Zodiac Sign Compatibility in Love and Sex 

With the start of a new year, between making new goals and setting new standards, sexual resolutions are just as important as any others. At ASTROGLIDE, we want to help you have more connected sexual experiences, and that starts with understanding your sexual compatibility with others. Although it is not an exact science, zodiac sex compatibility can help point you in the right direction (or at the very least be highly entertaining).  

Whether you’re a believer or just in it for entertainment, zodiac sex compatibility can provide insight into another person’s character as well as their sexual personality and tendencies. Below we’ve outlined each sign’s sexual style, turn-ons, preferences, and tips from our resident sexologist Dr. Jess and more to help get you started:  

AriesMarch 21-April 19

Style: As a prominent fire sign, Aries are very charged individuals with strong personalities. This directly correlates to their bedroom persona, as they often have a very direct and shameless approach, are less focused on romantic gestures, and more about gettin’ physical.  

Turn-ons: Passionate aggression is the ultimate move to pull on an Aries. They do not appreciate subtlety and instead get excited by the directness and being surprised. They are competitive in nature and therefore love to turn sex into a game or competition.  

Turn-offs: Routine is a nightmare for an Aries. They can’t stand routine in any form: the same position, the same time of day or week, you name it – if it’s regular, they don’t want it.  

Aries Compatibility: Sagittarius, Leo, Gemini, Aquarius.  

Taurus – April 20-May 20

Style: This zodiac sign is very sensual in nature. They love the slow seduction form of foreplay, but no games. Once they choose their partner, they are straightforward and uncomplicated, hoping to have an old Hollywood movie type of romance in the bedroom. They are a classic love-maker.  

Turn-ons: As mentioned, think about what Hollywood taught us: rose petals, classic romantic music, champagne, candle-lit room, the works. Go deep into foreplay, stimulate all their senses and they will make you feel like the only person in the world.  

Turn-offs: Stay away from off-the-beat sexual ventures, at least at first. Taurus are traditional creatures at heart.  

Taurus Compatibility: Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces 

Gemini – May 21-June 20

Style: Mental connection over everything is key for a Gemini, they love intellectual intimacy. Geminis are very cerebral and verbal people; they crave a sexual conversation of any nature. They also are known to shift attention, so they like to switch it up and keep it interesting to hold their mental focus.  

Turn-ons: Tell them everything you want to do to them, in detail. If you can add wit, all the better. You’ll see the mischievous sparkle light up in their eyes. As they are extremely imaginative, spice things up however you can. They’ll excite over any curveballs you throw their way.  

Turn-offs: Repetition and stage 5 clingers. Gemini can be monogamous but need to still feel free.  

Gemini Compatibility: Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries, Sagittarius 

Cancer – June 21-July 22

Style: Think intense and devoted monogamy. They want an emotional relationship and once they have that with you, they will be an incredibly giving partner. They will easily spot your needs and happily fulfill them for you.  

Turn-ons: As one of the most emotionally passionate signs, show your Cancer they have you and are safe to expose their vulnerable side. In the bedroom, Dr. Jess suggests “trying the sidewinder position for full-body contact and the intensity of gazing into one another’s eyes. Lie face to face on your sides. Throw your upper leg over their hip and pull them in close.” 

Turn-offs: If you stray from your commitment to them, the intense connection will be broken for them. 

Cancer Compatibility: Taurus, Virgo, Pisces, Capricorn 

Leo – July 23-August 22

Style: Leos are natural lovers that will go on pleasing you forever if you give them the recognition they crave. They want to be the star of the show and aren’t shy to be extravagant. 

Turn-ons: “Leo’s like to be admired, so position yourselves standing in front of a mirror so that you can both sneak a peek and play the role of both exhibitionists and voyeurs,” says Dr. Jess.  

Turn-offs: Don’t try to control a Leo, they need to feel like they are in charge.  

Leo Compatibility: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Libra, Aquarius 

Virgo – August 23-September 22

Style: They have a traditional sexual personality. They want things to be clean and orderly. They are often the less aggressive partner and will bring sweetness into any relationship.  

Turn-ons: A carefully planned lovemaking session is their bread and butter. “Slow things down and sink deeply into the moment with a Virgo. Let them lie on their back while you explore every square inch of their body — except for their hottest spots. Play with teasing and deprivation to build tension, anticipation, arousal, and intensity as you build to your crescendo.” 

Turn-offs: They don’t do the dirty in “down and dirty.” Keep it clean in bed. 

Virgo Compatibility: Pisces, Taurus, Capricorn, Libra 

Libra – September 23-October 22

Style: With refined tastes, Libras love a sophisticated and intellectual sexual environment. They are open-minded and love to explore erotic experiences.  

Turn-ons: Luxury. Libra being the sophisticated lover, they will want all the niceties available. Dr. Jess recommends picking a position that allows you to whisper in their ear. If they love positive feedback (because they love to please!), let them know exactly what and how you’re feeling. Describe every sensation, pulse, contraction, drip, movement, and emotion to take them over the top.” 

Turn-offs: Camping, or roughing it in general, is a no-go for this partner.  

Libra Compatibility: Gemini, Libra, Leo, Sagittarius 

Scorpio – October 23-November 21

Style: Scorpio is the most dominating zodiac sign and this is reflected in the bedroom. The intensity they come with is unmatched along with their never-ending stamina. If a Scorpio chooses you, they will create a connection deeper than sex or love. Be ready for the incredibly powerful energy. 

