It's August. Fire Month. Lots of planets in Leo. It's time to roar. All that fire energy will energize you, but interestingly enough, its also a time for DEEP introspection. Let me explain....
The sun moved into Leo on the 24th. We went from moon ruled Cancer to sun ruled Leo and probably felt tired as the shift of energy was so intense. But now its full blow Sun energy, so get out there and move and visit and work hard and play hard and get things done. It's a great time to be creative and be with your children as well. Leo rules the 5th house of romance, creativity and children.
Venus left its short stay in Virgo to retrograde into Leo. Look for old loves to show up, old friends who once meant a lot will return, old opportunities rise up again. Use this retrograde to reinvent your close associates...weed out the bad, give yourself permission for happiness. Put yourself first. The staying power depends on you and how well you can connect. Build bridges and see how it plays out in September when your feet will be on the ground again.
Saturn is in its final stage of Scorpio retrograde, which goes direct today. We won't see Saturn in Scorpio again until 2041. Forward movement is always good. It's time to move ahead, release the baggage from the past few months. Let it go and move on. It's new beginning time and nothing could help that transition better than Sun in Leo energy. Tomorrow, Aug 3rd, Jupiter will EXACTLY square Saturn. This is a push pull effect, so expect ups and downs, feeling restricted, and focus on relationships, the good and the bad and decide who is good for you or not. Mercury and Venus join his square, so this week can be difficult but the release comes on the 8th. Wed, Thurs and Fri will be tense, expect travel delays, movement is pulled back by Saturn, so try to chill and not push things that don't seem to want to budge.
Mars enters Leo on August 8th. Your rocket that has been delayed is ready to launch. It's go , go, go. Take action on things you thought about this week. Use the energy at your back to make interpersonal progress.
August 11th the sign of Leo loses its pal Jupiter as she moves into Virgo for a one year stay until Sept 2016. AS when any big planet moves, the energy really feels different. Leo is proud, outspoken, flamboyant, in the lime light. Virgo is more alone, looking at the details and handling the nitty gritty. You'll be more practical in terms of luck this coming year, just get ready for more duty and responsibility too.
The outer planet Pluto is reminding us, especially around the 14th that the time for change is almost complete. Have you changed your life, or will the Universe change it for you? It's last call time. Get it done.
Chiron, the wounded healer, is also working hard to get you to look within. Its time for insights and epiphanies. Figure out how to let old wounds heal and move on. We have to let go of our baggage. FORGIVE. You can't change the past, so do yourself a favor and forgive it all. Release the pain, the anger, the frustration and let it float away on a hot air balloon in the air. Free yourself. Talk to your Angels and ask for help. They really are there and they CAN help you if you ask.
Finally our new friend Eris is working overtime to send us Goddess energy and balance the scales of Justice. She is working with Uranus, the planet of change, insights, breakthroughs to help you unlock your true purpose. Look at the news! People are mad as hell and they're not going to take it anymore. Demand justice. Find ways to make a noise in your universe and stop unfairness on any level. Every little bit helps.
The Spiritual Warrior call has sounded. Will you step up to the plate and help make this a better world while learning to be the best person you can possibly be?
