Learning to be more careful in what you say and the choices that you make are two valuable lessons this month. August opens with lovable Venus in critical Virgo and your 4th House of Roots. The downsides of this include excessive fault finding (primarily in yourself) and being bogged down with domestic tasks that get in the way of having fun.
But this transit can also help you gain clarity about what you need to make your life work effectively. Love and attraction are great but if they don't align with your other personal and professional goals, adjustments are needed. You can also use this period of time to reconnect with skills or talents that you are ready to be refined and bring brought into your life in creative ways.
On August 16 Venus glides into gracious Libra and your 5th House of Romance, which is bound to make you more desirable to others. But the key to attracting the interest of people is to appreciate yourself more. Investing in pleasing yourself is a powerful step toward making you more appealing to others.
The Sun enters Virgo and your 4th house on August 22, followed there the next day by your brainy ruling planet Mercury. Analysis of your past will continue to be a major theme. However, it's important not to get stuck going over flaws or mistakes that cannot be corrected. The point of reviewing your relationship history is for you to learn from it and to make the adjustments required to fulfill your own needs while being a positive partner.
