Zodiac tips for loved-up pairs ahead of Valentine’s Day

Are you and your partner a match made in heaven, or star-crossed lovers doomed from the start? Do your celestial signs align, both physically and emotionally? Let astrology be the judge.

Valentine’s Day has once again arrived, with swathes of loved-up pairs seeking to celebrate the day with a romantic rendezvous. Sometimes, though, a little extra-cosmological support is needed to make sure you and your lover are on the same celestial page. While some signs complement each other perfectly, others are less well matched, which could lead to emotional and physical strife.

When it comes to finding out how well suited you and your other half are – publically and behind closed doors – the zodiac’s pairings give a general idea of what to expect. Although no two people are the same, the various defining traits that are attributed to each sign can help guide you on your path to relationship satisfaction. Are you an attentive lover or is it adventure that you seek? Are you a passionate romantic or a coy wallflower? Perhaps it’s variety and the unexpected that you love the most? Read on for our comprehensive celestial compatibility guide to love, romance and everything inbetween…


March 21 – April 19
Relationship traits: Passionate, energetic, pursuer
Most compatible with: Leo, Libra, Gemini, Scorpio
Least compatible with: Cancer, Capricorn

Assertive Aries is the ram, the first sign of the zodiac and a fire sign. This makes you self-assured, extroverted and eager when part of a couple. More of an in-the-moment than a hearts-and-flowers sign, you like open, honest relationships with plenty of physical intimacy. You prefer to pursue rather than be pursued, and you’re not afraid to say exactly what you want. You are unabashedly fiery and confident which can sometimes come across as dominant; be gentle and thoughtful at times.

Aries Valentine’s Day Tip: Spoil your loved one with a special night just for them. It’s long overdue.


April 20 – May 20
Relationship traits: Traditional, sensual and romantic
Most compatible with: Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Pisces
Least compatible with: Leo, Aquarius

As a Taurian, you value sensual pleasures more than other signs and have a heightened sense of smell, sound and touch. You can be a bit picky when it comes to choosing a partner, preferring to wait until the right person comes along. You are thoughtful and considerate when it comes to loving relationships and will express great consideration for the needs of others. You love being wooed, so potential love interests should wine and dine you for romantic success. A well-thought out gift may be coming your way.

Taurus Valentine’s Day Tip: Be spontaneous. Make a bit more effort than you usually would and be open to new ideas.


June 21 – July 22
Relationship traits: Passionate, protective and elusive
Most compatible with: Taurus, Virgo, Pisces
Least compatible with: Aries, Libra

Known for their love of stability, Cancers seek faithful, loyal and loving partners. You are sensual and creative, but you’re also wary when it comes to new love interests. Once you feel secure, your confidence grows both emotionally and physically. You love romance and romantic gestures, especially dinner à deux. You are sometimes possessive of the ones you love, and often need lots of reassurance or loving words. Trust more and you’ll soon see how little substance your fears have.

Cancer Valentine’s Day Tip: Cook a romantic meal for two and shower your partner with praise.

Relationship traits: Sensual, social and attentive
Most compatible with: Aries, Sagittarius, Leo

Known for their high libido and fiery nature, Leos are one of the most passionate signs of the zodiac. You have an intense and powerful chemistry that draws plenty of attention from the opposite sex. You love intimacy and are extremely attentive when it comes to physical interaction. However you also need constant reassurance from your partner in private, as well as in social situations. Sometimes you can be overly demanding so take a step back once in a while.

Leo Valentine’s Day Tip: Let your partner know you’re thinking about them too, with a thoughtful gift or trip away.

Geminis are renowned for their flirtatious side and are quite open when it comes to experimentation, or even mysterious trysts in new places. You have great communication skills and you look for fun, easygoing partners. In the past, you have flitted from one relationship to another, although you can also be loyal and loving. You can be somewhat indecisive at times, making it hard for your other half to address your needs. You need to be more assertive as it will help your relationship in the long run.

Highly sensual, Virgos look for physical intimacy with their partners at all times. Forget fancy dinners or extravagant gifts, it is closeness with your beloved that you seek. You wear your heart on your sleeve and are immensely proud of your relationship. You often look for more extroverted star signs and love appearing in public as a Hollywood-perfect couple. Behind closed doors, however, you’re far more adventurous and ready to shake off your conventional image. Don’t be afraid to share your innermost thoughts.

Virgo Valentine’s Day Tip: Splash out and celebrate your loved-up status, perhaps at a special restaurant you’ve been meaning to try.

Many believe Scorpios to be untameable, thanks to their highly sensual, extroverted nature. Ardently amorous though you may be, you are also willing to listen to your partner – especially if they want to explore new avenues in your relationship. You also like to keep your lover on their toes, and aren’t afraid to let them know if you’re not satisfied. You like to give, but you also usually get what you want. Try to keep an open mind; your partner might be too shy to open up to you.

Make sure you are giving off the right signals to your loved one and don’t be afraid to share your inner thoughts.

January 20 – February 18
Relationship traits: Discerning, physical, receptive
Most compatible with: Gemini, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Least compatible with: Taurus, Scorpio

Aquarians are notably fickle when it comes to giving bedroom preferences away. You pride yourself on your clear-headedness and rationale. Once you meet the right person, though, these scruples often fall by the wayside. You like to be mentally stimulated and that’s often the way to your heart. You like to explore, but you don’t like to be caged in. Finding the right physical and emotional match is important to you but make sure you aren’t being too judgemental about potential suitors – someone’s got their eye on you.

Aquarius Valentine’s Day Tip: Experiment more than you usually would. Your strict principles may be holding you back.



November 22 – December 21
Relationship traits: Adventurous, affectionate and flirtatious
Most compatible with: Aries, Libra, Aquarius, Sagittarius
Least compatible with: Virgo, Pisces

Spontaneous Sagittarians are known for their affection and attentiveness. The perpetual wanderer, you love to meet new people and try new things. In relationships, you’re the one usually making suggestions and you are often flirty and, possibly, a bit promiscuous. You’re always up for an adventure, especially if it’s of a romantic nature. While your partner loves spending time with you, remember that alone time can also mean just enjoying each others’ company.

Sagittarius Valentine’s Day Tip: Harness your sense of adventure to your relationship by whisking your lover away on a romantic mini-break.


February 19 – March 20
Relationship traits: Discreet, thoughtful and mysterious
Most compatible with: Scorpio, Cancer, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Playful Pisceans are a source of delight for their partners, and are keen to share interests and pursue adventures together. Moderately physical, you often rely on non-verbal communication with your other half, especially in intimate scenarios. You are very giving in your relationship and happiest when you are relaxing as a pair. You are also – at times – shy, as well as being incredibly loyal. Don’t be afraid to suggest new activities together, too. You need to make sure you don’t get stuck in a domestic rut; your partner may well think the same.

Pisces Valentine’s Day Tip: Vocalise more. Share you inner thoughts and you might be rewarded.
