Wondering Which Zodiac Sign You’re Most Sexually Compatible With? Here’s What the Stars Say

Even if you read your monthly horoscope for fun, you might still roll your eyes at the concept of astrological compatibility. The notion that stars and planets could determine how well you get along with someone may seem silly, but what if great sex actually is written in the stars? And "Hey, baby, what's your sign?" doesn't actually deserve its corny pickup line reputation?

Zodiac signs can reflect character, communication styles, preferences, emotions, and even sex drives — all of which play a significant role in understanding yourself and your relationships. I'm not saying you should make all of your major love and sex decisions based solely on astrology, but chemistry is difficult to explain — and some people definitely have better love compatibility with some signs than others.

So if you're looking to achieve some out-of-this-world chemistry with a lover, it certainly can't hurt to take a peek at your astrology birth chart. At the very least, it's kind of fun to learn a little more about yourself and different signs, and at the most, you can discover who your best bedroom-chemistry is with. Keep reading for our handy sexual-astrology primer right this way.
