Life changes a lot between your 20s and your 30s. What you want and expect from love does too as your astro sign sends you on the path to your future.
Your 20s is the time to have fun, experiment, and learn — and you can learn just as much in a night club as you can in a lecture hall. How else will you find out who you can get along with over the long term and what qualities you really need and value in your man? By the time you hit your 30s, you've got a much better idea of your direction, and your love life needs to keep up with your new goals.
Here's a little astro advice on who you should have fun with while you can, and who you might come to appreciate as you hit your 30s and the rest of your life comes into focus.
Strong, beautiful, scene-stealing you — that Virgo who stands outside the spotlight and simply watches who's in the middle, he's had his eye on you.
He's the kind of dude who's quiet and in control, the one who does all the work, but seldom gets the credit he deserves.
That's why he's hesitated to ask you out — the Ram who always seems to much in charge of her world. Why not make his daydreams come true and have a fling? The differences between you only make things exciting, and he'll make you feel like a queen.
Experimenting with your dating and social life is a lot of fun when you're younger. But, once your career is finally off the ground, and you're starting to get more serious about life in general, you're looking for compatibility.
Now, the dynamic sensation that is an Aries woman will find few men in this world who are truly up to her challenge, but Gemini is the exception to the rule.
The Gemini man brings his own whirlwind of energy, and you can spend a long time exploring just how your mutual forces can get together.
Libra is flighty and a little cool for your warm-hearted self, but the two of you share a love of music, arts, and beauty in general, and he'll certainly be taken in by the harmonious home environment a Taurus woman inevitably creates. So what if it's not a long-term prospect? His sense of fun will have to trying new things, and you'll both learn a lot from each other.
In their immature forms, the Bull and the Ram do not go together so well. Every argument can become a battle royale, with the immovable object and unstoppable force locked in endless conflict.
But, once you've both lived a little and let your egos mature, the two of you actually have great potential.
Aries fire will energize the Bull, who can be a stick in the mud, and Taurus grounds Aries' sometimes impulsive side. You complement each other's faults — just as long as you can keep the fights to a minimum.
You will dazzle Leo with an erratic energy that will keep him guessing. That's what draws him to your bright, dancing flame. You'll respond to his natural warmth, and the two of you are unstoppable on the dance floor, or just lighting up the night clubs of your home town in general. A bright spark will light up between you, but you also crave the kind of constant change and variety that Leo finds hard to take. Have fun while it lasts.
Gemini and Aquarius are both Air signs, and that means a lot of erratic behavior, sudden changes of plans, and missed dates because someone just forgot, or got caught up in something else and lost track of time. But, once you mature a little, you'll recognize just how fantastic the two of you brainy, creative people are together, and it might slow you down just enough to make it work.
You'll be attracted by this off-beat dude with a quick sense of humor because he's outside your usual social circls. He'll love your Moon maiden appeal, from those big, liquid eyes to your dreamy imagination. There will be a mutual fascination with each other that you'll find hard to escape. And why would you want to? While you're in your experimenting years when it comes to dating, you could do a lot worse than someone who will treat you with respect and show you a wilder side of life than you're used to.
When you're looking for a long term relationship, fellow Water sign Scorpio understands your emotional nature, and all your many moods. While you may have met him at a party, and you'll certainly find many Scorpions at the clubs, he values a peaceful, comforting home life as much as you do. He'll have your back, and help you chase away your blues. What more could you ask for? Scorpio will be in it for reals, though, so think twice until you're ready to take the plunge.
Now you, golden girl of the astro signs, know that one day you will rule the world. But, even a queen is allowed to have a little harmless fun while she's younger, isn't she?
Cancer is the kind of guy who's sure of his own identity, and he won't be one of your usual crowd of admirers.
That might be what first attracted you to this well put together dude with a quiet sense of confidence. You'll have an attraction of opposites — he's the Moon to your Sun, after all — that will burn bright, but probably not for very long.
Two Fire signs together is a lot of heat. Are you up for it yet, Ms. Leo? A younger, more inexperienced Lioness can be possessive and jealous, and the Archer's life, friends, and interests will take him in a thousand different directions — not all of them revolving around your majesty. If your ego can handle it, though, he'll be your intellectual equal, and will never get in the way of your ambitions. He'll be your biggest cheerleader, in fact. As long as you're looking for a partner rather than a subject, he's your man.
You're practical and hard-headed, but anyone who thought that you had no idea how to let loose and have a good time doesn't know all the sides of your personality, Virgo.
You'll enjoy Aries' bright spark of energy, and he certainly knows how to take you out for a night of fun.
He may not be serious enough to hold your attention for very long, but he can certainly be a memorable fling you can tell stories about later.
The two of you share a level-headed approach to life, and you both like to keep your public faces polished. Virgo is a perfectionist, and Capricorn is one of the few signs that will truly appreciate your attention to detail.
Together, you can combine forces to become a power couple to be reckoned with.
You'll help each other in your careers and create the kind of enviable home life others in your social circle will drool over.
