Getting engaged is something you may have always dreamed of, but you’ll never quite know how you’ll react to the moment. Your zodiac sign might give you some clues, though!
Find out how your sign handles getting engaged below.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
"OK, so what season are we talking? Color palette? Menu? I need details."
With fiery, detail-oriented Aries, there’s no such thing as a getting engaged grace period. You’ll have your guest count, wedding aesthetic and late-night snack planned approximately 30 seconds after snapping a ring selfie.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
"Let’s get this thing appraised, insured and added to our will, please."
You’re an interesting and unique mix of extreme practicality and Venusian romance. It’s not that you won’t enjoy the warm and fuzzies of getting engaged. It’s just that you’re quickly ready to move on to more practical matters, like ring insurance.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)
"Your little speech was great, now listen to my monologue about why I said yes."
You’re the great communicator of the zodiac with words for every occasion. While your partner may have thought their grand proposal was the end, they thought wrong. A Gemini will immediately launch into an artful and eloquent speech the moment after getting engaged, so we hope your love is comfy.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
"Can you hand me a sports drink? I need to re-hydrate after all these tears."
Look, Cancer, you’re a water sign ruled by the watery moon, so tears are your birthright—embrace them. If you have even the smallest inkling that a proposal is nearing, be sure to carry around two-ply tissues and waterproof mascara.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
"I’m ready for my close-up, when will these shots be ready for the ‘gram?"
You live life like it’s a Hollywood blockbuster and you’re the breakout star, so when all eyes are on you for your proposal, you’re in your sunny element. Hopefully your love knows you well enough to hire an engagement photographer to capture snaps worthy of your social media.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)
"That was the world’s most perfect proposal. I just wish *insert tiiiny detail* had been different."
It’s no surprise that you’re a perfectionist, Virgo. (Like, have you ever seen a Beyonce concert?) So, when it’s time for your love to pop the question, you might find yourself warring between your earth mother/flower child self that’s excited for the prospect of marriage and your nit-picky, perfectionist side that finds fault in, well, everything.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)
"Let’s shake on this life partnership and look forward to a fair and equitable life together."
It’s not that Libras don’t have feelings (they’re there, we promise). It’s just that you’re much too in your head to give them too much space. Partnership comes so naturally to you (you were born in the sign of marriage, after all) that you always knew this was coming, so your focus after getting engaged is setting out to be sure things stay nice and balanced for your scales.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
"I’ll get around to an engagement announcement in the next year or so."
You’re fiercely private, Scorpio. Although you keep a tight inner circle, to the larger world, you’re a beautiful enigma. When it comes to big life milestones, you prefer to let the crowds see you when they see you, so we hope no one’s waiting with bated breath for updates on your intimate proposal.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
"So...wait. We’re doing the whole marriage thing? Forever? Always?"
It’s no secret to you that you like your freedom, Sag. While you’re in love with love and your fiery spirit draws lots of people to you, it can take a lot to get you to settle down. Don’t be surprised if your natural reaction to getting engaged is fear of being constrained. Relax! You’ve found your person and you can fly off to far-flung places together.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
"Alright! A whole year of arduous planning to look forward to."
Work is pretty much your thing, Capricorn, so when you get engaged it’s less about celebrating the moment (shocker), and more about getting right to the hard stuff. Lucky for you, there will be about a million tasks for you to complete between your dreadfully work-free proposal and the wedding day.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
"Oh, here’s this totally inventive and majorly cool way to announce our engagement."
Once you’re engaged, the proposal and wedding become your innovation canvas, Aquarius. An inventor by nature, you love to dream up big ideas that the rest of the world won’t catch on to for months or years to come. So, have all the fun with your engagement announcement — we know it’ll be a trend-setter.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
"OMG, this is better than all the cupcakes, puppies, and confetti in the world!"
A natural romantic, you’ve been dreaming of getting engaged since you were the perfect flower girl/ring bearer/adorable pint-sized wedding guest, and we know the moment won’t disappoint. You’ll be the one to immediately call your family and besties to gush about every single detail of your romantic proposal. Just make sure not to annoy your single pals!
