If you're in a relationship with a man, no matter what sign he is, research reveals that your guy wants one thing and one thing only from you on Valentine's Day -- a romantic evening with lots of great sex! For those in a relationship with a woman, though, Valentine's Day can be more of an emotional time. The operative question is, "How much do you love me?" So how do you satisfy each sign's need for affection on this day of love and romance? Look up your lover's zodiac sign below to see the gift that will satisfy their innermost desires!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
For him: Sweet talk will get you everywhere with this guy, so a card expressing your love is essential. He wants to see and feel how happy you are to be with him. The Aries man craves a romantic evening that lasts 'til the next morning, including delicious food and drink, perhaps a movie, and definitely a massage. Barring that, maybe a plant he can't easily kill.
For her: Diamonds are definitely this girl's best friend. Her tempestuous nature loves the fire and sparkle of gemstones. Even better if they're in an engagement ring! And if your Aries was born in the month of April, you'll score points knowing the diamond is April's birthstone. But if you can't afford such a high-end purchase, a charm bracelet with your names engraved in a heart will thrill her to her toes. A hot air balloon ride would really get her going, too.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
For him: A classic sensualist and romantic, this Venus-ruled man wants a romantic, candlelit dinner (ideally prepared by you with lots of love) and free flowing champagne or wine, followed by a hot oil massage and ... yes, you guessed it. Appeal to all his senses with beautiful flavors, silky fabrics, chill music and gorgeous sights -- like you!
For her: The Taurus woman has a lot on her plate, with all the work-related activities she juggles. Give her a lovely surprise that will lighten her load, like a spotless house, a romantic dinner, or a getaway she had no idea was coming. The fact that you paid attention when she once hinted around about a place she longed to visit will score you extra points.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
For him: This man is always doing a million things and tends to live in his head. He needs to be pampered a little -- by you. Have his favorite dinner or a trip to a place he loves all planned out, so he doesn't have to do a thing. Throw in lots of hugs and kisses and a great massage, and he'll be one happy camper. A framed picture of sexy you would also go over well.
For her: A 3-day sojourn out of town is right up the Gemini girl's alley, as she loves to visit new places. And, a letter or original poem that comes from your heart, however grammatically incorrect, would also be a big plus -- because that's what she'll surely do for you. A promise to do the dishes or clean the house for a week also rates highly with your Gemini lady.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
For him: "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" is the Cancer motto. Especially on Valentine's Day, your Moonboy wants a really special meal, whether you prepare it yourself or go out to his favorite place. A heart-shaped cake with pink frosting will also win him over. And, he'd love both giving and receiving random acts of passionate lovemaking throughout the day.
For her: This Moonchild wants you to demonstrate your affections in the most sentimental way possible. Start with a card that may seem flowery to you but will move her deeply. Add a message about how much you love her and why she's so special, then take her out to her favorite restaurant. You can't go wrong with pearls and roses, but if you're giving chocolates, make sure it's in her diet plans.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
For him: The Leo guy has a flair for the dramatic. He wants to see his woman dressed in revealing and sexually provocative lingerie, and he wants to see her doing an erotic, exotic dance for him prior to making wild, passionate love. A delicious pasta dinner cooked up by you, a night on the town reveling in his favorite music, or a fun play would also be greatly appreciated.
For her: It's crucial to your Leo woman that you put a lot of thought into whatever you give her. It may be simple, like a bouquet of daisies (if that's her favorite flower). Colorful balloons that say "I Love You" are great. The Lioness loves gold and gems, but if it doesn't reflect her style, a simple card and a tickets to a great concert would be better.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
For him: This guy tries so hard to please you (and everyone else) that any demonstration of your love will be welcome. Why not be outrageous and get a love poem to him printed in the newspaper, circle it with a big, red heart and present it to him with his morning coffee? Just don't forget that what he really wants most is some of your good lovin'.
For her: The earthy Virgo woman craves tangible proof of your commitment. A simple "promise ring" is good. Even better, go out shopping together and buy one for each other. Create a special love nest, then spend several hours pleasing her. She'd love a hike together to the top of a mountain where you shout your love for her to the world, or carve your names in a tree.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
For him: This man is a true romantic, and loves the hearts and flowers as much as you do. Give him something beautiful, like a silky shirt, a bottle of cologne, or you in your most delectable lingerie. You might also surprise him with a meal at an Asian restaurant -- his artistic soul would adore a lovely tea-garden setting complete with a bridge and koi pond.
For her: The Libra woman saves all the cards and love notes her beloved has ever given her, and takes them out periodically to savor the expressions of love. So a card with your feelings expressed in your own words is first and foremost. Then, treat her to an elegant meal by candlelight. Items of beauty are always welcome, from flowers to pretty lingerie.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
For him: This devoted man is thinking about you on Valentine's Day, and his satisfaction comes from making sure you are happy. Being extra receptive to his generous efforts to cook you a special meal (or bring you pleasure in other ways) is the best gift you can give him. You might return the favor with tickets to a great play or concert.
For her: For all her mysterious sexual allure, the Scorpio woman is a realist. For her, a quiet walk together appreciating the beauty of nature might express your love better than an over-the-top display of balloons and flowers. The sensual side of her craves your total attention, so plan a getaway to somewhere hidden and romantic, and watch as she absolutely swoons!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
For him: An outing for pizza on Valentine's Day will satisfy this simple guy's tastes -- and a lovely card with a box of chocolates (Sagittarius has a sweet tooth) will make him your little lapdog. An overnight road trip to a cabin in the woods with a blazing fireplace would please his outdoorsy soul, or think tickets to a great comedy show or film.
For her: The Sagittarian woman appreciates you taking the time to do something special for her, and values that more than an expensive gift. So cook her a special dinner with wine, candles, a red rose and a heartfelt card. Or you could plan a picnic somewhere beautiful in nature if it's warm enough, or have lunch at a place with a gorgeous view if it's not.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
For him: This man is always takin' care of business; your sweetness and caring are a balm to his parched soul. Surprise him with a visit to a day spa for mutual pampering, a romantic picnic, or elegant dinner. Shopping together for a special antique would be fun for this old-fashioned guy. A commitment to grow old together may be the best gift of all.
For her: This woman likes a sensual man. A 2-hour massage given by you would be her idea of Valentine heaven. It would be worth taking a class to learn how to do this properly -- her deep appreciation for your attention to her weary bones will pay off in unimaginable ways. Practical gifts are also good, like tickets to a show you'll both love.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
For him: Because he's in his head so much, when it comes to Valentine's Day this guy wants something simple that he can touch. A home-cooked, candlelit dinner and sensual massage would be just the ticket. A drive in the country and a meal in a nice, cozy place would also please him. Community-minded, he might also enjoy going out with your mutual friends.
For her: Not really a classic romantic, the Aquarius woman has a curious mind. She'd love an intriguing book or album she's never heard before, or a fun electronic video game. The card you give doesn't have to be mushy, just sincere. If it plays music, even better. If you really want to prove your love, take her on a dream vacation to Hawaii!
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
For him: Turn the tables on this sensitive man and get him flowers for Valentine's Day -- perhaps his favorite lilies or orchids rather than the traditional red roses. He would also love making dinner together, each of you handling a different course, while drinking wine, laughing, and enjoying each other's company. And don't forget the heartfelt card.
For her: This woman wants to know how you feel about her, so a written note describing your feelings is essential. Then, something that would offer some quality time together -- like a day at the spa or a romantic weekend getaway -- would make this kitten purr. She is a classic romantic, so roses or another favorite bouquet of flowers will make her melt.
