    WHERE SHOULD YOU SNUGGLE UP WITH A SAGITTARIUS?

    This globetrotting sign is going to want to feel like they're in a different country on their date.

    With things still up in the air regarding international travel why not pick an exotic restaurant or foreign film to watch.

    Capricorn meanwhile likes a traditional date and will thank you for booking a tried and tested restaurant whose food speaks for itself.

    That said, they're incredibly hard workers so might also fancy a weekend relaxing at a spa.

    IF YOU'RE ARRANGING A DATE WITH LIBRA, HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

    Air sign Libra is known for their excellent taste and often looks like they've just stepped out of a fashion editorial.

    An art gallery or fashion show followed by dinner at a decadently designed restaurant would make the perfect balance.

    Sultry Scorpio meanwhile loves the night life and following the clues until the secrets are revealed.

    A murder mystery weekend of treasure hunt would be a great shout as long as you're prepared for the water sign to win.

    GOING ON A DATE WITH LEO? REMEMBER THEY LOVE THE LIMELIGHT

    If you're going on a date with a Leo just remember they adore the spotlight.

    We're thinking either that new restaurant that's just opened which has the best backdrops for the gram, or a karaoke bar. Every Leo has a Cher track in their repertoire.

    If you're dating perfection queen Virgo, it might be a good idea to have a few choices up your sleeve.

    You're going to want to go somewhere where they can show off their skills, so maybe something like a pottery class or bowling. They won't rest until they get their strike.

    DREAM DATES FOR GEMINI AND CANCER

    Gemini

    This talkative sign needs to be stimulated on a date which will give them plenty of things to discuss afterwards.

    A drive-in movie would be a great shout giving the social butterfly ample opportunity to exercise their gift of the gab.

    Cancer

    Sensitive and romantic Cancer likes to feel all the feels on their date.

    What about a home-cooked meal with candles and Netflix followed by a game of Twister? The crafty crab is sure to get in all sorts of positions.

    PERFECT DATES ACCORDING TO YOUR STAR SIGN AS LOCKDOWN RULES LIFT ON MAY 17

    Aries

    Outgoing Aries is certainly no wallflower so this date needs to be active to give them a chance to show off all their moves.

    A dance class would be a great idea, particularly a sexy salsa lesson for two.

    Taurus

    Earth sign Taurus is ruled by their stomach so this date should revolve around food.

    Check out the latest pop up restaurant offering a cuisine you've never tired or maybe explore a food market such as the new Italian extravaganza in London.

    DATE WITH DESTINY

    Happy Wednesday!

    Well, dear friends, the time has almost come for us to slip on our sandals and gaze into bae's eyes without the lashing rain betraying our fake tan.

    As we get ready for some long-awaited freedom we thought we'd take a look at the perfect dates according to our star signs and if you think we're even considering a Zoom call, think again!

    WHAT VENUS MOVING INTO GEMINI MEANS FOR YOUR SIGN

    The Planet of love Venus is moving into the sign of Gemini from May 8 to June 2, so expected to feel all the feels when it comes to love and relationships.

    Here's what's in store for your sign while Venus is in transit.

    Aries – Ask for what you want in love during this period, be true and transparent and you won't go wrong.

    Taurus – This transit is giving you the gift of the gab and asking you to be a lot more Gemini to reveal a new side of you.

    Gemini – You're on fire and you'll be positively glowing everywhere you go – attracting love in all its forms.

    Cancer – You are more than enough as you are. Don't try and change yourself to fit someone else.

    WHAT IS MY BIRTHSTONE ACCORDING TO MY SIGN?

    Birthstones are believed to bring good luck and therapeutic powers to those who wear them and each zodiac sign has a different stone associated with it.

    According to crystalsandjewelry, here's which sign has what birthstone and why:

    Aries: Bloodstone

    The birthstone for Aries is Bloodstone, which is known to boost strength and courage.

    Aries is known for being one of the strongest signs of the zodiac which fits perfectly.

    Taurus: Emerald

    Emerald is associated with Venus, which is Taurus' ruling planet.

