Like our love lives, the Universe presents us with challenges and opportunities. There are also ebbs and flows, and the August 2017 Love Horoscope is no different. The Universe is always cooking something up and this month it’s added two eclipses to the mix. Eclipses can be complicated to explain, but briefly speaking, they can bring unexpected surprises and life-changing events. And their aim is always to move you forward in life.
Looking for your soulmate? A love psychic knows where to find them!
So, let’s look at some of the main astrological transits in August that may affect your August 2017 Love Horoscope:
- On the 7th there is a full moon lunar eclipse in rebellious Aquarius. It has a good vibe overall, thanks to Jupiter’s friendly angle to the Moon.
- The second eclipse falls on August 21. It’s a second-in-a-row new moon in charming Leo—this time, a new moon solar eclipse. Mars, the Sun, and the new moon all form a warm and wonderful connection made for togetherness. This is great news especially for the signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
- Another wonderful day to watch for is the 27th when bigger-than-life Jupiter sextiles Saturn retrograde.
There are two dates in August that are directed at your dating life. The good one is the romantic trine between Venus and Neptune on the 11th (also good for couples). The not-so-good is on the 24th when Venus will square rebellious Uranus.
If you’re making plans for the future, circle both the 13th and the 22nd of August. This is when karmic Saturn retrograde lends a feeling of forever to relationships. You can find out more by reading your August 2017 Love Horoscope below.
If you’re single, the August 7th full moon lunar eclipse may reveal something about someone you’re interested in or even the people they’re associated with. It doesn’t look like a problem per se, but if you hear anything you may find it somewhat startling. Now, let’s look at the new moon solar eclipse on the 21st. This eclipse is in Leo, also known as your fifth house of fun, frivolity, and recreational sex. This eclipse relates directly back to a Leo lunar eclipse we experienced in February. If you flirted with someone back then but never took it further, this is the time to take it to the next level. For those in a committed relationship, the 21st will open the door to redefining and deepening your connection. Whether it’s a platonic relationship that heats up or a current relationship that needs change, take the bull by the horns.
Socially inclined Mercury in your fifth house through most of August means it’s a wonderful time to socialize and meet new people. Things could even get a little naughty. Mercury will retrograde in your fifth house between the 12th and 30th before it moves into the sign of Leo. A chance encounter with someone from your past is possible. And, it looks like you pick up where you left off. If you’re already attached, changes in your home life are possible. The eclipse on the 21st is propelling you to make a fresh start on your home turf—either starting over with or without someone. Eclipses always have your best outcome in mind, so be open. If you’re single, the 27th brings expansive Jupiter and karmic Saturn together in a wonderful aspect that lasts for weeks. You may come face-to-face with your romantic future, so embrace it and enjoy the ride.
Think about how lucky you’ve been to have abundant Jupiter blessing your fifth house of fun, risk taking, courtships and creativity for the past year. With only two more months before it moves out of Libra, it’s time to think about anything wild and crazy you haven’t done yet, or maybe even someone you’ve been crushing on. Jupiter brings luck, so don’t waste yours if you’ve got something to do or say. It could be as simple as sharing a naughty thought or suggestion. Singles and those in a serious relationship: This is an ideal time to book a romantic trip, pop the question or plan a second honeymoon. The August 7th eclipse touches your ninth house of long-distance travel. Therefore, you should make plans well in advance of the 12th when Mercury turns retrograde in your house of communications.
Your August 2017 Love Horoscope suggests that you should be open to receiving love. If you’re single, meeting someone new is a distinct possibility, so keep your eyes open. You have Venus is your Sun sign until the 26th, making you irresistible to others. But it will be up to you to figure out who is Mr./Ms. Right vs. Mr./Ms. Right Now. The August 7th eclipse in Aquarius, otherwise known as your eighth house of personal relationships, suggests that you could very well find “the one.” Married Cancerians will receive most of the attention from their significant others. The eighth house also highlights your shared money, so there’s no better time to pool your money and take a much-needed break from your daily routine. Get to know one another again! Perhaps you should spend a long weekend on a secluded beach—no swimsuits required.
