Star bright, starlight, the first star I see tonight is an…Aries? Perhaps. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, which is comprised of 12 astrological signs. Each sign has its own personality traits, turn-offs, turn-ons, and specific ways they want and need to be loved and courted. So, how do you get the attention of all 12 archetypes? Astrologist, Danielle Mercurio, shares the best zodiac sign dates to help you woo each sign.
Best Zodiac Sign Dates
Aries (Mar 21st-Apr 20th)
We start with the baby of the zodiac — Aries. Aries’ motto is “I Am” so they like to be front and center. If you’re looking to date a ram, play on their “love for the fast-paced,” says Danielle. A date to “a music festival or taking a DJ class together” may tickle their fancy.
Taurus (Apr 21st-May 20th)
Taurus are known to be homebodies. It’s not farfetched to “spend the day browsing through restoration hardware” with your bull, Mercurio suggests. “Go to an open house or a walking tour of a city,” she adds, and your stubborn Taurean will be yours for the taking.
Gemini (May 21st-Jun 20th)
The best zodiac sign date for the twins involves activity and conversation. Gemini’s love mental stimulation. Much like Aries, they thrive in social settings and have a young spirit. “Go old school with a day of mini-golf or drag car racing, or find a local carnival,” Mercurio adds. “Anything to bring out their inner child.”
Cancer (June 21st-Jul 22nd)
Crabs can’t live without the great outdoors! That’s why “an ideal date would be walking along the ocean or lakeside,” Danielle says. If you’ve known them long enough (Cancers can be very cautious) take them on a camping or glamping date. If you try “anything that feels non-material or showy” it might melt their crabby Cancerian hearts.
Leo (Jul 23rd-Aug 22nd)
A fire sign, Leo’s love to laugh and revel in the spotlight. A great date would be “a night at a comedy show followed by drinks at their favorite local hangout,” says Danielle. “Leo’s love going to spots where they are known by the staff.” Cause all the attention is on them!
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22nd)
The intellectual Virgo is all about the good life and they love to experience cultural treats. “Check out a tapas restaurant or go on a winery tour,” advisesMercurio. They can revel in culture while showing off their smarts.
Libra (Sep 23rd-Oct 22nd)
Ruled by Venus, Libras are visual creatures and love beauty. To woo them, you must “wear your best outfit.” Or else you’ll lose cool points. Then, “hit up a hot club or lounge.” Want something more intimate? Take them to a place where you can “enjoy stimulating conversation and friendly debate and banter.”
Scorpio (Oct 23rd-Nov 21st)
Intense by nature, Scorpios like building an intimate connection. Leave the over-the-top date antics for a Libra or Leo and “opt for a healthy dinner at home, complete with candles/good music, and Netflix,” Danielle proposes. You’ll be chilling in no time.
Sagittarius (Nov 22nd-Dec 21st)
Sagittarius’ love anything loud and to be part of a crowd. Spontaneous, they’ll be gung-ho for an adventurous date night. “Try indoor rock climbing or mountain biking” to impress your archer.
Capricorn (Dec 22nd-Jan 19th)
Competitive, Capricorns love a challenge. They also may want to try something new instead of the same-old dinner and drinks date night routine. Danielle suggests going out “for a night of bowling or hitting up a game night at the local pub.” That will get the goats’ competitive juices flowing and keep things interesting.
Aquarius (Jan 20th-Feb 18th)
The most friend-loving sign of the zodiac, Aquarius shines when venturing out in life and taking things in stride. The best zodiac sign dates for the water bearer include a street fair or a beer garden. A dinner party is also a good fit as Aquarius enjoys conversation and meeting new and interesting people.
Pisces (Feb 19th-Mar 20th)
The often sensitive Pisces loves a day filled with art and creativity. The dreamers of the zodiac benefit from a date to a museum or a pottery class. Want to get even more zen? “Check out a yoga or meditation event,” recommends Danielle. The last sign of the zodiac may just share his hopes, dreams, and heart with you.
