#174 The Astrology Forecast for Heart Opening Leo Season

Greetings,

The themes this week are…

1. Heart

2. Relationships

3. Practicality

The Super Full Moon in Aquarius hit me hard last week. Since then I’ve felt reborn and extra inspired to share with you the astrology forecast for heart opening Leo Season.

For the first time in probably over a year I’m not writing this week’s forecast at the 11th Hour.

Therefore, there is a lot more information here than normal. Several dates for you to take note of as you navigate your course ahead through the rest of Fall and even into next year.

I hope it is helpful to you, and as always, 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. It is my purpose to help you understand who you are, so you can accept, appreciate, and love the divine, unique miracle that is you.


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

TUESDAY, August 8

The Moon in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn

The Sun in Leo Square the Moon in Taurus

The Sun rules Leo.

The Moon is exalted in Taurus.

Both of these planets are in a position of strength.

Mercury in Virgo Trine Jupiter in Taurus

For the second day this week, Mercury in Virgo is aligning with another planet in Taurus.

Monday it was the Moon.

Today it is Jupiter.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion.

Taurus is the Sign that represents the material.

On one side of the coin, Jupiter is bringing abundance to your material well-being.

On the other side of the coin, Jupiter is expanding your material liabilities.

Adding Mercury in Virgo to the mix is directing your mind to hone in on the details of the balance sheet.

Where is your money going?

Do you feel abundance by this material process, or extravagant?

This is the first three times Mercury in Virgo will Trine Jupiter in Taurus.

°°°

Venus Retrograde in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus

This aspect is similar to the previous aspect, between Mercury in Virgo and Jupiter in Taurus, in that it occurs three times.

Venus is the goddess of love and beauty, the planet of relationships, which is experiencing an extended stay in Leo.

Venus has been transiting through Leo since June 5. The purpose of this transit is to open your heart.

Uranus is the primordial sky god, the planet of revolution, rebellion, innovation, independence, and the unexpected.

Uranus has been transiting through Taurus since March 6, 2019. The purpose of this transit is to create financial independence.

The flip side of these transits, Venus in Leo can turn your heart into a black hole, while Uranus in Taurus can create financial dependency.

It’s all how you’re working with the energy.

The alignment between these two heavenly bodies is a Square, which creates tension.

Uranus could be breaking your heart open for the purpose of creating independence in your close, personal relationships.

Is your heart open or are you hiding the true nature of what you value from those you are in a relationship with because you are afraid it will not reflect your desires?

An open heart is a strong heart.

A closed heart is weak.

During this three-month period, July, August, and September Uranus is shocking your heart to break it open.

If it leaves you alone, it is for the purpose of your independence, independence that facilitates an open heart.

When your heart is open it will attract those who boldly reflect your values, your desires, and will honor your self-worth.

July 2 – Venus in Leo Trine Uranus in Taurus

August 9 – Venus Retrograde in Leo Trine Uranus in Taurus.

September 29 – Venus in Leo Square Uranus Retrograde in Taurus.

The first meeting, neither planet is retrograde.

The second meeting, Venus is retrograde.

The third meeting, Uranus is retrograde.

The objective is by the end of September your heart will be open, independent, and boldly in love with those who honor, reflect, and respect your values.


When: August 7 - 10

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Gemini is the Mutable Air Sign symbolized by the Twins and ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication.

The transit of the Moon through Gemini brings an emotional sensitivity to your curiosity.

Air fuels Fire.

Fire raises Air.

Gemini is Air.

Leo is Fire.

The fire of the Sun in Leo is fueling the air of the Moon in Gemini so you can boldly ask the questions you desire the answers to.

What questions would answer your heart’s desires?

In what ways can your inquisitive desires open your heart?

Gemini rules the lungs, the shoulders, the arms, and hands.

Breath. Move. Touch.

See which way your heart guides you. Be open to connecting, communicating, and listening.
