Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of May 12

Your love life certainly won’t be boring this week. On Sunday, Venus will oppose Mars, still traveling retrograde in partnership-oriented Libra. This will make it difficult, if not outright impossible, to get what you want in love or from a lover. Compromise doesn’t seem to be a word in either one of your vocabularies. The result? Frustration! Then, on Wednesday, Venus squares off with Pluto, promising angst and power struggles. You might fight for the upper hand in your relationship, but tactics that involve manipulation or coercion will only cause more trouble. The good news is that on Thursday you might make a sudden change altogether when it comes to love. Venus and Uranus will connect in fiery Aries. You’ll feel motivated to try something new in your love life. This might be the breath of fresh air you both need!
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

No matter how hard you try, it appears your love life will be filled with frustration this week. You might feel increasing disappointment in the state of your relationship, and yet you may have no idea how to make things right. It appears that the more you attempt to wield control over your lover, the more he or she pushes you away. Allow this to be a sign. Maybe you just need to let go.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

If you’ve been caught up in a secret office romance lately, things might take an ugly turn this week. You might learn that a coworker has discovered the affair and attempts to manipulate you or your lover. It appears that he or she has deemed your relationship against office policy, and threatens to cause trouble by raising ethical considerations to higher ups. The interesting twist is that this person might actually have a crush on either you or your sweetheart and is simply acting out of jealousy. If married, an emotional turning point is likely.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Mounting sexual frustration between you and your lover might reach a pinnacle. You might consider ending the relationship altogether, because it appears neither one of you can figure out how to work this out. If you love each other enough, however, there is hope. Consider enlisting the help of a qualified sex therapist and attend couples counseling. Another possibility is that you’ve been trying in vain to have a child. Again, seek the counsel of an expert. A breakthrough is possible.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your career pursuits might be taking your attention away from romance. On Wednesday, however, your partner might give you an ultimatum and force you to prioritize things. How important is your relationship? If you value it as much as your career, then it’s time to make a change. It won’t be easy, but it’s not impossible. Consider a discreet conversation with your boss on Thursday. Ask him or her for a couple of personal days and surprise your partner. You can use the time together.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might not have an easy time communicating about private matters on Sunday. Keep important conversations with your lover on hold until Monday or Thursday, when there’s more cosmic support in this area for you. In addition, if you hope to initiate dialogue with a new acquaintance or a friend you have romantic interest in, wait until Thursday. You’re more likely to discover that the feeling is mutual.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Love, sex, money and power are major themes for you this week. However, none of these areas are likely to be comfortable. If attached, on Sunday you and your partner might be at odds when it comes to how you’d like to handle shared resources. Then, on Wednesday, you and a new sweetheart might wonder if you’re ready to become intimate on both a physical and emotional level. While you crave the connection, something about the timing may be off. On Thursday, you might discover an unexpected reason for why it’s worth the wait.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re not exactly cruising on easy street these days when it comes to relationships. Unfortunately, this week it appears it’s more of the same. On Sunday, you and your partner might reach an impasse over a situation that makes you wonder if it’s even possible to make one another happy any longer. On Wednesday, a domestic dispute between you and your mate is a lose/lose situation for everyone. On Thursday, however, there’s one glimmer of hope: You’re willing to give each other a bit of breathing room to figure things out. Hang in there!

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

There might be extra confusion early in the week if you try to talk to a lover about an intimate matter. You might even discover that your sweetheart is withholding information, and if so this will puzzle you even more. Before you jump to conclusions about any possible betrayal, however, realize that he or she might be doing this more out of self-protection. Revealing oneself is never easy. Allow your love to do so in his or her time.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Love might not come easy these days. It seems as if there’s a price to pay — and you might not like it. On Sunday, you and your sweetie might argue about how to spend your social time together. Then, on Wednesday, the phrase “love don’t cost a thing” doesn’t appear to ring true for you. You might be paying a lot more than you bargained for to be in this current relationship. Whether the currency is money or otherwise, ask yourself: Is he or she really worth it?

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A revelation about your social life might lead you to make necessary changes that will help improve it. If single, this might be the key to meeting new people. Perhaps you’re spending too much time in the company of folks with a sober, pessimistic attitude. This grim social scene might be killing any potential for you to find someone appropriate to date. Change may not be easy, but one thing is certain: Love will not flourish in a suffocating environment. Change your atmosphere and open up romantic prospects.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might put your foot in your mouth early this week when you talk to your lover. It seems like no matter what you say, your perspective won’t be appreciated. In fairness, the reverse will be true, as well, and this will make it nearly impossible to engage in productive dialogue with your partner. If there’s anything vital the two of you need to discuss, wait until Thursday, when the energy will be much kinder.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your faith in your relationship might be tested if your lover reveals that he or she doesn’t agree with one of your most personal beliefs. Whether or not this is a deal-breaker can only be decided by you. Either way, this revelation will surely lead to a week of soul searching. By Thursday, communication will improve, and you might even reveal a sexy part of yourself to someone special that you previously kept to yourself.
