The first week of August brings us back to the emotional depths we experienced back in June, so prepare to go as deep as you dare.
This time it's not Mercury Retrograde in Cancer -- it's Venus, the planet of beauty and relationships, in the sign of the Crab. On August 1, the goddess of love meets up with Saturn, the planet of stability and commitment. Saturn is currently traversing the deep waters of Scorpio, where it's been since late 2012 and will remain, on and off, through mid-2015. Share a free sample Personal Astrology Profile.

When Venus meets Saturn, especially in Water signs, we're being asked to confront our deepest feelings about love, partnership and what "forever" really means to us. This week and next, you may find yourself contemplating the meaning of your relationships -- why are you with your current partner and why did you choose any (or all) of your past loves? What you're learning is that it's really all about you -- your childhood, your relationships with your parents, your wounds and longings. Plunge deep, and don't be afraid to confront these sometimes-scary emotions.
Meditation, yoga, deep breathing and walks by any body of water are helpful during this transit. Remember, you're dealing with Water signs right now. If you can't get to the beach or lake, take a warm bath with some relaxing essential oils and candles, and instead of reflecting on your to-do list, contemplate the nature of your ability to love.
During this transit, Venus and Saturn are asking you to honor your feelings, nurture your needs and commit to yourself -- not others. That's the gift coming from this cosmic shift.
