Dominant Submissive Sex Zodiac Sign Astrology
Zodiac, Sex

Figuring out whether you’re more dominating or submissive in the bedroom isn’t just about what your preferences are — astrology can also lend its hand in helping you figure out which role you or your partner likes better before you've had a chance to experiment by looking to each other's zodiac sign.

Especially if you’re on the fence or if you like each role equally.

There’s something sexy about being both controlling and giving up that control in the bedroom. For me, it all depends on what kind of mood I’m in; whether I want to be the one to call the shots or the one to obey them.

Being a dominating partner thrills some people because they love being in charge. But then again… being the submissive one in the bedroom can be just as thrilling.

Of course, not everyone feels the same way when it comes to sex. Usually a person is more interested in one role over the other — which can sometimes better than being a flip-flopper.

In means they put in MUCH more effort to live up to their role.

These horoscopes really get into what it means to be one or the other, and based on your zodiac sign (if you don't already know which one you are), astrology can help you determine how likely (or unlikely) you are to be the one who likes to take charge in bed:

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo hates when people tell her what to do, so naturally, she would want to be the more dominating one in the bedroom. While she also loves when her partner worships the ground she walks on, she still wants to be the one to call the shots.

For Leo, being the dominating one in the bedroom is not just about being able to tell her partner what to do, but doling out the punishments should they disobey. The thrill of being ablt to take charge and stay in control keep things spicy.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio is all about passion (duh) and being the one who takes charge in the bedroom comes easy for her. She has a naturally aggressive personality and she tends to translate that into sex. She has a tendancy to show her dominant side through talking during sex, but she isn't shy about bringing toys or props into the equation either.

Scorpio is known to be jealous and suspicious by nature, so being able to be in control is better for her.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 19)

Sagittarius is not the type of person to roll over while someone else call the shots. She doesn't like being told what to do, but even more, she feels like being submissive during sex is trapping.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces doesn't seem like the type of person to like being dominant in bed, but it's a side of her personality she doesn't always show in public. She's what many call a "lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets".

Pisces is a known dreamer, so for her, being dominant is just another way live out some of her fantasies.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is always ready for fun when it comes to sex. The only thing Gemini is more scared of than having to make all of the decisions herself is a repetitive, boring sex life. When she's the dominating one, she doesn't have to worry about either of those things.

Gemini can call the shots without ever having to worry that things are getting boring and predictable. Every once in a while she enjoys being submissive, but it's all part of her hot and cold personality.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is dominant during sex, but it's simply out of necessity. She hates when her partner isn't doing what she wants, so she likes being in charge so that she can be satisfied.

Aries can't help herself — she's bound to be a leader in all aspects of her life.

On the flip-side, Aries also likes letting go and relaxing at times, so if being the one in charge starts to feel like work, she'll choose to be submissive for a while. It's not her favorite thing to do, but she still enjoys it.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is known for her stubbornness in every other aspect of her life, but for her, there's just something about letting go of all her inhibitions during sex. For once, she doesn't have to be the boss.

Taurus can be a possessive, jealous person, so during sex it's a chance for her partner to take charge instead.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra has a terrible problem with making decisions and sticking with them. She tends to flip-flop back and forth without ever really landing on a choice.

This is why she's more likely to be submissive in the bedroom.

For her, it can be sexy to be submissive, but it also means she doesn't have to worry about being too aggressive or lenient. This way, though, it's in a safe environment where she can still pick and choose what she likes most.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

For Cancer, not being in charge is just something she loves most — especially during sex.

Cancer can also be a highly imaginative partner, which means just because she isn't calling the shots doesn't mean she doesn't know how to make things more exciting. She isn't shy about talking about her fantasies, either. She just prefers to have a more dominating partner to help bring them to life.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius absolutely hates being told what to do IRL, but during sex, she gives up control because it's a way for her to escape from her normal, everyday self.

She prefers to unwind and enjoy sex for what it is, rather than continue to be in charge.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is always the one who is in charge and handling hers and everyone else's problems in life. It's not so much that she wants to be in charge, but more so that she's just put in that role because she always knows what she's doing.

This is why when she's in the bedroom, she doesn't want to have to put in the work to be the dominating partner. She prefers to enjoy every second of not having to know what she's doing.
