How You Handle A One Night Stand (According To Your Zodiac)

Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

One night stands can be a lot of fun. There is no expectations for the night, you don't have to spend a lot of money on someone in hopes that they will want to have sex, and if something terrible happens, you NEVER have to see that person again (I think all of my fellow Aquarians will agree with me that this makes it a WHOLE lot sweeter).

What more could you want, right?


Some Zodiac signs are more likely than others to be down for a casual hook up, while others would rather have a long-term, meaningful relationship. Whatever your sign is, you will probably have a one night stand at least once in your life (if you haven't already).

There are so many ways you can meet a one night stand, too. Maybe you're at a party and that third shot gave you the liquid courage you wanted for the night. Maybe that cute guy in the library was reading your favorite book and you wanted to show him your sexy librarian outfit.

Any way you do it, a one night stand can happen anywhere and can be pretty spontaneous, too.


Now that you've had your casual hook up, it's time for you to sneak out... or for him to leave your apartment. Depending on which Zodiac sign you just had sex with, the day after a one night stand can be easy or hard to deal with.

Some of us will skip out as soon as it's over, while the rest of us will want to stay and cuddle. It doesn't have to be awkward, but trust me when I say it DOES get awkward from time to time.

If you know the type of person you're hooking up with, you can avoid the awkwardness and handle a one night stand like a pro.

Read below to find out how you master a casual hook up and maybe check that cute guy's sign too... just so you know what you're dealing with. We promise not to tell anyone!

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Aries is always looking for someone who matches their dynamic, which can make finding a serious relationship harder for them. She loves to have fun and she won't usually slow down for just anyone; having a one night stand is just another thing Aries likes to do to unwind.

The day after a one night stand is just like every other day for an Aries. With such a confident demeanor, Aries won't regret her fun night, nor will she make a big deal about it the next day. Unless you're totally different from everyone else Aries has had sex with, chances are good that she won't dwell on you.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Taurus Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Taurus is all about romance, but it is possible for them to separate love and lust. They have an inherent need for touch, so sometimes they just want to spend time having fun with someone for one night.

Depending on the type of connection Taurus has with her one night stand, she will either stay so she can ask to see you again or she will be gone before you wake up; chalk this up to whatever a Taurus really needs at that time.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Gemini is a social creature and can be very charming. She loves spending time with people and is incredibly affectionate, so she will often be open to having a one night stand.

Gemini hates being alone, so she likes the idea of having some human touch, even if just for the night.  She might not always stay the night (or let you stay with her), but rest assured that she had a lot of fun the night before. One night stands can be pretty inconsistent, though, so don't expect a Gemini to stick with it for very long.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Cancer is one of the more emotional signs and works best in relationships that are built on a strong foundation. She can get very attached to people around her, which makes having a one night stand hard for her. She would much rather spend time getting to know someone rather than hooking up for the sake of hooking up.

While Cancer might want to try having a one night stand once or twice, she will probably not be as into it as other signs would be. Cancer would rather work for a meaningful relationship than subject herself to embarrassment (or insecurity) after a one night stand.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Leo is a dominant and charismatic personality, which makes her hard to resist. She loves to have a good time and would be excited to try something new like having a one night stand. Leo is also very passionate and warm-hearted, and will make a one night stand something to remember.

With a good sense of humor, Leo knows when situations are serious and when they are just about fun. Leo has a good ability to separate emotions from one night stands because she knows that it's a casual fling, not something really serious.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgo Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Virgo is very hardworking, and often forgets to take a break and unwind. She likes her relationships to be as serious as she is, which can make the idea of a one night stand somewhat unappealing to her.

If she are willing to try it, having a one night stand might not be very fun for a Virgo. She might get too caught up in her head and realize too late that she isn't having much fun. If her one night stand skips out before she wake up, Virgo might blame herself for not being fun enough (even if that isn't the case at all).

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Libra Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

One night stands are great for a Libra for many reasons. Libra enjoys spending time with friends and loves meeting new people. She wants whoever she is with to have a good time with her, so a Libra can be up for almost anything.

Libra isn't always good at confronting others about her feelings or telling someone that she didn't have a good time with you, so a one night stand is a good way for a Libra to have fun without worrying about what to do afterwards. They are drama-free and easy for a Libra.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpio Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Scorpio is all about passion, which makes a one night stand with them exciting and unforgettable. She loves to have fun and having fun without strings attached is music to a Scorpio's ears. She isn't always the best at opening up to new people, so the less complications there are, the better.

Scorpio is very assertive, which means if she is interested in you, chances are she has already told you. One night stands are perfect for a Scorpio because she can hook up with someone new, and still be mysterious and intriguing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Sagittarius thrives on her own curiosity and as an extrovert, it is easy for her to try new things. She mostly wants a relationship with a lot of freedom and having a one night stand is like getting all the benefits of a relationship without feeling like she is being tied down to anyone.

A Sagittarius' ideal relationship can be hard for her to find right away so in the meantime, she might look to casual sex as a way to find the right person. Depending on the type of person she is, a Sagittarius might love one night stands or only try it once to indulge her curiosity.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Capricorn is very traditional, which means they are more likely to choose serious relationships over casual one night stands. She might weigh the pros and cons of a casual hook up before actually going through with it, but chances are she won't have the highest expectations for it.

Capricorn wants to be in a relationship where fun and romance comes effortlessly. It is possible that she will think a one night stand holds too much expectation and will ultimately not have as much fun as she had hoped.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Aquarius enjoys having fun and is always up for trying new things. One night stands are perfect for this sign because she isn't quick to get involved with someone she can't break it off with whenever she wants. A one night stand is the perfect combination of freedom and no-strings-attached fun that an Aquarius likes.

Aquarius will see a one night stand for what it is: a casual encounter that doesn't turn into anything more. Chances are, she will be the one to leave first when it's over. If she had fun with you, she might be willing to hook up again, but don't hold your breath for an Aquarius to call you first.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces Zodiac Sign Astrology Sex

Pisces is a romantic at heart and loves being with people who really gets her. She thinks of relationships as being both physical and emotional, which a one night stand usually is not. That doesn't mean that a Pisces won't be open to the ideal of casual sex, but she might be more interested in a real relationship over something that won't last.

When a Pisces does agree to a one night stand, she will want it to be both fun and special. It might only be one night, but you won't forget it when you hook up with a Pisces.
