There’s a lot going on in the skies this week with a good combination of both tense and harmonious energies. We kick off the week with a hard square between Mars and Uranus, fueling frustration, change and impulsivity, and we finish out the workweek with a similar, although slightly less intense aspect between the Sun and Uranus, adding further impetus for change. We do have some very nice energy brewing mid-week with Venus coming into a beneficial trine with Jupiter in Libra, bringing more adventure and optimism into our relationships and financial situation.
Monday (7/17): Venus, in the trickster sign of Gemini, forms a challenging square with magical, mystical Neptune in Pisces today. While this energy can be good for creative projects, it may also bring up issues surrounding manipulation, deception, escapism and delusion. For those who have been sporting those rose colored glasses when it comes to relationships, now is a time when you may experience some form of disillusionment. If you’ve been turning a blind eye to the lies you’ve been told by others, you may find yourself uncovering the truth about money matters or important relationship dynamics.
Mars in Cancer comes into an exact square with Uranus today, merging the energies of the planet of war and aggression and the planet of disruption and revolution in a way that may feel quite tense. People may be more prone to impulsive, risky actions today and moving too hastily can trigger aggression from others and cause us to become more accident-prone. This transit may bring up situations that disrupt our feelings of emotional comfort and security and require us to take new, innovative action. While some sort of change will almost certainly be necessary, rushing into things is not advisable at this time. Be sure to take your time and think things through before initiating new action over the next couple of days.
Tuesday (7/18): Venus begins to come out of it’s square with Neptune today and moves into a harmonious trine with optimistic and expansive Jupiter in Libra. This is an excellent energy for stimulating creativity, manifesting our dreams, and exploring new spiritual philosophies and belief systems. This is also an excellent time for daydreaming and planning future adventures and travel. With Venus square Neptune still relatively active today, just be sure not to become overly optimistic or unrealistic about those plans. ☺
Wednesday (7/19): Mercury in Leo comes into a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius today, making this an excellent day to work with integrity toward our most optimistic long-term goals. This aspect is great for communication, especially for communicating with authority figures or people that are outside of our own age group. This is a time when our work can flow much more easily and our thoughts become more rational, logical and practical all the while remaining optimistic in their outlook.
Thursday (7/20): The Sun in Cancer comes into a disruptive square with Uranus today, once again triggering tension, frustration and the impetus for change. This aspect can bring us unexpected changes of plans as well as flashes of divine inspiration and insight. Now might be a good time to begin reviewing and acting on Monday’s Mars/Uranus impulses if you haven’t already done so yet. ;)
Mars moves into Leo today, joining Mercury and the North Node with the Sun soon to follow suit! Mars in Leo calls on us all to become more courageous and to take action from the heart, not from the head. This is an excellent time for creative activities, going out to parties and restaurants, fun physical activity, and taking action that allows us to be seen by others in a more positive light!
