How Women Of The Zodiac Fall In Love, According To Astrology

Whether they show it or not, all women love romance. They want to be cherished, wooed, and comforted through the ups and downs of life.

But since loves looks different to everyone, knowing exactly how to make a woman fall in love is a maze that few can navigate their way through.

While there’s no handbook for falling in love (trust us, if we had one we’d share it!), understanding astrology can help with removing some of the mystery of love.

Knowing how you or the lady in your life falls in love is one sure way to recognize it as it happens, and make sure your relationship is moving in the right direction. 

Here's how the women of the zodiac fall in love.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries loves to be in the driver’s seat of her relationship. She’s impulsive and spontaneous, and isn’t afraid to move quickly.

When she sets her sights on someone, she will do everything in her power to make things work. She loves both giving and receiving grandiose romantic gestures, and puts all her attention into the object of her romantic desires.

She might appear controlling or overbearing at times, but Aries actually loves when her partner can speak up for themselves and give their opinions. She's a powerful force in encouraging others to express their inner thoughts.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

The honesty and trustworthiness of the Taurus woman is incomparable. She never plays mind games with her partners and will love harder than most.

Out of all of the Earth signs, Taurus craves love the most. That said, she won’t fall fast. Taurus needs to know that you’re willing to put in work and go the long haul. Early in the relationship, she’ll take notes about how much effort you’re putting in, and won’t open up unless she sees you’re committed.

Venus-ruled Taurus needs to be wooed with romance, but held onto securely even after the honeymoon phase ends.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Social butterfly Gemini treats finding love like reading a menu. She needs to carefully review all her options before she picks the person to devour.

As an Air sign, it takes a lot for Gemini to fixate on one relationship. She's moved by her mind so she needs to always be stimulated in order to fall in love. If she’s interested, she’ll probe you with intellectual conversations and deep questions to consolidate your bond.

She loves to have fun, so keep her agenda full of exciting dates if you want her to stick around. She won’t move your relationship forward fast, but if you keep her interested she’ll surprise herself when she realizes she’s stuck around this long for a reason.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Falling in love with Cancer reveals an explosion of emotions you didn’t even know you could feel.

Since she’s full of powerful feelings, Cancer will connect you with your sensitive side as you get to know her more. She’s shy at first, but her nurturing nature means she has a lot of love to give.

If you can prove to her that you understand her, she’ll feel more confident to open up. Once she gets emotionally attached, Cancer will stick around for a long time and love you so purely, you’ll want to keep her around.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Falling in love with a Leo is like going on a new adventure every day.

She’s passionate and flamboyant, and loves to showcase her affections. She’s able to make decisions quickly so she tends to fall in love fast with a deep confidence in her intuition.

Ruled by the Sun, Leo thrives on attention and will easily fall for someone who can shower her with compliments and affection. She wants to find someone who can share her passion for life and join in on her adventures.

Though she falls fast, her love is pure. Her radiant energy and fierce loyalty make her an ideal partner.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo isn’t in a big hurry to fall in love. Careful and methodic, she needs to be assured that your relationship will serve her aspirations and fit in with her lifestyle.

If you want to win her heart, you need to move slowly and let things unfold naturally. If she feels she has been pushed into a relationship, she will push right back. She’s a perfectionist and wants the perfect fairytale romance so she can be confident in your commitment and faithfulness.

When she does fall in love, Virgo is quietly caring and will mimic your traits in order to maintain a strong bond with you.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Falling in love with a Libra woman will be nothing short of a pleasure. The emotional connections that she's able to create with her partners are deeply intense and stimulating, making for a long-lasting bond.

Ruled by Venus, she craves love and the pursuit of it. She loves to be in a relationship of equals and favors a harmonious connection with her lovers. She’ll move quickly, but will always put in the effort, expecting the same in return.

With Libra, be prepared to put in work, but you can be confident that she’ll love as good as she gets.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Dating a Scorpio isn't for the faint-hearted. When she’s falling in love, her passion is intense and unforgettable.

As a Water sign, she's deep and sensual. She will pull you in but will never reveal her true self until she can trust you completely. This means, while her intensity can insinuate that she wants to move fast, love with a Scorpio is best enjoyed at a slow pace.

She can be suspicious in love, but once you prove your motives are pure, she will trust you with an intense loyalty and an unwavering love.

Sagittarius has a lot of love to give, but knows that any relationship is worth waiting for.

She won’t give up her independence for just anyone. She needs someone who comes at the right time and is willing to grow with her. She only falls in love when her partner proves they are up for an adventure.

When she does fall in love, she has the power to bring the best out of her partner and help them to grow as a person.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is another zodiac sign who loves to take things slow. She’s a hard-worker and will take her time crafting the perfect relationship.

Thriving on ambition and success, Capricorn often falls for people who have their lives together and have already achieved many of their goals. She needs her partner to prove that they are worth pursuing.

She wants someone who can push themselves, but she will support you every step of the way. Capricorn women tend to find themselves in power couples where both they and their partners are optimizing their success.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is a lover of all things, not just people. So it can be hard to figure out if her intentions are romantic.

As an Air sign, she's hard to tie down and loves to float between different social groups. Love with an Aquarius is best when it starts as a friendship and slowly blossoms into something more.

She's passionate about creativity and caring for the world around her, and loves a partner who shares these passions. She's a natural optimist and will always have your best intentions at heart, so don’t rush her — she’s worth the wait.

If anyone can fall in love at first sight, it’s Pisces.

Since she's ruled by the planet of dreams, Neptune, she has big things in mind for her relationships and will inspire her partners beyond their wildest imaginations. A deeply emotional sign, Pisces wants you to wear your heart on your sleeve around her and showcase how you really feel.

Make sure your intentions are pure when dating a Pisces; if you cross her, her heart will shatter into millions of pieces.
