Weekly Horoscope by Micheal O'Connor

Horoscope for the week: July 21, 2017
 
Tip of the Week:
‘Leo Time’ begins when the Sun enters the sign of the lion on July 22 at 8:15 am PDT. The Tropical Zodiac divides the year based on the intimate relationship shared between Sun and Earth. This relationship can be understood to produce the Solstices and Equinoxes which divide the year into 4 seasons. This is the Zodiac that Western Astrology, also called Tropical Astrology, which has been in use for about two thousand years, is based on. While this system does incorporate the constellations ‘of’ the Zodiac, it is not strictly based on them. As simple as this fact is, a surprising amount of people seem unwilling or psychologically unable to acknowledge, accept or understand it. 
 
So, Leo time begins at this time each year and lasts for one month. Although the weather can certainly vary from year to year due to larger cycles of influence, what remains significantly the same as the particular amount of sunlight in terms of when the Sun officially rises and sets and both the distance and the angle of relationship that produces the particular quality of solar radiation for this time. Here in the Northern Hemisphere we generally experience it as the hottest month of the year. 
 
The New Moon in Leo occurs on July 23rd at 2:46 am PDT. It is followed shortly after by a conjunction between the Moon and Mars also in Leo. This combination of cycles, each lasting about 1 month, indicates an exciting and dramatic period. These words also serve to describe the overall tone of 2017. Whether one is focused on the devastating fires in British Columbia or the line-up of new leaders on the world stage doing what they are destined to do, or otherwise, we do indeed live in interesting times.
 
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)
A playful, passionate and dramatic cycle continues. You feel excited and want to experience as many angles of it as you can. While this mood will linger for several weeks, Mercury in Virgo (Jul. 25 – Aug 31) will bring in a more cerebral, analytical and practical focus and will possibly produce a sobering effect. 
 
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Quality time enjoyed close to home is a priority now. Yet, you do not simply want to be idle and playful. You want to get things done. Creative projects that have a productive result will prove the most satisfying. Completing things already initiated will have better results than trying to start anything new. 
 
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Those waves of creative inspiration that began flowing in a few weeks ago are getting bigger. Now you are really ready to dive in. With your energy levels rising steadily, you will feel extra motivated over the coming weeks. This can also manifest as the desire to get out and about, to be social and enjoy performances and other such cultural events.
 
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your ambitions are on the rise. Yet, you also want to have fun. How can you combine both? There are indications that you generally feel happy and confident these days. While you are generally happy and willing to give to people and circumstances, the truth may be that you would prefer to lay low and socialize less, for now.
 
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The New Moon in your sign will activate your pioneering spirit. The creative sparks have already been active for a few weeks but now finally the ignition is firing your engines. Inspirations to socialize will also rise. Yet, you too will feel the pull of practical interests with Mercury in Virgo. Positively, this can prove to be a very productive period.
 
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
If you have been waiting to be productive with projects that require undisturbed creative concentration, this is it. You may still require assistance, however. Acquiring new tools, skills and techniques are indicated. For best results, keep an open mind and be willing to listen and learn yet also take a creative lead and assert your own ideas.
 
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)
The time has come to access and express your sense of originality. While the desire to do so will be strong, gaining mental clarity to do so may prove challenging over the coming weeks. But, this week it is strong so begin new projects now. Outline your ideas and strategy so you can work with this blueprint during the Mercury retrograde storm.
 
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Your public and professional life is about to get a big boost. Are you ready and wanting more recognition? If so, a wonderful window of opportunity is opening. The main issue to overcome will be over enthusiasm leading to overconfidence and/or over extending yourself. There are some safeguards in place to prevent this but now you are consciously alerted, as well.
 
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
An exciting cycle is about to begin. It will last for a couple of months. It could also be described as an adventurous period. So, expect it to include some challenges as well. Staying confident is probably the main thing to monitor. This will prove especially true in a few weeks. Positively, this should prove to be a fun and empowering cycle.
 
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your ambitions are on the rise. A backdrop of changes and completions, especially linked to close, personal relationships, provide the setting. If these changes have not occurred regarding attitudes, expectations and behavior patterns, this could prove to be a dramatic cycle during which literal endings of relationships are likely. 
 
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
An exciting, lively and dynamic cycle on relationships fronts is set to begin. Your energy levels will be high as will be your desire to satisfy your curiosities. Together, these constitute a recipe for fun in the sun and quality times shared with friends and lovers. You could also get a lot done regarding practical matters, next week.
 
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Completing projects and beginning new ones will be apparent this week. This change of the guard in terms of your focus will prove satisfying. The biggest challenge includes speaking your truth, diplomatically, and not simply saying what others want to hear. This can also prove to be a very productive time, so get organized and get going.
