The Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most To Least Flirty

Who doesn't enjoy a little flirting? It can be one of the most exciting parts of dating, and it can also be a fun way to get to know someone better. That said, it isn't just about having fun. Flirting can also hint at how compatible you are with a potential partner, as well as impact the long-term success of relationships. Even though you may think about being flirty as a way to keep things interesting during the initial stages of dating, it can also be vital for maintaining spice and excitement in a relationship throughout the years. For example, If flirting is all about physical touch for you, and your partner connects in a more cerebral way, you might have to work harder to feel connected than if you shared a similar flirting style.


Not only that, but zodiac signs and the elements to which they're tied (fire, earth, air, and water) affect our personalities in ways we may not even fully understand. It should be no surprise then that people of each zodiac sign flirt differently. Some signs may flirt without noticing they're doing it, while others may take time to warm up to someone, even if they're already interested in them. Of course, signs outside of our main sign — the sun sign — factor into this, but our sun sign is our most prominent one, so it dictates who we are at our cores. Now, learning zodiac flirting styles can clue you into how you connect with others and help you better read a potential partner and their intentions.


1. Gemini (May 20 to June 21)

Ranking as the top flirt, the effervescent air sign Gemini is a pro at building rapport quickly with many different types of people. Since a Gemini is a natural talker with a sparkly personality it should be no surprise that this sparkle could quickly lead to a spark with whoever they are talking to. Not only will a Gemini be able to dazzle you with their words and knowledge, but they're also great at whispering sweet nothings and at physical seduction. Reading others and communicating with them effectively is usually easy for them, so a Gemini will find a way to connect that appeals directly to you, whether that means conversations that last for hours, subtle physical touch, or both. It's generally a win-win situation for people who belong to this sign.


With all these things combined, a Gemini may be a force to be reckoned with if they want to seduce you. They can often render themselves irresistible, so it's a good idea not to take everything they say too seriously at first. If you want to get Gemini's attention and move past surface-level flirting, you may need to get creative. Conversations about unorthodox and controversial topics can be a great way to start. Along with that, making sure you are a little unpredictable in your communication habits from time to time may help keep them on their toes. 

2. Leo (July 23 to August 22)

A Leo loves the spotlight and relishes compliments, whether they are getting them or giving them. This fire sign's natural charm may cause them to cross over into flirtatious behavior without thinking about it. Leo is energetic and wants life to feel like an ongoing party, so they might start flirting with you just for fun. Because they live for the spotlight, a hallmark of Leo's style is theatrics, so expect them to make grand romantic gestures or dazzle you with a pinch of drama in their attitude from time to time. They might even sing you a love song or sweep you into an impromptu dance in the middle of the grocery store.


While a Leo may be a frequent flirt, they can also be very loyal to those they care about. Once you're in their inner circle, they will defend you fiercely. If a Leo knows they have you in their corner, they won't want you to leave their side. Giving Leo your full attention and letting them revel in the spotlight is a great way to make them feel adored and let them shine.

3. Aries (March 2 to April 19)

The first of the zodiac signs, the fire sign Aries is often passionate and extroverted. As natural leaders, they'll want to take the lead in a relationship, and that includes flirting. An Aries won't shy away from overt flirtation or making a bold first move. That doesn't mean, though, that they are impulsive. Aries simply are not afraid to go after what they want. Milestones hold special importance for Aries, so you can count on them making a big deal out of things like a first kiss, for example. They also thrive on competition, so be ready to get some banter going or challenge them at one of their favorite games. 


If Aries is interested in you, it will be obvious. Not only will they tell you what they think, but they'll pack on plenty of physical touch to back it up. You won't be waiting around for texts from Aries or wondering what they are thinking. That said, their typically quick pace and direct delivery could seem overwhelming to some. If you can't keep up with an Aries' velocity, things may fizzle quickly. If you can keep pace, though, get ready for the ride of your life.

4. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Often thought of as one of the most sexual signs in the zodiac, a Scorpio is a pro at flirtation and seduction. However, like other water signs, they can be careful about who they give their attention. A Scorpio won't waste their time on just anyone, so if a Scorpio is flirting with you they likely thought about it for a while first. Scorpio knows how to make themselves downright mesmerizing when they feel like it, and if they want to get your attention, they will do whatever it takes to get and keep it.


This level of determination isn't just flattering it can be completely spellbinding, but it can come with some possessiveness, too. If you flirt with a Scorpio, remember that they tend to be prone to jealousy. Leading them on if you are not interested may not be beneficial for either one of you. If you want to get a Scorpio's attention, your best bet is to lay low. A Scorpio likes to feel a sense of mystery and longing as they lure you in, so putting yourself out there too much could be off-putting for them. The occasional subtle and seductive glance is often all you need to get a Scorpio obsessing over you. 

5. Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)

Sagittarius tends to have a wild streak and likes to have fun, which may include striking up a random flirtation. Because Sagittarius is continually on the hunt for new knowledge and experiences, they may not always be predictable, but if they like you, they won't be shy about letting you know. With this fire sign's healthy sense of humor, you can count on sharing lots of laughs, even if Sagittarius is a little too blunt in their delivery sometimes.


Having a natural zest for adventure, a Sagittarius will find new and unexpected ways to get your attention and show you they care, whether it is a surprise date or flirty texts all through the night. However, they can lose interest quickly, as well. If you don't reciprocate a Sagittarius interest they may take their attention elsewhere. That doesn't mean it has to be hard to hold their interest, though. As long as you know how to let your rebellious streak show from time to time, a Sagittarius will see that you know how to have fun.

6. Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Cancers are big romantics that live for love, but that doesn't mean they are good at making their feelings known. Although they can be warm and charming, these water signs are more likely to hint at their interest with something like slightly longer than usual eye contact or a compliment on your outfit than to make an obvious move. Naturally nurturing, Cancers will find lots of sweet ways to show you that they care, like mushy good morning texts or gifts of your favorite candy bar, after you've established your interest.


To bond with Cancer, you'll have to show your vulnerable side, so plan for a quiet night in rather than a bustling party if you want to make a true connection. After that, Cancer will be much more likely to open up in return. If you're wondering if a Cancer is interested in you, tune in closely to their attitude and look for subtle signs of change in their mood. Talking to a Cancer about things that matter to them and showing them that you respect their feelings can be a great way to help a budding romance fully blossom.

7. Libra (September 23 to October 22)

While flirting comes to Libras naturally, it may be hard to tell if they are actually flirting or just being extra friendly. The truth is, these air signs may not even know themselves. Libras are known to put others' interests ahead of their own, which could potentially include flirting just to be nice. Because Libras want everyone around them to like them and feel comfortable, they can end up saying and doing things they don't always mean. Even though this may seem insincere to some, it generally comes from a place of wanting to create harmony in their world.


Libras can be easy to flirt with on a superficial level, but if you want to see if their interest goes deeper, you will need to be conscious of your pace. Going with the flow and giving a Libra space can help them feel more comfortable as they make up their mind. Libras naturally resonate with all things beautiful, so if you want to get their attention going to a stylish new restaurant or taking a long scenic walk with them can be great ideas. Afterward, take a step back and give them some breathing room so they don't feel smothered.

8. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Intelligent and unique, Aquarius love their freedom and tend to live in their head. They like to mull theories and consider the possibilities, including when it comes to dating. Naturally intuitive and talkative, air sign Aquarius has no issue chatting you up or the person next to you either. For this reason, it may not be easy to figure out what an Aquarius is thinking. Also, because Aquarius could just as easily spend an hour thinking about their new favorite book as they could making conversation, they may seem aloof, even if they are interested.


If you want to get closer to an Aquarius and find out what is going on inside their head, the key is curiosity. Aquarius is often endlessly curious about the world around them, whether it involves literature, science, or simply socializing with others from different walks of life. Showing them that you not only have interests but that you appreciate theirs, too can help them see that you value their ideas and are just as engaged with all the possibilities the world has to offer as they are. 

9. Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

In touch with pleasure and sensuality, Taurus can be giving and romantic. As an earth sign, it should be no surprise that Taurus is grounded, even when it comes to romance. While you may appreciate a Taurus's relaxed approach to life you might find yourself frustrated with this pace when it comes to flirting. A Taurus is not afraid to show interest, but they tend to take their sweet time to do it unless they have a rival. Nothing will inspire the bull to rear its horns like a competitor.


If you want to flirt with a Taurus, be prepared to be patient, as the sometimes stubborn and picky bull does not like to be rushed. However, you should also understand that if you are willing to wait and look past any of their initial gruffness, a Taurus will be a sweet and supportive partner that loves to show you they care through kindness, physical affection, and gifts. They will make it their personal goal to give you the best and make you smile.

10. Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

Deep connection, romance, and love are a meaningful part of Pisces' life. Even so, this water sign can be shy, especially if they have been burned in love before. A Pisces might spend their days daydreaming about you, but you would never know it. One good indicator that a Pisces is interested in you is that they seem a little quieter around you than others, or seem particularly nervous when you are nearby.


Pisces can be hard to read sometimes, as they have a tendency to mold their personality to whoever they are with at the moment. Because Pisces naturally happens to be inward-looking, you will probably have to be the one to strike up a conversation. Being confident and sincere is your best bet because insightful Pisces will likely see right through fakery and bravado, and they won't be impressed. Once Pisces feels comfortable with you, be prepared for some fairy tale romance. A Pisces loves a grand romantic gesture, like a poem written just for them or a candle-lit dinner. When flirting with a Pisces, don't be afraid to let your most romantic dreams unfurl, even if they seem cheesy. Chances are it's just what they've been waiting for.


11. Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Driven by order and organization, earth sign Virgos tend to keep their emotions in check, meaning that things like flirting are not their forte. They also don't like to waste time on things that don't make logical sense to them. Beyond that, a Virgo may use flirting as a tool to sus out whether you are compatible. This means that Virgos might view getting flirty as a means to an end rather than something to do simply for enjoyment.


A Virgo can be great relationship material, as they can be a stable and trustworthy partner, but they may not show any signs of romantic interest right away, even if they like you. Their flirting style may even come off as sarcastic and dry to some. That said, a Virgo will often go to great lengths to get to know and understand you, so if Virgo starts asking you lots of questions about yourself, they may just be flirting. If you want to connect with a Virgo, then be ready for conversations that help them learn more about you and what your common ground with them is.

12. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

Ambitious and focused, earth sign Capricorns don't usually make much room for their emotions or for displaying them, either. While Capricorns can be tender and devoted partners, it can take a while to get to know one well, and they will probably not be the ones starting a conversation unless they see you being a serious partner. If that is the case, you can count on a Capricorn pursuing you very directly and being clear about their intentions.


Even though a Capricorn can be selective when choosing partners, once they have decided they like you, they can be super straightforward about flirting. Just because a Capricorn doesn't seem emotional on the outside doesn't mean that those feelings aren't there. Physical touch, meaningful gifts, and affirmations of love are all part of a Capricorn's flirting repertoire under the right circumstances. If you're trying to get their attention, know that you may need to be patient. Conversations about goals and aspirations can be a great way to pique their interest.
