(May 20–June 21)
Doldrums in the rear-view mirror starting August 17, when Mars in Mercury-ruled Virgo stimulates analysis and initiates action around moribund domestic situations. Relationships take a turn for the practical August 21-22, while the Last Quarter Moon in Gemini on August 23 helps resolve communication issues in a clear and honorable way. Communication issues improves exponentially after the 29th. Trust but verify big offers after August 11; partnerships and associations around common goals have ambitious aims, but can the promiser deliver? "Get it in writing" is your motto in all joint ventures this month, along with "be immaculate with your word."
