Episode details

On August 1 - 2, 2022 we have a rather explosive combination in the sky: Mars in Taurus conjunct Uranus and Rahu, otherwise known as the North Node.

Uranus is the planet of sudden, erratic changes, both good and bad and Mars is the planet of action, heat and aggression. When they come together, it can definitely bring in a fire to the powder keg kind of energy. For example, sudden accidents, freak explosions or major volatility in anything Taurus rules (food, housing, security in general).

With Rahu in the mix, this energy gets super charged and even more unpredictable and erratic.

However, as hazardous and unstable as this aspect is, there is one saving grace: Venus. Taurus is ruled by Venus, which is currently in watery Cancer. She is also making a harmonious sextile aspect to Mars, Uranus and Rahu, which may help steady things more than if she were in a different sign or joining the Taurus party.

How will this affect me?

If your ascendant is in a fixed sign (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio) or you have any personal planets between 15 to 25 degrees of any of these signs, then I suggest you proceed with caution around this time.

This doesn’t mean you need to cower under the covers, but maybe wait on that skydiving trip until the stars are a little more in your favor.

Astro stats

  • Mars, Uranus and Rahu (North Node) meeting up at around 18 degrees of Taurus on August 1 and 2, 2022 (this aspect will be felt a few days before and few days after)

  • The explosive nature is tempered somewhat by Venus, which is currently in Cancer and making a harmonious sextile aspect to these three planets
