Lovescope for February 26, 2012

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make a move. Whether you're making a commitment or breaking away from one, it's important to size up your situation and make the choice that leads to long-term happiness. Love is apparent, but choosing the right person may take courage and initiation on your part.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't let impulse drag you into a secret encounter that can incriminate you. Love may be tempting, but being with someone for the wrong reason or at the wrong time will lead to heartache. Don't jeopardize your reputation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You aren't likely to think too far ahead when it comes to love relationships. You might entice someone who isn't willing to let go of you. Avoid anyone who appears possessive or is asking you to make promises that you aren't ready to keep.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your interests will lead to someone you can relate to openly and honestly. The connections you make will allow you to build a friendship that shows promise to become more intimate as time passes. A slow courtship will lead to a long-lasting relationship.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll attract attention. Don't be too quick to decide with whom you want to spend time. People who are busy and may not have as much time to dote on you may have more to offer in the end. Don't judge a book by its cover.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotional problems will make it difficult for you to choose a good partner. You cannot buy love, and you shouldn't be willing to foot the bill in order to entice someone to spend time with you. A partner's honesty appears to be questionable.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your heart is in the right place, but you must be careful not to let anyone take advantage of your kindness. Stick close to home and to people who are focused on building greater security by being responsible and loyal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your unusual way of doing things will attract the interest of someone as unique as you. Greater involvement in creative projects or networking groups will lead to better connections and long-term relationships. Love is in abundance, but your choice of partner should be easy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have plenty of charisma and charm, but not everyone trusts what you have to offer. Look for a partner who is just as outgoing as you, and you will have met your match. Equality will be the key to your relationship happiness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Stick with who you know and trust. Don't get sidetracked by someone who appears to be exciting and accomplished who will probably turn out to be a big talker with little substance. Hold out for the person who can truly mirror you every step of the way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An old lover will remind you of what you want and need from a relationship. Strive for what's most important to you, and you will find someone who can fill those shoes. Your past experience will not let you down. Follow your heart and your instincts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll be feeling passionate, but that doesn't necessarily mean you will end up with the right partner. Don't make promises when you aren't sure of the outcome. Bide your time and see where things lead before making a commitment.
