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.

Pisces Love Forecast

May arrives with a Code Orange flirt alert. You’ll shamelessly bat those lashes, drop subversive comments into conversations, and see so many sexy souls to wrap around your gel-manicured finger. With Venus in Cancer from May 7 on, your passionate, glamorous fifth house will be electrified. Whether single or spoken for, you’ll crave lots of attention. Although you can come on pretty strong this month, Venus will soften that edge, ensuring that your advances are well received.

After the 21st, you’ll definitely be in the mood to get cozier. Talks could turn to cohabitation or you could earmark a couple of regular sleepover nights each week. Single? Symbolically create space for a partner to come in. Leave some empty hangers in your closet, frame a romantic print over your bed, and place pairs of objects around your apartment. You could meet a hot prospect through the introduction of your girlfriends this May, too. If you’re already sharing a love nest, team up on a home-improvement project, but keep it easy and manageable. When Mercury turns retrograde for three weeks on the 18th, you could squabble over household duties or even catch heat from each other’s families. Choose your battles, Pisces. That snarky comment you make about your sweetie’s sister could do irreparable damage. Don’t let friends and relatives control your romantic choices, though. They aren’t living your love story; you are.

Your Beauty Forecast: Edgy Double Cat-Eyes
To get the look, shape your brows with a pencil and brow gel. Apply a copper shadow to the crease and softly along the eyelid. Using an eyepencil in the same color, draw two floating lines at the outer corner of the eye. Curl your lashes, and apply two healthy coats of mascara. To finish the look, contour with bronzer and highlighter, and then apply a rich, rosy lip balm.
