The month of August is one of action and dialogue. Our relations will be dynamic, there will be exchanges of ideas, but also conflicts.
The love horoscope in August announces important transits, which will mark the end of summer. We are in Leo season, which will make this month wild and crazy. Mars and Mercury are positioned in Virgo, and Venus retrogrades in Leo.
There is a permanent conflict between the desire to attract attention and perfectionism. We become more attentive to details, but not necessarily in a positive sense. It is possible that we want to see black where there is white and this, from the point of view of relationships, brings a lot of unpleasantness.
At the same time, we will enjoy two full moons – on August 1 (in Aquarius) and August 30 (in Pisces). It is almost as if the Universe begins and ends the month with a sign to pay more attention to spirituality and what exactly brings us a state of fulfillment.
On August 16, 2023, we have a new moon in Leo, which will shake our love partnerships quite a bit, bringing shadows from the past.
On August 23, the Virgo season begins, bringing more seriousness and pragmatism. Also from August 23, Mercury begins a retrograde movement, also in Virgo, bringing quite a lot of communication difficulties.
Before Mars moves into Libra (where it arrives on August 27, 2023), it makes quite several aspects with some powerful planets, such as Jupiter (August 1), Uranus (August 16), Neptune (22 August), and, finally, Pluto, on August 24. Mars gets our blood pumping and is the common thread that unites all these different energies throughout the month. He encourages us to expand, develop, detail our desires, be open to innovation, be honest and clear, remain firm in our decisions, and faithful to what we want.
Having said that, let’s see what the astrologers predict in the August love horoscope, for each zodiac sign.
In August, Aries could have beautiful moments in love. Your efforts to be passionate and involved in a relationship will bear fruit. If you are alone, you can meet someone special who will appreciate your authenticity and courage to get everything you want. In communication, you will be impulsive and direct, so you should be careful not to hurt your loved ones with your opinions.
Mars moves into your relationship sector on August 27, and then it will be time to open the ground for negotiation. Maybe between you and your partner, some discussions from the past remained unfinished. Or maybe you have something to solve in a friendship relationship, where there would still be things to say. Stable relationships could be put to the test, and honest communication will be essential to overcome any obstacles.
Venus dances retrograde in your domestic sector, slowing things down a bit here and emphasizing the importance of family. You may feel the need for freedom, to break away from the routine, to move away from home. A trip could be of great help to you.

The month of August will be full of passion and romance in your love relationship. Make sure you give and receive affection and appreciation in full. If you are single, you attract all eyes and a beautiful love relationship could be born.
Make the most of this month, because on August 27 Mars leaves your sign and enters a different sector of your birth chart – the resource sector. Note the days of August 1, 16, and 22, because these are your power dates because Mars in Virgo makes some connections. These are the days when it is possible to have interesting events, which cause growth and transformation, without the need to lift even a single finger. Passion, travel, and the accumulation of knowledge are your areas of expansion, so pay attention to them. Mars moving into your resource sector on August 27 will bring balance and better management of your time and talents. This may be the best month of the year for you.
Open and honest communication will strengthen your relationships of any nature, especially with your loved one. If you are single, a strong connection with someone with similar interests could occur.
The month of August brings harmony and balance to your relationships. Be open to compromises and look for fair solutions in any situation.

There is a good chance that you will meet someone who understands you and complements you perfectly.
If you are already in a relationship, take advantage of the next period to do all kinds of romantic activities with your partner, because you will discover a lot about each other. You will open your souls more easily. Take time for the two of you.
The Full Moon of August 1 lights up your house and home. It is possible that a new beginning is needed in this sector. The New Moon on August 16 illuminates the highest point of your birth chart, bringing you honor and recognition for all the work you have done so far. Maybe you want to be seen for the things you brought into your home. Maybe you need more appreciation? Or, on the contrary, you want a break. Think carefully about what your real needs are. Because there are very high chances that dissatisfaction and frustration will appear in your relationship. And if you don’t know what you want, you won’t be able to solve these problems. Unfortunately, you can also expect betrayals or breakups.
If you are single, don’t hook up with anyone, at least not until Venus ends its retrograde on September 4.
Mars in your career sector makes some connections this month (August 1, 16, and 22). Do not hesitate to take a step forward, because you have extraordinarily favorable aspects in the area of career and finances. All your resources will go towards the professional side and you will be quite distant from your life partner. Tensions related to your partner’s need for freedom and adventure may arise, which may affect the stability of the relationship. In addition, he may be tempted to seek new experiences and connections, which could lead to situations of infidelity or breakups. To avoid such scenarios, it is recommended to be more present.
If you are alone, there are not many occasions when you can meet someone who will become your lover, because your priorities are different in the next period.
Mars makes several trine aspects this month, in your sector of adventure and learning. These transits will give you a lot of power and make you feel much more confident than you have been lately. Great care! The Full Moon on August 1 highlights your financial situation. Unexpected expenses arise. These could spark discussions in your relationship. Use the power you just received from the universe to support your point of view, maturely. Remember together that what you are building now is for a common future. If you speak openly you will solve any problem.
If you are single, it is important to be patient and wait for the right person, because this month can be favorable for meeting someone special who will be compatible with your values.
