Astrology can help you to know all kinds of different things about your partner before you see it for yourself. When it comes to sex, a person's birth chart can show things like the type of partner they'll be attracted to. So if you're looking to know what kind of things will get your partner in the mood, knowing their zodiac sign can clue you in.
"When we're talking about our 'zodiac sign,' we're talking about the sign where the Sun was on the day we were born," astrologer Tiffani Purdy, tells Bustle. "The Sun talks about our most prominent traits, so that's the reason we use it as the 'main' sign in Astrology. But when we're looking for things like our sex life, we'd find actually better data looking at the sign where someone's Mars or Venus is."
A person's Mars can reveal the type of energy that will turn someone on, while a person's Venus can reveal the type of energy that attracts them. These are things you'll only learn from knowing someone's birth chart, which usually requires knowing their time of birth and location.
But if you want to keep it simple, Purdy says that's OK too. "The Sun Sign is more likely to tell us about where you can flatter or easily tailor an activity or experience to someone's personality," she says. "Knowing someone's zodiac sign can help you create an experience that'll put them into the energy of fun and being seen/understood. For most humans, that's the starting point for getting to sex and intimacy."
So here's the one thing you should do to get your partner in the mood, based on their zodiac sign.
