We are in a period where most people are dealing with some kind of problem, loss or issue, and the energy is not going to shift immediately. That's not to say good things can't happen, and things will be smoother for some than others.
First of all we are in the eclipse season. The eclipse of July 27, was powerful and volatile. We will experience another solar eclipse in Leo August 11.
Mars is retrograde, and very powerful. In Aquarius it rules the collective and there will be surprises in the future. It plays out in the world, and of course our personal lives.
Mars is square Uranus this week and this is unpredictable, explosive, and hard to handle energy, that will last through the first week of August
Caution is required with energy like this, especially as we approach the eclipse mid-month.
On the upside, many people will make changes that can be positive, forward thinking and unique, and break away from that which has become stale and outworn.
