This weekend may have moments of tension, but you'll be able to handle them.
There's a brief Cardinal Square (or Cardinal Cross) happening. Jupiter (at 10 degrees Cancer) will be opposing Pluto (at 9 degrees Capricorn) and squaring Uranus (at 12 degrees Aries). I wrote about the Jupiter/Pluto opposition here; the energy is diminished now, because it peaked on August 7th. Jupiter's square to Uranus is building, so you may start to feel it this weekend. I'll write another post on this, but Jupiter (expansion) in Cancer square Uranus (surprise) in Aries is about emotional impulsiveness.
These energies may be triggered by the Moon as it moves through Libra (squaring Jupiter and Pluto, opposing Uranus). The transiting Moon is a fast moving influence. There will be a narrow window when it's actually within orb of Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto, and that will be (roughly) from 9:15 PM (Aug 10th) to 9:15 AM EDT on Aug 11th.
Cardinal energy is quick, and the Uranus/Jupiter influence will push for sudden results. So there's potential for emotional storms that pass as quickly as they flare up. Libra adds the influence of swinging from one extreme to the other, in an attempt to achieve resolution. These flurries of energy will be working against the stubborn background of Mercury in Leo square Saturn in Scorpio (Leo and Scorpio are Fixed signs).
You could experience this in one of two ways:
- Shutting someone's ideas/conversation down (Mercury square Saturn) and being hit by their big emotional reaction (Jupiter/Uranus).
- Being shut down (Mercury square Saturn) but throwing yourself forward anyway, hoping to make things happen with the force of your optimism (Jupiter/Uranus). And then abruptly withdrawing your support (Pluto/Jupiter) when the other person doesn't respond favourably.
The temptation will be to frantically throw yourself against the walls of the Mercury/Saturn square, trying any dramatic approach to get a "Yes." Or someone else may try this. Going to extremes is not the best way to handle these energies. As I said, this is a brief influence, and should blow over quickly. So if you hear "No", just leave it for now. Try a different approach when things are calmer (after this weekend). If you feel the urge to put a smack-down on someone, know that the intensity of their response will match the severity of your words.
Play it cool, and you should be ok.
You'll probably experience this influence only if you have planets/angles between 8-12 degrees of the Cardinal signs. And even then, it will be closer to a quick thundershower than a hurricane.
