As good as it gets

On Aug. 17 Venus, the planet of love and beauty, will form a spectacular conjunction to Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and higher purpose, in the romantic sign of Leo. Simply put? It doesn't get better than this. In fact, this may be the best day of the year for love. The energy is so romantic and affectionate that even the most aloof and distant of boyfriends will be nuzzling your cheek and tickling your nose with his eyelashes. Leo energy has a tendency to turn just about everyone you know into a pussycat. This is also the perfect time to mend rifts and to rebuild friendships. People just aren't in the mood to fight and to be difficult. They want to make love, not war.

As good as it gets

Your ruling planet Venus is good-humored and easygoing when she's in Leo (Aug.12 – Sept. 5). It's an excellent time to have those conversations that you've been avoiding. You won't be talking at the same time as your husband or trying to outshout him. The kids won't be so contrary, the in-laws will be eerily cooperative, and even your pets will show a new-found respect and appreciation. Life will be on the mend for the next 3-1/2 weeks. It won't quite be like the lion lying down next to the lamb, but it will be the next best thing.
