Your love horoscope for the week of May 8 to 14 says you shouldn’t let your guard down just yet! There’s still enough suspicious energy in the air on Monday to stay focused and alert until you feel things start to turn around in your relationships by the end of the week.
These shifts should actually begin with Tuesday’s conjunction in steady Taurus between the confident and empowering sun as well as innovative and rebellious Uranus, allowing you to finally breathe a sigh of relief. Once that brain fog starts to lift, you should see things more clearly. And when that happens your confidence level rises, putting you back in a positive frame of mind.
Your mood should remain fairly upbeat heading into the weekend, as Friday brings two positive aspects: a sextile between quick-thinking Mercury (which continues its retrograde until May 14) and go-getter Saturn—planet of discipline—plus a trine between Venus—planet of love and friendship—and Saturn—planet of stability—bringing a sexy combo of business smarts and romantic intrigue. Hmmm… anyone up for mixing a little business and pleasure? One thing’s for sure: With last week’s erratic energy finally gone, it’s nice to have your life—and your relationships—back on track.
Here’s what your love horoscope for the week of May 8 to 14 is bringing to your attention, according to your sun sign, Venus sign and/or rising sign:
It’s money over love early this week, Aries, as the sun in reliable Taurus continues to highlight your financial zone. Making sure you’re financially secure before heading into a serious long-term relationship is a good idea. You don’t always think ahead, but you see the value of it during this slow-paced transit.
The stable Bull also hosts a sun-Uranus conjunction on Tuesday, again encouraging you to look toward the future. Investing in real estate or other long-term opportunities shows that you don’t just make spontaneous decisions, which is attractive to other signs, especially Virgo and Capricorn.
A lot of emotions come pouring out during Saturday’s Venus-Saturn water trine, and once they start you might not be able to stop them. Luckily, when it comes to love, being vulnerable isn’t a weakness.
The egocentric sun is traveling through money guru Taurus and your second house of finances and material possessions this week, making this the perfect time to get your money under control. If you and your partner have joint accounts, put reasonable budgets in place to advance your future savings.
On Tuesday, there’s a logical conjunction between the sun and Uranus, also in your money zone, that underscores the importance of looking at long-term investments that will benefit your relationship. Thinking creatively is encouraged, but looking for quick financial opportunities or fixes is not.
On Saturday, things turn romantic during a dreamy Venus-Saturn water trine that has you looking on the bright side. What were you so worried about, Aries? Your intuitive instincts are reassuring.
You’re not interested in any drama this week. As your steady sign influences more than a couple planetary placements, including the sun, you’re attracted to stability and down-to-earth people who use common sense. Other earth signs are a perfect match, mainly Virgo.
Tuesday’s sun-Uranus conjunction in your first house emphasizes your desire to not rock the boat, although your mind is more open than usual. You can see the possibilities that come from changing things up, but you’re not quite ready to get out of your comfortable dating routine just yet.
Mercury is currently retrograde in your stubborn sign, so when it sextiles serious Saturn on Friday you could get into some epic verbal clashes. If a conversation with someone you really like starts to go sideways, bail before it gets so bad you can’t recover from it. Once you say something negative, Taurus, it’s impossible to take it back.
The planets align for you this week, Taurus, with a lot of placements revolving around your reliable, logical sign. The ego-boosting sun has you feeling comfortable and in your element all week, which helps you be a more confident lover and partner.
On Tuesday, a conjunction takes place in your steady first house between the sun and innovative Uranus, encouraging you to branch out a little bit, especially when it comes to your image. How long has it been since you changed up your style? Let bae help you make some changes, within reason of course.
On Friday, Mercury (currently retrograde in your grounded sign) sextiles serious Saturn, giving you the heads-up on any legal documents or relationship-related papers you have to sign. Be sure to read them very carefully or have them looked at by a lawyer to make sure you don’t sign something you shouldn’t.
If you sense certain things this week, Gemini, pay attention to your instincts. As romantic Venus wades through the deep emotional waters of Cancer, your psychic abilities also increase, giving you an advantage when it comes to reading people.
On Tuesday, a close sun-Uranus meetup in conservative earthy Taurus signals caution ahead. Don’t be too quick to jump into a new relationship now, no matter how tempting it is. Moving at a fast pace is exciting, but it also causes a lot more emotional crashes than taking your time does.
Over the weekend the Universe provides an intense Venus-Saturn trine that shows you what life could be like if all your dreams came true. Are you taking steps to turn your fantasies into reality? Because that’s possible now. The harder you work, the more results you see. Sometimes you forget what you’re truly capable of.
Love planet Venus is spending time in needy Cancer this week, making you crave a lot more affection than usual. Even though bae might secretly wonder why you want to hold their hand and cuddle so much, they aren’t complaining!
The sun-Uranus conjunction that occurs in patient Taurus and your twelfth house of endings on Tuesday is an indication of changes that are coming, but you should have plenty of time to prepare for them. Nothing stays the same, Gemini, especially if you’ve been together for a long time, and this aspect is a good signal that you’re headed in the right direction.
Heading into the weekend, the Universe provides a romantic Venus-Saturn water trine on Saturday that encourages you to talk about and pursue your dreams.

