Dream big, but do it from the ground. That's the message for the next, few days.
The Sun enters Leo today, and will conjunct Jupiter (at 1 degree Leo) from July 22nd to July 24th. That's a massive hit of Jupiter in Leo optimism (the Sun will spotlight Jupiter, as if Jupiter needed a spotlight). The over the top idea, the urge to grab someone's attention, the desire to cut loose and play...that's what this energy is about. The light of hope and entitlement will be so bright that it may burn away all your doubts and worries (temporarily).
And, from July 22nd to July 24th, Venus (love, money, self-esteem) in Cancer will form a dreamy trine with Neptune Rx in Pisces (exact at 7 degrees). This suggests escapism, the romantic dream, the big "what if?" This all feels sooo nice so far. It's all possible!
But (there's always a but). Mercury in Cancer will be forming a hard square to Uranus Rx in Aries (at 16 degrees) from July 23rd to 24th, and Mercury will also be forming a sobering trine to Saturn (at 16 degrees Scorpio) and Chiron (at 17 degrees Pisces) from July 23rd to 25th. This is your wake up call from the big, beautiful hope. Words/conversations (Mercury) will be jarring yet clarifying (Uranus). The slap that adjusts your focus. But Mercury's trine to Saturn (limits) and Chiron (Wounded Healer) forms a brief Grand Water Trine, which means you can lick your wounds in the balm of reality. Yes, the truth may not be so bad. Actually, it may be better and more reliable than the initial radioactive glow of possibility.
It all adds up to this: the big "Yes" is a possibility (for real). But you'll have to deal with the reality of your situation. If you stray too far into dream land, the Uranus/Mercury square will bite hard. But the Grand Water Trine between Mercury, Saturn and Chiron suggests support, empathy and a helpful outlet if you want to discuss, write, plan.
See what you want, then back up and do the math.
Mars is moving into Scorpio on July 25th, and there's a New Moon in Leo coming up on July 26th (featuring Jupiter and Mars). I'll write about this tomorrow. For now, use these influences to consider the dream, but stay in touch with reality.
