Weekly love horoscope ( February 18 – February 24)

ARIES (March 20–April 19)
Someone you connected with in the past is either back in your life or on your mind this week. If there’s any action to be taken, it’s best to do it cautiously. Slow and careful steps are more likely to build something lasting than moving too quickly now.

TAURUS (April 20–May 20)
Leave some time for pleasure early in the week, Taurus. It may be a long, slow dance, but you can enjoy every step. Make this a sensual time by enjoying all the colors and flavors of life, then you’ll find pleasure in the most unexpected places.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20)
The relationship game could pick up speed for you midweek. That’s when the Moon falls in your house of partnership, increasing the odds of making a meaningful connection. Someone from a faraway place could have the key to your heart.

CANCER (June 21–July 22)
Taking on a new challenge could be good for you this weekend, Cancer. Meeting someone while you’re testing your limits is a way to get down to basics quickly. You get to see who people really are when performance is more important than looking good.

LEO (July 23–August 22)
The Moon hits your house of romance on Wednesday. This is no guarantee of love, Leo, but it certainly increases the odds of you having a good time. Just be a playful lion and you’re likely to find someone friendly who wants to play with you.

VIRGO (August 23–September 22)
Your fairly serious mood could brighten up big time by this weekend, Virgo. Sports and games can be a good way to meet someone new. Just be careful about becoming so competitive that you chase away a person who might be interested in you.

LIBRA (September 23–October 22)
Staying close to home might be your best move this week, Libra. You could even meet someone interesting in your own neighborhood. Consider inviting a special person to your house, or just hunker down and enjoy yourself with Ben and Jerry.

SCORPIO (October 23–November 22)
You can find some extra confidence this week that helps you take a few chances. Stretch your boundaries, Scorpio, and you might find a delightful experience or two. Show a little more of yourself and the world may show a lot more of itself to you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21) You might want to complete some unfinished relationship business this week. Closing off an episode from the past might not be fun, but it clears the way to a brighter future. Face the hard stuff now and you’ll probably have more fun later.

CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19)
It’s all about straight talk this week, Capricorn. A direct conversation about personal matters can go a long way in opening up your eyes to something important about yourself. There’s no need to be defensive. Listen, learn and you’ll reap the benefits.

AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18)
You look your best when you’re in a leadership position this week. Just let your natural enthusiasm put you out where people will notice and appreciate you. If you enjoy what you’re doing, the best parts of you are going to show you at your best.

PISCES (February 19–March 19)
Look in a new direction to spice up your social life this week. Join a special interest group or get involved in community work. Broadening your horizons increases your chances of meeting somebody new, so break some habits and break new trails.
