The Stars This Week: July 16-22, 2012
Showcase Your Best Self!

During the complicated week to come, you have the opportunity to shine ... but you'll need to tread carefully! And while you certainly have your supporters, other people will work against you on July 17 when the warrior planet, Mars, trines Jupiter and squares Pluto. Then, on July 18, Mars opposes Uranus, when you won't want anyone else telling you what to do! As Jupiter quincunxes Pluto on July 18 and sextiles Uranus on July 21, larger social changes force you to adjust your expectations. Finally, get out of the house and find fun activities when the Sun enters fun and creative Leo on July 22!

July 17: Mars trines Jupiter and squares Pluto
July 18: Mars opposes Uranus
Sparks fly as Mars connects with the revolutionary Pluto/Uranus square! If it weren't for Mars's trine to Jupiter, you wouldn't have any support at all. You'll need to navigate this minefield with great awareness; otherwise, you'll risk becoming embroiled in arguments and mired in conflict. Who's worth standing up to -- or standing up for? Choose your battles carefully or you'll end up with a situation that will have worsened (rather than improved) by the end of the week. Ask your supporters for advice before you act, as doing so can help move your vision forward.

July 18: Jupiter quincunxes Pluto
July 21: Jupiter sextiles Uranus
Jupiter in Gemini is a curious data collector with a million ideas. Pluto in Capricorn, meanwhile, is obsessed with building, whether it's a structure, a country or simply a reputation. And Uranus in Aries is bold, innovative and set on overthrowing outmoded ideas and systems. Jupiter's quincunx to Pluto represents societal course correction, while its sextile to Uranus indicates societal innovation. Of course, by strongly suggesting that it's time to act on your great ideas, these aspects directly affect you as well. You're likely to meet exciting people this week, and your social circle may widen to become more interesting than it's been in quite some time. Just keep tweaking your ideas and make any necessary adjustments to your plans.

July 22: The Sun enters Leo
The transit of the Sun through dramatic Leo casts a huge spotlight on your dreams and aspirations, giving you the strength and confidence to succeed. If you've been lingering on the sidelines, your wait is over! No matter what you hope to accomplish, anything is possible now, so it's time to reach higher and expect more of yourself. Finish your manuscript, apply for that dream job or attend an event where you can showcase your fabulous self. Check your birth chart to learn more about how you can shine!
