The need for romantic love is a basic dream. And when it comes to sparking off the spark in your romantic relationships, knowing your partner’s love language can work wonders. If you know how to know your partner’s love language, you will get an insight into what actually impresses your partner, what makes him special and what makes him even more attracted to you. In this regard, the knowledge revealed through zodiac signs for it is strong. This article shows which love language has the deepest effect on each zodiac sign for it. Astrological information like this can help build more compatible and long-lasting relationships and, in many cases, avoid unsuitable partners.
Psychologically, once the basic needs for food, water, and shelter are found, the next things people crave are love and affection. Plus, recent research from the National Center for Biotechnology Information ( NCBI ) suggests that romantic love can be potentially addicting!
“We are all naturally addicted to love … that is, we want it, seek it, and we find it hard not to think about it. We need attachment to survive, and we instinctively seek attachment, especially romantic attachment. [But] there is nothing dysfunctional about wanting love ”.
– Author Ann Smith, an American therapist who specializes in healthy relationships. Quoted by Sarah Berry (2013)
What is love language?
The term love language was developed by Dr. Gary Chapman, marriage counselor and author, in his book series The Five Love Languages. According to him, we usually express and receive love through these 5 types of languages explained below:
1. Words of affirmation
Saying and hearing words of appreciation are essential. In a romantic relationship, it is important that you hear and say the words “I love you”. On the other hand, offensive, rude language leaves a deep pain and is not easily forgotten.
2. Acts of Service
“Love is not what you said, love is what you do”. As this quote conveys, an active, helpful partner is always valued. “Can I help you?” Are magical words that make us seem more loving to our partners.
3. Make gifts
A gift makes your partner feel so special! It shows how much you care about someone, and the thoughtfulness and effort that goes into the gift leaves a lasting impression. Forgetting birthdays and anniversaries is not accepted.
4. Quality time
We feel valued when we get the undivided attention of our partners, which also includes distraction-free one-on-one conversations away from telephones and laptops.
5. Physical touch
We are all “sensitive” by nature. We love hugging, holding hands, getting pats on the back, kissing, and other expressions of physical intimacy. However, physical abuse is unforgivable.
If you include these love languages in your love life, it will surely get more exciting!
In the following, the primary love language that is suitable for each zodiac sign is explained in more detail:
1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
Preferred love languages: words of affirmation and quality of time
Aries are self-sufficient and eager; they are daredevils and born leaders. They love it when you appreciate them and make them feel important. To get their attention, they shower them with compliments, surprise them with small gifts and, most of the time, praise their achievements.
What makes them really happy is when Bae has a great time with them, filled with fun activities like a car show, an art exhibition, or a picnic in the park. The preference for praise goes both ways – just as Aries enjoy receiving it, Aries are also good listeners who appreciate the good qualities in others.
2nd Taurus (April 20th – May 21st)
Preferred love languages: physical touch and gifts
It’s no surprise that Taurus loves tons of kisses, pats, and hugs! After all, they are usually the most sensual of all zodiac signs! They care about the joys of the five senses and they long for tactile affection. They simply LOVE activities that involve physical contact with loved ones. In fact, the physical expression of love is critical to maintaining healthy relationships with the bullfighters.
Aside from their love of intimacy, they also have a materialistic streak and therefore love receiving and giving gifts. Make sure you choose something exquisite that suits their delicate taste. But there is no need to break your bank, they would much rather have you all, both mentally and physically.
3rd twin (May 22nd – June 21st)
Preferred love languages: words of affirmation and quality of time
The friendly and fun-loving twins are masters of communication and love to have fun in funny word games. Dynamic conversations are a form of foreplay for them. It is not surprising that the love language of this chatty zodiac sign is words of affirmation. Your frenzied personalities take a lot of time and mental stimuli to pique their interest. If you’re with a Gemini, make sure to pay full attention. Getting busy on your phone or Netflix while they chat with you is a big NO!
Make eye contact with them, have intelligent and engaging conversations with them, and occasionally plan adventurous activities and trips. Remember, Gemini get bored easily, and when they lose interest they inevitably start looking for new sources of excitement.
4. CANCER (June 22nd – July 22nd)
Preferred love languages: acts of service and quality of time
Cancers are sensitive, intuitive, and deeply emotional souls, and at times they can be very moody. They are prone to insecurities and fears that can be resolved by spending a lot of good time with them. They feel loved when you show them how important they are in your life. Yes, they can be affectionate at times, but they have hearts of pure gold. They are caring, have a lot of caring energy, and will love you unconditionally.
