Hello, romantic renaissance! On Monday Cupid wings his way into your world as the radiant Sun blazes into Virgo, firing up your fifth house of amour until September 22. If you laddered your way out of the dating pool, take a quick shower and dive back in! Single Bulls may have better experiences doing the online thing, if you're more liberal with your right swipes and then more selective about whom you give your digits to. Don't play coy if you know you're playing for keeps. Making your initial conversations more substantive will let people know out of the gate that you're not just a good-time girl (or guy). That should encourage the players to retreat back into the shadows. Attached? Don't assume your bae will take the lead with date planning or initiating action. Be proactive—and creative—and watch the sparks that generates! Even something as simple as changing up your date spots (or nookie zones) can bring sexy back. With this solar placement, your creativity gets turbo-charged. This is a ripe time for your imagination, and, if you have bambinos on the brain, a perfect cycle to, er, interrupt YOUR cycle, as the fifth house rules all kinds of fertility. If there are kids in your life, carve out more playtime together.
Wednesday's stars turn up the dimmer switch on your love life, as lustful Mars and future-oriented Saturn meet up in Sagittarius and your erotic, intense eighth house. Passing flirtations will be tinged with a palpable sense of gravitas—and casual sex won't be "just sex." Below the surface, deep emotions are brewing, and these will either pull you closer or make you want to bolt. We hate to be a buzzkill, but this is your heart we're talking about. So before you unzip, evaluate this person's odds of being around to hang holiday decorations with you. The chemistry may be too hot to resist, but is a night of passion really worth a week or month of agonizing over "the one that got away"—but in truth, never was? This Mars-Saturn fusion can bring in the right partner, but only if you're very discerning. This also applies to business deals. With clear judgment, you might enter into a relationship that brings happiness—and prosperity—for years to come.
Group dynamics could grow tense on Friday, as competitive Mars forms a testy square with befuddling Neptune. You might struggle to get an accurate read on someone in your crew, or perhaps a co-worker has a secret agenda—and neither may have your back. But before you accuse anyone of foul play, get the facts. Under Neptune's foggy spell, you might need to go deep under cover to dredge up concrete evidence. Bear in mind that much of this could be your imagination. After all, Mars can get you carried away, and Neptune is the planet of illusion. If your detective work doesn't yield anything, choose to ignore your suspicions and get back to work!
The weekend is for romancing, so drop the petty quibbling. You've got far more important (and titillating) things on your agenda. Love planet Venus teams up with boundless Jupiter in your amorous fifth house, causing sparks to fly with someone new or, if you're in a LTR, rekindle the embers. The laundry can wait. You've got big-time seducing to do, and in that department, nobody does it better than you, Taurus!
