Do you know how to reach the man you love's heart?

The way to a man's heart is always different, according to what his horoscope says about him.

Of course, once you know his zodiac sign, you might think it's easy to get into his heart, but that's just not the case.



You can to work for it! Just like he has to work to get to your heart.

That said, there are some zodiac signs who are much more open and vulnerable to a new love that it might really be that easy.

And then there are the zodiac signs who will make you jump through hoops to get to their hearts because they want to make sure that you're in it for the long haul.

Either way, you play it, you want to make sure that the person you're getting close to your heart is serious about you, right?

I mean, if they are that close to your heart, the last thing you'd want is to have your heart broken.


Because even though you're risking heartbreak when you fall in love, you still want to do everything in your power to protect yourself from heartbreak – and make sure that you're not intentionally breaking someone else's heart.

Understanding the way to a man's heart, or more specifically, the way to the heart of the man you're interested in is more than just connecting with him and his interests, or cooking him dinner, or even having a deep conversation with him.

Sure, those things can help, but they're also just scratching the surface.


That said, the way to my boyfriend's heart is through his stomach, so while it may not be everything he needs to open up to love, tempting him with delicious food doesn't hurt the cause.

My point is, learning your man's zodiac sign is helpful in really digging down deep to what matters most to him when it comes to love.

If he loves food, maybe it's the type of food that unlocks another hint into how to win his heart.

Is he a big fan of comfort food? Maybe it reminds him of home and that's why he loves spending weekends at home watching television or just chilling with you – it makes him feel safe and comfortable to be in a place that's so close to him with someone he can trust to appreciate it, too.


We all have different ways of showing that we want to get to know someone better and we all have a unique key that unlocks our hearts, but if you really do want to win a man's heart because you care about him, then looking to astrology can be helping in figuring out the way to a man's heart, based on his zodiac sign, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The way to Aries’ heart sounds simple, but can be hard to keep up with if you know Aries. He looks for a partner who he can have a fiery romance with – almost immediately after meeting each other for the first time to the end of the relationship, no matter how long that takes.


For Aries, passion, and romance are staples in a relationship, so if you’re not ready for something big and bold, then you’re probably not ready for Aries.

The easiest way to his heart is to be willing to do the scary things. It can be hard for Aries to pace himself when he’s in love or lust, but until he figures out what works best for you two, he’s going to want to make things official fast.

He has a way of falling head over heels with pretty much everyone he dates, but as long as you’re willing to ride these waves of intensity and passion with him, you’ll find that being in love with Aries is like being on a constant adventure full of thrills and excitement.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Home is where Taurus’ heart is. He is the kind of person to make his home his kingdom, where all the magic happens. You can expect to be wooed with silk sheets, slow jams, and some candles when you’re with Taurus because he believes in setting the mood whenever he’s at home.

For him, his home is his sanctuary; he’s more than willing to let you in, but you have to play by his rules, which will lead you to his heart. And what are Taurus’ rules exactly?

While his methods of setting the mood might seem like he’s a high-maintenance guy, he really just needs you to be down for love and touch and lots of relaxation.


Touch is very important to him and it makes him feel like he’s really connecting with you whenever you spoon or hold hands. And if you’re the kind of person to be more into getting takeout instead of a fancy dinner out, Taurus will be smitten with you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Communication is key for Gemini, who is most well known for being the zodiac sign to ask for your phone number the first time you meet him. He isn’t always shy, but when it comes to getting to know someone new, he might take to texting and putting cute emojis on all of your social media outlets until he gets more comfortable around you.

That said, courting Gemini is a fast-paced game and if you can’t keep up, he’s most likely going to get bored. Gemini needs excitement in his relationships, but he still makes time to really get to know you.


The way to his heart is to play games with him to get to know him better, like playing 20 Questions (not the creepy version, though). Even if he seems non-committal and playful about opening up to you, don’t be afraid to big deep with your questions (and be honest when answering his) in between flirting sessions.

You’ll be surprised how raw and honest he is about what he’s looking for in love.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The way to Cancer’s heart is to prove your love to him through words AND actions. He isn’t the kind of zodiac sign to be able to thrive in a relationship on one or the other, so you need to be willing to put effort into both if you want to keep him around.


This means telling him how you feel honestly and openly, while also using touch and other gestures of affection to prove you’re not just wasting his time. When Cancer is first trying to decipher his feelings for you, he might seem a little shy or unwilling to open up to you.

This is kind of like his defense mechanism to make sure that you’re not just playing with him so you can break his heart. When he does finally risk a broken heart for love, he becomes a dreamy love machine who will do crazy romantic things like feed you chocolate-covered strawberries in bed and give you massages by candlelight.

When you find your way to his heart, expect to be there for a long time.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Think of Leo in love as a big cat – hey, he’s not the lion of the zodiac for nothing! He’s the kind of person to want to play with his mate in and out of the bedroom; always looking for a reason to nip and claw at you (nicely, of course) because that’s just the way he shows affection.


If you’ve ever watched nature shows with lions, then you know what it looks like when they play. You can expect that and much more when in a relationship with Leo.

The way to Leo’s heart is by being willing to have as much fun as possible with him. Whether that means pawing at each other in public or going on weekend adventures together, Leo is always looking for the next big thrill to share with you.

