From our October/November 2018 issue, Sonia Ortiz shares her astrological advice for ladies looking to get laid.
Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
As your planetary ruler, Venus, glides backward this month from Scorpio to your sun sign, you’ll have a chance to reconnect with your partner and chart new territory with some roleplay. The planet of love and sex hits Libra right on Halloween. What better way to kick off the witchiest season than to seduce your lover in costume? Let your imagination run wild with dress-up fantasies.
Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
You’ll be feeling spooky ‘n’ sexy when the new moon slides into your sign on November 7, even though Venus retrograde makes everything love-related extra confusing. When Mars enters Pisces on November 15, you’ll feel adventurous and open to expressing your deepest feelings. Explore your sensuality with a practice like tantra, explorative massage, or gazing meditatively into your lover’s eyes.
Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your ruling planet, Jupiter, will align with your sign on November 8, bringing you an extra dose of hot sex and good luck—think of it as a horn of plenty. Although you’re famous for your practically pathological need for freedom and adventure, you’ll be tempted to get deep with a potential romance when Mercury retrogrades in your sign on November 17.
Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
A friendship may blossom into something more as someone close to you has captured your heart (and other parts) recently. You’ll consider making a big move on October 5 when Venus retrogrades, but you may do better to have a deep, sexy talk, instead. Don’t hesitate to act on November 6; the Scorpio new moon the next day will steam things up between you two.
Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
It’s time to decide if a casual sitch is worth your energy. You’re more inclined to work things out on November 8, when Jupiter enters Sag and we’re in the shadow of Mercury retrograde. (It’s easier to redefine relationships during Mercury retrograde, which begins November 17.) Meanwhile, the Gemini full moon on November 23 will have you flying high with a major confidence boost.
Feb. 19 to Mar. 20
You’re a true romantic and daydream about being whisked away and ravished by your ultimate lover. Good news! It’s quite possible that your dream will come true in October. Hot, steamy sex with the added bonus of delectable, warm cuddles on those chilly October nights may develop into a deeper, longer-lasting partnership on or around November 8, when Jupiter enters Sagittarius.
Mar. 21 to Apr. 19
While your sex drive is often on fire, the next two months will have you looking for a slow simmer, especially during the month of October. November brings a resurgence of passion and will inspire you to connect with lovers through your sensual nature via like-minded, and probably physical, pursuits. This is especially true during the full moon in Gemini on November 23.
Apr. 20 to May 20
Venus retrograde will make your love life crazy for the next two months, resulting in lots of erratic behavior from the people around you. You like things slow, steady, and predictable, but Venus will give you a flair for spontaneous thrills and even taboo acts. You may be attracted to saucy stuff that surprises you, but don’t be afraid to get shaken and stirred.
May 21 to June 20
The new moon on October 8 will bring an enticing new squeeze into your life, possibly a fling or one-night stand whom you’ll consider committing to on November 8. Don’t rush in too quickly, though! You may rethink everything during Mercury retrograde. The best advice is to commit to not committing. Take things slowly, see how everything plays out, and most importantly, have fun.
June 21 to July 22
You usually stay safe in your shell, but get ready to emerge in October. You may safely retreat in November, but be sure to get your fill while you’re inspired. Uranus retrogrades on November 6, where it will stay until January, 2019. This major event will inspire you to focus on developing your truest self. Start planning your next big moves.
July 23 to Aug. 22
October makes you feel like a lone wolf, sexing it up and turning heads with confidence while committing to no one but yourself. Things change in November when lucky Jupiter links up with fiery Sagittarius, bringing lots of fun and a new crush into your line of sight. Expect to have your dance card filled with great parties and flirting until the end of the year.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
As Venus retrograde and Mercury retrograde move through your chart, the next two months will remind you that your best source of foreplay lies between your lusty mind and your sweet mouth. You’re about to have some sexy pillow talk with your babe either in person or via text. Use your earthy, sensual way with words to express your deepest fantasies! It will drive them wild.
