Zodiac all round

Aries Male

Are you in love with an Aries man? You`ve got quite a macho man on your hands! Ruled by Mars, the hot, red, active planet, the Aries man is known as the "warrior." Fearless and brave, active and entrepreneurial, he is eager for new experiences. Your man is never ever boring!

Your Challenge
To get his attention away from his constant business wheelings and dealings, and to cater to his substantial physical needs.

How To Handle Him
If this is your first date with an Aries, choose something daring to do. Aries, the lover of risk and adventure, is apt to enjoy activities with you that could include hang gliding, bungee jumping or car racing. The Aries man`s credo is he`ll try anything once. Use this to turn his mind away from everyday business matters and focus on you.

Being such a testosterone-charged and masculine sign, Aries needs a regular, highly active sex life. He is apt to be aggressive and spontaneous, and this is one man who likes to take the lead. At the same time, the Aries man is highly protective of his lover, being quite willing to fight (literally or figuratively) for her, and this is a big part of his appeal. Be gentle with this ego, though. If you`re not "in the mood" he might take the slightest rejection quite hard.

Aries likes a challenge, so you could tease him a bit when he starts getting bossy, keeping what he wants out of reach until the end of the pursuit. If trying to win an argument, the smart partner of an Aries man will subtly convince him that her ideas are really his ideas. Some Aries men have a roving eye, which is not an attractive quality, so to keep him playing in his own back yard, keep your body sleek, your lingerie sexy (a few skimpy pieces in his favorite color, red, would be a good idea) and the lights low (candlelight is perfect--Aries rules fire). Most of all, keep him guessing because he loves the thrill of the chase.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Want to surprise him? Cook him a spicy dinner, perhaps something Tex Mex--or--just tease him by putting a jalapeno pepper in your mouth and dare him to bite it gently (a la 9 1/2 Weeks). Then alternate sweet flavors with spicy (Aries rules spicy flavors). That`s a way to get his attention!

In terms of gifts, the Aries man likes an experience rather than something tangible. You might buy tickets to a boxing match or an exciting basketball game where he can get all worked up and scream his lungs out--all the better to get his lusty self in bed later that evening.

Aries Female

Love an Aries woman? She`s modern all the way, full of spunk and drive. You will likely find her running her own business, or heading up a division in her company, for Aries is the sign that rules entrepreneurial ventures. She is a woman of strength, has well-formed and intelligent opinions, and part of her charm is that she is so thoroughly independent and self-reliant. Aries is a fire sign and therefore quite imaginative, born to lead rather than to follow.

Your Challenge
To keep up with her, you`ve got to think of some original things to do together--the "same old, same old" will never rate with her.

How To Handle Her
In bed, the Aries woman will often enjoy initiating the lovemaking, much to your delight. Allow her that pleasure and enjoy the fireworks. Sexually, she will be creative and even humorous, and her sense of adventure will lead her to try many things.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy
Take her to an amusement park and try out the fastest, scariest rides together--she`ll be all the more passionate later. If you are giving her perfume, choose a fragrance that has depth and character--it could have a hint of spice or be a new, modern blen d. (One thing is certain, your grandmother`s sweet rose or lily of the valley just isn`t her style). Another idea would be to give her a gift certificate for a new hairstyle by a famous hairdresser she`s read about in her favorite fashion magazine. A fine imported hairbrush would be a good gift idea too. Aries rules the head, and a bad hair day is no joke for our girl. Having her hair just right gives her increased self confidence, and by giving her a chic new look, she`s apt to be delighted. Be prepared for her open demonstrations of her love for you! If you would rather choose something for her that is a bit more sexy, get her a short satin wrap robe with matching demi-bra and tiny thong panties, in her favorite color, bright red.

An Aries girl loves uniforms, so let her see you in your Navy dress whites the next time you call on her. If you don`t have an "Officer and an Gentleman" uniform around, any other uniform will do. Do you have a friend who is a UPS or FedEx delivery man? Y ou are in luck--borrow his uniform and pretend to be a delivery man. This will really ring her bell! Take note all "suits": every Aries woman looks forward to those sexy, well-muscled UPS guys, even when they`re dumping more work for them to do on the counter! Your working-class stud attire could be a fantasy-come-true.

If you want to be late for work and get the bathroom all steamy, try this: when you`re shaving one morning, stand at the sink completely nude, with the water running, and your face all lathered up with shaving cream. As you shave, be completely oblivious to her staring at you and just talk naturally with her about everyday matters--the more mundane the better. For example, ask, "Shall I pick up the Dijon mustard after I get the stuff from the dry cleaner?" Shave your face slowly--and wait for her reaction . Aries rules sharp instruments, so watching you wield your razor in such a masterful fashion will send her temperature rising--and could be start the start of a wonderful day for you!

Taurus Male

The Taurus man loves creature comforts. He is sensuous, tactile, giving, practical and stable. When a Taurus man falls in love it is forever, because Taurus guys aren`t wanderers. One of the sexiest characteristics of a Taurus man is his wonderfully sexy, deep voice. Taurus rules the throat, and many Taurus are well known singers.

Your Challenge
Taurus men often settle into ruts and aren`t known to be too flexible. You`ll want to coax him into trying sharing new experiences and considering your point of view at decision-making time. Some Tauruses can be very jealous of anyone else you may be dating, so you`ll have to keep an eye out for that too.

How To Handle Him
When this man says, "Be mine!" he means it quite literally, for this is a possessive sign. While this may seem charming on the outset, it can get a bit annoying. Deal with this by being a little flirtatious around other guys, but not to the extent that he thinks you would really dump him for someone else. Just tease him a little and reassure him that he is your number one man, and his passion will burn even brighter for you. Feeling secure is important to Taurus, and most of their decisions are based upon how he can increase this feeling. Taurus likes routine (hard to believe anyone does, but it is true.) While he is not a sign known for flexibility, his steadfastness and reliability will more than compensate, and you will find it comforting. So, don`t expect your Taurus lover to understand when plans change at the last minute. He has difficulty turning on a dime and this is something you will simply have to accept. And if you want to have any influence his thinking, be sure to get your ide as across in early during his long decision-making process, before he becomes "set." Taurus can be quite stubborn!

