Tuesday – August 1, 2023 – Mars in Virgo rules the day
At 06:57:47 the Moon enters Aquarius (Romanian local time)
At 21:31:00 we have Full Moon in Aquarius (Romanian local time) : The Full Moon is when the Moon is in opposition to the Sun, and the Moon is in the sign of Aquarius in the 12th house. Aquarius brings a sense of independence and a desire to explore new ideas and concepts, while the 12th house is associated with introspection and freedom from the past. Thus, the Full Moon in Aquarius in the 12th house suggests that it’s time to free yourself from thoughts and emotions that keep you anchored in the past and explore new and liberating ideas.
The Sun is in the sign of Leo and is in the 6th house. The sign of Leo is full of passion and creativity, while the 6th house is associated with work and health. So, the Sun in Leo in the 6th house urges you to use your passion and creativity in your daily work and pay special attention to your health.
The Moon and Sun form a T-square with Jupiter in Taurus in the 3rd house and suggest that you may need to overcome some communication obstacles or adapt to new and surprising information. You may face sudden changes in your daily routine or the way you manage your resources.
This astral combination brings a fascinating mix of release from the past, passion, creativity and unexpected changes. It’s a good time to explore new ideas and bring your passion into your work and health, but remember to be flexible and open to changes that may come your way. Stubbornness without a stake brings you roadblocks rather than opportunities.

Wednesday – August 2, 2023 – Day ruled by Mercury in Virgo
Until October 5 MERCURY transits the sign of VIRGO and will go through a retrograde cycle. It’s important to understand that the impact of this cycle is happening as soon as Mercury enters Virgo. In this #astrovlog I talk about this transit: https://youtu.be/XRJb-IKjtlc
Mercury entered Virgo on July 29 at 00:31:12,
Between July 29 and August 22 Mercury in Virgo is in direct motion,
Between August 22 and 24, Mercury in Virgo is in retrograde station,
Between August 24 and September 14 Mercury in Virgo is in retrograde motion,
Between 14 and 16 September Mercury in Virgo is in direct station
Between September 16 and October 5 Mercury in Virgo is in direct motion,
On October 5 at 03:08:34 Mercury enters Libra and thus ends this cycle of Mercury retrograde in Virgo.
Thursday – August 3, 2023 – Jupiter in Taurus rules the day
At 06:05:26 the Moon enters Pisces (Romanian local time)
The Moon in Pisces forms an applying conjunction with Saturn in the 8th house and both form an applying opposition with Mercury in Virgo in the 2nd house. The sign of Pisces is full of imagination and sensitivity, and the 8th house is associated with mystery and deep transformation but it is also a house of finance and intimacy. Therefore, the Moon in Pisces in the 8th house invites us to explore emotional depths and open ourselves to inner transformation.
But here comes an interesting twist in the story! The Moon in Pisces forms an applicable conjunction with Saturn. it’s a harmonious aspect that brings a fusion of energies. In this case, the intuitive and sensitive energy of the Moon joins the steady and disciplined force of Saturn. This combination suggests that the time is right to strengthen your emotions and take responsibility for personal transformation. Some would say depression hits you, which is not always the case.
But it doesn’t stop there! Both the Moon and Saturn form an enforcing opposition to Mercury in Virgo, which is in the 2nd house. The opposition is a tense aspect that brings a conflict of energies. In this case, the intuitive and disciplined energy of Moon and Saturn conflicts with the analytical and organized energy of Mercury in Virgo. This opposition suggests the possibility of a conflict between the desire to explore inner depths and the need to remain rational and organized in managing material resources.
So the Moon in Pisces in the 8th house invites us to explore our emotional side and open ourselves to inner transformation, while the conjunction with Saturn encourages us to be stable and responsible in the process. However, the opposition of Moon and Saturn to Mercury in Virgo can bring a conflict between the emotional and rational sides, between deep exploration and pragmatic resource management.
