Your August Love Horoscope, Revealed

Get ready to relive the good old days. This August, romantic Venus is retrograde, making us all quite nostalgic. We could reconnect with an ex, search “the one that got away,” or take a heartwarming trip down Memory Lane with our mates. However, not all systems are go. While Venus is driving in reverse, we’re more likely to misconstrue people’s feelings. Is it a fling or the real thing? That won’t always be clear. But, remember, with Jupiter heading into precise, particular Virgo for a year on August 11, we can afford to be more selective. Only the best, dahhhlings, only the best.

Capricorn Love Forecast

When it comes to lovers, you have a sophisticated palate, Capricorn. But, with five planets cruising through your erotic eighth house in August, you also need someone who can get a little down ‘n’ dirty with you. Meow! Has your mojo been in slo-mo? Bringing sexy back is a worthwhile goal. Move your body more often with dancing, swimming, or yoga. That endorphin rush will get you purring in no time.

Warning: With Venus retrograde until September 6, there could be a dust-up with an ex. Your rarely seen jealous streak could flare up, too. Get the facts before you react. If there is just cause for envy, lay out an ultimatum, and be prepared to walk if your requirements aren’t met. Free-spirited Jupiter heads into your independent ninth house for a year on the 11th. Single Caps will embrace their status or at least find enjoyment in dating some different types of people. (Long-distance and cross-cultural romances should not be ruled out.) Attached? The second half of August is a stellar time to take a vacation with the one you love.

Your Beauty Forecast: Puttin’ On The Glitz
To get the look, prep your skin with foundation, concealer, and powder. Use black liquid liner to draw in a thick cat-eye. The end of your brow serves a guideline to flick up the liner at the outer corner. Then, pull from the end of your wing back in toward your lower lashline, and fill in the center of the shape. Using a glitter-packed silver liner, draw a thick line along your lower lashline to dress up your look. Apply a healthy coat of mascara to your upper and lower lashes. For added definition, fill in your brows with a pencil one shade lighter than your natural color, and brush them up with brow gel. Add hints of color to your look with pink blush and pale-pink lip gloss.
