Leo July horoscope
SUMMARY Leo JULY HOROSCOPE:
A solar eclipse sweeps new energy into your 12th house of closure, rest and endings, and Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector could mean you have some cleaning up to do before any new beginnings. A lunar eclipse in your work and health zone could bring a job or health matter to a head.
EXTENDED Leo JULY HOROSCOPE:
July continues to focus on closure, rest, and endings, as Mercury, Mars, the Sun (your ruler), Venus, and the North Node glide through your 12th house all month and make lovely aspects to Neptune in your financial sector, Uranus in your career zone, and each other.
In fact, July 2nd brings a beautiful solar eclipse to your closure house at 10 degrees Cancer, which could see you take steps to close out a chapter of your life.
This eclipse will conjunct the fated (and lucky!) North Node in your 12th house, oppose Saturn in your work and health zone, sextile Uranus in your career sector, and trine Neptune in your financial house.
It seems you may end a job or assignment at this time, and if so, you might get paid handsomely for your work! It’s also possible you sell a project, product, or service or receive money from family or as a bonus.
You have some really excellent aspects this month to close out old situations, jobs, and outworn items, so look to the following days to make your moves: July 8th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th.
With Saturn and Pluto opposing your 12th house and several of these planets, however, you could encounter some challenges with a work or health issue. You might catch a summer cold or flu, or perhaps you have trouble with an employee, assistant, or co-worker. Tricky days include July 4th, 14th, 17th, and 21st.
Keep a special eye on July 9th, when the Sun (your ruler) will conjunct the North Node in your 12th house but oppose Saturn in your work and health zone. Although having your ruler conjunct such an important point could prove beneficial, the presence of Saturn opposite your Sun could make you feel glum today.
In fact, there's actually ANOTHER eclipse- this one lunar- in Capricorn and your work and health sector on July 16th. This is a very interesting eclipse, given that it is conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. Now, Saturn is a tricky planet to judge, as he can bring both very challenging and very positive developments in his wake. On the one hand, Saturn is very stabilizing. On the other, his lessons can be tough, and jarring, and pretty much final. The fact that Saturn rules Capricorn and is currently transiting Capricorn, does at least help us out a bit!
Your 6th house rules work, health, subordinates, pets, and service. It seems that one of these things could come to a head this month.
You might end a job or assignment this month, perhaps even deciding to enter a new field altogether. It’s also possible that you have to fire an assistant or employee who is not performing well.
Alternatively, you may need to address a health or dental issue, perhaps even having an operation or surgery.
With Saturn’s involvement, whatever it is could either be heavy and serious- or simply mean that any new job is serious and comes with authority.
The other big thing to note this month is Mercury's retrograde in Leo and then Cancer from July 7th to 31st. Leo rules your 1st house of identity and personality, and Cancer rules your 12th house of closure. Though you seem to be itching to move forward with new plans, it seems the universe needs you to take care of some unfinished business first!
Unfortunately, as you know, this is not the best time to sign agreements or make decisions, so try to keep this in mind around eclipse time. It seems you may be forced into making decisions anyway.
I think that whatever news the solar eclipse brings to you will force you to reshuffle other aspects of your life- perhaps work or health- related aspects- and Mercury’s retrograde will help you make changes. If possible try not to commit to anything too permanent during this time, as information will be changing rapidly (although with the lunar eclipse conjunct Saturn, it seems hard to avoid permanence this month!)
Don’t worry- planets are trickling into Leo in preparation for your birthday month in August. Watch July 11th and 29th, when Mercury and then the Sun (your ruler) in your sign will square Uranus in your 10th house of career. Career matters may prove challenging at this time.
Luckily, Mars will make a nice, juicy trine to Jupiter on July 25th, linking your identity and love zones, which brings very good luck to all things love, romance, child-related, and fun.
Next month, there will be a new moon in Leo on August 1st, marking your own personal new year! Hurrah for new beginnings!
