Even if you're a bit skeptical about astrology, there's actually a lot we can learn from our astrological signs. We are, after all, linked to the Universe in which we live so it only makes sense that when we're born would have some sort of impact on our personalities, goals, love interests. And of course, our astrological sign affects our sex lives.
Take Virgos and their sexuality for example: "It really surprises me how aspects of the Virgo can shock other signs," Psychic Medium Imelda Green tells Bustle. "Perhaps the biggest takeaway that I have found, that really relates to [sex positions] is that Virgo tend to focus on technique at the expense of emotional connection. This obsession with positions can be overpowering for a Virgo when it comes to sex and it is definitely something to be aware of if you are a Virgo or even more importantly, if you have a Virgo lover."
And that's just the tip of the iceberg not just for Virgos, but for all the signs. After analyzing the traits and personality types of all the 12 astrological signs, I was able to deduce what sex position might be the best fit for each sign. So, if you're wondering why you've yet to find your favorite position, maybe it's because you don't know enough about your astrologic traits. Let's fix that right now.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): The Crab Walk
How to do it: First, have your partner get into the crab position. Next, get you'll get into the crab position, but with your partner's legs over yours, so you're locked together. From here, you can lift yourself up and lower yourself onto them.
Why: Aries are pretty stubborn. Where they thrive is in competition and determination. These components mean they always finish what they start, because failure isn’t an option for them. Because the crab walk position is for show-offs and Aries doesn't believe in failure, it's like this position was made specifically for them.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): The Side Straddle
How to do it: With your partner flat on their back, have them bend one leg. Straddle that bent leg while lowering yourself onto them. This position is all about excellent clitoral stimulation.
Why: If you take the stubbornness of Aries and multiply it by, say, 100 you get one of Taurus’ defining traits. Although stubborn to the core, Tauruses are also reliable, sensual, and practical. With all these characteristics, Taurus and the side straddle go hand-in-hand.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): 69
How to do it: Whether you choose traditional 69 or side 69, for this position, it's all about facing the opposite direction as your partner and orally stimulating each other at the same time.
Why: With their two personalities trapped into one, Geminis can be all over the place. They can be just as into fun as they are into seriousness, and just as communicative in what they want, as they are indecisive. This duality makes many of them gravitate toward the arts.
Because Gemini can be one way and a completely opposite way just moments later, the giving while receiving that comes with 69 makes perfect sense for this sign.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Belly-To-Belly
How to do it: While on your sides facing each other, drape your leg over your partner, pull them in as close as possible, and let the intercourse begin.
Why: Oh, Cancer, the sentimental fools of the astrological signs. Not only are they sentimental, which can be endearing, but they’re sensitive, emotional, and tend to get attached very easily.
The intense emotions that those who are Cancer carry with them every moment of every day means that only an extremely intimate position will do. Things don't get more intimate than belly-to-belly.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22): Woman On Top
How to do it: With your partner either seated or lying down, straddle them and take charge of the situation.
Why: Leos like to be at the helm of everything. They’re self-confident, usually get what they want, and for the rest us, extremely difficult to resist. They also have some hefty expectations of others and themselves.
Leos need to be in charge, which means that the best positions for them are the likely the ones in which they're completely in control. You can't get much more in control than being on top.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): X Marks The Spot
How to do it: Lie down on a flat surface, put your legs up in the air, and cross them at the ankles. From a standing position, your partner is to penetrate you while using your legs as leverage. You can reach around and pull their hips, so as to create a deeper sensation.
Why: Virgos are a responsible bunch. They pay attention to details unlike any other sign, and approach everything methodically and with much analysis. They’re very organized and want everything around them to follow in that organization.
Because details and organization are the name of the game with Virgos, it just feels right that a position involving an X would suit their sexual needs.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Modified Doggy
How to do it: While flat on the bed with your legs slightly apart, have your partner entering you from this angle. You can either stay flat or prop yourself up a bit; whatever feels best.
Why: Libras tend to be fair in all their dealings. They like to maintain a sense of peacefulness, are easily inspired by beauty, and although they do like balance, they put quality over quantity.
Since Libras put quality over quantity and enjoy a nice balance, modified doggy is the position for them. Both partners equally enjoy it, and it's definitely a quality position.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Anal
How to do it: Whether your decide to do it in the missionary position, doggy style, or spooning, the only difference with anal is that your partner is penetrating your butt, as opposed to your vagina. (Don't forget the lube!)
Why: Of all the signs, Scorpio is the one who must, at all costs, uncover the truth. They’re passionate and brave, and no one keeps a secret quite like a Scorpio. Sadly, anal sex still remains taboo — and taboos are made for secrets. So, this position for Scorpios is pretty obvious.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): The Seated Backbend
How to do it: While your partner is seated upright with their legs out, straddle them and lower yourself onto them. Next, lean backward so you're back is parallel with their legs, as you bend your knees so your feet and head are going in the same direction.
Why: Those born under the Sagittarius sign are constantly looking of the meaning of life. They do this by traveling constantly and looking at life with both idealism and humor. As optimistic extroverts, Sagittariuses thrive on change. With their need to spice things up and explore the unknown in the hope of finding answers, a tricky position like the seated backbend, will definitely appeal to the Sagittarius' nature to keep changing.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Missionary
How to do it: Simply, lie flat on any surface with your partner on top of you while they penetrate you. Definitely the easiest and most traditional position in the world.
Why: Capricorns are the traditionalists of the group. They’re professional, disciplined, and practical, making them, by far, the most serious of all the signs. Self-control should actually be their middle name.
Serious and traditional? Well, there's no other sex position that screams both of these quite like missionary.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Mutual Masturbation
How to do it: Have both you and your partner get into your comfy spots and proceed to masturbate in front of each other. Hot, right?
Why this position? People born under the Aquarius sign tend to be rebels, deep-thinking, intellectuals who really value their independence. They also enjoy and need alone time.
As people who value solo time and intellect, mutual masturbation is a great fit for the Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Seated Oral
How to do it: Have your partner sit in a chair. Then, from a kneeling position, burrow your head into their genitals and proceed to give them some fantastic oral action.
Why: Pisces are a selfless bunch of people. So selfless in fact, that they what they give, they don’t even expect to get in return. They’re also friendly AF. So if Pisces are so selfless and so friendly, it only makes sense that they would prefer a position in which they're the ones totally on the giving end of things.
While these sex positions might be a great fit for you based on your astrological sign, at the end of the day, sex is still about exploring. So if you've never tried the ones that line up with your sign, give them a try. Then, when you're done, try another position for another sign. For all you know, your parents could have forgotten when you were born and maybe you're more anal than crab walk — you never know.
