How He'll Stay Emotionally Open, Per Astrology
Love, Zodiac

It's not easy to find someone you emotionally connect with, and when you do, you want to keep the communication lines open and close. Having an emotional connection with someone is a lot different than having a physical connection with them. You can be with someone physically and still no nothing about them. Your body doesn't really care what is middle name is, right?

No, all it cares about is getting taken care of by the other person, if you get my drift. Emotional connections can be just as intense as physical ones, but they are usually much deeper and built on a stronger foundation.

When you're emotionally connected to someone, you become somewhat of an empath to them. You're able to understand their mood swings and emotions better, and you know how to get them to open up to you because you know how their brain works.

You might already have an emotional connection to a zodiac sign right now. Maybe you know that Pisces needs to know he's in a safe space before he can open up or that Gemini feels more comfortable opening up over text message than face-to-face.

However they open up to you, you still have an emotional connection with them. In general, people want to know that you're on their side. He isn't likely to open up to you if he feels like your conversation is going to turn into a competition into who has more to vent about.

In any relationship, it should always be you and your partner working against the problem, not you working against each other. You should always be on the same team as your man, otherwise, you'll never have that emotional connection you want with him.

If you want to connect with him on an emotional level, you need to show him that you value what he has to say and that you're willing to listen and help however you can. If you show him that you don't really respect him, he's going to put up emotional walls that will never come down.

If you want to prevent him from becoming emotionally disinterested, you have to get to know him on a personal level. Knowing the kind of person he is helping, but so does learning more about his zodiac sign. Make him feel confident to be himself and to open up – he needs to know that you're going to listen to him no matter what he says.

For some zodiac signs, just listening and being there when he needs you is enough to keep him coming back to you. For others, space and alone time is important. He will still need you, but he'll also need his freedom to work his problems out on his own time.

What makes an emotional connection strong isn't necessarily being physically there for each other all the time, but knowing that you can rely on this one person to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on when you need it, be able to relate to what you're talking about and be there for you in person when you do just need someone around.

According to astrology, here's how to keep him emotionally interested, according to his horoscope.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You know that feeling you get when all of your hard work finally pays off and you can now revel in the pleasure of your success? Yeah, Aries is all about that life, too. The best way to keep him emotionally interested is by becoming the prize to all his hard work.

He loves the chase right before he locks you down because it challenges him to really sweep you off your feet. But after he catches you and makes it official, he wants to know that the chase wasn't the most exciting part of your relationship. Show him that you're a valuable part of his life by making your relationship a priority and he'll be happy to have you in his life.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Emotional closeness is very important in a relationship, but for some zodiac signs, so is physical closeness. One thing that always draws Taurus in is a partner who can let him know he's special without words. Touch is addicting to him, especially when it's used as a way to get closer.

You can keep him emotionally interested in you by using touch to emphasize his importance in your life. Hold his hand when you have deep talks, stroke his hair while you're bingeing Netflix, and let your fingers brush when you cook dinner together. It might not seem like a lot, but it means the world to him that you want to be so close.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Have you ever been in a relationship where you spend so much time together that you practically mirror each other? Yeah, that's what being with Gemini is like. It's very easy to become almost twin-like when you're together, but it's important to keep your "twinning" positive.

Being with Gemini means mirroring his expressive personality and love of verbal sparring. This is all well and good, but remember that Gemini is quick and energetic. With a sharp tongue and dry wit, it can be hard to keep him interested if you can't keep up. He loves someone he can argue with, but fight fair or he'll think you're just taking cheap shots at him for no reason.


CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Nothing is sexier than having a partner appreciate you. Gifts and intimacy are nice, but have you ever had someone say thank you for just being there for them? Yeah, Cancer eats that up. You can guarantee he'll fall head over heels for you if you just tell him how much you value him.

