If your Mars is in a Fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) you’re turned on by challenges and romantic friction. You’re classically energetic and willing to please. Fire-sign Mars is adventurous and open to new bedroom pleasures. This could be the trying-anything-once passion placement. Your love of adventure can make having sex in unusual locations exciting.
If your Mars is in an Earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) you’re sensual and turned on by things that taste, smell and feel good. Quality food and wine or an at-home massage are great ways to get your motor running. Your passionate flame may take a little longer than most to get going, but once you do, you’re ready to enjoy a long night of sensual pleasures. Your staying power is legendary!
If your Mars is in an Air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) you’re turned on by the mind. Sexy conversations are key to getting you hot in bed, so consider erotic literature or naughty texts to get things started. Continuing to communicate while being intimate is hot for you. Air signs love gadgets, so if your Mars is in one of these signs consider including some adult toys in your bedroom play!
If your Mars is in a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) you’re turned on by feelings and need to feel close to your partner emotionally before you’ll want to cuddle up physically. Your intuition about when your partner is thinking about or desiring you helps you stay connected, so honor your instincts when you get them. Spiritual or soulful sex, like Tantra, is ideal. Music is a great way to set the mood for intimacy.
