The square with Uranus in Aries this month may rattle some Cancers (Cancer-Leo cusps in particular), whose foundations feel so very important to their safety. If you can, face the storm, albeit with a heavy raincoat and galoshes--- there’s no need to suffer. The sextile with Mercury in Virgo can awaken your mind and turn your feelings more effortlessly into words-- that is, until Mercury goes retrograde on August 12th. Before then, make an effort to tell people how you really feel; pen or sign things that feel of special resonance; read something challenging. Venus in Cancer (August 1-26) adds charm and harmony to the proceedings. You are unusually open to beauty and loveliness right now, and may find that your compassion runs deep. The waning crescent Moon in Cancer (August 18-19) shows a slow turning-inward, which can be used to great creative effect with the retro Neptune in Pisces trine all month. The retrograde Pluto in Capricorn sextiles your Sun, showing you that the superficial just won’t cut it any longer. It’s possible that during this transit, you may become very absorbed in a subject or pursuit , seeking to plumb it as deeply as possible. Recognizing and harnessing your personal power, too, is work that needs to be done.
