In search of someone special? If you’re wondering how to manifest love and step into a new relationship this year, our go-to astrologers are here to provide guidance from the cosmos.
As our 2022 love horoscopes indicate, we are in for big lessons romantically. A new study says Gen Z and millennials are looking for love while on the dating scene. It’s clear there’s a desire to partner up, but how do we ensure we get what we want and deserve?
“I have always found that manifesting love is easiest to do when you've done the work to be happy with yourself first,” says astrologer Renée Watt (opens in new tab). “Engaging with a hobby or new form of study is also great because it lights up your aura while you diversify your skills and personality.”
Embrace some “me time,” uncover exactly what it is you’re looking for in another person and get ready to send those vibes out into the dating world.

When to manifest love in 2022
“Taurus and Libra season are both perfect times to connect on a heart level,” she says. “Since these members of the zodiac are both ruled by Venus, sparks are more likely to fly than usual.”
Mark your calendars: Taurus season runs from April 20 to May 20 in 2022 and Libra season takes place from September 23 to October 22.
Watt adds: “Taurus season is perfect for glamming yourself up, but it's also awesome for sexy, sensual dates. Go out to fancy dinners, wear luxurious fabrics and splurge on a new fragrance that you find attractive. Libra season will be more about flirting and talking, so you won't need to spend as much money on dates or time preparing for them.”
Meanwhile, astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab) believes in personalizing the process. She recommends manifesting love under a new moon that falls in your fifth house of dating and romance or seventh house of commitment to ensure the best results.
“You may not have a new partner in six months, by the time there’s a full moon, but you’ll have a few more opportunities under your belt to figure out what you want in love going forward,” she adds.
You can also go with the season that your Venus sign is in. (Yes, it’s time to whip out those birth charts, folks.)
A few important dates to note:
The cosmos' consensus? It's time to find love.
On April 5, Venus enters Pisces, which is not only considered one of the best April 2022 horoscope findings but also one of the best transits of the entire year that's bound to exude, money, pleasure and love.
Ten days later, astrologers believe it's the perfect time to plan a date. (We could all use a night out.)
“[April 15] is a Friday, which is love day, just hours before the full moon," says astrologer Inbaal Honigman (opens in new tab). "The sun is in passionate, playful Aries, and the moon is in elegant, graceful Libra. Mercury is direct (not retrograde) in dependable Taurus, and Venus is in Pisces, one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac."
But the fun's not over yet: the Stellium in Pisces delivers another dose of romance.
On April 26, right at the start of Taurus season, we'll experience a beautiful conjunction: Jupiter, Neptune, Venus, the Moon, Mars and asteroid Juno in Pisces, the emotional water sign.
There's a lot going on, but it'll all be positive. Plus, it'll pave the way for the rest of 2022.
"We're going to see more opportunities for love and to romantically connect to people. It wouldn't be surprising if there are a lot of people coupling up around and a lot of people stabilizing their long-term commitments," says astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab).
Yes, our planners are accurately marked, thank you very much.
How to manifest love in your life:
While many of us turn to the art of manifesting with crystals—rose quartz is perfect for matters of the heart—there are other ways in which to go about finding your person.
Geranium oil is perfect for attracting masculine energy and tobacco is a go-to for attracting female energy, according to Watt (who conveniently offers a DIY jar for attracting a soulmate (opens in new tab)).
Simmons is all about making a list and checking it twice. In any sort of astrological experience, she is anxious to map all her thoughts out on paper.
“Define exactly what you want before doing anything,” she says. “Writing down an explicit list of qualities and characteristics you want not only in a partner, but in a relationship, can really define what you’re looking for—that way there are no ifs, ands, or buts.”

What exactly is vabbing, TikTok's new trend?
Vabbing is perhaps more questionable than the whole 'lube as primer' fad that just made the rounds
