July Monthly Horoscope - Leo


Dear Leo, in the first week of July, the Sun, Jupiter and Neptune are forming a Great Trine in your water houses (Sun-Jupiter trine on the 5th and Sun-Neptune trine on the 8th), so make the most of it by turning inwards and tending to your emotions through meditation or relaxation with loved ones. Starting with the 10th you can breathe easily, as Jupiter going direct in your 4th house can dissipate tensions and blockages that might have been influencing your family, home and inner life since February. After what was meant to be uncovered was revealed (whether it's a childhood complex or a family situation that was blocking your growth), things are finally picking up the pace towards progress! On the 12th, the Cancer Solar Eclipse brings into focus your inner world, your ability to dream, to connect to the Source and to offer compassion. You might feel uneasy and uncertain at this time, emotional yet unable to pinpoint what's bothering you. This is the start of a new cycle of introspection and deeper connection to yourself, and beginnings- especially Eclipses!- often feel like being suspended in thin air. Trust the invisible, even if it's not always light. The week between the 14th and the 21st will have you making adjustments as relationship-oriented Mars (7th house) is inconjunct comfort-loving Venus (2nd house) and self-expressive Mercury (1st house) is inconjunct service-oriented Pluto (6th house). It’s best if you can find different outlets in your life for each of these energies.The Sun entering your sign on the 22nd heralds a month when self-expression and self-image become even more poignant in your life than usual! While you're reveling in the spotlight, be careful to keep your ego in check as well. Mercury retrograding in your 1st house starting with the 26th also marks a time of possible misunderstandings, when how you think you come across might be miles away from how others see you. Make sure to communicate with honesty and warmth and think twice before making any major life or self-image decisions. The Lunar Eclipse on the 27th shows you how your relationships and partnerships have grown since this February. It's the end of a cycle where your love for self-expression and self-direction could encounter a shadow: the part of you that is dependent on others and is influenced by cultural and social norms. Relationship conflict around the themes of dependence/independence and warmth/distance might not be unexpected on this Full Moon, so arm yourself with patience, awareness and readiness to solve possible disputes through cooperation. There is truth to both sides.
