Mercury is in your sign all month, Leo, going retrograde on the 14th, to be joined by the sun on the 22nd. This influence puts the emphasis on your conscious mind and increases your charisma. The vibe is fun and playful. The spotlight is on you and your awareness. The month is right up your alley, all the more so because Venus continues to light up your popularity sector all month.
Leo is a sign of leadership, and if you’re one of those leader-y Leos, it’s time to capitalize on your personal qualities. You can arouse both devotion and enthusiasm if you’ve got something to sell that’s worth buying.
Even Mars will help your cause as he finally moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Mars in Libra emphasizes instead your skills, talents, and abilities on an interpersonal, physical, and mental level. And he’s not a bad salesman either.
Furthermore, if you have a dream of getting a degree, the time is good to start looking into the process of getting one. Jupiter, the higher education planet, is transiting your sector of hopes and wishes and dreams for the next 12 months. One of the implications of Jupiter in your solar 11th house is that educational aspirations that normally seem far-fetched are potentially possible with a bit of faith and luck.
The first thing you’ll want to do to take advantage of Jupiter, whether you want a formal degree or not, is to polish up and hone your language skills. The current combination of Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in Libra is unusually supportive of the use of language to get what you want. Ponder on that and see what brilliant idea you can come up with to take advantage of the timing.
Now let’s talk about your work for a bit. Pluto in Capricorn in your job sector has been slowly, methodically, and thoroughly working toward the goal of increasing your responsibilities in the workplace. He’s been fighting with chaotic Uranus in Aries who cannot wrap his head around the notion of buckling down and concentrating on productivity. Uranus in Aries has been worried that if you put your nose to the grindstone without sufficient reflection, you’ll sign up for some job path that you’ll never be able to get out of.
Uranus thinks that if you make a decision, you’ll be stuck for life! Uranus finally backs off this line of resistance for a bit at mid-month. You may feel an actual shift around the 13th, and burdens at work may feel less burdensome. Things may get a little bit more fun or the pressure to make a decision may ease.
