The Sun makes its triumphal entry into Leo on 22 July with a bang, thanks to a waxing fixed T-Square with retrograde Mars in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. Tempers are probably going to be short, and people will be tempted to act out far more than usual. Practice your favorite calming techniques in order to avoid getting caught up in a never ending disagreement . . . fixed signs can hang on grudges far past the point of no return.
On the plus side, the Sun begins its journey in Leo trine the adventurous Sagittarius Moon, infusing the atmosphere with a spirit of optimism. This suggests a positive attitude can make a big difference during Leo Season.
Additional support comes from a quietly soothing, waxing trine between cautious Venus in Virgo and dark horse Pluto in Capricorn. I love this Venus-Pluto trine in earth for helping us make sensible financial decisions as well as ones concerning our love lives.
Another great waxing trine in earth is the one between Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. This one can help us keep our cool and work hard to find creative ways to step back from making rash moves. Apply liberal doses of common sense whenever possible.
This might not be the most playful Leo Season but we can still find time to relax and enjoy life. The biggest jolts will happen the first week. After that, the Leo Sun gets to mellow out for the most part, so work on maintaining a positive attitude with an open heart . . . and channel any frustrations into creative projects.
