Weekly Horoscope – 1 to 7 August 2022

A rundown of the main transits for the week is below, or you can jump directly to the horoscopes for all zodiac signs.

We start the week with Mars moving up to conjoin the North Node and Uranus. Mars will conjoin the North Node early afternoon (12:55 pm C.D.T.) on Monday. The Mars conjunct Uranus aspect will be exact early evening (6:31 pm C.D.T.) on Monday. The Mars conjunct Uranus aspect will start to wane from late morning on Wednesday. 

From the early hours of Monday, Venus moves up to sextile Mars. The Venus sextile Mars aspect will be exact mid-evening (8:31 pm C.D.T.) on Tuesday and start to wane mid-afternoon on Thursday. 

From late morning on Monday, Venus moves up to sextile Uranus. The Venus sextile Uranus aspect is exact mid-morning (7:22 am C.D.T.) on Tuesday and will start to wane from the early hours of Wednesday. 

In the very early hours (1:58 am C.D.T.) of Thursday, Mercury enters the sign of Virgo. Mercury is in domicile and in exaltation in Mercury, meaning it can effectively carry out what it wants (communications, learning, etc.).

From early morning on Saturday, Mars moves up toward its upcoming square with Saturn. The Mars square Saturn aspect will be exact early afternoon (2:26 pm C.D.T.) on Sunday and start to wane from the very early hours of Tuesday.
