Making up is hard to do. Need help? Pay attention to your lover's zodiac sign.
The next time you find yourself in the dog house, consider these tips and you'll be back in your beloved's arms, rather than scratching at the back door for scraps!
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Don't beat around the bush with forthright Aries. Ask for their forgiveness, admit your wrongdoing, and promise to never commit the same mistake again. Stick to your word, because Aries has no tolerance for broken promises. Don't wait for a "good time" to apologize, because the Ram will jump right back into the dating pool. A public apology may be in order if you've wounded this lover's ego.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Taurus is the most stubborn sign in the zodiac. If the two of you have had a fight, you need to admit that your lover was right in the first place. Until you do, your conversations will remain stalled. It's also good to craft a plan that will help you deal with future conflicts in a constructive, healthy way. That way, you will ease the fears of your security-conscious lover.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Send a funny note of apology. Nothing breaks down Gemini's reserve like humor. If you've made a serious error, write a heartfelt letter asking for your lover's forgiveness and send it overnight express. This sign admires swift, decisive action, and won't wait by the phone for your call. If you really want to smooth things over with this lover, you've got to communicate. Otherwise, Gemini will sense you are holding back something.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Making up with Cancer requires patience, delicacy, and tact. The Crab's feelings are easily bruised. Don't make light of your mistakes, and never tease them about theirs. Telling this sign that you can't live without their love will usually do the trick. If Cancer still pouts after your apology, fix a home-cooked meal and fuss over their welfare. Make more time for this lover, and listen attentively to their concerns.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Flattery will get you everywhere with Leo. Apologize profusely for your misdeeds, and declare that you don't deserve their love. Showering this sign with gourmet chocolates and stunning flowers can also do the trick. Lions love lavish tributes. Make a greater effort to be worthy of their love by dressing well. When Leo sees that you're trying hard to earn their affection, they'll let you back into their life.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Clean up your language. Virgo can't stand swears and curses. Bone up on your etiquette. Knowing the proper thing to do will melt the Virgin's reserve. Be on time, and tidy up your home. This sign will be far more likely to accept your apology if you clean up your act. If you want to make a peace offering, choose a good book. Virgo doesn't like emotional appeals; they prefer dealing with problems on a logical front.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Express more interest in Libra's activities. Brush up on your conversational skills. Make a point of complimenting this sign more often. Anybody who is born under the sign of the Scales needs constant verbal and physical assurance. Offer a formal written and spoken apology. Libra needs to know that you are serious about changing your ways. Make more of an effort to keep the romance alive in your relationship.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Make a dramatic gesture to demonstrate your devotion. As far as Scorpions are concerned, talk is cheap. Only positive action will get you back into their good graces. Whether this means breaking a bad habit, getting help for a serious problem, or ending ties that have undermined your relationship is immaterial. The important thing is that you act to satisfy Scorpio's concerns. Always take this sign's complaints seriously.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Make a warm, affectionate peace offering. Sagittarians love pets, and may not be able to resist the lure of a cute puppy or kitten. Adopt a more open mind. Archers don't obey any social conventions, and won't enjoy being held to arbitrary rules. Become friends with their pals. This sign places greater emphasis on their social relationships than their romantic ones. The sooner you become one of the gang, the quicker you'll make up.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Be honest and forthcoming. Capricorn can spot a lie from a mile away. If you screwed up, admit it and formulate a plan to do better. Empty promises will get you nowhere with this sign. Goats place great stock in material security. Opening a savings account will demonstrate your willingness to forge a stable future together. Never tease a Capricorn, especially when you're trying to make up. This sign doesn't play around!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Invite Aquarius to discuss your problems over coffee. The Water-bearer can't resist a free exchange of ideas. Resist getting emotional with this sign, or you'll remain single. Don't keep any secrets from Aquarius, or your relationship will continue to stagnate. If you want this sign to stick around, you've got to keep everything out in the open. Be more open to adventure, and take the Water-bearer's suggestions from time to time.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Throw yourself at the mercy of this compassionate sign. Pisces hates to see anybody suffer. Be less possessive and demanding. The Fish can't stand a romance that resembles a prison. Accept the fact that this lover is extremely sensitive, and needs to be handled with kid gloves. Vow to be more tender and loving. Get into the habit of expressing your love on a daily basis, not just special occasions.
