When it comes to giving and receiving love,how affectionate you are might have something to do with your zodiac sign. While some signs enjoy date nights, hand holding, and cuddling for hours on end, others tend to hold back a little. And since we're talking about astrological signs, this has everything to do with personality, as well as inherent strengths and weaknesses.
"Different signs have ... different gifts and struggles," Juliana McCarthy, author of the forthcoming book, The Stars Within You, A Modern Guide to Astrology, tells Bustle. And the ones that really seem to have the affection thing down tend to be that way due to their ruling planet. "Libra and Taurus are naturally affectionate because they are ruled by Venus — planet of love," she says.
While the zodiac signs listed below are natural born lovers, that doesn't mean other signs can't get in on the action. "In fact, every sign can love beautifully and give and receive ample affection depending on who they are with and how their partner’s style blends with their own," McCarthy says. "But while Libra and Pisces could be with just about anyone, other signs may have to try harder to find a suitable mate who can skillfully draw out their affections."
Once you find a partner who jives with you romantically, the two of you can share the love in a way that suits you both. But if you happen to be someone who craves affection, in every sense of the word, these are the four signs to look out for since they'll likely be all about it, too.
