The sun entered Scorpio just after midnight eastern time on Oct. 23, ushering in Scorpio season 2021, the end of daylight savings time, and and the hot ‘n’ heavy vibes of cuffing season. As one of the sentimental water signs, Scorpio’s passion-filled energy is associated with sex, secrets, and mysteries — so it’s safe to say that the coming month will be a juicy time for all zodiac signs’ love lives.

When the sun is in fixed water sign Scorpio (as it is from now through Nov. 21), there’s an emphasis on embracing on our dark sides, uncovering hidden truths, and sustaining emotional connections — so when it comes to love and relationships, depth, devotion, and honesty will shoot to the top of priority lists. We’re trading in the flirty and lighthearted vibes of Libra season for soul-level intimacy, raw sexuality, and transformation. However, Scorpio’s powerful vibes can also make us feel more jealous and possessive than usual, so check yourself if you find yourself stalking your crush’s social media likes or being suspicious of your lover for no good reason.

If you want to know how Scorpio season 2021 will affect your love life, it’s also important to peep the activities of the resident love and sex planets, Venus and Mars. We kick off the season with romance planet Venus in free-spirited Sagittarius, which draws us to exciting affairs and inspires us to take risks and try new things in love. But when Venus enters Capricorn on Nov. 5, we’ll likely be taking a more pragmatic approach to relationship, seeking more stability and longevity instead of adventure. Meanwhile, sex planet Mars (Scorpio’s traditional planetary ruler) spends the first week of the season in partnerships-oriented Libra, but joins the sun in sultry Scorpio on Oct. 30. This amplifies the raw intensity of the season and makes it a great time to bring more intimacy to your relationships and express your sexual desires.

Ready to dive into the steamy sauna of Scorpio season and get raw with those emotions? Here are your Scorpio season 2021 love horoscopes.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
