Hang in there, Leo darling. Wandering through your mystifying 12th house is never an easy process. And with the Sun beaming through this area of your chart for the majority of the month, you are given no choice but to acknowledge your dreams, and subconscious mind. Be honest, Leo: When was the last time you actually got some rest? I see a lot of you blowing off steam at the gym, and perhaps even re-organizing your entire living space, but what about your spirit? Sounds cheesy, but this is a time for you to embrace your solitude, and really work behind the scenes. Activities such as yoga, meditation, sound healing, journaling are highly suggested. Releasing that which no longer serves you can be both mentally and physically exhausting, but this spiritual purge is essential to your soul’s growth, Leo. The new moon solar eclipse will inevitably shake up this area of your chart, and let’s face it, you’ve got a whole lot to let go of. So don’t you dare hold back! Besides, Cancer is a symbol of our inner world; hence some of you might experience an emotional breakthrough during this time. Ever thought of forgiving yourself, and the people who have wronged you, Leo? I think it’s time. An electric sextile to Uranus via your ambitious tenth house of career and authority figures is here to revolutionize your leadership skills, and sense of authority. Who knows, some of you might unexpectedly kick off a whole new career venture. Have no fear, lion. Assertive Mars slides into your sign this month, and you’ll have all the energy in the world to get things done. After all, you’re in the midst of a powerful rebirth, you know. So this assertive streak of energy will certainly come in handy. But make sure to stay centered, as the eclipses continue to ignite sectors related to your mind, body, and soul. On another note, Chiron retrograde is here to help you consider the bigger picture, and perhaps even gift you with the necessary courage to take a much-needed leap of faith. So whether you’re considering the idea of going back to school, or perhaps think it’s time to venture elsewhere, ask and you shall receive, Leo babe. Although, I would think before you say something you might regret, given that Mercury the messenger will be stationing retrograde in your sign this month. Cat catch your tongue? Remember, Mercury Rx is for reflecting, revisiting, and re-assessing the situation, so if there’s something you’ve been putting aside, or perhaps an application you’ve been too lazy to fill out, now wouldn’t be a bad time to pick it back up. Also, for those of you who are given no choice but to sign a contract during this time, don’t stress it. Just make sure to read the fine print, and if possible, have another pair of eyes look it over. ‘Tis all. Mercury stations retrograde three to four times a year, y’all. We can’t stop our lives either, you know. The second eclipse of the month will take place, in the sign of Capricorn, on July 16. This will activate your health-conscious sixth house of order, habits, and day-to-day routine. Now, I’m not going to sugar coat this, Leo. This could very well having you feeling a bit tense, but again, instead of panicking, let’s find a solution to your problem. Whether it be health, work, or miscellaneous things, this eclipse is shedding light on that which needs to be restructured in this area of your life, and I have a feeling you’re already familiar with what this is. In the meantime, take a deep breath, and remember that the universe has your back. Besides, the sun enters your sign on July 22, followed by a new moon on July 31, and you will be glimmering with pride!