This astral combination invites us to venture into our inner depths, to transform ourselves and to be responsible in the process. However, we need to be aware of possible conflicts between the emotional and rational sides. It is a good time to explore and connect with our emotions, but let’s not forget to find a balance between intuition and reason, between exploration and practical management of our resources.
Friday – August 4, 2023 – Venus in retrograde Leo rules the day
Until August 9 we have an applicable square aspect between Venus in retrograde and Uranus in Taurus. Venus borrows from Leo’s courage, helping Uranus to better understand creativity, and Uranus gives Venus an unconventional perspective on love and beauty, opening her heart to connections and relationships that are different from the traditional. Let’s see what love and/or financial scandals are on the horizon.
Saturday – August 5, 2023 – The day is ruled by Saturn retrograde in Pisces.
At 06:19:17 the Moon enters Aries (Romanian local time)
At the time of the Moon’s entry into Aries no aspect is formed with any major planets or points in the chart and the house activated is the 9th house but its influence is short-lived, about two days, so the effects are not long-lasting but can still have a noticeable impact. So we may experience:
Dynamic energy and impulsiveness: the Moon in Aries is energetic, dynamic and can bring a strong desire to act, make changes and take initiative. You may feel an increased need for freedom and adventure.
Adventurous spirit and openness to new experiences: the 9th house represents travel, higher study, philosophy and exploration of different cultures. The Moon in Aries can spark an interest in foreign adventures or studying new subjects.
Need for independence and self-expression: This transit can stimulate a desire to be independent and express one’s unique identity in stronger and more visible ways.
Emotional impulsiveness: the Moon in Aries can provoke quick and impulsive emotional reactions. You are mildly irritated, but these emotions quickly pass and are forgotten.
Openness to new perspectives and knowledge: the 9th house is associated with higher learning and spiritual development. This transit may bring a desire to explore new perspectives and engage in the pursuit of wisdom and knowledge.
Courage and risk-taking: the Moon in Aries can enhance courage and self-confidence, urging acceptance in new challenges and taking calculated risks.
Sunday – August 6, 2023 – Day ruled by the Sun in Leo
As early as July 30, we have an applicable square aspect between the Sun in Leo and Jupiter in Taurus and it can amplify the desire to explore and experience new things. People are drawn to sensory pleasures and tactile experiences, such as enjoying delicious food or connecting with nature.
However, it is important to maintain balance and avoid excess during this transit. While optimism is welcome, it is important not to underestimate obstacles or take unwise risks. Rational thinking is crucial to truly harness the potential of this issue. I hope you know that the real changes in life don’t happen on beneficial aspects but on those that put us in a position to do something with our lives. I am referring to quadratures, oppositions and some conjunctions. When we are doing well we usually don’t want to change anything. How is it for you?
Monday – August 7, 2023 – The day is ruled by the Moon in Aries
At 09:24:27 the Moon enters Taurus in exaltation (Romanian local time)
At the time of the Moon’s entry into Taurus it forms no aspect to any planets or major points in the chart and the house activated is the same 9th house.
Being unaspected with other planets or major points in the chart, the Moon’s influence in Taurus can be more subtle and less visible in one’s behavior and personality. However, the lunar energy in this position is still present and can have a profound impact on how a person approaches the spiritual journey and learning in life.
The ninth house, where the Moon is in Taurus, is the home of higher teachings, philosophy, travel and wisdom. This place in the chart represents the desire to explore deeper aspects of knowledge and to seek meaning and significance in the world around us. Because the Moon is associated with emotions and intuition, its placement in the ninth house may signify an emotional approach to the search for wisdom and truth.
We can find peace and connection with the universe through walks in nature or working with plants and making things with our own hands. We may be drawn to traditions or spiritual practices that offer security and stability.
It takes a conscious effort to explore philosophical and spiritual aspects more deeply.
