The Best Sex Position For Your Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

It's all about your experience of intimacy and how you express love.


When it comes to your zodiac sign and sex, there are different experiences that a sign is going to prefer. The best sex position for your zodiac sign comes down to your experience of intimacy and how you express your love language. There are many different ways in which a sign expresses itself in bed. An earth sign, for example, is going to prefer a sensual, grounded experience that heightens all their senses. A fire sign may prefer something more spontaneous and fiery.

Your zodiac sign, Venus sign, Mars sign, and the different elements of them, are all ways to dive deeper into understanding your sexual and romantic nature.

Aries: The Eagle

The best sex position for the fiery passion of Aries is the eagle sex position. With you being a free spirit, this energy comes out in bed and you want the sparks flying. This position is a position where you and a partner let it all out there and focus on the connection and pleasure at hand. Aries tends to be more dominant in bed and this dynamic plays out in which positions you are drawn to with a partner. The eagle is a sex position that is fun and quirky just like you, Aries.

Taurus: The Chairman

The best position for you, Taurus, is the chairman sex position. Being an earth sign ruled by Venus, you are highly attuned to your sensual nature, and enjoy the pleasures of intimacy. You love the touch, the physical closeness, and the bond that forms within these times. The chairman is a position where you are connected in a way that allows you to feel supported and pleased, something you look for within a partnership. It fulfills your romantic and grounded needs while also hitting all of the right spots.

Gemini: Magic Mountain

The best sex position for a Gemini is the magic mountain sex position. This position gives you a type of connection to your partner that you look for and also allows you to show off your flexible nature. This is a head-on, face-to-face position, and you aren’t one to shy away from being seen or understood deeper. There is a mutual stimulation that keeps your infinitely curious nature well fed here. The magic mountain is a ride that air sign Gemini flows well with.

Cancer: The 69

This one should be a no-brainer. Cancer, the best sex position for you is obvi, the 69 position as most people commonly mistake your beloved symbol as this enticing number. Besides the obvious, Cancers are givers, and this position allows you to do what you do best while also giving yourself something as well. A safe and comfortable environment is what you look for in bed, and when you get to give and enjoy with another as well, you are thriving.

Leo: The Pretzel Dip

Leos are ruled by the Sun and shine light wherever their attention goes, including the bedroom. The best position for a Leo is the pretzel dip. This position is basically what it sounds like. It’s two people intertwining in a way for maximum pleasure. A Leo loves to shine and this includes in the bedroom, and you try to show up and show out here. The pretzel dip is a position that fuels your fire sign passion and intimacy with another. This position allows you room to look your partner in the eyes, or if available, a mirror.

Virgo: The Reverse Cowgirl

Contrary to popular belief, Virgo's more reserved nature is typically thrown out of the window in the bedroom. When Virgo feels safe to be intimate with another, you see a whole new side of a Virgo, which is why the reverse cowgirl is the best position for Virgo. A Virgo is going to pull out their best in bed and this position lets them have fun while also sticking to business like the Virgo they are. Don’t be surprised if there is some hair pulling along with some immediate after-sex clean-up as Virgo doesn’t like a mess.

Libra: The Ballet Dancer

The ballet dancer position is the perfect position for you, Libra. Libra is a romantic soul and prefers to make love. This position allows you a sense of intimacy as well as lets you keep your steady ground with you both standing in this duo. Love for you is about a one-on-one connection, and you want to feel that partnership and balance while making love. Being a Venusian, your energy in the bed is that of romance and receptivity, and you want to make sure there is an equal pleasure.

Scorpio: Doggy-style

Scorpio, not that you need any advice in the sex department as your sign happens to be the ruler of the reproductive system, including you know where. Thus, the best sex position for a Scorpio is doggy-style. Hear me out. You are fully in-tune with your sexual nature, desire intimacy, and, behind the stinger, are quite a romantic. However, all your kinks come out during playtime and this is a position that brings different dynamics and pleasure for you. With Scorpio aligned with the 8th house, the house of giving and receiving, this is the perfect position for you.

Sagittarius: The Corkscrew

The best sex position for Sagittarius is the corkscrew. You like to spice things up in the bedroom and aren’t one to do the same thing with a partner all the time. This position heightens the senses and gives you the mystery and pleasure you thrive on. There is a strength, balance, and trust needed to do this position, and Sagittarius is capable. Being a fire sign, sex is all about passion, and you need a position that is going to feel like that for you.

Capricorn: Missionary

The best position for a Capricorn is the missionary sex position. Capricorns love to uphold traditions and often find themselves sticking to what works rather than finding the need to venture out so much. Not to mention, Capricorns often find themselves in long-term relationships and find pleasure in a certain routine they create with a partner. The missionary position is something a Capricorn always comes back to and what serves their responsible, reliable, and sensual nature. After all, Capricorn is an earth sign and is dedicated to experiencing the pleasures of this earthy life.

