Things aren’t exactly looking up for you during this period, and neither will it be for anyone else. While hardships aren’t something to be romanticized, it is also fair to say that what you will be going through are incredible ways in which you can also learn. Even if the burdens can get too much to bear, there will always be hope for you and the future that you wish to create

Sun opposes Saturn (August 2nd)

Saturn, as the planet that enforces the social quo and order, emphasizes that in order for there to be true peace in our world, people must stick to the rules. Yes, the experience is not for everyone, but the influence this planet holds can be quite enormous, especially if it concerns large groups of people.

On the other hand, the sun represents the human consciousness, the life that we build for ourselves. It represents the authenticity and uniqueness of humans, even in the face of difficulties. When placed in opposition with Saturn, the challenges of having to choose between self and society manifests themselves. Indeed, it asks the question of who or what a person truly loves.

When this transit happens, you need to confront your inner struggle to fit in with others. Set aside your responsibilities for a bit, and evaluate what truly is your purpose for doing certain things. Focus your mind at the present, and weigh what truly matters for you between conformity or individuality.

Sun squares Uranus (August 6th)

As said earlier, the sun represents human life and its uniqueness. Each one of us here on earth has our own quirks and flaws, and all these little things constitute our inherent “one of a kind” persona, no matter who or what we are.

Uranus, for its part, represents change, transformation, and the dynamism of the universe. Nothing is ever permanent, even ourselves. We cannot escape this cycle which makes life even more exciting and precious than we ever anticipated.

However, when these two celestial bodies square off, man’s innate need for change is somewhat held off for some time. Indeed, patience is needed so that the impending transformation can come along gradually. It must not be rushed, and when it is ready to happen, it will happen to each and every one of us.

Weekly Summary per Zodiac Sign

Aries

There will be no shortage of difficulties for you during this period, even more so now that you are getting closer to achieving success. Your strength of character and resolve to win will be tested to its limit, and there is hardly anyone or anything that you can rely on. Know how to play the game so that you will emerge victorious, even during the most difficult of circumstances

Taurus

Working hard is good, but you are very much human, too. Taking care of yourself and your loved ones is equally important, as well as giving other areas of life the attention it needs. Remember that your world is not just made up of your career. Having lots of money is good, but you must also not forget that what truly makes life worth living are the people you are with and the experiences you go through

Gemini

Getting yourself to do things will be very difficult during this time. You may even feel like you are being purposefully blocked by your brain into doing something productive. Do not panic. This is normal, and although there is nothing much you can do about this, you need to take a deep breath and make a list of what you need to do, especially when your mind has been cleared.

Cancer

Feeling frustrated is absolutely normal, especially when you don’t feel like you can get something to work the way that you intended. It might even prompt you to think thoughts of giving up and just opting for the easy way out. However, this shouldn’t be the case. Constantly persist and opt to challenge yourself at every turn. You know what they say: no pain, no gain!

Leo

Although being well-loved is something that you would absolutely like for yourself, you also need to be aware that maintaining good personal and professional relationships is no easy feat. You will need to work with the people you don’t like, and you’ll get into fights with those that you love. This is to say that you need to work closely with others to maintain your good relations, especially with the people whom you value.

Virgo

A sense of hopelessness will engulf you during this period as everything that you are facing might feel too much to handle that you can no longer function as well as you want. While feeling down and questioning the value of what you are doing is important, you must also not forget that being true to yourself and what you want will play a big factor in uplifting you from your situation.

Libra

The inability to feel anything might seem like a joke, but what you are going through will render you jaded that it just might feel like you are no longer capable of emotion. What you need right now is to give yourself rest and reorient your mind and heart, especially now that it’s already getting tough and you need to be in touch with your inner self now more than ever.

Scorpio

Don’t even think of doing anything during this period. Take this time off to give yourself a chance to rest and to help ease the struggles that you have been going through. There is no one else that you can rely on more than yourself, and you need to keep yourself in fighting condition.

Sagittarius

Think things through carefully during this period. Your mind and wits will be your greatest asset, especially that mind games will be your biggest problem because of the people aiming to manipulate their way through you. Be aware of everything, and always choose the option that will result in the good.

Capricorn

Although you love challenges, nothing will prepare you for what you will be experiencing during this period. You need to steel yourself for the hurdles that you will be facing as they will prove themselves to be formidable. Don’t worry, your win is assured, even when it will feel like it’s not.

Aquarius

You are no stranger to trouble, but you must be extra careful during this period. Several people will target and mark you as a bad shot in their books, and you need to avoid them at all costs. Be cautious, and make a conscious effort not to be the cause of the chaos.

Pisces

Awareness of your environment will help you a lot during this period. This will allow you to “read the room” so to speak. Remember that your choices have consequences, even more so during this time. Always choose the smartest one of the book- and those that you won’t end up regretting towards the end.
