How Free Do You Feel? — Forecast for Aug. 5th – 11th
This week’s headline items: Uranus’s Station phase intensifies on Monday, and that same day is when we can also start taking actions on our New Moon Intentions. Mercury’s station ends on Tuesday, the first Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Wednesday afternoon, Jupiter’s station intensifies on Thursday (and comes to a halt on Sunday morning — ending its 4-month Retrograde phase), Mercury changes sign from Cancer to Leo on Sunday afternoon, and Uranus comes to a halt on Sunday late evening, starting it’s 5-month Retrograde phase.
There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday very early morning (for 8 hours), Thursday late morning (for a little over 5.5 hours), and Saturday afternoon (for 9 hours).

Now for this week’s Forecast…
Monday, August 5th:
Monday, the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra all day. The energy of the Libra Moon helps us be naturally courteous and diplomatic; we are more polite at this time, as we seek the approval of others.
We very much want to maintain equal, fair relationships at this time, and are therefore open to making compromises and negotiating. These next two days are a great time for mediation — but our need for peace and accompanying aversion to direct conflict could pull us to “yes” more easily than we might like.
We may also be able see both sides of the equation so well that we can’t make decisions. As best as you can, find an inner balance with this and communicate what needs to be said with grace and charm — even if it’s “No” 😉 One last quick note: this is also a great time for anything to do with visual arts.
Monday after 6:25am EDT, it’s time to take actions on our New Moon intentions: if you set Intentions last week Wednesday night, Thursday, or Friday — after the New Moon became exact — today (Monday) will be the best time to take relevant actions. If you wrote your intentions down, go back and take another look at what came through intuitively. If you didn’t write anything down, get quiet for a moment and check in with yourself: What actions are calling to me?
Monday late morning, we have an opportunity to connect with others for collaboration and an exploration of our beliefs about life. What does expansion of the mind look like? How might a wider view support our connections with others?
Also, Monday late morning, we are invited to make some adjustments in our lives and find creative solutions to seemingly unsolvable situations. As best as you can, look for solid foundations under any long-term goals currently underway, and for ways to create win-win outcomes for one-on-one relationships.
Monday afternoon, we are invited to make some internal adjustments. We may want to connect with others, but may also need to tune in to our intuitive inner voice. What do you hear when you get really quiet?
Monday late evening, we may need to make some adjustments and find creative ways to work with the energies at play: On the one hand we need to collaborate with others and play nice, on the other hand, we feel a deep desire to be authentic and truthful about what we want to build long-term.
Also Monday, Uranus’s Station phase intensifies — and will appear to move particularly slowly through the sky until Aug. 19th. It will come to a complete halt on August 11th in 6.5 degrees of Taurus and begin its 5-month retrograde phase.
When an outer planet stations, its energy gets more pronounced, and this can sometimes cause discomfort. We are being asked to hang out with that discomfort until the planet’s energy picks up speed again around August 26th.
Definitely expect the unexpected while this is going on: Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional structures and moving towards a new future — one that serves others as well as ourselves. Its keyword is “Freedom”: this aspect provides an opportunity to discover how free we actually feel. So… how free do you feel?
As best as you can for the next three weeks, pull whatever is “in your face” even closer and take a good long look at it: our intuition will be very strong and deliver sudden insights and ideas, especially around what needs to change in our lives. What if you expressed your individuality to the fullest? What does the “larger vision” look like? Where is the obstacle?
Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet — so don’t be surprised by interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are likewise ruled by Uranus, so these will move more to the forefront of awareness.
As best as you can during this aspect, stay open and flexible, go with the flow — and pay attention to messages from the Universe 😉
Some of us will feel the effects of this station more than others: those of us with a…
