August 26-September 1st

Who doesn’t want both feet on the ground now? After a summer of eclipses, retrogrades, and more, this week continues to help us grow some roots in the ground.

Up first is Monday’s Venus in Virgo trine to Uranus in Taurus which opens up our minds on romance. So many of our relational outcomes are accidentally determined by the ideas, values, and stories we tell ourself on love. Monday’s trine can help us clear, edit, and review the stories to make sure they’re more accommodating for love. 

Then on Wednesday, Mars - which is currently in Virgo - will trine to Uranus in Taurus too which shakes up our views on intimacy and conflict transformation. Could we use more clearing and edit there? Absolutely!
