Happy birthday, Leo!

Planets in show-stopping Leo add up to one thing – everything that happens this July is unmissable.

The Sun remains in sensitive and nurturing Cancer up until the 22nd. One of the most important and long term germinating new Moons appears in Cancer on the 5th. Not only does this mark the astrological start of Cancer’s new cycle, it is the first new moon to appear after the Solstice. New moons are always about new beginnings. Planting the seeds and initiating something. Because this one appears right after the year pivots, and we look to what we want to achieve or complete for the rest of it, this is probably one of the most quietly important new Moons of the year. Especially when it comes to taking actions around anything that supports/sustains us. See your New Moon in Cancer Moonscope for more.

Public image, our capacity to deliver on what we promise, and our belief we are the authors of our own destinies will be front of house on the 21st when a blue Moon appears in Capricorn. A ‘Blue’ Moon is when a full Moon occurs twice in a lunar month in the same sign. We had an early full Moon last month when the Sun first entered Cancer on Solstice Day. And now we have a second even more defining one just before the Sun leaves Cancer for Leo. Second chances to show our smarts appear. Bring it!

That scene-stealing, spotlight stellium in Leo will peak on the 22nd when we have the Sun, Mercury and Venus in the sign of royalty, children, sweet love, shining self-expression and all-on-show. As the planets pass into Leo, they oppose Pluto in Aquarius. Mercury on the 3rd, Venus on the 12th and the Sun on the 23rd. Aquarius is the sign of the collective. Hence, unlike what happens under an eclipse – when everything is covered up, what occurs now is unfiltered and in plain sight. Yes, it’s wonderful for getting ourselves noticed. Especially for pursuing our passions we may want to evolve into professions. Or grand gestures of love.

But what it also means is that anything and everything is now dragged out into plain sight. There’s no more pretence. Right in the middle of July, we have another important transit, and this one drags our values – those invisible assets that broadcast so much about who we really are – right into the spotlight. Mars and Uranus collide in Taurus – sign of money and values, on the 15th. Expect shocks, fluctuations, and real worth to be revealed. This goes for what we all stand for. The right stuff. The soul worth. A Leo will tell you reputation is EVERYTHING. And values and our ability to deliver or stand by these, are what form reputation. So, we could well see true worths exposed as well as those bankrupt when it comes to the value systems they have.

You dear sweet cosmic seeker, are worth far more. Integrity, the ability to keep our word, to back up what we say with appropriate action, to bring a good game rather than talk it – these are the souls who are revealed in all their 24 carat glowing glory. And there’s no confusion from this point onwards.

Birthday sign Leo should already have made their three wishes for what they want to have, appear, do or experience back in May when Jupiter entered their 11th house. As Jupiter moves through here, it will sextile their Leo factors. Bringing them abundant opportunities for goal gains and an expansive and exciting social cycle. If you’ve not checked your Lucky Jupiter in Gemini Forecast for Fire Signs yet, Leo, now’s the time.

We’re now heading into our Summer of Self-Belief. Where tapping into what we think about ourselves determines how the rest of this year unfolds. Need to upgrade yours? Then follow your forecasts over the next few weeks. The spotlight’s on you now, glowing, wonderful, worthy soul.

In a nutshell: If ever there’s a know-your-worth month, July is it. No matter what your sign, like Leo you’re centre stage and front of house when it comes to your values. Show your glowing, gold side – just like the birthday sign.
