Numerology has found a connection between letters and numbers that could tell you how compatible you are with your partner or suitor if you know what the love number corresponds to both of you. Finding that number is not that difficult, you just have to add the values that the letters of your name have until it is reduced to a single figure.
It is very similar to the procedure that is carried out to find out your personal number, with the difference that numerology offers us a table to identify the one that corresponds to each letter of our name.
1 – A, J, S 2 – B, K, T 3 – C, L, U 4 – D, M, V 5 – E, N, W 6 – F, O, X 7 – G, P, Y 8 – H, Q, Z 9 – I, R
For example, for the name José Pérez the number in love is made as follows: 1 + 6 + 1 + 5 + 7 + 5 + 9 + 5 + 8 = 47, then 4 + 7 = 11 and finally 1+ 1 = 2. José Pérez’s number is 2. Now that we know how to calculate the numerological number, we only need to see which numbers are most compatible with yours.
Number 1 They are people who overflow with confidence and charisma. Likewise, they are characterized by having many friends, but they do not like to have their privacy violated. They are compatible with other 1, 2, 6 and 9.
Number 2 They are fully committed to their partners and are quite detailed. They need someone who has similar personalities like the numbers 4, 6 and 8.
Number 3 If it is necessary to define in a single word those who have this figure, it is: fickle. They do not like to feel tied, on the contrary, they adore freedom. They are compatible with 1, 5, 7 and 8.
Number 4 When they are not in balance they are usually very dramatic, being able to detest themselves. They need orderly people to help them find harmony like the 2, 4, 6 and 8.
Number 5 This number is a free soul that is governed by its own rules. They are smart and very creative, but quite distracted. They get along well with the 1, 8 and 9.
Number 6 They are a person who needs to feel safe so as not to lose their balance. They have a natural gift for resolving conflicts between friends. They are compatible with the 2, 4, 6 and 8.
Number 7 They usually live in their reality, they are romantic, sweet, loving and believe in true love. They will get along well with the 3, 5, 7 and 9.
Number 8 They need to be in complete control of the relationship and trust their partner 100 percent. They panic when they see things getting out of hand. They are compatible with 3, 4 and 6.
Number 9 They are adventurous and with a degree of madness that others love. However, not all of them keep up with their rhythm so they will get along well with 1, 2, 5 and 7.
I’ve decided to start posting more about things that I’m currently experiencing. This way I can share with you what I’m learning, as I go through it. My hope is that this will allow you to prepare and avoid some of the pitfalls I’ve encountered.
In the first post of this type of post, I’ll be talking about what a Numerology Personal 9 Year involves. MEANING… if you’re currently in a 9 Personal Year, or are getting ready to go into one, you might want to read this article in order to learn as much as you can from my blunders.
To begin, you figure out what Personal Year you’re in by adding your birth month (single digit, so 11 becomes 2 and 12 becomes 3), to your birthday (again single digit, so 15 becomes 6, 23 becomes 5, and so forth), to the current year, which is (2+0+2+0 = 4). Thus a March 20 birthday becomes 3+2+4 = 9.
If your end result is a double digit, go ahead and reduce it down to one digit again, but retain the other digits for further detail. Hence, September 23 becomes 9+5+4 = 18…. adding 1+8 = 9. OR… an 18/9.
9 is your personal year. The 1 and 8 are supporting cast members, flavoring if you will.
Personally, I’m in an 18/9 Year. First off let me openly share that 9 Personal Years are my least favorite years… by a freakin’ mile.
Still, what I’m learning about this very personal 9 year is that it’s a year for endings, not beginnings. Or perhaps better said, it’s a year of completion. A year of putting a period at the end of all the previous 9 years you’ve just been through.
As such, you must think back 9 years ago when you entered into your 1 personal year. Then, understand that your mission this year is to review, evaluate, and discard or say goodbye to what has gone on before that isn’t worth carrying forward into your next 9 year cycle. All because next year, January 1, 2021, you enter an entirely new cycle. And that my friends, is the truly GREAT news.
