Seducing an Aries (March 21 – April 19)
When it comes to courtship, your Aries wants you to be bold and aggressive. Don’t ask permission for a kiss — just plant a breathtaking one as soon as the moment seizes you. The more forceful your approach, the better. Rams are also susceptible to compliments. These folks want to hear that they’re the sexiest person in the room. If you’ve just met an Aries, feel free to contradict them. Spirited debates act like aphrodisiacs on this sign.

Seducing a Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Slow and steady wins the race with Taurus. These folks want to savor the courtship phase of a relationship. Be sure to show up on the first date with a bouquet of flowers or some other beautiful token of your appreciation. Bulls love presents.

Nothing gets Taurus in the mood like a spicy joke.
If you’re a Taurus, you like to seduce people with soft words, encouraging caresses and generous gestures. Your knack for gift-giving is unparalleled. Having a velvet voice doesn’t hurt your chances, either.
Seducing a Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The fastest way to Gemini’s bedroom is through the brain. Ask this sign for a reading recommendation — Geminis love to be consulted about intellectual matters. If you’ve got specialized knowledge of a particular subject, be sure to bring it up. People born under the sign of the Twins are wildly attracted to experts — the more obscure your subject, the better. If Gemini mentions their latest hobby, be sure to ask for a crash course. Nothing gets this sign in the mood like showing off their know-how.
Seducing a Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
These Moon Children are notoriously soft-hearted. If you’d like to make your way into this sign’s bedroom, show off your sensitive side. Express an interest in charities, especially ones involving children. Cancers secretly love being babied, so it’s a great idea to fix this sign a home-cooked meal. Keep the lights low and the music soft … Cancer is very responsive to romantic atmospheres. If you’ve got your sights set on a female Crab, ask permission before you kiss her. If you’re dating a guy, make the first move and then apologize for being so bold.

Seducing a Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
If you want to seduce a Leo, focus on this sign like a laser. Compliment the way they dress, eat and breathe. Treat him or her to the best of everything, whether it’s the center table at the fanciest restaurant in town or the choicest spot on your picnic blanket. When the lights are turned low, run your fingers through the Lion’s mane. He or she will purr with delight. Murmur words of praise into his or her ear during foreplay. Your lovemaking will build to a beautiful crescendo.
If you’re a Lion, you’ve got a naturally seductive personality. It’s hard for people to resist your charms, especially when you lavish somebody with the royal treatment. You’ll give the object of your desire the best of everything until you hit your target.
Seducing a Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Cleanliness is definitely a virtue when seducing Virgo. Make sure that your sheets are freshly laundered before taking a tumble with this sign. It’s also a good idea to be impeccably groomed yourself. Nothing turns a Virgin on like the smell of French-milled soap. In fact, you may want to take a bath together as a prelude to lovemaking. If you’re having trouble even getting a date with Virgo, ask him or her to help organize your desk, proofread a letter or find your keys. This is a great way to break the ice with this service-oriented sign.
If you’re a Virgo, your seduction style is tasteful and understated. Anticipating a person’s needs yields impressive results. You’re the first one to help someone off with their coat, relieve them of heavy packages or bring a refreshing drink. Your conversational skills aren’t shabby, either.
Seducing a Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
When it comes to seducing sophisticated Libra, it’s best to summon the spirit of Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn.

Librans love music, so taking this sign to a concert would be a terrific prelude to lovemaking. It’s a wise idea to perfect your kissing technique before making the first move on Libra. This sign wants a lover with finesse.
As a Libra, seduction is second-nature. You melt hearts with your dazzling smile and dancing eyes. You’re also an excellent listener … which can be extremely seductive. If you ever want to take someone home, just asks what inspires them and then listen with rapt attention.
Seducing a Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
It may be challenging to seduce secretive Scorpio, since it’s hard to gauge this sign’s reactions. Don’t be fazed if your moves are met with an inscrutable smile … that’s just Scorpio’s own form of seduction. A good first move? Take this sign’s hand in a darkened movie theater and trace delicate patterns on the inside of his or her palm. Make love wordlessly and urgently, letting your body do all the communicating.
If you’re a Scorpio, you’re a master seducer. You love undressing people with your eyes. Most people respond favorably to your intense focus.

Seducing a Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Sagittarians are easily seduced through humor. Crack a few jokes, make a few pratfalls, and leave some funny voicemails if you’d like to get acquainted with the Archer’s bedroom.

Seducing a Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Dignified Capricorn can be quite intimidating on the sexual front, but rest assured that this sexy sign is worth seducing. A slow, steady approach works best with Goats. Limit your first encounter to a lingering kiss. Then the next time you see each other, caress Cappy’s back, neck and shoulders, applying firm, insistent pressure. Make a strategic retreat when Capricorn begs you to finish what you’ve started. Deep down inside, this sign knows that the best things in life are worth waiting for.
If you’re a Capricorn, you seduce others with your confidence. The assured way in which you order wine, discuss politics and reference movies can yield results. Quite often, people are scared to say “no” to you, just because you’re so masterful!
Seducing an Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Quirky Aquarius can be a tough nut to crack when it comes to sex. If you’d like to seduce this sign, try an unconventional approach. Claim that you’re doing research for a sex clinic and need their help with an experiment. Declare that, while you’re not interested in pursuing a physical relationship with Aquarius, you’re willing to make the sacrifice in the name of friendship. The more offbeat your manner, the more attracted Aquarius will be. All Water-bearers have a rebellious streak. Dare one to kiss you.
