zodiac signs' turn-offs

We all have things that turn us on, and things that do the opposite and kill the mood. And with the zodiac signs' turn-offs, how someone responds to a move can be completely arbitrary.

If you use astrology as a guide and frequently read your horoscope, you know that what works for one person will leave another one cold. Nobody wants to think of themselves as bad in bed, but if you’re doing something that your partner really doesn't like, you’d want to know about it.

If we all were able to communicate our desires, we wouldn't need to guess, but sometimes that doesn't happen. If you’re with someone for the first time and they’re just happy to be having any kind of action, good or bad, they may not say anything. People can also feel embarrassed by what they like or don’t like.

You might think you’ve got skills and can’t wait to show them off and your guy (for whatever reason) just isn’t into. But rather than let you know and possibly hurt your feelings, he just tries to get through it.

Sometimes it’s helpful to have a general idea of what someone doesn't like, so knowing the zodiac signs' turn-offs is a great way to start. Here’s the sex move guaranteed to kill the mood, all based on his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You know what will kill the mood for an Aries? If you don't give as much as you get and if you're very low energy.

Aries are sexual powerhouses, but they don't want to have to do all the heavy lifting. If they just wanted someone who added nothing and just laid there, they'd just get a sex doll. Aries want a lover with energy and excitement, not someone who is a snooze-fest.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You want to be very careful what perfume or body oil you're wearing with a Taurus. If your scent isn't something that they like, it will turn them off immediately.

Taurus have a very highly attuned sense of smell and the wrong scent can turn them off. You may be able to salvage the evening if you immediately take a shower, but don't assume that they'll be able to continue if Taurus doesn't like how you smell.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Nothing turns a Gemini off faster than someone who is sleepy or asleep. Having both partners be well-rested and energized is key for a Gemini.

If there's one thing that Gemini hates, it's to be bored, and what's something that people do when they're bored? They fall asleep. So, no snoozing, no snoring or cat naps while with Gemini or you'll kill the mood for sure.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer men and Cancer women share many of the same likes and dislike, and one of the things that they both hate is a selfish partner. Sex should be equal parts giving and receiving, and if you're all about getting and not interested in giving, Cancer will lose their desire quickly.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

If you have an attitude of "I could do better" when with a Leo, it will turn them off immediately. Leos are the best and they want their partner to feel that way as well.

Leos need plenty of attention and focus on them and their needs. Don't worry, they'll still make sure you get what you need as long as you stroke their ego a little bit and let them know how incredible you find them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos can be kind of fastidious, which is a nice way to say fussy and squeamish. If you invite a Virgo over for sex and your place is a huge mess or you haven't groomed for the occasion, your session will be over before it even starts.

This isn't to say that they can't be messy and dirty, it's just that they want their environment hygienic and their partner to at least start off clean.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The move that will kill the mood for Libra is fairly obvious: say something negative about their body. If they don't specifically ask you about something (and maybe not even then), don't volunteer that you think their arms are kind of scrawny or that you like their dad bod.

Even if you don't think your man has any body issues, they probably do, and they definitely don't want their partner pointing out something they're already sensitive about.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios love sex and they're geniuses at it because of their focus and passion. Scorpios want their partners to be as into it as they are, and they want them to be present.

What kills the mood for Scorpio is when their partner is clearly thinking about something else and isn't responding to what Scorpio is doing. If you're mid-coitus while waiting for an import life-changing call, then Scorpio isn't your man.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

One thing that will kill the mood for Sagittarius is if you use a sexual encounter as a way to jumpstart a relationship with them. Sagittarius aren't comfortable with commitment anyway, so trying to manipulate them to have an immediate relationship will backfire.

Not only won't you get a relationship, you probably won't get anything intimate either. Sagittarius would rather find a new partner than be with someone who has their own agenda.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

What will kill the mood for Capricorn is if you judge them for their kinky side. They may be serious outside the bedroom, but inside they're pretty much up for anything, and that's how they want their partners to be.

It's one thing to be honest about what you will and won't do, but if you ridicule them for their tastes, Capricorn will get turned off quickly. Actually, this rule is probably a good one for all the signs, so don't make fun of people for what turns them on.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians love to experiment and try new things, so if you're someone who tends to do the same things on repeat, you're not a good match for Aquarius.

Sure, that position worked great that one time, but it's time to move on and try something different. If you refuse to do something that deviates from your usual bag of tricks, you'll kill the mood for Aquarius.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

If you're not honest with Pisces, it will kill the mood for them. If you have some kind of medical concern or sexual dysfunction and you try to hide it, Pisces will feel as if they're not worthy of your trust and they will take it personally.

They'd rather that you be completely honest with them so they can come up with a plan where the both of you will be satisfied and you wouldn't be just going through the motions to please them.
