Mercury Retrograde Won’t Affect Cuffing Season For These Zodiac Signs

Love is in the air… JK, that’s just the sickly sweet aroma of cuffing season being right around the corner. As the weather gets gloomier and the chill of the impending long n’ lonely winter season settles in, even the most diehard of singles can get a case of the cuffing season hype — in other words, they will suddenly find themselves willing to trade in their wild n’ free nights on the town for a monogamous cuddle mate who’ll stay inside with them, warm under the covers. Until springtime hits, anyway.

But alas, we’ve got bigger seasonal hoops to jump through this fall, as Mercury retrograde fall 2019 just so happens to begin on Halloween, Oct. 31, marking the planet’s final retrograde period of the year — and kicking off juuuuust as the season of cuffing begins, too.

While Venus and Mars are the major love and sex planets, Mercury has an influence over relationships too, as it’s the ruler of communication and timing. This means that during one of the planet’s regular and often-dreaded retrograde periods, we’ll be way more likely to mess up on plans, show up late, fail to properly communicate our feelings, or find our tech devices failing on us (think texts not going through or being sent to the wrong person) — all of which can lead to arguments, confusion, and misunderstandings in the love department.

But this transit will be hitting everyone’s astrological chart a little bit differently, so just because we’re facing a pesky Mercury retrograde period doesn’t mean that an active autumn love life is off the table for every sign. While, yes, there are a few signs who may want to avoid pouring themselves into any new romantic endeavor whatsoever, this upcoming Mercury retrograde won’t affect cuffing season for some zodiac signs, so they’ll be able to carry on with their love lives as usual. That’s not to say that the retrograde won’t affect their romantic prospects at all — no one can escape this retrograde’s effects, especially given that it’s in the emotional sign of Scorpio and will be bringing all sorts of private matters to the surface! But cuffing season will carry on strong for these three zodiac signs, and they will just have to roll with the retrograde punches as they navigate it. Astrologer Lisa Stardust spoke with Bustle to give us her professional astrological opinion on the matter, so read on to find out where you stand.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re perfectly content to map out a gorgeously relaxing next few months for yourself — all you need is your perfectly curated Netflix queue, some good books, and your nicest sheets and candles to spruce up your space. But do you go at it alone? "You’re conflicted whether to commit 100% or play it solo right now," explains Stardust. But this Mercury retrograde period is actually likely to wash an ex-lover up on your shores, so if you’re single, you may find yourself saying yes. "You’re more apt to reconnect and keep warm with an ex this cuffing season."

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Mercury retrograde periods have a tendency to bring up issues from our past, especially those that have been unresolved — and in the case of your love life, you may find this to be true, Cancer. "A former crush will resurface," shares Stardust, "but you may experience a tug-of-war with your romantic interest." While there may be some perks and even some growth experiences to be gained through a reunion with this shadow of your past, you’ll probably find that you both have trouble committing. Don’t expect it to last, but at least enjoy the cuffing season.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Mercury is retrograde through your sign this season, Scorpio, meaning that you may be feeling its effects more than anyone. While it certainly isn’t putting your love life on hold, it is making it extra difficult to figure out what you want, as your emotions feel intensely raw and vulnerable. "You’re confused by who you want to partner with, as you may have a few options," explains Stardust. No one can make a decision here but you — just remember to proceed with honesty and know that retrograde’s can cloud our judgment, so don’t commit too hard just yet.

Donald Trump justifies leaving Kurds in Turkey's path

‘We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives!’ Donald Trump justifies leaving U.S. allies in Turkey’s path – then boasts of ISIS: ‘I’m the one who did the capturing’

  • Donald Trump defended his removal of American troops from Syria 
  • ‘We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives,’ he said
  • Lawmakers from both sides have criticized Trump’s decision
  • And others have expressed concern ISIS will resurge in the region
  • But Trump said he’s captured ISIS 
  • ‘I’m the one who did the capturing,’ he said 

Donald Trump defended his removal of American troops from Syria, arguing he was keeping a campaign promise and that the United States ‘never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives.’

