4 Reasons Horoscopes Won't Help You Find Love
Do you look to your horoscope for the answers to your dating dilemmas? Here's why it's a mistake.

When I was younger, my mother was a big horoscope fan. Every birthday she'd buy me an astrology reading with a different local reader. In case you wondered, I'm a Cancer. And apparently a typical one.

The stars tell me that Gemini's are the worst women for me to date, but weirdly enough, I always find myself attracted to Gemini women. I could get my chart read a million times, by a million different people, but in the end, it won't give me the answers I want.

Do you only date men of a certain star signs? Do you rule some men out just because they’re a sign you should clash with? I'm telling you now, it's a big mistake. Read on to see the 4 reasons you shouldn't look for love in the horoscopes…

1. They're Not Accurate
Just because you're a Leo and your best sign is an Aquarius, it doesn't mean you won't get on great with a Taurus. In the same way, you could have an amazing relationship with a Cancer.

The problem is, some women take horoscopes too seriously. You can't (and shouldn't) base dating decisions on horoscopes alone. It's fun and it's a great conversation topic, but you can't take it as gospel truth.

2. You Could Miss Mr. Right
So you've decided you'll only date men of certain star signs. You meet a stunning man, and you actually get on great, too. Then you find out he's a sign you clash with, so you rule him out. How do you know he wasn't the one? How do you know he wasn't the ONE guy you're meant to be with?

My chart tells me to avoid Gemini's, but some of my best relationships have been with Gemini women. If I'd blown every Gemini I dated off because of her star sign, I'd have missed some amazing opportunities and experiences. In fact, I would have missed my most amazing opportunity, which is the birth of my daughter. 

3. They‘re Only For Entertainment
Don't take horoscopes seriously. If you look at some of the horoscopes in the papers, some even have disclaimers saying, "These horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only." Doesn't that tell you everything?

4. Men Are Individuals
It's great to learn about yourself as a person. And things like horoscopes, tarot readers, and spiritualists have their place. The thing is horoscopes are so general, everyone can find something to relate to in them.  Start thinking about how you FEEL about the men you meet, instead of worrying about what "Mystic Mog" told you about them.

Start trusting your gut more. Learn how to understand men. Figure out what you want from a relationship. Learn to love yourself. Go on dates with men. See what you like and dislike in men. Discover your deep needs, wants, and desires.

If you do those things, Mystic David says there's definitely love on the horizon for you in 2014.
