Friday, July 26 features an interesting quincunx aspect between Mars and Saturn. A quincunx aspect works on two levels: with an immediate impact followed by a delayed effect. It immediately affects us like a square aspect, meaning there are possible challenges and difficulties. And after that, it can shift the impact into a harmonious, sixty degree sextile.
Marina Stoichkova, an astrologer from MarStars Astrology, believes this means you can eventually expect some positive and benefits.
The horoscope expert said: “Although we can initially experience some possible challenges, these will be followed by some positives.”
Mars and Saturn are actually two completely different planets.
Mars is about taking action and risks and being impulsive and independent.
Saturn, conversely is the polar opposite: it is maintaining things as they are, resisting change and playing it safe.
Ms Stoichkova added: “We may consequently feel in the middle of those two polarities today.
“From one side we may feel inspired to take action and at the same time we may feel a certain passivity.
“Or we may encounter the there to move things forward while simultaneously wish to plan and prepare.
“We have to to therefore be very flexible today and react quickly to events.”
Eventually we can hope to achieve a great result.

This is because Saturn can bring much-needed caution and care to Mars.
And at the same time, Mars can help Saturn too by influencing us to be less rigid and afraid today.
So Friday will turn out to be a fascinating day – but remember, the positives will arrive only after the challenges.
Today’s other astrological aspect is the Square and a Half between the Sun and Neptune.
MarStars Astrology astrologer Ms Stoichkova thinks this aspect can make us feel a little day-dreamy and lacking focus.
She said: “Be careful with information and tasks requiring concentration and accuracy today.
“But expect plenty of positives for things requiring creativity, spirituality and inspiration.”
Meanwhile, the Moon remains in Taurus on Friday, meaning a little patience is necessary today.
And we need to stay grounded and in touch with reality, meaning this might actually help with the Neptune-Sun aspect.
