Girls have their own secret language that only they understand, and the way that you understand her better is through her astrology horoscope and zodiac sign.

Which is why, especially in matters of love, guys find it so hard to read us. It's also why guys think girls send mixed signals.

You might think you can predict what girls will say and do when it comes to love and relationships, but the only thing you as a man can do is predict that you’ll probably be totally confused.

Take saying “I love you” as an example. Girls say “I love you” to pretty much everyone and everything.

Someone at Starbucks lets her order coffee first because she’s running late? She’ll tell them she loves them.

Comes home from a night of partying to remember that she saved some take-out food from the night before for this exact moment?

She loves herself for thinking ahead — and she loves takeout food.

Best friend picks her up after work so she doesn’t have to take the bus home? That’s why she loves you!

So how are you supposed to know if, when she finally says those three little words to you after you’ve been together for so long, she really means it?

More specifically, when she says that she loves you, but suddenly doesn’t seem to act like she does.

Does she love you in a serious relationship kind of way or does she love you like day-old pizza when she’s drunk?

You know you’ve been in this situation before because this all sounds almost too familiar.

And girls, you probably know exactly what I’m talking about because you too have been a little too vague about your true feelings for a guy — maybe on purpose or for another reason — and now he’s starting to ask questions.

If you ask me (and probably a lot of other people), there’s a big difference between loving someone and being in love with someone.

I know, I know, it sounds like I’m splitting hairs here, but it’s important to you if your gal distinguishes between the two sentiments or if she’s just one big ball of love who means it every time she says it.

But it also doesn’t matter what side you’re on, really, because when you finally feel comfortable saying those three words, it can be scary.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve said “I love you” to someone else before, either.

This is an entirely new person that you have brand new feelings for, so you want to say it right.

And maybe you’ve had your heart broken before, which would make sense as to why it’s hard for you to say you love someone and actually mean it.

So, yes, she might have said that she loves you and is now acting like she doesn’t, but it’s only because she’s working through these new feelings.

And if you know her zodiac sign, it’s that much easier to really get to the bottom of this.

Because astrology can shed light on some of love’s biggest questions.

And even if you have to wait a little bit before she’s ready to say it again, you can at least know what’s really going on when it seems like her feelings are changing.

Keep reading to find out why she says she loves you, but acts like she doesn’t, based on her horoscope using astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

For Aries, saying I love you is a scary experience — one that gets her heart pumping and her adrenaline up, and not in the way she usually likes.

She may be all about getting her kicks doing crazy, adventurous things, but there are some things out there that not even Aries can do bravely.

But when it comes to opening up about her feelings, she feels nervous and exposed.

When she says she loves you, don’t think she doesn’t mean it because she most certainly does. In fact, when she does finally say she loves you, take her words exactly as she says them.

She doesn’t distinguish between loving and being in love, and when she says it, she means it. If she’s acting like she doesn’t love you, it’s only because this is uncharted territory and she needs to adjust.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus loves to be in love and can often lose her head in how wonderful life is now to the point where she’s almost walking on air. But even though Taurus falls hard for you doesn’t mean she’s not cautious, as well.

She may have a lot of love to give, but she needs to know the feelings are mutual first. If she thinks you don’t feel the same, she’ll keep her feelings to herself.

Sometimes, Taurus gets a little over-excited and says she loves you before she’s ready (whether you say it back or not). So, when it seems like she doesn’t love you, even though you heard her say it, it’s probably because she’s retreating into that cautious side of herself.

Don’t think of this as her way of second-guessing herself, but more of a way for her to confirm that she really does love you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

If you’ve gotten a Gemini to tell you that she loves you, treasure that moment because this is a sign that is terrified of commitment. Once she does take the plunge she’s not as scared, but until she does she’s a ball of nervous energy.

She tends to overthink every word she says and thing she does around you until she knows for sure if she loves you, but she still has her tells.

Saying I love you is a BIG deal to Gemini. If she says it and then acts like she doesn’t love you, it’s only because she’s still ruminating on what she said and how it makes her feel.

But even if she suddenly acts cold, you can tell she does love you by how she always checks in with you throughout the day with texts. Even if she only sends you a few emojis, she’s just telling you she loves you in her own way.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

When Cancer loves you, she wants you to know everything there is to know about herself. She’ll take you around to meet her family and friends, tell you about all her embarrassing moments, and probably even show you that weird mole of hers on her back.

But when she finally says I love you out loud, it’s not uncommon for her to suddenly start acting like she doesn’t love you at all. For Cancer, it’s all about timing. She feels like she needs to go by a script when she loves someone instead of letting her feelings come naturally.

She would rather date a few months, then say I love you — even if she already knows how she feels. Instead of trusting that what she feels is right, she has to do it the “right” way or no way at all. If she’s acting weird now, it’s probably because she feels like she said it too soon.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

A Leo in love is a beautiful site. She has a big smile on her face, she’ll probably skip a little when she’s walking with you, and most importantly she just wants to be with you.

