By any measure, finding the right person to spend the rest of our lives with is a tricky proposition. Wouldn’t it be nice if life had an instructional manual for dealing with this issue?

What if it did?

Astrology and Dating: A Rough Guide to a Rewarding Journey
To a certain degree, astrology is all about making educated guesses. Whether those guesses relate to career outcomes, dating, or interpersonal communication is up to the individual. At base, however, astrology is a system that helps us to understand human relationships. Think of it as a kind of study guide that life has given us to make navigating tricky situations a bit easier.

Of course, astrology is by no means a perfect system. But its very imperfection gives astrology much of its charm. For example, part of the system of astrology requires us to use our own judgment to make decisions. Astrology influences the world around us; however, it does not deny us our own capacity for free will. To wit, astrology gives us hints on how to proceed through life; on the other hand, it does not always give us complete answers.

What Astrology Can Help Us With

Think of astrology as a sort of rough guide to a particular path through life. It’s a bit like having a guidebook to a foreign country rather than a guided tour. You’ll have the information in front of you; how you choose to use that information is up to you.

Imagine for a moment that you’re going on vacation to Florence, Italy. Your guidebook tells you what to expect: If you go to the Accademia Gallery, you will be able to see Michelangelo’s statue of David. If you go to the Piazza del Duomo, you’ll see some of the city’s most glorious architecture.

To a large degree, this is what using zodiac signs in dating is like. The zodiac sign will tell you what to expect on a particular path through life; where you choose to go and what you choose to do with that information will be up to you. It’s a bit of fate and a bit of chance all rolled up into one wonderful experience.

Guided by the Stars

With a bit of practice, you’ll also grow adept at spotting certain personality traits amid sympathetic star signs. If you’re interested in people with dorky senses of humor, for example, you might find that dating Aquariuses really works for you.

If serious, career-minded people help you balance out the goofier aspects of your own personality, on the other hand, you might find that Capricorns or Virgos fit the bill as perfect partners. After all, that old saying that “opposites attract” still holds true in many relationships.

Finding a Balance

Using astrology as a kind of map through life can really bring about fun and engaging situations. Indeed, astrology will help you to learn more about yourself and learn more about other people.

However you approach dating and astrology, know that finding more meaningful connections is possible as you make your way through the world. Looking for the good in life can bring about many positive changes to even the most humdrum of existences.

In sum, let astrology be your guidebook to satisfaction in life and satisfaction in dating. The journey will be worth it!

To conclude, here is a horoscope reading for the week:

Aries: Memories of old flames will arise soon. But don’t get bogged down by what could have been: In both its ups and downs, the journey you’ve taken through life has taught you to become who you are.

Taurus: Doubts about your career shouldn’t weigh you down. Now is the time to narrow your focus. Don’t get lost in the details; they’ll just cause you to hesitate.

Gemini: When your dreams try to convey information to you, don’t try to turn that information aside. Dreams, instincts, and wisdom come from the same place.

Cancer: Regret about ending past relationships or friendships might trouble you this week. But don’t lament the idea of putting yourself first.

Leo: Let life reveal its treasures to you this week. But don’t rush what takes time to unfold.

Virgo: Now is a good time to take a hard look at your friendships. Who has been there for you in the past? Who thrives on putting you down or making you feel bad? Sometimes admitting to yourself that some friendships hold you back is a difficult but necessary step in life.

Libra: Find the time to help others. But set firm boundaries. As the saying goes: Caring about others is not the same thing as caring for others.

Scorpio: Don’t let fear box you in. Take time to consider the mental walls that are holding you back from living the life that you actually want to live. Overcoming these obstacles will lead to some of your greatest successes in life.

Sagittarius: Taking a responsible approach to life does not necessarily mean giving up on your dreams. Take the time to balance your dreams and your responsibilities. Adjust your dreams if necessary: To be happy, you need to allow both dreams and responsibilities to coexist. Life without hope is a great burden; life without responsibilities is chaotic. Make both states of being work for you.

Capricorn: Many of the best things in life come to you almost at random. Don’t try to predict how they will appear to you. Keep putting out good energy into the universe; do right by others and make the right choices. Let both time and karma work their magic.

Aquarius: There are times to take a humorous approach to life and times to be serious. Take a moment to consider which situations demand which type of attitude as you make big decisions in the near future. You’ll see big benefits in life if you do!

Pisces: Recognize that the world is chaotic at times. Don’t make yourself responsible for the decisions of others. Accept that some things are out of your hands. Your sense of well-being will improve when you recognize that not everything is your fault.
