Your May Love Horoscope, Revealed

comments

What a lucky month to be in love! Literally. Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, dances a passionate paso doble with romantic goddess Venus, opening hearts everywhere. In technical terms, the two planets form an auspicious 120-degree angle called a trine, which only happens a few times (if that) each year. May 10 is the official date of the trine, and the effects can be felt for a few days before and after.


Jupiter is the cosmic gambler and supersizer. Whatever it beams on gets bigger — well, make that massive. If you're feeling the love, there's no holding back now. May could bring a flurry of fast engagements, key exchanges, and elopements. Jet-setting Jupiter also sparks cross-cultural attractions and vacation romances. Couples should definitely travel together in May, especially when Jupiter ends its retrograde after the 9th. Of course, this all comes with a downside. Lovers' quarrels will get inflamed by the planet’s truth serum. Thankfully, diplomatic Venus can help you address touchy topics without losing your cool. Buckle up; May will be quite the ride.

Capricorn

If your exes are haunting you, use May to mourn, purge, and get 'em out of your system. With motivator Mars backstroking through your 12th house of endings all month, you might have a few tears to shed. (P.S., Capricorn, that doesn't mean you can't simultaneously give someone new a chance.) With a sizzling lineup of planets in Taurus and your fifth house of glamour, passion, and true love, May will be chock full of heart-thumping moments. The new moon on the 6th could bring a swoon-worthy prospect. You may meet at a party or live show.

Already involved? This could be the month you decide to move in together, get engaged, or even make a baby. The 10th will be an epic day, as jet-setting Jupiter may inspire a dreamy couple's vacation or kick a long-distance or cross-cultural relationship into high gear. Be bold and pursue; this is your month to take the lead in love. After the 20th, things cool down a little as the sun slips into Gemini and your healthy-living zone. You'll crave more stability and might even prefer the low-key types to the enthralling rockstars. Since you'll be on a wellness mission, you could find love on the outdoor running trail. Or, if attached, enlist your sweetie as a workout buddy and get in shape together.
