Have you been searching for the perfect combination of optimistic expression, grounded love, and eccentric release? Then you’d better hold onto your metaphorical hat because this week, the stars bring three radically different transits that somehow blend together to shake things up and help us let go of anything no longer serving our purpose!
It all begins on July 21st when Venus, the planet of love and beauty, moves into grounded, practical Virgo. When Venus was in Leo, we valued grand, sweeping gestures and maybe even a bit of drama in relationships. However, Venus, when in this Earth sign, urges us to show our feelings through acts of service and purposeful actions. Romance takes on a more steady, stable tone now.
The Sun enters fiery Leo on July 22nd, bringing that same positive, outgoing, and extroverted energy synonymous with this sign.
This transit helps you step out of that shell that Cancer season may have brought on, allowing your personality to shine. It’s a time to be creative, be outspoken, and let your inner child step out into the sunlight and play.
Finally, on July 23rd, we experience a Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius. This Air sign eases the emotional pressure that accompanies the Full Moon – a time of emotional release.
This is the time of the month to let go of any pains, upsets, arguments, or even habits and relationships of the past lunar cycle that are no longer serving you.
July 19 – July 25 is a Week to Serve, Shine, & Shed
Venus in Virgo stirs up the kind of loving compassion that can only be fulfilled by showing your love through acts of service – when you’re there for those you love, you’ll feel better about both yourself and your bond with them.
The Leo Sun tells you to shine and let yourself be as expressive as you feel motivated to be! And the Aquarius Full Moon reminds you to let go of any excess metaphorical weight for optimum growth and self-realization.
This week brings many varied energies, but they are all useful in their own way. Going with the flow and following your intuition are particularly useful when navigating such a dynamic week of transits.