Taurus Female

The Taurus woman is feminine, soft and highly flowers. Be prepared to plunk down major money for a large bouquet of rare blooms. Don`t try to get away with something cheap and small--you`ll loose points. Original flowers to try would be white and purple lilacs, which are as fragrant as they are beautiful, and send them to her in an expensive crystal vase. (A Taurus knows quality when she sees it, and she adores objects of beauty. Every time she uses the vase you gave her, she will think of you.)

Another clever tactic would be to find out the name of her favorite scent. Most Taurus women have an entire arsenal of perfumes, one to suit every mood, and she uses her stash to seduce her chosen male with skill and subtlety. Taurus rules the throat, so a choker of pearls or other stones would go over well too. Princess Di has popularized the choker. This was not surprising since she had Venus in Taurus. This sign likes almost any kind of gem, as long as it is precious and refined, so certainly there must be something that strikes your eye at the jeweler`s. If you can`t afford to get her jewelry, then try for a fine silk or cashmere scarf. She is prone to sore throats and you`ll want to be sure she stays cozy warm in the winter.

Finally, the influence of Venus gives the Taurus woman a rounded silhouette, perfect "material" for a WonderBra. If you know her well, by all means buy her a selection of this type of bra in various pretty colors, then talk her into giving you a fashion s how. Since the media keeps telling women who have curves (as most Taurus women do) that they are less-than-ideal, you`ll need to counteract that notion. Keep reassuring her that you adore her real-woman curves and that the waif look was never one that turned you on.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy
Taurus men love the arts, so a Saturday spent poking through art galleries in Soho with a grand dinner at a fine restaurant later would be a perfect day. (Taurus can quite a gourmet, so make the restaurant special.) Taurus is a sensuous and cultured sign, so everything you do should be carefully and subtly orchestrated for the ultimate seduction.

When making love, remember to stimulate all his senses. Start by surprising him with some special imported dark or white chocolate--Taurus men adore chocolate!--to nibble while consuming their other favorite treat, superb champagne. Other things to have on hand include: dozens of votive candles, a short, silk charmeuse slip for you in a maddeningly flattering color, such as a pale peach (wear nothing underneath), a jar of warm, satiny cream to rub his shoulders and chest with (the areas Taurus men have the most tension), and his favorite CDs on the stereo. (Surprise him with one or two new titles, too.) Wrap up a new designer men`s cologne and tuck it under his pillow--tell him how much this scent turned you on while you were in Saks Fifth Avenue and how it made you ache to be with him. Now, your seduction is all set. Happily, Taurus men don`t like to rush anything they do, so you`re assured that he is yours for that evening! Lucky girl, Taurus is one sign that thoroughly enjoys languorous lovemaking.

Gemini Male

Your Gemini man is full of wit and charm, and often the center of attention, as he delights everyone with a new joke he just heard or a story about what happened to him at work. Since Gemini rules Hermes, the messenger of the Gods, Gemini men are often writers or reporters. They are brilliant communicators, and can talk their way into any opportunity or out of any tight spot.

Your Challenge

This guy likes to keep up-to-date on things, so you`ll have to get his head out of The New York Times and all his other daily doses of news. Nobody reads as many current periodicals as a Gemini! His coffee table probably looks like a newsstand. When he gets done reading, he is likely to be switching on the TV news. You will have to do something with this news junkie or he`ll stay wrapped up in current events. The key is to convince him that you are the most interesting event in his life!

How To Handle Him

First of all, be one of his best news sources. Before you meet up with him, call him with something you just heard on Reuters. Leave a voice mail on his office phone with a late-breaking story, or fax over clippings from a newspaper on a topic that interests him greatly. That will get his initial attention and you`ll be able to move on to more intimate matters.

Keep in mind that Gemini needs constant variety and change; the more surprising and spontaneous you are, the more he will love you. Never reveal everything about yourself to a Gemini, for once they get the idea there is nothing new to discover, they will be tempted to look elsewhere. Gemini men have a deep need to try and figure you out, so keep him guessing!

Be verbal in bed during lovemaking. This will really turn him on. Don`t be shy! Gemini is a highly-intelligent sign, stimulated by both exciting talk and the written word, and appealing to his mind and imagination will keep your sex life lively. Try reading passages from a sexy novel. (Make sure the novel has some literary value--if it is too trashy, he will wonder about your educational level, another important aspect to smart Gemini). Also, try leaving love notes in his suit pockets, his briefcase or anywhere he might casually come across them. Few signs appreciate the now-dead art of writing love letters more than a Gemini.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Treat your Gemini man to a massage with a subtly-fragranced oil to reduce his nervous tension. He is ruled by Mercury, the planet controlling the entire nervous system, and his nerves get jangled easily. Pay particular attention to his hands, for they are susceptible to stress (probably because he is at the keyboard so much). Geminis always appear to be far younger than their years and have great charisma. To best bring out this boyish charm, flirt with him. (Gemini is the best flirt of the zodiac and he will flirt right back.) Step up your witty game of verbal Ping-Pong, if you`re ready for wildfire. No doubt he will be sitting at his computer while you talk with him, for Gemini always does two things at once. As he sits there, intently pounding out his great American novel, seduce him while he is working. Slowly unbutton his shirt as you stand behind his chair and rub his chest. Soon he will be putty in your hands.

Gemini is symbolized by the twins flying through the air, and your Gemini man is happiest when flying to some distant city. Surprise him with tickets for two to a far-away island. Then, use the fact that he`s an air sign to your advantage: seduce him on the flight (the rest room might be small but useful here). He`ll be in his element and more in "in the mood" than anywhere else!

