August 2018: You’re ready to move ahead with new romantic adventures during the Mars retrograde-Uranus square on August 1, but because innovation (in this area, especially) doesn’t always come naturally, you might move ahead with some trepidation. It takes courage to be a love pioneer, and this aspect gives you the boost you need.

A sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on the eighth makes you feel like you’re a great communicator, so it’s that much more disappointing when your epic attempts end in failure. It’s important to remember that it’s probably nothing you did. When there are forces working against you, you struggle to come out on top no matter how much effort you put into it.

The bright spot of your love life is when the sun enters your sign on August 23, so you feel comfortable and at ease with yourself for the next month. You do tend to criticize your partner or dates, but if you make your advice constructive in nature, it might not do as much damage.

A Venus-Pluto retrograde square on the twenty-sixth raises some jealous or possessive feelings, and working through them is no easy task. There are always complications involving unrequited love, but the stakes feel higher this time for some reason.
