Sunday, AUGUST 1
Mercury aligns with the Sun in the sign of Leo today, offering us a nice window of opportunity for seeing our goals more clearly in the areas of self-expression, play, courage, pleasure, creativity, and romance. This superior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun can stimulate an epiphany, illumination of a matter, or a clearing of the air. We are sharp, communicative, and open at this time, and what we say or write now has a strong impact, for better or worse! An idea or plan can come to full bloom. We may want to watch for intellectualizing issues that require sensitivity, however.
Both the Sun and Mercury oppose Saturn, and under these influences, we may communicate harshly, sparingly, or reluctantly. It can be difficult to trust our instincts, and we second-guess things automatically under this influence. The desire to enjoy ourselves can clash with our material goals. Doubts might slow down our movements and initiatives. Even so, this can be a helpful process as we take a break from pushing ahead. We might now see the need to adjust our plans based on new responsibilities or a reality check. Our efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase our confidence in our ability to be responsible for ourselves.
Ideally, as we face obstacles, we begin to see the tools we have to overcome them. Revelations now can lead to a stronger sense of mission or purpose in the coming days. Focusing too much on our feelings may not be very productive right now. This is a time for reevaluating goals, taking into better account the limits of time and energy. It can be a good time for developing real solutions to long-term problems and for recognizing the meaning behind recent restrictions or limitations. We might acknowledge the need to adopt a humbler, more mature, and possibly more conservative approach. We might also need to catch up on neglected duties or responsibilities.
