#170 The Astrology Forecast for July 10 - 16: Mercury in Leo and Mars in Virgo

Greetings,

The themes this week are…

1. Heart

2. Mind

3. Nurture

The week begins with a big shift as both Mercury and Mars transit into new Signs.

Mercury, the planet of the conscious Mind transits into Leo, the Sign that rules the Heart. Mars transits into Virgo, the Sign that represents the conscious Mind.

The Sun continues its transit through Cancer, the Sign that represents nurturing, while the Moon joins the Sun later in the week in the Sign it rules.

We are closing out the Moon Cycle this week, and will be beginning a new Lunar Cycle early next week. If you are interested in learning how the next Moon Cycle will be affecting you directly, enroll in the Moon Cycle Classes.


If you are curious to know how any of the transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.


Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

°°°

Mercury in Leo Square the North Node Retrograde in Taurus

Just as Mercury completes its Opposition to Pluto, it transits into Leo and forms a Square with the North Node in Taurus.

Your mind may be feeling more bold and therefore your words may come across louder than usual, like the roar of the Lion. This powerful frequency may find yourself at odds with your reality.

Perhaps you are pushing yourself beyond your limits materially. The tension here is meant to help you find the balance between what you value, the status of the self-worth, and the deepest desires of your heart.

The three keys to navigating this transit of Mercury in Leo are…


1. Connect your mind to your heart.

2. Speak from your heart.

3. Open your heart while you are listening.

What can you do to communicate with an open heart?

What can you do to listen with an open heart?

°°°

Mars in Virgo Trine the North Node Retrograde in Taurus

Mars joins Mercury in forming an aspect with the North Node, except this aspect is more of a gift than the challenge that is presented with Mercury in Leo.

Mars in Virgo is giving you the precision you need to drive towards creating the desires of your heart in your present reality.

There is really so much synastry between this alignment of Mars and Mercury both forming aspects with the North Node, since Mars is in Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury.

Think about it like this. Mercury is connecting your heart to your mind, and pushing you towards bringing your desires into reality, with its aspect to the North Node. Meanwhile, Mars is pushing you to push yourself by honing in on the details necessary for you to shine from your heart center so brightly that it appears in the material realm.

The three keys to navigate the transit of Mars through Virgo are…

1. Motivate yourself to clean up the details.

2. Push yourself to get organized.

3. Drive towards creating efficiency in your daily life.

How can you channel your energy and drive into meticulous attention to detail and efficient organization?

With Mars transiting through Virgo, you may be pushed to fine tune your actions. There may also be conflicts with regards to daily routine, health, diet, or job, for the purpose driving you to create an efficiency in your everyday life.
