When it comes to being affectionate, all the zodiac signs have their own way of showing affection and love towards their partners.
The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman is a wonderful book that explains that there are five different ways in which people can experience and express the love that Chapman refers to as “Love Languages”.
- Receiving gifts,
- Quality time,
- Words of affirmation,
- Acts of service (devotion),
- Physical Touch
People tend to naturally give love in the way they like to receive love and great intimacy and communication can be established between the couples if they have a better understanding of each other’s love languages.
One way to find out about our and our partner’s love language is through observation.
You can observe if they like to give you verbal compliments and words of affirmation to express their love or they use physical touch such as hugs and kisses to express their love or they like to do things like household chores to help you to express their love.
You can also use the wisdom of Astrology to gain an insight into your and your partner’s behavior and ways of expressing love.
There are 12 zodiac signs and each of the twelve signs represents a stage in the cycle of solar energy.
Our zodiac sign influences our behavior, our aims, and the way we do things.
There are some zodiacs that are more emotional and affectionate and demonstrate their love by physical touch and others that are more logical and practical and demonstrate their love by acts of service or words of affirmation.

12. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is at the end of the spectrum of emotional affection.
