What Makes You Love Him, By His Zodiac Sign

If you were asked what makes your man so special, would you know what to say right away or would you have to think about it? Some of us know exactly why we love our partners – maybe it's because you think about it all the time or it's just the most obvious thing about him.

The rest of us need time to think about what we love most about our partners because there are so many amazing qualities to choose from. Either way, each zodiac sign has qualities about him that makes him lovable, whether he knows what those qualities are, or he needs someone who loves him (like you) to tell him what makes him special.

There are a lot of reasons to love someone, but sometimes it's hard to explain to others exactly what makes him so special in your eyes. Sure, you might be able to say that you love his smile or how he's an amazing listener, but sometimes it isn't that easy.

It might be something a little vaguer that you can't really explain to others because they wouldn't get it. Like how his ability to stay calm and collected in his own life somehow makes you feel like you'll always be safe in a relationship with him.

There's really nothing that you can give as an example for this, but it's just a feeling you get that the two are related. And it's the reason you love him so much – because he always makes you feel safe.

Each horoscope sign is lovable for a different reason, just like each sign has their own unique personality that makes them different from every other zodiac sign. And these different traits are what make you love him – because you love him for who he is.

He doesn't have to try to be someone he's not to get you to love him, and you don't have to pretend to love him because the feelings are already there. Maybe you already know you love him or maybe you're not sure just yet, but you have a feeling.

The signs that prove you love him always sound cheesy when you're not in love with someone, but they are real. Even if you don't know the exact reason why you love him, he's still the first thing on your mind in the morning and the last thing on your mind at night.

Whenever something happens – good, bad, weird – he's the one you want to share it with. When you're with your friends or family, you always subconsciously find a way to bring his name up in conversation.

And you always find yourself rereading the cute conversations you have with each other over text. Even if the thought of being in love is scary and makes you feel vulnerable, he's still the one you want to be in love with because he makes you feel safe and important.

And maybe that is the reason why you love him, or maybe it's something different. All you know right now is that you do love him – whether you've known this for a while or you're just now starting to realize it – which is a very exciting feeling.

But if you are still curious to know what it is about him that hooked you, per astrology, here's why you love him so much, based on his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries' confidence and driven personality make him super to you – and it's one of the things you love most about him. Anyone who can do anything as confidently as he can is someone to admire. More than that, you love that he's always teaching you how to be confident, too.

Aries is a force to be reckoned with. He knows how to command a room and be a leader – something you secretly find intoxicating. You love that he can take care of you and teach you how to take care of yourself, all at the same time.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

What makes Taurus so lovable is how committed he is to you and the relationship. Once you make things official between you two, he is always on his toes, ready to give you exactly what you need to be happy with him.

Not a lot scares him away, either, which is what makes him such an amazing problem solver and long-term partner. When he's with you, he's with you for the long haul. Not only that, but he's also a really good friend. When you just want to talk or hang out, he's always there for you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is probably the most fun person you'll ever be lucky enough to know. He's always the life of the party and always down to do something with you. When you're with him, every day is exciting. You love that he knows how to have fun, as well as cheer you up when you're down.

You also love that he's able to turn pretty much everything into an adventure. There are no boring days together because he simply doesn't do boring. Even something as mundane as laundry day or grocery shopping becomes fun when you're with him – and you love that about him.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

What you love most about Cancer is his dedication to everything he does. When something means a lot to him, he commits himself to succeed in it, no matter what. Whether that's in his career or in his relationship with you, Cancer puts his all into sticking with something.

Cancer has enough ambition for the two of you, which only makes you want to work harder in life. You love how inspired you get when you're with him; he makes you feel like anything is possible. And, with him, anything is possible.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You absolutely love Leo's optimism – it's contagious. He is literally always able to look on the bright side of something or find the silver lining in a bad situation. You don't know how he does it, but he makes you feel like everything will be okay if you just trust him.

He's also brave enough to try anything without being scared. That confidence is admirable and only makes you love him even more. You love that he can use his optimism to succeed in everything he does in life, all because he refuses to let failure bring him down.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You love Virgo for the way he loves you. He's always so helpful and present, and you love that he wants to take care of you. For him, acts of service are how he shows you that he loves you – by helping you around the house, giving you advice when you need it, and simply being there.

You also love the way he always seems to have a good head on his shoulders. He never panics, gets overwhelmed, or makes rash decisions. When you're with him, you feel secure and safe. His level-headedness and intelligence are unassumingly to you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The most lovable thing about Libra is how thoughtful he is. He's always thinking about the needs of others and often puts you and everyone else before himself. His selflessness is admirable and makes you want to be a more selfless person yourself.

In addition to being selfless, you love that Libra is generous, too. He's the kind of person to always save the last bite of his meal for you or surprise you with a thoughtful gift. Everything Libra does for you is full of love and kindness.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You love that Scorpio can be both protective of you and not clingy or overbearing at the same time. When you're his, you're his for life – no exceptions. But without you even having to tell him what you need, he knows when you need him and when you need space.

You love that Scorpio will always go above and beyond to protect you from the hard stuff in life. Even if he can't take your stress or pain away, he knows how to make you feel better about it. He is deeply understanding and non-judgmental, too. He knows what you need when you need it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is very wise, and his wise personality teaches you how to focus on the things that matter in life rather than get caught up in things that don't. You love that he can solve your problems and give you advice when you need it, all with just a few thoughtful words.

You love that he makes you feel like there's a deeply unbreakable and unique connection between you too – one that's on a mental and emotional level. He's uncomplicated and straightforward. You love that he can be honest and upfront with you always.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You love how goal-oriented Capricorn is. I mean, there are a lot of people like that, but none like Capricorn. When you want something in a relationship, he will do everything in his power to give it to you, no matter how much time or effort it will take to do it.

Capricorn always works hard to give you want you want and need. Relationships are investments to him, so he knows that if he wants to keep you around, he has to work hard to make you happy. You love how dedicated he is to you because it makes you want to work harder for him, too.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Being with Aquarius is like being in the anti-relationship. You love that he's always willing to try new things and make his own rules – when you're with him, you don't have to conform to what society says a relationship should be. His open-mindedness is refreshing and admirable.

You also love how down-to-earth Aquarius is. He's always willing to own up to his mistakes and be honest with you instead of play games with you and make things complicated for no reason. He's also crazy smart but never makes you feel inferior. He's your equal in love and life.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Not only is Pisces one of the easiest zodiac signs to love, but he's also one of the best signs to relate to. HIs empathetic nature makes you feel like you're always on the same page, which is a lot more important to a relationship than people realize.

You love that he always understands you without words. You love how intuitive he, as well. He's somehow always able to anticipate your needs without you having to say anything. He even knows how to solve problems before there are any problems to begin with. *Swoon*
