I’ve always been fascinated by the notion of star signs, and I’m not the only one if Tyrese’s ‘Signs of Love Makin’ is anything to go by. Now let me be clear, I don’t really go for the whole Mystic Meg, rubbing her crystal ball and telling me what misfortune awaits me. (Although if you do like to get a daily dose of what the stars have in store, then continue to do you boo). The thing I enjoy about the Zodiac is reading my personality profile. And yes, I am also that girl who’ll google a crushes sign to see if we’re compatible (usually not, not that I’ve ever let that stop me). So for anyone who’s interested prepare for a run down on the Sun signs in LOVE.
21 March – 20 April
The first sign of the Zodiac is ruled by the planet Mars, incidentally Aries is also the name of the ancient Greek God of war and Mars was the Roman God of war (I bet you didn’t know you’d be getting a history lesson along with your zodiac) which is fitting as if you’ve ever met an Aries you’ll know they love to argue. These fire signs are passionate, energetic and competitive so if you catch the eye of an Aries you will KNOW about it, They’re also adventurous and impulsive and their bravery is inspiring.
How to attract an Aries?
Aries are independent and enjoy a challenge. They also want a partner whom they can respect so if you can hold your own and not let them railroad you while also letting them win sometimes (their competitive nature needs it) you’ll peak their interest.
If you’re an Aries looking for love and you want the stars to be your guide then the potential rice to your peas are Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius or Aquarius.
20 April – 21 May
Taurus is ruled by Venus the planet (and Goddess) of love and beauty. This earth sign is super romantic and their love language is receiving gifts (luckily, they’re just as good at giving) they’re also committed to the pursuit of physical pleasure. Like their symbol (the bull) Taurus people are steadfast and can be immovable in their opinions. Taureans are built for partnerships, steady and reliable they’re in it for the long haul. You’ll know a Taurus likes you when they shower you with gifts, affection, time and attention.
How to attract a Taurus?
Taureans value honesty above all else, they take their time building trust so the best thing you can do to win their affection is call when you say you will and saddle up for the slow burn, but once that fire is ignited, boy will that motha***** burn!
If you’re a Taurus looking for love, the groundnut to your garri could be Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, or Pisces.
21 May – 21 June
This air sign is ruled by Mercury the planet of communication and it shows, as Gemini’s are the social butterflies of the zodiac. Experts at communication, these skills allow them to get on with most people. Intelligent and interesting there’s never a dull moment with a Gemini around. However, their charming, flirtatious and indecisive natures may make it seem as though they’ll be hard to pin down (and they can be), but to paraphrase Usher, Lil’ John and Ludacris if they find a “Lover and Friend” who matches their intellect and energy, they’ll stay loyal.
How to attract a Gemini?
Gemini’s want fun and adventure, intellectual stimulation and an experimental sex life, they also need their space so if you can provide all those things and not get offended when they temporarily pull away you may be onto a winner.
If you’re a Gemini looking for love, you may find the ackee to your saltfish in Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius.
21 June – 23 July
Highly intuitive the crab of the Zodiac is ruled by the Moon. Emotional and nurturing, cancers are one of the most generous signs of the Zodiac you’ll find, however they expect just as much generosity in return. Gentle and naturally loyal you may not find these homebodies far away from their families. You’ll know your Cancer love interest is invested in you if they cook for you. Like their fellow water signs Cancers can be very sensitive.
How to attract a Cancer?
Just like the tortoise slow and steady wins the race, Cancers are not that into casual encounters and they can be quite conservative so try some old school ‘pitching woo’ tactics and this crab may just snap you up with their claws.
If you’re a Cancer looking for love and want to find the jollof to your rice look for Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio or Pisces.
23 July- 23 August
Just like the Lion Leo’s are natural born leaders. Ruled by the sun these fire signs burn just as bright, they also believe that all of the planets revolve around them. Generous, warm-hearted and social it’s hard not to be drawn to them. Their self-confidence and bravery means these high achievers always reach their goals. They’ll never agree to do something they don’t want to so you’ll know a Leo likes you if they clear their schedule for you.
How to attract a Leo?
Leos love to be admired. That is all! Seriously though admiration, devotion and attention are what the Leo expects but they’ll definitely return the favour.
If you’re a Leo looking for love then perhaps the jerk to your chicken is Aries, Gemini, Libra, or Sagittarius.
23 August – 23 September
Organised and practical these earth signs are ruled by mercury. These hardworking perfectionists are inspired by beauty and everything in their lives must be in order and picture perfect. Methodical and intelligent Virgo’s love learning new things. You’ll know they’re into you if they organise your lingerie or arrange your sex toys by type, size and colour!
How to attract a Virgo?
Logical Virgos use facts to make decisions so if you really want to pursue a Virgo be their friend first as before they’ll even consider you they need to know you and feel safe around and you. Also don’t ever rearrange their stuff!
If you’re a Virgo looking for love then maybe the plantain to your fish will be Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio or Capricorn.
23 September – 23 October
The reason the symbol for Libra’s is the scale is because they’re peaceful and fair, dedicated to justice and equality. This air sign is ruled by Venus (the planet of love and beauty) and they have a love for the finer things in life. Gifted at bringing harmony to most situations Libras make those around them feel comfortable. They’re happiest when they’re in a relationship, and because Libra’s are so nice it may be hard to tell if they’re interested in you specifically, but if you pay close attention you’ll notice them being extra nice to those they love.

Scorpio’s are known for their intensity which can be captivating but also intimidating. This water sign is ruled by Pluto, mysterious and secretive, until you get to know them they can appear to be stush but beneath the hard exterior you’ll find a passionate, emotional and loyal individual. The most sensual sign of the Zodiac, intimacy and deep connections are very important to a Scorpio.

Naturally suspicious Scorpios can very quickly develop trust issues so the best thing you can do is be honest with them and avoid making them question you, as one of the most intensely emotional signs being open emotionally is also important when moving to a Scorpio.

How to attract a Sagittarius?

If you’re a Sagittarius looking for love and you want to find the fufu to your soup then find Leo, Aries, Aquarius or Libra.
22 December – 20 January
Ruled by Saturn this earth sign is notoriously hard working, responsible and a master at self-control. Everything will be in order when a Capricorn is around. Natural rule followers they have very traditional values. Once they’re yours a Capricorn will be committed for life, although the least emotional of the Zodiac you’ll know a Capricorn likes you as they’ll work hard to provide you with the absolute best.

20 January – 19 February
Aquarians love to help others and have a strong commitment to social justice. These air signs are ruled by Uranus and are not the most traditional when it comes to romance. Independence and freedom are really important to an Aquarius. Although open minded and easy going they are determined when it comes to fighting for what they believe in.

19 February – 21 March
Selfless and compassionate this water sign is ruled by Neptune. Although they appear to be quiet they are deeply intuitive and able to pick up on the feelings of others. Pisces have a strong moral compass but aren’t judgemental of others. Because they’re so quiet it may be hard to tell if they like you at first but if they fall for you the hopeless romantic in them will love you deeply.
