The good news this month is that the Sun is in your outgoing sign until August 22. The warming power of this brilliant star lights up your 1st House of Personality, which is likely to get plenty of attention. Self-confidence should rise as well, encouraging you to be more outgoing and to take personal risks. But if you're reticent to speak up and play the role of initiator in your relationships, you'll get another gust of wind in your sails on August 8.
That's when verbal Mercury enters Leo where it inspires your mind with creative and romantic ideas. You might, though, run into obstacles on August 11 when patience and precision are essential. But even if you're frustrated by the absence of a response (or even a negative answer) then, you should be able to come up with a fresh angle on August 14 when Mercury aligns favorably with innovative Uranus. Changing your words and your approach can produce an opening that was previously blocked.
The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 20 is another key date because it lands in your 7th House of Partners. Connecting with an unusual person or dealing with freedom needs is likely. Finding more space within an ongoing alliance by shaking up the rules and becoming more independent will show you new ways to be with someone you love.
Assertive Mars blasts into Leo on August 27 to push you even harder. Being bolder and engaging in more physical activity are excellent ways to safely channel this powerful and passionate energy.
