On Monday, August 1st, two of the most impactful celestial bodies stand in opposition to equally potent planetary retrogrades. A waxing crescent Moon, which governs our inner selves, opposes Neptune RG under Pisces. Additionally, the Sun stands in opposition to Saturn RG under Aquarius.
What do these powerful stand-offs have in store for your sign today?

A large part of honoring oneself requires trusting one’s intuition. Despite your impressive track record of accurately judging people and situations, you’re brushing off these gut feelings as false. What’s keeping you from listening to yourself, Scorpio?
Having to shift your priorities doesn’t mean you got it wrong the first time. Back then, you might’ve made the exact right choice. But as time passes, our needs shift. Learning how to follow suit is an inevitable part of life.
You know what needs to happen to make this situation better—albeit subconsciously. This insight reveals itself in the gut feelings, inner voices, and other nervous system signals you’ve been feeling as of late. How long are you going to ignore them?
There’s nothing wrong with deciding that something doesn’t serve you anymore. The only problem with that logic is that sometimes, it takes time to decide whether it does or doesn’t. Be cautious not to give up too early.
The adrenaline caused by an unwanted confrontation can be hard to stomach. But what if you shifted your gaze a bit? It could be nerves and fear. Or it could be butterflies excited at the new, better opportunities that lie ahead.
