Jupiter squares Pluto on August 4th, which will make you feel kinkier than usual. Be adventurous well before the 12th, when Mercury goes retrograde; you don’t want any mishaps! Things settle and get more down-to-earth on September 19 when Venus enters Virgo. By the time Mercury goes direct on September 5, you’ll know exactly what you need from your partner/s.

If you’re dating multiple people, beware of texting accidents once Mercury goes retro, and try not to commit unless the messenger goes direct. Once Mercury enters your sign on September 9, you’ll be ready to communicate your needs in every way. Things also get more romantic on September 9 when Venus takes up residence in your sign, but don’t let it bog you down with routine.

Mercury retrograde will leave you doubting your partner, but you may regret it if you cut them off too soon. The full moon on September 6 will have some major effects on you.

Prepare for old flames to come back into the picture during Mercury retrograde. While you may feel the temptation to see if they’ve still got it, resist the urge.

Are you dating a hero or a zero? You may need to reconsider and re-evaluate your own self worth. September will bring you a new relationship and adventures that will make you wonder why you even bothered with scumbags in the first place. You’ll want to pin your new boo down ASAP, but don’t pressure them; use your charms to keep them right where you want them.

The full moon on August 7 will make you sexually adventurous, but be careful – trying a new carnal experience during Mercury retrograde can make things weird for everyone involved, or even result in injury.

Mercury, your ruling planet, will throw you for an extra loop when it goes retrograde. You’ll also have extra charisma this month that will make you irresistible.

Mercury retrograde may set the stage for a major breakup that will lead to an equally major upgrade. Don’t be surprised if you end up hooking up with a friend on the down low. Things relax on September 19 when Venus enters Virgo; you’ll have a more toned-down approach to love and sex, and you’ll realize some adventures are not worth the drama.
