Your heart needs a righteous break from the past. When you're grieving a breakup or getting over someone, you just want to skip the process and jump from point A to point B. Sadly, you can't skip the long walk between heartbreak and the making of a new you (and the possibility of a new relationship). Think of this month as your time to pick up the pieces of your heart and put them back together. Reinforce your love life with some hypothetical superglue by making September all about self-love.
(April 20 to May 20)
Are you ducking out of an important conversation you need to have with your guy? It takes major guts to confront certain issues and it's way too easy to retreat back into solitary confinement to avoid having The Talk. Whether you need to finally DTR or are running out of time between now and just asking him out already, face up to the music. If you're ever going to progress with this love connection, you're going to have to learn how to talk to each other.
(May 21 to June 20)
You're headed towards a brand new chapter, as far as your relationship is concerned—and you're a lot more prepared for love this time around. Your head is in a really clear place—you're no longer clouded by a ton of misaligned expectations. You know what you want and you know you deserve it. You're starting things fresh again. Enjoy the honeymoon period with yourself or your guy. Things don’t stay this bright and sunny for too long!
(June 21 to July 22)
It's time to get a little more cutthroat in terms of your relationships. No more faffing around, trying to play the nice card to give way to your partner's (sometimes annoying) wants and needs. You deserve to set the rules straight—if you're tired of constantly hanging out with his friends, maybe it's time to demand for some quality time. You're already inherently sensitive and emotional. Putting on a little rigidity by playing hardball may serve you well.
(July 23 to August 22)
You're usually so impulsive and excitable when it comes to love. It's time to turn the volume down several notches and approach your relationship a little more steadily. Enjoy the high that having a stable and supportive connection can bring. It may not be as thrilling as a rollercoaster Romeo and Juliet love affair, but it does one a lot of good to get a little more serious. Maybe it's time to consider really committing.

Is the dating life getting you bogged down? Take a breath, Virgo… there's no rush to find The One right away. Not every guy you're interested in has to be the be-all end-all guy for you—The One For Now could do you some good. Here's an opportunity to lighten up and have a bit of fun. Enjoy the group hangs, the coffee dates, the getting to know you's you're sure to run into as you expand your social circle. Beware of romantic burnout!
(September 23 to October 22)
The thing about endings is that they'e also beginnings. It's finally clicking—why a past relationship or past love had to work out that way. You're seeing the sense in moving on. And sure, letting something go comes with way more sadness than we ever hope to encounter in our life, but this experience has made you all the more better at handling your own emotions. The next one's going to be so much better.
(October 23 to November 21)
Is love making you feel a little weary? If the mere idea of boyfriends, dating, long-term relationships, and commitments is stressing you out, do yourself a favor and let go of the pressure to keep up with all your coupled-up friends. Think of working with the seasons—it's totally okay to just keep things quiet romantically for a while. Take as long as you need to surrender to the single life. We promise, it's not bad at all.
(November 22 to December 21)
It can't be helped—falling in love with someone brings both happiness and heartache. The trick to making love last is to accept the ups and downs, and forgive yourself for the inevitable mistakes and missteps that are sure to come when you're in it deep with (or for) someone. Try not to get all caught up in the little things and stick to the big picture instead—it'll make life so much easier (and more pleasant) to deal with.
(December 22 to January 19)
It's important to spend a lot of time with your guy, no matter what stage of the relationship you're in. Sometimes though, we get so caught up in new love that we forget our lives outside of boyfriend-girlfriend life. Carve out some time in your schedule for your girl friends. Don't get stuck in a couple rut and remember that you can be yourself, truly, when you're with your friends too.
(January 20 to February 18)
Sometimes, it just feels good to crawl into our own little holes and just be away from all the chaos that can come with relationship drama. Give yourself a chance to be on your own to catch your breath, Aquarius. If you dive in and get messy before you can gather your thoughts, you might get lost in all the madness. You can't be in an effective relationship if you don't know how to put yourself first. It's time for self-love.
(February 19 to March 20)
You've got a ton of options when it comes to love. But there's no way you're going to figure out just how many dateable people are out there if you stick yourself in a little comfort zone box. Daring to daydream about the possibilities can be incredibly healing, especially if you've been burned by relationships before. Everyone deserves to at least imagine that ideal guy. It'll get you excited to finally get real life romance going again.
