Looks like there will be a *lot* of orgasms in your future.
hether you’re hardcore into astrology or look at it more like an online “Which Friends character are you?” quiz, using your Zodiac sign as a sexual divination tool is all kinds of fun.
Here’s how: Start with what your sign is, as well as your partner’s. Move on to discovering each sign’s turn-on and turn-offs. (As a Leo, my turn-offs are the terms “turn-on” and “turn-off. Also insufficient worship.) If you’re still all in, see also: How to have the hottest sex according to your sign or do a little sex toy shopping with this guide on the best toys for your sign. And BTW: If you require a refresher about your sign here are each sign’s personality traits, and how to fix your “flaws” (or, shall we say, bonus personality traits)…if you want. We also have a head’s up about what astrology says is going to be happening for you in 2021 (let it be good, pleaseohpleaseohplease).
For more secret clues, you can also have a look at what going on in your 5th and 11th houses (or, look up wtf houses even are in the first place) “The 5th House represents the love and affection we give out and it also governs our attitude to sex. The 11th House represents the love (and sex) we receive from others,” says astrologer Clarisse Monahan. “For example, if you have Sagittarius on the 5th House cusp, you tend to be very adventurous in your sexual approach, however if you have Capricorn on the 5th House cusp, you can tend to a cooler, more practical approach to sex, ie sex for sex sake.”
Here are some positions chosen specifically for your sign, but listen, if you are an Aries and want to do some of that Capricorn @#*%, go to town. And if you want even more ways to mix it up, you might want to check out our best sex tips of all time, no matter what sign you are.
The Fast and Furious
Aries are pretty emo and into passion and impulsivity, so pull your partner into a closet or bathroom at a party and start stripping down. (If you’re risk adverse, adjust to an in-home quickie). “Rub the back of their head with your full hand and grab their hair while looking at them deep in the eyes to create anticipation of what you’re going to do,” says sex coach Katherin Winnick. Hold their face, kiss them passionately and press them against the wall, running your hand down between their legs. Bonus: This also gets you another Aries craving, attention.
All Hands on Deck
Tauruses looooooooove being touched. Back rubs, neck rubs, basically anything that involves the touch of hands. Light a candle that melts into massage oil (practical!), as step one of your fiendish plan to acquire touch, then lie on your belly, noting that the candle does indeed turn into massage oil. Trade long massages then have slow face-to-face sex (penetration or masturbation both work) to satisfy your need for romance and all things cuddly. “You can try the infamous Tantric three hands massage where your third hand is… yes, that sexy bit of your body. Massage your partner using your three hands for extra naughtiness,” says Winnick.
Geminis are pretty freaky and the ultimate Gemini scenario would be a threesome. But if you’re not *quite* that Gemini you can jimmy-rig a threesome-esque situation. Lie on your side and have your partner penetrate vaginally or anally. Slide a dildo into the unoccupied hole. Instant double penetration, no awkwardness with your third after. “Duality and pleasure are primary focuses when making love,” says Brandon Stewart, a non-binary Hoodoo and Tarot Diviner. “Being present is key, but the major focus is the push and pull between partners. Geminis are the master to adapting to each situation and pulling out the sexual energy out of any sign”
The Breakfast Spoon
Cautious Cancers like to stay safe in their shells. (Like, that oversized hoodie you wear excessively? That’s so you.) A cuddly spooning position gives you the lovey vibes and skin-to-skin contact you crave, while letting you feel protected. “Grab your partner from the back using both arms for a cuddlier vibe, or use one hand to stimulate her clitoris,” says Winnick. (Go ahead and add literal vibes with a little bullet.) Even better is sleepy morning spooning. The intimacy will carry you throughout your day.
