(March 21 to April 19)

The thing about unrequited love is that while it's full of drama and yearning, it involves a lot less work than being in an actual two-way street relationship. While you're pining away for someone, your main concern is you. When you get the romantic love you think you want, you're going to have to do some grunt work: compromise, sacrifice, and selflessness. Don't be in such a rush for the real deal—there's something fun, light, and easy about holding a torch for someone out of reach.


(April 20 to May 20)

Have you ever made a Freudian slip before? When you're chatting with your friends, does the name of a guy accidentally slip out even if you're talking about a totally different topic? Your subconscious may be on to something—it's about time you listen to it. Your brain may be telling you that you're interested in someone and that’s well and good; but there's a possibility that your heart is actually watching out for someone else.


(May 21 to June 20)

You're a woman with a mission this month, Gemini, and it looks like you're not going to let anyone or anything get in your way. If you're determined to make things happen with the object of your affection, there is no doubt that you're going to move through hell or high water to go for gold. Your perseverance is admirable, but remember that relationships involve two people. The other party has to have a say in what happens too.

There's a big of regret nagging you this month, Cancer. Was there a relationship you mishandled, or someone you broke up with prematurely? Setbacks happen in love all the time, and while you can't take back the mistakes you make, these mishaps hold lessons you could definitely learn from. If you're fixating on something you did wrong, ask yourself what you can do right now. Make those regrets worth your time by turning them into rights instead of wrongs.


(July 23 to August 22)

Are you feeling some pressure to partner up with someone this summer? Sure, a fling may sound appealing but it's not what your heart needs at the moment. Switching from one crush to the next, going from one romantic "maybe" to another overnight can be fun albeit tiring. Both your head and heart are asking for some rest from romance this month. It's time you focus attention on self-love instead. Treat yourself the way you'd love a future boyfriend to treat you—it's equally as rewarding, maybe even more.


(August 23 to September 22)

Feeling extra protective of that relationship that's just starting? Listen to your instincts because there may be some kind of competition hovering around you and your guy. You've lucked out on the love lottery and that means others have their eyes on him too! Be on guard but watch that you don't become insufferably defensive or overprotective of your relationship. No chill is never cool.


(September 23 to October 22)

Surrender to serendipity this month, Libra. You can plan out your summer romance all you want, but the truth is, a lot of what may or may not happen depends on chance, luck, and a little bit of magic. If someone's caught your attention, just do your best to put yourself in the right place at the right time, strike up a conversation every now and again, and sit and wait. Trust that you've been proactive enough—let love surprise you.


(October 23 to November 21)

May has the potential to bring you a lot of ups and downs on the love front, which makes for an exciting summer. Whether you admit it or not, you do love the drama...just make sure that you don't linger in it for too long. Watch out for mixed signals you may be sending someone—you want to make sure you communicate your feelings and thoughts very clearly. Also ask yourself if you may be misinterpreting someone's actions—it will do you well to not assume.


(November 22 to December 21)

An overloaded summer can wipe away any chance at love. If you're too busy with college entrance exam review, varsity training, or even with back-to-back family trips, you don't need to force romance to enter the picture. Priorities come into play this month. It's important to know that you can't have it all at the same time. If you're already fully booked, maybe it's better to relegate romance to next month instead.


(December 22 to January 19)


Patience, grasshopper. It will happen eventually—that's if you keep at it and do all the work it will take to make love happen in your life. Giving up too easily and too early on in the game will not leave anyone with a good impression of you, after all. If you're interested in someone, show him that you're in it for the long haul, that you're willing to work through differences and challenges.


(January 20 to February 18)

No amount of preparation can get you ready for the major changes that are coming your way this month, Aquarius. The trick to surviving upheaval is to learn how to go with the flow, and to go with it gracefully. The good thing about having your world turned inside out and upside down is that it means good things are on the horizon. When it comes to love, humility is always a good thing. Watch that pride.


(February 19 to March 20)

If you don't put a little extra time in the love department, you're really not going to move forward. You're normally so inspired and dreamy when it comes to the relationship you want, but the summer sun seems to be drying you up. Get inspired by love again by watching your fave rom com or soap, reconnecting with a crush you had in grade school, or dolling yourself up. You can't give up on love now—it's bound to get interesting soon.