In the meantime, please understand just how fully I understand this reviewing process isn’t great. In fact, it’s ugly, painful, and downright warty!
As a result, I’ve shed many tears and allowed temper tantrums to spiral completely out-of-control for most of the year.
Understand though that my last 9 years have been as bad as any cycle can get. I lost my daughter in my 2 year. Ended a 30 year marriage in my 5 year. Had to move out of a home I had lived in for 19 years in my 5 as well. My dad passed away in my 6 year. I elected to move again, late in my 6 year, back to try to make my marriage work. My now ex-husband had an aortic aneurysm in my 7 year, but luckily survived… only by the grace of God since it was in the process of actually rupturing when caught. THEN… he passed away unexpectedly, of a major heart attack, in my 8 year. Which forced me to quickly regroup and go onto repair, dismantle, and go through 21 years of stuff in that house… all in order to need to move again.
So a divorce, 3 moves, the loss of a child, loss of a father, and loss of a partner and friend of 32 years all happened in my last 9 year cycle. Consequently, reviewing it all was torturous on my best day. Particularly since during the review you’re forced to look at what you wished you had done differently. All as you come to the realization that it’s really all gone… forever. I think that’s the point unfortunately.
HOWEVER, the good news is, I’ve rather automatically been cleaning out closets, as I release fountains of emotions, and try very hard to forgive myself for what I perceive as my shortfalls. AND… I get to FINALLY put an end to what was definitely a tragic cycle.
Naturally, I’ll carry the memories and emotions with me forever. BUT my job this year is to release the regrets, understand why I did and didn’t do what I did, and lay it all down. Leave it there. Let time and God’s mercy cleanse as much of it as possible for me. It really is all I can do. So that’s what I, and you, are meant to do in a 9 year. Review and release.
THIS ENABLES us to prepare for the next 9 Year Cycle. As well as work hard to get our money, our homes, our kids and families, and our moods in a better place… because there’s nothing left to be done with whatever’s already gone. It took me awhile, but I’m finally realizing that.
TOO, we get to prepare for the good that, in my mind, simply has to follow. I, for one, am definitely ready for a reset. I’m ready for whatever is next, as long as it’s not more of the same. Hence, the reason we must clean out, release, let go, and grow our faith that the next 9 will be fabulous… we’re due, right?
We must also TRUST that the powers that be have only our best interest at heart, and they do. Also understand that they know what we’ve been through and now are fully prepared to lead us to where we’re meant to spend the next 9 years. Provided, of course, we don’t drag some of our toxicity with us… that free will thing can trip up their plans. Remember that.
In summary, if you’re in a 9 and haven’t begun your “clearing the slate” process, do it now. Let go of any job, relationship, financial burden, house, or any other little old thing you’ve been dragging around longer than you should have. You know what those things are. I know you know.
It allows you to prepare proactively for the new, the better, and the fabulous.
9 years suck though. No doubt about it. No one likes endings. And for most of us there will be endings, particularly if we’re afraid to change and release the familiar “bad” in our lives. Although I should also add that many times during a 9 if you don’t voluntarily release something that’s past the due-date, the Universe will just swipe it away. So prepare for the swiping if you can’t do the deed.
The 1 and the 8 that support my 9 are relevant in that the 1 means I need to focus on my needs, wants, and desires this year more than I focus on what someone else wants, needs, and desires for or from me. And the 8 is a “right use of power and money” year. So, I have to pay more attention to how, when, and where I earn and spend money (definitely true since I now sole support). Also, if I do retain any power I’m required to use it with grace and mercy.
Know too that if you’re in a 9 year, it’s not a year to start new things… it’s about finishing up and letting go. In truth, you’re probably far too tired to do very much initiating right now anyway… as when you try to do something spectacular your old problems crop up and steal the show. You’ll definitely be busy. Leave all things NEW to next year.
Hope this helps. 9’s are tough. But they’re needed and necessary in order to get onto something else… anything else really (ha)!
Welllll, 2020 wouldn’t be complete without another catastrophic astrological aspect. Fun! This time, we’re experiencing a lil something called the Hammer of Thor, which brings us, um, massive chaos until September 21. Over the next few weeks, we can expect major revelations on a personal and global level.
