Take full advantage of the moment while the creative potential is at peak – or while the opportunity of a challenge sets its sight on you as an exercise partner. Each on their own timetables, Mars (the will), Mercury (the mind), Venus (the senses/the feel of it), and the sun (state of being/the energy source) keep the Leo archetype in high gear. Leo, the creator archetype, correlates to the heart and centre of self. Aim to find/create your own source of well being, to find/realign with your happiness center as often as you can, independent of the daily grind and what might trouble the mind. Let your creative spark/that self love and self honouring be the light source that shines the way forward.
Saturn & Neptune retrograde in Pisces:
June 5 to Oct 8: Venus in Leo (retrograde cycle July 22 to Sept 2):
July 17: New Moon in Cancer; Karmic (Nodal) Axis on a Sign Shift:
Saturn & Neptune retrograde in Pisces:
Have you recently felt loose ended, depleted, or plagued by uncertainty, lack of clarity, or lost faith and hope? If so, you’ve succumbed to difficult qualities of Saturn’s recent advance into Pisces. However, despite challenge or appearance, nothing is ever at a standstill. The planets are always on the move, and you will be soon enough too.
Both Saturn and Neptune are at the start of retrograde tours in the sign of Pisces. While you might think the backtrack is a negative, the cycle incorporates good purpose. Over the next few months, the experiential track could be subtle, or the curtain could pull back in some obvious way. Either way, watch for Saturn and Neptune to help you to identify what has eluded or confused you to date. Saturn retrograde continues to Nov 4. Neptune retrograde continues to Dec 6. Expect the clarifying process of both planets to be gradual, for circumstances and potentials to continue to unfold through the end of the year.
July 3: Super Full Moon in Capricorn:
The next four full moons (July 3, August 1, August 31, September 29) are all super moons. They’ll shine more brightly in the night sky. Of the four, the August 31 full moon is in closest proximity to the earth. It is referred to as a “blue moon” due to its distinction as the second full moon in a calendar month. You may feel the punched-up effect of a super full moon if it makes direct contact to your birth chart.
The super full moon in Capricorn is sandwiched between Canada Day, July 1, and the USA Independence Day, July 4. It is an appropriate influence for paying respect, reaching a milestone, marking an anniversary, and for making it official.
The challenge of managing priorities, duty, obligations, limits, limitations, timelines and deadlines can pile on plenty of extra pressure and stress. Go gentle on yourself as best you can.
Whether it is reaching an end or arriving at a starting gate, the full moon brings a feel that the time has come, that the time is ripe, or that time is short, in which case it is important to put it to good use. A full moon is always illuminating. The super full moon in Capricorn puts added attention or pressure on matters to do with duty, responsibilities, priorities, goals and achievements, limits, limitations, respect, and boundaries. Among the range of ways you can experience the full moon, you can be occupied with matters to do with parenting, aging parents, debt management, banking, signing a contract such as a mortgage, a marriage certificate, etc.
Coping skills can be tested. Overall, the full moon prompts you to show up for yourself, to take charge, to get it under better control, to prioritize self care, to create better personal effectiveness and time management. Are you losing too much time, is it putting you under pressure, have you used it wisely? Do you/does it need to give it more time? The full moon could add strain between career and personal or family matters. Capricorn also puts added attention on the past. Are you dragging it forward or is it a solid foundation? Do you stand poised at the intersection of reward or consequences? All this can be fodder for your full moon experience.
July 1, Venus/Uranus sets a backdrop for taking a break/vacation from the worries and pressures. Don’t scrimp on the fun or happiness quotient. Indulge, gift yourself. Don’t hesitate to spend some money on a good time or on one you love.
July 10: Mars exits Leo, Mercury enters Leo:
The sun tours Cancer through July 22, but Leo is a dominant archetype for the month ahead. Replenish yourself with some well-deserved time off from the daily grind of worries and pressures. Share a meal, carve out quality time to play, enjoy a performance, have a laugh, catch a sunset or a sunrise. The backdrop is set for making the most of the here and now.
(Mars exits Leo for Virgo on July 10. Mercury, ruler of Virgo, enters Leo on the same day, July 10. The sun enters Leo on July 22; Venus extends her tour of Leo through the middle of October.)
What is the source of your happiness, your success, your sense of well-being? How far is the reach to your own gold standard of living it, loving it, and bettering your best? While Mercury and Venus continue their creative enterprise in Leo, the sunshine archetype, Mars in Virgo will keep striving toward filling the gap. There’s always room for improvement!
