Ever wonder why you’re more drawn to one zodiac sign than another? Or wonder just what it is that makes people attracted to you? Astrology explains the seductive qualities of each man of the zodiac!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The Aries guy is fresh and youthful, no matter his age. Ruled by action-oriented Mars, the Ram’s passion for life is legendary. But like Aries Russell Crowe or Robert Downey, Jr., he often tends to live on the edge. This can be exciting but dangerous. Not known for his discretion or fidelity in youth, it’s later in life that the Ram learns to bank his fire and settle down a bit more.
Wiry and fit, the Aries man’s physique will grab your attention before he’s even had a chance to wow you with his devilish charm. Aries comes right out and tells you what he thinks, which can be disarming. If he finds you hot, you’ll know it. He wants someone who can keep up with him — athletically as well as sexually! The Ram is always up for a spontaneous trip to the mountains or a competitive game of tennis. The thrill of speed turns him on, and so does the color red. If you happen to drive a sporty red car, you may just be the lover of his dreams.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
There’s an earthy charm and confidence about the Bull that makes him sexy. Even if he’s not classically handsome, his sweet ways get him just about anything or anyone he wants. Fun and flirtatious, when it comes to commitment he moves slowly, like his other animal, the Tortoise. As with Taurus Jack Nicholson, he’s apt to stay single until someone really special comes along. But if he knows you’re “the one,” he’ll take his time and wait ’til you come around.
Taurus is good with his hands and very sensual — trading massages really turns him on. He’s also tuned in to his body — and yours! — which makes him a sensitive lover. Unflappable and serene (unless pushed too far), he’ll make you feel safe. He can get stuck in ruts, however. Often broad-chested and a bit fleshy, his warmth is comforting on chilly nights. Ruled by artistic Venus, he’s both creative and practical. He’ll build you a cabinet or plan your portfolio, and feel manly doing so. To thank him in a way he’ll really appreciate, savor a deluxe hot fudge sundae together — in bed.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
With that twinkle in his eye and that wiggle of his cute butt, the Gemini man is a real delight. You’ll be dazzled by his quick repartee and sexy comebacks — nobody can speak the language of seduction better than the Twins (Remember sexy Gemini Johnny Depp in that delirious romance Don Juan de Marco?). There’s often an androgynous quality about this guy — his Twin aspect shows he’s got a strong feminine as well as masculine side. And that means he understands the way both sexes think, which melts your defenses.
Though he can be fickle or two-faced, this guy will stick around for a partner who stimulates his mind. Ruled by mental Mercury, he’s turned on by lively debates about media and culture. Travel stirs his blood, as well. Plan a spontaneous trip and keep him guessing about the destination to really fire him up. If you’ve got one of those rare Geminis who’s more agile with his hands than his tongue, rendezvous with him after he’s just tuned up his car or painted his porch, and his juices are really flowing!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The Cancer guy is a big sweetheart who’ll win you over with his sexy smile and unassuming manner. He loves his mom (he may be a bit of a mama’s boy) and will do just about anything for those he loves. Think of Harrison Ford in all those films where he rescues his family from certain doom, and you’ve got the essence of the Crab’s appeal. Whether he’s protecting you or relaxing in your warm embrace, he’s a family man through and through. And he’s definitely in it for the long haul, looking for a great parent for his kids.
Moody and changeable, the Cancer man is ruled by the Moon and tends to wear his heart on his sleeve. His sensitivity and vulnerability will go straight to your heart, though some may find him clingy. You’ll be tempted to baby him, but he’ll be more attracted to you if you prove you can make your own way in the world. Maintain a life of your own, but also keep the home fires burning. And remember: the way to this man’s heart is definitely through his stomach.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
The Leo guy is a natural showman and has a sexy, devil-may-care wit. Like the Sun, his ruling planet, he radiates manly confidence (despite his insecurities) and won’t back down from a fight. In essence, he’s a hero — like Leo Antonio Banderas in The Mask of Zorro — and his strength is his most appealing quality. Even the quieter Leo has a thrilling sense of masculinity about.
The Lion has the biggest heart of the zodiac, and shares it freely once he realizes (sometimes later in life) that the world doesn’t revolve around him. He’ll cook you a gourmet meal or take you shopping for a new stereo system. He likes the finer things in life, and wants an elegant (but fun!) partner on his arm. A little bit of praise turns him on; stroking the Lion’s ego will really make him purr. As long as you don’t upstage him or challenge him too forcefully and trigger his temper, this guy will be eating out of your hand. Letting him know how special he is on a regular basis will also tame the Lion.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
The Virgo guy is intelligent and thoughtful. He’ll remember your birthday and your favorite scents. Ruled by lightning-quick Mercury, his mind is always going a mile a minute, and he tends to be overly analytical and sometimes critical. Yet just when his fussiness is about to drive you crazy, he’ll give you that sexy, sheepish grin (like Virgo Hugh Grant) and melt your heart. Actually, his intelligence is his sexiest quality: he sees straight into you like a laser — and lets you know how much he cares.
