Love in 2017 – Don’t Go Overboard

Monkeys are usually great romantic partners and enjoy lots of attention from other people. Their passion and charm attracts potential partners like bees to a honey pot. Romance occurs frequently and this can cause problems in 2017, particularly if you are already in a committed partnership.

This year also brings many parties and celebrations with friends and family. Monkeys treat all events as opportunities to meet potential new partners if they are uncommitted. Your social life will be abuzz this year with many new faces joining your network. As far as finding the ‘right one’ it could get complicated if Monkeys have too many balls in the air. So take it slowly and don’t spread yourself too thinly across multiple partners at the same time or you could be in for fireworks that end up burning you.

Your friends will remain loyal as long as you don’t go too far. Sometimes you could be crying on their shoulders if you’ve gone out on a ledge with someone who isn’t the person of your heart’s true desire.
