It’s Here! Your Monthly Love Horoscope Awaits

comments
Va-va-voom! May is off to a sultry start thanks to a full moon in Scorpio on the 3rd. As the sun tours traditional Taurus toward the end of the month, you’ll get the urge to settle down. (Do we hear bells?) But, don’t start doodling names in hearts and Googling wedding china just yet. Passionate Mars will swoop into flirty Gemini on May 11. (Watch out: Your eyes may wander during this six-week phase.) This month could also bring second thoughts about a romance — or a second chance with the one who got away. Don’t be too quick to categorize people in the second half of the month. You may just find that friends can become lovers and deeper connections are revealed. Buckle up your seat belts — May is coming in hot.

Gemini Love Forecast

Okay, Gemini: May is time to leave the past behind and move on to a brighter future. Time’s up on sleeping in your ex’s vintage band tee or scrolling through their Instagram feed. And, if you’re in a relationship, stop bringing up that subject again — the one you claimed to have forgiven your partner for. Remember to stay focused on the future instead. Adopt this new MO in May, and trust the universe. Just be careful not to come on too strong. With Mercury retrograde in Gemini from May 18 until June 11, you could give off the wrong signals. Use your words so no one misinterprets your subtle hints.

Passion planet Mars makes its biannual stopover in Gemini from May 11 until the end of June, pumping you full of mojo. You’ll be inspired to take great care of yourself again with workouts and nourishing food, and your radiant glow will attract a healthy mate. You may even meet at said gym. Coupled Gems, why not turn your bedroom buddy into your fitness buddy? After spotting each other through an endorphin rush, you’ll be in the mood for more action behind closed doors. Having fun together is certainly the glue that binds, but you need someone who can hold you during the rough times, too. Keep that boundary in mind.

Your Beauty Forecast: A Graphic Eye & Coral Glow
To get the look, line the upper lashline with black liquid liner and the lower lashline with black kajal liner. For a cool pop-art effect, make small crisscrosses through your eyelid to your crease with the liquid liner by laying the brush on its side. Brighten your face by using a highlighter just on top of the cheeks and a peachy-coral powder blush on the apples of the cheeks. Finish off with a matching coral lip balm, topped with an orangey lip gloss.
