Venus enters Libra on the 16th, positively influencing any relationship, whether professional or personal. During this transit, relationships become peaceful and harmonious, making it easier to apologize if someone has offended you in the past or vice versa.
As Mercury conjuncts Mars in Virgo on the 19th, you will communicate directly and clearly and finally take action on anything you’ve put off for a while. During the eclipse, Uranus will enter retrograde, which will slow down sudden changes. For five months, it will remain retrograde. Now is a good time to reflect on the changes you have experienced.
Further, the Sun in Leo will oppose Jupiter on the same day, which could cause your ego to run wild as well, so be careful not to boast. Finally, mercury trines Uranus in Taurus on August 20, so it is ideal for resolving problems. This is a good day to deal with something you’ve been trying to resolve for some time, whether it’s work-related or personal.
During the Full Moon in Aquarius on the 22nd, the week closes with a chance to express your creativity, originality, and why you’re rebelling against some expectations. It just needs to be done carefully. The trine between Mars in Virgo and Uranus on the same day will also help you work hard and strategically.
