Happy Thotumn! Your 2019 Cuffing Season Horoscopes

They say summer is the best season to fall in love, but I beg to differ. See, what most people don’t realize is, the weather is a major game-changer. It can truly make or break your sizzling love affair. One thing’s for sure: When the temperature drops, our panties follow mother nature’s lead. It’s inevitable. Cupid always makes a cryptic cameo once the fall and winter roll around, which is why this time of year is often referred to as “cuffing season.” People aren’t just looking to just get it in during cuffing season. On the contrary, they are looking to get cuffed… in every sense of the word. Do yourself a favor and test your luck during the next cold front. 

So what will cuffing season bring for you? Thotumn, a real relationship, all of the above? These are your cuffing season horoscopes:


Expect the unexpected, Aries. Despite your hot-headed approach when it comes to love, you’ll probably be feeling more secretive than usual—especially around October 23 through mid-November. Your sex life and intimate unions will be top of mind during this time, so surrender to your smoldering passions and enjoy the mystery.


Not at work, Taurus. Then again, you’ll probably be spending a lot more time at the office than usual. Things get pretty serious once Scorpio season (October 23 – November 11) rolls around, and you’ll be feeling extra amorous in December. Why? Well, because the sun will be shaking up our sultry eighth house and intimate unions. Ready to make things official, Taurus? Don’t be afraid to venture into unknown territory.


Fall in love, but make them work for it, Gemini. Are you looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with, or are you still afraid of commitment? There are opportunities for romance where you least expect it. You could get really lucky around mid-November if you play your cards right. You get what you give, so make sure you’re being completely authentic with your future prospects.


Don’t be shy, Cancer. You may feel the need to retreat in October, but not for long. Once Halloween rolls around, you’ll be more than ready to submit to your smoldering passions. There will be a number of planets activating your expressive fifth house of romance, and you’ll be feeling as confident as ever. In case you’re still wondering, October 23 marks the beginning of your peak season.


Don’t air out your dirty laundry just yet, Leo. Try to keep some things to yourself—especially while texting your crush. Seriously, you’re going to have to put those jealous claws away before you scare them off. Sit tight, though. The real fun will begin once Sagittarius season (November 22) rolls around. That is, if you put your ego away, of course. 


Bask in the pleasures of life, Virgo. Single and ready to mingle? You’ll be craving the finer things and indulging in your comfort for the majority of October. And while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a mental health day, it’s important that you put your picture-perfect checklist away before you let something good go to waste. After all, there’s no such thing as perfect, you know.


You’re in love with love, Libra. Your birthday season will be swirling with romance, and you’ll be feeling as irresistible as ever. Then again, when are you not adorably charming? Let your crush wine and dine you this season, especially once November rolls around. The sun will be shaking up your pleasure-seeking second house of money, and if you’re not splurging at the mall, you might as well let someone worship you.


Trick or treat, Scorpio. Cuffing season has your name written all over it, because who are we kidding? You know a thing or two about those autumn and winter nights. Lana Del Rey song or not…mid-October and November will be sizzling with passion, and your crush(es) won’t able to resist your sultry poker face. Quit playing games with their hearts, Scorpio. Karma is a messy bitch who lives for drama.


Don’t be afraid to take the unconventional route, Sagittarius. Your social life will be lit in October, so decide whether or not you want to keep people “friend-zoned,” or if you think they deserve that holiday hall pass. As cliche as this sounds, having a friend with benefits is very likely during this time. The good news is, you’ll most likely keep it a secret, given November’s rather cryptic astrology transits.


Try taking a walk on the wild side, Capricorn. Trust me when I tell you, being uptight is not a good look for you. Just so you know, it’s not that there aren’t any opportunities for love this season, it’s that you’re usually too pragmatic to realize what’s right in front of you. I’m totally serious, too. Besides, with the sun beaming through your shady 12th house of secrets towards the end of November, no one will have to know. What do I mean by that, exactly? Go and get your secret love affair on, Capricorn. You’ll thank me later.


Is there TSA Pre for the mile-high club, Aquarius? OK, I’m kidding. Aside from charming your superiors to death this cuffing season, you could also be traveling for business more than usual during this time. What’s it going to be? Business or pleasure? Venturing into unknown territory is inevitable towards the beginning of October, so try to make it a good time. However, don’t do anything too crazy, because once November rolls around, you’ll be back in the spotlight.


Despite your innate desire for intimacy and soul-to-soul connection, you’re also very guarded… even with your more serious partners. What are you afraid of, Pisces? I’m not saying you’re doomed this season, I am simply advising that you go with the flow. Although, one thing’s for sure: November will be an adventure. With the sun beaming through your expansive ninth house of travel, you might decide to take an impromptu vacation and perhaps meet someone along the way.