Tuesday – August 8, 2023 – Mars in Virgo rules the day
On August 8 at 13:28:00 (Romanian local time) we have the Third Quarter, with the Moon in Taurus in the 7th house and the Sun in Leo in the 10th house: the beauty and sensuality inspired by the sign of Taurus finds refuge in the 7th house, the house associated with partnerships and relationships. The Moon in Taurus brings an energy of stability, patience and a desire to enjoy life’s pleasures in the relational sphere.
On the other hand, the Sun in Leo, shining in the 10th house, brings with it a strong sense of self-confidence, passion and a desire to shine in the professional sphere. Leo is regal and charismatic, and the 10th house is associated with career and social status.
Only the aspect formed between the Moon and Sun is tense and perhaps challenging. It is as if the Moon and Sun are dancing in a passionate duel, where each forcefully expresses its own characteristics.
The Moon in Taurus in the 7th house teaches us that our relationships require stability, patience and the joy of connecting with our partner’s pleasures and needs. This is a good time to build strong relationships based on trust and harmony.
At the same time, the Sun in Leo in the 10th house reminds us to connect with our passion and express our authenticity in our careers. It’s a good time to shine in what we do and take on leadership roles.
That’s why there’s a need for balance between relationships and career. Tensions or difficult choices may arise between our commitment to partners of any kind and our professional aspirations.
MARS transits the sign of VIRGO until August 27: This transit can influence the way we act and manifest ourselves, and bring some motivation to solve concrete problems.
Virgo is a sign associated with analysis, perfectionism and meticulousness. The energy of Mars in Virgo indicates a tendency to be disciplined, organized and focused on the small details. This position suggests that you can take a methodical, problem-solving approach to the subconscious and hidden aspects of your life.
Wednesday – August 9, 2023 – The day is ruled by Mercury in Virgo
At 4:05:01 pm (Romanian local time) the Moon enters Gemini in the 7th house and forms an enforcing square with Saturn in Pisces in the 4th house: embodying the curious and playful spirit of Gemini, the Moon in Gemini in the 7th house urges us to explore the realm of relationships and partnerships. It’s an invitation to connect with others through communication, adaptability and openness to new ideas and perspectives. But Saturn appears in the story, a character who brings a more serious and responsible vibe. In the sign of Pisces and in the 4th house, Saturn reminds us of the need for stability, connection to our emotional roots and building a solid foundation in our lives.
However, the dance between the Moon in Gemini and Saturn in Pisces is a square, a tense aspect. This enforcing square suggests a challenge or conflict between the communicative and adaptive energy of the Moon and the disciplined and restrictive energy of Saturn.
So in this story, the Moon in Gemini in the 7th house encourages us to be open in relationships and to express our ideas and thoughts with ease. However, squaring Saturn in Pisces in the 4th house brings us to a dilemma. We may encounter obstacles in communication and feel restricted in our emotional expression. The need for stability and building a home may conflict with our impulse to explore and connect with the world around us.
That’s why it’s important to be aware of this challenge and to seek a balance between communication and stability, between adaptability and building solid emotional stability. By understanding and accepting these seemingly contrasting energies, we can navigate wisely through this cosmic dance and develop authentic and deep relationships despite the challenges we face.
Thursday – August 10, 2023 – Jupiter in Taurus rules the day
Today we have an applying trine between Mercury in Virgo and Jupiter in Taurus – communication and understanding are favoured, and the desire to explore knowledge and develop intellectually may be stronger. But let’s not forget to be pragmatic, communicate clearly and it would be good to have a concrete goal too, not to stick to the match theory.
Friday – August 11, 2023 – Venus retrograde in Leo rules the day
By August 13 we have the conjunction of the Sun and Venus retrograde in Leo, both in square aspect to Uranus in Taurus – relationships may be put to the test, and old patterns of behavior and values may be challenged. We may feel the need to break free of imposed boundaries and seek a more authentic expression of our self.
Creativity can be sparked by this, encouraging us to explore unconventional and original sides of our talents. However, it is important to be aware that this combination of energies can be tumultuous, and changes can come suddenly and without warning.
