From differing sex drives to diverse fantasies, discover how to improve sexual satisfaction in your relationship based on the qualities of your zodiac sign.
As any astrology buff knows, the position of each planet, as well as the sun, moon, and stars, can have a deep influence on human behavior. Each astrological or zodiac sign represents certain personality characteristics, which is why so many of us look to horoscopes for greater understanding and guidance in our lives.
A recent report shows the most common reasons people confer with the stars for advice, and questions about love and sex rank the highest. According to a study on search volume trends for astrology, inquiries about sexual compatibility quadrupled from 2017 to 2018. Interesting, huh?
What factors might cause such an increase? Well, more than one-third of Americans in a relationship are dissatisfied with their sex life. A survey of 1,000 Americans in relationships found that 34 percent of people were unable to rate their sex life as either “satisfying” or “very satisfying,” and 16 percent claim their current spouse or partner rarely or never satisfies them sexually.
Luckily, astrology offers a unique approach to achieving sexual satisfaction by detailing the sexual desires and preferences of each zodiac sign. While is may not solve all of your issues in the bedroom, it certainly is something to consider.
And as we move through the season of Scorpio which started on October 23rd and rules our sexuality, it’s a great time to take a closer look at what might be causing the disconnect between you and your partner during sex.
Here are a few ideas on how to improve your sex life, based on your partner’s sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As the first astrological sign of the zodiac, Aries are naturally born directors. You’re more likely to be the seducee than the seducer with this sign. However, Aries rules the head, one of our most erogenous zones; so if you’re aiming to please this self-assured sign, excite their mind and allow for spontaneous arousal.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Tauruses are the most sensual lovers among the signs. Igniting their physical senses, like taste, touch, sight, smell, and sound can make for the most gratifying experience in bed. Almost half of couples say a sex toy would make their sex lives more pleasurable, and a Taurus would agree, as toys can really highlight their tactile side.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The playful personality of a Gemini should be taken at face value. Geminis can become restless pretty quickly if their sexual experiences don’t match their need for a thrill. Sticking to “the usual” won’t suit this sign, so shaking things up with different sex positions will cater to their adventurous nature.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers crave an emotional connection fostered by comfort and security. One of the top reasons for not achieving sexual satisfaction is a lack of oral play. Oral sex requires a certain level of intimacy which can deeply please this sentimental sign, not to mention the physical response!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Much like the sun, which this sign is ruled by, Leos need to shine their light wherever they go. Although their need for admiration may appear as self-absorption, the lustrous Leo still seeks to impress their lovers. Given the fact that 20 percent of people worry if their partner is enjoying the sex, it’s likely that Leo’s biggest obstacle to sexual pleasure is distractedness.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The meticulous mind of a Virgo is what labels them as a perfectionist. Their need to over-analyze, paired with their fine-tuned attention to detail, could explain why those born under this sign have the most sex; they won’t stop until both partners are satisfied. Sex should ideally last at least 23 minutes to satisfy both partners, so quickies are not the way to win over a Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
With a personality centered on fairness, it couldn’t be more fitting that the scales of a balance symbolize the sign of the Libra. Keeping things fair between the sheets through frequent orgasms on both sides is the key to pleasing this sign’s strong need for harmony.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios possess a powerful presence illustrated through their passionate and fierce personalities. This sign wants to fully immerse themselves in every experience and time in the bedroom is no exception. Skimping out on foreplay is the quickest way to dissatisfy a Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The adventurous spirit of Sagittarius qualifies this sign as a free-spirit. Known for their independence, Sagittarians are natural born explorers and their desire for spontaneity means they don’t respond well to being held back. If a Sagittarius’ partner has insecurities about personal performance in bed, there’s a good chance it will hinder this sign’s sexual satisfaction.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
With discipline built into a Capricorn’s DNA, they’re likely to take things slow when it comes to intimacy. Don’t let the cautious tendencies of this sign trick you into believing they are emotionally unavailable; sometimes they’re just not in the mood. They may just need a little help to boost their libido to allow their minds to become more invested in intimacy.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
The most social among the zodiacs, Aquarians like intellectual stimulation, so a lack of communication can negatively affect their sexual enjoyment. They also love unusual, unexpected experiences so don’t be afraid to introduce new ideas like imaginative role-playing to satisfy this sign.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The highly emotional, yet compassionate personality of a Pisces defines them as the hopeless romantics of the zodiacs. Because Pisces are sensitive and intuitive, their quest for satisfaction in their sex lives relies on emotional reassurance. To really please a Pisces, show them some affection by cuddling after sex.
Remember, your Sun sign is just one component in your astrology chart. Though it’s a powerful one, you’ll want to look at all the other planets and signs in your astrological make-up as well.
And astrology aficionado or not, a satisfying sex life always demands communication and an understanding of sexual needs between partners. Discovering practices to meet sexual desires promotes sexual responsibility by opening the floor to discussions surrounding sexual health.
Discussing sexual health with your partner or a healthcare professional is a key component in maintaining your overall physical and mental well-being.
Be open with your partner about concerns like poor diet and habits like smoking that may be hindering not only your sexual health, but your overall health in general.
Do some exploring on your own… there are great websites that can give you more information on questions to ask and ways you can take control of your sexual health. Then go have some fun with your sweetie!