Cancer is one of those zodiac signs that thrives on emotions and feelings, so showing him gratitude for who he is to you will always keep him coming back for more. Show him he's loved and appreciated by doing something nice for him or sending him a heartfelt text message complete with all the heart emojis, and he'll be all over you next time you see him.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

It always feels good when you tell someone about one of your accomplishments and they totally flip out because they're so proud of you, right? Right! Nothing feels better than knowing that the person you're dating is your number one fan.

This, coincidentally, is the best way to keep Leo emotionally interested in you. Praise him and cheer him on – he works his butt off in everything he does, and sometimes he needs someone to recognize that. You should always be on the same team when you're dating him; a relationship with him will only work when he feels like you can conquer the world together.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

It's so easy to put your flashiest foot forward when you start dating someone – you want to make the best first impression, after all. But that doesn't always attract the right people, like Virgo. Virgo definitely wants to get to know your best self, but you shouldn't be someone you're not.

The best way to keep him emotionally interested in you is to connect on an intellectual level. Virgo wants to know that you're someone he can have deep conversations with, not someone only worried about how good they look or if they can out-flirt him. He wants to pick your brain and get to know the real you, so you better be ready for a connection that transcends this plane.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Intimacy is not something that can replace emotional interest, but it can definitely help with a Libra. It's not so much the physical aspect of intimacy that can keep him interested but the closeness between you two. When you mutually fulfill your desires, you're emotionally attuned.

Keep him coming back for more by getting adventurous in the bedroom. Listen to what he wants and what he'd be interested in trying, rather than calling the shots and hoping he can keep up with you. When you show him that you can listen to what he wants in any situation, you're showing that he's worth caring about.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio doesn't open up to just anyone because he truly believes that the strongest and most secure relationships are the ones between the fewest amount of people. The more people you tell your business to, the more likely you are to get your heart broken.

If you really want to keep him interested, you have to show him that you can keep his secrets. He can be interested in you and have no intention of sharing any part of his personal life with you, so prove to him that you can be the one person he can go to for advice or vent to – all without worrying that you'll spill the beans – means the world to him.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is one of those guys who always puts his best foot forward when he meets someone new, even if his best foot isn't necessarily his true foot. What I mean is that he knows how to charm anyone by being the person they want him to be because he knows it always works.

If you're really into him, you can get him to show you his true self... by revealing your true self to him. He wants to know that his relationships are built on something real, so he doesn't often show his true self until he knows you're worth it. Tell him an embarrassing story, dig up a small sliver of your tragic past, or just be honest with him – he'll appreciate it and you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is the kind of guy who can endure almost everything. Not much stresses him out, but even if it did, there's a slim chance he'd actually talk about it. Capricorn likes to be the kind of person other people know can handle anything, even if he desperately needs a break.

The surefire way to keep him emotionally interested is to lift some of that stress off his shoulders. You don't have to be his savior, but you should be his safe place. If he knows he can come to you to just unwind, relax, and forget about the stuff that stresses him out, you'll always be the first one on his mind, day or night.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You know those people who say a lot but not really anything at all at the same time? That's Aquarius. Aquarius loves making friends and meeting new people, but he doesn't like to really delve into his personal life until he knows you're going to stick around.

Sure, he has a lot of friends, but what he really wants is to find a best friend. You can be that BFF, lover, and keep him emotionally interested by encouraging him to open up about himself. Sometimes, all he needs is a safe environment to let the feels out. It might take him a while to get comfortable around you, but if you're willing to tough it out, he'll be grateful to have you around.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is a conundrum. He's both incredibly kind and friendly, but he's also constantly on guard. One of his greatest fears is being mocked or belittled for the person he is, so he tends to shy away from real relationships for fear of them not working out.

If you want to keep him emotionally interested, you have to be willing to put in the work. Think of him like a frightened animal – he's probably more nervous around you than you are around him, so you have to prove that he's safe. Be accepting of the man he is, and he'll warm up to you fast. Stand by him, lift him up, and listen when he speaks; show him he's special to you.
