How to Make a Good First Impression on Every Zodiac Sign

It's said that first impressions are everything, but sticking the landing is a lot easier said than done.

Since you can't always tell what a person will respond to at first glance, it can help to use astrology to point you in the right direction. Here's how to make a good first impression on anyone, based on their zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Be Fearless

Aries doesn't back down from anything, and you'll instantly gain their respect if you can do the same. If you want to impress them, go after what you want, even if it scares you a little bit. Take a stand and step up to whatever challenges lie ahead of you, and unless Aries sees you as their competition, chances are, you'll have an instant ally.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Deliver on Your Promises

Taurus is the most dependable sign of the zodiac, and is grounded even by earth sign standards. If you can show that you're a responsible person who says you'll do something, and then you actually make good on your word, they'll appreciate your sense of responsibility and know you're someone they can rely on. After all, they can't do everything themselves.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Make Everyone Welcome

Gemini is the zodiac's social butterfly, with the desire to befriend pretty much everyone they meet. They don't have time for people who act as gatekeepers or leave certain people out because they're not cool or well-liked enough. The more open you are with everyone, and willing you are to make them feel welcome, the more Gemini will accept everything about you.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Show Vulnerability

Cancer is well-known for being the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, even if they sometimes try to keep those emotions to themselves. If you can be vulnerable with them, openly sharing your feelings in an authentic way, you'll help them to break out of their shells and express themselves as well. This emotional candor can help you forge an instant bond with them.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Charm Them

With attention-loving Leo, flattery will get you everywhere. Leo is the sun that lights up every room, and the more you can shine the spotlight back at them, the more they'll be drawn to you. At the same time, you want to show them just how charming and affable you are, so that they understand that you can keep up. Before long, they just might reflect half of that attention right back at you.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Plan Ahead

Perfectionist Virgos can't stand a mess, and they will feel you're their kindred spirit the second you show your knack for getting organized and planning ahead. They thrive on routines and schedules, and if you can work with them to create well-formed strategies for attacking a problem, they'll want you by their side the next time they need help with a solution.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Be Unflinchingly Kind

Libras are a peace-making sign, with a tendency to avoid conflict at all costs. They just want to make people happy, so if you can radiate kindness, they'll be fast to recognize it. And if a conflict comes along and you're able to mediate it and get to a result where both sides are happy, chances are that balance-loving Libra will want you around pretty much 24/7.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Keep Your Cool

Scorpios can be tough to crack, but sometimes the secret to getting their attention is to make it seem like you don't want their attention at all. Keep things casual and don't be too pushy with them. The more of a mystery you are (and the more unattainable you seem), the more they'll be captivated by you. Keep your cool, and you just might make a loyal and lasting friend to Scorpio.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Be Willing to Try Things

Sagittarius is the zodiac's adventurous explorer, whether that means traveling the world, being a bit of a daredevil, or simply sampling exotic cuisines. Sag prefers not to be held back, but if you're up for anything, they'll quickly see you as a person who can be their partner in their next big journey. Your bravery might even take their escapades to new heights.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Modestly Share Your Accomplishments

Hard-working Capricorn has achieved a lot in their life, and they're impressed by those who've also put in the work and made things happen. Of course, with Cap, there's a fine line between being truly impressive and being far too boastful of your accomplishments. Take pride in what you've done without running your mouth off, and Capricorn will see you as someone who can finish the job.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Dare to Be Uncool

Aquarius is the most independent sign of the zodiac. While they'll always listen to others, they're not too heavily swayed by their opinions, and in the end, they make decisions for themselves. They value people who don't act or think a certain way just because it's expected of them, and if you openly defy conventions and refuse to fit in just for the sake of it, Aquarius will take notice.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Share Your Loftiest Dreams

No sign is dreamier or more creative than Pisces, but as they get lost in their daydreams, they can sometimes feel like the rest of the world is passing them by. As others focus on efficiency and productivity, they continue to value concepts and emotions. If you're not afraid to slow down with them and share your wildest ideas, they'll appreciate that you're on the same wavelength—and just might have the creative input you needed to make them great.