This conjunction of retrograde Sun and Venus in square to Uranus can be a challenging time, but also full of potential for growth and release. It is important to be open and flexible to change and to listen to our intuition about the decisions we make during this period.
Saturday – August 12, 2023 – Saturn retrograde in Pisces rules the day
At 01:52:02 (Romanian local time) Moon ingress Cancer (in domicile) in the 2nd house and forms an applying trine with Saturn in Pisces in the 10th house, both houses being vocational houses.
The Moon, the reflector of emotions and intuition, is in the sensitive sign of Cancer and settles in the 2nd house, also known as the House of Resources and Material Values.
Imagine a gentle light streaming through the sky window and descending upon your 2nd house. This is the energy of the Moon in Cancer, a warm and protective energy that connects you with your emotional needs and material resources.
The Moon in Cancer in the 2nd house urges us to connect with our own value and pay attention to our needs for security and comfort. It is an invitation to listen to our intuition and to give importance to our emotions in managing our material resources.
However, Saturn in Pisces comes into the picture as a sage in the 10th house, associated with career and social status. Saturn brings us a vibe of responsibility and discipline in the professional realm and urges us to connect with our spiritual side in achieving success and fulfilment.
The applying trine between the Moon in Cancer and Saturn in Pisces is like a harmonious dance between emotions and discipline. This harmony helps us find a balance between our inner needs and our professional aspirations.
Thus, in this story, the Moon in Cancer in the 2nd house encourages us to connect with our emotions and use them as a guide in managing our material resources. Saturn in Pisces in the 10th house reminds us to be disciplined and responsible in our careers, but also to connect with our spiritual side in the process of professional fulfilment.
This harmonious connection between emotions and discipline can bring us great satisfaction and success in our vocational lives. By managing our material resources in line with our emotional needs and by combining our career with our spiritual side, we can experience true fulfilment and balance in life.
Sunday – August 13, 2023 – Day ruled by the Sun in Leo
The Lunar Nodes entered on July 17, 2023 at 22:59:36 Romania time on the Aries – Libra axis and manifest their influence until January 12, 2025 at 01:01:30. (Romanian local time). You have here an #astrovlog about the general impact of this transit but also the impact on each Ascendant: https://youtu.be/8YouZwANSlE
Monday – August 14, 2023 – The day is ruled by the Moon in Cancer and Leo
At 13:36:11 (Romanian local time) Moon ingress Leo and transits the 10th house therefore we may feel an increase in our motivation and ambition in terms of career and professional goals. We focus on success and how we can establish ourselves in a positive way in the professional world.
This astral combination can bring a favorable time to highlight our abilities and focus on achieving our professional goals. We can be more assertive in our communication and present our ideas and contributions with confidence, especially since this house also has the Sun and Venus retrograde.
However, we need to be wary of the possibility of being too domineering or too self-centered in our approach. The Moon in Leo may bring a higher level of desire for attention and recognition, which could affect how we interact with colleagues and bosses.
It is important to use our creativity and passion constructively, rather than trying to get attention at any cost. Instead, we can work to make valuable contributions to our projects and gain recognition on merit.
On the other hand, this entry of the 10th house Moon in transit through the sign of Leo can bring opportunities to draw attention to our accomplishments and receive appreciation from others for our efforts. It’s a good time to ask for a promotion or to start new projects to help us achieve our professional goals.
Tuesday – August 15, 2023 – Mars in Virgo rules the day
Mars forms an applying conjunction with Mercury in Virgo, an opposition to retrograde Neptune in Pisces and a trine to Uranus in Taurus. We may feel a strong desire to act and focus on our goals, but we need to be careful of the possibility of being swept away by the tide of illusion or being swayed by strong emotions. But we can be inspired artistically.