Lovely Libra and mercurial Gemini, you're both Air signs, which means that you share a less emotional approach to life. Gemini is a like a breath of fresh air, and his constant changes and creative approach to life will strike a chord with you.
You'll also share a love of beauty, art, and music, and the two of you will talk and laugh for hours.
Now, Gemini's restless spirit will eventually interfere with your need for peace and harmony, but there's a lot of fun to be had before you hit that point.
Pisces has a gentle approach to life and love that suits you to a tee. Like the Libra icon, you spend a lot of your time tinkering with those scales so that your world is balanced just right, and Pisces, with his casual style, won't upset your apple cart like many other signs do. He won't bowl you over trying to impress you like your average Leo, but you'll be the best of friends, and he'll understand you intuitively like few are able.
Dark, magnetic you will be fascinated by Pisces. Let's face it, he's often among the hottest in the astro signs.
He'll have his admirers and you'll be intrigued. You'll find him smart and funny in a laid-back kind of way that you're equally smart enough to appreciate.
To you, there will always be something elusive about the Fish, and you don't back down from a challenge. You'll have fun chasing him for a while, even if you eventually scare him away with your intensity.
It's no secret that Scorpio can be wild and independent, especially the younger demographic. While you're in your extreme years — and whether that means partying or studying, you are always extreme — you probably won't even notice the Virgos in your circle. He'll dress in quality threads, but not flashy.
He won't make a big, obvious play for you, but, once you've settled down enough to stop and take notice, you'll see an intelligent, hardworking man who sees the world as deeply as you do, and will understand your many layers.
Pay close attention and read between the lines.
The two of you, on the surface, are not much alike. You're the lively life of the party, and while you wouldn't call the Bull a wall flower, he won't be the center of attention either. But, you might just meet this music lover on the dance floor and you'll appreciate the way he's confident, but not aggressive or pushy, while he'll love the upbeat force of nature that is you. It can be a hot attraction of opposites that will burn brightly, but probably not for very long.
The Archer, it has to be said, can be flighty. You have a keen, curious mind that takes you in several different directions all at once, and it can be hard to keep up with you at all, especially when you're younger. Libra, constantly balancing the scales, can be an awful match up if you're in full whirlwind mode. But, if you've lived long enough to mellow out and slow down a little, you'll find a smart, charming, artistic hottie in Libra. He'll treat you like an equal and won't stifle your spirit with jealousy — the perfect partner to explore life with for the long run.
You, Capricorn, have a solid plan for your future, and you like to present the world with a fairly conservative face. Away from profs and bosses, though, you are also known to love a wild night in the clubs once in a while too. Before you snag that big promotion and corner office is the time to really indulge that wild side with a carefree Archer.
His inventive sense of fun will keep you guessing in a good way, and you'll certainly never be bored by his conversation or sense of humor.
Have fun before you need to worry about that unfortunate habit of his of blurting out the unvarnished truth, no matter how painful or awkward, and his complete disregard for appearances.
The classic Capricorn career arc is a long but steady climb, no matter what the field, and staying power once they get to the top of their field. You're a solid achiever, and you know appearances usually matter — one way or another.
You share that pragmatic approach to life with Leo, along with your high-flying ambitions. Leo's more aggressive style can help you find the spark to make that steady climb a little faster.
The difference between the two of you and most of the world is that you actually have the strength and character to take you both all the way to the top. When you're ready, the Lion will help you conquer the world.
There are many astrologers, Water Bearer, who say that Aquarius and Scorpio are the worst possible astrological combination of all. But, that kind of statement just makes you laugh, and probably makes you want to check out the nearest Scorpio just for fun. That's what you'll find with Mr. Intense — also known as Mr. Extreme.
Your nightclubbing escapades as a couple will be legendary, and you'll have plenty of wild fun with the Scorpion.
You may just bring out the worst in each other — that's the problem — and his constant intensity will lose its appeal for your restless spirit sooner or later.
When your wild child days are behind you, at least for the most part, you will finally begin to appreciate the solid qualities that Taurus can offer the Water Bearer. He's warm, and reliable, and although you may be known for a streak or two of flighty behavior in your own past, you've come to realize just how great reliable can be.
Both of you are Fixed signs, which means that, now that your gypsy 20s are behind you, you might just be looking for a long-term relationship, something the Bull is always receptive to.
He'll admire your intelligence and spirit, respect you, and always treat you well. Best of all, he's a romantic, a quality which you may also finally have come to appreciate.
Pretty Pisces usually never has to look far when it comes to dating and finding love.
You have a naturally sweet and feminine appeal and a romantic heart, but you're not flashy like some of your sisters. Capricorn is understated, like you, and also like you, he has depths inside his low-key exterior that you can help him explore.
Exploration is probably where you should file Capricorn, since his cool approach to life and love will leave your romantic heart wanting more over the long run. But a hot fling? It's in the cards.
In your fellow Water sign Cancer, romantic Pisces can find her true soul mate. You'll need to be mature and confident enough to handle the many moods of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, but the rewards will be worth it.
He understands the depths of your emotions because he feels those watery waves inside himself too.
He's protective of those he cares about and can be your safe haven against the uncertain world.
