Love Horoscopes – August 3, 2013
Aries: Emotional self control and feelings of distance and aloneness could overwhelm you today. Whatever opinions you may hold, you can’t escape the fact that everything is extremely changeable. Where your deepest bonds and relationships are concerned, you may find that the mood is one of conflict. It is unlikely that you will be able to resolve this without having to compromise in some respect. But are you willing to do so? Or do you merely wish to stake your claim? This energy leaves you coolly objective about your friends and loved ones and their shortcomings. You are probably being a bit too critical and hard on them right now so try to loosen up and realize we are all in this journey together. Life does not come with a book.
Taurus: You may feel as though there is a cloud hanging over you or that lightning is about to strike. Worse yet through this emotional store you feel uncomfortable in your own skin and that you have no place to run for shelter. Thankfully this dark cloud is merely fleeting; soon it will clear the air so the sun can shine again. What you want to do is slow down today because you might be inclined to jump to the wrong conclusions at this time and say or even do things which you will regret later. You may suddenly decide to act on some idea or plan you have been considering, which can be good as long as you don’t move so abruptly and quickly that you override other people’s say in the matter.
Gemini: The little things are often avoidable and inconsequential in the grand scheme of things but it’s the big things we can steer clear from. So don’t worry about having to avoid an argument today, worry about being able to avoid having a major fallout. Wiggling out of tricky situations is nothing new to you, especially where your feelings about a certain person are concerned but you will have to openly admit a few deeply personal truths to yourself. Perhaps you need a little space to get things clear in your head. Thankfully the energy surrounding you makes you rather pleasant, supportive and more interested in the similarities than in the differences between yourself and those special others in your life.
Cancer: You have an opportunity now to see what keeps you from being really close to others. Your feelings for friends and loved ones, and your emotional responses to life in general are deeper and more intense during this time. The need to share, to give and receive love, and to be accepted and wanted is very strong. You could be tempted to draw your protective shell around you and hide out in your den of cynicism, refusing to come out for anybody. Sadly, you can’t stay like that forever. Somewhere along the line you have to make a move. If you can just risk coming out in the open, things may resolve far more quickly. Today you will feel just how sensitive you are and how to rid yourself of it by bringing it out in the open or simply letting it go.
Leo: During this time marriage, contracts, and partnerships are seen as the cornerstone to success and happiness for you. Because of this you have done what you can to smooth things out between you and your partner. Now you find that you may have missed a few wrinkles as there is a degree of tension in the air today between you and your loved one. The conflict you two feel between each other could actually help to make a breakthrough in your relationship, rather than breaking apart. Get your creative juices pumping and see what magic you can generate. Now is as good a time to start manifesting that special person if you aren’t involved with someone else yet. The love of your life is out there, you need to be ready to meet him or her.
Virgo: Today you may want to sit back and reflect, maybe attempt to understand your own situation and just how you feel about yourself. Emotions, in particular the feelings of those around you, may be made very clear. Life certainly has its ups and downs, as you well know. But what you need to understand is that beyond the cloud that hangs over your horizon, there is a rainbow of extraordinary beauty. All you need to do is to take some practical steps to ensure that when it rains you don’t get too wet. Whatever choices or decisions fall your way today, look after your own interests. Ponder the why’s and how’s of the relationship you’re in now. If you can improve it then it’s time to think how to go about doing it.
Libra: Family, home, relatives, and partnerships may play a bigger part in your life during this time. You may feel an energy of nostalgia and domesticity now emphasizing a need for security and a sense of roots. Today, you need to make choices that validate your most heart-felt concerns. You are so good at compromising that you have made it into an art form. However, even today’s choice between two very different courses of action needs to be regarded with a little more than indifference to your own needs. It is essential that you think seriously about the way forward for you, not for your partner. Some of you may be losing yourself in your relationship, now is the time to put you back together and become whole again.
Scorpio: For some of you, life may feel like a soap opera with all the drama and emotion swirling about. It is enough to drain you completely of compassion and positive energy. You do not want to be at the center of a major confrontation, but because you have a previous track record for breaking down problems into their respective issues, you are dragged in kicking and screaming. If you or your loved one have any chance at working this out, you must try be as sensitive as possible, where possible. For those of you just starting out in a relationship, an element of mischievous fun is the very thing to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Your ability to put your finger on what makes your lovers heart go pitter pat is what it’s all about today.
Sagittarius: Sometimes you over estimate when you should really underestimate and vice versa. You may think you know how something is going to progress – but do you really? Today you do need to be aware of the potential for change, which can be considerable in the situation that you are facing. For many of you, heightened appetites of all types are a natural emotion this time of the month. Variety is the spice of life, intensity the sweetness, and you will have every opportunity to fulfill them. During this time you should enjoy yourself and the people around you. Just take care not to take anyone or even yourself too seriously right now as it is more a energy of play and adventure rather than seriousness and obligation.
Capricorn: A sudden event can prove to be a very positive way of moving you in just the right direction. Your emotions are running so high that you need to be careful not to go overboard. You could be happily proceeding along a certain route, when suddenly something spins you round and round, throwing you off on a new tangent. Whatever transpires today between you and your partner, be sure that the changes do both your hearts some good and bring you closer together. Go ahead and express your feelings, but don’t drown others in them. Keep in mind that not everyone is your friend, and that sharing your intimate feelings with the wrong person may well come back to hurt you later.
Aquarius: You don’t need to use a sledgehammer to crack a nut, nor do you need to use such strong means to bring about a resolution between you and your lover. You are the first one to feel that a situation merits tough love, but in this case it may be better to use a more gentle method so go out of your way to be extra kind to your lover. Now is not the time to challenge things and make the conflict worse. Because you might be more distressed than usual over any disharmony in personal relationships, take a break today if you can. It might be a good idea to avoid any serious discussions or real disagreements with others right now. Keep them in mind for a later time, avoidance for a short time might be best.
Pisces: You wouldn’t be more shocked by the events of the day if they were to sneak up and bite you on the ass. What you need to do is figure out why the event even happened in the first place and what you can learn from it. The problem is not impossible to solve but it will involve you and your partner looking at where you have become too set in your ways. Your old boundaries have been shattered and you need to see where this leaves you both. Talk between you and your romantic interest is likely to be both frequent and rewarding at this time. Verbally the two of you are so in sync that sharing ideas can lead to dreams and goals worth chasing. Lighthearted flirting with one another should lead to more romantic moments later.
