You might feel as if you're looking through a window at events unfolding in your world this month but powerless to connect with or influence them. As dramatic as some will be, you have a superb cushion with Venus influencing partnerships and commitments until September 9th. However, if complacency has set in with a love or business commitment, then what transpires around the 9th could be a wake-up call or reality check. The theme of love continues with a Solar Eclipse on the 11th that highlights an issue connected with someone close and the past that could be dramatic - or intensely passionate! Once your ruling planet, Mars, awakens from its slumber on the 27th, any feelings of restriction that you've felt since the end of June finally start to wane.
