May 2019 Monthly Love Horoscope


photoAre You Taking Your Relationships for Granted?

An important crisis time for all relationships, both romantic and platonic, centers around the period between 7th and 9th May, but there’s no need for major alarm. Because the root meaning of the word ‘crisis’ is actually ‘turning point’ this isn’t quite as dire as it might first seem. 

For sure, we may all have to face up to the reality that all isn’t as well as we would like it to be between ourselves and someone dear to us. But out of this sobering realization will spring a desire to discover the root cause of the problem, accompanied by a confident belief in our ability to turn things around.

It all kicks off when Saturn, the planet of responsibility, squares up to Venus, the planet of love on May 7th. If we’re feeling more than usually alone and uncared for, as often happens under this astrological transit, our first instinct will probably be to blame the other person for our miseries. But where Saturn is concerned this is a big mistake since it only makes us even unhappier in the long run. 

If we’re willing to work constructively with the energy of Saturn, we always have to look at our own role in creating the present situation – and in this case we may have to admit that we’ve been taking a certain person for granted and failing to put enough effort into our relationship with them. 

If you’ve been neglecting someone important in your life by forgetting to tell them how much you love and appreciate them, or by not making enough time for them, now is the time to take responsibility and make a fresh start. 

Don’t be scared to have a challenging, but ultimately healing, conversation about the whys and wherefores of what has gone wrong. Pluto, the cosmic detective, and lucky Jupiter both move into alignment with Venus on May 9th, helping you to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem, while promising to bring about a happy ending!