June 5 to Oct 8: Venus in Leo (retrograde cycle July 22 to Sept 2):
Showing up for yourself first and foremost is the key to fulfillment. Venus in Leo is a wonderful transit for gifting yourself more, for enjoyments, pleasure pursuits, creative endeavours, and for lovers. Children gain more spotlight attention too (inner child included). Venus in Leo is an opportune transit for expressing how you feel, and for feeling the love.
From July 22 to Sept 2, Venus will travel retrograde in Leo. This time-frame sets a rich backdrop for realigning with your beating heart, for tuning in to yourself with greater clarity. Is your emotional or financial investment worthwhile? What is in your best interests? What do you really want? Take time to listen to the voice that now speaks from the depth of your soul. Feel it, don’t bury it. One way or another, Venus retrograde will put you back in touch, with yourself, with things and folks of significance, that you love, value, and/or cherish.
It’s all about the vibes. When Venus travels retrograde, it magnifies the signals you send out and thus, your ability to attract. It creates a more potent calling forth of your special destiny and of karmic recall. As such, relationships that begin under Venus retrograde often incorporate a sense of déjà vu and tend to fast-track a deep dive involvement. The karmic recall can be of the nature of fruition or of the unfinished past (of this lifetime or one past). Should you choose to end a relationship, it is primarily because of a need to be your own best lover, rather than to give yourself away for a less than desired or deserved return. The same is true should of the other party decide to call it quits. Self interests (or self interests?) can be a deal breaker.
Typically, Venus transits a sign in just under four weeks. Due to the retrograde cycle, Venus extends her tour of Leo through mid October. This transit provides a long window of opportunity for sorting out what’s in your heart, for attracting that which you desire the most, and for enhancements of all kinds. The transit gives you an extended period to claim spotlight attention, and/or to enjoy a successful run.
Venus will end her 9 month evening cycle (yin) and begin her nine month morning apparition cycle (yang) during her retrograde tour. From now through August 13, Venus will be on a potent finishing, seeding, and preparatory phase. On August 13, Venus retrograde forms an inferior conjunction with the sun. The inferior conjunction is the start of a new 18 month attraction and manifesting cycle. It is a time for action. (Ancients would launch war campaigns on this new Venus cycle as the prospects for success were enhanced.)
Side note: An inferior conjunction happens when Venus is travelling retrograde and is closest to the earth. i.e. earth, Venus, sun. A superior conjunction happens when Venus is in direct motion and on the far side of the sun (earth, sun, Venus).
There is one more item to mention. Venus retrograde is also a mortality archetype. As such, the cycle can see souls who are ready to transition take their leave of this incarnation.
July 17: New Moon in Cancer; Karmic Axis on a Sign Shift:
July 17, the new moon in Cancer continues the themes above regarding self care and the seeding of optimum conditions for creating more nourishing/fulfilling relationships, and for the promotion of personal wellbeing and success. Mercury/Jupiter (square) is ideal for travel, vacation, playtime, entertainment, for exploring options, spreading your wings or your message. The transit can increase optimism, hopefulness, and a sense of adventure. The action and motivation is in high gear from July 20 to 23 thanks to the following run of transits: July 20: Mars/Saturn (opposition), Sun/Neptune (trine); July 21: sun/Pluto opposition; July 22: Venus retrograde, sun into Leo; July 23: Chiron retrograde, Mercury/Uranus (square).
The north and south nodes of the moon change signs every 18 months. These sensitive points are focal points of action. In general terms, the transiting nodes set up an 18 month “subject du jour” regarding collective and personal life circumstances. For the past 18 months, the nodal axis has moved through Scorpio and Taurus, the survival axis. Over this period, you have likely taken a deep dive into some inner questioning, soul searching, and confronting of shadow. At the same time, the nodal axis trigger has prompted a deeper dive your evaluation process and your relationship to yourself.
