Everyone expresses their feelings differently, particularly when they're in love or involved in a romantic relationship. That's why it can be so hard to figure out whether someone has a crush on you. But you may be able to use astrology to discern if the object of your affection is feeling the love right back. You can glean a lot from how each zodiac sign expresses love, and you may even be able to even use astrology to find out how good your potential paramour is in bed, how great they are at making out, or if you're even compatible beyond the physical realm.
Maybe you're already in a relationship and want to know if your partner is coming close to saying "I love you." Perhaps you've been lusting over a friend, and you want to see if they reciprocate your attraction. Whatever the case may be, you'll learn a lot by brushing up on how different zodiac signs act when they're in love. Once you know the basics, find more love advice in The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need, which looks at the emotional needs and inner life of an individual by examining its history and mythology of their sign.
Even though Aries is the youngest sign in the zodiac, they're the most old-fashioned in the way they show their love. If you catch an Aries's eye, they're going to court you in a very traditional way: they want to spend a lot of time with their partners and expect the same in return. It's important for an Aries to remember to take time for themselves to avoid suffocating their partner with attention and to work in a little "me time," which is necessary for this independent sign.
Aries pair well with most signs in the short term, but in the long term, this sign often requires a partner who understands their emotional outbursts and has lots of patience.
If you're into a Taurus, you might be the last to know if they reciprocate those feelings. A Taurus will tell everyone else they're into someone before they ever tell the actual object of their affections. Tauruses may seem composed and put together on the outside, but on the inside they're hopeless romantics searching for a stable, sensitive partner. They tend to be kind, but kindness does not equal weakness, and a Taurus certainly has standards for their beau.
Creating a comfortable, stable home and relationship with a partner is incredibly important to this sign; while some may find this quality boring, Tauruses see adventure in stability.
Geminis have a reputation for being flighty, but once they find the right match, they value the adventure they find within a relationship. Once they commit to a partner, they're incredibly selfless and generous people. Geminis are naturally charming and sociable; they love making other people happy, and that extends to their romantic partners tenfold.
Geminis want to share experiences with new lovers and appreciate a little variety in a relationship. They may not be very in touch with their emotions, but once a Gemini trusts you, they'll open up.
Cancers are very emotional people, and they take romance pretty seriously. More than anything, Cancers desire a trustworthy mate who's down to go out with them but also curl up on the couch. This sign is empathetic and highly in tune with other's emotions, but they're temperamental—they require a partner who understands their mood swings. Cancers may have a lot of crushes, but they're sincere about falling in love.
Water and Earth signs tend to offer Cancers the stability they need, while Fire signs may prove a little risky.
