The New Moon on Thursday at 5 deg Leo, has Mercury in Leo in a square aspect to Uranus in Taurus, with Mars approaching the conjunction aspect to Uranus. An ominous warning on environment, as forest fires rage and temperatures soar throughout the northern hemisphere. Neptune in Pisces turns retrograde, the retro phase lasts until December 4, 2022. Mars reaches the partile conjunction with Uranus on Monday and Tuesday (Aug 1-2). Ceres, the protector or environment and health, is in a conjunction with the Moon just hours before the Sun-Moon partile conjunction. The Moon ingress to Virgo on Saturday (July 30). Late on Monday (early morning in the eastern half of the world), the Moon is trine aspect to Mars, Rahu and Uranus in Taurus. A slower impact, although quite revolutionary and destructive actions follow. Be on the alert for dangers and/or life transforming occurrences. The Sun trine aspect to Jupiter in Aries on the same day magnifies the radical element. Venus in Cancer can act as a mediator in disaster, helping to respond with needed assistance.
The three outer planets are now retrograde, Saturn Neptune and Pluto, while Uranus on its station will turn retrograde 25 August 2022, with Pluto conjunction aspect to the natal Pluto of the US, a Pluto return. The investigation into the perpetrators of violence on January 6, 2021, seeking to overturn the results of the election, as well as review of actions of police in the case of the Uvalde school massacre, and numerous other court cases around the country, Putin’s invasion of Ukraine with the goal of acquiring that land, and China threatening to expand reach to Taiwan, formerly known as the Republic of China, are festering under this retrograde influence. As Uranus supersedes the nodal point of Rahu this week, a degree it will return to in late August, although Rahu regresses so that Uranus will not become partile to it again this year, so this month timeframe is crucial to examine many issues around violence. The abortion issue, also erupts as a reaction to the SCOTUS ruling, has also significance. Saturn retro in Aquarius is selective in a focus for reproductive rights (targeting one gender only). Saturn is within range of semi–sextile aspects to both Pluto (reproduction) and Neptune (dissolution). Individual reactions include sterilization to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Putting sperm in a sperm bank and undergoing vasectomy could be another solution. Neptune in Pisces dissolves while Pluto in Capricorn controls and for large populations in the Universal signs.

Reminder: While lunar aspects are in effect only for only a few hours, the aspect of the outer planets can last days and weeks. I post a reading for a day in advance in order to give a preview, also because the aspects may be in effect a day prior to the exact partile degree.
Hope you navigate the week successfully and share the joy! Thanks for reading.
