Get ready for a new week (Picture: Getty / metro.co.uk)
This Monday, Venus moves into the sign of Aries.
Plus, today – Sunday May 1, 2022 – is Beltane, the pagan and Wiccan festival celebrating the height of spring and the early days of summer.
Together, these two cosmic calendar events make for a very passionate, romantic, and emotional week ahead.
It’s time to be bold, confident, and hopeful about your love life. It’s time to ask them out, make a proposal, turn up the heat, go to the next level.
Whatever your aspirations in love, this is a great week to put effort into making them come true.
Let your tarot horoscope advise what wonderful energy could flow into your star sign’s love life this week…

Taurus, you’re keeping it chill this week (Picture: Getty
Tarot card for Taurus for this week: Four of Swords
Meaning: You just want to chill out. You want things to be quiet, calm, easy and peaceful. You want to spend your time together being low-key and relaxed, pottering, tootling about doing very little, but being happy with that. You want them to get on your speed.
Single Taureans are ready for a laidback Air sign – Gemini, Libra or Aquarius. Right now, you’re feeling like you want something easy and free-flowing. No pressure or demands.

Cut off that weight bringing you down (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)
Tarot card for Gemini for this week: Ten of Swords
Meaning: You’re ready to cut ties. The Ten of Swords is a tough card about severing bonds with something that has weighed you down, held you back, or hurt you.
It’s always the right thing to do, so don’t hesitate. Sometimes, in order to heal or improve our love life, we have to cut away the dead wood or dead weight.
That might not be a whole relationship, it might be one aspect of it. Or it might be something about your own self-limiting beliefs or behaviours that you’ve had enough of. Do it and feel better.

Make your demands, say what you want, ask them out, propose, do what’s on your mind. It will all be well received and you’ll discover your partner is as into it as you are.
If you’re single, then a fellow Water sign (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio) is crushing on you and ready to make a move. Smile and encourage them.

The Two of Swords asks you politely to stop the hedging and procrastinating and commit to the person or course of action you’ve been pondering on. Make a decision and act on it. Now.
As soon as you do, everything will flow again. You’re just snagged on a hook, and it’s getting uncomfy. Lift yourself off with the guidance of a firm choice and all will be better.

Do it, Virgo. This is a major turning point.
Actively, consciously seek to change who you speak to, how, what you expect, what you demand, what you do and how you do it. See this as a fascinating experiment!
