August 1 starts off with a Mars-Uranus square. Control your temper, and let any flare-ups be for the good. Romance could peak on August 7 as Venus trines Mars. What happens now could be made to last.
The new moon (and solar eclipse) on the eleventh presents tempting but risky opportunities. Loosen your death grip on controlling everything and cautiously indulge in a fantasy. Find a new passion with money potential. Resist any knee-jerk reactions. Mars enters Capricorn the next day, and there's more energy for work.
Mercury goes direct on August 18, so a stalled project or relationship should move forward soon.
On the twenty-sixth, the full moon is a very private but perhaps not quiet time. If people buzz around you, let them buzz. Reserve extra dreamy personal downtime, perhaps with one or two intimate favorite people. Mars goes direct the next day, having been retrograde since June 26. Get those afterburners ready.
