Let the heavens teach you a thing or two about romance.
The zodiac has always been scarily accurate for me and my lovers, and basing activities around the zodiac can be pretty fun and interesting. Whether you want to choose a date night around your own sign's qualities or the sign of your date, you'll be able to craft the perfect evening.
It might make one or both of you come out of your shells and show your true natures. So, go ahead and choose your sign or your partner's zodiac sign. Compare, contrast, or blend the two for an interesting, star-infused date.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Take an indoor rock climbing class.
Aries are naturally athletic, assertive, and active, which means you'd probably want to do something energetic. If you live near a coastal city, why not take a kayak out onto the water? If you're in the city, try indoor rock-climbing or a bike ride. A little playful competition and some hard-earned sweat will be a total aphrodisiac.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Take a cooking class and learn how to make each other's favorite foods.
Taurus are possibly one of the most dependable, sturdy and helpful signs on the zodiac. Beyond that, though, they've got a sensual quality that's often overshadowed. With all this in mind, a cooking class might be the perfect date. Taurus can ground themselves in a simple, earthly task while indulging in the scents and flavors of food. Mmm.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Kick some ass at a local trivia night.
Adaptable by nature, Gemini's dualism makes them very apt to mingle and morph. Plus, they love expression and communication, so they're often the life of a party. In that case, why not head to a trivia night? You can meet groups of other smart people and let Gemini shine.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Take a nature walk and become immersed in the world around you.
Contemplative and totally mysterious, they can also be (annoyingly) sensitive and somewhat moody, always sort of moving about the world in a dreamy way. Your date should involve nature, whether that means heading to a park, driving along the ocean, or hiking in the woods. Cancer will be free to connect with the earth, and you'll be sure to have lots of conversation.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Go on a competitive double-date with your best friend and her boyfriend.
Leos are true leaders. They love power, they work hard for recognition, and they can be super friendly. Why not put Leo into a situation where their natural strengths can shine? How about a double date competition of some sort? This could be in the form of a sport (like couple's tennis) or even karaoke.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Watch a documentary and start a conversation about it.
Naturally quite reserved, they hold to their values, and want to work hard and do a good job. They're also analytical and intelligent, which makes them the perfect companion for an evening of TED Talks or an academic discussion or presentation. Maybe they'd like to see a documentary or go to a live debate? Whatever the date may be, they'll come to life when presented with an intelligently provocative situation.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Attend a house party, especially one with weird people in attendance.
Libras are pretty refined, like diplomacy and balance, but can also be pretty artistic. Why not take them to a house party with some weird, interesting and powerful people? Libra will usually find their way to the center of a conversation, and they can literally make any situation fun and worthwhile.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Get holed up in a sexy, dimly bar.
Let the Scorpio's inherent intensity and sexuality transform the night into something intoxicating and pleasurable. Scorpio will probe and challenge you, and you might even feel zapped of energy after the date. This is how the Scorpio hooks you, whether you like it or not.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Date in the dark, and heighten your sense of touch.
Sagittarians don't like predictability; in fact, don't even bother going for a simple dinner date here. They're restless and spontaneous. But don't worry, they're also generally super-friendly. What about an evening of blind dining? The unpredictable element is sure to please, and there will be plenty of room for cozy conversation.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Play 20 Questions and learn more about one another.
Capricorns know exactly what they need and want, and they'll get it. They probably won't reveal everything up front, so a date that introduces a good way of getting to know one another is key. In order to get to the bottom of this tricky sign, play a card game that requires answers or personal information. It'll help both of you reveal exactly what you need to reveal about one another.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Go see a live concert of your favorite bands.
Aquarius are eccentric and sort of wild, love to talk, and they've got progressive ideas. I hope you like to dance and party, because that's what will make this sign come to life. Go see some live music, go to an outdoor concert, or watch a risqué burlesque show. This sign wants to have a weird, wild, and fun time.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): See a Broadway show, and sing all the songs afterward.
This date will be dreamy, sensitive and sort of romantic. They're good to their core, so approach carefully. A good way to get close to a Pisces is by going to a dramatic theater show. You can sit closely and observe something together, while letting the Pisces get involved with the artistic element of the evening. Be ready for some deep talk afterward.
