If you believe in astrology, you already know that your sign says a lot about you…including what you're like in bed, and what kind if sex gives you your jollies. int
Allure’s astrologer Aliza Kelly Faragher wrote an incredibly detailed and comprehensive sex guide for each of the 12 zodiac signs, and included very useful facts on where their erogenous zones are, and what their favorite positions are.
“While some signs prefer a slower, more sensual approach to seduction like Taurus and Cancer, others are extremely aroused by hair-tousling, 'do me now' passion such as Aries and Scorpio,” she wrote.
“Whatever your approach to sex, astrology can help you map your unique range of carnal impulses.”
And so, if you believe in living your life according to the stars and want to try divining your sex life with astromancy, this is the ultimate sex guide for you.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
"When it comes to sex, they’re turned on by impulsive, rapid bursts of passion that leave both partners wondering, What the hell just happened? — in a good way.
"These pants-dropping, skirt-hiking fire signs are no stranger to quickies in unusual places, so don’t be surprised if your Aries lover wants to experiment with sex outside of the bedroom."
Side note: The best sex actually happens outside of the bedroom (science says so), so you should really give it a try.
"Aries rules the head, so ask your Aries partner if they’d be into some extra hair-tousling, scalp-rubbing, or ponytail-pulling — chances are the answer will be an enthusiastic yes.
"These hot-blooded warriors should experiment with moves from behind: This sexy animalistic posture is perfect for impromptu trysts and sudden eruptions of desire.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
"Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This Venusian sign is literally the most sensual of the zodiac, as its libido is closely connected to sound, sight, taste, smell, and touch.
"Sex is an extremely physical, full-body experience for the Taurus lover: This sign is aroused by sultry massages, delectable aphrodisiacs, and clean, smooth linens.
"Taurus’ most erogenous zone is the neck and throat area, so kisses or nibbles in this region will surely make any bull see red. Missionary position (with eye contact) is extra sexy for these sultry earth signs, so enjoy the nuances of this classic posture with your Taurus lover."
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
"Gemini are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, so when it comes to dirty talk, these twins wrote the book: They’re extremely turned on by detailed accounts of lovemaking…even as the act is underway.
"Switching positions frequently during sex is extremely arousing for these energetic lovers. And don’t forget that Gemini rules the arms, so any opportunity to pin down, hold on to, or cuddle up to these limbs is a massive turn-on."
Woo! Hooking up with a Gemini sounds like a good time.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
"Though Cancers can have casual sex, intimacy is on a whole other level for these sweet water signs. Cancer, which is symbolized by the crab, needs to be completely comfortable before emerging from its shell.
"Cancers must trust their partners to reach their pleasure potential, and for these crabs, loyalty is fostered by physical closeness. Cuddling, spooning, and hand-holding — Cancer rules the hands — allow Cancer to feel safe and protected before lovemaking begins.
"Cancer is ruled by the moon, and Cancer crabs are extremely erotic partners whose turn-ons switch according to the lunar cycle. They should experiment with sultry wraparound positions in which they can both make romantic eye contact and experiment with their movements."
Leo (July 22 - August 23)
"The biggest sexual turn-on for any Leo is to feel desired. Leos adore seduction (both giving and receiving) through lavish dates, over-the-top expressions of adoration, and grandiose romantic gestures. They purr at the very thought of being wanted, especially when that burning desire leads to passionate, dramatic lovemaking.
"Leo rules the heart and spine, so light caresses down Leos’ backs are a major turn on for these erotic wildcats. Leos should try seated positions in chairs (ahem, throne) for a theatrical sexual display that allows partners to share tender kisses while also finding their moment in the spotlight. (Lap dance, anyone?)"
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Contrary to the name, Virgos are not prudish virgins who blush and giggle at the thought of sex. In fact, they're the exact opposite.
"Virgos are like a horny teenagers — they positively fixate on sex. Virgos are constantly contemplating who’s doing it, who’s already done it, and when they’re going do it next.
"Virgos rule the stomach, so try running your nails gently across a Virgo’s belly for a volcanic effect. Experimental Virgos should consider reverse cowboy or cowgirl positions in order to really let loose."
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
"Libras value refined sensuality, so even the most flirtatious among them may insist on keeping the intimacy within the bedroom (fiery bathroom trysts are a little too crass for these elegant lovers).
"Between the sheets, they are extremely giving, but don’t be fooled by their kind generosity: They expect you to return all favors. These air signs rule the kidneys, so the lower back is a highly erogenous area for them."
And guess what? Libras are the masters of flirting and teasing, so you might be pleasantly surprised to find your Libra girlfriend is more than willing to do a little striptease, just for your enjoyment.
Oh, and they're also among the kinkiest in the Zodiac. Just FYI.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
“There’s no zodiac sign more closely associated with sex than Scorpio. These water signs are known for their spellbinding magnetism, sophisticated seduction techniques, and insatiable appetite for desire.
“Scorpios aren’t afraid to delve into power play and are aroused by explorations of dominance and submission. Fearless Scorpios should experiment with kinkier sex, including bondage."
With that said, Scorpios are also some of the kinkiest and sexiest people you'll ever hook up with. Seriously.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarians are "playful and optimistic, and usually have a carefree attitude when it comes to sex and intimacy.
"While these fire signs enjoy the raw physicality of lovemaking, their absolute favorite form of passion is exploration (with a hint of danger). Sag’s erogenous zone is the hips, so saddle up for an enjoyably rough ride with these equestrian fire signs.
"For an extra kick, move the intimacy outdoors: Public sex is a huge turn on for these wild horses, especially when there’s the added thrill of being caught."
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
"The most ambitious sign of the zodiac, Capricorn lovers approach sex with determination and dedication," and "can appear unemotional or detached when it comes to romance, moving extremely slowly at first.
"But when a sea goat finally feels at ease, it reveals itself to be among the freakiest lovers of the zodiac. Kinky Capricorns should explore role-playing. This mentally freeing play allows Caps to venture into their mysterious sexual psyches, acting out fantasies that will bring sea goats to their knees (which happens to be the body part ruled by Capricorn)."
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians "tend to seek unconventional lovers and enjoy intimacy that doesn’t follow a script: Aquarians are rebels at heart, so they’re turned on by anything that breaks the rules."
"They should consider experimenting with sex toys — their planetary ruler, Uranus, also governs technology, so the latest revolutions in sex gadgets are sure to get their hearts beating faster. Aquarius also rules the ankles, so it’s no surprise that these upside-down thinkers enjoy being flipped in the sheets."
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
"With this deeply psychic emotional profile, Piscean sex is extremely spiritual," and "the act of intercourse is a magically transcendent experience" for many Pisceans.
"Pisces rules the feet, which carry the weight of the world, so a steamy foot massage will surely prompt the siren’s song. Pisces lovers should explore the benefits of tantric sex: By focusing on breath, movement, and harmony, they can erotically explore both their physical bodies and subconscious minds."
