The Fire (Sagittarius, Aries, Leo), Water (Scorpio-Pisces) and Earth (Capricorn, Taurus) signs ask us to perform a delicate juggling act in the midst of powerful energetic alignments.

So if you´re feeling like there´s just a tonne of things happening and in completely different ways, you´re not alone.

This is a collection of some of the most important influences at play, by no means a complete listing.


There´s a lot of fiery energy in the skies today with the Sun (24 Leo) trining Eris (24 Aries) – and tomorrow´s Sun-trine-Ixion (25 Sagittarius).

Be aware of what is being sparked within you right now and what seeks to burst out into the world. As difficult as it may feel for some, patience and restraint will see you through this.

Those who feel on edge and about ready to pop may want to ground out and take a mental health day if possible. Some may prefer rigorous exercise as a means to channel and work through all that excess energy.


Jupiter + Moon (15 Scorpio) trined Neptune Rx (15 Pisces). This alignment is asking us to bring up ancestral, karmic, inherited, intergenerational issues and to perceive them in terms of the eyes of Spirit.

Clearing your homes, bodies and spaces of psychic influences from other times/realms will be beneficial at this time.

Drinking purified or blessed water can go a long way in restoring balance. Consider using elite noble shungite to charge and purify your drinking water.

Those with alignments near 15 Cancer will experience this as a Grand Water Trine. More emotional processing, more rest, more sensitivity to process will be required.


We also see Mercury Rx (11 Leo) squaring the Moon at 15 Scorpio right now. Deep emotional drives, catalysts, insecurities, fears and desires are trying to push through to the surface. Some of this will be your personal baggage, others will be linked to intimate partners or even ancestral / generational influences. The clash with Mercury Retrograde in Leo challenges us to express these emotions appropriately, without heading into crash-and-burn mode.

Try to redirect some of this energy into something constructive and creative. Get out of your head and get back into nature. Or pick up a colouring book and get artsy.

Try to avoid making financial, relationship or other decisions until Mercury has (at least) stationed direct – on August 18-19.

It´s the 18th for the Americas and 19th for Asia.


We also see Saturn Rx (2 Capricorn) trining Uranus Rx (2 Taurus). Pay attention to changes in political and economic institutions, structures, persons of power and ecological changes.

If you have anything near 2 Virgo, be especially mindful of gut health and maintaining a healthy body-mind-spirit fitness or healing regime.

Key Reminders:

A little bit of patience can go a long way, especially when dealing with ungrounded or irritable people

If you´re super frustrated, remember to find healthy, creative outlets for all that energy.

Give the energy 2-3 days to shift as we head towards the end of Mercury Retrograde.

Good luck juggling!
