The Sun enters the sign of Leo on July 22nd at 1:20 p.m., Mountain Time. Leo is a fire sign associated with none other than the Sun, which is perfect for this proud sign. Leo is the performer of the Zodiac and does very well in the limelight. Typical Leo careers include sales, acting, educator, goldsmith and patron of the arts. Royalty is in the Leo domain. Yes, this sign needs to be its own boss.
This is a fairly calm month, astrologically. No eclipses, No inner planet retrogrades.
But the one configuration between planets that is occurring is a dicey one. From July 30th through August 2nd, there will be a triple conjunction between Mars, Uranus and the North Node, all in Taurus. Mars is all about action. Uranus is surprises and the North Node affects the collective, or the entire world. The biggest astrological event of the year is the North Node and Uranus joining each other at 18 degrees of Taurus. Uranus is about the future and sudden changes. The North Node is all about a phase that humanity experiences together. It is in a sign for 1 ½ years and is now in Taurus, with the South Node being in the opposite sign of Scorpio. I wrote an entire article about this a few months ago. This is a time for society to deal with money and how it’s being affected by other people’s money and regulations around finances. To make it much more rare and much stronger is that exactly as the join each other, Mars just happens to be there too. The form a very rare triple conjunction. It’s a volatile combinations, folks. Take it easy on those days.
The other planetary alignment that is starting to crop up again is Saturn squaring Uranus. Although most of the squares between those two planets happened in 2021, the are still in a dance with each other and will be through the end of 2022. Saturn wants to maintain the status quo and Uranus is the rule breaker who wants to move things into the future. They just don’t understand each other. Can we move society forward while maintaining a sense of stability? That’s the question. This is leading up to the midterm elections when they will be almost exact again. It talks about unrest in society all over the world. We’re not out of the woods yet.
Regarding the visible planets, most of them are still in the predawn sky now. If you get up about ½ hour before sunrise, you will see Venus, Mars and Jupiter in an arc in the sky above the eastern horizon. The end of August, we will start to see Saturn rising in the east right after sunset.
See you next in Virgo!
