Your August Love Horoscope, Revealed

Do you have a helmet handy? Prepare to butt heads with your S.O. this month. August's clash between soft-focused Venus in Virgo and lusty Mars in Sagittarius will create some choppy waves on the ocean of emotion. But sometimes it takes a strong current to wake us up and remind us that relationships take work — the kind that can be super rewarding if you dive in headfirst. Mars in Sagittarius will also have a hand in turning you into a risk-taker. You’ll be open to new types of people and amorous adventures, maybe even rushing headlong into a relationship that just feels right. Venus in Virgo, however, is much more traditional, cautious, and risk-averse. You’ll be challenged to figure out how to stretch your sensual boundaries without straying from the safe confines of your relationships. On the 6th, Mars and Venus will lock into a combustible square (90-degree angle), which will force you to reckon with your opposing needs for both spontaneity and stability — whether single or spoken for. But hey, who says you can't have both? This month, the goal is to find that happy hybrid in one brilliant package.


Power couple alert! With the Leo sun lighting up your 10th house of success until August 22, you'll enjoy being half of an enviable pair. Single Scorpios, save your final rose for someone whose successful life makes your security-loving sign swoon. It's not that you need or want a sugar daddy (gag). But it's nice to know that someone could provide. An office romance could heat up after the 2nd. Of course, there are red flags to mixing business with pleasure, so take it slow. Coupled Scorpios could start a business together or figure out how to combine finances for maximum abundance. Managing money as a pair will make you feel proud and mature. Don't be surprised if talks turn to "our future family" while you're at it.

Digital dating could bring a cosmic click as Venus taps through your tech-savvy 11th house from August 5 to 29. Give dating apps another try, or start sending Snaps to a crush and see how things unfold. After the 22nd, you may meet your match through mutual friends or a group activity. Coupled Scorpios should socialize more together to liven up the bond. And traveling with a group of mutual friends will be an epic adventure during the Jupiter-Venus merger on the 27th.
