Sex by the stars
Aries is also early in the zodiac wheel, which makes them more in touch with their primal impulses, so since their raw sexuality is counter-intuitive to planning, they should own this and be prepared to take an "anytime, anyplace" approach, MacGuire adds. That's a bonus, as spontaneity can be really enjoyable in a healthy relationship. (Here's what your zodiac says about your health.)
It's also important to keep things interesting. "Aries gets bored very easily, so try experimenting with new positions and toys, or have fun in different places, like the kitchen table, the foyer, in the car," he adds. Especially after the eclipse, Aries might be super revved up.

Taurus also appreciates any senses, like scent, that can be taken in. "They should have aphrodisiacal diffusers going or candles burning—ylang ylang and vanilla are good," he adds. This attention to romance can really enhance a relationship in the long term.
And like many other signs (but especially Taurus), there's a real love of both sex and food, so combine them to double your pleasure. (But avoid these foods during sex.) "For foreplay, feed each other cherries and strawberries, and drizzle chocolate syrup or honey on each other's bodies," MacGuire says. (It might be helpful to re-watch the movie 9 1/2 weeks.) This is what women with incredible sex lives always do.

Don't be shocked if a Gemini brings a bit of Shakespeare into the bedroom. "A lover of language, Gemini can spice things up in the bedroom by taking turns reading hot passages of erotica with his or her partner," he explains. This could really show a partner a emotional, romantic side, and the communication post-sex can also bring you closer together.
Something by Henry Miller or Anais Nin could be a great option, MacGuire suggests.

What's more, the Cancer is eager to please, giving the people who matter extra love and attention. And they like to have that love and attention reciprocated. Here's why: The caretaker of the zodiac, Cancer may also enjoy being taken over in bed to avoid caretaker burnout.
This could mean light S&M or role play involving a cop or fireman, someone who can swoop in and save the day, MacGuire suggests. These sort of games can definintely shake things in bed and in the relationship.

This could mean staying on top during sex or cracking the whip and making a partner a slave (with consent, of course). Her frisky nature can surely spice things up, making a Leo great in bed.
The "exhibitionist of the zodiac," as MacGuire calls it, may also take part in sex parties or threesomes, to show off their skills. Or, it might be in a place where they're seen by others or videotaped. (There's nothing like an audience to arouse a Leo.)

What's more, working with the Kama Sutra will also intensify a love experience for Virgo, so you'll really feel in sync with your partner and take the relationship to higher level.
Here's a kinky secret: "Because Virgo can be anal retentive, they might benefit from anal sex, which can release a lot of tension and loosen up critical facilities," he adds. Try out these steamy tricks to boost your libido.

"Libra's gift—and lesson—is balance, so if they play a dominant role in their public lives, in the bedroom they'll enjoy being submissive. Conversely, if they're in a subservient role at work, they'll likely enjoy a more dominant role in the bedroom," says MacGuire. This could add a level of suprise to a relationship.
Also, if your Libra gets into role-playing and cross-dressing, don't be shocked. Libras may enjoy cross-dressing in the bedroom to balance their male and female energies better, Macquire says.
They also appreciate some classic romance: A bed with rose petals, French music, and delicate lighting? Yes, please. Setting the mood for a positive atmosphere will help get a libra in the mood and improve your sexual chemistry.

Scorpio might want to engage in sexual fantasies, like slapping on handcuffs, blindfolding, and biting a lover, or finding the power in being powerless, as they allow these things to be done to them. And, when released from domination, they're likely to be stronger, having had the chance to be vulnerable, expains MacGuire. Being able to be both dominant and submissive makes for a good balance in a relationship.
Plus, as the sign of extremes, Scorpio may enjoy the feel of ice cubes on the skin or hot wax, anything that pushes them to the limit and makes them transcend time and space, he adds. These are unexpected health benefits you get from sex.

Outdoorsy Sagittarius may also want to try sex in a secluded outdoor setting to really get turned on. Maybe a camping trip? Or plan a weekend getaway to get it on in a new, private, and intimate space.

A natural-born CEO, Capricorn may want to tie a partner up and drive him or her crazy with a striptease (like what you might see in movies), for instance. Or maybe set the scene with the right music and role play, pretending it's "schoolteacher or dominatrix," suggests MacGuire.
A downside? Often a control freak, Capricorn may enjoy engulfing a partner, but not allow him or her to climax until they're ready themselves. This will drive their partners crazy, imbuing Capricorn with power, he cautions.
But they have a bright and playful side too: "Underneath their stoicism, Capricorn is a wild child. The bedroom is where she should allow herself to get down and dirty with wild, rough sex, bondage, spanking, sex clubs, and swapping with other couples," says Macguire.
Best sex matches: Virgo, Taurus, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
As the zodiac's innovator, Aquarius will enjoy toys, edible contraceptives, costumes, or really anything out of the ordinary, says MacGuire. "Nothing can get an Aquarian turned on more than shocking others. Foreplay could start at dinner with footsies under the table, sneaking up on a mate and seducing them into an impromptu romp, or enjoying sex in public would also unleash their inner rebel," he adds.
It's worth being open and honest with an Aquarius partner about any sexual fantasies or fetishes, as they're most likely to be on board.

They might invest in the right music, lighting, and costumes to create a fantasy where he or she can get lost in the experience—and hopefully a partner will too.
For Pisces, soft and gentle sensual massage is a great precursor to the slow, sleepy sex they often enjoy. So expect the passion to be intimate and graceful.
"And, ever the artist, Pisces should try using edible body paints. They'll likely create—and become—a masterpiece," MacGuire suggests as a fun way to mix things up.
