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 28-December 4.
You’re likely going to be just getting back into the daily grind after the long holiday weekend when a burst of take-charge energy strikes, thanks to a new moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday. A new moon is usually the perfect time to plant seeds you want to see grow or get the ball rolling on a big project. But because this particular new moon has a challenging aspect to Neptune—the planet of spirituality that has a way of blurring facts and rational thought— scandal and misinformation may be dominating headlines. And in our personal lives, it’ll be important to try not to get carried away by unrealistic aspirations.
At the same time, lofty, ambitious goals (like shooting to breastfeed a bit longer than you initially planned or starting that workout routine to to stay fit and energized through the holidays) are encouraged, because on Thursday, go-getter Mars in Aquarius forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in Libra—something that happens just once this year—giving us the drive and good fortune to make a dream come true.
Finally, on Friday, the planet of communication Mercury moves ahead in Capricorn, where it’ll remain until its retrograde begins on December 19. This energy is all about putting your nose to the grindstone to get any and all important to-dos (shopping for the kids’ holiday gifts or maybe heavier-duty stuff like checking in on finances with your partner) are checked off your list.
Read more below to find out what this week’s forecast means for your week—in bed.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon in your ninth house of adventure forms a negative angle to mystical Neptune in your twelfth house of spirituality, you may want to fulfill a bold fantasy with your bae only to find you’re coming up against unexpected roadblocks (like a friggin’ work deadline or coming down with a rando, post-Thanksgiving cold). So, just getting the ball rolling with some flirtatious talk about what you want to do might be all you can do—and, actually, enough for now.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You could be all about spending the night in with your partner and letting yourselves get a bit carried away with the wine and some pizza, Netflix, and whatever comes after that around Tuesday, when the new moon is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. But because there’s a negative aspect to spiritual Neptune in your eleventh house of networking, commitments to colleagues or friends (like that pesky happy hour you planned last month) may come first. Do what you gotta do, and take heart that anticipation may make for an even hotter time between the sheets.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Spontaneity and enjoying carefree fun makes sparks fly around Thursday, when go-getter Mars in your ninth house of adventure forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your fifth house of romance. Maybe you’ll decide to hit up that new ice skating venue in town with your bestie and meet someone in the crowd, or you and your partner will venture out to try an exotic restaurant. Let the evening take you wherever it may, and you might end up floating on air.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Thanks to lucky Jupiter in your fourth house of home life forming a positive angle to go-getter Mars in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, a cozy night in with your bae is all you want and a totally realistic plan. Just make sure you speak up about what you really want, and don’t second-guess yourself. Get ready for major fireworks.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Around Tuesday, the new moon in your fifth house of romance has you dreaming of going out with that cute guy you’ve been flirting with on Bumble or hitting up your favorite wine bar with your bae. But because the moon is making a difficult angle to mystical Neptune in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, what you’re envisioning as your ideal may not be completely rooted in reality, and miscommunication or confusion could take your plan in a whole different direction. Go with the flow, and you’ll have just as much—or maybe even more—fun.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
While communicator Mercury is in your fifth house of romance from Friday until December 19, all you want to do is flirt and send sassy sexts and put your quick wit to work for you on your love life. If you’re attached, you could get super-assertive about making one-on-one time with your partner a priority. If you’re single, you may even start treating dating like a part-time job. That’s cool, as long as you’re having fun.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon is in your third house of communication, forming a negative angle to mystical Neptune in your sixth house of routine, you may want to broach an emotional topic with your partner or that guy or girl you’ve been hooking up with recently. Sharing what’s in your heart RN is definitely wise, but don’t be surprised if you initially struggle to get a grasp on where exactly to go from here. Patience leads to clarity.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Around Tuesday, when the new moon in your second house of income forms a negative angle to spiritual Neptune in your fifth house of romance, you’ll want to go after a big project at work or maybe even a different gig completely, only to worry it’s going to dig into valuable time with your bae. If your gut tells you the professional move is right, don’t pass it up. The conflict with your personal desires may actually not be as big and hairy as it initially seems.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Around Tuesday, the new moon in your sign will motivate you to go after an ambitious goal, like maybe actually going out with someone you’ve met online instead of continuing to flirt via messenger or getting into a fitness routine with your partner. At the same time, the moon’s challenging aspect to spiritual Neptune in your fourth house of home life may tempt you to stay in and stick to your usual Netflix and rosé routine. See if you can split the difference—you may be pleasantly surprised that the tough part was well worth your effort.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Communicator Mercury enters your sign on Friday, where it remains until it goes retrograde on December 19. You’ll get a burst of confidence that makes it even easier to share your desires with your partner. Whether it’s a winter vacation you crave or flirting with a bit of exhibitionism or power play, being as straightforward and ~detailed~ as you can stand ensures you get exactly what you want. Enjoy!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Around Thursday, go-getter Mars in your sign forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your ninth house of adventure, and getting out of your comfort zone is a must. Maybe you’ll want to take an impromptu trip up to that Christmas tree farm and take sexy pics with your partner (a la Bachelor in Paradise‘s Jade and Tanner!) or try that new barre-spin studio with your BFF—and see if you catch anyone’s eye after class. Whatever you decide to do, putting yourself out there pays off.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
That scenario you keep having dreams about, looking up porn related to, and buying lingerie for? Yeah, make it a reality around Thursday when go-getter Mars in your twelfth house of spirituality forms a positive angle to lucky Jupiter in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Just bear in mind that the clearer your vision, the easier it is to take concrete action—and get your desires fulfilled ASAP.
