What Makes You Sexy Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Ever wonder why you're more drawn to one zodiac sign than another? Or wonder just what it is that makes people attracted to you? Astrology explains the seductive qualities of each woman of the zodiac!
Aries (March 21 - April 19) Ruled by warrior planet Mars, the Aries woman has the heart of an Amazon -- and that's an irresistible turn-on! Hot-tempered yet fun, you're an independent person who can hold your own, which makes it all the more challenging for someone to capture your heart. Like Aries stars Reese Witherspoon and Kate Hudson, you exude sass and style. Suitors dig watching you drive topless (in your convertible!) or playing to win at tennis. Your competitive nature turns them on -- try arm-wrestling or pillow-fighting with your date some time, and watch their passion heat up in a flash!
There's a fresh, youthful vibe about you, a hint of the tomboy that you accentuate by wearing bright colors and casual styles. You're a big flirt, and your sharp tongue can trade verbal barbs with the best of them. These qualities, along with your ready laugh and childlike enthusiasm, make your significant other feel young at heart. Surprise them with a spontaneous trip to the desert or mountains -- camping out under the stars or even chasing storms will crank your sex life up to full throttle!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Taurus women are the ultimate Earth mothers. Ruled by sensual Venus' nature-connected side, you're in touch with your instinctive bodily charms. Like Bulls Kirsten Dunst and Cate Blanchett, your sexiness comes from a delightful combo of strength and vulnerability. You know what you want -- which most find attractive -- but you're not overly aggressive about going after it. Your sensuous touch and caring heart are second only to your most compelling quality -- your sultry voice. You know the power of a gentle word at the right moment.
There's a bit of the down-home gal in you. You're confident about your creative talents, from making a home-cooked meal to cultivating prize-winning roses. Your self-assurance is a turn-on to potential mates, as is your occasional stubbornness. You're at home in your body and really get into the physical act of lovemaking. When you take your lover's hand with that knowing smile and lead them to the bedroom, they can't resist. And sharing a plate of oysters or a decadent hot fudge sundae really gets you in the mood!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20) Bubbly, changeable and a little bit fickle, Gemini women keep their lovers guessing -- and therefore always intrigued. Bombshells Marilyn Monroe and Angelina Jolie were both born under the sign of the Twins. Ruled by Mercury, your sharp wit is a turn-on. A sly innuendo from you counts more than an outright invitation from someone else. Bright and insightful, you present a mental challenge -- an appealing trait to any suitor. Though you can sometimes slip into dark moods, they don't last long. In fact, your optimism is legendary. As Warren Beatty said of his Gemini wife Annette Bening, "She has a talent for happiness."
Your curiosity knows no bounds, which is a very sexy quality. You're at your best while playing word or card games, traveling or exploring different parts of the city. With all the activities you're into, you're never boring. People love your spontaneous ideas and ability to change course quickly if plans fall through. A steamy late-night call from you will get your partner pumped up for action. Keep your sexiest body part -- your lips -- moist and kissable, and you're sure to get plenty of use out of them!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22) A Cancer woman's charm is subtle but deeply felt. It's a sense of mystery combined with a certain resilience that turns others on. Sensitive, dreamy and easily hurt, you may hide your soft underbelly beneath a hard shell like Cancer Anjelica Huston or a shy sense of reserve like Liv Tyler. Your partner loves the challenge of penetrating your shell and knowing that the exciting woman underneath is all theirs.
Ruled by the Moon, iridescent colors suit you best. Your sexiest self comes out at night, so a walk on the beach under a Full Moon is guaranteed to wow a lover. You know how to create a wonderful romantic environment with just the right music, food and décor to entice your partner. And sexually, you are incredibly responsive once you feel safe and loved. Your abundant fertility is also a turn-on -- you're a natural mother. Your breasts -- whether small and supple or big and bodacious -- are part of your special appeal. Pleasuring them puts your significant other in seventh heaven!
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) There's nothing shy about a Leo woman. You're colorful, even (dare we say it?) brash. You enjoy wearing exotic apparel and metallic hues, and you often sport a sexy mane of curls like your zodiac symbol, the regal Lion. Suitors line up in droves for your brand of flamboyant excitement. Like Leos Jennifer Lopez and Angela Bassett, your devastating figure draws them in, but your great sense of humor makes them stay. Even if not classically beautiful, your outgoing nature and instinct for fun mean you'll never lack for romantic attention.
Ruled by the Sun, your role in life is to shine. You're most appealing when basking in the spotlight or displaying your formidable creative talents. Your partner may be in awe of you at first, until they become the recipient of that warmth and big heart you're famous for. Audacious and athletic, you go for your goals yet still manage to remain deeply feminine. Whether cheering on your favorite team at a ballgame or dancing the night away, you're hot stuff. And though your lover may not admit it, they secretly find your fiery temper exciting. You may even be a bit of an exhibitionist, a trait your sweetie will adore in special performances behind closed doors!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) Virgo women are classy and self-contained, which drives potential suitors crazy. You take exquisitely good care of yourself -- and it shows. Your healthy lifestyle entices your lover … even a hard-core burger-eater will be weeding the garden and juicing organic carrots once they fall under your spell. However, your greatest appeal is your shining intelligence (your wit is legendary) and independence. You love your work, and you work hard at attaining perfection at whatever you do. Ruled by mental Mercury, your common sense is a turn-on. Your sweetheart knows you can stay calm in a crisis and solve problems quickly, which heightens your appeal.
