How To Keep Him Interested In You, According To Astrology & His Zodiac Sign

Capturing a man's heart is one thing. For some, it’s easy. You talk, you establish you like one another, and your relationship follows this natural progression.

For others—at least in my experience—it’s not that simple.

Eventually, it happens, and when you’re finally together, it can feel like magic. The honeymoon stage hits hard. And then poof! It quietly slinks away, and sometimes you feel like you’re an old couple coming onto thirty years of marriage.

All relationships take work. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may seem perfectly happy, but even royalty have to work. Harry is a Virgo; Meghan is a Leo. They have much to learn from one another, but Leos’ spontaneity can’t always mesh well with Virgos’ stability. If Meghan knows how to use her Leo spirit to her advantage, however, she can keep her prince wanting more.

Maybe you’re not in a royal relationship. There are only so many princes in the sea. But you’ve got a pretty damn good fish, and even after you’ve reeled him in you want him to still nibble at your bait. What kind of bait to offer, though?

It helps to know your strengths. Your star's horoscope sign, of course, plays into that. By now you know him well enough, his range of likes and dislikes. He knows you pretty well, too. How to keep him interested is up to you.

One way to do this is to dig deep and look beyond your governing personality traits. What makes you different? What makes you you? What makes him lucky to have you? How can you play your weaknesses to your strengths?

Here are some zodiac-based tips and tricks on how to keep him interested for each horoscope sign, per astrology

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are all about fireworks and borderline blunt honesty. Their partner must be used to this by now. One way to surprise him is to tone it down a bit and add an air of mystery here and there. Instead of letting him know what’s on your mind, have him guess.

For example: tell him early in the week you’ve got something planned—he’ll be expecting something wild. Hint that it’ll be something different, but don’t let him know any details. Instead, treat him to a quiet candle-lit dinner in. Take a step back and listen to what he has to say.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Venus is Taurus’ ruling planet, so love is their wheelhouse. They like staying in their comfort zone. Show him that sometimes you’re willing to venture outside of it, whether it’s inside the bedroom or not.

Since you enjoy the safety of being in the same environment, go somewhere different. Tell him you’d like to go to a concert with different music than your usual scene, or try a radically different food. Your willingness to try something new will keep him wanting different experiences with you.

3. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Something a Gemini can do to surprise their partner is slow down. They love excitement and passion through both communication and touch. Something as simple as a movie night in can excite him, after a constant flow of excitement.

He may be on his toes because of Gemini’s volatility. Be sure to let him know once in a while you’re committed to him. It’s good for a Gemini to break up their routine, so cooling the routine of intensity can be good for you—and for him.

4. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are already dedicated to their partner, sometimes to a fault. Regardless, he should be lucky to have a Cancer in his life. They are deeply empathetic and emotional. This is a gift in itself.

These traits, however, run the risk of turning into selfishness. To keep him on his toes, check in with him. Ask him if there’s anything he’d like to do or say, like bucket list items, sans judgment. And then don’t judge him. It may turn out to be something you both enjoy.

5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

This fire sign is feisty and loyal to others, but above all, themselves. Leos constantly search for self-awareness and value their independence. With all your internal focus, you can surprise him by taking subtle notice of his needs, maybe ones he doesn’t realize himself. Make an effort to acknowledge them openly.

It’s also important for Leos to show their love by paying acute attention to their partner. Leos have many friends, for good reason. But they should make sure their man feels loved, valued, and as important as the internal thoughts Leos face.

6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Given Harry’s history, it may be surprising for some to think of Virgos as shy. Virgos are analytical and pay attention to the smallest details. They are careful lovers, but when in love, they are trusting and devoted.

Anyone in a relationship with a Virgo should feel special—but as Virgos tend to be closed-off emotionally, the best way for a Virgo to keep him interested is to show their feelings once in a while. For others, it’s simple to say something like “I love you.” For Virgos, these words carry a lot of weight, and their partner should recognize that.

7. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras thrive on order. The more things are written out, the better. Their partner should know if they’re with a Libra, they’re probably in for the long haul. Libras are pulled towards tradition—which means sometimes they need to break from tradition, even for a little bit, to surprise him every now and again.

This doesn’t mean to completely break with traditions you and he have made, like pasta dinners on Friday nights. Maybe it means modifying them or making new ones. Different ones to push you out of your comfort zone a little bit, like trying a new restaurant or taking a different couples’ dance class once a month.

8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Like Cancers, anyone who is in a relationship with a Scorpio should feel a little special, since it takes a while for them to build up enough trust to be in one. They’re also the most sensual of the signs, so in that regard, their partner must be on their toes most of the time.

Scorpios are generally leaders, so one way to surprise him is to let go of the reins for a bit. Completely. Let him take the lead sometimes. Who knows, maybe he’ll surprise you!

9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Fellow Sags, it’s hard enough for us to be in a relationship due to our traveling spirit. Relatively speaking, it should be easy for Sagittarius to keep their partners on their toes. We’re adventurous and always down to try something new.

One way to keep him wanting more is to try sincerity once in a while. You have a good sense of humor, but not everything’s a joke. Remind him how important he is to you. Genuine expressed gratitude is special from a Sagittarius.

10. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, belonging to the element of Earth, is naturally grounded. They are usually bound to traditions. This means they aren’t really prone to change or spontaneity, which is usually a first thought when considering how to keep him interested.

Without being particularly spontaneous, one way Capricorns can surprise him is to share their emotions. It’s hard for them to open up, but when they do, it’s meaningful--a love letter, though seemingly cliché, can go a long way.

11. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius are people persons. They like being surrounded by others, whether they’re helping them or just hanging out. Thus it seems natural to suggest spending some extra alone time with him.

But there’s something to be said for your helpful spirit. Try to engage him in a cause or activity that’s important to him. For example, if he likes running, offer to do a 5k with him supporting a charity. Even if you don't like running ... though perhaps that might change after accomplishing it with your partner right next to you.

12. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are romantics at heart. They are loving and loyal, maybe even a little too much. Pisces’ love, in moderation, already is a way to keep him invested.

But something that can shake things up in your relationship is taking a step out of your comfort zone with him. This doesn’t mean something radical like skydiving--this may be a little much for most Pisces, who are prone to fear. Tell him you’re up to try something new and remember he’ll be there right by your side.
