The so-called dog days of August 2014 are upon us — exactly 100 years since the beginning of World War I, and the skies today have their own version of a titanic battle. In terms of celestial bodies close to Earth, all three planets nearby — Mercury, Venus, and Mars — are highly active.

Venus in Cancer is the main agent of change since this traditional heavenly orb of love and beauty squared shock-master Uranus last night, and now she proceeds to offer eager human souls a grand triangle in water signs, composed of 120-degree flowing trines to Saturn in Scorpio (3:23AM) followed by another one to Chiron in Pisces (8:06AM). Healing forces, although somewhat disguised or sluggish, are back on the march with the amelioration of old wounds the primary target.

Mercury — the Messenger of the Gods cool-communication winged-deity — reinforces interests in the widening field of alternative medicine by forming a potent, 135-degree tie with Chiron (2:51PM).

The red planet Mars — ancient ruler of both agriculture and warfare — takes on the biggest challenge by making a feisty square of 90-degrees to King of the Gods and leader-of-the-pack Jupiter (3:47PM). Their adversarial joust — deepening the rivalry between fixed and powerful Scorpio and Leo, respectively — can knock your socks off across the board. Therefore, the universe is putting a lot out on the line during this first 24-hour time-period in the eighth month of the year.

To add cosmic insult to injury, the Moon in Libra squares Venus in Cancer (7:59PM) — simultaneously starting an almost precise 24-hour void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 7:58PM tomorrow night. Don’t press your luck by making major overnight decisions. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time.
