Whether you believe in astrology or not, we have some information that we think might be of interest to you.
Today is the day than the sun and Venus form their once-a-year conjunction - otherwise known as the cazimi sun - and that means that when it comes to your love life, this day could be the best day of your entire year.
A cazimi sun is when Venus and the sun are in the exact same place in the sky from our viewpoint here on earth, so basically the pair has teamed up in our chart's sector of romance, sex and fun to bring us all (hopefully) a little luck.
Venus represents love, sensuality, romance, beauty and affection, and while the effects of this placement are thought to last until August 15th, its strength peaks today so we highly recommend you call your man (or Tinder date) and arrange a night out right this instant.
"Today's Venus Star Point is a great day for love," says Lisa Stardust, an NYC-based astrologist. "The sun and Venus, who are both in passionate Leo, will both kink up creating a delicious and desirous conjunction in the sky.
"We are starting a new chapter of the story created in the summer of 2015, which will start a new vision of love and money lasting for the next eight years. It's a great day for manifesting and implementing goals.
"Make a wish under the Perseid Meteor Shower and your dreams will come true."
But it doesn't stop there...
She added: "We can expect strong declarations of love or promises to be made within relationships about the future. People may recommit to others or get a proposal of some kind-yes, that includes engagements.
"If we don't get a marriage proposal, don't despair! It's still a great day to enjoy the company of loved ones and to have fun.
"It's a day of Destiny and fated decisions. We are moving toward who and what we love with full force. Love is becoming more tender than ever."
If you've been experiencing a lot of self-doubt recently then there could be a reason behind this too - from the 10th to the 12th August there was a tougher astrological smorgasbord of aspects between Neptune and Pluto too that's believed to trigger insecurities in our relationships but luckily that should be all cleared up by now.
Onwards and upwards!
