at 12:58am retrograde chiron in aries sexitles pallas athena in gemini, linking the Wounded Healer with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess in harmonious ways. pay attention to information, revelations and communications incoming. they can be healing and revealing of the Greater Pattern at play in your life and the world around you! as this occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams for messages from the Unconscious!
juno contraparallels eris in aries at 9:48am, creating dissonance between the Goddess of partnership and marriage and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! some say that juno’s associated sign of libra IS the rulership for eris! juno/eris brings focus to relationships, partnerships, marriages and contractual arrangements and where things are being disrupted as something not being dealt with needs to be addressed. this is ‘rock the boat’ astrology- so be aware of what is being swept under the carpet and deal with it head on right now for best results!
at 4:01pm the sun in leo trines retrograde chiron in aries, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron is amazing for healing around our fire, desires, masculine energy, will and drive. learning right use of power, fire and will is key with chiron in aries. healing around our sense of self, identity and self esteem is also possible right now.
tuesday august 9th-
at 1:18am venus in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. from 8/7 until today venus has been triggering the separating pluto/eris square- which can bring up some big time shadow dynamics in relationships situations. jealousy, possessiveness, obsession and the desire for power and control can be super strong right now. because of the cancer/capricorn opposition this can be playing out in home/family situations, with children and regarding our own childhood as well. being willing to see into the shadows- our own but also that of others- is key.
at 6:26am at 5:44pm mars parallels uranus and the mean north node- energizing the conjunction between these three that happened august 1st. from then until today we have had a SUPER APSECT between the God of War, the God of Revolution and the node of destiny! activation, change, reversals and sudden events are possible! some may be freeing and liberating, others could feel chaotic and unexpected. either way the winds of change are blowing!!! it’s a good time to read or re-read my blog on the Uranus North Node conjunction here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
mercury in virgo quincunxes retrograde jupiter in aries at 9:06am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. mercury in virgo is detail oriented but also critical and jupiter can exacerbate those tendencies. add in jupiter’s transit through aries and we want to be aware of communication right now as it can get extra combative or aggressive. speaking up with compassion not reactivity is key!
at 9:26am mars in taurus semisquares retrograde jupiter in aries, creating tension between the God of War and ego drive and the God of expansion but also excess. jupiter is in mars sign and this morning with so much mars and tense jupiter energy- we want to be aware that people can be reactive and impulsive (including ourselves). having practices on tap that help us pause, count to 10, breathe and find a place of response rather than reactivity is key! positively the jupiter energy can help us take action when we have been digging in our heels or sitting on the sidelines. just make sure actions taken are not reactions and impulsive in nature.
wednesday august 10th
at 6:44am the sun in leo squares the mean nodes of the moon, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the nodes of destiny and karma. from today through tomorrow the sun triggers the uranus/north node conjunction from end of july and builds to the fixed grand cross full moon square uranus and the nodes that happens tomorrow! we are building to a very powerful lunation !!!! when a planet is square the nodal axis we are at a crossroads. we can keep doing the same old karmic patterns or we can let go and grow in new directions. choose wisely as the fixed nature of these signs can really dig in their heels and what you set into motion right now can be very hard to reroute!
mercury in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 8:34am, creating tension and friction between the detail oriented mind and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. life is not always in a neat little package and sometimes conversations/information comes up to throw us. the key here is staying open to seeing the Truth, seeing the shadow and dealing with what arises. if you are sitting on anger and rage and not giving it an outlet- it can come up and out!!! the same with others. navigate communication terrain with consciousness today.
at 7:05pm the sun contra parallels saturn in aquarius, energetically opposing the conscious self and ego in his own sign with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time in his own sign! from now until sunday we have an extra potent SUPER ASPECT between these two compounded by the Full Moon conjunct saturn tomorrow and the sun/saturn opposition on sunday. this can be heavy, limiting and karmic- facing us with blockages or restrictions that may not feel fun to deal with. we are up against our own resistances and places of being stuck and stagnant! there can be some big time GET REAL moments unfolding this week. if we can use the astrology wisely saturn can help us get masterful, more integrous and we can face reality on it’s own terms. pay attention to where Aquarius is in your chart (tune into horoscopes up around noon on monday) as this area of your chart is magnified this week!!!
thursday august 11th-
at 8:51am retrograde jupiter in aries trines ceres in leo, aligning the planet of expansion and positivity with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. this can be lovely for taking action around home and family, in matters pertaining to children, parents and more. with both bodies in fire signs the creative and passionate energies at our expense right now can be tapped in powerful ways! give birth to new things today!
