Your next TV binge is written in the stars: Cosmic Love, Amazon Prime's new dating series, is a must for those who are in tune with the zodiac. (Yes, your August horoscope agrees that you need to tune in.) 

2022 has bestowed a plethora of cool/inventive/odd reality dating shows upon us, and the concepts only grow more unique. Are we surprised that in the time of Mercury retrograde hysteria and full moon memes that producers have turned to the stars for some help? Instead of handing out roses, hopeful and hopeless romantics will soon be rewarding potential matches with tarot cards and crystals. (Kidding...sort of!)

If you're feeling intrigued and need something to fill the Love Island void, it's time to consult the astrologers.

'Cosmic Love' Amazon Prime

"I'm ready to hand my fate over to the universe and live my fairytale," we hear an optimistic contestant reveal in the trailer. 

Some reality shows don't allow husbands and wives in the making to see each other before saying "I do," but in this case, no one is stepping into marriage without a deep dive into astrological birth charts.  

Four participants were more than willing to trust the stars. In this new experiment, this quartet of "elements" is split up—Air, Fire, Water and Earth—and use astrological matchmaking to bring them towards a spouse, one of the 16 singles also looking for love.

This celestial-minded "villa" is a retreat run by a mystical guide, the Astro Chamber (voiced by Cree Summer and directed by the AstroTwins, Ophira and Tali Edut). Will the singles use their cosmic guides to finding a partner, or will they dismiss astrology compatibility entirely? 

"Anything can work," astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab) previously told us about compatible signs. "If you're not willing to work with a sign, then maybe you have to figure out why. That probably says more about you and the shadow aspects of your own zodiac sign more so than theirs."

Meet the elements

Four people are putting it all on the line and deferring to the cosmos to help them find a match. Here's who's who.

Connor Shennan: Gemini, Air Element

Connor loves the outdoors and sports, which you'd expect from an air element, but will his need to weigh every option affect his path towards love?
