Horoscope By Triana J. Elan August 1 - 7, 2022 Saturn in Aquarius Squares Uranus in Taurus (Again!); Mars in Taurus Squares Saturn in Aquarius, Sun in Leo Trines Jupiter in Aries

  • Written by Triana Elan

Let’s go back to the beginning of 2020…remember? 2020 was a rough year and it was under the shadow of the great Saturn/Uranus square. Well, due to retrogrades, this square is visiting us again hence the ratcheting up of political strife and nasty tempers in general. For a while, everything will once again be under this umbrella.

At close range, Mars in Taurus is arguing with Saturn in Aquarius, fueling the fire on the world stage and making everyone crabby in general. Even the calmest people are jumpy now, “for no reason.” Time to tread lightly and not add to the fray. It’s a good time to pull back and keep our heads low, especially for sensitive types that don’t hold up well in conflict.

It’s not all bad, though…the Sun in Leo is dancing with Jupiter in Aries and this pair beckons us to enjoy the festivals, music, parties with our friends and merry making whenever possible to act as a cantilever to the above. This is how we stay sane, by infusing ourselves with goodness whenever we can, and there is plenty of goodness around.

The message for the week is: Pay attention to what you are paying attention to!

*On a personal note, I apologize for no horoscope column last week…I’m facing shoulder surgery and last week my shoulder was giving me such fits that I couldn’t type.

Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…

Keep looking after each other!
