Here's What Your Love Life Looks Like This Month

comments
Be still thy beating heart! September is off to an auspicious start as cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars make an exact connection on the 1st. What we want and need becomes even clearer after the 6th, when Venus snaps out of a five-week retrograde. Keep it PG though, people. Stern Saturn trudges through sexy Scorpio until the 17th, putting our naughtier natures on ice. With two eclipses this September — on the 13th and 27th — there will be lots of surprises in store. Secret crushes may be revealed, and our own hidden desires will come to light. Romance gets epic on the 23rd, when the sun heads into Libra for a month. Bring on the red roses, promise rings, and teary-eyed declarations of love. But, make sure you’re sure before you get down on bended knee or fire off a sexy Snapchat, because Mercury is retrograde from September 17 until October 9, causing signals to scramble.

Aquarius Love Forecast

You love them, you love them not. Stop pulling petals off that daisy — September’s stars bring total clarity about your feelings. A rocky romance will not make it past this month’s discerning vibes unless you can strike a long-lasting compromise. Fortunately, stable Saturn will help you negotiate your needs after the 17th. While you crave excitement, you hate drama. Anyone bringing it your way must go. Say your goodbyes in time with the solar eclipse on the 13th.

This eclipse could illuminate a promising — and super-sexy — long-term prospect for single Water Bearers, too. If you’re happily paired up, this eclipse brings sexy back big time. Break out your best moves or take a tantric workshop together. Venus ends a five-week retrograde on the 6th, helping you resolve issues with an ex. You’ll either get back together or close the door for good. No more gray areas. Right swipe or get online on the 27th, because the month’s second eclipse could deliver an ideal match.

Your Beauty Forecast: A Fine Wine
To get the look, mix a dime-sized amount of liquid luminizer with your foundation for a bit of lit-from-within glow. Keep your eyes neutral with just a touch of shimmery taupe eyeshadow and mascara. Then, shape your brows with a pencil and brow gel. Define your cheekbones by applying a foundation two shades darker than your natural skin tone in the hollows of your cheeks, and blend in the shade with a duo-fiber brush to avoid any harsh lines. Next, line your lips in a deep-wine shade and fill in with a matching lip stain. Finally, use a lip brush to blend out the color to the edges of your lips for full color impact.
