You already know your zodiac sign can offer you intel on all different things—from how you handle your temper 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 21-27.
On Monday, the sun moves from intense, emotional Scorpio into adventure-seeking Sagittarius — where it remains until December 21 — just in time for lots of holiday time fun. Still, you’re already steeling yourself for a Thanksgiving run-in with that annoying AF family member or someone getting agitated over a political conversation, right? And the main astrological aspect of the day could have you on edge, too. Jupiter — the planet of higher learning and expansion — in Libra forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in Capricorn, and we’ll be tempted to go overboard (with food or booze or aggravating topics of conversation), setting us up for conflict and stress. Whoo hoo!
A bit of silver lining: On Friday, the planet of love and beauty Venus and transformative Pluto pair up in Capricorn, shedding the spotlight on a situation regarding love or money, and making it easier to identify a winning game plan.
Read more below to find out what this week’s forecast means for your week—in bed.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Around Thursday, when Jupiter in your seventh house of partnership forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your tenth house of career, you may realize you’ve taken on way too much for work and feel even more stressed because your bae just doesn’t understand. Do what you need to do and try to take it all in stride. It may not seem like it, but there is enough time in the day for work and play.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’ll want to open up about that fantasy or that erotica you’ve been reading around Wednesday when communicator Mercury and taskmaster Saturn pair up in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Basically, you’re feeling like being bold and unapologetic about your desires, and you should totally own that. One candid conversation could set you and your bae down a sexy new path.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Around Thursday, you’ll want to meet up with that guy you’ve been flirting with on Tinder or haul your partner off from staring at the football game so you can hookup in the basement, thanks to big picture Jupiter in your fifth house of romance forming a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. You want what you want now—and in a major way. But your tendency to go too far too fast may set you up for disappointment. Be a bit more measured and strategic, and you’ll have even more fun.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Around Thursday, when philosophical Jupiter in your fourth house of home life forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your seventh house of partnership, you may have to play ref between your bae and your family if they clash. Or you could be torn between spending the holiday with his or her family and your own. Ugh. There’s really no other way to go but through it. Try not to go overboard with the pinot grigio in the meantime.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Around Wednesday, communicator Mercury and taskmaster Saturn pair up in your fifth house of romance, and you’ll be all about making big plans with your partner or the ~object of your affection~ (like booking a winter vacay or just plotting out the best way to squeeze in bang sesh while you’re at your parents for the holiday). Don’t take yourself too seriously, and all your fantasies should fall right into place.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Prioritizing one-on-one time with your partner or crush comes naturally around Friday, Venus — the planet of love and beauty — and transformative Pluto pair up in your fifth house of romance. You’ll feel like taking advantage of this by hitting on some tough emotional issues (like finally DTR?), really baring your soul, and hope that takes your connection to the next level. If it does, sweet, and if it doesn’t, at least you’ll have a concrete idea of where you stand.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You may have to deal with the one thing you can’t stand: conflict, around Thursday when philosophical Jupiter in your sign forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your fourth house of home life. You may need to stand up to an outspoken family member about your beliefs or speak up if a pushy in-law tries to co-opt your favorite Thanksgiving tradition. Taking breaks (think sexting your partner from across the room!) helps you remain relatively calm through any aggravating AF situation.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You’ll want to get real with your S.O. about your long-term partnership goals around Friday, when romantic Venus and transformative Pluto pair up in your third house of communication. Open lines of communication are yours to take advantage of now. Even if the response isn’t what you had hoped for, at least you know now that it’s time to move TF on and go for what you truly need and deserve.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Around Wednesday, communicator Mercury and taskmaster Saturn pair up in your sign, and you’ll have a once-a-year opportunity to research and map out a game plan for achieving big picture goals. Share your excitement with your bae. If they’re not totally on-board, supportive, and making you feel even more confident and motivated, it may be time to reassess your relationship—or at least have a tough convo about expectations. You’re a shooting star, damnit!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Around Thursday, philosophical Jupiter in your tenth house of career forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your sign, and you may be banging your head against the wall from stress about all of the shit on your to-do list. Hey, it’s all good. No one expects you to be Superwoman, and it is a holiday weekend. Just do what you can, and then blow off some steam by dragging your partner off for some stress-relieving sexytimes.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Around Friday, when romantic Venus pairs up with transformative Pluto in your twelfth house of spirituality, you’ll probably just want a bit of time to yourself. Don’t apologize. Just explain what you need to your partner or your loved ones, and then go do you. Trust that the op to recharge will make you much better able to handle all the high-energy festivities with others—and put in a sweeter, more generous mood with your bae.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Around Thursday, Jupiter in your eighth house of sexual intimacy forms a negative angle to Pluto in your eleventh house of networking, and holiday get-togethers could interfere with your big plans for spending one-on-one time with your partner. Just when you think you’ve got a moment to yourselves, there’s something else to be done. Try to reframe the situation: All that anticiption will make it even hotter when you’re finally able to hook up!
