Sexual chemistry is mysterious. We can't always explain why we desire someone or feel a ping of attraction. This feeling bypasses our brains, makes us feel alive, and enhances all human communication. Sex can mark the beginning of a romance, a marriage, or an outrageous fling. There is just some special tingle between you and that person that only one thing, sex, will satisfy. Sometimes one person has the feeling and the other doesn't. Not to worry — with a little effort and this handy book, you will be prepared to do everything possible to encourage a sexy relationship and get to know your own sexual personality.

There is a lot of sexual posturing in the media today, and a great deal of talk about who is sexy and who is not. Sex sells cars and clothing, and in the movies we are titillated by passion. The media give us lots of images and sexy ideas, but these images may not reflect our own sexual personalities, which are as individual and varied as other parts of our personalities. Astrology is one of the finest ways of investigating the unique currents of energy and desire that influence a person's sexuality. Understanding your lover's Sun sign gives you a personal sex manual to guide you toward what you will both enjoy.

As you read this book, you will begin to appreciate the myriad ways people express themselves. The “Hot and Not-So-Hot Combinations” sections deal with the archetypes of astrology. Many “not-so-hot” matches, or traditionally challenging combinations, have enjoyed great flings or long relationships. If you find that you are attracted to someone who doesn't rate according to the good matches, follow your own instincts, heart, and libido. The description of these matches is intended to give you a guideline, not permission or denial. Sexual chemistry is, after all, somewhat unfathomable.

As you read this book, you will notice that each sign has several aspects. A sign has a gender (male or female) and an element (water, fire, air, or earth). All the water and earth signs are considered female, and all the air and fire signs are considered male. In addition to its element, each sign is categorized as one of three qualities: cardinal, fixed, or mutable. The cardinal signs initiate and lead each season; the fixed signs reign when the season is well established; and the mutable signs are changeable, partaking of one season and moving into the next one. Finally, each sign has a ruling planet that exemplifies the characteristics of the sign. Check Appendix A to find the gender, element, quality, and ruling planet of your sign.

The two astrological planets that most concern sexual appetites, desires, and styles are Venus and Mars. Venus, or Aphrodite in ancient Greek mythology, was the goddess of beauty and erotic love. Mars, or Ares, was the god of war. There you have the pleasure and battle between the sexes in a nutshell. All people have Venus and Mars located in a sign in their charts, and the placement of Mars and Venus will describe the yin and yang, or receptive and assertive, dynamic in their lives. The placement of Venus and Mars has nothing to do with sexual preference, as a man can be very yin and receptive, and a woman very yang and assertive. In addition to reading the information included in the Sun Sign Chart, consider the placement of Venus and Mars in your and your lover's charts. You will find the astrological placements according to birth year.

Sex requires two to tango, and the insights in The Everything ® Sex Signs Book, 2nd Edition were written for both men and women. Whether he is the pursuer and she is the pursued, or vice versa, getting to know your sex sign profile will encourage you and your lover to communicate in the most delightful and intimate way possible. Don't think too much. Read this book, feel, and explore. It will bring smiles to your and your lover's faces.
