Your horoscope from July 24 to 30, 2014
We’re only one week into it, and already Jupiter in Leo has put on a big show. Planet Jupiter always enlarges the scope; life-giving Leo is a creative powerhouse and an attention-getting sign. Put the two together and it adds up to more, a lot more. Leo is also a “special destiny” archetype. There’s plenty of time to make hay. We’ll experience a few more weeks of the sun in Leo, but a whole year of Jupiter in Leo.
Thursday is a big opportunity day, thanks to the sun shining on Jupiter. It’s a great day to love ’em up, ask for more, or get your pleasure fill. If you miss out on the fun or luck, know that Saturday’s new moon in Leo also gains a boost from Jupiter’s blessings.
After a long, hard eight months of fighting its way through Libra, Mars finally treks into Scorpio. Starting Friday evening and lasting through September 13, there’s no more skirting the issue—it’s power-play time. Mars in Scorpio strips things down to what’s most necessary, urgent, potent, or empowering. It puts even more emphasis on all Scorpio themes—sex, death, taxes, hidden agendas, secrets, corruption, crime, trust, betrayal, et cetera.
On the positive side, this transit can help you to get a better strategy together, to develop a more targeted and committed approach. It can also deepen intimate-relationship bonds.
Either positive or negative, if there’s something brewing behind the scenes, expect Mars in Scorpio to uncover it.
