Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries, you’re hot headed to begin with. You like things to be straight forward, and even a little bit of confusion can throw you off. Unfortunately for you, Aries, the month of September holds a lot of uncertainty regarding your love life. Venus and Mercury are headed towards Libra during the middle of the month, which could explain why you may be questioning whether the guy you’re hooking up with fits into your busy schedule. But these are all good things! Question, take risks and explore away, Aries! Don’t know whether to go home with the total hottie you just kissed at The Boot? Explore your options and test the relationship waters, you will not regret it. The end of the month brings the new moon, which might have an impact on all you Aries’ that are cuffed. Take your partner to the French Quarter for some good old-fashioned romance. The night could lead to something new and exciting!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, you’ve been feeling pretty satisfied and confident with where your love life stands. The first half of the month may be a time of, you know, realizing stuff. You’ll gain some clarity on things needing adjustment. Don’t be afraid to take matters into your own hands by being dominant in making changes to an existing relationship or taking risks by being the first one to send that ‘morning after’ text. The full moon taking place in the middle of the month lies in your house of friendship. This could very well mean friend-zoning someone you can’t see yourself with. On the other hand, be sure to keep lookout for opportunities to meet some of your BFF’s friends. A potential hookup could be one mutual friend away. The new moon towards the end of the month will inspire you to solidify a more stable routine in your love life and, well, your real life. Sure, your hookup buddy might want to hang out, but don’t choose that over attending your lecture or study time in Howie T.! Work hard, play hard, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini, you need to take some time to chill. You’ve been extremely uptight with the start of school. Let loose and let love find you. Gulf Shores, Alabama is only a three hour drive. Go show off your hot bod on the beach this weekend, you’ll be sure to have everyone drooling. Focus on being yourself; anyone would be lucky to have you. The sun moves through Libra on the 23rd, which could throw your routine off a bit. The chaos is manageable, so don’t let it mess with your head too much! Try getting off of social media for a weekend or two. Grab your partner and let go of those barriers that have been preventing y’all from really being real with one another. Get between the sheets and just let whatever happens, happen!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer, say what’s on your mind! Maybe you’re starting to feel something for a friend? Maybe you’re not a fan of that one move your partner does in bed? Unfortunately for the rest of us, no one can get an exact read on what’s going on in that crazy mind of yours. Don’t be afraid to tell someone how you’re truly feeling; something really good could come out of being honest with your partner and with yourself. There is a full moon on the 14th so try to take some steps towards clarity before it occurs. That way, when you’re feeling the intense heat of the full moon, you won’t be afraid to act on those emotions. On the 18th, Saturn begins moving direct again and this may have an effect on your relationships. I know, commitment is super scary, but start evaluating whether you might be ready for it. You may surprise yourself with your capabilities. If you’re single, try to map out what you may be looking for. Sure, we would all love for Zac Efron to waltz into our lives and whisk us away, but honesty and optimism can make someone just as sexy when you open your eyes to it!
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo, the full moon is headed right into the intuition and sex portion of your chart. There is nothing holding you back this month! My advice: head downtown into NOLA for some sexy inspo. There’s a burlesque show every night of the week! Be yourself, Leo. No one will judge you for trying something new and exciting. In fact, your partner is probably enjoying your new moves just as much as you are! Later this month, Venus and Mercury start poking at your communication sector. Grab your favorite bottle of rosé and get talking! As soon as you start to open up, you’ll realize that there is more than one thing in your life that needs to be figured out. When Saturn begins moving direct on the 18th, an unexpected ‘friend’ might pop into your life. So, keep a close eye on who’s standing in front of you in the omelet line at the Commons — you never know where they might show up!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgo, you like having a significant other. That guy who you can rely on to Netflix and chill with on Sundays, that girl you can count on to have a good time with at this week’s darty. But going your own way and really exploring you is by no means a bad thing. This month, you might find yourself being more confident in telling your partner what you really want. Go you, Virgo! There is nothing more sexy than someone who says what they want with no hesitation! The full moon on the 14th could get your mind running to a million different places. You could be asking yourself what you want, what’s working and what isn’t, or how to heat things up in the bedroom. Go with your gut and trust your intuition, Virgo, you’ve got this. On the 18th, Saturn moves directly into the romance sector of your chart. You know what that means… cuddle session while watching the sunset at the Fly, then heading back home for some private, alone time with your partner!