You can meet your soulmate anywhere. But finding the love of your life in a place where you feel less than comfortable is probably less likely. If you aren’t sure where to go, however, don’t forget that zodiac signs and romance are inextricably linked. And knowing a bit more about your sign might bring you a step closer to love.
It may seem like absolutely everyone is meeting their loves online these days. And if you’ve found your soulmate through an app, more power to you.
But according to a survey from Piper Jaffray, only 27 percent of millennial respondents said they used Tinder, and only 12 percent used the runner-up, Bumble. So there are definitely still people out there meeting their future partners in real life.
The fact that it happens doesn’t make it any less overwhelming, however. If you’re confounded where to look, you might want to think more about your personality, and what kinds of places and people draw you in.
To gain insight into this, it might be a good step to turn to astrology. Your zodiac sign can either serve as a guide for where to start looking, or provide some wisdom about where you might just stumble upon love.
Here’s the best place to meet your soulmate, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): A Sporting Event
Aries’ feisty nature applies just as much to the quest for love as it does other aspects of life.
And sporting events are the perfect place to tap into this, perhaps getting to know someone over friendly banter.
“Competitive Aries can meet their soulmate at a sporting event — and their new flame could be quite possibly cheering for the opposing team as Aries, igniting their fiery and sparky nature, causing the ram to fall head over heels for their new flame,” astrologist Lisa Stardust tells Bustle. So go check out a game with friends, and let the universe guide the rest!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): An Outdoor Event
If you’re a Taurus, you may already know how tapped into nature you are, or how good it feels to get outside. Meeting your soulmate, then, should happen in your happy place: the outdoors.
“You may find your soulmate at an outdoor event (ie. a park, on a trail, or an outdoor concert),” astrologer Kesaine Walker tells Bustle.
“As a Taurus sun, you thrive in nature where all your senses are activated and you’re able to enjoy the simple things in life.” So whatever version of nature feels like home to you might just become extra-special: the place where you met your soulmate.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): While Traveling
If you’re a busy Gemini, it may seem daunting to imagine going out of your way in an attempt to find the perfect person. Luckily for you, the stars suggest your soulmate might appear along the way as you buzz about.
“Multi-tasking Gemini will find their love while traveling,” Stardust says. “It’s quite possible the chatty air sign will meet their new love while commuting and unwittingly sit next to their soulmate on the metro, airplane, or bus, crafting a conversation that will last for hours and for years to come.”
So keep your eyes and ears open, the person you’re meant for may just be your seat-mate.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): At The Movies
If you’re a Cancer who’s been known to get sentimental over an old classic you found on Netflix, then taking that little personality quirk out into the world might just become the path to finding the love of your life.
“Sentimental and sensitive Cancer is likely to find their soulmate sitting in the same row at an afternoon showing of an old romantic movie,” Stardust says.
“The crab will know this stranger is the one, when they both sob at the same moments, awakening the crabs feelings, memories, and need for security.” So head to the local art cinema, and see what happens.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): At An Industry Event
Networking as a concept can spark fear in the eyes of some, but usually not in Leo’s. So tap into that love of schmoozing, and see where else it takes you (as long as you aren’t overstepping any professional boundaries).
“Leo’s love to be center stage and the life of the party so you’ll most likely meet your soulmate at an industry event,” Walker says.
“This is where you’ll be able to get dressed up and walk in a room dripping with confidence while bragging about all your recent accomplishments.” So put on your favorite outfit, grab a glass of wine, and try starting a conversation with the most intriguing person in the room.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): At The Library
Virgos, it’s time to get a library card. Your inquisitive brain might just meet its match somewhere sorting through the Dewey Decimal System.
“Analytical Virgo can find their soulmate at the library,” Stardust says. ‘Their ideal match would be researching similar interests, allowing the smart earth sign to feel as though they have met their equally intelligent soulmate.”
So go check out your local library, then see what happens next.
