Authorities begin to act more boldly, with the Sun and Mercury in Leo, showing a desire to heroically conquer the disease. It is easier to boast than to deliver.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday August 5th – The Moon in Pisces makes a conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) with Ceres as inspiration to serve the community envelopes the younger generations, with selfless acts of kindness. The sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) follows later in the day, as improved attitudes take effect and improve distribution of necessary resources. Mars in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Jupiter is jarring to the sensibilities. Ambition and justice in social -political matters collide.
Thursday August 6th – Ceres and Moon in Pisces are disposed of by Neptune. The Moon in a conjunction aspect (0 deg, combing) with Neptune, sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to Jupiter and semi-sextile (30 deg, nudge) to Mars in Aries could be the release of favorable news from the log-jam of dis-information v. truth. A plunge into the abyss could result in the extinction of a false narrative. Mars in the square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Jupiter continues today with less intensity. A slow realization that there is truth in the counter-narrative.
Friday August 7th – The Moon ingress to Aries in the morning hours (US time zones), with Venus ingress Cancer four hours later, as initiatives begin to bear fruit.
