Your 2023 Sex Horoscope Says You’ll Be Coming First

Your 2023 Sex Horoscope Says You’ll Be Coming First

Although 2023 may have started on a bit of a chaotic note in the love and sex space, we can at least count on the upcoming astrological transits for incredible opportunities for passion and sex the rest of 2023.

The astrology of 2023 will continue to usher in immense change, thanks to a few notable planetary movements: taskmaster Saturn entered watery Pisces on March 7, giving us an abundance of hope in our approach to sex (though sometimes at the expense of our boundaries); transformational Pluto briefly entered idealistic Aquarius from March 23 to June 11, encouraging us to embrace authenticity in the bedroom; and benefic Jupiter entered earthy Taurus on May 16, bringing a “slow burn” energy to our sex lives.

Additionally, with Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto all retrograde in 2023, we’ll be able to use these times as checkpoints for our sensual endeavors — opportunities to reflect, reassess, and, if necessary, redirect our passions throughout the year. There will also be some eclipses that will throw us destined curveballs in the fall, opening up new cycles of self-discovery in love, self-love, sex, and self-pleasure while encouraging us to let go of what’s no longer serving us.

Aside from this, the North Node will enter Aries and the South Node will enter Libra on July 17, and they’ll be in this axis for the rest of the year. These shifts encourage us to be selfish in the bedroom. If that feels like a negative ask, reconsider: the South Node represents the karmic past and our stuck points, and the South Node in balanced Libra may shine a light on the ways in which we’ve overcompromised in our relationships for the sake of keeping the peace. At the same time, the North Node of fate and destiny entering independent Aries reminds us that our needs matter just as much as our partners’. To tap into our inner fire and true pleasure, then, we’ll have to learn to release our desire to please our partners and to instead put ourselves first. Rest assured, doing so will reward us by helping us unlock an entirely new level of satisfaction and passion.

If there’s one main message to keep in mind as we approach intimacy the rest of 2023, it’s that we’ll need to keep our own needs and desire for sensual exploration at the forefront in order to truly enjoy an authentic and satisfying bond — not only with our partners but also with ourselves. For more specific insight into what to expect in your sex life for the rest of 2023, find your sun sign or rising sign below and see what’s being highlighted for you in the year ahead.

Aries (March 21-April 19) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Prioritize your sexual needs, Aries. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to show off in the bedroom now that Venus has entered Leo. The warm, fiery confidence of the Lion will give you a roaring sex life until Venus stations retrograde in Leo from July 22 to Sept. 3. Although Venus retrograde may pause romantic opportunities, it could be just what you and your partner need to ensure you’re both on the same page. Whether you sync back up again or move on, it’ll all be in service to a healthier, more fiery sex life.

Fate and destiny will change in your favor throughout the summer when the North Node enters your sign at the same time the South Node enters Libra in mid-July. For the rest of the year, you’ll need to focus on asserting your needs and expectations for intimacy to avoid repeating any past mistakes. Although it might be a little aggressive at times, the North Node can help you attain what you desire.

By mid-October, you’ll feel like it’s time for you to couple up — it’s not just cuffing season, it’s also the new-moon solar eclipse in Libra. This fated yet unpredictable lunation could bring a new lover into your orbit or help you take your sex life with an existing partner to the next level in an unexpected way. As Venus enters Libra on Nov. 8, you may find yourself settling into a commitment — but don’t forget yourself in this process. Remember, the theme of this year is selfishness: make sure you’re getting what you want before settling into a routine in bed.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Take advantage of new opportunities to indulge in your sexual fantasies and kinks, Taurus. But know that when Jupiter stations retrograde in your sign from June 17 to Dec. 30, this will be compounded by Uranus retrograde in your sign starting Aug. 28. Although you may feel doubtful of your sexual potency or your ability to have the type of sex you want, this is actually a beautiful opportunity to step into your authenticity. Use both retrogrades to work on feeling confident in your charisma and desires while getting comfortable with a lack of control when it comes to romance.

By the end of summer, you may feel somewhat unsure of your love life, and when Mercury stations retrograde in Virgo from Aug. 23 to Sept. 15, some of your sexcapades will get a little messy — especially if there’s a lack of boundaries or certainty about your relationship. This is where your tenacity and bullishness come in handy. All you’ll need to do to push through is be extra clear about your desires, expectations, and consent. Happily, this period of sensual revision will set you up to have informed intentions and manifestations for your love life during the new moon in Virgo mid-September. After you put in some work in the first half of the year, you’ll be rewarded: watch your sex life flourish throughout the rest of 2023.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Dive deeper into your sensual curiosities, Gemini. In the midst of your season currently, it is your time to shine with confidence, so this might be an excellent time to explore your sexual interests. Then, the Pluto retrograde in Capricorn from June 11 to Oct. 10 will only strengthen your ability to harness your power, enabling you to instill better boundaries in your intimate relationships.

