ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't get carried away in a moment of fun and frolic with someone you hardly know. A more subdued approach to relationships will help you avoid a situation that could end up being more embarrassing than romantic. Stay sober and use common sense to avoid jarring your reputation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An emotional discussion will lead to personal changes that alter your life. A contract you build with someone you love will lead to a long and happy life together. Don't hesitate to mix the festive season with personal plans you can share and celebrate with friends and relatives.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be honest with yourself as well as those you play with. If you aren't feeling the same about someone who is doting on you, set him or her free. Likewise, if someone isn't treating you right, move on. It's time. Make a commitment or take your love elsewhere.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Say yes to every invitation. 'Tis the season to be jolly, so live it up and get down and boogie. You'll have an impact on others, and those who thought they knew you will take a second look. The vibrant demeanor you share will lead to compliments and love interests.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If something is lacking in your personal life, do something about it. A change of pace will do you good. Get involved in activities and events you enjoy. Don't let someone who doesn't share your interests stop you from living life your way. Surround yourself with like-minded people.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Encounters with old friends will bring you closer to someone you've always had a crush on. A simple gesture will make him or her take notice and give you the opportunity to see if there are any sparks. Don't be surprised if someone you least expect acts jealous.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be careful what you wish for. Being too open about the way you feel will put you in a vulnerable position. Gossip is likely to fly throughout your circle if you are gullible and get involved with someone who is only looking for a brief encounter.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You'll be in a "settle down" mood that will make you want to jump through hoops in order to get one step closer to the stability of being with a lifelong partner. Share your intentions and find out where you stand; your plans will escalate quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Proceed with caution. Nothing will be as it appears. Before you jump headfirst into a situation that is likely to be riddled with misconceptions and secrets, dig in and do background checks to ensure you aren't falling in love with someone living a lie.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take a chance on love. A commitment will change your life and bring you the stability, joy and comfort you desire. The idea of living with someone you can build and share memories with will encourage you to say what's on your mind and make your dreams come true.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to getting ahead and making personal changes that will make you feel good about who you are and what you've accomplished. Having greater confidence will discourage partners who want to control you and invite those looking for equality in a relationship. Don't settle for less.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ready, set, go. Love is looming, and the chance to get involved with someone who is looking for the same things in life as you is looking good. Open communication will help you weed out the best candidate for a long and healthy relationship.
