Leo

You seed your future with July’s responses. July 1 begins the Mars transit of Leo that happens once every two and one-half years. With the next day’s solar eclipse heightening insight, think back. What happened when you were too forceful at the beginning? Did things work to your advantage or not? Might you want to change that last approach (just saying).

On the third, Cancer Venus wears her money hat, if you want fortunate and tangible things upon which to build.

July 4 is a lucky day to search, send out resumes, and pencil-in meeting dates.

As the sun opposes wise Saturn on the ninth, be alert for small hints that herald turnarounds in situations. The next day’s solar trine with Neptune can help dissolve barriers.

Daring Leo Mars squaring Uranus on July 11 asks why fight alone when cooperation is the best move?

On the sixteenth, rely on your enhanced good instincts after the Capricorn lunar eclipse.

On July 22, the Leo sun says, “Birthday soon!” Set goals for the year ahead.

Action hero Mars trines lucky Jupiter on the twenty-fifth, and the aspect is a moneymaker for the next four days. On July 27, lucky you with Venus in Leo!

The month’s last day is lucky with a fortunate new moon. Lay the groundwork. Signs point to big changes next month.
