A Mars retrograde-Uranus square on August 1 could lead to an increase in inventiveness and creative breakthroughs, but failures can be very public. Try things out behind the scenes before you debut something that isn?t quite ready for prime time. Mars, still retrograde, enters your sign on the twelfth, so all the energy you?d normally exert trying to get the job done is turned inward. Keep in mind that there will be setbacks and roadblocks, but getting angry won?t do a thing. Patience is always key as you navigate through retrograde cycles. A Jupiter-Neptune retrograde trine follows on August 19, and your intuition works overtime to get messages through to you. Pay close attention to dreams and gut feelings, and don?t be surprised when others come to you for spiritual or moral guidance. You might not know it all, but giving good, sound advice doesn?t require you to be an expert so long as you have the desire to help. Recognition for your achievements comes easily when the sun trines your ruler Saturn (in retrograde) on the twenty-fifth, but you should strive to maintain respect for your co-workers, as well as a strong sense of professionalism. The moment you start thinking you?re better than someone else is when the problems begin.
