Lovescopes (May 2016)
(March 21 to April 19)
There's a strong pull for you to dive deep into the archive of your forgotten blog or the secret journals you hide under your bed. An old flame is sparking up some serious feels. Keep things simple and fun for now—there's a reason why things went south for you two when you first got together! That said, Pandora's Box may come with both great risks and great rewards.
(April 20 to May 20)
It's tempting to immerse yourself fully in your heady summer romance, but do you really have to be with your guy 24/7? Your days may have totally been taken over by your infatuation—watch out! You may be running the risk of becoming that girl (you know, the one who forgets everything else once a boy enters the picture). Don't forget your life outside your relationship—everyone will thank you for it.
(May 21 to June 20)
The rest of the summer looks to be drama-free! That is, as long as you can stay steady for a couple of weeks without feeling like you want to stir things up (for no good reason!). If you're in a relationship, enjoy the smooth ride it isn’t everyday you get to cruise without running into any issues. Single gals will do good to go with the flow—love will come when you stop obsessing about it relentlessly.
(June 21 to July 22)
We all have these stories we like to tell about the state of our love lives—how you and your boyfriend got together, why you’re still not over that ex you've pined over forever, or why you’d rather stay single because you hate what falling in love does to people. These stories help shape who we are, but they're just a small part of the picture. This summer, consider breaking free from the love story you like to tell about yourself over and over. Who knows? Things could get even more interesting ;)
(July 23 to August 22)
There's something about your guy that has you at your absolute wits' end. Can't stand the situation you're in anymore? Itching to get out of a stifling relationship? Wanting to put everything your guy’s ever given you in a box and bury it six feet under? When every single part of you is telling you that something just isn't right, you should probably listen. You can't start something new and better if you're not willing to just finally call it.
(August 23 to September 22)
Your tendency to overanalyze every situation, every text message, every non-reply isn't going to help you any this summer (you're better off reviving this unique talent of yours when the new school year rolls in). It's time to put all those thoughts to bed—there seem to be tons of them right now, so it might take some time. Your mind's overpowering emotion and you’re going to need to tune into what your heart really wants if you’re going to get a move on your love life this season.
(September 23 to October 22)
Go easy on the alone time between you and your guy, now's the time to broaden your circle and get him to hang with you and your friends (or it may be time for him to finally get to know your family!). It may be just you and him involved in the relationship, sure, but for anything to become sustainable, you're going to have to expand and let yourselves move into your own social circles. Don't worry. Your friends will love him.
(October 23 to November 21)
This season's giving you a free pass to start something new in the love department! If you've set your eyes on someone new, the stars are giving you the green light to pursue it and see where this new infatuation will take you (chances are, it's somewhere super promising). If your relationship's been needing an extra boost, it's time to try a new hobby with your guy—change up your usual plans, take up a sport together, or get yourselves into a fun challenge. It'll give you the spark you've been needing for a while now.
(November 22 to December 21)
If you've been wishy-washy about your feelings for someone, this summer's the perfect time to finally set the record straight and be decisive. It's not always the easiest decision to say give that super nice guy a straightforward "nope, this isn't going to work out," but it's better to get the brutal truth out there now than prolong the inevitable. If you feel you’re finally ready to get together with your best bud, what's the point in delaying what you’re sure will be the best relationship you've ever had?
(December 22 to January 19)
Summer's usually time to drop the books, but this month's asking you to put your student hat on when it comes to your love life. If things haven’t been working out, ask yourself why and get super serious about figuring things out (How serious? Think scientific method serious. Analysis is highly encouraged). If you’re ever going to break any negative patterns and get things moving positively, you've got to start with the very basic WHY.
(January 20 to February 18)
As the social butterfly of the zodiac, you're not entirely comfortable with spending time all by yourself. This month's calling out for you to cease the schmoozing for a hot minute and spend some quality Me Time with no one but yourself. One weekend without perpetually thinking about romance isn't that bad... it may actually lead you to rediscover how important self-love is (as long as you're open to it).
(February 19 to March 20)
If there was ever anyone who could score a master's degree in daydreaming, that would be you—and don't get us wrong, that's actually a good trait. Now it's time to take those fantasies and turn them into the real deal (yup, it can happen!). Write out your ideal relationship wish list and believe that all of that can truly be had. Before you know it, you’ll see your dreams transforming into reality (and that includes a possible Prince Charming too!).
