This week your love horoscope for May 2 through May 8, 2022 begins the wild ride of entering the eclipse portal between lunar events which is known for unexpected and incredible events to take place.  

So no matter what your zodiac sign is, suspend your beliefs about how you think things will play out in your relationships because what will end up happening will be far better.  

Eclipses are how the universe can work its magick.  

The first eclipse of the year occurred on April 30th, a Black New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus.  

This represents the second New Moon within the same month and an eclipse that is all about external changes in your life.  

Taurus is one of the ruling zodiac signs of Venus so matters of the heart are remarkably close to the surface here.  

The eclipse portal is active from April 30th until May 16th when the second eclipse, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio will take place.  

During this period, it is best to let go of how you think anything will go which includes those preconceived storylines that you often live your life by.  

Eclipses have a way of shaking everything up and depositing you exactly where you need to be.

It is amazing what happens when you stop letting things get in the way of what it is your heart truly wants.  

What days to pay close attention to because of how they affect each zodiac sign’s love horoscope all week.

Monday, May 2, 2022 

Today Venus enters the fire sign of Aries dramatically changing how you love and even go after whom you care about. Venus in Aries is extremely determined and motivated.

No challenge is too great or obstacle too big. In this placement, love and achieving your desires for a relationship become heightened to the point that success is guaranteed.

This also can bring more impatience to having to wait for things to fall together naturally so it is a time that more action is taken.

It can lend that feeling of now or never to some scenarios which can help propel you forward towards what it is you truly dream of. Jupiter in Pisces also unites with Pluto in Capricorn today and will be in effect for the rest of the week.

This brings in a wave of feeling very much centered in your own personal power which lets you undertake changes that are for the betterment of you and all those involved.

Together these two energies create a week ahead of intense determination knowing that to receive what is meant for you, you sometimes need to be the one to go after it.  

Sunday, May 8, 2022  

The First Quarter Moon Occurs today in the sign of Leo. First Quarter Moons are a time of strength and harnessing your yang energy which governs action. With the Moon in Leo, you will be focusing more on your own personal needs.

This will have you believing that you are deserving of your wildest dreams coming true and that you are worthy of having your needs met. Nothing is too fantastic or farfetched under this Moon.

It is just a matter of putting it into action to create it. While First Quarter Moons are powerful on their own because this one occurs within the eclipse portal, it is intensified and can help play a part in fated events unfolding.
