Astrology is a fun and fascinating way to not only explore your own personality traits and predilections, but those of potential partners. For thousands of years scholars and mystics have charted the stars and drawn natal characteristics according to the season, as well as planetary alignments, in which one is born.The twelve zodiac signs are categorized according to earth, fire, air, and water, with each element representing prominent qualities:
- Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Practical, grounded, not easily influenced by those around them.
- Fire (Aries, Leo, Saggitarius): Courageous, driven, born leaders.
- Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Intellectually inclined, natural philosophers and scholars.
- Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Emotional, creative, highly intuitive.
The pairing of certain zodiac signs is often said to make or break a successful relationship, both in and outside the bedroom. World famous astrologer Linda Goodman wrote numerous books and guides on ideal astrological partnerships, as well as in-depth explorations of each sign, both male and female. Below are some universally acknowledged truths about each sign’s more, shall we say, amorous side.
The youngest sign in the zodiac, Aries represents all the impatient exuberance of youth. These fiery rams are eager to experience everything at once, on full volume, thus making them eager and energetic lovers.
The strong, gentle bull is ruled by Venus, if that’s any indication. When a Taurus sets out to seduce, they do so slowly, appealing to all the senses. The best food, wine, music, and scents are crucial to a Taurus, and they prefer to take their time in making sure the atmosphere is equivalent to the outcome.
Charming and clever, Gemini loathes repetition of any kind, and is always seeking new and delightful ways to give and receive pleasure. Highly influenced by the written word, these celestial twins adore bedroom banter, be it poetry or the naughtier variety.
The sensitive crab traditionally strives to create a safe and inviting space for themselves and their partners; like the Taurus, they prefer to indulge the senses through delicious food and music as a precursor to familiarity. Once a Cancer fully trusts the one they’ve invited into their bed, they hold very little back.

Carl Jung once noted that, “We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” However much you read into astrology, it can’t be denied that each of us carries more than a little proof of the sign we were born under-and take with us into the bedroom.
