Astrological Context, Week of July 11, 2022
(All times Eastern)
Midweek has a small lineup of planetary aspects that will be felt all week, with Wednesday and Thursday the focus of most.
On Wednesday morning, Venus trines Saturn. This is a good time to evaluate/reevaluate relationships and aesthetic projects, and determine appropriate levels of obligation and commitment going forward. It’s also good for fulfilling already existing promises, and making new ones. On Thursday, however, Venus squares Neptune, which can bring a real lack of clarity around these issues, and even maybe a dose of unrealistic fantasy, so be careful with decisions now.
The same day, Mercury sextiles Uranus, while the former also approaches an exact conjunction with the Sun on Saturday. On the one hand, this can bring mental clarity and flashes of inspiration (Mercury-Uranus), on the other, Mercury’s proximity to the Sun means that their abilities can be “combust” or “burned up” and therefore, ineffective. On Saturday the day of the Mercury-Sun conjunction, these debilities are likely to be mitigated as Mercury stands at the heart of the Sun for much of the day. But then the lack of clarity may return immediately with Mercury’s trine to Neptune, which may entice us into diving deep into non-reality. As Mercury moves farther from the Sun and from the trine to Neptune next week, clarity may begin to return slowly.
