If you’re still trotting out tired old pickup lines in an effort to meet the woman of your dreams, it’s time for a new — and far more individualized — approach. After all, what piques a woman’s interest is as singular as her tastes, style and overall personality. But how can you know what might arouse her interest long enough to take a second glance your way? That’s the easy part: Look no further than her Zodiac sign. A woman’s Sun sign reveals the secrets and intricacies of her passionate side, and provides you with guidance regarding the best way to approach her, romance her, and ultimately win her heart. Read about that special woman’s sign to read all about how to make her your own.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
When it comes to romance, passionate Aries women adore the chase — which means you’ll have to strike a tricky balance between pursuing your interest and keeping your cards close to your chest. The sign of the Ram is most attracted to a strong and ardent lover who can sweep her off her feet. She falls fast and hard, so once the attraction is mutual, things could heat up quickly between you. The only issue is making sure she still finds you fascinating once the smoke clears. One good strategy is to keep her guessing: Be bold in making your desires known, but once you’ve shared that first, smoldering encounter, don’t make yourself overly available for an encore. Also, remember that Aries women find clingy emotionalism a major turn-off. Your Aries gal needs a confident, independent lover who can meet every challenge she tosses in your path.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Taurus women love to be wooed, and a traditional approach works just fine. Treat her to a sumptuous meal — she’ll equally appreciate something home-cooked or going out for fine dining — and let her know how much you enjoy watching her revel in the different flavors and textures. Once the meal concludes, awaken her senses even further with a gentle but firm foot massage or back rub. But if you truly want to win this woman’s heart for keeps, show her that you’ll be there for the long haul. The Taurus woman certainly knows how to enjoy herself, but at the end of the day, she seeks steady, enduring love with a partner who can stick by her side through both good times and challenging ones. Once you prove yourself to this grounded, earthy woman, you’ll be treated to all the bounty of her devoted, giving nature.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
The quickest way to a Gemini woman’s heart? Through her intellect, of course. This witty, knowledgeable woman’s interest is piqued by someone who can make her laugh as well as challenge her ideas. In fact, when you’re getting to know each other, skip the movie date — there won’t be enough time to talk. Instead, take her out to a dinner party or pub, where you’ll have plenty of time to flirt and match wits. Challenge her to a trivia game or quiz her on current issues, and then enjoy the way the conversation flows naturally from one topic to another. Most of all, let her know how fascinating you find her to be. And finally, one more hint: If you want to ignite her desires, play up your voice and your hands — Gemini women adore a lover who possesses clever words and fingers.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
Wooing a Cancer woman’s heart is all about skipping the surface-level, frivolous stuff in favor of the real deal. At base, she needs to know that you’ll be there for her, no matter what. The sign of the Crab seeks security in all things, and that certainly includes love. She needs a relationship that can serve as a safe haven from the daily demands and stresses of life, and that requires a partner who is strong, steady and nurturing. Don’t be surprised if your relationship deepens quickly toward a commitment — or, conversely, takes its time in moving up to that next level. The Cancer woman needs to feel safe and adored, so players need not apply. Show her you’re serious by treating her to a picnic featuring dishes you made yourself, inviting her to dinner at your home, or even bringing her along to a family barbecue.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
The Leo woman is so passionate, bold and charismatic, it’s no wonder you’re after her heart. Just don’t let her take-charge personality push you into a passive role in the relationship. There’s no quicker way to douse her inner fire than being overly submissive. She needs to know you’re as strong as she is, so show her your own passionate side. Be open and demonstrative in making your interest known. And most of all, once your connection deepens, show her that she doesn’t have to be so strong all the time, because you can shelter her from at least some of life’s slings and arrows. This, after all, is something little understood about the Queen of the Jungle: Behind that courageous, spirited exterior lies a tender and vulnerable heart. Make her feel properly protected and adored, and she’ll be your devoted partner for the long haul.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
If you want to win a Virgo woman’s heart, give her time. Gentle persistence is key with this shy and grounded woman — as are excellent hygiene and impeccable manners. Lazy, sloppy or crass types need not apply here; the Virgo woman seeks a partner in love whose personal standards are as high as her own. She is somewhat traditional and tends to have fine tastes, despite also being frugal, so treat her to a meal at a fine restaurant that isn’t too trendy or flashy. As you get to know one another, let her see your serious, hardworking side, as these are qualities she seeks in a lover. Once she feels comfortable with you and sure of your worth as a partner, you’ll know it: She’ll transform from that formerly shy, reserved woman into a vibrant, expressive and generous lover who is openly devoted to you.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