Do Geminis stray? Only if they get bored. What you need to do is to keep them excited and mentally engaged in you. Therefore, here is the ultimate gift for communication-oriented Gemini: Give him a year of internet access along with at least one sexy e-mail message from you per week! What better way for him to stay focused on you?

Gemini Female

The Gemini woman is full of enthusiasm. A vivacious, shining beauty, she can talk about a wide variety of subjects, and she is curious about everything. Don`t advise a Gemini woman that she would be better off doing one thing at a time, for she needs variety and pursues a multitude of interests. She is actually at her best when swamped with things to do! Gemini is an ace communicator too, particularly adept at sharing her emotions and thoughts. (Take away her dial tone and it is like taking away oxygen.) She doesn`t go for a man who crowds her or who limits her space. Gemini is symbolized by the twins flying through the air, and to set limits on a Gemini is like trapping a lovely bird in a small cage.

Your Challenge

This is a busy woman with endless lists of things to accomplish. She does have a tendency to be a bit forgetful too. But who wouldn`t, with her lifestyle? She does more in a week than most of us accomplish in a month! You will need to remain Priority One with her, a hard task, when you`re competing with all her activities, friends and admirers.

How To Handle Her

Read up on current issues, whether it is art, technology, movies, or books--anything interesting you that is topical. Then suggest to her that you and she check out a show or meet in a late night coffee shop to discuss the issues. Gemini adores a lively debate (she was probably captain of her debating team in college). Browse with her in a good bookstore, one that plays music to encourage lingering. (Gemini rules the printed words, thus, she is happy in book shops.) Or, if she has a new laptop, offer to help her set up her system folder. (She has the brains to do it, but prefers to do things like that à deux for the company.) Suggest you go window shopping for a new fax machine one night after work, so that she can choose the best one when she`s ready. Convince her to let you assess the various local cellular phone carriers to choose the best deal for her, then meet to discuss your findings. As you see all these things are communication-oriented, and believe it or not, as dorky as the se things seem, they will really turn her on. She will love you for your thoughtfulness. Trust me on this.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Buy her a cellular phone or a beeper with voice mail messaging, with pre-paid service for a year so you can call her up and leave sexy messages. Or give her an all-expense-paid-trip for two (with you!) to an inland hideaway. (Be sure there are cultural activities and night life available--remember, Gemini needs lots of stimulation). No money? Then fax her a naughty love note if her machine is private or else FedEx her an overnight letter filled with pink and red rose petals--she will be thrilled by your creativity.

In bed, whisper words and little stories you`ve imagined or read. She is the most verbal of all the signs, and her strong intellect and rich imagination is your surest way to passionate love. Read portions of steamy novels too while in bed, and don`t be afraid to laugh or have fun with her when making love. She is one of the most spontaneous of all the signs. Since Gemini is the sign which rules versatility, she will appreciate your reading up on different lovemaking positions--and she`ll be willing to try almost anything at least once. One more hint: she is very verbal, and therefore highly oral. Enough said? You lucky dude, you.

Cancer Male

A family man at heart, your Cancer loves children, roots, and sees home as a haven. When traveling he is prone to get homesick, even in this day and age. A water sign, Cancer is highly emotional and sympathetic. He can be moody. The changing moods of Cancers are one of their greatest charms, and as mutable as the natural landscape. If is raining, you still know the sun will be out soon. Although they are worriers, they have kind and giving temperaments. Cancers also have excellent memories, so anything special that you do for him won`t be forgotten.

Your Challenge

If he is divorced with children, you may have to work hard to be as important to him as his kids. To Cancer, blood is thicker than water, and you may not have first place in the pecking order. If you are married to a Cancer, he can easily get caught up with family and chores and forget that he is a red-blooded male with sexual needs. It is hard for him to remember romance when he is up on the roof, hammering shingles, so it`s up to you to proposition your handyman with an alternative, naughty use for his duct tape.

How To Handle Him

If he is a single dad, see the sexy side of his role as father. Knowing what he`s like when he interacts with his kids heightens, by contrast, the intimacy he shares with you.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Cancer is the only sign that will customarily make a trip to the grocery store to get ready for a big date (even if you are married, you can still have a "big date"). You`ll find him filling up his cart with exotic fruits (mangoes, strawberries) and at the dairy case (whipped cream), among other areas. Making love in the kitchen always ignites his deepest fantasies, so by all means surrender amid the salad makings. He may want to cook and eat together first. As one Cancer man who is very dear to me has whispered more than once: "Cooking isn`t about cooking--it`s pure sex!" And the person who said "The way to a man`s heart is through his stomach" was obviously referring to a Cancer.

Spilling wine over your breasts and letting him watch as you slowly lick it off will excite him, something which could occur around dessert. Cancer rules the breasts (every astrological sign rules a different part of the body), so don`t wear your high-necked blouse on the night you want to start a private little nuclear reaction. This is man who admires some cleavage and will make you glad you have décolletage to display!

If you want to present him a token of your love, frame a new black & white portrait of you in a pure silver frame for his desk. (Cancer rules silver--plus memories and loved ones are also under this sign`s domain.)

One Last Idea

If you want some private time with your Cancer man outside of home, seduce him near water (Cancer is a water sign), perhaps on a deserted beach or on a private yacht. Just about every Cancer I have known needs to be near water to feel completely relaxed and ready for love. Kidnap your beloved and whisk him off to the shore, and be sure to pack a basket of goodies and don your little red riding hood cape--with little or nothing on underneath!

Cancer Female

With her soft translucent skin and lovely shoulders, your Cancer lover makes a knockout entrance to any club wearing her sleek, décolletage slip dress, as only a Cancer lady could carry off. But in case you think you can easily date this beauty, be forewarned that she is no pushover. The Cancer woman is careful about who she gives her heart to, because once she commits, she gives her all. Your lunar lady is truly feminine, and lucky for you, of all the signs, Cancer is the most nurturing and protective of those close to her.

