SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 2018
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotions will be difficult to contain. Before you decide to mix and mingle, don’t set expectations that are impossible for anyone to reach. Concentrate on what you have to offer and how you respond to anyone trying to get to know you better. Give and take will be essential.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll send mixed messages if you act one way and talk another. Consistency will be important if you want to attract someone who is practical and looking for the same type of lifestyle you prefer to live. Be yourself, not someone you think someone wants you to be.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Staying power will be the problem when it comes to romance. You’ll be attracted to many and find it difficult to make up your mind or to maintain interest in anyone who isn’t equally as changeable and dynamic as you. Have fun, but don’t make promises you know you won’t keep.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be the victim or let partners with problems latch on to you. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and someone who has more to offer and shares your values will come along if you are patient. Walk away from any partner exhibiting excessive behavior.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional, indulgent tendencies will make relationships difficult. Whether it’s you acting up or someone you are with, it will be hard to know how you feel or where you stand. Curb your habits, say little and do your best to keep the peace and get along.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Aim for friendship first. Look for the person who is eager to participate in the same activities as you and who shares your values, and let your relationship grow slowly. Knowing exactly what you are getting into will take the edge off any uncertainty or doubt you are feeling.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll experience mixed emotions. One day it will be you feeling confused, and the next someone you’ve been spending time with lately. Don’t read too much into the ups and downs. All you can do is to be upfront about your likes and dislikes and see what happens.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You won’t have trouble attracting partners, but you will have trouble choosing the right one. Someone you meet will be misleading, leaving you at a loss when you discover his or her true colors. Don’t let chemistry interfere with your intuition when dealing with affairs of the heart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Socialize, fill up your dance card and kick up your heels. Your exuberance will be hard to resist. You’ll change your tune and your mind almost as quickly as you alter your plans. It will take someone with the capacity to change course as quickly as you do to keep up.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A shift in the way you view others will make it difficult for you to decide to be with any particular partner. An unpredictable emotional attitude will set in, making you crave more and denounce anyone you feel is slowing you down or holding you back.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You won’t be seeing too clearly when it comes to the people you gravitate toward. Question your motives and why you feel the need to spend time with someone who doesn’t share your values, traditions or your lifestyle. Don’t mistake someone’s eccentricities as being good for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be prone to fall for someone who is still attached to someone else. Before heading down that path, look for other options. It’s up to you to choose someone who has more to offer. You deserve better and should rule out any relationship that does not offer commitment.
