monday august 1st-
at 4:07am mars cojoins the mean and true north node at 18’17 taurus, aligning the planet of will and drive with the node of destiny and evolution! throughout the day mars triggers the uranus/north node conjunction- arguably the biggest astrology of 2022! when major outer planetary configurations happen it is often not until mars or a lunation (full moon/new moon/eclipse) triggers the alignment that we really see the full power of the transit activated. today mars triggers the uranus/north node conjunction and on august 11th the fixed grand cross full moon does- so the first 2 weeks of this month are HUGE. add to this the fact that mars parallels uranus and the north node on august 9th and uranus parallels the north node on august 14th- and we have SUPER ASPECTS being formed by the God of War, the planet of Rebellion and Revolution and the node of destiny. it will be interesting to see what transpires personally and collectively in this much anticipated month of august. with mars on the north node pay attention to where you are being directed on your path of growth and evolution. signs, portents, connections and opportunities incoming can be profound! just watch out for excess aggression, impulsivity or reactivity. the mars/uranus combination is a recipe for acting before thinking and can be accident prone. if, on the other hand, you tend to sit on the sidelines waiting way too long – NOW IS THE TIME!!! it is a great time to read or re-read my blog about this powerful conjunction here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
mercury in leo trines retrograde eris in aries at 5:41am, aligning the mind and intellect with the fiery Goddess of discord and revelation! this is great astrology for pulling back the veil of delusion to get to the heart and Truth of matters. eris only wants Truth and she wants it at any cost. luckily this is a harmonious aspect so it supports us in seeing Truth, calling it out and aligning with it in masterful and evolutionary ways! speak the Truth, hear the Truth and stay closely aligned with your self esteem and self Love so that communications come from the heart today.
at 7:23am mercury in leo quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension and friction between the linear logical mind and the irrational, intuitive, cosmic self. mercury/neptune can be great for intuition, imagination, psychic perception and dreams! yet the tense aspect can make it harder to discern Truth from fantasy, fact from fiction. being able to question what we think we know and perceive is just as important as trusting our intuition and perceptions. if we overdo shadow leo we think we know it all and if we overdo shadow pisces we get lost and confused. taking time to meditate, reflect and introspect is key right now. rather than make definitive decisions take time to drop in and wait till this astrology passes- the fog will pass and the Truth will become clear!
mars cojoins uranus at 18’42 taurus at 7:53pm, linking the will and drive with the Rebel and Revolutionary! mars/uranus is a powerful aspect. if the will and ego is serving change and evolution this can be absolutely amazing. the key is we have to make sure we are not coming from ego, reactivity and impulsivity as actions taken/words said in haste can cost us. uranus just cojoined the north node (mean 7/26, true 7/31) so mars is activating this most significant transit of 2022- bringing a destined and fated energy and forward movement to the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. the Highest expression of this energy is to open up to greater resource and take action that supports self worth and self Love. this can also be great for innovative new things regarding the earth and environment. yet it can also speak to sudden or unexpected earth changes and destabilizing or chaotic events. use this energy wisely- be willing to embrace change and better yet bet the agent of it!
at 11:04pm venus in cancer sextiles the mean north node in taurus, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny in the sign of venus! pay attention to destiny today- people you meet, doors that open, pathways that open- can be beneficial, beautiful and positive! it may require that you close an old door and/or say goodbye to something to create space for the new.
tuesday august 2nd-
at 6:16am the sun in leo sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the conscious self and ego that wants to shine bright and the planet of mysticism, illusion and dissolution. this can be great for spiritual practices, intuition, dreams, creativity and surrender- but it can also exacerbate tendencies towards denial, delusion, avoidance of reality and checking out. finding balance between ego (leo) and spirit (pisces) is key! we are spiritual beings having a human experience- we want to honor BOTH! wherever we are overusing (abusing) one at the expense of the other- we need to find balance today/tonight!
venus in cancer sextiles uranus in taurus at 8:25am, linking the lower heart with the Higher Mind! venus/uranus is amazing for positive shifts and change in relationships, self-Love and self-worth. with both bodies in deeply yin signs that are uber feminine the shift comes when we embody more and allow our emotions and desires to express in healthy ways. this is a lovely time to do something different and open to the new!
at 9:24am mercury in leo quincunxes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the positive thinking mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld who likes to see and at times over focus on the shadow. mercury/pluto can be great for penetrating communication and getting to the Truth- but it can also unfold as power/control dynamics and behind the scenes manipulation. steer clear of these shadow expressions and disconnect from others who may be playing them out. instead focus on being wiling to see what is hidden- in yourself, others and the world around you. when able to see yourself/others/the world from a place of reality you are then empowered to change things!
venus in cancer sextiles mars in taurus at 10:00pm, linking the Divine Lovers in expansive, positive ways! venus in cancer values intimacy, closeness and emotional connection. mars in taurus values physical connection, sensuality and stability. the two together can bode well for relationships that are based on shared values and closeness! this is great for passion and romance- as well as creativity and slowing down to enjoy life.

