Humans have studied their own sexual proclivities for thousands of years — and at times, astrology has been incorporated into these scholarly analyses. So what can the stars say about your own libido? According to the teachings of astrology, your sun sign is determined by your date of birth and represents your core personality.
This placement is only the beginning of a deeper astrological profile, but it can reveal your general attitude towards sex: what turns you on, how you set the mood, and your unique style of doin’ it.
While some signs prefer a slower, more sensual approach to seduction (Taurus, Cancer), others are extremely aroused by hair-tousling, “do me now” passion (Aries, Scorpio).
Some signs unleash their deepest desires within the safety of a bedroom with curtains are drawn (Virgo, Capricorn), while others are turned on by the sheer question, “Why don’t we do it outside?” (I’m looking at you, Sagittarius and Aquarius.) And, of course, some signs use sex as an opportunity to reveal their amazing performative versatility (Leo, Gemini), while others use lovemaking to explore erotic harmony (Libra, Pisces).
Whatever your approach to sex, astrology can help you map your unique range of carnal impulses. Ahead, discover what your sun sign says about your bedroom vibe, as well as tips and positions to put into practice tonight.
For an even more nuanced breakdown, find out your Venus and Mars signs and read for those, too. Venus represents what we look for in a partner (the preferred styles of our lovers), and Mars is the planet of energy, action, and lust. Hubba hubba.
