Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the recommended social distancing, dating and relationships — especially online dating — have dramatically shifted. Instead of meeting up at happy hour or grabbing dinner with a cute dating-app match, things have moved to Zoom dates and virtual conversations. And if you’re into astrology, you might be wondering what all of this means for your zodiac sign this month. Well, we have some good and bad news: there will be a bit of drama, but May is mostly bringing in some sweet transits that will help us get our “feel good” vibes back on.
POPSUGAR spoke with Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com and Horoscope.com, about what’s to come for the first month of warmer weather and lots of sunshine, and boy, it’s a lot. While May starts off strong with a “sultry” Scorpio full moon, it’s what happens after that will have everyone on their toes. According to Montúfar, “the biggest love-related news this month is lover of pleasure Venus starting her six-week retrograde on May 12, having us revise serious relationship issues that have been hiding under the surface.” Talk about relationship drama! Fortunately, Montúfar doesn’t think this tension should last too long. “The Gemini new moon will arrive on May 22 to lighten the mood when we need it the most.”
