Mars conjunct Uranus 18º43’, moon enters Libra, Venus sextile Uranus 18º43’.
Mars and Uranus meet in Taurus.
At 01:53 Mars and Uranus meet up in earth sign Taurus. An abrupt fight for peace. This can be a risky combo— remember safety first. There’s something strange and sterile about those “rage rooms” where people go to break things, but that’s the image that this is evoking.
The moon enters Libra.
At 06:05 the moon enters cardinal air sign Libra. Despite the chaos or challenges of this week, people are still communicating with respect and dignity. There is an ability to keep the peace despite the strange circumstances.

Mercury enters Virgo, the moon enters Scorpio.
Mercury enters Virgo.
At 08:57 Mercury enters Virgo, its home sign! Mercury in Virgo is able to put a concrete name to concepts that typically are abstract, emotional, or without form. Communication is strengthened.
Moon enters Scorpio.
At 13:46 the moon enters Scorpio. The coming days are resourceful, however there can be some challenges. The periods of fixed moons (Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo, Taurus), especially Scorpio moons, are not the easiest days. However, can be certainly transformative and spiritually purifying.
I anticipate Saturday (CET, so Friday night in the USA) can be clunky, chunky, and/or funky, if not for you then for someone else. Remember to be extra, extra kind and polite this weekend. You never know what other people are going through.

The moon enters Sagittarius.
The moon enters Sagittarius.
At 18:38 the moon enters mutable fire sign Sagittarius. Themes of spirituality, philosophy, and belief are materializing. There is an adventurous and curious spirit to the weekend. A desire for freedom and playfulness, however, serious circumstances can be putting on a lot of pressure.
Sunday, August 7
Venus trine Neptune 25º02’, Mars square Saturn 22º05.
Venus in Cancer harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces.
At 18:42 Venus and Neptune form a creative, imaginative water trine. An advancement in beauty, values, aesthetic forms. Incredible emotional sensitivity. Possibly feeling something that isn’t there, but it’s still emotionally true or real. Strong supernatural, otherworldly vibes. Seeking value in the irrational.
Mars in Taurus clashes with Saturn in Aquarius.
At 21:56 Mars squares off with Saturn. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Stubborn things have to be moved with force. It’s not easy, but with persistent effort, mountains can be moved. Activities requiring stamina and dedication are favored.
