The Venus-Cancer team beginning on August 7 is excellent for creating security in your love life. The emotional connection you feel with someone intensifies now, and you’re starting to think about future plans. If you’re new to this feeling, welcome to the grown-up’s club!
You’ll feel a bit of an initial letdown when the sun leaves fellow fire sign Leo for down-to-earth Virgo on the twenty-second, but you might as well try to use some of this “boring” energy to take care of outstanding or pending love-related responsibilities. Do you still need to get a gift for a friend’s wedding? Or RSVP to an engagement party? Just because your love life isn’t exciting right now doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate someone else’s happiness.
There’s a stress-inducing opposition on August 25 involving loving Venus and expansive Jupiter, your ruler, causing you to call into question some of your past romantic decisions. Would you be in a better place romantically if you’d made different choices? You can’t change the past, but you can vow to do better in the future. When you come out of your funk, it will be time to show someone (maybe you) that you’ve learned your lesson and are ready for a fresh start.