You may be asking yourself, What exactly is the Hammer of Thor? Is Chris Hemsworth involved? (Sry, no.) Cosmically speaking, it’s a very intense astrological aspect (aka a connection between planets). The Hammer of Thor occurs when two planets form a square (aka make a 90 degree-angle) and a sesquisquare (aka make a 135 degree-angle). All of this commotion forms a fraught triangle in the cosmos.
In this case, the planetary squares are arising from the Sun and Mercury in Virgo and the Nodes of Destiny (two super-important points in the sky, which are currently transiting the Gemini and Sagittarius axis). The sesquisquare is occurring between the Sun and Mercury in Virgo and Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. When Mercury enters Libra on September 5 and Venus enters Leo on September 6, we’ll feel this powerful energy on a deep level. Emotions will be high, especially with Mars’ retrograde in Aries beginning on September 9. TL;DR: Prepare to fight for the truth and defend your honor.
Thor’s Hammer can and will expose juicy secrets, scandals, and clandestine behavior. The North Node in Gemini is being activated by this transit, which means we can expect to hear two versions of the story (because Gemini is known to tell two different tales) and do things twice (because Gemini is a dualistic sign). We’re also seeking justice due to the South Node’s position in Sagittarius.
With the November elections heating up, this aspect could indicate major national and global change. Old systems will crumble, only to be rebuilt in a better way. Politicians and celebrities will have their truths aired out for all to see—and so will the rest of us.
A coworker may be talking behind your back, making you extra paranoid. Within a few days of the rumors starting, you’ll find yourself in a confrontation with your colleague. Hopefully, you can shut the gossip down.
Your friends do not approve of your new crush, which is making you pause and reflect on whether or not you want to move forward in your budding relationship. Don’t let anyone manipulate you—not even your besties. Listen to your heart.
You need to create boundaries for yourself and your relationships. Focus on getting all your work done without distractions. Create a space for yourself that allows you to put your needs first, then deal with everyone else in your life.
Everyone needs time away from their family to emotionally regroup. After all, you’re not one to willfully insert your opinions in dramz. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb and just chill.
After a long summer of emotional compromises, you’re finally taking your power back. If this makes you seem like a diva to your friends, colleagues, and family, so be it. You’re the fiercest sign of the zodiac—start acting like it. No more bending over backward for anyone.
Finding your place in life is always hard, and your current existential crisis isn’t helping. Look inward to find your calling, not within another person. Only you can get yourself out of this rut. Focus on healing yourself.
It’s never too late to do the right thing, even if the drama happened forevs ago. Embrace your beliefs and reach out to make amends. This will mend your heart and aid in opening you up to new possibilities.
You may feel unsupported by your crew…because they’re talking behind your back. Real talk: Friends are supposed to support you, not make fun of you. If they continue to be unkind, then it’s time to cut the cord.
More often than not, you feel as though you have to let your squad know about your frustrations with them. Instead of bluntly blurting out your feels, take a step back. Find a way to calmly discuss your sentiments to avoid arguments.
You won’t stop until justice is served, so use your platform to share your beliefs and raise money for charities and causes you believe in. Use your voice to make changes—they’re needed.
Your intuition is making you jump to conclusions that aren’t necessarily factual. You may not ever know how your boo is really feeling—but that’s okay! Don’t let paranoia, confusion, and anxiety control your actions.
Major shifts are happening at work, and they’re affecting your emotional well-being. Talk with your supervisor to make sure you understand your new duties, and schedule time to learn how to implement them. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification or support!
We’ve always been fascinated by people who barely graze the pillow before slipping into a deep sleep, as if by a hypnotist’s snap. The people who doze off in doctor’s office waiting rooms, on park benches and aboard planes (even as the snack cart barrels by). And while there are tons of factors that affect your snoozing habits (like diet and stress levels), did you ever wonder how your zodiac placements might play a role in how you sleep? Here are three signs who are like walking sleep meditations (and three who need to start listening ASAP).
