Sun in Leo is on a mission of confidence, which is why it can seem to come on too strong. In this fixed sign, it won’t back down easily. Nor should it. Leo’s firmness allows it to consolidate what it started—a work of art, a garden, a child, a show, a legacy.
August’s Full and New Moons also come on strong. And, with active Mars vying for center stage as it aspects the outer planets, this August is not only about holding to our own mission, but working and fighting for it. Things may not always flow, but we can stand up for what we want, what we do and, with Jupiter in Mars-ruled Aries, what we believe.
Leo the lion likes to play, but with gladiator Mars in the arena, we’ll be more in its roaring mode. In politics, different players and groups will display their weapons and flex their biceps. People will feel strongly about the issues of the day, and it would be highly constructive to ask ourselves, can we get this intense about the issue of our life purpose or path?
Fortunately, sweet Venus radiates rays of harmony into an otherwise tough month. Among her connections, she aspects expansive Jupiter and mystical Neptune, increasing our love quotient, harmonizing our interactions, sparking angel connections, and enabling us to center in compassion even as we manifest the strength and courage that holding to our purpose requires.
The combination of feistiness and sweetness manifests from Day 1, when uncontainable Mars joins wild Uranus. There’s a potential for brilliant action combined with a foolhardy readiness to defy the rules. This aspect can facilitate shortcuts and embolden us to go where no man or woman has gone before.
Follow your instincts to try a new route—but before breaking the rules or stepping on someone’s toes as you rush through the side-door, try, try, to pause and for a moment consider the feelings of others. And then take an extra moment of care for ourselves and those with us, because the Mars-Uranus combo can be accident prone. While driving, arguing, or rushing to finish something, make a point of pausing to balance haste with caution.
This intrinsically surprising Mars-Uranus conjunction receives a dose of harmony in the form of a sextile from sweet Venus that will energize relationships and finance, and that perfects on Tuesday, August 2. We can get an exciting manifestation: keep your antennae tuned for opportunities, and be poised to move on them. Creative genius awakens; we can make amazing innovations in....
