The love scene in '08 swells with portent and change. Ground rules shift. Black becomes the sexiest color. Ballrooms and tuxedos return. Courtship will grow more restrained and formal, intimacy more binding. Pluto, the planet of sexual desire, and Jupiter, love's lucky friend, spend this time in Capricorn, so amour will run in practical channels. Ambition, loyalty, skepticism and protectiveness will win hearts. Young couples will wax serious about the future. Many amorous conversations will include words like "mortgage" and "career." On the dark side, we should guard against love situations that smack of relentless ambition, scheming and greed, exploitation, and sexual dominance.

Earth and water signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces - can find deep, life-altering love this year - in some instances The Love of their life! But there's no rush - true love can enter anytime in the next two decades.

Others - the fire and water signs - should seek love's delights, but be satisfied with less than permanent bonds in '08. Sagittarius and Aquarius would be wise to delay wedding plans until late 2009, while Leo and Gemini can benefit from deep commitment (not necessarily to each other). These four - as well as Aries and Libra - start 2008 with romantic prospects ranging from friendly to fiery! All are primed for spring and autumn affairs.
One caution: this love guide is based on your Sun sign. If you know your Moon and Rising signs, read those too. Remember, Goddess Love can strike anytime, anywhere, no matter what your sign!

Aries - (March 21-April 19)
2008 starts with a flurry of calls and friendly meetings, but you could feel confused about your social and romantic direction. You might even temporarily abandon the desire for love (or chase the boss's heart) as you pursue an ultra-lucky career scene. There's nothing wrong with withdrawing this winter to mull things over.
By April your magnetism soars, and doubts dissolve. You could happily chase someone sexy and mysterious from May to November. May/June and August swell your heart with tender romantic feelings, but you'd be wise to look for the pitfalls. Autumn brings the exhilaration and challenge of head-to-head love jousting. November is simple: sexy and deep.
All year, step lightly on the romantic accelerator. If your head swims with infatuation, you might scare your desired prospect away. If you're social and friendly, you'll succeed in love - especially in February 2009, when your popularity soars and wishes come true!

Taurus - (April 20-May 20)
For the next two decades, your chances of finding your True Love soar to a lifetime high! If you're already wed, the two decades ahead will knit you more closely and happily together.
2008 kicks off this splendid "love era" with a streak of amorous luck! If you're unattached, your sensual, sexy desires will lead you unerringly to someone who loves and nurtures your heart and mind. (He/she might spontaneously hold your head in his/her hands.)
February to June and December into 2009 will emphasize love's gentleness, long conversations and possible wedding plans. July through November nudges you toward deeper, more intimate explorations of love. Sexual gratification, commitment, lifestyle choices, mortgages and babies, will fill your days together. But DON'T insist on setting up house before September 2009 - a long engagement is best!
You'll find love at social functions in March, and everywhere this summer! An exciting person arrives November/December.

Gemini - (May 21-June 20)
If you're single, this will be your sexiest year in a quarter-century! If you're married, your libido expands powerfully. Married or single, intimacy, loyalty, psychological and emotional exploration, therapy/healing, and lifestyle changes enter your love life in a big, serious way. Pregnancy prospects absorb young couples. Signing a mortgage for love's sake will swell your net worth later!
This can be a dangerous time for Gemini singles who fall for an attractive married person, and for married Geminis who stray. You'll get more than you bargained for, along with emotional scars that could last for twenty years.
Be profound and long-sighted this year and next. A wedding is far better than "staying friends." Foreign countries, schools and libraries are fertile hunting grounds for love. Old flames weave in and out of 2008. If you're uncertain who will best fill your heart's future, wait until 2009 - that year brings love's answers!

Cancer - (June 21-July 22)
2008 sets in motion a two-decade chain of massive partnership events. Excitement arrives! Dull compromise and dull ideas (such as marrying for security) - these flee. Now to 2024, you're going to fall in love, and marry for love, period. If you're already married, your mate might become a bit stubborn, secretive and inscrutable - but he/she will blossom if you "get romantic."
This year brings many exciting meetings, sometimes with strangers. The slightest glance can sprout into a meaningful, life-changing link. For some, life's destined partner arrives. For others, 2008's romance will exercise and renew your heart for future love, rather than bring present stability. All year, you'll feel blessed and calm if you steer toward deep, meaningful intimacy. Don't accept casual physical gratification.
Your sexual magnetism will soar in March/April. May's sweetly social and July's talkative, busy - someone's attracted! October/November's newcomer could spark your tender feelings with his/her graceful poise.

Leo - (July 23-Aug. 22)
Former friends and old flames (or thoughts of them) fill January/February, May/June, October, and January/09. These links to the past might contain the seeds of a new romantic life for you. But chances are they're entering to complete something, to finish up, and free you for the bright new partnership and love prospects of 2009.
Still, don't reject romance! If you seek to bond with others, whether you succeed or fail, you'll end feeling satisfied and mellow - and you'll gain insight into why some lovers have been evasive/deceptive with you in the past. If you opt for a sulky independence, you'll create a subtle dead-end.
Your sexual magnetism soars from May to August and late November/December - an international note could spell love! Be gentle May/June and October/November, when you could be a bit hasty or pushy. January/February 2009 starts 12 months of heightened, intense relationships - you'll be lucky in love!

