Date for every sign

So…Today a quick fun holidays post about the best date for every sign, of course if you know anything about Astrology our Sun sign is a small and fraction of who we are.  That being said our Sun is our ego, our self-esteem, our confidence- all things that make us happy.

Feel free to find a date that works for the chart of the person (if you know it).  For example, the perfect date for my Leo friend would fit in Gemini as she has both Moon and Venus in that sign. I wrote this with a first or second date in mind, this is not about what a sign needs in a relationship but about the general style of how they like things to play out in terms of activity. Also, this is not an in-depth or very accurate description of a sign. Why? Because a Leo Venus is not a Leo Moon, instead look at it as personality types and how to date them. Hope I made that clear and we can proceed to how fun it is to date all these different types.

What is your favorite date and what is your sign?

Date for Aries

A good date for this strong personality ruled by Mars would involve a little action. Aries enjoy anything that is new, exciting, physical and playful. Many appreciate having an adrenaline spike. So get them an experience! They also don’t like doing things alone so you can get into the fun with them.  Anything involves wheels and fun rides will be success. They can also enjoy games (paintball anyone?) As long as you let them win.  Bottom line: if it allows them to get out there and not be bored, feel competitive but also on the receiving end of warm attention- it’s a good idea.

Date for Taurus

Taurus is easy to please. Anything that is pleasant to the senses is going to make them feel loved.  Treat them to an experience that is relaxed and doesn’t involve a lot of stressful choices. They need to feel they can enjoy all that is around them- the atmosphere, the food and the music.  Taurus would also enjoy live music, theater, an art exhibition or anything beautiful. The trick is to let them soak in what you are doing together. No words needed but touch is. Bottom line: No need for expensive over the top dates, just make sure it is comfortable and smells nice where you are going. Oh and pleas pleas keep it classy.

Date for Gemini

This one can get a bit tricky; it depends greatly on your ability to read their bored face, as long as the Gemini isn’t bored? It’s going well.  A date with no complications that seems to go smoothly is what they want.  It doesn’t matter what you do as long as the conversation is flowing. That being said, many Gemini’s enjoy playing games or solving puzzles. They also like a date that isn’t too planned out. So you should plan it but make it look as if they are in a movie and stuff is just going on. Move from one place to the next, take a little trip somewhere and change direction. Gemini would appreciate a stand up show, a game of poker or a poetry night.

Date for Cancer

Cancer needs to feel they can trust you before they open up. A date that involves getting to know your soft side is going to be best.  Romantic gestures that show that you care are appreciated.  At the same time, don’t go in too strong so an activity that allows that safe space is best. Cancer can also be nostalgic and like doing something that they enjoyed growing up.  The classic movie date is not a bad idea. They can also enjoy doing something domestic like cooking together. Many enjoy following a romantic script. So the whole looking at the stars and holding hands drill. Some might also appreciate a little drama so take them to the theater or a dance show to get their emotions out. Bottom line: Keep it sweet but with a touch of dramatic flair.

Date for Leo

Leo does like the over the top romantic gestures.  They appreciate knowing they can shine in the situation.  So avoid anything that is not going to allow them to show their best: best dress, best talent or just best mood. It is not really all that complicated.  They would prefer dates to be outside the home- somewhere public. You need to show you put effort and made it not just about you.  Like the Aries they can enjoy a little bit of action and outdoor stuff- but in a glamorous setting involving heels or ties.  Bottom line: show them off in the best spot in town, and gifts are a sign of respect.  Parties, carnivals, the opera and your friend’s house, are generally reasonable ideas. Oh and keep it full of joy, no complaining.

Date for Virgo

My goodness, this one is both super simple and hard. It is about showing you have something to offer- that they want.  It doesn’t matter so much what you do as long as you’re honest and polite. Many Virgo types can enjoy a walk, a bit of nature and conversation. Yes like the Gemini date they would need to be interested in that. At first make it a coffee, don’t make it long and don’t brag.  Go somewhere that is clean and relaxed, no chaos. Virgo can also really appreciate a good sense of humor. Bottom line: simple, clean and intelligent activities.  Coffee it is.

Date for Libra

Libra would enjoy the classic date with a twist. So start with classic: a good restaurant, a show and add an element of edginess to it.  Libra  doesn’t like to be making choices during the date- so pick something for them. At the same time they are super sharp and would appreciate high culture, so nothing vulgar, ugly or aggressive pleas. If the classic pretty part goes well you can venture into something different. Like alternative music, poetry, art or maybe UFO hunting. They are amazing like that. Bottom line: not home, not nature but yes to culture of any type.

Date for Scorpio

Scorpio wants to destroy the classic date- they want to strip you down to your true intentions. The Virgo wants an honest date- Scorpio wants a date they can figure out to be honest. See the difference? Scorpio wants their emotions to awaken. If you go for a movie or a play make it something powerful and intense. They will not appreciate you trying to figure them out but will melt complexly if you lay your heart bare. Anyway, Scorpio wants an experience of emotional intimacy. How to achieve that? I don’t know, maybe save their life? Or at least show you would.

