Visit www.AstrologyWithAnanur.com.|Friday, July 31 - The Full Moon takes place at 6:44 a.m. with the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun directly opposite at 7 degrees of Leo and Neptune at 9 degrees of Pisces, causing some unsettling energies. This Full Moon actually is ideal for making music. Because Neptune is involved, there will be unrealistic thinking. Mercury is in a fine aspect to Uranus, which connects you with your intuition, rather than your analytical mind. This aspect is great for creative expression that comes about freely, with ideas sparking you suddenly. Venus will enter Leo at 11:31 a.m. and remains in this affectionate, generous, romantic, fiery sign until mid-October. Venus is retrograde; also retrograde are Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Saturn will be turning direct soon: August 2, Sunday. No, Mercury is NOT retrograde. However, with so many planets retrograde it does make it a challenge to move forward with plans. It will be better when Saturn turns direct. Today from 8:30 until 10:30 p.m. your mind will be colored by "the addiction to being right." This "addiction" brings conflict and arguments unless the two of you agree to laugh it off.
Saturday, August 1 - The Sun is in an awkward aspect with Neptune, which tells me we all need to spruce up our immune systems! Don't eat any sugar today. That's a tough one for most of us. This aspect ends at midnight. Mars is in an energizing aspect with Jupiter. You can get a lot done if you have a plan in mind and don't overextend yourself. This aspect also ends at midnight. Mercury is in a positive aspect with Uranus until midnight. Intuition is strong today. Allow your inner genius to talk to you. A disappointment may come about between 2 and 4 p.m. while the Moon is in a challenging aspect to Saturn. Jupiter is in a difficult aspect with Saturn and Pluto.
Sunday, August 2 - Saturn will turn direct today, having been retrograde since mid-March of this year. It will be much easier to make things happen in the material world. All that has been held back will shift, release and move forward. Jupiter is still aspecting Saturn and Pluto, which denotes financial problems trickling down to the general public. Saturn is still in a nasty aspect with Pluto, which has been going on since June 14 and continues to stir up problems due to prejudice. This aspect is with us until mid-September. Mercury is still in a positive aspect with Uranus, until noon, increasing intuition. Your ideas are ahead of the times and your friends may not understand what the heck you're so excited about. Don't worry about it. Trust your intuitive knowingness.
Monday, August 3 - Venus and Jupiter are awkwardly aspecting Saturn and Pluto. If you were to begin a new romance now it would end up being a lesson you would not forget. The attraction would be powerful and the emotional strain would be immense. Is it worth it? "They say" you have to get your heart broken open in order to expand your consciousness and have capacity for empathy. The Moon will be in a positive aspect to Mars and Saturn between 12 and 4:30 p.m., indicating that you are highly energized and very focused.
Tuesday, August 4 - Venus and Jupiter are still awkwardly aspecting Saturn and Pluto, until tomorrow night. There's something important to be learned from a difficult relationship. Try to remain open-minded, even if your heart is breaking wide open and the relationship is splitting apart. You may feel like you're losing something important, but the lesson you gain in the long run is truly worth it. It's still workable; don't give up yet.
Wednesday, August 5 - What was true yesterday is still true today. Venus and Mercury and Jupiter are all conjunct and are awkwardly aspecting Saturn and Pluto. Personal relationships are indeed going through a rough patch. You're not alone. We are all needing to learn some lessons that are uncomfortable. The good news is that Venus, Mercury and Jupiter are also in a positive aspect to Mars, suggesting that although it's a rough patch there is a desire to resolve the uncomfortable issues that are not going away. Between 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. the Moon will be aspecting Mercury, Mars, Venus and Saturn, indicating that open, honest sharing is the correct path.
Thursday, August 6 - Mars is nicely aspecting Mercury and Jupiter until tomorrow night. Communications are good. Sharing with each other is going to save a relationship that has a strong foundation to begin with. Don't give up. Profound insights come when the Moon is in a positive aspect to Pluto. That takes place between 6:45 and 8:45 p.m.
