Your heart should be more open to a spirit of play, adventure, and romance for much of this month. August begins with the Sun in outgoing Leo and your 5th House of Self-Expression and Love. This encourages you to be more outgoing and ready to take risks in pursuit of pleasure.
Getting attention should come more easily to you even if you are reluctant to come across as pushy. That's because your assertive ruling planet, Mars, is in protective Cancer until August 27, which you might find inhibiting. In fact, wavering between the brash and the shy sides of yourself is quite possible now. It's fine to be totally on when people are around, but you may require some private time alone or with your family.
Still, verbal Mercury strides into dramatic Leo on August 8 to heat up your brain with creative ideas and enliven conversations with clever comments. Yet communications could be frustrating on August 11 when Mercury runs into a stressful square with restrictive Saturn. Slow down to check facts and to speak with patience and authority needed to earn the trust of others.
On August 22 the Sun's entrance into analytical Virgo and your 6th House of Work is meant to shift more attention to taking care of business. Meeting someone on the job, while doing community service or exercising becomes more likely than connecting at a concert or in a club. Self-improvement is a must as tuning up your body and mind and developing new skills raise your confidence and make you more appealing to others.
