Mars Square Saturn...

starts (1 degree orb) on August 9, exact on August 11, and leaves on August 13: Mars at 20 degrees and 26 minutes of Gemini, Saturn at 20 degrees and 26 minutes of Virgo.

Mars is the planet of action, passion, getting things done, acting before thinking, drive, direction, etc and gives us the direction we need in life to focus our energies. Saturn is often associated with responsibility, slowing down, thinking before acting, and structure.

These two planets like to get things done but have a very different approach to each other, making the connection between them frustrating - especially through the square which suggests that they will be working at cross-purposes to each other. This is likely to be an extremely frustrating and irritating period of time for everyone when we will probably feel blocked and unable to move ahead on our current path.

By looking at when these two planets were last in a hard aspect we can get an idea of what was happening then and what may need attention now. Mars and Saturn were in opposition early in April this year at 16 degrees of Pisces/Virgo.

Look at where the opposition took place in your birth chart in terms of your houses, and also the current square to get a feel for where you may need to try a different appraoch (a square is often a period of time where a new approach is needed, that leads to a turning point in a frustrating situation). Also look to see which houses have Aries, Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius on them to fill in the details.
