We all say “I love you” differently. Sometimes it’s through the things we do, or the things we choose to keep inside. How do you express your love?
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Like Aladdin an Aries wants to show you the world. They care about adventure and about having an exciting life — by bringing you along they are showing you they want you to be a part of this life. They demonstrate their love with actions, the acts of including you in their busy social calendars.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
A Taurus in love does two things: they open up to you, and they feed you good food. It’s pretty easy to tell where you stand with a Taurus because they don’t play games. If you’re in their inner circle, they are open and friendly — if you’re not they can be cold and closed off. Pair this with their love of good food and you’ll end up with an ‘I love you’ that looks a lot like wining and dinning (or just pizza and good sex).
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
Geminis are notoriously flighty so it can be intimidating to be in a relationship with them, wondering if they’ll wake up tomorrow and feel just as passionately about some other guy or girl. But when they’re in love, they like to make their passions all about the person they’re in love with. They’ll want to sign up for a cooking class together, learn to meditate together, or manufacture soaps to sell on Etsy — whatever it is they make you part of it.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
Cancers love love, so if they love you you’ll know it. They’ll say ‘I love you.’ They’ll touch you. They’ll make your favorite breakfast and bring it to you in bed. You will generally feel like you’re a special person to them, and they are going out of their way to nurture you and show you that you are loved.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leos are confident and charismatic, but in such a subtle way you might not immediately notice that this is true. When they’re in love, these use these talents on their partner. Notice how your Leo acts around neutral people — like acquaintances or a customer service person — and then notice how they act towards you. Leo’s say ‘I love you’ with charm and with putting on a bit of a show that makes their partner realize how lucky they are.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
A Virgo won’t say ‘I love you’ — they’ll just kind of hope you figure it out. What they will do is try to make your life better. They’d rather organize your parent’s high-maintenance 50th anniversary party than have a sappy word cross their lips. They care about you, they’re just bad at expressing it with actual words.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
When a Libra is in love, they make you the center of their social circle. Gifted with people, this is the ultimate prize for a Libra. You’re their center of attention, the person the show off — and the one they come home to. They want everything in their social life to be a harmonious — and all of it to revolve around the one they love.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
A Scorpio says ‘I love you’ by doing what they do best, fighting. They’ll become extremely protective of you. Suddenly, someone insulting you is as bad as someone insulting them and they’re willing to take a stand to make it right.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
A Sagittarius says ‘I love you’ by making you laugh. Having fun is one of their favorite things in the world, so they want you to experience it. They’ll ham it up for you at every opportunity and make it their mission to keep a smile on your face.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
It may sound counterproductive, but a Capricorn will be pickier with someone they love than with someone they don’t care about. Capricorns are particular individuals (but only because they know best) so when they love someone, they want that person to be the best that they can be. They’ll push you towards career advancement, help you look your best when you go out together, and generally try to morph you into the most put-together version of yourself you can be.
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
Aquarians love to understand the feelings of others, even if the ideas behind them seem alien. But they have big hearts and are selfless, even if they aren’t mushy about saying it all the time. If they love you, your Aquarius will demonstrate how valuable you are by acts of service. They’ll take your car to be serviced, walk your dog, install your wifi — it’s a show, don’t tell method. They move slowly in love, but they’ll get there.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Like Cancers, Pisces revel in the feeling of being in love. Unlike Cancers, instead of focusing on the other person, they’ll internalize the feeling and weave it into their inner life. They’ll fill diary pages with writing about you if they’re a writer, if their craft is music they’ll write songs about you. They won’t be knocking your door down for praise with what they’ve done so you’ll have to look closely and pay attention to when they use you as their muse.
