Have you noticed that a lot of people compliment you on one particular characteristic or personality trait?
Maybe it’s your charisma or your curiosity, your intellect or your thirst for adventure. For those of us who follow astrology, it all comes down to one explanation.
The quality people find most attractive about you based on your sign will differ depending on whether you’re the dual-personality Gemini or the harmony-seeking Libra, or one of the other 10 signs of the zodiac.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
People close to Audrey Hepburn (a fellow Taurus!) said she used to only own “one skirt, one blouse, one pair of shoes, and a beret, but she had 14 scarves.” Style doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to be great, and people find your aesthetic completely alluring.
One of Taurus’s leading qualities is their high degree of sensuality. Their affectionate and grounded ways can be very appealing to a partner. Tauruses also bring a sense of calm and stability to a relationship.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Curiosity rules your sign. You may not always get into the music or niche films your date likes, but people love how you always give their interests a try. Even if you know you’ll probably suck at the newest Mortal Kombat game, your romantic date finds your enthusiasm bewitching.
Geminis are known for their changing personality, but that means things are never dull. They can be fun and sociable, or they can be completely serious. Whatever the mood, they always project their current persona in a way that’s expressive and engaging. A Gemini is also curious by nature, willing to explore all the world has to offer.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
There are no politics of “wait three days to text back” with Cancer; you hate the so-called “thrill of the chase.” When you’re feeling someone, you let them know right away – and if you don’t, you’re straight with them. This is so refreshing in a world where ghosting someone is somehow an acceptable way to end a relationship.
Some people are afraid to get in touch with their feelings, but not Cancers. When dating a sensitive crab, you’ll be sure to get plenty of emotional honesty and empathy. They’re also very loyal, making them a partner you can trust to understand and deal with whatever mood you may be experiencing.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
No need for pick-up lines here, Leo. With your exceptional social skills, you can talk to anyone and get to know the real person. You don’t always meet everyone in the room, so when you do choose to talk to someone, you make that person feel special.
Leos are the life of the party – they are able to engage, joke around, and flirt with just about anybody. That means people are drawn to them… but it also means there’s often people around them at all times. If you’re hoping for some alone time with a Leo, it might be more difficult. Still, the fact that so many people find the Leo alluring may be an attractive trait to some.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
Let’s face it: smart girls are sexy, and Virgo tends to be one of the most intelligent. Since you’re ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, you’re able to make connections quickly and notice details that others wouldn’t.
If a Virgo is interested in a particular subject – or person – they will focus on it and learn about it as much as possible. They’re also incredibly analytical and have great problem solving skills. If you have an issue you need to work out, it can help to know you have a Virgo in your corner. A Virgo will see the best in a partner and do everything in their power to help their partner achieve greatness.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Some people try so hard to look like they’re not trying too hard, but Libra isn’t one of them. You have a natural elegance that beguiles even the most stoic love interest. People tend to look at you with a double-take when you walk by them.
Libras are incredibly kind and always considering the feelings of others. Represented by the scales, Libras are all about fairness and balance and are generally not afraid to admit when they’re wrong. They’re also big into commitment, so when a relationship with a Libra is right, it’s likely to last.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
Comedy is subjective, but the way Scorpio can deliver a joke can make anyone laugh. Your social charm and sense of humor put people at ease. When people feel comfortable, they laugh more instinctively – and who doesn’t want a good laugh on their first date?
There is just something about Scorpios that is incredibly alluring – they have a certain je nais sais quoi, if you will. Their intense and mysterious nature can draw potential romantic partners in like a moth to a flame. Their passionate, dark side can be incredibly attractive as well.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
Going to the same old restaurant on every date is not your style. You love adventure, and your date loves the way you surprise him. A picnic when the weather’s nice? Sure! Try out an escape room? Go for it! Enlist in a trial boxing class? Well, if you insist! Variety is the spice of life.
Sagittarius have an innate sense of adventure. They love exploring and traveling, and they enjoy having a wanderlust partner-in-crime. Archers always see the bright side of things, which can turn even the hardest of skeptics into dreamers. Their positive energy is infectious and captivating.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
People like to feel wanted, but they tend to be turned off when a girl throws herself at them. A Capricorn is a classy lady, ruled by self-respect and dignity. You know your standards and you won’t break them for anyone. When a woman knows when to say “no,” her “yes, please” is all the more alluring.
Capricorns are about as reliable and dependable as they come. On one hand, this may (initially) sound a bit dull. On the other hand, if your sick of drama and nightmarish Tinder dates, the sea goat is the one for you. You can always count on a patient, grounded Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Aquarius marches to the beat of her own drum, and that makes her stand out amongst the sheep. When everyone else seems to have the same opinion (or no opinion at all!), you’ll speak up for your beliefs. Maybe you’re the only person who thinks The Dark Knight was overrated, or you think the mid-90s Batman films have merit. When a woman can intelligently articulate her point, people find that sexy.
The selfless Aquarius wants to do as much as possible to save the world. This means donating their energy and resources to any causes close to their heart. This also carries over into relationships, where they are good listeners who always want to assist their partners. As an Air sign, they are also fabulous conversationalists, so there will never be dead air between an Aquarius and their partner.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
You know those conversations that go until 3am? Pisces is a master of those all-night gabfests. You can connect with a person’s soul, helping him learn more about himself than he could have imagined. Physical attraction is fleeting, but spiritual connection means he can’t get you out of his head.
Pisces are full of empathy for any suffering around them. Your pain is their pain, so they will do all they can to help with comfort and compassion. Pisces are easily the most romantic of the zodiac, and they will do everything in their power to please their partners, including indulging wild fantasies.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
As a fire sign, Aries brings a signature light to the world. You’re enthusiastic, energetic, and eternally optimistic. Your positivity is infectious and everyone, romantic interests included, is excited when they’re around you.
Aries are frequently admired for their incredible boldness. Aries are natural leaders and have the confidence to take charge without any fear. The ram’s go-getting nature can be thrilling to a prospective partner. It’s a quality that makes people look up to them and can draw a lot of romantic attention.
