Astrological Context, Week of August 7, 2023

(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 has only a few planetary aspects, but they could be important ones for a lot of people.

On Wednesday, Venus squares Uranus, bringing a highly unstable energy to relationships, social mores, and artistic endeavors. It’s a time to look for sudden changes and reversals – moreso now because Venus is also retrograde. Look also to the house of your chart where Leo falls, since that will indicate a major area of change.

Also on Wednesday Mercury trines Jupiter in earth signs. This at least gives us the opportunity to make good judgments about what is happening, and to make solid plans for the future, while not overlooking details. Most folks will experience one or the other of these transists personally, but if you get both, this one will be helpful in dealing with the Venus-Uranus square.

On Sunday, the Sun and Venus conjoin in Leo. Venus is moving retrograde and the Sun is moving forward, toward each other. A planet this close to the Sun is generally quite ineffective, but from about 3am-11am Sunday, Venus stands at the “heart” of the Sun, a condition known as ‘cazimi,’ which mitigates that debility and may even supercharge her. So early Sunday morning is the best time if you have needed to deal with relationships or artistic projects.