The trine to Uranus in Taurus can provide opportunities to break free of conventional boundaries and explore new ways and methods of achieving our goals. However, the opposition to retrograde Neptune in Pisces can draw us into the world of dreams and illusions, so it’s important to be grounded and base our decisions on careful and rational analysis. Careful management of our energy and resources is needed to ensure that we steer our actions in constructive and healthy directions. It is a good time to explore new ideas and approaches, but also to be wary of challenges and temptations brought on by illusions or misguided impulses. With a balanced and rational approach, we can use the potential of this astral configuration to develop and fulfill our personal and professional goals.
Wednesday – August 16, 2023 – Day ruled by Mercury in Virgo
At 12:38:00 (Romanian local time) we have the New Moon phase in Leo activating the tenth house and the North Node in Aries activating the sixth house, and so the vocational houses are put to work.
You have the courage to assert your authority, to shine in front of the world and reach your full potential. The tenth house, the place where the New Moon is fiercely manifesting, represents your position in the social hierarchy, your status and your path to success. Now, under the influence of this New Moon, you have the opportunity to amplify your personal brilliance and conquer the world.
The North Node in Aries gives you an extra stake – it’s like a cosmic beacon pointing you in the direction that’s best for you in the sphere of work. Day-to-day tasks and obligations take on a new understanding, and you feel your pulse quicken, igniting inner flames of passion and determination.
This combination of the New Moon in Leo and the North Node in Aries is like a fusion of a fiery artist and a brave warrior. During this time, you are called to bring out your creativity and explore your most authentic side. You need to act with courage and determination, take risks and commit to projects that bring you personal satisfaction and professional fulfilment.
You can feel the flames of your passion expanding, setting in motion substantial changes in your career. You may get opportunities to take on leadership roles, set up your own business or shine in your field of expertise. At the same time, this fiery energy can help you showcase your skills and build a strong and recognizable reputation in your professional community.
With Venus also retrograde in Leo, you have the opportunity to explore and reassess your relationship with your career and how people around you perceive you. Venus retrograde is asking you to turn your mind back to your authentic values and passions and remember what makes you shine in the professional sphere.
It can be a time for introspection and rethinking your career direction. You need to ask yourself if you are truly in tune with the path you are following and if your actions are in line with your authentic values.
There may be an opportunity to explore your hidden passions, broaden your creative horizons or bring a touch of beauty and balance to your professional environment.
At the same time a square is forming between the New Moon phase in Leo with Uranus in Taurus in the 7th house, so a conflict may arise between your need to follow your own path and your need for stability and harmony in relationships. The New Moon in Leo empowers you to assert yourself and passionately dedicate yourself to your career, but Uranus in Taurus brings a call to open yourself to change and free yourself from conventional constraints.
This cosmic aspect challenges us to reevaluate our relationships and be open to new and unexpected ideas. A surprise partnership or a sudden change in an existing relationship may occur. You may feel a tension between the desire for independence and the need for stability in your personal and professional life.
This quadrature should not be seen as a threat, but as a cosmic invitation to be open to change and to free yourself from constraints that no longer serve you in your personal and professional development. It’s important to be flexible and explore new ways to manifest your passions and skills in the professional sphere and bring innovation and authenticity to your relationships.
Thursday – August 17, 2023 – Jupiter in Taurus rules the day
At 02:14:11 the Moon ingress Virgo (Romanian local time): Lunar, whenever the Moon transits Virgo it creates an opposition to Saturn in Pisces, and today it creates this opposition aspect on the 3rd-9th house axis and challenges us to find the balance between reason and intuition, between analysis and deep understanding. We feel the need to find the truth and be pragmatic in communication, but also to connect with the more subtle and deeper aspects of life.
It can be a time of self-discovery and reconciliation of our inner polarities. We are called to confront our fears and seek clarity in what prevents us from expressing ourselves. It is an opportunity to learn to be open to understanding and deeper connections with others and the world around us.
Friday – August 18, 2023 – Venus retrograde in Leo rules the day
The transiting square between Venus retrograde in Leo and Jupiter in Taurus brings a combination of tense energies between the two planets, which can affect relationships, personal values and the desire for expansion and prosperity.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty and values, is retrograde in Leo. In this position, Venusian energy can become more introspective and we can focus more on reflection and reevaluation of what we value and seek in relationships and life.
