(March 21 to April 19)
If we could all solve the puzzle of how to move on from an ex, things would be a whole lot easier, wouldn't it? Never fear, you do have the ability to move onward and upward in your love life if you follow these rules. Keep your head over heart for now, no more waxing nostalgic about someone who wasn't good for you. Welcome the brutal truth, no matter how painful it is. Be clear about the kind of relationship that is good for you because once you figure that out, you'll recognize it when you see it.
(April 20 to May 20)
In the market for a new love? This month's looking promising for you...only if you put your head and heart in the right place. Instead of obsessing over the younger guy you've been guiltily crushing on, try to set your sights on someone more mature. You're in good hands when you start dating someone who's got his life together, not someone who doesn't have a clue. It'll be fun to cruise through a relationship when you're in it with a partner who's got good control of the reins (and shares them with you too).
(May 21 to June 20)
Don't spread yourself too thin, Gemini. Let go of the "collect and select" mentality and instead, reserve your time, energy and efforts for guys who actually show some legit promise. Playing the dating game can be exhausting, but this month, the stars ask you to hold on to hope that things will turn out fine. As long as you stick to the rules of self-preservation, you'll be fine. Let things run their natural course, take things at a steady and slow pace, and protect your heart.
(June 21 to July 22)
Hundreds of songs, books and movies have been written about competition in love...and while it sucks to fall for the one person that everybody else has a thing for, this sticky situation can also inspire you to step up your game. No, this isn't about girls battling girls—it's about figuring out that your end game isn’t winning him over, it's scoring the ultimate self-confidence. Don't let others get you down and instead use this virtual tug of war love scenario to have you meet your best self.
(July 23 to August 22)
Spread your wings, Leo...because this month is the time to explore your options as far as relationships are concerned. Staying in your comfort zone and becoming a hermit can seem like the "safer" option, but holing yourself up in a box won't expose you to the plethora of experiences that stepping bravely out into the world of dating can give you. Be ready to meet new people, guard your heart and don't take anyone too seriously, and just have fun. Look outside of yourself because it'll do you good.
(August 23 to September 22)
Your current relationship is certainly not going to progress if you're not ready to communicate honestly, fairly and truthfully. Risk that little bit of vulnerability in order to get to the next level...whether that means finally talking to the crush that gives you butterflies, or even doing a much-needed DTR with your "best guy friend" in order to see where things are going. You risk stagnating in your current position if you're not ready to speak up.
(September 23 to October 22)
You're a master at keeping it together and looking like nothing affects you, but really, all the emotions are kind of a huge mess beneath the surface. Take this month to release all those ugly, sad, grief-filled thoughts. Without letting them out, they're just going to stay there, poisoning every new opportunity that comes for you to be happy. Talk to a good friend, your guidance counselor, or even someone on the internet about it. Without judgement, let all of it spill out and be grateful for the purge.
(October 23 to November 21)
If you have a feeling that things with your current love interest are going to turn out fine and in your favor but have no proof, give your intuition a chance to prove itself right. Sure, your friends may call you out on certain delusions... And yes, you may feel stupid at times for believing it will work out with someone whose eyes are clearly set on someone else. But four weeks isn’t too long for you to endure. If after this month, everything is a fail? Move on.
(November 22 to December 21)
So it's not working out the way you thought it would. You're allowed to cry, feel bad, lash out, throw a tantrum, and be a brat about it. Just make sure that you do all that thrashing in a safe space, surrounded by your best girls. It's important to have your friends with you and not allow your world to be enveloped just by your relationship, because your best friends are going to be crucial in picking up the pieces and finding yourself whole again.
(December 22 to January 19)
Whether you feel it or not, you've got a whole lot of wisdom to offer when it comes to love. This month, take the focus out of you for a moment (because things seem to be just peachy in your love life), and shift your gaze towards people around you who need to hear about your experiences. You've got friends surrounding you who could benefit from your love advice—don't hesitate when they ask for help. Unsolicited advice is never appreciated, but the nurturer in you will know exactly what to say.
(January 20 to February 18)
If you've been carrying the burden of responsibility when it comes to your love life, know that you don't have to bear the brunt of it all the time. Instead of being in a situation that you know will inflict more pain, hesitation, self-doubt and insecurity in you, remove yourself from it and give yourself some much-needed space and time to heal. Find a partner who will meet you halfway and will offer to support you when things are tough—not someone who will leave you when things get sticky.
(February 19 to March 20)
A watched pot never boils—which means that you can keep your eye on every single move, sentence, and exchange between you and the object of your affection, but being too concerned over every little detail will just make the "will he or won't he?" question all the more unbearable. Learn to loosen your grip on the outcome you want and just try, as best as you can, to channel the spirit of abundance. Believe that you're as magnetic, magnanimous and as lovely as you can be and the right person will see it without prodding.
