Everything you need to know about the year’s incoming crushes, breakups and hookups, from astrologer Kimberly Peta Dewhirst of Star Sign Style.
March 21—April 19
If you’re single: What a fun time to be unattached! Dating will feel exciting this year — thanks to a surplus of hotties clamoring for your attention. Once Jupiter moves into Scorpio on October 11, your heart will open up to the idea of falling in lurrrrve, and a relationship might seem more appealing.
If you’re in a relationship: This is the year to take a magnifying glass to your relationship and give it a thorough assessment. Not having a blast? You’ll have the courage to make your feelings known — and break things off if the situation doesn’t improve. On the other hand, if you and your bae hit October 11 feeling strong, you’ll spend the rest of 2017 more committed than ever.
Your luckiest time of the year: February 4–June 5
Your most compatible signs: Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Your least compatible signs: Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces
April 20—May 21
If you’re single: For the past two years, you’ve been reflecting on your life in a major way, really figuring out who you are. In 2017, you’ll put all that introspection to good use. Anyone you meet this year will have to pass a test before you let them into your heart. Do they make you happy? Do they share your values? Bring out the best in you? If so, green light, pass go, collect $200 — you’ve met your match.
If you’re in a relationship: This is the year to look closely at your relationship and ask yourself if it’s lighting you up or dragging you down. Pay special attention when Venus goes retrograde from March 4 to April 15 — issues beyond your control could flare up in a difficult way. The road ahead might be rough, but you’re strong. Remember that.
Your luckiest time of the year: June 6—July 4
Your most compatible signs: Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio
Your least compatible signs: Leo, Aquarius, Aries
May 22—June 21
If you’re single: Whether you’re hoping to spend 2017 chilling solo or playing the field, you’re not in the mood for anyone‘s crap this year. You’re on your A-game, so there’s no need to settle for an immature flake. If you do come down with a case of the heart-eyes, they’re for someone who’s respectful, responsible and mature — a total “meet the family” type who happens to adore you completely.
If you’re in a relationship: Your love forecast: sunny with zero chance of breakups. Amaze! This is the year you’ll really dive into your relationship and find a ~whole new level~ of love. If you’ve wanted to team up with bae to tackle a joint project (like organizing the prom limo together or saving up $$$ for a summer road trip), the stars have your back. Enjoy the adventure!
Your luckiest time of the year: July 5–July 31
Your most compatible signs: Libra, Aquarius, Aries, Sagittarius
Your least compatible signs: Virgo, Pisces, Taurus
June 22—July 22
If you’re single: Feel that? That’s Pluto hanging out in Capricorn — astro-speak for lighting up your love life! If you want to be in a relationship, that can easily happen this year, especially in November. Just one type to watch out for: overbearing duds who drain your energy. Take the time and get to know someone before committing to a relationship; you deserve a bae who makes you feel inspired and unstoppable!
If you’re in a relationship: Since Pluto is lighting up your relationship sector by moving through Capricorn, the connection you have with bae is about to get intense. If you’ve been teetering on the edge of confessing the L-word, take a deep breath: 2017 will be a hugely magical year for you.
Your luckiest time of the year: August 1–August 25
Your most compatible signs: Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus
Your least compatible signs: Libra, Aries, Gemini
July 23—August 22
If you’re single: More than ever, 2017 is when you’ll get serious about love — whether it’s love for a person (will you finally tell your best friend about your feelings?) or passion for a personal goal (maybe you’ll start that website you’ve been dreaming up forever?). In any event, this is the year when what you want becomes what you have.
If you’re in a relationship: After spinning your wheels in a flirtationship — as in, something is definitely going on, just without any actual definition — you could see a real commitment this year. Exciiiiiting. Just note that early in 2017, Venus will go retrograde in your ninth house, which controls travel and education. If you’re hitting the books extra-hard or going abroad, you and bae might have to work through some issues. Come end of summer, though, you’re in the clear!
Your luckiest time of the year: August 26–September 19
Your most compatible signs: Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini
Your least compatible signs: Scorpio, Taurus, Cancer
August 23—September 23
If you’re single: Jupiter is stomping around in your second house this year, which means you might feel kinda blue about your love prospects. Try not to let it get to you — you’re amazing, and this tough time is only temporary. A summer fling could very well blossom into a solid relationship by October.
If you’re in a relationship: During September and October, you’ll feel like the heroine of a romance novel — swooooon! And if at any time during the year you’re facing trust issues, it’s important to take a step back and look at the situation with a critical eye. Do you really think bae’s acting shady? Or are those fears coming from a place of self-doubt? If it’s the latter, channel your energies into a money-making endeavor — your bank account will be booming in 2017.
Your luckiest time of the year: September 20–October 13
