Do you crave bright, warm energy that boosts confidence, fills your spirit with motivation, and intensifies creativity? Then get ready to let your light sparkle all around you because the stars are going big and bold this week!
We have three fiery transits that will trigger your imagination, help you take action towards your goals, and give you the confidence to put yourself out there in the world!
We begin with intellectual, mind-driven Mercury entering Leo on July 19th, bringing that trademark fiery Leo energy and allowing you to focus on the bigger picture and follow that which inspires you.
On July 20th, the Last Quarter Moon in Aries lights a spark within your spirit and encourages you to wrap up any loose ends before the upcoming New Moon. Yet, fierce and impassioned Aries can bring a sense of impulsivity or excitable moods.
Practice meditation and chakra work to promote the balance you’ll need now.
Finally, on July 22nd, the Sun enters the sign over which it rules, beloved Leo! Friendly, fiery Leo season is a positive, grand, and slightly dramatic period that encourages you to embrace your theatrical side.
Let your creativity soar, and be sure to practice plenty of activities that heal and delight your inner child.
It’s time to put your creative ideas and your shining personality out there this week!
July 18 – 24 is a Week to Shine Bright, Embrace the Warmth, & Trust Your Instincts
Leo energy is all around us, with both informative Mercury and the life-giving Sun moving into this fun, childlike sign. And despite the fact that you may prefer fun and creative activities, the Last Quarter Moon in Aries gives you just the right amount of energy to prepare yourself for the upcoming New Moon in Leo, taking place on July 28th.
It’s time to release old habits or toxic relationships and get ready to attract your deepest desires.
What can you let go of now that will set you up for a more peaceful future?
