These Are the Best Date Days for Fall 2022, According to the Stars
By Amelia Quint
Summer might be coming to a close, but in the stars, things are heating up when it comes to dating. Whether you’re meeting your Bumble match for the first time or hitting your first major milestones together, we’ve picked four of the best date days this fall according to astrology. Use these to set your calendars for romantic success, and read on to find out what’s coming up in the cosmos for your love life!
Tuesday, September 20—Grand Earth Trine
You know those moments when date plans fall into place at the perfect time? This weekend is one of those, thanks to a Grand Earth Trine. It’s a rare alignment of three planets, each in signs of the same element, that opens up opportunities for growth and good luck. For this one, love goddess Venus in smart Virgo syncs up with Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn to make your date night a meeting of the minds.
With two intense outer planets in the mix, a deep conversation with your Bumble match could open you up to totally new ideas about what’s possible in romance. Venus will also be opposite dreamy Neptune, so try to stay in the moment instead of overanalyzing or imagining future dates. You’ll have so much more fun if you’re fully present.
Date idea: Visit a museum or gallery together. It’s a great way to learn about their taste in art, history, and travel—or start a deeper discussion about how they see the world.
Saturday, October 15—Moon, Venus, and Saturn in their home signs
In astrology, each planet has at least one sign that it’s associated with, and when that planet moves through that sign, its influence is stronger than usual. That’s why October 15 is such a great day for a date! The moon will be in Cancer, Venus will be in Libra, and Saturn will be in Aquarius—their home signs—amplifying whatever you decide to do that day.
The moon is all about feelings, Venus is love, and Saturn is support—and this weekend they’re ready to help you build a relationship that lasts. This is especially true since Venus is at a trine aspect with committed Saturn that same day. Any date activity that gives you the chance to really bond is a good bet, whether it’s cooking, going on a day trip together, or visiting somewhere that’s meaningful to you.
Date idea: Have a potluck for two! Cancer is the sign of food, and with the moon’s influence, whatever you whip up will be even more delicious than usual.
Saturday, October 22—Venus cazimi in Libra
Are you ready for a dating breakthrough? This weekend, an exact alignment of Venus and the sun in Libra gives you brilliant insights into romance and what you’re looking for in love. It’s called a cazimi, which means “heart of the sun”—and with Venus soaking in the bright solar beams, it illuminates what you really want when it comes to pairing up.
The Venus cazimi happens in Libra, the sign of partnership, which amplifies the good love vibes. It may be easier to open up to your Bumble match and feel radiant and warm around each other. If you’ve been on a few dates, you can use this energy to figure out how to balance each other in a way that feels good to you both.
Date idea: Soak up some rays together! It’s the perfect activity while Venus and the sun are in sync. You could take a nature walk, dine outdoors at one of your favorite spots, or have a picnic in the park.
Wednesday, November 23—Sagittarius new moon
Everyone has times in their dating journey where they feel like they’re off their game, but under the Sagittarius new moon, you may be lucky in love. New moons are new beginnings, and Sagittarius is one of the most generous signs of the zodiac. The moon there lands on social planets Mercury and Venus, which means you could get lots of flirtatious Bumble messages and invites to choose from. Get your best opening lines and favorite get-to-know-you questions ready!
This new moon is also getting a helping hand from a glamorous lineup of Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces and powerful Pluto in Capricorn, all of which can help you turn your wildest love dreams into reality. If you need a conversation starter, ask your Bumble match what’s currently on their vision board or where they imagine themselves in a few years, then share your own. It can help you get deeper than your usual discussion topics, and under these stars, it’s almost like making a wish.
Date idea: Look up at the night sky. Stargazing is always a romantic bet, and if you’re lucky, you might get a chance to wish on a shooting star together.
