Flaunt what your mama gave you.

Swipe right. Modern flirtation gets right to the point. Swipe left means, "Nah, me no likey." Well, that's not exactly a flirting technique, but it most certainly is what many people are doing when they go on flirty dating apps like Tinder or Bumble.

Flirting is an art to some and a necessary evil to others. Some learn how to flirt to start up sexual interest, and some flirt to get people to like them. Flirting isn't always sexual, but not everyone would agree with that. The truth is, being flirty is an individual thing and some can't help it.

Depending on what we value in ourselves, that's usually what we utilize in our flirty efforts. Depending on our zodiac signs, some people believe their bodies are all they have to offer, so flirtation is a physical thing. Others might not have the same kind of confidence, and may rely upon intellectual prowess to get the job done.

Each sign in astrology has its own way of flirting. And while these time-tested techniques may vary in effectiveness, they are still unique approaches. If flirting is an art, then some folks are natural born mathematicians.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Heavy eye contact and intimidation usually do the trick for Aries. Stare 'em into wanting you — that's the Aries way.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

It's best for Geminis to keep it short and discreet when it comes to flirting so they don't accidentally say something so insulting and raw that their person of desire doesn't run away in tears.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Lots of batting of the eyelashes and flashes of body parts happen when you're flirting with Cancer. They love to tease, and they love to please even more. And they'll let you know that in advance.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Running on reputation, Leo just assumes you want them sexually, so flirtation comes quite easily. Leo is so arrogant and self-confident that after you stop gawking at them, you may come to think they're sexy for it.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

It's all physical with Virgo. They love playing coy and unknowing. Say, for instance, Virgo's underpants suddenly fall to the floor. They will simply smile innocently, letting you figure out what to do next.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

They like to test you for stamina. If you can laugh at their jokes, pick up on their subtleties and generally "get them," then you're good enough to flirt with, which means you'll soon be working for them in an unpaid position.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Be prepared to play the Long Game here as Sagittarius rarely flirts quickly. Their "technique" is to gift you — they will make you crafts, cookies, artwork. So much so that you'll be completely intimidated by them that you'll walk away wondering why anyone would want to be so giving.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn figures you want them for their good looks, their money and their mental acumen, so, in turn, they'll flirt like it's an SAT exam. If you want them, you have to fill out a form. Get it right and you may just get lucky.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You don't know what's happening when Aquarius flirts with you, because they don't know how to flirt. They are awkward and daft, and flirting to them looks like climbing on top of your lap to make out with you... at your mom's funeral.
