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 December 26-January 1.
Welcome to that weirdly quiet week between Christmas and New Year’s! Although, this year, we’ve got Hanukkah in full swing, it’s usually a pretty chill, vacation- and R&R-filled time. That said, the sky is filled with action, which may very well affect any ~action~ you’re gonna get this week.
For starters, Monday marks an aspect we only see once every 14 years: big picture Jupiter in Libra opposes change-maker Uranus in Aries, and out-of-the-blue events can throw us for a loop and have a reverberating, ultimately positive effect.
On Wednesday, the sun and Mercury pair up in Capricorn, which can make you more confident about how you express yourself. Then, on Thursday, a new moon (also in Capricorn!), is like New Year’s arriving early, urging you to think about how personal goals have played out over the past year and contemplate what you want to achieve in 2017.
Hang onto that clarity as you head into New Year’s Eve, because that night, go-getter Mars and dreamy Neptune pair up in Pisces, and it’s easier than usual to go way too overboard on drinking too much and other escapist behaviors. Sure, this can be fun for a sec, but may also make for some regrettable actions, so proceed with caution, girl.
Read more below to find out what this week’s forecast means for your sign—in bed.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
You’re in for a wild ride, Aries!
A completely rando turn of events on Monday may throw a wrench in your relationship or the current trajectory you’ve been on with that potential bae. This is thanks to lucky Jupiter in your seventh house of partnership opposing revolutionary Uranus in your sign. It may take you a sec to absorb what just happened and figure out the best way to move forward. Take the time you need, and trust it’ll turn out OK in the end.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Be sure not to party too hard this NYE, Taurus.
You may be tempted to ring in 2017 by overdoing the drinking, the eating, and maybe the flirting…with the wrong guy or girl. That’s because gung-ho Mars and dreamy Neptune are paired up in your eleventh house of friendship on New Year’s Eve, messing with your sense of when to say when. Ask a friend to be your wing woman or man—not just to help you seal the deal on that midnight kiss but also help you have fun without getting into too much risky business.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Change can be super-sexy this week, Gemini.
If you’ve been thinking about injecting your sex life with new energy—maybe by swiping around on Tinder or experimenting with new positions with your partner—you’ll have a unique chance to get the ball rolling, around Thursday, when the new moon is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. Coming up with a resolution that’ll rock your world comes ~naturally~!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Have that tough conversation sooner rather than later, Cancer.
Discussing a sensitive subject with your bae—or that ex or that potential S.O. you’ve been wanting to open your heart to—is easier than you think it’ll be this week, especially around Wednesday when the confident sun and communicator Mercury pair up in your seventh house of partnership. You may want to rehearse what you’ll say ahead of time, but no worries. Trust yourself to go with the flow, and the upshot could actually surpass your expectations.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You do you, Leo, but you’ll also do well to watch yourself.
You may feel like you’re up for just about anything on New Year’s Eve when go-getter Mars pairs up with dreamy Neptune in your eighth house of sexual intimacy. The tendency here, though, is to go way overboard with those Fireball shots, and then do something (or someone) you wouldn’t have been as likely to do without the liquid courage…for better or worse. So, do your best to take it slow, and the bang sesh that manifests will be even more satisfying.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Whatever you dream right now you will make a reality, Virgo.
Visualizing exactly what you want out of your love life in the coming weeks and months can end up being especially productive, because around Thursday, the new moon falls in your fifth house of romance. Make a vision board, write in your journal, or just confide in your BFF. As long as you’re being true to yourself, you’ll make even those wildest daydreams come true.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your love life is about to get a shot of adrenaline, Libra.
If you’ve been waiting til the time is just right to move in with your partner or to give dating another shot, you’ll do well to go for it after Thursday when change-maker Uranus ends its five-month retrograde and moves forward in your seventh house of partnership. Sure, because Mercury is retrograde ’til January 8, it may be a slow start, but as long as you’re chasing down your desires, you’re right on track.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Express yourself, Scorpio, and you won’t be sorry.
There’s no time like the present to speak up about that fantasy you’ve been wanting to act out, especially around Wednesday when the confident sun and Mercury pair up in your third house of communication. You’ll get a burst of take-charge energy that makes it easier than ever to get exactly what you want from your partner. And your head and heart are in sync to boot. Enjoy!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Going with the flow is about to get much easier, Sag…
It may have been tough over the past five months to be impulsive and playful with your partner or out and about with friends, because of change-maker’s retrograde in your fifth house of romance. But after Thursday, it finally moves forward, heightening the potential for sudden run-ins with that hot guy or girl or to fit quickies with your partner into your hectic sched. The cooler you are with spontaneity, the easier it’ll be to find your ~bliss~.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Fulfilled desires are easier to come by now, Cap.
Goal-setting is easier than ever around Thursday when the new moon is in your sign. It’s like your very own personal New Year’s a couple days before we hit 2017. Take advantage by setting your intentions for your relationship, or maybe just sex life, of your dreams. Be very clear about your desires, then take the first step (like sending a sext to your partner or that potential bae). Whatever comes next is yours for the taking…
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Tell it like it is, Aquarius!
Speaking your mind, especially in an off-the-cuff kind of way will feel easier after Thursday when change-maker and your key planet Uranus ends its five-month retrograde and moves forward in your third house of communication. Use this energy to tell your partner about that hot AF fantasy (flirting with exhibitionism or BDSM?). The conversation sets up some major fireworks for NYE (and before and after)!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Prepare to get swept off your feet on NYE, Pisces…
You usually have no problem “scripting” and living in your own version of reality, but NYE will have even more of a dreamlike, unreal quality for you, thanks to go-getter Mars and Neptune—the planet that inhibits rational thought—pairing up in your sign that night. The best way to take advantage: Try role-playing with your bae, or enjoying some over-the-top, dramatic flirting with that hot stranger. To say you’ll be charismatic and get what you want all night long is an understatement.
