Time before moving in: Three years
Ideal property: Flat
People under the Aquarius star sign are independent and don’t like labels, so they won’t settle down after only a few months. They are very analytical so they will measure the pros and cons of living together before taking such a big step.
Three years is usually the ideal time for an Aquarius to move in with a significant other, as that will give them plenty of time to know if they are making the right decision.
They value connections with other people more than anything material, so a flat will be just enough for them to feel comfortable without going over the top.

Time before moving in: Two years
Ideal property: Terraced House
Pisces is a deeply intuitive sign, so you would think they would know straight away if they are with the right person. However, their logical sides are also very evolved, so they will not rush into a decision just because their gut feeling says it’s right. You can expect a Pisces to ask you to move in with them after approximately 2 years.
A Pisces will love a terraced house because he loves being surrounded by people, and that type of property will offer him or her just that!
Time before moving in: Three and a half years
Ideal property: Detached house
Just like Aquarius, Aries are known to be very independent people. They are overly blunt and that can sometimes cause issues in their relationships with others. It might take them up to three and a half years to feel ready to move in together with someone and give away some of that independence they cherish so much.
Because of their independent nature, a detached house would be ideal for them. While loyal to his/her friends, the Aquarius cherishes their time away from people.
Time before moving in: Three months
Ideal property: Cottage
People under the Taurus sign like stability and are the anchors of the zodiac signs. So perhaps it is no surprise that they would move in with their partners after just 3 months. As long as their partners are honest and don’t lose their trust, the relationship should work.
They are very hardworking and like to stay grounded. A cottage is what it takes to satisfy their needs when it comes to a home.
Time before moving in: One year
Ideal property: Semi-detached house
‘In love with love’ is one way to describe a Gemini. However, they won’t dive head first into a huge commitment like sharing a house. They are highly intelligent, and they will wait until they find the right person to take things forward with. When they think they have found the one, it will take approximately one year to move in together with them.
They are great friends, but they also cherish their alone time, and a semi-detached house describes their personalities perfectly!
All in good time: Sagittarius will likely take the longest to be ready to move in, with Andreea estimating it could be as long as six years. Stock image
Time before moving in: Six months
Ideal property: Bungalow
Cancers have a great intuition and they will know immediately when a person is right for them. They thrive in a relationship and, if things go well, why wait? A cancer would move in with their partner within the first 6 months if they could.
They are very family-orientated and are a grounded sign. They prefer cosy over glamorous, so a bungalow is perfect for them.
Time before moving in: Two and a half years
Ideal property: Duplex flat
Virgos are very hardworking and are often perfectionists. They will not stop until something is done right. That’s why it will take a while for them to let another person into their private space if they’re not sure whether they will ruin what they’ve worked for. Two and a half years is about the time a Virgo needs before trusting someone to live with them
They are extravagant and like grandeur when it comes to their surroundings, so ideally, a 2-level flat is what would satisfy their need for living big.
Time before moving in: Eighteen months
Ideal property: Flat
Leos are very passionate and always put their partners’ needs first. They don’t like everybody, but if a Leo chooses you as a partner, you’ll know they are truly fond of you. They love grand gestures and to be shown attention. One year and a half is enough for them to take this next step.
They like the city life and modern architecture, so they would probably prefer living in a flat.
Time before moving in: Eight months
Ideal property: Studio flat
Libras think they are quite good at directing their own lives, so if they see themselves with you in the long run, it won’t take them long to ask you to move in together, more precisely around 8 months.
Libras are attracted to intelligence rather than appearance, so when this translates to housing, they would be more than happy just with a studio flat, as long as it’s packed with books.
Time before moving in: Two months
Ideal property: Mansion
While a bit intimidating, Scorpios know what they want, and they want it now! If you manged to penetrate their thick shells, you’ll discover a loving and loyal person. Two months is enough for this sign to know they want to be living with their significant other.
Strong and outstanding, Scorpios demand respect, and the type of property that can match their personality can only be a mansion.
Time before moving in: Six years
Ideal property: End of terrace house
This sign is known for being very truthful, even if the truth will hurt the people around them, they don’t feel the need to sugar-coat anything. This could cause trouble in their relationship and may cause them to lose relationships quickly.
If you’ve been with them for several years then that might be enough time for them to see the relationship as long lasting, and they may ask their partners to move in together.
While they like their friends, they also need to have ‘me time’, so an end-of-terrace house would be perfect for them to be close to other people but at the same time have some space to themselves.
Time before moving in: Ten months
Ideal property: Converted flat
While some may call them stubborn, Capricorns in fact just know what they want, and they will work hard to achieve it, whether it’s in their professional or private lives. With a very corporate approach to love, they would sit down with a partner and discuss where the relationship is going.
They would probably need just under a year to decide if it’s time to move in together; and because they like having people around, a converted flat would be right up their alley.
