It’s human nature to relish in that tingling, heart-warming feeling of falling in love; but, did you know that your zodiac sign can greatly influence compatibility and who you fall in love with and what qualities you are most attracted to? Astrology can help you in your quest to find the perfect partner and to have a deeper understanding of why you fall in love.
ARIES IN LOVE (Aries dates: March 20 - April 19)
Bold and brave Aries, you don’t beat around the bush when it comes to love. All you need to sway your heart is a heap of flaming passion and a partner willing to release all boundaries and bare his or her soul. You’re not one for romantic gestures and whispering of sweet nothings so your ideal soulmate is someone who will welcome your not-so-subtle ways. Aries tend to fall for lovers who balance out their sometimes irrational impulsiveness while at the same time do not totally dampen their fiery passion. Aries, you crave some tender loving care and a love match who brings out your gentle side.
TAURUS IN LOVE (Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20)
You, Taurus will fall for a compatible partner who wines and dines you – your zodiac sign is all about romance and roses. Your personality is slow and steady, but definitely not boring, you are a sexy and sensual member of the zodiac. Rooted to the earth, you yearn for a partner who will bring a little more spontaneity and lightness to your life. You seek a crush who will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and view your relationship for the long haul. You are easily hurt and slow to forgive, so you are best matched with a partner who is loyal and tender with your heart. You gain comfort from the predictability of relationships but still desire a mate who will add some spice to your twosome.

Vibrant and clever Gemini, you love to fall in love with love; but sometimes you struggle to take your relationship to the next level. Your zodiac sign desires a love match who accepts your need for independence and lets you move slowly. You’re most compatible with a lover who understands your contrasting nature coupled with your need to please, which can come across as inauthentic to some. Once you do decide to take that final step and open your heart, there’s no stopping the expanse of your love and dedication. You aren’t afraid to determine your own unique style of relationship and are willing to push the boundaries in bed, bouncing between playing the leading role and being a docile participant.

In return, Cancer, you are one of the most caring of the zodiac signs and an expert listener. You are easily hurt, so you are most compatible with signs who possess sensitivity and tact.
