Finding Love at a Wedding by Sign
Identify that special someone’s sign — then make your move before the bouquet is tossed!
Going to a wedding without a plus-one can seem a bit daunting, but it also provides a wealth of opportunities to meet and mingle with other singles! Think about it: everyone’s in a romantic state of mind, and the stage is set for romance — at the altar and beyond!
Astrology can help you get a read on the sign of the guest you have your eye on — then help you plan your attack to sweep them off their feet.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
It’s hard for those born under the Warrior sign to resist wearing a bit of red — whether it’s in their cumberbund, jewelry, shoes or sash! The one place you won’t usually see red is in their cheeks. It’s not that Aries is shameless, but this Fire sign is bold — and this quality comes out on the dance floor, in the way they chatter to you in line at the buffet and in any toasts they might make to the bride and groom. They’ll probably be first to offer a raised glass, too! If you’ve zeroed in on an Aries, keep conversation quick and entertaining, because you’ll have to fight to keep their focus — Aries loves excitement!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Quietly elegant, the Bull sign will opt for earth-toned outfits in a fine fabric that’s soft or pleasing to the touch. And this is the sign most likely to be flying solo at the reception — Bulls don’t mind traveling light! You might see them slowly working the room, and when you decide to swoop in to make your introduction, keep it classy. Taureans are ruled by Venus’ more toned-down side, so while they value beauty, they also admire grace and charm. Be polite, appropriate and just a little flattering, and you can easily catch the Bull’s eye!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
If that cutie at the table across from you has all the guests around them in stitches, you’ll know you’re probably lusting after a Gemini! The wit of the zodiac keeps conversation lively and entertaining, and Gemini is often the nucleus of any party. Making yourself noticed won’t be easy, and you’ll definitely need to be armed with something clever to say in order to keep their attention. If you can talk fast and keep up the charm, you can isolate your Gemini by inviting them to step out to the patio to continue the conversation. Geminis generally take up anyone on an offer to keep the talk going!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
You’ll probably find this nurturing sign at the “kids’ table,” making sure the smaller guests are having as good a time as the adults. Because this sign is all about family, you’ll have to make it clear, immediately, that you’re close to yours — or talk about your love of children. Whipping out a wallet-sized photo of your niece or nephew is a sure ice-breaker. If you’re good with the tykes, you have an automatic in with this caring, cuddly sign. Then offer to grab the Crab a plate of food from the buffet — they like to be cared for, too!
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
If your crush of the night is dressed to the nines — or even a bit over-dressed for the occasion — you’re most likely scoping out a Leo! This glitzy sign goes for glamour, and (like their Aries friends) they’ll take it to the hilt with toasts! You might even find them following the videographer around, begging for their chance to make a taped testimonial of well-wishing to the bride and groom. Win over the Lion sign with a show of bravery: ask to cut in on a dance and toss out a direct (even mildly cocky!) pick-up line when you have them in your arms. Leos respond well to courage!
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
This is the sign of subdued style, and they like their men and women similarly dressed. If you want to approach this simplicity-loving sign, take off any gaudy jewelry or accessories, then politely compliment your Virgo crush on how they make understated seem elegant. This reserved and health-conscious sign will most likely be picking at a salad, so break the ice by pointing out the antioxidant benefits of red wine, then offer them a glass of shiraz or pinot noir! When the next slow dance comes on, respectfully nod in their direction and offer your hand. The oh-so-proper Virgo also has a definite sense of personal space, so don’t force it — allow them to press themselves to you!
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Unfortunately, the partnership-oriented sign of the zodiac will definitely not be arriving alone. Still, the loving, devoted Libra is worth the fight! Make a few inquiries about who your crush’s date is — if it’s simply a friend or sibling, proceed with polite conversation and drop in careful details about yourself. This Venus-ruled sign doesn’t do small talk: they subtly interview potential mates. And the discerning Libra will know in an instant whether or not you’re for them, so choose your words carefully and be nothing short of romantic.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
If it’s a formal wedding, this dark sign will be decked out in black evening wear or (for the ladies) a siren red. But the detective of the zodiac will also be standing off to the side, sipping their cocktail as they scrutinize the personal interactions of all the other guests. In fact, Scorpio may be predicting wedding hook-ups! If you’d like to ensnare this smoldering sign, catch their eye with a seductive glance to let them know they can get in on the action. But beware — the intensity of Scorpio’s glance might actually make you weak in the knees. Compose yourself, wink and act demure. That’s it. This control-loving sign will take it from there.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
This sociable sign won’t be hanging around in a corner, so the trick is to find a way to separate them from their herd of friends. You’ll know you’re dealing with a Sag if they’re surrounded by lighthearted people. Be brave and find a way to lure them onto the dance floor — the sign of the Archer is all about movement, and may end up sweeping you all over the ballroom! Seal the deal by asking them about their deepest travel desire, and winkingly suggest taking them there sometime — if they don’t mind starting with dinner at a more local spot first. Then follow-through on the planning: Sags put a premium on authenticity.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
If the object of your attraction is dressed in elegant attire that suggests they should be part of the wedding party — but even if they’re not, you’ll know you’ve spotted a Capricorn: they dress appropriately for every occasion, and they’re in their element when everyone around them is gussied up, too! It’s almost a given that they’ll have a date, because this serious sign sticks to tradition. Once you’ve sussed out that they’re single, go the conventional route and ask a mutual friend to make an introduction for you. Then up your game so you can carry on an intelligent conversation, all while following drink-fetching etiquette.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
If you’re eyeing a tattooed, pink-haired beauty — or a stunner in a collared shirt with loud print — you’ll know you’ve just become smitten with an Aquarius. Both in fashion and physical appearance, there’s always something unique about the Water-Bearer sign — luckily, this makes it easy to strike up a conversation or find some common ground. Compliment them on their offbeat accessories or impeccably-maintained mohawk, then mention that you find their individuality refreshing. This kind of flattery is sure to keep an Aquarius hooked!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Male or female, you’ll know that the striking stranger is a Pisces if you see them get teary-eyed during the wedding ceremony. Water sign Pisces loves to see depth of emotion — especially devotion! — on display, and they live for enchanted evenings where loving commitment is celebrated. After the ceremony, sidle up to the Pisces as the first slow song begins and offer to sweep them across the dance floor. This dreamy interaction will all but put them in a trance, and the sign of the Fish can be yours — hook, line and sinker — when you whisper to them how much you admire their ability to show their emotions so honestly.
