Each Zodiac Sign's 2024 Love Horoscope Makes Romance A Priority
Lurv is in the air *and* in the stars ✨
Romance took a major hit in 2023. Even before Venus retrograde seemingly targeted basically every celeb couple — leading to what’s not-so-lovingly referred to as the “summer of breakups” — longtime lovers like Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn and Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott couldn’t make their relationships work.
Fortunately, your 2024 love horoscope is not only sans a season of splits, but it includes two eclipses in the partnership-oriented sign of Libra, plus a rare Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Taurus. In other words, your love life is in for a major upgrade in the year ahead.
2024 In Astrology: Love Edition
According to the cosmos, Venus is the primary planet responsible for all things love and relationships, which means that her trajectory across the stars plays a significant role in the development of your romantic affairs.
In 2024, the goddess of love will be connecting with a series of planets — most notably, Jupiter, the planet of growth, optimism, and expansion on May 23. The last time Venus conjoined lucky Jupiter in her home sign of Taurus was March 13, 2012, making this a rare alignment between the two most beneficial planets in astrology. This conjunction signifies the start of long-lasting relationships that are fruitful and worthwhile, so be sure to plan all of your first dates or hard launches on this day.
The North and South Node will also be continuing through Aries and Libra in 2024, marking where the eclipses will take place. This axis represents the need to balance the need for independence and autonomy versus the desire for partnership and socialization. When these eclipses take place, there will be a sudden call for recalibrating your relationship not only with others, but with yourself as well.
Below, you’ll see what the stars have in store for your love life in 2024, according to your zodiac sign.
Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 - April 19)
It’s a big relationship year for you, Aries. Starting on March 25, your romances will be front and center, with the Libra lunar eclipse in your seventh house. This cosmic event will bring your most intimate connections with others into sharp focus, asking that you find a way to balance who you are to others, versus the person you are when flying solo.
Expressing your desire for affection and intimacy will get easier once Venus shifts into your first house of self-expression on April 5. You’ll be focused on amplifying the love you have for yourself, making it easier to gain the attention of potential special someones actually worthy of your time.
By Oct. 2, the Libra solar eclipse sets the entirety of your focus on present partnerships, reminding you not to over-rely on the presence of another person. Learning how to lean into your connections is necessary, Aries, but they shouldn’t interfere with your solo endeavors.
You’ll be reevaluating your love life starting on Dec. 6, as Mars, your chart ruler, stations retrograde in passionate Leo. Loving others out loud is your way of expressing your appreciation, but it’s important that the people you’re investing in can reciprocate this energy. If not, it’s time to channel that love into your own creative pursuits and hobbies.
Taurus Zodiac Signs (April 19 - May 21)
You’ve always been one to prioritize love, Taurus, and this year’s no different. The full moon in Virgo on Feb. 24 sheds light on your desire for stable and reliable lovers, inspiring you to look at potential SOs through a logical lens. Though these romantic flings may be short-lived, they still need to make sense to you, or else they’re a waste of time.
Your long-term relationships may reach a turning point during the full moon in Scorpio on April 23, as you’ll be craving connections that allow you to be vulnerable.
Fortunately, as Venus, your chart ruler, conjoins Jupiter by May 23, the doubts and fears you’ve had in relationships will subside, filling you with optimism about what the future holds. You’ll finally feel validated by the people around you that have proven that they can be trusted.
As the fall season comes around, the Virgo new moon on Sept. 2 allows you to pursue a new love that prioritizes your desire for dependability. Though any new relationships may not be without their flaws, they are still serving you in a productive way.
By Nov. 1, the new moon in Scorpio invites deep, intimate romance into your world. With the short-term love affairs in the rearview, you’ll be setting your sights on a partner who can stand the test of time.
Gemini Zodiac Signs (May 21 - June 22)
2023 may have ended on a uncertain note, but as Mercury, your chart ruler, stations direct in Sagittarius on Jan. 1, you’ll finally gain some clarity in your love life.
This energy will reach its peak during the Libra lunar eclipse on March 25, encouraging you to flirt, mingle, and put yourself out there. You’ll be called to surround yourself with people that can reciprocate your energy, and it’ll be easier to see which connections have been throwing you off balance.
By Sept. 30, the sun and Mercury in Libra connect in your fifth house of creative pursuits and passions, bringing increased understanding and awareness regarding what you’re looking for in romantic partners. It’ll be easy for you to articulate your desires, but be sure that they’re not fleeting emotions.
The Libra solar eclipse on Oct. 2 marks the start of a fun new fling, offering opportunities for creative inspiration — but by Nov. 25, you’ll be reevaluating your role in the lives of other people as Mercury stations retrograde in Sagittarius once again. If you’ve been dissatisfied with where a potential situationship is heading, this will be the time to chat things through.
Fortunately, the Sagittarius new moon on Dec. 1 offers an optimistic glimpse at what your romantic life could look like. Do you see a future with your special someone? If so, it may be time to set some plans in motion. The downside: You may not see them actualize until Mercury stations direct on Dec. 15.
Cancer Zodiac Signs (June 22 - July 20)

Fortunately, by June 21, the Capricorn full moon brings your desire for structure and security in love into sharp focus. Though playing the field is fun, stability in your romances is much more your speed. This same Capricorn full moon comes around once more on July 21 — a rarity that signifies an important romantic aha moment for you. Are you currently seeing someone that appears to be the real deal? If so, it might be time to lock it down.
The fourth and final Capricorn lunation unfolds on Dec. 30, offering a chance to turn over a new leaf in love.
