Hello Sweethearts, I’m really pleased to bring you another month’s prediction for Leo Guy particularly because it is going to be quite an important month with Venus retrograde in Leo and the new moon in Leo.
Venus retrograde in Leo is quite stimulating in terms of relationship depth, bonding and finding true passion through shared values.
This guide is aimed at people who are either married to or dating Leo Guy to help you understand his moves, his moods, his motivations and the themes that will be affecting your relationship this month, August 2023.
This month Mercury is slowing down and going retrograde in Virgo, which indicates a need for pause and carefully planning financial matters. In relationships, it’s important to look for facts and to be grounded and logical about problems and decisions.
Venus Retrograde in Leo – all of August
This affects his image, his independence and the way he projects to others. The fact that Venus is retrograde is not necessarily a good sign for dating, this can indicate a lack of confidence or that he will put his foot in it by making his move in a romantically clumsy way.
If you are dating or in a relationship with Leo Guy, you may find it more difficult to reach agreement or understanding as he’s a little bit awkward in intimate conversation. During this period there are more likely to be misunderstandings, you could misread each other’s body language and timing tends to be a little bit off when it comes to sex because he is feeling self-conscious.
While this is a month when you guys can develop a lot more relationship-awareness, during the month you aren’t yet hitting the right notes, or understanding what’s going on, and that’s why you can both be a little bit touchy and almost sheepish.
Sometimes he’s inclined to be a bit judgmental about other people, so he could underestimate a potential relationship, even dismissing someone on first meeting them because his instincts are saying that the person is not for him.
However those instincts often tend to be wrong, so even if you get off on the wrong foot with him, it’s highly likely that he actually quite fancies you, but because of his romantic radar being off, he is initially reticent. In fact, the people he clashes with during this month are probably people he is actually secretly sexually attracted to.
New Moon in Leo – 16th August
In relationships he may act a little selfishly, at times he can also be a little bit self-indulgent where he focuses on how any situation is affecting him, rather than the impact on you as a couple. He tends to be quite individualistic which also impedes joint decision-making.
He is also likely to be very indecisive right now, he has a narrow sense of what’s important and he can quickly change his opinion on matters. Sometimes in love, he comes across as more distant, he don’t really realize how his attitude can affect the status quote of your love life by putting you on the back foot.
Mercury retrograde in Virgo – 24th August
This retrograde shines a light on the sphere of communication, thought processes, and matters related to personal resources and values. Mercury retrograde in his solar second house suggests that he may need to rethink his finances, renew budgets, or number crunch.
This can bring a period of introspection and reflection for Leo Guy, as he reevaluates recent decisions and looks at whether these reflect his true values and needs. It’s a period of self-doubt and he often questions his abilities, so he needs a little reassurance. He’s more likely to show ambivalence about matters where he was previously certain.
This retrograde may prompt him to become more introspective and thoughtful in the way he communicates, partially because he’s looking to avoid confrontation and any semblance of criticism.
Encourage him to take a step back and reconsider recent events and how they may impact him, especially financially.
It’s time to align his actions with his true desires, cultivate financial stability, and experience a greater sense of self-empowerment and abundance in his life.
Mars opposite Neptune – 24th August
Right now, a lot of patience is required your relationship with Leo Guy, and your commitment to each other is tested. You may not be totally content with how things are in your relationship, but it’s important to reflect on your relationship as a journey where there’ve been good times and bad times, and so whatever you going through right now, this too shall pass, and it’s important to acknowledge that.
Theme of the month: With Venus being retrograde in Leo for the whole of this month, this is an important time for Leo guy and yourself to examine love priorities and values. It’s easy for couples to focus on disagreements in terms of the superficial value of those disagreements, but often underlying these is a lack of understanding of where each other is currently at in terms of their top priorities and needs.

Week 1 – Driving Ambition
With Mars in Virgo trine Jupiter in his tenth house this month he possesses a potent combination of energies that influences his ambition, drive, and professional pursuits. This planetary aspect suggests that he has the potential to achieve significant success and recognition in his chosen career, so it’s a positive time for his ambitions.
There’s a harmonious flow of energy between these Mars and Jupiter, enhancing his abilities to manifest his ambitions and make progress in his professional life.
This transit have a number of long-term ramifications. This is an excellent time for you and Leo guy to brainstorm ideas and action plans that will help you in the next few years of your life to get where you want to be.
It’s also very important right now to be socially, politically and economically aware because there are an awful lot of changes going on, and these require an open-minded and quite an adventurous, yet intrepid approach.
The energies suggests that the Leo Guy may experience fortunate circumstances and beneficial connections in his professional life. He may encounter mentors, supportive colleagues, or opportunities that propel him forward on his path to success. Hs success is good for your relationship as it helps ground him and feeds his self esteem.
Week 2 – Smashing it
This is a week where he is particularly stubborn and pig headed if there’s anything he hates it’s being told what to do. He can be quite demanding and he wants his own way, he tends to have very poor impulse control and he doesn’t take advice, so sometimes if he’s making a mistake you just have to let him make it and he must learn the hard way.
He may be more independent, wanting his own space and he could actually be quite selfish this week. Remember that at the moment it’s important to let him express himself, try not to be a Debbie Downer and throw cold water on his ideas, at the same time remember not to get sucked into this vortex of craziness.
During this season he is rather impulsive and a little bit reckless, he can make unwise choices with money so discourage him from making any big investment plans.
As I say he’s a little bit selfish – so maybe not the best week for tender romance, but a good week for sex.
Week 3 – Burning the candle
During this week, he’s again rather restless and he’s looking to make changes. To the extent that he has dissatisfied in his work, he can be quite irritable and frustrated, however even if things are going really well in his work and opportunities are opening up, he man take on too much.
This is a time when he has to learn to pace himself, he’s inclined to bite off a little bit more than he can chew and he can end up creating a lot of stress for himself and for others.
This is a time when you really need some space from him as he’s emitting quite a tense and electric energy and while this could be quite exciting, it can also be very draining. So it’s important for you to get enough sleep yourself and to encourage him to get rest right now, otherwise it can be all too much as he burns the candle at both end.
Week 4 – Thinking Cap
With Mars going into Libra, he is extremely talkative and eager to debate, however, sometimes he can be a little bit argumentative and arrogant so it’s probably not a good time to debate with him. Encourage him to use his mental energy to communicate more with clients, to increase his engagement with colleagues and to do hobbies that provide an outlet for his intense mental energy.
This is a great time for him to be putting in a few extra hours at work because the dividends can really pay off. This is also a good time for him to get to grips with any IT projects specifically, especially if they could create more efficiency at its work
This week it’s important for both you guys to be very cautious with money, you need to stick to budgets and if you are planning on buying anything make sure you really do your research and you read the fine print. If you make any big purchases ensure you have adequate warranties or guarantees.
This is also not a good time to lend money to people, to borrow extra funds or to embark on any joint ventures.
So this is an excellent time for Leo Guy to develop a better attitude, a fresh approach to life or to improve his relationships.
Events in your relationship and your personal life may incline you to look for deeper meaning and to find your personal truth.
Thus even the struggles right now can be a way of awakening to you to your deepest authenticity and helping you to understand what the key to happiness is, apart from what could make you superficially or ephemerally happy.
Wishing you love and luck with your Leo Man,
Your sister and relationship astrologer,