Around July 6, you may need to cut any entanglements out of your life to feel more empowered during the full moon in Capricorn. If ending a FWB deal or situationship to better your sex life seems counterintuitive, think of it this way: you’re putting your entire faith in yourself as the person who’s in control of your ability to access pleasure, rather than relying on others. Knowing that you can make yourself feel good is not just confidence boosting — it also enables you to share who you are and what you want on a deeper, more personal, and more effective level with your sexual partners. That might mean opening up about a kink you’ve wanted to explore or being honest about a certain position you know is key to getting you off — and as a result, being able to have the kind of truly earth-shaking sex you’ve always wanted.

Taking advantage of the full moon can help you ease into your sexual assertion when Mars enters Libra on Aug. 27. Given that the sensual planet is in the sign of the scales, you may feel more inclined to seek out reciprocal sexual relationships where you feel a sense of peace with your partner. Expect to feel more sexually mature during the full moon in your sign at the end of November; it may even conclude a chapter of indecision. By the new moon in Sagittarius on Dec. 12, you could manifest exploring new sexual terrain with your partner. (Didn’t we say you’ll be exploring your sexual curiosities all year long?)

Cancer (June 22-July 22) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Are you ready to take your sex life to the next level, Cancer? You may notice a subtle yet powerful shift in your sex life when Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn on June 11. This astronomical event will transform your subconscious relationship with sex until Oct. 10. Secretive yet seductive, you may find that this inner transformation illuminates your sensual talents and fears. You can use this time to overcome your fear of intimacy or vulnerability since Pluto retrograde could help you become sexually savvy. Don’t be afraid to watch new genres of porn or to introduce different sex toys into the bedroom. Overcoming your inhibitions can be incredibly orgasmic!

The full moon in Capricorn in early July and the full moon in Aquarius in early August both offer opportunities to refocus. Your word of the year is “intimacy,” and these full moons will encourage you to ditch any immaturity that might be causing you to shy away from the type of deep, vulnerable intimacy that can be scary to lose yourself to. But the reward of leaning into this kind of sensual bond is indescribable — some of the best sex comes from being able to be totally bare before someone else, literally and figuratively.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Leo, your sex life is about to be incredibly unique — as long as you stay grounded in reality and don’t get too lost in fantasy. Summertime has been and will continue to be undeniably fierce, especially when the full moon in Sagittarius revved up your sensuality on June 3. Full moons are extremely potent, so this could have been the perfect time to shoot your shot with that person you’ve been crushing on or to put your desires all out in the open in an existing sexual relationship.

Another good time to be honest with what you desire in an intimate bond is coming up: Saturn stations retrograde in Pisces from June 17 to Nov. 4 and Neptune stations retrograde in Pisces from June 30 to Dec. 6, and both of these backspins will shine a light on your hidden sexual and emotional cravings. If you’ve let go of a sex partner or bedroom activity you’re no longer enjoying during the Sagittarius full moon, you can think of these retrogrades as an opportunity to fill in those spaces with the type of sex you do want to be having. That can be as simple as a position change-up (down with doggy, in with missionary) or it might be a more radical shift.

A word of warning: toward the end of summer, you may not feel your usual confident self, since Venus will station retrograde in your sign from July 22 to Sept. 3. Although this may dim your radiance, you can view Venus retrograde as a time to love and cherish every inch of your body. It could also give you a new perspective to consider under the full moon in Aquarius on Aug. 1. Putting yourself and your pleasure first may illuminate what you need or where your partner is falling short.

So although the summer might be challenging, you can expect your love life to get hot and heavy again when Mars enters frisky Sagittarius on Nov. 24. If you’ve been dying to try something new, like a toy or position, then set the intention to be more sexually adventurous during the new moon in Sagittarius in mid-December.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Virgo, it’s time to embrace your sensuality and desire for commitment. At the beginning of summer, two retrogrades throw a curveball in your sex life: Pluto retrograde entering Capricorn from June 11 to Oct. 10 and Saturn retrograde entering Pisces from June 17 to Nov. 14. Use the two backspins as a cosmic opportunity to find your sensual power and authority, which will ultimately help you set the record straight in love. Since Neptune will also station retrograde in Pisces from June 30 to Dec. 6, a movement that will illuminate your blind spots, you may have a more intuitive yet discerning approach to your romantic and sexual relationships. Take off your rose-colored glasses to get a crystal-clear view.

Work on bringing your sex life to an orgasmic culmination during the full moon in Capricorn in early July. You may feel ready to ask for something more since the lunation may help you feel more confident about expressing your sexual needs or exploring your sexual fantasies. The full moon in Pisces will follow shortly after on Aug. 30, creating a make-it-or-break-it time with your love life. Your partner may need to rise to the occasion to fulfill your needs, or this spiritual full moon could remind you to have hope that you will find your sensual soulmate — that great sex is in your future, even if it’s not with your current bedmate.

