We are officially under the reign of the golden crown Leo the Lion. The Sun is shining through the first decan of the sign Leo, where one’s ability to maintain dignity through all of life’s challenges fortifies a stronger sense of confidence. Leo season illuminates where we shine in life, what are we the best at and what we are the most proud of. Notice what you tend to do for fun during your downtime during Leo season to identify those hidden talents we sometimes forget that we have. It is the season of sharing, so get out of that comfort zone and share what you have been working on!
The Moon travels through Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn this week. The 3rd quadrant of the zodiac focuses our attention on how we relate to others through our relationships, shared views, political and religious perceptions and joint goals. Don’t shy away from reaching out to others that you resonate with and who share the same vision as you. This is a good week to take stock of what assets you are able to bring to a collaboration and what you are looking for when working with another person or partner.
4 planets are now in their full retrograde motion: Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, & Venus. The energy is slowing us down for introspection and personal integration. How can you restructure your relationships to reflect and support your main goals in life? How are you showing up in your relationships and do you have a good work/life balance to be able to water the personal relationships that matter most? These are the types of questions we can work through to make the most of the retrograde period.
Mercury enters Virgo on the 28th at 2:31 pm PDT, we may notice our minds focusing on all of the information and formulating pragmatic approaches to our day to day routines. Since mercury in Virgo tends to force our perceptions towards the mundane with a lot of analysis it can be hard to see the bigger picture, therefore taking time to write outlines and maps of what our projects are for the rest of the season can help to keep things organized.