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libra, you and your partner had a blast going out together every night of sylly week! Y’all made it a goal to hit every Boot happy and you’re always out and about. Try to get some private time; some TLC and quality time behind closed doors is exactly what your relationship needs. Considering Venus is in the retreating sector of your chart, it is the perfect time for y’all to take a chill pill, relax, and spend some time one-on-one. This can mean anything from an old-school face-to-face convo over an LBC salad in between classes, or getting a bit more sensual between the sheets. The full moon, which lands on the 14th, leaves you wanting a little bit more. Put on your beat up Nike Air Force Ones and hit Broadway for a night out with your friends instead! The sun is heading right for you on the 23rd, Libra, so lookout for a confidence boost with respect to wherever your love life lies.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio, it’s time to have some fun! Responsibilities such as throwing in a load of laundry or heading to Whole Foods for this month’s groceries are not as urgent as they may seem. I promise you, Scorpio, you’ll have plenty of time to finish your tasks. The full moon on the 14th lies within your house of romance. I encourage you to embrace the urge you have to go out and have some fun! Conveniently for you, Scorpio, this full moon happens to land on the same day as Tulane’s next football game. Put on those tailgate clothes and get going, you’ll find yourself in contact with someone you’ve been waiting for. Saturn starts to move direct on the 18th, aligning with the communication sector of your chart. Have no regrets at this time. You need to be clear with your partner about what exactly it is that you’re needing right now.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sag, you are getting noticed this month! Whether you’re constantly being super liked on Tinder, people keep sliding into your DMs or a new cutie sits next to you in class, you’ve got your options set out for you. Mercury and Venus enter Libra in mid month, which will make you want to solidify a more established definition of where you and your S.O. are at. The 18th will intensify your confidence. Show this off to whoever the lucky one is. If you’re single, your confidence will definitely radiate onto everyone you come into contact with. The way you get down at frat parties is attracting way more people than you realize. Be ready for a lusty encounter with someone who is absolutely crazy about you!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, you are in for a surprise this month, and it’ll be sooner than you think. Venus is in your house of travel so you very well may be in store for a weekend getaway with your significant other! Don’t be afraid to give yourself a vacation right in your dorm room, a staycation would definitely do you some good. Grab those Sephora face masks you’ve been waiting to use, light some candles, and destress. The full moon lies in your house of communication this month. I know it may be hard for you to open up, but talking about more difficult subjects with your partner will take a lot of weight off of your shoulders. Be yourself and you’ll see how many people are drawn to you. (SPOILER: it’s a lot) As an earth sign, you like to be grounded and plan everything out before it happens… even sex. Start letting things happen in the heat of the moment, you’ll find how much more exciting and fulfilling this can be!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius, you empathize like no other sign can. If your partner isn’t happy with where things are between the two of you, you’ll be able to feel it. If things get too much to handle, take a step back. Self-care over everything else, Aquarius! In the middle of the month, you may begin to feel many sexual urges as Mercury and Venus move into Libra. Don’t shy away from them, but don’t get too out of control either. Keep things simple and keep your focus on having fun and being 100% yourself. When Saturn begins moving direct on the 18th, you may encounter a small dose of chaos going on around you. Be mindful of what others have to say and realize that you do not have to be in control all of the time. Letting someone else take the steering wheel can be a wild and exciting ride. Sit back, relax, and let others do the majority of the work this time!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces, this month starts off with four planets sitting in your house of partnership. This may result in you having strong impulses to do some real talk with whomever you’re getting it on with right now. Don’t shy away from saying everything that is on your mind, it will lead you to a healthy partnership with whoever this lucky one is. The 14th’s full moon is nowhere else but in your sign! This is huge for you, Pisces. You are a hot commodity and will be getting stares left and right. This falls perfectly in line with Tulane’s next football game, so I encourage you to let loose at the tailgate! However, this month is not all fun and games. You’ll realize some things you’ve done wrong in the past this month. Maybe you left a potential significant other on read for a few days, which really made them worried; explain that you were super busy that week. Don’t worry too much, as the full moon will also help you see where things have gone well, making it easier to take some steps forward in your current relationship.
