Are you ready to let go of toxic relationships and say hello to new, exciting connections and grand romantic gestures? Then the stars are here to bring some fresh, dynamic energy into your social world this week!
This week, astrology is shaking things up with two powerhouse transits, both occurring on August 11th and both ready to bring transformation to your social life and your relationships!
Let’s begin with the Full Moon in Aquarius—a lunar transit known for its association with letting go and releasing that which no longer serves you.
The Full Moon also shines a spotlight on hidden information or buried emotions, helping you see certain situations or relationships more clearly, and you may feel some big emotions regarding those revelations. In social, revolutionary Aquarius, this can indicate a shift in your relationships or letting go of certain connections entirely.
But don’t fear because Venus—the planet of love and relationships—is moving into friendly, larger-than-life Leo on the same day, marking a period of exciting new connections and encounters. Venus in Leo urges you to be your brightest, most confident self and share your light with the world.
This is an excellent time to meet new people, make new friends, and even explore new romantic avenues. Venus in Leo is all about grand, romantic gestures, but keep in mind that Leo’s flair for drama can bring a bit of melodrama into relationships!

While the Full Moon in Aquarius may bring heavy moods and changes that seem scary at first, trust your heightened instincts and allow yourself to release anything that is holding you back from your spiritual growth.
Plus, Venus in Leo brings enough social energy and pizazz to get you right back on track, refreshed, ready to socialize, and full of confidence.
Do you feel frightened at the thought of letting go of that which no longer serves you? Acknowledge that fear but remember to trust the Universe and, more importantly, your intuition.
