Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Your 2020 love horoscope (because Cupid doesn’t take off the rest of the year!)
Sensuality and sentimentality are in the air this Valentine’s Day as the moon sizzles in magnetic Scorpio and forms a lucky trine to poetic Mercury in Pisces. Forget conversation hearts. Unleash your inner Rumi…or yeah, some strategic sexting could generate serious heat. With Venus and Mars in fire signs, any form of physical activity will be an aphrodisiac. Dancing in the streets or in the sheets? Your call.
Caveat: The emerald-eyed monster could creep up if someone wants to steal time with your S.O. Don’t freak out if they get stuck at the office or need to swing by a relative’s house before your dinner date. Single? This could be the year to celebrate a solo V-Day and indulge in a few of your favorite things, like a decadent meal or a massage.
Either way, don’t let the pressures of this Hallmark holiday bum you out! Staying in to make a vision board and do a love ritual might be a better use of your time than forcing yourself out to some cliché singles event.
BUT… with Venus and Mars in daring, courageous fire signs (Aries + Sagittarius), you might just set aside any cooler-than-thou fears and go mingle with people who aren’t afraid to admit that they’d like to find some love in their lives. Taking a “risk” like that could definitely bring rewards—even if it’s just a sultry hookup that gets you back in the game!
Read on to learn about what St. Valentine has in store for every zodiac sign, now and for all year.

2020 Love Horoscopes for Every Zodiac Sign
With your goal-oriented tenth house activated by Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, you might feel as if you’re married to the job, with more “quality time” than quantity for your boo, Aries. Or, you and your S.O. could team up on a professional mission. Maybe you start a business together or join forces where your careers dovetail. With love planet Venus in flirty Gemini from April 7 to August 3, a coworker crush could heat up; or Cupid could reveal a keeper in your friend zone. Lusty Mars, your red-blooded ruler, spends an extra-long time in Aries, from June 27 to January 6, 2021. During this time, your magnetism will be amplified. Be ultra-discerning about who you draw close while Mars is retrograde from September 9 to November 13!
Cupid takes you on an international tour for your 2020 love horoscope, thanks to a posse of planets occupying your global ninth house, Taurus. Single? Diversify your dating portfolio instead of sticking to the same old type. Coupled Bulls may explore unconventional arrangements, possibly living long-distance from each other for part of the year. Traveling and romance make happy bedfellows, so bring on the “baecations,” and maybe a vacation fling! With your ruler, romantic Venus, going retrograde from May 13 to June 25, you have a chance to evaluate what really matters to you in love. Bolstering your own sense of self-worth can totally transform a rocky relationship. Remember, Bull: Change starts within.
A scintillating year is in store as wild-child Jupiter joins seductive Pluto in your erotic eighth house until December 19, Gemini. This is the zone of perma-bonding, so you could truly live the dream of having a passionate partner who also wants a committed relationship. With your libido fired up to eleven you’ll be freak in the sheets…and maybe also on the streets. There’s no shame in your sensual game in your 2020 love horoscope, especially while ardent Venus takes an extended tour through Gemini, from April 3 through August 7. But that doesn’t mean you should barrel ahead on every impulsive whim. Venus will be retrograde from May 13 to June 25. This could bring back an ex or lead you on a regrettable detour down temptation’s trail.
Your most important duos get more dynamic in 2020 as jovial Jupiter sails alongside committed Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and your seventh house of partnerships. Serious relationships don’t have to feel like a giant weight on your shoulders, Cancer. Enough of that, please! Free-spirited Jupiter, along with three final eclipses on the Cancer/Capricorn axis, will help you strike the right balance between “me” and “we.” When Saturn and Jupiter shift into your seductive, stick-it-out eighth house in late December, important bonds will be cemented, both for business and pleasure.
With love planet Venus logged in to your tech sector from April 3 to August 7, you’ll be the belle of Bumble and the hive leader of Hinge. But, like the Supremes sang, you can’t hurry love. From March 21 to July 1, enduring Saturn hunkers down in Aquarius and your seventh house of relationships, its first visit there since January 1994! Coupled Leos could make serious future plans, or you may decide to restructure your entire approach to relationships. Saturn returns to Aquarius for two-plus years on December 17, joined by lucky Jupiter from December 19, 2020 to December 29, 2021. As the year ends, you’ll be in your amorous element!
