Your daily love horoscope for May 18, 2023

It’s the final stretch to the weekend, besties. What’s in store for us from the cosmos?

Pretty harmonious aspects within the celestial motions barring a few sprinkles of tension here and there, here they are as follows: The Sun in Taurus forms a sextile with Neptune in Pisces, so if you’re feeling more inspired, more creative, and more sensitive, it’s this transit working double time for you. You might also have more empathy for the world today, softer, more caring. You might have more patience in dealing with your relationships.

The Moon in Taurus also forms a very tender sextile with Venus in Cancer, this transit might make you yearn for love and sweetness. Inspired vulnerability is in the cards, bestie. Will you play this hand?

Another sextile from Mercury in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces, this transit could be harmonious depending on you since it’s going to push us to make changes in our lives; and change is a case-to-case basis thing. Though it’s best to leave the action for another day lest impulse leads to regret. That’s the Moon conjunction Uranus in Taurus waving hello, by the way.

Alright, finally, let’s move into the love forecast:


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Is it a good day for love, Aries? The cosmos says: Slow down, dear, and take a second look. Have you let love pass you by already? Are you still looking for it in a very specific way? Perhaps you’ve been chasing and clamoring over a love that you think you should want and not one you need. Be more present, Aries, and look closely. Everything, not just love, might be closer than you think.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Is it a good day for love, Taurus? The cosmos says: You can be more than what people box you into, Taurus. It’s a day of confident self-expression, bestie, and going after what you want. Want to tell someone you like them? Consider today! Want to send a corny text to your partner but it seems out of character for you? Then be out of character! You are more than one thing, Taurus, you’re allowed to be.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Is it a good day for love, fellow Gem? The cosmos says: Take the helm, fellow Gems. The boat isn’t going to move unless you do. So move with purpose, bestie. Potential relationships? Make the first move. Problems in a relationship? Acknowledge the problem and start the conversation. Want a commitment? Ask for it. Start the conversation, Gem, go for it.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Is it a good day for love, Cancer? The cosmos says: There’s a craving in you that demands attention, a craving for a love so true, so real, and so for you. And that’s more than fine. You want possibilities, you want to be proven right that love can exist for you. And not just any love, but the kind of love they write songs about.


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Is it a good day for love, Leo? The cosmos says: Stand tall, Leo, and believe in your decisions. If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been making one wrong decision after another (in all departments), trust that you’re where you’re supposed to be. Rejection is redirection, bestie. If you need time to stew in your feelings, that’s alright. Give yourself time to process your emotions to come out stronger on the other end.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Is it a good day for love, Virgo? The cosmos says: If you allow yourself to look beyond what’s immediate, you’d be surprised. If you look at your life in a very limiting light, then you’re really boxing yourself in that view. That’s unfair to you. So while you’re feeling very receptive to the idea of “more”, put yourself out there. Meet new people, see new places, experience new things. Surprise yourself, Virgo.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Is it a good day for love, Libra? The cosmos says: If your gut tells you to dive, Libra, then dive. You can’t always play it safe in love, bestie, there are always a few risks involved in falling (in love). This doesn’t apply to everything, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes doing it scared is doing it bravely. Seek the possibilities, Libra. The first step is almost always the scariest, march.


Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Is it a good day for love, Scorpio? The cosmos says: Where’s the disconnect coming from, Scorpio? Is there discontent brewing in your bones? You know what they say, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” so find where the smoke leads. You’re a fiery and passionate soul to begin with but perhaps you’ve been putting the spark where it’s underappreciated. Don’t settle, Scorpio, there is more to be had.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Is it a good day for love, Sagittarius? The cosmos says: Cut yourself some slack, Sagittarius. You don’t always have to go fast, fast, fast after what you want. You can take your time to do so, enjoy the scenery if you will. Also, it’s okay to change your mind over things you thought you wanted. Sometimes, the journey changes us to the point of changing the destination, too. Again, enjoy the scenery just the same. Slow down, bestie. Take your sweet time.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Is it a good day for love, Capricorn? The cosmos says: Are you looking for love or is love looking for you, Capricorn? Maybe both. Today is a cosmically good day to shoot your shot. It could also be a cosmically good day to reevaluate love’s position in your life. Are you giving it the attention it deserves? Are you being intentional? Is love exactly how you thought it to be? If not, where did it fall short? Better yet, what are you gonna do about it?


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Is it a good day for love, Aquarius? The cosmos says: Onward and upward, Aquarius, but also, inward. Growth is not just to expand, it is also to go deeper. Settle roots, grow via depth, and build a foundation that can withstand storms. Embrace stability, bestie, embrace the comfort of sureness. And if that stability comes from self-love first before anyone else, then isn’t that nice?


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Is it a good day for love, Pisces? The cosmos says: It only depends on your willingness to ask. How will you know if you don’t? How will they know if you don’t tell them? Just constantly assuming the worst of things will lead you to feel like nothing ever works out. Well, nothing works out because nothing starts. So ask, Pisces, express exactly what it is you desire and you just might get it.
