The Five Love Languages
Well, what is a love language? A love language is a term that describes how we receive and give love to each other. According to Gary Chapman’s book, The Five Love Languages, the love languages are:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of service
- Quality time
- Physical touch
- Receiving gifts
Astrologers have found that some of these languages may appear more frequently with some star signs than with others. Here is a short list of the star signs and their corresponding love languages:
