LOVESCOPE by Eugenia Last

     ARIES (March 21-April 19): An unexpected encounter will take you by surprise. Your desire for spontaneity and fun-loving people will result in future plans that excite you. Your adventurous attitude will invite interest from someone just as outgoing and free-spirited as yourself. Participation will be your ticket to new beginnings.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Either go back and take a second look at a past relationship or let go and set yourself free to find someone new. Making comparisons or dreaming about what might have been is not conducive to finding love. Make a choice and put an end to the stalemate.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Honesty will be the deciding factor when it comes to long-lasting love. You’ll attract partners easily, but living up to your promises or being with someone who is truthful about his or her past will not be as easy as you think. Communication should be your focus.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your creative energy will attract unusual suitors, but before you fall for someone portraying to be exactly what you want in a partner, consider how much you know about this person and if he or she is trying to be who you want instead of showing their true colors.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your unpredictable nature will excite someone who can be just as spontaneous as you are. Mental and physical stimulation will top the charts, leading to events and activities that will determine how compatible you are. Competition will surface, and an entertaining pursuit of happiness will take flight.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Careful what you wish for. You may think you want excitement, but when it comes right down to it, stability and security will be what make you feel happy and content. Knowing your partner inside out is in your best interest. Don’t be gullible; ask direct questions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Open up about what you want in life and what you expect when it comes to love, romance and commitment. Getting off on the right foot instead of letting chemistry take over and worrying about what you have in common after the fact is encouraged.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to love. You may be attracted to someone unusual, but when the novelty wears off, you will find yourself in a dilemma if you have opened your heart and your home to someone who doesn’t fit your lifestyle.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your outgoing, fun-loving attitude will attract a lot of attention, but before you bask in the shower of admiration, consider the motives behind all the praise. Someone will be misleading as well as a poor influence on you if you are too trusting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t settle on someone before you get to know him or her. Either you or the person you are interested in will have a change of heart based on your differences, background or lifestyle. Rethink your plans for domestic bliss, and look for the real deal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A commitment will change your life and send you on a journey that will encourage personal growth as well as a sense of belonging. Step up, say what’s on your mind and start making plans that will lead to a stable future. Romance is in the stars.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen, observe and check for indiscretion and honesty. You will be dealing with someone who may be a lot of fun but also incapable of commitment. Think twice before you give in to emotional, physical or financial temptation. Avoid getting into a long-distance relationship.
