The Sun enters the sign of Leo on July 22nd at 1:40 a.m., Mountain Time. The sign of Leo is a fire sign and is associated with the nothing less than the Sun! Of course, it’s Leo. This is the sign of confidence, charisma and leadership. Leo is the entertainer or at least is quite entertaining. They enjoy being the center of attention. Oh yes, Leo feels more comfortable being in charge. Just so you know, we all have a little Leo in us, and this is the time of the year to let it shine.
What dominates the sky now and will for a while? The Capricorn Party, of course, but there is another player involved now. Mars is the new kid on the block and will be challenging, which is putting it mildly, the old Capricorn values. Mars has entered his own sign of assertive Aries on June 28th and will remain there all the way until January 7, 2021. The reason he’s there that long is that Mars will be retrograding in Aries for much of that. Mars will be squaring the Capricorn Party the entire time, forcing change.
People will feel passionately about their causes. It will be hard to contain intensity and even anger. Impatience is the word for that phase. Count to 10 before you do anything rash. Instead of seeing this as a problem, I think those stodgy ole Capricorn planets needed a big push to move forward. We are watching humanity change before our very eyes. On a person level, push change in your life too. There are grand opportunities in this lineup as well as frustration. It’s each of our individual choice of how we want to use Mars.
Even though these could be seen as hard times, being an astrologer, I know deeply inside that this is all part of a larger divine plan. If we just trust the Universe and trust the process, it will be a lot easier on us. Things are the way they are supposed to be, or else it would be different. Patience and trust are good traits to encourage now.
Regarding the visible planets, after mid-August, Jupiter and Saturn can be seen rising in the east right after sunset. Planets are always easier to see in the evening and we will have both of these beautiful planets in the evening sky for quite a while to come. Welcome, Jupiter and Saturn. Venus and Mars are now seen in the predawn sky. If you’re in luck, you can also see Mercury too.
See you all in the sign of Virgo.
