How Each Zodiac Sign Wants To Be Kissed

How Each Zodiac Sign Wants To Be Kissed


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

A Cancer needs a kiss to be romantic for it to be considered a good kiss. It’s not the volatile, passionate kiss of a Gemini, but it is one where you feel passionate about the other person. Make the setting romantic: good lighting, candles, music — and just be alone and distraction free so you can focus on each other.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

A Capricorn wants a kiss that hits all the right checkboxes. It should be at the end of a dinner and movie date, you should both be well dressed and smelling good — it should look like a kiss in a rom com, basically. Don’t get overly passionate or messy, this should be a conventionally perfect kiss they can tell their friends about.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Geminis want to be overwhelmed with passion. It doesn’t even really matter if you’re skilled at what you’re doing, as long as you act like you’re really into it you’ll blow them away. Put your hands on their face, in their hair — pull them close, make little mini-moans of pleasure. Make the kiss something you both can get swept up in.


(January 21st to February 18th)

A good kiss for an Aquarius is passionate, but not emotional. It’s a fulfillment of primal desire, but not necessarily an emotionally intimate experience. Try to turn your brain off and give into whatever your body feels like it naturally wants to do. Don’t hold their face or be overly romantic, focus on the physical connection.

(November 23rd to December 21st)

A good kiss for a Sagittarius needs to be playful and fun. Don’t be monotonous and do the same thing over and over. Explore their body, kiss different parts of them, pause to smile or laugh or make a joke. Don’t make the mood too heavy or serious.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

A Virgo’s perfect kiss is by the book vs. experimental. Impress them with technical skill and effort. Nothing is sexier to a Virgo than effort.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Making a Leo happy while kissing them means making them feel like a star. When you pull apart, compliment their kissing style.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

A kiss for a Libra is an excuse to go on a fact-finding mission about how you feel about them. When you kiss your Libra, you should use it to communicate how much you care about them. Use your hands to gently caress them during the fact, be sweet or passionate — or whatever your feelings currently are — as long as it’s not perfunctory and lukewarm.


(March 21st to April 19th)

In order for an Aries to consider a kiss good, it needs to be adventurous. The worst sin here, is to be boring. Try something new — mix it up between deep kisses and playful pecks, kiss their neck or ear and then switch to their mouth. Keep things feeling fun and new.


(April 20th to May 21st)

Taurus is a sensual sign. People born under this sign love physical pleasure in it’s many forms. Try to stimulate as many of their senses as you can while kissing them. Use your hands to play with their hair, your mouth to kiss them (duh), and make little noises of appreciation to bring their sense of hearing into it.


(February 19th to March 20th)

A good kiss for a Pisces is all about the lead up. The night should be romantic and old-fashioned: set the mood with a great meal and some good music. Take your time when kissing a Pisces, it’s not a race and it doesn’t necessarily have to lead anywhere. Work on creating a kiss you’ll both enjoy in the moment.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Kissing a Scorpio is like fighting with a Scorpio: intense, passionate — and about the fun they have doing it, not about what happens next. It’s a fiery experience that is unlike kissing any other sign. Let your Scorpio take the lead, they’ll be more than happy to show you what they want. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
