Weekly Scope July 22nd -July 28th
Look toward the horizon, the Sun is rising. It’s the dawn of Leo season. Last week, you may have felt some major emotions rise up between the Lunar Eclipse and the Sun traveling though the last degrees of Cancer. Now is the time to take those emotions and do something creative with them. If emotions are buried deep, now’s when you figure out how they become a part of your essence.
Go toward the Sun. Don’t be hindered by the story of Icarus. Seth Godin brings up a good point about the myth of Icarus. A part of the story has been left out in more recent times to better fit the mentality of the Industrial Revolution to keep workers in their place. Yes, Icarus was instructed to not fly too close to the Sun, but he was also instructed to not fly too low or the ocean would swallow him up. It’s about finding your perfect place in the Sun, the one meant just for you.
Happy Leo season!

Aries Mar 21st – Apr 19th Hello Aries! You are entering a phase of transformation and change. This time of deep transformation is likely to take place both inner and outwardly in your life. Sometimes change can be uncomfortable and difficult, particularly if the life we are leading feels as if it is being hit with a destructive force. The Divine wants you to remember that old saying that “When one door closes, another will open”. This is especially true for you at this time, so muster the strength and courage to step through the door that is opening for you. The change and transformation occurring is happening in all areas of your life: work, social, love, health, and spiritual. This is a great time to release self-limiting beliefs, attitudes, and relationships that no longer serve your highest good. Allow yourself to feel what you feel, but don't wallow in pain or sorrow; if you need help pulling yourself away from any pain or loss that you are suffering, reach out. More people care about you than you realize. Managing your stress levels is key at this time in order to stay in good health. If you need healing on the physical and spiritual plane, ask for it. Throughout this phase of change and renewal you would do best to embrace a positive attitude. You will emerge stronger for it.
Taurus Apr 20th – May 20th Hello Taurus! The Divine would like you to take a logical, organized and disciplined approach to all aspects of your life this week. This is the time to be honest with yourself. How is your health? How are things for you financially? Take an honest look at all parts of your life and see where you can bring order and discipline to make things work better for you. This will help you progress and be successful. With regards to your health, perhaps you need to start tracking food and exercise and being more disciplined with sticking to a plan. If you are having health issues, start tracking your symptoms and look for correlations to other areas of your life. In the workplace, know that your efforts are being noticed, but pay particular attention to organization and follow-through with your endeavors. Signs are pointing to a male energy, perhaps older than you, entering into some area of your life. Look to this fatherly figure to assist you in understanding the value of structure and logic, particularly when dealing with emotions and lesser desires. The Divine also wants to be sure you take time for yourself and honor your need for spiritual growth. Meditation could come easier to you at this time if you make the effort.
Gemini May 21st – Jun 20th Hello Gemini! This week should usher in positive energy and an all around good feeling. Something that you have started a while ago could start to show progress and come to fruition. There is a need for new ideas, new approaches or new adventures. The positive energy to pursue a new path will be there for you, however you must be willing to provide the follow-through in order for success. This can be a very creative time for you, and a good time for you to actually become childlike: dream, play, and be inventive. If you are looking for a new job or relationship, chances are that this is the week where you could find success in that endeavor. But you must put forth effort for this to happen. If you are concerned with your overall health, Spirit is guiding you to take control and make the necessary nutritional and exercise changes needed. Take control as nothing happens by wishing it so. All in all, this should be a positive week for you.
Cancer Jun 21st – Jul 22nd Hello Cancer! This week the Divine is asking you to keep your mind focused on what you do want in your life, rather than what you don’t want. You possess the ability to control your thoughts and use them for the highest good for yourself and others. Patience is one of your virtues, so restrain your impulses, overcome your fears and be patient with yourself and what you are involved with at this time. Since it is of utmost importance to keep your mind in a place of clarity, you should make the time to meditate or at the very least spend time alone to do some serious thinking or intention work. You may find that this week you will be surprised at how well things are working out for you in most areas of your life. Use your self-confidence and inner strength at work or in romance to seek out what you truly want. You could find that you have more options than you thought possible at work, or that your romantic life is working out better than you had first thought. Spirit gives you the reminder that you are strong – most likely stronger than you think. When times get difficult or at a low point, use your inner strength, focus your thoughts on the positive and watch things change for the better.