‘We never agreed to protect the Kurds. We supported them for three-and-a-half, four years. We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives,’ the president said Monday during a Cabinet meeting at the White House.

Trump also bragged the Kurds were good fighters because of U.S. money and military equipment.

Donald Trump defended his removal of American troops from Syria

Lawmakers from both parties have criticized Trump’s decision complaining he was abandoning the Kurds, a longtime U.S. ally – above U.S. trucks arrive in Iraq after withdrawing from Syria

‘They didn’t fight because they didn’t have us to fight with them. A lot of people are good when they fight with us, you know, when you have $10 billion worth of airplanes shooting 10 miles in front of your line, it’s much easier to fight,’ he said.

But, he added: ‘Where’s the agreement that said we have to say in the Middle East for the rest of humanity, for the rest of civilization to protect the Kurds. We never said that.’ 

The president has been fighting criticism from lawmakers in both parties of his decision to remove U.S. troops from Syria. Republicans and Democrats alike have complained Trump abandoned a longtime U.S. ally. 

‘We helped the Kurds. And we never gave the Kurds a commitment that we’d stay for the next 400 years and protect them,’ the president said. 

‘So why should we put our soldiers in the midst of two large groups, hundreds of thousands, potentially, of people, and they’re fighting? I don’t think so,’ Trump said. 

Additionally, Turkey made a military move across the border shortly after the president’s decision. Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew to Ankara last week to negotiate a cease fire. 

Trump said that agreement is ‘holding.’ 

The Kurds, a Muslim tribe in the Middle East, had been a strong U.S. ally in the war on terror, fighting ISIS.

The president acknowledged their contribution. 

‘They were a good help, but we were a great help to them, too. They were fighting ISIS. You know, they hated ISIS. So they were fighting ISIS,’ he said.  

But he then said he was the one that defeated ISIS. 

‘ISIS was all over the place … It was me…who captured them,’ he said.  

‘I’m the one who did the capturing. I’m the one who knows more about it than you people or the fake pundits,’ he told reporters at the White House.

His comments come amid reports of concern about experts that ISIS will benefit from the president’s decision and regroup in the wake of the U.S. withdrawal. 

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis claimed ISIS would surge in the region because of Trump’s move.

‘In this case, if we don’t keep the pressure on then ISIS will resurge. It’s, it’s absolutely a given that they will come back,’ he said last Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’

The president also said he campaigned on bringing American troops home and wanted to keep that promise.  

‘I want to bring our soldiers back home,’ he said. ‘I have to do what I got elected on, and I have to do what I think is right.’   

 But the troops from Syria are being redeployed to Iraq and not returning to the United States.

US mulls leaving some troops in northeast Syria to guard oil

Pentagon chief says US could retain military presence in northeastern Syria amid heightened fears of ISIL revival.

    The United States is weighing whether to retain a military presence near oilfields in northeastern Syria in order to prevent the sites falling under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS) armed group, Defense Secretary Mark Esper has said.

    Esper’s comments on Monday came as US troops crossed into Iraq as part of a withdrawal from northeastern Syria ordered by President Donald Trump, a decision that cleared the way for Turkey to launch a cross-border offensive on October 9 against Kurdish fighters in the region.

    More:

    • SDF fighters evacuate from besieged Syrian town

    • US ground troops will not enforce Syria ‘safe zone’: Esper

    • Turkish FM: Operation to resume if Kurdish forces do not withdraw

    The Reuters News Agency reported that more than 100 vehicles had crossed the border into Iraq early on Monday from the northeast tip of Syria, where Turkey agreed to pause its offensive for five days under a ceasefire deal with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) brokered by Washington.

    Speaking to reporters during a trip to Afghanistan, Esper said that, while the US withdrawal was under way, some troops were still with partner SDF fighters – Washington’s main ground allies in the fight against ISIL- near oilfields and there had been discussions about keeping some of them there.

