July 31, 2019 not only marks the end of Mercury retrograde, it's also the date of the second new moon in 30 days. According to astrologer Jamie Partridge of Astrology King, the planetary aspects of this new moon could shake things up. "This brings stress, anxiety and the potential for unexpected changes to your love life and finances," Partridge said. But how the July 31, 2019 new moon will affect your love life based on your zodiac sign largely depends on your ability to exercise patience versus acting on every impulse.

The second new moon in a single month is sometimes referred to as a black moon, and it only occurs every two years. While it's a relief that Mercury is finally going direct, the black moon will make it feel otherwise for some signs. "The July 31 new moon at 08°36′ Leo Sign is close to Venus," Partridge explained. "On its own, this is a very positive influence, especially for love and money. But the red square aspect to Uranus makes this a challenging influence."

A lot of things in life seem to come down to love or money. And no matter what your sign, you'll see changes in both of these areas of your life. However, just how the July 31 new moon will affect your love life based on your zodiac sign depends on several factors.
