This week, Watch for some uncomfortable truths to be revealed.

Leo season begins on July 22nd with the Sun’s ingress. Issues of pride, recognition and expressing your personal power/flame are key. Events are public and “the audience” is important.

July 24th sees Mercury Rx conjunct Venus in Cancer, suggesting that the message from the past or the second look can reveal something sweet/supportive. Look again, reminisce, say it once more. Venus enters Leo on July 27th, carrying this theme forward into something bolder and more public. Venus in Leo is about relationships, self-esteem or money that’s a bit risky, fun and attention-grabbing. There’s self-indulgence but also increased self-esteem.

From July 25th-26th, Mars in Leo trines Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius. Jupiter expands, and when it harmonizes with Mars, you have more/bigger actions in confident Leo. But the pesky inconjunct to Saturn Rx will throw in a few snags – delays and restrictions will be part of the deal, but they don’t have to bring you to a full stop.