    Esper said that was just one option and no decision had been made “with regard to numbers or anything like that”. The Pentagon’s job was to look at different options, he added.

    “We presently have troops in a couple of cities that [are] located right near that area,” Esper said. “The purpose is to deny access, specifically revenue to ISIS and any other groups that may want to seek that revenue to enable their own malign activities.”

    Trump later told a cabinet meeting in Washington, DC, that a “small number” of troops which remained were located in the southeast of the country, while a separate group staying behind had “secured the oil”.

    Lucrative oilfields

    Trump’s shift has opened a new chapter in Syria’s more than eight-year war, raising fears of an ISIL revival and prompting a rush by Turkey as well as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government and its ally Russia to fill the vacuum left by the US.

    Syrian and Russian forces, invited by Kurdish authorities, last week entered the two border cities of Manbij and Kobani vacated by US troops.

    Erdogan has backed rebels fighting to remove Assad, but has said Turkey had no problem with Syrian government forces deploying near the border if the YPG militia were removed.

    Ankara considers the YPG a “terrorist” group linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), based in Turkey.

    Marwan Kabalan, director of policy analysis at Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, said it was expected that Washington’s withdrawal would lead to “parties competing for the northeast” of Syria also “fighting for control” of the region’s oil and gas fields.

    The oilfields are not currently operational but they can be restored easily … and whoever controls the oil and gas fields will be generating a lot of money,” Kabalan told Al Jazeera.

    The Syrian regime will need that in order to finance the reconstruction of the country, or part of that at least, whereas the Kurds will want to keep control of the oil and gas fields because its really important for them if they want to establish any form of autonomous rule in the northeast of Syria,” he added.

    “Of course, Turkey would not allow that and would also get into this fray and try also to control the oil and gasfields.”

    ‘Safe zone’ controversy

    Under the ceasefire deal, Ankara agreed to give the Kurdish forces 120 hours to withdraw from a so-called “safe zone” that Erdogan wants to establish along Syria’s border with Turkey. The agreement did not specify the area of the pullback.

    Erdogan on Sunday said he expected the US to keep its promises and not use stalling tactics over the agreement brokered between the NATO allies, warning Turkey would resume its military operation if the deal faltered.

    He had previously said the offensive will resume if the withdrawal is not completed within the five-day time window set out by the truce agreement.

    On Sunday, the SDF said they had withdrawn from the border town of Ras al-Ain under the ceasefire deal, but a spokesman for Turkish-backed Syrian rebels said the withdrawal was not yet complete.

    Erdogan has also said Turkey will set up a dozen observation posts in the “safe zone”, prompting criticism from Iran.

    “We are against Ankara’s establishing of military posts in Syria,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi told a weekly news conference on Monday broadcast live on state television.

    “The issues should be resolved by diplomatic means … Syria’s integrity should be respected,” said Mousavi, whose country is a staunch ally of al-Assad.

    Echoing such concerns, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov said Russia believed long-term regional security could only be achieved by restoring Syrian unity and also by taking into account the interests of all the country’s ethnic and religious groups, Reuters reported.

    He reiterated that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Erdogan would discuss Turkey’s military offensive during scheduled talks on Tuesday in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.

    Turkey’s operation has displaced hundreds of thousands of people, with the fighting also sparking fears that the SDF, holding large swaths of northern Syria previously controlled by ISIL, would be unable to keep thousands of suspected members of the armed group in jail and tens of thousands of their family members in camps.

    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Forgot Their Wedding Anniversary: 'Neither of Us Remember Which Day'

    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard know they’re married, they just can’t tell you when it happened.

    On Monday, the Good Place star, 39, revealed on Instagram that she and Shepard, 44, forgot a special date in their marriage last week.

    “We were reminded by family and friends that at some point last week, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary,” Bell began her caption of a sweet shot of the couple.

    However, the actress was quickly corrected in her own comments section: The actors actually wed six years ago, not five!

