A couple in love


The Sun aligns with the equator near the end of September each year, signaling the autumnal equinox: the start of autumn. As the leaves change color and the days grow shorter, the stars may be aligning in favor of your love life.

There is hot news in the zodiac this fall. Mars, the planet of masculine intensity, has just entered the zodiac sign of Leo. This is the astrological center of self-confidence and leadership. Mars in this position insists that you turn on the drama and take the lead if you seek to better your situation in life. When it comes to passion, the placement of this planet in this position makes for some steamy times no matter how cool the autumn winds blow. The shorter days will only make for longer nights and closer snuggling.

The red planet is in the sign of the Lion until November 10. Then it moves into Virgo and the practical matters of life begin to dominate. Virgo is the zodiac sign of getting organized. It is critical for your autumn love forecast to decide on one possible passion partner early in the fall season and reel in this lover close to you. If you have not sealed the deal of commitment by November 12, make your move then with the assistance of the Full Moon in Taurus. After this date, new couples will be setting up nesting arrangements.

Every season that favors partnering up brings many questions. What are the best days for your zodiac sign to amp up the flirting and move in to get a commitment? Is there a time to decide between two or more potential mates or can the paring down of a dating fantasy be put off until December? Would a partnership that begins this fall lead to a successful long-term relationship? These and more can be considered on a deeper level by reading your zodiac sign’s forecast below.

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    The Ram is titillated by fall flings. You have no shortage of dalliances awaiting your seductive afternoons and slow-dancing nights. The haze of lovers might dissipate in November and leave you more alone than you thought possible.

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    The Bull has a precise way of seeking and attaining affection. Mars in Leo disrupts the harmony you seek, but once the red planet gets to Virgo, the romance will shock you in its unceasing beauty and thoroughly satisfying nature.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    The Twin is a great communicator and Mars in Leo makes this fall a chance to get the word out with a new look that emphasizes the special things you have to offer. Talk fast and get a commitment, as Mars moving into Virgo produces a love rival.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    The Crab is in a unique position this fall. The decisions regarding relationships that you made earlier in 2011 firmly cement your status despite the occasional flirty encounter. This stable season allows you to concentrate on career and family.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    Mars is in your sign for the first half of autumn and it is pushing you toward encounters that pulsate with affection. You might want to be taken seriously for your intellect and wit by someone with whom you intend to spend the rest of your life..

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    Mars visiting your sign in mid-November will be an added bonus of passion for the person with whom you have become intimate. Beyond the physical attraction, though, you may have a need to find common interests for the winter ahead.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    A surge in social engagements only amplifies the number of possible love interests heading your way. Being pragmatic is about as difficult as becoming too picky, and so you may want your friends or family help you whittle away your choices.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    The Mars visit to Leo challenges your urge to be loyal with a chance to trade up in the world. Someone with money and connections might want you around a little more. But the price of this fame and fortune could be abandoned love.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    A lot of planetary activity in your sign this fall will bring many attractive dating prospects your way. But a bout of indecision and uncertainty might be causing you to ignore a great thing that has come your way.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    You might be the least likely sign of the zodiac to attract a love interest this fall. The reason is that something better is building for 2012. Patiently improving your standing and appearance set a foundation for soulmate success early next year.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    The intensity of Mars in Leo cannot be underestimated. It might inspire you to take a bigger risk in the partnership playoffs than you ordinarily would. Aim to take the big prize and be bold. The planet of conquest favors partnerships until mid-November.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    You can take a search for love slower than other signs of the zodiac, as Mars moving into Virgo on November 12 aligns with your horoscope’s partnership section. Someone may come to you late this autumn with a confession of obsession.
