The planets take us from a lull into overdrive. And we can look to strident Mars and shocking Uranus for that.

Mars kicks off the week with having a conniption fit with Uranus by square on Monday. That’s fine for getting somebody’s party somewhere started right and quickly. But, like all things Martian, if there’s no outlet to get stuff done, Mars does one of two things. He either craters and we experience this as a frustration that crowns us with a depression. Or we rush headlong into something half-cocked that blossoms into a full mess. If there’s been something you’ve been putting off, then tap into the power of this Mars-Uranus aspect to turn things up or on. You’ve probably thought about the task well enough.

Then Mars speeds into Leo on the 20th. I’ve noticed that Mars in Leo often correlates to someone’s need for speed. Mars was in this sign when Chuck Yeager operated the first vehicle to break the sound barrier on Oct. 14, 1947. Mars doesn’t gain too many extra comforts or power in Leo. But when he’s in the Sun’s sign, Leo, he feels emboldened and more confident. There’s a sense of trust and control that he didn’t feel when he was in Cancer, the sign before.

The Sun also wants to get in on some of that Uranus action on the 20th. That’s bound to boost the weekend into the fun zone. But it might also be hard to keep up with sudden changes or how folks might be a little too hype.

But then the Sun enters his majestic home in Leo on 22nd. That might tone down things more than you’d think. When the Sun’s home, there’s not as much pressure to be other than who you are. Some folks might feel too much like themselves, in fact.

The weekend’s Leo moon adds a boom to the first of two supersonic New moons during Leo season. But this is just the warm-up. The second one, of course, will be “The Great American Eclipse” on August 21st. Hang on tight!

*I also can’t think of the word “supersonic” without this vintage earworm. I just had to share.

Read on for the SkyCodes for your particular moon, ascendant, Sun or key planet of your chart.

 

CANCER
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Moon in birth chart

We astrologers love to talk about the comfort loving aspect of your sign. But you’re quick to move out of comfort…when you’re uncomfortable. Or when someone you care for is in discomfort. You also will speedily shift when you perceive there’s more comfort to have elsewhere. You’re having one of those moments. You might shock yourself and others with how fast you move. Don’t fight that speed. Or apologize for it. You’re not the one to play with when the stakes are clear. And now they are.

Affirmation:
I give myself permission to move fast or hard when my comfort (or another’s) is at stake.

LEO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Sun in birth chart

The surge of energy and power you feel is real. You might not even know what to do with yourself. So, dig out your resolutions and goals from January and look at those. A good many of those were BS anyway. But there’s a least a few of them that you finally can do something about. And you don’t start with the easiest one. Keep the pressure on and don’t go for any knockout punches. You’ll just wear yourself out. Short concentrated bursts of activity will keep you interested and feeling easy-breezy confident.

Affirmation:
I have the energy and readiness for the goals and resolutions that matter to me.

VIRGO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

“Fortune favors the bold.” I know you’d like to “Well, actually” me and say that it favors the most adaptable and knowledgeable. But that still means you must have some moxie. Don’t try to rationalize the fear. You will have jump start your daring to leap over the 1001 reasons why you shouldn’t do something. Something that you know you should. Make that first step a bold one. You will likely feel even more emboldened. Then take the next step. Keep doing that and you’ll make more progress than you had dared to dream.

Affirmation:
I boldly step forward with a burning desire.

LIBRA
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Your impatience could get the best of you this week. You’ll do better to have more patience with people than projects. But since projects are usually connected to people, it might be hard to keep the two distinct. Perhaps you can be more discerning when you choose to work alone or with others. But remember that certain people also make an achievement worth the hassle. Maybe it’s time to assess if you’re working with the right people if you can’t find the tolerance to do what must be done.

Affirmation:
I am with the right people for the missions I want to fulfill.

SCORPIO
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

Chess master Josh Waitzkin’s book, The Art of Learning, uses the phrase, “daily architecture,” to outline how particular habits and routines can raise our overall peak potential. What’s beautiful about the phrase is that it shows how we build “cathedrals” of meaning in our lives daily. We shouldn’t expect to build captivating lives if we only trudge through mediocre or aimless days. Surprisingly, though, the key foundation for building a better life daily isn’t about doing what we must do in the external world. Waitzkin says to start your daily architecture from within first. Listen to your own “internal music” through writing or meditation before you bombard yourself with external noise. Then from there, think about your day as architect would, structuring the life you want, one day at a time.