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, confidence and good fortune, is in the sign of Taurus, where it brings a confident, pragmatic and grounded energy that is also eager for pleasure. However, when it comes into square with Venus retrograde in Leo, tensions can arise between Jupiter’s desire for expansion and exuberance and Venus retrograde’s deep, more reserved reflection.
This astral combination can cause misunderstandings or difficulties in relationships and how we communicate our values. We may feel a need to reevaluate our relationships and personal values, which could lead to frustration or confusion in our interactions with others.
This astral combination can cause misunderstandings or difficulties in relationships and in the way we communicate our values. We may feel a need to reevaluate our relationships and personal values, which could lead to frustration or confusion in our interactions with others.
To successfully navigate through this quadrature, it is important to be aware of both energies and to find a balance between expansion and exploration of the outer world and introspection and reflection on the inner world. It is a good time to get to know our needs and desires better and to communicate openly and honestly with those around us about what we are feeling and seeking in relationships and in life.

At 02:22:10 (Romanian local time) Moon enters Scorpio (falling)
We have Mars in Virgo in opposition to Neptune retrograde in Pisces and in royal trine to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus, and it can bring a complex combination of energies, with the potential for both tension and confusion (due to the opposition to Neptune retrograde in Pisces) and profound efficiency and change (due to the trine to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus). It’s important to be wary of the tendency to get lost in dreams or illusions and to focus concretely on our goals. It’s also a good time to use our energy and determination to make important changes in our lives, but also to be open to unconventional and creative approaches to managing everyday challenges.

JUPITER transits the sign of TAURUS between now and May 26, 2024 and here’s an #astrovlog about the significance of this transit and its impact for each ascendant: https://youtu.be/k1miUVrbdKE
This month Jupiter is in direct transit.
At 03:23:57 Moon ingress Sagittarius (Romanian local time)
At 12:58:00 we have First Quarter in Sagittarius – on this occasion a T-square is also formed between the Moon in Sagittarius, the Sun in Virgo and retrograde Saturn in Pisces. This “T-square” challenges us to find a balance between our duty to be efficient and responsible and our desire to live authentically and enjoy adventure and expansion.
The Sun in opposition to Saturn challenges us to find balance between our need to express our individuality and our responsibilities to others and to ourselves. We are required to be rigorous and disciplined in assuming duty and honoring our commitments, but also to find ways to express our authenticity and passion in all that we do.
At the same time, the Moon in Sagittarius in square to the Sun and Saturn challenges us to be open to exploring the world and searching for truth. We feel the need for freedom and adventure, to connect with broader perspectives and learn through direct experience.
We are invited to find a balance between our responsibility and duty and our passion and authenticity. It is a journey of self-discovery and reconciliation of our inner polarities, where we can discover that by deeply understanding the balance between reason and intuition, order and adventure, we can live fulfilling lives.
Between August 24 and 28 we have the Sun in Virgo and Saturn retrograde in Pisces, we have two opposite zodiac signs, which means that their energies collide. This aspect can have the following characteristics and effects:
Confrontation with responsibilities: The opposition of the Sun and Saturn can bring to the surface issues of taking on personal responsibilities and debts. You could feel internal or external pressure to grow up and deal seriously with the tasks and commitments in your life.
Self-evaluation and self-criticism: Virgo’s energy, which rules the Sun, is geared toward perfectionism and critical self-evaluation. The opposition to Saturn in Pisces, which tends to amplify self-criticism, can bring up feelings of insecurity or unfulfillment.
Curbs or restrictions: Saturn can bring limits and restrictions in the way of the Sun’s personal goals and desires in Virgo. This aspect may require you to be more patient and put more effort into achieving your goals.
Awareness of past lessons: Being retrograde, Saturn can bring unresolved lessons from the past to the forefront. You may be faced with situations or challenges that urge you to take responsibility for past choices and learn from mistakes.
