SUNDAY, AUGUST 5, 2018
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Love is in the air, along with socializing, flirting and making changes in your personal life that encourage more time to get out with people who share similar lifestyles. Single-parent events, taking part in a cause you care about and being responsible will help you find a suitable partner.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Looking for love in all the wrong places will not bring you closer to a forever relationship. Inconsistency, uncertainty and indulgent behavior will come between you and whomever you meet if you spend too much time frequenting the bars or other such establishments. Quality places of entertainment are favored.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye and engage in interesting conversations with people who share one of your interests. You’ll attract love if you take interest courses, attend retreats or travel. Your friendly demeanor will make it easy for potential partners to approach you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your emotional sensitivity will appeal to someone who tends to be dramatic. Before you get too involved with someone who latches on to you, show reserve and check to see if he or she tends to be excessive financially, emotionally or physically. Protect against becoming someone’s keeper.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Flipping from one partner to another because you are bored will not help you add stability to your life. Think twice before you let the rush of love take over and lead to a one-night stand. You deserve better, and if you hold out for the real deal, you will find true love.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your practical approach to love will help you bring about positive change when it comes to relationships. The person you feel helps to calm you down and brings out the best in you should be considered carefully. Commitment is within reach if you share your intentions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep busy, get involved in volunteer work or helping others, and share your thoughts and future plans. Being open and direct regarding your expectations will attract someone who is as intent as you are when it comes to finding love, making a commitment and choosing a mutual lifestyle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let someone mesmerize you with big talk and expensive taste. When it comes to personal relationships, let your intuition guide you. Observation will help you disclose whether someone is out of control, a player or someone who may be worth pursuing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your defense up and judge the potential partners you meet on how well they treat friends and family. You can tell a lot from the way someone acts toward others. If you detect exaggeration or a lack of information about his or her past or present, take a pass.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t go for the fancy packaging when searching for a partner. Find out what makes the person you are attracted to tick. If you can’t have a good conversation, life will become boring pretty fast if the object of your desire has nothing in common with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll attract all sorts of interest, but with the good comes the bad. Choose the person who is a good influence. It may be fun in the moment, but a life full of worrying and indulgence will leave you feeling like a parental figure, not a lover and companion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotions will skyrocket, and your options will be plentiful. Make a wish list for what you want in a partner, and look for the person who best represents your dream partner. Sharing your feelings will capture the attention of someone as sensitive and intuitive as you are.
