Your sexoscope for the week of October 18 to October 24:
What’s happening: Tonight, the Moon is in Gemini, but on Saturday, it enters Cancer, and Mercury and Pluto connect. On Monday, the Moon enters Leo.
What it means: Tonight is the night to run into your next crush! You’re chattier than usual, and asking for someone’s number or inviting them home is a total breeze—but there are strings attached, and catching feels is a given. You’re feeling p good about it though, because the Leo Moon this weeks means that you’re feeling vibrant, outgoing, and frisky, and you def want to meet up with them again!
What’s happening: On Saturday, the Moon is in Cancer, and Mercury teams up with Pluto. On Monday, Venus connects with dreamy Neptune!
What it means: Prepare to be in your feels, Taurus. You’re on the lookout for someone sexy, but you’re not in the mood for a fling. This is the perfect time for romance and teasing your boo—but if your affections aren’t returned, it makes you feel extra defeated, so you’re spending all week in your sweats eating Ben and Jerry’s to recuperate from the heartbreak. Hope for the best, but expect the worst—that way if things are just “eh, okay,” you won’t be too let down.
What’s happening: Tonight, the Moon is in your sign! On Sunday, Venus links up with Saturn.
What it means: Get your flirt on! People want to connect, and you’re an expert conversation-starter, so the world is your oyster tonight! Flirting and hooking up is fun and all, but this week you have the chance to re-work your normal dating routine. That means talking to someone you might want to actually get together with in the future, smoothing out any weirdness or probs in your relationship, and basically getting your love life back on track—not playing games.
What’s happening: The Moon enters your sign on Saturday. For the rest of the weekend, connections between Mercury/Pluto and Venus/Saturn lend your love life a helping hand.
What it means: A new connection who wants something real just as much as you do comes your way, and whether you end up going home with them or just getting their number, you’re feeling pretty good about how things are going! BUT. Mercury Retrograde is right around the corner, so who knows what could happen! As long as you’re flexible, don’t put too many expectations on someone new, and don’t to jump to conclusions (like writing a 50-tweet-long thread about them taking an hour for them to text you back) you’re golden, little crab.
What’s happening: Tonight, the Moon is in Gemini, but chills out in Cancer for the rest of the weekend until it enters your sign on Monday.
What it means: Sorry, luv, but this weekend’s not the greatest for your love life. Tonight’s great for hanging out with the squad, but if you’re on the prowl for some action, you’re more likely to feel disappointed and come home alone. Stay in and cat nap ’til Monday, once the Moon is in your sign. You love to dramatize everything (no offense), but one weekend alone does not warrant assuming you’re forever alone.
What’s happening: On Saturday, Mercury connects with Pluto. On Sunday, Venus teams up with Saturn, and on Monday, Venus harmonizes with Neptune.
What it means: A new life-altering (okay, maybe not life-altering, but still intense) connection can stir up some major feels for you this weekend. You’re totally convinced that they’re soulmate material and you’re all over them, but you know how you always love to place ultra-high expectations on people? Try to…not do that. You’ll only end up disappointing yourself, so take it slow, enjoy the moment, and don’t rush things!
What’s happening: Tonight, the Moon is in Gemini! It’s in Cancer for the rest of the weekend, but on Monday, it slides into Leo.
What it means: Tonight’s the best for meeting new people, and someone not your regular type might be the one you take home—but after that, you’re probs focusing more on work than romance. Come Monday, your schedule frees up some, but you’re more inclined to hang out with your squad instead of texting your hookup. Basically, your chances of getting lucky are limited, so you’re taking care of your own needs if you don’t get it in after tonight.
What’s happening: The Moon enters Cancer on Saturday. On Monday, Venus and Neptune connect.
What it means: When the Moon is in a like-minded water sign like it is this weekend, your vibes are pretty easygoing, so you’re having a pretty good time going out. What’s even better is that at the start of the week, something or someone ups the romance-factor in your life—a new crush, trying a different position or some toys in bed, anything can happen and your love life is better for it! Oh, and even better news—Scorpio season starts on Wednesday!
What’s happening: The Moon is in Gemini tonight, and dips into Cancer on Saturday. Venus is still hanging out in Scorpio, though.
What it means: This weekend, you’re looking for romance and intimacy. Unfortunately, new people in your love life are a rarity right now, because Venus in Scorpio is working hard to undo patterns in your love life, not start new relationships. Your ex might send you a “WYD” text, but even though you really want to be with someone, it’s best to block ‘em and say “thank u, next.”
What’s happening: On Saturday, the Moon enters Cancer. On Sunday, Venus and Saturn link up, and on Monday, Venus and Neptune join forces.
What it means: Your weekend starts off slow, but come Saturday, you can find someone cute to mack on! You’re not looking for a hookup, though—you want something with potential, not just a fling. You might meet someone perfect for you, but if they seem too good to be true, they probably are, bb. Be upfront with what you want out of your love life, otherwise you might get heartache after you plan your entire future with this new person and they end up ghosting you.
What’s happening: Tonight, the Moon is in Gemini, but slides into Cancer on Saturday. Luckily, it enters Leo on Monday!
What it means: In the mood? Tonight’s your night! The Gemini Moon is flirtatious, playful, and mega-social, so connecting with your next hookup is easy-peasy. It’s too bad that work calls you in for the rest of the weekend, though. No worries, if you just can’t get enough of your Friday night fling and want to see them again, the Leo Moon for the first half of the week is helping you find the courage to ask ‘em out!
What’s happening: The Moon enters Cancer on Saturday, and Venus connects with Saturn on Sunday.
What it means: Love is in the air, and you’re feeling über romantic and suuuper frisky this weekend. If you’re not having any luck finding someone to get it on with, why not ask someone from your squad? If you’re both down for a friends-with-bennies deal, this weekend’s astro-weather can help make that happen. If you’re already boo’d up, adding a third person to the mix could be especially exciting this weekend, too!
