CANCER: When it comes to feeling needed, you make others feel that for you. It’s because of how attentive you are to feelings and concerns. Once you help someone, they come back for more because you make them feel special.
LEO: Making people have two different feelings about you at the same time. They like you but they also don’t like you and this is what makes them stick around. It’s almost like a puzzle, almost everyone wants to figure you out.
LIBRA: The ability to make any environment comfortable and relaxed. Whoever is around you will feel like they can be themselves and you accept it.
ARIES: Strength to endure a certain activity like no one else can. It is not because you’re stable, it’s because of your courage and how much energy you have.
TAURUS: Patience is your most powerful trait. You could wait a long time to finally get what you want, especially if it’s worth waiting for.
AQUARIUS: Capability to motivate others to care and/or debate about a certain subject, even if it’s small or random, because of how much you talk about it and because of how deep and convincing you can be.
PISCES: Somehow without saying much you can get others to talk about their personal lives and open up easily which in turn makes them like you.
GEMINI: Blindside people. They know that they’re supposed to be mad at you but you somehow change the subject or use your “charm” to make them forget and move on.
VIRGO: Observation and detail. You excel at pointing out different angles and perspectives that most wouldn’t of begun to think about.
SCORPIO: I don’t know what it is but you don’t have to do anything and at least one person will somehow be drawn to you and want to be a long term partner or friend.
SAGITTARIUS: Make anyone smile or to lift the spirits of someone because of how forward and enjoyable you are.
CAPRICORN: Working is your fuel so you always progress in whatever field or job you take on and it doesn’t take long to do that.
Gemini: Witty and talkative. You may think they are always this way, but if they like you, you’ll see it in their eyes. They can be absolutely weird when talking to their crush. They let their guard down. They’ll try to treat you like just other friends if they don’t want to be too obvious about it, but still they’ll pay more attention to what you have to say. They can be touchy, similar to Leos, but more spontaneous. Be careful with Geminis, they look at love as an experience/adventure; they are most likely to lead someone on for the thrill of it. They’ll also be really supportive and encourage you to go after what you want. They want the best for you.
Cancer: Shy and so sweet. All of their friends are 100% aware that they like you. You can probably know more about how a cancer feels about you by observing how their friends act around you. They are not exactly coy, but more cautious; lots of soft eyes and smiles. They won’t hesitate to ask if you’re okay or how you’re doing, unless they doubt themselves. If you see them looking at you, they are trying to figure out what to say to you or a way to subtly interact with you. They fear rejection, so they are probably least likely to make the first move.
Aries: Lots of hugs. They will often challenge you, whether this is challenging your beliefs or trying to prove their worth by winning a game. They get jealous easily and may come off as harsh when they see you flirting with or giving attention to someone else. They will think about you more than they like to admit. They will want to be updated with what’s going on in your life, and will actually show interest in your routines/interactions with others. There is a good chance these guys will just tell you how they feel.
Taurus: They’ll ask for your opinions on things and will try to hold stimulating conversations with you. All of your quirks and bad habits will become cute to them. They will look at you like you are this special human being who must be protected at all costs. Sometimes they’ll make fun of you, but all good natured. You will consume their thoughts. They will compliment you on things they admire about you in an almost-manipulative way of letting you know who they want you to be. All earth signs are somewhat manipulative. Taurus’ are just so sweet when they like someone, please don’t hurt them, they constantly fear that once they open up, they’ll be misunderstood or rejected, so don’t be discouraged by a more reserved presence. This is why they want to know so much about you.
Virgo: They will challenge you, but not in the same way that Aries does. Virgos tend to display their more negative qualities (sometimes on accident) to see if you are worth their time. They tend to be very insecure, so they need to know that you will stand by them at their worst. They will certainly pick out your flaws if they like you and may be harder on you because they want you to be the best you that you can be. They may tag along with your friend group to be around you. They often misinterpret feelings so they may share the “hot and cold” nature that Capricorns have because they are paranoid. They’ll open up to you just a bit more than they would with others. They want to make sure you stimulate them intellectually before they get too serious, this is important to them.
