You already know your zodiac sign can offer you intel on all different things—from what your temper is like to how to best describe your sex drive. Your sign and what’s going on in the sky also influence how you get it on. Berry has paired up with astrologer Maressa Brown to break down how you can channel the power of the stars and get the most out of your love life every week. Here’s your weekly sex horoscope for the week of November 7-13.
With Tuesday being Election Day, we’re thisclose to electing our next president! And the sky has us primed for plenty of change this week, too. Around midnight on Wednesday, Mars, which rules action and sex, moves into free-spirited, platonic-minded Aquarius, where it remains until December 19. In turn, we could all be a little more inspired to get out of our comfort zones in the bedroom — and maybe even hook up with someone who, up until now, was just a friend.
On Friday, Venus (which rules romance and money) moves into Capricorn, where it’ll hang out until December 7. Capricorn being the serious, business-oriented earth sign that it is, this transit could force plenty of DTR talks. If your cuffing season sweetie doesn’t have long-term potential, it’ll become glaringly obvious, and you may need to move on.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got the planet of communication Mercury moving into Sagittarius on Saturday (where it’ll hang out ’til December 2). This fiery energy will make us all feel a bit more social (’tis the season, right!) and straightforward. We’ll be more likely to express ourselves in an unfiltered, bold way. So, if you’re not getting what you desire out of your relationship, you could very well make it known.
Read more below to find out what this week’s forecast means for your sign—in bed.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
While artistic Venus is in your tenth house of career from Friday to December 7, you’re going to be busy working hard and turning your most creative ~vision~ into a reality—and surely, being recognized by your bosses. If you need to blow off some steam, don’t hesitate to spend free time partying with your bae or getting your flirt on with that friend you’ve been sparks with. You’ll have earned it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
While Mercury, the planet of communication, is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy from Saturday until December 2, you won’t want to hold back from sharing your steamiest fantasy with your partner. In fact, you’ll be feeling like being blunt and maybe even a bit graphic. All that chatter gets you both ridiculously hot and bothered and sets the stage for intense, orgasmic action.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
While romantic Venus is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy from Friday to December 7, you’ll want to take your relationship to the next level—whether that means by going on a second date with that cutie from Tinder or hinting that you’d love if your partner popped the question this holiday season. Your tendency is to intellectualize your emotions, but pinpointing exactly how you feel and then communicating that to your bae serves you best now.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
While Venus, the planet of beauty and love, is in your seventh house of partnership from Friday to December 7, you’ll have a better shot at reaching a personal goal or wrapping up a big project if you join forces with the object of your affection. The end result not only has you feeling empowered but boosts your chemistry in a way that makes you want to jump one another RN.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You usually have no trouble going after your desires, but once communicator Mercury is in your fifth house of romance from Saturday to December 2, you’ll be even less likely to tiptoe around what you want. Spelling out your fantasy (be it a weekend getaway or experimenting with that sex toy you bought on a whim) in plain terms, and then going with the flow leads to a positively ~blissful~ time.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Once Venus is in your fifth house of romance from Friday to December 7, luck in love is on your side. You’re apt to magically find downtime to spend with your partner or meeting potential matches in a serendipitous way. With your key planet, Mercury, transiting through your fourth house of home life from Saturday to December 2, you may be feeling like staying home, but getting out of your comfort zone — like going to that friend’s party or meeting up with that guy from Bumble — could also be well worth the effort.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
While Mars, the planet of sex and action, is in your fifth house of romance from Wednesday to December 19, opportunities to make fantasies a reality will be everywhere. As in, you might play hooky from work to meet up with your bae for a mid-day bang sesh or get swept up in a sexting marathon with that potential partner you met at a party. Yeah, it may feel a little out of the usual for you, but go with it… You won’t be sorry.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
While Venus, the planet of love, is in your third house of communication from Friday to December 7, you’ll do well to have a heart-to-heart with your partner about an emotional issue that’s been stressing you out. Sure, you wish he or she could just read your mind, but spelling out your needs gets you ~further~ now.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
While Mercury, the planet of communication, is in your sign from Saturday to December 2, your motto is tell it like it is. If that guy you’ve been hooking up with has been boring TF out of you with his same ol’ vanilla routine, or the girl you’ve started flirting with on Tinder keeps making excuses about why she can’t meet up, you’re just going to start shouting, “NEXT!” Hey, if that’s what your gut says is right, go for it. You do you.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Your social calendar is sure to be packed, and you’ll be feeling extra charismatic while Venus, the planet of love, is in your sign from Friday to December 7. Use this to your advantage by starting a conversation with the sexy guy or girl in your spin class, or treating yourself to a fancy bottle of wine and swipe sessions on Bumble when you get home from work. You may be surprised just how magnetic you are to others now…
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
After Wednesday, Mars, the planet of action and sex, will be in your sign until December 19, giving you a burst of confidence, take-charge energy. When it comes to fulfilling your desires—whether in a relationship or in bed—you’ll either take action or make a concrete plan move on. If this means you’re headed for a breakup, strive for sensitivity. Not everyone has the chill you do!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You’ll have your pick of VIP events, holiday parties, happy hours, etc. while romantic Venus is in your eleventh house of friends and networking from Friday to December 7. All that social butterflying multiples your potential for meeting a hookup or, if you’re attached, having a sexy fun time with your bae. Soak it up!
