August 5-11

Overview: Isn’t it wonderful to know that we don’t know? In a culture that thrives on making the uncertain certain, spiritual seekers know that from a place of no expectation or managing outcome, the Universe can let wonder, opportunities, and miracles emerge beautifully. 

Wednesday’s trine between the Sun in Leo and Jupiter in Sagittarius gives the zodiac an out of the blue opportunity. If we blend the best of Leo worthiness and Sagittarius optimism, we can find ourselves not only in right place, right time moments but with the right preparation to succeed in whatever the Universe surprises us with. If you’re met with making a choice between risk averse and audacity, choose audacity.

The next day, Venus blazing through Leo trines Jupiter in Sagittarius on Thursday lifting our romantic beliefs and practices to the highest. Like Wednesday’s trine, the outcome of this transit between the two planetary benefics depends on how we can allow our courage and confidence to determine our choices. So often we let insecurity and comparison take the wheel. We think they protect us from failure and embarrassment but do they really? Lean on your worthiness and visionary thinking while imagining and acting on love. 

If you want to lay low on Sunday, choose a different Sunday. Jupiter moves direct in Sagittarius since April 10th when it first spun retrograde. With Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius, the zodiac was tasked to internalize what we learned from November 2018-April 2019 especially as it pertains to our beliefs on freedom, travel, and spiritual wisdom. It asked us to let our new ideas live within our bones. As the saying goes, “knowledge is a rumor until it lives in the body.” Hopefully the knowledge know lives in the body. 

Mercury renters Leo since June 27th where it then retrograded on July 7. Think back to the shadow period which started on June 20th and connect these experiences to your self-esteem, courage, willingness to experience joy, and power. It’s likely we all have work to do and progress to make there. Mercury returning to Leo lets us apply what we learned during the Retrograde and step into greater versions of ourselves. 

The last of the Sunday transit is Uranus turning retrograde in Taurus. Uranus rules the surprise, disruption, and transformation energies in our lives. With it retrogade until next January in Taurus, we want to do what we’re asked to do during all retros: internalize our ideas on change. If we look around our own lives and the national arenas too, it’s so clear that we need to be instruments of change but how? Uranus in Taurus asks us to deeply internalize our ideas on change internally so that we can commit to transformation externally next year.