Passion isn’t just percolating in your 2020 love horoscope, it’s spilling into every corner of your life. With effusive Jupiter sailing alongside serious Saturn and seductive Pluto until December 19, this year brings epic romantic highs.

Sexy vibes go from warm to exothermic on June 27, when Mars conducts a chemistry experiment in your erotic eighth house that burns until January 6, 2021. We can already feel the power of your purr!
The year starts off on a soft-filtered and sentimental note but gets a whole lot hotter by spring! From March 21 to July 1, slow-burning Saturn heads into Aquarius, stoking a bonfire in your fifth house of amour, Libra. A relationship that’s both stable and passionate could be in the stars. Or, you could take a serious step with your boo. This cycle strikes up again on December 19, when brazen Jupiter and Saturn team up in Aquarius for over a year! Fiery Mars blazes through your partnership zone from July 27 to January 6, 2021, giving you the courage to commit! One catch: Couple’s counseling might be needed during an emotionally charged retrograde that lasts from September 9 to November 13.
Flirt alert! The Scorpio coquette comes out to play, as bawdy Jupiter joins your ruler, sultry Pluto, in your communication corner. As a general rule, you prefer the depth and security of long-term relationships. But your 2020 love horoscope calls for a few sweet, ephemeral flings keep you fulfilled “in the meanwhile.” Digital dating could bring you a lucky swipe. A friendship could evolve into true love. Coupled Scorpios should put more cultural activities on the shared calendar and mingle often as a pair. On November 30, the Gemini lunar eclipse brings a milestone moment for relationships.
Massive astrological activity blows through your Gemini-ruled seventh house this year, pushing you to go “all in” with a partner. On May 5, the lunar North Node arrives in Gemini for the first time since 2003. This could call in a meant-to-be-mate who directs your destiny. Attached Archers could discover your true north as a couple. Embark on a co-created mission that shakes up life as you know it…in a thrilling way! By the same token, this year will not be without its amorous challenges. Love planet Venus spins retrograde in Gemini from May 13 to June 25, and her lusty dance partner Mars will reverse commute through Aries and your passionate fifth house from September 13 to November 9. Old wounds will be scratched, and exes crawl out of the woodwork. A Gemini lunar eclipse on November 30 could reveal incompatibilities. This might push coupled Centaurs to find win-wins or possibly to go your separate ways. On a bright note, this lunar lift could accelerate breathtaking developments, like a holiday season engagement or a pregnancy!
People may come and go during this free-spirited year, but the one enduring relationship to focus on is the love affair with yourself, Capricorn. With self-authorized Jupiter on its once-per-decade trek through your sign, you’re poised to make a massive leap into a new league! Game-changer Uranus spends its first full year in Taurus and your fame and romance zone, shortening your amorous attention span—but making you frisky and experimental! DO reserve huge swaths of time for developing your big ideas (and “brand”). Then, focus on quality over quantity in your encounters with the ones you j’adore. Don’t worry, being independent doesn’t have to mean being alone. Two Cancer eclipses on January 10 and June 21 could cement relationships. From April through August, Venus will call for support structures, like date nights, to keep your partnerships from fizzling out.
With amorous Venus spending an extra-long time in Gemini and your romantic fifth house, from April 3 to August 7, your heart’s racing at a faster BPM. This passionate cycle includes a retrograde (from May 13 to June 25) which could bring trouble from an ex or reunite you with “the one that got away.” Coupled Aquarians will want to be “seen on the scene” together, so bring on the dress-up dates. With the North Node (destiny point) moving into Gemini, along with a lunar eclipse on November 30, 2020 could bring some beautiful surprises, like meeting the love of your life, getting engaged, making babies, or taking some sort of epic leap with a partner.
Tap that app! With your eleventh house of technology and community lit by three planets and an eclipse, you could find true love via a virtual connection. Or, stop resisting and let friends fix you up on blind dates, Pisces. (They know you better than you think.) Coupled Pisces should mingle often as a pair. Your 2020 love horoscope calls for you to assemble a shared friend group for dinner parties and vacations. Two Cancer eclipses, on January 10 and June 21, sizzle in your fifth house of amour. These lunar lifts bring game-changing milestones, like engagements, pregnancies or other life-changing shared experiences.
