The Sun enters its home sign of dramatic Leo on July 22, as we move into the energy of Fixed Fire and the heat is on all over the world (literally). Attune to your heart, your inspired Self - tap into the "You" that was uninhibited and bold before you were taught to settle or hide. Come out and play, express yourself, lead, create, speak up, perform, enjoy and be in joy!
Take charge of your universe, even if it means withdrawing from what others want or think you should do. Know what is yours to do, whether it's on stage or behind the scenes, but be honest with yourself and have the courage to release the past in order to move forward. Leo didn't come to take orders from others - they came to lead.
The highest expression of Leo is to be the Light for those who can't find their own and to empower them or lift them up, so let your Light shine!
During the next five days, Mercury makes various aspects, gathering info and making connections that should be helpful, expansive, revealing, enlightening and even healing. On July 23, Mercury trines Jupiter, a portal for good news, smart plans, bright ideas and positive contacts. Reach out, ask, connect.
On July 26 Mercury in Leo squares Mars in Taurus - two stubborn fixed signs. Arguments, verbal attacks and stalemates are possible, so if you've been holding a resentment, you may blow your top today (or want to). Don’t push. Choose wisely who you engage with and watch what you say.
On July 27 Mercury trines Chiron, offering the potential for a healing conversation or resolution for any discord that has your mind trapped in drama. Use this powerful gift to free yourself from a mental prison of negativity or pain and align with your compassionate Self. Release guilt, shift your viewpoint, make amends - whatever is needed. You may be the healer for another or the receiver of a healing and however it unfolds, it's all good.
The New Moon at 5º Leo is on July 28 @ 10:55am PDT, time for new beginnings - and trine Jupiter, it asks you to expand your horizons and stretch beyond old familiar ideas of yourself and your life. Because Jupiter Stations Retrograde today thru Nov 23, you'll be doing inner work in order to grow and develop aspects of your consciousness to align with your future Self.
Focus on your vision for yourself going forward and adjust your expectations, knowing that they will likely manifest in late 2022/early 2023 with Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde, with Mars to follow in late Oct. Your task is to make it a joyful, meaningful journey (Jupiter), as you go through your process of exploring, assimilating and becoming the next creative expression of your evolving Self (Leo).
Mercury square Uranus in this New Moon setup indicates a rapid tempo, mental stress, confusing info - or inappropriate words due to misunderstanding. Slow down, manage your nervous system by earthing and grounding. Valuable info/insights/downloads may be accessible if you center yourself and create a container for the electric energy to drop into.
Embodying the Light and confidence of Leo will be helpful this week as the Uranus- North Node conjunction begins to join with Mars, which will be exact on Aug 1. We will be feeling the energy of the Mars/Uranus/N.Node triple conjunction all week, beginning on July 25, that creates unstable, edgy undercurrents that can trigger those who are fragile, feel powerless or aren't grounded.
If ever there was a time to stay high, this is it. Be Spock - witness, but don't get dragged into drama, no matter how tempting the bait. Remember, the North Node is leading us toward our collective good and Uranus (the Disruptor) breaks up old patterns to liberate us from stale structures and systems.
We're approaching a period that may be combustible and it’s important to remember that All Is Well, even when it looks ugly. Consider the big picture and know that we are still in the Pluto Return of the US, the death and rebirth of our country (which impacts the world) and that within in a few years (give or take), we will see the emergence of new paradigms that we can't even imagine yet.
In the meantime, we are here to witness the shadows and be the Light, in two parallel experiences - one personal, one global. Develop yourself. Release what's outdated. If ever there was a time to be bold and dare to lead and/or shine your Light, this is it!
We need you to share your gifts with the world. Feel what is true for you and how you want to contribute and trust your Inner Guidance, which is always right on time.
As always, I am grateful for your presence on our journey together. xo
