Your 2017 Horoscope—A Year of Romantic Possibilities.

Whether Astrology is science or magic, we’re open to most things, if they may be of benefit. ~ Ed.


It’s a new year of romantic possibilities for every sign in the zodiac.

Whether it is finding a love relationship or making the one you have even better, remember the words of the English philosopher, Sir Francis Bacon, who in 1632 wrote that “wiser astrologers believe that there is no fatal necessity in the stars, but that they rather incline than compel.”

We can never forget that we are each masters of our own destiny.

This is a big year for single people who like socializing and are looking for Mr or Miss Right.

Here’s a message from the stars about what may be ahead for your love life:

Aries (March 21 — April 19)

You could finally meet someone who you could experience an amazing chemistry with. But don’t be in a hurry because you will have many relationship opportunities coming your way. If you are not married, this could be year where you receive a marriage proposal. Expect some big change in your love status. It could be an unexpected reversal, especially if you have not met anyone interesting this past year, and want to find a suitable marriage partner. Or, a positive change may occur for you where you finally get out of an unhappy relationship. Either way, you can expect the status of your love life to change.

Taurus (April 20 — May 20)

This year features romantic relationships that come through work or business. You may find a love connection with a supplier or even a customer. It’s also possible that you may have some unique professional relationships this year. Look for a special opportunity where someone serves as a mentor to you. Or it’s possible that you may serve as a mentor to someone else. You may find a job opportunity where the owner wants to teach his (or her) business so that you can take it over one day. That relationship could turn into romance and then, love.

Gemini (May 21 — June 20)

This will be one of your best years for socializing and having lots of options to find Mr or Miss Right. In fact, expect to be dating at least two or three people at the same time as you sort out who you feel the greatest love connection with. One of the best ways to find romance will be through travel. By traveling you will either meet a love interest or discover whether you are truly compatible with an existing partner. One of the big issues you’ll face will be whether or not you can settle down and be faithful to one partner (or whether they can be faithful to you).

Cancer (June 21 — July 22)

This will be an intense year for you and your relationships. But you may finally find a relationship that, while being demanding, truly inspires you. The catch is that it will also come with responsibilities such as having to do more to keep the relationship alive than you are accustomed. As the year progresses, the pressures of additional responsibilities will test your loyalty and commitment to the relationship. Do not allow yourself to be too self-sacrificing. Make sure to set boundaries in any new relationship. If you are in a more well established relationship, you will have to make sure to set limits to avoid your partner becoming too dependent on you (or you on him).

Leo (July 23 — August 22)

As a Leo, you’ll be very much at home because it is a year of love and romance in both new and old relationships. You’ll be super attractive to others and have great social popularity. The biggest danger you could face is becoming too self-involved. Make sure not to ignore your lover’s needs by making the relationship all about you. If you allow your generous loving nature to shine through—this is a year to create the soulmate relationship you’ve longed for. One of the ways that you can feel great connection to your partner is by taking a romantic vacation together where you can make your vows to one another or renew the ones you made years ago. Even if it is not your normal nature, make sure to spend time communicating your feelings and working through any difficult issues. If you do, you’ll become closer than ever.

Virgo (Aug 23 — September 22)

This will be your year to enter an intense and committed relationship with someone who will finally have all the qualities you’ve been looking for. Finally, this year, your wait could be over. Your perfectionist nature has gotten in the way of your finding a dream lover. If you are less critical of yourself and practice more self-acceptance, you’ll find yourself falling more deeply in love with the other person. But this relationship will bring with it certain restrictions such as a lover who can’t hold down a job or who has a disability that requires your understanding and support. Make sure to openly discuss any issues that concern you have with them as opposed to sweeping them under the rug and hoping they will work themselves out.

Libra (Sep 23 — October 22)

This year you’ll be so popular, you’ll have to pinch yourself to believe it’s really happening. Everyone will seem to take notice of you. Since you’ll have lots of romantic opportunities, take your time and choose wisely before committing to one particular person. In the past you were attracted to people who were good-looking at the expense of valuing more lasting character qualities required in a long-term relationship. You are ready to have more depth in your relationships. By mid-year you’ll find a relationship that offers you both the physical attraction and emotional satisfaction you have been yearning for. You’ll know this person when you meet them because of your ability to talk with them as if you had known them for years. This relationship will be your opportunity to have a deep and meaningful connection that could lead to marriage (or a more intense relationship).

Scorpio (Oct 23 — November 21)

During much of this year you may want to avoid socializing because you prefer spending more time alone. Even though you’ll enjoy your solitary moments, you will yearn for a deeper connection that you can only achieve with one person. So resist being a hermit and selectively choose social events where you can meet a person of character and depth like you. Make sure to stay away from parties where drinking is the main event. Instead, find socializing opportunities where people use their mind such at a book lecture or places where they use their heart like a volunteer activity. The person you finally meet is likely to be deeply involved in building their career, so make sure to be patient and understanding in allowing your relationship to blossom.

Sagittarius (November 22 — December 21)

You will have some great friendships this year. Many of them will fix you up with some great prospects. But expect relationships to come and go throughout most of this year. You won’t mind, since you enjoy having your freedom so much anyway. You are attracted to relationships that start out with excitement and chemistry. Unfortunately, they fizzle out quickly. This is a perfect year to plan a long vacation where you’ll have opportunities to meet someone like yourself who enjoys adventure and freedom but who is not needy. You may meet someone who is highly educated and possibly from a foreign country. This person will fascinate you and have the kind of qualities that will make you think of finally settling down, if you are ready.

Capricorn (December 22 — January 19)

This will be a year of working hard in your career, so make sure that you seek a romance with someone who is also ambitious and career-minded. If not, it’s likely that you’ll have conflict with them over spending too much time at the office and enough time in your relationship. This will lead to drama, break-ups and make-ups, which can be both upsetting and distracting to your life goals. It’s very possible you will be attracted to a person who is even more dedicated to climbing the ladder in their career than you are. But if you choose a partner wisely this year, you could build a relationship that will last for the long-term and might even end up in marriage.

Aquarius (January 20 — February 18)

This is a great year for hanging out with friends and socializing at parties. At one of these events you could meet someone who you will feel an easy, genuine friendship, which could eventually lead to a committed love relationship. But first, you will need to develop a friendship with them. You are charismatic and a natural conversationalist. So make sure that the most important quality you share with a love interest is your ability to communicate together—otherwise, you’ll be bored and ultimately, unsatisfied with your new love. Also, be honest with the other person about your need to have the freedom outside of your relationship to enjoy time with friends and other outside activities. If you establish your need for this independence, you’ll avoid potential conflict in your relationship.

Pisces (February 19 — March 20)

This is your year for a dreamy romance with someone you can have a soulmate connection with. You will meet someone who is giving and spiritually oriented like you (and loves animals). But make sure to take the blinders off and see a potential love interest for who they are, and not whom you wished they would be. By doing this you will avoid feeling like a victim of deception. You are likely to meet a love interest in a setting where you are of service or volunteering as opposed to a social event. Your new relationship will allow the other person to give to you instead of you just catering to their needs. If you choose wisely, this could be the year where a long-term committed relationship comes into your life and stays.


Whatever your sign, this is your year to go out in the world and find the kind of love relationship that will bring you joy and happiness. Or, to make the relationship you presently have, even more joyful. It’s up to you.

Remember: the stars incline; they do not compel.