The Royal Table
Commence the you-worship with a tray full of items you wish to be used on you by your partner. Put out a tray topped with several kinds of sex toys, a really nice lube, maybe a blindfold, then lie back, encouraging your partner to see how wild they can drive you with their hands, mouth, and the tools you’ve thoughtfully provided. If vanity is part of your deal (yes), then watch the glory. “Position yourselves standing in front of a mirror so that you can both sneak a peek and play the role of both exhibitionists and voyeurs,” says Jess O’Reilly, PhD, Astroglide resident sexologist. Yup, major Leo vibes unlocked.
Focus on the Fuckery
Detailed-oriented Virgos can get a mega dose of detail with mindful sex. Find an uncluttered, clean space (Virgos love their clean) and take your time with your partner, really focusing on every thigh kiss, every breath, and exactly the way it feels when they first brush their hand across your clit. Try it with missionary and the experience is completely elevated. The more you pay attention, the better it gets. “As a Virgo, sex is a super important task, and I am always looking to be as pleasure-centric as possible in all of my encounters,” says writer Cheyenne Davis. “Anything grounding, including having sex in nature, is the best thing possible because it speaks to our Earth energy.”
The Double Double
Libras are sexually adventurous and love pleasing their partners. Get it all satisfied at once with a mutual toy like a double-ended vibrator. Sit on your partner’s lap and have each of y’all take an end and stick it in an orifice. Maybe a vag/clit combo, an anal/anal mix, whatever you want. Kiss and wiggle against each other, feeling your mutual vibes. “If they love positive feedback (because they love to please!), let them know exactly what and how you’re feeling. Describe every sensation, pulse, contraction, drip, movement and emotion to take them over the top,” says O’Reilly.
The Strip Tease
Scorpios are intense, controlling and super sexual, and BDSM is a great way to get to all of that. Whether you’re the one in control or the one who must submit, it’s the power play that you crave, so take either side of this bondage scenario: Blindfold your partner. Strip down slowly, letting them touch, smell or taste each new body part you reveal. “Spray some whipped cream or Nutella somewhere on your body and let him lick it clean,” says Winnick. Maybe give ’em a swat or two. Then make them beg before you put your mouth on them.
You love adventure and play, so public sex is a huge yes for you. But it’s also technically illegal, so comprise with a remote control sex toy your partner can fire up instead. See if you can get through dinner at a nice restaurant (or hell, even a crappy one) without actually moaning aloud while they control the toy inside your underwear. “Sagittarius are the adventurers of the zodiac. They’re also a bit hyper. If you’re adventurous, take them to a swinger club. They will love you for it!” says Jeanine Duval, astrology expert and co-founder of Edelwyn.
Stop and Go
Since you’re so driven and go-go-go, the best way to take the edge off is…edging. The delayed gratification and being made to wait until you can have an orgasm will get you to stop thinking about goals for a bit and just relinquish yourself to the experience. If your partner is not (yet) super great at figuring out when you’re close, hand them a vibrator with a tortuous setting that builds up, then stops. “Capricorns have a strong endurance level, so get ready for an all-night event,” entice/warn Michelle Welch and Ashlie Daniel, Astrologers at SoulTopia.
The Magic Carpet Ride
Free-thinking, rebellious Aquarius is the ultimate air sign, so take to the sky for weightless orgasms. A sex swing will hold you aloft while you have nothing to do but float above it all and feel your partner’s mouth on you. Midair orgasm? Yes, please. “The best sex swing position for beginners is a reclining position. It’s similar to missionary style sex you’d have in bed except on a swing. The person in the swing simply leans back while the standing partner enters them or stimulates their genital area,” says Tatyana Dyachenko, sex expert at Peaches and Screams. “Start with an easy position and work your way up to the more adventurous position. Also, make sure it’s correctly installed!”
Take to the water with some free-form bath sex. Light some candles, then use your hands to explore each other. Fill your hands with lube and stroke each other, going with the flow. (Use a silicone-based lube that won’t wash away. Water-based lube and actual water are no bueno for this—no offense, my little water sign.) Stuck on land? “Use oils, lube, or take a mouthful of champagne while going down on them,” suggests Duval.
