We know you’ve been just dying for a more comprehensive look at your love life in the month ahead- we get a lot of requests for more detailed reports on a month by month basis: and so, we have come up with something really special for you here in August.
Our August love report is where it all begins and from here on out, you can count on a blow by blow of your love life in the month ahead.
You will find that this report has all the information you need to have a better understanding of how your love life will shape up in the month ahead: from the best and worst days for love, and beyond. So, let’s just jump right in.
For Starters: A Few Things You Should Know
So, the first thing we will do is to look at the celestial weather at play in your own sign, for the month ahead. We look at the transits and the other influences that specifically pertain to your sign- so, of course, this is going to cover quite a lot of ground and you’ll find that it’s a great deal of information that you’ll be able to use to make more informed decisions about your love life. You’ll find out not only what situations may be at play- but, what you can do about them.
First, we’ll take a look at your ruling planet, Jupiter, and how you can work with, not against, the opposition to Chiron it will be making
While generally, Jupiter denotes more positive things- at first, this one may sting a bit. On the 12th, Jupiter will form an opposition to Chiron. You may find yourself questioning quite a bit- and in terms of your love life, this represents a huge shift in things. Perspectives, situations, and even you will change as a result.
If you are part of a couple this can manifest itself in a few ways. First, because this creates challenges to push you beyond a singular focus: if you have lost yourself in your relationship, problems can arise. Additionally, if your focus has been elsewhere- again, problems. These are not insurmountable though and you can work with this energy rather than against it to really grow as a person- and grow with others.
If you are single, however, this influence may play out similarly but with a twist. You may find that your singular approach, your courage in your convictions becomes a nearly magnetic draw to others- people love those who come across as solid in their beliefs and ideals: and you will. The downshot is: get too focused on all of that and you will end up missing the shot at love that comes practically to your doorstep as a result.
Both couples and singles will find that this influence can be a little problematic because a stubborn refusal to see the points of view others hold will not only hold you back from love- but, it will push away those who might benefit you the most.
Next, we’ll look at where Mercury, the planet of communication and understanding is positioned in your stars for the month of August:
Mercury will be in Virgo the whole month and so- this will put emphasis on being able to communicate better, and connecting with others so that you can be happier. Because it is in an Earth sign, you may find that your communication slows a little- but this is good because it means you will be thinking more about what you’re saying and your words will have the most impact.
This energy really helps in being being more inclined towards intellectual pursuits- which will actually help you connect on a romantic level as well. Because of that Jupiter opposition Chiron I mentioned above- you will need to be able to take the time to listen and hear what people are saying.
In these particularly houses, it will help you to work more towards those things that make you happy on the whole, and in doing so: help you to be more appealing to others and more outgoing. Being in the company of those you can relate to will be particularly important.
Now that we know where you stand when it comes to communication and affection, let’s talk about where you will find passion—In other words, let’s have a look at Mars:
At the very start of the month, Mars- which is the planet we tie into passion is going to be in Scorpio: not a bad planet for it to be in, considering that is all hot and kinky, you know? For you- this can have two effects: it can make you just a bit more assertive than usual- even aggressive, but it can also inspire some heavy duty passion, Sagittarius. This will have your energy and all your ambition geared more towards working towards building your relationships- and beginning those you want to.
After the 3rd, Mars will move into your sign, making your desires all the more adventurous. What this boils down to, and we will definitely go deeper into this aspect of your love life for the month of August, is the stage being set for some sizzling summer fun, both in the streets and between the sheets.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But that’s only three planets!” Well, you are correct there, but these are the quickest moving and most influential planets we deal with on a day to day basis, and when it comes down to love, these are the guys who will bring on the fluctuations of good days and not so good days for your sign as we go through the month. We’ll look into what the other planets are doing, as well, so don’t worry.
Why Passion and energy will help clear away the clouds with that Jupiter Chiron aspect
When it feels like you can do something new, you’re really at your best, Sagittarius. This month there will be plenty of opportunities to do just that, both emotionally and practically.