Leo Jul 23rd – Aug 22nd Hello Leo! This week the Divine is guiding you to tap into your ambitious side. You may feel like you are being thrown into competitive situations in all areas of your life, particularly at work or quite possibly in the arena of romance. Pull on your ambition to help you get past being tentative about competing. Believe in yourself and know that you have something to offer and can certainly experience success. But you can’t have successful results if you don’t try. Be cautious not to engage in playing dirty like others around you may be doing. Going in that direction will only bring about a temporary result and you want success that is permanent. Through all the competitive situations happening around you, make sure you take time to rest and do nothing. Allowing yourself some time and space to just be could help you grow spiritually as well as have a positive affect on your health.
Virgo Aug 23rd- Sep 22nd Hello Virgo! The energy flowing around and within you is moving well and freely. This week things should be going well, projects should be progressing right on track, and in general you should be feeling pretty good. The Divine asks you to take any moments of self-doubt or possible fear and dispel them, as that will disrupt this positive energy flow. Be confident to speak your truth and let people know where you stand on issues and situations. Trust that your mind has clarity and your thinking is clear, which could help others by showing them how things truly are. Be careful to employ tact, however. This energy flow you are in right now could set things in motion for a positive change to occur either in your personal or work life. Keep thinking for yourself remaining independent of other’s influences. Put energy into your future, making decisions that are well thought out and based in research. Turn your worry and fears to your advantage in order to grow stronger to face what is ahead. Enjoy the positive energy flow this week.
Libra Sep 23rd – Oct 22nd Hello Libra! This week Spirit is really pushing you to focus on the work at hand. This is not a time for play but rather a time to put the nose to the grindstone and work hard until the work or project is complete. You are being guided to take the time to learn new skills. Take advantage of any training offered to you, as with proper training your skills and discipline will improve. Training and new skills is just part of what you need to do in order to become better at what you do. This will also take lots of practice. So keep perfecting your craft through consistent practice. Going forward use your knowledge to create new opportunities for yourself. Karma brings good things your way; you will reap the benefits of past work.
Scorpio Oct 23rd – Nov 21st Hello Scorpio! Of utmost importance for you this week is a positive attitude and mindset. Do your best to keep your mind focused on your goals and what is for your highest good. You may be tempted to indulge in past behaviors that no longer serve you but you find hard to resist at this time. The Divine is guiding you to remember that when you are feeling restrained or tempted by that which no longer serves your highest good, that you always hold the keys to your own freedom from such restraints or old patterns. You may feel that you have no control over your journey in life right now, but you always have options to choose from no matter what your situation. Take whatever steps you can to give yourself the feeling of being even just slightly in control. Remember small steps are important and can move you forward as well. Be on guard not to get overtired, overworked or overstressed at this time. Movement or exercise will help with this. So when feeling restrained, restricted, or possibly trapped with any area of your life right now, remember you have the power to break free and move toward your goals. Surround yourself with upbeat positive people who are not overly critical. Keep focused, positive and don't give up hope!
Sagittarius Nov 22nd – Dec 21st Hello Sagittarius! This week you may feel that you are stuck at a crossroads with only two options from which you can choose. The Divine would like you to relax and look at way in which to let go of trying to control life, situations, or people, particularly when you feel as if you want to do “something” but are not sure what that may be. With regards to your love life, it is time to release an attitude or desire that has become outdated or no longer serves you. This allows for something that is more positive to enter. For example, you may need to "let go" of the idea of a certain kind of relationship as being the only way that you can be happy. It is important now to let go of any beliefs and thoughts that are negative and self-limiting. Be very careful about what you allow yourself to say or think about our life. Make sure the goals you are making resemble the life you really wish to see.
Capricorn Dec. 22nd - Jan 19th Hello Capricorn! This week you may feel as though you are carrying a very heavy burden. You may want to look hard at this and see if there are any ways that you can lighten your load either literally or figuratively. Spirit is guiding you to look carefully and ascertain if part of the emotional burdens you are carrying actually belong to someone else. If so, release that emotional worry as you have more than enough at this time to deal with of your own. Looking at your situation calmly and dispassionately, and making a plan will best serve you. Avoiding the problems will not make them disappear. Be creative in your problem solving and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Taking good care of yourself and finding ways to relieve your stress, is especially critical now.

This situation will likely require you to be somewhat aggressive yet nimble. This is a time for action not reflection.
