No price is too high when pampering your partner. With Venus retrograde in showy Leo and your financial sector throughout the month, you’ll go all out to impress someone you’re into. Lavish dates and expensive gifts may play a part in your courtship game. You might also splurge on pre-date preparations like hair and wardrobe. You’ll want to get the most bang for your buck as the sun and Venus merge from August 13-14. These are the best nights of the month for a special date. Some Cancers may be keen to lock down a relationship when assertive Mars syncs with persuasive Pluto from August 23-26. The compelling argument that you present will be tough to resist.
