The best way to take the pressure off Valentine’s Day is either not participate or let the stars decide. But let’s be honest, that first option is no fun. So instead, leave your lover’s fate to the stars. This is your ideal Valentine based on your and their star signs!
Aquarius, January 20 – February 18
Valentine’s Day is on the cusp of Aquarius season so it’s no surprise these little water-bearers just love love. However, independence is your thing so the last thing you want is a partner who thinks it’s cuffing season 365 days a year. Signs that’ll value your free spirit and respects your alone time include Librans and Geminis.
Cupid’s pick: Libra and Gemini.
Pisces, February 19 – March 20
Pisces always struggle to make up their mind, so it’s no surprises you’ve gone online to find answers to your Valentine’s woes. Scorpios and Cancers both have strong empathetic traits and emotional sides to them, which is makes a dream connection. However, when in doubt, go for another Pisces – just don’t ever expect to make it to dinner. You’ll spend more time deciding where to eat than actually on the date.
Cupid’s pick: Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces.
Aries, March 21st – April 9th
Aries have the best luck when it comes to playing the field. You’re pretty much compatible with all the other signs. Your energy is best matched by Aquarians, Geminis, Leos or Sagittarians. However, steer clear of dating another Aries. You know you’ve got a stubborn streak so imagine timesing it by two. Yikes.
Cupid’s pick: Aquarius, Leo, Gemini and Sagittarius
Taurus, April 20 – May 20
Taurians need someone who will complement their focus and not get thrown off by their hardworking nature. You don’t need anyone who can’t handle you having one up on them in any aspect of life. The most secure and loyal signs are Virgo and Pisces – they’re also hard workers so you won’t butt heads often.
Cupid’s pick: Virgo and Pisces
Gemini, May 21 – June 20
Your dual personality (no shade) means you can get along with almost anybody. However, when it comes to love the signs you should swipe right on are Aquarius, Libra and other Geminis. Each of these air signs offers you a great connection and drama-free commitment, which TBH, as such social butterfly, you don’t have time for BS.
Cupid’s pick: Aquarius, Libra and Gemini
Cancer, June 21 – July 22
The ultimate romantics, Cancers are likely to couple up with anyone who so much as throws them a stolen glance. But, before swiping right en mass consider the fact Scorpians and Pisces have the most calming energy. As a fellow water sign, a Pisces will give you the most smooth-sailing relationship.
Cupid’s pick: Scorpio, Pisces
Leo, July 23 – August 22
We all know Leos live on the bolder side of life so you’re going to want to couple up with someone who can match that energy (or at least not get in the way of it). You know exactly what you want in a relationship and oooh boy we’d hate to be the person saying no to you. Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, and Aries are the signs that will most likely give you what you need in a relationship. They’ll have a deep admiration for your spirit and don’t mind the hard work.
Cupid’s pick: Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, and Aries
Virgo, August 23 – September 22
Hey, angel, looking for love? Start with your fellow earth signs, they’re practical and reasonable just like you. Capricorns are a great match for you, but they don’t easily let their walls down, so it might cause a bit of a chase. However, coupling up with a Taurus will keep your introverted side satisfied.
Cupid’s pick: Capricorn and Taurus
Libra, September 23 – October 22
Libras love a good old flirt so finding someone for Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be a problem for you. However, if you’re in it for the long haul you’re most likely to get along with Aquarians and Leos. You’ll sweep an Aquarian off their feet in no time but enjoy indulging with a Leo. Like Gemini, you also value the understanding you get from dating one of your own so don’t rule out a fellow Libra either.
Cupid’s pick: Aquarius, Leo & Libra
Scorpio, October 23 – November 21
Out of everything, Scorpios value loyalty over all else. Often that means pairing up with another Scorpio will serve you well, however, you can equally feed off the fearlessness of a Pisces.
Cupid’s pick: Scorpio and Pisces
Sagittarius, November 22 – December 21
Sagittarians are the luckiest in love. You’re compatible with the Leo, Aries, Aquarius, and Libra meaning you’re never out of options. Other signs are drawn to your fun-loving and adventurous spirit and will hype you up with the optimism you crave.
Cupid’s pick: Leo, Aries, Aquarius, and Libra
Capricorn, December 22 – January 19
Capricorns are never happy to settle for second-best, so keeping up with you is a challenge not all the signs can handle (I should know, I’m a Capricorn and my fiance says I’m very difficult). Not here for time wasters, Capricorns will get along with Pisces, Scorpios, Virgo, and Taurians all who offer the qualities you value most – loyalty and commitment.
Cupid’s pick: Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, and Taurus
