August relaxes tension and restores the zip in close relationships. It's time for excitement, making changes, and discovering new places to go. Gazes can connect in an instant if looking for romance.

You'll end up winning by appearance and get an idea of who plays fair, who has the power, and who just had the wind taken out of their sails in the 30 days following the phase.
