Summer may be coming to a close, but your love life is just heating up! Astrologer Danielle Mercurio breaks down exactly what the stars have in store for you and your relationship the last week of August, with your weekly love horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's really important that you set aside some time for yourself this week to get clear on your upcoming goals. You have a lot on your plate right now and going nonstop isn't doing you any favors. By giving yourself permission to slow down, you'll find it easier to prioritize and also delegate as needed. Don't be afraid to ask your partner to help out with a thing or two too!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A major surprise is in store for you this week, and it's likely early on. It's rare that you take anything for granted and this is certainly not the time to do so. Expect an answer to a lingering relationship question or more insight on a project or wedding idea you've been toying with. Stay open to the possibilities and be amazed by what you receive in turn. And when you get it, be sure to share the good news with family and friends.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Make it a priority to stay cool and find your Zen this week. Mercury will be falling back into retrograde August 30th until September 22nd, and sometimes the backwards energy can mess with your head.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Keep your trust and make your focus on having fun.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
After your birthday, it may have felt like things went to a standstill in your relationship and career.

Busy bee! How is it that you have so much activity and excitement buzzing around you right now?

The more you show up to the world as your sweet and cheery self, the more the world starts to do favors on your behalf. Let it happen and smile when it does.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
As Mercury goes retrograde on August 30th, you may be grimacing at what that could mean for you and your precious agenda. Use these next few weeks to practice the art of letting go and trust that everything always works out as best intended. Not everyone expects you to be in charge, your partner included, and you shouldn't either. The more you can pause and reflect before impulsively taking on a task, the better. Check to make sure it's really right for you first.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
The energy this week is asking you to take time to reflect on what you really want and what makes your heart and soul sing, as opposed to what you believe is expected of you by others. Reach out to discuss with a close friend and brainstorm out the ideas with your partner. The more open and excited you are about the possibilities, the easier it is to manage and eventually see results.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This week you may feel like going with the flow and that will serve you just fine. A lot of areas of your life are wrapping up and it's important to take time and meditate on where you see yourself moving forward.

Keep communication open with your partner, as he or she will provide valuable insight and emotional support.
