Jun 21 – Jul 22

When you're feeling this serious, casual dating just doesn't work. Now is the time to rethink what you really want for the long term, and then take steps to meet your match – or to keep things moving if you've already got your eye on someone special!

Monday's not the most inspirational day, heart-wise – plan some you-time and serious relaxation. Be ready to re-explain yourself to your sweetie or a potential one around Wednesday; your communication, whether verbal, email or otherwise, could be misinterpreted in an almost comical way. The things you're learning about love and (perhaps more importantly) about yourself between Thursday and Saturday will last and last, long after the current emotions have faded. Look at the big picture now. On Sunday, you're particularly tuned in to others with what's practically a sixth sense – interesting!

There’s a lightness in the air during the Mercury-Venus sextile on September 3 that even a deeply emotional sign like you can appreciate. Sometimes you have to take a break from all the seriousness and just have some fun!

A Mars-Venus square on the eighth brings sensual energy, and you may experience lust at first sight for the first time in a while. If you’re single, go for it! If you’re currently involved with someone, weigh the consequences before doing anything you might regret later.

The new moon (your ruler) is in logical Virgo on September 9, and you don’t really understand this earthy, practical approach to love. The best thing about it might be the strong sense of dedication, which you can totally get behind.

You’re intensely curious about your partner or crush during the sun-Mercury conjunction on the twentieth, and you’ll have a lot of resources at your fingertips to help you find out what you want to know. Checking out social media is a good first step, but don’t believe everything you see.

A Mars-Mercury trine on September 23 is a great power pairing, improving concentration and mental focus. If you’re usually distracted when your partner or date is talking, this will be a very welcome change.
