The first day of this month will see the Sun sizzling in your 5th House of True Love, Romance, Passion and Playmates (among other oh so excellent energies that come courtesy of this sensual and sexual 5th House). Leo is playing around during these days, too, and since Leo simply loves to be in love, well ... so will you.

Plan to get out and about and consider taking a current special relationship to the next level now. Or, get out that itty-bitty bikini and go for a stroll down the beach so you can meet a new and wonderful significant other. Good stuff here my friend, good stuff.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

You might find that you could stand to make some changes within your current relationships, and although, initially, you may not be happy about that, you will definitely see the need for it.

On August 6th, two angry squares might prompt some tension or a quarrel or even a break-up since restrictive Saturn will be involved. Look, if it is time to say "so long" just rip the band-aid off quickly. However, if you think that you shouldn’t be so final, then go ahead and try and make it work. Just remember though if it is time to let your significant other go, you won’t be alone for very long.

Warrior Mars will penetrate the borders of adventurous Sagittarius and your 7th House of Partners and One-On-One relationships. This cosmic courting could begin for you as early as August 2 when Gemini and Mars bring passion and excitement that will shower over you.

One thing is for sure though, during this month, where your relationships are concerned, you will NOT be bored. Look, there might be a few arguments but they will help you to clear the air as opposed to breaking you up.

Oh to be you this month! There will be hugs and kisses and lots of laughs especially on August 27th when charming and lovely Venus and expansive Jupiter hang out and then hook up in your 3rd House of Communications and Conversations, too. Now, since these two are considered the most benevolent of planets, having them merge by your side will be delightful and deluxe for you!

On top of this, you will get some extraordinarily happy news coming to you at the end of the month too. Just remember to invite me to the wedding, OK?

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

A bright and shining Full Moon that rises in unpredictable Aquarius will illuminate your relationship axis on August 18th. You might suddenly decide that your current love interests you no longer and that it’s time for a sexy new lover who adores the ground you walk on. If that does happen to turn out to be the case, then you might find your special someone wanting to put a ring on it and that will be just the ticket since you are ready to become exclusive with each other now. 

The one thing that I DO know is that no matter what, you will be totally attractive and irresistible this month.  Good thing that August is so hot because (and trust me when I say this) you will be, too.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

You just might feel as if someone in your sphere is trying to take advantage of you this month and, well, you might not be wrong. Pay attention to your intuition and your instincts since they won’t steer you wrong.

On August 7 and, then again, on the 14th, dreamy Neptune will receive oppositions from Mercury and Venus, respectively and this could make you also feel more vulnerable than usual. All of that said, please don’t read into anything that isn’t there and/or become paranoid. Rather, just be careful and all will be well.

There will be someone relatively new who will rock your world this month, and that could happen as soon as the very first day of August. This person will prove their worth and they will come to your aid without you even ever having to ask. Nice. But, let’s face it, you’ve always known that they would. 

The best part is that all of these acts of kindness and compassion will bring you and your beloved even closer. This partner has your back — and your front, and other parts of you, too.

Lovely and loving Venus will be taking up real estate in your 11th House of Groups and Friends (and hopes, wishes, and dreams too). She will make that move on August 5th where she will unpack and stay until August 29th. It’s a safe bet to say that during this time you might be introduced to someone new who makes you swoon and that all-important introduction will come from a friend or even a friend of a friend.

Whatever and however this happens, you are going to be walking on air while your head will be in the clouds. Just be sure to be open and inviting and give that potential partner a try.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Charming Venus, goddess of love, will be partnering with dreamy Neptune on August 14th so, if you are single and looking for the perfect partner, this could be the month! 

Take a deep breath, step back and give all this goodness a try and let it put a smile on your face — and in your heart. But, please do give it a few days before you decide that this is love. In the meantime, you might want to use the energy of a wonderful trine between the Sun and Uranus on August 16th to play, have fun and make some next step decisions.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

If there is tension between you and your sweetie pie around August 13th, try to keep your mouth shut since not only can words hurt, but you might regret some of the same ones that you say. Venus, goddess of love, will be squaring off with restrictive Saturn on that day and will do that just as Saturn is stationing, so I want you to hear me in your head when I say that your words will carry a lot of weight. 

If, on the other hand, you are ready to end your current relationship, this might just be the day to call it a day. No matter what, you can either work this out or not but if not is the choice then please know that there is someone waiting in the wings to get your full attention.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

It’s a wonderful, fulfilling and satisfying month to be you. The hot, hot, hot Sun will spend some sizzling time in your 7th House of Partners and One-On-One relationships and hat planet will also heat up playful and passionate Leo. This planetary party is promising you some entertaining and lively companions. Plus, Mars in equally adventurous and fun-loving Sagittarius will spend his time in your 11th House of Friendships so it’s time to get social and go out to play with people who strike your fancy, too.

Striking matches — sizzling Sun — didn’t I say that this month would be hot?

That goddess of love, Venus, will be in Virgo and your 7th House of Partners from August 5 through the 29th. This practically promises that you will be getting busy with someone who is romantic and sensual, passionate and playful. If you are already happily attached in an existing relationship then you should go ahead and warn your friends that there is a great chance that they won’t be seeing much of the two of you this month. If you are single and looking, it’s time to get out and about and find that potential partner of your dreams.

Either way, things in the romance department are looking really good. Really darn good.
