Your Weekly Horoscope for July 24–30, 2022: Celebrating an Audacious New Moon in Leo

July 24, 2022

This week kicks off with initial conflict on Monday, July 25, as Venus in Cancer squares Jupiter in Aries, causing tension between the motherly minor benefic and the fiery major benefic. A cardinal clash is less than ideal, but squares represent an opportunity to compromise. When Venus lends its intuition and Jupiter amplifies its instincts, obstacles will be overcome with genial initiation. Take the lead in expanding upon relationships, commitments, financial security, and creative processes!

Afterward, Mercury in Leo steals the show for the rest of the week by creating square after square with Mars in Taurus on Tuesday, July 26, then Uranus in Taurus on Thursday, July 28, and finally the North Node in Taurus on Friday, July 29. 

When the dramatic cosmic messenger clashes with the stable warring planet, it may produce tense tit-for-tat exchanges. Pride may get in the way of having a productive dialogue, so there might be issues with active listening or being open-minded to a different perspective. Try not to get into unnecessary arguments since it will be like talking to a wall!

Then the theatrical cosmic messenger will disagree with the seemingly stable wild child, suggesting that there could be room for growth if ego is put aside. Semi-steady Uranus is ready to revamp Mercury’s mental waves, encouraging a more thoughtful than a self-focused approach to avoid any clashes.

Finally, the cosmic messenger disagrees with the Nodes of fate and destiny. Since Mercury squares the North Node, it also subsequently squares the South Node. There may be repeating mental or communicative patterns that pop up throughout Friday. Consider how you can break your Mercurial cycle!

New Moon in Leo

A playful new cycle begins as the new moon in Leo demands celestial prominence on Thursday, July 28. Since the lunar luminary is reporting to the solar luminary, there is an emphasis on having an immense depth of self-awareness.

Throughout the next six months, the new moon in Leo invites us to be the main character in our lives. Consider this a new season of your life with an exciting storyline, supporting side characters, and maybe a doable budget for a slight makeover that fits your budding identity. As we assume our position in the limelight, the new moon will steadily progress through opportunities for self-development. 

However, bravado must be put aside to gain genuine confidence throughout this solar-powered lunar cycle. Honoring creativity is an excellent way to become more self-assured with debuting talents, honing passion projects, exploring sensuality, entertaining romance, and becoming comfortable with one’s means of self-expression.  

Jupiter stations Retrograde

Another planet bites the dust as Jupiter stations retrograde in Aries on Thursday, July 28. Regressing the expansive planet can be challenging, especially in an action-focused sign like Aries. However, Jupiter retrograde is necessary to reconsider its means of excess, exploration, worldview, and beliefs.

From now until October 28, Jupiter retrograde in Aries will reassess the individualistic journey of self-exploration and identity. Instead of optimistically charging forward like a toddler on a manic mission to discover the world through impetuous impulsivity, Jupiter retrograde reels this headstrong energy in.  

This phase of Jupiter retrograde is a self-focused philosophical period, so consider these questions during the next few months; Do you think your morals, ethics, and belief systems are an extension of your highest self? How can you make your own luck by taking the initiative? What kind of leader do you aspire to be?

By October 28, Jupiter retrograde will recede even further into the sign of Pisces, slipping back into the subconscious realm.