The need for balance between pragmatism and sensitivity: Virgo and Pisces are opposite signs with different approaches to life. Virgo is practical and analytical, while Pisces is sensitive and intuitive. This may require finding a balance between being rational and being open to intuition and empathy.
Friday – August 25, 2023 – Venus retrograde in Leo rules the day
VENUS transits the sign of LEO until October 9 also going through a retrograde.
In this #astrovlog I am talking about retrograde cycle of Venus in Leo and impact for each Ascendant: https://youtu.be/qpk0btYkFX4
Here are the stages of this retrograde cycle for Venus in Leo are (Romanian local time):
Venus has already entered Leo on June 5, 2023 at 16:46:28.
Direct motion – best time to act, especially if the planet is in domicile or exaltation. If the MOON is also rising it is even better.
Venus in retrograde station in Leo on July 22, 2023 at 04:32:46
Retrograde station – not a good time to take action, don’t start any major activity in any field.
Venus in retrograde motion in Leo on July 24, 2023 at 04:32:46
Retrograde movement – don’t initiate new actions, just rethink, rectify, repair what didn’t exactly go well in the past, it’s a good time to replan and change strategies.
Venus in direct station in Leo on September 3, 2023 at 04:20:04
Direct station – you’re warming up to the actions you’ll be taking during the direct motion period, so a brief recap of what you want to do wouldn’t hurt. If the MOON is rising too it’s even better.
Venus in direct motion in Leo on September 5, 2023 at 04:20:04
Venus enters Virgo on October 9, 2022 at 04:10:41 , from this point the Venus retrograde cycle in Leo ends.

During this period, relationships undergo a passionate revival, and conflicts may arise in efforts to balance personal needs with those of others. Mars in Libra brings a challenging and decisive energy, encouraging individuals to firmly express their desires and set healthy boundaries in their relationships.
This transit offers a unique opportunity to bring passion and justice into balance, to turn conflicts into opportunities for growth and mutual understanding. It is a time when we can learn to take risks in love and actively support our life partners and friendships in the pursuit of genuine harmony.
Between September 21 and October 4, Mars in Libra forms an applying conjunction to the South Node and an applying opposition to the North Node.
When Mars conjuncts the South Node in Libra, hot and passionate Martian energy combines with the karmic energies of our past, related to relationships, harmony and balance. This transit brings to the forefront our desires and how we relate to others in terms of relationships and justice.
The conjunction with the South Node challenges us to look into our past and evaluate how we have manifested our desires and passions in our past relationships. It can be a time to reflect on how we handled conflict and balance in our partnerships and how we can integrate these lessons into the present.
At the same time, Mars’ opposition to the North Node in Aries adds extra tension to this transit. Bold and powerful Martian energy opposes the karmic direction we need to move in to evolve. This opposition can cause friction and conflict between our need for independence and our desire to build harmonious and balanced relationships.
This astral configuration challenges us to consciously integrate Martian energy in constructive ways and find ways to take risks in a balanced and responsible way. It is an opportunity to learn to affirm our personal desires and needs in a way that respects and supports the needs of others.

In this #astrovlog explain what situations you are put in until April 2026: https://youtu.be/1wky51I8pzE
From August 28, 2023 to January 28, 2024 Uranus in Taurus is retrograde and we are called to open our minds and hearts to unexplored possibilities. Wild and brilliant ideas glow in our consciousness, and the desire to escape conventional constraints grows in intensity. In the midst of chaos, we find that freedom lies in transformation and the ability to embrace change as part of our evolution.
This retrograde journey requires us to confront our own fears and free ourselves from self-imposed limitations. In cosmic chaos, we find the opportunity to discover our true essence and make revolutionary changes in our lives.
Uranus in retrograde Taurus reminds us that our core values and inner stability can be transformed through adaptability and openness to newness. In the midst of this cosmic vortex, we learn to appreciate the beauty of diversity and seek innovative ways to express our authenticity and originality.
