Mars—planet of drive and courage—enters Gemini on August 20, where it will remain until March 25, 2023. Because Mars will later retrograde through Gemini on October 30—bringing up unresolved issues from the past—it’s important to take note about what is going on in your love life right now. Chances are, something your current situation will come up again when that happens. Keep a journal and take note of how your relationships are evolving right now. That way, it will be easier for you to solve problems when they arise in the future. In the meantime, this transit will encourage you to use your words and say what you mean, but do so with kindness and respect. Communication is essential when Mars is in Gemini, so dive into long texting conversations and late night phone calls. However, beware—Mars in Gemini will turn your tongue into a sassy weapon whenever you’re feeling irritated (or turned on)!

The sun enters clever, organized and intelligent Virgo on August 22, bringing the grounding energy of this mutable earth sign into your life. Virgo season is a beautiful time to let acts of service be your most fluent love language, as this selfless zodiac sign understands the power of lending a helping hand.

On August 24, Uranus—planet of revolution and independence—will station retrograde, asking you to assess the level of stability and excitement in your relationships. This may evoke a series of breakups, but it could also mark the beginning of an exciting new connection. Regardless of what happens, you can expect the unexpected in your love life during this time. And once Mercury moves into Libra on August 25, it will smooth your communication skills and help you see eye-to-eye. If you and your SO aren’t getting along, Mercury in Libra could help you solve the problem and remain diplomatic. By the time a new moon in Virgo takes place on August 27, it will encourage you to set boundaries and rethink the terms of your relationships. This love story is starting to get juicy!

Here’s what the love department has in store for you this month, according to your sun sign and/or rising sign:

Aries

Sometimes less is more, dear ram! And as Venus makes its way through Leo starting August 11, you’ll want to remember that you don’t always need to push to make things happen. You don’t want to shut off completely, but keeping your cards close to your chest or being a little less available will bring a sense of mystery to you. While there might be an ulterior motive to your unavailable disposition, you actually will have a ton of personal engagements on your plate when Mars shifts into Gemini on August 20. This change will manifest on the new moon in Virgo, which rises on August 27, so pay attention to the way the chips fall. This new moon will be the perfect cosmic environment to peak your crush’s interest through social media posts, especially if you’re looking super cute while having fun with your pals. Just be mindful that your coy game of hard-to-get doesn’t go too far. If you truly do share a romantic interest with someone, it won’t serve you to totally blow them off (but it also won’t hurt for them to realize you have a vibrant life outside of your dating status).

Historically speaking, have you been right when you suspected your exes of infidelity, or were you making accusations based on fear?