Your Challenge

Her ruler, the moon, rules the changing emotions--so she can be a moody person. This may make it hard to figure out how she feels about you in the early days of your relationship, because at times your stock will appear to rise and fall. If you marry her, this will not be a problem for she will be very loyal to you, and often put your interests ahead of hers. Your lunar goddess takes responsibility seriously. If she is a single mother, her children will come first, and you may have to wait in line. Yet it is this side of her--her mothering instincts--that you probably find so appealing in her.

How To Handle Her

Nothing comes before her spouse and her children in a Cancer woman`s life and thus, she often she forgets her own needs. Here is where you can lavish attention on her. She is a bit of a worrier, and will often second-guess herself about decisions she has made. Reassure her that her judgment is sound, and help her focus more on the future, less on the past. (Cancer rules tradition, and this why she is so marvelous about creating a warm and loving family life--she knows she is building memories!) Holidays and birthdays are important to her, so don`t put her down for wanting to make them special. Instead, support her.

If she seems down and suddenly you find yourself on the outs with her, talk gently with her to get back into her good graces. Harsh tactics would be the wrong approach to take with her. Keep your temper under control and don`t be demanding. Her gentle feelings over-respond to criticism and in the heat of argument you could say something which could crush her irreparably. Cancers have excellent memories and she will remember everything you said, unfortunately whether you meant it or not.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

The Cancer woman`s home is her nest and is highly important to her. Offer to paint her living room or to give her a hand moving furniture around if she wants a new look. If she is divorced with kids, take everyone on an outing (she will be thunderstruck that you are attentive of her children, and love you for the gesture). Later, help her locate a baby-sitter and take her to a small and cozy family-run restaurant where the food is delicious and the lights are low. (Cancers are not comfortable in large, high-key, fancy places. She wants to focus on you, not the surroundings.) If your table has a view overlooking water, so much the better, for water rejuvenates Cancer in a way that other signs simply can`t fathom.

The Cancer woman will enjoy reminiscing, so think about recreating the first time you made love together, perhaps by going back to the same place or by celebrating the anniversary. Or, give her a beautiful album filled with snapshots of the two of you that you`ve been collecting.

When making love, the Cancer woman is fragile and feminine. Because she often puts others first, a little pampering would be a smart idea. To seduce her properly, whip up a surprise gourmet dinner and serve it to her on a small table decorated with flowers and white table linens set up in the bedroom, a place she isn`t used to eating. Have chocolate-covered strawberries for dessert and feed her each by hand, one by one. Hide a love note or special card under her plate--Cancers are sentimental. Be especially careful about what you say to her during lovemaking, for anything she construes as negative could hurt her deeply---teasing is not for her.

Give her an exquisite strand of pearls (Cancer is a crab, a little sea creature like the pearl oyster) or a skimpy, slinky, expensive nightgown in one of her moon colors--silver, creamy white or pale, smoky blue. She would also adore flowers--but instead of sending her red or pink roses, make your bouquet a variety of flowers in Cancer`s color--snow white--tied with a gorgeous thick white satin ribbon.

You`ll eventually discover (if she likes you) that she has beautiful, firm, fully-rounded breasts (the part of the body the sign rules) which, in bed, she adores having her man fondle and admire. Paint them with thousands of kisses and caress them gently.

Leo Male

Ruled by the Sun, giver of life and strength, the Leo man is gregarious and warm-hearted. He is impossible not to notice. His powerful masculinity and commanding presence will be felt immediately, and his sense of showmanship and drama make him sexy and charismatic. He may work in the arts (especially the theater), or do some sort of creative work. He will probably head up a division of a company, if not the entire corporation. Leo men are leaders, not followers.

Your Challenge

Leos are a bit self-absorbed and their egos are huge. Yet they are so warmhearted and loving that these faults will look trivial in the grand overview. He is jealous and possessive, especially in the courting stage, so you will need to find ways to derail his wrath if you plan to date others simultaneously. One thing that Leo doesn`t entertain, is the possibility of being Number Two. He`d rather walk.

How To Handle Him

Gaining the admiration and respect of others is the single most important aspect of the Leo personality for you to keep in mind. This is their driving force, winning out over money, fame and just about anything else. Another aspect of their nature is their love of children and their intolerance of criticism about them from others. Say something detracting about a Leo`s child and you will get a glimpse of the mighty lion`s temper. If he runs low on cash, he won`t accept a loan from you, so don`t be bewildered or get hurt feelings, if this happens. Leo prides himself in being self-sufficient.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Since Leo likes the best of everything, have some cold champagne (with a good label) on ice nearby, some lightly toasted bread and a tiny jar of imported caviar on a silver tray with your best china and crystal. Your Leo lover likes luxury. Your bedding should be new and fresh -- never threadbare. Leo also appreciates flowers, but since he puts a premium on uniqueness, make them exotic or don`t bother.

Leos have a strong sense of drama and presentation, so if you go to a restaurant, choose one which is hotly reviewed, frequented by beautiful people and offers four-star quality. (This is going to be hard on your wallet, I know!) Start the evening off by complementing him on something he did recently or how great he looks. Be sure you look great too--Leo wants someone fabulous on his arm. (You`ll rarely hear a Leo scold his lady for spending too much on herself.) Don`t bring up other beaux or talk about those of your past. Your lion is ruled by the Sun and wants to be the center of your universe. He won`t tolerate competition--present, past or future!

This sign rules teaching, and no other sign can quite match Leo`s ability here. Use this talent by begging him to show you new things to do together in bed. He likes to be in charge anyway, and this will only enhance his natural inclination. When you become intimately involved with him you will find the Leo male needs a great deal of attention and adoration. An exciting and accomplished lover, he will expect you to spend a considerable time on him. Yet his loyalty, devotion and extreme generosity to you will win you over, and soon you`ll find yourself looking for ways to satisfy his every need.

Give your Sun-ruled lover a gold pocket watch or sophisticated gold lighter, since Leo rules gold. Or, since this sign rules theater, tickets to the best Broadway show in town, or to the opera. He loves to dress in black tie (he is the ultimate sophisticate), so give him a good reason to dress up.

