Take a moment to ponder the Perseid meteor showers as they paint the midnight sky this weekend, let these meteors entering our atmosphere symbolize the arrival of new material, new ideas, new problems or possibilities, from beyond the normal circle of our lives.
This is an ideal week to take a lazy family holiday with time to drift down a stream and paint landscapes, time to straighten out any misunderstandings. Wouldn’t that be nice. Not all of us are that lucky, so for everything else we need to practice patience and flexibility while a grant trine in fire signs pushes for action, any action, yet Mercury turns retrograde opposed Neptune, confuses the criteria, and slows us down.
We can expect political grandstanding as the week-ends in a rush as the impatient Aries Moon conjuncts urgent Uranus, and they form a loose grand trine with the Sun and Mars in Leo, and our own sense of deadlines light a fire under us. Notice an urgency to take action, but investigate the motivation: is it a relief to finally get going, or are we rushing into something ill prepared through a false sense of urgency. Or, are we using this apparent urgency to hide from more complicated problems we’d rather not deal with.
The road will be full of twists and turns as thoughtful Mercury in Virgo approaches an opposition to Neptune and then retrogradeson Saturday, and through Sept 6. Mercury retrograde in Virgo can bring out our critical side, but it can also help us review where we were before the summer began and pick up old projects we’ve left behind. It may be time to go back and find missing pieces to bring old ideas or ambitions forward, though it’s hard to build momentum or get funding at the moment. It’s also a time to talk over what didn’t work last time but only in the terms of what can we do differently this time. For now, let’s do the work, dust off the old info, reorganize the grant proposal and get ready.
We can feel an urgency to get things done as the Sun and Mars form a grand trine with Uranus and Saturn in motivating fire signs this weekend, but find the road full of twists and turns as thoughtful Mercury now in Virgo, approaches an opposition to Neptune and then retrogrades Saturday through Sept 6. Now that Mercury retrograde in Virgo can bring out our critical side and slow us down in launching into this year’s projects, but it can also help us review where we were before the summer began, and pick up old projects we’ve left behind. Or just tell old stories, and see them in a new light.
We can also become absent-minded professors, thinking brilliant abstract thoughts while we forget what we were saying or doing, and become as easily distracted as a dog with a squirrel.
Odd technical and literary snafus can multiply like gremlin for the next few weeks. Untruths or misunderstandings from the past may get exposed, investigators will dig up information. The momentum of our life can shift sideways, asking us to tend to a short-term agenda requiring our attention now, which lets us return to business as usual after the first week in September.
But this Mercury retrograde in Virgo, opposed Neptune, can also bring up old worries and anxieties. Many people who lived through the cold war are feeling recent nuclear threats as all too familiar. The upcoming eclipses tap-dance on Trump’s chart, the urgency to do something major, or at least threated so, under this motivating fire-sign grand trine, while this Mercury, can make it hard to get the facts and see where we’re going. Our intuition may be strong, but our logical judgment off-center, so let’s think long and hard about saying something unforgivable, or making any radical move, like starting a war.
Along with this stop-start confusion, our emotions can overflow in all directions as a tender Venus in Cancer runs the gamut of both positive and challenging aspects through the week. Over the weekend we could feel more vulnerable in the best and worst of ways as our sensitivity and imagination are juiced by a trine from Venus to intuitive Neptune. We may slow down and rest Saturday night and Sunday and feel the need to feed the senses and eat delicious food under an earthy Taurus Moon. Bathe in the awe of the meteor showers. If our great ideas don’t pan out this weekend, we can rely on surprising practicality and traditional formats to do what needs to be done.
Early in the week Venus opposes Pluto, and something may just not feel right, or we may need to show our love even under a depressed mood or difficulties. There could be a conflict of will or realization that good intentions need some work before they can manifest as Mars quincunx Pluto on Wednesday. Let’s not make it a battle of wills. Pay attention to the ongoing debate on how political power is being manipulated at home and abroad.
