The Type Of Wingman You Need When You're Single, According To His Zodiac Sign

Every guy needs support.

Having a wingman is like having a best friend — only better — and if you're having trouble deciding who that special person should be, look to your horoscope for answers

Sure, your best friend is there for you all the time, whether you’re going through a break up or you want to hang out all night, but a wingman is like a best friend who helps you get laid. No, that’s not ALL a wingman does, but if that’s your M.O. then yeah, he’s there to help.

A wingman is someone who has your back when the two of you go out. 

Need someone to keep a cute girl’s chatty friend busy while you flirt with herYour wingman’s got you. 

Need someone to give you pointers on what to talk about with a hottie so you don’t get tongue-tied? Your wingman has it covered.

No matter what you need, your wingman should always be there for you.

Plus, it’s always better to have a friend with you when you go out to a bar or a party – no one wants to be the creepy guy lurking around groups of women alone at a party.

But finding the right wingman can take some time. I guarantee that you’ll have to go through some wingmen before you find the perfect one.

Of course, you can’t really have them fill out applications or send in their resumes, so it’s more of a learning curve when you figure out which dynamic works between you and your wingman.

But once you find the perfect bro to accompany you to the club, it’s like a well-oiled machine; he chats up the cuties sipping margaritas while you buy them another round, and by the time you get to their table with more yummy drinks, he’s made sure they know what a total catch you are.

When you think about it, you might already have an idea of the type of wingman you’re looking for.

Of course, you might say that you want someone who’s going to chat you up so well that women are basically throwing themselves at you, but what you need in a wingman is actually pretty different.

In fact, having the perfect wingman — based on your zodiac sign  can make ALL the difference.

You already know your strengths, thanks to constantly reading your horoscope, but having a wingman to enhance these strengths is so much better than him just saying something bland or boring until someone at the bar bites.

So, if you’re looking for a wingman to totally complement you (no, not compliment), keep reading. The answer might just be found in astrology!

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries needs a wingman to talk him up for the girl he’s trying to woo. It’s not that he can’t talk himself up well enough (or that he’s shy), but if he stands in front of a woman and lists off all of his most recent accomplishments, it’s only going to turn her off.

Having a wing man by his side to make him seem humble, yet still totally awesome will work wonders for him.

The best wingman for this job will be his best friend because he already knows everything about Aries.

The last thing Aries needs is to give a work acquaintance the rundown before they make it to the bar because he doesn’t know what to say about Aries – he just doesn’t have the time for that. Instead, going out with his best bro will give Aries the best chance of impressing someone.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Taurus would rather be in a serious relationship than just a casual hook-up, but his methods for finding his one and only range far and wide.

So, when he says he needs a wing man to back him up when he goes out, what he really wants is someone to help him find a serious prospect. His wingman should be focused on one thing, too: telling the cutie at the club that Taurus is total BF material.

He doesn’t need a wingman to brag about his muscles or talk about how much money his bro makes. All Taurus needs is for someone to back him up when he asks someone out.

He wants you to get a taste of what dating him would be like, and rather than sounding cocky or arrogant, having a wing man to do that for him is better for his ego.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini may be good at communication in certain situations, but when it comes to talking to someone he finds really cute, he suddenly becomes tongue-tied.

Everything he might have already planned to woo you with is now gone from his memory, which is NOT good – especially if he planned on having some fun tonight.

Gemini needs a wingman who will basically be his cheerleader. He needs someone to hype him up to talk to the cute stranger across the bar because even though he has it in him, he really just needs a kick in the pants.

Once he gets over the initial nerves, the conversation will start flowing, but before that, he needs a wingman who will get him excited before he chickens out completely.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer can get all kinds of crazy when it comes to trying to pick up women. For him, it’s a lot different to ask out a total stranger than it is to ask out someone he already knows from work or the gym.

That said, if he doesn’t have a wingman to guide him through it, he’s going to let his emotions talk him straight out of it.

Cancer’s wingman should be someone who will keep him calm and relaxed. He might get too into his head about what he should say, how his breath smells, if his shirt is wrinkled... but all he needs is a wingman to get him to take a big breath and focus on what he really wants out of this exchange: your number.

Once he calms down, Cancer can become incredibly smooth.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo already knows he’s a total catch, so he definitely doesn’t need his wingman hyping him up to talk to someone. That said, he still does need a wingman around because if he were alone at a party, he’d probably try to hit on everyone.

His wingman needs to be the one to slow him down and really narrow down his choices.

Leo might not feel like flirting with one gal in front of her huge group of friends, or he might want his wingman to get in on the action too, so having someone help him choose the perfect woman to chat up is essential.

