From the 9th until November 13, Mars moves backward and in a way that has a profound effect on love and romance. If you're single, then you could find that passionate flames that exist between you and someone fizzle out unexpectedly. But you can blame a weakened Mars for this, not your potential paramour! If you're spoken for, then, similarly, you could find that sexy mojo diminishes on one or both sides. But that doesn't mean intimacy is off the menu. It means you may need to be a bit more sensitive, patient, and imaginative to instigate and enjoy it!
