August has arrived, and the year is nearly half over. You can expect some changes in your life and the world around you since Uranus just went direct. It won’t be instantaneous in the coming months. This week, you may experience some unexpected changes to your behavior due to the transits.
The Sun in Leo opposes Saturn in Aquarius on Tuesday. As a result, you may feel tired and low on energy. Venus in Virgo makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus on the 3rd. The problematic Sun opposition Saturn transit can allow some brainstorming, which can help you develop your creative side. There’s nothing like playing a card game with a colleague, or visiting a casino, to make this transit an experience you won’t soon forget. So keep your imagination in check.
Mercury squares Uranus on the 4th, so you will likely speak and act impulsively on that day. Therefore, be wise if you decide to gamble in a casino! Word choice is crucial. You could upset your co-workers or clients if you don’t think your words through before you speak.
The Sun makes a square to Uranus on the 6th, which can influence your behavior as well. There is a possibility that your eccentric side will come out, which may surprise your colleagues, but you will also see the same in them. Lastly, the week finishes with the New Moon in Leo on the 8th. A creative project is a great way to spend your time right now. You can achieve your goals by taking advantage of your creative side. How will you do this week based on your sign?
Aries – You may be presented with some new opportunities. Ahead of time, it will be essential to assess these energies. You may be tempted to jump into things without much thought, but make sure you think before you do. You will waste money and time in such a case. The Fool shows up, which suggests that the opportunity to come to you will not be something you are familiar with, and put your thinking cap on before jumping into it.
Taurus – Depressed and tempted to go shopping can both occur at the same time. You may even wonder if anyone values you. Instead, it would be best to think about the times when you have been appreciated at work and home. You may receive an appreciation message this week as well. If you keep this in mind, you will be reminded that your work is necessary and appreciated. That can provide you with some insight. The Queen of Pentacles shows up, which means you are more of a nurturing type than you think. You want to provide everyone the best and in a practical way.
Gemini – During this week, it would be ideal if you went on a short local trip since working would not suit you right now. Thus, taking some time off may also relieve you of the burden of conversations with colleagues. Before starting work during the New Moon, rest at the cottage or somewhere nearby. Four of Swords comes up, which confirms the importance of relaxation right now.
Cancer – You may want to spend a few days at the cottage or somewhere nearby to recharge your batteries. During this week, you suffer from high energy levels, and you cannot handle a work environment or a strict home environment. During the New Moon, there are many ways to stay calm. The Hermit card comes up, which means you will want to make sure that you take some time to yourself and reflect on what is important to you.
Leo – Your optimism will motivate you to start a new project or side business. Your energy will be used more effectively since you will have the extra motivation to research and plan for your new business or side hustle. The Ace of Swords comes up, which means you will be gaining some clarity on what you will need and want to do for a side hustle.
Virgo – This week, you will begin to understand some things, which will give you relief. You will no longer feel confused about where you stand in your social circles. You will become more productive, and you will be pleased to see that your work produces better results – or results that make you happy. Judgment is the tarot card that comes up, which means you will gain those insights with your intellect and intuition and develop a new perspective.
Libra – This week, you will get a reality check you haven’t experienced before. Consequently, you might find that the project you’re working on or the side hustle you’re doing isn’t exactly inspiring. It would be best not to waste your time on something that does not make you happy. Afterward, determine whether or not they need to be replaced. Clarity will come with the New Moon. Finally, four Cups come up, and you will want to explore why you are losing your enthusiasm.
Scorpio – Your discipline has recently been tested. You will find that you have many options this week. A member of your network may present it to you, or another method may be used. You will be able to see what you want, motivating you to keep working towards excellence. There’s no need to narrow down anything just yet. However, you also want to make a good impression. Temperance comes up, which is a reminder to be patient with yourself.
Sagittarius – During this week, you will have plenty of energy, and it would be an excellent opportunity to attend some networking meetings to get ideas for your next career steps. This week, let’s be social and utilize the help we can get to make a difference. The Seven of Cups comes up, which means you will feel pressured to make a decision but don’t feel that way because there are no options to choose from yet. Instead, focus on collecting any information, which means at a later time, you can sort through it.
Capricorn – Having an open mind last week was an excellent start to this week, and it will continue this week. When your attitude towards life changes, you will feel more optimistic and enthusiastic about the things you do every day. New Moon energies will also support your productivity and facilitate some creative solutions. The Moon tarot card comes up, which means you will want to be careful when it comes to believing everything you see because you want to see the good in all of it.
Aquarius – Prepare yourself to face a challenge this week, as you will have to overcome it. It might be work-related, or it might be personal. Taking on this challenge may, however, gain you some positive recognition. In addition, the Nine of Wands comes up, which means you do have a lot to tackle, but you will be able to do it.
Pisces – If you observe your career and personal situations objectively, things will come clear to you. You will be able to discern any changes you plan to make since so much will make sense. The process may involve you throwing away or evaluating anything that isn’t serving a purpose for you. If you have any unfinished projects, this is the time to complete them to see where you want to go. The Two of Pentacles comes up, which means there are plenty of things to juggle, and you want to make these changes to become easier for you.
The first week of August will bring some intense transits after the New Moon – but you can handle it!
