The day of love is upon us, Valentine’s Day! Has Cupid shot you with its arrow?
You can use your Sun sign to tell you how you approach relationships, though if you want to be really thorough and on-target, also assess your Moon sign (your emotional needs and approach) and your Venus sign (the planet of love; this article on your Venus sign may be helpful).
Don’t know either of these? Go use the free birth chart generator to find them!
You may find you operate a little differently when you’re in a relationship versus when you’re single and mingling. The “relationship you” may be shown more accurately through your 7th house sign (go generate your birth chart if you don’t know that either!).
The 7th house rules committed relationships, so once you’ve got your partner, it kicks in (this article on 7th house signs may be helpful). You may find the Sun to be more accurate when you’re single and dating.

Now let’s go through each of the single and attached zodiac signs.
Love Horoscopes for the Signs, Single or Attached:
The single Aries is a hunter, someone who loves the game and the chase. You’re a great dater, and you likely have no shortage of potential suitors. You take a light-hearted approach to love and dating and don’t want to be too serious too fast. Look for someone who can keep up with your energy and shares your enthusiasm for life.
You’re not likely going to do very well with someone who is clingy and too emotional. Someone who can let loose is right up your alley. Maybe try meeting someone while rock climbing or parasailing!
The attached Aries brings that trademark Aries energy and enthusiasm into their relationship. You want to enjoy your time with your partner and can spice things up routinely. Make time to do something fun together, and bonus points when it’s something physical (use up that energy!). Go for a hike, go camping, travel, or just play a game of paintball!
You can be remarkably committed once you settle on someone, but you do need to work on being more open and making sure you’re being attentive. Focus on your partner and not just yourself.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Aries: anything that keeps you physically active and engaged.

The single Taurus is slow to warm up, preferring to take its time in all matters, including the heart. You’re someone who doesn’t want to rush. But you are also very sensual, which can attract lots of interested parties to you, and you can fully take advantage of the physical fun.
Once you’re with someone, you’re all the way, so be fun and no strings attached while you have the chance. You likely need someone who will do the instigating since you can be a little cautious about making the first move.
The attached Taurus is as loyal as they come (mostly!). You don’t care too much for change, so once you’re with someone, you’re with them. You’re fairly comfortable with commitment, though it can take some time for you to get there. After the long process of getting there, you’re usually not interested in moving from that place.
You may have a tendency to let things get stale though, so be open to changing things up every so often to keep that from happening. Surprise your partner (and yourself!).
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Taurus: something with the senses (couple’s massage or spa day, concert, an exhibit, and of course, anything with food!)

The single Gemini loves to date and can keep those who date them on their toes. Your variety of interests can make you a fascinating creature, and you can be pretty charming in conversation. The people you’re most likely to be interested in are the ones who can keep up with your mind, and that you find interesting as well. If you think they’re dull, you’re kicking them to the curb!
You may want to try meeting someone doing something that you enjoy so you have a mutual interest you can talk about (along with everything else!).
The attached Gemini likes to keep it fresh. You don’t care to let things become stagnant in your relationships (and may go running when they do). You can be open to experimenting with your partner and having new experiences you can talk about together.
You can be surprisingly romantic, and come up with all sorts of romantic scenes for your partner. But you can also be in your head a little too much sometimes, so make sure you’re connecting emotionally and physically, and not just letting the mind rule.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Gemini: something with a group so there’s plenty of conversation or something that stimulates the mind (like a thought-provoking film)

The single Cancer is focused on finding someone they can connect with emotionally. You crave emotional understanding with others, and you can be so nurturing and supportive and want that in return. You may be a little hesitant to pursue anything with anyone until you’re sure of the emotional connection.
Others can find your emotional maturation to be attractive, though you do have to watch for attracting those to you who are just looking for a mommy/daddy (no good!). The right person for you is someone who supports you emotionally and makes you feel secure.
The attached Cancer is incredibly supportive of their partner. You want them to feel good all of the time, and you’ll do what you can to make that happen. You can help build them up and keep things steady for them in the background so they can shine.
You can be romantic, attentive, and tend to the emotional needs of your partner and your relationship, but there may be times when you ignore yourself, your own wants and needs, and end up feeling a little empty. Make sure your partner is giving you as much support and you give them.