As of July 17, the nodes move into Libra and Aries. For the next 18 months, this transit prompts a test drive on new ways of being in relationship, with everyday undertakings, and with self. Note that eclipses occur in relationship to the transiting nodal axis. The Libra archetype puts added emphasis on social trends, social diversity, politics, alliances, and matters of diplomacy. Libra seeks balance, cooperation, and co-creative partnerships, but often it can produce relationship enmeshment or the one-side of give and take. The Aries end of the equation sets up new instincts, impulses, and desires. It intensifies the experiential track, prompting new personal discovery, and the breaking of new personal ground. The Aries north node also intensifies the fight for freedom, independence, personal rights, and justice. It will push each of us to find courage, to take the initiative to be first to make the change, to stand as a group of one if needs be. The Aries/Libra dichotomy can dial up the conflict of self versus other, or what I need from myself, and what I need from you/them. Sometimes it takes an extreme to counter an extreme. As we move through the next 18 months, the nodal axis and the rest of the planetary backdrop aim to accelerate the creative process regarding relationships at all levels (finances included) and to set a foundation for achieving a better equilibrium and win/win.
To recap: for the next 18 months the transiting karmic (nodal) axis in Libra/Aries will put the priority attention on showing up for yourself in relationship to your world in a better balanced, more reflective, and self-honoring way. It will accelerate a self discovery process that will simultaneous prompt the breaking of old patterns and the seeding of fertile new ground, regarding both personal (self to self) and relationship interaction (me to you/us/them).
ARIES March 19/20 – April 19
Coinciding with the new moon in Cancer on July 17, the karmic axis/nodal axis shift into Aries and Libra marks the next 18 months for significant evolution regarding key relationships, self to self included. Expect to test drive a new way of interfacing with others, at the personal level, regarding your social life/social world, dealings with the public and regarding your exposure to the world in motion.
What do you want, what do you need? What’s best? Are you getting the goods out of your involvements? Expect also to be on a significant fast-track regarding your own self discovery process. Expect for instincts to get stronger, and perhaps more insistent. You’ll find your impulses and reaction time to be quick on the uptake too. Your powers of observation can sharpen. You can find yourself even more attuned and alert, especially if you have the wisdom of objectivity and can take a step back to step out of your own way rather than let heated emotions or the heat of the moment get the better of you.
Through October, Venus in Leo puts spotlight attention on loves and lovers, in other words on the matters and people that have your heart, that make your world go ‘round, that give meaning to your existence. Children and lovers are top of the list, as is also your heart’s most cherished desire. Shortly after the nodes switch signs, Venus, (ruler of the south node) begins a retrograde tour in the sign of Leo. This backtrack helps you to get back in touch with yourself and your beating heart. What brings you passion, joy, and reward? What/who do you love? Do you feel gifted by life or burdened by it? If the latter, what change is necessary for you create greater success, to live with more fulfillment?
From July 22 to Sept 2, watch for an intensification regarding karmic recall and fated circumstances or destiny at play. Venus retrograde sends out specific signals and therefore attracts in specific ways. Karmic replay can provide an opportunity to advance something that is unfinished from either the past of this life or another. Venus retrograde and the nodal axis shift to Libra/Aries sets the backdrop for the surfacing of karmic contracts that are ripe and ready for their moment. It is also a time to set conscious intention toward showing up for yourself, showing up for others, and for meeting with greater success and reward. Needless to say, you are on the threshold of a very important passage of time.
TAURUS April 19 – May 20
The karmic axis is finishing up in your sign through July 17 and moving to another sub-chapter in your ongoing evolution. Fresh potential is on the horizon for the next 18 months. It will be up to you to identify these new opportunities and to make full use of them. Know there will be a need for some letting go or surrendering to do first to create enough space/room for something more to come in.
Venus retrograde can reconnect you with your past in some significant way. Perhaps it is an option to move back home or to return to a place you have lived previously. There are many ways Venus retrograde could play out for you. It could take you through a karmic chapter with a key family member. The nature of karmic replay can fall into the category of fruition, repetition or a combination of both. Either way, see it for the exceptional opportunity that it is. Venus retrograde can see you consider whether you want children. If one is born (or adopted) during this cycle, the connection is that of reconnecting with someone special from another lifetime. Getting back in touch/healing your inner child may also be a soul priority. Take the time to go within, to do your inner work, to find yourself again. Venus retrograde loans you extra time to launch a new relationship with yourself. Know that now through the end of the year constitutes a very important foundation phase.
GEMINI May 20 – June 20
Whether you have been thinking about it or actively putting it into play, the karmic axis sign shift signals a lifestyle change that will speed up the process of your reinvention. The next 18 months can introduce you to new people, fresh ideas, new trends, and new ways of making your way in the world (regarding career, community, social groups, etc.). Special people can enter your life. An instant recognition or connection is a clue to the importance of the calling forth. On the other hand, there can be a parting of ways. This can happen for many reasons – a new career or relationship involvement for example. Kids can leave home to start independent lives, or perhaps it is you that is starting a new independence track. Venus retrograde can accelerate transition for those who reach their own time has come moment.
