You asked for a passionate love affair and that’s exactly what you’re going to get. This Tuesday could be your big day. If not a proposal, then don’t be surprised if you and your S.O. take a major step towards building your life together. Not coupled up? With Cupid on your side, you’ll be introduced to potential marrying types in the most unlikely of places.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Let bygones be bygones, and then hit the town for a girls’ night out in celebration. As you clear the air with former roommates and maybe a nemesis from your past, don’t feel obligated to suddenly become BFFs. Along with patching up a friendship comes a stream of emotions that you may not be ready to deal with right now.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Start May off right with a spending freeze that could save you major moolah for down the road (like for an upcoming getaway!). Put it this way: If you can live without it, walk the other way before buyer’s remorse can set in. Find small shortcuts to saving money — such as packing your lunches and shopping your closet for a new look — and you’ll be racking up savings before you know it.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
With Jupiter finally waking up from its long retrograde, the coast is clear to launch a YouTube channel or unveil a fancy new website.

Say buh-bye to Big Macs and fries, and hello to a scrumptious kale smoothie.

Start small with some morning yoga and an acai bowl before working your way up to a half marathon in July.

Have passport, will travel is your new motto. Between visiting good friends in distant places and traveling for work-related conferences, May is already shaping up to be your most adventurous month yet.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
When the going gets tough, talks things out. Whether it’s between you and your boo or your bestie since day one, you can’t expect people to read your mind. No one’s psychic, Aquarius! Avoid any potential showdowns in front of your S.O.’s parents (or just in general) by making amends now rather than when it’s too late.