His wingman should also be very observant because Leo hates wasting his time – if he already knows you’ve been snubbing every guy at the party, then he isn’t going to bother you, too.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgo hates to half-ass anything, which means he also hates going into a situation with only half of the facts. What he really needs in a wingman is someone who will chat up the woman he’s into before he swoops in.

That way, his friend can tell him everything he needs to know upfront, that way he can have a better conversation with her rather than just exchanging pleasantries.

Even if Virgo is only looking for a one night stand or just someone new to talk to, he would much rather the conversation actually go somewhere rather than talking in circles.

By having his wingman gather info beforehand, Virgo looks like the kind of guy who just goes with the flow instead of the guy he really is (the one who needs to know all the details before he makes a move).

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Libra would rather not brave it alone when picking someone up, so he really just needs a wingman to be his support. That said, if his friend is going to be there AND be his wingman, then he needs to do some work.

After introductions are made with you and your friend at a bar, Libra wants his wingman to flirt with your friend.

That way, Libra can have some intimate time with you, but his friend is still close by in case plans change. Plus, he doesn’t want to be interrupted as he’s trying to woo you, which can be hard to do in a group setting.

Being together, but still paired off makes it easier for Libra to work his charm. Plus, he feels that it’s only fair of him to find someone for his wingman, too.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpio is a pretty blunt person to begin with, so it only makes sense that he would want a blunt wingman to give him a hand.

Why? Because it sounds SO much better for the wingman to say, “Hey, my friend thinks you’re cute, can we buy you a drink?” rather than Scorpio himself saying, “You’re hot, let’s get a drink.”

Sure, Scorpio’s bluntness might be sexy or intriguing in some situations, but can seem downright arrogant in others. It’s up to his wingman to make that distinction so that Scorpio can still flirt with a cutie, yet isn’t leading with a bad first impression.

It might seem easier for him to just find a better way to approach women, but Scorpio still likes having someone he can trust help him out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Sagittarius is all about having a good time, but he can get a little serious when he’s nervous. This can serious damage his pick-up game (and reputation), so he needs a wingman to help him break the tension.

This means his wingman should tell a few jokes, get everyone feeling a little more comfortable, and buying the first round of drinks.

Not only will this put him in good favor with you, but it will also make you more interested in his friend (Sagittarius). Once Sag loosens up a bit, he can take over the conversation, but having a wingman around definitely helps.

Sagittarius is more comfortable with casual hook-ups (where conversation isn’t too important), so when it comes to actually having to make an effort and get to know someone, he often needs a little help.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn isn’t one to go blindly into any situation, but drilling someone he thinks is attractive with 20 questions doesn’t exactly work, either.

Capricorn needs a wingman who will help him figure out where to start and what to say… after he checks Tinder.

Yes, that might sound weird, but if Capricorn already knows you like going to the beach and watching hockey, he can sway your initial impression of him.

It’s not so much that he’s going to say, “Hey, I found you on Tinder, what’s up?” because he knows that sounds creepy. In reality, Capricorn can be a little picky when it comes to dating (and even flirting with someone), so if he can deduce that you’d be a possible match for him by having his wingman look you up on Tinder, he’s more apt to introduce himself.

It’s a different approach, but hey, that’s Capricorn for ya.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius likes flirting with new people and getting to know them, but bars and parties can be intimidating… and really loud. Of course, he knows asking you right away if you want to leave with him is totally off-putting and creepy, so he’s willing to take things slow – with the help of a more outgoing wingman.

Having a wingman to warm up the crowd, flirt with your friend, and all that is what Aquarius needs. Then, when the party starts winding down, his wingman can suggest going back to his place for more drinks.

That way, Aquarius can keep flirting with you, but he doesn’t have to keep trying to yell over the music. He prefers more intimate settings, so this will help him loosen up even more.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces has a lot to say to someone when he first meets, and the only reason why it often doesn’t go well is because his brain can’t decide which words should come out of his mouth first.

This “word vomit,” as it were, can really ruin his chances of hooking up with a hottie, so he desperately needs a wingman to give him tips on what to say.

His wingman also has to be more knowledgeable in flirting and dating than he is because Pisces will most likely need a lot of help.

This means knowing what to do with his hands when he’s talking, when to offer to buy her another drink, and when to lean in for a kiss – Pisces needs tips on it all. 

Once he learns from his wingman, he’ll be more willing to approach someone at the bar. He might still stumble over his words and get a little nervous, but a lot of girls will find this endearing, so it might just help him out.

Once you get to know Pisces, he’s very personable, but he just needs to get over his nerves at first before he can really let his personality shine.
