July 30 – August 5, 2012 is highlighted with a full moon in the sign of humanitarian Aquarius. We all have a part of our chart that is directly affected by Aquarian energy and its opposite sign Leo. This week there is a showdown between your heart and your mind. Showdown might be a bit dramatic, but while the Sun is in Leo for the next three weeks life can be all theatrics. It’s time to enjoy your situation, appreciate the entertainment value of your own good drama.
Monday the sun will form a supportive trine with Uranus. Uranus makes things happened suddenly. Unexpectedly life can change. You land a job you forgot you applied for. This may be the right time to try a new haircut or buy some unique clothing. The Sun is our identity, we are each individual and connecting to rebel genius Uranus grants the potential for us to each access our individuality- to freely express our true selves. A sudden interest in a cause is possible now. Follow the trail and make sure to wear a helmet, metaphorically speaking.
Tuesday Venus, planet of what we value is forming a helpful connection to taskmaster Saturn. You may be required to take on more responsibility but this will provide a sense of fulfillment and security. It’s win-win. Relationships are serious business for a reason. We share energy with all those we interact with. Keep your surroundings positive to bolster your own confidence and ability.
Wednesday in the early evening the moon will be full. You may be feeling this two days before and after. The Moon and Sun are opposite each other in the sky on full moons and this often plays out in our relationships. Those that are outside of our selves function as a wonderful mirror for us to see what’s happening inside ourselves. Your heart, Leo is in a tug of war with your mind, Aquarius. Part of you wants what it wants. Another part is finding the holes in your plan, thinking, thinking, thinking. Find a way to satisfy your passions as well as serving your ideas for a better world. Connect your heart and mind. This may not be easy but it will be progressive.
Thursday the sun makes a wonderful connection to big thinker Jupiter. You might get the opportunity to show them what you are made off. There is potential for wish fulfillment when these planets meet. A buoyant sense of optimism for no real reason follows you all day. A very lucky state of mind to dwell in. Enjoy the sense of ease that often comes with this influence.
Mercury will be retrograde until August 8, 2012. Take this last week or so to get your ducks in a row, you’ll want to jump on opportunity when it comes up the first week in August. Until then, Mercury is keeping us all in a state a review. Slow down and stop trying for a minute, just settle into being instead of doing. Enjoy the opportunity to take easy- things will pick up again soon enough.
The weekend is under the influence of Pisces energy. Indulge in the harmless little freebees life throws your way. Take time for sleeping and dreaming. Reflect on the positive and ignore confusion, focus on what you do want and not what you don’t. The practice of changing your thoughts could be one the most important things you ever learn to do. You are worth the effort.
