Leo \ July
(July 23rd– August 22nd)
Most Leo’s have a strong ego and they seek attention, this month the energy is reversed and they’re asked to turn inward and deal with their emotions. The Sun, the ruler of Leo, is now journeying through the water sign of Cancer. Fire and water don’t mix. This is not a comfortable placement for our lion. However, even a Leo needs to feel vulnerable and accept their humanness, or they won’t be able to maintain the strong façade they present to the world. If our Leo has a strong spiritual side, then the energy of this month will feel less demanding and more rewarding. In truth, the strength of Leo does not come from its physical prowess, but more from the courage of its convictions. It is their inner power that separates a Leo from the other signs.
With Uranus at the top of your chart, your job or profession has been undergoing a state of change. Either you have a new boss, or someone has offered you a new direction and you’ve decided to take it. The news will be unexpected and leave you a bit shaken. One way or another you’ll find yourself on a new path. Uranus made its move in the middle of May so you may already be adjusted to the changes. The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in your 6th house of work indicates that your focus will be on getting the job done, no matter who’s in charge. There is an opportunity to acquire more power, so pay attention and be aware of what’s going on around you.
Early in the month, Venus the ruler of Taurus and your 10th house of career, is in a grand trine with Uranus and Saturn. You have an opportunity to take the best of the past and incorporate it into new ideas. Don’t miss out on this opportunity; the truth is this is what you were born to do.
Mercury goes retrograde on the 26thin your sign. It goes direct on August 19th. During this time people from your past may appear. You may find that communication is difficult or it’s unreliable. In fact, getting any new project to advance is a challenge. The way to use this energy is to clean out the old, finish what you’ve started and put all new things on hold. If you have to sign a contract, of course, go ahead and do it. However, if you can wait until Mercury goes direct there will be less changes and surprises as you move forward.
Relationships are also challenging. If you’re in one, then anger is a part of the experience as things get worked out. The anger may come from the impossible position you find yourself in. There is an obstacle in the way of harmony and it has to be dealt with. It’s a good time to work out differences, because where you disagree will be obvious. Sharing a common vision is essential to a good relationship. Hopefully, one of you has good communication skills, it’s the only way to bridge any gaps that have been created. If you’re single, you may meet an incredible person, however their life has a great deal of responsibility and finding a way in will be your challenge. Don’t give up, things do change and if you position yourself properly all will go well.
