There are lots of reasons to get excited about summer. The days spent chilling in or near the water, the long, cozy nights full of potential and adventure, and, of course, the opportunity for an exciting summer love. There’s just something about rising temperatures that makes it easy for romance to blossom — and I know I’m not alone in that opinion. But what will this summer hold for you in the relationship department? One way to get a sneak peek is by considering the zodiac signs headed for a serious relationship this summer, so you know if you should be on the lookout for “the one” this season, or if 2019 is going to be all about the seasonal fling.
As it turns out, the answers to what your summer love will shape up to be — and whether or not means being in a relationship — can boil down to the influence of Saturn being in retrograde this summer. This is because Saturn has a stabilizing influence when it comes to matters of the heart, explains Astroreveal. Its effects are also felt over the long term, so, as a result, relationships formed under its influence have a tendency to stick. Here are the the signs that will feel this planet’s influence most this summer when it comes to romance.
Leo (July 23 To Aug. 22)
This summer is going to be an especially hot one for Leo, which is saying a lot, since this Sun-ruled planet already knows how to heat things up during this season. “Your sector of romance and creativity can use some free and easy, light and fun energy after an (almost) three-year Saturn transit,” writes Cafe Astrology. “This 13-month transit occurs only once every 12 years or so, and it’s excellent for bringing more fun, entertainment, and romance into your life.” So, while attracting attention and love is never really a problem for this sign, this summer, Leo will find the idea of focusing on just one person wonderfully appealing all summer long — and beyond.
Virgo (Aug. 23 To Sept. 22)
One of Virgo’s greatest stumbling blocks when it comes to finding love and relationships is their critical nature. They just can’t seem to get out of their own way sometimes, but this summer, the arrival of Saturn in retrograde should make letting the little things go easier. “Earth signs continue to receive some extra support this year with Saturn moving in harmony with your sign and Uranus transitioning towards that position as well, active from March 2019 forward. Generally speaking, this means you have increasingly less pressure on you in 2018 and 2019 than you’ve had for some time,” explains Cafe Astrology. “Saturn here does bring a serious energy to your romantic life, for certain, but also a stable one.”
Libra (Sept. 23 To Oct. 22)
If your love life has seemed especially chaotic recently, blame it on Uranus and the chaotic and rebellious influence it brought all winter, says Cafe Astrology. But there’s good news: As the weather changes, so too will your love life. Beginning in March, Uranus exited your partnership sector, and so its effect will begin to wane. This increase in emotional and spiritual balance will help Libra feel secure and open to exploring relationships and intimacy all summer long.
Pisces (Feb. 19 To March 20)
Every summer, Pisces hopes this will be the one where they meet-cute their forever love. Well, good news, because if the planets get their way, 2019 is the year. “With Saturn now on your side, the year is likely to be empowering, stable, and grounding as it was last year, but it’s a little more stimulating now since Uranus is now a supportive influence as well,” explains Cafe Astrology. So, be on the lookout for love late this summer in August and September.
Whether a true romance or just a seasonal fling is in your future this summer, one thing is certain: This is going to be a hot one. So, just relax, open your heart, and enjoy the ride.
