Life in general opens up in August, with June and July the toughest months 2019. In addition, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of August in your romantic sector, no matter what life has thrown at you over recent months, subconsciously there would have been a spark of anticipation. There is always a danger that August might disappoint your expectations but I am pleased to say that this month exceeds expectations to a ridiculous degree. This is not just a turnaround or a return to normal, but a fundamental shift that changes everything and it is apparent from the get go. For you not only begin the month with the Sun in your romantic sector but with Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion here as well. If that isn't enough, you not only start the month with the Moon in your romantic sector and romantically charged lunar vibes in play from the get go but with a New Moon playing out. This is a New Moon that perfectly straddles the final hours of July and the early hours of August, with the love gods making it clear that as you move into the new month that they are very much in charge. When you add in the fact that tensions in general are easing back, even without the romantic avalanche building, this would be a real turnaround. By the time Mercury returns to your romantic sector on 12th August, returning for a double dip visit after retrograding back out last month, the stars will literally be aligned. From Mercury's return on 12th August to Mars' departure on 18th August the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars, otherwise known collectively as the 'personal planets' will all be in the same sign at the same time. The last time that happened was in October 2017. To have that happen anywhere is an advantage but even more so when it is happening your romantic sector. Yet this comes with a degree of urgency, for with Mars leaving on 18th August, Venus on 21st August, the Sun on 23rd August and Mercury on 29th August, by the end of the month there will be no more planets here. This is exciting but also urgent, with no time for rain checks.
