How To Tell If She's Interested Vs. Just Wants To Keep Things Platonic, By Her Zodiac Sign

To be honest, there is no way to KNOW that anyone is into you for sure. However, depending on her astrological horoscope, there are going to be a few subtle clues one way or the other.

Let’s get real, there’s not a lot in this life more socially stressful than dating. When you’re really into someone, you really want them to be into you too (everyone gets this – you’re not alone). Eventually, everything they say and does become over-analyzed and over-thought until you’re practically hyperventilating (or at the very least have a stomach ache).

Trying to interpret subtle cues from someone you’re not close to yet is so stressful it makes you seriously consider becoming a monk (usually only on your ultra-dramatic days, but none the less).

When it comes to dating and romance there’s nothing better than knowing how someone feels about you. I mean, rejection sucks. But rejection means that you at least know it's time to move on. You can move on.  

Knowing is better than the constant stress of trying to figure it out. Sometimes it’s better to just come out and say it. But, before you do, check out how likely it is that she feels one way or the other to ease some of your anxiety.

Here's how to tell when she wants to be romantically involved vs. stay friends and keep things platonic, by her zodiac sign using each horoscope date and astrology.

1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries are one of the most honest out of the zodiac signs. In fact, more often than not an Aries is SO honest that it verges on brutal honesty.

An Aries gal isn’t likely to beat around the bush with how she feels about you. If she wanted to date you, she most likely would have said it by now. If she hasn’t said anything, she’s probably trying to spare your feelings. However, if you’re feeling brave, you can always ask – she’ll give it to you straight.

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

A Taurus tends to appreciate romance, which makes her a bit harder to read when it comes to her intentions towards you. If she is interested, she is likely to want to be romanced by you, which means that she’s unlikely to let you know easily how she feels (it’s not romantic if she must tell you she’s into you). She wants to be “swept off her feet”. Try a grand gesture and see how she responds.

Tip: Taurus’ tend to be very touchy-feely people, which means that just because she is affectionate with you doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s into you. She may just be a cuddly person. However, look for intimate touches as hints. For example, cuddling is one thing, but does she put her hand on your chest while she’s doing it? This could be a sign of intimacy and sexual affection for you, which are pretty clear signs she’s looking for more than a platonic relationship.

3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini’s are the most inconsistent out of the zodiac signs. To be honest, it’s unlikely that the Gemini girl you’re into even knows for sure how she feels about you. She’s probably going back and forth on it as you’re reading this.

The brutal truth is that the Gemini gal that is into you is still going to be torn about whether or not she wants a relationship with you. It may be time to decide how much you care about her. Is she worth the games? If she is looking for hints that she’s into you like touching your arms when she’s talking to you, including you in her fun activities (day trips, concerts, meals with friends, et.), and pay attention to the way she expresses her feelings for you – are you getting a lot of compliments? This could be her way of hinting at having feelings for you.

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers tend to be one of the most intuitive zodiac signs so it’s likely that she already knows that you want to know how she feels about you. The Cancer is easily attached to the people around them so just because you two feel close doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s into you romantically (she may just get attached to everyone). If she’s not interested she’s likely to try to hang out in groups to make her intentions more clear, whereas if she’s interested in a relationship she’ll probably try to get you alone frequently.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos tends to be such a dominant personality that it’s likely she would just come out and say what she wants out of the relationship. However, this isn’t always the case and you may need to test her feelings.

Leos tend to be highly self-confident (bordering on arrogance). Try “testing the waters” of her feelings for you by agreeing with her the next time she says something positive about herself. If she smiles big and tries to hide that she’s blushing, it may be a sign that she’s interested in a relationship with you. If she merely smiles delicately and doesn’t blush, she may want to keep things platonic.

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos tend to approach life methodically. Thus, if she DOES want to date, she is likely to want to do it “right”. So, for example, try something small like getting her a single rose and asking her to have dinner with you. The Virgos tendency towards shyness tends to mean that you will have to make all the first steps.

Pay close attention to the reaction you get. If she says yes and seems happy to go, give her a time when you’ll pick her up and go on a traditional “date” (she’ll enjoy the expected approach). On the date, look for the right time to tell her how you feel. I’d suggest after the food, but before the waiter asks about dessert (just in case).

7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Another indecisive zodiac sign. The Libras tend to hate being alone so, don’t assume that just because she spends a lot of time with you that she is into you; she may just enjoy being around you because she hates being alone. However, being such a social zodiac sign tends to mean that she has many friends. If this is the case and you know others are free and she is still choosing to hang out with you – this may be a sign that she’s trying to lay the ground work for a romantic relationship.

8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios tend to be good at expressing their emotions. It’s likely she has already expressed how she feels about you (maybe you just weren’t ready to hear it). Does she always go on about how you’re “such a good friend”? This could be her way of saying “I really like you … platonically”.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius’ tend to say anything, so it’s likely that if she liked you romantically that she would have already said something. However, they also have a great sense of humor, so you may as well risk letting her know how you feel anyway as you two are likely to be able to laugh it off if she doesn’t reciprocate your feelings.

Tip: be sure not to be clingy as Sags tend to dislike clingy people.

10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Understanding how things work socially, a Capricorn is likely to be honest about the way they feel towards you. With such a deep appreciation of family and tradition, they aren’t likely to waste much time waiting around. However, Capricorns also tend to be very easily annoyed so if she seems less annoyed by you than others, it’s likely because her romantic feelings are swaying her.

11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

The Aquarius is probably the hardest to read emotionally out of all the zodiac signs. Their tendency to run from emotional expression and be aloof mean that they’re hesitant to express their interest in romantic partners. This means that it is VERY likely that you will have to make the first move. However, they also tend to be optimistic and fight for the things that are important to them. So, if she feels the same way about you, she is likely to fight for your relationship.

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces tend to be more intuitive than others, so it’s likely that she already has an idea of how she feels about you (and how you feel about her). However, Pisces can also be quite fearful so you’re probably going to have to make the first move. But once you do, if she’s into you too, you are likely to achieve the best emotional relationship you’ve ever bee in.
