Your lusty cosmic ruler Mars is lighting up your sign with its passionate energy all month long, so May is a fabulous time to put yourself out there when it comes to love. If there’s someone you’re interested in or something you want out of an existing relationship, take the lead and speak your truth! Take some time out to connect with your partners sensually or plan something a little extra luxurious with someone new, especially under the new moon on May 7.

Gemini season is the time to get your flirt on, so spark up some fun convos with your significant other or start swiping on apps to chat with potential dates. Your taste for adventure and new experiences is extra high under the fiery full moon on May 23, but be wary of losing your cool on a lover at the end of the month. You may feel triggered, but that doesn’t mean you have to pop off. Be vulnerable about how you’re feeling instead.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your glamorous cosmic ruler Venus lights up your sign with its romantic charms throughout the first few weeks of the month, so expect to feel extra alluring. Your natural charisma will infuse your relationships with some added sweetness — and if you’re single, it’ll be easy to attract someone you’ve had your eye on. The new moon in your sign on May 7 brings your heart a gorgeous fresh slate, ushering in the start of something special and opening new doors to pleasure.

Curveballs in love could come flying your way mid-month, so set any stubbornness aside and remember that change can be a good thing!

The full moon a few days later brings a refreshing sense of spontaneity and adventure to your relationships, so maximize the free-spirited vibes.

Love planet Venus enters your sign on the same day as the full moon, so look forward to a glow-up that makes your charms virtually irresistible. If you’re trying to catch someone’s eye, now’s the time. Things get even more magical come May 25, when lucky planet Jupiter enters your sign for the first time since 2013.

If you’re single, embrace some boundless idealism and open your mind to the possibility that your fantasies could become a reality.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Putting some thought and effort into your romantic connections now could really pay off.

Some feelings from former relationships could surface under the full moon two weeks later but use whatever’s coming up as fuel for growth.
