Tuesday, August 12: Venus in Leo

On Tuesday, love planet Venus enters romantic Leo, and she will remain here until September 5. This is an extraordinary place for Venus to be, as Leo is the most romantic sign of the zodiac. Leo wants to give love and express joy, and when Leo does anything, she does it BIG.

Expect plenty of indulgence in the love department now -- and you'll also have to up your game if you want to enjoy the pleasures in life. That means you'll need to make the person you adore feel like the center of your universe in order to achieve the most heart-stopping reactions. Oh, don't worry ... you'll get the same attention in return. What a love fest!

Friday, August 15: Mars in Scorpio sextile Pluto and Mercury in Virgo

On Friday, Mars in Scorpio will be at a supportive sextile to Pluto, which will give you unstoppable will and determination. This connection can help you achieve just about anything because you simply won't give up. And because Mars rules our libido and Pluto intensifies whatever it touches, you can be sure things will get hot and heavy in the bedroom.

Also on Friday, mental Mercury will enter Virgo, where he'll remain until September 2. Your mind will easily focus on the details with Mercury at home in Virgo, allowing you to edit work seamlessly and up your productivity. The only downside to Mercury in Virgo is that all of the over-planning you do may lead to unnecessary worry and anxiety. Don't overthink!
