If you believe we're all connected to the Universe and beyond, as we are made up of the same stuff as the stars (they just shine a little brighter), then
you probably believe in astrology. Although astrology doesn't completely dictate who and what we are, the sign under which we're born definitely plays a roll in how we live our life, how we respond to things, and even our personality traits and quirks. This also means that astrology plays a hand in our sexuality, too.
more comfortable with a certain style of [sex], try dating a sign that's most likely to enjoy what you really crave," astrologer and psychic medium, Suzie Kerr Wright, tells Bustle. "There are so many societal expectations as to what is 'normal' that having validation that you're naturally inclined to feel a certain way about an experience as intimate as sex can help you relax into your natural desires."
But if you don't know much about astrology and how it
affects our love and sex lives, it can be difficult to find that natural desire and certain type of sex that's a fit. No worries; I have you covered. Here is the best sex position for each zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): The Ankle Choker
How to do it: While on your back facing your partner, who's on their knees, have your partner lift your hips so they can penetrate you while your butt is sort of resting on their upper thighs. Next, and this is the reason behind the name, place your legs on either side of your partner's neck so you can give it a squeeze. It's a great take charge sex position. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: Because, dear Aries, you're all about winning and being in charge, it only makes sense that this personality trait of yours would show up in the bedroom, too.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Missionary
How to do it: In case you need a refresher on this one, because it's been awhile, lay on your back, then have your partner lay on top of you, penetrating you from there. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: While you may have a reputation for being stubborn AF, Taurus, when it comes to sex, you want things romantic and sensual. Missionary is romance at its finest.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): The Crab Walk
How to do it: With both you and your partner in the crab walk position, facing each other, you want to get close enough so you can intertwine your legs and lower yourself onto them. Yes, it will involve finagling and communication. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: It's your sense of adventure, Gemini, that has you craving this position. It's as if you just want to be able to say you conquered such a difficult position as proof that you really are an adventurer at heart. Oh, and did I mention you like to show off, too?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Doggy With Vibrator
How to do it: While in traditional doggy style position — you on your hands and knees and your partner, also on their knees, penetrating you from behind, add a vibrator to the position for maximum pleasure. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: As a sign that's creative, but needs to be in a trusting and intimate relationship to let that creativity shine, doggy with a vibrator is a perfect fit for you, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22): Doggy Blowjob
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): X Marks The Spot
How to do it: While laying on your back on a flat surface, lift your legs, cross them, then have your partner penetrate you from a standing position. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: Virgo, in being practical, but also wanting to please, this is sex position that covers both those things, making it an ideal match for you.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): 69
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Legs Up
How to do it: While laying on a flat surface, roll your hips back, so your legs are almost behind you and your partner can penetrate you from there. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: In being a passionate lover, Scorpio, it's important to you that you lock eyes with the person whom you're having sex. But, in also not being run-of-the-mill, missionary isn't enough for you. That's why this position is what will make you the happiest.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): The Three-Legged Dog
How to do it: While standing and facing each other, have your partner lift one of your legs (holding it tightly), then penetrate you while in this standing position. You might want to do it close to something that you can reach out to for balance, if need be. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: Sagittarius, you're not just bold and adventurous, but have the need to explore. So while this position is definitely a good fit for you, what will make it even better for you is if you and your partner do it outside.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Cowgirl
How to do it: With your partner laying on their back, straddle their hips, then lower yourself onto them. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: As a sign that's both responsible and traditional, cowgirl works for you, Capricorn. You know you're responsible for your own orgasm and cowgirl is still a pretty basic and traditional position.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Anal
How to do it: Although anal sex can be done in a few different positions, if you've yet to explore it, I'd suggest starting in the doggy style position. With lots of lube, of course. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: Aquarius, of all the signs, you're the most open-minded, creative, and the one most likely to buck conventionalities. Because of this, anal is definitely the position for you, because when you see something that's regarded as taboo, you want a part of it immediately.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20): In A Chair
How to do it: With your partner sitting on a very sturdy chair, while facing them, straddle them and lower yourself onto them. Then you'll want to start moving in a grinding sort of motion. Why it's the best sex position for your sign: Pisces, you're not just generous, but you want to make people comfortable and at ease — and nothing says comfy like having your partner take a seat while you do all the work. You're also intuitive, so it's paramount that you face your partner to get the most amount of pleasure out of the position.
While there isn't
only one great sex position for every zodiac sign, these particular positions are definitely a great place to start. So, if you haven't tried them, now's the time to start exploring.
