The week ahead brings some of the sweetest, but also complicated, aspects we’ll see this summer. It’s a highly evolutionary week.

Let’s start with the sweet!

The sun and Venus, which travel close to one another in the sign of Leo, make a beautiful trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius. Yes. This positive alignment boasts the expansion of love and growth. It adds ease and beauty to the cosmic atmosphere. A trine represents an angle of manifestation. Venus and Jupiter are planets that correlate with good luck, good fortune, growth, and love. The blended energy of the sun, Venus, and Jupiter—all in fire signs—provides momentum and positive opportunities to experience motivation.

To sweeten the pot, Jupiter—the planet that represents good luck, good fortune, and abundance—stations direct on Sunday, August 11, after a multi-month retrograde journey, too. With July in our rearview mirror, and the dust from the eclipses and Mercury in retrograde now beginning to settle, allow this week of peak summer vibes to provide you with healing—especially for love and money.

The moon waxes in Libra—a sign that Venus rules—on Monday and Tuesday. The moon in Libra, known for balance, asks us to nourish and nurture our relationships. Vacation season in full effect means that work could potentially feel slow this week. If so, take advantage. Get that phone call in to your parents or your godparents that you’ve needed to make. Call your girlfriends and make plans for a fitness class followed by outdoor dining. Take the time to nourish and nurture the most important relationships in your life.

If you are single and looking, this week provides stellar cosmic support to meet someone, or advance a situation already in play. (And if either happens, please know it’s fated.)

Speaking of relationships, if you are single and looking, this week provides stellar cosmic support to meet someone, or advance a situation already in play. (And if either happens, please know it’s fated.) While the moon waxes in Libra, pay close attention to the invitations and people coming your way. July brought challenging aspects for love; however, now the tables turn. If you get asked out on a date, seriously consider taking it.

Jupiter and the sun trine early in the morning on Wednesday, at 3:31 a.m. Eastern, to be exact. This fire trine builds Monday and Tuesday. Then, on Thursday, Venus trines Jupiter at 4:27 p.m. Eastern, meaning Wednesday brings another layer of beauty, too. Both the sun and Jupiter travel in the signs they rule. Things could fall into place as if by design. And, if that weren’t enough, the sun and Venus are preparing for their conjunction next week, too. The sun-and-Venus conjunction elevates positivity even more, adding a mega-dose of opulence in the air.

When it comes to your profession and money, take advantage of the next two weeks.

When it comes to your profession and money, take advantage of the next two weeks. Venus helps us connect to your values. Venus’ trine to Jupiter amplifies its regality, inviting you to go deeper into your heart and discover the most profound essence of your needs. What is it you most want to to do with your career? Are you getting paid what you need to survive? Are you saving your money? Do you have a wise investment strategy? These are all questions to consider now.

That’s the easy part, now’s here’s the challenging part.

While the sun and Venus make a favorable trine to Jupiter this week, they both also make a quincunx to Saturn first, then the south node, and last Pluto. (Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto conjoin in a Capricorn Stellium.) Simultaneously, the sun and Venus also make a quincunx to Neptune in Pisces. A quincunx, known as an inconjunct, asks us to eliminate what’s not working. The two quincunx’s (the inconjuncts) happen with a sextile between Neptune and Saturn/South Node/Pluto also. These aspects will be in full roar from August 9 to August 13.

When you bring this all together, Venus and the sun, form a Yod configuration. A yod highlights a focal point of fate or something that feels unavoidable. A yod configuration, also known as a finger of God, is somewhat rare and asks for focus.

Venus and Jupiter become even more highlighted, meaning all of this gives way to divine power. It’s an evolutionary activity on behalf of love. There’s a tremendous amount of planetary focus on elevating the feminine.

Truth: this will feel intense, and, it will also bring you into alignment with your most authentic purpose and sense of power.

The week ahead asks you to notice and push back on internalized patriarchy, both within yourself and in the world. The universe asks you to stand up for your most genuine beliefs. This is highly locomotive and instigates action. Given that the sun and Venus conjunction forms the point of this yod while trining Jupiter, it’s time to turn up the volume on feminine values like love and compassion.

With the country reeling from multiple mass shootings, Venus beckons us to take a stand for love.

With the country reeling from multiple mass shootings, Venus beckons us to take a stand for love. Venus represents the feminine archetype with her fiercest love. As she trines Jupiter this week, we can expect a lot of passion, and bold alliances with personal and political values. Healing is very possible. Tune into it and own it.
