Astrological Context, Week of August 29, 2022

(All times Eastern)

Remember that these aspects (aside from entry into new signs) will be in effect a few days before and a few days after the exact dates listed here. So keep this in mind when reading the daily updates this week.

This week is a little quieter than last, with just a couple of aspects, and one ingress. On Thursday, Mars sextiles Jupiter, giving us an energy boost. This is likely to be accompanied by optimism and confidence.

On Friday, Mercury arrives at the exact opposition to Jupiter. A few comments here: first of all, Mercury is already slow, getting ready to go retrograde on the 10th. Combined with their opposition to Jupiter, we are likely to see some challenging effects already in the areas ruled by Mercury: communications, sales, messages, studying, young people, etc.

Next Monday, Venus enters Virgo, which is challenging for her. While she generally likes being in Earth signs, she is opposite her sign of exaltation (Pisces) and so is considered “in fall.” The brings a mixed bag. She functions well on an earthy, touchy level, but can tend to be too picky and dry in terms of relationships. Keep this in mind if criticism arises in your own relationships.

In the meantime, this week is excellent for viewing both Saturn and Jupiter in the south from the mid-evening onward each night.
