Does knowing someone’s zodiac sign clue you into what really turns them on in bed? Can a horoscope provide insight for how to have good sex? The answer is yes.

Our personalities are influenced by astrology, so why wouldn't our sexual preferences? When you’re having sex with someone you really care about, you want to make sure that not only are your needs taken care of but that you give your partner a fantastic time. You want them to scream with pleasure.

Not everybody’s turn-ons are the same; what might work for one person will leave another one cold. It takes time to know what your partner will love and what turns them off fast. And knowing their zodiac sign can point you in the right direction.

If they’re a Taurus, knowing that they’re very sensual and like to take their time will help you to give them a better experience. They may like fast and hot sex as much as anybody else, but they’ll really respond when you take your time and devote yourself to touching every part of their body.

Foreplay is everything to a Taurus, but it’s not to an Aries. Aries get impatient — and that includes with sex. They’re more about variety and intensity than spooning.

The good thing is that men are pretty easy to please. If you want to turn up the heat and rock their world, all you need is an open mind, some imagination, and enthusiasm. They can sense if you’re bored and that’s not fun for anyone.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are known for having very energetic sex and for their take-charge mentality. Doggy style is great for them as they like to be dominant, a little forceful, and have complete access to their partner's body. It's a position that easy enough to change, and Aries do like variety. Aries is the sign of the ram, after all.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus like a sex move that allows them to touch and feel every part of their partner's body. The Cowgirl position allows Taurus to do all that and more.

There are a ton of variations for Cowgirl, and even though it's not difficult, it can make Taurus feel as if they're a genius at sex. Sometimes Taurus doesn't want to feel as if they're doing all the work, and this move allows them to lay back and enjoy.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are imaginative and talkative, and they like a lot of bang for their buck when it comes to sex. They love oral sex and dirty talk, so talking dirty during oral sex would do it for a Gemini man.

Blowjobs are always good (as long as there are no sharp teeth and skin-breaking bites), but add in a little conversation and that's an unforgettable sex move.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are sensitive and affectionate, and making sure their partner feels good is their top priority, so the best move for them is what is known as the "Om" sex position. 

In this position, the man sits cross-legged (yoga-style) while the woman sits in his lap facing him. She wraps her legs around him and they hug each other. This move is more about rocking toward orgasm than thrusting.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are fairly easy to please. All you have to do to make it memorable for them is to remember specifically what they enjoy. If a Libra is more submissive, then you go dominant and vice versa. They're very versatile and adaptive so you should be too.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

These guys are intense and passionate. They tend not to be into hooking up just to hook up. Sex for them needs to involve all the senses.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius guys enjoy a buildup of sexual tension, so once they're ready, they're going to want something that's mutually pleasurable like 69. For some people who might feel awkward at oral sex, 69 helps them to relax and enjoy the combination of giving and receiving at the same time.

Also, if things start to seem routine, change up the location; move outdoors and 69 on a hammock.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When you're Netflix and chilling with your Capricorn man, surprise him with sex on the couch. It's like a cross between the Cowgirl position and the Om position, but more comfortable. It will feel kind of naughty doing it in the living.

Capricorns have a large sexual appetite and can be kinkier than you might think, so don't be surprised if sex on the couch is just the beginning of a night of great sex.

Aquarians pride themselves on being open-minded and they love to come up with new things. If you want to get him in the mood, nothing works better than sitting on his face. This shows how inhibited you can be and how you want to be sure you're satisfied.

Plus, Aquarian men love oral. They'll get off on getting you off. But don't worry, this is only the first course.
