What's in Store for Your Love Life in July 2017, According to Your Zodiac
(March 21 to April 19)
It's way too easy to succumb to a "woe is me" mentality when things aren't going well in your relationship. Before blaming everyone else for how your love life isn't working out (your parents are too strict, your partner is insensitive, school is getting in the way, etc.), consider your approach too. You're not as helpless as you think, in fact there's a lot you can do to move towards your desired outcome if you only decide to make a move, speak up, and decide that you want things to be better. Change starts from within.
(April 20 to May 20)
So you've had a tough experience—are you going to cry over spilled milk again and again? Acknowledging the mishaps and wrong choices you've made in the past is the first step in carving out your next relationship. Yes—the possibility of a next one still exists if you want it. Use what didn't work out to draw your boundaries. Figure out what you will not settle for and what you're willing to compromise the next time you meet someone who sparks your interest. You can pick up the pieces if you will it!
(May 21 to June 20)
Are you always fending off admirers who are totally not your type? Does everyone you like seem to be out of reach, and is it beginning to annoy you that everyone who makes a move on you is someone you see platonically? It's time to get clear with your love intentions, Gemini. No more mincing words. Even when you're just huddled with your girl friends, sharing secrets, spill out exactly the type of person you want to be in a relationship with. Remember—when we talk with intention, the Universe listens.
(June 21 to July 22)
Is your current relationship feeling less than exciting? Are you getting into a rut even if you've only been with each other for a few weeks? It's time to take the reins and steer your partnership exactly where you want it to go. Come up with fresh ideas about what you two can do over the weekend (think out of the box!). Are you two sitting in silence because you'd rather not talk about why he's been spending so much time with his girl best friend who you've always had weird suspicions about? Talk it out. Lead.
(July 23 to August 22)
Everyone carries some kind of baggage with them as far as relationships go. Just because you feel like having a good cry, or just because it feels like you're carrying way too much on your shoulders for what was supposed to be a simple crush or an "experiment" at dating, doesn't mean that you aren't a strong person. Sometimes, we need to let our guard down and acknowledge that even if we haven't got the perfect relationship doesn’t mean that we're less worthy of love. It's okay to ask for help.
(August 23 to September 22)
Trust is the basis of any relationship... and if you're always going to be checking your partner's phone, trying to hack into his email, or stalking all the exes on Instagram, you're building a relationship on a very weak foundation. Sooner or later, that lack of faith will catch up with you and could cause more pain down the line. Set things straight as soon as you can—if you have trust issues, talk it out. It's better to deal with everything early on than to wait for things to get worse.
(September 23 to October 22)
Have you considered that maybe moving on has been super hard for you because you haven't actually let go of old grudges yet? It takes a whole lot of courage to forgive someone—especially if you're on the receiving end of some really crappy behavior. There's no need to shore up old wounds and calling up every ex that's hurt you before... finding forgiveness from within is sometimes enough. A lot of times, moving on only requires you to say sorry to yourself and to tell yourself you're forgiven.
(October 23 to November 21)
It's great that you've been happily single for a while now, and there is certainly nothing wrong with spending some good, quality time with yourself. That said, if your rom-com binges just aren't doing it for you anymore, it's perfectly okay to get out of your comfort zone and start taking action on your love life again. Moving back into the dating scene after being single for a good, solid time is pretty ideal—you've got a clear mind and an intact heart that will have you ready for whatever may come.
(November 22 to December 21)
You may not feel it yet, but you've got a lot going for you this month, Sagittarius. If things have been feeling hopeless with the object of your affection, don't lose hope. Sometimes, the Universe gifts you with possibilities and opportunities that you don't pick up on right away. Keep your eyes open and your heart ready for any gifts that may come your way. Not all presents come in a form we expect...so greet every surprise with gratitude and know that love is on your way.
(December 22 to January 19)
Some love stories take a lot longer than others to come into fruition. You may feel like you're in an endless maze when it comes to finding the right person for you—the stars advise you to stay on course and keep the faith. Your person is out there, possibly within reach. Count every hurdle as one step closer to your happy ending, stay positive and be open to serendipity when it comes to you. Everything romance related in you life is looking up right now!
(January 20 to February 18)
Are you all out of ideas when it comes to the right partner for you? The stars have a couple of clues to help guide you romance-wise! Someone with a good dose of maturity will do you some good. Your perfect complement is someone who isn't afraid to deal with the sensitive stuff (no hiding of feelings or emotions!), but knows when sentimentality needs to be set aside so that more serious matters can be taken care of. Watch out for someone who wears glasses too—just a hint. ;)

Have your friends been pestering you about a set-up and have you been too weirded out by the idea to go along with it? Here's a tip. Spark a bit more excitement in your life by saying yes to a blind date that matches you with someone who isn't typically your type. If you like playing it safe and secure, go for someone with a bold and adventurous streak. Keep your eyes peeled for extreme sports enthusiasts... Ever tried bungee jumping or skydiving? He may just be the guy to convince you to try it out.