Affirmation:
I create a beautiful life by living from the inside out, one moment at a time.

SAGITTARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Baggage saddles us with the confidence of the familiar to journey into the unfamiliar. Of course, we become wiser from knowing what familiar things to take. Tap into that wisdom because you’re ramping up to venture out, even if you never leave your city. Perhaps you’ve been burdened with too much emotion, particularly anger, about a situation that’s out of your control. You’ve tried to fix it. But it might be time to admit, you can’t. This is not defeat. It’s a chance to lighten your load, salvage what you can and set your sights on other shores to fulfill more of your destiny.

Affirmation:
I wisely choose what baggage to carry on to unfamiliar areas of my awareness or the world.

CAPRICORN
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

For some strange reason, too many folks picture you in only traditional or conservative ways. They probably won’t have the luxury of that this week. You might even surprise yourself. You break from the herd to lead them. Or to pave a new path for yourself. This isn’t always easy, though. Perhaps you even have your own doubts on whether you’re doing the right thing. Yet, what could you really do differently? How can you be other than who you need to be at this moment? Embrace the change and you’ll be move along faster, maybe even with less noise and fuss from others.

Affirmation:
I embrace my need for new openings and endeavors, whether others follow or not.

AQUARIUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Saturn in birth chart

Told you things would pick up! Slow your mind even as your heart races. It will help you stay grounded and focused. Honor the excitement. But don’t let emotion take you too far off your square. One way this might happen is by having the need to say or explain a lot. Perhaps it would be better to let your actions speak louder than your words. When you do have to explain anything, then assume nothing. Start simple and at the beginning. You might be too comfortable at your warp speed to see how fast you’re in motion.

Affirmation:
I move at the speed of light (or just fast) with a mind illuminated by light.

PISCES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Jupiter in birth chart

Watch how you spend energy, money, and other resources. There’s a difference between making an investment and taking a gamble. An investment is the “child” of a cheerier marriage between research and solid principles in a land where Chance reigns nearly supreme. But a gamble is born from hope hooking up with skill to get one over on Chance. Clearly, you want to think more about making investments now. Chance catches up with the gambler, eventually. Think more long term than what makes a fast buck or gratifies you instantly.

Affirmation:
I invest wisely with my energy, money and resources, not gamble with them

ARIES
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mars in birth chart

You’re not inclined to follow anyone’s rules or standards now. This might cause some trouble with more old-fashioned people or settings. But perhaps you can find a way to honor your originality without breaking ALL the rules. Compromise isn’t one of your favorite words. Yet, you should only completely break away if you have the resources and readiness to do it. If you don’t, then stick to your guns without throwing powder kegs too. You will find a way with a little creativity and patience.

Affirmation:
I use creativity and patience break the rules that need to be broken, without breaking ALL the rules.

TAURUS
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Venus in birth chart

Perhaps it’ll be hard to stay cool and levelheaded now. You might even feel like you’ve done enough of that. And maybe you’re right. So, now it’s a matter how you let off some steam. You don’t have to unleash a torrent of words when one line probably packs enough punch. Work to be as concise and direct as possible. This also goes for moving around, too. There’s a lot you want to see and do. But as the weekend approaches, you probably just need to relax more.

Affirmation:
I am purposeful enough with my words and movements to handle whatever jumps off.

GEMINI
Moon, ascendant, Sun or strong Mercury in birth chart

You probably will have more trouble connecting with strangers and friends alike at the top of the week. Folks might get on your last nerve without you fully understanding why. But before you have a chance to unpack what’s going on within or with them, you’ll likely ease into a rapport that’ll make you forget all the earlier wonkiness. So, don’t become too bent out of shape when you’re out of step with someone, especially a friend. Your emotions might run hotter than the issue deserves.

Affirmation:
I let discord run its course rather than fret about it or with others.
