Hey baby, what's your sign? Check out our astrological advice for ladies looking to get laid from the back pages (wink wink) of our October/November 2017 issue, by astrologist Sonia Ortiz (and illustrated by Ada Buchholc).
Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Venus enters Libra on October 15, so get ready for some major flirting and fast luck in the dating department. Expect romances to heat up by the 22 when Mars slides into Libra’s DMs, but things slow down and get serious by November 2 when Saturn squares Chiron. Secrets may be revealed, but don’t panic; this will only bring you closer to your honey.
Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10, which will open your dating pool to folks you may have been too shy to approach before. Mercury hits your sign on October 17, making you extra open and vulnerable. November 4’s full moon in Taurus will have you planning for what you want for your future. Perhaps it’s time to pay for dating apps instead of settling for freebies?
Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
The full moon in Aries will bring on a health kick, so get ready to shed your skin and make your outsides match your insides. You’ll also want to make sure that your bedroom is an extension of yourself—purchasing new lingerie and clothes won’t hurt either. Once Mercury moves into Sag on November 5, you’ll be less afraid to speak your mind and express your needs.
Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Jupiter will be helping you get lucky this month. But be warned, it will be a series of flings and nothing too serious. This will be the ultimate self-esteem boost. Once Venus enters Scorpio, you’ll take yourself more seriously and decide what goals you want to set. When Saturn squares Chiron on November 2, you’ll be forced to look inward and heal old heartbreaks.
Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
The Sun, Venus, and Mars will be hanging out in Libra in October, making you feel aloof. Beware of routine sex—your partner will notice. Scorpio brings the moody vibes, perking you up after November 5. Saturn trines Uranus (har har) on November 11—this means the planets are three signs apart—which may lead to a giant blowout with your partner, some making up, and a breakthrough.
Feb. 19 to Mar. 20
Heartbroken Pisces will break out of their shells when Mercury hits Libra on October 5. Get offline, and go out with friends. An emphasis on being social will attract new partners into your life. November’s energy may bring on a work-related love affair or flirtation, but watch out for drama. Chiron and Saturn come for you with a major reality check on November 2.
Mar. 21 to Apr. 19
Falling in love is easy this October. Expect romance and sweetness more than anything thanks to a boost from Venus, which enters your opposite sign, Libra, on October 15. Things will get deeper with whomever you are seeing once Venus moves into Scorpio on November 7. You may end up breaking the hearts of your admirers to go the distance with your honey.
Apr. 20 to May 20
This October, a full moon in Aries will help you prioritize your needs above all others. People may try to buy their way into your heart, but don’t expect to get off scot-free if you accept a gift without saying thanks. November 4’s full moon in Taurus, along with Saturn squaring Chiron, may have you compromising or letting go of someone who ultimately doesn’t suit you.
May 21 to June 20
Love is in the air, but be wary of hitting it and quitting it. It’s best to find depth and things to talk about with the people you are attracted to than go on a Tinder marathon with a bunch of nobodies who will waste your time. Get ready to get deep in your feels once Venus slips into Scorpio.
June 21 to July 22
Your love life is nobody’s business these days. Even if your friends mean well, you need to make your own decisions about whom you’re loving and lusting after in mid-October. Things lighten when Mercury enters Sagittarius on November 5, so expect lots more fun on the dating front. You may find that a friendship can turn into something more when least expected.
July 23 to Aug. 22
Most of October may seem extra dark and stormy, but things will work out for you before Halloween. With Scorpio moving into Jupiter on October 10, you’ll be questioning yourself a lot and wondering if things are even worth it, but don’t stress. November 11 shows promise thanks to a Uranus (don’t laugh—OK, laugh) trine with Saturn that will send you karmic and romantic retribution.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Watch out for back-stabby friends who don’t want to see you happy. They may stifle your dating life with gossip and bullshit you don’t need or deserve, and ain’t nobody got time for that. New relationships will lead to a better inner circle that will welcome you with open arms. Once your social overhaul is over, you’ll find your people and new opportunities for love.
