This summer Venus will be on the move! She'll sail through cerebral Gemini from July 4-31 and during this time we'll want to sample the most interesting possibilities in love. Dull routine will be the kiss of death in relationships during this time, and mental connections are a must.
Then, from July 31 - August 26 Venus will move through the tender sign of Cancer. Now, emotional security is paramount in matters of the heart. Sensitive souls rejoice!
From August 26 - September 19, however, it's time to have fun! Venus will tour flamboyant Leo during this time, and wants to party, live, and love to the fullest.
Rounding out Venus' trek this summer will be the eclipses. On August, 7 a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will be at a perfect angle to Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra. You and your love might reach a personal aspiration together. Then, on August 21 a Solar Eclipse in Leo is trine Uranus -- your heart will be ready to jump out of its comfort zone!

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This will surely be your summer for lovin'! Mars, your ruling planet, will tour your romance sector from July 20 - September 5. During this once-every-two-years event, you'll enjoy a boost in libido as well as opportunities to truly enjoy all the pleasures life has to offer.
It gets even better at the New Moon in Leo on July 23, which will collide with Mars. You will surely have an opportunity to meet someone new and fall in love, if single. Don't worry, if you miss this New Moon you're in luck. On August 21 another New Moon will fall in the same part of your chart -- this time a Solar Eclipse!
Finally, for good measure, Venus enters your romance sector on August 25, and remains here through September 19. As you can see, your summer is filled with back-to-back opportunities for love. Yum!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Domestic matters will be a stronger focus for you during most of the summer, so it's possible that romance will take a back seat. Even so, you'll have significant opportunity to nourish your love life this season.
It's possible that the reason why you're so focused on home is because you and your lover are ready to set up house together. If so, you'll find that the process of moving in together really makes your relationship come alive. If you're already living together, it's likely that you'll be busy redecorating your home or working on a renovation project. You'll both put your heart and soul into it!
If you're single, pay attention to the magic of September. On September 5 Mars will move into your true love sector for the first time in two years. This will help you go after whomever it is you're drawn to the most.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your magnetism will be through the roof from July 4-31 when Venus tours your sign. If you're single, you'll notice more people giving you second glances as well as attention. It'll be a fortunate time to meet someone new because you're truly giving off your best vibes. If you're in a relationship, then your mate will help you feel extra valued and beautiful.
One difficult day for love will be July 24 when Venus opposes Saturn, now in your relationship sector. It's possible that your relationship wrinkles will rear themselves during this time, and you'll need to decide whether or not it's worth the work of ironing them out. You might also feel restricted in your love life during this time. Perhaps a relationship obligation is all work and no play. If this happens, remember that fairy tale romance can't be 24/7. Someone has to do the dishes, pay the bills, and care for the kids.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Venus will tour your sign from July 31 - August 25, making these weeks your very best for summer romance. If you're single, you'll notice far more attention than usual from potential suitors. Your confidence will be strong and you'll look and feel more vibrant than you have in quite some time. As a result, others will genuinely be drawn your way! If you're in a relationship, it's likely that you'll feel extra supported during this time.
One exception to this will be near August 15 when Venus opposes Pluto, the planet of power and control, now in your partnership sector. You and your sweetie might have a massive disagreement over a financial situation, and your partner may insist on having the upper hand. If this happens, you'll likely feel manipulated and might hold back affection because of it. Remember, the only way to get past this situation is to move through it. Together.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Undoubtedly, this will be a memorable summer for you in many ways -- especially when it comes to love. There is so much energy in your sign at every possible time frame during the summer, how can you NOT be favored? It all starts with Mars moving through Leo from July 20 - September 5. This once-every-two-years event will bless you with more stamina and ambition to pursue anything -- or anyone -- you've got your sights set on. If the goal is romance, you will not fail.
A New Moon in Leo on July 23 insists on making your life brand new, and if you don't "get it" the first time, you'll experience another, more potent, New Moon in your sign on August 21. This will be a Solar Eclipse, and it will be at a gorgeous angle to Uranus, the planet of sudden events. Expect a happy, life-changing, surprise!
Last but not least, from August 25 - September 19, Venus will tour your sign. This summer, you are certainly the favored one. Enjoy the cosmic treats!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
There's a lot of undercover energy at work for you this summer, Virgo. You clearly want to have fun and enjoy the pleasures of romance, but for the most part, you're likely to do so in private. Mars will move through your 12th House of Secrets and Escape from July 20 - September 5, giving you this incognito vibe. You do want to experience romance and allow your creative self to shine, but it's possible that circumstances beyond your control will necessitate that you settle for quiet moments rather than loud ones. That's ok -- romance is still there!
