Wish you could look into a crystal ball and see the future of your relationship with a certain dude?

Well, while it can't tell you everything, a guy's zodiac sign can reveal a lot about his style between the sheets and even how he acts on dates, which can be super helpful if you're just getting to know each other. And if you're in an LTR, learning more about the pros and cons of being with a certain sign can help you gain more insight on his views about commitment or even just delegating chores.

Here, we're breaking down what it's like to be in a relationship with all the dudes of the zodiac. Behold.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

He's a hot-blooded pursuer: When he's interested, you know it, says astrologer Suzanne Gerber. "He comes on strong because he is that way—in work, in life, and in bed. He has a strong sexual desire and knows what he likes. Sex tends to be athletic. He'll probably teach you a thing or two," says Gerber. Hold on, girl. You're in for a wild ride.

Pros: "He's exciting, passionate, and you never know what to expect," says Gerber.
Cons: "He's more focused on himself than pretty much anything else and might forget your birthday and anniversary dates," says Gerber. The more you know.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

Hope you like to eat. Dates with a Taurus revolve around food and drink—and intense sensuality. "This guy loves to touch everythingSex is hot and very physical. He loves nature, animals, and your family, but might not be joining you at SoulCycle," says Gerber. That's because he's not down to try anything new, trendy, or involving much exercise (though it depends on the guy). 

Pros: Gerber says this type of guy is super erotic and romantic and can cook like nobody's business. 
Cons: He's a bit sedentary and stuck in his ways, says Gerber. Don't try to convince him otherwise.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Every date with this fun-loving guy will be different—and lively! Movies, dancing, trivia night at the pub—and that's just Tuesday. So yeah, you're in for an adventure (and not just on date night). "Sexually, this guy has hands like a concert pianist and moves like Beckham," says Gerber. Hot damn.

Pros: There's never a dull moment with this live wire, and he'll always keep you entertained, says Gerber.
Cons: He can be very chatty and sometimes has the attention span of a fruit fly, she says.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

Dating a Cancer is a bit of a rollercoaster. Basically, they're moody. So you'll have to be very secure to be with this guy. "His moods generally have little to do with his partner," says Suzie Kerr Wright, an astrologer and certified holistic life coach. "He just gets overwhelmed by the world and needs to retreat." Mood swings aside, he's great to date if you're looking for commitment because most Cancers actually want to be in a long-term relationship, she says. Just keep in mind that he needs a lot of reassurance that you're in it for the long haul, too. Sexually, he will put your needs first, and he won't mind if you take the lead. But he sometimes needs to be reminded to bring on the romance, she says.

Pros: He's a world-class cuddler, a great listener, and will make you a pot of tea when you have the sniffles, says Gerber.
Cons: His emotionality can border on brooding moodiness, she says.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

These dudes are generally considered "the king of the jungle" (at least in their own minds). "Sexually, they can be motivated to be the best ever or just assume they are and then not make an effort," says astrologer Matthew Currie. Usually, though, they are a lot of fun to hang out with, and it might actually work as a friendship in the event of a break-up, says Currie.

Pros: He's loving, faithful, generous, and will shower you with compliments.
Cons: "He can be arrogant, self-centered, and overly concerned with appearances—especially his hair. He's also probably as stubborn as the day is long," says Gerber.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

This may not be the most demonstrative sign, but Virgo is probably the most organized guy you'll ever date. And hey, neatness counts when you live together. "Compliments are few and far between, but when he does praise you, you know it's sincere," says Gerber. Plus, he'll never embarrass you with sloppy attire or bad table manners. "In bed, he may not be the most original lover, but he always gets the job done," says Gerber. (Make sex more pleasureable with these Luna Femme Training Beads from the Women's Health Boutique!)

Pros: He's well groomed and will do all the date and vacation planning (lazy girls, listen up!). He'll even help you fit more stuff into your suitcase, says Gerber.
Cons: He's a little insecure and self-conscious, she says.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

These men are known to be relationship-oriented and tend to play peacemaker a lot. But don't be fooled by this, says Currie. Libras like being in control as much as anyone, and they have a peculiar gift for getting their way through with charm and an uncanny ability to make you think it was all your idea. Still, they do dress up and present well, says Currie.

Pros: He's romantic and buys the best presents, says Gerber.
Cons: He can be obsessed with appearances—and is an incorrigible flirt that might have some commitment issues, Gerber warns.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

If you are looking for passion, date a Scorpio. These guys are deep, intense, mysterious, introspective, and very, very sexual. "Don't try to pry secrets out of him! In life, he's all or nothing: Full-on pursuit and interaction or crickets," says Gerber. He might also have a taste for kink.

Pros: He will make you feel like the center of the universe, says Gerber. 
Cons: He does not budge on his opinions. "He is prone to intense jealousy. If someone does him wrong, he'll hold a grudge forever," says Gerber.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

He's upbeat, athletic, outdoorsy, and just plain fun to be around. "You'll wish every day could be a date with Mr. Sag," says Gerber. But he may treat you more like a friend than lover, so get used to it. It's no reflection on you, just on his open-minded egalitarianism. "And make sure your passport is up to date. This globetrotter can be hard to keep up with!" says Gerber.

Pros: He's funny, open-minded, and doesn't get very dramatic, says Gerber. He's a passionate lover and will be your BFF.
Cons: He's not terribly emotional and can be hard to pin down—on decisions and long-term commitment. His brutal honesty sometimes cuts to the quick, says Gerber.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

These men are solid, stable, and capable of achieving great heights through their efforts. "They can't necessarily be counted on to provide the excitement in your relationship," says Currie. They often have a strangely old-fashioned quality to them. Sometimes that's a good thing, but it can be a big pain in the ass, she says.

Pros: He plays for keeps, never breaks a promise, and spoils his dates with luxury, says Gerber.
Cons: He's the consummate workaholic and may be obsessed with his bank account, she says.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

This unpredictable free spirit is a total original. "The only thing you can expect with him is the unexpected," says Gerber. There's no typical date with this guy. Sexually, he's quirky but fun. "Though after the deed, he'll likely roll over and commence snoring," says Gerber.

Pros: He's exciting and inventive, and will teach you more than anyone you've ever known, promises Gerber.
Cons: You might be a little embarrassed at what he wears when he meets your 'rents for the first time, says Gerber. You won't always know where you stand with him. There could be another girl, girls, or guy in the picture. So keep that open communication flowing.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

The Pros And Cons Of Falling In Love With Him, Based On His Sign

This guy is sensitive and everything he is feeling, he really feels.  "This man in love is a poet by nature," says astrologer Janet Amid. "But he also craves solitude and isolation."







Pros: He's very sensitive and not afraid to share his emotions, says Amid.
Cons: But he can be moody. "The flip side can be his obsessive nature, he may be at times too intense by blowing up your phone, or shutting completely down."
