Your August Monthly Sex Horoscope Is Erupting With Fiery Energy

by Valerie Mesa

The summertime is hot and there's really no better time to unleash your inner sex goddess. This is especially true with the sun transiting through fiery Leo, as it's gifting you with an incredible amount of energy and vitality. However, the sun isn't the only thing peaking right now — your August 2020 monthly sex horoscope is budding with smoldering, fiery passion, and you'll want to use it ASAP.

The supercharged, festive energies of Leo season could seem paradoxical right now given the fact five planets are simultaneously retrograding, which automatically slows things down, but there's always a silver lining, and it's keeping things hot. So if you were worried these retrogrades could have the power to extinguish the fiery chemistry you're feeling right now in your intimate connections, have no fear. Leave it to Mars and Venus to ignite your sexual desires and caramelize your unions — together, these two planets have got you covered.

Each month during a full moon phase, something that needs to be acknowledged or readjusted is brought to your conscious awareness, and this is precisely what you can expect from the upcoming lunation on Aug. 3. In rebellious Aquarius — while in a challenging square to electric Uranus — your relationship with society and whether or not your social connections are aligned with your heart center will become much of your focus.

Knowing what's ahead, combined with the sizzling synergies of Mars and Venus, here's how these celestial vibes could affect your sex life.


Aries: You're Following Your Instincts And Taking The Lead
