Your May Love Horoscope, Revealed


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.


You're packing major heat this May, Taurus, as planets swirl through your sign all month. Not only will the sun beam here until the 20th, but also your ruler Venus will flow through your sign until the 25th. This makes you ultra-magnetic, so be careful what you wish for. Save your final rose for someone who can give as good as they get. You'll make a fresh start in love on the 6th when the annual new moon in Taurus boosts your courage and confidence. A few days later, on the 10th, Venus syncs up with bold Jupiter in your romance house — a perfect time to make a daring move or to dive back into the dating pool. Your love jones could extend to a long-distance hottie on the 13th. If you're involved, this would be the perfect date for a couples' getaway.

Try not to keep secrets this month. With fiery Mars retrograding through your mysterious eighth house, bae could feel betrayed by a "lie by omission." It’s better to open up about your past than to let them find out through the grapevine. Also, playing too hard to get could take the wind out of a pursuer's sails. The full moon on the 21st lights up your eighth house of seduction and perma-bonding. A fierce but unrequited attraction could explode into a delicious chemistry experiment. Coupled Bulls could lay down an ultimatum: Love me right or leave me alone! This could be a day for the history books, though; one where true love turns into a lifelong commitment.
