July Monthly Horoscope - Leo
Dear Leo, starting from the 1st there’s a fresh surge of energy in your life. Starting new things, taking initiative, manifesting your will, fighting for what you stand for are things that come naturally to you during this time! However, you also have a period of introversion around the Solar Eclipse on the 2nd when you’ll benefit most from being with yourself- relaxing, meditating, making art. It can be a time when a new creative project, spiritual practice, belief or compassionate action, especially related to intuition and to children, can be born. You’re now challenged to trust your sensitive and dreamy side, even if you usually keep it hidden under the pressures of daily life. Now is a time when it might be easier to connect to the unseen, mystical part of life and to truly act upon the things that you believe in. Accept what comes into your life at this time, Leo, and take it one step at a time as you vibrate with the infinite love that supports us- whatever form it might take for you.
Starting with the 7th, Mercury retrogrades in your sign, asking you to think twice when you’re making any important decision about your life and to reflect before speaking, making sure that you’re doing it clearly and from the heart. It’s a time of rethinking and of redoing what isn’t working for you, Leo, in any area of life- work, relationships, hobbies, appearance or health.
Around the 8th, Chiron’s retrograde could bring up some old wounds related to your freedom or your beliefs. Stay mindful and trust your impulses towards growth, as well as your worldview- you can sense what is best for you. Around the 9th, things could be tense around matters of work, health, sacrifice, emotional difficulties, spirituality. Challenges that you encounter now can have a karmic undertone. You’re supported to go within and to see what is it – from this life or from others- that’s holding you back and to find your inner light despite the fact that the “real world” might not be too easy to handle right now (work, health, daily life matters). Around the 11th, you can explore your inner light- and darkness- through meditation, shadow work, rituals or art. It helps a lot if you take your time and stay open to messages from within.
On the 17th, the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse brings a moment of fulfillment and transformation when it comes to work, health, daily routines and habits, possibly through a promotion, a change of job, a release of unhealthy habits- events that might seem inevitable in your life at this point. Useful job or health information can be unveiled, helping you take the next step in these areas and let go of those structures that no longer serve you. Maybe you’re thinking of working as a freelancer or for a less power-greedy, corrupted company than your current one; maybe you’re learning how to take on more responsibility at work in a healthy way or to become more self-disciplined in your daily habits. However this looks for you, Leo- and it might be difficult for the time being, since these Eclipses activate themes linked to work and health, crises and sacrifice for you-, it’s a time of transformation towards better health and more authentic work. On the 18th, take advantage of a dreamy, creative, spiritual vibe that can help you continue what you’ve started around the 11th (meditation, shadow work); around the 21st, stay strong, yet open to change as there could be some intense moments in your relationships, especially karmic or work relationships. How much are you willing to sacrifice for others and where do you have to set your boundaries? It’s not an easy time, but deep transformations can take place.
Starting from the 22nd, your season is on! Enjoy the attention and the warmth of the summer that you need. During this time, you can benefit the most from a head-on, daring approach in anything that you do; you’re called to integrate masculine energy in the way that you express yourself, in your behavior and your appearance. Lady Luck might smile to you around the 25th when your fiery approach can serve you well in any new initiatives, especially in romance, education or creative matters. Be (temperately) bold, Leo, and you’ll win! Finally, on the 31st, the New Moon in your sign heralds that fresh start that’s been lurking around the corner all month- a new beginning in your life. It’s likely that you’ll be feeling more rebellious and independent during these days, wanting to take the reins of a situation and not let anyone else tell you what to do. Leo, stay confident, yet open and warm- the world is ready for you!
