The astrology forecast for the week of August 8, 2022 through August 14, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Venus oppose Pluto, Sun square Uranus, Mars sextile Neptune, the Sun opposes Saturn, and Mars trine Pluto), a Full Moon in Aquarius and Venus moving out of Cancer and into Leo.
So, for the fourth week in a row, it’s going to be a busy week. Let’s dive in…
Last week, Mars got tangled up in the ongoing Saturn square Uranus configuration. This week, it is the Sun whose up to bat. Whereas Mars is our ability to go out into the world and get what we want out of life, the Sun is our identity and our destiny.
Now, this is difficult energy, but every aspect has a purpose. In the case of Sun square Uranus and Sun oppose Saturn, the purpose is to get us to make the necessary changes in our lives, to get us back on the right path.
Of course, when our lives are running smoothly, who wants to make change? However, when the world impinges itself upon us through daily frustrations, obstacles, and limitations, we notice where we need to make changes, where we need to build structure, and ultimately helps us (despite the difficulty) get back on our path. Since we are working with the Sun, creating necessary change will ultimately help you experience fulfillment and joy.
Now, on with the forecast!
Monday, August 8, 2022
We start the week off with the Moon void of course in Sagittarius. Try to avoid starting anything new or signing documents until the Moon moves into Capricorn at 2:39 PM EDT/10:39 AM PDT. Once the Moon moves into Capricorn, it’s an excellent time to tie up loose ends, focus on tasks that need completion, and tend to duties and responsibilities.
Tuesday, August 9, 2022
Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn. It’s time to get real about relationships, regardless of how painful and emotionally intense they may be. Conflicts in relationships may surface, and it’s best to avoid manipulative power struggles. Often Venus oppose Pluto will show you how you are being codependent in your relationships. The key to working with this aspect is to accept the relationship dynamic for what it is – the good, the bad, and the ugly. You can then make decisions about the relationship’s future, if need be. Govern yourself accordingly!
Wednesday, August 10, 2022
The Moon moves through Capricorn, and there is still residual energy from yesterday’s Venus-Pluto opposition. It might be best to focus on your duties, obligations, and responsibilities, and try to push away intrusive negative or obsessive thoughts if they surface. This afternoon, the Moon moves into Aquarius, and it’s a perfect time to hang out with a close friend or someone you trust.
Thursday, August 11, 2022
On Thursday, the Full Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius at 9:36 PM EDT/6:36 PM PDT. This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening yourself up to new experiences. Also, Venus moves into romantic Leo, and for the single people out there, you may find yourself attracted to someone new. For everyone else, you may start to feel romantically alive again, but don’t let your emotions go overboard, and try to let things manifest organically.
Friday, August 12, 2022
The Moon will be void of course in Aquarius during the early morning hours. Therefore, avoid starting anything new or making firm agreements until after 2:44 PM EDT/11:44 PM PDT, when the Moon will move into Pisces. This evening is an excellent time to watch movies, explore the arts, or simply enjoy good music. The Moon in Pisces is perfect for rest and relaxation, and after the intense energies of the past month, you deserve it.
Saturday, August 13, 2022
The Moon continues to move through Pisces on Saturday. Try to be as clear and precise as possible when communicating with others, because the Moon will oppose Mercury until mid-afternoon. Later, Saturday evening, it’s an excellent time to do something outside the box and unconventional. Discovering and exploring new things is always recommended when the Moon sextiles Uranus. It’s also a good time to spend the evening with friends and other like-minded individuals.
Sunday, August 14, 2022
We close the week with the Sun opposing Saturn in Aquarius. The Sun oppose Saturn is a difficult aspect, because we often feel alone and at odds with the world around us. You may also feel that people are trying to hold you back or are trying to thwart you. Ultimately, you may need to make compromises (big and small) to gain momentum again.
See you next week!
