If you’ve been consumed with your love life more than usual lately, you may be experiencing the magic of cuffing season. As the temperatures cool and the sun continues to travel through the Venus-ruled air sign, Libra, your desire to cuddle up with someone will only intensify. Though cuffing SZN romances aren’t known for standing the test of time, there’s still plenty of intimacy to go around as fall continues, especially since Venus retrograde shenanigans are finally in the rearview. October 20, 2023, in particular, will be romantic AF for every zodiac sign, sparking new love interests, heightened socialization, and plenty of flirty DMs.

On Oct. 20, the sun and Mercury will conjoin in the cardinal air sign of Libra, forming a cazimi. Cazimis are what happens when a planet forms an exact conjunction to the sun, something that Mercury does about three times each year. When a cazimi takes place, the planet consumed by the sun’s rays is said to experience a period of renewal. Since Mercury is the communication planet of the cosmos, every zodiac sign can expect to gain clarity around how to better establish balance in their relationships. With Libra being the sign that rules over justice and equality, this cazimi will support mutual agreements and understandings among the collective. It’ll be easier to understand each other and make fair decisions that consider both sides. It’s also a fortunate time for mingling and sparking conversation with future love interests.
