The week starts off with a Sun Mercury conjunction in the sign of Leo, with Mercury retrograde. This along with the fact the planet Neptune is generating a lot of energy in the here and now means we can have some confusion in our lives. We do have a constant barrage of misinformation, both intentional and unintentional, so its hard sometimes to sort out what is real and what is not real. This is not the best week to make a major decision or choice, if you can put it off until after the Full Moon your more apt to make good choices, or at least choices you wont’ later regret.
We leave the month of July with a feeling of hope, Venus and Saturn are creating a good energy between them, it’s a time for cooperation and planning. It’s a window of opportunity to get things done both on a personal level and the world stage. So we may find we can work with others that in the past we could not, or we may be able to take our differences and come to a compromise. Jupiter in Gemini is helping us communicate in a much more effective and less confrontational way. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has had misunderstanding or disagreements they would like to rectify.
We enter the month of August with a Full Moon, a time to let go of anything that no longer serves you. The Full Moon occurs at 11:28 PM EST and will have the strongest effect one the fire and air signs. Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Leo energy is all about your sense of self, how do you view yourself, if its not positive its time to give that up, self love opens us up to love from and towards others. Give up self doubt and embrace self acceptance. Always keep in mind those uncomfortable feelings that can pop up during a Full Moon need attention, things you avoid and hide from on an emotional level are activated when the Moon is Full.
The first two weeks in August contain some complicated planetary energy that involve the Moon’s nodes, Mercury and Neptune. All of this together can create both difficult weather patterns, or a time of storms, especially ones with winds and rain. It can also mean travel is not easy, so if it’s a time you are taking a vacation prepare yourself for the unexpected and changes or delays.
The week ends with a mixed energy, we all feel a little better the heavy energy of Uranus and Pluto is in the background and Jupiter is in the foreground. So that feeling of things getting better is starting to feel right, but its with caution and hesitation.
