A new week has been bestowed on us and we have SO many intense transits happening this week.
This week we have : Jupiter stationing retrograde, Venus conjunct Neptune, Sun Square Saturn, Mercury Sextile Pluto, Mercury Square Jupiter, Sun Square Pluto, Venus Sextile Saturn, Sun Trine Jupiter, Venus Sextile Pluto, and all of the Moon transits in between.
This energy causes so many opportunities for large life changes and we may feel a huge sense of overwhelm in the days to come.

We may be faced with a lot of uphill challenges this week but we are all here to grow and learn from those things and turn them into opportunities for a new self to emerge.
Tarot Cards representing the week:

Moon Void of Course 1:28 AM
Moon enters Gemini 2:15 PM
With the Moon in Gemini we could feel a need to be more social or chatty in the later part of the day. We also are prone to anxiety/over thinking if we do not have a healthy way to expend our energy. It will be important that we find something to do that stimulates our minds in a healthy way.
Moon in Gemini
We continue to enjoy sharing our minds with others, or stimulating our minds in ways that are interesting to us. It is positive to read a book, do some writing, or have beneficial conversations. Because of some of the more tense aspects in the evening, it will be important that we find some space and tranquility in the evening hours to calm down and ground ourselves. We need to avoid having serious discussions about relationships and feelings in the evening hours as the energy is tense and not the best grounds for working through things at this time in regard to a partner. We benefit from spending some time alone processing our own healing and doing things that help us to nourish our minds and hearts in a more personal and private way.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Moon Square Venus in Pisces 9:51 PM
Tension in the evening around communicating our feelings in a relationship is enhanced and we are more prone to over thinking or even obsessing about a potential person or situation. We may feel confused about our feelings and the current state of a relationship and it is not beneficial for us to obsess over it. We need to find a way to work through any insecurities we are having on our own rather than projecting our feelings onto the other person, playing any blame games, or having a pity party about it.
Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 9:59 PM
This energy is very ungrounding and can cause us to have a lot of illusions around what is actually happening in our lives. We are prone to over thinking or over fantasizing about something that is out of reach and it could lead us down a path that is not beneficial to our mental well being if we do not find a way to keep ourselves grounded in reality.
Venus in Pisces Conjunct Neptune in Pisces 11:14 PM
We will feel this transit for the next few days and it is an extremely beneficial energy for creative and artistic energy. If we feel like our imaginative and creative visualization is at an all time sudden height, this transit could be the helping hand. This is a great time to move forward on any new creative projects, or picking up on one that you have been feeling challenged or stuck with. Our sensitivity to others is also heightened during this time and those of us with a lot of water or Pisces energy in our charts may be extra susceptible towards picking up on the energy of others at an almost if not actually psychic level. Dreams will also get a boost this week so pay attention to the messages and symbols coming to you from the astral plane.
Moon Void of Course 10:27 AM
Moon enters Cancer 8:31 PM
We have an immense amount of powerful transits happening today, and with the Moon also Void of Course most of the day it is best we go with the flow and don't get hung up on whether things go as planned. This is not a good day to start anything new in regard to business, finances, travel, or work matters, and we need to move slow and cautiously with our energy for the next few days. The Moon in Cancer in the evening will have us wanting to retreat and nurture ourselves. It is best to focus on some self care in the evening hours and stay away from large crowds or groups of people.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Sun in Aries Square Saturn in Capricorn 1:47 AM
This is an incredibly difficult transit that influences our sphere the next few days. We have a lower sense of vitality and self expression can feel extra hard at this time. We are more judgmental and critical of ourselves and others during this transit. Our work as well as our own personal goals and ambitions could feel stifled or like we are not growing to the level we want to in life. We could feel depressed, drained, and desire a huge need for isolation.
It is important during this time that we find a way to soften our energy and not become too rigid. This energy will pass, and we do best assessing where the feelings are coming from and figuring out what habits we are having in our lives that may need altering or changing so that we can align ourselves more with our long term goals. This may not be the time to implement these changes, but it could be the catalyst towards realizing what changes need to be made.
Moon Square Mercury in Pisces 7:43 AM
Communication is difficult in the morning and we could be feeling extra moody or emotional. It is best to try and do some grounding meditations to get out of your funk. Don't be surprised if you wake up feeling depressed as the astroclimate leads more towards that for the next few days. Try to remember that it is in our down cycles that the most growth happens. And that this too, shall pass.
Jupiter Stations Retrograde in Sagittarius 10 AM
Our large planet of travel, higher education, indulgence , and adventure stations Retrograde today until August 11th! This will be the first retrograde of 2 more happening this month and will activate difficulties around expansion and growth as well as education and travel. Not all retrograde energy is "bad" and we need to remember that there is always a polarity of positive/negative to every transit. Our free will and ability to perceive situations as good or bad is what dictates whether something happening to us is indeed good or bad. We have a lot of power to dictate how energy impacts us on a mental and emotional level. This retrograde period will cause us to grow in new ways and may challenge old ways we have been used to when it comes to our relationship learning and growing past what is comfortable for us. If we have been suffering from overindulgences with substances, food, or over spending this transit may help us to evaluate what isn't working and focus on getting help. It is time to evaluate what growth we are resisting and where we need to open ourselves to new opportunities and lessons from the Universe.
Moon Opposition Jupiter in Sagittarius 10:27 AM
There is a large potential for us to feel restless and seek fulfillment through overindulgence or escapism in some form. We may feel like we need more out of life and it is hard to stay put and get things done in our mundane reality. Try not to be too extravagant in an unhealthy way during this time and find small ways you can work new things into your life without putting yourself in the hole.
Mercury in Pisces Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 2:40 PM
There is a deep realization and need for transformation and this energy allows for us to feel what needs to be done at a soul level. We have deep insights during this time towards our goals and we benefit from using this time to educate ourselves on things that matter most to us. Our intuitive/psychic abilities are enhanced as well and we benefit from doing a lot of spiritual work over the next few days and expanding our knowledge and awareness of ourselves on a deeper level.
Moon Sextile Uranus in Taurus 11:49 PM
This energy allows for us to be more open to change and new insights about ourselves and our lives. We may feel more willing than we have before to make these changes. We also may experience some unexpected changes in our home environment or within our family.
Moon in Cancer
The Moon in Cancer asks us to unplug and recharge where we can. We benefit from being kind to ourselves and others a not pushing it too hard at this time. Focus on carving out some time for self care today.

