Fun with Leo

Astral Weather Report, July '12

July is off to an emotionally charged start, thanks to the Full Moon on July 3. This energy stresses the dynamic between home and family with career and worldly aspirations. There is a restless feeling in the air suggesting it’s time to get the ball rolling.

Also on July 3, Mars (the planet of war and weapons) moves into peace-minded Libra. This ironic placement for the “iron planet” reminds you to let justice, truth, and freedom ring true in all of your affairs.

On July 14, Mercury turns retrograde, that dreaded period when mechanical objects seem to be off, electronics bug out and automobile failures litter the highways. What to do? Relax, review, reflect and regenerate. Mercury retrograde is a time to pay back debts, get money that is owed to you, look over the past and clean up loose ends.

At the time of The New Moon on July 19, energetically put your requests out to the universe. There is no time like the present to get clear about your goals and aspirations. Use this time to ask yourself what you would like to change, let go of and invite into your life.

When the Sun moves into Leo on July 22, the call is to party. The next four weeks are officially the time to have fun. It is a time of creative self-expression, merriment and involvement with children. Bring out your own inner child and feel free to express yourself in all ways.

This festive, fun-making Leo energy carries through the remainder of the month, so feel free to go big with parties, social gatherings and spending time with children. Most of all, don’t be afraid to strut your stuff in grand Leo style!