Aquarius: The Butterfly

The best position for you, Aquarius, is the butterfly. Aquarius is the perfect balance of connection and independence. You have a lot of drive in life but you also like to relax and aren’t looking for an extreme workout when you are being intimate with another. The butterfly position allows more relaxation and more focus on connection and pleasure, and this serves your easy-going, air sign nature. You want to have fun, switch things up, and do something different, as at the end of the day you are an Aquarius and are never status-quo.

Pisces: The Seashell

With your water sign energy, sex is a transcendent experience for you, Pisces. You uncover deeper parts of yourself while making love, and give your all here. The Seashell sex position is the best position for you as it’s a position that goes to the depths you are looking to go. Being a mutable sign, you also have flexibility with you that allows you to work your strength here. Depending on which side you are on here, this is a position that benefits your receptive and open nature.

The emergence of a week-long tension headache told me that I needed to figure out a way to minimize and relieve my stress. In addition to daily magnesium supplements and meditation, I also found myself wanting to orgasm (the health benefits are hard to ignore) and do so at least every other day.

I was determined to set the mood and engage in some erotic self-focus by way of masturbation, and I wanted to do so with a little more variety than my wand vibrator provides. My commitment to almost daily masturbation was affirmed even further with the arrival of what would become my new favorite sex toy, the viral Lovers’ Thump & Thrust Dual Vibrator.

These days it seems that we’re all trying to heal from childhood wounds, and though I’m a big advocate for cutting people off – family included – I’ve come to learn how challenging that actually is. But also, it’s not always necessary if you have a parent who is open and committed to doing the healing work along with you, a mother, for example, who is receptive to her truth. But this also means you are receptive to the reality that parents are humans who often take cake crumbs from their parents and so on. It’s not to say that you have to accept piss-poor treatment because they’re human, but if any of us are going to embark upon a healing journey, we must acknowledge even the difficult truths.

When I was ten, my Sunday school teacher put on a brief performance in class that included some of the boys standing in front of the classroom while she stood in front of them holding a heart shaped box of chocolate. One by one, she tells each boy to come and bite a piece of candy and then place the remainder back into the box. After the last boy, she gave the box of now mangled chocolate over to the other Sunday school teacher — who happened to be her real husband — who made a comically puzzled face. She told us that the lesson to be gleaned from this was that if you give your heart away to too many people, once you find “the one,” that your heart would be too damaged. The lesson wasn’t explicitly about sex but the implication was clearly present.

That memory came back to me after a flier went viral last week, advertising an abstinence event titled The Close Your Legs Tour with the specific target demo of teen girls came across my Twitter timeline. The event was met with derision online. Writer, artist, and professor Ashon Crawley said: “We have to refuse shame. it is not yours to hold. legs open or not.” Writer and theologian Candice Marie Benbow said on her Twitter: “Any event where 12-17-year-old girls are being told to ‘keep their legs closed’ is a space where purity culture is being reinforced.”

“Purity culture,” as Benbow referenced, is a culture that teaches primarily girls and women that their value is to be found in their ability to stay chaste and “pure”–as in, non-sexual–for both God and their future husbands.

I grew up in an explicitly evangelical house and church, where I was taught virginity was the best gift a girl can hold on to until she got married. I fortunately never wore a purity ring or had a ceremony where I promised my father I wouldn’t have pre-marital sex. I certainly never even thought of having my hymen examined and the certificate handed over to my father on my wedding day as “proof” that I kept my promise. But the culture was always present. A few years after that chocolate-flavored indoctrination, I was introduced to the fabled car anecdote. “Boys don’t like girls who have been test-driven,” as it goes.

And I believed it for a long time. That to be loved and to be desired by men, it was only right for me to deny myself my own basic human desires, in the hopes of one day meeting a man that would fill all of my fantasies — romantically and sexually. Even if it meant denying my queerness, or even if it meant ignoring how being the only Black and fat girl in a predominantly white Christian space often had me watch all the white girls have their first boyfriends while I didn’t. Something they don’t tell you about purity culture – and that it took me years to learn and unlearn myself – is that there are bodies that are deemed inherently sinful and vulgar. That purity is about the desire to see girls and women shrink themselves, make themselves meek for men.

Purity culture isn’t unlike rape culture which tells young girls in so many ways that their worth can only be found through their bodies. Whether it be through promiscuity or chastity, young girls are instructed on what to do with their bodies before they’ve had time to figure themselves out, separate from a patriarchal lens. That their needs are secondary to that of the men and boys in their lives.

It took me a while —after leaving the church and unlearning the toxic ideals around purity culture rooted in anti-Blackness, fatphobia, heteropatriarchy, and queerphobia — to embrace my body, my sexuality, and my queerness as something that was not only not sinful or dirty, but actually in line with the vision God has over my life. Our bodies don't stop being our temples depending on who we do or who we don’t let in, and our worth isn’t dependent on the width of our legs at any given point.
