Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Leo: Happy Birthday Leo! What a month in store for you for your birthday with two mighty Eclipses that will be glimpsed across the US. It should be a significant, corner turning month for you. But first of all, Mercury shall be Retrograde by the 13th from your house of personal income which simply suggests that you might reign in your purchases this month and become more prone to reflection and close talk with those you know than outlandish effrontery and extrovertedness. Venus and Pluto are also at odds this month, which can bring relationships to a breaking point--for you this is highlighted on your axis of personal undoing, of secrets and isolation with Pluto in the house of routine and habits and health. Venus in your secret house can really renew your self-worth as well as bring your focus deep within, so deep that you let go of a stranglehold you might have held reign on your own ego, on who you think you need to be. You also pour love into yourself this way, love that softens what is broken. Pluto meanwhile pushes you to a major overhaul of your routine and your habits of health all from a position of self-love. This transit, too, suggests that your body, your mind-focus will be greatly piqued, very aware, and you must struggle on towards your own personal perfection as you will. Then on August 7th there will be the Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees Aquarius in your house of others, which will very significantly affect you if you were born around August 7th or if your rising sign is within five degrees on either side of 15 degrees Leo. Then the Eclipse will align with your Descendant, the most sensitive point of relationship and self-reflection. The Eclipse will oppose Mars in your house of self, so you will certainly be self-concerned this month, on fire, revved up, and determined, though your Moon, your heart yearns for approval from someone. Jupiter send a positive signal from your house of the mind, and so suggests that ultimately you are healthy of mind and eager for experiences and well-supported through your friends. It's possible you could make a bold move at this time: perhaps a proposal, perhaps an important business merger, if the relationship is not romantic. A loss is possible as well, it always is, even with Jupiter. Jupiter is not exactly what everyone thinks--the planet of good things and happiness--no, not really... Jupiter expands our minds, and sometimes this expansion includes awareness and acceptance of loss so that new eras, new people can be ushered in. On August 21st there will be the Solar Eclipse at 28 degrees Leo, hitting the star of Regulus exactly, aligned with Mars and uniting in fact all the fire houses through aspects to Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius. The Solar Eclipse is the most wonderful, fortuitous thing I can imagine for you--signaling your house of self, your house of creativity, and your house of the objective mind. For a long time now Saturn might have blocked and limited your creativity, your effusiveness with pleasure and money, your ability to have children, but here it seems that solid ground has been laid for a new emergence of self, confident and assured, in which your mind is ready, open, and receiving of profound, earth-shattering material, as indicated by Uranus. Depth of understanding, ego-adjustment, and respect for your limitations, for your very losses, are the key this month.