Don’t be alarmed if your confidence takes a dip when Mercury stations retrograde in your sign from Aug. 23 to Sept. 15. Although Mercury retrograde could initially ding your self-assuredness, this transit is still a sneaky time to experiment with your sensuality, charisma, and flirtatiousness. Think of Mercury retrograde as a “no harm, no foul” period in your sex life that encourages you to embrace your sensual audacity by being upfront instead of beating around the bush. Try not to overthink it. Mercury retrograde is your opportunity to be direct in the bedroom.

Toward the end of the year, you’ll have another opportunity to explore your new and old sexual wishes when Mercury stations retrograde again in Capricorn in mid-December. The beginning and end of 2023 may feel similar; they’re both times to own who you are and what you want

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Are you ready for a twist in your sensual fate and destiny, Libra? Exploring your sensual side by yourself, by experimenting with new forms of solo play, could feel like an act of empowerment, especially with Pluto stationing retrograde in Aquarius from now to June 11.

This backspin could be a good time to explore any sexual inhibitions or limitations in your relationships, which may allow you and your partner to have a more authentic connection. And while this transit can help you explore intimacy (both on your own or in a relationship), it’s best to not engage in any entanglements at this time. Consider it a good season for self-love.

By mid-July, the cosmos will align in your favor to put yourself first in and out of the bedroom, when the North Node enters Aries and the South Node enters your sign. However, you’ll have to be mindful of letting go of any people-pleasing tendencies to avoid overcompromising your wants and needs throughout this Nodal transit. Your first chance to do so will be the full moon in Aquarius on Aug. 1 since this will represent the culmination of sexual exploration. Release your inhibition during the full moon to embrace your sexual authenticity — if you can, you’ll experience some truly explosive sexual escapades. Then fast-forward to the full-moon partial solar eclipse in Taurus on Oct. 28, since your intimate bonds (or entanglements) will come to an unexpected yet destined culmination. Consider this your time to let go of any coveted yet unfulfilling bonds, while owning what you secretly desire.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 2023 Sex Horoscope

You have the power to engage in a beautifully stable sex life over messy, drama-filled entanglements, Scorpio. The new moon in Gemini on June 18 may help you feel safer testing the waters of sexual intimacy in your relationships, but allowing yourself to be vulnerable will still be difficult. Trust, this year, it’s key. You’re ready to dive deeper with people in 2023, and the sex that results from intimacy can leave stars in your eyes.

Expect the unexpected throughout the remainder of the year. Uranus will station retrograde in Taurus on Aug. 23 followed by Jupiter stationing retrograde in Taurus from Sept. 4 to Dec. 30. Both transits may upend your sex life, especially if you’ve shied away from doing a deep dive into your needs. This could be the perfect time to embrace stepping out of your comfort zone, especially as it relates to baring yourself in front of someone else, like opening up about your secret fantasies to a partner. If you take the risk, it could be a wonderfully transformative time that allows you to become more sexually and romantically authentic in your relationships. Expect this to lead to unexpected yet fated culminations with your views on intimacy and commitment during the full-moon partial lunar eclipse in Taurus at the end of October. Whatever happens is meant to be!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 2023 Sex Horoscope

If any zodiac sign is overdue for new sexual horizons, it’s you, Sagittarius. You might be juggling a few relationships at once when the new moon in Gemini begins a new cycle in relationships and commitments on June 18. If not, then the new moon could encourage open communication in your relationship, which may lead to interesting yet exciting conversations between you and your partner — you may stumble upon a miscommunication that’s been acting as a roadblock in your sex life, for instance. No matter what, you’ll have a more open-minded approach to taking the lead with physical and emotional intimacy following the new moon in Cancer on July 17. All three lunations will surely set you up for a sexually adventurous summer.

Fate and destiny will shift in your favor when the North Node enters Aries and the South Node enters Libra in mid-July. Focus on shedding any people-pleasing tendencies in the bedroom where your needs aren’t being met. Instead, use the North Node to put you on the path of sensual trailblazing. You may feel increasingly bold and confident as you pursue your desires with an assertive mentality. Given that the full moon in Aries on Sept. 29 is calling to close a six-month cycle of sexual exploration, consider this your time to let go of any limitations or inhibitions. Be honest about what you want or need since you should prioritize your desires. Whatever comes out of this full moon will impact the standing of your relationship during the full moon in Gemini at the end of November. Communicate what you need, or let your partner know if you’re ready to move on during this full moon. You’ll have an opportunity to say a final goodbye on Dec. 26, during the full moon in Cancer.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Prepare for an introspective summer as you learn more about yourself, your body, and your partners, Capricorn. When Pluto retrograde unfolds in your sign from June 11 to Oct. 10, you can use this time to amplify your attractiveness. Initially, this backspin is disempowering, and you may feel insecure. But over time, Pluto retrograde may help you see the full scope of your allure, lending you newfound sexual confidence.

