So, is love really in the air? Or is it just “cuffing season”? You know, that time during the fall and wintertime, when everyone suddenly decides to get hitched, just because? Temperatures go down, and we’re all in a corner lovesick binge-watching netflix. The whimsical fall vibes are real, and we have no choice but to bask in its magic. Now, if we look to the stars for love this season, you’ll notice that Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is currently swimming through the underworld. Venus is also a symbol of our seduction style, money, relationships, values, beauty, and all things related to pleasure, in general. Anyway, your fall love horoscope is looking good, stargazers.
Now that your ruling planet, Mars, is back on track, in September through early November you might begin to re-familiarize yourself with how it feels to be passionate and excited about life and love again. You might have been shut down, including sexually, over the last couple of months for a variety of reasons. Maybe you were spending time nursing wounds from a breakup and didn’t feel very adventurous about joining the dating game again. Or maybe you have been tired and lethargic about your current relationship, not wanting to put in much effort and basically allowing it to coast. In these crisp Autumn months, snuggling into fuzzy blankets, with a partner or even a close friend will let you feel more connected and open to new opportunities.
This fall is a huge relief for relationships and for your attitude towards intimacy, in general.

Being committed to one another, participating in cute autumn dates will only bring you and your partner closer. From apple picking at your local farm, to watching Halloween movies on repeat, your fall love horoscope shows comfort within your relationship.
Some Geminis during this past summer or early autumn might have weathered a tough breakup, while those in rock-solid relationships could have decided to make things official. Many of you will delude themselves of falling in love with someone to avoid getting their feeling hurt. However, keep your heart open as you never know what (or who) could be coming your way. A new love interest with more depth than you usually experience could surface, and you might be so charmed that you’re the one demanding clarity. Get to know new people and see what could happen! Chatting outside, grabbing a hot cup of coffee, or taking walks to look at the autumn leaves are all great ways to get to know someone on a deeper level.
Sensual, passionate, and super in tune with their bodies, Cancers are highly attuned to love and physical sensation—as long as they can trust enough to let down their barriers and allow another person into their world. Cancer much prefers discovering and checking out potential partners in low-stress settings, such as in a class, as neighbors, or at a local coffee shop. In bed, Cancer is happiest with long, passionate lovemaking. While props, toys, and shower sex can all be fun, Cancer’s absolute favorite is any position that allows plenty of eye contact with his or her lover. Crabs want to cuddle after sex (if they feel trusted and in love), and they’re always up for a lazy day spent entirely under the covers.

If you’re single, although you may have some long-term relationship goals, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. It will be best to pursue that once the Mercury retrograde is over in April. In September and October, you may find yourself in a new relationship challenge if you’re flying solo, and someone you weren’t expecting to make an effort may do so. With Mars now in retrograde, don’t let love get the best of you. This is a chaotic time, and Mercury retrograde is also flaring its head again. Keep your wits about you.

You may be feeling just a touch sulky in your fall love horoscope. If your dearest one asks you ever so gently (they wouldn’t dare do otherwise) what is the matter, you assume a wonderful pouting expression.

A corn maze would the perfect date to achieve these goals.
This autumn season, you could be wrongly accusing your partner. Perhaps they are not appreciating you as much as you require.

You need to see just how you too have played a part in any dissatisfaction. This season, your fall love horoscope suggests you and your bae take a break from the petty arguments and have fun dressing up for Halloween together. A couple costume is guaranteed to lighten the mood.
