In the Stars July 31-August 7, 2022 ... shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun is in fun-loving Leo, shining its light on summer fun. Jupiter has joined Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto in retrograde motion on July 28, drawing us deeper into a period of re-consideration and review.

Mars conjuncts Uranus and the North Node August 1-3, an extremely volatile configuration. Mars will square Saturn on August 7th, adding tension. The entire week ahead is filled with this strong pressure. However, this difficult planetary energy can also used for good. It has tremendous creative potential, and could propel you to work on a compelling project, solve a problem, or turn in a new direction. The energy can be destructive or generative. It has the signature of an earthquake that suddenly breaks structures apart and generates change. Carefully consider what you will be doing during the week ahead, and make conscious plans that account for the dangers and galvanize the opportunities.

The demands for productivity continue on Sunday. There are numerous possibilities with dynamic planetary energies. The Sun is conjunct jovial Jupiter, giving optimism and expansion. Uranus conjuncts the North Node, and Mars is near the conjunction, all trine in earth sign Taurus to the Virgo Moon. This planetary combination is creative, dynamic, and explosive. Do something new outside your usual patterning, but be safe, as this can be an impulsive and accident-prone combination, as well as it is crackling with opportunity. </
