Many people turn to Astrology to answer their burning love life questions, reading every article they can find on compatibility between their zodiac sign and their crush’s or partners. With crosswatching (reading the horoscope for the object of your affections) is on the rise, I’d thought I’d make it just a little easier to dig up some dirt. Whether you just started dating or you’re in a long-term relationship, these are the ideal dates for the sign that has currently has your heart. If you’re an astro-nerd like me, who loves to read everything about their sign, this is for you too! So next time you have to plan a date you’ve got something in your queue.
Aries – Arcade and Go-Karts
Forever young at heart, Aries will enjoy arcade games, laser tag and go-karts. As a fire sign, they’re competitive by nature so any activity with a clear winner will thrill them. This date is sure to bring out their fun-loving intensity that makes everyone fall head overheels. If you talk smack to them it’s a done deal, but if you dish it out, be prepared to get it back. This date will make both of you feel like a kid again, and that’s where the magic starts while dating a ram.
Taurus – A Romantic Home-Cooked Meal
Taurus prefer their dates to be in close proximity to the bedroom. That’s why a home-cooked meal will win over the bulls. But this can’t be just any meal, no, no, no. This sensual earth sign ruled by Venus likes to be romanced. A nice table set, candles, rose petals and champagne, the whole nine yards. This will have them melting right in front of you. Bonus points for including a decadent dessert. Other at home dates a Taurus would enjoy is a game or movie night.
Gemini – Trivia Night at Your Favorite Bar
Ask your Gemini out to trivia night and watch their eyes light up. This intellectual air sign will enjoy showing off all the random knowledge they’ve acquired over the years. You’ll really feel the spark while you debate over the answers. Gemini will get way too into it, and it will strangely be incredibly hot. Afterwards, you’ll probably end up in an intense conversation and wind up closing the place down. Gemini loves to talk and you have to be a good listener and communicator to win them over.
Cancer – Couples Cooking Class
Cancer will truly delight in a couples cooking class. Not because they get the reputation for being the so-called “homemaker” of the zodiac, but because the act of creating something you both can share will help the two of you bond in their eyes. Getting this water sign to open up is the right way to capture their heart. During dinner you may notice your coy Cancer is starting to come out of their shell, and they’ll glow just a little brighter.
Leo – A Dance Class
A Leo is always ready to perform, that’s why you may see literal stars in their eyes if you suggest a dance class. It doesn’t really matter the type of dance – ballroom, tango or hip-hop – this theatrical fire sign will entertain you all night long. A plus for you is you’ll get to brush up against their hot bod. Their fun loving and playful vibe will really come out, and this side of Leo will easily sweep you off your feet. While Leo’s moves might be extremely majestic, the real star quality will come out if you get to know them better over drinks afterwards.
Virgo – A Hike
Virgos usually aren’t a fan of dirt, but if it’s where it belongs they can tolerate it. Many people would be surprised to learn that deep-down Virgos are nature freaks. They are an earth sign, after all. A peaceful trek through the woods will help quiet their very active minds. In this space, you’ll get acquainted with their eccentric side and you may just fall madly in love by the end of the trail. Suggest a cute cafe or juice bar afterwards and they’ll be thinking they’ve found “the one.”
Libra – Picnic in the Park
There is just something so classically romantic about a picnic in the park, and this scene is also classically Libra! As an air sign ruled by Venus, they’re all about courtship and love; it’s on their brain at least 90 percent of the time. Lay down the blanket on a warm sunny afternoon, pack and assortment of fruits, cheese and meats. They are a sophisticated sign and will judge you on your charcuterie choices, plus some fancy wine is always a good idea. If you can make this date feel right out of a movie, Libra will instantly take a liking to you. No pressure, though! They appreciate the effort most of all.
Scorpio – A Comedy Show
A comedy show appeals to Scorpio’s dark and twisted sense of humor. Laughing their ass off will bring out the twinkle in their eyes. Their brooding and mysterious aura is what draws people in, but their light-hearted ways are what make people stay. If the date is going well with this water sign, you can expect a lot of sexual tension, as the Scorpio will inch closer to you with every chuckle. After laughing so much they’ll feel relaxed and this is when they’re most likely to let you into their heart.
Sagittarius – A Theme Park
Sagittarius would have a grand old time at a theme park. The archers are thrill-seekers, so be prepared to ride the most extreme roller coaster at least twice. Joining them on a quest to hit every single attraction in the park will be quite an adventure. Never a dull moment with this zealous fire sign, that’s for sure! If this is a budding relationship, don’t worry about any awkward silences during wait times. Sag is bold, and anyone who has been dating one for a while could tell you it’s nearly impossible for them to run out of topics to talk about.
Capricorn – Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour
Capricorns are known to have a refined palate, and would therefore appreciate a wine tasting. Getting to casually stroll the vineyard and learn more about you will have the seagoat eating out of the palm of your hand. Be patient towards the end of the day while Capricron buys the entire stock of their favorite wine from the tasting. If they didn’t make an excuse to leave early, this is a good sign they’re interested and you’ll likely be sharing this wine on another date in the future. Capricorn doesn’t like to waste time.
Aquarius – An Art Museum
An art museum is like a playground to an Aquarius. They’ll be absolutely delighted to observe art work and talk about symbolism while exchanging opinions on the meaning behind it all. This intellectual air sign likes to get deep and express themselves, but they also enjoy bringing that out in others. Aquarius will get super into this date, so much so you may feel like they’re your personal tour guide. Don’t shy away from sharing your own interpretations, they really dig an individual and a free-thinker. The more “out-there” you are, the better.
Pisces – Paint & Sip
If there is art to be made and drinks to be drunk, Pisces is here for it. That’s why fishes would take great pleasure in a paint and sip date night. Good wine and a creative activity should really get the conversation flowing with this water sign. As the color on the canvas blends, so will the two of you. Pisces will bring up a ton of random topics, and this will be super endearing. Their easy-flowing magnetism will leave you wanting more.