If single, you do have a stretch of social time from July 31 - August 25, when Venus tours your friendship sector. This will be when you get the most social invitations and have a wonderful opportunity to step out into the sun and be noticed.
Your time will truly arrive, however, after September 5, when Mars enters your sign. Then, nothing can stop you from showing everyone exactly what you want out of life and love.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
This summer will surely be one of your most memorable! You'll not only enjoy time with pals more than you have in ages, but there's a distinct possibility that you and a friend will become lovers under the magical moonlight of those endless summer nights.
It all begins on July 20 when Mars enters your friendship sector, and remains here through September 5. This will give you the motivation to get out more, join groups, and attend fun events. If there is any chemistry between you and a friend or acquaintance, it will become palpable during this time.
Two New Moons, also in your friendship zone, occur this summer as well -- one on July 23 and the second (which is also a Solar Eclipse) on August 21. With both these New Moons happening in Leo, this suggests romance and fun connected to friends. If you're already in a relationship, you and your sweetheart might vacation with pals or spend a lot of time attending creative events together.
Last but not least, Venus will ALSO move into your 11th House of Friends and Groups on August 26, and remains here until September 19. Love is definitely connected to your social life. This is when it blossoms.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
This summer might not feel like it's the most exciting when it comes to romance, but there are certainly spurts of pleasurable opportunity that you'll want to maximize. From July 4-31, Venus will move through your 8th House of Shared Resources and Intimacy. If you're partnered up with someone, it'll be a significant time. You and your mate will be able to forge a deeper, more meaningful bond because you'll both be willing to reveal more to one another. Chipping away at each other's guards and melting vulnerabilities might be scary, but during this time, it'll be more rewarding than you realize.
Another advantage to this transit will be financial. You might hear positive news about your partner's finances that will surely benefit you as well. A joint investment will also likely do quite nicely.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
This summer is strong for romantic potential, with opportune times for both single and partnered Sagittarians! If you're in a relationship, the good news starts immediately. From July 4-31 Venus will tour your partnership sector, adding grace and harmony to your love connection. This will be a supportive time to truly enjoy each other's company and remind one another why you are so in love.
There is one day, however, that might be touchy. On July 24 Venus will oppose Saturn, reminding the both of you just how serious your commitment to one another is. If you're feeling overwhelmed with responsibility near this time, it might chip away at the passion.
From July 31 - August 26 however, you and your partner will find your intimate life reaching new depths and heights. Finances also look favorable.
For the single Sagittarius, expect an opportunity to meet someone you're extremely attracted to while you're traveling abroad this summer. You might also meet this person while you're expanding your intellectual horizons through summer classes or a workshop.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
From July 31 - August 26 love planet Venus will move through your partnership sector, giving beautiful potential for you and your sweetheart to see improvements in your relationship. If you're seriously dating someone, then it's possible that during this time you'll decide to strengthen your commitment to one another. You might become engaged, get married, or move in together.
One day you'll want to tread cautiously around is August 15. At this time Venus will oppose Pluto in your sign. As a result, it's possible that you'll be more concerned with retaining all of the power in your relationship. If calling the shots is more vital to you than truly relating, you might receive a wakeup call.
Aquarius (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
This summer you can look forward to significant relationship developments. Your 7th House of Partnership will be quite busy, hosting Mars, a New Moon, a New Moon Solar Eclipse, and Venus all at different time frames this summer. This is significant and rare Astrology to have all condensed in one part of your chart.
There is no doubt that you and your partner are in for a fantastic fresh start. You're both motivated to make love work and you genuinely want to give each other the very best. You might need to clear the air about some underlying issues one or both of you are upset about, but don't worry -- this is going to lead to the fresh start you both need.
If you're single pay attention to July 4-31 when Venus tours your romance sector. You'll have the best prospects to meet someone new and fall in love.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
If you're single and hoping for a summer romance, you'll want to circle the dates from July 21 - August 26. That's when Venus, the planet of amore will tour the area of your chart connected to meeting someone new, dating, and falling in love. This is the area of pleasure and fun, so you can count on these weeks being the most memorable this season. A work romance might also be on the horizon for you from August 26 - September 19, so be aware of that potential as well.
If you're in a relationship, then after September 5 you'll start to have much more action in your love life. At this time Mars will enter your partnership sector. For the rest of the summer and into the fall, you and your mate will prioritize finding ways to spice up your love connection.
