If you have any projects to implement, be sure you give yourself the space you need so you can feel balanced and aware of how your decisions affect the bottom line. If someone is pushing a timeline on you that doesn’t work with your routine, be sure to assess the situation and do what’s right for you. Clarity is essential and can help create a better flow to your life.
Venus is now retrograde in Leo and will be for the next few weeks.
On Wednesday, Venus reaches out to Uranus who is also retrograde. This is such a defining time for self-love. Do you love yourself? Synchronicities will surely show up for all of us this week, that help us to redefine ourselves anew, and realize how important it is to love yourself. Love is never a selfish act. When you bring joy into your own life, you are able to extend that joy to others. When you love yourself, you will radiate an energy others can feel and want to be around.
For many this could also point to having relationship issues that seriously need to be dealt with. There can be significant surprises all around in relationships that redefine many people's lives.
It’s a time to get excited about who you are and to honor your personality and all your unique traits that make you so awesome. If you don’t think you’re awesome, you will likely get an epiphany this week that changes the way you feel about yourself. With the Moon entering Libra as well in the middle of the week, it’s important to be true to yourself and authentic in your relationships. Allow yourself to recognize the importance of your life and to not be trapped by external thoughts, opinions, expectations and conditions of others.
To live true to yourself is a rebellious act against anything that stands in your way of loving you as you are. You deserve to feel that inner joy for your life. Own your power to live true to yourself.
Once Friday rolls around, the Sun in Leo and Saturn in Scorpio are at odds. When you push through challenges and shine your light you will come out the other side of obstacles with a sense of empowerment and appreciation. This is a time to do the work and recognize in yourself all you have done to get where you are. Be proud of yourself. The Sun in Leo pushes us to shine bright and be proud of who we are. Whenever doubts arise in your life know that your inner light will allow you to climb the mountain. You will reach the top, rise above the clouds and see the sun shine high above, bright and glorious.
On Saturday, the Moon comes along in Scorpio and joins Saturn. Now you get to take a moment to appreciate how precious time is. Scorpio is a highly magical sign with so much depth. The Moon will be in Scorpio on Thursday and Friday leading up to Saturday, so you may feel your emotions more intensely as the week winds down.
This is a great time to get into your own psyche and examine how you think, feel and react to external factors in your life. How is your life working out? How do you feel about your life? If this is a particularly emotional day for you, this is a perfect time to do some journaling to get to understand the underlying issues to a situation. Emotions are powerful motivators. Recreating your life comes from doing the work and acknowledging what needs to change.
Then, as the day progresses the Moon steps into Sagittarius. More positive emotions should start to reveal themselves.
On Sunday, the Sun will leave Leo for another year as he enters Virgo at 6:37 a.m. ET. This is when we know the school year and the more focused work year are on the horizon. Back to school can be worrying for some, but exciting for others. Either way, it means more attention to details and doing the work are on their way.
After the fun-loving joy of Leo, we move into more serious territory where plans can get a stronger footing.
This is a great time to consider new work, implementing new health habits, a new daily routine and getting your life in order. With Jupiter in Virgo as well now, this is such a great time to kick off a new start in your life with hope, optimism and abundance at the helm. Use that New Moon in Leo energy from last week to grow forward with confidence and enthusiasm for life. The fresh, creative aspect of life coupled with this new detail oriented energy can set you up for success.
Focus on where you are going. Use the now to grow into what you wish to become and enjoy it. Be enthusiastic about going for your dreams. Keep your mind occupied with the positive.
Below are the horoscopes for each sign.

Aries: This week can feel exhilarating. Most notably, Venus reaches out to Uranus in your sign and so this is you finding your joy in life by loving yourself. If you want to get anywhere good in life, you’ve got to love yourself. This is a core part of your learning now. Find your freedom and excitement for life by focusing on your blessings, creativity and joy. Focus on what you want for you, and don't feel guilty about taking some much needed time to focus on your needs. The only thing hold you back is the fear of growth. It’s time to let go of the old ways that are outworn and move towards living your life in more useful ways.
Taurus: This is a good time for you to pause on decision making regarding anything cosmetic, especially if it has to do with your house. Changes, even renos, may need to be done but it’s best to explore your options before committing. There’s lots to consider now. The Sun entering Virgo promises you’ll be getting down to business. It can be a lot of fun to put your best ideas and inspiration into your tasks, bringing you a sense of accomplishment. Changes are on the horizon but it’s important that you get the details in order before taking the leap. Patience is a virtue.
Gemini: This week friendship is in focus. Where there is love, there are true friends. If you have to deal with any surprises in your friendships or those you may consider comrades, you’ll get a strong hint of who’s got your back and vice versa. It’s a great idea to brighten up your home this week, literally or metaphorically. Commune with those that are most fun, loving and spontaneous now. Opening windows, getting rid of clutter, and creating a space with good flow and light will give you a sense of order and improve your functionality. You may not be able to pull out a magic wand and have it all just perfect, but each step will reveal gifts and intuitive insights.
Cancer: It’s fun to play in the summer Sun. If you have a fresh infusion of cash, gambling or good times may be extra tempting.
