Sun enters Leo 5:41 PM EDT
Mercury opposite Pluto
Leo is ruled by the Sun. In the northern hemisphere, the cradle of astrology as we know it, the Sun is hottest in this month. It can scorch the earth, it is often a season of forest fires. It can also warm us so we want to swim as well as bring our food crops to fruition for the harvest in Virgo. Here on the ground we are tired of rulers who are dishonest, corrupt, misguided, unethical and devoid of compassion. We have been scorched by misrule. Leo encourages us to find the path with heart and walk it.
Focus your mind on the situation at hand. You may need to dig into the past but it’s only to help transform the present.

Dream of a world where the mothers and fathers can feed and educate their children.
Do something, however small, to energize the dream.
Don’t be daunted by the chaos of wind, weather and war. It is what it is.
When we hold to the notion that we are created and that we live in a world that is constantly being created we can know what’s possible.
Mars enters Scorpio
The warrior has left the sign of its detriment (Libra) and enters a sign of its rulership (Scorpio), where it is said to be dignified. For thousands of years before the discovery of Pluto in 1930 Mars was the only ruler of Scorpio. Surely we have had a belly full of aggression, violence and unproductive diplomacy since Mars started its journey in Libra back in December 2013. Now begins a time to clean up, make some headway and act in a dignified manner. Let us hope!
New Moon: 3 degrees of Leo 10:55 AM EDT
Renewal is always a possibility. If you’re walking the path with heart or even if you just wish you were, consider the intentions of your heart: To love? To include? To command? Or simply to keep time with the heartbeat of the world.
Venus opposite PlutoDesire is a fascinating subject. Are we to be abducted by our desires as the advertising machine desires us to be? As if we were food to be eaten by their products. Are we capable of actually making choices or must it always be a manipulation? That’s a big question. Desire is the cause of our most sublime and ridiculous utterings and behaviors. What is the difference between surrender and capitulation?
Mercury enters Leo
It’s never that the planets make us do things. It’s more like a cosmic mirror in which we can see ourselves and reflect upon what we see. Today our thoughts turn to creativity and fun. Maybe you’re having an adventure or creating something. Maybe you’re even struggling to express yourself. However it goes, take a risk – if only in your mind.

Unexpected events on the rocky road of trying to get satisfaction. We know what has to get done, yet somehow we don’t want to do it. If shame is the reason for inaction think twice about letting it rule your life.

Mercury square Mars
It’s easy to have a vision of what could come to pass; harder to deal with all the people or situations that might not want such a vision to unfold. Search the nooks and crannies, the caves and shadows of year heart before making any major pronouncements.
Mars trine Neptune
Awaken to the feelings within you and without you. It will make everything you do more aligned with truth.

An active day for creative inspiration. Let the world around you be your muse. There will be obstacles. Each and every one designed to strengthen your commitment and skill.

Workaholics unite! You have nothing to lose but your fear that no matter how much you do it will never be enough. It never will be enough nor should it be. Your best is good enough. If you can believe that, the square turns into a genuine challenge of the highest kind; encouraging excellence.
Full Moon: 18 degrees Aquarius 2:09 PM EDT
We all want to have fun and more fun with our people. But there is a shadow hanging over our summer fun. Possibly a misguided angel of some sort is lurking. Or maybe it is just the difficulty of integrating all that fun with the outrageous floods and wars. We are called to celebrate simply because we are here and we can. That is reason enough.
Venus enters Leo
She loves all acts of creativity. She is radiant when seen. We are drawn to extravagance when she is in the fiery sign of Leo.

Transformation is possible and more likely to happen when the work of it is meaningful.

A lucky day for someone. Could be anyone of us. Luck is like that.
When it comes to conversation there is a difference between hearing and listening. Let s/he who has the ears to hear, hear.
Mercury trine Pluto
Sometimes the best way to understand how something works is to take it apart. And then see if you can put it back together.
