It is with a sigh of relief that you move into August and while we are collectively catching our breath, for you this is especially important. June and July have been the toughest months of 2019, due to multiple oppositions between any planet moving through your relationship sector and both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. When you threw in last month's total solar eclipse in your relationship sector and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn two weeks later and the fact there was a lot of planetary activity and you had the recipe for a lot of personal and/or relationship tension. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will always move through your relationship sector in June and July and this is the bare minimum of planetary activity and therefore the bare minimum of push back you could expect. This year you also have Mars, making his first visit to your relationship sector in two years and the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships making her first visit in four years. Every available planet that could move through and into opposition with both planets in Capricorn this year not only did but in the space of just a five week period, right when the eclipses were falling. As you move into August the only planet left in your relationship sector is Mercury and while he retrograded back in for a double dip visit, he won't retreat far enough to cause a problem. Instead, as the planet of communication, he is in damage control. Mercury will turn direct in the early hours of the month but won't leave until 12th August, with a chance to ensure the communication lines are open. Things are already settling back but the benefit from the last two months will only slowly reveal themselves. What you're left with is a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This month there is a lot more focus on matters of the heart and all things romantic.