A dinner party, a gallery opening, a lively band playing music with a danceable beat — any of these would make an excellent first date to enjoy with a Libra woman, whose outgoing, sociable personality adores a friendly crowd. The sign of the Scales is also all about beauty and balance, so be sure to give your place a good once-over before inviting her home. She’s attracted to style and color, so putting some effort into your outfit and appearance is a must. And brush up on your conversational skills; the Libra woman is an intellectual at heart, but she also shies away from conflict. Instead of challenging her to an intense debate about politics or current events, let her take the lead in conversation, and be sure to let her know that you’re fascinated by her mind, first and foremost.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The passionate, intense and deeply emotional Scorpio woman is intrigued by a sense of mystery. When making your interest known, a soulful glance could be as effective as simply walking up and introducing yourself, if not even more so. As you get to know one another better, tempt her into wanting more by keeping your cards a bit close to your chest. However you choose to pursue this maddeningly captivating woman, just don’t delude yourself that you’re in charge. She might seem to let you take the lead, but rest assured that she’s pulling strings behind the scenes, making things unfold in the way she wants them to. Her personal power is an enormous part of her appeal; from your first conversation, you might find her so fascinating that you feel almost obsessed. It’s hard not to be swept up by such a potent personality!
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
The best way to win a Sagittarius woman’s heart? Dazzle her with your adventurous soul. She seeks an exhilarating lover, someone with whom every moment and experience is thrilling. So toss any overused date ideas right out the window; instead of the typical movie or cup of coffee, ask her to go skydiving or to attend a trapeze class. The sign of the Archer is a lifelong learner, so attending classes and workshops together is a great way to get a little closer. Just be sure to give her space, even as you crave more commitment and togetherness. Hers is a free and roaming soul; the old saying, “If you love someone, set them free,” most definitely applies here. In fact, the more you try to pin her down, the more difficult doing so may become. Instead, simply enjoy the open-ended adventure that is life with your Sagittarius woman.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
When it comes to winning the heart of a busy, hardworking Capricorn woman, the key is getting her to slow down and take notice long enough to take you seriously as a potential partner in life. Make no mistake — the sign of the Goat is looking for a long-term, enduring love. She may have long since decided hard work and personal advancement are too important to make time for romance; if so, that’s your cue to demonstrate just how serious you are about her. Persistence is essential here. After all, even diligent, industrious Capricorns need to unwind from time to time. Show her a good time by treating her to an excellent dinner and deep, soulful conversation. Play up your values, goals and ambition, as she needs to know you take life as seriously as she does. Of course, if she can also rely on you to help her loosen up, so much the better.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
If you’ve set your sights on an Aquarius woman, get ready for a fascinating, sometimes maddening ride. The sign of the Water Bearer is a true original, and she doesn’t much care whether you find her a bit odd. What does she care about? First and foremost, making the world a better place for all who live here. Her tastes and interests are likely to be unusual, so strike up a conversation about something she’s into and let it follow its own course. Don’t be surprised if you wind up discussing subjects you’ve never explored with anyone else. For date ideas, check out volunteer or charity opportunities, as the Aquarius woman loves community efforts and making a difference. Just don’t be surprised if she’s a bit hard to pin down, especially one on one. Deep, intense emotions aren’t exactly her thing. Still, when she falls for a lover, she’s in it for the long haul. Give her the freedom she needs, and she’ll give you her devotion in return.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Tender, nurturing Pisces — the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac. It might seem simple to win this woman’s heart, since it’s right out there on her sleeve, ready for the taking. And it’s true that Pisces women tend to fall hard — and when they fall, it’s like diving into the depths of the ocean. Still, the sign of the Fish needs some extra care and consideration on the road to love. If she’s like many Pisces, she’s been involved in the past with people who took advantage of her selfless, giving nature. Show her you’re made of stronger, far more generous and compassionate stuff than that. Treat her like the treasure she is by showering her with gifts, compliments and foot rubs galore, and she’ll devote her heart to you. Allow her access to your innermost thoughts, hopes and fears, and she’ll love you with a passionate intensity that fulfills you both.
