To start with there is nothing to suggest the romantic time bomb waiting to explode this month. Explode with opportunity that is. You might get your first inkling when the Moon moves through your romantic sector from 3rd August to 5th August. With no planetary activity in your romantic sector since 2018, these monthly visits have been your only chance to connect to anything romantic, apart from Venus, the planet of love's return to Taurus earlier in the year. These romantically charged lunar vibes are a chance to tap into the spirit of romance, but also to connect with the love gods and pick up on any messages they might have for you. This is what makes this visit different, for the love gods will have a lot to say and a lot of important messages, the most important being that there is a romantic tsunami on the way. For it is just 13 days after the Moon leaves that Mars becomes the first planet to reach your romantic sector this year, with the planet of passion able to give things a passionate start from the get go. This will be followed just days later by Venus, the planet of love's return to your romantic sector on 21st August, followed by the Sun's return on 23rd August, Juno's return on 24th August, Mercury's return on 29th August and a New Moon on 30th August. See what I mean by a romantic tsunami? You will end the month with more planets in your romantic sector than you have had at any one time in years and also more planets than any other area of your chart. With Mars spending the rest of August, the whole of September and into the early days of October here, what begins in the second half of this month will spill over into next month and beyond. This means that the second half of August will give birth to the most romantically charged weeks of 2019 and from the Moon's return on 3rd August preparation begins.
