What Your Zodiac Sign Says About The Way You Fall In Love

by Gigi Engle

It's no secret that the stars and the universe have a big impact on your life.

Your sign says a lot about you. For example: As a Scorpio, I'm a sexual, passionate, fiery person who isn't easily tamed. All true. (Hey, it's not my fault. It's my sign!)

And your sign doesn't merely dictate the kind of person you are; it also determines your approach to love.

Whether you're helpless to passion's throes or plagued by jealousy, it's all written in the stars. Trust me.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are full of life and have a lot of energy. You're logical in nearly every area of your life and have a good head on your shoulders.

A natural-born leader, you like to remain in control of your relationships and keep your partner wanting more. When you find love, you think logically -- just as you do with everything else -- and you don't get too ahead yourself.

Your love is steady, warm and bright, like the fire sign that you are.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Like Aries, you love to remain in control, but you're also a sucker for pleasure. When the physical chemistry is passionate and hot, you tend to fall very fast. You are a very sensual person who is in touch with you body.

Once you're in a committed relationship, you go with the flow. You enjoy indulging in the finer things in life. You would prefer to settle down with your SO in the country, where you can be in the quiet serenity of nature. You're steady, calm and decisive.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You're a lot of fun to be around. You're a talented conversationalist and always have a million awesome ideas, and you impress your SO with your knowledge and general optimism.

But you are a bit of a hopeless romantic. Gemini's do not like to be alone, so when you fall in love, you tend to become very attached to your partner.

You have to remind yourself not to be needy because when you're in love, the only thing you want to do is spend every second with your partner. You know that healthy, frequent communication is key for any functioning relationship.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are never a fool in love. When you fall, you fall hard -- but you're still cautious.

When it comes to love, you are looking for a true partner. You are attracted to people who carry their weight and are ambitious and driven.

You're a fantastic listener, and when you're in love, you're great at being your SO's number one cheerleader. You have a great sense of humor and never stop making your partner laugh.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

You have no problem finding love, thanks to your magnetic energy, charisma, self-confidence and warmth. You're a loyal partner, and when you fall in love, you fall hard.

You definitely like your freedom, but once you lock on to someone, you're in for the long haul.

You can get a bit jealous and territorial. You value love above all else, and you need to be reminded of how much you are adored.

You do have a bit of an ego, but that's actually sort of a lovable quality.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

You try to play it cool in love, but you're secretly terrified of being vulnerable. You're hard to read, but you feel love intensely.

Sometimes your significant others get frustrated because they are aren't sure what's going through your restless mind.

Love consumes you. You find it easier to be calculating, accusatory and jealous than calm and happy. You are kind, patient and easy to love, and you need to remember this.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

You are extremely organized and goal-oriented.

When it comes to love, you'd be perfectly happy with or without it. Therefore, you never settle, and you'll only date someone who's right for you and who treats with you respect.

You tend to make your lovers wait a long time before you agree to a commitment. Your strong sense of self-worth would never allow you to approach dating any other way.

When you're in love, your main priority is maintaining peace and harmony in the relationship. You prefer logical conversation and communication.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

You are very sexual and fiery person who tends to think with your body before your heart.

Love is everything to you. You are extremely passionate, and your relationships are characterized by drama and aggression.

You can get ahead of yourself, and that's when your relationships fizzle. This never bothers you much, since you're back in the game before the dust has settled.

You're very stubborn and used to getting your way. You're more suited to calm, level-headed lovers. A Pieces or Cancer would combat your intensity well.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

For you, love is an adventure. You're free-spirited and unafraid of anything.

When you fall in love, it is with little inhibition. You tend to just go for it and follow your heart. Your high intelligence usually brings you to intelligent partners with an equal taste for travel and new experiences.

You rarely like to stay in one place for very long. You'll settle down with someone who never wants to settle down.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

You don't have time for relationships that aren't going anywhere. You prefer to work toward something -- like your future with someone you're sure about -- because you're good at seeing the bigger picture.

You take all things in life very seriously and have little patience for lovers who do not do the same. You are family-oriented, are looking to settle down and live a comfortable, happy life.

You love being in love, but you steer clear of crazy passion. You want your partner to be your best friend.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

You have a big heart. When you're in love, you give all of your attention and time. Your selflessness makes you a wonderful lover. You also want an extreme, hot, passionate, can't-live-without-it kind of love.

You don't need to play games; you're all about finding the right person. And when you do, you'll never let go.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

You're likable, sweet and resilient. You are also quite sensitive, and every pain cuts to the core. You fear having your heart broken; above all, you fear not falling in love at all.

When you're in love, an argument with your partner has the ability to ruin your whole day. But one sweet compliment puts you on cloud nine.

You don't like to upset people and will often compromise your own needs for your lover's. You have to be careful not to lose sight of yourself.
