Astrological Context, Week of August 2-August 8
(All times Eastern)
This week includes a Mercury square to Uranus on Tuesday which will make the first half of the week a time when we may have wild inspirations and crazy ideas, but ones which may be hard to manifest. If things don’t work out right away, write them down for later consideration. You may also find others arguing with you about ideas and ways of understanding.
This theme continues somewhat as the Sun (which was just conjunct Mercury) moves into the exact square also with Uranus by Friday. There is a shift to include issues of honor and reputation with the Sun. We may find that the ways in which we see ourselves and others shift or even reverse suddenly.
During the weekend, Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune, exact next Monday. Those days may make us feel highly sensitive and impressionable. We may not have the best judgment, and we tend to romanticize everything. If you’re one of the rare folks who have the Sun/Mercury square Uranus AND the Venus-Neptune opposition hit your chart, the weekend could end up feeling like a time when you are recoiling from the crazy energy and trying to deal with the energetic repercussions. Try to keep some shielding up, if you can, and decide what to let in or not.
