matthew currie astrology seduce a geminiBefore you go off and start that romantic conversation with your Gemini of choice, read the introduction to this series: CLICK HERE for it.

So: you’ve decided to take on the charms and wit of a Gemini. Good for you! They’re a lot of fun. Yes, sometimes you may wonder if they’re taking you seriously, or taking the right things seriously at the right time, but hey — no one’s perfect. Gemini isn’t really as flighty as they sometimes get accused of: you’re just having a hard time keeping up with what they’re finding significant at any given minute. But if you think about it, that does sound like fun, doesn’t it?

Here are some handy tips for making time with a Gemini:

WORK WITH THE HEAD: Intellectual stimulation is the key here. Let your intended Gemini know you’re smart. Don’t be afraid to steer the conversation towards your field(s) of expertise, whatever it may be. If they have an interest in it (or are willing to fake it), you’ve got their attention. If that Gemini isn’t familiar with that field, they’ll probably want to know more — and withing a few minutes will have a surprising grasp of the subject.

LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX: Okay, this doesn’t mean you have to lay it all out on the table (literally or figuratively), but at least talking around the subject can lead things to where you’re wanting them to go. If there’s anyone who can be convinced to get into bed with you for purely logical reasons, it might be Gemini.

LISTEN AND TAKE NOTES: The Twins have a reputation for talking about things a lot. If you pay close attention to both what they’re saying and the possible subtext, they’ll let you know exactly where they’re going with their emotions, even if it isn’t the exact subject being discussed. Did that sentence seem a little too complicated for its own good? Yeah, that’s Gemini.

HAND THEM ENOUGH ROPE: Again, take an intellectual approach… keep ’em talking. Show some interest. Understanding a Gemini and agreeing with them is as good as roses and chocolates. If you can keep up with their reasoning, then you’ve got it made.

Psssst — hey. Did you notice that the above four points are largely re-phrasings of the same point, four different ways? Yeah. Gemini.

***

Finally, something you should avoid with Gemini – boredom. Okay, it’s pretty much impossible to keep a Gemini entertained ALL the time… even another Gemini can’t do that. But shoot down a Gemini’s ideas, keep them restricted in a routine, ignore them while they’re talking, and generally show a lack of interest in whatever is fascinating them today, and you’ll lose this one.

matthew currie astrology seduce taurusBefore you decide to storm into the Taurus bullpen of love, CLICK HERE to read the introduction to the series.

Pretty much everyone loves love, and it’s no surprise the Taurus – being ruled by Venus, the goddess of love – has a particular talent for drawing attention that way. This might explain in part their reputation for “going slow”: in general Taurus tends to be slow to decide and slow to commit either romantically (or to a meal choice for that matter). As the saying goes, “you can have it fast or you can have a good,” and that applies in particular to Taurus.

Here are some general Bull-taming tips. Remember that these all apply to varying degrees to the Sun Sign, Venus Sign, and Mars Sign, as outlined in the introduction.

OPEN YOUR HEART AND YOUR WALLET: Taurus has a particular dislike for “cheapness,” whether it’s of the financial or emotional variety. If Taurus was your cat, they’d hold out for the expensive can of Fancy Feast and jump on your face that night if you served them the generic brand.

This may be the single biggest key to getting and keeping a Taurus. You’d better treat them like a blue-chip investment.

WORK THE SENSES: Bulls are creatures of the senses. Wear something that invites touch, make sure you smell good, and for heaven’s sake shower/shave/do your hair and all that. Don’t take them somewhere loud and obnoxious for that first date!

WORK THE NECK: As soon as you are at the “physical contact” stage, remember that Taurus rules the neck, and they are particularly sensitive there. If you have massage skills, this could be a winning ploy — they park their tension in the neck too.

COMFORT IN CLASS: Taurus loves a good feeding. Comfort food is a sure winner — yes, even if your Taurus claims to be on a diet. Served in either a classy restaurant setting or a cozy home and you’ve got a winner. Knowing how to cook well is a huge bonus skill.

One thing you should definitely avoid with the Taurus is the full-on frontal assault approach. When it’s time to charge in, the Bull will do the charging. Until then, you’ll simply have to work your moves the best you can and be safely encouraging. Don’t ever get behind a Bull and push!

matthew currie astrology seduce ariesSo: you’ve decided to seduce an Aries. It’s easy enough to get initial attention from one of those Ram People, but it can be a little trickier to hold it long enough to get anywhere with it. This does not at all mean they are fickle. It’s just that, as Signs go, they tend to have a short attention span. Fortunately there are a few simple tips and tricks that can help you achieve your goal, and get and keep the Aries Love Attention.

