If you’re reading this, chances are you are waiting for your boyfriend to pop the question. You probably have about 25 different types of engagement rings on your Pinterest board and double the amount of that in wedding dresses and venues. You are as ready as ever, but for some reason, it isn’t happening. Or maybe you’re not in any rush but you are curious as to how to get there (one day) with your bae. Either way, welcome, I am happy you could join us. You are going to need all of the information and tips you can get in this category because men are quite the complicated creatures, we unfairly get that rep when sometimes they play just as many games as us! When there is a will, there is a way.
You're going to be surprised how little you'll really have to do to nudge him in the right direction. But as always, we're all different, and astrology plays a part in our uniqueness. You may think it's a little weird to be using your man's astrological sign to help you convince him to pop the question, but trust us...this will work.
Here are 15 ways to get him to propose to you based on his zodiac.
16 Air Signs: (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Let them breathe and they will be yours forever. Release your inner free spirit, girl! Dating and eventually marrying an air sign is a wild ride and you have to be up for it. It is a rewarding partnership, indeed. You just have to know that you are signing up for a life of adventure and excitement with an air sign. Can you handle it? You should be able to! You only live one life, so you may as well make the best of it. If you want an air sign to permanently settle down with you and only you, make sure that you are the best travel buddy and partner in crime they can ask for. And do not try to control or change them, that will not go over well and your dreams and hopes of a phenomenal wedding will go right out of the window with them.
15 Gemini: Excitement Is What He Craves Most
A Gemini has the attention span of a goldfish which is approximately eight seconds. This goes for women and men both – I myself am a Gemini and I can tell you that I can never sit still and I get bored very quickly. A Gemini man is the exact same way – so make sure you bring the excitement in your relationship. A Gemini is commitment-phobic enough so if they see a mediocre, boring life with you for the rest of their existence they will probably not settle down with you. They need a partner in crime, a travel buddy and a best friend all in one. They need to constantly be challenged mentally and physically which is no easy feat. If they can see that you share the same pass for life as you do, there is a good bet that they won’t feel like they have to look anywhere else, ever again.
14 Libra: Show Him The Charm
Libras are usually the most liked person in the room. They are friends with everybody and anybody, it’s quite hard not to like one. They are level-headed and balanced and they hate more than anything confrontation or to get on someone’s bad side. They are charmers to no end and they pride themselves on it. Show him that you can handle all of the people that are in his life and match that wit and charm! He wants someone by his side at all of the social functions and events he gets invited to (and there will be a lot) who can crack a joke or make someone smile just as much as he can. If you are not a people person, don’t even bother trying to get him to propose to you. It will never happen because he knows that he needs a girl who will appreciate a healthy social life.
13 Aquarius: Always Be Your Unique, True Self
Aquarius men are the type to pick up and leave everything behind and move to Thailand to an elephant sanctuary. They are fiercely independent; gypsy souls and they don’t do well with someone who isn’t going to behave in the same manner. They also hate, more than anything, someone who is fake and disingenuous. And they are extremely intelligent and can sense when a person isn’t being real almost immediately. They are also widely interested every type of culture that the world has to offer. People and places that are different from the status quo is what intrigues them the most. With that being said, remember to always be yourself. Everyone has quirks and idiosyncracies, so let that shine through with your Aquarius. Once he sees that, he won’t want to lose you for the rest of his life because he knows how hard and rare that is to find in this world!
12 Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Go with the flow and be patient with your water sign lover. Quite often there will be rocky and rough tides with them, but if you really love and want to be with them for the rest of your life you are going to have to learn to roll with the punches and learn to accept them and their quirky, emotional ways. They are very sensitive and are easily hurt so you are going to have to try your best to not say anything that they may take personally and sometimes it can most definitely feel that you are walking on eggshells with them but unfortunately, they are just temperamental and unpredictable by nature. However, they make for phenomenal and fiercely loyal boyfriends (and husbands!) if you can deal with the moodiness and the instability at times. A water sign is with you for life, for better or for worse.
11 Cancer: Be Aware Of His Feelings And Care For Them Deeply
Ah, the Cancerian man. You have to be very in touch with your feelings and emotions when dating a cancer. They are low-key the most sensitive men on the planet and even if they don’t come out and cry when you hurt their feelings, they will lash out in other ways. And they just love a good grudge. If you disrespect them in any way, even if you didn’t mean it, they will never forget it. and it is hard to come back from, impossible almost. You are going to have to learn how to deal with his emotions in a constructive and mature manner. He is quite the fragile one, but once he feels safe and comfortable with you, he makes for a great partner. He will have to ensure that he can be vulnerable with you and that you truly deeply care for him before he makes the ultimate commitment: marriage.
10 Scorpio: Be A No-Nonsense Kind Of Chick
Don’t even bother trying to play games with a Scorpio to get him to throw a ring on your finger, it won’t work. In fact, it is the worst thing you can do. Instead, try being open and straight up about how you are feeling. Let him know that you want to take that next step, don’t be afraid to share with him your concerns about the direction of your relationship. He may listen, and he may not. But it will be a win-win in your book. He will respect the honesty and you can get your point across and your thoughts heard. A Scorpio loves nothing more than honesty. He is a straight-shooter kind of guy, the guy that will never cheat and he'll always be genuine and he'll be straight up real with you. This is something that a Scorpio man loves to see in his women as well. Show him that and he’ll show you a proposal of a lifetime. They are after all, the most romantic sign in the zodiac.
