Which zodiacs are the biggest romantics? Ranked!

Ever tried to woo a Capricorn with a bouquet of roses, only to have them critique your choice of flowers?

Fear not, dear reader!

Love and romance are tricky territories, made even more complex by our astrological signs.

So, buckle up as we delve into the celestial world of love, ranking our zodiac signs from the hopeless romantics to the practical lovers.

Let the love games begin!

1) Pisces

Topping the list, we have Pisces.

Ruled by Neptune, the planet of dreams and intuition, Pisces are truly the hopeless romantics of the zodiac.

They’re all about deep connections, heartfelt emotions, and selfless love.

A Pisces in love is like a poet at heart — they see the beauty in everything and express their love with a sense of mystique and gentleness that could charm even the coldest hearts.

They won’t just bring you flowers, they’ll write you a song that makes the roses blush!

2) Taurus

Next in line, we have the sensual Taurus.

Ruled by the romantic Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Taureans appreciate the finer things in life, and when it comes to romance, they certainly know how to make their partners feel special.

Expect the full works — candlelit dinners, surprise gifts, and heartfelt messages.

They aren’t called the pleasure seekers of the zodiac for nothing! 

A lovesick Taurus is like a gourmet chef, carefully selecting ingredients and taking the time to create an exquisite experience of love.

3) Libra

Coming in at number three are the charming Libras.

Also ruled by Venus, Libras are all about harmony and balance.

They love being in love and aren’t afraid to show it. Whether it’s planning romantic dates or writing love letters, Libras know how to keep the spark alive.

A smitten Libra is like a skilled dancer, gracefully balancing the act of giving and receiving, making their partner feel loved and appreciated in the most balanced way possible.

4) Cancer

At fourth place, we find the nurturing Cancer. They are ruled by the Moon, which represents emotions and instincts.

Cancers are naturally caring and protective. When in love, they express their feelings through acts of kindness and comfort.

They’re the ones who will make you soup when you’re sick, listen to you after a hard day, and create a cozy haven for you both to retreat into.

Cancer’s brand of romance is like a warm, comforting blanket on a cold winter’s night, providing an aura of warmth and love that is hard to resist.

5) Scorpio

Fifth in the list, we have Scorpio.

Pluto, the planet of transformation, rules this sign. That’s why Scorpios are passionate and intense.

When they’re in love, they dive deep into the ocean of emotions, expressing their feelings with an alluring mix of mystery and intensity.

Scorpios are the ones who will surprise you with a spontaneous weekend getaway or a midnight star-gazing date.

Wooing a Scorpio is like a captivating mystery novel, keeping you intrigued and fascinated, page after page.

6) Leo

Following Scorpio, we have Leo. 

This Sun-ruled sign represents ego and self-expression. This makes Leos warm, generous, and love being the center of attention.

They’re not shy about expressing their feelings and will go out of their way to make their partner feel special. 

Expect grand gestures, lavish gifts, and plenty of compliments.

A lovestruck Leo is like a shining star, bright, warm, and impossible to ignore.

7) Gemini

Up next is Gemini. Mercury, the planet of communication, rules this communicative sign.

Geminis are playful, intellectually curious, and love a good conversation.

In love, they express their feelings through engaging chats and thoughtful gestures.

A Gemini won’t just tell you they love you, they’ll show it through thoughtful actions and sweet messages.

Court a Gemini and it will be like an enchanting storybook, always full of exciting new chapters.

8) Virgo

Moving forward, we have Virgo—ruled by Mercury (like Gemini).

Virgos are analytical and practical. They might not be the most flamboyant romantics, but their love is expressed in their devotion and acts of service. 

They’re the ones who will help you with your chores, support you in your goals, and offer practical advice.

A pining Virgo is like a beautifully crafted watch, reliable, precise, and showing their love in subtle, yet constant ways.

9) Sagittarius

Next, we have Sagittarius, under the rule of Jupiter—the planet of growth and expansion, 

Sagittarians are adventurous and freedom-loving.

Their romantic gestures might not be conventional, but they are certainly exciting.

Expect adventurous dates, spontaneous road trips, and meaningful conversations about life and dreams.

A Sagittarius in the center of love is like an exhilarating adventure movie, always keeping you on the edge of your seat with their spontaneous and enthusiastic expressions of love.

10) Aquarius

Next up is Aquarius. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of innovation and rebellion, Aquarians are unique and unconventional.

They express their love in original, if not eccentric ways, often through intellectual engagement and shared interests.

While they might not shower you with traditional romantic gestures, an Aquarius in love will connect with you on a deep intellectual level, creating a bond that is both profound and unique.

11) Aries

Penultimate on our list is Aries. Under Mars’ rule, the planet of action and desire, Aries are passionate and enthusiastic.

When they fall in love, they express it through action and straightforwardness.

Expect energetic dates, passionate discussions, and plenty of physical affection.

A giddy Aries is like a thrilling action film, packed with adrenaline and excitement.

12) Capricorn

Last, and perhaps least ‘romantic’ according to traditional definitions, we have Capricorn.

Ruled by Saturn, the planet of discipline and responsibility, Capricorns are practical and reserved.

They may not express their love through grand gestures or emotional declarations, but through commitment, loyalty, and reliability.

A Capricorn in love is like a classic novel, solid, dependable, and providing a love that stands the test of time.

Astrological elements governing love and romance

Astrologically, love and romance are influenced by a trifecta of factors: ruling planets, modalities, and houses in your natal chart.


Venus and Mars are key players.

Venus governs love and aesthetic appreciation, influencing who and what we value in relationships.

Meanwhile, Mars rules our desire and approach to asserting ourselves, marking our passion and drive.


Modalities shape our love styles too.

Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) initiate and take direct action in love.

Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) form lasting bonds with steadfast loyalty.

Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) demonstrate a flexible and versatile love expression.


Lastly, the 5th and 7th houses in the natal chart shed light on our love language.

The 5th house reveals how we express love and what romantic experiences we seek.

On the other hand, the 7th house uncovers our long-term partnership desires.

In essence, these astrological elements offer a complex lens to view our romantic tendencies. 

Whether you’re a starry-eyed Pisces or a grounded Capricorn, remember to embrace your unique love style—it’s written in the stars, after all!
