There are so many different kinds of kissing — The Peck, The Eskimo, The Butterfly — and they all mean something different. If the guy you’re crushing on kisses you on your forehead, he thinks of you as more of a friend than anything romantic.
But it isn’t just the action of kissing, or the type of kiss; it’s the duration. If someone gives you quick kiss on the cheek, it can be them saying, “Hello,” but if their lips linger there a moment, it can mean they’re flirting with you.
We all have different ways we kiss, and whether we know it or not, our zodiac sign affects the way we kiss.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are great initiators, are charismatic and always keep things fresh. They’ll surprise attack you with their kisses out of nowhere, grab you and kiss you passionately. They aren’t tentative with their kissing, but when an Aries has kissed you, you’ll know it.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taureans are very focused, hardworking, and great at coming up with new ideas. When a Taurus kisses you, it involves ESP (Extra Sensory Passion). They’ll look at your face, inhale the smell of your perfume, touch your hair, and then when their lips make contact with yours, they’ll take in the taste.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis have a quick mind, are very versatile, and are great communicators. The Gemini will bombard you with butterfly kisses, but when you try to return them, they’ll run off with a smile. A Gemini has no problem telling you on how to kiss them, the way they want you to kiss them.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers live by their gut instincts, and care deeply about their family and friends. A Cancer will have a difficult time keeping their hands off you, as they want to show their love and desire for you by constantly kissing you. They’ll start with French kissing and get more heated from there.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are bold, brave, and impulsive. Since Leos love to be in the spotlight, they have no problem giving you a big, wet kiss in public. There’s no such thing as performance anxiety for a Leo; they know how to deliver the kinds of kisses that make you melt and curl your toes. They’ll give you the kind of kisses you want and need, and won’t give up until you’re screaming for more.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos aren’t perfectionists, but perfection is something they strive for. But the qualities that make them successful in their career — like attention to detail — make them good kissers. When a Virgo is kissing you, they’ll completely envelop you with their body (straddling your leg, embracing you in a hug), and then they’ll only kiss you long enough to keep you wanting more.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras love beauty and the arts. They have great social skills, but if you’re the object of their affection, they’ll keep shooting you seductive looks at an event or party. Libra will kiss you in private intensely and without being self-conscious.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
There’s a good reason that Scorpios are known as the zodiac’s most passionate sign. When they kiss, they don’t just kiss you on the mouth — they kiss every inch of your body with a variety of different kissing techniques. Is licking considered kissing? For a Scorpio it is.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is known for being the most exciting and appreciative lover, one who enjoys pleasing their partner. They’ll shower you with kisses and compliments if they sense you need that, or playfully wrestle you to the ground and cover you with kisses when you’re pinned.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are great problem solvers, are good at keeping secrets, and make wonderful partners and life-long friends. They sometimes can be late-bloomers but know they’ve done their research when it comes to kissing. They’ll try every trick in the book on you, often with great results. You’ll discover things (like getting kissed at the nape of your neck) that you never knew you liked.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Those of the Aquarius sign are unconventional, unorthodox, and love the arts. For the Aquarius person, it’s all about the art of the seduction, and they won’t just randomly kiss you. The Aquarius has to set the mood with the perfect music and lighting. They’ll start off slow with cautious kisses, but as their senses heighten their kisses will deepen and become all-consuming.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces people are old souls and are selfless to a fault. They’re known to be devoted lovers and friends. When a Pisces kisses you, they’ll pull you in closer and closer. Watch out though; Pisces can be teases and will bite, lick, and brush your lips until you can’t take it anymore.
