And, if you've already mastered moves like the wheelbarrow or reverse cowgirl, there are many more positions to try out. Who says an Aquarius can't also be a Scorpio in bed? So, let your astrological sign guide you to the best romp session ever. Your partner will thank you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Openness and imagination are essential qualities of an Aquarius. They love nothing more than to have an interesting conversation with a person and make for loyal, sensitive partners who are not at all possessive. Because of their need for meaningful connections, an Aquarius should try the face-to-face position in the bedroom.
How it works: Sit opposite each other and then slide into his lap, so that you're sitting on top of him. Your legs will be behind his back and his legs will be behind yours. Have him join his feet together, creating a V-shaped cradle for you. This intimate position lets you both take it slow (or fast) and you'll be able to see each other's expressions for extra intimacy. For an imaginative twist on this position, try it in the bath.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Thoughtful and selfless, Pisces lovers are willing to help their friends and significant others without hoping to get anything back. They are intensely romantic, so when it comes to role playing, a Pisces can conjour up some very adventurous sexual escapades. They will take on the role of a giver, with a strong desire to please, so try the frog style.
How it works: Have your guy lie flat on his back and then climb on top of him with your legs spread out as far as you can. Place your hands on his chest to steady yourself and then rock back and forth. This position lets the woman take charge and although your legs may hurt from being stretched out too long, the pleasure you and your SO get from the frog style will be enough to keep you going.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
You'll find an Aries where there's a sense of challenge involved. Sex for them is about the pursuit and conquest and their ideal position is to always be on top. Because they're spontatenous lovers, an Aries will do it anywhere, anytime. The position most suited for an Aries? Reverse cowgirl.
How it works: While your SO lies on his back, climb on top and straddle him so you're facing his feet. Have him grab on to your waist or legs. This position lets you have complete control, setting a pace and rhythm you prefer.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Two important traits of a Taurus is receiving and giving sensual and physical contact. They have an instinctive understanding of how to turn on a lover and will use seduction techniques like candles and aphrodisiacs to set the mood. Due to a Taurus's sensitive nature, they prefer a traditional approach to making love and once they find a move or foreplay they love, the techniqes will not vary. Position to try: reverse scoop.
How it works: Once you're both in the missionary position, turn together onto your sides, so you're facing each other and using your arms to support your upper bodies. You get the same full-body contact and can still gaze into each other's eyes. This safe position allows you to explore what you like in the bedroom before deciding whether or not to be more adventurous.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Inquisitive and always ready to flirt, a Gemini prefers to spend time with different lovers until they find the right one. They need to feel excitement, variety, and passion in their relationships in order to be fully satisfied. They don't like to give themselves up completely in sex and do best in a quick and easy position like doggie style.
How it works: While you're on all fours, have your guy enter you from behind. This position requires more work on the guy's part and you can just go along for the ride.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
A Cancer is not about one-night stands; instead they choose to establish that emotional intimacy first with their partners. Once they have committed, however, they will not stop to satisfy their partner's every sexual need. Since a Cancer is up for anything once they find the right partner, they will try any sex position, including the daring wheelbarrow.
How it works: When you're on your hands and feet, have him pick you up by the pelvis as you grip his waist with your thighs. This male-dominant move means he's in charge while you get an arm workout. If you start to feel tired, rest them on the bed or table.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
A Leo can be adventurous, fun, and very energetic when it comes to sex. Most importantly, they love theatrics. Think Champagne and oysters, satin bedsheets, and violins playing in the background. Lots of foreplay is involved (so quickies are out), and a Leo wouldn't mind a mirror or two to watch themselves get down to business. Position to try? Drop the soap.
How it works: Stand in front of the bathroom sink as your partner enters from behind. You guys will make eye contact while also getting a view of each other's bodies.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sep. 22)
Virgos are tactical and methodical, which makes them great lovers. Though they might not make direct statements of love, they will show their feelings in the bedroom. Their mantra is "practice makes perfect," and they prefer to get the moves right, which means their partner will have to be patient and practice new positions over and over. Not that he will mind. Position to try? The hot seat.
How it works: Grab a workout ball and have your guy sit on top with his feet planted firmly on the floor. Once he's stable, back up onto him and sit between his legs. Your hands should grasp his knee while he holds your hips. This is a rather difficult move that requires balance on both your parts, which makes it all the more fun.
Libra (Sep. 23 to Oct. 22)
Libras are always searching for their other half to balance them out. They desire sex to be fair and equal, which means they aim to provide full satisfaction and will expect the same in return. This reason is why rough foreplay or aggression is a huge turnoff for a Libra. For a position that gives both partners pleasure equally, try the 69.
How it works: Have your partner lie on his back (or you on yours) and then climb on top of him, with your face facing his feet. You'll both have access to the areas you want for pleasure and can be vocal about what is working or not.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Passionate and assertive, a scorpio makes excellent leaders in the workforce and in the bedroom. They want to be in control and because they can't easily express their emotions, they do so during sex. The perfect position to release all of a Scorpio's emotion is the amazon warrior.
How it works: Your partner has to be on his back with his knees to his chest. You then squat down onto him, so his legs wraps around your hips. This position offers you a lot of control in terms of speed and rhythm.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
With a reputation as sexual adventurers, anything and everything goes for a Sagittarius. Foreplay is important to this sign and can involve sex toys and games that evoke a lot of fun amd laughter. A Sagittarius makes for a great sexual athlete, so get ready for the love making to last all night. Position to try? Lean back.
How it works: When your partner is laying on his back, lie on top of him like you're about to do the bridge pose. If you're flexible enough, lean back so your head is between your SO's ankles. Then, have your guy hold on to your hips to control the movements.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
When it comes to love and sex, a Capricorn will never kiss and tell. They have a powerful and instinctive sensuality, which means they enjoy making love slowly and their self-control will give a Capricorn the stamina to stay the course. Try the sidesaddle position.
How it works: Your partner will have to lie down with his knees bent and legs apart. Slide yourself into him at an angle (like you're about to sit sidesaddle) so that one of your thighs is pressed on the outside of his leg and the other thigh is in between his legs. It can take a while to get the positioning right, but slow and steady movements will work like a charm.
