Ever spot someone across a crowded room and fireworks start flying? That mystery person has a neon-light aura, and you just know it: This is the one. But does that flash-of-lightning connection last? Or does it fizzle out just as quickly?
If it's a Uranian light-switch that gets flipped, then it's a magnetic attraction with a hint of risk. The romance will be great fun while it lasts, but it can turn off just as quickly as it came on.
A Pluto kind of instant attraction is very different. The energy from this type of connection suggests that the two of you were together in a past life -- soul mates through the ages. Unsurprisingly, this sort of relationship stands a better chance of lasting.
But love at first sight also depends on your Sun sign. The two most excitable Fire signs -- Aries and Sagittarius -- are quick leapers into romantic adventures. Celestial firestorms are their favorite setting for a romantic beginning, but both have fairly short attention spans, and need constant liveliness to keep the flames lit.
Oddly enough, Capricorn and Virgo (rather misnamed "cautious workaholics," both of them) have the greatest capacity for falling instantly and headlong into what turns out to be the match of a lifetime -- usually after a long period with no romantic attachments at all.
The Fixed signs -- Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius -- aren't happy when propelled at high speed into anything; instead, they prefer taking their time to decide. But Taurus and Scorpio will make an exception when it comes to the heart, and once they commit, that's it -- it sticks.
Gemini can fly with flash-bang speed into romantic adventures, although men of this Sun sign are more prone to doing so than women. The Twins also have an equally fast reverse/sideways gear that takes them elsewhere as soon as the novelty wears off!
Libra and Cancer are highly energetic when it comes to career and similar matters. But when it's about love, they're fiercely protective of their hearts and social reputation, and will ponder long and hard before letting on that they've been bowled over. More often than not, they'll pass up the chance for romance if it seems the slightest bit risky.
FInally, Pisces can be swept away on an ocean of enchantment and stay there for eons. Their ability to see what they want to see helps them keep passion rolling on and on, like an endless tidal wave.
