DEAL WITH IT
This week you’ll find out who your friends are-and if you’re being a “friend” to yourself! There is so much going on -so many levels. Let’s start with Mercury entering Leo and teaming up with the Sun to bring out the most flamboyant behavior in all of us. It’s dynamic energy and we love this part of the summer! The Moon hits Aries that day and adds more enthusiasm to our moods. But this sunny energy takes a turn mid week.
There’s an inconjunct (a source of “irritation”)from Mercury to Jupiter and a change of luck as Jupiter moves back into Aquarius and this is where things get real. Or imaginary, depending on your perspective. Old pain points or things you thought were finished could resurface very quickly and events could flare up seemingly out of the blue.
Mars in opposition to retrograde Jupiter could bring out your fighting spirit and we may see events that have been building for a while suddenly explode. When situations aren’t brought to healthy conclusions, when there’s no closure or true compromise, the resentments seethe beneath the surface-waiting for a week just like this-and Leo energy loves drama. But as always, the purpose of the horoscopes I write is to give you practical, cosmic common sense to help you flow WITH not AGAINST the tide. So here’s how to handle these energies. Settle things. Either accept situations as they are, release them or the people you’re in conflict with, or figure out a better way to go head to head with a conflict you’ve been having for a while now.
A simple example of what this might look like is if you’ve been having difficulty communicating with your boss-you’ve felt like they’re micro managing you or being too hard on you. THIS week is the time to calmly, rationally meet with them (early in the week is best) and calmly, rationally (those two words are KEY), state how you feel. Don’t blame or shame, offer a solution. How is it that you DO prefer to be assigned tasks? Maybe you can work with different deadlines or a way of communicating with them so they feel as if you’re working on the assignments, without feeling like they have to check with you every 5 minutes and keep you on the defensive and distracted. Stay in the solution, otherwise you’re the problem. Now apply that to your relationship, family, friends, business, whatever you have that’s a source of overwhelm or stress.
Happy Birthday to our FABULOUS Leos who remind us of the beauty, strength and our ability to shine our light for the world to see!
Aries (March 21-April 20) Behind the scenes action puts you in a precarious place early in the week when you have to hold onto information you’re just busting to tell everyone. Just sit tight and think of what’s best for all. Over the weekend you can share this with those who need to know and start to move forward with your plans.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) There are lots of stops and starts on the job, which is not your favorite way to work, but your calm, rational demeanor will go a long way to smooth out any bumps. If you disconnect from the way others are reacting, and get into your creative energy, you’ll find an awesome solution to a problem and a way to gain some points with the boss.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Unraveling mysteries and sifting through gossip could be nothing more than a distraction now so choose carefully where you place your attention. There are some great opportunities to bring in more income with a cool new side hustle or extracurricular project at work so look for things like that rather than wasting your fabulous brain power.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) This week is full of surprises! Blasts from the past could shake up your comfy routines and if you’re single, this could include a romantic connection. A long trip down memory lane can also help you reframe a misunderstanding that you’ve blamed yourself for all these years. Listen, learn and let go.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Leos have a busier than usual week ahead. Avoid rushing into a big decision just to check another “to – do” off your list. This is your season, so while you can no doubt get what you want, you may just have to have a little patience and wait for it.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Get back to your old routines. Walking, working out, yoga, whatever floats your boat and gives you time to reconnect with yourself help you tune in to your intuition again. Set aside plenty of time to recharge and focus on your spiritual growth.
Libra (September 23-October 22) The group splinters. While you’ve been the one who’s managed to keep everything together, try not to take it personally as others decide to go renegade. Children have a special magic and spending quality time with them shifts your idea of what’s most important in life.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) A favorite charity calls you into action and you’re more than willing to step up to help. On another note, single Scorpios may reconnect with a romantic partner from the past and decide to give it another chance. Communication is everything now.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Nice week for Sag as you have plenty of energy for handling business on the home front. And with a nice trine from all that Leo energy to your house of inspiration, travel and spirituality you’re feeling more like yourself. Philosophical conversations and reality checks dot the week as you streamline your life and goals.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Immersing yourself in music and other art forms whether as a spectator or actually doing it yourself, will inspire the hell out of you. You’ve been crushing it when it comes to supporting yourself financially, but now it’s time to find another outlet that allows you to share a deeper creativity that’s been waiting to surface.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) The question you want to ask yourself all week is, “What’s really going on?”. Oh, and I don’t mean out in the world, I mean inside you. Your reactions/responses to seemingly little things are telling you a lot about where you can do some legit healing work. There’s some unfinished business in your heart and the sooner you get to the source, the more peace you’ll find. Be fearless.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) The best way I can describe your coming week, Pisces, is wavy. You’ll understand what I mean by the end of the week. It’s kind of up and down, so you’ll need to be hyper aware of when your energy is depleting and get the rest or just take a mental break from it all. This is actually not a bad week for you, and a good opportunity to learn to say no once in a while.