To work through this gently on the home front, we can lower our demands and just gently be there for each other. It may be important to set some boundaries, but if so, do it in a way that doesn’t make others wrong, but guides the interaction into a more comfortable form. We finish the week with more liberating, fun, abundant emotions as Venus squares bountiful Jupiter. Just watch a sudden desire to spend money on things that make our home and ourselves feel beautiful.
Friday, August 11: Look for magical communications today as Venus trines Neptune, though more simple forms can be problematic. It helps to look for the best in people; an idealistic view can help them rise to the occasion, but just be honest about where they are at the moment. There’s a spark in the air and a spark in the heart on this flirtatious, combustible evening.
Uranus semi-square Neptune 3:48 AM, Venus trine Neptune 11:17 PM, Moon square Venus 11:36 PM.
Saturday, August 12: Hurry up and get distracted this morning. We may be excited about a new possibility or just feel warmhearted, easily engaged in what we’re doing, but also easily site-tracked by our imagination. The Moon in Aries increases our impatience and presses us to hurry up and get something done, all while Mercury retrogrades. We can run around in circles passionately. Prioritize carefully, as patience and focus can unlock the energy.
Moon trine Mars 1:38 AM, Moon square Pluto 6:27 AM, Moon opposed Jupiter 8:48 AM, Moon trine Sun 11:26 AM, Moon trine Saturn 1:25 PM, Mercury retrograde 7:01 PM.
Sunday, August 13: It’s a great day for meandering, for taking unexpected side trips and interesting explorations, though it can be really tricky to get from point A to point B without interruption. Tonight, it furthers to create stability with healthy food, familiar jokes, familiar people. Check in on old friends and reconnect. Do what stabilizes the soul.
Moon conjunct Uranus 2:00 AM, Moon enters Taurus 4:39 AM, Sun trine Saturn 3:06 PM.
Monday, August 14: Familiar routines further, simple sybaritic pleasures soothes, so let’s take a chance to catch up with one another and with oneself. It won’t help to try and hurry. If we feel a dose of stubbornness coming up, we might want to back off the conflict and try again later as the Moon squares the Sun and Mars in recalcitrant fixed signs. If an emotional heaviness sits on the heart, don’t look too hard for the many sources, but do turn it into compassionate comfort and practical action.
Moon trine Mercury 12:41 AM, Moon sextile Neptune 3:53 AM, Moon square Mars 8:29 AM, Moon sextiles Venus 8:48 AM, Moon trine Pluto 10:33 PM, Moon square Sun 7:14 PM.
Tuesday, August 15: Watch the emotional manipulations or mood swings this morning; be as clean and clear with one another as possible. We can feel sad or concerned, aware of what is missing, or feel like life is passing us by as Venus opposes Pluto. Process away, talk about the feelings, not who is right or wrong. Honor the feelings, but don’t get caught up in the story. Conversation picks up this afternoon as the Moon enters Gemini and inspires cross pollination and new opportunities to reconnect with people we know to help deal with some intransigent difficulties.
Venus opposed Pluto 5:17 AM, Moon enters Gemini 8:05 AM.
Wednesday, August 16: It’s hard to get exactly what we want, but it’s sure tempting to try as Mars irritates Pluto this morning. Give people time to work at their own speed and direction. Most of us will feel this as a minor irritation which we can use to provoke good work, but let’s also watch out for some willful flailing about or those that duck responsibility by projecting blame. Later in the day people will find it easier to communicate and cooperate as the Moon sextiles Mars and trines Jupiter.
Moon square Mercury 2:48 AM, Mars quincunx Pluto 4:36 AM, Moon square Neptune 6:34 AM, Moon sextile Mars 1:29 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 4:34 PM, Moon opposed Saturn 7:40 PM.
Thursday, August 17: Expect to puddle about in free-floating emotions, choose carefully where to aim the heart’s attention as Venus squares abundant Jupiter while the Moon enters sensitive, self-protective Cancer. We need to notice which feelings are our own and which are coming from our empathic connections. Don’t attach to the stories, as they may be off or not-relevant, but do honor the feelings and let them flow like a river. Instead of becoming crabby, it furthers to not get emotionally overextended, but instead take time for nesting and self-care, and then share with Venusian romantic and artistic abundance from our renewed place.
Venus square Jupiter 12:39 AM, Moon sextile Sun 1:13 AM, Moon sextile Uranus 7:38 AM, Moon enters cancer 10:12 PM.

The general tone of our daily interactions can be perfectly affable and gregarious this week, making our day-to-day interactions pleasant, but we’ll notice more profound and challenging undertones lurking beneath as Jupiter squares Pluto and stirs the pot of all ongoing power plays. The Sun is flaring, we are expecting a moderate geomagnetic storm this weekend, and when the Sun flares this way it excites all the ongoing astrological aspects, and cranks up the volume on history. We individuals often report feeling tired, wired, or less insulated while the Sun is active.
We can get tense when we try to push the river and make things happen; external events and willful people can block what would be progress to one person but a disaster to another. It could be tempting to push for great changes right now, but hard to find the patience and timing to get things right. We could see how some extravagance or overabundance in one place can be deadly in another. Or we may find that we’re sidetracked but bonded together by some enormously difficult event, like a wildfire or loss of a friend’s pet as Jupiter squares Pluto this weekend, followed by a lunar eclipse on Tuesday.
Under this Jupiter-Pluto square we need to examine our own use of power. Are we really taking our power on? Are we using it well, for the benefit of all sentient beings? Are we ignoring our chance to empower ourselves, empower others, and make the world better place? Are we looking squarely and truly threatening problems, like climate change or political train wrecks?
Watch this Jupiter-Pluto square impact national American politics. Approximately every 13 years Jupiter and Pluto conjunct and begin a new cycle around how we use personal, political, and electrical power. Every time these two planets form a challenging aspect with one another, we work this cycle. Jupiter, the most expansive planet, and Pluto, the planetoid that’s been through its own cycles of death, rebirth, and identity change, conjunct in December 2007, right before Obama was elected president. Jupiter squared Pluto in 2010, opposed Pluto 2013-14, and now forms a square that started last November–right after the election- perfected again last March, and completes with another exact square between Jupiter and Pluto this week. Right before a series of eclipses dance on this president’s chart.
Coming back to our more personal lives, Venus and Mars are giving us very different instructions these days. Venus in Cancer encourages our introversion, intimacy, and coziness this week, and keeps our heart sensitive but somewhat guarded, while Mars in Leo adds bravery and pumps up our extroverted need to jump into the crowd or create a scene. Let’s time share between the two extremes.
If we can, it will be helpful to make plans about the future before Mercury retrogrades on August 12, then take the next month off to relax and participate in the entertaining circus of events. Store up good memories and good will for the future now, as long-term goals may be easier to pursue and take our focus after the middle of September, and really kick into gear after the new year.
On Friday and Saturday, a determined, competent Capricorn Moon-Pluto conjunction brings our attention to strange power dynamics and keeps us humble in the face of natural forces. We can borrow that determination to plow through our chores and engage competitive events. Over the weekend a challenging Sun-Neptune aspect can soften that edge, leave us determined, but not quite sure exactly in which direction. On Sunday and early in the week and a waxing Aquarius Moon encourages us to gather. Midweek a sensitive, drifting Pisces Moon feeds our imagination and encourages both a lazy streak and a compassionate heart.
Friday, August 4: We may have a new perception of the severity of a problem. It furthers to have good goals, this is not a day will be comfortable sitting around doing nothing. We can be willful and push people, or resist other people’s pushing around if we don’t have a good place to exert our willpower. But with direction, we get things done. Tackle serious tasks. IF beloveds seem grim, don’t take it personally.
Moon opposed Venus 3:22 AM, Moon trine Mercury 12:22 PM, Jupiter square Pluto 12:48 PM, Moon sextile Neptune 9:57 PM.
Saturday, August 5: As the Moon opposes Pluto and squares Jupiter on this moody morning, we can wake up with an aching heart or sense of existential discontent. Let’s not take out on others, but turn it into action that improves our experience and our world. Later on, a confusing mental mist can help us drift, dream and rest, but it may leave us foggy about where we’re going and what needs to happen next as the Sun quincunx Neptune.
Moon conjunct Pluto 5:37 AM, Moon square Jupiter 5:51 AM, Sun quincunx Neptune 3:31 PM.
Sunday, August 6: Lean into the extroverted side today, get out there and greet the crowds as the Moon waxes in Aquarius. Public opinion waves like we in the wind discontent at home unless we can feel the tribe gathering, to neighborhood or Internet. Our beloveds may be more aware of family opinion than our own, as we are farsighted but can miss things close to home.
Moon square Uranus 3:21 AM, Moon enters Aquarius 6:15 AM,
Monday, August 7: A lunar eclipse at 12:10 PM MDT can be just a pretty sight, or it can trigger changes in our life based on tension between the needs of the individual and the needs of the collective. Overripe events precipitate, things happen which should have happened a while ago. Seek a win-win solution and keep hearts open and enjoy the show where possible. The Moon trines Jupiter and sextiles Saturn in the evening, stabilizing our feelings and helping us find the humor and productive next step if we just look for it.
Moon opposes Mars 4:41 AM, full moon, lunar eclipse 12:10 PM, Moon trine Jupiter 5:05 PM, Moon sextile Saturn 11:39 PM.
Tuesday, August 8: Social responsibilities and personal obligations need attention this morning, and then let people be. The Moon enters Pisces midafternoon and our tears come closer to the surface. We may feel vulnerable, delicate, and feel we have to exaggerate events in order to describe the depth of our emotional response. Or we can just comfortably puddle about.
Moon sextile Uranus 1:07 PM, Moon enters Pisces 3:55 PM.
Wednesday, August 9: Honor the sweet sensitivity in the air, show extra kindness to beloveds, give them room to express themselves and not have to rationalize their feelings as that Pisces Moon conjuncts Neptune and the Sun quincunx Pluto. Respond to a true call for compassion but work around those who play the victim in order to justify their recent selfishness.
Moon trine Venus 11:44 AM, Moon opposed Mercury 12:50 PM, Sun quincunx Pluto 2:10 PM, Moon semi-square Uranus 5:09 PM, Moon conjunct Neptune 5:13 PM.
Thursday, August 10: An impressionable day, we may feel the bumps and pebbles of life out of proportion, but can use this sensitivity for creativity and connection, or just to revel in beauty and gratitude as the Sun sextiles Jupiter. We can find just the right words to express how we feel, as long as we think someone is listening, while Mercury sextiles Venus. Fortuitous decisions can be made. Take an opportunity to release a grudge as mars quincunx Neptune. But at the same time, be prepared to release control over a minor ambition and be willing co-create instead. Watch for water or liquid related accidents. Energy and impatience pick up latertonight as the Moon enters Aries.
Moon sextile Pluto 12:21 AM, Mercury sextile Venus 3:02 AM, Mars quincunx Neptune 7:30 AM, Moon square Saturn 7:37 AM, Sun sextile Jupiter 3:24 PM, Moon enters Aries 11:21 PM.

The gift of Leo is to know “I am the center of the universe, and so are you “. The shadow of Leo tells us “I am the center of the universe, and you are not” With the Sun and Mars now conjunct in Leo it helps to look at the lion for advice. the lion encourages us to bask lazily in the sunshine and generously share tidbits with our family and beloveds. But when we get excited, that lionlike energy encourages us to think fast and launch into action with verve and panache. Creative events can shine with unusual leonine electricity, but this same dramatic grandeur can fuel a forest fire or power international incident, and leave us scorched.
