Today we have a Sun square, and a Moon sextile to Uranus. We have an opportunity to challenge some notions we have about the self and provides the emotional space to integrate these changes. The theme of this month’s astrology revolves around the lessons that Leo brings us. How do we define ourselves? Is that working? What do we need to leave behind so that our light can shine brighter? Uranus as the disrupter can illuminate what isn’t working and help us to find insight to move us closer to our ideal, the moon greases the gears so we can put it all together.
Today Venus leaves the inward focused waters of Cancer and moves into bright and bold Leo. Leo is ruler of the heart. Fitting for this Venusian ingress. For the next few weeks think about what your heart needs to feel seen and validated. Yes of course what you need in relationships, but also what you need to feel fulfilled. Any creative endeavors you’ve been ignoring. You don’t have to be a professional creative to benefit from getting in tune with your heart’s creative desire. Go to karaoke, take an art class, make your friends play charades. You’ll be surprised at how refreshed you feel and what doors might open
The main focus today is the exact trine between Mars and Jupiter. This aspect has been building all week which should culminate in triumph and success for your accomplishments. The Moon In Taurus is busy today, making an early day conjunction with Uranus before squaring both the malefics, Mars and Saturn. The Moon is the ruler of your emotions. Any brush of your emotions with hard stops and aggression can be difficult, no matter how brief. Don’t let any naysayers or small obstacles sour this moment for you. Stand confident in your achievements. You earned this victory, bask in your success.
Today the Sun is in it’s first full day of Leo. The second of five planets that will be in Leo this month. Leo is the sign where the sun feels most at home. Elementally, Leo is a sign of fixed fire. What other source of fire do we have access to that is more fixed and steady than our Sun. It shines for us every day, affirming life and our ability to flourish. With such an emphasis of Leo for the next few weeks, take this opportunity to establish routines that will help you flourish. Leo wants to help you have the confidence to be seen as unapologetically yourself. For those of us that struggle with self-confidence, now is the time to put yourself out there and you will be supported by the universe for your bravery.
Although we still have some vestiges of the Meat Grinder Cancer/Captricorn aspects going on, today we have a lovely fire trine between Mars in Leo, the Moon is Aries, and Jupiter in Sag. While Mars and Jupiter aren’t exactly in trine yet, we’ll still be feeling that influence, which will grow until the direct trine on Thursday. After all the emotional toil and chaos of the past month, today is a great day to assess the damage and look at the results. Our emotions and desire to take action are in harmony and it won’t feel like the tug of war that has been going on over the past month. The universe has thrown us a lifeline and with the Sun’s Ingress into Leo is starting to burn off the excess emotional liquid. Today you can if not make peace with your inner demons, get them to work with you in order to move on and start taking actionable steps on progress that needs to be made.
