Here's August:

Rev up your sex appeal by wearing red or orange. Look people in the eye when you speak to them. Wear green stone earrings or a green stone necklace to facilitate clear communication. Carry rose quartz in your shirt pocket next to heart or trousers’ front pocket. Take chances and be open-minded. Throw away that shopping list of pre-conceived notions. Cover up your bedroom mirror if it faces your headboard. Burn pink and red candles on a Friday night before you go on a date and visualize yourself being happy, sexy and desirable with no expectations. Live in the moment. Don’t project past hurts onto new lovers. Everyone is different. Everyone has a story to tell.

ARIES: 6 of Swords
Aries may have a great time on water this month. See if there’s a singles cruise or ferry ride you can attend. Go to a nude beach. Go on one of the “lifestyle” cruises. A hot tub or Jacuzzi can be a source of sexual delight. You will find the going much easier this month, especially if you change your tune about a few things. Disengage with people you don’t click with and seek out new lovers.

TAURUS: Five of Swords
You keep flogging a dead horse, or dead relationship as it were. Actually it may not be dead yet, but it will be if you don’t stop harping on things. There’s a lot of unsettled energy around you. Turn it around and use it to your advantage. Indulge your senses. Taurus loves romance and romantic things. You can’t demand them so turn on your charms no matter how agitated you may feel. Be more free spirited and try new ideas in the bedroom.

GEMINI: Four of Swords
You need to take some time out for contemplation or maybe a vacation. Lie around on a nude beach. You may want to try tying up your lover or maybe you like to be tied up. Play with ropes and floggers. Get your senses tingling so that you feel alive. You can get out of your rut with your gift of charm and talkativeness. If you’re single, you may meet a new lover at the end of the month.

CANCER: Three of Hearts
You have to stop worrying about what was and what didn’t work in your past relationships. New relationships don’t have to end horribly. There may be disappointments or heartbreak. Realize that sometimes people just aren’t meant for each other and move on. Take a trip so that you can open yourself up to new people. Hiding away won’t get you out in the dating scene. Don’t fall for smooth talkers or they will disappoint you eventually.

LEO: King of Swords
You feel like the king this month. Women: You will meet a man or maybe have a man who is strong, loyal and seems rather cold or hard to approach. However, if you show him your intelligence, you will discover a quick-witted man who loves to make you laugh. Men: You are in control this month. Use floggers and crops in your sexual adventures. Be clear in your communication but try not to come across as cold and abrupt.

VIRGO: Two of Swords
You may be torn between two lovers. You may be putting off a decision that you know you have to make. Go to a beach and relax. If you can’t find a beach, a pool will do. You may find yourself faced with a new romantic adventure such as a threesome. Find out why you’re feeling so hesitant. Don’t question everything, just enjoy the moment. Sometimes a spanking will get those nerve endings quivering enough to feel alive.

LIBRA: Queen of Swords
There are feminine energies dominating you this month. You may feel as though you want to protect yourself from feeling too much. Try not to worry about what other people think and just enjoy yourself. A woman may enter your relationship. You should try using a nice chair or throne for sexual activity. You can tie your partner to the chair or you can be tied to the chair. Use feathers for teasing. Use floggers for sharper sensations.

SCORPIO: Ace of Swords
There is a lot of sexual energy around you this month. However, you sometimes will find yourself getting too intellectual about it all. Just relax and enjoy your sensations. Trust your gut. A new play partner will enter your life, but maybe not until late August or even September. Get out to fetish clubs or alternative lifestyle clubs to meet new people and to play. Buy a new flogger or crop. Use it someone new or hand it to an enticing stranger in a club and ask them to use it on you.

SAGITTARIUS: Knight of Swords
A younger person may come flying into your life, bringing adventure, quick wits and turmoil. You will have the classic fighting to the death and then fantastic make up sex situation with this person. This new person may not stay long since you may find him or her too flighty. The nervous energy of this person might get on your nerves. Use a ball gag to keep nit picking at bay. If you’re single, go horseback riding or join some kind of ranch or camp where you have access to horse back riding.

Oh, sex in the car is so much fun. You can go to a drive in and have oral sex. You can go parking at some romantic spot and screw each other’s brains out. Try the front seat, the back seat. You may want to have the woman lie on the hood of the car while the man stands. For exhibitionists, you may want to have the woman looking out the car window of a parked car while the man brings her pleasure hidden below. For the truly daring, a blowjob or hand job while driving may be mind-blowing but be very careful.

AQUARIUS: Strength
The picture on this card is a woman taming a lion. The woman is dominant in your relationship this month. She’s horny and wants to be on top. Take her lead or if this is you, be aggressive and passionate. Take control of the sexual situation. Try a few new moves this month with woman on top. The man can sit on a couch while the woman sits on top, either facing him or facing away. Even better, the man can be tied to the bed while the woman teases, torments and then fucks his brains out.

PISCES: Wheel of Fortune
Everything is in flux this month. Lovers come and go. You have a lot of choices and decisions. Things are going your way. If you want an orgy, you’ll have it. If you want a threesome, you’ll have it. If you want a new lover, you’ll find him or her. Take chances, get yourself out there and try something new. Go to a sex shop and browse through books on positions. There are positions that even experienced Pisces probably hasn’t tried.
