The Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction — at 18° Taurus — is exact on August 1st and then slowly begins to separate in the coming days.
It may take a few days to unwind from the tension or action you experienced during the buildup to this conjunction but unwind it will. The question remains is what you will take away from how that blend of cosmic energy affected you.
Changes are afoot in many ways because of that transit and in addition we also have a Saturn Uranus square moving closer all month with Uranus quite powerful as it is basically stationed at the 18th degree of Taurus all month before it retrogrades on August 24. Big changes will require a disciplined approach to really stick with this energy.
Mercury moves from 24 degrees of fiery Leo through Virgo and ends the month at 4 degrees of airy Libra. Lovely Venus glides from 16 degrees of watery Cancer to 23 degrees of fixed fiery Leo at month’s end. Mars travels from 18 degrees of earthy Taurus to 6 degrees of mutable Gemini. Jupiter is retrograde at 8 degrees 41’ of cardinal Aries and moves back to 6 degrees 52’. Fire signs have lots of power this month.
Saturn is at 22 degrees 50’ of fixed air Aquarius and squares Uranus at 18 degrees of fixed earth Taurus. This square once again challenges the status quo as it is #2 in a series of 3 squares. Retrograde Neptune moves from 25 degrees of Pisces to 24 degrees and Pluto grinds over the 27th degree of Capricorn back to the 26th. Yes, the cosmic weather is still tense out there but thinking out of the box for solutions is the way to go. The way is forward and into the future not the past.
Read your Sun sign and Rising sign for best information.
Aries — March 21-April 19: With Mars moving away from Uranus and the North Node, it shifts out of crisis mode into a more flexible placement but not until after the 16th when it moves away from a conjunction with a malefic fixed star, Algol.

Best days for this are the 17th and 18th.
