Your mind is on love during the first half of August, and you feel comfortable when you have a lot of people interested in you. You can be a bit of a flirt, so if you’re attached, watch it! During the second half of the month, your flirt factor increases, and it seems like everyone is trying to court you, whether you want to be courted or not. You take the attention in stride, and let ‘em down easy. The 27th could be when passions run highest for you, and having someone around to help you work through it will be beneficial.
During the first half of August, love for you is more cerebral, and you want a mental connection. You can try online dating, and enjoy the interesting discussion and the way they dig into your mind. You’re casual about it, and prefer to think about the possibilities instead of do anything right away. The second half of August is better for action, and you can feel a love connection, especially around the new moon in your love sector on the 25th. The 27th might be a difficult day though, and you have to watch for getting into a fight.
You want to take things slow in love during the first half of August, and don’t want to be pushed into anything. You’ll make your decision when you feel you’re ready, and no one will be able to tell you otherwise. You prefer to be with someone who is sensual and will feed you chocolate-covered strawberries and give you back massages. Later in August, you’re ready to take a step back from the physical and dip into their mind for a while, getting to know how they think, what they think about, and if it’s you!
Venus, the planet of love, is in your sign until August 12th, so you’re the love goddess for the first half of August. Just wiggle your finger and everyone falls at your feet (sort of). Your powers of attraction are heightened, and you’re in the mood for love. The full moon on the 8th stirs up feelings of jealousy and makes you a little more clingy than you need to be. Avoid the urge to be a vengeful ex, and focus your passion on your current sweetie. On the 23rd, the Moon aligns with Venus, and you can show all of the love and affection you feel.
You might feel a lot for someone to start August, but you keep it to yourself. You don’t want to share your lovey-dovey feelings right away, and if you have a beau, prefer to get dirty when no one’s looking. Sure, Leo loves the spotlight, but everyone needs some time out of the glare every once in a while. On August 12th, Venus enters your sign, and you’re the latest love goddess. Put on a toga and have your lover feed you grapes. The full moon on August 10th makes you want to commit more to them - or less?
You feel that it’s important for you to have a connection with someone that’s not only physical and carnal, but that is also one of friendship. If you’re not friends, you won’t stay together when the passion ebbs, and you want something that’s going to last. You can try to improve the base of friendship in your current relationship, or decide to be friends with someone new first before taking it to the next level. If you start to have real feelings for them, you’ll likely keep them to yourself, waiting for the right moment in September.
You put love aside during the first half of August, wanting to focus more on your goals and ambitions, and when you do embrace love, you’re more practical and detached. You just don’t feel that it’s the right time for it. During the second half of August, you can have a better connection with someone, but chances are, you still take it slow and start platonically. The full moon on the 10th makes you re-evaluate your love relationships, and you can decide to cut ties with someone, especially come the 27th.
You want to have an adventure in love during the first half of August, feeling that it shouldn’t be taken so seriously. You want to enjoy yourself with your partner, or a potential suitor. You could have lots of new suitors, and you play with them all, keeping things casual while enjoying the physical. During the second half of August, you decide it’s time to stop the playing and get more serious, and chances are, you’ll abandon all of the suitors in favor of something more practical and responsible.
Love is intense as August begins, and you don’t want anything light and fluffy. You want to feel as close to someone as you possibly can, and can lose yourself in another person. Be careful you don’t take things too far, otherwise you might get arrested for stalking. Channel your passion in the bedroom instead. Later in August, you can lose the intensity and become more playful but not want any attachment. You want to be free to roam as you please, and not have anyone to check in with constantly.
This is very much a month for relationships, and you begin August focused on your partner, or on having a committed relationship. You take it seriously, and you can throw yourself into an existing or new relationship. On the 1st, you want to show the level of your commitment so they don’t doubt your loyalty. Come the 26th, you might have a little bump in the road though, and feel your loyalty being questioned. Don’t give in to a major outburst that’ll only make things worse.
When the month of August begins, your mind is on relationships and commitment, and you feel comfortable when you have someone by your side to share your life with. If single, you work harder to find this. Later in the month, you find more pleasure in being in a relationship, and experience more intimacy and passion. The new moon on the 25th amplifies this, and helps the single folk find someone new. On the 25th, you can feel like experimenting with your partner, and try something you’ll both enjoy.
You can be loving and affectionate as August begins, and freely share the love you feel. You’re a little flirty and fun, romantic and sweet, and people are attracted to you. You become more serious about love during the second half of August, and you want to have an actual commitment. The new moon on the 25th in your relationships sector could facilitate this. You’re enthusiastic and ready to commit yourself to someone, and if attached, you can do something new with your partner to show them how committed you are.
