You may secretly crave romance, if not true love, and go in search of it. You'll be careful as well as patient because you know that it won't be easy and the world isn't always a friendly place. Most unpleasant or stressful people you can avoid or merely defuse with gentle but firm tact. You may seem too independent for people you're drawn to, but stay true to yourself and quietly persist. You may meet someone argumentative in August, but in time you'll see how much this person truly cares. Be openhearted and not rash. Have a deeply enriching year!
