It will be interesting to see what comes of the powerful planetary aspects on 28 August, particularly as Mars is at its closest to Earth in 73,000 years during the four month period from July to December. Richard Giles discusses it:
Looking for key dates when we can expect to see these Martian/Piscean energies at their peak, we can’t miss out on the dramatic New Moon of 28th August with Moon in Virgo at 4 degrees. That day five planets will line-up in Virgo – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. The whole five are opposite Mars/Uranus together in Pisces. This could be a week of sudden explosions of change with the beginning of a new monthly cycle in Virgo – sign of health, diet, food standards, chemistry, purity, work standards and medicine. Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, goes stationary the same day turning retrograde for the next three weeks creating confusion.