Since music is a high priority on his list, check out which new CD titles he would most like to own, but get him Ravel`s Bolero too, if he doesn`t have it. This is perfect for Leo because of the dramatic, throbbing beat. Later that night, show him what Bolero was made for: you, after your slow flamenco-styled strip-tease tango.

Leo Female

A Leo woman is easy to spot. She`s the one lighting up the room in her spectacular designer outfit--Leo women love to make an entrance. Her taste is superb and unfailing. Like chic French women (France is ruled by Leo), a lioness would rather have one dazzling outfit than 20 cheap ones. She has a deep and abiding need for respect from others and will work hard to being noticed and remembered. She is naturally extravagant--don`t even try to tell her she spends too much on clothes (or on her kids either, who she loves to pamper). Yet she is warm, spontaneous and creative too, and you are sure to have fun with this vivacious lioness.

Your Challenge

In a nutshell, your challenge will be to afford this jewel of a woman. Her taste is superb and she won`t settle for second best (which she translates as second rate). She will be demanding, so be prepared to lavish lots of attention on her instead of being preoccupied with your spreadsheets or waxing your car. If you are serious about her, bite the bullet and get some personal help. You will need to maximize your efficiency at home and the office to devote time to your lioness--at least until you win her heart.

How To Handle Her

In all probability she will be handling you, not the other way around! Leo women have a way of being in control, even if they let you think that is not the case. She`s subtle, but strong. She resists any kind of confinement, so don`t try to box her in. Throughout courtship, the Leo woman loves to tease her man, often playing cat-and-mouse games until you "catch" her. When wed, she will do anything in her power to keep things lively and fun, and will build up an entire wardrobe of imported lingerie to keep her man interested. The Leo woman loves to have her lover run his fingers through her mane. She will rarely go to bed without a touch of makeup, even if it`s just a hint of blush or scented body creme. To increase her passion, whisper to her, "You are the most beautiful woman in the world!" . . . and mean it.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

This is one lady you are going to have to woo with gifts. She expects them, wants them, and enjoys them, so you might as well cave in and buy them for her. She looks stunning and regal in purple, so choose something in that color, whether it be a lace teddy, bra and panty set or drop-dead, killer nightie. She will also sparkle in gold--try getting her a classy knit sweater shot through with golden threads that shimmer in the evening light, then take her to a four star restaurant for dinner so she can wear it. Surprise her with an overnight stay at a rustic hotel with ornate wooden architecture and antique furniture. Make sure to reserve a room with a roaring fireplace. Or send her two dozen long-stemmed roses (don`t even THINK of trying to get away with one dozen), a generous box of imported bittersweet chocolates or a bottle of fine champagne for you both to drink later. Buy her tickets to the opera in New York or Rome (orchestra seats, of course.) If buying her a ring or other jewelry, kno w that she adores sapphires, the gem ruling her sign. Start saving now! It`s true, loving a Leo can be a second career in itself. But she`ll adore you for your generosity and will insure you both will have a hell of a lot of fun. So what if the American Express bill is gigantic? Yours will be a life fully enjoyed and a love like no other you could imagine.

Your lioness likes to play games. So, try a serious game of strip poker. Or, if you know each other very well, do a variation on the movie Indecent Proposal. Remember when Demi Moore had to decide whether to take the cool million and bed Robert Redford or stay loyal to Woody Harrelson and give up their dream house? Near the end of the film there is a scene where she and Woody make love on a bed of hundred dollar (or higher) bills. In your own private remake, you are the millionaire, but you don`t have to share her with anyone. For fun, strew her bed with lots of crisp, new crumpled dollar bills (if it`s ones, not fifties or hundreds, who cares?). Leo women have fertile imaginations and a fabulous sense of drama. She`ll adore your little make-believe and beg you to think of more!

Virgo Male

Your Virgo man is modest, meticulous and discriminating. He is a joy to live with as long as you understand the Virgo man`s obsessive need to be productive on a daily basis. He is practical, patient and is able to handle detail, and the amount of details he handles would drive others up the wall. The Virgo`s talent is knowing how to make dreams (their own and those of others) a reality.

Your Challenge

Virgos are worriers, so your first step will be to calm him down when you have time alone together. Often workaholics, your Virgo will have a hard time detaching from his everyday schedule. But you must, for they are incredibly passionate lovers once his total attention has been turned to you.

How To Handle Him

He`s productivity oriented, so "goofing off" might be a foreign idea and too scary for him at the onset. Since Virgo is wonderful at fixing things--his sharp mind hungers for things to take apart and figure out--so ask him to help you out. Tell him that you are hopeless with home repairs and he has got to come over and take a look at your air conditioner. His small motor skills are the finest in the zodiac, so many Virgos like to putter around the house, looking for little projects. Puttering takes their minds off more stressful issues.

Remind him how turned-on you were when you saw him wearing worn jeans and a plaid lumberjack shirt, jump-starting his car. Tell him you fantasize about him walking around your apartment measuring walls for shelving, just wearing his tool belt. (This kind of flattery will accomplish two things: you will have a hot, passionate lover ready to ravish you and no more leaky faucets.) Cruise around Home Depot, just to get him in the mood. Then, one afternoon when he is putting in a new set of florescent lights over your kitchen counter, pounce on him and tell him you are getting hot watching him screw those huge bulbs in. Make love to him right then and there.

Virgo Female

The quality people notice first about your Virgo beloved is her alertness and unmistakable intelligence. It has been said that Virgo`s gift is making order out of chaos. Send a Virgo into a hurricane-ravaged town, and in no time they`ve pitched the tents, organized the shipments of food and water, and started clearing the roadways. If it is one thing Virgo does well, it`s organize people and things. If your life is a bit of a hurricane, you`re in luck, for she will provide a willing ear and heaps of amazing practical advice-- ideas you will wish you had thought of long ago.

