesture will do. Don’t confuse this with having to spend a fortune, however. It’s not what you can afford, but Leo will hope to see that much complexity, time, effort and devotion has gone into your idea. Take him or her on a specially planned romantic treasure hunt.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
Virgos don’t like to make a fuss, and will cringe at expensive or overly showy Valentine’s Day dramatics. To get your Virgo smiling, however, try surprising him or her with a voucher for a spa day, or a meditation class. In terms of actual celebrations, a quiet dinner for two at a favorite restaurant is both classic and perfect, and will suit your dignified Virgo well.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Librans are the archetypal romantics of the zodiac, and if you’ve been in love with a Libra for long, you’re probably used to making romantic gestures. To make Valentine’s Day truly special, though, mix laughter with love. A trip to a comedy club or similar will make your Libra’s day, and keep him or her happy long after the event. But don’t forget the roses!
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Intense Scorpio no doubt has his or her own surprises for you on Valentine’s day, but one thing your Scorpio partner won’t enjoy is sharing the evening with anyone else. Stay at home to avoid jealousy and power plays – after all, with what Scorpio has in mind, you’re going to need some privacy! As a gift, choose something symbolic and meaningful rather than tacky and expensive.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
To really please your Sagittarius lover on Valentine’s Day, get out of doors. Take a moonlit walk on the beach, or pack up and go horseback riding together. Do something which inspires your lover’s sense of adventure and freedom. Don’t waste your money on flowers or chocolates – he or she would much rather you save it towards your next joint kayaking trip.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
The ultimate romantic gesture for Valentine’s Day, as far as Capricorn is concerned, is a wedding proposal, since this sign values commitment above all else. If you’re already married, why not suggest that you renew your vows? Meanwhile, the traditional romantic meal will be much enjoyed…provided your Capricorn isn’t working late.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
Don’t take it personally if your Aquarius lover has invited your joint friends round for Valentine’s Day. For Aquarius, love is a many meaning word, and he or she has probably just misread your desire for time alone. For a gift, try some cruelty free beauty products – and don’t worry, once your friends have gone, Aquarius will most definitely be all yours.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Your Pisces lover will understand and forgive you if you forget to buy him or her a Valentine’s Day gift….which is precisely why you really shouldn’t forget. Show Pisces that you don’t take him or her for granted. Hand made, personalized or meaningful gifts are much more appreciated than expensive ones, and ultimately there’s nothing Pisces wants more Valentine’s than your time.
