The Sex Horoscope
What Sexual Astrology Reveals
It's always best to start by getting familiar with the horoscope chart as a whole, before concentrating on specific questions. Still, for a sex horoscope reading, there are certain planets and astrological Houses, as well as their aspects (certain angles), that are of particular interest. They have the most meaning when it comes to a person's sexuality.
The parts of particular meaning in a sex horoscope reading of the birth chart are as follows. To read more about each, see the links below.
Sex and Your Zodiac Sun SignThe sun's position in the horoscope birth chart is of immense importance, not just for a sex horoscope reading. It shows your basic traits, when you're not involved in something governed by another ingredient in the horoscope. Your Zodiac sun sign is the most obvious when you are at rest, your everyday attitude.
As for the sex horoscope, the sun shows your general sexual preferences - what attracts you, what you are comfortable with, what you usually go for.
Observe that the sun is not the major influence on your sexuality, just a very general indication of what normally attracts you. At a sexual encounter, other forces get into play, so much can happen. Here you find short sex horoscope descriptions for each of the Zodiac signs, when occupied by the sun:
Sex and Your Zodiac Moon SignThe moon in your horoscope birth chart shows your emotional needs and longings. Of course, these are very much involved in your sexuality. So, in your sex horoscope the moon's position means a lot. It reveals what you need to be satisfied, what inner urges have to be complied for your sexual experience to be fulfilling.
It's the nature of the moon that these needs may be concealed - even to you, yourself. We are often quite unclear about our own emotions, especially the deep ones, which are often the strongest. You need to have a look at your complete horoscope birth chart to figure out how much in touch you are with your inner urges. The position of the moon and aspects to it will have the clues.
The moon is not really involved in the physical activities of the sexual act. That's more for Venus and Mars to dictate. Instead, it says how you need your sexuality to feel, how your senses react and what kind of mood you are in - before it, during it, and after it. If the moon's longings are fulfilled, you can't be happier, almost to the point of wanting nothing more from life. If they are not, you crave for more and more and more.
Here are short sex horoscope descriptions of what the moon reveals about your longings in each of the Zodiac signs:
Venus Shows What Pleases YouThe sexual act has two significant sides: what pleases you and how to please your partner. The two sides of the coin. They do not at all need to be the same or even similar. Discovering the differences is what makes a couple's sexuality evolve and intensify.
Venus is the planet that shows what pleases you, what your sexual partner should do to really get you excited and delighted. It's quite concrete, dealing a lot with the physical activity and its characteristics - whoever the partner is, and whatever relation you have as persons. Venus in your sex horoscope not only shows what your body wants, but that's a major part of it. The choreography of your pas-de-deux.
Venus is the very planet of pleasure, so it has its demands and tends to be creative about having them fulfilled. A sexual partner able to serve you as your Venus horoscope position indicates you want to return to, again and again. Someone who doesn't manage that at all is not likely to find you eager for a new embrace.
Here are the short sex horoscope descriptions of what Venus states about your pleasure needs, depending on what Zodiac sign the planet occupies:
Mars Shows How You Want to PleaseAs mentioned above, there are two sides to your sexual activity: how you want to be pleased and what you do to please your partner. The planet Mars in your horoscope birth chart shows the latter. Notice that it's not necessarily what the partner wants (which is decided by the partner's own Venus position). It's what you do out of your own initiative, how you try to please your partner - whether that's to the point or not.
Mars is by its nature not very adaptive or sensitive. So, it's quite normal that people find it hard in their sex life to adjust their behavior so that it fits the partner's needs perfectly. The trick is emapthy, but not only is that difficult for Mars - it's also not certain to be successful if based on one's own Venus position. That is to say, what pleases you is not very likely to be exactly what pleases your partner. You have to explore with the old trial and error method. Explore and observe.
In some horoscope positons Mars is less adaptive than in others. So, some people couldn't care less about the satisfaction of the partner - or just do a sloppy job about it. But Mars can be manipulated, whatever its original characteristics are. It might take hard work, though, and quite some self-restraint. Otherwise, Mars tends to just go on with the same old same old, in a rush to get its job overwith.
The most intriguing thing in a sex horoscope reading is the relation between your Mars and your partner's Venus, and vice versa. What you give compared to what your partner wants to receive, as well as what your partner gives compared to what would please you the most. Adding to the complication, if your Venus doesn't get what it wants, then your Mars is less patient with trying to find what excites your partner. That, too, is mutual.
Many couples fail at this, because it is indeed difficult. Many others have a mediocre success and settle for that. But exploring the Venus to Mars relation of the couple is what can take their sexuality to surprising heights. It's worth the trouble.
It's really Mars that has to comply and adapt the most. We can do little about what pleasures us, but more with how we try to pleasure others. It's a pity, though, that it has to be done by Mars, a planet to which adaption doesn't come naturally. Still, in some sex horoscopes Mars is so positioned that it can adapt rather easily. Their partners are in luck.

How to Combine the Sex Horoscope IngredientsAstrology is all about combining the traits of the horoscope chart ingredients - all of them. One characteristic can be neutralized or even countered by another one. It's the whole of the horoscope that shows what goes, not single parts separately. That's true for a sex horoscope reading as well. You need to compare the ingredients.
The major ingredients in the sex horoscope are the above mentioned: the sun, the moon, Venus, and Mars. Understand them all to understand your own sexuality. Contemplate how they interact in your personality, and how they add up to create your cravings and preferences. Don't think that one of them is solely responsible for any aspect of your sex life. They always interact, in everything.
As soon as your sexual activity is not a solo venture, it gets infinitely more complicated. Then you have to compare to the above mentioned four ingredients of your partner's sex horoscope as well - and how they fit or misfit to yours. It takes some time to figure out - but on the other hand, experiments of this kind tend to have their own rewards.
Here is more about how to combine the ingredients in your sex horoscope, as well as that of your partner:
Consider ThisYou should not take the below about your sex horoscope too seriously. Anything regarding the human nature is far more complex than what can be sufficiently interpreted by any one system of analysis, such as the tools of astrology and the horoscope. Also, remember that there is no definite scientific proof of astrology and the validity of its theories.
Therefore, see this text about sexual astrology primarily as entertainment of sorts, and a way by which you can contemplate your sexuality from a very different viewpoint. In addition, the subject gives a good example of the principles of astrology at work, if you are curious about that.
Observe that there are several parts of your horoscope making up your sexuality. Some of them seem to contradict one another, but you have to be aware of the different sides of your sex life that they concern. Also, of course, our personalities are so complex that they contain several contradictions. That's what we have to live with, and astrology shows us just that, when we understand its meanings.
