Have you felt gifted, uplifted, or better on track over the past few days? The stars have offered something of a reprieve from an emotional (and for many, challenging) Mars in Cancer transit. If you’ve recently taken a hit in your vulnerable spot, you’ll be happy to know that the Leo archetype will now overtake the lead. Desire and confidence levels get a fresh face-lift.
Thursday is mobilizing and trendsetting. It’s a great day to connect, meet, talk, explore, or get going. Sun/Uranus can spark something unexpected and synchronistic. Watch for a social opportunity, a revelation, fresh insight, or for good ideas worth putting into action.
Also on Thursday, Mars leaves Cancer for a seven-week stint in Leo, preceding the sun’s entrance into its home sign, which happens on Saturday. When the sun shines in Leo, it’s a time to power up your light; to be the best you can be; to create more; to play, love, enjoy, and reward yourself more. Mars supplies ample fuel and an action top-up.
Sunday’s new moon in Leo infuses the potential with fresh life and promise. Monday’s Venus/Saturn is shaping, defining, or solidifying. The day can see a goal reached or goal set. Mercury/Uranus, a springboard influence, sets an ideal backdrop for getting something new off the ground. Mercury’s advance into Virgo on Tuesday sets up a productive couple of days to get onto task. Wednesday’s sun/Mars lights a fresh fuse. Know the stars are already on an active setup for next month’s eclipses and Mercury’s retrograde cycle.
March 20 - April 20
Looking for more attention and action? Look to Mars, the sun, and the new moon in Leo to put it into play. These put an added spotlight on success ratios, the heart, love, fun, and the best the season has to offer. Thursday, Monday, and Wednesday rev up something fresh. Mercury into Virgo, starting Tuesday, favours cleanup and fix-it projects.
April 20 - May 21
A brainstorm, a conversation, or something more can strike it hot Thursday. One way or another, Thursday’s sun/Uranus gets it/you going. In fact, every day through next Wednesday dishes up something fresh. The new moon shines on the home and family front. Mercury into Virgo, starting Tuesday, helps you to make the most of what you have to work with.
May 21 - June 21
Thursday could start with the need for extra effort or patience, but it isn’t likely to finish that way. Sun/Uranus stirs it up; one thing leads to another. Friday comes and it goes. Saturday onward, you’ll pick up a stronger signal and a better momentum. Monday, you’re quick on the uptake. Tuesday/Wednesday, there’s catch-up to do, stuff to fix or to work out.
June 21 - July 22
Mars leaves your sign on Thursday and the sun does so on Saturday. They aren’t deserting you, though, quite the contrary. Along with Sunday’s new moon in Leo, watch for this next week to keep you/it going strong. Spur of the moment can deliver some of the best ideas or opportunities. Leo month sets optimum conditions for making the most of it.
July 22 - August 23
Birthday month can be an outstanding one, especially so if your birthday falls on one of the two eclipses in August. Mars in Leo, starting Thursday, and the sun in Leo, starting Saturday, don’t plan to waste any time. They’ll tee up by next Wednesday, but there are many strike-it-hot moments from now until then. Go while the getting is good!
August 23 - September 23
This next week is ideal for taking a break and/or for a switch-it-up. While Mars, the sun, and the new moon crave more quality time to simply enjoy, a restless edge prevents you from sitting still for long. As of Tuesday/Wednesday, you’ll gain a major battery recharge. Watch for the Virgo moon, Mercury into Virgo, and sun/Mars to light a fresh fuse.
September 23 - October 23
Thursday/Friday, the flow, the connecting, and the getting are good. Starting Thursday, Mars into Leo infuses more life into ambitions and prospects. The sun and the new moon in Leo put an added spotlight on desire, reward, and getting the most out of it. Tuesday/Wednesday, Mercury into Virgo sets you onto task. There’s something to fix, upgrade, top up, or work through.
October 23 - November 22
A new career and/or personal life chapter is well in the works. Whether there’s an actual event to mark it or it is a feel, an attitude, or a shift of consciousness, Mars on the move, the sun’s trek into Leo, and Sunday’s new moon now set the reality into its next play. Monday through Wednesday, one thing quickly leads to the next.
November 21 - December 21
Something social and spur-of-the-moment suits you quite well Thursday. Through the start of September, Mars in Leo keeps you well on your game. The sun and new moon in Leo also set the dial to taking it up a great big notch and making the most of it. Enjoy yourself or set yourself to task—either way, it’s all to the plus.
December 21 - January 20
If you can take care of two things at once on Thursday/Friday, all the better. Want more? Go for it. Mars, the sun, and the new moon in Leo put a much bigger spotlight on self-interest, personal satisfaction, money, and love. Tuesday/Wednesday, you’ll cut to the chase or hone in on it with better precision.
January 20 - February 18
Thursday/Friday, your timing is good. Now through mid–next week, Mars, the sun, and the new moon top you up with fresh fuel. Make the most of the moment. Tuesday/Wednesday can drum up something more. Mercury into Virgo helps you to make an improvement, fill in a missing blank, or score a better deal. Wednesday calls for assertiveness.
February 18 - March 20
Play host, enjoy time with friends, company, or loved ones Thursday/Friday. As of this weekend and into next week, you are likely to feel the switch as Mars, the sun, and the new moon light up in Leo. While the season’s best continues to call, there’s work to be done. Sunday through Wednesday, get on it.
