August 12th on your August 2017 Love Horoscope calendar is the day Mercury begins its retrograde phase in your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. During this three-week period, you may come into contact with someone from the past; someone you’ve never forgotten. Mercury calls for clarity, so it’s okay to remember the good times as well as the bad. This is an opportunity for you both to move beyond the fog and perhaps reform a truer connection. Single or attached, if you’ve been pulling away from a relationship, look to the Venus-Uranus square of the 24th to be clear and concise if they’re not getting the picture. This will apply to both romantic relationships and friendships. If all is well in this department, then it will remain so, but if not you’ll finally find the words and the nerve to spell it out clearly.
