We’ve all heard the pickup line “what’s your sign?” Although this is a rather cliché way to get a date, there actually is merit in using the stars to find “the one” for you.
Did you know that astrological love compatibility is a real thing? Yes! There are certain zodiac signs that actually work together well, and some that don’t work together at all. There are even different ways to attract different zodiac signs when it comes to love.
So, how exactly might you attract a Capricorn? Or an Aries? We’ve got you covered.
How to Attract Your Soul Mate, Based on Their Zodiac Sign
As we mentioned, the way to go about attracting a Capricorn love interest and attracting an Aries love interest are really two completely different things.
What one zodiac sign loves and admires, the other may not appreciate at all. Let’s take a look at how the different signs look at love and companionship, and how to win over that someone special based on their zodiac sign.
How to Attract an Aries
Aries is a fiery and intense zodiac sign. If you plan to win over someone with this Sun sign, you better buckle up for a wild ride!
Don’t be timid when approaching an Aries for a date. Be confident when expressing your feelings for them, and layer on the compliments. When deciding where to go for a first date, you can’t go wrong with a sporting event. The constant action will keep them engaged and excited the entire time.
One thing to avoid is trying to dictate what Aries should or should not be doing. This won’t go over well, and you likely won’t get a second chance with them.
How to Attract a Taurus
When it comes to attracting a Taurus, you will have to be the one to make the first move. This zodiac sign tends to be slower when it comes to them making up their mind, and rather analytical when it comes to relationships. Thoughtfulness is something this sign appreciates, so if you are taking them out to dinner, make sure it is a top-notch, highly recommended restaurant with their favorite food.
Taurus is very concerned with comfort and security, and with that comes monetary security. If your date suspects that you are a poor money manager or that you don’t have a responsible head on your shoulders, they might be turned off.
Show that you genuinely enjoy their company as being aloof will drive them away. Make good, intelligent conversation, and you are sure to win over your Taurean love interest.
How to Attract a Gemini
Gemini is all about communication, philosophical thinking and great conversation. One of the most cerebral signs of the zodiac, you can quickly impress a Gemini mate with wit and wisdom. If you can come up with enough topic to discuss that they find interesting, you will have their attention all night!
If you find that your Gemini is flirtatious with others, don’t sweat it too much. Gemini is simply a social butterfly, and trying to clip their wings will not end well.

How to Attract a Cancer
Cancer is a rather vulnerable and sensitive sign. You must always be sincere when talking to your Cancer love interest, and do your best to be romantic. Walks along the beach, deep conversations about the future, and, of course, mentioning things you find attractive about them will win over this love interest.
Being crass or rude will get you nowhere when it comes to this union. Show your sensitive side! If this is something you’re not super comfortable with, a Cancer might not be the one for you.
How to Attract a Leo
Leo is another one of the more vivacious and fiery signs of the zodiac. To impress a Leo, you have to show that you enjoy things of quality. If you come across as being cheap, you won’t get too far with this Sun sign. When going out to dinner, spare no expense. Leo likes to travel in the first-class section.
A Leo just wants you to be yourself, so if they think you are being fake or disingenuous, they will not stick around for long.
How to Attract a Virgo
Virgo is reclusive and private by nature. When getting to know your Virgo, don’t be put off if they seem cold or uncaring at first. They simply have a bit of a harder shell that just needs to be cracked!
If you can respect that, they will respect you, and open up to you more quickly. Virgo is also extremely practical and down to earth, so trying to be flashy will turn them off quickly. They want you to be raw and real with them.

How to Attract a Libra
This zodiac sign is very intelligent by nature. If you show Libra that you appreciate this, and show that you also are intelligent about the things you are passionate about, you will easily win them over.
Intelligence equals respect here so study up before your next date!
How to Attract a Scorpio
Scorpio is a rather unpredictable zodiac sign, and also likes their privacy. When talking with a Scorpio love interest, you will need to listen intently to what they have to say. Faking it will not win you points here.
This sign also enjoys being in social situations, so don’t be afraid to surprise them with something fun and unique to do for a date night. Scorpio loves spontaneity, and the experience will mean far more to them than any gift ever could.
How to Attract a Sagittarius
Sagittarius loves the outdoors and talking about anything and everything that they find interesting. Strike up a conversation about current events, outdoor sports, or pets, and you will hold their attention for hours. You will know that you have a Sagittarius hooked when they said confiding in you, or asking you for advice.
What will turn a Sagittarius off faster than anything else is by infringing on their freedom or independence. This will have them running for the hills! If this is something that isn’t ideal for you in a partner, than a Sagittarius might not be the one for you.
That being said, you will always have fun and adventure with your Sagittarius lover, so live in the moment, just like they do.
How to Attract a Capricorn
Capricorn is a rather cautious sign of the zodiac, so earning their trust is a big part of their relationship compatibility. They love to listen and learn new things so if you have something new and interesting to discuss, or something amusing to add to the conversation, you will have them eating out of the palm of your hand.
Although this sign appreciates luxury, they are also very practical, and splurging on gifts to impress will only give the impression that you are financially irresponsible. This could set off red flags that you don’t respect the value of a dollar, which is a huge turn off for Capricorn.
One tip to be sure you take note of is always to be on time. Capricorn cannot stand tardiness and this will definitely start you off on the wrong foot!
How to Attract Aquarius
Aquarians are highly analytical, so it’s best to start off this relationship with some in-depth conversation. They also have many humanitarian interests, so showing your humanitarian side will surely grab their attention.
There are many, many things that Aquarians find to be fascinating. Don’t be surprised if the conversation jumps from one topic to the next, and make sure you can keep up.
One thing to avoid when dating an Aquarian is never to nag about their mistakes. Keep things lively and interesting and you will win over your Aquarian love interest.
How to Attract Pisces
When you consider your relationship with a Pisces partner, you need to be ready to discuss things of the mystical realm. Pisceans are known for their interest in the supernatural, spiritualism, astrology and things of this nature.
They make great listeners and are genuine in their replies.
Being very sentimental, Pisceans love things like birthdays and anniversaries so don’t miss any of those! They show a great appreciation for the arts as well, so a first date to an art exhibit will delight your Piscean date.
