Lovescope for February 19, 2012

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be in a loving mood, but that's no reason to be with just anyone. Mental stimulation is every bit as important as physical. Hold out for the partner who can dance with your mind, add to your laughter and lure your imagination to new heights.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dedicating your time to those less fortunate than you will impress someone who takes an interest in you. Follow through and get to know this person better, and you will see how much you have in common. Love and romance are in the stars.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will have trouble connecting with the right partner. The people you choose aren't likely to have good intentions. Don't believe everything you are told. There is a good chance someone will beef up his or her importance to impress you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be the aggressor. If you see someone you like, put a smile on your face and make your move. Your charm will shine through, making you difficult to resist. Inviting someone to share an intimate meal at your place will show your honorable intentions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You cannot buy love, so don't bother wasting your money. Chances are good that as soon as you capture the attention of someone you've been pursuing, you will lose interest -- along with the gifts and money you've spent trying to win the prize.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll be drawn into an emotional situation with someone with whom you have a love-hate relationship. Analyze the pros and cons, and you'll discover that what you dislike most is the uncertainty and insecurity you feel when you are with this person.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Love is a changing playground. Make sure you know what you want before you drag someone into your world. It's better to take your time and be sure than to have to let someone down when you have a change of heart.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your mind wander, express your thoughts openly and discuss your plans. Someone who shares your interests will fit into your plans personally, emotionally and intimately like a missing piece to a jigsaw puzzle. Love is within reach. Seize the moment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stick close to home and to the people who know and understand you best. You will attract troublemakers eager to misinterpret you and mess with your personal life. Problems with someone trying to lure you into something questionable should be expected.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Consider getting back together or reuniting with someone you either dated in your past or wanted to date but never got the chance. The timing is right to rekindle a flame or share your past regrets. Rectify a loss or a missed romantic opportunity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): New, exciting and stimulating is the name of the game. Incorporate greater diversity or experimentation into a relationship you find bland to spice things up. Search for someone who shares your fantasies. Being with the right partner will change your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make the first move. Lay your passionate desires on the line. It's important to know you are with someone who can match you step for step, both behind closed doors and in public. Communication will lead to an exquisitely well-matched relationship.
