With so many things going on in the world and our busy lives during the autumn season, it's easy to forget what's really important. You won't want to do that this fall, though, because the planets' crazed ways of hooking up could actually make it a hot time for you -- and for love. Get the whole fall love story for your horoscope sign now!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Fall starts out with a bang and a lot of pitter-patter in the heart for you, thanks to a New Moon in your 7th House of Partnership on Sept. 27. Make a fresh start or a definite choice that will help you take advantage of Venus in amorous Libra through October 8. After that, life will become exceptionally warm and toasty as Venus ignites your 8th House of Sex and Intimacy through Nov. 2. Those lusty nights will make great insulation against cooling temperatures! If you're unattached, planetary effects could help you open up your heart and dive straight into the waters of love.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You have a lot to offer, and now that Jupiter in your sign has put you in a very generous and outgoing mood, you'll want to share the things and the feelings you have at your disposal. Any partner who's lucky enough to come across you, including the one you might already be attached to, should be extremely responsive to every look, touch and caress you have to offer. If you're looking for a special date to celebrate, choose Oct. 26, when the New Moon in your 7th House of Connecting offers an opportunity to ignite the kind of passion that keeps all your highly elevated senses in balance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You might not start off the fall season feeling all that romantic, with stodgy old Saturn reminding you of what you want (and don't want) in a mate. Mercury's retrograde in your 7th House of Partnerships from Nov. 24 - Dec. 13 will encourage you to stop and smell the beautiful flowers of love, perhaps even from a past liaison. If you still feel distracted and disinterested come Thanksgiving, that should change when Luna, goddess of the soul, tag-teams you with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius and your 7th House of Partners on Nov. 25, and a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign on Dec. 10. By then, everything you thought about preferring to be free and easy could do a total about-face, and you'll be all goo-goo eyed in time for that New Year's kiss.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Powerful changes about being part of a couple are shaking you up now, as Pluto continues to dictate the terms of your partnerships from your 7th House of Romance. It's hard not to feel as though you're being overpowered; so developing trust will become crucial. With Neptune moving retrograde through your 8th House of Intimacy, it's easy to get hung up on past disappointments. Let all of that go and take a leap of faith when Neptune pushes its cloudy self back into forward motion after Nov. 9.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
If you're already in a relationship, you might not be paying enough attention to your partner these days. After all, with Mars in your 1st House of Identity and your 2nd House of Self-worth, it's hard not to put most of your energy into individual efforts. If you want someone to come into your life, you can find lots of opportunities later in November. Venus and the Sun will be activating your 5th House of Romance and Dating from Nov. 22 - 25, so it looks like Thanksgiving will be the best time for you to focus on the give-and-take of a loving partnership. Be sure to show your gratitude!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your relationships haven't been what you'd call "normal" or "predictable" for some time now, thanks to the way the erratic effects of Uranus have swept through your 7th and 8th Houses of Partnerships and Sex. Although you like to think of yourself as intrinsically stable, right now you're feeling far more fly-by-night than you'd like to admit. If you're in a relationship, let it be known to your partner that you're going to need a lot more excitement than what the same old thing is going to bring. If you're looking for love, partners may come ... and then go. Don't pressure them, or yourself, for that matter.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There's a good reason why you like the fall season so much! The planets always seem to align to enhance your attractiveness and bring you a bounty of love and romance as autumn leaves trickle to the ground. This year will be no different, as the New Moon in your sign inspires you re-make your image on Sept. 27, and romance-enhancing Venus graces your sign through Oct. 8. With Uranus in Aries, your taste in potential partners -- as well as your view of the one you're with (if you're already attached) -- could shift drastically. Remain open to all sorts of changes and you'll never be bored with the infinite possibilities before you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You're probably already enjoying a great deal of good luck in your partners these days, thanks to the generous way Jupiter, in your 7th House of Partnerships, sends you a ton of great people to work and play with. Whether you and your partner have been together forever or you're at the foundation stages of building something meaningful, your life is infused with romantic bliss now. Since Jupiter is retrograde throughout the whole fall season, you may rediscover a love from your past, or rekindle passion you thought was lost.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You're always trying to dodge the bullet that could potentially pierce your heart -- and tie you down! Even if you're in a long-standing relationship, you tend to enjoy it more when your significant other finds it necessary to give chase while you make your way through a grand adventure out in the world. With Uranus in your 5th House of Dating and Diversion this fall, you might not want to avoid commitment as much as usual, especially when you see the excitement romance has to offer. In fact, you could be the one begging your lover to spend forever with you by the time the Dec. 10 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse fills your 7th House of Relationship with a true, abiding love.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
As far as you're concerned these days, things have to go your way, or they'll go no way at all. That could make it difficult to find the strong, independent (and low-maintenance) kind of person you wish to have as a partner. Suffice it to say, even that sweet helpmate who seems to be totally dedicated to your care and feeding could get fed up with your demands if you don't remain conscious of how forceful you can be right now. Soften your approach and embrace the deeply healing effect of Mars in retrograde motion from Nov. 10 into the New Year, as you find gentler ways to execute your philosophy of relationships.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
With Mars traveling through your 7th House of Partnerships, there will be a lot of options for amour this fall. But it will be up to you to turn your experience into the kind you like to fantasize about when you let your mind wander in between brainstorming sessions. The people you choose as partners are usually strong and stubborn, but this season they could begin to seem impossible. If you're in a relationship, the increasing demands of the one you're with could put you off to the idea of being loving and giving. If you're on the market for a lover, expect to come across people who are far fiercer and feistier than you're used to. Rise to the challenge.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
"Sexy" will be the word that most closely matches the nature of your thinking and behavior for this fall. You might have started out thinking about having a "good" partnership, but whether you're already taken or not, a New Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy on Sept. 27 will get you far more worried about how naughty you can get with someone than who's going to keep you warm in the long run. And Venus in this same, sexy sector will only make you more intent on physical pleasure. This doesn't mean you'll stray from a current love, but it can indicate a need to feel good from your dreamy eyes to your tingling toes! Ask for what you need.
