Monthly Love Horoscopes for August 2017
This month's Eclipses are going to concentrate your thinking when it comes to relationships. The great news is the Lunar Eclipse on the 7th links with Jupiter in your sector of partnerships. It's possible that someone you've only ever seen as being a friend could actually become so much more. Solo? This is the month to turn up the volume and to be so much more self-assured.
The planet of communication, Mercury, is in a very positive location in August, but he does enter a retrograde on the 13th, so in any romantic context, whether it be around an existing tie or creating dates with anyone new, the potential for misunderstandings is high. Being in touch with your emotional needs will help to guide your decisions. Your sex appeal soars from the 23rd.
Communication is always a central part of what you have to offer. Whether this is through your bright minded, sociable side or through more thoughtful ideas and debate, someone can be attracted to the way you think and express yourself. But equally in an existing relationship, care is needed from the 13th. Even if you feel things are clear, double-check a partner feels the same.
Whatever you share, it's going to come under the astral microscope in a big way this month. If you have a relationship which is truly harmonious and physically close too, it can be propelled to a new level of contentment in the next six months. If not, action may be required. Solo? You're going to be emanating a very special magic this month, which can pull someone to you.
This month is going to see the second of two lunations featuring your zodiac sign. This is a chance to be much more individualistic in your approach. If you're footloose, this is going to help you to rediscover your confidence. True, it doesn't guarantee that "the one" will instantly appear, but the chances are you're moving much quicker towards a more positive romantic future.
This month could challenge your confidence in some ways, but I don't want you to feel that this is going to be a bad thing, because by being more aware of your sensitivities, the more they can guide you in a direction which can see you developing a greater sense of fulfillment at a much deeper level. Don't be surprised however, if there are some stop-go moments, Virgo.
Jupiter has been with you for nine months, and if it has yet to have seemed to bless your circumstances in the way you would like, its angle with the Lunar Eclipse on the 7th this month can surely help. This is asking you to embrace a much more authentic romantic future. If this means liberating yourself from something that isn't working and re-entering the social whirl, then so be it.
Look out for clues this month, not necessarily in someone you encounter in terms of their non-verbal communication, but also in terms of what comes up from within you. You may be surprised by the inspiration that does call out to you. All of this may see you becoming bolder in what you decide to do, perhaps even more ambitious in terms of your romantic moves. Dull it will not be.
The most exciting thing that is set to happen this month, is that Saturn, the planet of restriction, ends its retrograde in your zodiac sign. This may not be an absolute panacea for you but the last twenty three weeks have probably had their fair share of challenges and limitations. This month gives you the opportunity to truly throw off the shackles and feel much less inhibited.
We can all take pointers from how people appear, and the kind of impression that they create upon us. But this is a month when you're being asked to be open minded and think beyond this. For example, the very person that could be so good for you may come from a completely different social background or age group or possess very different sensibilities. Be as flexible as possible.
The Lunar Eclipse in your zodiac sign is going to make you much more conscious of the relationship you crave, or about the one you have. Yet whatever your circumstances, you have every reason to be optimistic about what the future holds. A quite stunning Leo eclipse on the 21st, can propel you forward purposely, and for many months to come, and see you much more desirous of a close bond.
Your intuition can be your greatest gift, and sometimes your biggest opponent. If this seems contradictory, it's simply because you need to ask yourself whether you always listen to the messages that you are being given. If the answer is no, this is a fine month to tune into the reality of your situation and be guided by what your gut is telling you. Despite this, do work hard at your interactions.