You may begin to really see that things are working to your benefit, because that Jupiter opposite Chiron’s healing influence, combined with that natural, blunt charisma of yours may actually be bringing people around to your way of thinking.
Or, meeting in the middle brings about a change of heart for others who now see you in a much more positive light. Either way, this is an excellent thing and with Venus starting the month out in Leo: there’s plenty of reason to believe that charisma will be all sorts of powerful.
Once Venus moves into Virgo, you will find that this energy tempers some of that Mars energy we talked about above- and you will be able to find a lot of connectivity: both in friendship and in love relationships. As well, this will help you to forge much longer lasting relationships, rather than just the flash in the pan type of thing.
As you tend to prefer partners who are a bit more along your wavelength, however: this is where things may get odd. You may start to find that opposites do indeed attract- like a magnet! Be very careful with that because, often, the initial jolt may have you feeling pretty good: but the conflicts and arguments that can arise from impulsive commitments may not be the best thing. Flirtation may be in pretty high gear- so, it’s likely you will have plenty of options. Stick to your standards.
If you are in a relationship and things have become a bit dull- you will find that things do begin to perk up quite a bit. You will be able to express those areas where you’re just not satisfied and you will be seeing results. Just be careful to listen as well as inform: and you will find that middle ground does everything in needs to in terms of making your relationship just a bit more feisty, once again.
You can do a lot of work in August towards making relationships much better, Sagittarius, if you’re in one. This tremendous energy can make for better relationships but also, it can help you attract and initiate relationships if you are single.
How You Can Get The Most Out Of The New Moon In Leo
The New Moon in Leo, happening on the 2nd, promises to bring a hint of excitement and adventure to your life in more ways than one, Sagittarius. This New Moon brings the opportunity to start something new or make some improvements in your home life. Nothing a Sagittarius loves more than having something new going- and this will have you in high spirits! Use this great energy to start something that will make your home environment an even better place to be. Your home is your sanctuary, so do what you can to make it feel that way.
This New Moon occurs right at the exact time Venus, also in Leo, and Uranus will be positively aspecting one another. What this means is a fresh start that will allow for you to follow your dreams—Just don’t get too lost in your dream world. You know how much begin able to keep things fresh and alive is to you: and this will have you feeling pretty good about doing all of that.
Venus and Uranus making this positive exchange of energy at the time of the New Moon is no coincidence. August is a month of fresh starts and improvements to your life that feed your happiness. Keep an open mind to new possibilities and you’ll find a myriad of opportunity ahead of you, both in love and in your personal life.
Another awesome event that coincides with this New Moon is the aspect it will be making with Saturn that will soften the sometimes difficult Saturnian energy. This is really great considering this sets the tone for the weeks to come. The aspect with Saturn here is even more emphasized because, well, when we have the New Moon making this aspect that means the Sun is as well, and in Leo this is a pretty powerful kind of energy.
This aspect reminds you to go after whatever it is that you want most and to accept nothing short of what you know you deserve in life. With this New Moon in Leo, romance is highly favored and the feeling of warmth and being wanted is definitely there.
Along with the New Moon making an aspect that lightens up Saturn a bit, there is also an aspect with Lilith, the black moon, that poses a bit of a challenge. This forces you to choose between what is comfortable and that which is more dark and daring- that’s never an easy choice for you because you WANT to dare, right, Sagittarius? In this case, you may find that going with the path that makes you the most happy in the here and now has the best impact on your love life.
Ways Mercury Is Really On Your Side This Month
Mercury will be moving through a lot of interesting houses this month, as well. Mercury here will be making several positive aspects that reinforce the good vibes that are moving through your stars- so this isn’t bad, and communication gets a great boost in your love life.
