Friday August 2nd
Everything we wish to create in our world gestates inside of us. Our essence has ripened into a larger version of itself during the year’s turnings. Now we harvest both the fruits of Her womb and the direct knowing of our own. The natural world is thriving with excitement and magic, and yet we feel aware that everything will die soon.. . .

Saturday—Venus into Leo
Venus is our relationships, love, sense of beauty and empathy. When is firey Leo we experience creativity, charisma, warmth, and enthusiasm. Gather with others to celebrate and share bounty.
Sunday—Moon sextile Mars
The moon is our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche. Mars is our will to act, initiative and ambition. Do you need to work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.
Tuesday—Moon conjunct Mercury
The moon our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche is conjunct Mercury our communication, travel and thought. Do you need to think? Talk? Travel? Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer.
Wednesday—Moon conjunct Venus & Mercury goes Direct
Our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche interacts with our relationships, love, sense of beauty and empathy. Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
New Moon in Leo
We enter the heart of Leo season as Venus joins the Sun in Leo on Saturday. It’s time to be sybaritic, peel our grapes and float in the water, and have long leisurely post-sunset dinners on the porch. Engage the gracious generosity of Leo to be hospitable. Enjoy the Leo panache as it adds an extra glow to performance arts and all the fruits of cultur Soak it up, because the rest of life may take some patience This is the last week of Mercury retrograde, and the Mercury retrograde follies tend to thicken right before it turns direct. Mercury stations, or appears to hold still in the sky as it prepares to turn direct next Wednesday. Along with this slowdown, activating Mars forms challenging quincunx to both Saturn and Neptune and adds to this frustration. Misunderstandings, miscalculations, drifting attention, and technical and mechanical snafus; the dings and boomerangs of outrageous fortune can begin to pile up and wear us down.
Add to this the propensity to take things personally, and with a melodramatic flare, and it could be a fun week. With the Sun and Venus both in Leo this week we’ll tend to think and speak and hyperbole. It’s not just bad, it’s the worst, it’s not just good, it’s fabulous. This Leo line up can bring over-the-top melodramatic, and sometimes fabricated, comments to our newsfeed, we can enjoy while taking it all with a grain of salt. But just because someone acts out or speaks with real flair doesn’t mean there are aren’t real feelings underneath. Pay attention to real feelings and look for the truth underneath, reward the need for connection without rewarding bad behavior. . . .
