August 2012 Pisces Love Horoscope

Face your fears

There are three planetary shifts this month that should prove beneficial to your personal life. On August 7 Venus, the planet of love, ends her long stay in jittery Gemini and moves into watery Cancer and your 5th House of Romance. This sensitive sign is compatible with yours, creating a social environment that reflects the tenderness and care that you like. Connecting in a gentle manner without being impatient or aggressive should work well for you.

Venus does run into some complications on August 15, with hard aspects to disruptive Uranus and Pluto. This could bring hidden issues to the surface, but it's better to face your fears and move on than to deny them and fail to advance in matters of the heart. Just do your best to adapt for the moment as more help is on the way.

The Sun's entry into Virgo on August 22 occurs in your 7th House of Relationships, putting more fire in this part of your life for the next two months. Love, though, requires discussion and thought with this transit. It might not feel romantic to deal with practical matters or seemingly petty details, but it's by taking care of these small things that your partnership will grow. The next day passionate Mars enters intense Scorpio, a water sign like yours and like Cancer. This transit is useful for getting to the very core of your feelings and empowering you with the desire, sex appeal and sense of purpose needed to put your personal life on a more satisfying track.
