If you are an artistic Leo, and most of you are, you are about to enter into one of the most prolific years of your life and it is coming your way at month’s end!  To get started Venus is taking up residence here on the 2nd where she will help you find more ease and enjoyment when it comes to film, music, dance, painting, art appreciation, concerts, museums, sculpture, and poetry.  This territory also rules your spiritual life so you may find things begin to go well with meditation, yoga, magic, psychic interest, or any other pursuit you have to obtain bliss.  Clandestine romances and well as finding time to secret away with your lover are favored by her placement here and she can also help you attract income through these channels as well as with hospitals, prisons, retreats, helping those with addictions, or in dream work.  Start now to look at how your love or income flow is working in these areas because here is where the growth is coming.  Women may be beneficial to you here during this month.

The last Trigger date to last month’s Solar Eclipse arrives on the 6th so you may have another chapter to that story peaking now.  Look to anything involving career, goals, reputation, fame, ambitions, leadership, status, bosses, parents, judges, or other authority figures to hit high points and launch you forward again.

Venus will be getting jiggy with it on the 7th so you may have a hay day for artistic pursuits, your private romantic needs, a spiritual cause, hospitals, addictions, research, investigations, or development.  There are good links here to financial needs, divorce, sex life, home, real estate, moves, family needs, or roommates so push a bit.  Neptune Retrogrades today and begins taking you back over past inspired interests or issues involving these sexual attractions or issues, financial matters, divorce issues, a death or birth, third party situation, and power or control needs.  This period is all about finessing and reconnecting with the muse, doing your research and developing, releasing, reclaiming, or renewing anything still in the mix or left behind.  You may note something coming to your attention today that will point in the right direction for this period.

The NEW MOON arrives on the 8th and is your best 2 week window of the year to launch ahead or take things to the next level with aspirations you hold dear, any friendships and projects you would like to commence with them or new friends you would like to take on, group affiliations and activities new or moving ahead on old ones, internet projects or interests, astrological interests, charities, causes, visionary ideas, social networking, or social events.  You should be the hot topic on everyone’s invite list and your ideas should be well received.  Today however you will need to make an adjustment involving home, family, real estate, moves, renovations, or roommates.  There will be some news or moment coming that surprises regarding travel, legal, media, publishing, marketing, educational, or wedding plans so be ready to field it in the moment.

Chiron Retrogrades on the 16th and will be in backtracking mode through November 19th, shadowing Neptune’s trail through Pisces.  This period is your cue to face any wounds you feel or have inflicted and healing that can be done again regarding your sex life, a divorce, a death or birth, some big financial matter, a third party situation, or the control you feel.  You may call upon your own personal guru within to help others heal through your own experiences here.  Something may come to the surface now that lets you see what you should go back and work on.

The 19th brings a very big aspect and a challenging one.  The big aspect puts you in the spotlight in some big way with friends, groups, online, with a charity, over astrology, a cause, social networking, or your aspirations.  This is your day to shine, step in and take the lead, there may be something involving expansion, travel, media, legal channels, education, or weddings that can be tapped into.  The other challenging energy is around Mars nudging Chiron and pushing you to look at that financial matter, sexual need, divorce, death, birth, triangle, or control issue and what can be done about the aspiration, friend, group, internet, astrology, or charity in the mix.

The Sun moves into Cancer on the 21st lighting up your mystical zone and joining Venus there.  This is the beginning of a 30 day cycle that puts you in the spotlight over film, music, art, spiritual interests, research, investigations, retreat, rest, imagination, dealing with addictions, hospitals or other institutions, time with that private romantic interest, and developing projects.  You will be more physically and personally involved here during this period so pull back, you deserve some time to connect with your magical side.

The last Trigger date for last month’s Lunar Eclipse arrives on the 22nd so you may have another chapter to that story peak around creative projects, children, love interests or issues, or recreational interests.  This will be about achievements and endings.

The following day, on the 23rd, is this month’s FULL MOON and it is highlighting your work, bringing some climax here or your health and reaching some goal or wrapping something up.  It may involve co-workers or people you hire to help you and some culmination or pets or animal interests could reach a highpoint.  Paperwork and organizational needs peak as well.   If you’ve been waiting on an offer you could get it now.

And finally Jupiter makes his big move, entering your 12th house on the 25th and kicking off a major year for growth and luck around film, music, art, spiritual pursuits, hospitals, prisons, retreats, research, investigations, time alone with your romantic love or clandestine affairs, beating addictions or bad habits, dreams, imagination, inspiration, Karmic opportunities, and development on projects.  This is the best opportunity you have had in over a decade so with so much light on you from the Sun right now you should get cracking!

Interestingly enough, the next day Mercury Retrogrades in the same arena and will be backtracking from now through July 20th.  Apparently the cosmos thinks there is something for you to still reclaim, release, rework, or revamp in these areas.  Look at past decisions and agreements, writing and sales, talks and meetings, over artistic interests, spiritual pursuits, romance, hospitals, addictions, research, investigations, or development.  You should be able to reframe the idea or get things working better so you are ready for this huge move forward.  It’s best to hold off on purchasing new electronics or vehicles or sign new agreements during this period if you can hold off without harming your situation but you are ok to do so if it is something from the past coming back around.

Venus moves into Leo on the 27th as the last energy shift of the month.  Hosting Venus in your sign is a luxury that bestows some charm and attraction right down upon you!  Use this to pamper yourself, put your image or brand forward to earn money, get present for love, do nice things for your image or body, and relax, it’s your turn to enjoy the flow.  For those of you that would enjoy a more fine-tuned look into your own unique birth chart, you can email Zoe for rates and dates here zoemoonastrology@gmail.com