The single Leo is the dating professional. This sign rules dating! So as a Leo, you know how the game goes. You enjoy dating lots of people (maybe all at once), and want the attention you get from all of these romantic entanglements. You’re warm, fun, friendly, and charming, and people can gravitate toward that.
When you’re not in a relationship, you likely just want to enjoy yourself and be carefree. You can throw yourself so fully into a relationship that you need to bask in the dating glow before it’s gone.
The attached Leo is incredibly loyal (the loyal lion!). When you’re with someone, you really don’t want anyone else. You can give your heart fully, and you can make the relationship warm and happy. You can spend time at home lounging with your partner and enjoy it just as much as going out on the town and being glamorous together.
You can be pretty generous, and sometimes this can mean you give more than you get – a lot more! So make sure your partner isn’t someone who steals your light and keeps you from shining. They should be someone who loves your light and encourages you to shine brighter.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Leo: one part drama (going somewhere glitzy or doing something fab-u-lous, like out of a movie) and one part comfort (have the pj’s waiting at the end of the night with some cake)

The single Virgo is perhaps the shyest of the zodiac signs. You generally don’t want to make any moves unless you’re absolutely certain the person wants you to, so you’re more likely to be hunted instead of doing the hunting. You may not care very much for the “game” of dating and can be just as well alone. When you’re single, you may be very, very single!
You need someone who is more open to showing how they feel about you so you can be comfortable showing how you feel about them. Someone who can get you to open up more is perfect for you. Also, ditch the list (you know you have one!).
The attached Virgo can be the most attentive of the zodiac signs. You pay attention to the details in every area of your life, including your relationships. Paying attention can be the way you express love and affection for someone. Does your partner complain about the annoying dripping faucet in the bathroom? You get right to fixing, and probably won’t even say anything. You don’t need the attention and feel good just knowing you did it.
This can lead you to be in relationships where you’re always trying to fix things though, and perfectionism can get the better of you. Try to learn to be happy with things as they are. Minor issues in relationships don’t mean they’re wrong, just normal!
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Virgo: something quiet where the two of you can talk and give undivided attention to one another

The single Libra is a charmer. (and often a heartbreaker, ha!) There’s something beautiful and effortless about you, even if not in a conventional way, and people can be drawn to you because of it. You have a way of being with someone and making it feel like it’s just the two of you. You like making people feel special, which makes them like you a lot!
Even if you date a lot, you’re likely someone who doesn’t care too much for being single (though you may not project that). In your heart, you like being attached, so dating for you tends to be for the singular purpose of meeting a partner, not for fun.
The attached Libra places a lot of value in having a partner. You may feel that you’re at your best when you’re with someone, and that makes your relationships super important to you. You can also be very supportive of your partner, and encourage them to reach new heights in their life. You can be a great cheerleader.
The best partner for you is someone who gives you as much as you give them. There needs to be mutual respect and admiration for the relationship to thrive. When you have that, you can feel powerful, like you can mold the world in your hands. It helps you feel balanced, and you can strive to maintain balance, peace, and harmony in your relationship.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Libra: something where you have to dress up and show each other off
The single Scorpio is magnetic and intoxicating. You can draw someone to you with one (brooding) look. People may be drawn to you in ways they (or you) don’t understand. You can be passionate and intense, and want to make things serious, but this can be a little too much too fast sometimes. Slow it down, and let the fire build to get the intensity you’re looking for.
You’re likely drawn to those you feel are mysterious, riddles for you to solve, and they keep you interested for some time. Just make sure their mystery isn’t that they’re terrible for you (serial killers, out!).
The attached Scorpio is totally, completely devoted to their partner. You don’t want anyone else, can’t think of anyone else, and only have eyes for your partner. This loyalty can make them feel confident and believe in your feelings. If you don’t go overboard, anyway!
You can bring passion to your relationship, and you can be willing to work on issues that come up. You’re a problem solver by nature, and you’re not afraid of climbing into the dark depths of the relationship if it means making it better. You need someone who is willing to do that with you, and keeps you from getting lost in the darkness.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Scorpio: something taboo, or maybe one of those escape room games
The single Sagittarius is the super bachelor. Everyone knows Sagittarius is the eternal bachelor! Sagittarius absolutely loves the game (this is the Archer, after all). You love the chase, the thrill of it all, and being attached may seem like a nightmare to some of you. Dating is where you’re comfortable, and you can be passionate, interesting, and fun.
Keeping it light is a-okay with you, and no strings attached can be your mantra. That just leaves you free to have all of the earthly experiences you desire without any person or responsibility to hold you back.
The attached Sagittarius is the hardest to pin down. You don’t want to feel held back, so the right partner for you is someone who doesn’t do that much. They should be someone who is confident enough to let you wander and roam. At the same time, you should show them respect for that, and show your loyalty.
Once you do truly commit, you can be a wonderful partner to have. You bring fun and adventure into your relationships, share your experiences with your partner, and always want to make them smile.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Sagittarius: traveling somewhere new (or faking it with some exotic cuisine)

