Each zodiac sign has different traits that make them unique. The signs can play a role in the way we live and the way we have sex. Whether your sun sign is a fire sign, full of passion and energy, an earth sign, grounded and hard-working, an air sign, logical and social, or a water sign, intuitive and emotional, there is something we can learn about intimacy from them.
It’s okay if you don’t know your sign! You can learn a bit about your sign’s connection to intimacy as you continue reading. Here’s a guide to sex positions for each sign, based on their traits.
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Aries, you start the astrological calendar, ruled by Mars and the God of war, Ares. You know what you need and when you need it; you’re not afraid to make yourself known to others. The position, Table Top, fits well for you as it gives you your desired control over your partner. This position allows for eye contact and flexibility. Look and Learn is another position fit for an Aries. As you know what you need you are able to give that to yourself when you please. Grab a mirror or sit in front of one and watch what you can do for yourself.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Ruled by Venus and Aphrodite, the Goddesses of love and beauty, you are passionate and love the finer things in life. A luxurious experience may be calling you. For you, Golden Arch is the position to try. This position will give you close contact with your partner while facing each other. It is intimate but exciting all at the same time. The Chairman is another position for you. With this, you and your partner can experience any level of passion you see fit for your needs. With your symbol being the bull, take a seat on your partner’s lap facing away from them and enjoy the ride.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Mercury and the messenger god, Hermes, guide you, Gemini. You are enthusiastic and flexible in many situations. Communication with your partner may come easy for you, so tell them you need to do these positions: Seashell and 69. Seashell will allow you to engage your literal flexibility into your sex life. It’s missionary, but better. With 69, you and your partner can both communicate your needs to each other, while both being pleasured. It’s a win-win for the both of you.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Cancer, you’re ruled by the Moon, the center of emotions. A protective role in your relationships calls your name. You’re a creature of habit and like what you know. Missionary is a classic and intimate position, one that is easy to do out of habit. To continue your ‘ride’ of emotions, try Cowgirl. This is another intimate position that can often induce more emotions from both you and your partner. Try leaning forward or leaning your partner forward in this position to create a more emotional experience.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Ruled by the Sun, Leo, you have a fiery personality. You love the spotlight because it gives you the opportunity to be bright and loud. As a generous sign, you may like to spend extra time pleasuring your partner. You can exude your confidence with your partner doing 69. Take the lead and get on top of your partner and let them pleasure you, while you pleasure them. Another position you can use to display your confidence is Cowgir’sl Helper. Both you and your partner can take control during this position.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Virgo you’re ruled by Mercury, the god of communication. Being a perfectionist is a key trait that will play into your intimacy. You’re open to change and are easily able to communicate that to your partner. Instead of having sex on a bed or flat surface, try it standing up. The Upstanding Citizen is the perfect position to switch things up. Because communication is your strong suit, try phone sex. It’s all about dirty talk!
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Similar to Taurus, you are ruled by Venus and Aphrodite, the gods of love and beauty. Libra you are the scales, you seek balance in your life and in your relationships. You're a sucker for romance, so Missionary is the position for you. In this position you can feel connected to your partner in a more intimate way. Wrap your arms around your partner and to spice it up, throw a pillow under your partner’s bottom. Another position to channel your love for intimacy is Face-off. Sit in your partner’s lap/grab your partner and sit them on your lap and face each other. Enjoy the eye-contact and closeness you and your partner experience.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Scorpio, you’re ruled by Pluto and controlled by the god of the underworld. You are mysterious and accept the darker sides of life. Your limits are your friend. You aren’t afraid to push yourself in exploring your boundaries and the boundaries of others. To keep the mysterious side of you alive, try working with positions where you are not facing your partner. For example, Doggy and Scoop Me Up. During both of these exciting positions you and your partner can experiment by adding an alluring amount of dirty talk.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
As an adventurous sign, Sagittarius, you love to learn new things. You’re ruled by Jupiter, the planet of fortune, so maybe new things come easily to you. A new position for you could be the Wheelbarrow. Get creative with where you do this one. Learn new things about yourself and dive into the realm of you and your partner’s psyche. Get in the bathtub either by yourself or with your partner and start feeling each other up with Bubble The Fun.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Capricorn, you’re ruled by Saturn, the planet of austerity. You are stern with your mannerisms, which makes you a leader. Time is not a concern to you, you like to take your time on tasks to ensure efficiency. Reverse Cowgirl can be your moment to take control, whether it's from the top or the bottom. Let the top control for a while and then the bottom can switch up positions, making the most of your experience. Circle Perk is a great solo position for you to take your time with yourself. Give yourself the pleasure you desire.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of sudden change, you can make your intimate moments fun with an array of positions. This trait of yours matches well with any emotional withdrawal you may experience. Doggy is the position for you. In this position you can focus on pleasuring yourself and your partner. Aquarius, your independence allows you to take control of situations, or in this case, positions. Woman Astride is a position where you can remain independent. Change is easy for this position as simple movements can change angles and create a better experience.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Pisces, you are the dreamer of the signs. Ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion, you are due for some of your fantasies to come true. You are able to easily adapt to situations around you with no boundaries. Pretzel Dip is a fun new position for you to try with your partner. Let your mind run wild and have your partner stimulate your sensitive areas. To channel the side of you that is the dreamer, try the Couch Grind. Get yourself up on the arm of the couch and start moving your hips.
