Your Ideal Valentine’s Day Plans, According to Your Zodiac Sign

It’s that time of year – Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. There can be so much pressure to plan the perfect date for your SO, making it easy to stress or leave planning to the last minute. But don’t fret! I bet I can guess your ideal plans – the things you’ll be dreaming about doing this year – based on your zodiac sign.

Quick tip: For those who doubt astrology, don’t just look at your sun sign. Your venus sign is what rules your habits, and how you are in relationships. To find your venus sign, you can do a free birth chart on Cafe Astrology – (thank me later!)


Your competitive nature comes through in many areas of your life – finding the perfect gift for your significant other included. For the always active Aries, after picking up the perfect gift you ordered weeks ago you’ll ideally want to take your SO on a spontaneous date somewhere fun and lively. Whether it’s a quick road trip to explore a new city or just trying out a cool new restaurant, you’ll have a blast shaking it up this Valentine’s Day. 


Treat yo’ self is the Taurus motto all year long. You like the finer things in life, and you deserve them! Luxurious gifts for yourself or your SO are a must. When it comes to the actual details of your day, ideally you’ll have a cozy Netflix marathon, and close off the night with a home cooked candlelit meal with your SO. 


As a sociable, fun-loving gemini your ideal Valentine’s Day plans include a wild night out. Ideally, you’ll want to start the night off with dinner somewhere new and lively. You’re all about chatting it up – the fun conversation with your SO is everything. After dinner you’ll want to head to the bar for some games and dancing. 


As a Cancer, your ideal Valentine’s Day full of romance, boxed chocolate and flowers. As a cancer you’re probably a bit of a homebody who prioritize comfort. Ideally you’ll want to have a romantic candlelit dinner at home, followed by snuggling up and watching a rom-com with your SO. 


As a Leo, you love being the center of attention. After grabbing yourself a super cute new outfit at the mall, your ideal Valentine’s Day includes a photoshoot with your SO followed by a romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant. Later, you’ll want to stop by your friend’s Valentine’s Day party and dance the night away. 


Virgos are notoriously organized, so your ideal Valentine’s Day plans have been in the works for months. After exchanging gifts, you and your SO would start your day off with a couples massage, and follow it up with a romantic dinner. 


Libras love all things beautiful, and Valentine’s Day is no different. After picking out the perfect outfit, your ideal date with your SO would include a trip to an art museum. Later, you and your SO would venture out to a coffee shop. Libras love all things intellectual, so the conversation is everything


As a Scorpio, you prefer a more intimate setting for your ideal Valentine’s Day date. Try venturing out to a drive in theater with your SO to see a scary flick while snuggled up in your car. Later, you’ll want to bring your SO back to your place for a romantic night in full of candles, Netflix, and chinese take-out.


As a Sagittarius, you’re always up for fun, taking risks and adventure. Your ideal Valentine’s Day date would be nothing less than a spontaneous adventurous. You’d want to take your SO on a road trip – complete with stops to see cool sights and eclectic shops, of course. You’d want to close out the night with a candlelit picnic on a beach or at a campsite. As long as you’re with your SO, you’re up for whatever the day brings. 


As a Capricorn, you’re very goal-oriented. You already planned out your ideal Valentine’s Day itinerary months ago. You’re not the hopeless romantic type, but you got your SO the best gift this year, and look forward to the romantic dinner date at a fancy restaurant that you made reservations for months ago. 


As an Aquarius, you’re not really into doing what everyone else is doing, and Valentine’s Day is no different. Your ideal Valentine’s Day plans are anything but ordinary – you want to go to a concert for a super niche band, or do something different like rock climbing. If it’s anything other than your typical Valentine’s Day plans, you’re all about it. 


As a Pisces, you’re a hopeless romantic. This makes Valentine’s Day your holiday. Your ideal Valentine’s Day date is classic romance: a rom-com at your local theater (or better yet, at home), followed by a romantic dinner. Afterwards, you’ll want to go to a cafe and just chat with your SO – you love learning new things about them.
