THIS WEEK­END COULD BRING a sum­mer high point. Whether we gather with like minds, rally for a cause, or share a swim and pic­nic, Fri­day’s full moon in com­mu­nal Aquarius high­lights our in­ter­con­nec­tion. This glow­ing, so­cial moon op­poses the sun and Mer­cury shin­ing in Leo, and they loan us the abil­ity to shine and share our­selves. Venus joins the party as she ret­ro­grades in Leo this week­end and ap­proaches her sec­ond of three con­junc­tions to Jupiter this sum­mer, in­creas­ing the flow of all emo­tions.

We just have to re­mem­ber to share the lime­light; the dif­fer­ence be­tween Leo’s gift and its shadow is the abil­ity to re­spect, em­pathize, and share with oth­ers. A sun-Nep­tune quin­cunx over the week­end adds to this imag­i­na­tive panache, but it doesn’t make us re­al­is­tic or proac­tive. The moon en­ters Pisces on Satur­day and Sun­day and soft­ens our hearts.

Let’s prac­tice be­ing fully present for the peo­ple around us this week­end. We tend to fall into old emo­tional pat­terns, but we may be able to make fresh choices that feel more aligned with our pur­pose as Venus squares se­ri­ous Saturn. This softer mo­ment doesn’t last long; be ready to shift gears and take ac­tion on Mon­day and Tues­day as Mer­cury trines Uranus.

Over the next few weeks, mo­men­tum builds in po­lit­i­cal cam­paigns and our own progress as Saturn turns di­rect and squares Jupiter. Our am­bi­tion can be­gin to find its feet again, and af­ter this sum­mer’s break, we can bring a fresher, kin­der mind­set back to our long-term goals.

FRI­DAY, JULY 31: The moon is full this morn­ing, which calls our at­ten­tion to all group dy­nam­ics, pol­i­tics, gos­sip, and our com­mu­nal sense that we are all one. We want to know that no mat­ter how busy our beloveds are, we are spe­cial to them — not a bur­den.

SATUR­DAY, AUG. 1: To­day brings magic, not logic or clar­ity. The morn­ing hums with gen­eros­ity. This af­ter­noon we grow edgier, more easily dis­cour­aged, and in need of sup­port as the mood-defin­ing moon squares re­stric­tive Saturn, and then en­ters sen­si­tive, per­cep­tive Pisces. If a quirky con­cern or fear wrig­gles to the sur­face, get more in­for­ma­tion. We ben­e­fit from mu­tual gen­tle­ness tonight.

SUN­DAY, AUG. 2: Af­ter a soft, dreamy morn­ing, re­spond to a sub­tle op­por­tu­nity to grow per­sonal au­thor­ity. Take notes about new ideas bub­bling up for long-term progress, but don’t ex­pect them to ma­te­ri­al­ize overnight. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion can be dis­jointed mid­day; speak calmly and from the heart. Ac­cept peo­ple’s ex­pressed lim­i­ta­tions and change plans ac­cord­ingly.

MON­DAY, AUG. 3: We may be slow off the mark un­der a sleepy Pisces moon. Mo­men­tum picks up this af­ter­noon as the moon forms a de­ter­mined trine with Mars and Saturn. Kick into gear later as the moon en­ters ac­tive Aries.

TUES­DAY, AUG. 4: Make this day ac­tion-packed and event­ful as the Aries moon trines the sun. Fol­low any lines of op­por­tu­nity to make progress. Re­di­rect tem­per flashes into mu­tual sup­port and sat­is­fy­ing work.

WED­NES­DAY, AUG. 5: Take any green light and run with it as the moon forms an en­er­giz­ing trine with Mer­cury, Venus, and Jupiter. Make changes be­fore the moon en­ters more set­tled Taurus tonight.

THURS­DAY, AUG. 6: Iden­tify the most ur­gent need and at­tend to it. We can make steady, en­dur­ing progress as Mars trines Saturn, but if we sit still, we tend to stay that way. Blend aes­thet­ics with func­tion, and work with love.
