Astrological Almanac for Sunday, August 8, 2021
(All times Eastern)
The Moon starts the day with a conflicting aspect to Uranus, making the morning uneasy and feeling unbalanced. The Sun squared Uranus on Friday, and when the Moon catches the Sun at 9:50 am to form the New Moon in Leo, they are both still in a close square to it. So the uncomfortable sense of the last few days is now “baked into” the New Moon chart, and will be a background influence for the next month. Here on the East Coast, it falls in the 11th house of social groups and organizations; so it’s likely to affect our relationships with these types of entities. Uranus squares them from the 8th house of death, debt, taxes, and shared resources. So these are also likely to be themes this month.
Overnight, the dark Moon conjoins Mercury; normally this would bring a positive tone to communications and sales, but this time it may all seem a bit “off,” with the prevailing energy of the New Moon chart.
Venus moves into opposition with Neptune tomorrow, increasing the likelihood of poor judgment in relationships. More on that tomorrow.