With all the planetary action happening under your sign, you’re not lacking attention. The days between August 4th and 7th will call for you to remain alert, and not get too carried away with someone, especially if they’re from your past. Jupiter will square Pluto on the 4th and there is a lunar eclipse on the 7th in your house of partnerships. This applies whether you’re married or single. Eclipses cause us to react impulsively, so listen to your inner voice if it’s saying, “you know better.” Single Leos will have a chance to change their relationship status around the new moon solar eclipse on the 21st which takes place in your first house. You may want to change your appearance. Normally, whatever you do is sure to get noticed, so imagine the power of transformation that can happen when you’re powered by this life-changing eclipse.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, will retrograde in your Sun sign between the 12th and the 30th before moving into Leo. A series of miscommunications may occur within your personal relationships. Perhaps your lover doesn’t understand what you’re trying to convey, or a long-distance lover may be hard to pin down for a few days. Unless you’re having problems, there’s no need for concern. Therefore, don’t start trouble where none exists. Wait for your lover to explain why they’ve been distant. It probably has nothing to do with you. For couples, the solar eclipse on the 21st will take place in your house of secrets. This relates back to the lunar eclipse in February in the same sign. You may have learned something then that you need to discuss now, but eclipses work on an arch and this may not be the right time. Wait until the timing feels right.
Lucky and expansive Jupiter in your sign remains with you through August. However, for those in a relationship, a square between Jupiter and super intense and unpredictable Pluto on the 4th indicates that you and your significant other may have a financial snafu that could cause disagreements. Neither of you seems to have caused this, so use this time to stand together. If you’re single or just dating, you’ll love the lunar eclipse in Aquarius on the 7th that shows up in your fifth house of playmates and hedonistic behavior. If you’ve been dating online, the chance to meet in person may present itself. Just use caution as you really don’t know everything about this person yet, even if you think you do. Tell at least one person you trust just to be safe. This impulsive eclipse is all about clandestine meetings for you, but make sure it feels right.
Circle August 7 and the lunar eclipse in defiant Aquarius on your August 2017 Love Horoscope calendar. This eclipse will take place in your fourth house of home and living arrangements. If you’re not happy where you are, you may move. If you’re in love and ready to take the next step, you may get a place together. Just do what feels right, because where you live and with whom affect every other part of your existence. Single or attached, take notice of the Mercury retrograde set for August 12 when old lovers and friends find you through social media and make contact. If you’re single, this may be a perfect time to explore the past and consider someone who was just a friend. If you’re attached, this connection will hopefully be on a friendship level and you should invite them over to get reacquainted—and meet your other half.
From the beginning of August through the 25th, Venus will be in the home-loving sign of Cancer and your eighth house of intimate relationship and shared money. Venus suggests that this is a good time to stick close to home to work on intimacy and save money. If you’ve been seeing someone who has moved into your home without an invitation, it may be time to set the record straight. You don’t often mince words, so make sure that your reasons and intentions are understood as Mercury will be in retrograde. Be clear and avoid misunderstandings. For singles, you won’t be in the mood to sit still because Mars and the Sun in your fellow fire sign Leo will make you feel ready to run wild. Venus will move into Leo on the 25th, touching your fifth house of lovers. You may meet someone special.
Let’s take a look at the August 4th intense square between lucky Jupiter in your career house and intense Pluto in your first house. You’ll be craving time away from work. You’re beginning to understand how all work and no play makes life dull. While you love your work and your social life almost equally, you may have been spending too much time on your career, thereby losing the balance you seek. Mercury will retrograde on the 12th in your ninth house of self-improvement and if you’re in a committed relationship, this imbalance may become even more apparent—especially if your significant other feels put aside. Still, it won’t be easy to forget work, as the two eclipses this month are all about your finances. Whether single, dating or attached, use your August 2017 Love Horoscope to plan some time for love. Next month will present a chance to get away.
With so many planets in fire and fellow air signs, you certainly won’t have much time to sit still this month. But that’s okay because you’ll be meeting new people who share your ideals. If you’re single, one of them could turn out to be someone special. The solar eclipse on the 21st will activate your seventh house of close relationships. Single or attached, August will be an interesting month that is mostly to your liking. Eclipses can add to your already impulsive nature, so you may feel a bit anxious about taking a relationship to the next level. If you’re coupled and looking to buy a house or join financial forces, you can expect a delay thanks to the Mercury retrograde in your house of shared funds. Any delays, however, should work to your benefit, even if only to learn more about your partner before living with them.
August 12th on your August 2017 Love Horoscope calendar is the day Mercury begins its retrograde phase in your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. During this three-week period, you may come into contact with someone from the past; someone you’ve never forgotten. Mercury calls for clarity, so it’s okay to remember the good times as well as the bad. This is an opportunity for you both to move beyond the fog and perhaps reform a truer connection. Single or attached, if you’ve been pulling away from a relationship, look to the Venus-Uranus square of the 24th to be clear and concise if they’re not getting the picture. This will apply to both romantic relationships and friendships. If all is well in this department, then it will remain so, but if not you’ll finally find the words and the nerve to spell it out clearly.
Being in love is a life experience that everyone deserves. Whether you’re looking for your soulmate or wondering how to keep the romantic fires burning in your relationship, a love psychic can help. They want to see you happy and a psychic love reading is all you need to find or keep the love that is meant for you.