Turn-ons: Showing you understand them is number one…closely followed by BDSM and kinky sex. Think 50 Shades of Grey and go from there. “Flip the script on a Scorpio and tie them up. They can remain in control by giving you directions while simultaneously benefiting from being physically submissive.” 

Turn-offs: Traditional or vanilla styles. 

Scorpio Compatibility: Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer, Taurus  

Sagittarius – November 22-December 21

Style: As the boldly adventurous type, this fire sign loves anything new and challenging. If there is risk involved, they can’t resist and will get it on anywhere and anytime.  

Turn-ons: Challenge them. Ask them to try something they haven’t before. Give them the look in a new spot, they are not shy. “Play on the balcony or in the backyard, for example. Wait until dark and then start in the shadows (perhaps with a cloth gag to minimize noises). They can stand against the wall or rail to look out at the world while you approach from behind.” 

Turn-offs: Routines and predictability will be the death of Sagittarius libido.  

Sagittarius Compatibility: Aries, Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, Libra 

Capricorn – December 21-January 20

Style: Work hard, play harder. If you can tear them away from work, their ambitious mentality comes with them to bed. They will work tirelessly to make sure you are completely satisfied. Capricorn is one of the most dedicated lovers.  

Turn-ons: If you have the patience to coax them into a sexual experience, they will melt for you. Planned sex dates packed with all the elements of a romantic night are gold with Capricorn. 

Turn-offs: Surprises? Absolutely not, they are not into spontaneous sex 

Capricorn Compatibility: Taurus, Virgo, Cancer 

Aquarius – January 21-February 18

Style: While a little reserved in their commitment, this sign can be heavily lustful if you catch their attention. They love an outside-the-box personality and to see how that mentality can be highlighted during sex. Keep them guessing and they will keep coming back for more.  

Turn-ons: Uniqueness. These lovers will always be fond of the eccentric styles and the outliers of ideas. “Break the rules by trying something new. If you usually have P-V intercourse, experiment with pegging. If you usually have oral, play with penetration — perhaps in the backdoor. And if anal is your usual routine, change things up and try oral in the shower,” says Dr. Jess.  

Turn-offs: Conventional sex and containment will have your Aquarius feeling claustrophobic and uninterested.  

Aquarius Compatibility: Gemini, Sagittarius, Leo, Aries 

Pisces – February 19-March 20

Style: Having a talent for empathy combined with their emotional personality, Pisces lovers will have you feeling things you never have before. They are very open to things in bed and will pay close attention to how everything pleasures their partner, creating a euphoric and magical experience.  

Turn-ons: Show a Pisces just how much you love something they did. Encouragement leads to more magic with them.  

Turn-offs: Don’t contain your reactions or how you feel. Acting reserved will be like taking a cold shower for them.  

Pisces Compatibility: Scorpio, Taurus, Capricorn 

Ultimate match ups:

Aries & Sagittarius – primitive 

The best match for Aries would be Sagittarius. Their match-up is known to be very primal in nature, having a dramatic and almost maddeningly passionate experience. Their sex sessions are always adventurous and stimulating, as both can’t stand routine or boredom. 

Scorpio & Scorpio – powerful and intense 

The only worthy match of a sexual partner for a Scorpio is another Scorpio. Think of the darkest depths passion can have…a Scorpio couple will take it further. When they come together it is a storm of devotion and ecstasy which leads to powerful sexual chemistry. Think of the smutty and sultry vampire books, full of undying passion and dark erotic fantasies.  

Capricorn & Virgo – fiery and wild  

These earth signs match in energy as they will only fully submerge in sex when they are with a worthy partner, but when they do it is unleashing, and both give all their energy to pleasing the other. When these two find one another and put down their shields, fireworks of passion will be exploding all night long.  

Pisces & Cancer – deep connection 

As lovers, they are both extremely dedicated to a deep connection and pleasing the other. Pisces are in tune with their most carnal fantasies while Cancer loves the divine natural aspects of lovemaking, taking this pair to such a primitive level emotionally and physically. They will have a hard time coming out of their own sensual world.  

Gemini & Leo – ecstasy and cerebral 

As they both crave a mental connection, these two have a cerebral understanding that will scorch the bedroom. A Leo will know exactly what to say to ignite a fire in a Gemini and a Gemini, being extremely seductive, will artfully voice all the motivation and flattery a Leo needs to put on the show of a lifetime. These signs are very hardworking lovers when they have the attention of the other which leads to a powerful explosion of sexual expression. 

Aquarius & Libra – flirtatious and experimental  

Two air signs pairing up for a sexual escapade is ideal, if not the perfect match. This partnership will be eccentric, experimental, and elegantly executed between the tasteful expressive style of a Libra and the innovative Aquarius. They will never have a sex rut and will always be anticipating a new and sexy surprise at every encounter. 

Taurus & Virgo – intertwined foreplay  

Slow and steady will win the race, as these two are a slow burn match. They will lay a foundation first with plenty of foreplay and heated conversations to decide what they want to do. Once they warm up to each other, that burning desire between them is reinforced by all the time they spent preparing and the sexual energy will reach so deeply and completely. This pair will be seamlessly intertwined in bed and stop only when they are both thoroughly satisfied. 

To find your astrological compatibility, you will need to know your partner’s birthday and know your sun sign. To find your best match for astrological compatibility whether it be sexual or relationship wise, you will want to know you and your partner’s full astrological chart. To do that, you will need to know the time of your birth and your partner’s time of birth and city of birth. Then you can get your full relationship compatibility. There are many apps and websites out there that can calculate that for you. Have fun and don’t worry too much if you don’t see your signs as being the best match, if the sexual chemistry is there, that’s all that really matters!