You have high expectations of a date developing into a relationship thanks to the Venus-Saturn trine on Saturday, but if you’re disappointed, you aren’t likely to let it show.

The stubborn Bull also hosts the sun-Uranus conjunction on Tuesday, urging you to stick to your ideas and opinions.

Maybe check the rules before grabbing that coffee with a coworker.
On Friday, there’s a Mercury-Saturn sextile while Mercury is retrograde that can put you in a good position to persuade someone to your way of thinking, but that doesn’t really work in a dating situation. Don’t you want to get to know someone for who they really are? Just finding ways to get them to say yes doesn’t allow you to do that.
With your confident leader sun moving through steady, logical Taurus this week, you’re very sure of yourself and your decisions. You might even say you’re more stubborn than usual, especially when it comes to your ego and insistence on being right. Isn’t love supposed to be a two-way street, Leo?
An earthy sun-Uranus conjunction in Taurus arrives on Tuesday, highlighting your tenth house of public recognition and career.

As the sun continues to travel with kindred earth sign Taurus this week, you’re confident in what you bring to the table. You might not be everybody’s type, Virgo, but the perfect person for you does exist out there somewhere. And you have the patience not to settle until you find them.
Money decisions are pretty easy to make during Tuesday’s sun-Uranus conjunction in financially savvy Taurus, so it isn’t like you’ll let anyone take advantage of you. You can spot a gold digger a mile away, and if that’s all someone is interested in, they can keep moving.

The sun-Uranus conjunction in financially savvy Taurus on Tuesday urges you to use a little more creativity when making decisions about your joint holdings, but you will still probably err on the side of caution. When it comes to your hard-earned money, you aren’t ready to make any out-there moves.
Romance is present again during Saturday’s Venus-Saturn trine in water signs Cancer and Pisces, respectively, which should put you in the mood to dream about the future. You’re ready to talk about things in more abstract terms during this dreamy, emotional aspect.
You’re a little more shy than usual as your lovely leader Venus makes her way through introverted Cancer this week, so you probably won’t be making the first move. You’re still quite flirty, but when it comes to closing the deal, you prefer to be pursued rather than do the pursuing.
Your dark eighth house of sex and death (endings) gets a visit from a rebellious sun-Uranus conjunction on Tuesday, which gives you a chance to totally revamp your sexual style.

On Saturday, there’s an intense Venus-Saturn water trine that urges you to follow your emotions no matter where they lead. You’ll no doubt run into some obstacles along the way, but just because something’s difficult doesn’t mean it isn’t meant to be. Keep going. Don’t give up.
Your loving leader Venus is spending the week with caring Cancer, which makes you want to nurture and take care of bae. Your constant “just saying hi” texts and desire to cuddle 24/7 might be a little too much, though. Use that balance you’re so good at finding.
A sun-Uranus meetup in sturdy Taurus on Tuesday hits your renewal zone, letting you know that it’s time to make some changes. There’s no urgency, Libra, but start thinking about what you can do to bring a little more excitement to the relationship. Waiting until things go stale is a mistake.
There are some good romantic vibrations during the Venus-Saturn trine on Saturday, and the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. That might seem obvious, but if you’ve stopped making the effort lately (and we all do at some point), you probably need this little reminder.

All of the nice things you’ve done anonymously for your crush could be revealed during Saturday’s Venus-Saturn trine, which could actually be really embarrassing.

The work you’ve been putting into the relationship gets recognized during Saturday’s Venus-Saturn trine, which is actually pretty nice. You don’t do what you do to get a thank-you, but when your partner notices something special you’ve done and compliments you, it makes it all worthwhile.

Early in the week, the sun-Uranus conjunction in money guru Taurus and your fifth house of fun shows that you can still ball out on a budget!

If the two of you have something you have to do that you’re not looking forward to, be sure to plan something fun afterward so you can focus more on “want to” and less on “have to.”
This week is a good time to remember that regenerative Pluto is in your powerful first house, which means some pretty intense transformations should be taking place.

On Friday, the Universe produces a talkative Mercury-Saturn sextile while Mercury is still retrograde, which can take away a little bit of its effectiveness.
