What do the planets have in store for this week? With both Mars and the Sun moving into Leo there is a lot of fiery action oriented energy at play. The Sun moves into its favorite sign of Leo on Saturday where it will be until August 22nd. Under the bright light of the Leo Sun, and depending on how it shines on other planets in your birth chart, you might find yourself longing for recognition. You now want to stand out and be seen and appreciated just for being your unique self. You may become more aware of what makes you special — your talents, personality, and past experience — and you want other people to notice too!

Leo rules the heart, and love is in the air. You might be more romantic than usual, surprising your sweetie with flowers or chocolates. You’ll certainly appreciate being showered with gifts yourself! Leo is the king or queen, and both giving and receiving the royal treatment are highly satisfying.

On Thursday, warrior planet Mars also moves into Leo where it will be until September 5th. Mars will be in Leo the entire time that the Sun is in Leo, creating a Leo double-whammy of positive cosmic energy. The Sun is the natural ruler of Leo, making all things Leo prominent, and Mars comes up, giving the Sun a boost up. Mars is the planet of action, the will to do, aggression, physical exertion, and the libido. Leo is a fixed fire sign, like a giant fire burning in hearth. Mars makes it bigger, brighter, and hotter.

This show is dedicated to all you Leo’s out there or anyone who has a Leo in their life!

The Planets

Astrology is not a belief system, and it’s definitely not a supernatural phenomenon. It’s an ancient and complex system based on careful observation of the heavens and the movement of the planets around the Sun. It’s a system that you can use to better understand human nature and life here on earth.

There are so many components to astrology that it can get pretty confusing. Sun signs, birth charts, planets and aspects… Lots of factors go into an accurate reading of astrological conditions and how they relate to you. But just for starters, at the exact moment that you were born, the planets were in particular positions in the sky. Together, they tell all about you, heart and soul.

According to astrology, the planets in our birth chart include more than just our nine — including celestial bodies that we don’t normally think of as planets, such as the Sun and the Moon.

The planets were in a certain, distinctive pattern in the sky at the exact moment that you were born, and a map of their configuration is called your natal chart, or birth chart. Each planet represents something in itself — your personality (Sun), the way you think (Mercury), the way you love (Venus) and so on — but together, the angles and connections among all of them also paint a highly specific and accurate portrait of who you are as an individual.

Some people like to claim that astrology doesn’t work — that it provides only generic information that could be applied to anyone. But take a look at a reading of your birth chart, and you’ll find out just how specific the information gets! You’ll be amazed by the picture of you that astrology paints, including in-depth analysis of your emotional life, your dreams and motivations and your subconscious drives.

The Planets this Week: July 2 - 8, 2017

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

We have two planets changing signs. The first is love planet Venus moving into Gemini where it will be until July 31st. Venus leaves the sign of its natural rulership and enters Gemini. Gemini is the sign of communication, commutes, errands, siblings, and neighbors. Venus smooth over everything she touches. Any problems with communication, commutes, trips, and relationships with siblings and neighbors will be smooth sailing. People will be pleasant when they speak to each other, and you’ll be more polite overall, too. It just won’t feel good to be pushy, and frankly, you won’t want to use the energy to be assertive or aggressive.

Next up, communication planet Mercury moves into Leo where it will be until July 25th. While Mercury is in Leo, and depending on how this transit influences your birth chart, your mind may be filled with big ideas and grand plans. You’re less concerned about the details and more interested in the broader vision of what you want to create. Confidence in your own opinions is strong — maybe too strong! Watch out for arrogance or getting too wedded to being right.

This weekend we can expect an intense Full Moon in Capricorn. During the Capricorn Full Moon, your inbox or voicemail may contain promising messages regarding a career opportunity, if that’s what you seek at this time. Your efforts during the past couple of weeks could generate the kind of response that you’ve been hoping for. Although there may not be a guarantee of a new position, getting feedback is always great for your self-esteem. If you’ve been questioning your recent decisions, you may become more certain by what the universe seems to be sending your way. Your hunches have gotten you this far in life. Continue following the many leads that arise.

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

Summer has officially begun in the Northern Hemisphere (and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere). The Summer Solstice occurs around June 21 or so, when the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Cancer.

The Summer Solstice coincides with the Sun moving into Cancer. Cancer is symbolized by the Crab, which makes a lot of sense when you take that sensitive, emotional nature into account. When things get tense, Cancer goes into self-protection mode, pulling into its shell until the trouble clears.

