Each Zodiac Sign's Monthly Love Horoscope For August 2022

Each zodiac sign's monthly horoscope for August 2022 is here and it's amazingly good.

August brings in a very different energy than July as commitment and planning the future together will be key themes you will be moving through.

This begins the same week Mercury shifts into Virgo, giving you a chance to discuss plans and the details that often can be overlooked in the haze that love often creates.


Mercury in Virgo isn’t intimidated by plans or by discussing things together and can actually be quite beneficial to have some important conversations which can immediately change the nature of the relationship.

This initiates the sentiment that the more committed love is, the freer you feel because there isn’t space for anxiety or avoidance to grow.

Commitment, especially in healthy growth-orientated relationships, will bring about a greater sense of freedom.



This becomes echoed with the Aquarian Super Full Moon mid-month, inviting you to embrace your own authenticity and desires apart from anything you were conditioned or expected to believe about love.


When you can recognize your own dreams and needs as part of anything that you were taught to believe about love, you then are truly free.

It’s not a commitment that brings restriction but not fully committing to what resonates the most deeply with yourself.

There is no more leaving things to chance, but instead recognizing that what aligns the most authentically with yourself is also worth committing to, especially when it comes to love.
