Transiting Uranus in Aries Trines the Sun in Leo

The Sun in Leo receives a freeing trine from Uranus retrograde (at 12 degrees Aries) from today to August 4th.

You've probably read on this blog (and other astrology blogs) that trines are passive. They're harmonious, but that harmony is precisely what makes them easy to overlook; there's no scratchy tension to grab you. But still...a trine is positive, and a trine between the liberator (Uranus) and the Sun in self-actualized Leo is worth noting.

Uranus will make it easy for Leo issues (creativity, children, fun, flirting, romance, gambling, performance) to find expression. Uranus will be the push that sets the joy/performance/pride in motion.

To make most of this aspect, pick something that you've been putting off (something that involves Leo themes) and just do it. This isn't a life-changing influence, but it can make it easier for you to pluck up your courage and take that risk. Remember that Uranus retrograde is intensified freedom/change.

This is about fearless self-expression. 

If you have planets/angles from 9-12 degrees Leo or Aries, you'll be primed to make the most of this energy.
