Instability, Volatility, and Uncertainty: Astrology Forecast August 22nd – 28th

August 22nd, 2022

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

This is a week of multiple shifts: Mars has just entered Gemini for a 7 month stay; the Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd; Uranus stations all weeks at his most volatile to turn retrograde on August 24th for 5 months in Taurus; Mercury enters Libra and there’s a practical New Moon at 4 Virgo on August 27th.

You will feel a definite elemental change on Monday when the Sun exits fiery Leo for Earth sign Virgo and Mercury trines Pluto and Mars. Virgo invites you into the mysteries of body and soul. Your unique ecology is your energy signature, the magnetic Field that surrounds you, that you live from, draw on and co-create with: your breath, your physicality, your food, your creativity, your health, your heart, your frequency. For it to flow, for you to thrive, not just survive, you need to clear the river.

Uranus Retrograde until January 22, 2023 is another signal for change. The revolution goes into reverse so there will be unfinished financial business. If you have factors around or aspecting 18° Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and/or Aquarius this is a major challenge to change; to unfix the fixed. If you did not do it before, you will have to do it now. Take extra care of yourself, your physical body and your emotions because you’re processing energy work internally in ways and at levels you have never previously experienced.

The Great Awakener conjunct the Node of Fate in Taurus is all about karma- the past coming back to be settled. Old debts and credits, sometimes quite literally, certainly spiritually, need to be paid or accepted. Uranus is transpersonal energy that sits deep within your psyche, waiting to burst out and create sudden powerful change:

Think of it as a thunderbolt, smashing your comfortable reality and waking you up to new possibilities along with the desire for rebellion, novelty, the unconventional rules you once accepted easily begin to feel like an affront to your individuality even if you’re unsure what comes next, to go against the grain and re-imagine your goals expect the collective to experience large-scale changes and unique phenomena.
