Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Taurus is an endurance flirter who plays the long game.
Taurus is a bit more restrained when it comes to flirting preferring to play the long game. They’ll wait till all of the show-offs in the room have run out of steam before swooping in to make a move. They can be a little bit nervous and self-conscious in their approach but their shy style can also be cute as f*ck. They are protective and reassuring but never desperate. Instead, they hold steady until they’ve gotten so under your skin that you come to your senses. As a Taurus, you’re practical and you want to flirt in a manner that will produce results. Your flirting involves demonstrating your interest in a person and really meaning it, but you never come off as too aggressive. Your true intentions will always shine through, but whether or not they like you back is a different story.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gemini is a chaotic and unpredictable flirter who will keep you on your toes.
Geminis can be pretty indecisive, so you never know quite how to talk to your crush. One minute you’re extremely available and flirty and the next you act like you barely know them. Gemini is the sign of seamless contradictions and their flirting style is no different. Their words can be puzzling and their body language tough to decipher. One moment, they’ll look so bored and distracted that you’ll think they aren’t interested… then a moment later they’ll lunge in for a kiss so passionate that you’ll think they are obsessed. Sure, they can be slightly maddening at times but they’re so intriguing that you’ll keep coming back for more. One date is never enough!

Cancers are known for being emotional, so you probably want to know right away if your crush can handle your strong feelings. They are lovers of romance who will sweep you off your feet with compliments and attentiveness. When they flirt they have a unique ability to make you feel like you’re the only person in the whole world. When they turn on the charm they can be extremely alluring, so watch out. They’ll win you over with their kindness and then make you melt by whispering sweet nothings in your ear. One-touch and you may betray all your secrets!

It’s the deciding factor in whether or not things will work out between you.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Straightforward and haughty
Leos are extroverted and optimistic, so you’re not one to beat around the bush. Often blessed with a magnificent mane of hair and stylish attire, the Leo attracts with their presence and then backs it up with unwavering confidence and self-worth. They are both sensual and dangerously tactile with their fingers and teeth. If you like someone, you’ll pretty much tell them right off the bat. Depending on their response, you usually know whether a relationship will blossom or that it’s time for you to move on. At evenings’ end they’ll leave you desperately craving another audience with this royal sign – should you survive! You don’t get hung up because you’re confident the next person will say yes.
Perfectionists, Virgo are hard on themselves and everyone else. They are often elegant, poised, and sharply turned out. Their style of flirting can sometimes seem more like a job interview with a careful selection of criteria to be addressed. But they will soften over time and begin to flirt in more overtly whether that be by laughing at your unfunny jokes and even dishing out a well-crafted compliment. Virgos never take action without first weighing all of the consequences, so you’re very careful about letting on that you like someone. You typically consider all of the things that could go totally wrong if your crush found out, so you don’t often make a move. When you finally do, it’s at the perfect time under the perfect carefully calculated circumstances. What could go wrong then?
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Not Too Little, Not Too Much
Libras are symbolized by scales because they emphasize balance in their lives, and likewise, you always try to carefully straddle the line between too little and too much. You always make sure that you’re friendly and attentive toward your crush, but not so friendly or attentive that your infatuation with them is completely obvious. You can also be prone to overthinking things. Someday, you hope they take the hint, but it might not happen until you tip the scales a bit. A Libra can be breathy, innocent, wide-eyed, and very touchy when they are very comfortable with their crush. Though, sometimes recipients will misinterpret Libra flirting for something more substantial than a bit of innocent fun. Best just to enjoy their charm and go for something more casual before bringing up commitment.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Scorpios’ flirting style is deep, direct and downright hypnotic.
Scorpios can be rather direct when it comes to flirting and showing interest in someone. They will stare you out from across the room whilst looking eloquently disheveled. Tactile and darkly humorous they flirt with precision and the promise of illicit activities. Be assured they only weave their magic on those they are genuinely attracted to, but when they turn on their mysterious magnetic charm they can be simply intoxicating! Why? Well, that may be because you know a lot more about your crush than they know about you. Because you always listen to what they have to say about themselves and tend to be tight-lipped about yourself. This can definitely make you seem intriguing and mysterious, but it can also backfire. How can they know if they like you back if they don’t know anything about you?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Sagittarius is contagiously happy n hilarious when they flirt.
Sagittarius is adventurous and idealistic, so when a Sagittarius flirts they like to keep things fun, lighthearted, and upbeat. They will capture your attention with their dry sense of humor and ability to tell a damn good story. Should they try to ‘woo’ you there will be energetic and active in their approach – expect a whole lot of craziness and hilarity. Chances are that Sag will test their crush a bit when they flirt with them. They ask questions to find out if their crush is curious about their interests, or they will invite them to activities that’ll reveal if they’re up to the same challenge that they are. Sag won’t rule you out if you fail the test, but passing is a big plus.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Capricorns flirting style is low-keyand all about ‘less is more’.
As a Capricorn, you tend to be a little bit reserved and traditional, so you never come on too strong in your flirting. That’s because Capricorns don’t mess around with fake bravado when trying to win your affections – their flirting style is much more casual. First, they’ll charm you with both their intellect and authenticity. Then they’ll lay a compliment on you that’s so thoughtful that you’ll know they are paying attention. You Capricorns try to keep things as subtle as possible and aren’t even sure if you’d ever want your crush to have the slightest clue that you’re into them. After all, you think they should be the ones to make the first move. Understand that less can sometimes be more and that there’s no reason to rush a good thing!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Aquarius flirts by drawing you in with their wit and tantalizing your mind.
Aquarians are the types that can make love to your mind without even laying a finger on you. They are deeply aroused by intelligence and knowledge and turned off by boorishness and ignorance. They can find physical flirting to be a bit of a mystery. But they’re naturals at piquing your curiosity and tantalizing your mind until you’re left wanting more.
As a curious Aquarius, you’re always asking questions, so obviously you’ve incorporated that into your flirting style. You get to ask all the personal questions about your crush that you ever wanted to know, and they’re none the wiser because you’re like that with everyone else, too. Since you’re always interviewing people, chances are you have an idea of what your crush thinks of you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Pisces’ flirting style in awkwardly cute and reserved. Unless they start drinking!
Pisces are the most creative sign of the zodiac, so your flirting style is anything but ordinary. Maybe you like to construct things, like art projects or crafts, or demonstrate your creativity through music or dancing to catch your crush’s attention. Word of caution though: Pisces can go from being cautious and timid one moment – to shamelessly promiscuous in just one of two stiff drinks. When sober they can be rather shy when it comes to flirting. But when they’re in the middle of drunken flirtation it’s not uncommon to hear people scream “get a room!” as Pisces engages in displays of affection. Maybe you just think outside of the box to say things to your crush that would only resonate with them. Either way, you’re certainly going to get their attention.
