Time to bust out our sexiest scarves, tights, and puffer jackets, cause it's cuffing season 2019, and many of us are out here lookin' for a cutie to cuff up. The astrological forecast of your sex life is currently being influenced by Sagittarius season — which thankfully is fun, flirty, and up for any adventure. So how will Sagittarius season 2019 affect your sex life? The stars have the answers — and let me just say that even though it's cold outside, your sex life still looks hot. Read on.

Always seeking adventure and new experiences, Sag energy can inspire even the most vanilla among us to embrace their inner wild child — and of course, this fun n' spicy energy is likely to extend into the bedroom. Sagittarius season 2019 began on Nov. 22 and parties on through Dec. 22, so we've got a full month to channel the happy-go-lucky energy of the zodiac's archer. Bustle spoke with astrologer Lisa Stardust, who gave us the scoop on the sexiest vibes we're currently working with. "Sagittarius season will make us all adventurous and take sexual risks," she explains. "It’s a time to embrace taboos and desires." No fantasy is off limits, star babies, so talk with your partner about what's on your mind (and theirs!) and see if you can't make it a sultry Sag season reality. Or, of course, indulge your own fantasies with some steamy solo sessions! Sag energy is ultra independent, so yeah, no partner necessary.

And of course, we couldn't write a sex post about Sagittarius season without stealing a peek at what sex drive planet Mars is up to. For the entirety of Sag season, Mars is in Scorpio (one of the signs that it co-rules, as a matter of fact) — and if there's one sign that makes people think of sex, it's this one! When Mars is in Scorpio, sex is way more than just a hopefully-pleasurable physical act. It's an emotionally deep, alarmingly intimate, and incredibly powerful connection and display of trust between partners. Mars in Scorpio can make us feel skeptical, suspicious, and paranoid during the courting process, but once you're in, you're in. Expect sex to feel more like a transcendental act under this transit — and combined with the always-adventurous Sagittarius energy of the season, we're dealing with sexual experiences that are both powerful and fun.

I know you're eager to get to the nitty gritty, so let's hop to it. Here's how Sagittarius season will affect each zodiac sign's sex life so you can plan your holiday schedule accordingly.

Your boo can't just get you revved up with a physical touch — this season, they better use their words, brains, and wit to get you off, too. "Dirty talk and sexts will get you heated up this month," shares Stardust. Lead the way by being vocal about your desires and using your words to spice things up in the bedroom — and suggest your partner try the same!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

With power and sex driven Mars in your sign all Sag season long, you're definitely feeling empowered and ready to express yourself through your sex life, Scorpio. "You’re using your sexuality as a way to take back your power," explains Stardust. "Go for it!" So long as you've got a trusting partner (or several) who are willing to let you take control, you're golden.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

As the ultimate free spirit of the zodiac, you're feeling extra free to indulge your desires during the Sun's journey through your sign, Sag, "You’re focused on self-pleasure, which means making [sure] your needs are served first," explains Stardust. Whether you explore this as a sexual priority solo or with a partner, put yourself in the top spot.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Your sexuality can be a true form of self-care and relaxation for you this season, Capricorn, so don't be afraid to let your mind and body's pleasure centers to guide you. "Long baths with bae will get your blood boiling this month," shares Stardust. Do what feels good and express your needs to your partners to make the most of this very-much-needed release.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Some like to do, others like to watch — and while no one can truly be put in a box (especially not an Aquarius like you!), right now, feel free to sit back and pay attention to what stimulates you mentally. "You’re embracing your voyeuristic desires at the moment," shares Stardust. Listen to yourself, take notes, and apply them to your sex life later.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Always a romantic, you're more than willing to express your passion for your lovers this season, Pisces — no matter where you are or who's around. "You’ll be sharing more then eggnog with your boo," says Stardust "Think major PDA or more." No shame in this game! Show off your passionate side and embrace your desires all season long.
