Taurus (April 20 To May 20): A Romantic Dinner For Two Somewhere Private
Tauruses are in love with love, and for V-Day they want nothing more than to connect with the person they care most about, one-on-one.

Sagittarius (November 22 To December 21): A Group Date With All Your Favorite Couple Friends
Sag folks may have a big hearts but, let’s be honest, they aren’t the sentimental sort. Optimistic, fun-loving, clever? 100 percent.
