Tip of the Week:
Leo time begins on July 22 in the waning light of the Moon. It does so amidst a series of noteworthy planetary placements. Principle among these is Saturn in Aquarius which is still not technically in aspect (‘unaspected’) to any other planet, currently. This actually began on Summer Solstice and continued ever since.
Unaspected planets can be described as ‘wild cards’. The outer manifestation can be described as a growing number of societal factions and subcultures. So, while certain forces aspire to increase homogeneity, this push for recognition by these smaller groups is growing. This should be quite expected in the Age of Aquarius, the sign of individuation.
From the perspective of Numerology, July is a Universal 13/4 month. Like entering an order that requires the death of habitual self-concepts and attitudes ritualized as the shaving of the head, this is suggestive of a process of deepening and of initiation. Not usually a fun experience, playful Leo begins on a somewhat sobering note, quite in-keeping with these complex times.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Creating beauty and harmony close to home continues. Diving deeper into projects is likely. Giving more than you may want will yield a bit, to the desire to have more fun, but home and family remain your main focus. Accepting the continued weight of responsibility is hardly a party but consolidating yesteryear and building for tomorrow feels right.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Although you may have felt the desire to slow down, you probably find yourself attending to a variety of fronts. Moving slowly and gracefully from one to the other is the ideal behind slow but sure. Weaving in quality time is featured in balancing work with play. This focus will continue for a while so take and target those precious pockets.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Leo time tends to bring you to life, to want to engage with others and have fun more than usual. Themes of security are on your mind, however, and these could have a dampening effect. Other factors add to this resulting in being pulled within and without simultaneously preventing you from being as fully present as you would like. Use this awareness to take command.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Taking stock of what is important and where your priorities need to be is a central theme now. This can include thoughts and strategies to make investments. Meanwhile, a rebellious mood prevails. Forging ahead somehow does feel important. Sharing your feelings and concerns with significant others will probably help.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
The Sun entering your sign will inspire you to take new leads. Your career and public life are likely arenas to forge ahead. This impulse will increase after the New Moon later this week. The challenge includes overcoming a mood for introversion. To prevail, exercise more empathy for others to access hidden motivation to go the extra distance.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Returns for past efforts and investments have likely been flowing in. Hopefully, you have been diligent and wise. Yet, you may also feel a little burned out. If the opportunity to get away, to retreat, or simply duck out of the limelight for a while presents itself, grab it! It is said that a change of scenery is as good as a rest, so perhaps that is the way to go. If you can have both, even better.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
This is generally an expansive time for you and this trend will continue for months. Getting organized to get things done feels important. Meanwhile, the desire to share more quality time with friends is indicated. Ticking an item or two on your bucket list is part of the plot. Focus to combine both interests for best results.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Getting the attention you want, have earned, and feel you deserve is in the spotlight. You will push as necessary to be seen and heard, even if you have to shake things up. Cultural activities in which you can express your mood, feelings, and sense of individuality are featured. Yet, for all of the above, success requires you to confront your fears.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Out of the dark and into the light is an apt description of the Sun in Leo’s influence on you. This is not to say that the past month’s journey through the dark was bad or evil. However, it was a time to purge layers of your ego to remain current with your destiny flow and such cycles are not usually particularly pleasant.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Are there any reactive resistances within that you recognize to be problematic? This is your opportunity to break free. However, success depends on your level of awareness and willingness to do the work. This requires a certain measure of vision to move from a posture of instinctual survival to intuition-guided personal growth.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
A fuller embrace of those you love characterizes the next phase of your annual journey. In some respects, circumstances are requiring you to give more than you might want. However, the quality of your communications is probably better than usual and you feel both more understood and understanding. Creative cooperation is the key.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Making improvements in your lifestyle is in focus now. This can occur by deliberately taking a break, by getting away from the same old for a while. Your powers of creative, critical thinking are running high and present a golden opportunity to direct your mind to technical projects that have been on hold until the time is right.
