Every month we bring you horoscopes. Whether you’re a firm believer, or sit on the fence, one avenue we haven’t explored as yet, is how your star sign effects your sex life.

From how the moon effects your libido, to how your key personality traits shape your signature moves, we all deserve to have phenomenal sex, and if you happen to use the zodiac's wisdom to guide you there, then bravo! Read on.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As natural leaders, you're more likely to find an Aries confidently pursuing a potential partner, rather than being the one who is pursued. Due to their competitiveness, Aries tend to initiate sex and bring new toys and games into the bedroom. The biggest Aries erogenous zone is their mind, so any play that involves fantasy should go down a treat.
Toys to try: The Tracey Cox Supersex Beginner's Bondage Kit ($35) is never wasted on an Aries!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Ruled by the planet Venus, Taureans are sensual creatures that love sex to be a totally immersive experience—we're talking scented candles, body chocolate, ambient music, the works!
Taureans are big fans of marathon-lovemaking sessions, and their determination means their playmates will be in for an earth shattering orgasm (or two!).
Start with a massage, then build slowly into foreplay and beyond—your inner Taurus will thank you.
Toys to try: The Jimmyjane Afterglow Massage Candle ($32) will be a total game changer for any Taurus.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Geminis are well known for their flirtatious behaviour and daring natures. They’re not shy about their sexuality, and their way with words means that they are great at communicating with their partners. This characteristic is twofold—Geminis will straight up tell you what they need in the bedroom, and their dirty talk is likely to be on fire!
You can expect to be taught lots of new, exciting positions if you're getting down and dirty with a Gemini!
Toys to try: Make the most of that daring personality by trying a pair of control-operated vibrating knickers.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The moon rules the sign of Cancer, making this sign incredibly romantic and nurturing. They love breast play, so be sure to pay attention to this erogenous zone.
Like Pisces, the water present in Cancerians also makes them highly perceptive, resulting in a generous, intense lover, whose powerful lust really comes into play as romance starts to blossom.
If you’re Cancerian, you may find that you are especially orally fixated and you love long make out sessions, as well as giving and receiving oral sex.
Toys to try: Why not try using the a tongue vibrator to tickle Cancer’s sweet spots?
Leo (July 23-August 22)
When it comes to sex, you can count on a Leo to combine their powerful libido with their affinity for drama.
Charismatic Leos are passionate and confident in bed, and they thrive on being the centre of attention. This is demonstrated by their love of sizzling seduction and foreplay.
A particularly powerful erogenous zone for a Leo is their back, so rake those fingernails across it! Ultimately, Leo is a sign that loves all things pleasurable, making them unforgettable in the sack.
Toys to try: Sexy Lingerie is always a winner for Leo, it'll guarantee that all eyes will be on them.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos are dedicated to organisation and pursuing perfection in everything—which is excellent news for their bedfellows. Sex isn't over until Virgo’s partner's socks are 100 percent knocked off. They also have no hesitations in initiating the post-coital debrief. "How was it for you?" is Virgo speak for "I want to be the best sex you've ever had". Try lying on a flat surface like a desk for sex. The solid foundation, and its links with order, should help you relax, leaving your mind free to focus entirely on those sensations.
Toys to try: Virgos love being organised, with everything put in its place. So, a Lovehoney Lockable Sex Toy Case ($53) will always be well received.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Like Taurus, Libras, are also ruled by the planet Venus which accounts for their refined tastes and love of sophistication. They love to be mentally and verbally stimulated, so flirty exchanges and steamy sexts will get you in a Libra's good books (and if you’re lucky, in their bed!) Anything beautiful or cultured is automatically appealing to Libras and you love to set the scene by slipping into your most devilish lingerie and lighting loads of candles.
Libras are exceptional lovers, establishing equality in all that they do, so the 69 position is a favourite with Libras, and they love it when you talk dirty.
Toys to Try: A Double Ended Dildo ($25) brings balance to the bedroom.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio is ruled by planets Mars and Pluto that deal with desire and transformation respectively.
This fiery combination has lead to Scorpio becoming universally known as 'the sex sign'—they’re usually extremely passionate and exude sex appeal.
Naturally powerful people, Scorpios tend to seek out sexual scenarios that revolve around aspects of control.
Toys to try: The Tease by Lovehoney Riding Crop ($25) lets you know who is boss.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius has a sense of humour that means there’s never an awkward sexual moment. An untimely leg cramp or queef won't bother them, they'll just laugh it off and keep going. Known for being free-spirited souls, a Sagittarius is sexually liberated and is always up for trying different things.
Sagittarius is a fire sign that’s symbolised as a hunter, meaning you pursue potential partners with heated passion. You're also a natural traveler, so holiday sex in an exotic location really floats your boat.
Toys to try: A Sagittarius looks for fun as well as new positions, so break out some karma sutra playing cards.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Big fans of regular, athletic sex, Capricorns have plenty of stamina. Lusty Capricorns are an earth sign and their goal-oriented mindsets mean that you should expect orgasms aplenty! Ruled by Saturn, which is the planet of restriction and repression, Capricorn loves sexual play that involves orgasm denial or boundaries.
Their knees and legs are also important erogenous zones. Capricorns love to treat themselves, so will own the latest sex toys, the most luxurious lube and the fanciest lingerie on the market.
Toys to try: Capricorns will love the sophisticated flavours of lube.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarians have active imaginations and a love of fantasy. They are independent creatures that often take on a leadership role in the bedroom.
Those born under the sign of Aquarius are likely to include role play in their romps, and will have no problem living out their wildest fantasies. They are open and honest about what they enjoy. If you are lucky enough to have sex with this air sign, you'll soon discover that they love to experiment. Aquarian sex is rarely boring!
Toys to try: Check out a range of sexy role play outfits.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces are extremely intuitive and compassionate souls, making them great lovers. They’re experts at deciphering what their partner enjoys, and then doing exactly that all night long! If that Piscec one-night-stand keeps calling, it's because you rocked their world and they want to come back for more. As a water sign, being in or near to water is the best way for this sign to relax, so try getting your freak on in the shower or hot tub.
Toys to try: Pisces, why not treat yourself to a Sex in the Shower Single Locking Suction Foot Rest ($26). It'll take your water play to new depths!