Virgo - (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Here comes a lucky romantic year! It might not bring The One, for you still face three years (until 2011) of adventurous, exciting, dynamic, unpredictable and probably unstable relationships. Still, you'll take two major steps toward true love. First, past dissent and struggle in home areas ends, freeing your heart to soar. Second, a lucky attraction (March to May or September into early 2009) will make your heart stronger, more secure. This could be intangible - the thrilling, healing sensations of sweet love - or as concrete as buying a house with your lover. (Real estate's lucky!)
If you're married, 2008 brings happiness and a brighter home. Children charm; pregnancy is possible.
You might be sexually attracted to a higher-up this February. In March/April a social contact intrigues you with flirty mystery. In May/June, murky waters tempt you: take care! Your sexual magnetism soars July to September. January (09) brings beauty personified!

Libra - (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You want to feel warm and fuzzy, to snuggle intimately with your loved one. A flirtatious, play-the-field approach won't interest you in 2008, nor will it work. Seek deep, meaningful romance with serious people. Be vulnerable - if you feel swept away, or embarrassed, you're on the right track! Old flames pop up everywhere.
Love might arise at someone's house, in a garden, restaurant, home show, real estate office, etc.
February could bring a message from someone who has spent a long time thinking about you. Your answer could trigger a love that's swift, romantic - and true! April brings exciting meetings, but you're so otherwise engaged that you might shoo a suitor away. May is very sexy, but take care. Someone who makes you laugh May through August could also become a subtle, disappointing dead-end. Your sensual magnetism surges mid-August to October! January 2009 begins a year of major love prospects!

Scorpio - (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
A flurry of meetings, conversations and travel will give you many openings with attractive people. You have two choices this year: a stable, friendly, easy, casual and supportive love - or a dynamic, exciting love affair, with few prospects of stability or permanence. (Or choose both - life wants you to try on many different people and relationships, in preparation for the true love that will flood your life from 2011 onward.)
A sexy co-worker distracts you in February. March inspires your sweetest emotions, as you meet someone truly worthy of being adored. You can talk a romantic blue streak this month and April. Be gentle May/June; your temper's a little raw. A former sex partner could appear - so could someone whose mellow character balances you very well.
Your social life explodes busily July/August. Your sexual magnetism simmers October/November, attracting someone good-looking and bouncy. January 09 begins a year of domestic bliss.

Sagittarius - (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Life's easy, Sage! You discard emotional shells now; you emerge to embrace life's fresh goodness. Your new openness will draw admirers and sensual opportunities.
You might discuss marriage this February - or you might decide to break up. Either way, it's a fresh start! If married, exercise diplomacy, now and in July/August. Reject a tempting, verboten liaison March/April, when your libido surges.
April to June brings sweet romantic feelings toward an exciting, challenging person, perhaps from the past. Your temper flies high July/August, but a mellow, compassionate meeting of minds and hearts soothes you. Flirty yet thoughtful new people, and an old flame, easy-going and friendly, enter your social group in October. Your sexual magnetism soars late November through December. January/February 2009 begins a year of light, friendly romance and travel.
All 2008 and 09, you'll be happier if you keep things light rather than trying to tie a wedding knot.

Capricorn - (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Love, its depth and purity, always determines our successes and failures, even in business. Remember this during 2008, a year of huge change and new horizons in your life. Your sexual and personal magnetism builds from February to June, and again November onward - to 2024! Seek others out. You'll be welcomed - even desired!
Spring triggers intense, heated relations, perhaps with someone from the last few months of 2007. This either is or isn't a viable mate - better decide. Your romantic heart blossoms and your libido seriously hits overdrive in May/June. Avoid extramarital attractions (and STD-prone situations) all year. Keep sex light, friendly and ethical - someone will support you in this, with a loyalty that surprises and pleases you.
September brings love, but career demands interfere. Someone you meet at October/November's social function would make a good, sweet, sensual friend. Briefly reassess your life in January/February 2009, as someone pursues you!

Aquarius-(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your charisma and romantic courage remain high all February - it could be time to take a chance on love, perhaps to contact that old flame.
May and June bring relationship excitement - romantic bliss can turn to love or anger, or both. Take stock: would you really want to be with this person in twenty or forty years? If not, have fun, but reject any marriage talk.
Your libido surges this summer. Many intimate moments are possible with an attractive person. Sexual tension simmers; a "harmless" conversation could lead to something deeper. Don't cross social or marital boundaries. If you're married, your mate might want to change your lifestyle, or relocate: be cautious. By September/October, travel and cultural plans arise - say yes! Someone (an old flame?) might pursue you in September/October. In February 2009, you burst into happiness and start attracting serious attention.
All year, avoid committing to a permanent bond.

Pisces - (Feb. 19-March 20)
17 years of socializing, fun and flirtation, of marriage wishes fulfilled, starts right now! You might wed in 2008. You'll have many love choices, but it's likely that a serious, gentle person will win your heart. Because you're in a transition stage between ambition and emotional fulfillment, you might find your perfect playmate in a work or career setting. Don't be in a rush - you have many years ahead to find true love!
If you're married, love blossoms when you work together on an educational, cultural or travel project.
Be patient in February, when domestic issues fire your temper. From March to May passion - and a boost in charisma - give you the courage to chase and land the romance you want.
Your sweetest feelings swell in July - giddy, dizzy passion could erupt! Don't let your sexual urges get you in trouble August to October. Say yes to November's tender offer.
