Lovescope For December 16, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look at what you have, not what you don't. Consider what and who makes you happy. The person who can stimulate your mind will help you grow personally and professionally. Partnership is about loyalty, support and sharing the bad with the good. Aim for equality and common interests.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love, romance and settling into a relationship that makes you feel comfortable and good about who you are should be your goal. Don't waste time. If you find someone who helps make you a better person, don't let him or her slip away. Nurture, respect and honor your relationship.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Honesty is an important part of any relationship, but this week in particular listen carefully to what potential partners or someone you are with says to you. You will discover whether you are making the best decision moving forward.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You'll be swept off your feet by someone who seems to magically have everything you want in a forever partner. Enjoy the moment and let things develop naturally. Love and romance are highlighted, and socializing is encouraged, along with being brave enough to introduce yourself to that special someone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Watch your step when it comes to love. You'll be attracted to someone quite different from you, and if you are too busy trying to impress with big talk and swagger, you may not notice that the person you are paying all this attention to has ulterior motives. Proceed with caution.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When it comes to love, you won't have to look far. An emotional attachment to someone who has always been there for you will turn out to have qualities you adore. Walk away from the flirtatious socializers and toward someone with substance and something tangible to offer.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Experience will help you make better choices. Don't feel you have to settle down with the first person who makes an offer. Enjoy the company of others and build solid friendships. When the time and the person are right for you, good things will happen.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll be attracted to someone unusual or the person who can offer you a different and exciting lifestyle. However, before you jump in wholeheartedly, make sure you bring just as much to the relationship in order to maintain your voice and the self-respect required to form an equal partnership.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let someone from your past fool you into thinking that he or she has changed their ways. You'll do better if you get involved with someone new who wants to build a relationship based on what you both have to offer. Love is a two-way street.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone who makes you think and challenges and stimulates you mentally, emotionally and physically will lead you to make a commitment that will cement you together. Don't waste time; showing confidence and knowing what you want will be a game changer when it comes to romance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Talk, talk and talk some more. Getting to know someone inside out will be the key to whether you want to pursue something serious. Adaptability, innovation and intelligence will be key when picking the right partner. Someone who shares your thoughts and makes you laugh will be ideal.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll have plenty of options, but not all will be the same. An attraction to someone who is vibrant may cause you to overlook someone who has more to offer. Let your intuition guide you, and don't waste time with someone who is aggressive and self-centered.