The weekend begins under an amiable Libra Moon conjunct Jupiter, we can use the open heartedness of this conjunction to help us connect and organize, or just have fun at a county fair. The Libra Moon encourages friendliness, but can also leave most of us conflict-avoidant, just while that sun-Mars conjunction feeds those of a naturally bombastic nature. Deal with that attitude directly rather than let them create a manipulative scene with emotional or political blackmail.
The Moon enters contrary Scorpio Saturday night through Monday and we may get twitchy unless we get time alone or to concentrate on our own projects. We may need to reach into our most eccentric social graces to get through a tricky interpersonal patch set off by a clash of needs or as some old issue dances on our scars as Venus sex tiles Uranus and squares Chiron.
Our feelings may deepen, and grow more self-protective after Venus enters Cancer on Monday. Tuesday throughThursday that Sagittarius Moon may leave us impatient with paperwork or routine, and encourages us to get outside and revel in the summer’s wild. Things heat up, and we may have to deal with fire hazards or watch some interplay catch fire when people speak their undiplomatic truth. But in most of our relationships, we can appeal to an honest easy camaraderie that helps us work together.
At some point this week, a long-term change we’ve been working towards, may be put on hold or slow down to be reviewed and refined as Uranus retrogrades, but do not give up hope. This is a blip; get back in there and do the work to make the plan more robust and refined, and press forward again early in 2018. Also, if electrical turbulence or unexpected events erupts, it will need a healthy and spontaneous response.
Friday, July 28: A bountiful moon-Jupiter conjunction can put us in an optimistic or generous mood this morning, or add overflowing abundance to any emotion. But the edges sharpen closer to dinner time, we can feel sensitive, and a bitter-sweetness, as the Moon squares Pluto; our minds can perseverate around a recent loss, or try to second-guess a recent decision. Work around minor disappointments, then look up to find that moon-Jupiter conjunction in the night sky and let it pour into the heart and restore gratitude.
Moon conjunct Jupiter 4:34 PM, Moon square Pluto 6:37 PM.
Saturday, July 29: The forecast is friendly and restless as the Moon opposes Uranus. It furthers to break routine and go exploring. If we have trouble deciding, it helps to take a step outside the box and explore fresh alternatives. The mood grows darker, cranky, willful, musky, and real as the Moon enters Scorpio tonight.
Moon sextile Saturn 2:26 AM, Moon trine Venus 2:24 PM, Moon opposed Uranus 3:29 PM, Moon enters Scorpio 6:22 PM.
Sunday, July 30: Feelings churn deeply underneath a pleasant surface. We can channel an otherwise uncomfortable focus into meditation or projects, or have the guts to process deep and difficult stuff to deal with impatient squalls of emotions. Stubborn pride can interfere with movement, but our heart is ready to shift as Venus squares Chiron and sextiles Uranus.
Venus square Chiron 1:45 AM, Venus sextile Uranus 2:03 AM, Moon sextile Mercury 3:20 AM, Moon square Mars 7:02 AM, Moon semi-square Saturn 7:31 AM, Moon square Venus 9:23 AM, Moon trine Neptune 9:29 PM.
Monday, July 31: Get organized and plan the week, catch up on old unfinished business now, as communication gets fuzzy in the weeks ahead. Put out fires, deal with emergencies or unexpected friction or change. But keep emotional demands on others light: we can sting if we feel pressed by unnecessary demands.
Moon sextile Pluto 5:10 AM, Venus enters cancer 8:53 AM.
Tuesday, August 1: Feel that desire to change scenes, travel, connect with people far away or in the wilds as the Moon enters spontaneous Sagittarius. We can be unconsciously calloused about another’s feelings in the name of honesty, but don’t take it personally. Speak up about what bothers, put in two cents on the world stage.
Moon trine Chiron 2:54 AM, Moon enters Sagittarius 6:01 AM, Moon square Mercury 7:59 PM, Moon trine Mars 10:29 PM.
