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.

Libra Love Forecast

Meow, Libra! You’re quite the seductress as May opens up, but you’re longing for more than just a physical attraction. Deep-dive into the emotion ocean to find someone who can stir your soul — and don’t let the quiet ones fool you! The strong, silent type could be the perfect complement for your bubbly, social self. To get in a sexy headspace this month, give your lingerie drawer a refresher and make a point of exercising more. That rush of endorphins will boost your mojo.

On May 11, Mars heads into your indie-spirited ninth house, creating a bit of a double standard. While you want someone to be hopelessly devoted to you, offering the same in return could prove challenging. Traveling with your love interest and planning lots of playtime OUT of the house can keep you from getting bored and straying. Cross-cultural attractions heat up for Libras, as well, especially when the sun joins Mars in your ninth house after the 21st. Mercury turns retrograde from May 18 until June 11, which could bring back blasts from the past. Reconnect with someone you met while traveling or a long-distance love interest. If nothing else, you’ll have an intriguing chapter to add to your memoirs one day.

Your Beauty Forecast: A Flushed Glow
To get the look, prep skin with primer before using a damp sponge to apply foundation, creating a sheer veil. For this glow, apply highlighter to the center of the face, cheekbones, Cupid's bow, and inner corner of the eyes. The highlight should look airbrushed. Now, apply a hot-pink shadow across the apples of the cheeks and softly on the nose for a sun-kissed flush. Finish with a pink lipstick.
