Lovescope for August 19, 2012

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't take love for granted. You will find yourself in a sticky situation if you aren't willing to compromise. If you are fun to be with, someone special will want to be with you. Travel, socializing and staying upbeat will bring good results.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Speak up and let your true feelings be heard. Honesty and an affectionate response will bring good results. Let your actions show how much you are willing to give in order to get in return. Strive for equality and loyalty first and foremost.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You'll have plenty of opportunity when it comes to love and romance. Make sure your intentions are honorable before you engage in an intimate encounter with someone you meet. Leading someone on to make gains in other areas of your life will backfire.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be careful not to let someone's powerful personality control you emotionally, physically or financially. Take heed of advice given by close friends who recognize the problems you may be heading into should you bend to a lover's demands. Don't be bulldozed by charm and insincere gestures of friendliness.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your playful, unpredictable nature will grab someone's interest. Consider with whom you are dealing before you move forward. Jealousy and ownership may play a role in the outcome of the connection you make. Don't offer anything that you may want back in the future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A romantic encounter will develop if you participate in activities or organized events. It will be easy to figure out who is best suited to you by the responses you receive. Step back from an aggressive suitor, and you'll notice someone very special watching you from afar.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't be fooled by someone using emotional blackmail to entice you. Concentrate on people who truly enjoy the same activities and share the same humor as you. The partners who play together stay together. Don't allow someone very different from you lead you astray.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Refuse to settle for someone you have only a physical attraction towards. Mental and emotional symmetry is equally as important, especially as a relationship ages. A sudden change of heart can leave you in an awkward position. Don't be too eager to make a commitment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will stabilize your life and bring about significant changes to the way you live if you open your heart to someone who shares your goals. Don't judge an individual by looks alone. Give the person you enjoy spending time with most a chance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You'll be drawn to someone who is difficult to figure out. Before you become too attached, make sure you are up for an unpredictable roller coaster ride. Have fun, but keep your distance when it comes to taking on responsibilities that are likely to become tiresome.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Actions speak louder than words. Show how much you care if someone unique pops into your life. Look for the person willing to experiment with you, and you will find the perfect partner for a long-lasting and adventuresome relationship.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Discard any baggage you've been carrying with you, and open up to someone who is ready to offer you the world. A strong connection to someone wanting a stable and secure future is waiting for you -- just notice that you've already met your match.
