The Love Language Of Every Zodiac Sign
The need for romantic love is a basic dream. And when it comes to sparking the spark in your romantic relationships, knowing what your partner likes can do wonders. It gives you insight into what really impresses your partner, what makes them feel special, and what draws them more towards you.
In this respect, the knowledge that the zodiac signs make for it is strong. We show you the love language of the zodiac signs and how it affects their relationships the most. Astrological information like this can help form more compatible relationships that last longer and, in many cases, also help you avoid unsuitable partners.
Psychologically, love and affection are the next things humans crave once they have found their basic needs of food, water and shelter. A recent study suggests that romantic love can be inherently addictive!
“By nature, we’re all addicted to love…which means we want it, seek it, and have a hard time not thinking about it.” We need attachment to survive and we instinctively seek attachment, especially romantic attachment. [But there’s nothing dysfunctional about wanting love.”
– Author Ann Smith, an American therapist specializing in healthy relationships. Quoted from Sarah Berry (2013)
what is love language
The term “love language” was coined by Dr. Gary Chapman, marriage counselor and author, in his book series The Five Love Languages. According to him, we express and receive our love through the following 5 languages:
1. Words of Affirmation
Saying and hearing words of appreciation is important. In a romantic relationship, it’s important to hear and say the words “I love you.” Offensive, rude language, on the other hand, leaves deep wounds and is not easily forgotten.
2. Acts of Service
“Love isn’t what you say, love is what you do.” As this quote suggests, an active, supportive partner is always greatly appreciated. “Can I help you?” are magic words that make us more loving towards our partners.
3. Giving gifts
A gift makes your partner something very special! It shows how much you care for someone and the attention and effort that goes into the gift will leave a lasting impression. Forgetting birthdays and anniversaries is not acceptable.
4. Quality time
We feel valued when we get our partner’s undivided attention. This also includes distraction-free time in private, away from phones and laptops.
5. Physical touch
We are all “touchy” by nature. We love to hug, hold hands, pat each other on the back, love and experience other forms of physical closeness. However, physical abuse is unforgivable.

Aries are self-reliant and eager, they are daredevils and natural leaders. The love language of this zodiac sign is to take your time and say nice words. They love being valued and made to feel important. To get her attention, shower her with compliments, surprise her with small gifts, and most importantly, praise her accomplishments.
What really makes them happy is when Bae spends time with them that’s filled with fun activities like a car show, an art show, or a picnic in the park. The penchant for praise goes both ways – as they are happy to accept, Aries are also good listeners who appreciate the good qualities of others.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Preferred Love Languages: Physical touch and gifts
It’s no surprise that Taurus love , cuddles, and hugs more than anything! After all, they are the most sensual of all the zodiac signs!

In fact, the physical expression of love is crucial to a healthy relationship with Taurus people.
Aside from their penchant for intimacy, they also have a materialistic streak and love giving and receiving gifts. Make sure you choose something exquisite that suits her refined tastes. But you don’t have to break your bank because they’d rather have everything from you, both mentally and physically.
3. Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

When you are with a Gemini, you should give them your full attention. Being busy with your phone or Netflix while they chat with you is a big NO!

4. Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Preferred love languages: service and quality time
Cancers are sensitive, intuitive and very emotional souls that can be very moody at times. They are prone to insecurities and anxiety, which can be resolved if you spend a lot of time with them. They feel loved when you show them how important they are in your life. Yes, they can be clingy at times, but they have a heart of pure gold. They are caring, have tons of energy and love you unconditionally.
The downside to their emotional nature is that they aren’t always practical and can help you with day-to-day activities like housework and other tasks that are more action-oriented.

If you’re in a relationship with a Leo, you can expect them to spoil you with compliments and gifts, but know that they expect similar gestures from you too! Surprise gifts, maybe something big, or simple things like flowers and chocolates will win their hearts.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos are the organizers, perfectionists and planners among humans. If you know a Virgo well or are dating them, you will agree that Virgos don’t like clutter. They have their day planned and are trying their best to go through with it.
Although they always have the will to get everything done, human constraints such as time and energy sometimes prevent them from doing so. They hate it, but that’s exactly why they need someone to watch over them and volunteer to run errands for them. Small chores like cleaning the house weekly while they’re busy with another project or picking up groceries can secretly melt their hearts. They may not be able to admit it, but for them, helping you is a sign of caring and they appreciate it.
Virgos have an innate dream of helping others, and that means they are always willing to do things for their partners and make them feel comfortable and cared for. They are mysterious and reserved, which is exactly why you need to be intimate with them to know how beautiful they really are.

Create a luxurious experience and pamper them with things that look right – this can be a full-body experience for them, and they’re likely to feel attached to the giver.
All Libras want is a lover who understands them. If your choice aligns with their mood and aesthetic sensibilities, it’s a sign that you see them for who they really are. They don’t have to be expensive gifts, but something thoughtful that suits her mood, such as a painting or a bouquet of flowers, is enough to melt her heart.
Since Libras have a strong romantic streak, they naturally look forward to spending time with their partner almost every day.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Such quality gifts are the perfect way to earn you a place in their hearts because every time they use it, they will fondly remember the gift giver.
On the surface, Capricorns are reserved, quiet, and serious people, but that doesn’t mean they’re unemotional. They are just practical with their feelings. Yes, they don’t get into a relationship that easily, but once they commit, they make it their priority to make it work.
11. Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

This means that if you plan a great vacation and go on adventures with them that they can remember for a lifetime, they will adore you. For them, experiences, not material possessions, are the most important currency in life.
They will never say it, but they like it when their partners understand their tendency to escape into their dream world and attach them to reality when necessary. Therefore, there are bonus points for anyone who campaigns for them. They need someone who will show up unprompted and willing to help them with mundane tasks and also to deal with the abundance of emotions they experience on a daily basis.