the sun in leo squares uranus in taurus at 8:53am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener. sun/uranus is a wake up shake up aspect- wherever things are stuck or stagnant we can be shaken up today! we do need to be aware of where we are overdoing the radical, revolutionary energy and where we are staying stuck in rigidity and resistance to change. this leads us to a potent full moon in aquarius square uranus tomorrow! prepare for wake up/shake up energies and stay open to change!!!
mercury in virgo sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 1:58pm, creating tension between the logical mind and the Lord of the Underworld. mars, the sun and now mercury all tensely aspect pluto this week- next week it will be venus’ turn. what is in the shadows is coming to Light. where power and control are abused is being exposed. virgo in its highest is here to serve, be a servant of the people and take of the body and the earth. communications can be intense- so navigate with consciousness. dig deep and be willing to face the shadow within and without.
at 2:30pm venus moves out of cancer and into leo, shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty from water to fire, yin to yang, inward focus to outward focus. venus in leo is passionate, fiery, self expressive and loves to have fun! the coming weeks of venus’ transit through leo is a time to get in touch with the child within, create, play and enjoy life. just watch out for being overly self focused, narcissistic and proud ;)
mars in taurus sextiles retrograde neptune in pisces at 5:44pm, linking the will and drive with the planet of spirituality and mysticism. this is great for taking our energy and channeling it into creative expression, selfless service and spiritual missions. mars is deeply embodied in taurus and in harmonious alignment with neptune in watery ethereal pisces we can truly bridge body with Spirit and Soul right now.
the full moon at 19’22 aquarius is exact at 9:36pm EDT, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in leo trine a standstill jupiter on july 28th! that new moon was all about new beginnings creatively, romantically and expressively! it was about living from the Truth of our hearts! this full moon is a check point about where we are doing that and where we are NOT. the full moon is conjunct saturn which can bring heavy, get real moments that demand we see and deal with reality. the sun/moon/saturn opposition squares the nodal axis with uranus on the north node- so this is a MAJOR activation of the biggest astrology of the year (the uranus/north node conjunction). as this is a fixed cross lunation we can feel the pressure closing in- showing us the aspects/paths of life that are open, expansive, evolutionary versus the ones that are stagnant, stuck, patriarchal or old paradigm. letting go to grow is key- but discerning the baby from the bathwater is required.

sunday august 14th-
at 1:00am uranus parallels the mean north node, energizing the conjunction of these two from july 26th-31st (mean and true nodes) in powerful ways. when we have an aspect by degree and declination we call it a SUPER ASPECT. having this just a couple weeks after the aspect by degree makes this already powerful transit pack a punch even more. this is a transit of BIG CHANGE. but it is also confronting us with all that we are holding onto out of safety, security and playing it small. these first two weeks of august have been powerful. take stock of where you are with the changes being asked of you- and then do the work to get on board and open up to the new! now is a great time to read or reread my blog about uranus conjunct the north here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/uranus-conjunct-the-north-node-sudden-and-irrevocable-change-7-26-8-1/
the sun in leo opposes retrograde saturn in aquarius at 1:11pm, energizing the full moon/saturn conjunction that was exact on august 11th. sun/saturn brings get real moments and karmic situation to a head. saturn brings limitations, restrictions and obstacles we must overcome! if in the last few days you have run into blockages- know that this, too, shall pass. with leo and aquarius involved the issues can play out in romantic relationships, with children, friends or social connections. saturn will reveal what has a good foundation to build on and what does not. the Great Pruning Shears of saturn will show us where/when/who it is time to cut losses with. pay attention.
at 1:41pm mercury in virgo quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. mercury/chiron can bring us face to face with old wounds and pain around communication, seeing/dealing with reality and how we deal with our anger and rage. the masculine is in the midst of major healing and upgrade but first all the shadow around masculine energy within and without needs to come to Light. luckily mercury is also about to trine uranus and the north node- just as all the virgo planets will be doing. wounds and pain coming to Light can be transformed and broken free from if we are willing to do the work. the key is to face what is arising right now- so don’t stuff things!
retrograde neptune in pisces sesquiquadrates ceres in leo at 3:38pm, creating tension between the planet of idealism and illusion and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. both jupiter and neptune link with ceres this week- Jupiter more harmoniously and neptune tensely. both jupiter and neptune are idealistic and expansive- and love to be compassionate, giving and loving. yet tense neptune can exacerbate tendencies to not want to see home/family dynamics clearly OR can lead to over sacrificing ourselves in ways that are not healthy. balance is key!
at 5:28pm mars in taurus trines retrograde pluto in capricorn, linking the lower will with the Higher Will for ultimate transformation and regeneration capacity! stay focused on the end goal and be willing to take one step at a time. think long term reward not short term gratification. both bodies are in earth signs so there can be great strides taken in terms of career/life purpose and abundance generated via work. this is an aspect that can move mountains- use it wisely!
have a blessed week…