    Taurus likes the finer things in life which is why a show-stopping emerald is perfect for this sign.

    Gemini: Pearl

    Pearl is regarded as the most appropriate birthstone for Gemini because it symbolises the dual-nature of the sign and represents a spiritual journey.

    BEST JOBS FOR LEO: WHAT YOUR SIGN SAYS ABOUT YOUR CAREER

    Not only does your star sign reveal traits about your personality, but it can also determine which job you'd be better suited too.

    Leos are natural-born leaders and will take the reins of any role that is given to them. They make excellent candidates for management roles and bring an infectious enthusiasm to the workplace.

    Leos are confident and fearlessly ambitious and this sign is always striving to be the boss.

    Leos make great actors due to their love of the limelight and their organisational skills are second to know, making them the perfect candidate for an event manager to whip a party into shape.

    There's no doubt a Leo has style, so a fashion designer wouldn't be a huge stretch of the imagination, as they're always on trend.

    Find more on the best jobs for Leos here.

    WHAT IS PRINCE CHARLES' STAR SIGN?

    Prince Charles' birthday is in November, making him a Scorpio.

    He's remained passionate about all of his interests throughout his life, both royal and non-royal, especially when it comes to the environment and known for being tough-minded, Scorpios aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in.

    Charles' wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, is a Cancer and the couple's signs are said to be highly compatible.

    They connect emotionally, physically and intellectually and once their bond has been established, the relationship tends to last the duration.

    CROWN JEWELS: WHAT IS THE QUEEN'S STAR SIGN?

    We're in the birthday season of Taurus and that just so happens to be the zodiac sign of the Queen, who was born on 21 April.

    Traits associated with Taurus are strength, grace and occasionally stubbornness too.

    It's no surprise the Queen is a Taurus – she will never give up on her country and her people and will always fight (harmoniously) for what's best.

    With a less than favourable year, the monarch has stuck to her principles of hard work and dependability while always honouring tradition.

    WHY MAY IS THE LUCKIEST MONTH TO BE BORN

    If you're born between April 20 and May 20, you're lucky enough to be a Taurus and right now, you should be feeling a real sense of 'anything is possible' thanks to it being your birthday season.

    Taureans are traditionally grounded, determined and patient and are as loyal as they come.

    Their animal is the bull, which means they can be one of two paces, either slow and steady or ready to take charge – and the month of May is when Taureans should be lapping up all the good things on offer.

    Now is the time to reconnect with yourself and set yourself goals for the next year, as Venus enters Gemini and is set to shake things up career-wise in a good way.

    In other words, Venus in Gemini is a great time for money, so Taureans, it's down to you to make it rain.

    May is an opportune time for Taurus to reinvent itself

    WHAT IS MY MOON SIGN?

    Just like you have a sun sign, you also have a moon sign and it's considered the second most important influence in your horoscope chart.

    Your moon sign represents your emotions, your inner mood and according to starslikeyou.com: "In many ways, your moon sign will describe what you do naturally, and your sun sign will point to what you will develop, as well as who you must become."

    It's determined by calculating your full date, place and time of birth and finding your position around the moon.

    Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign – i.e. you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign might be in Sagittarius.

    You can have your moon sign calculated here.

    WHAT IS MY SUN SIGN?

    In astrology, your sun sign is what most people consider their star sign.

    The sun sign, influenced by your day and month of birth, dictates your zodiac personality and shows what you want.

    Star signs are linked to certain traits, both positive and negative.

    You can find out your star sign simply by seeing when your birthday falls in the dates below.

    • Aries: March 21 – April 19
    • Taurus: April 20 – May 20
    • Gemini: May 21 – June 20
    • Cancer: June 21 – July 22
    • Leo: July 23 – August 22
    • Virgo: August 23 – September 22
    • Libra: September 23 – October 22
    • Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
    • Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
    • Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
    • Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
    • Pisces: February 19 – March 20

    HOW DO I FIND MY RISING SIGN?

