There’s some unpredictable energy around at the start of the month. Like most Mercury transits, this is a pretty fleeting thing, and it is going to involve communication, travel, and maybe a bit of mental agility. Expect the unexpected — and if you’re looking for a summer romance, well, you could be talking to the partner of your dreams and not even know it. Things may not always be what they seem!

Keep Your Options Open
Try not to commit yourself to anything important over the first few days of August. There’s a lack of substance here, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Not knowing where you’re going could be the road that takes you where you want to go in the long run. It’s best if you try not to overthink things — something you may well be tempted to do. Also, listen to your daydreams. They could provide you with unexpected insight or a new way of looking at an old situation. The problem here is that you could well get caught up in your woolgathering, and let your other responsibilities and obligations slip. You may also find that it’s harder to communicate your ideas to others, so don’t try too hard — you could end up projecting a distorted image, especially when you consider that other people are going to be going through the same nebulousness!

Additionally, this is a somewhat romantic phase, when it will be easy for you to fantasize, and wonder if you could be talking to the partner of your dreams. However, make sure that you keep your feet rooted in reality. If this potential romance is anchored in delusion, you might end up saying or doing the wrong thing or giving the wrong impression, and that makes it harder to get a relationship off the ground! This is a time when less is more. You could also be greatly impressed by others these next few days, but you have to make sure that you’re seeing what’s really there, and not what you want to see. If you’re looking for love it’s going to be easy to convince yourself that someone is who you want, or that they have the same feelings for you as you do for them, when that may not be the case at all. Your assessment of things isn’t very clear at the moment, so by all means, consider that this may be a budding romance, but bide your time and don’t take any action just yet.
Flex Your Creative Muscle
This isn’t a period where logic is going to come easily to you. Your fantasies and imagination are going to be much stronger than rationality and reason, so go with it. Use these transit for self-expression, for creativity, for vision. If you’re creative at all, then devote some energy to art, writing, or even a manifestation board. Listen to music, relax and unwind. Let your unconscious mind bring new ideas to you, that you can use for inspiration and new ways of looking at things later this month.
Above all, don’t rush into anything new during this influence. Remember, that while you could be talking to the partner of your dreams, things could also turn out to be a nightmare if you don’t cultivate patience. It takes more than a fantasy or a bit of daydreaming to bring a relationship of substance into your life. This is a wonderful aspect for sharing your desires and intents for love with the universe, but then give it time for the answer to come back to you. You’ll be glad you waited in the end.
