You’re pondering deeply, Leo, which is always very sexy – and you will do so again after Monday, July 1 when sexy Mars enters your sign. And keeps you hot and irresistible until August 17! Use your power to cut through the confusion of Mercury retrograde which occurs in your sign July 7 until July 31. It simply means a look you’d wanted to achieve will have delays, and you’re meant to go ZEN and appreciate Vesta which nevertheless lights you up like The Statue of Liberty after June 26.
I feel a comeback coming on, possibly you with someone else attached. A very exciting project is launched, rather explosively, by the lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn, by July 16.
But first, on Tuesday, July 2, there’s a total solar eclipse at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer. The eclipse point itself is sextile Uranus and opposing Saturn so expect the unexpected – and quite dramatically so – wherever you have Cancer in your chart. (If you don’t have any planets in Cancer, look at where Cancer appears on the outside of your chart.)
The U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. It will be felt most deeply on Independence Day.
For you, Leo – look at your twelfth house (Cancer on the outside of your chart, also if you are Leo rising), ruling your hidden self, your secrets, and your quiet-time in general. This, no doubt, will have been affected already, but July 2 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In your most private area, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
For everyone, needless to say, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and particularly on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine (physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath.)
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 16, with the partial lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
You reach the end of a grueling routine as early as June 28. And then it’s time for your private space, a “room of your own” as Virginia Woolf described it. To heal yourself rather than holding up others for a change! And let loose into uncharted waters, explore your broader horizons, and work – secretly – on a new plan you have in mind. I say secretly because it’s all in your twelfth house, the most hidden zone of the zodiac. In here, you find your ideas, your intuition, your solitude, and your deepest spirituality.
If you can get away to an actual retreat, all the better. You must honor more selfish “me” time. You think up a brilliant business plan, creative idea, beautiful design. This time before your birthday is quieter and more reflective than usual.
You are in a serious gestation period. Percolating, not ready to be born yet, nor to be revealed publicly.
You’ll have it all together — you must finalize the details for yourself now — as soon as the end of July! But for now, it is like you are living in a submarine. Surrounded by all that deep water, which rules intuition and the unconscious. Because of this you can trust your psychic insights, which will be very powerful now.
As July progresses, that missing person comes back. But…and it’s a big but. Literally anything can happen. For now, all you know is you need to spend time with your dreams again.
Someone close to you has been distant, and this has been painful. Through worry, illness or problems of their own. Not for you to take personally, nor having anything to do with you! Be compassionate and patient, Leo, as only you know how to do.
And let the power of the twelfth sector work its magic on you!
For, in your twelfth sector of healing, you have:
Life-giving Sun (your natural ruler)
Sharp-thinking Mercury (going into retrograde July 7 to July 310
Planet of love and beauty Venus
That solar eclipse and new Moon on Tuesday, July 2
And what all does your twelfth house rule?
Your twelfth house, traditionally ruled by psychic Pisces, rules:
Gestation before birth
Your buried self
Lessons, usually born of sorrow (be grateful for them)
Your psychic gifts
Healing and therapy: WHY do you sacrifice so much?
Places of confinement, including hospitals and prisons
To many of you: it is important to remember that you’re not alone.
The twelfth house rules solitude and being in the background rather than the foreground.
But until then – as you must say to your children – take a Time Out. It will push you forward more than you could ever have dreamed, sacrifices included, and you will have better karma for it.
A Leo rules herself. But a Leo who streamlines at the right times rules the world. As you will do! You are weeding out the closets of your life in a brilliant, brave, and extraordinary way.
And what you need to streamline now is your priorities. You have so many options in your career life – a million pots a bubbling on the stove – but you will succeed the best if you narrow them all down. To one or two, to which you give your all.
Which you know you can do.
And, actually, now you know you must do.
Or choose to remain unfulfilled — which is not the way for the royal Lion – no, not at all!
Congratulations! You are finding your power, finding your true passion.
For those of you who have been pulled back into the darkness too many times — and darkness is at odds with your natural self, the SUN, after all — this will feel like a strange and mysterious time.
The end of June may at times seem to have a kind of milky fog around it. You may just feel utterly exhausted, as in blurry, with no sleep. It’s a very short period, however, and nothing to be worried about. What it really is is a translucent sheet of protection offered by the universe for you to go through your almighty change.
Remember, change, even when it is the best thing, is traumatic in its very nature.
Whether you are getting the itch to throw out old clothes or sell an old (albeit lovely) albatross around your neck – go with it.
With the universe’s protection, you will see the fine results most dramatically in your work and your creativity.
The great astrologer Debbi Kempton-Smith calls the twelfth house the God box, and I have to agree. This is where you go when you want to receive your ideas. After you respectfully ask for them. Your solitude must be honored.
A loved one may have betrayed you harshly. You may have had to wait longer in your quest for birth (waiting, I believe, is the hardest part of the human condition). You may have been feeling like a version of Sartre’s existential angst.
You learn much this July.
It is better for you to go your own way, have some quiet alone time, than to head directly into the fray. The Sun, and your glorious ruler, is in your twelfth house of seclusion, and you will gain many psychic insights if you spend some time in there! Mysteries will be solved, and hidden feelings revealed.
You’ve been sympathetic, generous, and kind. You’ve given time to helping everyone else, so naturally you need a break for yourself now.
Well…Only one warning. There’s a little chaos and people-stirring-up in the cards for you this month. Flirtations are fraught with danger if you’re already attached. I’m only here to advise you to keep your royal bearing. To not lose your dignity and cool.
Whatever you do, you won’t lose material things. Your financial sector is protected.
You do deserve to have it all.
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Leo Sun and Leo Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
(Eastern) Wednesday, July 3 after 11:19pm; all of Thursday, July 4; all of Friday, July 5; Wednesday, July 31 after 9:18am.
I look forward to speaking with you, Leo!
Take care. With love, Madalyn
