Even if you’re hoping that the new year will bring exciting professional and financial news, there’s always room for romance. This is what your zodiac sign says about how you can attract love in 2018 so that you can find someone to share your success with.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
This year, you have to learn that romance is about give and take. In order to gain the trust of others, you must express personal feelings of your own. This does not mean you have to give up your independence, but instead you should prevent your autonomous side from hindering a connection with a potential partner.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
Although you are quite the romantic, this side of you doesn’t always like the company of others. Within these next few months it’s vital for you to welcome potential lovers into your heart so that they, too, can experience your compassionate spirit. Put yourself out there and allow yourself to be pursued because you’ll find that this effort does wonders for your love life.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
You love to live life in the fast lane, but if you move too quickly you might miss out on what’s in front of you. This upcoming year you have to slow down in order to notice the potential around you, and to let them notice you. You’ll find that you don’t have to go too far to meet someone who you can share your incredible energy with.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
You’ll never achieve the love you deserve in 2018 without learning how to compromise. Accept the fact that welcoming someone new into your life means that change is inevitable, and this change is actually a good thing. The moment you realize that you don’t have everything figured out yet is when you’ll be able to make room in your life for romance.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Your social nature means that you don’t have a problem meeting people, you instead must learn to choose people. You probably bounce between romantic possibilities, which is only helpful until it’s not. Stop overthinking your future, go with your gut and understand that attracting a new partner doesn’t mean that anything is set in stone.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
This might sound cliché, but you have to learn to love yourself before you can let others love you. For you, step one is to acknowledge your desirable qualities, followed by understanding that you’re allowed to reveal parts of yourself on your own terms. You don’t have to spill all of your secrets on a first date, but you do have to suspend your suspicions a little bit.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
In 2018, you have to welcome the possibility that people can live up to your expectations. Stop writing people off due to your narcissistic tendencies and allow others to both praise and challenge you. In order to attract love, you’ll have to let your guard down and let your emotional side shine through.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
If you want love this year, you have to get out of your comfort zone and pursue the things you want. Use your intelligence to locate the perfect partner and then try your best to ignore your critical tendencies. Stop thinking in terms of what people see in you, and instead focus on what you see in others in order to find someone worth your time.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
Tell yourself that you’re no longer going to accept bad dates next year just because you’re afraid of the word “no.” Don’t worry about hurting people if you’re not interested, as this will attract love in all the wrong places. Make connections that bring you happiness.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
As a Scorpio, attracting love is entirely up to your ability to trust. If you’re prone to doubt and have a hard time opening up, you’ll completely jeopardize your search for romance. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how the results you get just by taking small steps towards accessing your emotions and presenting them to others.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
You have a habit of brushing off those who want to get close to you, but this will only hurt your chances of finding love this upcoming year. Understanding that romance can provide you with a partner and not a social constraint will guide you towards the courage to open your mind up to romance.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
As January begins to come into focus, remember that you need to let loose in order to let love in. Being all work and no play will grant you professional success, but it may cause you to fall short of some much needed romance. Apply your responsible outlook to your love life in order to let it bloom and let others know that you’re emotionally available.