New enterprises and creative projects are also well aligned with the nodal axis shift and Venus on tour through Leo. Venus retrograde can see you resume with someone or something. Even so, there is likely to be something new in the mix, even if it is simply your own perception, seeing in a new light, or thinking along new lines. Venus retrograde can prompt you to consider options or relationship involvements that you might have nixed previously. You can find you are suddenly attracted to subjects, activities, or people that are not in keeping with your usual. If it is not for you, you might not even clue in to begin with. Venus retrograde is an efficiency expert in terms of what is and is not of value for you to take on. It sets up a subconscious filtering or zero-in process. You’ll immediately gravitate to what holds interest, relevance, or merit, while the rest will simply fall by the wayside. When this happens, know it is your soul that is directing the show.
CANCER June 20 – July 22
You could go back, but it is never the same. In fact, it could be a whole new ball game. The karmic axis shift to Aries and Libra can operate in a myriad of ways. It could be a matter of going back to go forward, of repeating or retracing steps to fill in the gap or to make a good thing better yet. One way or another, over the next 18 months, the past can be a significant springboard for moving you forward. Same mistake twice? No way. You are older and wiser now.
A feature of karmic axis shift can be the need to revisit family or family dynamics. The awareness of how those family dynamics have been projected or played out in your adult life takes you a long way forward in the resolution of those dynamics. Perhaps there is benefit in opening the lines of communication. Most importantly, it is important for you to be in conversation with yourself.
Venus retrograde is a time to regroup and reassess. Is there a way to improve your finances, your material status, or your lot in life? This transit amplifies inner hearing. When you listen up, what is it that you hear from deep within? Venus retrograde is an important time for self reflection. On another note, Venus retrograde can help you to become more resourceful and resilient. You may discover a special gift, capacity, or talent that you did not recognize you had/have.
Venus in Leo (to mid October) can enhance fertility prospects for those looking to conceive. If conception or birth happens during Venus retrograde, you can anticipate a special soul is about to make their entrance into your life. Same goes for a new love, or a new creative enterprise. In other words, Venus retrograde in Leo sets a backdrop for your special destiny to make its presence known.
LEO July 22 – August 22
You may find your future is moving in a new direction. If it isn’t of your conscious choosing or design, know that it is one that your soul is hankering to explore. The next 18 months calls for you to be a pioneer, and risk taker. Do not hesitate to take the lead, call the shot, or call the spade. Courage and initiative can net a great payoff. Instincts will start to speak louder. Make sure to listen up, and to follow the advice of your soul. Ideally, the next 18 months is a time to collaborate or to partner up, but also to keep your individuality intact, to create a healthy degree of separateness. In other words, aim to maintain a well-defined line between ours and mine. To have something on the go/to do that is yours and yours alone (and vice versa) is an essential ingredient to a healthy partnership.
Bad hair day? No way. Venus in Leo bestows her grace on you for an extended time. You are the chosen one through mid October. Sought for or not, under this transit, you can be an attention getter. As such it is an appropriate time to grab spot-light attention, to call in favours, to put in your request to the universe, to ask for you what you want.
Venus in Leo puts a magnetic energy field around you that is especially attractive. When Venus tours retrograde (July 23 to Sept 2) that vibrational force field sends the signal out in a very specific way. What is meant to be, will be. The rest is not relevant to the here and now. Know that you will attract only those individuals and situations that are on the same frequency. A tuning fork, know that Venus retrograde is especially dynamic/potent in terms of karmic recall.
VIRGO August 22 – September 22
Mars tenants Virgo from July 10 to August 27. Look to this transit to provide fresh incentive. Mercury enters Leo on this same day. Along with the lengthy tour of Venus in Leo (through mid October) the planetary backdrop is set for getting back in touch with what is in keeping with your better interests.
The karmic axis sign switch will spend the next 18 months helping you to get a better fix on what is essential and desirable. This nodal axis influence will strengthen inner resolve and help you to home in on what’s at the core of being. Regarding financial prospects, key relationships, creative endeavours, and most importantly resourcing from within – what do you have to work with? What are you working for and toward? Over the next 18 months, you are going to get a much better fix on your assets and resources (personal and material), on where your intimate relationship is going, and on the direction forward. For some it may be a time to sign a contract (actual or karmic). This can be a time of a major financial, career, or personal life undertaking (marriage, start a family, real estate investment, or independence initiatives such as starting a business, entrepreneurial enterprises). Survival matters (legacies and inheritance included) also gain priority attention (financial/material, biological, fertility, health related).
