Oh My Stars

A typical horoscope lays out what you can expect for yourself in the next week or month based on your Sun Sign. That sort of thing is great, sure… especially if you happen to be the only person on your planet. Astrology, like life in general, is a lot more complicated than “there are twelve types of people, and here’s what’s going to happen to them today.”

This “horoscope” is a listing of the major planetary aspects, ingresses, and events for July 2017. Each aspect is described below, with the date the aspect is exact and a “+/-” which indicates the number of days that aspect will be most in effect. Generally, the closer to the exact date, the more pronounced the effect of the transit. And of course, as with everything else in life: your mileage may vary.

But first, a word about aspects in general. Conjunctions, squares and oppositions can all be difficult. They generate the sort of energy that can get all up in your face and is hard to ignore, but it’s hard to get much done in life without the raw energy they supply. Trines and sextiles are helpful and constructive, but it’s easy to miss out on the opportunities they provide unless you make an effort.

August 4   Jupiter square Pluto
(+/- 10 days) Energy and enthusiasm are great and wonderful things — but they can also fuel a riot. Make sure you’re justified before you start throwing bricks.

August 7   Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Aquarius
(Check back here for details closer to that date!)

August 10  Mercury sextile Venus
(+/- 3 days) Creativity and clever communications are all possible now.

August 10   Mars quincunx Neptune
(+/- 6 days) So sexy, so charismatic… and potentially so delusional! You may be feeling lucky without good reason, and you may succumb to flattery.

August 10   Sun sextile Jupiter
(+/- 5 days) Generally a good and optimistic time, filled with good energy and a feeling that things will work out all right.

August 12, 2017   Mercury Retrograde
Be particularly cautious with your communications, short trips, and agreements until September 5th.

August 12  Venus trine Neptune
(+/- 4 days) Sweetness and light, romance and kindness, and broken diets and overspending!

August 13  Sun trine Saturn
(+/- 5 days) A good time to “get your act together” and make some positive changes in your life.

August 15   Venus opposite Pluto
(+/- 4 days) The depth of your feelings and affections increases… be careful not to drown in them.

August 16   Mars quincunx Pluto
(+/- 10 days) Quincunxes indicate two planets that are forced to interact but do so awkwardly. Mars and Pluto combined this way can make for sudden, inappropriate outburts of anger or lust. Be careful with those!

August 17   Venus square Jupiter
(+/- 4 days) Good times! How good? Really good, probably… unless you need to control your blood sugar or you are an excessive hugger.

August 20  Mars sextile Jupiter
(+/- 6 days) An opportunity to usefully employ your energy towards making your life (and those of others) a better place.

August 21   Solar Eclipse at 28 degrees Leo
(Check back here for details closer to that date!)

August 21  Sun trine Uranus
(+/- 4 days) It’s good to be an individual and to express it your own way. Be yourself — no one else has the clothes for it.

August 22   Mars trine Saturn
(+/- 6 days) Leave a lasting impression, make a breakthrough that will stick, and focus your energy on long-standing obstacles.

August 24   Venus square Uranus
(+/- 4 days) Strange and unusual affections, new attractions, and peculiar tastes are cropping up in unexpected places.

August 26   Sun conjunct Mercury
(+/- 3 days) You may be having powerful thoughts and ideas, but they may prove difficult to express properly.

August 27   Jupiter sextile Saturn
(+/- 10 days) When optimism, good fortune, and a solid base come together, great things can happen. Now is the time to start building something that can last.