Your Challenge

Virgo women have lists of things to do, and sometimes you could wind up being one more item on her list. Becoming "Priority #10-D" is something to avoid at all costs! Once she writes you into her Filofax as "Sex with James, Thursday @ 9:00 PM" you know you`ve hit bottom, and it is time to do something drastic--and delightful!.

How To Handle Her

Your goal is to allow her to take time to relax and gently pull her away from her everyday cares. She hates being lazy, so accomplishing this isn`t going to be as easy. Like the male Virgo, the female Virgo loathes making love in a hovel, so if this describes your place, you`d better spiff it up. Nothing turns off a Virgo faster than dirt or mess. She isn`t impressed with luxury, so don`t worry about having things "good enough" for her--crisp, just laundered cotton sheets and some soft pillows are fine. But if you don`t get organized, before you know it, she`ll be out of bed and cleaning up the place--the last thing you want her to be doing in her Victoria`s Secret teddy! As good as it sounds, to have some lovely geisha cleaning up your pigsty, think about it. If she`s stacking dishes in the dishwasher, she isn`t making love to you, so get your priorities straight, buddy. Besides, god knows where she`ll "neaten up" your collection of half-dirty basketball shorts TO. So take away the clamor o f disorder that distracts her and when she`s with you, you will be all that exists in her world.

She adores high fashion and well-made clothing. As the saying goes, "God in the details," and details are this perfectionist`s forte. Most Virgo women enjoy staying up-to-date on the latest couture trends (she is ruled by Mercury, so she is oriented toward staying current). Yet their appearance will likely be elegant and understated rather than flashy, often choosing neutrals over bright colors. She likes to dress up, so think of a nice restaurant where she can wear some of her new things. Tattered jeans and polo shirts are not her style.

Buy her an article of clothing or piece jewelry that is high fashion but enduring, top quality, like a Tiffany or Cartier watch that she can treasure for years. (She`s madly punctual, so what better gift?). Her sign rules jade, the stone of fidelity, so a ring or pendant made of that stone is especially meaningful. You could alternatively give her a beauty service, like a year of manicures and pedicures (Virgo likes her nails fastidiously groomed) or six months of a personal trainer (fitness is a big thing with her) and still make a big hit with her.

In love, she is highly ethical and idealistic, so don`t be surprised if your Virgo comes to you with little sexual experience. She`s just very discriminating about who she will give her heart and body to. Don`t think that means she lacks passion. Quite the contrary! Virgos are just better at controlling their intense, smoldering feelings, but once released, watch out! When she finds a man she is willing to devote her life to, she can be a tiger in bed. Her secret strength is that she communicates her needs well and will also listen closely to, and act on, what her lover needs.

Since Virgo prizes cleanliness so much, seduce her with a bubble bath for two. Set dozens of softly-scented votive candles around the bathroom and be sure to have some thick, luxurious towels nearby. A bottle of champagne would be good to have on hand, as would a bowl of finger fruits--grapes, strawberries, raspberries--to feed her one by one. After your bath, give her a full body massage. Later, when you make love, be sure to talk to her during sex because nothing as erotic to her as her vivid imagination. Describe places and situations where you would like to make love to her down to the tiniest details. (When she begins asking questions to keep you taking about a certain scenario, you`re on the right track).

To thank him for all his home improvement, you might want to take him to dinner. When choosing the restaurant, remember that a Virgo`s digestive system is delicate. Most Virgos dislike overly rich food and try to eat balanced healthful meals. Many are vegetarians.

Another point to consider is that Virgo has a strong need to be highly organized. So when seducing the Virgo man, be sure you have a neat bedroom and put unnecessary clutter out of sight. (Seeing junk around will make him edgy.) In bed, the Virgo man is like the Gemini (both are ruled by Mercury) in that his need to communicate is strong. Talking during lovemaking will heighten his pleasure and add to his passion for you.

Many Virgos are talented writers. Their reserved nature makes them express in writing what they would have difficulty saying in person. Happily, you may be the lucky recipient of one of the wonderful love letters only a Virgo could write. Drop hints that you would like to receive something written especially for you. A perfect gift for him would be a beautiful fountain pen or engraved stationary. He would also adore a P.D.A. or electronic organizer, a laptop computer, new software, or even a dust buster for his car. You could also buy him a deluxe tool kit (don`t forget those metric socket wrenches too) and let matters take their own course!

Libra Male

Libra is the natural sign of partnership, so it follows that the Libra man prefers being married (or at least living together) over flying solo. He will work toward making his union strong and happy. True justice is a very important issue with Libra, and sometimes you might find him moping around murmuring "It`s not fair!" No one has yet succeeded to convince him that life in general isn`t fair. Libras have a strong ideas about making life fair, and they make their decisions and arrange their actions around what they feel is the most just and equitable solution. When drawn into a dispute, your Libra lover will quickly state his position and he`s done--there is no hanging on to old arguments, no poking into old wounds, and never any sarcasm. Libras are too refined and gentlemanly to fight dirty. He will expect the same from you.

Your Libra guy loves to socialize. This is one man you will not have to coax into going to or hosting a party, and, oh, the parties that they give! They are the best! Libras are the ones who know everyone, and there is sure to be a famous face or two at one of their bashes.

Your Challenge

Libra men have so many friends and are so charming themselves, that it is hard to know where you stand, at least at the beginning of a relationship. They are very loyal once they commit, but until then, this air sign tends to flit around like a butterfly and is rather hard to pin down. Initially, what you have to do is draw attention to yourself in a ladylike way and make him realize you are the companion he wants to spend his time with.

How To Handle Him

Lovemaking is something Libra will look forward to with relish--rarely will he want anything quick or rushed. He enjoys the process of seduction, something he has elevated to an art form, and he will take his time with his woman, careful to attend to her emotional needs as well as her physical ones. He is quite visual in orientation and likes his to see you dressed in elegant lingerie (Libra is a refined sign, so don`t get too trashy or flashy). When you are getting ready to make love a Libra, wear your most elegant jewelry, like pretty earrings and a fine necklace, with little lacy underthings he can easily remove.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Libra is ruled by Venus, who controls the arts, so music is very important to him and he will have a great stereo system at home. Buying him a good car stereo or auto CD player is a great way to make sure he always picks you up in a wonderful mood.

