A new moon in kindred earth sign Taurus on May 15 has you focused on abundance and obtaining material goods. Love isn’t a possession, of course, but you’re interested in making your love life the best it can be, and you’re willing to go to great lengths to make that happen. Giving luxurious gifts and planning lavish dates are your go-to strategies, and if you can’t impress your partner or someone you’d like to date with the tangibles you can offer, you’ll find an equally impressive way to prove your value.

You pay close attention to details during the trine between communicative Mercury and retrograde Saturn on the eighteenth, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you miss one here or there. Ideally, you’d be able to tie up things in a neat little bow, but love can be messy. Your well-meaning intentions will just have to be good enough for now.

May 26 brings an unbalanced Venus-Saturn opposition, which means you should be ready for some alone time. Most romantic efforts you make now will be shot down at worst and ignored at best, causing you to wonder why you even try. Have a long-term goal in mind so that small defeats don’t hurt as much.