    “I think it was 6! Case in point, all love,” one follower wrote, to which Bell responded, “hahahah oops, your right it was 6yrs!!!!! 👏👏👏.”

    In her lengthy Instagram caption, the actress admitted that neither she nor Shepard remembered the exact date that they tied the knot — which was Oct. 17, 2013. (The couple shares daughters Delta, 4½, and Lincoln, 6½.)

    “That’s because we have been living the celebration of our commitment every moment since,” the mother of two continued. “I find when you are living with gratitude each moment, the dates become irrelevant. To get to wake up next to someone who has put hard work, respectful fights, patience, understanding and gratitude into your relationship is the definition of love.”

    “I will never remember the date of our anniversary @daxshepard, and i know you won’t either,” Bell added. “And thats just one more thing i love about us.”

    In a second Instagram, Bell posted a photo of the couple kissing after learning it was in fact their anniversary — as witnessed by their dog Frank.

    “Here’s the morning we both got texts from grandma saying ‘happy anniversary!'” Bell wrote. “We were both on our way out the door but stopped for a quick hot and heavy make out sesh while Frank stood close like a creeper.”

    The couple, who began dating in 2007, told PEOPLE in March that they’re the first to admit their 12 years together have been filled with ups and downs.

    “We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we’re both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we’re pretty much opposites,” Shepard said.

    After their intimate courthouse nuptials in 2013, the couple — who often buck tradition — did feel a greater sense of security.

    “It just felt more normal. We do a lot of things differently, but there’s a couple things where I’m just like, ‘God, can we not just fall inside the lines once in a while? I want to wear a pretty piece of jewelry. It’s fun!’” Bell said. “It felt nice afterwards.”

    Now 12 years into their relationship, Shepard and Bell said they are taking stock on the incredible life and family they’ve built together.

    “All these movies from the ’80s taught us that it’s love at first sight, and it is supposed to be easy and [that] all you have to do is find that person,” Bell said. “It took me a while to realize, ‘Oh, that was such a lie,’ because things that you work really, really, really hard for always yield the best results.”

    Kerry Katona says she’s had a vagina scan and medicine stuck up her bum as she remains in hospital with mystery illness – The Sun

    KERRY Katona has revealed she has undergone a battery of tests, including a scan of her vagina, and had suppositories up her bum after being hospitalised by a mystery illness.

    The reality star, 39, was rushed to hospital last week after suffering from unexplained pains and was hooked up to a drip.


    Now the mum of five has revealed all the investigations she has had in her new! magazine column.

    "Woe is me, I’m writing this from my hospital bed!" she wrote.  "I’ve been here for three days and the doctors still don’t know
    what’s wrong with me.

    "Initially I thought it was a bad case of kidney stones because the pain was so hideous, but that’s been ruled out."

    She continued: I’ve had a CT scan, an internal vaginal scan, an MRI and suppositories stuck up my bum – all sorts!"


    But the optimistic lass managed to look on the bright side.

    She revealed of her hospital stay: "I’m loving it a little bit – it’s a nice break from dealing with the kids and the housework!"

    And she also insisted her fans don't need to worry about her.

    "Just to reassure everyone, I’ll be alright," the former Atomic Kitten singer said. "I’m not dying, I’m just in a lot of pain."


    Kerry has posted regular updates from her hospital bed on her instagram account.

    Four days ago, she uploaded a video of herself in her NHS gown with a tag round her wrist and told her fans that there was "still no news".

    She has been cheered up, however, by visits from her loved ones.

    She posted a selfie with her youngest daughter Dylan Jorge, 5, as she popped to her bedside.

    "Awww look who’s come to see me!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 1 out of my 5!!! Will let @123_mollymc off as she does live in another country 😂🤦‍♀️," she posted alongside a picture of her cradling the youngster.

    Boyfriend Ryan Mahoney, who she snapped learning back on a chair on her ward, has also been by her side.

    She wrote: "Bless him! Keeping me company xxxx."

