Your July Love Horoscope, Revealed

They say love doesn't come with an instruction manual. But what if you could write one? On July 20, romantic Venus will flow into a supportive 120-degree angle (called a trine) with wise, mature Saturn. In this formation, the energies of the planets combine beautifully, sounding the call for both playfulness and structure. Does that sound like a paradox? It may not be. In order to thrive, relationships require clear agreements and a sense of where your limits and boundaries lie. Sure, this could bring up some heavy conversations, but leaving things up to chance is a far riskier option. Assumptions and guesswork rarely do much to build a bond. Hey, there's no "right" way to do love, but configuring a formula that works for you and your other half can be done. With diplomatic Venus working her magic, these conversations are bound to bring you closer. Think of it as creating a safe container for love to thrive. When you know what and whom you're working with, you can choose how far you want to go. And if you can get on the same page as bae, you'll have a wide-open space to relax and open your heart.


Start your engines! With the sun and romantic Venus in your healthy-living zone, treating your body like a temple is the way to get yourself in the mood for love. Hot prospects could pop up anywhere from the gym to the outdoor running trail. If you're in a relationship, taking on a wellness mission together would be a great way to bond this July. A stabilizing formation between lovebirds Mars and Venus on the 6th helps you set goals, like saving up for a trip to Peru or buying your first apartment with your sweetie.

July's romantic renaissance happens on the 22nd, when the sun blazes into Leo and your seventh house of partnerships for a month. Venus also cruises through Leo from July 12 to August 5. The window is open to upgrade a casual connection into a solid relationship. Follow the rules of "opposites attract." Sure, common ground matters, but a complementary force might be a better fit than someone who loves all the same things that you do. Already attached? The last third of the month is all about bringing balance to your bond. Stop yourself from rushing in to solve and fix, and give your honey a chance to step up to the plate.
