Some people are very serious about taking star signs into account when it comes to dating.
But while you might be worried about fiery Aries clashing with stubborn Taurus on an emotional level, you might want to consider how star signs influence someone's preferences in the bedroom too, according to the Daily Mail.
Allure's astrologer Aliza Kelly Faragher has written a guide to each signs attitude to sex, from turn-ons to favoured positions.
"While some signs prefer a slower, more sensual approach to seduction like Taurus and Cancer, others are extremely aroused by hair-tousling, 'do me now' passion such as Aries and Scorpio,' she explained.
"Whatever your approach to sex, astrology can help you map your unique range of carnal impulses."
ARIES: March 21 – April 19
Aries is a natural risk taker with a fiery nature, which combined with the strength of Mars makes you bold and full of energy.
You're turned on by anything impulsive and although foreplay isn't your strong point, the opportunity to take charge gets you going.
That impulsive nature means Aries is partial to a quick tryst in an unusual spot and as ruler of the head, you'll likely enjoy extra hair tousling.
TAURUS: April 20 – May 20
It's no surprise that sensuous Taurus enjoys sensual pleasures such as bubble baths, silken sheets and luxurious massages.
As a Taurus, you're in touch with all the senses and are aroused by sound, sight, taste, smell and touch.
The missionary position with lots of eye contact is your favoured position, while the neck and throat is your most sensitive erogenous zone.
GEMINI: May 2 - June 20
Being ruled by the planet of communication Mercury means seductive talk is the way to a Gemini's heart, and they enjoy the conversation continuing during lovemaking.
As an energetic, you appreciate switching positions throughout sex.
You may even find Geminis the most likely sign to suggest a threesome as they love to explore things in multiples.
CANCER: June 21 – July 22
Casual sex is not the dream scenario for Cancer who likes to feel safe and secure in a relationship before revealing their true self.
They like to engender intimacy with physical closeness and as the sign rule by the hands, intertwining fingers, cuddling
However, once they've come out of the proverbial shell Cancerians are deeply sensual and favour wraparound positions where they can maintain eye contact and show off their intricate moves.
LEO: July 22 – August 22
It will come as no surprise that the king of the jungle likes to be the ruler in the bedroom, getting turned on by feeling important and desired.
In return, you'll be treated to big romantic gestures, elaborate dates and grand declarations of love.
If you're a Leo you're likely to enjoy seated positions in chairs that allow you to put on a theatrical display.
VIRGO: August 22 - September 22
Although Virgos are seen as innocent and maybe a little, you are anything but.
Your attitude may be a little adolescent but that means you have a teenager's fixation with sex and it's often on your mind 24/7.
As Virgo is ruled by the planet of communication Mercury, witty banter and the elevated conversation gets you going - and if a love letter is too old fashioned a spot of naughty sexting fits the bill.
LIBRA: 22 September - 23 October
You'll never find yourself unappreciated in the bedroom with a Libra as they love to worship their partner in both body and mind.
Traditional at heart, they like to be discreet and prefer to keep intimacy within the bedroom as opposed to the al fresco preferences of other adventurous signs.
A Libra lover is very giving but it's not all one sided - you will be expected to return all the favours you get.
SCORPIO: 23 October - 22 November
Scorpio is the sign most closely associated with sex and you're known for your insatiable appetites and love of a sophisticated seduction.
As a fearless sort, you're not shy about experimenting with kinkier practices such as bondage, domination and submission.
Luckily for anyone with a Scorpio lover, this intense focus on sex means your partner will be aiming for satisfaction on every level, both mind and body.
SAGITTARIUS: 22 November - 21 December
With a taste for adventure and exploration, you see sex as an opportunity to discover new things and expand your mind.
You're light-hearted and optimistic and don't tend to take sexual encounters too seriously.
Having sex outdoors in public is not for the faint-hearted but is exactly the kind of thrill Sagittarius seeks.
CAPRICORN: 21 December - 20 January
At first, you may find your Capricorn lover seems distant or unattached when it comes to matters of the heart, but this sign is a slow burner who likes to approach things slowly.
However, you should be prepared for a wild time once Capricorn feels ready to take things to the next level.
They take pride in introducing their partner to new pleasures for the first time - and being the best lover they've ever had.
AQUARIUS: 20 January - 18 February
Aquarians can also seem a little detached when it comes to love as they're more likely to be dreaming with their heads in the clouds than thinking of earthly pleasures.
You can enjoy a satisfying sex life with Aquarius though, as long as you rip up the rule book and be prepared for the unconventional to appeal to their sense of nonconformity.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of technology, so any quirky new sex gadgets are likely to spark their interest.
PISCES: 18 February - 20 March
Casual sex is a no-no for Pisceans who see it as a spiritual act, signifying the coming together of two souls.
This sign rules the feet, so a massage is one surefire way to spark the fires of passion.
Tantric sex is also an ideal practice for sensitive Pisces who likes to explore beyond the limitations of the body and go deep into the subconscious mind.
