For the week beginning with the waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio, August 7 - August 14th:
The emphasis on relationships is huge for you this week, Aquarius, as the personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars) gather in your seventh house of partnership (either intimate or professional) and are encouraged by Jupiter and the Moon in Sagittarius.
We begin the 2nd lunar quarter on Wednesday, August 7th, exact at 1:31 PM EDT. This quarter Moon asks you to take action on the seeds planted or ideas germinated at the Leo New Moon regarding partnerships. You might find that you need to make some adjustment in your career or public life so you can proceed with your course of action.
On Thursday, August 8th, Venus in your Leo 7th house of partnership forms a beautiful flowing exchange with Jupiter in your Sagittarius 11th house of friends and wider networks, suggesting that you may attract new friends and potential partners. If you are looking for a new romantic partner, now could be the time they show up! The Moon enters Sagittarius about the same time, bringing emotional focus to this fiery flow between these two houses. Who knows, a friend could become a lover about now.
August 11th is a busy day among the planets as Jupiter turns direct, Mercury enters Leo, and Uranus turns retrograde.
Since April, retrograde Jupiter has been asking you to review your beliefs or your spiritual growth in this area of friends and wider networks. He is almost stopped now at 14˚ Sagittarius and will begin to creep forward on August 11th. By then you should have a renewed sense of optimism and expansion in this area.
Also on August 11th, Mercury re-enters your Leo 7th house, picking up speed after his backward movement into Cancer. Mercury joins the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo, placing even more emphasis on your area of partnership. Now would be an excellent time to put into words exactly what you look for in a partner or a client. Write it down! Works like magic. I did that before I met my husband, and I swear he has every quality I listed, and more besides!
Uranus has been parked at 6˚ Taurus for weeks now and will turn retrograde on August 11th. You’ve been feeling his presence especially in your area of home and family since May, and possibly last fall as well. Uranus is the planet of change and revolution. He often brings sudden and unexpected disruption. Those of you with fixed signs rising (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus) are experiencing big shifts in major life areas of self, home, relationships, and/or career. Think back to May of this year, and also to May through October of last year when Uranus was briefly in Taurus. What has changed for you?
On August 14th, Venus joins the Sun in your 7th house, making you, Aquarius, simply irresistible. Venus is on fire and attracts potential partners to you like moths to a flame. But remember to shower love and appreciation on any partner you already have. Be generous with your affections!