Here`s an idea for a Libran seduction: propose a day spent touring a pretty rural locale and tuck some of his favorite music into the glove compartment. Don`t forget to pack a gourmet picnic basket (Libra likes fine food and delicacies). While he is driving and his hands are full, start to touch him--before you know it, you will be pulled over on a small dirt road, the music reaching crescendo, while he makes love to you in the back seat, just like two high school teenagers. There is something devilishly lovely about doing it in the back seat of his BMW or Lexus (many Libra men are lawyers, so they can afford good cars). Later, suggest you go to a drive-in movie but don`t permit any monkey business there--make him concentrate on the film. Libras appreciate subtle plotting like this. Pet him all the way home as he drives, helpless in his securely fastened seat belt. By time you are inside the door he`ll be ready for you all over again!

Libra Female

Libra women have busy social calendars and keep happy by surrounding themselves with adoring friends. Still, this lady wants to be married, so don`t be fooled by her gadding about. Once wed, she will attend to her marriage as fiercely as her career.

Always fashionably-dressed, she favors an eclectic look, mixing designer things with antique pieces. The final effect is smart and sexy, never dowdy. This Venus-ruled beauty is beautifully groomed, and smells as good as she looks, for she never leaves the house without a light spray of something intoxicating. Her figure is usually curvy, svelte and feminine, so you don`t even stand a chance of resisting her. The most memorable quality about your Libra lover is her quintessential grace; in every movement she makes, every word she utters, she is poetry in motion.

Your Challenge

Your mission 007, is to capture her heart. Not an easy task, considering the line of men waiting in line. She has no shortage of opportunities, so competition will be stiff.

How To Handle Her

She has powerful talents of persuasion and her lover may not know exactly how she gets her way, but she does every time--in the most charming fashion. Be wary of getting wrapped around her little finger, for although she may protest, she secretly likes a man who stands up to her now and then. If you are only semi-conscious most of the time, you don`t stand a chance of winning her heart.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Think of the cherubs in old master paintings, flying though the air, holding branches of roses or a lovely harp. This describes your angelic lover. She`d adore anything decorative, from sweetheart roses, soft silk lingerie in a delicate colors, to perfume in a modern or gentle floral tone (nothing jarring for Libra). One of Libra`s favorite gifts is jewelry, but it has to be the real thing. Costume jewelry will tarnish, just like your relationship will if you try to give her this. Robbing a bank may be your only choice to get her what she wants. She might also enjoy a beautiful mirror, framed in gold leaf. Let`s pause a moment --perhaps you`ve just thought of something naughty? Before you get carried away, let me advise you that not all Libras like making love in front of a mirror. Venus endowed her with curves and she may be a bit self-conscious about them (silly girl.) Put the mirror up in the bedroom and let her gradually get used to it. Keep telling her how tell her how gorgeous she look s without a stitch on.

The Libra woman adores lighter foreplay activities and is a world-class kisser. If you haven`t yet tapped into this aspect of her, you are missing one of life`s true experiences. Corner her into a hot necking session somewhere like at the movies, where the other viewers won`t care if you and she are going at one another like two kids hell bent on trouble. If you are lucky, the usher may come with her flashlight and scold you!

When you finally get her to bed she will want a slow hand, for Libra women never marry cold fish or slam-bam-thank-you-m`am types. She is highly romantic and sensitive and wants you to be that way too. Her bed usually has many fluffy pillows and the most beautiful linens she can afford. She wants music in the bedroom, but no TV (too indelicate--who wants to hear about the Congressional budget or a mugging in Queens when one is in the throes of passion?) One last hint: Libra rules the lower back and will purr like a kitten when her man massages it with a lightly scented cream. Meow!

Scorpio Male

The Scorpion is determined, shrewd, protective, jealous, and powerful. It is a sign prone to obsession, and the Scorpio man is not nonchalant about anything, from his career to his love life. Symbolized by the phoenix rising from the ashes, this bird aptly suggests Scorpio`s incredible ability to regenerate from seemingly disastrous situations. Much has been written about how sexy and mysterious Scorpio is. To him sex is very important, and it would be impossible for him to have a happy relationship without great sex. The Scorpio male is macho, a modern day 007: thrilling, strong, silent and handsome.

Your Challenge

One of the challenges of being in love with a Scorpio male is to get him to voice his innermost thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it is impossible know exactly what a Scorpio is thinking! He can be a temperamental, jealous lover, so watch your step. You will have to play by his rules or leave him. With this man, there are no shades of gray.

How To Handle Him

Still waters run deep, and you will find him fiercely loyal and deeply passionate. This Pluto ruled-lover would never dream of divulging details of your private life together to others, and expects the same from you. Woe to the woman who strays from his bed to another lover, for he will never forgive her. The Scorpion`s sting is never used casually, only when he feels threatened to the core, for its sting kills not only the victim but the Scorpion itself. Scorpio will never suffer betrayal.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

If you want to get your Scorpio lover a bit more relaxed and focused on you, try taking him to a small, cozy restaurant that serves solid manly food like a juicy steak and fries. Red wine will probably be his choice over champagne. The Scorpio male is no delicate gourmand. He would love a dark, rich chocolate mouse for dessert, if he likes sweets (some Scorpios do, some don`t). Wear your little black dress or something in burgundy, his favorite color.

Your Scorpio will want you to be uninhibited. Don`t become offended if he suggests viewing a sex video together. He does not see pornography as degrading to women, but as research and stimulus for new things to do. Since this sign rules law enforcement, crime and punishment, suggest he play policeman with you. Give him a gift box containing a blindfold and some handcuffs and you`ll be all set. This man likes trying out a little light S&M playacting too so if you trust him, be cooperative if wants to put his naughty girl over his knee for a little spanking. This intense sign will insist on being the one in control, but surrendering to a Scorpio can be divine rapture.

