What You'll Be Like On A First Date, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Venus moves into Sagittarius on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, giving the wild, lonely hearts at the center of all signs the freedom to roam. Now is the time to figure out what you'll be like on a first date based on your zodiac sign, because now is the time to put yourself out there. The universe is full of potential mates for you. All you have to do is find somebody — or a few different people — who like however you behave when they meet you and what it says about the person you are.
Each sign responds to a first date differently, as new experiences and people trigger different vulnerabilities and longings in different signs. Mysterious Scorpio is going to behave much differently than aloof Aquarius, even if both signs are looking for love. Also, being aware of what's going on in your entire birth chart will help you understand how you'll appear on a first date. Remember that your rising sign will have just as much influence over how you relate to others as your sun sign, while the position of your moon sign will influence what's going on in your emotional life.
Here's how you'll act on a first date, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 To April 10): You're A Total Show-Off
Bad boy Aries loves to spin donuts in the parking lot because he knows it makes all the girls squeal. Aries will roll up to the first date on a skateboard, do an ollie, and smile at you with their broken tooth to make you absolutely swoon. Enough already, Aries. You already know we think you're cute.
Taurus (April 21 To May 21): You're Hungry
Taurus wants to listen to what their date is saying, but can't hear over the sound of their growling stomach. They resent that their date didn't remember to call in reservations and are seriously considering whether or not they should just bail on waiting for a table and eat at a Wendy's drive-thru instead.
Gemini (May 21 To June 21): You're Talkative AF
Gemini wants to know all of their date's deepest darkest secrets before they're halfway through their first cocktail. And if their date lacks an interesting backstory or comes up tongue-tied, that's totally fine with Gemini. Every Gemini has a complicated story of their own and can't wait to tell their date all about it.
Cancer (June 21 To July 22): You're So Nervous You Have A Stomachache
I hope Cancer remembered to bring along their Pepto-Bismol when they left the house. On a first date, they are going to be so nervous that their stomach will be in knots. They'll be questioning their own self-worth and wondering how many more dates it takes before the person they're seeing will break their heart. Try and relax a little bit, Cancer. It's just the first date and way too soon to disappear inside your shell.
Leo (July 23 To August 22): You're Down For Whatever
Leo doesn't care whether their date takes them roller skating or to a sushi buffet, as long as they are told they look good. They won't care either way whether or not they are asked to spend the night, either. Sure, they might have had a bunch of fun on their outing, but whatever the outcome, they'll know that the best part about it will be calling their best friend and spilling all the details later.
Virgo (August 23 To September 22): You're Exceptionally Tidy
Virgo shows up to a first date without a single hair out of place. They want to be impressive, so they'll probably spend a lot of time talking about their accomplishments. This quiet and sensitive sign cares a lot about what other people think of them and emits seriousness and stability. Try and loosen up a little bit, Virgo, and don't forget to have fun.
Libra (September 23 To October 22): You're Leading Your Date On While Secretly Filling Out An Evaluation Form
On a first date, airy and communicative Libras can be full of castles in the sky. They instantly fill your first date with charm by describing what their family's like at Christmas, basically insinuating that they want to marry their date tomorrow and start a brood of their own. We're not falling for it, Libra. We know you make a pro and con list before you even get to second base.
Scorpio (October 23 To November 22): You're Literally Impossible To Read
On a first date, Scorpio cloaks themselves in mystery. We can't tell whether they love us, hate us, or have absolutely no opinion whatsoever, and that's what keeps us coming back. You might try saying something encouraging, Scorpio, before your aloofness completely reawakens your date's latent inferiority complex.
Sagittarius (November 23 To December 21): You're Flirting With The Waiter
Sagittarius' appetite for roaming and adventure is particularly active on a first date, which means they can send out some very confusing signals. Don't forget that your date is literally sitting right across from you, Sagittarius, and can see you making eyes every time the server replenishes your water.
Capricorn (December 22 To January 19): You're A Little Judgmental
Capricorn prefers to take things slow, but that doesn't mean they're not thinking about whether or not their first date is marriage material. Capricorn takes the way they spend their time and the partnerships they build seriously, and can become overly invested before the time is right. Don't forget, Capricorn: a first date is supposed to be hard.
Aquarius (January 20 To February 18): Your Head's A Little Too Far In The Clouds
When you're on a first date with an Aquarius, it's basically like trying to hang out with an alien from a different planet. Whoever decides to go on a date with an Aquarius had better bring a ladder — they'll need it to get to their position on the astral plane.
Pisces (February 19 To March 20): You're Wondering When You'll Hear Back From Your Ex
Pisces emailed their ex right before heading out to let them know that they are totally over them. Before the bread comes out, they're already obsessively checking their messages to see if they have written back. If you don't have any intention of getting back with your ex, Pisces, why are you still thinking about this one? Try swimming with the waters of this date and see where it leads.
