Summertime and the living is easy...especially when it comes to your love and sex life. Let's just say, the stars are aligned for you to have the summer fling of your dreams this month!

Venus, the planet of love, will spend the first half of this month in Gemini—which will serve up some flirty, fun energy along with the warmer weather, says Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology based in Atlanta.

Then on the 17th, Venus moves into Cancer, the emotional water sign we all know and love, to give everybody a more grounded connection with those around them. You might sense a pull to have long, thoughtful conversations with the one you love, allowing that to deepen your intimacy more and more. By the time the new moon in Leo hits on the 28th, the collective will be feeling sexy, confident, and ready to make new connections. You might initiate something in your dating or single life that's bolder than your usual moves. Maybe you'll ask someone out or initiate a new move or position in bed.

Whatever ends up happening, this is a potent energy that will no doubt heat up your love life in ways you never thought possible. What does this all mean for your sign this summer? Well, ahead, Page breaks it all down for you.
