For the week beginning with the Leo New Moon, July 31 — August 6:
Your Leo ninth house is a busy place this week with Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars in residence. The ninth house represents religion, higher education, legal matters, and travel.
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 ninth house issues.
Mercury, planet of communication, went retrograde in your ninth house on July 7th, asking you to review the state of ninth house matters. Mercury then backed up into your Cancer eighth house where he is currently standing still, asking you to look back at issues involving your mother or other women, other people’s money, taxes, inheritance, or end of life issues. 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 ninth house on July 27th. On Thursday, August 1st, Venus will face a challenging square to Uranus, agent of change, currently in your Taurus sixth house of service and daily routine. You may face unexpected disruptions involving your finances, relationships, or your sense of self-worth.
Uranus has been instigating changes in your sixth house for a few months now. You probably have already experienced unexpected events or exciting changes regarding your place of work, daily routines, health, or even your pets.
On Tuesday August 6th, the Sun, ruler of your Leo ninth house of religion, higher education, legal matters, and travel, moves into a flowing and fiery trine with Jupiter in your Sagittarius first house of self, identity, and vitality. This could be a great time to set off on an international adventure! Or to launch new course of study in a topic that lights you up.
