You already know that the zodiac influences your love and sex life from week to week, month to month. As the planets move in the sky above and interact with your own personal astrology, things could heat up or cool off in bed. Miscommunication with your bae? Totally Mercury retrograde! Crazy out-of-the-blue banging? Must be Uranus, the planet of sudden change, at play!
But your own sexuality and attitude toward getting it on is also shaped by when you were born. Here, how your sex drive could be described in one word, based on your sun sign.
Because Aries is ruled by Mars, known as the God of War, you’re naturally aggressive, competitive, and have a take charge nature. There’s no questioning that once you know what you want, you’ll throw all your energy into going after it.
Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you’re a beauty-loving earth sign, and you’re known for takin’ things ~nice ‘n’ slow~. It can take a while for you to get worked up, but the right surroundings and partner makes all the difference.
You’re willing to try anything once—or maybe twice? Basically, you’re up for whatever, and because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, playful flirtation and witty banter lights your fire every time.
Ruled by the emotional moon, Cancers feel oh-so-warmly and deeply. Whether you’re daydreaming about sharing an especially romantic moment with your bae or fantasizing about playing house one day, feeling secure and fully loved is a total turn-on for you.
Because you’re ruled by the confident sun, you’re the king or queen of the jungle, and just as passionate and playful about your sex life as everything else in your life! You want to be adored, and one of the best ways to really feel that, in your opinion, is by racking up mind-blowing Os.
Because you’re an earth sign and a perfectionist—ruled by Mercury, the planet of information and research— you’re practical, sure, but also pretty sensitive, romantic, and grounded. Once you feel like you’ve connected with someone in an intellectual, genuine way, you’ll be more than ready to get physical.
Harmony is your thing, as Libra is ruled by the planet of love Venus, so the more beautiful and romantic your partner and the setting, the more turned on you’re going to be. But if your heart isn’t in it, forget it!
Scorpio is associated with the eighth house, which rules sex and emotional bonds, but you can have one without the other. Let’s put it this way: You have a naturally high sex drive—perhaps one of, if not the highest in the whole zodiac. And you own it.
You’re right in your element when you’re off adventuring and exploring, thanks to your ruling planet, big, bold Jupiter. You know what you want so you say it, without holding back—which usually means your fantasies usually become a reality.
Yeah, you’re an earth sign, ruled by taskmaster Saturn and known for your hardcore work ethic, but you can also be pretty hardcore in bed! Basically, when you set your mind to something, you make it a reality, and fulfilling your desires is no different.
Because you’re an air sign, ruled by Uranus, the planet of revolution, you’re open-minded, creative, and maybe even a little eccentric. You relate to people in a social, affable way, so it’s bolstering a BFF-like bond with your partner that will inspire you to show your sexiest side.
Because you’re a water sign, and you’re ruled by Neptune, the planet of spirituality, you’re driven by your heart. As long as there’s a deep connection with a partner, you’ll fall head first into a lovemaking sesh that involves your body but also your heart and soul.
