The astrology forecast for the week of August 15, 2022 through August 21, 2022 features three planetary aspects (Mercury trine Uranus, Venus trine Jupiter, and Mercury oppose Neptune) and Mars moves out of Taurus and into Gemini.
So, after five LONG weeks of troubling astrological energy, the cosmos cools down. This will be an excellent week to recharge your batteries and relax. So, without further ado, let’s dive right in.
This week Mars moves out of Taurus, the sign of his detriment, and into cerebral Gemini. The airy quick-witted energy of Gemini combines with the fiery fast spirit of the planet Mars. Mars in Gemini is a welcome relief from the stagnancy of the sign of Taurus. Mras can now get the show on the road, and situations or circumstances that may have stalled will build momentum again. However, Mars in the sign of the twins may feel scattered and all over the place. You may have a difficult time focusing on what needs to be accomplished, because there are so many options and interesting that might catch your eye.
Working with Mars in Gemini requires keeping your big picture objectives in mind, and staying away from trivial pettiness that may distract you from your mission. Mars in Gemini can also be easily triggered and likes to fight, so watch what you say, avoid being impulsive, and keep your boxing gloves at home.
Now, on with the forecast.
Monday, August 15, 2022
We start the week off with the Moon in energetic Aries, with the Moon conjoining Jupiter shortly after daybreak. The Moon in Aries urges you to go after what you want, and Jupiter helps deliver the goods. It’s a great day to pursue your big picture goals and objectives, because lucky Jupiter will guide you down the right path. Don’t ignore this energy or miss your moment.
Tuesday, August 16, 2022
Mercury trine Uranus is an exciting aspect, because it enriches the mind with new thoughts and inspiration. You may feel inspired by your conversations with others, and this may propel you on a new and exciting mental journey. Mercury trine Uranus is also useful for finding solutions to problems that have baffled you. Your heightened intuition may allow you to break through obstacles with new solutions.
Wednesday, August 17, 2022
The Moon moves through stable Taurus and aspects Venus in Leo. It’s an excellent day to flex your social muscles and spend the day connecting with others and meeting new people. New connections made today should prove rewarding. Also, since the Moon is in Taurus, spend some time doing things that are pleasurable, and make sure you enjoy something decadent.
Thursday, August 18, 2022
The social vibe from yesterday continues today as Venus trines Jupiter in Aries. This is an excellent time to connect with others, because you will be in good spirits and have a pleasant attitude. Also, Venus trine Jupiter is excellent for financial activities and investments. In fact, the only problem with this aspect is that it flies by with the quickness, so take advantage of the energy while you can.
Friday, August 19, 2022
Ah, what a social week this is, which is a welcomed relief from recent energies. The Moon moves through social Gemini and forms a lovely sextile to Jupiter. Once again, your mood should be positive and uplifting, and combined with the Gemini Moon’s need to connect with others, it’s an excellent time for a date night, socializing with others, or just going out on the town. Conversations with others will be lively and mentally stimulating.
Saturday, August 20, 2022
Mars moves out of the structured and stable realm of Taurus and enters airy Gemini. Your mind will be on overdrive, and anything may distract you that stimulates your intellect. You may feel restless, and it will be hard to focus on anything that you find boring or insipid, mainly because all the new and shiny things in your life will excite you more. The good news is that Mars in Gemini is a problem solver, and you can often resolve issues quickly and efficiently. However, watch what you say to others, because you may say something you regret and can’t later take back.
Sunday, August 21, 2022
We end the week with a troubling aspect, as Mercury opposes Neptune in Pisces. Mercury oppose Neptune is a baffling aspect that leads to confusion, and often miscommunication. It’s not the best time to make major decisions or engage in business deals, because information received at this time may be suspect. Also, avoid shady people and remember that if it is too good to be true, it probably is.
See you next week!