On the 4th, Mercury and the transiting Moon will make a connection, making it easier to feel the connections you have with others on an emotional level. Sharing feelings can be a positive experience and you’ll even feel more in-tuned with your own emotions. For you, Sagittarius, this energy has to be worked with well- because you will need to take special care that the Mars energy doesn’t merge with that Mercury energy: and cause you to slip up and blurt something out you cannot take back. Fortunately the positive aspects will help you to feel more mindful anyway- so, you will know what to say and when.
Just a few days later, on the 8th, Mercury and Pluto share a positive exchange of energy, all in Earth signs- which can help to stabilize SO much fire influence on your chart and make things much more powerful. Deep conversations that help you to better understand yourself and your intrinsic motivations in life open your eyes to parts of life you’ve not yet explored: which is right up your alley and keeps you feeling alive. This energy is also great for personal evolution and growth and can be a marker for leveling up in life, or in your relationship, so to speak.
Later in the month, Mercury and Jupiter make a direct connection that lasts from the 21st-24th, all in Virgo. This fantastic energy brings forward feeling of optimism and hope for the future, as well as helping you in connecting with your partner, or yourself, on a spiritual level. This is a sign that typically doesn’t work well with yours: but, in this case, you will find it to be very beneficial.
Lastly, Venus and Jupiter make a direct connection in Virgo on the 28th. This is one of the most positive energies you can have in transit through your stars and is a great marker for growth in love and romance. If you have been feeling things that are dull and weird- now you have everything you need to kick things up a notch and feel much more invigorated about it all.
How To Harness The Power Of The Full Moon In Aquarius
On the 18th the Aquarius Full Moon illuminates the area in your stars that rules your karmic path and your reputation. This energy will be rather intense and you can use this time to bring an end to any of the things in your professional life that just aren’t working for you. Has work gotten in the way of your love life? If so, now’s the time to fix that.
Aquarian Full Moons push us to think outside the box and find solutions to our problems in the least likely of places. This works very well with your general mentality- as well, out of the box is where Sagittarius lives.
This particular Full Moon, although powerful in and of itself, also has Venus, making a major aspect with another of the more powerful celestial energies: Pluto.
Three words about Venus trine Pluto: hot, hot, hot. You will find that intensity and passion ger turned all the way up to 11. Because that eclipse will activate this particular trine- you’ll find the energy is just far, far more than you expected. You will feel much stronger about those you care about- especially in romance. Your sex drive, rather frankly, may become pretty overwhelming and you may find yourself ready to go pretty much any time and intimacy can be impacted a great deal.
Karma is going to play a strong central role in everything- and your chances of finding love, lasting love, because of this is great. These may be intense, highly passionate relationships from the start- so you want to be very careful about how you roll with it but fortunately, Sagittarians are exceptionally adept at working with those energies without the jealous or obsessive tendencies. Of course, that intensity will wane a little bit as the influence passes, but what remains could be the long term love you’ve been searching for.
Be careful to avoid getting overly obsessed with things, and you will find yourself really enjoying everything this influence has to offer you. And as much as this impacts your love life- you ought to see what it can do for you with money. Investments and otherwise can return high yields: but, our focus is love and it’s all good, too.

The involvement of Venus and Pluto here suggests two things: First, now it a perfect time to rid your life, or your psyche, of things that no longer serve a purpose when it comes to finding total happiness, and also, that this is a period where you can get closer to that special someone than you have before.
There is a possibility here for twinges of insecurity or a fear of things taking a turn for the worse: even though that’s not usually your way. However, if you ignore those negative inner voices- or at least, do not act on them, but rather: talk them through rationally and calmly, you can turn this to your advantage and form a stronger connection with someone. That holds true for those in couples AND singles as new connections certainly are another awesome benefit of this transit.
When Venus and Pluto make this great connection, the potential for there to be some crazy love happening in your life is huge….HUGE. Pluto not only does its work by tearing away the negatives in your life and stripping you down to your rawest form, the planetary energy also can bring some intensely intimate experiences into your life.