It doesn’t even matter what it is you’re doing together; when Leo loves you, she just wants to spend time with you. Now, she’s ready to vocalize how she feels, but as soon as she does, she freaks out. What gives?

With Leo, she’s most likely worried that the dynamic between you two will change now that she’s said she loves you. Before, you two were the best of friends and now, she feels like the way you act together will have to change.

It’s not going to change, but for her, the last thing she wants to do is ruin a good thing. Give her time to realize that love doesn’t change anything, it makes things better.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is pretty honest about her feelings. Even when she overthinks for no reason, she still ends up coming to the truth. Whether you’ve said you love her yet or not, she will say those words when she feels like it’s right, but she still expects things from you.

If she’s acting cold, it’s because she wants to see a conscious effort that you love her — instead of just saying the words — before she can fully relax and let love take her away.

It might seem very hard to truly know what a Virgo is thinking after she has said she loves you, especially because she tends to keep you at arm’s length the whole time, but there is one tell that Virgo can't hide.

When she really does love you, she will do little things for you, like buy you coffee in the morning or bring you lunch to work, that prove she really does care for you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

When Libra is really into you, you can tell because she tends to make a HUGE effort around you. It’s not so much that she makes an effort with her appearance, but more so that she tries to be there for you when you need her and makes time for you every day; all so you know just how much she cares. But when it comes to saying I love you, she clams up.

Libra is not an initiator or an instigator, period. She isn’t usually the girl who says I love you first because those words are a big deal to her. So, it’s very possible that she said it too soon or that she’s so in shock that she was finally able to express her feelings for you honestly. After she says she loves you, she needs time to get used to the idea  — kind of like getting used to a new pair of shoes.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Before Scorpio can say those three little words to you, she needs to know that she can trust you. There’s no way she can put her eggs all in one basket if she isn’t 100 percent certain about you.

She might do this by testing how far you’ll go for her love or just by asking you outright if you’re being real with her, but love is a serious matter to Scorpio.

When she finally is ready, she wants it to be perfect. If she ends up saying I love you and then acting like she doesn’t, it could be because she missed her opportunity to make it impactful.

She’d rather say I love you in front of a fireworks show than on the couch watching Netflix, so she may be bummed about the delivery, but NEVER about saying it to you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is a commitment-phobe. To her, commitment and I love you’s equal being tied down to someone for the rest of your life, and to be honest that really freaks her out.

Of course, she’s also incredibly scared that she’ll put herself out on the line and work up the nerve to say I love you and you won’t return her feelings. Because then, she’ll have betrayed her true self and gotten hurt in the process.

You can still tell Sagittarius loves you by how affectionate she is with you, but actually being vocal about her feelings takes time. It might be easier for her to say it if she’s a little drunk, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t still count.

She wants to say it, but she’s also terrified. So, if she’s acting weird about it now, it’s just because it’s a foreign concept for her to get used to, being in love.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Before Capricorn can say anything even remotely close to I love you, she wants to know that you will keep her safe always. She doesn’t want to be honest with you and tell you how she feels, just for you to turn your back on her and end the relationship.

When she feels like she might be ready to say she loves you, she’ll relax around you more and not be so serious. But now that she’s said those three words, it feels like she’s going back to being more serious and reserved around you.

This is normal behavior, but she will still need your help getting back into that relaxed state again. Right now, she’s feeling really vulnerable. She wants to know that everything will still be the same after she says I love you instead of worrying that you think she didn’t mean it and doesn’t want to be with you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

An Aquarius in love is someone who is so comfortable being herself around you that it surprises you to know she has a goofy, crazy side. It’s not that she hides her true self from you, but more so that she wants to make sure you’re the one before she shows you her whole self.

She desperately wants to be herself in front of someone she loves, even if that means being a little weird. If Aquarius tells you she loves you and then immediately starts acting like she doesn’t, it’s because she wishes she could have said it differently.

To her, I love you is a cut-and-dry, boring phrase that everyone uses. She’d rather carve it into a tree or sing you a song instead of doing it like everyone else. Her mood won’t last long, but just let her know that you love her too and it’ll remind her that it isn’t just about the words at all.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is the type of person to protect her heart whenever she’s in a relationship because she doesn’t want to get hurt. The worst thing to her is having her heart broken.

So when it comes to saying that she loves you, she wants to double and triple check that it’s the right time to say it. So, when she finally does say it, take it to heart because she really means it.

If she starts acting like she doesn’t love you even though she already says it, it’s only because she’s doing her double and triple checking before she gives into love completely.

Give her time instead of pressuring her because she has to be the one to ease into it, not you. She’ll come around and when she does, she’ll be more comfortable with you being the one to take care of her instead of her taking care of herself.
