The Stars This Week: July 28 - August 3, 2014
Be Bold!

This is no week to hide in the shadows, as Mercury begins its transit through showy Leo on July 31! On August 1, you'll find yourself with plenty of irons in the fire as action planet Mars squares expansive Jupiter! And if you hope to stand a great chance of success, you'll need to make a few changes once the Sun quincunxes Pluto on August 3!

July 31: Mercury enters Leo
As the communication planet enters the dramatic sign of Leo (where it joins the Sun and Jupiter), you'll have plenty to say -- and so will everyone else! If you've been waiting to get your ideas out into the world, you won't want to miss this chance. Speak with authority and behave in a dignified manner to get the most attention. Many people want to get noticed right now, so you're certain to be in competition with a crowd. Just keep in mind that Leo is all about respect -- how you treat others, and how others treat you. To make the most of this transit, which lasts until August 15, make sure you offer the same type of respect you hope to receive!

August 1: Mars squares Jupiter
Multiple projects need your attention now, and you may wonder where you should invest your time and energy. This aspect offers an abundance of energy, but even so, don't try to do everything! You have plenty of people who support your plans, so let them lend a hand. Mars in Scorpio gives you the determination and stamina to succeed in reaching your goals; Jupiter in Leo provides an influential person or people who can help you. You may feel that if you don't take advantage of every opportunity that comes along, you're bound to fail. The truth is, you'll fare best if you commit to projects that mean the most to you. Your leadership skills and creativity are your best friends right now, so use them!

August 3: The Sun quincunxes Pluto
You're likely feeling confident as the Sun transits though Leo, but now you must make a significant adjustment -- not only to take into account the larger picture, but to become more sensitive to the needs of others. Make sure your ego doesn't get in the way of what you need to hear. People have valuable information for you. Also, don't be so attached to your goals that you can't make changes to them if circumstances require it. Finally, if you remain thoughtful and weigh your choices carefully, you'll make good decisions!
