Weekly Love Horoscope For August 1 - August 7, 2022

You need to close out the old before you can begin the new.

Weekly Love Horoscope for August 1 - August 7, 2022

The week begins coming off the heels of the Uranus North Node union in Taurus, which initiated a brand-new cycle of freedom over restriction.

Following this theme, the astrology ahead is designed to help you break free from the restrictions of your past so that you can start to embrace not just the present moment but the future as well.

This may involve some shifting dynamics, if not the ending of a relationship, then the conclusion of certain aspects.


Endings are never something that anyone looks forward to, but it is an opportunity to celebrate.

When you can end a relationship, a dynamic within it or even an old belief about love, it means that you have grown, learned, and are ready to do better.

This is behind the energy of this week; you have learned a lot of romantic lessons recently, and when that occurs, those lessons must begin to look like different choices in your own life.

It does not mean that you may have everything figured out or know precisely what the next step is, but it is enough to simply know what no longer resonates with you.


If you need to have an important conversation with your partner about either the ending or transitioning of a relationship, the second half of the week, Mercury moves into Virgo, will be favored.

This occurs on the 4th and will allow you both to look at things more pragmatically and plan how to proceed.

The entire week is supported by the energy of the celestial lovers, Venus in Cancer uniting with Mars in Taurus, helping you to move beyond what you have outgrown so that you can create space for what does resonate.

This may peak around Friday when the First Quarter Moon in Scorpio brings to a head anything that does not truly resonate and which brings the realization of what you must move beyond to start moving ahead.

While often energy like these builds, it seems to finally come to the point where decisions are being made this week.

By doing so, you are not just creating space for the new or for what aligns most, but you are declaring that you are worthy of the love you know you deserve.

Important dates affecting your love horoscope this week:

Monday, August 1st

Venus in Cancer and Mars in Taurus bring the support of moving beyond where you have felt stuck as they unite at the beginning of the week. Venus and Mars are known as celestial lovers, with Venus representing the feminine and Mars the masculine.


As they connect, you will be able to break free from old patterns so that you are freer to create something that feels more aligned with your future. This can either be a relationship ending or beginning.

Still, it can also change the dynamics of an existing and long-lasting relationship. These two planets will stay connected most of the week, giving you a chance to upgrade your love life.

Thursday, August 4th

Mercury, the planet that rules communication, both in how you speak and think, will shift into Virgo today. This is great energy for making future plans and aligns nicely with the energy Mars and Venus bring into the week.


The Mercury in Virgo is detail orientated and truthful to others and itself. This is great energy to help you create what feels more in alignment with your own heart and any goals you may have. This also would be a wonderful time to sit down with your partner and plan for whatever it seems may be coming up next for you as a couple.

Friday, August 5th

The First Quarter Moon occurs in Scorpio today, again intensifying the energy that Venus and Mars have been bringing into your lives all week. The First Quarter Moon is a time to reflect on what you need to let go of to move towards the creation of whatever intention you set at the New Moon.

First Quarter Moons bring reflection and the desire to create change. In Scorpio, this is the release not just of people or situations but also of the emotional weight you have carried around, which has prevented you from accepting what you truly need to receive from a relationship and the person you love. It also will bring a shift from accepting what you can get to receiving what you know you deserve.

Love is different from career or work projects, so you cannot approach it in the same way, but that does not mean you cannot find success today if you take the risk of being vulnerable.