9 Pisces: Always Give Him His Own Time
Oh, Pisces men. They are certainly not my cup of tea. They are emotional and moody and complex: to say the least. However, they are also passionate and hopeless romantics and they make or great partners (if you have an unlimited amount of patience.) They are also creatives, often artists or writers and their mental capacity are unlimited. They are the type of guy you stay up all night on a rooftop with talking about life. However, a Pisces will always need his own space to breathe because they are constantly trapped in their thoughts and need time to process things that are going in his life. Pisces men fall hard and fall often, and he will always stay devoted if you respect and understand the very complicated nature of him. A Pisces truly loves their alone time but if you give them a reason to stick around, they won’t go anywhere.
8 Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Fire signs are so ready to walk all over someone and take advantage. It doesn’t make them bad men, or bad people for that matter – it just means that they are used to getting their way and they aren’t used to compromising. Fiercely stubborn and stuck in their ways they have quite a hard time settling down and often they do not have to. These signs are so often smooth talkers and they have tons of women at their disposal. But the one woman who gets their attention – and keeps it forever – is the woman that always holds their ground with them. The woman who knows who she is and won’t tolerate any nonsense. They have to respect you in order to stick around otherwise you will get burned with a fire sign – not to be cliché. You have to fight fire with fire, okay I’m done with the fire metaphors.. you get the hint.
7 Aries: Stand Your Ground, Always
An Aries man will walk over you if you allow it. It’s sort of not even his fault: it is just in their nature. They are aggressive and dominant and command respect. They don’t want someone who is going to stand on the sidelines and allow themselves to be treated like a doormat. This is the type of girl that an Aries man would eat right up and spit out. There is no worse turn-off for them than a woman who can’t hold her own. If you want your Aries man to take you and your relationship seriously, make sure to always check him and let him know your boundaries and what is and what is not okay with you. If he does something disrespectful, make sure to check him. Say what you mean and mean what you say, don’t just cave because you miss him or he says all of the right things. A strong woman is the one that he asks to be his bride.
6 Leo: Be A Lady Boss, Always
A strong and independent woman is what a Leo craves the most. He likes the woman who holds her own and can pay her bills on time, the woman who doesn’t need anyone’s help. Leo men hate weakness and dependency because they are the complete opposite of both of those things. They are the business owners, the CEOs. The success stories. A Leo will always put himself first, unfortunately, and he has no time to waste to sit and take care of you. He will need you to learn to take care of yourself at times. If you are the least bit needy, good luck obtaining a Leo’s heart forever. Make sure that when the going gets rough you know how to handle it. that is the girl that a Leo settles down with, and if you get one to propose to you: congratulations. Leos are almost impossible to capture.
5 Sagittarius: Be Patient, My Friend
It is a fallacy that you have to stop playing the chasee in relationships. Sure, he knows that he has you but maintaining your own life is important as well. A Sagittarius is the charming, witty flirt and he can have anyone he wants. It is a miracle that you got him to somehow be your boyfriend let alone your fiancé, so have a little patience. Trying to tie down a free-spirited man such as a Sagittarius will never work in your favor if you try to confine his freedom and space. Give him room to breathe. And always make him crave more – reveal yourself in layers. Have him learn something new about you every day even if you guys have been together forever. A Sagittarius is used to having women at his disposal 24/7 and if you can give yourself to him a little at a time, he is going to stick around for the long haul.
4 Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
If you want your earth sign man to make the ultimate commitment to you, make sure to always keep a level head. Earth signs are just that: stable and constant…like the earth. They despise unpredictability, the unknown and they especially despise a woman who can’t keep it together for more than five minutes without throwing a temper tantrum, complaining or anything like such. A man who falls under these three signs doesn’t do well with drama – or any confrontation at all for that matter. That is not to say that they will shy away from having a conversation that will include some disagreements, but if you are going to take it to Days of Our Lives dramatic it is best to maybe re-evaluate your behavior before discussing anything with them and you best believe that they will be re-evaluating their relationship with you if you are a constant source of problems in their life.
3 Taurus: Don’t Be Overdramatic
There is nothing a Taurus hates more than drama. When he sees a drama queen approaching, he heads for the hills as fast as possible. Tauruses are stable and sort of mundane in a way, they hate unpredictability. They are the type of guy to cook you a romantic dinner at home just the two of you instead of going out to a bar. A Taurus will see a woman who fills her life with drama as nothing but unstable. If you want a Taurus to get down on one knee, make sure that you are level-headed and mature. Of course, we all get angry and upset sometimes but if you don’t know how to keep your emotions in check don’t expect a Taurus to want you to be their wife. He probably won’t even want you to be their girlfriend. They need emotional security, not someone who flies off the handle 24/7.
2 Virgo: Be His Number One Support System
A Virgo loves to nit-pick at everyone around them, but they are most hard on themselves. Their inner critic is always loud and clear in their subconscious. They are perfectionists to a T and nothing that they accomplish seems to be good enough for them, constantly striving to be the best person that they can be and there is no room for error. A Virgo man needs to be reminded that no one is perfect and they are going to mess up at times – and it is okay! They need support and they need a cheerleader to keep them going throughout life because they will struggle with self-image at times. If you can be there for them wholeheartedly he will ensure that he will never lose you. Show him that you will be there no matter what and you will probably get the ring of your dreams – Mr. control freak will probably want to be involved in every detail and have it custom made for you.
1 Capricorn: Be Just As Ambitious And Career-Minded As He Is
There is absolutely no slowing down a Capricorn. They will not stop until they conquer every single one of their goals in life and they have no time for a woman who doesn’t feel the same way. This is a man that is probably going to be working long and hard hours so they are going to need a woman who has her own grind. In order for a Capricorn to permanent settle down they need to feel that you have that drive and that soul in your life. They want someone to build an empire with and a career-minded woman is the woman that they marry. In addition, make sure you have your sh*t together. A Capricorn will not respect or take seriously a girl who carries too much emotional baggage or issues. They are too busy chasing the dream for that crap. Leave that at the door if you want a Capricorn husband.
