Welcome to August, Scorpio! At the end of July, one of your ruling planets, warrior Mars, filled your sex life with fire and you enjoyed orgasms galore. Sunday, August 8, brings a new moon in attention-loving Leo. You’re one of the most sexual signs of the zodiac, and proud of it, Scorpio. But beware of focusing your powers solely on making your partner happy. Your pleasure matters too. The new moon is an ideal time to masturbate, explore your body, or be a pillow princess for a bit while your partner does the hard work. You’ve earned it.
When communication planet Mercury enters practical Virgo on Wednesday, August 11, the universe challenges you to engage in direct communication. Don’t be passive-aggressive, and stop it with the cryptic messages on social media. If you want something from a crush or partner, you have to tell them. You can do it, Scorpio.
Your love life comes into focus when romance planet Venus enters its home sign of Libra on Monday, August 16. Your task is to notice and express appreciation for all the wonderful things people do for you, whether they’re friends or lovers. At times, your dark side can take over, Scorpio, and everything may seem glass half-empty. The reality is that you have so many people who care about you. Focus on the good, and bask in the feeling of how loved you really are.
Then, independent planet Uranus goes retrograde from Thursday, August 19 to Friday, January 14 in luxurious Taurus. Life is likely to feel less chaotic during these months. You tend to have a flair for the dramatic, Scorpio, whether you can admit it or not. Your task during this retrograde is to continue practicing direct communication in all of your relationships.
So far, August has been about staying in, getting laid, and utilizing healthy communication skills. But during the bright full moon in Aquarius on Sunday, August 22, you should go out and let the world see how fabulous you are. Connect with friends this weekend, and go dancing if you can, even if it’s in someone’s apartment. Romances come and go, but friends are there through good times and bad. Remember to honor those relationships by making time for them. Sunday, August 22 also marks the start of practical Virgo season, and it’s very responsible of you to carve out time for tending to your most important friendships.
When communication planet Mercury enters romantic Libra on Monday, August 30, all this healthy communication pays off. Relationships are happier, easier, and filled with more fun sex and less make-up sex. Keep it up, Scorpio, and see you in September!
