No matter how confident you might be — no matter how popular or how active your dating life — chances are, you’ve wondered, at least once or twice, how sexy you really are. It’s normal and natural to be curious about what other people find attractive about you. Is it something physical, like your gorgeous eyes or your great figure? Sure, that might be what draws someone in, at first. But as they strike up a conversation and begin getting to know you, their growing attraction is based more on your personal qualities, including that basic, essential energy that is, simply, you. Of course, it’s hard to have perspective on your own fundamental nature; good thing your Zodiac sign reveals so much about just what it is that others find appealing in you. What’s the basis of your sex appeal? Read on to find out all about what tempts your admirers most.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Ardent, energetic Aries is extra passionate in romance. You don’t have time for silly dating rules like waiting a certain number of days to call or letting the other person make the first move. Instead, you make your own rules according to whatever suits you in the moment. Competitive by nature, you love to win, which explains why you tend to get what you want in love. When your interest heats up, you pursue the object of your desires by the most direct route possible. The lucky person being swept off their feet finds this very sexy, indeed. All they have to do is figure out how to keep your interest hot!
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Sensual Taurus’s sex appeal lies in your strong, grounded sensuality. You’re a lover of sensory pleasures — a rich, delicious meal; soft, silky bed sheets; a warm, flickering fire — and you adore sharing such indulgences with someone special. You know how to make the object of your desires feel lavished with appreciation. It’s no wonder they can’t resist your charms! Behind closed doors, you’re a giving and attentive lover who can go all night. Whew, it’s getting steamy in here! Your natural, enthusiastic approach to love as well as physical pleasure is a big part of what makes you attractive to your admirers.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Witty, expressive Gemini is a natural when it comes to flirtation. A born storyteller, you have an instinct for what others find fascinating, and you definitely know how to work a crowd. Chatting up someone new and cute is no problem for you, nor is making them laugh, sigh and fall for your sharp mind and sense of humor. Your hands are as quick as your thoughts, which adds another layer to your sex appeal. Your expertise at whispering sweet, spicy nothings in your lover’s ear gets them all hot and bothered, and you definitely know how to use those clever hands in the bedroom!
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
While Cancer’s sex appeal may be a bit more understated than others’ — you aren’t exactly the exhibitionist type — your deeply emotional nature allows for quite an intense connection with your lover. Lovemaking is a significant and important act for you, and commitment is a must. When you’ve built a foundation of love and trust with your partner, you’re able to open up to them completely. That raw, emotional vulnerability is a huge part of what makes you so sexy to them. Furthermore, you’re a giver: You’re concerned with the other person’s needs first, and you know just how to make your home private, comfortable and conducive to getting a little closer.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
Of all the signs of the Zodiac, Leo might just be the most passionate. Sure, you’re naturally stylish and physically attractive, but that’s not the source of your sex appeal. No, your sexiness lies in your vibrant energy — your unflagging enthusiasm for life itself. Other people are magnetically drawn to you, as if they want nothing more than to bask in your glow. And when you’re enamored with someone, you treat them like royalty, showering them with gifts and attention. How can they resist such charms? The answer is, they can’t — especially once they get to know the true you, including the vulnerable, devoted heart that lies behind that flashy, bold exterior of yours.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
For typically shy, reserved Virgos, your sex appeal might lie in the very fact that you aren’t just playing hard-to-get — your love truly is a prize to be won through slow, steady devotion. You aren’t the type to lead with your heart, much less your libido; you need to build a foundation of trust and mutual affection before you can truly open up to someone and be yourself. That slow revelation of who you are, at your core, is exactly what draws in your admirers. They can sense that you’re someone with refined sensibilities, high standards and excellent values. They can also sense your natural, earthy sensuality, which reveals itself more and more over time.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Loving, lovely and romantic Libra — your sex appeal lies in your desire for close, harmonious connection with the one you love, and your natural good looks and sense of style only add to the package. A born diplomat, you have an innate sense of how to charm just about anyone. Your eyes are warm, your conversation is stimulating, and your smile is full of tempting promise. By the end of an evening out on the town, you may not even be aware of how many hearts you’ve captured! Your secret lies in the fact that you know just how to make someone feel special; they can’t help but respond to your magnetism.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
The sign of the Scorpion is almost synonymous with sex appeal. Whether you realize it or not — and you probably do — you have a way of sending a highly sensual message to someone just using your eyes and your body language. You possess a certain power and intensity that other people can’t ignore; they’re pulled into your orbit as if by magnetic force. You love being the one who’s in control, and that can make for some very steamy encounters in the bedroom. You can sense intuitively what your lover will find most erotic. And beyond all that, you’re a deeply emotional, devoted partner in love. Now do you see why your admirers are so hot and bothered whenever you’re around?
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
Have you ever noticed the way people seem to perk up and take notice whenever you walk into the room? That’s your sex appeal at work, Sagittarius — your bright, innate energy that sparks a natural, spontaneous reaction in your admirers. They’re drawn to your adventurous spirit, your love of knowledge and experience, and your humorous, easygoing approach to life. People sense within you a promise of excitement, stimulation and a fresh perspective. The fact that commitment isn’t really your thing only adds to your appeal; each one of your admirers fantasizes that they’ll be the one who finally tames your wanderer’s heart.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
Capricorn is known for being hardworking and career-minded, but you also possess a deeply sensual side that is very alluring for your lover — when you make the time for that side of you to come out and play. You’re always working to improve, and that goes for your relationship as well, including your lovemaking skills. Just ask your sweetheart, who is the happy recipient of your efforts to be the best! Yes, you’re rather competitive; in romance, that makes you a focused, take-charge kind of lover. Furthermore, you’re all about dedication and commitment, which are sexy attributes in themselves. Your partner adores your sensible, protective nature and your steadfast devotion.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
With that sharp, inventive mind of yours, Aquarius, you’re up for anything at least once — and that’s a huge part of your natural sex appeal. Whether your tastes in the bedroom are actually kinky or you’re just open to new experiences, your admirers are attracted to your broadminded taste for adventure. In a committed relationship, you make quite a devoted lover, yet you also keep to yourself a bit, emotionally. This, in itself, is compelling for your partner, who is constantly trying to figure out how to pull you in a little closer. You set your own rules in romance and relationships, and that special someone is just glad to be along for the ride.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Selfless, adoring Pisces — your sex appeal is rooted in the deeply emotional, intuitive connection you make with a lover. For your sweetheart, being loved by you feels almost like being worshipped. You put their needs and desires first, and want nothing more than to make them feel every bit as special as you already know they are. Your own emotional vulnerability is a big part of your attractiveness; wearing your heart on your sleeve inspires others to want to protect you. And when you share yourself physically with your lover, things get extremely steamy, as the boundaries between heart, flesh and spirit melt away.