Scorpio Female

The Scorpio woman has great charm, allure, and inner strength, and is able to overcome most any obstacle in life. She comes across as self-confident and self-possessed and men are drawn to her for that reason. There is a mysterious quality about the Scorpio woman, because she is intensely private, discrete and secretive. Soon she will learn everything about you, but later you will realize that she hasn`t given you many details about herself--that`s Scorpio`s natural reticence.

Finally, the operative word to best understand your Scorpio lover is "passion." One Scorpio once said to me that passion was the single most important ingredient in life, that is, to be passionate about one`s loved ones, one`s career, one`s lifestyle, for without passion, what kind of life would we have in the end? Well said!

Your Challenge

Your Scorpio beauty is attracted to power, so if you have it, you are ahead of the game. Your other challenge will be that this lady has a mind of her own, so if you think you can tame her, forget it.

How To Handle Her

Her highly intuitive nature makes her a mind reader extraordinaire, so don`t try to hide anything from her. If you are trying to impress her with power you don`t have, her Pluto-ruled nature will sense it like a homing device. (Certainly you don`t want to activate her seek and destroy mechanism.) In love and friendship, she is true-blue loyal and will expect the same from you. If you show her the slightest reason to distrust you, however, she will never forgive you. On the other hand, treat her well and she will reward you for the rest of your life. Home and family are regarded as sacred, and Scorpio will defend and support her man to the ends of the earth. Like Leo women, Scorpio women are into control, and with her magnetic, femme fatale powers, she will soon have the upper hand. After all, who could resist her famous Scorpion gaze, those memorable bedroom eyes?

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

If you take your Scorpio beloved out for dinner, make it a private little dark rendezvous, overlooking water if possible or better yet, as a guest on a private yacht (preferably yours). The Scorpion woman will always be understated with her powerful sexuality--she doesn`t need to flaunt it, it exudes naturally. In her dress, she is very careful about her accessories, buying only the finest shoes and handbags, and if she needs one, an elegant leather brief case. She knows these accessories punctuate her entire look and impart a feeling of true elegance. Get her quality things made out of leather (down, boy, not those things). If treating her to perfume, get her a modern oriental or something of musk and subtly sexual.

While the Scorpio woman is always a lady in public, she loves being her man`s fantasy woman in the bedroom. Buy her some new lingerie in of her most flattering tones: maroon, eggplant or a black. Elegant French and Italian imported lingerie will impress her so buy her a demi-cup push up bra, tiny, sheer g-string bikini and elegant garter belt, complete with a pair of black seamed stockings. She may also be amused and aroused by a lavishly illustrated photography book by Helmut Newton or Doris Kloster. If you get lucky, she may want to experiment a little by lap dancing for you and you alone.

This sign rules detective work, so plan a mystery for her. She has a rich imagination and this should work whether you`ve known her a month or a decade. Tell her to meet you in the most elegant hotel bar in town. When you spot her, stand at the other end of the bar and have the waiter send over a glass of champagne and a note from you. By now the suggestive nature of your behavior will have the staff murmuring and staring and it will begin to turn her on tremendously. After the second or third drink, send her the key to your room in a small envelope. (Book their best suite ahead of time and stock it with roses and.) When she`s pocketed the key, have her meet you by the elevator. Ride up alone, pushing her against the back wall of the elevator and tell her in great detail what you have planned. Show her the silk ribbons you`ve tucked into your breast pocket--Scorpio is intrigued by bondage. Although she will try her hardest not to show it, she will be aching for you to begin. She won`t forget this mystery, and neither will you!

Saggitarius Male

Your Sagittarius guy has a strong intellect, penetrating thought process and continual curiosity about the world around him. Your man is ready for a deep discussion on ethics, morality, politics, philosophy, or religion, so go ahead one night and tackle The Meaning Of Life. Unlike Gemini, who focuses on details of the here and now, Sagittarius looks at the entire sweep of collected knowledge and tries to make sense out of the big picture. His most attractive qualities are his faith and optimism, and his customary cheer will endear him to you. This sign also has major wanderlust, so pack your glacier glasses and bug spray if you want to travel with him on his jaunts to the most exotic locales. Finally, this is the sign of the ultimate jock. Many of our most gifted Olympians are born under this sign and he will require lots of physical activity. If he sounds like a handful, it`s because he is, but such an interesting handful!

Your Challenge

Your Sagittarius man likes the bachelor life more than most signs, so getting him to commit may take some doing. Freedom is something he values enormously and it`s crucial for him to be able to do what he wants to do.

How To Handle Him

"Mens sanis in corpore Sagittarius" Sag has so much energy he will need some sort of regular exercise to keep him from going completely mental. If he needs to spend what you believe to be inordinate amounts of time at the gym, don`t hassle him-- humor him instead. (You won`t be able to win this one anyway). Enjoy his beautiful shoulders and abs and glutes and tell him he looks just like the Diet Coke man.

Sag is great because they always tell the truth, but sometimes hearing unvarnished truth can be rough on the rest of us. They have no sense of diplomacy, so if you ask their opinion, be ready to hear it! In love, Sag needs lots of sex and sports but he has an equal need for an intellectual partner. He will want his woman to stay up to date on political issues and trends and he will enjoy lively and even heated debates. If he needs regular nights out with the boys, say "fine." Nothing spoils a relationship faster for a Sag than a sense of claustrophobia.

Things To Do, Gifts To Buy

Equipment for his favorite sport or new workout clothing would be good, and if you are feeling generous, a membership to a health club would be ideal (that would be a subtle acknowledgment of his manly physical prowess). This sign adores animals too, so you could surprise him with that pet Dalmatian puppy he wants.

Sagittarius is a sophisticated sign that enjoys international cuisine. When taking him to dinner read the reviews and find an unusual restaurant such as one that serves Vietnamese, Japanese, Turkish, or Thai cuisine. Afterwards, continue the international theme by going to a foreign flick. Oft