The Best Sleepers
1. Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Like listening to swaying wind chimes or sipping Palomas, sleep is just another delicious sensory pleasure for Taurus. They see no problem climbing into bed early and emerging as late as their schedule will allow the next day. The grounded earth signs take comfort in their familiar evening rituals: cooking up a comforting dinner at 7, dipping into a bath at 8, indulging in a few chapters of a Jane Austen novel at 9 and tucking themselves in at 10. Taurus’s bed is their throne, surrounded by their thriving houseplants and overpriced candle collection. Can we really blame them for being heavy sleepers?
2. Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
With imaginative Neptune as their ruler, Pisces is all about blurring the boundaries between reality and fantasy, the conscious and subconscious. The intuitive water signs are deeply connected to their poetic dreamworld (ask anyone who’s watched them space out mid-sentence). But sleep is more than just a playground for Pisces to explore their dreams; it’s a necessary retreat. The emotional chameleons take on the feelings of everyone they’ve encountered in a day—the friend who’s going through a breakup, the co-worker who’s overloaded with projects. So Pisces needs to escape to their sleep sanctuary to recharge. Just be sure to wake them up before they doze through work…or lunch.
3. Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 21)
Libra is on a lifelong quest for artistic beauty and balance, and their sleeping habits are no exception. The air signs need to devote equal energy to each chapter of their day, from grabbing smoothies with an old friend to nurturing their garden and yes, getting their full eight hours of rest. Libra has to feel at ease before drifting to sleep, though, and knows just how to set the scene for bedtime. Think: a 12-step skincare routine, warm neutral pillows, a calming playlist and 25 good night texts. If Libra is certain they’re on good terms with the people they cherish, the darlings of the zodiac will allow sleep to sweep them up like a warm breeze.
The Worst Sleepers
1. Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
We’re certain an Aries was behind the phrase, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Only the ram can make staying awake feel competitive, as though they’re stronger for having repelled sleep’s magnetic pull. Aries are hard-wired for action, so the idea of winding down after thrusting their firepower into a cardio dance workout, client proposal and bathroom renovation can feel daunting (and frankly, boring). The spark plugs of the zodiac might find themselves jolted awake with a destination idea for their vacation list or a vision of their next tattoo (and screw it, why not get it inked tomorrow?). They’ve got a trail to blaze, people.
2. Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Let’s talk about Gemini’s nightly routine. Kidding. The air signs prefer freedom and fluidity, coloring outside the lines of rigid structures like “bedtimes.” So even if they’re physically exhausted by nightfall, Gemini’s insatiable brain continues to crave stimulation. Their path to 2 a.m. is never the same. Watching an enlightening documentary on harvesting coffee leads to googling the best brew in their neighborhood leads to reading a longform article about shopping locally…you get the idea. To avoid waking up with their face squished against a screen, Gem should utilize their phone’s app-locking features (or have a loved one toss their tech out the window).
3. Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Before they even think about hitting the comforter, Virgo is committed to finishing a checklist that resembles the Star Wars opening crawl. These worker bees see no problem cutting into their sleep schedule to craft a meticulous quarterly presentation or to lay out their kid’s outfits for the week. When they finally allow themselves to head to bed, Virgo has a habit of fixating. The self-critical signs might find themselves performing a mental day in review: Should I have tipped the barista another dollar? Was my e-mail request too abrasive? They’ll need to rely on their famous problem-solving skills (along with some magnesium supplements they’ve researched) to learn how to let go.
2020 is certainly one for the books. This year started off with a lot of intense astrological energy and has not slowed down at all. There’s been so much planetary action swerving through the cosmos that all of our heads are getting dizzy.
No one could have predicted the specifics of this wild year, but for many in the astrological community, it’s not a total surprise. Years ago, I had predicted 2020 was going to be an intense year because of the movement of the planets in the cosmos. Manymembers of the astrological community did. While astrology cannot dictate specific events, it can help us understand what’s to come based on where we’ve been. And, it can help us find comfort in these intense times by knowing that the future looks bright.