A Cardinal Water Sign, emotional Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which explains that ultra-sensitive moodiness. But Cancer isn’t all about protecting itself; not even close. This sign is the caretaker of the Zodiac, who will go to great lengths to keep its loved ones safe and supported. Cancers are nothing if not deeply connected with their families, and would do anything for their friends as well — even if it doesn’t always seem like it. Cancer can come across as a very introverted sign, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care. This sign can get so emotional that it doesn’t know how to express itself, and there’s that handy shell again, ready for Cancer to retreat to.

We also have a New Moon in Cancer and Mercury moved into Cancer so there’s a lot of watery energy during these hot summer weeks!

Mercury is very busy this week with its many aspects to other planets. The way you communicate has a lot to do with the planet Mercury, which is often called the planet of communication and also rules your thought processes, your logic (or lack thereof), your intellectual ideas and the way you get those ideas across to the world.

What do the planets have in store for us this summer? Now is the best time to see what’s ahead this season according to your sign and make the most of these planetary alignments.

If you’re an Aries the New Moon on the 23rd is the best time of the entire year to tackle household matters. Relocating, purchasing a home or launching a renovation project are all favored during the second half of June.

For Taurus Venus, your ruling planet, moves into your sign on June 6th, causing your star power to burn more brightly than ever. Use it to attract love, money, luck and creative opportunity.

For Gemini, on July 4th, Venus moves into your sign, enhancing your natural wit, charm and intelligence. Don’t be surprised when you become a love magnet. For Cancer, the Full Moon on July 8th brings exciting news from your business or romantic partner. Take this opportunity to celebrate your mutual victory over a lavish dinner.

What about if you’re a Virgo then on July 25th Mercury, your ruling planet, enters your sign giving added force to your brilliant ideas and creative suggestions. It’s a great time to make a public presentation or give a professional talk. How about for Capricorn? The Full Moon rises in your sign on July 8th, marking a fabulous personal transformation. You may complete an assignment or journey that puts you on a brand new path at this time.

And Pisces? Ambitious Saturn goes direct in your Professional Sector on August 25th, allowing you to make progress in your career. A desirable position could finally become available or a big promotion could come through.

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

There’s a few planetary shifts happening this week. The first is Mars moving into Cancer where it will be until July 20th. This isn’t the most comfortable placement for Mars, but not completely terrible. Mars is the planet of action, the will to do, aggression, physical exertion, and the libido. Cancer is a reactive sign of nurturing, family, protection, imagination, motherhood, and origins.

Next up is Venus moving into Taurus on Tuesday. Under the influence of Venus in Taurus, and depending on how this transit affects your birth chart, you could find yourself indulging in the sensual side of life. You’re likely to take your time expressing warmth and affection toward your sweetie, and will likewise revel in receiving physical contact.

Next up is a Full Moon in Sagittarius. During the Sagittarius Full Moon, you’re likely to be in a jolly mood that makes you feel truly alive. Recent steps you have taken to add some zest to your life are working. No longer plagued by feelings of boredom, you are more able to enjoy getting up when the promise of a fun day lies ahead of you. Give yourself a pat on the back for taking charge of your own well-being.

After a four month retrograde period, Jupiter planet of luck and good fortune turns direct. When Jupiter is retrograde in Libra, from February 5 through June 9, 2017, that expansive energy turns inward. During this phase, we are challenged to take stock of our beliefs and ideals, and be honest with ourselves about whether the lives we’re living truly match our most cherished beliefs.

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

The Sun is now in Gemini so it’s Gemini season! The Sun moved into Gemini where it will be until June 20th. Under the Gemini Sun, and depending on its influence to your natal chart, your social life is likely to get a big boost. You’ll be in the mood to connect, and will have fun meeting fascinating people who open your mind to new ways of seeing the world. Your networking skills are in top form — make a point of getting out and talking about your dreams for the future!

Mental energy will be high, and your mind might be a bit scattered, but your insatiable curiosity could take you in all sorts of interesting directions. You might find yourself drawn to taking classes, surfing the internet, or reading a variety of magazines and books. There’s an urge to learn new things, but you might have a hard time settling your mind on one subject for too long. Without variety, you get easily bored.

