August 2012 Aquarius Love Horoscope

Living on the edge

This should be your busy season when it comes to relationships. August opens with the life-giving Sun in dramatic Leo and your 7th House of Partners. You may attract expressive individuals, although it's even more desirable for you to show your feelings openly. A playful and generous spirit is the key to making romance happen with this transit. Playing it cool can leave you out of the game of love, so don't let your head get in the way of your heart. It's better to be innocent, open and foolish than to be so smart that you talk yourself out of taking the risks needed to deepen a connection.

Rockets may go off around August 15, when amorous Venus crashes into volatile Uranus and transformational Pluto. These could provoke power struggles and increase your urge for freedom. Inappropriate attractions are possible in an environment that encourages unconventional behavior. Yet it is possible for you to go to the edge without falling off, as you're protected by a sturdy Mars-Saturn conjunction in reasonable Libra. This allows you to go too far and then find your way back to emotional safety.

On August 22, the Sun enters careful Virgo and your 8th House of Intimacy, bringing you closer to someone if you're willing to discuss the details needed to create trust. The following day assertive Mars pops into passionate Scorpio, which tends to make relationship issues more extreme. However, powerful feelings can help you cut through confusion, eliminate obstacles and get on a more fulfilling path toward love.