    Zendaya’s Zodiac Sign Says She’s All About Love & Loyalty As A Partner

    Is Zendaya single? Or are the rumors she’s dating her Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi true? For now we’ll just have to wonder, as the notoriously tight-lipped actor is keeping quiet about their reported connection. They have, however, been been spotted together twice, first on vacation in Greece back in August and then again while at the movies on October 1. Both of these moments have fueled speculation that this may be a love connection. But why the top secrecy? Well, when you consider Zendaya’s zodiac sign, it starts to make a bit more sense. Elite Daily had previously reached out to reps for both Zendaya and Jacob and did not hear back in time for publication.

    Here’s what know: Zendaya was born September 1 under the sign of Virgo. This is a sign that is comfortable playing things close to the vest and who can be very image conscious. They have a tendency to worry and overanalyze everything, so it makes sense why she may opt to keep her private life as hidden as possible. That way, she avoids the outside pressures from complicating the already challenging experience of dating and falling in love. Which, if that’s what she prefers, then good for her for maintaining strict boundaries. That being said, while Zendaya may choose to be very private about her love life, that doesn’t mean we can’t surmise what she’s like when she is in love based on her zodiac sign.

    Virgos Have Very High Standards In Who They Date.

    Virgos have a reputation for being picky about, well, everything, but especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Frankly, it’s well-earned. This is a sign that holds themselves to a very high standard and has similar expectations for the people they date. They want a partner who has the same ambitions in life and is not above giving a little constructive criticism to help them achieve it. While that can be a hard pill to swallow for folks whose feelings are easily hurt, the reality is that Virgo wouldn’t be attracted to you from the start if they weren’t already totally impressed by you.

    They Can Be Slow To Open Up.

    While some signs like Pisces and Aries have no trouble opening their hearts and jumping into a new romance, Virgos aren’t as easily cracked. This is a sign that has to open up in their own time and may take a bit of wooing. That’s because this sign likes to take their time and really observe someone before they feel like they are ready to show their softer side. But here’s the thing: This sign is totally worth waiting for because they are much warmer and more loving than you might first assume.

    They Will Do Anything For The People They Care About.

    Virgos often show their affection through their actions rather than their words. They are natural caretakers that express love through thoughtful gestures and acts of service. Once they care about someone, there is practically nothing they won’t do for them. Ruled by mercury, this sign has great intuition and they take a true interest in other people. They can often anticipate others’ needs and meet them before they even know they have that need. Which all means, when a Virgo loves you, you truly feel seen.

    They Love With Their Whole Heart.

    When a Virgo falls for someone, they fall hard. They are a true ride or die who values loyalty and honesty in relationships. That is why you rarely ever have to worry about infidelity or keeping secrets with this sign. When they are in love, they are all the way in.

    Listen, Virgos can be a bit intense sometimes. I say this as a fellow Virgo. But for the right partner who can handle their radical honesty and constructive criticism, you truly cannot find a lover with a bigger and more steadfast heart. I guess what I am saying is that whoever earns Zendaya’s (secret) affections, they are very lucky indeed.

    How to make your eyelash extensions last longer

    So you’ve finally treated yourself to a pair of professionally-applied eyelash extensions à la Kylie Jenner, and, let’s be honest, you look great. But like any first-time eyelash extensions devotee, the first thing you’re likely to think about once they’ve been applied is how to make your eyelash extensions last longer. Lucky for you, lash technician Hanna Putjato, founder of London Lash Professional, recently answered this question (and many more) for Prima magazine. Hanna puts it all down to how you care for them. Not only will caring for your eyelash extensions correctly help you avoid irritation and infections like conjunctivitis, but it will also keep your fake lashes looking full, healthy, and natural.

    Caring for your eyelash extensions will make them last longer.

    Caring for your eyelash extensions begins before you even have them applied. Hanna believes it’s important to do plenty of research on lash techs way before you head out the door so that you can be sure of high quality — and safe — treatment. As soon as you’ve had the treatment, Hanna recommends investing in a gentle, oil-free foam cleanser, as this is what will keep your lashes clean. Don’t be afraid to wet your eyelash extensions, and make sure you wash them at least once a day.