Wednesday, August 2: Move the body, the mind of the furniture. Shift opinions. The energy can be can edge on the chaotic, as swirls ends and swirls and stops and starts, some changes be were counting on may need to be may need refinement before they proceed. Think surfing or redrafting, be as flexible and adaptable as possible while still holding on to short-term and long-term goals. Tonight, calls us to dynamic sanity, alive maturity as Uranus retrogrades and that Sagittarius Moon conjuncts Saturn after midnight.
Moon trine Sun 2:44 AM, Moon square Neptune 9:43 AM, Moon sextile Jupiter 4:54 PM, Uranus retrograde 10:30 PM.
Thursday, August 3: Implement ideas and changes, Long-terms plans may be put on hold or otherwise deferred, but short -term changes need to be implemented now. Let’s follow through on what we’ve been thinking about or longing to do, but put off: life is too short. Evening, as the Moon enters Capricorn, we can take ourselves too seriously, but have access to competence if we choose to kick it into gear.
Moon conjunct Saturn 1:36 AM, Moon trine Uranus 3:38 PM, Moon enters Capricorn 6:36 PM.

Friday starts off with a squishy mood under a sensitive Pisces Moon, but then kicks into a more exploratory, interesting if reactive, weekend as the Moon enters self-starting Aries on Friday evening. We need to rest up, drink water and not overheat as Mercury forms a challenging aspect to Neptune, leaving us fuzzy minded or easily sidetracked Friday morning.
Throughout the next few weeks let’s try to be extra kind to one another. The Sun is close enough to Mars leave everybody a bit bristly around the edges, crab claws come out easily if our tender undersides feel poked her, or our values with which we identify feel challenged. But this line-up also loans us bravery, gumption, and the energy to do what needs to be done (even if we feel tired) as well as the impulse to take unnecessary risks. It raises the testosterone vibe, for better or worse. This week both Sun and Mars are, paradoxically, active- but in inward-seeking Cancer, bringing out our defensive edge but also inspiring home-improvement projects and progress on our more intricate family work.
This more introverted energy is enlivened by Mercury, now in Leo, which encourages us to reach out to strangers or old friends and tell stories late into the night. If we are a politician, we may try to pass those stories off as truth, and do so with bombastic humor. It brings a warm-hearted, but vaguely oblivious streak, if we get what is going on with another person, our response can be generous, but it can be harder to automatically empathize.
On Monday, Taurus brings us back to our body but on some difficult aspects can stir the pot as Mars squares Uranus, and we can get really difficult about other people’s mistakes. Sparks fly, whether of human chemistry or in grass wildfires, so watch where they land. It furthers take on a productive challenge and get physically tired.
Romance needs extra attention this week though. Over the weekend we could bump up against one another with minor clashes of needs and opinions as Venus semi-squares Mars. We may want to be romantic but our timing can be a little off, or our energy distracted by an influx of people and experience. Relationships can feel scattered, as if we’ve got too many considerations in the crossfire to stay really connected, unless we consciously hold hands and glance at each other across the crowded room to share a private joke. Early in the week misunderstandings can easily interfere as Venus squares Neptune and Mars squares Uranus, but we can feel each other underneath the words. So, notice the chemistry and express through helpful romantic actions rather than try to talk it out.
A chance for emotional healing and more natural connectedness arises later in the week as Venus trines expansive and friendly Jupiter while Mercury trines serious Saturn. Just be aware that no one wants to be ignored. Just trust the love, expresses as much as possible and let your beloveds feel seen.
Friday, July 14: Cuddle and keep expectations low this morning, our brains just won’t want to work at peak efficiency while Mercury quincunx Neptune. Honor the need to rest. Also honor a need to get serious in response to some fleeting insecurity this afternoon as the Sun quincunx Saturn. The mood lightens as Mercury sextiles Jupiter towards happy hour, and the energy picks up as the Sun goes down and the Moon enters feisty Aries.
