SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2018
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Spare your reputation. Take a pass on anyone pressuring or challenging you. Don’t try to be someone you are not. Looks alone are not a good foundation for longevity in a relationship. If someone can’t stimulate you mentally and keep up to you physically, take a pass.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Wanting the same thing as someone you love will not be as simple as it sounds. Discuss your intentions and find out exactly what your potential partner wants to accomplish as well. If you aren’t on the same page, one of you will end up being disappointed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll appeal to many, but if you aren’t honest about your past, present or your intentions, you will find it difficult to maintain a relationship that is meaningful. Playing the romantic chase game may be thrilling, but it won’t be fulfilling. Only pursue the person you feel is “the one.”
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Who you think you want to pursue will not live up to your expectations. Charm can certainly grab your attention, but when it comes to living with someone who puts him or herself first, it makes life difficult. Look for equality, and be open about your needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Love will come to you. It won’t be hard to find someone who shares your sentiments and cares about the same things you do. Get involved in an event or activity you enjoy. You’ll end up in a deep, meaningful discussion with someone quite special.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have to let someone from your past go before you can move forward. Hanging on to a relationship that isn’t good for you will discourage potential partners from making a move. A change of scenery will give you a new lease on life and help you move forward.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Being too accommodating will send the wrong signal. If you want someone to treat you as an equal, present yourself as one. Be vocal about your likes and dislikes as well as your life goals. Working as a team player can lead to a meaningful forever relationship.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Venture into unknown territory. Try new things and meet people who have something unique to offer. Getting a broad view of what’s available and the type of person who fits into your world and brings out the best in you is within reach.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you don’t share your true feelings, you can’t expect the person you spend time with to know what you want, like or plan to do. Don’t skirt issues that have to do with commitment and family planning. Finding out if you share the same life goals matters.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone will not reveal his or her intentions. Moving too quickly and trusting that someone is in love with you solely and not for what you have or can offer is likely to lead to a big disappointment. Assume nothing; slow down until you know your love is being reciprocated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Turn on the charm, use your intelligence to grab someone’s attention and see if he or she has what it takes to hold your interest. A quick wit, twinkle in the eye and a willingness to try new things will lead to a new adventure and a commitment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Attend functions that will bring you in contact with people you haven’t seen for some time. Reconnecting with someone from your past will be exhilarating. Sparks will fly and the feelings you once shared will encourage you to be more accommodating and understanding this time round.
