How this Summer's Transits will Affect Your Love Life
The planetary transits occurring this summer offer plenty of opportunities to spice up your love life -- and avoid any potential pitfalls. Here’s to a sexy, sizzling summer!

Venus, the planet of love and relationships, moves into a heavenly trine with Neptune on July 4, making love dreamy. On July 9, Venus forms an opposition with passionate Pluto. While power struggles are certainly possible in intimate relationships, a pleasurable sextile from the expansive planet Jupiter helps Venus stay cheerful and upbeat.

July 13 and 14 may bring a dose of reality to an ongoing relationship as Venus is squared by serious Saturn. Try not to get discouraged, as this transit is temporary.

Jupiter is in the love spotlight for the next year as it travels through the sensual sign of Taurus. Use this energy to make your date nights unforgettable. Since Taurus is the sign of sensuality and Jupiter is all about expansion, this is definitely the time to get your groove on. Explore all your senses with your partner, engaging in pleasurable activities for the eyes, ears, nose, body and mouth.

August brings plenty of action as Venus in Leo forms an easy fire trine to exciting, surprising Uranus on August 1. This transit has the potential to bring fun, spontaneous people into our lives, so make the most of it. On August 8, Venus comes into sextile with Saturn, which adds a stabilizing influence to all the excitement we may have been experiencing. Now we will know if we’re in it for the long term, or if it’s just been a fun summer fling.

Mercury retrograde from August 3 to August 26 may bring communication issues to the forefront. Nitpicking and drama should be avoided now, so keep your verbal swordplay at a minimum for best results. If you can, try and take everything with a grain of salt. You may find that your conflicts fade away as Mercury resumes direct motion at the end of August.

Mars, planet of lust, anger and passion, comes into play on August 10 as it forms a square to Uranus and an opposition to Pluto. Though we may feel challenged by lovers and significant others at this time, there is the potential for some electrical interplays. Don’t try too hard to work out your fights logically; instead, burn off steam by doing something physical with your partner -- preferably in bed!

August finishes on a high note as a vibrant Sun-Venus interaction August 19 to 21 in the sign of Leo, brings a playful, romantic vibe into the skies. Take advantage of these happy days to plan fun, spontaneous activities that bring out the inner child in both of you.
