Tip of the Week:

We are fast approaching third base for Leo time and will be driving to completion when, on August 23 the Sun enters Virgo, marking the last official month of summer. This annual, rhythmic cycle is subject to the ever-changing backdrop of planetary alignments and their whole and respective inter-relationships. Like basic math, the annual round can be understood as the common denominator and the ever-changing dynamic of planetary cycles represent the variable. Of course, the weather tends to be a little different each year, within probable parameters. This is even more the case due to geoengineering. Yet, the cast of the Sun’s light is much more closely exact, within a 24-hour period or so. The Sun and Venus will cross paths in Leo on August 13, which will prove to heat things up in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Mercury and Mars already in Virgo are tilting the emphasis to critical analysis and making key improvements wherever necessary.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Getting in what fun in the Sun you can with the Sun/Venus in Leo influence contends with the constructive and production-oriented influences of Mercury and Mars in Virgo. This is the ideal recipe for practical projects. Finding the sweet spot, you can read a self-help book while lying on the beach…

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

The solar pulse is directing your focus to home and family, With Venus’s influence, beautifying your living space is a likely ideal. The Mercury/Mars influence emphasizes play environments. Yet, with Venus retrograde, avoid making big purchases or investments and aim for frugality, for now.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

With your curiosity switch on high, a travel itch that won’t quit, and a restless mood all converging in, you had better respond accordingly lest you implode. You could possibly satisfy it all with an adventurous book since imagination power can blur the lines between fact and fiction. Otherwise, pull out that bucket list.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Assessing what is worth your time and effort is a current theme. Discerning between an array of options with an emphasis on thinking twice and three times even before making final commitments is a contributing theme. Be extra deliberate regarding expensive choices and do your research.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

The Sun and Venus in your sign indicate an impulse to express yourself even more than usual. The Virgo factor continues to direct your focus to practical and constructive activities. Positively, your confidence levels are staying steady, even though circumstances close to home continue to shift your perspectives.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

A busy time behind the scenes continues. You probably feel excited at the prospect of being constructive and productive on a variety of fronts. If you manage your time well, which you want to do, you could get more done in four weeks than you have in six months at previous times.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Exploring, expressing and perhaps even asserting your sense of individuality is a current theme. An urge and itch to have new experiences could be leaving you feeling curious, but also restless. The key is to allow yourself to be experiential and experimental with who and how you are.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Finding your place in the sun, or in the limelight, or at least in the clear view of those whose attention your desire, is important now. A review of your choices, actions and overall performance over the past year or so could be making you feel insecure or supporting you to either feel deserving of recognition and rewards.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Freedom is a state that can be experienced both within and without, as can restriction and bondage. Contending with feelings and circumstances in this regard is likely of late. With awareness, you can work on feeling free inwardly and also look for every opening and opportunity for adventure.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Some cycles are more psychologically complex than others, like now. A yearning to be embraced and touched vies with feelings of isolation and seeking strict self-containment, like a caterpillar in a cocoon, even while socializing. The key is to be aware and trust your feelings and with grace and poise.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Sometimes we need to feel loved and embraced more than others and this is likely true now. In as much as you are experiencing conflict in your relationship life, the impact could feel inflated and out of proportion. Either way, focus to be your own best friend, accepting, understanding, supportive and loving.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)               

It is said that they key to happiness is to give, give and give again. This is another way of saying that life is about service. Yet, this does not equate to servitude. Giving more of yourself now is a key to your happiness. Doing so by way of practical accomplishments will bring peace and fulfillment.
