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.

Leo Love Forecast

Treating your love life the same way you approach your career doesn’t always bring the sexiest results. But, in May, you could afford to be a little more businesslike in affairs of the heart. Think about it: Would you waste your time at a dead-end job that paid you peanuts? We doubt it. So, if the object of your affection clams up every time you mention the word “future,” tender your romantic resignation. Then, raise those standards and get clear on your goals. Having a sharper vision of love will make the screening process quicker. You could even meet your match through a work function. Source the suit-and-tie crowd and attend elite social events — it’s not about being snobbish, it’s about being selective.

If you’re in a relationship, live out your power-couple fantasies. Hosting a party together before the 18th could solidify your standing and also provide a fabulous way to bond. But, as Venus heads into your 12th house of healing and subconscious thoughts on the 7th, you’ll have to deal with relationship roadblocks. A few couples-therapy sessions could be worth it. Single? Use this Venus phase for a dating detox. Your “picker” may be off and in need of some fine-tuning. Toward the month’s end (post-timeout), lusty Mars, the vibrant sun, and (uh-oh) Mercury retrograde will also occupy your laidback, team-spirited 11th house. Go on agenda-free hangouts with your crew. You may find sparks with a friend of a friend.

Your Beauty Forecast: The Power Brow
To get the look, fill in your brows with a gold cream shadow. Curl your lashes, but keep them mascara-free. Contour your face with bronzer, sweeping under your cheekbones, towards your temples. If you have issues finding where to contour, do the "fish face" and apply the powder into the hollows. And, with your lips, you can go neutral with nudes or go bold with a red.
