Is Love Written in the Stars for You?

Love

Do you let your daily horoscope guide your heart? Determine your own fate for finding love.

Venus moon rising. Sun square Pluto. These are common phrases seen in daily horoscopes and astrological readings. Depending on your sign, based on where the planets are aligned, the prediction for your day may have you prepared to win the lottery or ready to climb back in bed. 

Zodiac compatibility pairs Aries with Leos and Sagittarius for lifelong love and Cancers and Capricorns are considered their worst partners. There are predictions of success for love, romance and happiness for every sign and every sign pairing possible.

If you are a regular reader of your horoscope, you may notice that some days say to put on your best outfit because you are poised to meet someone special. Other days, you may be warned that love is not in the cards this week. Whether you follow the stars for guidance or sheer entertainment, it's important to err on the side of caution when letting the horoscope predict your love life.

On the days that you read something positive, it can relate to a good day. A seed has been subliminally planted that may make you more personable and charming because you are expecting to meet someone that day. Or the reverse can happen. You could spend the day anxiously waiting for Prince Charming to arrive.  When midnight strikes, your day has officially turned into a pumkin, because he's not anywhere to be found.  

A weekly horoscope may advise that this is not the week to find love. "Singles will be challenged in relationships." This tidbit of information may leave you feeling defeated. Rather than being social and active, you may decide to spend your nights home alone because the stars already told you there's nothing out there for you right now. 

If you are actively reading your astrological forecasts, watch for the following signs that you may be letting the stars control your destiny

Favorable Day Predictions

  • You tend to be more upbeat and outgoing.
  • You have a more positive outlook on finding love.
  • You find yourself being more social with friends and family.
  • You have a spring in your step. 
  • You smile at strangers.
  • You engage in small talk at places like the bank or grocery store.
  • You feel on top of the world.
  • You feel hopeful, optimistic and enthusiastic.   

Unfavorable Day Predictions 

  • Your day seems gloomy.
  • You look for things to go wrong.
  • You aren't suprised when something unfortunate happens. 
  • You don't dress to impress.
  • You don't wear your best accessory - your smile.
  • You aren't outgoing or personable.
  • You decide nothing good could possibly happen that day. 
  • You don't look for love because you know it's not looking for you. 

When you read your horoscope at the start of your day, you are setting a very powerful tone to your day. You may be allowing it to navigate you towards what it is written versus what you can make your day to be. If you are a faithful morning reader, switch up your routine. Read your forecast at the end of the day and compare it to the day you actually had. You may notice shockingly accurate similarities or a day that looks completely unlike your own. 

To believe that every Libra or every Virgo is experience the same exact day is impossible. It is like saying every Gemini or every Scorpio is exactly alike. Similarities may exist, but each person is their own person. There are countless factors to determine your personality, likes, dislikes and free will choices.

The best of the best astrologers even advise to use the readings as a helpful guide not as The Bible. There is room for flexibility and error in these readings. Just because an astrology chart may tell you love is not in the cards does not mean that for you. Think of your horoscope like the weather forecast. There is science and truth behind it, but, just like the weather, the forecast can change at any minute. 

If you are an Aries woman, don't avoid dating the Cancer just because his sign is not compatible to yours. Write your own horoscope. Predict your own fate. Attract love into your life because you have decided it to be so. Love IS in the stars for you. Chart your own path to happiness to find love.
