We sussed out what your star sign says about your sex life next month, (aka August, aka the month of the Leo), and it’s about to get a whole lot steamier in ‘ere.
Depending on your zodiac, and depending on whether you rely on unconfirmed horoscopes to dictate your life trajectory (for which I defs do), you can expect a whole mixed bag of wonderfully adventurous sex scenarios – combined with a few woefully mundane sex upsets.
But, if your humble sexscope offers a few distressing signals, fear not…for what is great sex if you haven’t experienced the bottom of the barrel mating ritual-type kinds of sex, first?
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
Oh my, you’re in for a steamy month. With Mars, the sun, Venus and the new moon all aligning in your sign this month, Leos can expect a whole tidal wave of fun and excitement. You’ll begin to feel a few sensual feelings – which can only be a good first start – and there’s a good chance you’ll be coupling up with another equally as sensual being very soon…
When July 2 rolls around, the total solar eclipse in Cancer will ignite a few more serious emotions that could leave you and your lover closer than ever. The better news here is that Mercury in retrograde on July 7 will urge you two to take things to new physical heights. Ohhhh, go for gold.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 23)
Oh Virgo, this isn’t quite your month I’m afraid. You can expect to encounter a few unexpected schedule shake-ups, like last-min cancelled plans and flakey friends, tech stuff ups and mix-ups in general. To deal with all the unexpected turns in the coming weeks, it’s recommended that you try and go with the flow – don’t resist.
In terms of what this means for your sex drive, it could very well mean you’re well on your way to a new fling or unexpected love affair. Uranus in retrograde on August 11 suggests you probably won’t recognise it when it arrives. This love/lust situation will be more of a slow burn, more of a Kat Stratford and Patrick Verona kind of story.
You’re affectionate right now and Venus entering your sign on August 21 will have you feeling a whole lot more active with your partner (whoever that may be).
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 23)
Libras, you may be feeling a little lonely lately. You currently don’t have any sensual partners in the picture, but that doesn’t mean your chances of a steamy month are all but over. When Mercury enters Leo on August 11, you’ll notice an irresistible presence pop up on your radar.
On August 21, Venus will enter Virgo and all signs are leading to more sexual pleasures. Use your intelligence and curiosity for the unknown to your absolute advantage.
Best night to get laid? August 23. Pencil it in and clear your sched’.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)
With the planets relatively calm in the first half of August, Scorpios should use the opportunity to offer themselves some self-love. It’s recommended you give your love life a break and embrace the increased calmness to work on your own needs.
For Scorpios, August is looking to be more of a laid-back month. If you do meet a potential cutie, opt for a slow burn rather than an instant firestorm. Put an asterisk next to August 30 because the new moon in Virgo will trigger some seriously seductive vibes…
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 22)
Embrace your travel bug next month and allow your curiosity for adventure to lead you to some seriously sensual scenarios. When Mars enters Leo on July 1, there’s a huge chance you could meet someone with significant situation-ship potential, so go for gold.
Beware: with Chiron in retrograde straight after Mercury’s, your sex drive will likely come to a huge screaming halt. This could leave you feeling a little nostalgic and craving past lovers. This increased emotion could throw you off your natural course, so it’s advised you line up a rebound STAT.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20)
Capricorns, you’re hard bloody workers and you know what you want. With such a determined drive, your ambition can often get in the way of your sexual adventures. To relieve your built up stress, use Venus is Leo as an opportunity to get laid.
When Mercury enters Virgo on August 29, you’ll likely be feeling extra seductive. Embrace this and line up a dinner date (with no plans after). Your best night to get laid is August 30, so make sure you’re prepared for some endurance.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
With such a knack for being extremely selective about who you get steamy with, the first half of August will probably pan out to be pretty quiet. Use this time to sort out some complex emotions you may be having.
The full moon will enter Aquarius on August 15, meaning your libido will pick up and you’ll be ready for some sexual experience. Beware though, Mars entering Virgo on August 18 may have you developing some more serious feelings for your crush. With Venus entering Virgo on August 21, they could develop some similar feelings.
Pisces (Feb 18 – March 20)
It’s time to work on your own emotional wellness. Take August to work on yourself and pass up any booty calls for nights in. When Mercury enters Leo on August 11, you can expect a pretty spontaneous match up as your friend plays wingman/woman.
When the full moon in your sign occur on August 15, your sex drive is reawakened as your love life returns to its natural course. Use August as an opportunity to negotiate your headspace.
Aries (March 20 – April 20)
The good news is your sex life is on fireeeeee and you can expect to be pretty busy during the month of August. As you get busy with satisfying others, ensure you’re not neglecting your own personal needs.
When Mercury enters Leo on August 11, use this as an opportunity to be a little adventurous and experiential in the bedroom. Use the added curiosity to explore previously untouched territories…
On August 29 Mercury will enter Virgo and you’ll likely start questioning your relation/situation-ships.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Okay Taureans, last month was extremely hectic with 5 planets in retrograde. Thankfully though, you can expect some relief throughout most of August. Although nothing has really been exciting you lately, use the full moon on August 15 as a chance to shake things up and step outside your comfort zone.
In terms of romance, when the sun enters Virgo on the 23rd you can expect to become a little more indecisive about who you want to keep around. Your recent flings could soon be distant memories, but ensure you remain honest and open as you reconsider things. The new moon in Virgo on the 13th could have you feeling very emotionally vulnerable…but it’ll pay off.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
With Venus still in Leo it seems your sex drive won’t die down. You can’t get enough of whoever you’re seeing and your romantic passions are running red hot. With Mercury entering Leo on August 11, you and your lover can expect a few more steamy nights.
Use your strong communication skills to share your feelings with your fellow lover. When Venus enters Virgo on August 21, this is a good opportunity to remain open and honest with your partner.
Cancer (June 21 – July 23)
Cancers, you’ve been a little greedy lately. Use the month of August to ensure the equilibrium in your relation/situation-ships are balanced; ensure you lover’s needs are being satisfied as much as your own.
Uranus’ retrograde on August 11 will likely bring some complications to your libido. This could emerge in the form of physical pains, so urge your lover to relieve the tensions. The best day to get laid is on August 15 when the full moon is in Aquarius – your sensual side will be positively reawakened…