Mid-July’s new moon in Cancer could be the perfect time to manifest a more empathetic and intuitive sensual relationship. Focus on nurturing the sexual awakening that could come from this new moon, but be prepared to have it unfold in an atypical yet authentic way when Uranus stations retrograde in Taurus on Aug. 23. Jupiter stations retrograde in Taurus from Sept. 4 to Dec. 30, urging you to focus on the basics of sex to feel sexually comfortable with yourself and a partner. Use this time to reel it in, focus on what you need, and build a more stable bond through sexual exploration. Spend some time on solo play and quieter, more “vanilla” partnered sex to remind yourself and your partner of your foundational likes and dislikes; this work will pay off.

During the full-moon lunar eclipse in Taurus on Oct. 28, you may experience an unexpected yet fated culmination with dating, sex, and pleasure. Although this lunation may feel destabilizing, it could allow you to break down whatever might be holding you back from greater sexual and romantic fulfillment. The full moon in Cancer will follow at the end of December, allowing you to shut down whatever’s not working in your relationships before 2023 is over, freeing you up for more fun and pleasure in the following year.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Your sex life will continue to explode, Aquarius, although summertime might be a bit messy if you aren’t careful. Beginning on June 5, Venus entered Leo, boosting your confidence to pursue a sexually fulfilling and freeing relationship. However, you will need to work on letting go of ego or pride since this may dampen your sex life. Sex is meant to be passionate, vulnerable, and raunchy. Enjoy every moment with yourself or your partner, since it can lead to greater sexual satisfaction. Regardless, Venus in Leo will give you the confidence you need to be more confident with eroticism. If you’re seeking new opportunities to explore your sexual curiosities in a lighthearted manner, then set the intention to do so under the new moon on June 18. This new cycle can help you communicate what you want to learn, explore, and try in the bedroom. Given that Mars will enter Virgo on July 10, you should also focus on reinforcing boundaries and expectations for intimate relationships. Communication will be key to avoid upsetting misunderstandings or failed dalliances, especially when Venus stations retrograde in Leo from July 22 to Sept. 3. Having fulfilling sex might not be easy during this time — but, as always, Venus retrograde will be enlightening if nothing else.

Though new moons are a great time to set intentions, be extra careful about what you wish for during the new moon in Leo in mid-August; Venus retrograde will still be going on, causing mishaps in your romantic life. Rather than trying to manifest the type of sex you want at this time, first, do your best to clear the air regarding any past sexual miscommunications or wounds before Mercury stations retrograde in Virgo from Aug. 23 to Sept. 15. That backspin will bring to light hidden desires (or relationships). In other words, if you’ve been less than honest about, say, having more than one partner or faking orgasms during sex, it might be best to hold yourself accountable before your secrets come out.

Even though the summer will be a bit messy, you can manifest more passion or intimacy during the new moon in Virgo in mid-September. Focus on ending the year with a clear idea about who you are as a partner and what you need in the bedroom so you can walk into winter with a clear head and a clear conscience.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 2023 Sex Horoscope

Continue to look for “the one” who will help you create the fireworks you’ve been dreaming of in the bedroom, Pisces. A rabbit hole of self-discovery will open in the second half of the year as Saturn stations retrograde in your sign from June 12 to Nov. 4 and Neptune stations retrograde in your sign from June 30 to Dec. 6. Both retrogrades are highly introspective, giving you the time to think about what you can improve upon as a sexual partner. You might be surprised by what kind of work you need to do, but it will be worthwhile.

Don’t be afraid to be more assertive with your boundaries and expectations when Mars enters your opposite sign, Virgo, in mid-July. Shortly after, around July 17, the new moon in Cancer will kick off a new sexual cycle. Part of this might be manifesting an emotionally intimate bond, through which your sexual expression and exploration can be amplified. However, you’ll need to let go of people-pleasing tendencies that may lead to a lack of boundaries and fulfillment when the South Node enters Libra during the new moon.

Throughout the fall and winter, there will be plenty of opportunities to reconsider what you want in your sexual life, as Mercury retrograde in Virgo unfolds from Aug. 23 to Sept. 15. With the new moon in Virgo on Sept. 14 opening up a new cycle of commitment, this could be the perfect time to manifest the sexual partnership of your dreams, whether it’s with a new connection or your current partner. You won’t have to wait long. Mid-October, your views on intimacy and sacred bonds will take an unexpected yet fated twist during the new-moon annular solar eclipse in Libra.
