The astrology forecast for the week of August 1, 2022 through August 7, 2022 features five planetary aspects (Mars conjunct Uranus, Venus sextile Uranus, Venus sextile Mars, Venus trine Neptune, and Mars square Saturn), and Mercury moves out of Leo and into Virgo.
It’s a busy week, so without further ado…
The major aspect of the week is Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Mars conjunct Uranus is an extremely unpredictable aspect, because it doesn’t like limitations, and will attempt to free itself from constraints. Of course, this creates enormous tension, and it’s easy to get caught up in impulsive decision-making, even if it’s to your detriment. You may also notice that people are more ‘on edge’ (or you may be), and the slightest provocation can lead to a volatile reaction.
Working with Mars conjunct Uranus is difficult, because it runs on energy and adrenaline, not rationality. So, you need to be as proactive as possible this week. Mars-Uranus does reveal the areas of your life that are limited, because these areas will be where you feel the most frustrations. Try to channel this energy into making changes in your life, but do so once the dust settles, so you can use your wise mind, not your momentary emotional response.
Monday, August 1, 2022
We start the week off with Mars conjoined to Uranus in Taurus. You may feel agitated with others, and you may react in potentially rash ways. You may feel extremely frustrated by situations in your life where you feel discouraged or feel the system is holding you back. As best as possible, try to be proactive, and think things out before making a move.

The highlights for Tuesday feature Venus forming helpful sextiles to Uranus and Mars. Since Venus is a benefic, she will bring out the more constructive side of Mars conjunct Uranus, which is the urge to break free from limiting constraints, and she will help do so productively. Furthermore, you will notice that you want to be around people that are adventurous and add excitement and pizazz to your life. Boring and monotonous activities will not do it for you, because you need to do something that excites you and feeds your soul. Plus, Venus sextile Mars is positive for financial investments and new business prospects.

The Moon moves through Libra on Wednesday. Libra is in the sign associated with relationships, and it’s an excellent day to focus on yours. This evening, the Moon forms a lovely trine to Saturn, and it’s an auspicious time to work through relationships that may have been difficult over the past few weeks. Although you will want to smooth things over, make sure you do it while honoring your boundaries.
Thursday, August 4, 2022
Mercury moves out of Leo and into Virgo. Mercury in Virgo understands life through day-to-day experiences. This is an excellent time to try to manage your life more efficiently and pay attention to the pesky little details. You will also notice that the more stable your life is, the better your outlook on the future will be.
Friday, August 5, 2022
The Moon moves through Scorpio and retriggers Uranus, Mars, and Saturn. Unresolved emotions from earlier in the week may resurface, so stay on guard. You may feel intense emotions throughout the day, but try not to let them influence any decisions you need to make. If self-doubt surfaces, push those thoughts away.
Saturday, August 6, 2022
The Moon moves into Sagittarius shortly after noon, and it’s the perfect day to go out and have some fun. It’s been a difficult two weeks, astrologically speaking, and it’s not over yet. You may want to spend time with people you enjoy and take a brief break from the real world. Do something fun and adventurous.
Sunday, August 7, 2022
The last day of the week brings us a conflict of conflicting aspects. We begin with Venus forming a lovely trine to Neptune. It’s not a great day for practical matters, because you may have a hard time staying focused. However, it is great for creative projects. But make sure you work on anything creative early, because this afternoon Mars squares Saturn in Aquarius. You may feel discouraged by life, and this could easily trigger your insecurities. It’s also easy to fall into a fear-based mindset, and this could make you feel ill at east with your life. While Mars is square Saturn, it’s recommended you take a deep look within and figure out what you want and need out of your life.
See you next week!
