Virgo - 22 Aug to 22 Sept
A certain domesticity takes over your life this month, both in love and sex. Single Virgoans don’t want a passionate short-lived affair, instead they’re looking for someone they can spend time with watching a movie in the comforts of their home. Attached Virgoans will favour spending time at home with their family rather than rushing out to social gatherings. Conflicts and arguments will feel small compared to the love and affection you may feel for your partner. You may be afraid to embrace this side of you at first but accepting your need for domestic comforts and the simple gestures of your family and loved ones will feel freeing. Drop your high expectations and be content with what you have already.
Libra - 23 Sept to 22 Oct
Libra individuals have a new take on love and sex this month. They are seeing relationships in a different light and are closing an eye to rules that say you can’t combine business and pleasure. Your socialisations don’t just stop when you leave the house. You have a knack for finding friends in strange places this month. Single Libras should always keep an eye out for unexpected opportunities to form connections, while attached Libras may rekindle old friendships or make peace with any issues that have been plaguing their household or life. This is a beautiful transformative time for you, where magic can happen because you make it happen. You are the key to your own happiness.
Scorpio - 23 Oct to 22 Nov
August is a mixed bag for Scorpios. Many Scorpios may not have the time for romance or love, as they are too busy with their careers. While this can work for single Scorpios, those who are attached may have to deal with conflicts stemming from this. It is important to realise that these conflicts are often not worth fighting. Pay attention to your loved ones and understand when you aren’t giving them the attention they deserve. This difficult period will pass, but it helps if you can acknowledge it and try to help it pass over as smoothly as possible. Things will normalise closer to the end of the month.
Sagittarius - 23 Nov to 20 Dec
Enough of all the serious matters, they have finally been taken care of. Now is the time for love, laughter and fun (including fun in the bedroom). You want to enjoy yourself fully this month, and people want to enjoy themselves with you. Your optimism is infectious. Single Sagittarians may find they’re the life of the party or that they make new friends wherever they go. Attached Sagittarians stand strong at whatever life tries to throw at them, with their family and friends as their support. Now is a good time for a vacation or trips overseas. Take note, these trips won’t be completely smooth sailing, but your Sagittarian brand attitude is what makes a normal trip into something great.
Capricorn - 21 Dec to 19 Jan
August is a buzzing time for Capricorns, and its main theme is choice. There will be many choices for Capricorns to make this month, be it concerning their home, family or children. Many attached Capricorns will be a bit on edge from last month but find that their relationships really haven’t gone anywhere. Progress will be favoured over all else. However, those in new or fresh relationships may encounter some conflict this month as you start to ponder the practical and even financial sides to your relationships. Those who can withstand these tests of time will find their relationships to their partner growing stronger and more tangible. You’ll also see progress in the bedroom, as you find yourself bolder and more adventurous between the sheets.
Aquarius - 20 Jan to 18 Feb
Relationships can be tested this month. This isn’t bad though, as it can bring up actual issues in a relationship, strengthen strong relationships and help weed out bad ones before they become worse. At the same time, do not let yourself be completely swept up or disappointed as this occurs. Aquarians have a higher likelihood of finding new friends or meeting new acquaintances this month. Even while you may have quarrels with loved ones, they will also prove their support and loyalty to you this month. Consider this a period where Aquarians will have a better understanding of the relationships around you. This is also a good time to figure out if you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to bedroom activities.
Pisces - 19 Feb to 20 Mar
Mars and Venus dance beautifully in the Pisces’ sector this month, inviting challenges but also romance into your life. This can leave you feeling winded, confused and uncertain sometimes. It is important that you stick to your moral values and not stray from what you believe is right. If your partner or a one-night-stand wants to do things in the bedroom that make you feel uncomfortable, firmly reject them (and not just for this month). Attached Pisceans may find lively debate amongst their friends and loved ones, while single Pisceans will find that there are many new relations to be made. Passions and romantic feelings will be renewed this month and given new life.
Aries - 21 Mar to 20 Apr
The sun continues to shine on Aries individuals in their love lives. Those who have been wanting to get back into the dating game will find their efforts rewarded this month, whether in terms of feelings or bedroom action. People will be willing and ready to socialise with you and there is potential for real connections to form. Those who are in relationships will find things moving along smoothly this month. You will be spoilt for love. However, remember to give as much love as you get. Guard yourself against being selfish or having your ego inflated with all the praise you may receive. Remember there is merit to being humble and you will attract more flies with honey.
Taurus - 20 Apr to 21 May
Taurians’ tempers are on a bit of a short fuse this month. While physical attractions and passions run high, matters of feelings can be tricky and complicated. There is potential for arguments and irritability in the relationship. Any serious issues can be brought up in this time. However, most tensions may stem from petty topics. It is important you realise when you are being too judgmental or harsh on those around you. Learn when you should step back and take your time to cool down. Avoid saying something you might regret and try to tap into your empathetic side.
Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun
This month is promising one, with hints of a blissful and happy home atmosphere. At the same time, Geminians are also looking to venture out of their shells and form new connections or strengthen current ones. Now is a good time to start socialising, either at organised events, hangouts or on vacations. The lesson this month is not to take this time for granted. Take this time to appreciate your loved ones and ensure your feelings are mutually returned. Call up relatives or friends you have not spoken to in a while. Spend time with your friends and family. Relax Geminians, this is your month when it comes to love and family.
Cancer - 21 Jun to 20 Jul
Last month, Cancerians were starting to heed the call of self-reflection. In August, they are finally becoming comfortable with acknowledging their own needs and desires, both in terms of feelings and sex. Ironically, when they start loving themselves, they are also able to more readily love others. In making space for their own needs and thoughts, they can better empathise with others. Keep this practice alive this month. Look back on your own accomplishments and then look ahead at your future with a brighter lens. Focus on your needs before you embark on any new relationships. Both single and attached Cancerians will find that love blossoms again this month under their own gentle and coaxing hand.
Leo - 21 Jul to 21 Aug
The spotlight swings over Leo’s love life as well in August. There is something warm and meaningful blossoming inside of you. You step back into the romance game with a new light and brighter perspective. People are attracted to that fire and maturity that you exude. This is also a fertile time for attached Leos. Those looking to have families may find some success this month. Those who already have families will find that this is a time for familial bonding. Organising family nights or hangouts with loved ones will be especially fruitful this month. This is a beautiful time, don’t waste time trying to dissect or understand it. Just relax and enjoy yourself, Leo.
