July 22: Leo Season Begins!

July 22: Leo Season Begins!

The sun enters Leo at 1:37 a.m.

Shortly after midnight, the sun crosses another sign boundary into proud and regal Leo. Leo is ruled by the sun, making our solar star happy and at home in the Lion’s season. In this sign, the sun can be as potent and radiant as it can be, making this season an excellent time to observe solar rituals and set powerful intentions into motion.

This year has hosted some of the most difficult astrological configurations that have propelled forces of change into action, so we can enjoy the sun at its height, and celebrate in the ways that we are able. Leo season is sure to reconnect us with our courage, creativity, and will help charge up our hearts with optimism and goodwill.


Mercury is sextile Uranus at 1:25 p.m.

The moon enters Virgo at 4:40 p.m., and moon void of course ends

In the early afternoon, Mercury in sentimental Cancer forms a supportive sextile aspect with radical Uranus in abundant Taurus. This aspect is excellent for creative writing, innovative thought, and presents opportunities to use our material resources adaptively. With the newfound ease and optimism at the start of Leo season, the spirit of invention is in the air, and the free-flowing sextile between Mercury and Uranus helps us chart a new course. Conversations may feel unusually swift and electric now, as we exchange rapid-fire ideas and finish each other’s sentences.

By late afternoon, the moon leaves wild Leo to enter poised Virgo, turning lunar energies back inward toward a mood of reflection and receptivity. The moon is now waxing in light, slowly growing in strength and potency in the sky, and the Virgoan themes of utilization and order become a central focus. This lunar shift also ends the moon void of course phase, making this a good time to channel the Virgo urges to clean, sort, and analyze toward necessary, yet satisfying projects.
