Daily Love Horoscope: May 5, 2023 | Your Zodiac

The Moon moves into Scorpio today, besties. What are you letting go of?

Specifically, it’s a Scorpio Flower Moon Lunar Eclipse that’s happening. Flower Moon might sound cute, and technically it does signify the blooming of spring flowers, but this lunation is a painful (and necessary!) step towards healing. A culmination of sorts for the past 6 months. An ending necessary to begin a new chapter. This is a very simplistic explanation so I encourage you to look up how this will affect other facets of your life as I would only talk about matters of the heart here, as per usual.

We all have necessary burdens that we carry but today is prime time to reassess what we actually need and what we can leave by the door. What will you let go of? What will you take with you? What’s holding you back? Take this penumbral lunar eclipse as a signal to reflect.

With that said, let’s jump into the love forecasts:


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Is it a good day for love, Aries? Short answer: If you go slowly but surely, yes.

Long answer: Slow and steady wins the race, Aries, and today is a journey concerning your most intimate relationships. Or just your relationship with intimacy in general. This is not to say you need to weaponize intimacy to see who will stay, but there might be things that you’ve only been putting up with and it’s high time to be honest about it. You deserve a love that you’ll feel safe in.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Is it a good day for love, Taurus? Short answer: Could go both ways.

Long answer: Partnerships take center stage for you today, Taurus. And what I mean by it could go both ways is that realizations in relationships are a make-or-break type of deal—substantial ones usually are. So it’s either a big, life-changing commitment is on the table or a big breakup. Either way, you deserve a love that can withstand big life changes.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Is it a good day for love, Gemini? Short answer: With a few changes, yes.

Long answer: Time to look at how you’ve been treating love, fellow Gems, or better yet… how has love been treating you? Complacency in love can make us feel reckless and careless in how we treat our partners, take today as a signal to reevaluate what needs to change. You deserve a love that grows with you.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Is it a good day for love, Cancer? Short answer: Only if it makes your heart sing.

Long answer: Big feelings are overwhelming, I get it, but be prepared for it, Cancer. This lunation shines its light in your pleasure and creativity sectors and you might find yourself seeking it and rejecting any that doesn’t fit the mold. And you know what? That’s okay. You deserve love that makes you feel alive.


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Is it a good day for love, Leo? Short answer: If you let it.

Long answer: For one as energetic and playful as you, Leo, you might have craved love as loud as that. Today, however, as this flower moon shines its light on your domestic and nostalgic fourth, you might re-evaluate and hunger for a comfortable kind of love. A deeper, much closer kind of love. The kind of love you can rest your head against. If you’ve been running away from this, then stand still, Leo. Let it catch up. You deserve love that welcomes you home.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Is it a good day for love, Virgo? Short answer: If you say so.

Long answer: No, really, if you say so. Communication is important in any relationship—whether platonic or romantic—and today is a good day to take your stand. Make yourself heard, Virgo, but also learn to listen. Conflict resolution is possible today, but it could also blow up if you’re not careful. Love is a two-way street, a give-and-take dynamic. You deserve love that not only listens but also understands you.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Is it a good day for love, Libra? Short answer: Once you get your finances in order.

Long answer: Is this a boring answer? But it’s cosmically true, though. Money will prove to be a priority during this lunation. Your previous months’ work might find its pay-off today, Libra, be open to the idea of abundance. Know your worth, Libra, in all the ways this matters. You deserve love that isn’t just because.


Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Is it a good day for love, Scorpio? Short answer: Yes+++

Long answer: It’s literally your time to shine, Scorpio. Redefine what needs redefining, steer where you want to. The forks in the road are yours to explore, even the road less traveled will welcome you. This lunation in your sign has your back, Scorpio, you only need the guts to take full advantage of it. Fortune favors the bold and the brave, Scorpio. And even love can find its way into your arms if you seek it. And you deserve love that you are ready for.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Is it a good day for love, Sagittarius? Short answer: If you’re really ready.

Long answer: What dreams have you shelved, Sagittarius? What parts of you have you hidden to accommodate someone else? Today is a day of vulnerability, facing off what you think you’ve healed from, and being okay with the time it takes to move on. The only way out is through, Sagi, stop running. Healing your heart makes for a better love, doesn’t it? And you deserve a healthy kind of love.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Is it a good day for love, Capricorn? Short answer: Depends.

Long answer: Depends on the kind of connections you keep, Capricorn, especially single Capricorns. Connection, community, and collaboration are this lunation’s focus for you. Drama can ensue in your social groups and this begs the question: is this the kind of energy you’re partaking in? Keep those who have your best interests near to your heart, too. You deserve love that you have a deep connection with.


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Is it a good day for love, Aquarius? Short answer: Uhh, this one’s on you.

Long answer: Honestly, even my opinion shouldn’t matter right now, you decide how an outsider’s opinions affect your relationship. Reputation is this lunation’s focus for you. Also, rejection is redirection, keep this in your back pocket for when previous opportunities find an unfavorable outcome in the present. You’ll find your place, Aquarius. You deserve love and all its in-betweens.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Is it a good day for love, Pisces? Short answer: Go for it!

Long answer: Let your heart dictate where it wants to go, Pisces. It’s time to see what else could be in store for you, let bravery ring the loudest. Acknowledge past hurts and use them as building blocks to move forward. You are capable of much, much, much more than you think you do. The world is waiting, Pisces, and so is the love deserving of you.