Remember that these all apply to various degrees to the Sun Sign, Venus Sign, and Mars Sign, as outlined in the introduction, which you should go back and read now if you haven’t already.

SHOW INTEREST BUT BE A CHALLENGE: All the same rules apply to Aries as they do to everyone else, but at heart Aries loves a challenge. Let your Aries know you’re interested but then find a way to pull it back a little at the last minute. This will show both interest a present a challenge.

Example: “Hey, wouldn’t it be great to go out to dinner? Unless of course you’re just too busy or something…”

FOLLOW THEIR LEAD: Aries has a fondness for being in charge. Don’t harsh their buzz by disagreeing with their decisions too much. If Aries comes up with an idea you don’t want to go for, try steering him or her to a similar alternative rather than just shooting it down.

BUST OUT SOME SWAGGER: Aries likes to come across as confident even if they aren’t always. They are also drawn to that sort of thing in a potential mate. You’re not clashing with them, you’re bringing your own strength to the table. So: chin up, chest out, and don’t slouch.

KEEP IT FRESH: Aries has a reputation for being a bit impatient, and for not having the world’s longest attention span. That reputation is well-earned. So no matter which tip or trick or technique works, keep working variations on it.

…And finally, one thing to avoid: be careful not to deflate their ego. Aries is the Sign in which the sun is in its “exaltation,” and the sun is the Ego. This does not necessarily mean that an Aries is an egomaniac, but it can be easy to bruise that part of their psyche. Oh, but don’t let them know you’re handling them with kid gloves either.

matthew currie astrology compatibilityIn preparation for my upcoming series on flirting, I consulted that source of all wisdom (the Internet) for what guidance I could find on the subject of flirting. If you do a search for “how to flirt” you will quickly discovered two things:

-There is a lot of advice out there for teenagers on the subject. This is a reminder of two very important things: teenagers drive a lot of traffic on the Internet, and teenagers are generally completely lacking in self-confidence.

-There is a lot of terrible advice out there about how to flirt, and as is often the case with terrible advice in so many subject areas, Cosmopolitan stands proudly at the vanguard. Although, in all fairness, their advice to “ask the motorcycle dude next to you to tell the story behind his awesome tattoo” just might work.

Most of the advice out there boils down to something like “be bold, but not too bold” and “make eye contact, but try not to look like a stalker” Fortunately, science has something to say on the whole matter of flirting. If you want to look it up, there has been lots of surprisingly specific research done as to what gestures to make, what to say, what’s the right amount of smiling, arm touching, and body language behavior to engage in. But once you’re broken it down and studied the science, give yourself an advantage by using the power of astrology.

It seems to me that, even though flirting isn’t generally considered “aggressive,” it is still a part of the active sex drive… in other words, Mars. Venus is more passive, but has its role too. Venus is what you bait the trap with, but Mars is the act of setting that trap. So once you’ve read all those articles online about what kind of eye contact is best and when and how to use touch and so on, you can improve your odds of success by understanding the strengths of your Mars placement.

Mars in a Fire Sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Your particular strength is in taking action and being bold about it. Take whatever flirting advice you read about and then turn the volume up on it by about 10%.

Mars in an Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): You have a reputation for being particularly sensual and… well, earthy… so pay particular attention to your body language and the strategic usage of touch at the right moments. Your touch is particularly powerful, so use it!

Mars in an Air Sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Air Signs have a reputation for being good with words, and you should take advantage of your gift for banter. Also: your eyes are particularly appealing. Play them up.

Mars in a Water Sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You have a reputation for being particularly sensitive and emotional, so work with that. Make the target of your affections comfortable with you, put them at ease… then move in for the kill.

Understand your strengths and apply them wisely, and you’ll get better results. But of course: unless you intent to flirt with yourself, you’ll need to know a bit about your intended target’s astrological details. The upcoming series focuses on Sun Signs, but applies well to a person’s Venus Sign (if your intent is more romantic/sexual) or their Moon Sign (if you simply want to put someone at ease with you). So yes: you’ll be able to use this information to successfully win over a Sagittarius with Moon in Cancer and Venus in Aquarius (or whatever). Yes, it’s a bit complex… but so are humans.

PS: Hey, Cosmopolitan! Your advice to flirt with the guy by buying him “a pair of silk boxers to pamper his package since he’s been ‘working extra hard lately'” is probably the dumbest thing I’ve seen since the last time I read Cosmopolitan. But: I do these things for you, Dear Reader. You’re welcome.
