How to achieve the perfect work-life balance? With your 1,001 interests, it’s the eternal question for a busy Aquarius. But don’t stretch yourself thinner than gauze trying to achieve that equilibrium. Instead stop, drop and get centered. The fate-fueling North Node meets up with manic Mars and your ruler, chaotic Uranus, this Monday, August 1. And since they’re teaming up in Taurus and your rooted, sentimental fourth house, you need to take care of Water Bearer base camp: full stop. Anyone who can’t understand your need for a personal day may not actually belong in…your personal life. (Note reactions accordingly.) A relative or property matter may demand a jumbo-sized chunk of your attention, and quite unexpectedly. Or, you may suddenly get a wild hare that it’s time to do a bathroom reno, Airbnb the guest room, or build a tiny home out back. While there’s no stopping you when you get one of these ideas in your head, make sure you look (and look again three times) before you leap.
On Thursday, articulate Mercury blazes into Virgo, sending a jolt of electricity through your eighth house of permabonding until August 25. Not only will you have a major case of the feels, but you’ll have no difficulty admitting it—perhaps even in a love sonnet written in iambic pentameter! If you’re attached, you might feel the need for closer connection—and don’t be surprised if it permeates ALL your key relationships. Singles, too, will crave intimacy and a real of sense of “we’re in this together.” One thing to watch for is blowing minor flaws or challenges out of proportion. Tell yourself, instead, that sometimes love really does conquer all.
Make a little time over the weekend to focus on your finances: not just sorting bills and expenses but doing some creative visualization around prosperity. While there’s a direct connection between how much you work (and how well you’re compensated) and your bank statement, there’s also your underlying belief system. Sunday’s magnetic alliance between lucky Venus and karmic Neptune in your financial zones could help you flip your script. Try making some symbolic energy changes, like decluttering your work areas to help open up that flow.

Watch your emotional load on Sunday though! Aggressive Mars in your fourth house of feelings will form a stressful square (90-degree angle) to Saturn in Aquarius. Although you’ll have your oven mitts in plenty of pots this week, you could easily overpromise and stress yourself out. You love to be helpful, Aquarius, but you hate when people get super dependent on you. If you wind up in the caretaker role, make sure you are getting enough support for yourself, too.