The single Capricorn has an earthy confidence that can be incredibly attractive to others. You’re someone who knows exactly what you want and how to get it, and that can also be true in dating. You may focus on those you respect, admire, look up to, or maybe attract those who feel that way about you.
You’re a goal-oriented person, so you may set some dating goals that you’d like to meet or goals for the people that you date. This can suck out some of the fun though, so try not to let that take over.
The attached Capricorn is committed and responsible. You’ll take care of things in your relationship, and make sure responsibilities are being met. Your partner doesn’t need to worry about these things since you’ve got them covered, but the best person for you is someone who helps you with those responsibilities instead of letting you shoulder them alone.
Being in a relationship can be an excellent situation for you since it allows you to feel settled in your personal life, which frees you up to pursue external or professional goals with zeal and focus. You may find you accomplish more with the right partner.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Capricorn: something that lets you hobnob with important people
The single Aquarius can be fun yet a little elusive. You’re someone who wants to try new things all of the time, and this can mean you also like meeting lots of new, different people. Your roster of past exes may be pretty eclectic! But that’s what you need to be interested in someone. Something about them needs to be very different from whatever you think of when you hear the word, Normal.
You can keep things light, and likely avoid using standard terms for a while. Ultimately, the best person for you will be someone you think of as your best friend. Friends are governed by this sign, after all!
The attached Aquarius can be surprisingly loyal. As much as you may date around when single, you likely have no interest in that when attached, and have a hard time letting go of someone. You can fantasize about the future you’ll have together, and want to achieve your dreams together. You can push your partner to pursue their dreams, and hope they return the favor.
You may not be the most passionate person, so a good fit for you is someone that can bring that out of you. There’s a fire somewhere inside of you, so let them light it up!
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Aquarius: something experimental or that you’ve never heard of before, or with some friends
The single Pisces may fall a LOT. You have a big heart and lots of feelings, and you can fall in love a zillion times in your life, even if only in the dreamworld in your head sometimes. You’re super sensitive, compassionate, and want to be there for anyone you care about. This may mean you attract some emotional vampires though, so try to keep your distance from them.
The best person for you is someone who has a gentle touch with your feelings and is a bit protective of you. You’ll bring the romance and go big if you feel they’re worth it.
The attached Pisces is incredibly sacrificing for their partner. You want to do anything they need you to and can go above and beyond. You’re so supportive and loving, romantic and sweet. You can feel your best when you’re with someone, but this can lead you to fall into some bad relationships with bad people, so don’t be so uncomfortable with being single that you attach yourself to anyone.
Your biggest danger in relationships tends to be losing yourself in them. Maintain a solid sense of self to avoid that, and choose a partner that respects healthy boundaries.
Ultimate Valentine’s Day date for Pisces: something super romantic, sappy, think lots of roses and love songs and champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries
