Like most things in life, you have zero control of your Zodiac star sign (unless your parents are expert planners and REALLY wanted you to be a Scorpio). Even if you're not a firm believer in ~cosmic destiny~, sometimes the stars have a lot to say about your love life.
From the feisty to the flirty, here's how your Zodiac sign plays into your dating habits.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb.18)
Most Aquarius signs are pretty intelligent (you go, girl!) so they're going to think through relationship struggles more than most. If there's ever something up for debate in a relationship, an Aquarius is going to be the first to speak. As an excellent communicator, you're not going to keep quiet when it comes to conflicts.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
No one appreciates peace quite like you, you calm and collected Pisces woman, you! Your caring demeanor serves you well when your significant other is distressed, but you have to be sure they reciprocate the feelings so you're properly appreciated, as well. Your selfless and tolerant nature serve you well in practically every relationship.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
All right, as far as passionate fire signs go, Aries takes the cake. Your feisty nature keeps your partner on their toes, but be careful not to lash out every time something goes wrong. Not everyone can be as enthusiastic as you are all the time!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
A Taurus' practical, responsible nature is perfect in almost any relationship–you see both sides of every issue and are willing to make compromises when necessary. Just be sure to let loose and take some risks on a date every once in a while!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Regardless of whether you actually have a twin, most Gemini signs have a tendency to run hot and cold. Some days you could be feeling totally peachy, and other days you'd rather spar with your partner than smooch. For your SO's sake, try to be as consistent as possible.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
No one is more loyal than you, sweet Cancer. This steadfast devotion serves you well romantically, but your sensitive feelings can sometimes be compromised if your loved one steps out of line. It's best to make sure your partner understands you better than you do.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Much like Aries, Leo signs are fiery and tenacious creatures eager to take a leadership role when it comes to romance. Though impatience and stubbornness can impede you at times, your creativity and desire to please your partner makes you a pretty damn good catch.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
As your very sign is that of a beautiful woman, it's only natural you should exude grace and kindness in all aspects of life. Your methodical and practical approach to dating can save you from some sticky situations, but listen to your heart now and then, not just your head!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct.22)
Libras value fairness above all, so you'll often be well-equipped if you and your partner ever quarrel. For you, compatiblity is of the utmost importance, so if you don't get with your person after some time, you know it's time to move on.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Scorpios are known for their ability to keep secrets and for how deeply they value friendship. You need your partner to respect the passion and time you're willing to dedicate to the relationship–but only if they're worthy of your time.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Most Sagittarius signs value their freedom above all, so it can be hard to pin them down in relationships. In order to truly cater to a Sagittarius' needs, both partners must be equally open and willing to express their emotions freely, which is sometimes easier said than done.
Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 19)
Capricorns are natural born professionals, equipped with serious qualities that can occasionally intimidate the unworthy. They can be hard to win over, but if a real suitor comes calling, they're totally up for commitment.
While astrology should probably not be the basis of your relationship, knowing a little more about your star sign can provide you with a little extra insight, or at the very least, a first date icebreaker.
