Leo’s official season begins this week, making this a significant week. Before we delve into that aspect of this week, let’s look at some other things. First, mercury in Cancer will sextile Uranus in Taurus on July 20th, giving you a chance to solve problems creatively. Venus leaves Leo on July 21st and moves into Virgo. You can find valuable connections through practical means, whether they are business-related or personal. Your values will be brought back into alignment with the transit. Second, on the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo (Happy Birthday, Leo).
This is the time when we all embrace the bold side of Leo, as everyone will want to show off achievements proudly, and no matter your Sun sign, now is the best time to do this. Moreover, the season serves to remind you to follow your heart and keep your head on!
In addition, the Aquarius Full Moon on July 24th makes it a great day for expanding your networks as well as for reaching out to them. Show them you appreciate them by reaching out to them once a week and saying ‘hello.’ This week, how will your sign fare?
Aries – You are experiencing more playful energy than work-related energy, and your creative abilities are soaring. Have fun while you are completing your routines. This is the perfect week for a cocktail party, so invite some friends. The tarot card that comes up for you is the Four of Wands, which signifies that you need to have fun and celebrate with friends.
Taurus – This week, you are more likely to be focused on your personal and family lives. Like Aries, you may be impulsive in doing things around the house and decorating your home or office. Then, through the grapevine or unexpectedly, you might hear from a friend that has something interesting to tell you which involves you. The card that comes up for you is the Empress, which means you will want to be nurturing to those around you and yourself.
Gemini – You might receive a reward this week. It’s possible that you’ll receive an unexpected bonus from a client or that you’ll receive a raise from your employer without expecting it. Don’t get carried away by overspending, eating too much, or drinking too much. The energies could test you in those areas. The Four of Pentacles comes up, which is a sign that even if you get such a great reward, you will not spend it carelessly.
Cancer – Even after many years, you will still be concerned about increasing your income and improving your budget. The tendency to overindulge will be there, but your practical outlook will prevent it from happening. Temperance comes up, which is a sign to you that you need to do things in moderation. Enjoy some wine or chocolate but only in moderation.
Leo – This Full Moon will require a change of perspective on your part in your birthday season. The challenge this week will be to resist the urge to scold someone (in a diplomatic manner, of course), but you should also listen to what they have to say. In addition, a change of perspective will be necessary for you during the Full Moon. The Hermit comes up for you, which means you will want to take some time to yourself and be introspective about certain areas of your life as you have the answers.
Virgo – Venus enters your sign this week, making networking a good option for you. You can expand your network by attending local events (unless you are more comfortable with virtual events). You will also feel more social with Venus in your sign. It would help if you still had time to reflect, making sure you have plenty of private time. During the time of the Full Moon, you will receive the answers you have been seeking. The Moon comes up, which reminds you to be careful with what you hear from others as some truths said to you may be stretched.
Libra – You will have some ah-ha moments this week, and one will involve connecting with other groups that share your interests and hobbies. While you can network for business purposes, this week’s focus is more on your leisure activities. Relaxing and slowing down during your busy work schedule is actually encouraged. The Ace of Cups comes up, which may mean you could get some good news as well. You also want to focus on your intuition and separate that from your emotions.
Scorpio – You will be filled with the desire to connect with others on an intellectual level this week since you may join some trivia-type groups virtually or in person. You will also be more productive at work this week. The activities of your mind will be very active, but you’ll also see a more positive side, such as increased productivity and practicality as well as an expanded mind. The Seven of Swords comes up, which does not necessarily mean anyone is sneaking behind your back (you are a Scorpio, so you will know if that is the case). Based on your horoscope, it is a message for you to act in a strategic way to attain something.
Sagittarius – You may have felt taken advantage of or taken for granted in the past. Your well-deserved recognition is likely to come your way shortly for something you have accomplished or for a good deed you have performed. You can also receive an unexpected raise from your employer or a gift from a client. I am sure you will have a wonderful week this week. The Ace of Pentacles comes up, which signifies a small amount of money coming your way.
Capricorn – You will have an abundance of creativity this week, which you will need to put to good use to solve a work-related issue. Your finances and investments will take on new meaning during the Full Moon, as some funds will perform better in other investments. Make an appointment with your financial planner this week. The Seven of Pentacles comes up, which signifies that whatever investment you make right now will pay off in due time.
Aquarius – You’ll discover something about yourself that you didn’t know before during the week leading up to the Full Moon – even after you’ve done plenty of soul-searching. There may be something that has prevented you from reaching your full potential, and knowledge is power. You will then have to decide what to do about the problem. The Six of Cups reversed comes up, which is a sign that something from your past is still holding you back. And it needs some work to dig through it.
Pisces – This week is the perfect time to focus on self-care. You may need to eliminate certain foods from your diet if you audit your diet. Organize your home office or office at work. Make sure you get enough sleep and spend time with yourself. You will not be affected by sleeping during a Full Moon if you take good care of yourself. You are rebooting yourself this week. The Queen of Cups reversed comes up, which is a sign that you need to focus on more self-care instead of being there for everyone else all of the time.
Moreover, retrograde Jupiter will move back into Aquarius next week, so you may want to wrap up loose ends from earlier this year. August will be here before we know it!