Virgos aren't usually thought of as divas, yet Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch were both born under this sign. Your fitness and cleanliness add to your allure. Many a Virgo has the sleek and toned body that comes from regular yoga practice or gym workouts. Getting your lover to do partner yoga or take dance lessons with you is a good way to stoke the fires of desire.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) A Libra woman's cool exterior hides a passionate soul -- and would-be lovers enjoy the challenge of getting past your seeming detachment to uncover it. Like Libras Brigitte Bardot and Gwyneth Paltrow, you're often downright gorgeous and know how to use your feminine charms to great but understated effect. You make others feel more attractive, and you instinctively know how to turn your lover on by, for example, wearing silk negligees or gold stiletto heels -- and nothing else -- to bed.
Ruled by Venus, you make an art form of being a woman. You're skilled at dressing to enhance your assets and using accoutrements like scented candles and bubbling fountains to beautify your environment. But you've also got an excellent mind and sharp wit that your partner enjoys sparring with. Your most appealing feature is your eyes, which are often large and full of light. All it takes for you to draw someone in is to bat those long lashes of yours, then let nature take its course.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) Intense, smoldering and secretive, a Scorpio woman is the definition of sex appeal. Your mysterious air makes others wonder, "What is she hiding?" And girlfriend, a potential lover is likely to become obsessed with finding out! Ruled by Pluto, planet of transformation, you take your partner to new heights and depths. You're constantly reinventing yourself, which keeps things fresh and interesting. And your bitchy edge shows them you're not to be messed with (a huge turn-on to most members of the dating pool).
Your soft exterior and inner toughness are a dynamite combination, and you're often drawn to the "dark side" of existence, which would explain why fellow Scorpio Jodie Foster always takes on supernatural, psychologically probing roles. If it's hidden from the public view, then it's in your natural realm. You can ferret out your significant other's private thoughts and psychoanalyze them in a way that's a bit scary but sexy, too. Cultivate your dangerous edge by parachuting out of planes or racing motorcycles together -- that'll raise their kundalini energy!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) Daring and fun-loving, Sagittarian women exude an outdoorsy "Let's go!" attitude. This motivates their suitors to chase them -- sometimes even around the globe, if necessary! Ruled by optimistic Jupiter, you're always ready with a laugh or a funny story. Because you're constantly changing and evolving, your lover never knows what you're going to do next. Like Sagittarians Marisa Tomei and Bette Midler, you know your own mind and have spirited opinions, which makes for stimulating debates that'll get your partner's juices pumping.
Your sexiest self comes out in nature; take your sweetie horseback riding or to the archery range as a prelude to intimacy. Because you love to be on the move, a train trip or boat ride can also amp up the action. Best of all, explore a foreign country together or study a subject that stimulates your higher mind -- you'll be up hours discussing the exciting new things you've discovered. With you, the future is always bright -- and that's the biggest turn-on of all!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) There's a no-nonsense, level-headed quality about a Capricorn woman that others find irresistible. Your sweetie is in awe of your air of wisdom and self-deprecating humor. Like Capricorns Mary J. Blige and Kirstie Alley, you're a self-made woman. You're no stranger to the school of hard knocks and have learned a thing or two along the way. You keep on truckin' toward self-mastery -- inspiring your partner to go along for the ride. Ruled by taskmaster Saturn, you know how to make your way in the world, so they aren't afraid you'll fall apart on them -- though you still might do so in private!
Your earthiness is also a sexy trait. Trading massages or working out together is an excellent way to loosen up and banish any tension before being intimate. Once your lover gets past your defenses and earns your trust, they'll be floored by how comfortable you are in your own skin. And unlike some women who dry up over time, you actually get better with age -- in fact, your juiciest, most fulfilling years are often found in the second half of life!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) Brilliant and unique, the Aquarius woman is light years ahead of the rest of us mere mortals -- and the challenge of keeping up with her is a turn-on to her partner. Your bright mind and innovative ideas make you fun to be around, and you're always up for trying new things. Your partner loves it when you boldly go where no woman has gone before -- whether in the boardroom or the bedroom. Ruled by Uranus, planet of liberation and equality, you make a great friend and have a live-and-let-live attitude that's refreshing. You allow your sweetie to be who they are, as long as they do the same for you!
Like Aquarians Jennifer Aniston and Paris Hilton, you're one-of-a-kind. Some may even consider you a misfit -- but your lover knows better. They treasure your trend-setting ways, quirky mind -- even the unusual outfits you wear. At first you may have to drag them to the astrologer's office or a Habitat for Humanity work party, but they'll soon get caught up in your passion for changing yourself and the world. Your originality is the real turn-on!
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) "The iron fist in the velvet glove" was a phrase probably coined for a Pisces woman. Your seeming fragility and dreamy demeanor draw a lover in, making them think you need them. They're surprised to find out how strong you actually are -- in fact, you often end up rescuing them instead of the other way around! Like Pisces stars Drew Barrymore and Holly Hunter, your vulnerability and pluck are a winning combo -- and your ability to flow with circumstances is an added plus in your partner's eyes.
Ruled by mystical Neptune, there's an otherworldly quality about you, and your psychic impressions are usually spot-on -- which can spook a potential lover at first. But once they experience your loving kindness and lusty romantic charms, you can get away with just about anything. You're quite talented, whether at music, dance or the visual arts, and your sweetheart is apt to put you on a pedestal. Draw them into your world to balance things out. Swim, dance or see movies together, or visit art galleries and museums, and you'll soon be grooving to the same beat.
