A Look At Your Love Life In 2016, According To Your Sign

comments
Fantasy or reality? In 2016 we’ll search for the elusive balance between both. Stern Saturn locks horns with flighty Neptune three times this year, while eclipses teeter between practical Virgo and ultra-romantic Pisces. What does that mean for you? Love has to be stable and soulfully stimulating. Plus — time to sign that exclusivity clause! Sultry Mars spends six months in Scorpio (January to March and June to August), bringing passion — and possessiveness — to a fever pitch. Planets in mutable signs all year can make us prone to changing our minds way too many times. But while we may feel trapped by commitment in moments, the emotional security of a real relationship allows us to open up to new levels of intimacy in the coming year. New year, new love — are you ready?

Aquarius Love Forecast

No more playing games with your heart! With expansive Jupiter activating your “all in” eighth house, you won’t settle for less than a mind-body-soul connection. A sexy one, too, since this is the erogenous zone of the zodiac wheel. Variety is the spice of your life, so seek out a multidimensional partner and you’ll never be bored. Plus, this Jupiter cycle inspires you to really let people see your vulnerable parts. The one you can trust will win your heart.

Love planet Venus visits Aquarius twice in 2016, setting the stage for romance. Digital dating could yield a true click while lusty Mars tours your tech sector for five months (from March 7 to May 28 and August 3 to September 28). The object of your affections might even be a little older or more established than you. Sparks could fly with a cutie from a different culture after September 9 when Jupiter surfs through your jet-setting ninth house for a year. Involved? Take an epic vacation together in the last quarter of 2016. From November 10 to December 20, you’ll host passionate Mars in your sign, which makes you fearless in your pursuit of amour!

Your Beauty Forecast: Sexy Smolder
To get the look, embrace the imperfect. After prepping your skin with foundation and concealer, apply a shimmery taupe shadow with a soft blending brush. Dust the shadow over your lids, extending it slightly past the outer corners for added depth. Next, line your lower lashlines, including the waterlines, with a soft black pencil, smudging it out for a lived-in feel. (You can also up the intensity by layering dark shadow over the liner.) Coat both your upper and lower lashes in mascara, adding multiple coats for that same smudgy effect. Keep the rest of your face simple with barely there contouring and nude matte lips.