Leo: They’ll probably flat out tell you that they like you. Everyone within earshot will know it. They get really touchy feely and will play games with you; footsies under the table. They will say some things and you’ll be like what the fuck are you talking about, but forgive them, it’s their way of being nervous, even if they don’t know it. They’ll want to be around you. They will make more eye contact than they typically would with other people. If they really like you, they’ll adopt this special “voice” which they will only talk to you in. It’s often softer, sweeter, and really irresistible. They can be SO protective (it’s adorable)!! They also try to impress you and it may come off as arrogant, but it’s actually so cute because they just want you to see how great they are.
Scorpio: If they give you any special attention at all, this is a good sign. Scorpios are typically indifferent to people who do not interest/benefit them in the slightest. Scorpios are known for their impulsive wit and charm, but can be a bit more awkward (in a cute way) and less witty around their crush. EYES, EYES, EYES. Expect intense eye contact and lots of “subtle” staring from a smitten Scorpio. They are very protective, sometimes even possessive over their crush. Their eyes will light up with curiosity or lust at the mention of you.
Libra: This is a toughie because Libras are generally very charming and likable people. A good way to determine whether they like you is by asking around- if a Libra likes you, they will never say no when asked by others if they like you (unless they have good reason). They will try to be around you frequently and will try to show you their best side. They will treat you differently than other people if they like you, so watch out for any soft voices or loving eyes that they save for only a special someone.
Aquarius: They will want to hang around you. They tend to be more reserved emotionally, but will mess around with you to cope. Like Gemini, they will encourage you to go after what they think is best for you. If you are currently interested in someone else, a crushing Aquarius will not be too fond of said person and try to convince you that you “deserve better.” They will not let conversations die. Aquarians don’t have the greatest attention span so they definitely admire you in some way if they hold conversations with you, especially over text. Lots of laughter too!! Lots of staring, they probably won’t even look away when you make eye contact with them. Actually, they may just laugh out loud. They are often more courteous of you than they are with others.
Sagittarius: They try extra hard to make you laugh. They can be very childish and just want you to see the adventure in everything. They will try to impress you with their random acquired skills, which can range from being able to identify every bird in sight to the capability of balancing a pencil on their nose for several minutes. Sometimes they stutter or are shyer around the person they like, which is a telltale because Sags are nearly always outgoing or at least projective of what’s going on with them. They will compliment you a lot. They will try to be what they think you want <—-Capricorns do this too, but they merely deduce your personality and accentuate the features they think you’ll appreciate. While Sags think they are doing what Capricorns do so well, they really need to find someone who will accept them for who they are.
Pisces: Think coy and giggly. They are the ultimate dreamers and will utterly want to share these dreams and desires with you. They can be pretty awkward, but it’s cute. They’ll try to look their best around you. They get a bit shy, but are almost always in a flirty mood; lots of poking and material stealing and cute doodles. They are the epitome of a “middle school crush” if you get what I mean. The boys tend to be this way more than the girls because sometimes the girls consider it childish. Sometimes. They are most likely to stalk you on social media. Pisces flirt immensely through technology, and are great at sending cute texts or messages. This is often because they stutter or withdraw in real life. If they are single and ready to mingle, you’ll know, with frequent sighs and several exclamations of “no one likes me” followed by insecure laughter. Basically, they’re cute.
Capricorn: They will be very hot and cold. One day, they can be outrageous and flirty and coy, but you can bet your life that they will go home and overthink it and the next day they will give their utmost effort to avoid you or seem indifferent towards you. This is because Capricorns have a superiority complex, and sometimes a crush makes them feel weak; they are afraid of getting hurt so they will never act too smitten for too long. This is why most Capricorns will not admit to their feelings until they are secure in the fact that you feel the same way. A Capricorn will also try to help you and give you advice, not because they think you are wrong or in need of actual help, but because they care about your well-being and want you to live the best life you can. They will try to impress you with their unique talents or philosophies. They can be very coy and charming. Intense eye contact (they honestly believe they can seduce you with their eyes). They are chivalrous regardless of gender; they love holding doors for their crush (like literally all of them do this). Side note: they will never forget a single thing you say or do. Ever.
Cancer: “I’m so sorry, sweetie. Wanna come make some brownies and listen to all our old emo music together?”
Aquarius: *shouting at the sky* “Hey, yo, aliens, when y’all gonna abduct me and take me as your sex slave? Beam me the F*CK up! Probe me, daddy!”
