When it comes to sex, chemistry is everything.
While sex is one part primal urge, it's another part romance and physical attraction. And because the zodiac often helps you discover the best partner and relationship pairings, why not let it help you in the bedroom, too?
For the ultimate experience between the sheets (or anywhere, really...) BRIDES spoke with Kyle Thomas, resident astrologer at Love by Luna.
Here are the best sex positions for your zodiac sign.
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19): THE LEADER
Active: Missionary Aries are known for their hunger for power, so domination and leadership hit the mark. Try out some light direction through verbal foreplay and then make sure your lover is on their back. Ask them to look you in the eyes during the act.
Passive: King When it comes to a bottom, you’re always on top. Ride. It. You can control the speed and the duration.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): MARRIAGE MATERIAL
Active: Servant Devour your lover like they are your favorite meal. You want to own and possess your partner, so find wine and dine them and then throw them up on a countertop to get nasty. Show them you appreciate them with your tongue.
Passive: Adoni Demand pleasure that takes a long time to complete. But also romance them back. You’ll like it on your back so you can hold them, but don’t ever forget to just worship your partner sometimes.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20): THE DRAMATIC ONE
Active: Teacher You might want a quickie, but when it comes to 24/7, you’ve gotta spice it up. Visual delight is empowered through your words. Start by dirty talking, and then put your partner in a new situation they aren’t used to (make sure they consent).
Passive: Student You want to taste adventure and danger, and you love to fly and taste new horizons. You’ll ride the animal as long as they keep talking dirty.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): THE ONE WHO IMPACTS YOU
Active: The Giver The thing about your sexuality is that you have to shed your walls and feel safe first. So if you can do that, enjoy the “flying buttress.” This allows you to hold your lover while you feel in control; soon they'll feel like home.
Passive: Receiver Face your partner. Kiss them. You need sensuality to function, as well as intellect, passion, sensitivity, and kindness. If it’s just a hook-up, try to shut your heart off for one second and praise your inner sex.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): THE DRAMATIC
Active: The Savage Look in the mirror. And then have sex in front of it. Start in 69 and then penetrate them in the same position. You can look back at your audience and enjoy the show.
Passive: The Hunter It’s all about your roar, Leo, so be as loud as possible. No one knows if you didn’t scream it. You deserve to be seen, and you love the dramatics.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTMEBER 22): THE PERFECTIONIST
Active: The Savior You are a perfectionist, and you know exactly how to worship your partner. You are drawn to someone who is fiery and has a vision, even if it’s not “just right.” Your soul wants to make your little fire create an explosion, and that is why you listen and get caught up in your thoughts for how it “should be.” Lick every inch of your lover’s body so that it becomes a new religion.
Passive: The Acolyte You are so in tune with your physical and emotional needs that if someone doesn’t match them, you can still fully embrace it. But nobody likes passion that is weak. Ask your partner how they like to be touched and then do it. Repeatedly. Fingering will be something you do excellently.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22): THE MIRROR
Active: The Romantic When it comes to hot sex, you always have a flair for the sensual and romantic because you are ruled by Venus. This makes you great in bed. A fantastic position for you would be side-saddle, so swoop up behind your boo and be sure to watch yourselves in the mirror. It’ll make you unite even closer, and you’ll enjoy the visual display.
Passive: The Sub Your passive and vulnerable nature is truly erotic, and you crave to have your partner dominate you. However, you are only truly fulfilled when you’re being of service and worshipping your better half. Try (lots of) oral sex.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21): THE SEX GOD
Active: The Beast You get off on games of control and you desire to have your ego stroked, as well as your whole body. You enjoy pushing the limits so that your boo has no doubts you're the best in bed. For this reason, you will enjoy the plow with their legs up in the air so you can penetrate them harder and deep. You’ll demand they stare you in the eyes and you’ll be the first to dirty talk, as well. Use controlling verbal commands and demand they call you royalty. Even consider filming it (only if they consent, of course).
Passive: The Kinky One You'll also, surprisingly, enjoy being dominated so give anal a try.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21): THE HORSE
Active: The Quickie Of all zodiac signs, Sagittarius likes to get in and out as fast as possible. This means that sexually they’re more focused on a quick release so things feel fast, passionate, and spontaneous. A good way to channel this energy is in doggy. Having your lover with their booty up will feel primal, nasty, and dangerous.
Passive: The Cowgirl Half-human, half-horse, the Sagittarius is represented by the centaur. This means you naturally love to gallop and venture around. To use this energy sexually, be sure to ride your partner so they are like a mighty steed. This will unleash your animalistic side.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19)
Active: The Ice King/Queen It takes quite awhile to get a Capricorn to warm up, especially in the romance department. But they are known to have a very indulgent and horny side, as well. To fully awaken their lust, they need a slow and sensual build using oral so they can finally be ready to take the reins.
Passive: The Controlling Sub You like to be pleasured exactly how you like to be pleasured, so it is likely you will be coaching your lover through the motions. Control is important to you, especially speed, depth, and timing. It is highly likely you control your sex life together because if you’re not in the mood, there’s no way to shift it, but if you’re horny, you demand it instantly. For these reasons, you’d do well with the ankle choker, which is when you’re on your back and your partner is standing with your ankles around their neck.
This easily allows you to control their hips to your delight.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): THE SPONTANEOUS ONE
Active: The Quirky Top Of all the signs, you do require mental stimulation to get you hot and bothered. You also tend to have some fetishes that are crucial to get you going. Try anal play and new things that may seem a bit out of the ordinary, as you’re open to experimentation and new forms of pleasure.
Passive: The Moaner You like a bit of show and watching yourself be penetrated, so the crab walk is ideal for the passive Aquarius lover. This mirror image works well for you, and it helps you to work in tandem.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): THE DREAMER
Active: The Sensitive You crave sensitivity and emotion in sex, which is why you are one of the most feminine and sensual tops around. This isn’t a bad thing whatsoever, as it makes you almost telepathic with your lover. You can intuitively know what they want and where they want it. The three-legged dog works well for you because you can feel close.
Passive: The Player You’re always excitable, carefree, and easily-aroused. You want to make sex feel like play-time. Role-playing can get you going, especially if it includes some imaginative design. And shower sex or sex anywhere near water will create a slippery but sexy appeal.