at 2:58am mercury moves out of leo and into virgo- shifting the planet of communication and thinking from fire to earth, yang to yin, self focus to service focus. mercury rules virgo so is well placed here. the gifts of this transit are discernment, clarity, integrity in word and deed and desire to communicate honesty and directly. mercury aligns with regulus the royal fixed star of leadership and the heart of the lion (that precessed into virgo in 2012- to read my article on this click here- http://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/regulus-into-virgo-the-meek-shall-inherit-the-earth/). pay attention to where you are being called to step up and lead from the heart and from a place committed to being of service today. the greatest leaders are servants of the people. watch what people do- not just what they say.

at 9:49pm mercury in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain can come up in intense ways in communication and thinking today/tonight. mercury in virgo is discerning but also overly critical- of self and others. chiron in aries either repressed anger or acts out in it. watch out for passive aggressive communication that is cutting! the best use of this astrology is to bring greater awareness to our minds, thoughts and communication. if we tend to hold back – now is the time to speak up. if we tend to just say what we think without thinking- now is the time to take a pause and count to 10 so we are not communicating from reactivity but instead from a space of response. pay attention to where your growth and healing edge is today!
friday august 5th-
at 12:23pm venus in cancer quincunxes retrograde saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn can be great for being serious, focused, committed and grounded when it comes to relationships, finances and more. but this is a tense aspect so it can also be experienced as heavy, limiting, restricting, depressing and/or lonely. venus in cancer is emotional, sensitive and attached- while saturn in aquarius is stoic, thick skinned and detached. finding balance between the two for healthy expression is key. there may be some reality checks in home/family, relationships or finances incoming today- asking us to deal with reality.

at 12:11pm venus in cancer squares retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Goddess of discord and chaos! venus/eris can bring shocking and unexpected energies into home/family dynamics. being open to seeing what is going on beneath the surface so we can get to the root and Truth of matters is necessary right now. if we are holding onto the past or stuffing anger or passively aggressively expressing it- we can find this time extra intense and uncomfortable! tapping into eris’ energy and being willing to let go of what we hold onto that holds us back is recommended right now!
venus in cancer trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 12:42pm, aligning the lower heart and Higher Heart in amazing ways! this is amazing astrology for romance, creativity, spirituality, mysticism, intuition and empathy. when we elevate our lower desires to a Higher Plane we can find deep and lasting fulfillment on many levels. there can be beautiful things happening in relationship right now- to others, to our own feminine/Soul within and in regards to our relationship to the Universe. enjoy!
at 3:57pm mars in taurus squares retrograde saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the lesser and Greater Malefics! the ancients called mars and saturn the malefics- connected to the word malevolent- as they had great potential for destructive energy. everything has a shadow and Light though- so we can use these two together to harness our wills and egos and use power righteously if we choose. yet the shadow of these two going head to head can manifest as power/control dynamics, authoritarianism, dogma and power plays. mars in taurus is digging his heels in resisting change and saturn in aquarius can compound the resistance. self mastery is worth its weight in gold right now!!!
have a blessed week…