As long as you can feed his need for fiery passion, he’ll be more than willing to let you into his heart. Just know that his playfulness can get rough pretty quickly, which can actually make things a lot more fun, if you ask me.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If you want to find your way into Virgo’s heart, you need to have an open heart yourself – open to the possibility that anything can happen when you’re with Virgo. Virgo believes in a sensible and levelheaded approach to love, which is honestly, probably why he has the most stable relationships of all the zodiac signs.

It might seem a little sterile and methodical at first, but he’s only making sure that you really are in it for the long haul with him. The way to Virgo’s heart is to know exactly what you want in a relationship.

He’s not looking for games or an overwhelming sense of romance; he wants someone intelligent who he can share his life with and be able to look back on the relationship with a sense of pride and accomplishment.


He would much rather have no one than someone who is wrong for him, but once he does find The One, he is a generous and sensual lover who will take you to an entirely new plane of existence with his love-making. Yeah, it’s THAT good.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra’s whole world revolves around love and romance. When he’s in love with someone, you can almost see the hearts in his eyes. He expects a partner who will sweep HIM off of his feet, instead of the other way around.

Of course,  he also believes in harmonious love, which means that when you pull out all the stops for him, he’ll do the same for you.


The way to Libra’s heart is to have the same amount of love for love that he does/ He wants someone to share his passion for romance, including candle-lit dinners, walks under the moonlight, and calling each other at 3 in the morning just to say “I love you.”

Can you say awwwww?! Because if that’s not the cutest thing you’ve ever heard, then Libra probably isn’t the guy for you. If he can’t bring his grandchildren to tears with the stories he tells of how in love you two still are, then he’s not going to let you even close to his heart.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio can be a hard man to read, especially since he has a difficult time opening up to just anyone. In his eyes, relationships can go either way – they can turn into something long-term or they can fizzle out – but actually being vulnerable enough to fall in love is a scary prospect.


He obviously needs intensity and passion in his relationship, but he can sometimes lean to heavily on these traits so that he never has to slow down and show his vulnerable side.

If you want to find your way to Scorpio’s heart, you have to prove to him that you’re his friend, too; not just his lover. He needs someone who can be open about their own life and non-judgmental about his before he can really expose his tender underbelly.

When he knows that you are his safe space where he can be anyone and say anything, he’ll give you the key to his carefully-guarded heart. You should make him feel safe and sound, no matter what, before he can fall in love.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is a generous lover, which can be taken in one of two contexts. When he’s in an exclusive relationship, he can be the kind of guy to give more than he receives, but when he’s feeling non-committal, he can be the one who spreads his love around to anyone and everyone.


If you want to know the way to his heart, you have to be willing to let your relationship take its course. He needs someone who will grow with him; someone he can learn from. A relationship with Sagittarius will have its ups and downs – just like any zodiac sign’s will – but it’s you ability to stick through thick or thin with him that will really show him just how dedicated you are to this relationship.

If he thinks you’re going to flake on him at any hint of trouble, then you won’t be someone he knows he can grow with. Above all else, Sagittarius needs someone who can bring humor to the relationship, an open mind to the bedroom, and freedom and independence to everything else.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is the zodiac sign that sees a relationship as an investment. He wants to know that the time and effort he is putting into his relationship now is going to pay out big time later on.


His ideal partner is someone who is serious about making the relationship work, no matter what kind of obstacles you run into, and is dependable enough to ask him for help when you need it. Relationships for Capricorn should be equal parts friendship and romance.

The way to Capricorn’s heart is to be as dedicated to making the relationship last as he is. He wants someone he can build something stable and lasting with, rather than just having a strong of casual hook-ups.

Once Capricorn knows that you won’t get scared away when he starts talking about your future apartment together and what you’ll name your pets and children and all of that, you will see the crazy affectionate, VERY attentive lover that only a few people get to experience. Lucky you!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is one of those zodiac signs that is both not looking for something specific in a relationship and is actually very specific about what he wants in a relationship.


He tends to go for the people who are different and unique in their own way, whether that means bright pink hair and a tongue ring or someone who has a lizard for a pet and does slam poetry on the weekends.

But more than al of that, Aquarius is very attracted to intelligence. If you can show him that you’re not afraid to have the deep conversations that keep you up all night, he’s going to be very into you. He wants someone who is interesting and free, but the way to his heart is to make sure that you can maintain a balance between a solid relationship and a full life outside of the two of you.

He needs his independence to thrive and he wants to know that you are just as independent as he is. If you can be happy both together and apart, then your relationship will last a long time.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Romance and Pisces go together about as well as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches; this duo is just a classic pairing that pretty much never goes wrong when together. Of course, Pisces can be known for being hot and cold at times – thanks to those two fish of his, swimming both with and against the currents of love – but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to love him.

The way to Pisces’ heart is to connect with him on a soulful level. He is very influenced by poetry, music, and romance, so understanding why he picks the songs he does or why he reads the books he does is the first step in really knowing what’s going on in his head.

And going back to those two difficult little fishes, Pisces needs both affection AND space to be happy in a relationship. If you can show him that you love him with out smothering him, while also giving him enough space to be his own person without making him think you’re ghosting him, you’ll be taken into his full heart. It’s a difficult balance, but that’s what Pisces is all about: balance.
