Most of us get into astrology because we want to know more about our romantic relationships. And sure, finding a soulmate is great, but what about just having a good time in bed? Here’s how to have the best sex of your life, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Be more selfish
Aries are known for their healthy self-esteem, but they could certainly ask for more of what they want in bed. The more an Aries plays up their inner brat, the more pleasure they get. Aries also may want to try some roleplay for added drama.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taureans are romantic, sensual creatures. Bulls have their physical touch game down to a science. But what about dirty talk? Or even sexting? When a Taurus puts their sexual desires into words, they unlock the next level of pleasure. The mind is another erogenous zone.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Environment is everything
Always running a mile a minute, it’s hard for Geminis to ever slow down and relax enough to have great sex. This is why environment is key. The temperature in the room needs to be just right, the sheets need to be made of the highest quality linen and the sex playlist needs be on point so that a Gemini can revel in the here and now…and get it on.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Embrace your kinky side
Cancers have a somewhat matronly reputation, so people might assume that our crab friends are happy with vanilla sex. But being ruled by the moon, Cancers are more inclined to follow whims than stick to a routine, especially in bed. The more that Cancers embrace their kinks and share their dirty little secrets, the more satisfied they feel.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Bring out the sex toys
Leos love everything to be glamorous, elegant and sophisticated. But when it comes to sex, Leos really let loose when they remember that sex is play. Leos should experiment with all kinds of sex toys from the simple to the ridiculous, both solo and with a partner.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Take on the dominant role
Virgos love being of service, even in the bedroom. But what if Virgo dared to boss their partner around in bed? Taking on the dominant part in some dominant-submissive roleplay opens up a whole new area of Virgo’s sexuality and almost guarantees the best sex of their life.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Known for being flirty and romantic all the time, Libras could benefit from dropping their people-pleaser attitude and being a bit more, well, removed, in the lead up to sex. When a Libra really makes a lover work hard to get them in bed, the sex is just way hotter. Feeling wanted is always a turn on.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Switch things up
As much as Scorpios have a reputation for being the most sex-obsessed sign in the zodiac, as a fixed sign, they also tend to stick to what’s familiar. Scorpios who’ve fallen into a rut with their lover always benefit from switching things up. Knowing what works shouldn’t be undervalued but surprise really brings the heat.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Take more risks
Sagittarians are passionate lovers. These adventurous fire signs need some danger, a little risk-taking or even some exhibitionism in the bedroom. Nothing turns the archer on quite like getting freaky in that forbidden side room at the party where someone could walk in at any second.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Everyone knows Capricorn is the workhorse of the zodiac. But in the bedroom, all our goats need is some aromatherapy and a massage to get them in the mood. It’s especially hot for Capricorn to do some shower (or bath!) foreplay, experimenting with lotions and salves for an extra sexy (and exfoliating!) massage.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Open up your relationship
As a fixed sign, Aquarius is super loyal. Long-term relationships are absolutely no problem for the water bearer, and they know how to keep things interesting with their partner. But whether it’s inviting a third or experimenting with an open relationship, an Aquarians sex life with their primary partner gets even better when they bring others into the mix. Jealousy can be hot.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Treat foreplay like the main event
Pisces are the final sign of the zodiac, and they know more than anyone else that it’s the journey, not the destination, that really matters. Pisces is always down to make out, and in their opinion foreplay should be the main event.