Looking at the past and upcoming astrological transits of the year, we can gauge that the year will end on an inspiring note — one that will bring the world together. In an effort to help us get through the next several months, I’ve compiled a list of the cosmic aspects that headed our way to help us all feel optimistic about the future.
As above, so below.
The Capricorn Stellium
A stellium occurs when there’s a cluster of planets in the same zodiac sign. This year, there are three planets (Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto) in the sign of Capricorn. When planets are in Capricorn, it usually means that there’s a drive for success and change. When transiting the sign of Capricorn, philosopher Jupiter looks at the world and aims to bring it together. Authoritative Saturn in Capricorn discusses how we can evolve the structures of society. And, transformative Pluto, when in Capricorn, wants to change the world for the better by discarding outdated views. All three of these powerful planets together in the same sign are serving to empower us on a grand level. They are forcing us to take a look at the world and our own personal lives in an effort to evolve.
Saturn In Aquarius
Saturn is the planet associated with traditions that we uphold as a society. When Saturn dipped its toes in the sign of innovative and rebellious Aquarius from March 21st to July 1st, we began to see the beginning of how a global community can rise together to revolt against the status quo. We also experienced the beginning of social distancing, which is the government (Saturn) telling us that we need to be more distant in how we engage with others (Aquarius). Saturn will reenter Aquarius on December 17th, until then it’ll be moving in retrograde motion in Capricorn.
So. Many. Retrogrades.
Well, this was the year of planetary retrogrades. In June alone, six planets were retrograde at the same time. And, if you’ve ever experienced an intense Mercury retrograde in the past, then you know that when other planets moonwalk backwards it can be intense. There were three retrogrades, however, that were and will be particularly impactful.
Mercury Retrograde from February 17 to March 10, June 18 to July 12, and October 14 to November 3 gave us all an emotional hangover (and still will). The planet of communication is backstroking through the emo water signs (Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio) this year which is making us feel our feels, and having us more anxious than ever.
Luckily, Venus, the planet of social advocacy, love, and money, started its retrograde journey on May 13 to June 25 in Gemini. Typically, this would be considered a complex time for love, but this time around it helped us assert our voices and come together as a society. We also began to feel optimistic about the pandemic, as Venus gave us hope that life can proceed as normal at some point.
Action planet Mars, which will start its retrograde journey in the sign of Aries from September 9 to November 13, will fall around the time of the election. We can expect to see more people coming out and expressing their views with passion to bring much needed change to the world.
The Great Conjunction
If you’ve ever watched Twin Peaks, they reference The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn (which happens every 18 to 19 years in different zodiac signs) as the entrance to The Black Lodge. Now, I’m not saying that we’ll all be transported to another dimension, though it may feel that way. But, December 21, when the conjunction of these two powerhouse planets occurs, will be a time of universal innovation and political shifts. Don’t forget that Aquarius is a humanitarian sign. When aligned in the sky in Aquarius, Jupiter and Saturn want to change the rules and give old structures a modern twist. We’ll get a boost of confidence and momentum as we head into 2021.
Astrology is more than just your Sun sign — all the planets in astrology represent different parts of who you are. So while your regular zodiac sign (or Sun sign) speaks to the core of your spirit, and your Moon zodiac sign tells you about your private and emotional side, what your Venus sign represents is the way you love and value. This applies to the way you approach relationships and romance, show your love and affection, and find beauty and pleasure in life. And understanding your Venus sign in astrology is a great way to explore your romantic values and dig into your love life from a fresh cosmic perspective, so let’s peep into this planet’s luscious and luxurious realm.
The planet Venus is named for the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure, so it makes sense that it rules over these same areas in astrology, too. Because Venus is about value, it governs our relationship to money, aesthetics, and what we find luxurious. But perhaps more notoriously, our Venus signs tell us about our style of loving and romancing — how we flirt, show affection, experience sensual pleasure, fall in love, derive value from relationships, and more. Using Sun sign astrology to find out the romantic compatibility between you and your crush is fun, but learning about your Venus sign is a more effective way to cut straight to the heart of love.
