Your Love Language, According to Your Zodiac Sign
Finally, a good reason to bring back the pick-up line, “Hey baby, what’s your sign?” (Well, maybe not a “good” reason - don’t quote me if you try this line and it doesn’t work!)
Most people know their zodiac sign, but do you know your zodiac sign’s love language?
Zodiac compatibility is an ancient and complex art, one that can take years to master - but, if you know which love language each zodiac sign is most likely to speak, you’ll be able to understand and get along with your loved ones and romantic partners in a whole new way. Plus, understanding your own zodiac sign and love languages are big steps towards knowing what you need in your relationships, which can often be tough to identify.
Your Zodiac’s Love Language
Below, I’ve listed the top 2 love languages each zodiac sign is most likely to have. (If you’re familiar with your birth chart, it’s a good idea to check your Sun, Moon, Rising, and Venus signs, and cross-reference the love languages for each to find the patterns.)
It’s also a good idea to compare your sign’s love languages with your partner’s and/or loved ones’ to find out where your love styles overlap, and where they diverge or clash.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Oh Aries, you might be the baby of the zodiac, but nobody puts you in a corner. You’re most likely to speak Physical Touch or Quality Time as your primary love language.
Touch is often something spontaneous, but that’s exactly why you love it so much – spontaneity is one of your strong-suits. You also feel your bond deepening further when you get to share experiences and time with your nearest and dearest, regardless of what exactly you’re doing.
You’re famous for your roar, Leo; you’ll shout your love from mountaintops with your head held high.
You’re proud to love who you love, and you want everyone to know it. That’s why hearing Words of Affirmation from your loved ones hits so close to home for you. At the same time, you know more than most that those words need action to mean anything at all, making Acts of Service an important love language for you as well.
You’re an independent spirit, Archer, but you know it’s real love when you find yourself wanting to spend more and more Quality Time with someone.
You do, however, need your freedom to thrive and can’t tolerate total codependency, so your fluency in the Words of Affirmation love language comes in handy here. You have a certain way with words that helps you connect with others, and the only thing you love more than giving compliments is receiving them!
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Ruled by Venus, the planet of pleasure and indulgence, your love languages are all about engaging the senses - your own, or your loved ones!
For you, Taurus, the Physical Touch love language is not only practical (one touch can communicate hundred of words!) but deeply personal and meaningful at the same time. As well, your Venusian love of luxury gives you a knack for getting every gift exactly right. You know how much thought and work goes into giving gifts, so the Receiving Gifts love language is a significant one for you.
An organized, functional romance is the best romance in your eyes, Virgo. Your greatest relationships are ones where clear, honest, and open communication is prioritized, so the Words of Affirmation love language resonates heavily with you.
But you’ve got that earth sign practicality that necessitates action to back up those words, making Acts of Service an equally if not more important love language for you.
Cap, you’ve always been the one to call in a crisis. Level-headed and loyal, you have an inner strength that brings out the best in others and they love you for it.
You place a high value on hustle and hard work, so you translate a ton of love from others’ Acts of Service for you. You place a similarly high value on your time as well thanks to your Saturnian ruler, so who you choose to spend Quality Time with is very important to you.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Blessed with a natural gift of gab thanks to your ruler, Mercury, you connect through communication, Gemini. Whether it’s vivacious, witty banter or soft, sweet whispers, you love to play with Words of Affirmation, especially with someone who can keep up with your quick mind.
In the same vein, you also need someone who can keep up with (and be patient with) your crazy-packed schedule; it might be tough for you to find time for Quality Time, but no matter what, every second counts.
As the zodiac’s sign of balance, Libra, you’re a master of the give-and-take. You have an intuitive way of using your words to bring any situation into harmony, so Words of Affirmation are like music to your hears.
You also particularly enjoy life’s fineries thanks to the influence of your ruler, luxe Venus. Your sharp eye for detail and unique appreciation for craft and quality makes you particularly adept at giving and Receiving Gifts.
As the rebel of the zodiac, Aquarius, you tend to place more stock in Acts of Service over words or grand romantic gestures. Your planetary ruler, Uranus, is the change-maker of our solar system, so you know better than most that intentional action is what makes anything happen.
Since you can get carried away in the clouds with those big ideas of yours, though, the love language of Physical Touch keeps you happily grounded and connected with the here and now.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
You’ve got a hard shell, Cancer, but your insides are as sweet and squishy as they come. You won’t let just anyone into your inner circle, but one of the quickest and surest ways to your heart is by prioritizing Quality Time to properly care for your loved ones (and be cared for in return).
When time is short, however, warm and fuzzy Words of Affirmation (of which you yourself have no shortage) are just as meaningful to you and can instantly collapse any distance between you and your loved ones.
While you may be quite avoidant of touch in your day-to-day life, Scorpio, it’s only because you’re so sensitive to it. The love language of Physical Touch speaks volumes to you because you can use it to connect on a deeper, visceral level with your loved ones.
That said, only those you trust get the privilege of being close enough to you to touch, and earning that trust is often heavily bolstered by Acts of Service that prove your loved one’s loyalty and intention.
As the zodiac’s escapist daydreamer, Pisces, you can get lost in any moment - but your favorite moments to lose yourself in are the ones lost in love. Your go-with-the-flow approach to life compels you to prioritize Quality Time together, and you want the same from your partner in return.
Just as the moon pulls on the ocean tides, you feel a visceral, almost physical pull towards your loved ones, making Physical Touch a powerful manifestation of love for you.
Whether or not these love languages match up with you and your sign, remember that there is no such thing as truly “incompatible” zodiac signs; you can make a relationship work with anyone as long as you both take the time to understand each other.
There’s no guarantee that two people with the same zodiac sign will be anything alike. The same applies to love languages too; the way you use one love language might look very different from someone else’s use of that same language. That’s because everyone speaks their own unique dialect of the love languages, just as everyone embodies the traits of their zodiac sign a little bit differently.
With enough practice, you can be fluent in all 5 love languages, regardless of your zodiac sign. (But maybe leave the pick-up lines at home.)
