We welcome the Sun King Leo on Saturday, July 22, 2017. Don’t be surprised if there are sudden, unexplained cravings for sparklers, sequins and confetti. Just go with it. The Sun rules the 5th sign of the Zodiac and you can tell. We’ll feel strong, upbeat, magnanimous, a bit more dramatic and drawn to the spotlight regardless of our actual Astrology sign. Leo doesn’t get shyness. We are urged to seek attention, to be colorfully creative and to cheerfully accomplish goals. As the Sun settles into this regal Fire sign, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay.
Verbal and written interactions become livelier and sharper due to Communication planet Mercury’s Leo transit from 7/6 to 7/26/17. Remember to share the conversation, let someone else get a word in – it’s not all about you.
Adding to the energy will be aggressive “Warrior” Mars transiting Leo, 7/21 til 9/4/17. Being overly confident and perhaps impatient for attention, might lead to taking risks just to be first in front of the camera – real or imaginary. This could make us sloppy and reckless. Check the parachute before attempting the longest free fall airplane drop in the Guinness Book of Records. (Verify the distance between drop height & ground) Preen for the close up once safely on land.
Basking in a Leo Sun can be a good time. Enjoy!
Sun into Leo: July 22, 2017 * 11:16 AM EDT / 8:16 AM PDT
*Gemstone – Tiger’s Eye *Power colors- Gold, orange (Sun colors) * Body Part – Heart (…of a lion!)
(Next up – Virgo Sun 8/22/17)
The Moon will be in rambunctious Aries from Friday afternoon, 7/14, until Sunday night, 7/16/17. When the Lunar orb transits the 1st sign of the Zodiac, which is ruled by warrior planet Mars, we feel braver and more physical, more “up for anything”. Depending upon what the “anything” is, it could be the best of times or the most precarious of times.
Aries = energy and you probably won’t want to sit around for too long in one place. Take advantage of the urge for action and movement – do something exciting, do something different.
However, keep cool, keep the peace, keep the flame thrower in the closet. But, still have a dynamic weekend!
On Saturday, 7/15/17, there will be spoken word events, over 200 exhibit booths, music, panel discussions and children’s activities will be on hand at the Harlem Book Fair. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday in the city.
“The vision of the Harlem Book Fair is to partner with local
and national leadership organizations under the banner of literacy
awareness, affirming HBF as the nation’s largest African American
literary event celebrating family literacy, community empowerment,
and community cooperation. “

The earthy, Saturn ruled, 10th sign of the Zodiac is about ambition, authority, duty. Capricorn leans towards long term goals, managing a career, creating success (whatever that means to you) and reaching for the top. Are your personal actions and business strategies producing results?
If feeling the need to change and / or move forward, take the time to figure out a path to handle what is necessary. We can use Capricorn’s Full Moon energy to finalize and complete projects, activate plans that can move you closer to what we want.
*Capricorn Full Moon: 12:07 AM EDT 7/9/17 – 9:07 PM PDT 7/08/17