If you want to calculate your Venus sign, you can use a free online Venus sign calculator or you can set up a time to chat with a professional astrologer, who can give you insight into your astrology chart on the whole. For most people, you’ll only need to know your birth date and year in order to find out your Venus sign — but if you happen to be born on a day when Venus switched signs (which typically takes place about once a month), then you’ll also need to have your exact birth time and location handy to determine whether you’re one sign or another.
Once you’ve equipped yourself with your Venus sign, you can set off on getting to know the lovey-dovey, luxurious, romantic, and pleasure-seeking side of yourself. Check out the qualities of each Venus sign and how it affects your love life.
If Your Venus Sign Is Aries
Venus in Aries people aren’t afraid to take the lead when it comes to romance and getting what they want. Bold and impulsive, you’ll chase opportunities in love with a take-charge attitude. It’s easy for you to prioritize your own pleasure in love, and you tend to be more dominant in asking for what you want. Just beware of focusing too much on yourself in relationships.
If Your Venus Sign Is Taurus
Venus is Taurus’ ruling planet, so this is one of its most luxurious and beautiful placements. Venus in Taurus people are highly sensual, and it’s likely you enjoy showing lots of physical affection, as well as giving and receiving fancy gifts to show your love. You need a partner whose willing to indulge in life’s pleasures together — and it helps if someone’s willing to spoil you and splurge on delicious food and a fancy trip.
If Your Venus Sign Is Gemini
With Venus in Gemini, you’re likely to show a lot of your affection and love via your ability to communicate. You love to talk for hours about your feelings, and you find beauty and romantic connection mentally and verbally. You’re probably a pro at connecting emotionally with lovers via text and phone. It may be a struggle to settle down and commit, as you’re endlessly curious about what other pleasures the world has to offer.
If Your Venus Sign Is Cancer
Venus in Cancer is all about feeling emotionally secure in love. Comfort, commitment, and emotional safety is prioritized when it comes to relationships, so don’t expect to feel chill about a casual fling — this placement wants the real thing. Building trust and vulnerability is necessary for a Venus in Cancer to open its heart. As for date nights, you much prefer romantic nights at home cuddling or cooking over wild nights out on the town.
If Your Venus Sign Is Leo
There’s no sign that enjoys putting on a show in love the way Venus in Leo does. When you fall in love, you want to show it off and celebrate it — and it’s vital that your partner is down to do the same. You like to wear your passionate and fiery romantic sentiments on your sleeve. So long as your lover is willing to dote on you and make you the center of attention, you’ll bring generosity and a whole lot of warmth to any love connection.
If Your Venus Sign Is Virgo
When someone’s Venus is in analytical Virgo, they may find themselves trying quantify feelings when it comes to love and pleasure — but of course, such things can’t always be broken down by logic. You may have a tendency to be a “fixer” in relationships or be overly nit-picky on yourself or your partner, so be sure to temper your constructive criticisms with lots of loving explanations about your desire to make your bond more beautiful. Your eloquence with words can help deepen your romantic connections.
If Your Venus Sign Is Libra
Venus rules over the sign of Libra, so it’s one of the planet’s favorite parts of the zodiac to reside. Venus in Libra seeks beauty and harmony in all romantic relationships, and it absolutely hates conflict — so you’ll probably go to great lengths to avoid arguments and keep the peace. Just be sure to speak your needs in relationships and don’t bend to someone’s will just to avoid disagreements.
If Your Venus Sign Is Scorpio
Venus in Scorpio is intense, focused, and hyper-intimate — you don’t let people get close easily, but once you do, you’re as committed as can be. You crave depth and honesty in relationships, and won’t tolerate anyone who can’t deal with the hard truths in life. Be careful, though, as if this Venus sign feels threatened or betrayed in love, it won’t hesitate to wield its poisonous stinger.
If Your Venus Sign Is Sagittarius
If your Venus is in Sagittarius, you have one of the most adventurous romantic sides out there. Free-spirited and open-minded, you’re always looking for excitement in love and are willing to try new things and say “yes” to fun flings. Make sure you have a partner whose willing to mix things up, seek adventure and knowledge together, and spontaneously explore all of what life has to offer.
