Why He Hasn't Asked You Out On A Date, According To Astrology

You're almost certain that when you gaze into your would-be lover's eyes they're daydreaming about you too. He can be a shy Taurus with a deep soul and you just love that about him. Or maybe he's a simple, yet quiet Cancer with a zany personality. But when it comes down to asking you out and making that first move, he hasn't done anything yet.

It’s tough to gauge whether or not your crush is feeling the same way you are when they won’t just ask you out. Is he uninterested or just shy? Is he not on the market or filled with the same anxiety you feel yourself?

Sure, every time you two spend time together he's super nice—almost beyond friendship status. He brings you gifts, but not of a romantic nature. He always opens the door for you, but maybe he's just being polite.

Every possible sign seems to have a dual interpretation: one of friendship and one of courtship. How are you supposed to confidently move forward and take your relationship to the next level if you’re not getting any clear communication?


Like the evening clouds that conceal the stars themselves, there are always cosmic clues behind someone's cool exterior, and it can relate to the personality of their zodiac sign's horoscope. 

Look up your crush’s zodiac sign to find out what hints he'll unconsciously give you when he's interested, and to understand why he would decide to hide his true feelings for you, according to astrology! 

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are very serious, and unfortunately, that can turn into pessimism. Your crush likely believes he’ll embarrass himself by approaching you. Encouraging him with flirtation or even boldly approaching your enchanting Capricorn will get you the best result.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The aloof nature of the Aquarius is complemented by their avoidance of emotional expression. Sure, he's passionate and can talk about his hobbies endlessly, but coming forward about emotions that makes him feel vulnerable is a lot for him. Be patient with your crush and make sure to create a space that feels safe for him. Eventually, he will confirm your suspicion that he, too is interested.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The emotional Pisces can be incredibly fearful, and this is exacerbated by their martyrdom. What might be mildly unpleasant to someone else in a relationship can feel like deliberate hurtfulness to a Pisces. Approach any Pisces suffering from their last relationship delicately, and give him a reason to trust again.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The impatient Aries is always looking for action and adventure and is also extremely competitive. If they think you’ll reject him, they may jump to moving on. It’s not that you aren’t captivating, it’s that they’re afraid of losing. So, you might approach him first or go a little extra with your flirting. Go Crush #1!

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Sudden changes will undoubtedly send your favorite Taurus into a tailspin. If you’ve been acting differently around your crush, perhaps trying to get their attention, dial it back. Or, if he's experiencing upheaval in their life, make a point of being there for him and fostering his stability, even if it’s just by being the most reliable friend you can be. When the Taurus is no longer spooked, that’s when you’ll learn where you stand.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are infamous for their inability to make a decision, and this is probably why your crush hasn’t committed to making a move already. Perhaps he can’t decide quite how to approach you, or even whether or not you like him! Open the door wide for them to ask you out, and if they still don’t, you might have to take the wheel.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

There might as well be symbols for Cancer next to the dictionary entry for, “sensitive.” The highly-emotional Cancer likely can’t stop thinking about you and is overwhelmed by feelings. Create a space for both of you to discuss your emotions, and your crush will be all yours.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Okay, how is it possible that the roaring Leo, filled with confidence and sometimes even arrogance, hasn’t shown their true feelings for you? There are two possibilities here. First, Leos have a tendency to be at least mildly lazy, so maybe showing their emotions and wooing you just sounds like a lot of effort. That leads to our next point. While Leos can be wonderfully romantic lovers for the right person, they themselves expect to be treated like royalty. If they don’t feel they’re being adequately appreciated you probably won’t get so much as a head nod from them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Oh, Virgo, our natural workaholics. While very ambitious in the workplace, Virgos are otherwise quite shy. Your crush will work up the nerve to approach you in time, but while you’re waiting, do things with your crush that bring a Virgo out of his shell. Enjoy the opportunity to get to know your crush even better!  

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Sure, Libras are well known for being diplomatic. But, that doesn’t mean that they’re the best at being direct. It’s likely that your Libra crush has been dropping what seem like obvious hints to them, but they’re probably terribly subtle. Be on the lookout for their understated signals of interest.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Usually, Scorpios are very assertive, but sometimes that’s overshadowed by their suspicions. Your crush may be wondering whether or not you have eyes for someone else. Scorpios also tend to have trust issues, so if there’s no solid foundation of friendship between you two it may take some time for your dreamy Scorpio to come forth and declare their feelings. Work on building that friendship and trust to learn the Scorpio's inner world. 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Our Sagittarius friends are known for being intensely curious, so if your crush still hasn’t offered to take you on a date, they’re probably still scoping you out. Give them the opportunity to find out more about you in an intimate conversation. Go out for coffee with your Sagittarius crush (it's not automatically a date!).
