August Love Horoscopes: Get Ready For The Rollercoaster!

How Far Would You Go For The One You Love?


You love the thrill of the chase but once you’ve caught the object of your desire boredom can kick in and leave you twiddling your thumbs. With retrograde Venus making you fickle and restless you may feel compelled to look for your next conquest or play games in order to keep the spark alive. Try living in the moment and absorbing something other than excitement. You may find that comfy old slippers are underrated.


The Stars have been creating giddy, unadulterated lust. This month though you’ll feel compelled to pump the brakes, especially those of you in the budding stages, as retrograde Venus prompts you to look past the passion in order to examine if you’re compatible on a deeper level and share the same values. Don’t see it as a complete buzzkill, after all, these are issues that need addressing.


You’re one for details and niceties but over the next month you may wonder if the trimmings are really all worth it. They are. Don’t change because it’s not being reciprocated and even though you may feel taken for granted know that your cheerful nature greases the wheels and your partner really does love you for it. On a different note this is a good time to discuss starting a family or work on fostering harmony within your existing clan.

August Love Horoscopes: Get Ready For The Rollercoaster!


The Stars are encouraging you to examine your self-worth and settle for nothing but the best! If your nurturing disposition has been allowing your needs to play second fiddle to your partner’s it’s time to let them know that in no uncertain terms you’ll be putting yourself first for a change. For single Crabs, the New Moon on the 15th is a wonderful time to write a list of potential partner credentials – the more specific, the better.


The smouldering pool that you plunged into last month is fast becoming tepid as Venus regresses through your sign. Couple this with feisty Mars in your sign as well the Sun boosting your sense of entitlement and you could verge on serious Diva-dom. Yes, it’s your birthday and you do deserve to be adored 24/7 but cut love interests and partners some slack if they don’t live up to your expectations and appreciate what they do have to offer.


Looks are a turn on but as one of the more cerebral signs you enjoy partners to challenge your intellect, especially now that ruler Mercury is in your sign. Try doing a Mensa test together, completing crosswords and exploring a meaty subject you both enjoy. Single Virgos, you’re after someone who’ll stimulate your mind – Librans and Geminis tick the boxes. Meanwhile, a Full Moon brings passion and drama to your relationship sector around the 30th.


Sometimes it’s lonelier being in a relationship than out of one. If you’re in a convenient but not altogether satisfying twosome of sorts because you feel it’s preferable to being alone this month you’ll be forced to face a growing divide. The Stars in your sector of aspirations and dreams are urging you to raise the bar and pursue the sort of relationship you deserve. Couples in healthy unions will be brought closer together by achieving a common goal.


You’re after adventure and lots of it. Not content to stay home in front of the TV or make love in the bedroom you’ll want to walk on the wild side with your partner and will crave excitement in the form of wining, dining and doing naughty things in in risky places. Back to the boudoir though, living up to your reputation by adopting a more audacious attitude is sure to keep you and your partner happy! Singles, check out Sagittarians.


You’re one to fly by the seat of your pants and this month you should definitely expect the unexpected! Even if you’re not in the market for a relationship with spontaneous, driven star placements in your sector of travel and adventure, anything can and will happen, especially in the love department. Don’t be surprised if you fall hard and fast for someone totally out of the blue, especially if he’s a sexy foreigner or fellow Sagittarius.


Frisky, adventurous, bold … yes, you! The stars, specifically the Sun, Venus and Mars, are making you impulsive and daring turning even the most conservative ‘nice girl’, bad! If you’re unattached a fling is definitely on the agenda, most likely with a handsome stranger gracing our shores. Meanwhile, for those of you in relationships your wild, experimental side will leave your partner speechless and beaming!


Venus grinds to a halt in your relationship sector so you’re likely to cool on someone you were previous red-hot for. We both know how independent and erratic you can be so with that in mind don’t, under any circumstances or influence, make plans for the future, at least until September when the love planet resumes a direct course and your heart is in sync with your head … and loins.


Jupiter, the planet associated with good fortune commences its one year sojourn in your relationship sector this month. Astrologically this spells ‘lucky in love’ as the ease, laughter, generosity and grace associated with this planet transform your love life into a wonderful playground. You’ll want to explore various aspects of your relationship, in some cases more literally, making this a perfect time to book a long romantic holiday.
