The astrology forecast for August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021, features three planetary aspects (Sun oppose Saturn, Venus trine Uranus, and Sun square Uranus) and a New Moon in fiery Leo. So, it’s another challenging week (although better than the last few weeks), but manageable if you work with the energy.
Last month, Venus and Mars went through the wringer with Saturn and Uranus, and this month it’s Mercury and the Sun’s turn to bat. In August, the saving grace is Jupiter’s return to Aquarius provides a bit of protection that was not available in July.
Just a reminder, Saturn square Uranus is the major astrological aspect of 2021. So, this energy will continue to be triggered by planets making aspects to both juggernauts throughout the year. Saturn reflects the need for protective structures. Uranus signifies the need to shake up the system and usher in innovative ideas and visions that may be more helpful in everyday life. Since the two of them are currently square (obstacles), they tend to polarize one way or the other. We experience extremes, and you will notice that alive and well in our political climate in 2021. The key to working with this aspect is to give life to both sides of the polarity without tearing yourself in two. Finding ways to bring new elements into your life that are progressive and more sustainable overall, while feeling like you are not uprooting your life in an unmanageable way is the objective.
This week, the Sun retriggers Saturn square Uranus, so you may feel anxious and agitated with situations that are going on in your life. You may need to make changes in areas that have become too rigid, or you may need to build structures if things have gotten out of control. But, regardless of the side of the square you land on, finding balance will bring you the most meaning.
