Yours is a sign deeply rooted in feelings, which is what often makes you so warm and wonderful. But while emotions are the fuel of love, your brain may be more important than your heart when it comes to relationships this month. Venus, the planet of amour, is in analytical Virgo and your 3rd House of Communication until August 16.
This transit requires clear thinking and talking to make the most of your partnership opportunities. Being specific about what you want and don't want is much more useful than expecting others to read your mind. Putting in the time and effort to address specific issues is a key to improving a current alliance or providing you with the sharp perspective you need to create a new one. This doesn't mean, though, that criticizing others or allowing anyone to tear you down is the way to go.
Intelligence works best when it's expressed with kindness. Investing more in yourself is called for with the bold Leo Moon in your 2nd House of Self-Worth on August 6. Innovative Uranus' favorable connection to this event encourages you to experiment with your appearance and to take some chances in developing your talent.
The unconventional Aquarius Full Moon falls in your 8th House of Intimacy on August 20, indicating the importance of being open-minded and less restrained by your old values. Stretching your ideas about what it takes to become close with someone brings the fresh air of new ways to connect and rewards you with new forms of pleasure in your personal life.
