Weekly Horoscope – 22 to 28 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 Mercury moving up to trine Pluto. The Mercury trine Pluto aspect will be exact late afternoon (4:57 pm C.D.T.) on Monday and will start to wane by early afternoon on Tuesday. 

Late night (10:17 pm C.D.T.) on Monday, the Sun enters the sign of Virgo. Happy Virgo season to the Virgos. 

Late morning (8:54 am C.D.T.) on Wednesday, Uranus stations retrograde. Uranus will be retrograde until 22 January 2023. During its retrograde phase, it will move from 18° Taurus 55′ back to 14° Taurus 56′.

From early afternoon on Wednesday, the Sun moves up toward its upcoming square with Mars. The Sun square Mars aspect will be exact late night on Friday. The aspect should start to wane from late morning on Monday the 29th.

Mid-evening (8:03 pm C.D.T.) on Thursday, Mercury moves from Virgo into Libra. Mercury in Libra is not as effective and powerful as it is in Virgo (where it is both domicile and exalted), but it is usually rather charming. 

From the early hours of Friday, Venus moves up toward its upcoming square with Uranus. The Venus square Uranus aspect is exact late night (11:33 pm C.D.T.) on Friday and will start to wane from mid-evening on Saturday. 

In the very early hours (3:16 am C.D.T.) of Saturday, we have the New Moon in Virgo. New Moons are an excellent time to plant new seeds and intentions for what you wish going forward. This New Moon is receiving a superior square from Mars, though and may lead to some haste and impatience. 

From mid-evening on Saturday, Venus moves up towards its upcoming opposition with retrograde Saturn. The Venus opposition retrograde Saturn aspect is exact early afternoon (1:12 pm C.D.T.) on Sunday and will start to fade out by mid-morning on Monday the 29th. 

All times given are for U.S.A. Central Time (C.D.T.)