This transit is a difficult one and causes a lot of tension around communication and travel. There is also a lot of room for misunderstandings and not seeing things the way they actually are.

Moon Trine Venus in Pisces 8:04 AM
This is an intense surge of emotional energy and can manifest for us as a deep need to connect to the more feminine sides within ourselves. We also may desire a romantic and emotional connection to others at this time. Because we are likely to be more sensitive than usual, it is wise to be kind to ourselves and find ways to focus on self love and self care throughout the day.
Moon Opposition Saturn in Capricorn 8:05 AM
We may feel at odds with what we need to do in the mundane practical sense, and what we feel we need emotionally. Try to find a way to give yourself both rather than leaning too much on one side. Handle your responsibilities with care, and be kind to yourself.
Venus in Pisces Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 8:08 AM
This is a harmonious energy for our hearts and manifesting the things we wish to accomplish in the physical world. We benefit over the next couple days finding ways to work through our feelings in a more practical and grounded way. If we are at the beginning of a new relationship, we also may feel like we are ready to take things to the next level.
Moon Square Sun in Aries 12:06 PM
Tension in the afternoon around our feelings and need for expression/assertion is enhanced. We need to be mindful with where we project our egos onto others as well as where we feel the need for control.
Moon Opposition Pluto in Capricorn 1PM
We may have a hard time feeling grounded during this transit and emotionally we could feel like we are not in a place where we want to do the things that are calling our attention. There could be a desire for power in areas where we are feeling powerless. We benefit from being kind to ourselves and not trying to make any drastic changes at this time. Set the intentions around the changes rather than implementing them right now.
