Step into the Spotlight!

This week features energy-packed aspects as Mars conjuncts Jupiter on July 22 and opposes Pluto on July 27, giving you the energy to accomplish more than you have all year! Small acts bring big rewards, meanwhile, as love planet Venus enters practical Virgo on July 22. That same day, showcase your gifts and talents as the Sun enters dramatic Leo, and make sure you're a good team-player when the Moon turns full in Aquarius!

July 22: Mars conjuncts Jupiter
July 27: Mars opposes Pluto
Jupiter in Cancer will oppose Pluto in Capricorn next month, signaling a time when social policies and your beliefs about the world will undergo a transformation. This week, action planet Mars activates this opposition, giving you the energy and courage to make changes in your life that will benefit you and your family. Tread carefully, though, for bullies are everywhere right now! If you keep your eyes on the greater good and behave in a way that makes you proud, you'll be able to accomplish a great deal this week!

July 22: Venus enters Virgo
When relationship planet Venus enters practical Virgo, love manifests through tangible acts. It's what you do that counts, not what you say. What sort of things can you do to make your loved ones' lives easier? Pick up groceries on the way home from work, complete a house project that's been on your to-do list, or perhaps plan a date night. Venus will be in Virgo until August 16.

July 22: The Sun enters Leo
No matter what you want, people need to know your desires so they can help you. As the Sun shines brightly on dramatic Leo, step into your own spotlight and showcase your best self! There's a reason so many celebrities are natives of this sign: They certainly know how to command attention! Use this time to escape others' orbits and put yourself in the center of your own solar system. The Sun will be in Leo until August 22.

July 22: Full Moon in Aquarius
This full Moon occurs immediately after the Sun's entrance into Leo. Since Aquarius champions teamwork, make sure that while you try to get yourself noticed, you also consider others' needs as well! This is a perfect time to get involved in group projects or invest in your community. One thing is for certain: You won't want to be alone during this social full Moon! Get together with friends, go to a party, or volunteer for a group whose cause you support. Just remember that with Saturn squaring the full Moon, take care to not over-schedule!
