Weekly Love Horoscope

Romance becomes much more spiritual and adventurous for you this week. If you're in a relationship, you'll feel determined to expand your mental and physical horizons with your partner. You may achieve this in several ways. For starters, you might both sign up for a class or workshop on a topic you wanted to learn more about. Another possibility is that international travel is on your agenda. Planning a trip abroad with your lover will be quite a romantic experience.

Monthly Horoscope

One of your siblings might go through an emotionally-charged situation early in the month. If this happens, do what you can to be the calm after their storm -- they will surely appreciate it. Another possibility is that near August 7 you and one of your siblings will have a disagreement that leads to some type of change related to a family decision or contractual matter. If this happens, it might have to do with one of your parents. Perhaps your mom or dad is sick and requires certain care. If that scenario does occur, you may not agree on how to handle things during this time -- the energy is too unstable. Your only option is to still choose to be the calm one during the family chaos. Understand that Mercury will also turn retrograde from August 12-September 5, and for most of this retrograde, will be at the top of your chart. This will add even more confusion and misunderstanding if the discussions with your sibling are about a parent. Alternatively, you might begin to have a misunderstanding with your boss. You may want to avoid pitching any ideas or presenting in front of him or her until mid-September if possible. On August 21, you may decide it's time to go back to school to earn an advanced degree, license, or certification. You may also pursue a new advertising, publishing, or broadcasting opportunity. It'll help you shine creatively.
If you're married or in a committed relationship, it's possible that after the August 12 you and your partner will feel as if communication is not what it typically is. There might be extra misunderstandings, or you might have a rough time making any vital decisions together. Hold off until after September 5 if possible. Financially, the two of you might also be in for a bit of trouble. Your partner might be tempted to make a reckless move near August 23 -- do your best to prevent it. If you're newly dating someone, take care not to rush into bed with each other too quickly. Unless, of course, you're up for a one night stand.