    “After your lashes are washed and dried, give them a gentle brush with a clean mascara-style wand — these are supplied by your lash tech at the end of treatment and will keep your lashes looking super fluffy,” Hanna explained to Prima. If you missed out on a wand, you should be able to pick one up at your local drugstore.

    According to Hanna, those with healthy extensions can wait up to three weeks before having an infill. If cared for correctly, there shouldn’t be any reason they won’t last this long.

    Daring fishermen spotted floating dangerously close to massive 66ft plug hole

    A dog walker has captured the jaw-dropping moment two fishermen floated dangerously close to a huge 66ft plug hole.

    Flo Neilson was walking with her two dogs past the overflow hole at Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire when she spotted the pair in the water.

    Stunned by the sight, she began filming as they paddled terrifyingly near to the massive hole.

    She told the BBC: “It appeared they were floating towards the plug hole whilst still casting their lines, but they were purposely paddling with flippers on their feet.

    "It looked a dangerous and risky thing to do, but they seemed to be in control of the boats and had soon moved away after I'd stopped filming."

    Many social media users were also left taken aback by the daring duo's actions.

    One said: "I find the plug hole the scariest thing … even on video."

    Another added: "It drops about 200 feet and then a 90 degree turn and goes along to the river further down with a sluce gate."

    However some also pointed out it was unlikely the men were in danger.

    One person commented: "I bet if you put the boat right to the edge it would simply bump against the plug hole and very unlikely to go down. Lip of the plug hole is only a few cm below the waterline."

    Another said: "Just to confirm, these guys are using float tubes, not boats. Their legs are beneath the water.

    "They wear flippers like scuba divers. So they'd just hit the wall of the plughole. Be almost impossible to go over the edge."

    My boyfriend was cheating with his ex and it broke me — so I slept with his best mate – The Sun

    DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend cheated on me with his ex and it hurt me so much I had sex with his best mate. I’m 26 and my boyfriend is 29. We got together five years ago and it felt like real love.

    He spent most of the week round at my flat and I loved having someone to cook for and care for, and someone to love me in bed.  He said he had been lucky to find someone so special.

    But then a mate told me she had heard he was seeing his ex.  She is the mum of his sons so I said to my mate that just showed he was getting things right as a dad.

    But just to be sure, I went through his phone and the messages told me the rumours were right. I was totally broken and told him to get himself out of my flat and leave me alone.

    He was shocked and swore that he loved me the best. But I stuck to my guns. He tried to persuade me he had just made a stupid mistake and he texted me two or three times every day.

    I was tempted to let him back into my life but knew I could never forgive his lies and live with the hurt he had caused.

    One day, I was out in the pub with some friends when I saw his best mate, who is 30, wander into the bar.  He saw me, bought me a drink and was openly flirting.

    I’d soon had three or four shots and thought if I slept with his mate, there would be no turning back — I would be free of the cheating and hurting and have to just move on and get on with my life.

    We went back to his flat and had sex but it didn’t feel right and afterwards I just couldn’t wait to get home. My ex is still doing his best to get back with me. Should I tell him I slept with his mate?

    DEIDRE SAYS:  I do understand the temptation to shock and hurt him but I think you would regret it – it could well backfire.

    You had downed a few drinks when you slept with his mate and you know it didn’t feel right. Why cause anger and hurt that would break up a friendship?

    Of course, the best mate doesn’t sound much of a friend to your ex, but spilling the beans to your ex would likely bring only anger and trouble your way.

    Keep what happened that night to yourself and I’m sure your ex’s mate will be doing the same.

    Tell your ex, once again, that it’s over and tell him you’re putting a block on your phone so you won’t see his texts.

    Be glad you’re not tied to a cheat and that you’re young, with the world at your feet and are free to move on.
