Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 7
As indicated in yesterday’s calendar entry, Uranus and its unusual archetypes are on center stage as this planet makes a station and turns retrograde at 3 degrees of Taurus (9:50am). Focus your inner gaze at the following themes – surprises, revolution and radical change, intuition, eccentricity, the multi-media and high technology, advances in science and industry, aviation and space travel, the occult and metaphysics, jokers and wild cards, drawing outside the box, anxiety and the nervous system, upheavals and anarchy. Even though the exact Uranus station occurs at 9:50am, the reality is that this entire 24-hour time-period is under the strange, magical, and topsy-turvy dynamics that astrologers have associated with this peculiar planet since its discovery during the year of America’s revolutionary victory against Mother England in 1781. (Uranus will remain retrograde until it makes its next direct station at 29 degrees of Aries on January 6, 2019.) Recognize that the moon in Gemini is in void mode starting at 12:56am and lasting until 9:02pm when the lunar orb enters its natural abode of watery Cancer. While the halt by Uranus is the number one sky event right now, honorable mention awards go to a dazzling solar union with problem-solving genius Pallas at 15 degrees of Leo (6:00am) plus a passion-stirring trine between Venus in Libra and Mars in Aquarius (5:34pm). Be sensitive to the needs of loved ones as the Venus-Mars rapport is amplified a few hours later when Juno forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Neptune (8:42pm). Home and family matters are additional priorities with the lunar orb transiting the fourth sign of the zodiac.