On Thursday, we also have a New Moon in Gemini which stirs up a plethora of fancies in your head; so many, in fact, that you may walk into a wall if you don’t pay attention to where you’re going! Those who find you staring off into space think you are in a fog belt, when you are actually immobilized by thoughts of a gazillion possibilities. You won’t need too much outside stimulation to incite more activity in your head, you’ve got plenty of your own. Maybe there is a best-selling novel brewing in your brain that begs to be brought to life. Maybe you’re thinking about learning some new languages. You may even want to learn something new and completely different.

On Friday, love planet moves into Aries where it will be until June 6th. While Venus is in Aries, and depending on how this influence affects your birth chart, your love life could be quite exciting! You might find yourself being bolder than usual, taking risks and acting on your ardent impulses. Romance can be steamy and you’re open to experimentation — just watch out for getting carried away by your passions and be sure to take care of yourself.

If you’re single, this is an ideal transit for initiating new relationships, and you’ve got the confidence to go after what you want. Of course, what you want could change from moment to moment. The hunt might be what thrills you most right now, while the everyday work of relationship could feel stifling. If you’re in a partnership, break up familiar routines with an infusion of novelty — surprise your sweetie by taking him or her on an unexpected outing, wearing a sexy new outfit, or trying an innovative approach to lovemaking.

Also this week, we have a New Moon in Taurus. The Taurus New Moon slows down your energy level as you mull over more practical concerns of living and life. This earthy moon propels you to work hard but at the end of the day, still wants you to take it easy and enjoy some of your hard earned cash. Make a list of items that you need to feel secure. If some of those items on the list are beyond your means, you may consider what you need to curb or grow in order to get the things you deserve. That be taking a second job or making some minor investments.

What do the planets have in store for us this week? The headline of the week is the Sun moving into Taurus on Wednesday where it will be until May 20th. Under the influence of the Taurus Sun, and depending on its transits to planets in your natal chart, you may find yourself slowing down and taking time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Creature comforts become more of a priority, and you’re tuned into the sensual side of life. Gardening, spending time in nature, and nurturing your body with loving care are some possible expressions.

On Thursday, Mercury moves into Aries so your mind could be functioning at top speed and in short bursts of activity. You might not have a lot of patience to focus on one idea for too long, instead burning through one thought quickly and moving on to the next. Instead of weighing all the pros and cons of a situation, you may tend to make snap judgments based more on instinct than logic.

Also on Thursday, Pluto turns retrograde until September 28th. Occasionally the Pluto retrograde period is characterized by painful loss, or events and circumstances in your life that are far beyond your control. In many ways, Pluto represents factors that are much larger than any individual; it is the planet of human evolution, after all, and that trumps any single person. But for most of us, most of the time, Pluto retrograde periods offer us the chance to delve deeply into our own inner resources and determine what is most important, when all is said and done.

Finally, on Friday, Mars moves into Gemini where it will be until June 4th. During this time you could find yourself rather high-strung and have a lot of nervous energy. You could also have real trouble sitting still for long periods of time, which could lead to problems in school and on the job because you seem restless and bored (and maybe you are!).

What do the planets have in store for us this week?

The big news of the week is Mercury and Venus are changing direction! Mercury is turning retrograde and Venus will be moving forward again! Mercury Retrograde is a phenomenon that has worked its way into mass consciousness. The moment a communication snafu occurs, folks blame Mercury Retrograde! The truth is, not all miscommunications can be laid at the feet of this little planet. But it does behoove us to observe a few simple principles about this event.

Mercury appears to turn backward in its path around the Zodiac three times every year, for about twenty-one or twenty-two days at a time. So every four months, you get a three-week pause in which to catch up on old correspondence, read the book that’s been sitting on your nightstand and make phone calls to friends and family.

Also, love planet Venus will finally moves forward again. It has been retrograde since March 4th. Venus is our next-door neighbor here in the solar system, and therefore it is retrograde the least amount of time of all the planets — only once every 18 months, for about 6 weeks at a time. That amounts to about seven percent of the time, total.

When Venus, the Planet of Love, goes retrograde, it’s no surprise that relationship issues come right to the surface. Things you (or your lover!) have simply been tolerating all of a sudden become intolerable. One or both of you may say or do things that you otherwise wouldn’t. Some folks have been known to make sudden, unilateral relationship moves when Venus was retrograde.