    Your rising sign (or astral ascendent) is basically your public persona and the part of you you reveal when you first meet someone. Some people actually think it reveals more about them than their star sign (their sun sign) does.

    To calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the precise time and location you were born and then you can find out your sign here by simply entering your details and letting the cosmic calculator do the rest.

    If you're wondering why the place and time of when you were born is important, it's because they both have a role to play in astrology – for instance, if it is day in Australia, it is night in the UK, so the effect of the sun and other planets is said to be reversed.

    It's really important the data you input is as accurate as possible as even one degree of latitude out can skew the reading.

      WHO IS GEMINI'S SOULMATE AND WHO ARE GEMINIS SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO?

      Geminis are known for being impulsive, curious and infectiously enthusiastic and there's three signs that could be perfect matches for the sign of the twins.

      Libra, Aries, and Aquarius are the best love matches for a Gemini, with Libra being the ultimate perfect partner.

      Both Libra and Gemini are guided by the element of Air and they're equals in terms of intelligence and gregariousness, as well as both loving all things cultural.

      Both love to have a good time, are great when it comes to communication and adventurous in bed – with their curiosity the basis of a good sex life.

      Although, Geminis are also sexually attracted to limelight loving Leos, who love getting creative in the bedroom.

      Gemini will enjoy basking in the glory of Leo's ego and finds their unstoppable confidence a real turn on.

      WHEN IS MERCURY IN RETROGRADE IN 2021?

      Mercury completes its orbit around the Sun in about 88 days, while the Earth takes 365 days. Since Mercury moves faster, it whizzes past the Earth 3-4 times each year.

      As the planet nears us, it appears to slow down, stop, move backward, stop again, then move forward andwhen the planet of communication, travel and technology goes backwards we can expect all sorts of delays, glitches and horror of all horrors.

      Heads up, there's two more times this year when Mercury will be in retrograde so best start preparing now.

      In 2021, the planet will be in complete retrograde movements during the following dates:

      • January 30 to February 21
      • May 29 to June 22
      • September 27 to October 23

      MUTABLE SIGNS: GEMINI, VIRGO, SAGITTARIUS & PISCES

      So, if cardinal signs have the idea and fixed signs get the job done, mutable signs saunter in at the 11th hour and take the biscuit.

      "Mutable signs represent the end of each season and the finality of a project or task at hand," Stardust says. "They are flexible due to their understanding of change."

      Life is anything but certain, especially now, but mutable signs can turn on a sixpence and adapt any situation to their advantage.

      They also make light of things, putting a positive spin on the trickiest of times, which is why so many of them go into politics.

      FIXED SIGNS: TAURUS, LEO, SCORPIO & AQUARIUS

      Think of a lion eyeing up its prey and you'll get the idea of the fixed signs' level of focus.

      "Fixed signs are the 'doers' of the zodiac," explains Stardust. "They carry out the ideas manifested by the cardinal signs [and] do all the work needed to complete the task at hand."

      The fixed signs aren't carbon copies of each other, but you better believe they're grafters who will get the job done. Think laser-beam focus on steroids.

      CARDINAL SIGNS: ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA & CAPRICORN

      If something is cardinal, it's fundamental.

      "Cardinal signs are the 'initiators' of the zodiac," says astrologer Lisa Stardust. "They represent a spark or idea. They also signify the beginning of the season."

      The cardinal signs often come up with the best ideas. They may not be great at always following them through to fruition, but you want these entrepreneurial visionaries on your team.

      IS YOUR SIGN FIXED, CARDINAL OR MUTABLE?

      If you’ve been checking out our horoscopes page you’ll know there’s so much more to astrology than just your star sign.

      Your rising, moon, Lilith and Venus signs all reveal so much about your personality and now there’s three more beauties to wrap your head around.

      There are three modalities in astrology, which are fixed, cardinal or mutable.

      A modality is basically the way something is expressed and each of these groups represent the distinctive way each sign expresses their personality and speaks their mind.

      We know it sounds a bit out there, but trust us all will become clear…