The downside of their emotional nature is that they are not always practical and can be of some help with their daily activities like household chores and other chores that are more action-oriented. So, a great way to show a Cancer that you care for them is to be the yang to their yin and help you. They are sure to love it when you cook for them and enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner together.
5th Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Preferred love languages: gifts and words of affirmation
The strengths of Leo include great leadership qualities, courage and a high level of self-confidence. They enjoy being showered with attention and praise. Therefore, the primary love language of this zodiac sign for it is the words of affirmation, which recognize their great qualities.
In return, the Lions encourage people over and over again in their lives, because they know that a great kingdom is not just about a mighty ruler, but that it needs equally capable people who do their best! Leos are also very generous and are the first to come out and help you when you are in need.
If you are in a relationship with a Leo, expect to be treated to compliments and gifts, but just know that they expect similar gestures from you too! Surprise gifts, maybe something great, or simple things like flowers and chocolates will win your hearts.
6. VIRGIN (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Preferred love languages: quality time and service actions
VIRGINS are the organizers, perfectionists, and planners of the lot. If you know or date a Virgo well, you will agree that if there is one thing Virgos don’t like, it is mess. You have planned your day and will try to pull off your level as well as possible.
Although they always have the will to get everything done, human constraints such as time and energy sometimes stand in their way. They hate it, but that’s exactly why they need someone to take care of them and volunteer to run errands for them. Little chores, like cleaning the house weekly while they are busy with another project, or shopping for groceries, can secretly melt their hearts. You may not be able to admit it, but for them a helping hand is a sign of caring and they appreciate it.
VIRGINS have an innate dream of serving others and that means they are always ready to do things for their partners and to make them feel comfortable and looked after. They are mysterious and guarded, and for this very reason you have to spend intimate time with them to know how beautiful they actually are.
7th Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Preferred love languages: giving gifts and quality of time
Librans get a sucker for beauty and romance. You love aesthetically pleasing and artistic things. It is therefore not surprising that giving and receiving gifts is the love language for which this zodiac sign is best suited. Create a luxurious experience and indulge them with things that can visually cope – this can be a full body experience for them and they will likely experience a sense of attachment to the giver.
All Librans want is a lover who gets them. If your choice matches their mood and aesthetic sense, that’s a sign that you see them for who they really are. The gifts don’t necessarily have to be something very expensive, something thoughtful to match their charisma, maybe a painting or a bouquet of flowers, is enough to melt their hearts.
Since the Libranians have a strong romantic streak, they naturally look forward to having a good time with their partner, almost every day.
8th Scorpio (October 23rd – November 22nd)
Preferred love languages: physical touch and quality of time
Scorpios are all about passion, feelings, intensity, and intimacy. The physical display of affection is one of the most important things Scorpios need from the one they love. Touch releases oxytocin. Babies need to be touched and cuddled to make them feel safe and cared for. For Scorpios, this need doesn’t go away all their lives.
Scorpios have a tough, mysterious, and seductive facade, but deep down they crave affection and intimacy. You just have to break their shell and touch their depths. All they want is for their lover to be comfortable with their needs – be it on a date or between the sheets.
Scorpios are often referred to as the sign of extremes, which is also reflected in their love life. They want every experience to be as surreal as possible. A big dinner and a memorable vacation are things to plan with your Scorpio lover.
9th Sagittarius (November 23rd – December 21st)

The second important language of love for this zodiac sign are the words of affirmation. Sagittarius are the people who always see the glass half full, and they love it when their loved ones appreciate their positive and lively personality. Sagittarians most of all value their freedom and hate being shackled, but when they love someone they make a full commitment.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)
Preferred love languages: official acts and gifts
Responsible, ambitious, goal-oriented, and pragmatic, Capricorns prefer to stay away from love and instead focus on their goals. The way to the heart of a Capricorn is to master their love languages, which are an act of service and giving. To really get along for the Capricorns, your gift needs to be something they will find useful. They value practical things that enrich their career path. That is why they admire partners who help you make their work easier, maybe give them a gift that will save them time at work. Such high quality gifts are the perfect way to take your place in their heart because every time they use it they will fondly remember the giver.
From the outside, Capricorns are reserved, quiet, and serious people, but that doesn’t mean they are emotionless. It’s just that they approach their feelings with a practical mindset.
