The passionate, mysterious vibes of Scorpio season have come and gone — and we head into the final sign of our the calendar year: Sagittarius. The archer and adventurer, Sags are known for wanting more — intellectually, physically, you name it. Ruled by Jupiter (think big! happy! optimistic and ambitious), your friendly neighborhood Sagittarius isn’t one to lay back and enjoy the ride in their relationships. Instead, they want explosive physical and emotional chemistry and adventurous partners that can keep up with them.
“Symbolized by the centaur, the mythical half-horse/half-human, you’re governed by both animal instincts and enlightened thinking. Sagittarius rules morals, wisdom, higher education…along with the hips and thighs…Although you’re always striving for divine inspiration, you’ve got a serious lust for life’s ‘earthly pleasures.’ No wonder you’re often torn in two directions,” the AstroTwins write about Sagittarius. “You have a huge appetite for life, and your partners must share that quality. Finding someone who can keep up with your endless quest for adventure and expansion is no easy task. For this reason, many Sagittarians can be single for long periods of time. When you actually are in relationships, they tend to be all consuming–at least, at first.”
As we frequently note, every sign plays with a different season/planet differently! Your chart is chock full o’ cosmic knowledge and traits that make up your specific personality. So be sure to check your sun sign, your moon sign and your ascendant/rising sign, as well as your other prominent planets out for a full zodiac picture (Mars and Venus are always interesting in the realm of sex and relationships!) — and you might benefit from a sit down with an astrologer to go over your chart and get an understanding of how well you play with other signs.
But, in the meantime, if you want to ride out Sagittarius season with a bang and some whimpers, we’re recommending you channel your inner adventurer, pump up your energy and seek out some exciting, active and athletic sex positions.
Sorry my lovely starfish friends, this isn’t your time. (And save those pillow princess vibes until Taurus season!) Instead, we want you to look at how in touch with your body you can be and how you embrace the full range of motions you and your partner have at your disposal to aggressively and enthusiastically seek out the kind of pleasure you want and need. You may roll out of bed later with sore thighs or feeling like you did a few too many planks — but the shared experience of working some sexy aggression out together is powerful one.
Whether you’re experimenting with getting on top a bit more, thinking about how you can play around with power dynamics or even just considering what positions you can tackle while standing or kneeling (or even swinging). Embracing the full mind and body connection of letting your sex life get your heart and your partner(s) heart(s) beating faster by breaking a sexy sweat is a way to make for an intense and passionate experience together. Think about creative ways to work with the positions you’re comfortable with (ex: modify doggy or plow, to up the intensity) and switch positions often, chasing the sensations that feel right at any given moment. ,
And don’t worry: You can always cool down with some sleepy, lazy sex later. You’ll have earned it.