If Your Venus Sign Is Capricorn
People with Venus in Capricorn often take a more calculated approach to love. Your focus in romantic relationships is about commitment, building a foundation, and investing in a future with someone — so you’re less likely to put much energy toward casual flings. Stability, longevity, and realness are what you’re seeking, so be up front about what you’re looking for.
If Your Venus Sign Is Aquarius
When Venus is in Aquarius, it takes on a much more mental and objective approach to love. Your romantic style can come off as more aloof and distanced, but that doesn’t mean you can’t commit — you’re just not likely the lovey-dovey type who will get swept away in the throes of emotion. You’re not afraid to explore things outside the box in love, so never say never when it comes to pushing the boundaries of your experience.
If Your Venus Sign Is Pisces
Venus in Pisces is one of the more romantic and dreamy placements in the zodiac. For you, love is a total dream, and you enjoy connecting with love in a poetic and symbolic way — through art, fantasy, and pure, unadulterated romance. Practice staying grounded and be sure to set proper boundaries in love, as it’s easy for you to get carried away in your deep waves of emotion.
From August 8th to September 7th, tender Venus will be flirting its way in the sign of sentimental Cancer. Expect to feel your feels and be lost in emotions. Be prepared to level up your romance game and open your heart to others unconditionally—and to be more frugal with your spending. It’s time to start saving your pennies for a rainy day.
Here’s your horoscope. Remember to read your rising sign, too.
Embrace your happy homemaking skills and change up the decor in your dwelling. If you can’t repaint your space, then at least change up the flow of your abode by adding fun decorative pillows and adornments throughout your home. A little extra flair will go a long way now.
You are a flirt by nature, but now you’re filling your loving cup with extra sweet talk to your crush. Don’t let your tender expressions of affection overflow by promising more than you can offer to get their attention, as they may expect you to follow through.
It’s been a long time since you’ve indulged in good food, wine, or a luxurious bath. Use this time to get your confidence back—even if that means buying things you desire to boost your energy. You deserve to pamper yourself once in a while. Treat yourself!
You may be acting a tad passive-aggressive towards others, as you do not want to make waves in relationships at the moment. The caveat is that annoyances will come to light, which will cause frustrations that you don’t want to deal with to arise. Be honest with your feelings.
Where do you end and your partner begin? Although it may be hard, setting boundaries is super important for you right now. Creating limits will also benefit you because you will feel more independent. If you do not, then you will become codependent over the next few weeks.
You’ve been wanting to expand your friendship group and meet new peeps. However, you’re not ready for the responsibility and work that comes along with opening your heart up to acquaintances. What you’ll come to learn is that friendship takes effort and time. Take baby steps towards making new friends.
Your professional life is going seemingly well. People are taking notice of your hard efforts and rewarding you with amazing praise for your accomplishments. The only issue is that your colleagues may be jealous of your successes. Don’t let their negativity bring you down. Enjoy the fruits of your labor!
You’re evolving—but your friends and lovers aren’t. Their inability to transform is creating a lot of tension in your relationships. The best way to handle this energy is to focus on how you can elevate and reform yourself. Then you won’t worry about their lack of growth anymore.
You are drawn to intense relationships—even though the drama is all-consuming, you’ll relish the theatrics. All this goes against your freedom-loving sentiments. The sudden need for closeness with others may be confusing to you at first, but you’ll enjoy the passion and desire for intimacy.
The desire to commit now is strong—but you may want to be with your SO for all the wrong reasons. Don’t enter a relationship because you’re lonely or for status. Only commit to someone if you genuinely want to be with them for pure reasons. Then, it’ll last.
You’re a giver by nature. And now your generous heart is allowing others to freely take from you—without any questions. The only caveat for your 24/7 emotional availability is that being too available can lead to people taking your kindness for granted. Make sure they appreciate you.
Your creativity is heightened now, allowing your artistry to shine. Blend your intuition and sentimental nature into your expressive artistic style to showcase your innate talent. You have the magic touch now. Use it to your advantage. With your romantic heart and creative mind, there is nothing you can’t achieve.
