Love Horoscopes – August 7, 2013
Aries: All is fair in love and war, or is it? If you are attached you may find it difficult to look past your contribution to the effort that your partner is getting credit for. You may feel that it was all thanks to what you may have achieved. Really look at the situation, wasn’t it a joint effort of sorts? Try to give credit where it is due, and also humbly take the blame when it falls on you. This will open a new chapter in your life together. If you are unattached, waiting for that fantasy love to become a reality, it could happen but not if you’re sitting at home watching the television. If you want it you are just going to have to make an effort to go out and find it! So make some plans to be places and meet people today that could get you noticed.
Taurus: Your appreciation for life in general is heightened. This comes at the perfect time considering you things in your relationship might be a little sketchy; you need this change in perspective. Often it is the little things that make us get on each other’s nerves. We manage to cope with the big things very well. What you may need to watch for today is that you don’t let a certain habit or defensive attitude get in the way of seeing your beloved as a person who is really seeking to be cherished. Open the door and let in more love. You should further capitalize on this positive energy by maybe buying a bouquet of flowers for someone special or a small token of love. This is truly a great time to just sit back and enjoy what you have, to love and live life.
Gemini: There is a chance to understand those around you and to have a special time with someone you love. What you need to find in your current partnership the balance between fault finding and seeing the actual truth about some things that may need correction. Keep in mind that no one likes to be told what to do, nor do they like to be ignored. If you do this from the heart, you will move forward in a very positive way. A new area of enjoyment will open for both of you. Lovers, children, and other people or things dear to your heart are emphasized at this time. General good feeling and a sense of support and harmony make this a happy time. Make the effort and you will find what you are looking for.
Cancer: Numerous phone calls, emails, networking, errands, or discussions bring you into contact with others. It’s going to be a busy day for you as you’ll want to communicate and get in touch with those closest to your heart. One of those people may very well be your lover who has recently hurt your feelings. The hard exterior you have crafted has protected your heart form most of the impact but is it preventing you from healing this minor rift? It may help if you could separate any hard feelings today by daring to expose your more sensitive side. You may be afraid of being hurt, but if you don’t take a risk, how will they ever really know why this affected you so? This is also a good time to brainstorm with friends, share ideas and long term goals.
Leo: Today one door may slam shut, while another one begins to open. With so much potential in your romantic life, you cannot afford to let an incident from the past mar your happiness now. Be sure that the door to your past is firmly locked before fully opening this new door. Only then can you proceed free of hindrances, knowing there are no ghosts waiting to haunt you. If you don’t walk away it is possible that any suppressed feelings can be transformed into compulsive actions. If so then it may be a good time to question motives, both your own and everyone else’s. If you just have to do or say anything, perhaps you shouldn’t. Take a deep breath first, count to ten and say it to yourself first. Think hard before you get too pushy.
Virgo: If you have to tie your lover to the bed (and not in the fun way) to make them stay around, isn’t that telling you something? If you have to use hardened attitudes to manipulate a certain situation, then this is not going to produce a miracle of love, either. If you are willing to admit that underneath the cold behavior is an attitude of fear, then you may instead win real understanding. If you cannot or will not then now is the time to move on. If you are looking for someone special to compliment your life and make long term goals with, the energy is out there for interesting encounters. Accept any offers for social gatherings that may come up. Look your best because you’ll never know just who might show up to rock your world.
Libra: You become more clear and objective about personal matters and your relationships. Recently your partner may seem to exhibit some cold and selfish behavior. Don’t be tempted to take their attitude too seriously. Try to understand things from their point of view and you will see what is going on is brought on by insecurity and perhaps fear. Make them feel secure and chase away those demons. They may really need you right now but not know how to ask you what they need. Communicating openly with loved ones, taking a trip to visit friends, or going on an outing with someone you care about or love is likely now. This would be a favorable time to work out differences or come to a decision.
Scorpio: Are you being a brat right now? You can’t just shut someone out of your life because you don’t like the way they entered in the first place. Similarly, you can’t just decide to end a relationship because of one particularly bad day, or because of a single attitude problem. Relationships are not one sided, they are a two way street. You will need to have faith in someone who may not have merited faith. If you can do this, a very promising change will occur. Meanwhile, if you can say it then you can have it, so don’t hesitate to voice your desires and you can get whom you want. If you are looking for change to looking to move forward, expressing your desires compassionately will bring them closer to fruition than demanding them.
Sagittarius: You love to approach life with confidence and exuberance. Energy of similar minds and hearts gravitate toward you today and together you could make some very positive changes. Use this smooth energy to make big strides and conquer new ground so you’ll be in ever better position when the situation is less ideal. For some of you the less than ideal situation is now. Some of you may find that your sweetheart is not very cold, perhaps to the point of being unapproachable. Rather than walk out or throw a temper, you need to take a moment to understand what is actually going on. Ask yourself why they are acting like this. It is possible you may have hurt them unknowingly? Calm down and listen closely to their point of view.
Capricorn: Sex, power, and money are far more attractive to you than normal today. Be cautious you don’t get too carried away with what bridges you may burn. You know how painful it is when people close to you seem unapproachable and distant. You yourself can be distant and just that touch off-hand when you fear a reprisal. This is why it is important today to keep your heart in the right place. Your focus at this time is toward getting down to the bottom of issues and dramas and starting over from scratch. Don’t be filled with paranoia about what seems to be happening, when it may not be what you think at all. We perceive in different ways, and signals can be misleading.
Aquarius: Your drive for personal freedom and insistence on your rights is pressing, and a confrontation in which you have to stand up for yourself is likely. Anything that makes you take a chance and encourages a leap into the new is very helpful now. Anything that is very different and offers untold scope will inspire your vision. Only the past stops you from making this jump into the unknown. There are certain old ideas that will not support a fresh relationship based on new ideals. You need to break through this conundrum, get your mind focused on the present. The energy surrounding you is bold and adventurous right now. Give into it; do not tolerate delays, restrictions, or any form of authority that prevents you from behaving exactly as you please.
Pisces: There may be a handful of you going through a rough patch right now. Don’t hang on to past issues because of pure sentiment or even loyalty if they are causing you too much pain. Sometimes you just have to let a particular door slam shut. Let one chapter of your life close in order to move forward with faith and confidence. There is too much ahead for you to be held back. For most Pisces, your relationships are especially affectionate and friendly at this time. This is a good time for parties, social gatherings, and other pleasurable activities. You may just meet someone that makes all this socializing more than just a good time. It is also possible that you may benefit socially or materially through an opportunity offered to you by a friend.
