Loving Venus encompasses Cancer’s warm energy beginning on August 7, helping you open up and let your emotions out. If you’re just getting to know someone, it might be too soon for this. If you’ve been with someone for a while, though, they’ll be happy to see a more emotionally available version of you.
When inventive Uranus goes retrograde in stubborn Taurus on the fifteenth, you’ll start a five-month-long series of internal challenges centered around whether or not you’ve taken enough risks in your love life. There’s no use regretting things you can’t change, but there’s also no reason to make the same mistakes in the future. Learn your lesson already, Virgo.
Your ruler Mercury enters your responsible sign on August 19, so you’ll be on top of your communication game. This isn’t the best time to flirt, because you take things so seriously, but at least if you say you’re going to do something like send a text, you do it.
The sun also enters your logical sign on the twenty-second, saying goodbye to outgoing Leo but welcoming in a month of taking care of your love-related responsibilities. If you’re in a relationship, your partner will appreciate your willingness to help with chores and DIY projects, as well as your attention to detail.