Pisces: “Hey, nice to meet you! I like Disney movies and heavy metal.”
Leo: “Hey, you. I’m speaking. Write this shit down.”
Virgo: “We can watch porn together, but don’t you dare touch me after you pee.”
Libra: “But… flirting is like, half of my personality.”
Scorpio: “If you tell anyone that I like the new Taylor Swift song, it will literally be the last time anyone ever hears from you again.”
Aries: “Fight me, btch. I’ll rip your spine out through your ass.”
Taurus: “I’mma go get food. My fine, Thicc™ ass ain’t gonna maintain itself.”
Gemini: “I cannot believe that being boring isn’t one of the seven deadly sins, to be honest.”
Sagittarius: “Y’all wanna get drunk and go on a 3:00am adventure to Waffle House?”
Capricorn: “I bleed ambition and piss excellence. Don’t fuck with me.”
Dear Aries: It doesn’t matter how dark times are, you are there for me. And I know you will always support me. You can make me happy like no one else can. You can say something that isn’t even funny and I have to laugh with you. I could talk all night with you. About anything. You are full of light, full of life. You deserve everything bright.
Dear Taurus: Even though I’ve never really been so close to you to say that, I want you to know that you’re worth it. You are beautiful, your smile helps people not to give up. So don’t give up on yourself. You’re strong and I know you smile through the pain, but it’s okay. We all go through that and I wanted to tell you that you’re not alone.
Virgo. Want someone to love you when you’re isolated. Someone IS there for you
Libra: Are wrong when you are. Don’t constantly blame others for actions that are partially are wholly yours
Aries: Care when someone’s crying even if you dont know what to do
Taurus: Don’t want them, and why, before you walk away
Gemini: Are sad when you’re feeling down. Let someone hold you
Cancer: Know you’re right when you are. Don’t let self doubt consume you
Leo: Are sorry when you did something wrong. Don’t let pride overtake you
Scorpio: Want to solve your problems. Don’t let anger affect your relationship
Saggitarius: Are busy instead of running off, hurting others, or you’ll have no one at the end
Capricorn: Don’t like someone when you don’t. Don’t be scared of confrontation. Stand up for yourself
Aquarius: Wanna sleep when you’ve been working too hard. Don’t kill yourself honey
Pisces: Are mad when you are. Don’t bottle up your feelings. People are dumb, people are selfish, let yourself be too sometimes
Cancer: Cute and caring. Buys you Starbucks every morning, gives you meaningful presents. All in all, they want the best for you and for you to be protected from the world. They plan fun dates.
Leo: Dominant half of the relationship and is calm and collected. They will playfully insult you and do expect random showers of affection. They will always be there and make sure that you’re alright.
Virgo: Loves physical contact and they will tell you they love you a lot but you will never get sick of hearing it. Gives you their jacket even when it’s 70 degrees and will cry if you cry.
Aries: Athletic but high maintenance. Expects you to ask them how their day went but they will be there with you through thick and thin.
Taurus: Clingy and feels bad if they ain’t there for you through thick and thins> They will pay for all the dates even if you resist. KINKY AF
Scorpio: Never runs out of things to talk about. Make sure that you’re well-fed and full of creative ideas. Count on them when you’re feeling down to hold you and reassure you that everything is fine.
Sagittarius: Popular but doesn’t give a damn and focuses on you and only you. You’re the center of their universe and no matter how busy they are, they will make time for you.
Capricorn: Quiet and mysterious and has a hard time opening up. They love their partner so much even if they don’t always show it and will do anything for them.
Aquarius: Plan all the dates and texts first. You will never get sick of them and there’s always something new to learn about them.
Pisces: Loud and outgoing and makes sure that you know they love you. Kind of a spazz tbh, but it’s funny and lovable. They can be clingy but they knwo when to live you alone.
Gemini: Really playful and will make you a better person. Be expected to be showered in random presents and facetime a lot. They are gentle and make sure that you smile but they can be moody.
Libra: Funny and sassy. Saves up money to bring you to cool food places and dates to the city. May come across as mean but deep inside they want the best for you.
CANCER // Pārijāta (Hindu) – Pārijāta was a princess who fell in love with the sun god, Surya. However, he left her for another. When he deserted her, the princess became hopeless and committed suicide. From her ashes grew a tree. Unable to stand the sight of the lover who broke her heart, the flowers only bloom at night under the eyes of the moon, and she sheds them like tear-drops before the sun rises.
