Keep your eye on Mars in conjunction with Uranus and the karmic Node of Fate at 18 degrees Taurus on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd August 2022, as they move like lightning, then wildfire. Venus is at 18° Cancer, the sign ruling property, on Tuesday 2nd August and the North Node at 18° Taurus and South Node at 18° Scorpio on the same days, make the start of August absolutely explosive
This triple conjunction -which last happened in 342 BC – will be squared by Lord of Time and Karma Saturn in Aquarius until early 2023. This is a volatile combination. No one will be exempt from the fallout, as we experience the reality check of collective hubris – the end of unlimited resources. It is a global wakeup call that we can’t afford to ignore.
Uranus is unexpected shocks; Mars is explosive force; the North Node is a destabilising need for expansion; and Taurus, the fixed Earth sign ruled by Venus, is reality. Expect your physical space — whether money, body or home — to experience unexpected shifts.
Events will occur suddenly and may involve multiple and unexpected ON/OFF states — power goes off/on/off/on, money flow is suddenly stopped but then resumes, currency value abruptly drops then sharply rises, flights are halted then resume.
“Your August Report is quite brilliant. I would describe it as essential survival reading!!!” – Theresa B, USA
Chandra Symbol TAURUS 19
A crown turns into goat horns.
“A remarkable instinct for the next lesson. Finding it, learning it, and drawing everything out of it that you can. Specialized in destiny activation and interested in nothing else. Driven to take up karmic lessons all the way. Wildly given over to what is taken on. Working the territory as hard as you can. Making way for something new by wearing out the old. Assigned to tough situations, yet knowing it is appropriate. Super strong, and especially tenacious and relentless. In deepest essence, sacrificing yourself so that something can happen here that is going to take a lot of doing. And inside it all, you are curiously resigned to whatever arises, not very concerned because long range results mean everything here. And a moment’s or a lifetime’s discomfort is a small price to pay when destiny is truly involved.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale

On July 28th at the New Moon, gas giant Jupiter turned retrograde until the end of October right at the pinnacle of your chart.

This week is definitely not going to be business as usual. A very rare incendiary merger between Mars, Uranus and the karmic Node of Fate in your 5th House is setting your creativity ablaze.
