For the week beginning with the Leo New Moon, July 31 — August 6:
Your Leo first house is a busy place this week with Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars in residence. The first house represents the self, identity, vitality, and health. I would imagine (and hope) that you are full of energy these days!
The Leo New Moon takes place at 8˚ Leo on Wednesday, July 31st at 11:12 PM EDT, beginning a new six-month growth cycle regarding first house matters.
Mercury, planet of communication, went retrograde in your first house on July 7th, asking you to review those issues of self, identity, vitality, and health. He then backed up into your Cancer twelfth house where he is currently standing still, asking you to look back at hidden or subconscious issues regarding home, mother, and family of origin. Now is a good time for a heartfelt and healing conversation, clearing the way ahead. 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 first house on July 27th. On Thursday, August 1st, Venus will face a challenging square to Uranus, agent of change, currently in your Taurus tenth house of reputation and career. You may face unexpected disruptions or exciting changes involving relationships or finances.
Uranus has been instigating changes in your tenth house for a few months now. You probably have already experienced unexpected events or exciting changes regarding your career or calling, what you do out in the world.
On Tuesday August 6th, the Sun, ruler of your Leo first house, moves into a flowing and fiery trine with Jupiter in your Sagittarius fifth house of creativity and children. Jupiter has been moving through this area for a few months now, asking you to expand your fun and creativity (or even your belly, if you’re looking to have a baby!) Jupiter wants you to be adventurous and explore new territory.
