a zodiac wheelThe practice of astrology has been around for thousands of years and continues to be popular everyday. At the moment there is a lot of trending activity in the relationship space about astrology as more and more people seem to be turning to this mystical form of divination in order to decipher their current relationship or to gain insight into a new relationship that is potentially blossoming.

When someone uses astrology for relationship purposes, it is known as Synastry. Synastry has been practiced for thousands of years and continues to be popular in modern day life.

Everyone’s had the experience of feeling attraction for someone who they don’t necessarily consider “their type”. This leaves many of us to wonder if there are then other forces at work or perhaps even pre-determined destiny.

For a lot of people, this is just utter nonsense. However, there are a great many people believing that astrology does, in fact, have an influence on love and romance. Cosmopolitan has a great article on this here. We really enjoyed reading this article and was the initial spark for us writing this post. I hope you enjoy it, too!

Many other websites are also talking about specific things that attract different people depending on their zodiac sign, which proves that this is, indeed, a very popular subject.

For example, Scorpio’s are said to be more attracted to people who are honest, trustworthy, passionate and have a great sense of style, according to the Scorpio Men website. Their article on attracting a Scorpio gives details on what to do and not to do to get him under your spell.

I looked up my zodiac sign, which is Libra to see if people were writing similar things about me and lowe and behold, I also find several other articles like this one on things to do to attract a Libra woman and things to do to attract a Libra man.

Interestingly, it turns out that most of the info out there on these subjects are written for women, so it seems that women are generally more into the whole horoscope thing than men. Although there are also articles out there to help the guys.

All this noise on the subject kinda gives us the feeling that we’re onto something here so we thought we’d throw out two cents in for our readers.

Are People Really Attracted To Other Dependent On Star Sign Characteristics?

Being a Libra myself, I am often sceptical of such things. However, interestingly Libran’s are said to be most attracted to people who are Capricorn, which is the star sign of my partner. On thinking back to my past relationships, I realised that another three ex-partners were also Capricorn, which is quite considerable since I have only had eight romantic partners in my life. That’s fifty percent! Hmm, this got me wondering…

Conversely, I was a bit disappointed to find that Capricorn’s are not supposed to be instinctively attracted to Libran’s, according to all the hype out there. But rather, they are said to have the most attraction towards Sagittarius people. Hmm, my sister’s Sagittarius, I hope my boyfriend doesn’t find her more attractive than me!

Taking to one of my favorite websites on the net, YouTube, I found that there are also an abundance of videos on the topic including this one, which explains why we’re attracted to some people according to their signs and not others. Amazingly, this video only has around fifteen-hundred views at present, but thirty-four of those people liked the video with a thumbs up against only one solitary person who gave it the thumbs down. So this can either indicate that the majority of people watching these videos to in fact agree that astrology is a credible predictor for romance or the majority of people watching these videos are just pro astrology.

This is a great, new updated video about this topic. I hope you enjoy it.

Popular opinion

From all this research I then decided to ask the opinions of my friends. I was actually surprised to find that across the ones I asked (seventeen in total), around 740% of them believed that star signs can influence who you’re attracted to. I was then compelled to do a Google search to find out how many Americans on average believe in astrology. While the statistic isn’t quite as high as my crude little survey, it still showed that around 29% of people living in America believe in astrology, which the majority of those being women. This was covered in an article that I found on Mashable.com. You can see the article here.

To be fair, thirteen of the friends I asked are women, so given the previous findings, I guess it’s not surprising that the percentage is actually quite high. It would be interesting to do another survey asking an equal number of men and women and then a third survey of say ten people from each star sign. Perhaps this will be a topic for a future blog post!

Tips For Sexting Your Man

First of all, do what you can to find out what your man likes and doesn’t like. Pay attention to what really seems to turn him on in particular when the two of you are together. Once you have some sexting ammo, start to use it to your advantage to send his pulse racing as he reads your messages.

The more personal you can make your dirty talk, the more it will affect your man and keep him on his toes waiting for the next text from you. For instance, if he really likes role play and you know he likes nurses, text him about you being a naughty nurse that can make his sexual fantasies come true.


Next, find the appropriate times to text your man with your dirty talk. If you know he’s in a meeting, try not to interrupt him with your texts because your words will be getting him all hot and bothered. The last thing he will want is to get wood in the middle of an important meeting! And you know you don’t want him getting that way when he’s in a room with co-workers.

One way to start is by being a bit more subtle at first and then gradually turning up the heat with your naughtiness. This is usually preferred by women who are not so used to sexting. If you are more confident or if you have some experience with dirty talk then you can surprise him out of the blue with a slutty message. Telling him what you want to do to him or how it feels so good when he does ‘X’ to you can be an excellent way to raise his eyebrows and um, a smile.

Use Pauses

One great way to be more seductive speaks more softly to strategically use pauses at specific times while you are talking. The texting equivalent of this would be to send a short message but don’t quite finish what you are saying and press ‘send’. Then sending the second or third part of the message a minute or so after the first one. This can help to create some curiosity and intrigue as he eagerly waits for your next message, wondering what you are going to say.

Get Dirty With It

When you are ready and you feel the time is right, start to use those really dirty words to drive him wild. Don’t over-do it, but surprising him with a bit of filth now and then can turn a guy on like you wouldn’t believe. Guys want their woman to be a lady in public, but behave very erotically with him behind closed doors.

You can make this technique even more effective when you use a sensual tonality and whisper the words in his ear. Inserting pauses strategically juts before you say the sexy words will make him hyper-responsive to your suggestions and the suspense will turn him on even more.


As you can see, through taking time to talk dirty to your man through text messaging, you can really help to improve your relationship. Make sure that your dirty talk is something you know he will appreciate. If you aren’t sure what he likes yet, just make your talk generic until you learn more about how to really get under his skin (in a good way). Then, make sure that when you send the texts, you don’t have to worry about someone other than your man reading it. You will open up many doors when you talk dirty to your man and sexual adventures abound can soon follow, which can really spice up your relationship and bring the two of you closer together.

As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, talking dirty to a man makes them feel good as they feel like you really want them. They will then, in turn, be keen to show you how much they appreciate and want you too. This helps to strengthen the connection in your relationship and build a strong bond between the two of you.