Date for Saggiterius

Saggiterius like to feel free, a date outdoors or taking a little trip is fun for them.  Unlike the Libra their idea of nature isn’t a Japanese park but a forest with animals. They also love foreign cultures so exotic foods or getting to know a culture is exciting to them.  They don’t care how highbrow a date is- they want it real and free.  So nothing that forces you into a suite or dress pleas. They could appreciate anything that allows them to learn- lectures, classes and seminars. They also enjoy sports quite a bit and comedy. Bottom line: If it speaks a new language, quakes like a duck or sounds like Jim Carrey. Go for it.

Date for Capricorn

Capricorn likes the vintage feel. They want real high quality but without glamorous or overly romantic gestures. So they don’t want you confessing your feelings but they do want you to show respect. A romantic gesture is mistrusted but simple warm actions are valued. So if you just take your coat off for them or ask them about their day they will see it as a good sign. They really enjoy classic anything. Also keep boundaries of respect and politeness at all costs. Other than that they are very down to earth and don’t need an actual “activity” for the date. Make sure to not talk too much and follow their smart little anecdotes.

Date for Aquarius

Aquarius likes a date that doesn’t say it’s a date. Keep it friendly and easy going and let them decide if they want it to be a date.  They do like to feel free and will not tolerate actions that limit that. That means that unlike the Libra they need to be making the choices for where you go. At the same time you need to be strong enough to say what you want and offer that as an option. So…Do what you like to do but make sure to incorporate their idea of fun into it. Many Aquarius types love alternative gatherings and venues that allow diversity and free spirted behavior. They would go to most things “indie” if you offer.

Date for Pisces

Well, a date that transports them beyond the mundane world is good. Maybe a date that is a bit like fate, a movie scene or dream. At least it should feel like it matters, it is about breaking boundaries. Not like the Aquarius that wants to feel they rule they world but like boundaries between people are broken. Many start relationships after an intimate conversation or doing something kind for you. I think that date happens a long time after the actual romantic connection has happened.  What made the connection? Only they know, probably something small that made them feel bound. Anyway, Pisces like dates where you both can make small sweet and caring gestures for each other. They enjoy spending time alone with you in a dreamscape.

Spirtuality Myths

I want to touch briefly on a very complicated subject,that of spirituality as seen in individual signs.

We tend to think the spiritual is apposed to the material world. Its that which is beyond the illusion of the body and the daily life,right? If so then the spiritual signs are the ones that transcend the illusion through intuition. Perhaps the ones that hold faith and devotion on a emotional and not rational level? I agree its true that some signs symbolize this type of ability. For example,water signs are considered to be more spiritual then others.

Pisces,Scorpio,Cancer are all more able to tap into the dream world. They are more emotional then the other signs and are ruled by feelings and passions. we will get back to the problem there later. Next,the earth signs are considered the most grounded in the “real world” so to speak. They see the world through the senses and the body and therefore they are seen as least spiritual. The fire signs come next-they are doers that want power. Air signs are somewhere in between for they are not ruled by the body or the heart,instead they have the mind to guide them. Of course this is all a very simplistic view but I’m sure many hold it without thought at times.

I would like to point out that this is all a complete myth! and ill explain why.

I believe no sign is better or worse but instead different. Everyone is spiritual,we all hold that spark inside but how we reach it in our lives is the difference. The water signs,those personalties that are “feelers” may indeed feel and receive daily little visions of something more.a world beyond even. But being so emotional they do not always even understand what they experience or feel. If anything such people are so sensitive that they become confused or agitated.

Sensitive people feel and know things but they are also get more easily unbalanced. So there is a strong tendency when young for sensitive people (symbolized by water signs) to shut themselves of. When this happens then all the spiritual or intuitive ability is asleep.

And that OK,it takes time to learn how to experience many feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. I would also like to point out that by closing themselves of,signs like Cancer tend to do less in the world. So no amount of wanting to make the world a better place is going to help. To make the world better-someone needs to do something and be out there to change it! And the dreamy Pisces isn’t going to do that. He would flow on into India or to the closest bar.

Air signs,though more rational and less inclined to be conservative and religious. Are at least more capable to holding on to morals and high ideals and doing something about them. The problem is they do tend to be skeptic and they like to argue too much. So the Gemini may argue about his ideals until he is bleeding but thats where it ends.   Another problem is that Air signs get bored very fast. What can be helpful is for them to have a community around them that holds their beliefs. In which case the Air signs will become great spiritual leaders of the group.

The fire signs,are surprisingly spiritual in a more conservative way. And they are more likely to do something even if their faith isn’t strong-they believe in a cause or a moral value. Their problem is they might not see the needs of others,in other words the ego is too strong. But that more then OK! they can channel that ego into action for the masses and leadership.

The earth signs are very practical and very sensual. They can experience spirituality through the material world and the body (think Tantra). They are also very loyal to their values to the point of stubborn. They have the ability to act but not burn out too fast and without needing a big audience. And through the senses they are connected to the real world and can channel the spiritual into the earthy reality around them!

I would like to finish this post with a song:

“Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven plays my favorite song.
They play it once again, they play it all night long.

Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.”

-Talking Heads

Heaven isn’t a place with no sensuality,no earth or body-a place where nothing happens. Heaven is a struggle,an action and a dream. Its doing and building in the real world and making it a better place. And for that one has to use the tools:the body,mind and soul.
