Your zodiac sign can say a lot about your personality. It impacts the kind of friend you are, the kind of partner you are, the way you work and the way you spend your time. So it should come as no surprise that your zodiac sign can also influence different types of kissing. Yes, the way you kiss. After all, your kissing style is a big part of how you express yourself. Some would even argue that we are the most honest about who we really are when we are being intimate with someone else, so the way you kiss is a honest glimpse into your personality, your values, your likes, your dislikes and your passion. Experts agree that your sign influences everything from your dating style to the way you connect with others and the way you act when it comes time to pucker up.
We know what you are wondering. So what does your zodiac sign say about the way YOU kiss? Let’s get down to the good stuff. While everyone is different, and in life we are all unique and no one-size-fits all applies to your love life, there are some patterns to look for. Here’s what you need to know different types of kissing based on your zodiac sign.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
Capricorns are ambitious, hard working, goal-oriented and organized, so when they kiss, it’s not an unplanned, sloppy smooch. They like to kiss just right—never too much tongue, never too relaxed, and never on a whim. If you are a Capricorn you are most likely picky about who you kiss, when you kiss and how you kiss, but when you do it, you commit to it, you like to be refined, and you leave them wanting more.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarius are notoriously open-minded and adventurous. In life and in love, they like to think outside the box and try new things, so when it comes to kissing, you aren’t afraid to make the first move and no one kisses quite like you.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Some people prefer quick pecks or short, passionate smooches in the heat of the moment. No a Pisces. Pisces prefer long-lasting kisses that are romantic and involve a lot of physical closeness. They’ll pull you in close to their bodies and embrace every moment of that kiss.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Aries can often be impulsive and fiery in their decisions, their actions and their relationships. Which is what makes them such passionate kissers. And it’s not just about how they kiss, an Aries will grab you and kiss you in the middle of the street and in front of strangers. They aren’t shy and they don’t over-think anything. They can be wild and adventurous, so kissing an Aries is fun and never boring.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Taurus are very sensitive to all of their senses, including smell, touch, sight etc. They won’t just kiss you; they’ll look at you and take in your scent as well. This sign is an earth sign, so they like to feel truly connected in everything they do, and they indulge in all aspects of a kiss. They like to cuddle and they kiss slowly—no impulsive, rushed or aggressive kissing if you’re a Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
If you’re a Gemini then you probably already know you’re a flirt. You like to have fun, you are curious, adventurous and playful. You don’t like to be boring, and your kissing style is not boring. Gemini are sexy and full of energy, and they are also great communicators so they don’t have any problem telling you if they want you to kiss them another way.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
While a Cancer can sometimes seem tough on the outside, they are actually really soft and sensitive on the inside, which you can see from the way they kiss. Intimate moments with a Cancer are a chance to see into their soul; they love to nurture and make you feel warm and comfortable. Cancers aren’t fickle or aggressive with their relationships or their kisses—they love deeply and kiss with warmth, passion and commitment.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Arguably the boldest of all the signs, a Leo can be impulsive when it comes to their love life and their kisses. They enjoy the spotlight, so you can expect a big, sexy kiss in public without a second thought. Leos are fun to be around and are sexy without even trying, so their kisses are full of desire, swagger and flirty fun.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
Virgo are compassionate, caring and very in tune with the people around them, so instead of being selfish with a kiss, they follow your lead and try to give you what you want and need. They are thoughtful and flexible, but they also strive for perfection, so expect a kiss that is tidy and focused on details.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
A Libra will be very romantic and very into the beauty of a kiss. It’s not just about how it feels, it’s also visually dramatic and gorgeous. Picture a movie star kiss, complete with a dip and passionate embrace. Libras are very focused on pleasing their partners and sweeping someone off their feet, so a kiss will be affectionate, romantic and special.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
It’s all about lust and seduction when it comes to a Scorpio kiss. Scorpios are passionate in all aspects of their lives, especially when it comes to intimacy. They tend to make the first move and be the dominant force in the kiss, and sometimes they can even be a bit aggressive (think a lip biting, pressed up against a wall kind of make out).
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Sagittarius can be adventurous and exotic, and they like to be playful when they kiss. They also are full of positive energy and just want to make you feel happy, so they’ll shower you with kisses and compliments. And if you’re a Sag, you probably already know that you always want more of what makes you feel good, so one kiss rarely cuts it.
