For the week beginning with the Leo New Moon, July 31 — August 6:
Your Leo eighth house is a busy place this week with Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars in residence. The eighth house represents other people’s money, taxes, inheritance, or end-of-life matters.
The Leo New Moon takes place at 8˚ Leo on Wednesday, July 31st at 11:12 PM EDT, beginning for you a new six-month creative growth cycle regarding eighth house issues.
Mercury, planet of communication, went retrograde in your eighth house on July 7th, asking you to review the state of eighth house matters. Mercury then backed up into your Cancer seventh house where he is currently standing still, asking you to look back at issues involving primary relationships, either intimate or business partners. You may be getting clear on a path forward in these areas as Mercury turns direct on Wednesday night.
Venus, planet of relationships, women, beauty, and self-worth, entered your Leo eighth house of other people’s resources on July 27th. On Thursday, August 1st, Venus will face a challenging square to Uranus, agent of change, currently in your Taurus fifth house of creativity and children. You may face unexpected disruptions involving your finances, relationships, or your sense of self-worth.
Uranus has been instigating changes in your fifth house for a few months now. You probably have already experienced unexpected events or exciting changes regarding your children if you have them, or your creative life.
On Tuesday August 6th, the Sun, ruler of your Leo eighth house of people’s money, taxes, inheritance, or end-of-life matters moves into a flowing and fiery trine with Jupiter in your Sagittarius twelfth house of hidden matters and unconscious material. A secret or hidden matter could come to light, or this could be a good time to take a journey of exploration into your own subconscious. Jupiter has been moving through this hidden area for a few months now, so you may have already made some discoveries.
