Aries are great leaders and initiators, which makes you the more forward partner when it comes to initiating intimacy. As a fire sign, you tend to live and act in the moment, so you might catch your partner off-guard with your bold and forward approach to make-out sessions.
However, there's no denying your skill. As the sign ruled by Mars, the planet that governs passion, you certainly know how to turn up the heat. When it comes to kissing, Aries are hot, heavy, and passionate with lots of tongue activity. You are intense.
Taurus have a reputation for being a bit serious, but you're a totally different person when it comes to matters of the heart. You're incredibly sensual and love taking your time with everything—and kissing is no different.
As the sign ruled by the planet of love and beauty, your Venusian energy makes you an extremely giving lover. Rather than rush through things, you like to work your way up from soft, sweet kisses to passionate embraces and lengthy lip-locks. You prefer slow, passionate, and decadent make-out sessions with lots of caressing.
You love being spontaneous in your make-outs, Gemini. You're a social butterfly known for your gift of gab and linguistic abilities, so it's safe to assume you know how to work your mouth.
"Gemini kisses are quick and punctuated with bits of conversation between kisses that lead up to one big smooch." says astrologer Lisa Barretta. You prefer to play hard to get at first, but if your partner can keep up with your razor-sharp wit, you're both in for a laughter-filled smooch session that will last all night long.
You're very touchy-feely when you kiss, Cancer. There is a lot of nurturing emotion in your sweet and tender kisses. As the sign ruled by the emotional moon, you're sentimental by nature, so it makes sense that you can't help but kiss in a way that completely reflects your feelings.
You're a dreamy and gentle kisser who builds tension up slowly and likes to finish with a long snuggle session. Eye contact with your partner is a definite must, as well as kisses that are sweeping, romantic, long, and deep. Your ideal kiss will have you feeling as though you're in a fairytale.
