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.

Virgo Love Forecast

You’re a restless romantic in May, as spring fever continues to consume you. Therefore, you’ll need a longer leash this month — and maybe some looser restrictions on what constitutes flirting and what’s just harmless banter. With the sun in your indie-spirited ninth house until the 21st, being fenced in could make you downright claustrophobic. That said, you’re not necessarily commitment-phobic. You just long for the company of a fellow adventurer who wants to explore the hidden corners of the world. Cross-cultural attractions simmer with extra heat. You could meet someone while traveling for business or on a getaway with your girls. Don’t rule out a long-distance relationship either. After the 21st, you’ll be in a more serious mood and ready to approach love from a long-range perspective.

As such, there couldn’t be a better month for you to slip off on a couple’s getaway. Depart before signal-scrambler Mercury turns retrograde on the 18th. However, if you’re a social butterfly in a relationship with a homebody, you might not be spending a whole lot of time together. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, as long as you keep your daredevil streak in check. It’s all too easy to get caught up in the moment and throw good sense out the window. Near May 25, remember this: When you compare, you despair. Don’t measure your relationship against your friends’ or worry if they think your arm candy is cute. If you find them attractive and enticing, that’s really all that counts.

Your Beauty Forecast: Dewy Color
To get the look, first use an illuminator, and then blend on BB cream with a foundation brush for perfect-looking skin. Swipe a gold cream shadow onto your eyelids and up above the brows into the temples. Curl your lashes, but leave them mascara-free. Apply bronzy shadow on the cheeks and into the temples, blending with the gold eye color. Top it off with a highlighter for extra sheen. Finish up with a coral red stain on your lips.
