Happy Birthday! It’s Leo season, and you will be glad to hear that this month is perhaps one of the best months of the year in Astrology. Even the stars recognize your vibrant energy; after all, the Sun itself rules your sign. The Mercurial Solar conjunction happening on the last day of July will make you seem more intelligent in the way you express yourself. This could be the cause of many fun debates with your peers. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself engaged in many friendly disputes throughout the month. With that in mind, some might read your prowess with words as arrogance. Be open to feedback because they could be right. Mercury in this placement can make us conceited, believing that we know more than we actually do. If you stand your ground, make sure you actually have the facts straight to back up your point. Don’t use fancy words just to seem smart. Someone might just catch you, and I’m sure you don’t want to look foolish. You don’t need to pretend you are great. Everyone already knows that.
Mars will be cruising through Virgo for the whole month. This transit will be happening in your second house, bringing attention to how you deal with your finances. In Virgo, Mars possesses a more controlled semblance. The usually impulsive and erratic planet has to adhere to the structural processes of Virgo. This channels his energies much more constructively, which can be excellent for your finances. This transit can give you the drive you need to help you get your debt cleared out. Combining these energies with Mercury’s blessings can help you create an actionable budget plan and won’t leave you frustrated with massive cuts on funds for your entertainment. This is your birthday month, and you more than anybody know that at least a little chunk of your savings will spill into the party. It’s okay to treat yourself a bit, don’t worry.
Our neighbour red planet is also going to be interacting with a very important developmental cycle. In September of last year, we all collectively started a new karmic journey as the North Node shifted to the sign of Gemini. This is an 18-month long transit that is happening in your 11th house. This probably made you step into a more critical role in your community. While this has its perks as Leo’s are natural leaders, you also likely have double the work. This can be a great source of stress, especially since it can turn a place where you felt secure and accepted into tiresome labor. With this Mars in Virgo square, you may begin to understand how to delegate work and share resources, so the stress is not just on your shoulders. Be mindful of tyrant behaviour, though. Mars can also channel your anxiety into unrealistic demands. Be assertive, but stay grounded and allow some room for mistakes to happen. This cycle ends in December. You’re almost there!
The New Moon happening in your first house will get you feeling fresh and ready for another year. This marks the start of a new journey, so take advantage of this particular lunation to set your intentions for a prosperous and joyful year. This New Moon will also get you in touch with your emotions, so allow the space for you to be vulnerable with yourself. When no one is watching, you don’t have to be afraid of seeming week. In fact, a confident display of “weakness” is more robust than any Martian buffoonery. An essential aspect of this moon is the square it will be making with the planet Uranus in your 4th house. The rebellious primordial is reaching the middle of a 7-year cycle that has been manifesting many unexpected events concerning your career and your public image. If you feel frustrated, this can be an explosive time to make drastic changes in your life. Listen to your intuition, and even the most significant leap of faith will land you on your feet. Make this a testament to your feline superpowers.
The Aquarian Full Moon in your 7th house will slow down the pace of events as the moon wanes for the rest of the month. Use this time to wind down and get lost in the realm of ideas. This time could be when you develop innovative strategies to work with your peers to overcome the obstacles you haven’t been able to overcome on your own. Be sure to share your plans with your best friend as they will likely have the perspective you are lacking to perfect your strategies. You are approaching the end game of many personal difficulties. Being well equipped is essential.