Venus, in Leo (through mid October) and in retrograde (July 23 to Sept 2), sets a backdrop to get yourself better prepared for what comes next. You may feel this as an extended incubation and gestation time-frame. Try not to jump too far ahead. Mercury will take a retrograde tour in Virgo from August 23 to September 15. If you jump in prematurely, Mercury retrograde will show you the error of your ways. If you take the time to feel your way along, Mercury retrograde and the rest of the stars will help you to qualify your best course of action.
LIBRA September 22 - October 22
As of the new moon on July 17, the karmic axis will begin an 18-month tour through Libra and Aries. This will place added emphasis on the breaking of new ground regarding relationships at all levels (karmic contracts included). Through conflict, choice, or necessity, you will be prompted to become more assertive and decisive. An equal and balanced relationship requires taking turns in the driver’s seat. There are times to put your own needs first, rather than to always give, yield, or accommodate.
Now or any time over the next 18 months, someone new could make an appearance in your life. A sense of déjà vu or instant rapport is a clue to the past life recall and the importance of this individual or of circumstances in play. What you meet up with could be temporary or long lasting. Either way, the experience will be of significant impact.
Lastly, the karmic axis cycle could prompt you toward an ending, a fresh start, and a lifestyle reinvention. Independence, more freedom, more choice -yes, it is a good direction forward.
Venus, your ruler, tenants Leo through October. This lengthy stay is due to the retrograde cycle which begins on July 23 and extends to Sept 2. Express from your heart, do what you love and watch the great feedback that comes your way. Time is a gift, spend it well. Venus retrograde can see you tap from a creative wellspring. This can be a confidence building, success and reward generating transit. Too, it can set the stage for significant personal and lifestyle reinvention. Dare to be different, dare to be uniquely you, to live it your way.
SCORPIO October 22 - November 21
For the next 18 months, the karmic axis shift puts added attention on the shortfalls, on making necessary improvements, and on staying a step ahead, especially regarding work and health related matters. A new approach, angle, or schedule could provide a better solution. A new job, line of work or health undertaking could spell improvement too. Perhaps you need fresh eyes on it. Don’t hesitate to consult with a specialist or to hire someone new to help or advise you. On another note, what you don’t know now, you’ll know soon enough. Watch for potentials to unfold and reveal themselves in due course.
From July 23 to September 2, Venus tours retrograde in Leo. Use this transit to step away from the spotlight to reassess career goals and personal priorities, to address how to refortify or rebuild your reputation, your material status, your respect in your chosen field, or your claim to fame. Take time now to feel your way along and use the fall to set the game plan into action.
Use this lengthy Venus in Leo transit to give spotlight attention to where it is due, and/or where it serves you best. Quality time with loved ones or a special someone can be worth gold. Through the middle of October, aim to gain favour, to build and/or to refortify your relationship with a parent or authority figure. It is also a time to pull back from trying to control things and to give others the opportunity to step up and do their part.
Career wise or personally, Venus in Leo can see you reach a milestone, gain recognition or accreditation. It can also be time to celebrate a special anniversary, perhaps even to say “I do.”
SAGITTARIUS November 21 – December 21
The karmic axis sign change to Aries/Libra is of benefit to your sign. Shifting the attention off health, work, and problem solving, look to this next 18 months to set a backdrop for fresh opportunity. A change of scenery, pace, or lifestyle can be well timed. Risk is in the mix, but for the most part, you’ll thrive on it. The next 18 months can be a time of important firsts. Take the new you out for a test drive. Don’t hesitate to try something or someone new on for size. A time of accelerated reinvention is at hand.
Is it just you on a roll, or is it something more? The future is looking brighter and full of promise. Through middle of October, Venus in Leo bolsters opportunity, confidence, creativity, along with increased prospects for luck and love. Special attention can come your way. Fame and popularity can grow. Prospects for travel, relocation, publishing, broadcasting, exhibiting, and education are on the upswing too. The world loves you, a special someone loves you too. July 23 to Sept 2, Venus retrograde can put fate or destiny into play in some significant way. It is a time to let the world spin on its own for awhile while you tend to personal life priorities. Venus retrograde is a time to reassess. If you have jumped in too quick, the cycle can take you through a questioning period. Look to Mars and Mercury in Virgo (including Mercury retrograde from the end of August to mid Sept to help you sort out what’s necessary and/or left unfinished, to correct, refine, renovate, to adjust, to tackle improvements or upgrades where necessary.
