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.

Sagittarius

If May had a love language it would be "acts of service." A posse of planets huddle in your helpful sixth house, making you Best Supporting Lovemate. Want to win loyalty points with bae or your latest crush? Be there as the rock-solid champion and the person with the practical advice. Looking for love? This month you may be attracted to someone more mature, even a little older. You could meet a match via a professional event near the 10th, when Jupiter and Venus sync up in your career zones.

In an LTR? Starting a side business with your boo could be the perfect way to fund a future vacation or mortgage. And while the first half of May is all about them, don't worry, you'll have your moment from the 20th on when the sun beams into Gemini and your zone of committed relationships. An attractive "opposite" could sweep you off your statement sandals, or you could get exclusive with someone you've been dating casually. On the 21st, the first of a rare pair of Sagittarius full moons lights up the skies. This is your day to shine, no apologies. Don't worry about overwhelming a romantic interest with your passionate power. The right partner will love live-out-loud you. Give it a month: The rockstars you attract on the 21st could profess their love during the sequel Sagittarius full moon in June.