Though he can be overly mental, this is also an earthy guy. You can help him bring out his earthiness by doing yoga or planting a garden together. His desire to serve is another sexy attribute — let him fix your computer or make you fresh carrot juice, and watch him beam with pleasure. Another plus in the turn-on department is Virgo’s health-consciousness — he usually has a fit, toned body. He’s also a sensitive lover, once he gets past any performance anxiety. Exploring Tantric practices, with an emphasis on breathing, will help him relax.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
The Libra man understands and adores his lovers, which is his most attractive quality. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, he knows how to treat you (probably because he paid attention when his mother taught him manners). Candlelight dinners appeal to this guy, as do romantic walks on the beach. But he’s also the thinking person’s turn-on. His agile mind and charming way with words can keep you up half the night, as he takes pleasure in talking about anything and everything. Libra is always up for a discussion about relationships or culture, and is a champion of fidelity and civil rights. Some may find him overly intellectual, though.
Artistic and creative, Libra has a real flair for style and his home is usually beautiful. His sweetness is irresistible, and you can lose yourself in those clear, all-seeing eyes. Luckily for you, Libra is a one-partner man. He’s also quite social, and loves to cultivate mutual friendships. His delightful wit comes out at parties, but he will share the spotlight with the woman he loves. Chivalrous to a fault (remember Libra Hugh Jackman in Kate and Leopold?), this guy is a true gentleman.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
There’s a quiet intensity to the Scorpio guy that’ll reel you in. One look in those smoldering eyes (like those of Scorpio Joaquin Phoenix), and you’re a goner. Even sexier is his sultry voice. This guy can literally mesmerize you. That’s why Scorpios make great magicians and hypnotists. The Scorpion’s sexual magnetism comes from someplace deep inside him, and its power is almost palpable. He’s definitely not a match for those who want to stay on the surface of things.
Because he’s ruled by Pluto, lord of the underworld, this man knows how to keep secrets — and may frustrate you with his reluctance to share his deepest feelings. But he’s definitely not superficial, as you’ll discover behind closed doors. If you fear the experience of being utterly consumed, then stay away from the Scorpion. At times possessive and jealous, he thrives on going all the way (and then some) sexually. But if you can match him, he’ll bond with you for life. Getting away on a quiet retreat for “just the two of you” will fan the flames of his ardor.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
This guy has the call of the wild in his soul, and that far-off look in his eye is part of his attraction. Think of Sagittarian Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall or Seven Years in Tibet, and you’ll understand the Archer’s outdoorsy appeal. “Don’t fence me in” is his motto. Like his animal, the horse, he responds well to gentle caresses and soothing words. Yet some may find him too hard to pin down.
The Archer is well read and well traveled, and he’s a born teacher, too. He’s also strong and appealingly muscular. Ruled by optimistic Jupiter, he tends to look on the bright side of things, and can pull you out of a funk in no time flat. His natural wit and storytelling abilities are thrilling. He’s not what you’d call predictable, but this can make him irresistible. If you share his adventures but are also independent enough to let him be free, this man will adore you. Let him go off on his cross-country motorcycle rides or fishing expeditions, and he’ll be more than happy to come home to you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
The Goat has it together, or at least projects the image of being in control. Ruled by ambitious Saturn, he’s a master of the material world. He also possesses the seductive attractiveness that goes with that kind of worldly power. Like the mountain goat, he always aims for the top. Think of indomitable (and ultra sexy) Capricorn Denzel Washington in all those roles where he triumphs over unimaginable challenges. You can’t keep this guy down for long.
A natural father figure, the Goat will protect you — which, along with his warmth and sheer physicality, make you feel secure. He is a solid, reliable presence once he commits. He gets better with age, too (think of Capricorn Anthony Hopkins, still sexy at nearly seventy). The Goat may not be as attuned to feelings as you’d like, but he makes a good mate if you can forgive him his occasional insensitivity and long hours at work. Though he appreciates a good parent for his kids, he’s also looking to you to spice up his life.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Here’s a guy who doesn’t fit the mold. A true free spirit, his appeal comes from his courage to follow his own drummer. Usually ahead of his time, this guy’s quirkiness is part of his genius. Ruled by inventive Uranus, he’ll dazzle you with his utopian ideas and turn you on to worlds you never knew existed. Experimental and even kinky at times, he’ll keep you guessing and take you to the edge, sexually. Emotionally, he tends to be reticent and doesn’t like to talk about feelings. Accept him as he is, and he’ll love you for it.
Freedom-loving Aquarius makes a great friend, though he tends to be gun-shy of commitments. But if you can give him a long leash, he’ll stick by your side. Like Aquarian John Travolta flying his jet or Paul Newman racing his cars, this guy loves the sound of the wind in his ears. Be like Joanne Woodward, who brings her knitting to the track to quietly support her man. Sharing an interest in metaphysics or volunteering for humanitarian pursuits can give you a higher purpose that will keep you together.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Sensitive and caring, Pisces fills you with tingly feelings as he swims straight into your heart. And when he fixes that dreamy gaze on you, it’s hard not to turn to jelly. Pisces loves to touch and be touched — and often communicates best non-verbally. You’ll be transported to other dimensions just holding each other. Sex and spirit are one in the same to this guy, which makes your lovemaking ecstatic.
There’s something appealingly wounded about Pisces that makes you want to rescue him and take him home. Sometimes accused of not being “manly” enough, this guy may overcompensate (like Pisces Bruce Willis in all those action flicks) to prove he’s not a wuss. Ruled by imaginative Neptune, he’s often a talented musician, artist or dancer. Despite his strong physique, his spiritual nature makes him seem otherworldly. As long as he’s not trying to avoid reality through addiction or escapism, he makes a stalwart and attentive mate. Go swimming with him at the cove or take a dance class together. This guy doesn’t like to be alone, and will respond to your desire to bond.
