Venus square your decan from August 29 to September 7 will increase your need for love and affection but any underlying relationship tension may rise to the surface. This is especially true if you expect too much without first showing you care. Getting motivated for work may prove challenging because you would rather be lazing around enjoying yourself. Avoid overspending and overindulging with food or drink. Partying is fine now so long as you act with moderation.

Mercury retrograde from August 30 to September 22 does not directly affect your decan but is worth noting. Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. You can expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past.
