If you're looking to gain a deeper connection with your partner, you might want to try something different in the bedroom, so what about looking for the best sex positions for your zodiac sign? You may have read all the how-tos and be familiar with positions in the Kamasutra, but sometimes finding a more emotional connection with your partner requires more divine intervention. 

With many of us reading our horoscopes every week, it's fair to say we're pretty concerned about what the stars have to say about our love life and what our future could look like. It makes sense then that we'd look to astrology to help guide us around the positions of the Kamasutra. 

Here, expert astrologist Inbaal Honigman tells us how we can sexually connect with our partner on a more emotional level with some of the best sex positions suited for our zodiac sign, and sexologist Ness Cooper tells us the best way to approach each position for the ultimate pleasure.

Best sex positions for your zodiac sign

Water signs should opt for doggy style

Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are all water signs, the most emotional signs of the zodiac. According to Honigman, the best sex positions for your zodiac sign will be doggy style moves. 

“Water signs are all about the emotional connection,” says Honigman. “They love whatever makes them feel more together and as if it’s the two of them against the world. So when it comes to sex, they'll be all about going as deep as possible.”

The astrologist explains that this deep emotional connection also translates to positions that allow for physically deeper penetration, “whatever positions are very deep, for example, the rocking chair, or doggy style, or even a variation of doggy like the broken eagle sex position. Anything that would be very deep would appeal to a water sign as they want to become one with their partner.”

But what is the best way to try doggy style? This may be someone's favorite move to go to, but for others, the angle can be too much with pressure on the knees. “To make the doggy style position more comfortable, you can put a pillow underneath the receiving partner's chest,” she says. ”This may make the G-spot area more pleasurable and lead to greater stimulation for those who are receiving penetration. Pillows can also go underneath the knees and the wrists.”

For those with issues in this particular area, she adds, "Sometimes if the wrists are aching during doggy, you can get a rolled-up towel or blanket and just put it underneath your fingers or hands. This raises the hands slightly and takes the pressure off the wrists." 

The addition of your best vibrator can also mean that clitoral stimulation is achieved in the position, increasing the chances of orgasm for everyone involved.

Earth signs should opt for the missionary sex position

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are all earth signs, with typical characteristics being that they're stable, well-rounded, and grounded. So for these signs, Honigman says, routine is key. “For earth signs in general, we’re looking at missionary, we're looking at taking turns in some of the best oral sex positions with the lights out typically,” she says. 

Missionary may be the original simple sex position, but don't think of this as a boring one. "There's something nice about routine," says the astrology expert. "You sort of know where you are with it and chances are, you'll be able to achieve an orgasm easier as you know what you like with this move."

She adds that earth signs feel most confident sexually when they know what they’re doing, so missionary helps with this too. This means becoming practiced at missionary and other similar moves, like the closed missionary position and the butterfly sex position, that they feel sexually proficient in will allow for these signs to connect on a deeper level emotionally." 

To make missionary sex better, sex consultant Cooper says, “Prop the bum up using a pillow, much like you do in the speed bump sex position. This will allow the receiving partner to enjoy deeper penetration that's angled well. It also supports the lower back, which can be necessary if you're in this position for a while.” 

Cooper says that the missionary position also allows you to see your partner’s face and have better non-verbal communication. “Eye contact releases oxytocin and hand-holding has this kind of primal and intimate link. We don't hold hands with everyone so when we do it during sex, it's very important,” she says. 

Fire signs should opt for standing positions

Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are all fire signs. According to Honigman, these signs of the zodiac are not only looking for something more adventurous in the bedroom but something a little more athletic too. Que, the butter churner sex position.

Only joking, that's just one for the (very) athletic among us. “Fire signs are incredibly energetic and they need to just sort of burn off all that energy, much like puppies or rottweilers,” says the astrology and Kamasutra expert. “The connection for them is less important than the athleticism part of it. The joint exercise that a couple is having is much more of an achievement to them.”

Honigman recommends that for these adventurous signs, the best sex positions for your zodiac sign will be standing up or against a wall. “I think that sex up against the wall is great for fire signs as it’s a bit more adventurous and also a bit more sporty,” she says, pointing to classics like the clasp sex position for those looking to try it out for themselves.

However, this sporty position can also make it challenging for first-timers. Cooper explains that there are a few things you need to consider before trying this position, for example, height differences. “If you want to try sex against the wall, you have to take into account height differences, because if the person being penetrated is slightly shorter, they may find it a bit harder to just jump into it,” says Cooper. 

She advises that the best way to combat this is to have the person who is being penetrated lifted onto a surface. “Finding a surface or something similar that is safe can help,” says Cooper. But she warns, “Don't use a towel rail or sink because they can detach from the wall.”

Cooper also adds that variations of this position can be attempted on your sofa. Both partners could sit down for instance, as in the face off sex position. There is also plenty of sex on the sofa positions to try and the sexologist suggests that positioning your partner or yourself on the edge of a sofa is the perfect way to try out this position. “Propping someone up against the edge of the sofa is a good solution because it’s a little bit more risqué, but it's a firmer support and safer height,” she says.

Air signs could opt for a threesome

Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are all air signs and for these signs of the zodiac, Honigman suggests something that is both physically and intellectually stimulating. 

“When it comes to relationships, air signs will bond over the movies that they like, the books they've read, and critical ideas that they have about politics and the universe,” she says. “When we translate this to relationships, air signs will probably be the most excited about talking dirty and other things that stimulate the mind.”

The Kamasutra astrology expert suggests that threesomes and experimenting with BDSM for beginners and blindfolds would be perfect for these signs as they will both be mentally and physically stimulated. “Experimenting with multiple partners, different settings, and different social groups” is the key to this, she says. 

However, threesomes may not be something that everyone is comfortable with. Sexologist Ness Cooper suggests that if you would like to try a threesome, you need to consider what you want to achieve when inviting another person to join you in the bedroom. “I recommend having a think about your top three to five goals of your threesome,” says the sex expert. "Broaching this topic with your partner can be tricky and testing the water with some threesome erotica can be a good way to gauge how they might potentially feel about inviting someone else into the bedroom. Ask your partner if you can read something a bit saucy together. You read a bit and then they read a bit, and you see if they're comfortable or uncomfortable."

If the aim is to revive romance in a relationship then it's best to consider some other ideas first, as typically bringing someone else into the bedroom confuses things more than changes things for the better. "A couple needs to communicate effectively about their desires and feelings," she warns. "This means that no matter your star sign, so long as you consider your des and that of your partners and communicate with them properly, you should be able to have a deeper emotional connection in the bedroom."
