Whether you are a big believer in horoscopes or not, your astrological sign can tell you a lot about yourself and often you will find many similarities that you can relate too in your own personality, or your partners if you are looking at their sign. Being aware of how the planetary movements can impact your mood and feelings can be helpful, especially if you are in a relationship, as you will know what to focus on, and what to avoid.
When it comes to dating, choosing an activity based around your star sign can be a great idea as you discover and align both your passions and personalities. So, whether you are a big believer in astrology or just curious, here are perfect date ideas based on each Zodiac sign:
Aries: March 21 - April 19
A typical Aries person is full of energy, curiosity, and loves a healthy dose of competition - either physical or mental. Therefore, why not organise a game of tennis or golf on your next date so you can show off your skills. Otherwise, head down to your local drinking hole and dazzle your guest with your general knowledge skills during a pub quiz session. However, remember to keep things cool, you don't want to put off your date by being too arrogant or aggressive!
Taurus: April 20 - May 20
Taureans are big fans of the finer things in life. They love to indulge in great food, drinks, and luxury goods; therefore, wining and dining at a great restaurant should be high on the agenda for a first date. Although fun for the first few dates, eating out can get expensive, so Taureans will equally enjoy home-made dinners and take-outs enjoyed by candlelight with some atmospheric music to replicate that luxury environment.
Gemini: May 21 - June 20
The Gemini symbol is a pair of twins - this is because they rarely like to do anything alone. Gemini's are adventurous people and love exploring new things; therefore, why not arrange a road-trip to a new place that neither of you have ever been so you can share new experiences together? Alternatively, a long, exhilarating hike in the countryside together would be a fun idea to get your pulses racing and also gives you time to talk and really get to know each other.
Cancer: June 21 - July 22
Cancer signs tend to have a slightly crazy sense of humour and often find things funny that most don't! So why not plan a date at your local comedy club? Share your funny side and if you choose a show that has multiple comedians performing, then chances are there will be parts you will both enjoy - even if these aren't necessarily the same parts!
Leo signs tend to like relaxations, preferably someplace warm, cosy and safe.
Leo: July 23 - August 22
Leo signs tend to like relaxation, preferably someplace warm, cosy and safe. Therefore, Leo's will love a date to a spa, where they can be pampered with massages and facials, followed by a lazy afternoon of reading by the indoor pool. If a spa doesn't tickle their fancy, try a movie night in where you can enjoy snacks and intimate cuddles that is sure to please.
Virgo: August 23 - Sept. 22
Virgo signs tend to love making something out of nothing - they are creative and like nurturing and growing small things. Art classes, clay making, and flower arranging could all be fun ideas for a date. Why not visit your local garden centre or botanical garden for some inspiration as you enjoy the many plants, herbs and flowers they have to offer?
Libra: Sept. 23 - October 22
Most Libras enjoy physical exercise that involves a mental component, such as long distance running, or yoga, so your date could include one of these activities followed by a drink and a chat afterwards. If you are in a relationship, why not suggest training for a marathon together - not only will this be a tremendous life achievement to celebrate as a couple, but it will also guarantee lots of time to spend together training and preparing for the event.
Scorpio: October 23 - Nov. 21
Scorpio signs are not fearful individuals, often trying things that others would not attempt. Why not show off your daredevil side and suggest a date which involves an extreme sport such as sky-diving, jet skiing, mountain biking or gliding? Guaranteed to create lasting memories and a talking point for future dates, this could help you to form a strong bond by achieving something so thrilling together.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
Sagittarians are often very intelligent and thrive on learning new things, travelling to new places, or seeking unique adventures. Galleries, exhibitions and book recitals are all good date ideas to satisfy a Sagittarian's learning needs, or if you are planning a weekend away, why not somewhere with historical or cultural meaning like Stonehenge, Stratford-upon-Avon or Westminster Abbey. You both will enjoy exploring a new place as well as soaking up the culture at the same time.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 19
Capricorn people are renowned for guarding their hearts closely and often find it hard to let people in. Therefore, an ideal date for a Capricorn would be to do something where they have the opportunity to really get to know their date to help let down their guards. A simple coffee date in a quiet cafe, or a stroll through the woods would be an ideal date and one that can help spark conversation while exploring the outdoors.
Aquarius: Jan. 20 - Feb. 18
Aquarians are often extremely generous in terms of their time and resources; they have a deep concern for the welfare of others and are kind and considerate. A perfect date would be to volunteer in a soup kitchen or at a charity event. Not only would this provide the Aquarian a sense of giving back, it will help you both see a more empathetic and warming side to your date.
Pisces: Feb. 19 - March 20
Pisces, like their fish symbol are usually great lovers of the sea. Whether it's spring or summer, a coastal walk can be hugely enjoyable, especially when followed by a drink or playing on the slot machines at the local arcade, to bring back childhood memories. If you have something romantic instead, hire a rowing boat at your local lake and re-enact that famous scene from the film 'The Notebook'.
