Your Love Horoscope
Aries-Libra oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn (throughout the week) and the New Moon and Saturn (this weekend) can produce a conflict between expressing your individuality and respecting/acknowledging the feelings of others. Additionally, Mercury in Aries turning retrograde on Wednesday (through May 14) can stymie communications. On the upside, it encourages a review of how you express yourself. Best days for socializing: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Aries: The intense focus on partnerships illuminates any me-versus-we issues you may have, which can involve sharing, cooperation or commitment. You may feel pressured to compromise in a relationship or business partnership. What’s more, this weekend’s New Moon in your sign energizes your self-expression and charisma, but will also heighten any selfish inclinations you may have.
Taurus: Whether it’s passion, anger or the need for some downtime with your sweetie, emotions you’ve been suppressing may erupt out of your unconscious sometime this week. Acknowledging them will free up your emotional energy, just in time for this weekend’s lusty New Moon! Just be aware of your energy levels so you don’t get depleted.
Gemini: As friendship and romance play tug-of-war, a compromise may be needed between activities with friends and time spent with your sweetie. Socializing escalates particularly during the New Moon this weekend. Getting involved in a community project (or another group endeavor) can bring satisfaction – and perhaps a romantic interlude as well!
Cancer: You’ll likely feel both motivated and frustrated at times this week as multiple activities, people and projects pull you in different directions. Setting some priorities will help you get centered. Romance can be found during a friendly gathering, especially if it’s connected to your work. A public event can bring a romantic prospect this weekend!
Leo: Finding a balance between your ideals about love and the reality of how things stand may be your biggest challenge this week. Being an optimistic Fire sign will help you envision the best-case scenario, but you’ll need patience in working out any issues that stand in the way. Romance with someone from another country or culture is likely this weekend.
Virgo: How you handle conflicts over resources such as money, energy or priorities will determine how much desire you have left over for romance. Making an effort to socialize with close friends or spend time with your sweetie will uplift you. Intimacy will deepen this weekend if you knock down an emotional wall and open up.
Libra: The Aries-Libra tug-of-war hits squarely in your partnership sector, so you may need to negotiate more than usual to get what you want in a relationship – without losing your identity, values or money in the process. Know when to stand strong and when to compromise. The New Moon brings a relationship “ah-ha!” moment this weekend.
Scorpio: Your desire to get things done may conflict with a need to let things be, in your relationship or another major area of your life. Taking some downtime will not only reignite the flame with your sweetie, but will help you get in touch with your needs. Romance can be found during a healthy or helpful activity this weekend.
Sagittarius: Romance would be soaring, if not for some pesky problem like commitment or duty that keeps you from fully enjoying yourself. The key is to find a deeper meaning in the love you hold in your heart instead of seeking greener pastures. Same goes for the weekend, when responsible Saturn grounds/guides the romance-questing New Moon.
Capricorn: Your Saturn ruler butting heads with Jupiter means you’ll likely have to face some self-imposed limitations. This can apply to romance, where limiting beliefs about your ability to attract a compatible partner or sustain a long-term relationship hinders your love life. Analyzing family patterns pertaining to relationships will bring a valuable insight this weekend.
Aquarius: Timing is everything when it comes to romance this week. Knowing when to make a move and when to hold back is the key to success. Knowing what to say, when to say it and when to keep silent is also crucial. Let common sense guide you. Lighthearted flirting may turn into a serious discussion this weekend.
Pisces: Your boundaries may be tested in a relationship this week. Having good judgment when offering your time, money or something more intimate will keep people from taking advantage of you. In other words, don’t be a doormat, either in or out of the bedroom. A gift that shows your appreciation inspires romance this weekend.
