Know your partner's biggest turn offs according to their zodiac sign

Imagine surprising your boo with an aphrodisiac, only to learn they hate getting messy or living up to the bold dirty talk you indulged in, and you end up having a dry, somewhat rigid session in bed. The truth is, no one wants to face their pet peeves in bed. They can be huge huge turn-offs and result in a for-the-sake-of-it kinda sex. We know that every zodiac sign has different traits, likes, and preferences attributed to them. Last time around, we told you about the biggest turn-ons for each sign and it only seemed fair to let you in on the biggest turn-offs, too. Read on below to know what your partner may absolutely hate while getting it on, so you know what not to do. 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Known to be the problem-solvers and go-getters of the world, Aquarians are confident, assertive, and innovative. If your partner happens to belong to this sign, know that nothing turns them on more than an interesting conversation. They are always looking to experiment and try out new things so, their biggest turn-off would be conformity—playing by the rules and a lack of flexibility (pun intended) and spontaneity. They would be turned off by the lack of initiative to try something new—whether a new position, a location, or anything else. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Those belonging to this water sign are most often described as emotionally sensitive, compassionate, and empathetic towards others. If your partner is a Pisces, chances are they would be majorly turned off by frivolous or dry and unintellectual conversation during a steamy session. If you’re trying to turn on the heat with them, constant nagging or criticism can be off-putting for them. Pisces are creative souls and would not appreciate too much negative talk. 

Aries (March 21-April 19) 


Aries are adored for their candidness and fun-loving energy. They love it when things go according to plan and are organised. If you’re looking to switch things up with your partner who belongs to this sign, it might be best to know, that their biggest turn-off would be someone trying to control them or manipulate them into doing something. Allow them to take the reigns during steamy sessions and be honest about what you want, too—dishonesty is likely to turn them off. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

Those who have partners belonging to this sign know that they’re perpetually calm, soft-spoken, and super comfortable to be around. It would be hard to disappoint them but what can definitely turn them off would be pretentious behaviour, acting as if you want something when you don’t, and even non-committal or flaky gestures. In fact, flakiness is perhaps their biggest pet peeve, so if you want to indulge in steamy sessions with them, make sure you stick to your words (as long as you’re comfortable, of course).

Gemini (May 21-June 20) 

They’re the extroverted introverts, the never-a-boring-moment-with-them kind of people. They’re also impulsive and indecisive people. Geminis can play both sides of the game. So, it can be tricky to navigate what they like and what they don’t. However, there are certain definite turn-offs for them, including clinginess and possessive behaviour, being too serious all the time, and even a monotonous sex routine. 

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 

Cancerians are blessed with the innate ability to love their close ones unconditionally (sometimes unhealthily, too), and can be emotional and sensitive. Given this, they are most often put off by insensitive behaviour and lack of empathy. They do not appreciate being out of touch or disconnected from your emotions and a low EQ is definitely a turn-off for them. Being romantically and emotionally invested—even as you’re getting it on, might be a good idea for those with partners belonging to this sign.

Leo (July 23-August 22) 

Leos are loved for their big-heartedness and over-the-top, dramatic energy. Though they are forever ready to be in the spotlight, they are kind-hearted and generous and value one’s time, effort, and energy. A huge turn-off for them would definitely be condescending behaviour, stealing their spotlight, and not valuing them enough. If you want to show your Leo partner that you care, show them how much you appreciate them. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) 


Virgos are famously known to be the logical thinkers, the ones with a practical and pragmatic approach. They are solution-oriented and have an incessant need to be planned, clean and organised. If you’re planning to surprise your partner belonging to this sign with some whipped cream and other aphrodisiacs, you might want to hold your horses. Being messy and a tad dirty is a big turn-off for Virgos, so, if you do want to spice things up, maybe tell them your plans in advance!

Libra (September 23-October 22) 

Librans are super comfortable to be emotionally in tune with themselves and love to maintain a balance of emotions and practicality in their lives. They tend to dislike conflict and like to resolve things in a calm manner. So, you can imagine that their biggest turn-off would be someone who is argumentative or rigid. They enjoy going with the flow and wouldn’t appreciate a lack of flexibility whether in bed or otherwise. 

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) 

If your partner belongs to this zodiac, you are already familiar with their secretive nature, undoubtedly loyalty, and passion. They value honesty and detest non-committal behaviour, avoidance and pretence. If you want to turn on the heat with them, flaking on your plans would be the last thing we would recommend. Instead, try being honest and telling them what you want and watch the sparks fly!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) 

Those belonging to this zodiac are generous beyond words can describe, free-spirited, and value nothing more than their independence. It’s therefore, easy to believe that their biggest turn-off is clingy and possessive behaviour. They wouldn’t appreciate someone who is stuck in their own ways and unwilling to be open-minded, try new things or have different experiences. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) 

The other go-getters of the zodiac, Capricorns are diligent and almost always determined to get their way, constantly striving to achieve greater things in life—whether in their career or personal life. So, a turn-off for them would definitely be someone who doesn’t take the initiative to make things interesting in the relationship or someone who doesn’t put in effort. They see love and affection through actions, so a lack of it will definitely put them off.
