Leo: (Jul. 22-Aug. 23): As your astrology horoscope week begins Leo, the planet of communications Mercury is slowing down and influencing your finances, luxuries, what “feels” good to you and your self-esteem. As Mercury slows down be aware of your thoughts, what you purchase, the information coming to you, and what’s happening around you and why are you procrastinating? You will go over these things again and again throughout the month of September especially during the 3rd Saturn-Neptune square. Maybe you will have your heart set on something and when you buy it you realize it’s not what you wanted or doesn’t make you as happy as you thought it would. It’s important not to put things off, or there could be losses and expensive repairs during the Saturn-Neptune square that plague you through November. Leo has to keep on top of their finances. The planet Mercury is after all the journalist planet, that gatherer of information. Mercury rules the sign of Virgo and is exalted in the sign of Virgo at 15° (where Mercury goes direct next month) the sign where it’s transiting now. In Virgo, Mercury needs to grasp and have a full understanding of everything before moving on. You could also do a lot of research before you make a big purchase or in rare cases you could be swindled. This is an extended period of time to get it right! Do a good job at your work, learn your job, take care of your health, stay organized, on top of things, and fix things. Don’t put things off or procrastinate. Research your purchases and investments. This transit also has something to do with sexual or intimate relationships too!
The planet Mars in Sagittarius is Out of Bounds (Aug. 8-Oct.30) in your solar sector of home, family matters, property matters and monthly expenses. This are of the chart is pivotal and brings a move eventually. That means it’s time to put yourself out there in different ways and try something new or look ahead. Think outside the box. Mars is fun in Sagittarius, exuberant, active and enjoys new experiences, putting him or herself out there, enjoying all things religious, educational, spiritual, foreign and adventurous of course. It’s about outdoor activities, a fun household and an expanding family and bigger budget.
This suggests that everything that you do now has to be all encompassing, and comprehensive. You have to do a good job. Especially if you are trying to move, purchase property or get married. You have to really think long term. Others could be looking to leave home, a marriage or family. It makes you want to understand things completely and thoroughly before you accept them as true. As Mercury in Virgo conjoins the planet Jupiter in Virgo at 26°, it favors your finances, possessions and can bring a windfall. It increases your self-esteem and makes you feel good about yourself. There’s an element of luck, but also a stronger desire to grasp the bigger picture, and really understand something. It favors
As the Sun enters the mutable sign of Virgo (Monday Aug. 22nd 12:38 pm EDT) you’ll want to be more flexible because the sign of Virgo is a mutable sign. The Sun in Virgo solarizes your 2nd house of money, wealth, comfort, luxury and feeling wanted. Avoid excessive criticism, being too picky and cranky. The Sun here helps you to see your own mistakes and how you can improve. Your health, diet, exercise take a priority now, as well your job and work. It’s still a good time to acquire more clothes! You can definitely keep and stick to a budget, and now it pays off. There’s a unique element of luck to your finances.
The planet of action or reactions Mars in Sagittarius conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius at 9°and influences your romance sector, your luck and self-confidence, children and your ability to fall in love. This can be a strong transit because Mars is in new degrees now, (Mars retrograded in April 2016 at 8°53’) so this brings new energy to an old Saturn issue from way back in December, 2016. Leo maybe you have held yourself back, resisted temptation if you’re committed elsewhere or pulled back from someone. Now you won’t or you’ll do it less. Of course Sagittarius rules religious ideologies and foreigners. We have only to look back at the Spring to figure out what’s going on here when Mars was trying to catch up to Saturn then didn’t, now he has. This is a big powerhouse of energy and depending on your natal birth charts will need to take precautions. It can be violent and devastating. Romance has been complicated and your desire to do things and have adventures and fun is now unleashed.
During the 4th Quarter Moon in Gemini at 2°11’ friends, hopes, fears, anxiety, group involvement and profits zone, it’s time to wind things down. How? Maybe through thinking things through, getting your thoughts together, a new approach, or communicating less. If you have reached out to friends, networked or did a lot of work for your career or business, maybe it’s time to let others call you or to benefit from all of your hard work. 4th Quarter Moons are good for waiting things out, observing, pulling things together or collecting on your past efforts, works and deeds. There’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse coming up and you will surely start out or be led in a new direction. That being said an eclipse such as this New Moon Solar Eclipse on Sept. 1st is in effect up to 10 days before it occurs and 6 months after and is visible from central Africa, Madagascar and the southern Indian Ocean.
Romance takes center stage this week as the planet of love, money, wealth and beauty, Venus in Virgo inconjuncts Uranus RX in Aries 24°, it may be time to put away your wallet or splurge on a big trip and there’s an awkward moment. There can be unexpected costs involved with branching out, education or travel. If you want to publish a book you might have to do it at your own expense. Uranus rules age differences too. It can bring an embarrassing moment when you’re out with a new love and you bump into an ex. Or an uncomfortable moment of aggression when you or someone else jumps on something you said or did; more awkward moments! Check the costs of things.
The ruler of men, the masculine counterpart in a female’s chart, the husband, boyfriend or masculine in a relationship, the planet Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune RX in Pisces at 10°. This affects your finances and credit. It affects how someone makes you feel and the tenderness you get or don’t get when you are with another. This is a charged up transit where the lack of restraint (on Mar’s part) is possible. On the other hand, someone could be acting sketchy or evasive. There’s 3rd party involvement in some relationships and maybe cheating. It packs a punch when flirting is going on, leading to a “hands on” situation. Leo this is a potent aspect about love affairs, scandals, cheating and jealousy!
As Venus in Virgo conjoins Jupiter in Virgo at 27° in your solar sector of money, wealth, possessions and gifts, things turn out ok this week in spite of some crazy situations. You can be very generous now and others can be generous with you too. Neither Venus nor Jupiter is able to be themselves in the sign of Virgo, so everyone manages, just manages and somehow it all works out. Don’t mix love and money though.
As the planet of communications Mercury in Virgo conjoins Venus in Virgo 28° in your finances sector it’s something you have to think about, money that is. Romance gets complicated to because this transit also affects moral and good character traits. In short what you will do and what you won’t do. The planet of communications Mercury in wants to know what’s up romantically, or financially or why are you procrastinating, postponing or putting things off?
At weeks end the planet of love, money, wealth, beauty and matrimony Venus enters the sign of Libra, your communications zone and she wants to flirt, with someone new. This favors love, romance, beauty, wealth, engagements and happiness. This week single or committed Leo is favored by Cupid.
