When readying ourselves for the coming week’s journey, packing generous amounts of humor, patience and perhaps even some old school technologies is advised. Though the week will take off under the disarming guidance of a gentle Pisces Moon, we’ll begin experiencing turbulence as soon as Mercury moves into lusty Leo on Tuesday.
Mercury in Cancer
A Leo Moon fires up the week on Monday with conjunctions to Venus and Mars, who themselves link up on Tuesday. For sunny, determined Leo, these get-togethers bolster confidence and resolve. Of course, this position also places the Moon, Venus and Mars opposite Saturn and square to Uranus. That said, Mars and Venus moved through the crunch points of those challenges during the past two weeks. So lions are likely feeling much more playful than ferocious, as long as no one pulls any tails. Monday sets the stage for more conviviality when an early Cancer degree Mercury trines altruistic Jupiter in Pisces.
This week’s edgy tone is set from the start. But some refreshment will arrive on Friday night, courtesy of the new Cancer Moon, and more will come on Sunday when Mercury moves into Cancer. Until then, we’re in for a contentious ride.
After the dust settles from Monday’s full Aquarius Moon, this week will see sign changes for Mercury and Venus. But before even lightening-fast Mercury can bust a move into fiery Leo on Tuesday, Mars will get into it with Jupiter.
Scorpio is also one of astrology’s inflexible fixed signs, and before the day is over that Scorpio Moon will clash with the Sun in fixed Leo and Uranus in fixed Taurus. If left unresolved, struggles that arise out of those collisions will intensify on Sunday when the Leo Sun squares Uranus and on the following Monday, August 3rd, under the full (fixed) Aquarius Moon. If you’re a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius) or dealing with a fixed sign person, choose your words wisely or wait for better conditions.
