At WhatsYourPrice, we’re anti-pickup lines or dating gimmicks. However, there is one time the eye-roll-inducing “What’s your sign?” line may actually come in handy: planning a first date! Whether or not you’re in the habit of checking your horoscope, we’ve put together this list to help you plan an adventurous date that matches the sensibilities of your Zodiac sign.
Is your new connection a playful, competitive fire sign? Or are they a compassionate water sign? Do they prefer quiet nights in listening to their favorite albums, or would a live concert be a better fit?
Turning to the 12 signs of the Zodiac may be all the intel you need to ensure your next date aligns with what your connection is looking for.
Check out our guide to the best out-of-the-box dates for every Zodiac sign, and plan a night that outshines them all.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As the first sign in the Zodiac, Aries have a natural inclination to always come in first. Their passionate, competitive, and playful spirit make them a blast to be around, so you’ll likely have fun no matter what you do. Because of their fiery nature, they will likely most enjoy going to a live sporting event. You can also take the competition into your own hands with a game of pool, darts, or even axe throwing. Aries signs will rarely say no to a horoscope-derived adventure date!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taureans are known as the most “tame” of the sun signs. Generally viewed as homebodies, a Taurus’s idea of adventure may look more like a cooking class for two. However, they do also tend to have an aptitude for the finer things in life, so a night of upscale cuisine and cocktails at a trendy new restaurant isn’t off the table.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Geminis are generally the chameleon of the Zodiac, famously known for their two sides that help them blend into any situation. They are typically social butterflies, so a double or group date night out to an action-packed movie or comedy club would be a great way to give a Gemini the feels they are looking for. They also need a lot of stimulation, so a carnival, theme park, or festival would be an ideal stop for this fun-loving sign.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancers are emotional and intuitive creatures and might prefer to keep their dates on the traditional side at first. A long talk over dinner may be the ideal date night for a Cancer. Or, you two could venture slightly outside of the norm and find a drive-in movie theater instead.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Being a fire sign, Leos tend to have a fiery personality. They like to let it shine by getting dressed to the nines and turning heads wherever they go. Let them see and be seen with a glamorous night out to a show or dancing at a lavish nightclub. Bonus points if you show them off at a fancy dinner first. Or become part of the prep with a day of head-to-toe pampering before the big night out. Tip: Leos love compliments, so be sure to acknowledge their effort and style.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos are known for being sophisticated and kind, but whatever you do, always have a plan! A Virgo thrives on organization and knowing what’s happening next. While dating a Virgo, take a stroll through your local Farmers Market and grab the ingredients for that night’s dinner for two. In general, Virgos are also incredibly smart, so give them a chance to show off their skills at a Trivia or game night. An evening out at a museum or art show is another way to their analytical heart.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras are known as the peacekeepers of the crew. They strive for harmony in all things, which includes date night. An adventurous outing for them may be a couples meditation class or a visit to a local arboretum. This air sign also tends to have a logical side, and they love to be entertained. See how well you can work together in an escape room, followed by a night of live music or people-watching at a hip new bar or restaurant.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Born in the season of spook, Scorpios are drawn to the dark and mysterious side of life. To dazzle their desire for thrills and chills on date night, don’t be afraid to think outside of the norm. A luxurious five-course dinner will appeal to their appetite for the unknown; while a night out stargazing or a breathtaking boat ride may get this water sign deep in conversation.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Ever the free spirit, Sagittarians generally love to be outdoors. Get their wheels turning with a bike ride along a scenic trail, then stop for a picnic with an amazing view. Or fuel their affinity for animals with a horseback ride into the sunset. Giddy up!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Ambitious Capricorns can play as hard as they work. They prefer classic dates, so take them out for a lovely day sipping Sauvignon Blanc in wine country. Or, you can learn something together during a gourmet cooking class. Caps also have a competitive side, so sweep them off to a sporting event.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Creative and quirky, an Aquarian desires dates as unique as they are. An Aquarian would love to run wild at an amusement park or sing like no one is listening at a rock concert. Also, their go-with-the-flow attitude can quickly take you from a Shakespearean play to a sci-fi flick in the same evening. This sign definitely dances to the beat of its own drum, so it’s best to be ready for anything.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces are very in tune with their emotions and allow their strong intuitions to guide the way. You can impress your Pisces partner with a trip to a psychic since they are often considered to be nearly “psychic” themselves. Pisceans are also born romantics, so you can pack a basket of canapés and watch the sunset from the shore of a quiet beach, or attend a poetry reading featuring works from their favorite lyricist.
