Whether you’re a sceptic or a believer, it’s nevertheless super fun to read your horoscope each week and see what the ~stars~ have in store for you.
From finances to fashion to romance, your astrological sign can tell you a lot about yourself. If you’re open to self-improvement, being aware of how the planetary movements can impact you isn’t such a bad idea.
One major way the stars can help? By telling you the best dates for your zodiac sign, so you’re guaranteed to have a good time.
Though your interests aren’t necessarily dependent on what time of year you were born, it can’t hurt to explore more exciting first date options than the boring, overdone dinner-and-drinks thing.
You don’t have to go too far outside of your comfort zone, but it’s always good to be open-minded — you never know what you might enjoy in the company of someone else (especially if that someone is super hot).µ

“Tailoring a date to your Sun sign makes sense because it complements your best self, and that’s the self you ALWAYS want to bring to a date,” Woods tells Bustle. If you’re out of creative ideas and have a date coming up, read on to find out what kind of date you should plan according to your sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Woods describes Aries as “active, sporty, physical, [and] competitive,” so on your next date, try an outdoor activity that will get you and your partner moving.
If you want a more chill atmosphere, find a park to hike through and pack a picnic.
If you’re feeling extra feisty, play a game of pickup basketball or frisbee to get the competitive juices flowing. Trash talk can be surprisingly hot.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taureans (like yours truly) like to live a bit of a luxe life: Things like fine dining and shopping greatly appeal to the bulls of the zodiac.
Though fun, cheap dates are always good (because most people have this thing called a budget), a Taurus will be most satisfied if they feel pampered on a date.
Luckily, it’s possible to simulate the feel of a fancy date at home without spending so much cash: dress up a bit, make chocolate covered strawberries, and prepare an at-home imitation of surf-and-turf.
If you have enough wine, even the cheapest meal can taste fancy.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
If you want to win the heart of a Gemini, tap into their desire to experience and discuss pop culture.
Going to see a new film or browsing a bookshop and arguing about the classics is a great way to connect with a Gemini.

If you’re feeling a little more low-brow, a Gemini will also appreciate a trip to the arcade (or better yet, an arcade bar) for some friendly gaming and a bit of nostalgia.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
To bond with a Cancer, all you need to do is cook a nice meal together.
It doesn’t have to be filet mignon — just the act of doing something as intimate as cooking a meal together will bring out the best in a Cancer. Another solid option for Cancers?
Going to a wine tasting, where the two of you can have fun trying different kinds of Cabernet and getting tipsy in style.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos tend to be the party animals of the zodiac, so it’s best to plan a date that’s upbeat and lively.
Anything involving music or dancing is perfect for a Leo — even going to a party together will do.
Take it easy on the tequila, maybe, but otherwise don’t be afraid to let loose and get out of your shell.
