Turns out, the stars might be onto something when it comes to your love interests, as it's safe to say sexual chemistry is a pretty important part of a relationship. And there are certain sexual traits and strengths you might have in the bedroom that can either turn your partner on or off, depending on his or her sign. Of course, this isn't to say that if you're a Sagittarius you shouldn't immediately turn away from a Cancer.
But be warned, you might naturally have steamier sex with an Aries, Gemini, Leo, or Aquarius. Still, no matter which sign you do choose to "woo," taking a peek into your partner's sexual tendencies can help you better understand likes and dislikes and how best to be in sync. So, what to expect? We chatted with astrologer Valerie Mesa for a few tips. Hopefully, not only will sex be more enjoyable, but also that passion will carry over into other areas of the relationship to create greater intimacy and trust.
Aries' warrior-like personality is aggressive and impulsive. And, don't be surprised if they take you in the heat of the moment. In the bedroom, Aries wants to completely dominate their partner.
Their sex is intensely passionate and animalistic," says Mesa. And, no matter the gender, Aries likes to take charge. One thing is for sure: Aries loves the chase. Just make sure you don't keep an Aries waiting for too long; they'll get antsy. Best match for sex: Ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, those born under the sign of the twins long for intellectual conversations with a high dose of mental stimulation, says Mesa.
And, Gemini keeps sex pretty light and fun. The twins want to play a love game, and rest assured, they will seduce you in the process," says Mesa. In the bedroom, both Gemini man and woman seek thrill and experimentation.
But, this air sign approaches sex differently than the rest of the zodiac. Oh, and bring on the sexting and the dirty talk! Words are a crucial part of their seduction technique, she explains.
What does that mean, exactly? Ruled by the changeable moon, this water sign is a walking vortex of dreamy nostalgia and repressed feels," says Mesa. For Cancer, being in love consists of serious commitment and deep emotional intimacy , so don't be surprised if they aren't into casual flings or animalistic sex.
But, when comfortable and secure, the moonchild is sensual and deeply erotic," she says. Passionate and submissive, Cancers will completely give themselves to their partner in the bedroom. Ruled by the sun, those born under the sign of the lion are blessed with glowing charisma and an incredible presence, says Mesa.
Don't be shocked if a Leo lights up a room. Your Leo might expect admiration in the bedroom - but once you can see what Leo can do, you might be willing to give that praise, after all. Flaunting their goods is a must when in relationships, and they expect their partners to do the same.
Making love is an epic performance, and sexual fantasies are more than welcome," Mesa says. Sex with a Leo is far from normal - it's cinematic.
Here are a few tips for that powerful orgasm. Ruled by planet Venus, goddess of love and beauty, those born under the sign of the bull like to take their sweet time indulging in the pleasures of life, says Mesa. Yet, "don't be fooled by their serene disposition - Taurus is stubborn and incredibly determined.
Sensual and straightforward, this earth sign sees the world with its five senses and expresses sexuality through intense physical contact," says Mesa. And, they'll shower you with affection and romance. If you're a sucker for rom-coms, listen up. Raw and earthy, the bull wants a partner who likes to cook just as much as they like to cuddle. Just like that meal. Ruled by Mercury, the Virgoan mind is methodical and analytical; hence their sharp precision and attention to detail," says Mesa.
While in Astrology, the Virgin represents the sign Virgo, but when it comes to relationships, that Virgin lets loose, once comfortable. Take a shower before. Or, you can even have sex in the shower , too. Ruled by Goddess Aphrodite, Libras feel their best when surrounded by beauty, and finding the perfect balance is their ultimate goal. But, here's the tricky part. Falling in love with Libra isn't the problem - it's getting Libra to fall in love with you that's the challenge, says Mesa "Those born under the sign of Venus' scales are blessed with the art of seduction, so turning them on isn't going to be as easy as you think.
If you're interested in a Libra man, let him do the chasing. For them, sex isn't nearly as important as feeling happy and fulfilled in the relationship.
Dress to impress and bathe yourself in your most expensive perfume. Falling in love with you is their favorite part," advises Mesa. So, they might hide their rawness under a cloak of fears and deep mystery, using intimidation as a factor in sparking intrigue and heat.
Their life is an all or nothing experience, and their love life feels like a scene from Bram Stoker's Dracula," says Mesa. Connecting mind, body, and soul, when in love, this water sign throbs with desire and blood-red passion, and in the bedroom, they are carnal and taboo, says Mesa. Read Fifty Shades Of Gray in preparation and pick out a few fetishes to try. And, guess what - seducing this fire sign isn't going to be difficult. What you see is what you get, and games are simply out of the question," says Mesa.
Unless they are playful, sex games, of course. Natural thrill-seekers, spontaneous sex, and adventurous fantasies turn them on. And, don't be afraid to ask your Sag to try out some new moves. Before taking a Capricorn to bed, he or she might want to get to know you better first and develop that intimate connection. This earth sign needs to know exactly where they stand when in a relationship, otherwise it's going no where," says Mesa. And, traditional and conservative, Capricorns resemble the sexual tendencies of that of a classic, Hollywood film.
So, something to expect? Before getting to the bedroom, Cap might turn on some Mozart and open a bottle of fine wine, but once they start, it easily can turn into an all-nighter, says Mesa. The endurance of a Capricorn is pretty strong. Ruled by revolutionary Uranus, those born under the sign of the water bearer are natural-born visionaries and intellectuals.
But, as they are logical and detached, Aquarius can easily be misunderstood," says Mesa. Similar to their sister sign Gemini, this air sign needs lots of conversation and mental stimulation before getting intimate.
But, once you've locked that in , you're in for a treat, says Mesa. But be warned - commitment isn't necessarily Aquarius-friendly, she says, as Aquarius value independence and freedom. So, they might be more inclined for a "friends with benefits," first, perhaps, or just want to keep things looser before getting too serious. And, they love to experiment and act on that wild, free-spirited passion, but that emotional detachment can still be present.
So, they might appear highly mysterious and in tune with their surroundings. And being empathetic, Pisces feels best when they're emotionally healing those around them, she adds.
So, when in love, Pisces is romantic and seductive. Their partner's needs come first and similar to their sister sign Scorpio, they long to merge both physically and spiritually," Mesa says.
Don't be surprised if Pieces is incredibly seductive. Water is their kryptonite and half-asleep morning sex is a must," Mesa adds. So, you might want to save that coffee run for an hour or so after waking up.
