SUNDAY, AUGUST 20, 2017
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t make impulsive moves or promises when it comes to love, romance and relationships or you’ll find yourself in a compromising position. Keep your dialogue simple and noncommittal, and you will not only capture attention, but you will avoid getting entrapped by someone with ulterior motives or who is manipulative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your wisdom, industrious attitude and charm will attract interest. But if you come on too strong or show jealous or possessive tendencies, you will have little luck getting to first base when it comes to love and romance. Be observant and curious, not critical and overbearing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Hang out with people you feel comfortable with and who share your ideology and respect for life and liberty. Protect against anyone trying to lure you into a relationship filled with restrictions. Choose intelligence over chemistry when it comes to love, romance and personal relationships.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Set guidelines when it comes to love. Don’t settle for someone who challenges you emotionally. Choose someone who offers as much as you and who is striving to reach similar personal goals. A stable home and relationship will ensure the permanence you search for.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A chance to meet someone special is apparent. Head to places or take in events or entertainment that you don’t normally attend. A new interest or pastime will result in meeting someone who shares your mindset. Follow your heart, and your destiny will unfold.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): All you have to do is be a participant. Get out, join in and share your wisdom, imagination and ideas. Someone will be attracted to you, your passion to make a difference and to your physical appearance. Be yourself and let new relationships develop naturally.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Someone that offers a lot of excitement but little substance will attract your attention. Be careful not to get caught up in the moment and lose your sense of equilibrium when it comes to the type of relationship suitable for keeping the tranquil environment you require.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you want someone to respond positively, give that person the freedom to come and go as he or she pleases. Anger, possessiveness and jealousy will result in loneliness. Be creative in your approach to love and willing to share whatever is offered, nothing more. Equality will promote happiness.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Show off, make personal changes and look for the type of partner who is doing exactly the same thing you are. A competitive challenge will bring you in contact with someone who is just as challenging as you are and capable of keeping up with you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Practicality might be what attracts potential partners to you, but before you settle on a pretty face, consider if you’ll be paying for the privilege of being with a showpiece or if there is something mentally and financially substantial being offered in return. Don’t be foolish.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your best foot forward when it comes to love, relationships and bringing about positive change to your personal life. Get involved in causes you believe in, and the person willing to stand by your side and make things happen will be a promising candidate for love and romance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Share your emotions openly, and you will discover a potential partner who is just as compassionate, sensitive and loving as you. Don’t be afraid to make the first move or to jump into a commitment if it feels right. Trust your intuition and pursue your romantic dream.
