Starcodes Aug 5, 2022

Laze in the summer’s heat when you can because it may be busy week. The emotional winds pick up, we may be unusually productive but could have to deal with frustrations, whether because people aren’t available, mechanics break down, or fires and unexpected events churn the landscape as Saturn squares Mars and Uranus in Taurus. Savor each ripe tomato, each sweet moment in between.

Our minds sharpen with mental Mercury now in intelligent Virgo, and this can help us solve those problems with great ingenuity if we stop worrying and stay focused on solutions. Let’s not let our frustrations stop us but instead slow us down and help us think. Mercury in Virgo also asks us to think ahead to September and start planning between moments in the shade sipping iced tea.

Back to those emotional winds, with sensitive Venus in deep-feeling Cancer opposed Pluto this week we may deal with loss or miss old friends, long for a relationship that is just out of reach or feel our heart twinge towards something other than what we have. We may need to grieve a changing ecosystem or a more personal loss; this is a good week to let those feelings flow. Let that twinge pull us out of isolation or complacency and make the changes we need to reconnect.

The weekend begins potentially exciting or stormy as the Moon in Scorpio opposes Mars and Uranus, so keep an eye on wildfire, storms…
