Lucky Jupiter and “I’ve got your back babe” Venus travel in your income space and beam up to cell tower Uranus in your career zone. This astro-ray doesn’t come around often, so it’s time to make hay while the Sun shines! Other configurations bring a strong flow of emotional force and if you use this combination wisely it can take you to the peak of success! Hint: remember to stay in balance so your emotions carry you exactly where you want to be, versus carry you over the edge. July’s astro energy is very powerful for you with motivational Mars in your sign pumping up your brand for the first time in 2 years. Mars in Cancer maximizes healing energies and puts muscle into family situations. It’s a great time to get together with family and share healing love. On 7/1 your ruler the Moon is in Full phase in the sturdy sign of Capricorn which highlights your partnership zone. Partners help share the load and your relationships reflect the truth of who you are. Messenger Mercury enters Cancer on 7/8 (thru 7/23) bringing a refreshing flow of ideas.

Roll around your personal turf like the lion of your sign, then get up stretch and play! People will notice and want to join in with your glorious self. If you’ve been promoting your concepts or creations this energy highlights your brand with double flashing neon. If you are on a different track and don’t need (or care) for too much attention it’s also a good month to escape to inspiring locations to relax and rejuvenate. It’s a lovely time for a family vacation where deeper emotions have time and space to be shared. In fact for you Leos who have learned to tame your ego it is absolutely one of the best times ever! If you are one of those Leos who can’t see beyond your own rays, it might still feel good to you, but others are beginning to see through to your true nature and it’s not pretty. Of course if you are that kind of Leo, you won’t be reading this…but your mates may.
