For the week beginning with the Leo New Moon, July 31 — August 6:
Your Leo fourth house is a busy place this week with Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars in residence. The fourth house represents home, roots, and family - either your current home and family or your family of origin.
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 fourth house issues.
Mercury, planet of communication, went retrograde in your fourth house on July 7th, asking you to review the ways in which you create a sense of home. Mercury then backed up into your Cancer third house where he is currently standing still, asking you to look back at issues involving your siblings, or ways you communicate with others. 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 fourth house of home and roots on July 27th. On Thursday, August 1st, Venus will face a challenging square to Uranus, agent of change, currently in your Taurus first house of identity, vitality, and health. You may face unexpected disruptions or sudden change involving home and family, relationships or finances.
Uranus has been instigating changes in your first house for a few months now. You probably have already experienced unexpected events or exciting changes regarding your identity or your health.
On Tuesday August 6th, the Sun, ruler of your Leo fourth house of home and roots moves into a flowing and fiery trine with Jupiter in your Sagittarius eighth house of other people’s money, taxes, inheritance, or end-of-life matters. Perhaps money flows into your home in some fashion? Or optimism and good vibes at any rate!
Jupiter has been moving through your eighth house for a few months now, so you may have already experienced growth or expansion in your understanding of this sometimes hard to grasp area.
