Plus, we’re still in the thick of eclipse season, as a passion-fueled solar eclipse peaks on April 8th. Listen to your heart and enjoy the ride!


March 20th - April 19th

Happy birthday season, Aries! It’s time to let loose and have fun, but be extra cautious with your words when corresponding with lovers (either in person or via text) to avoid any Mercury retrograde drama. Thankfully, amorous Venus hits your sign April 5th, so you’ll have no problem smoothing out potential disagreements with your irresistible birthday season charm. The eclipse on April 8th asks you to get real with yourself and face your fears, while the full moon two weeks later gives you a chance to purge toxic relationship patterns for good. Dig deep!


April 20th - May 20th

This eclipse season has been exhausting, so if you feel like you need some extra space, explain those feelings to your lovers instead of expecting them to read your mind! And get your rest in while you can, because once your birthday season rolls around on April 19th, you’ll be ready to strut your stuff and steal the spotlight. Thrilling meet-cutes or sweet surprises from a partner infuse your love life with magic mid-month onward, so expect to get lucky. Use the full moon on April 23rd to check in on your relationships and bring some vulnerability to the table.


May 21st - June 20th

Mercury retrograde is raging this month, but don’t let that keep you from getting your flirt on. It’s still a great time for group date nights and spicy social outings—as long as you keep your plans flexible to account for retrograde snags. Energy starts slowing down during the last third of the month, so use the full moon on April 23rd to clear your plate, inbox, and Instagram follower list of any unnecessary romantic clutter. If there are dates you’re not really feeling or text convos that are going nowhere, now’s the time to cut things off and make more space for new love.


June 21st -July 22nd

Your career has you booked and busy this month, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to squeeze in some playtime.

July 23rd - August 22nd

Passion is on the menu in a big way this month, if you’re willing to give into it. So fill your plate with plenty of opportunities to up the romance factor—in relationships and situationships alike. The new moon on April 8th gets you in touch with your desires in a deeper way than ever before, while the full moon two weeks later will help you shed any romantic baggage that’s been holding you back from enjoying true intimacy. Focus on letting go of what’s already gone so you don’t miss out on the pleasures that are all around you in the present.


August 23rd - September 22nd

Red-hot planet Mars is electrifying your relationships with an added dose of passion, lust, and desire all month, so go after what you want with gusto.

And that work will pay off, as the full moon on April 23rd will prompt emotional conversations with your lovers, giving you space to talk through your feelings.


September 23rd - October 22nd

With Mercury retrograde spinning through your relationship sector, it may be time to revisit past conversations or face unresolved issues with your lovers—and when you do, be open to outcomes you didn’t expect!

Channel the intensity into red-hot intimacy under the full moon two weeks later, as it’s an especially sexy time to get sensual and maximize your pleasure. Plan something sexy and special so you can indulge in your hidden desires.

November 22nd - December 21st

Amorous Venus lights up your dating sector with its seductive magic starting April 5th, so if you’re looking to attract a date or craving extra attention from a partner, now’s the time to work your charm! The eclipse a few days later waves its wand of destiny over your love life, so stay open to change. Just beware of missed connections or misinterpretations, as Mercury is retrograding at the same time! The full moon on April 23rd is the perfect time to charge up your emotional batteries and your vibrator, so prioritize your needs—whether that’s space, rest, or pleasure.


December 22nd - January 19th

Lounging at home in lingerie may sound a bit more appealing than gallivanting around town throughout the beginning of the month—especially under the intense vibes of the eclipse on April 8th. Treat yourself to some lowkey bonding time with your lover or send some flirty texts to your crush from the comfort of your couch. You’ll be glad you took it easy, because the latter half of the month will be packed with romantic action. Look out for an unexpected date invite, and stay open to exciting twists and turns in existing relationships. Change can be sexy.

Don’t be shy about sharing what’s on your mind—your lovers want to know what you’re thinking! That said, Mercury retrograde is mixing up some communication signals, so double check your texts to be sure you’re not sending a racy pic to the wrong person or getting the details of a date wrong. Feelings flow under the full moon on April 23rd, so the last stretch of April is best suited for cuddly at-home date nights or some sensual solo self-care.


February 19th - March 19th
