Co-Star quietly drops new compatibility feature

You've finally convinced your newest crush to reveal their zodiac sign, only to discover that your Taurus-Scorpio relationship can be, well, challenging. As any astrology enthusiast will tell you, astrological compatibility at the sun sign level doesn't always tell the whole story. Enter: Eros, Co-star's first subscription-based service designed to give couples "a new perspective on how to function and impact each other."

While your inner Libra may be tempted to rock your first date with a $6.99-a-month Eros subscription, Eros isn't meant to be a litmus test for compatibility. Rather, it is intended to be a tool for you and your significant other (or your platonic soulmate) to better understand the dynamics of your relationship based on your birth chart.

By providing you and your partner with comprehensive horoscopes, reminders to support each other through different astrological cycles, date ideas, love letter prompts, and more, Cupid can help you and your partner feel closer than ever.

Here are the complete steps on how to use Co-Star's new Eros feature.

How to use Co-Star's Eros feature

First, make sure your Co-Star application is up to date. The Eros feature was added to Co-Star via an update released on the App Store in January, and is now available on Android as well. After updating the app, all you need to do is open the app and scroll down a little until you see the section titled "Eros." The app offers a one-week free trial, so you can try it out before paying the $6.99 monthly fee.

Click to subscribe to the feature and select your partner from your friends list. Your partner needs to already have a Co-Star account and be friends with you to be your partner on Eros. (Unlike apps like The Pattern, you won't be able to manually enter their birth information to generate a chart for them.) Eros is a shared subscription, so whether you subscribe or sign up for a free trial, you can invite your partner to access Eros. You can also choose not to - in case you'd rather coyly take credit for the Cupid date night idea - or invite them later via the button at the bottom of the Cupid section.

From here, all you have to do is check in every day to get a new perspective on your relationship, just like you do with your co-stars. Every day, in the Cupid section, you'll find materials like a comprehensive relationship horoscope for a given time period, suggested actions to take with your partner, options for sending love letters to each other via co-stars, multiple-choice date creative options, and more, and more.

This feature highlights how you and your partner can better support and understand each other based on your astrological placement, as well as what you may be experiencing based on current cosmic events. So, whether you need a date night of rest and relaxation as Mercury retrograde ends, or you want to escape the drama of a Valentine's Day full moon, giving Cupid a try can be a great gift for yourself and your partner.
