SUNDAY, JULY 23, 2017


ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t sit at home when you should be out socializing. You’ll attract all sorts of interest that will feed your ego and put you in a favorable position when it comes to finding love. Keep your options open until you find the partner who can offer equality on all levels.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There will be a fine line between passion and possession. Be careful not to lead someone on who is aggressive or eager to claim you as his or hers alone. A practical approach to love will help ward off anyone trying dictate what you can or cannot do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your interests are so varied; look for a partner who is as diverse as you if you want to avoid boredom followed by a short-lived relationship. The family that plays together stays together, so make sure whomever you choose can and wants to participate.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Listen carefully. Someone offering a kind gesture may have ulterior motives. When it comes to love and romance, take your time and get to know the person pursuing you inside out before you let your heart and your emotions take over. Friendship before intimacy is encouraged.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22): Truth regarding who you are and where you came from will be necessary when it comes to love, romance and commitment. Make sure that you project an honest image of your life and that your assessment of the person you want to be with is accurate as well.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Having high standards is great, but keep in mind no one is perfect — including you. Give love a chance instead of eliminating a potential partner before giving him or her a chance to win your heart. The person willing to put in the time and effort is worth considering.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your heart on the line. Stop procrastinating and make a move. Listen to your heart, and follow through with actions. You choose who you want to be with instead of letting someone choose you. Trust your intuition and your intelligence to guide you to the right partner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your interest in people you find unique or that intrigue you will not serve you well. A guarded approach to love will be warranted if you want to avoid overlooking some fundamental drawbacks with the partners who grab your attention this week. Think before you act.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your desire to add a little stability to your love life will be thwarted with your need to stay in contact with old flames and the friends you party with. Decisions will be tough and should be based on what makes you happy, spending a night in or going out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t feel you have to jump into any romantic situation quickly. Time is on your side, and making the right choice should be your top priority. Intellectual stimulation will be equally as important as chemistry when it comes to a long-term relationship. Don’t let looks fool you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Step up your game and get out and party! Your charismatic, energetic, playful way of dealing with others will make you the most engaging person in the room. Share your ideas and experimental approach to life and love, and someone will want to share your fancies.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love can be heart-wrenching if you don’t choose a partner for the right reason. Look for someone compatible, not for someone you think will mold you or change you into something you are not. Love who you are and what you do, and you’ll attract someone who appreciates you.
