SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2017
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Overreacting will cost you when it comes to love and romance. You are best not to make assumptions. Offer understanding and you’ll get a far better response from someone you want in your life. A positive change of attitude will improve your love life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Have patience, but be ready to make a commitment when the time is right. Knowing what you want and being willing to compromise will help you end up with someone who is as practical and aware as you are of how to build a forever relationship.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s going to take more than good looks and chemistry to make your heart keep beating with anticipation. Intellectual sparring will be testimony to how suited you are and whether it’s enough to ward off the usual boredom that sets in when the physical magic begins to diminish.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your feelings will be difficult to contain. If you love someone, give him or her the space required to figure out if the feelings are mutual. If you are fun to be with, it will be much easier to entice the object of your desire into your life permanently.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Let romance unfold naturally. Enjoy the moment and what life has to offer. Your passionate and playful attitude will attract plenty of options when it comes to picking the best person to share your adventures with. The partner who keeps up will be the one who wins your heart.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Tally up the pros and cons of matrimony and consider what you have to do to make it worthwhile. Equality is a necessity if you plan to join forces and create a strong and stable future. Physical romance won’t be hard to find, but a forever relationship is not so easy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Secrets will be revealed if you share your personal thoughts with someone you think you can trust. When it comes to feelings regarding someone else, you are best not to be obvious or send the wrong message. Avoid anyone who is still involved with someone else.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Set boundaries when it comes to love. Before you let someone into your private thoughts, plans or personal information, you are best to wait until you are certain you have built up enough trust to feel comfortable doing so. Premature intimacy will put you in an awkward position.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll face a conflict if you make a romantic promise and don’t deliver. Getting involved with someone who bases your love on commitment will stifle your free-spirited personality. Make it clear that you need freedom to come and go as you please in order to offer loyalty and trust.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Ready, set –- make your move. Romance is highlighted and a commitment can be made. Don’t feel you have to be impulsive, but when you do make up your mind, be clear and put your plans in motion. A prenuptial that goes both ways will clear up any uncertainty.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can talk your way into the heart of anyone you find interesting, informative and inventive. Looking for a suitable partner takes time, effort and plenty of research. Keep your eyes open for someone who is into trying new things and willing to experiment before making a commitment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be drawn to someone from your past or someone who reminds you of a love lost. Think twice before you make the same mistake you have in the past. Let love come to you, and don’t be too eager to become whatever your pursuer wants you to be.
