Lovescope for December 16, 2012

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need to spice up your love life. Put time and effort into a more approachable look, and don't be afraid to make the first move. How you express your likes and dislikes will determine the type of lover you attract. Be honest, direct and inviting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Search for someone who shares your values, not someone who makes a big splash. Common interests are a must, so enjoy the hobbies and activities that excite you the most, and you will find a partner you can grow old with instead of someone just looking for an adventure.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You'll have plenty of opportunity to meet and greet people of interest, but before you jump in, do a background check. You are likely to attract someone who already has a romantic tie to someone else. Be wise and do your research before you become playful.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your serious mood and overly protective attitude will make it difficult to find love. A more aloof and less needy approach will help you attract someone who will enjoy your nurturing qualities after your relationship has a chance to develop. You must become a friend first.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are hot, and everyone will gravitate to your side. Beware of the person trying to curtail your freedom or occupy too much of your time. It's nice to be adored but not so nice being possessed by a jealous lover. Pick and choose your partner wisely.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spending time fixing up your digs or considering your next move physically, emotionally or financially will far exceed any interaction you have in the romance department. Go out with friends, but keep your distance from anyone bragging or trying to impress you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your sophistication will attract someone who is rough around the edges. You may be inclined to get entangled in an adventure, but before you decide to take part, find out more about your enticer's intentions. You may find yourself trapped in a situation that has little maneuverability.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your desire to settle down if you are single or to move on if you are in a difficult relationship will escalate. Let your intuition guide you, and you will not be disappointed by the results you get. Be true to you and to your emotions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll have too many choices and a desire for excitement and adventure that will make it difficult for you to be with one person unless, of course, the person you choose is a mirror image of who you are and what you are offering.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't mix business with pleasure. You will find someone eager to spend time with you but the motives behind the adoration being shown will be questionable. Stick to someone you know inside-out instead of taking a risk with someone you know little about.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't feel the need to make a promise to someone. Being upfront about the way you feel and where you are emotionally will give you far greater freedom to formulate and build a relationship with someone better suited to you and your lifestyle.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Being overpowered by someone's innuendoes and romantic promises will lead to an unhealthy, one-sided relationship. Refuse to let anyone treat you as an object or possession. You cannot let chemistry lead you in a demeaning direction. Take a time-out and rebuild your confidence.
