Welcome to July, Leo! Your season begins this month, so sprawl out like a tiger in the sun and accept all of the birthday attention. At the end of last month, romance planet Venus entered your sign, throwing glitter all over your love life. You’re cool, charismatic, and everyone wants a taste of you. You’re in, but are you in just for hot sex, or do you want a relationship as well? On Tuesday, July 6, Venus in Leo opposes strict Saturn in independent Aquarius. Don’t be surprised if a romantic interest asks you to commit around this time. All you have to do is be honest. Talk to friends or work with a therapist if you’re not sure what you want.
A new moon in Cancer on Friday, July 9 brings out your psychic abilities. Stay in on this night if possible to focus on self-care and make time for meditation. If you are still feeling uncertain about your love life, now is the time for profound revelations. Keep a pen and notebook by you to write thoughts down as they arise.
On Sunday, July 11, communication planet Mercury enters caring Cancer. You should be able to wrap up any lingering relationship discussions during this time. Both you and your love interest(s) will feel safe discussing emotional subjects. Whether you decide to advance a relationship or call it quits, know that as long as you follow your intuition, you’re doing the right thing.
Don’t worry, it’s almost your birthday season, sexy Leo, but first, you must jump through one more emotional task. On Thursday, July 15, a comet named Chiron, which is known as the “wounded healer,” goes retrograde in bold Aries and asks everyone to deal with unresolved trauma. Perhaps it’s childhood trauma or lingering grief from the pandemic, but you must work through it so that you can move onward. You are very proud, Leo, and you deserve to be. But don’t let your pride keep you from seeking the help you need regarding such important issues.
Lover planet Venus leaves your sign and enters practical Virgo on Wednesday, July 21. Now that the pace of your love life has relaxed a bit, this transit sees you having less intense discussions, such as what movie to watch, which new sex toy to use, or how to spend your weekend. Enjoy this new phase — there’s nothing wrong with a beautiful, calm love life. Your season begins the next day on Thursday, July 22, and in typical Leo style, the volume dial will turn up again soon enough.