Mercury quincunx Neptune 12:19 AM, Moon trine Sun 3:26 AM, Moon square Saturn 4:08 AM, Moon trine Mars 11 AM, Sun quincunx Saturn 12:29 PM, Mercury sextile Jupiter 2:45 PM, Moon conjunct Chiron 3:39 PM Moon enters Aries 5:52 PM.
Saturday, July 15: It feels like a lot going on this morning, or at least that’s what we’d like. The desire for excitement and engagement, but that can leave us a little out of sync with one another as Mars squares semi-squares Venus, relationships can be taxed by tangential needs and differing rhythms unless we give each other a lot of room and last and share our unique perspectives. Look for diversity of experience dive into something fresh and new, stretch the soul. Notice a chance to connect with stranger or strange idea this afternoon and engage in commune late into the night as Mercury trine’s Venus.
Venus semi-square Mars 11:49 AM, Moon sextile Venus 3:40 PM, Moon opposed Jupiter 9:03 PM.
Sunday, July 16: Now for something completely different, or so we may hope as Venus semi-squares Uranus. Some haunting news or mood brings a more serious note midafternoon as Mercury quincunx Pluto, and may require a moment alone or a need to reach out, so check in on people who tend to isolate. After an afternoon of adjustments and edgy new experiences, the Moon enters more settled Taurus tonight and the need for comfort reasserts.
Mercury trine Venus 12:30 AM, Moon square Pluto 2:05 AM, Moon trine Saturn 9:50 AM, Moon square Sun 1:25 PM, Mercury quincunx Pluto 1:50 PM, Moon square Mars 7:11 PM, Venus semi-square Uranus 7:37 PM, Moon conjunct Uranus 8:18 PM, Moon enters Taurus 11:04 PM.
Monday, July 17: It furthers to be around water, to keep expectations low and dreamy, to ply our creative process in dreams together as Venus squares Neptune under the cuddly Taurus Moon in the morning. But later, when we’re good were very good, but when we get irascible, watch out as a difficult Mars-Uranus square amp up friction and brings technical complications that require engineering ingenuity. Keep the duct tape handy. Watch where the sparks fly, literally, notice fire hazards where it is dry and swamping where it’s wet.
Venus square Neptune 8:33 AM, Mars square Uranus 7:36 PM, Moon sextile Neptune 10:55 PM.
Tuesday, July 18: A day for emotional depth that produces healing as the Moon the Taurus Moon trines Pluto and lets us share from an unusually deeper level in a more even-keeled and concrete way while Venus trines Jupiter open our hearts. It also encourages us to spend money on artistic beauty, so watch the impulse buys. Take some breaks and laugh along the way, but use any opportunity to open the aperture of understanding.
Moon trine Pluto 5:30 AM, Mars trine Chiron 7:22 AM, Moon square Mercury 10 AM, Venus trine Jupiter 2:08 PM Moon sextile Sun 7:55 PM.
Wednesday, July 19: Conversation continues as the Moon enters talkative Gemini while Mercury forms a grounded and sane trying to Saturn. We’ll talk more about logistics and less about our feelings today, but can write and communicate with unusual ease- once we get going. We just need to remember our goals and clarify our point.
Moon enters Gemini 1:31 AM, Mercury trine Saturn 1:15 PM.
Thursday, July 20: Keep talking; good communication helps with a nervy static as the Sun squares electrical Uranus under a talkative Gemini Moon. We may be confronted with information which challenge our status quo or find that supposed facts have been misapplied to justify an opinion. To keep honest with ourselves, we can keep lines of communication open and consciously make an effort to understand where the other is coming from. Be careful of tender hearts this evening as Venus quincunx Pluto, eschew any emotional power trips, and put compassion first.
Moon square Neptune 12:18 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 2:54 AM, Moon conjunct Venus 5:38 AM, Mars enters Leo 6:19 AM, Moon opposed Saturn 1:32 PM, Moon sextile Mercury 4:03 PM, Venus quincunx Pluto 6:19 PM, Sun square Uranus 6:25 PM, Moon sextile Uranus 11:40 PM.