CAPRICORN December 21 - January 20
Feeling at a crossroad? Priorities are shifting, the reality is too. Now through November, the karmic axis keeps you focused on sorting it out. The work/life balance is top of the list. How can you carve out more time and freedom for yourself while still meeting obligations and showing up where you need to. You are likely to feel the need to carve out a greater degree of separation between your obligations and your personal needs, how you show up for others and how you show up for yourself. For the next 18 months, the karmic axis sets a backdrop for breaking new ground regarding your home and family life, your professional and material status, – and most importantly, regarding how you live with yourself.
How the influence of the karmic axis plays out will be highly individualistic. For example, you may be at the start of an independence chapter. That could mean moving out on your own for the first time, being newly single, or at the start of the empty nest chapter. It can be time to launch your own business, start a new career, a new collaborative venture, or considering retirement. Perhaps you are at the threshold of starting a family, buying your first home, or choosing to go your separate ways. No matter how the stars play out for you, this next 18 months accelerates change regarding your inner and outer world realities.
Venus tenants Leo through the middle of October. From July 23 to Oct 2, Venus retrograde will be a time to reassess your quality of life, this at all levels, especially regarding health, wealth, and primary relationships (i.e., significant other). Are you thriving? Happy? In love? Are you satisfied with the choices you have made? Is your will up to date? Are you planning to start a family? Do your kids need more attention or financial support? Someone of significance can enter or exit your life. Venus retrograde sets wheels in motion for a revisit of karmic circumstances/contracts (relive/repetition, fruition or a combination of both).
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18/19
The karmic axis sign shift sets up a positive 18-month personal growth and opportunity cycle. Watch for fresh prospects and options to appear, perhaps with a sense of divinely timed synchronicity. Aim to expand your business and public profile, your social life, your knowledge base, your repertoire. Don’t hesitate to relocate for better opportunity. This karmic axis backdrop can stimulate fresh ideas, perceptions, conversations, and activities. From involved to single or vice versa, the next 18 months could accelerate a lifestyle change.
Its time to have more fun, to pump up on pleasure and entertainment, to aim for more of life’s rewards. Your social life and love life can gain a boost from Venus, on an extended tour of Leo through the middle of October. While in this sign, Venus puts spotlight attention on how you show up in relationship to your social world and regarding one-on-one interaction. Are you thriving? Are you enjoying your career, your life, your involvements? How can you enhance your success and happiness quotient? Are you ready to welcome a new love, to pursue a new creative project or passion, or to create a lifestyle overhaul? How can you make that good thing better yet? July 23 to Sept 2, Venus retrograde will take you through a check-in with yourself. On the vibrational or frequency level, Venus retrograde intensifies your magnetic field. As such it is a potent time of attraction and of the animation of contracts (karmic, actual) that are ripe and ready for a next chapter. A sense of fate or destiny in play can accompany circumstances. Know it is a clue to the importance of the calling forth.
PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20
Now through November keeps the spotlight attention on facing crossroads and thresholds, and on acclimatizing to an evolving new reality. For the next 18 months, the karmic axis sign change puts added attention on finances and investments, on resources and reserves (energy, material; personal and emotional included). This karmic axis backdrop can find you better attuned, more perceptive, and astute.
It can sharpen your skill set and response time regarding spotting and taking advantage of the opportunities of the moment. Overall, the next 18 months or so sets you up to break important new ground. Essentially, a new you is in the works. As time moves forward, you’ll come to see more evidence of this fact.
Can you make that good thing better yet? Are you happy at the job? Are you feeling healthy, are you living with a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle? Are you optimizing on the opportunities of the moment? To mid October, Venus in Leo will keep you striving to make improvement to your everyday reality, where you desire and need it the most. July 23 to Sept 2, Venus retrograde can keep you questioning and reassessing. On a mundane note, Venus retrograde is a good time to pull back from over activity and time wasters. Take a break or a vacation. Be your own best lover. Aim to gift yourself with more quality time for simple pleasures. Allow more time to heal, to replenish, and for the things and people that light you up and bring joy. Life is what you make of it.
