Your Weekly Horoscope for July 31 to August 6, 2022: Analyzing the Cosmic Messenger

July 31, 2022

Beginning on Sunday, July 31, there will be three transits to set the stage! First, Mercury in Leo will oppose Saturn retrograde in Aquarius, indicating a clash between the egocentric cosmic messenger and regressing modern malefic. Although these two have opposing views, Mercury can encourage Saturn retrograde to reconsider how a mentality that is communicated can influence a structure or hierarchy. Expect a potentially frustrating transit if there are differing opinions about the semantics of a checks and balances system. The fixed energy of the opposition can be exceptionally dogmatic, so it might be more depressingly narrow-minded than optimistic. Hopefully, Mercury’s sunny disposition could encourage Saturn retrograde to change its tune! 

After the opposition, the North Node will conjunct Uranus in Taurus, suggesting that the wild child is aligned with destiny. Fate exudes a shock value as Uranus electrifies the possibilities of innovation, individuality, and radical stability. Although this might be surprisingly unconventional, the conjunction implies that the ultimate comfort is achieved by embracing the ever-changing unknown. 

Finally, the sun in Leo will trine Jupiter retrograde in Aries, promising a fiery flow between the domicile luminary and the regressing teacher planet. Even though Jupiter retrograde is reeling it in, this trine is still immensely positive if introspective! Whatever you aspire to accomplish can be achieved by reconsidering how one directs their ambition, creativity, and confidence. Taking a step back to consider the trajectory of one’s time and energy can lead to something greater. More importantly, the trine offers a chance to become genuinely comfortable with being assertive without coming across as unintentionally aggressive.  

The following day, Mars will conjunct Uranus and the North Node in Taurus. Although the transit is similar to yesterday’s conjunction, Mars adds a slightly aggressive undertone to achieve immense stability! Mars is asserting itself as a power player as the warring planet can encourage everyone to assume the tenacity needed to go after their individualistic ambitions. Even though Mars is fall in Taurus, it can still create an incredible determination come hell or high water. Since Uranus is still shaking things up, Mars can hold down the fort as the collective embrace their destiny.

A day later, Venus in Cancer will sextile Mars, Uranus, and the North Node in Taurus. Now that the Taurus tone was established over the last few days as the magical conjunctions came to fruition, the frugal love goddess has a new perspective to offer as the Taurus-led transits stabilize a fated yet progressive assertiveness. Venus encourages the subtle facilitation of emotional security by committing to one’s ambition of embracing a progressive future. Additional themes like love, beauty, style, aesthetics, money, and romance could become involved. 

Mercury enters Virgo

The flighty cosmic messenger finally enters one of its domicile signs — Virgo! Similar to Mercury in Gemini, this Mercurial transit is also concerned with communication, knowledge, and mental agility. But the similarities end there as Mercury exalts the feminine, mutable earth aspects of Virgo. 

Although chatty, Mercury in Virgo is more conscientious of tone, turf, and timing. Active listening is easily facilitated during Mercury in Virgo as this transit prefers to gather information to correctly assess before acting. Since Mercury in Virgo is detail-focused, you may feel an insane desire to perfect what it knows. Being right is crucial for Mercury in Virgo as there is nothing indisputable about fact-checking. Since this can be a nitpicky transit, a more critical tone can emerge. It might be initially off-putting, but Mercury in Virgo critiques because it cares! These comments will likely be paired with advice since Mercury in Virgo always means well.  

Quarterly Check-In with Luna

Say “goodbye” to the past as the first quarter moon in Scorpio embraces a death and rebirth process. Metamorphosis will take place during this lunar phase as the collective embraces a shared determination to bring any new moon goals or manifestations to fruition. Even though letting go can be daunting, the first quarter moon in Scorpio can help us go deeper than we have ever had before! It can be immensely empowering to embrace the intensity of the future.
