How To Make Him Ditch His Cell Phone For One Night, Per Astrology

Cell phones are great and can make communicating with your loved ones easier, but they can also limit your ability to be in the moment. Some men love to stay connected with the world around them.

They may hate when they miss a sport stat, or due to work, need to be in constant communication with a boss or client.

Communication for quite a few zodiac signs, no matter what their gender, is vital to a relationship as well. As a couple, you may stay connected with memes, jokes, or asking questions about each other's day when apart. Those types of habits can be addicting, so when you're together and you want him to ditch his cell phone and pay attention to you, it can be a challenge. 

If you find that your partner is always on his phone during meals, when you’re cuddling on the couch or after you’re both home from work, it’s bound to get on your nerves eventually. Making time for each other should be a priority, and a cell phone shouldn’t interfere with your night in together. After all, as a couple, you should be able to really focus on each other, right?

So, if your man has a habit of picking up his cell phone, consider using these tips and tricks to convince him to leave his phone behind for a night, based on his zodiac sign. It might take a bit of effort on your end, but enjoying one-on-one time with him – and not his phone – is worth it. Hopefully, he’ll start to realize that, too.

Using astrology, here's how to get him off his cell phone, even if it's just for a day, by his horoscope sign.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your Aries boyfriend is probably checking his phone because he’s looking for action that he’s not finding in real life. He might not even be texting. Maybe he’s streaming a YouTube video, scrolling through Facebook or beating his high score in an addictive mobile game.

Whatever he’s doing, you can offer him something better. To get this star sign to drop his phone, suggest an activity that you can do together. Make sure the activity involves a decent amount of action and competition.

For example, you could go outside to play some moonlit basketball or even try out some new moves in the bedroom. Experiment with new things, and keep things fun and interesting. If your Aries is engaged, then they are less likely to seek out entertainment on his phone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Taurus men respond well to touch and appreciate activities that use their hands. If your Taurus man is more focused on his phone than you, simply take his phone away and replace it with your hands. Holding his hand is an easy way to let your Taurus man know you mean business.

He’s a practical guy, so you could suggest making a late snack together if you haven’t eaten in a while or tell him that you just want to spend time with him. Messing with his phone might be his way of communicating his discomfort, so remember to be kind and assure him that he doesn’t need his phone to get comfortable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

If your Gemini is on his phone, it might not mean that he’s spacing out. Gemini men often use their phones to jot down book recommendations, make to-do lists as they remember things they have to finish and schedule plans with friends and family.

However, if your Gemini man rarely puts his phone down during a conversation, odds are that the conversation has started to bore him. Small talk is his least favorite pastime. He craves discussions that give him a good belly laugh or new insight on a world issue. To get your Gemini without his phone for a night, ask him interesting questions about himself and how he views the world.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Cancers are sensitive, which makes them in tune with their emotions. If your Cancer man retreats behind his phone, it could be because he feels unsafe or overwhelmed. Surrounding him with love and attention is the best way to make a Cancer man feel more protected and secure. Throwing an intimate dinner party with his close friends or relocating to your own home can encourage your Cancer partner to leave his phone.

LEO (July 23-August 22)

To get him to ditch his phone, tap into the generous spirit of your Leo man. Leo men enjoy being the heroes and helping out the people they love, so you could make it seem like leaving his phone alone for a night is the best thing he can do for you.

Praise him for being a devoted partner and for caring about the relationship enough to put his virtual life on hold. Of course, you shouldn’t overdo it, but letting him know that you love him even more for being present with you is a huge step in the right direction.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Virgos are probably one of the signs least likely to be distracted by their phones. Their patience makes them great listeners and conversationalists in relationships. Though, if he ever does favor his phone, you could mention to your Virgo man that the dishes aren’t done or the bills still need to be paid.

Your Virgo will likely put down his phone and come up with a detailed plan on how to tackle all the chores. He’ll be more than willing to help you accomplish some household tasks instead of wasting precious time on the phone. However, while Virgos like to follow the rules and finish working before playing, they can get flustered fast.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

Don’t confront your Libra man if he’s ignoring you on the phone. He hates confrontation and will hold a grudge against you if he believes you are the reason for conflict. If you want your Libra off his cell phone, suggest a friendly compromise.

For instance, you could promise him that you’ll stay off your phone for the night if he does the same. Make the situation as lighthearted as possible, and let him know that you just want his attention – not his freedom.

SCORPIO (October 23- November 21)

Your Scorpio wants honesty above all else. To get him to stop texting while you’re together, tell him. It’s that simple. Sometimes, he could be on his phone without even realizing it, so making him aware that it bothers you is the first step in correcting the issue. If your Scorpio really loves you and wants you in his life, then he will do everything in his power to fix the relationship, including give up his phone for a night.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius men want to be entertained and inspired. If your Sagittarius man tends to bury his head in his phone every night, it might be because he’s bored or experiencing some hardcore wanderlust. Invite him on a nighttime hike or biking adventure or just stay in and watch a hilarious comedy show on Netflix. Keep his optimism high and remind him that your relationship is still growing.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

Getting a Capricorn man off his phone may be a difficult task because he is incredibly stubborn. He might state that he’s a great multi-tasker and can listen to you while he’s on his phone or that he’s being productive by responding to emails or checking his finances.

Regardless, to get him to put his cell phone away, try to entice him with a family activity. A good board game, home movie night or Ikea construction project ought to get him focused and ready for quality time.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

As humanitarians, Aquarius men are progressive and appreciate learning new ways to make the world a better place. If your Aquarius man is addicted to his phone, maybe you could inform him that a new app was created that alerts you when you are spending too much time on your phone.

Or you could present him with information on how much time people tend to waste on their phones. Provide your Aquarius with various options for curing his phone addiction and reasons why spending less time on his phone may be beneficial.

PISCES (February 19-March 20)

Do you often find your Pisces man zoning out to music or Googling cool music videos on his phone? If so, he’s in good company because most Pisces have a love for music and use it to escape reality. Consider asking your partner to share his favorite songs with you over a speaker or to make up your own songs together.

Since Pisces men like to be alone, though, suggesting calming and artistic activities for them to do instead of being on their phone may be a better solution. For example, meditating, working out to a nice sound track or coloring can be great alternatives.
