From our January/February 2019 issue, here's astrologer Sonia Ortiz's astrological advice for ladies looking to get laid:
Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
It’s your month, Cap! The solar eclipse is in your sun sign, triggering major life decisions around relationships. It’s time to focus on yourself, even if that means some relationships fizzle. Jan. 11 gives you the confidence boost you need to implement growth and change, which will bring transformation by Jan. 18. Feb. 7 is the best love day of the month, so get your flirt on.
Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
The lunar eclipse will end relationships that no longer serve their purpose. While letting go can be difficult, it’s essential for personal development. Releasing everything that feels heavy and outdated in January will lighten your load—and it will open you up to meeting the person you’re supposed to be with. You’ll be flying high again by Feb. 22, thanks to Mercury and Jupiter.
Feb. 19 to Mar. 20
If you’re single, the new year will bring along the right person to take you on a sexy, mysterious ride, so buckle up. If you’re already committed, it’s time to deepen the relationship. The solar eclipse will bring an opportunity to connect and heal. Things will get even sweeter on Feb. 3, when Mercury harmoniously aspects your planetary ruler Jupiter, sending your heart a-flutter.
Mar. 21 to Apr. 19
Watch out for an all-consuming work matter on Jan. 23, when powerful Mars squares off with austere Saturn, leaving you with little time for romance. If you’re in a relationship, Feb. 1 will prove to be a testing ground for you and your honey, thanks to a fraught aspect between Mars and Pluto; that said, this also gives you a chance to transform your relationship.
Apr. 20 to May 20
While you’re often cautious around affairs of the heart, you’ll want to jump right into love on Jan. 3 and 5, when Uranus activates the lunar nodes of fate. However, while you may be charging forward at the start of the new year, your partner may get cold feet; things could get testy when restrictive Saturn and argumentative Mars square off on Jan. 20.
May 21 to June 20
The bad news is that Jan. and Feb. bring a wallop of heartburn when your usually logical mind gets swept away in waves of emotion. Jan. 20 may confuse things even more with your boo, thanks to dreamy Neptune, leaving you wondering where you stand. Luckily, you’ll be able to smooth things over with an enlightening convo when Jupiter and Venus align on Jan. 22.
June 21 to July 22
The solar eclipse on Jan. 5 has you primed for partnership, and you’ll be in the mood to lock it down by Jan. 11 when the sun and Pluto hook up in the relationship sector of your chart. Old resentments come calling on Feb. 1, and Feb. 18 will be a make-it-or-break-it day with your SO, because Venus, Uranus, and the sun will be getting busy in the cosmos.
July 23 to Aug. 22
The lunar eclipse on Jan. 20 makes you especially emotional, but it also offers some relationship insight. Things have been difficult, but you’re ready to give it one last try on Jan. 22, when Venus and Jupiter link up. Your optimism and fierce loyalty mean you don’t quit when the going gets tough. Mercury sets your chart ablaze on Feb. 22, bringing tensions to the surface.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
The new year dawns with a new crush just in time for the solar eclipse on Jan. 5. This might cause more heartache than it’s worth, though. Your new beau may be invested in another, or perhaps you’re still into your ex. Either way, arguments could ensue on Jan. 18, when Mercury and Pluto aspect each other. Be wary, and keep your options open.
Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Just when you’ve put a pause on romance, Jan. 20 brings a new flirtation to life when you least expect it. A longtime friend or social media connection could be harboring some feels for you, but it may take a long time to meet up. Indulge yourself anyway—sexting isn’t usually as good as the real thing, but it can certainly be fun for everyone.
Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
The lunar eclipse leaves you yearning for a new romance. In Jan., try an app like Bumble so you can choose who to message. Things will heat up by Feb. 19, when Uranus hits Mars (your planetary ruler), setting off sparks and starting a monthlong love affair with your new crush. Just take things slowly. Don’t rush love this time, in order to ensure longevity.
Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your intense need for freedom may leave you a singleton after the solar eclipse, especially since Jan. serves as your annual reminder to work on yourself. Currently, you feel stuck in the mud, especially on Jan. 11 and Feb. 19, when Neptune holds you back, but you’ll be feeling lusty on Jan. 18 and 22, when Uranus and Jupiter get sexy with each other.
