July 23 – August 22
Leos are known for their pride, and being recognized and respected is of the utmost importance to your fiery sign. Between Mercury’s retrograde in your solar 10th house of status and achievement, and Jupiter’s four-month backwards dance in your solar 2nd house of earnings, possessions and self-esteem, you may have felt as though your Leo pride has been a bit dented, or as though all the retro action meant you couldn’t get no satisfaction.
But with jovial Jupiter back in forward motion and mischievous Mercury back in flow, your oh-so-important feel good factor is back. You should be having plenty of reasons to roar with satisfaction. Use the new moon on June 4th, which falls in your solar house of your tribe and hopes, wishes and dreams to take some of that good cosmic juju and set intentions from your heart’s desires.
All you Lionesses have been dealing with stern Saturn slowing you down and putting on the brakes in your solar 5th house of dating, fun and self expression since December 2014. The 5th house is also about the next generation, and perhaps some of you have experienced some disappointments, delays or difficulties with these areas.
With Saturn squaring Neptune in your 8th house (merging, emerging, transformation and rebirth) towards the month’s end, you need to work out what part of you or your life needs to ‘die’ or transform so that you can manifest the true desires of your solar 5th house.
Use the full moon in Sagittarius on June 20th to do some releasing and healing around any issues or frustrations you have about your love life. Trust that your rightful reward and karma (Saturn is the lord of karma) is coming in time.
