How Much Effort Your Boyfriend Will Put Into Valentine's Day, Based on His Zodiac Sign

With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, you might be wondering whether your boyfriend has something elaborate planned or will completely forget about the holiday altogether.

While astrology is far from a science, it just might be able to give you a little bit of insight into how things will go. Keep reading to find out how much effort your boyfriend will put into the day, based on his zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries doesn't tend to be the best planner when it comes to Valentine's Day. They're always up to something, so time can quickly slip away from them, and by the time Feb. 14 rolls around, they're often completely unprepared. However, this doesn't mean your V-Day plans are completely shot. Aries are the most spontaneous of the zodiac signs, so even if he forgets until the last possible second, he'll be able to cobble together something unique and memorable before the day is through.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is known for their dependability, so rest assured that your boyfriend won't forget to do something for you on Valentine's Day. Even more, they tend to be drawn to elegant, fine things, so there's a good chance that you'll be receiving a slightly pricey gift on the special day. While you can't rely on it being exactly what you wanted (he'll go for something that catches his eye), it's the thought that really counts.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini will probably have something planned for Feb. 14, but if you wanted some quiet one-on-one time with your BF, you might be slightly disappointed. He's likely a social butterfly who thinks the more, the merrier—even if it is the most romantic day of the year. If you're close to other couples, you might have an amazing night. If not, try to enjoy the group date setting as much as you can.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is a sentimental and sensitive sign, so you can expect that they'll have something sweet planned out this Valentine's Day. Chances are that they've thought a lot about what to get you, and it's possible that they've had a lovey-dovey gift picked out for months. It may not be one of the biggest or more elaborate gifts you've ever gotten, but it'll definitely be a special one.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Leo is not a sign marked by subtlety, and when it comes to Valentine's Day, nothing about the way they celebrate is small. It's likely that your boyfriend is all about going big or going home, and he's probably going to do everything he can to make a spectacle out of the situation. If you love big, romantic gestures, you just might get swept off your feet—but if you're embarrassed by that kind of thing, maybe you should let them know beforehand.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)

Virgo is a planner and a perfectionist, so that will likely extend to their Valentine's plans. He may not always be the best at showing it, but your boyfriend is probably the poetic type and has been agonizing over the details of V-Day for weeks. He'll probably want it to be picture-perfect and stress out over the most insignificant aspects, so try to enjoy every moment.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)

Libra is symbolized by a pair of scales because the sign cares so much about balance, so expect to be involved in all of your boyfriend's Valentine's Day planning. He likes things to be equal, so he'll ask you about all of the details before he makes any decisions because he wants you both to be on the same page. Don't afraid to speak up about what you want to do on the big day, because everything you say will probably be taken into account.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Scorpio can be so mysterious. You never quite know what your boyfriend is up to, and you might start to get the feeling that he has absolutely nothing planned for Feb. 14. While there's a chance that this will be exactly the case, the sign is also known for being full of surprises, and you might discover at the last second that they've actually devised something totally magical—on the condition that you tell no one about it.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Positive, adventurous Sagittarius often thinks that being prepared can take all of the fun out of a situation, which is why they're not typically big planners. Your boyfriend wants to do something nice for Valentine's Day, but they don't think they'll have any fun if it's too rehearsed or he knows what everything will be ahead of time. If you don't like that, try getting involved in the planning early. If you're fine with a surprise, let him take you on a last-minute whirlwind escapade.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

There's no way that hardworking Capricorn will forget to do something for you on Valentine's Day. Your boyfriend knows how to think ahead and schedule out his time so that there's no room for error, and he's not one to let things fall between the cracks. It's likely that he'll gift you with something sweet, but yet totally practical, on the big day. After all, he's not into excess and unneeded things.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Aquarius can be a pretty complicated sign. On one hand, your boyfriend can be too independent and freedom-loving to be very much into Valentine's Day. On the other, they may exhibit some of the sign's more altruistic traits and be excited to shower you with gifts. You're best off communicating with them so you know where to set your expectations and avoid disappointment.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Of all of the zodiac signs, Pisces is the most likely to forget entirely about Valentine's Day. It's not that your boyfriend doesn't care—it's just that he's off in his own imagination and he sometimes has trouble keeping on top of things. But that doesn't mean that you have to lose hope entirely. Pisces is also artistic and dreamy, so as soon as he realizes his mistake, he'll be able to pull off something creative and heartfelt for you out of thin air.
