How the Zodiac Signs Fall in Love

How the Zodiac Signs Fall in Love

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Very Fast

Aries is renowned for being fiery and quick-witted. They are still in the present moment and never second-guess themselves. There is no sign that does it better than this when it comes to falling in love. "Aries are champions, brave, and enjoy being in charge," says O'Connor. "They spring into action, and once they've set their eyes on another, their tenacity and needle-like concentration will chase the love before they realize it's no longer what they want." Aries is a sign who enjoys the thrill of falling in love. It's a different story for them to stay in love. They're one of the signs that comes and goes easily.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Slow

Taurus, the zodiac's most sensual sign, must first and foremost experience a sexual attraction to another. They are attracted to people who are powerful and safe, according to O'Connor. It requires longer than a few dates to determine whether or not anyone will provide them with the stability they need in a relationship. Taurus will notice how much work someone puts in in order to win them over in the early stages of dating. Taurus, rather than any other Earth sign, is more inclined to seek affection. Since they are ruled by Venus, healthy food, thoughtful dates, and passion will keep them enthralled for a long time. Tauruses aren't interested in dating for the sake of dating. They go on dates in the hopes of meeting someone special.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Slow

It takes a long time for Gemini to fall in love. They're gregarious beings who like going out and meeting new people. It's more about finding their choices for them when it comes to dating. Gemini is influenced by the subconscious, according to O'Connor. Mental stimulation is needed to hold a Gemini engaged long enough for them to fall in love. "Intelligence, banter, sarcasm, and lighthearted playfulness draw them," O'Connor says. "Words will be pollen to a bee, and how they receive those words will be pollen to a bee." Gemini is a fickle sign that gets bored quickly. When they know they're really into the same person they've been talking to for months, though, they'll begin to wonder if they're in love.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Very Fast

Cancer is known for being sensitive and emotionally in tune to other people. They're known for being compassionate, affectionate, and nurturing. They tend to be a little shy at first, but they have a lot of love to give, and have no trouble falling in love fast. According to O'Connor, Cancer is all about the comforts of home. They enjoy nice meals, cosy nights in, and making emotional connections. "They’re sensitive and want to know that you feel and get them," O'Connor says. When they do find someone who really sees them for who they are, they get emotionally attached and will likely stay that way for a long time.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Very Fast

"Leo is a charismatic and often a colorful person who can make decisions quickly," Leslie Hale, astrologer for Keen.com, tells Bustle. Leos have a tendency to fall in love a little too fast. When they do, they'll be loyal until they have a reason not to be. "This can be good or bad depending on the person," Hale says. For instance, Leos often fall in love with the wrong type and can get hurt over and over again until they change who they go after. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which makes them enjoy being the center of attention. According to Hale, Leos like getting their egos fed. "If you can do this in a subtle, or not so subtle way, then you have a good chance at capturing Leo's heart," she says.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Very Slow

Typically, Virgos aren't in a big hurry to fall in love. According to Hale, they're more about work and productivity, and less about romance and dating. They'd rather spend most of their time building their network and going to industry events than dating a bunch of people who likely won't meet their standards.

"Virgo is typically not interested in anyone they would consider a 'risk,' and this means anyone who does not share their same work ethic or has undesirable qualities that could interfere in any way with their career or slow them down," Hale says. In order to win the heart of a Virgo, it's important to go slow and allow things to unfold naturally. If they get pushed into defining a relationship before they're ready, they will get pushed away. According to Hale, Virgo is a serious sign who likes to get things right the first time. "If you can appreciate these qualities and impress your Virgo with your own hopes and plans for a solid future, you could find yourself on their short list to date when they have time to actually think about it," she says

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Fast

Libra is another Venus-ruled sign who loves love and is a true romantic at heart. According to O'Connor, Libras are all about other people. "They love relationships, harmony, and doing things together," he says. "They like charm, grace, and fairness." Since they're Air signs, they like being social and making new friends. They're also very charming and they like to flirt. If they find someone who's beautiful inside and out, and who's willing to put an equal amount of effort into pursuing them, they can fall in love pretty fast. For them, relationships are meant to be partnerships. It's important for them to find someone who's willing to give as much as they get.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Slow

Scorpios are Water signs that are known for being deep, sensual, and passionate. According to O'Connor, they love those traits in themselves and they like that about others as well. "They’re all about the mystery with an intense and somewhat magical and captivating aura," O'Connor says. When it comes to dating, a Scorpio will give you just enough to feel like you know them, but they likely won't give you the whole story until they trust you completely. Since they tend to be suspicious about other people's motives, it takes a while to earn a Scorpio's trust and love. Scorpio doesn't just let anyone in. Once they do, they know they've found someone really special.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Slow

Out of all the signs in the zodiac, Sagittarius is the sign that doesn't really need a relationship in order to be happy. They're adventurers. "They want to travel, mentally and figuratively," O'Connor says. "They want people with whom they can explore. They want fun, freedom, and frolics." For them falling in love is all about finding the right partner and being in the right place in their life to take a relationship on. If they find someone who doesn't stifle their sense of freedom and who's willing to explore the world with them, they will find themselves falling in love.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Very Slow

Capricorns will take their time when it comes to love. According to O'Connor, they love people that work hard, are responsible, and take initiative. Many younger Capricorns find themselves being attracted to older people, as they're more likely to have achieved success. "Capricorn, being the mountain goat, will take its time to scale that mountain and reach its goals," O'Connor says. "They apply the same methods in business as they do with love. They want love to be worth it." It takes some time in order for them to know if someone is worth it. Until then, they're more than happy to focus on their life goals.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Very Slow

Aquarius is another sign that doesn't really need a romantic relationship in order to be happy. According to O'Connor, they're very social beings. "They’re attracted to people that perhaps stand out or are not afraid to show off their unique and individual self," he says. They like being out in the community, they like making friends from all kinds of backgrounds, and they have a natural desire to create change in the world around them. They tend to put more focus into the community than themselves or a romantic partner. It doesn't mean that Aquarius won't ever fall in love. It just takes a really long time. Many times, an Aquarius will be friends with someone first and then start to develop feelings.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Very Fast


If there's one sign that's most likely to fall in love at first sight, it's Pisces. As Hale says, "This sign falls in love quickly and is prone to getting hurt more often than others as a result," Hale says. "They are often as much in love with the idea of love as anything else." Pisces is ruled by Neptune, which is the planet of dreams, fantasy, and deception. People born under Pisces are very sensitive and don't handle emotional neglect very well. "They prefer partners to be emotionally caring and sensitive toward them," Hale says. As long as they have this, they can stay in love forever.

There are a lot of different things that can go into how fast someone falls in love. Everyone does it in their own time. This just shows a general idea of how long it takes for each zodiac sign to fall in love.