TAURUS // Rose (Greek) – Chloris, the goddess of flowers, found one of her beautiful nymphs dead in the woods. She cried, and turned body into a flower. She asked her husband Zephyr, the wind, to blow the clouds away so Apollo could shower her in sunlight. Dionysus added nectar for fragrance, and Aphrodite added pure beauty, then named it for her son, Eros, and hailed her the “Queen of Flowers”.
GEMINI // Foxglove (Celtic) – Foxgloves from “Folks Glove”, as in fairy folk. Fairies would hide in the bell blossoms and wear them as petticoats, caps and gloves. If you pluck the foxglove, it angered them and they may play tricks in revenge! Fairies would give the flowers to foxes so they wouldn’t get caught raiding chicken coupes. With the magic gloves on, they could steal eggs without making a sound.
LEO // Sunflower (Greek) – The nymph Clythia was in love with the God of the Sun, Apollo, but he shunned her and courted a princess. Jealous Clythia told the king who, furious at the princess, buried her alive. Saddened, Apollo went back to heavens without a word. She lay on the ground distraught for nine days, watching him, hoping for a single glance. Clythia wasted away and became a flower, whose petals still follow his chariot across the sky each day, waiting for forgiveness.
VIRGO // Aster (Greek) – When the god Jupiter decided to flood the earth to destroy the men constantly at war, the goddess Astraea was so upset she asked to be turned into a star. Her wish was granted, but when the flood waters receded she wept for the loss of lives. As her tears turned to stardust and fell to earth, the beautiful aster flower sprung wherever they landed.
ARIES // Amaryllis (Greek) – A love struck maiden longed for the handsome Alteo, but he was cold to her. In a desperate gesture, she pierced her heart with a golden arrow and walked to visit him every day. On the thirteenth day, beautiful scarlet flowers bloomed along the path from every drop of her blood. Alteo fell in love with her, and her heart was healed.
LIBRA // Anemone (Greek) – Chloris, the goddess of flowers, was married to Zephyr, the god of the west wind. Zephyr fell in love with a beautiful nymph that served Chloris named Anemone. Jealous and angry, the goddess banished her to keep them apart, and Anemone died of a broken heart. Zephyr resurrected her as a flower. She withers every winter but returns every spring to greet Zephyr with open petals.
SCORPIO // Peony (Chinese) – Queen Wu was disheartened to see only winter jasmine in her garden. She wrote a poem to the goddess of flowers asking her to make everything bloom that night instead of waiting for spring. The next morning, all flowers flourished except the peony, which refused to bloom out of season. She was offended and banished it. Once gone, it bloomed beautifully. Furious, she ordered it to be burned – however the next year, the burnt peony grew back. With black petals.
SAGITTARIUS // Pa’u-o-Hi’iaka (Hawaiian) – When Hi’iaka, the goddess of island nature, was a baby her older sister, the Volcano goddess Pele, left her on the beach while she went fishing.

Hi’iaka now wears them as a skirt to protect her on adventures and in the forests.
CAPRICORN // Aconite (Greek) – As one of his twelve labors, the hero Hercules was sent to fetch the three-headed dog Cerberus from the underworld. With the help of Persephone, he was successful. The spittle of the beast dripped upon the rocky earth, and from it sprang the first aconite plant. The purple wolfsbane flowers are elegant, but it’s leaves and roots are deathly poisonous.
AQUARIUS // Iris (Greek) – The goddess Iris would bring messages to the gods across the sky, appearing to mortals as a rainbow. She acted as the link between the heavens and earth, where she left irises of many colors, the three upright petals symbolizing hope, valor, and wisdom. If purple Irises were planted over the graves of women, it would summon the Goddess, who would guide the dead in their journey.
PISCES // Water Lily (Brazilian) – When the moon goddess, Jaci, hid behind the mountains, she’d take beautiful girls with her and turn them into stars. Naiá, a girl who loved the goddess, dreamt of becoming a star, so she roamed the mountains every night. While resting by the lake, she saw the moon’s reflection, dove into the water and drowned. To reward Naiá for her sacrifice, Jaci turned her into a star different from all the others – the star of the waters.
