Love Horoscopes – August 2, 2013
Aries: You feel quite loving and warm, with a desire to give and receive affection and appreciation to those that hold your emotional interest. The problem with enjoying that warmth is the dilemma you have having with your loved one. Sometimes we can just be together with our loved ones in silence, but today it is necessary to talk. This may be difficult, as you know you are on very rough ground over a certain issue. You need to make that first step to bridge the gulf that feels as though it is getting wider and wider. Use your innate courage and just jump. It won’t be as bad as you fear, and will provide much needed relief for both of you. The warmth and love you feel will transfer to the conversation had and help to heal any wounds.
Taurus: When you are fixated on something, there is no letting go for you. But today, you really need to exercise some flexibility. Although you are strong in your convictions, even you can get a little rattled when you are faced with the kind of predicament you will have on your plate today. It will need some careful handling, and more than a little diplomacy. You are capable of this, but you MUST watch out for your stubborn attitude that can put a block on any progress. Also, all consuming fantasies have their place, but building possible dreams now can make the impossible one walk right in later on. One dream at a time , small hopes can compound and become great manifestations. Be patience and have faith.
Gemini: Trust is the foundation to any and all types of relationships and today, you will be reminded just how sacred it truly is. You won’t or hadn’t mean to give away your sweethearts secrets but in the haste of the moment and in the excitement of having something interesting to say, you may have let a few confidential matters slip out. Now everyone knows and your loved one feels hurt. It’s time to smooth some ruffled feathers. As you make things right, you will discover new things about your mate and yourself. The degree of harmony and solidarity in your relationship will increase while you two rebuild trust and respect. Socializing as a couple should prove to be very rewarding during this time and actually enhance your more intimate moments.
Cancer: Romance blooms in many ways, and for you today it is likely to blossom in a very primal, lusty manner. Your physical needs should be allowed to take the forefront. Today is not the day to end up in one of your darker moods as the day progresses. Before you move forward towards your romantic desires, get some realistic perspective on what is actually happening. It isn’t as if anything much has gone wrong, but more that your fears have taken you into areas that are not entirely the truth. You really need to start looking at some positives rather than the negatives. The more spiritual aspects of love will have their moments, but today a wild, uninhibited frolic is in order. You won’t get to that frolic unless you remember to think positively NOT negatively.
Leo: This is a period of critical decisions and transition. A major change in your life can occur now (ending a long-term relationship or beginning a new one, etc.). You could benefit from some very constructive thinking, and certainly some quiet reflection today. In fact, it is not unusual for several important changes of this nature to be occurring. You need to clear up just how much of the current conflict with your loved one is actually your fault, and how much is attributable to them. Remind them and yourself that it does take two to tango. But the threads that create that knot of tension need unraveling very carefully in order to reach a state of clarity. Do not point blame, start off by what is your fault before you tell them theirs.
Virgo: For those of you attached, you may be reaching an impasse in your relationship. Up to this point you have become a little distant, maybe a bit stand-offish and quite possibly even superior. Today, you need to make the effort to do some talking and if that is impossible, then create the possibility. Just because you are frightened of the truth doesn’t mean you should hide from it! Some of you may bump into someone unexpected today. Regardless of how you feel about this person, don’t blow them off. For whatever reason, the universe has put them in that particular place and time for you to meet. Don’t just assume it’s a chance meeting; there is such a thing as destiny. The reason for this encounter will be vocalized soon enough.
Libra: While sticks and stones may break your bones, words can also cause a fair bit of damage. So whether you are talking, or find yourself on the receiving end, you will need to handle yourself with great care. You have the opportunity today to actually make things work out very well, but you will need to draw on all your diplomacy. Avoid digging into your stock of swearwords. Opportunities for friendship, pleasant associations and enjoyable social interactions occur now. Personal relationships are harmonious and rewarding. Take some time today to let someone know how much you appreciate them, it’s a good bet they’ll want to show you just how much they appreciate you to.
Scorpio: It is surprising just how many things can be solved by talking certain issues through step-by-step. You may feel justified in your present outlook, and also feel justified in staying that way. But it does not offer the best long-term solution for either of you if you refuse to budge. A certain fear is haunting you; bring it to light and the fear will melt away. Passion and gut reactions are where your emotions may be today, and you could be inclined to act on the dictates of emotion and desire rather than reason. You could be in a fighting mood both emotionally and physically. Your relationships with your family and the women you are closest to are likely to be uncomfortable today.
Sagittarius: You feel especially attractive today. This makes you a friendly Archer, so friendly that the warmth you radiate is noticed and appreciated in more than one way. Love, relationships, beauty, and pleasure are important factors for you now. This energy will either help attract a new romance or friendship to you today or an old or current one may take a turn for the better. For some of you, today you need to deal with the problem you may be facing a little more diplomatically than you have been. When conversations become too weighty, you have the tendency to just move on your merry way. Rather than pretending it will fade away by tonight, try actually listening to what your sweetheart has to say. This will help make it right and heal any hurt.
Capricorn: You may be feeling like the underdog lately so you are spending quality time with your dark side right now. Sorry to burst your cozy dark bubble but this is a time to explore your restlessness for new emotional experience. If you can only see the light side, and apply a little of this perspective, your whole situation will move into a new phase. There is optimism and even faith, and a tendency to take chances at the deepest emotional levels. If you just embrace the energy surrounding you, you will feel that anything is possible if you set your sights high enough. For those of you attached, there is anything wrong with the relationship; more that you are just looking at it from a dour point of view. Break out of this mood Capricorn, quit missing out!
Aquarius: You understand the principle of fair discussion, yet you can still be extremely obstinate in your approach to relationships, especially when emotions threaten to get out of hand. Right now you may feel the walls are closing in on you but you want to connect deeply with your loved one. Today you need to look at this problem of not wanting to be cramped, of wanting to be in a relationship, yet wanting to be free. If you can see the double bind, you may well improve matters. The need to give and take affection is strong in you at the moment. Do so, connect with your sweetheart and try to make the best out of what is going on but don’t get too pushy or effusive or you may chase them away. Subtle gestures will get you the results you desire.
Pisces: Today it is time to have a constructive conversation. This is a time to get others’ opinions and feedback about yourself and what you are doing in regards to your life at this time. Have that talk that you’ve been meaning to for some while, the one you have put off time and time again. Things can only get better if you can overcome that initial wave of fear. By doing so you will gradually gain the confidence you need. Relationships of all types are energetic now. Cooperation, compromise, and adjustments to others’ viewpoints are issues that demand your attention. If you want to enjoy your lovers company, then let the process of true understanding begin. You may encounter a person who will be especially creative or influential in your life.
