(March 21st to April 19th)
Single: You’ll learn that you’re allowed to take a break from dating altogether. You think the best way to meet your soulmate is to date EVERYONE but you’re just making yourself more confused about what you really want. May is the month for you to be on your own. Who knows maybe when you’re not trying to find your soulmate, they’ll somehow show up.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that it’s normal to question your relationship, especially if you’ve been in it for a very long time. There will be times throughout this month where you doubt the strength of your relationship, or whether or not this person is right for you. The best thing to do is to communicate with your partner. Be honest and let them know the doubts you’re having. When you talk to your partner about it, you’ll figure out that just because you’re having doubts doesn’t mean the relationship has to end.
(April 20th to May 21st)
Single: You’ll learn to accept real love when it’s given to you. Sometimes you refute love because you’re afraid of getting hurt, this month that changes. You become less afraid of love and more ready to embrace it. May will be the month when you realize love doesn’t have to be so scary.
In a relationship: You’ll learn to really appreciate your partner. They’re going to go out of their way to make you happy, and sometimes you won’t even notice. May is the month where you’ll truly begin to appreciate the effort they put into your relationship, and you’ll start to notice the small but very important ways they show their love.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Single: You’ll learn to not let all of the jerks you date make the potential of finding love feel hopeless. There are going to be some assholes who fool you into thinking they’re Prince Charming, but this month you’ll learn to not let that discourage you. You brush the jerks off and understand that it actually isn’t you, it’s them.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that rough patches can last longer than you’d like them to. May is going to face your relationship with some challenges, but you’ll learn that these hardships will eventually bring the two of you closer. All relationships have their ups and downs, but each of you will get through it together.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Single: You’re going to feel like you have so many other things to worry about right now than love, and you’re right. May you’ll learn to put love on the back burner, and you’ll learn that’s completely okay. Take some time to focus on yourself, sort out your own issues, and then when you feel ready, try putting yourself back out there. Don’t rush to heal, and take as much time as you need to solve your problems.
In a relationship: You’re going to learn how to truly lean on your partner for support. This month you’re going to need them more than ever, and hopefully they’ll be there for you. You like to be the one taking care of them, but this month you won’t be able to and you’ll need their help to take care of yourself. It’s okay to need your partner’s support, that’s what a lot of a relationship is all about.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Single: You’ll learn to give one person the majority of your attention rather than giving a handful of people an insufficient amount of it. You like to keep your options open, but when you date multiple people at one time, they all feel like they’re not getting the whole you, and it’s because they’re not (whether they’re aware of the fact that you’re dating other people or not). You’ll learn to settle down, not in a relationship, but in the dating world. You will be more attentive to other people’s feelings and how much effort you give in getting to know who they really are.
In a relationship: You’ll learn to balance your friendships and your relationship. Sometimes your friends feel like they no longer fit into your life because your relationship takes up the majority of it. In May you’ll begin to show them that balance is something you’re struggling with, but that you’re working on.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Single: You’ll learn to take chances in love. You’re not going to always know whether or not someone will break your heart, but this month you’ll begin to be more open into giving love a chance. You’ve met people you really like before, but you haven’t been able to really let them in. In May you’ll be sick of being guarded, you’re going to say screw it, and give love a fair fight.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that the more you fear your partner leaving, the more you self-sabotage your relationship. Don’t assume your partner doesn’t love you just because you’re overthinking. That’s where the self-sabotage begins. Judge your partner’s love by their actions and don’t overthink it so much. If they love you, they’ll show you, not just tell you. This month, you’ll realize maybe you’re trying to sabotage your relationship because you’re scared that you don’t deserve love, and you’ll learn that you do. You deserve love.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Single: You’ll learn to say yes more. You’ve been overly trusting in the past, and it’s made you shut people out because you’re worried they’ll break your heart, this month that changes. You stop shutting people out and you learn to just enjoy the moment for what it is. You embrace the attitude of nothing lost, nothing gained and you being to put yourself out there more.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that communication will solve a lot of your relationship’s problems. You’ve avoided confrontation for a very long time, but in May you learn to voice your concerns with your relationship, and it helps the two of you work through them. No more hiding your feelings or pretending like you’re happy when you’re not, this month you’re going to be real.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Single: You’ll learn that just because people don’t meet them, your standards are not too high. You’re wondering if you’re not in a relationship because you expect too much from people, you don’t. You know what you want and need and this month you will learn that you don’t need to settle until you find someone who’s willing to give you both.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that boring isn’t always a bad thing when it comes to relationships. The longer you’re together, the more you worry about your relationship becoming bland, but sometimes the boring moments prove just how strong your love actually is. If you can have fun picking out paint together, this person is pretty special.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Single: You’ll learn to stay in touch with the people you enjoy. You don’t stay in one place for very long, and it makes you think you have to say goodbye for good or completely cut ties. In May you learn that if you really like them, you can stay in touch, and one day see them again. You don’t have to say goodbye to the people you don’t want to. Stay in touch, reach out, and keep them in your life if you want them there.
In a relationship: You’ll learn what’s worth sacrificing for love, and what isn’t. Relationships are full of compromises, and you’re more willing to compromise on things you used to think were uncompromisable for the person you love. This month you’ll struggle with whether or not you’re compromising the right things, and by the end of the month you’ll figure it out.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Single: You’ll learn how to slowly dive back into the dating pool. You like to fill your time with things that aren’t love because you don’t consider it a priority. Sometimes you put dating on the back burner because you’re afraid of heartbreak (even if you won’t admit it). In May you’ll say to yourself, why not?
In a relationship: You’ll learn not to blow things out of proportion. This month you’re going to be stressed with other things than your relationship, so it will tempt you to overreact out of pure exhaustion. This month will teach you how to step back, calm down, and handle things without blowing up.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Single: You’ll learn to not put so much pressure on yourself to find love. You feel like you’ve been alone for a long time and the longer it gets the harder you try to find it. This month you learn that love isn’t something you need to search desperately for. This month you stop trying so hard and learn to just live your life and let love happen.
In a relationship: You’ll learn to not put your partner up on a pedestal. You love your partner, that’s very clear, but they can make mistakes, and they eventually will. Just because you think your partner is perfect, doesn’t mean they are. We all have our weaknesses, and this month you’ll learn your partner has them. May will teach you that we all make mistakes, especially in relationships.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Single: You’ll learn that not everyone you date will respond to your feelings the way you want them to. You’re sensitive and not afraid to show it, but there will be some people you date who just don’t know how to handle that. It doesn’t mean your sensitivity is a bad thing, it just means you haven’t met the person who appreciates it rather than runs away from it.
In a relationship: You’ll learn that if your partner truly loves you, they won’t run away when you’re vulnerable. This month you feel extremely emotional and you’re not exactly sure why, but it’s happening. Your sensitivity is definitely accentuated in May , and you’ll learn that your partner is more accepting of it than you anticipated. Real love doesn’t run away from feelings, it thrives on them.
