When looking for guidance, we can draw inferences based on our horoscopes. Horoscopes can foreshadow potential destinies depending on how each zodiac sign chooses to express their characteristics.
The twelve zodiac signs are categorized by four elements — fire, air, earth, and water. These elements have a distinct influence over each sign’s personality— including sexual desires and preferences. In honor of International Astrology Day, let’s discover how to reach new heights in your intimate interactions with each zodiac sign:
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire signs are notably ambitious. Aries and Leos possess a great sense of confidence, while Sagittarians are spirited and energetic. Yet, all three require variety to reveal their enthusiastic spirits. Like fire itself, it takes a spark to ignite a flame; hence why fire signs need seduction to kindle sexual arousal. “Seduction is not about the culmination or gratification of desire,” according to former burlesque teacher and persona, Kitty Cavalier. “It is about the thrill of the desire itself.” In this instance, seduction is synonymous with anticipation, and the key to achieving both is to slow things down. Before jumping right into bed, build up anticipation by caressing their erogenous zones; run your fingers through an Aries’ hair, massage a Leo’s back, or trace the inner thighs of a Sagittarius with kisses.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air signs are playful lovers with an appetite for adventure, meaning stagnant environments are quick to bore them. Instead, the best way to meet their needs is to excite their curious side. Air signs thrive when intimacy is spontaneous, so scratch their itch to explore by experimenting in the bedroom. A Gemini will be the first to suggest that you try new positions: the 69 sex position is ideal for the harmonious Libra, and being on top best suits the commanding Aquarius.
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
It’s no coincidence that Earth signs are best described as grounded. But don’t look past the sensuality of these signs because of their disciplined nature. Earth signs showcase their practicality by being direct and open, especially when it comes to physical pleasures. They are fond of the company of others; therefore, anything that provides a more immersive experience will draw Earth signs closer to their partners, like teasing a Capricorn or using sex toys with a Taurus or Virgo.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio Pisces
Best described as the most emotional and sensitive of the signs, Water signs are deeply intuitive. These signs require an emotional connection with their partner as their physical satisfaction is contingent upon emotional security. Despite the rewards of their rich imagination, their minds are often consumed with bustling thoughts which can impact their intimate relationships and sexual desires. To incite the passion for intimacy, Pisceans, Cancers, and Scorpios would most benefit from practices like yoga or meditation, and even prescription treatments for low libido.
When we begin to understand how the characteristics of each sign shape their sexual experiences, we can use that insight to open up lines of communication, explore new territories, and build better and stronger intimate connections.
