For the week beginning with the Leo New Moon, July 31 — August 6:
The Leo New Moon takes place at 8˚ Leo on Wednesday, July 31st at 11:12 PM EDT in your Leo twelfth house. The twelfth house is considered a hidden place, an area of our psyche we cannot easily access. The twelfth house asks us to reflect and to spend time alone while working through both personal and collective layers of unconscious material.
Mercury, planet of communication, went retrograde in your Leo twelfth house on July 7th, asking you to look back at hidden issues regarding your creativity and vitality. Do you keep your light hidden? He then backed up into your Cancer eleventh house where he is currently standing still, asking you to review matters regarding friends and larger networks. Now is a good time for a heartfelt and air-clearing conversation with a friend to clear up any misunderstandings that may have come up.
Venus, planet of relationship, women, beauty, and self-worth, entered your Leo twelfth house on July 27th. On Thursday, August 1st, Venus will face a challenging square to Uranus, agent of change, currently in your Taurus ninth house of higher education, legal matters, religion, or travel. You may face unexpected disruptions, secrets revealed, or exciting changes involving relationships or finances.
Uranus has been instigating changes in your ninth house for a few months now. You probably have already experienced unexpected events or exciting changes regarding travel, higher ed, or religion or spirituality.
On Tuesday August 6th, the Sun, ruler of your Leo twelfth house, moves into a flowing and fiery trine with Jupiter in your Sagittarius fourth house of home and roots. This could be a good time to explore those hidden or repressed issues regarding your roots and family of origin.
