Wednesday, July 31

A New Moon in roaring Leo headlines the Skywatch today, and there’s good news in the Skywatch as Mercury finally ends his three-week Retrograde cycle at 8:58 pm this evening.

Along the way Luna conjuncts sweet Venus at 1:51 pm PDT setting up a stellar time to flirt, ask favors and get a haircut.

An unexpected reaction is likely when the Moon squares unpredictable Uranus at 4:54 pm.

The New Moon pulls exact at 8:12 pm. This is a good night to try something new and to plant a seed.

As times change.

Tuesday, July 30.

Mixed signals. The Moon opposes serious Saturn at 6:57 am PDT but then trines creative and compassionate Neptune at 11:15 am.

Another opposition follows as the Moon opposes intense Pluto at 4:27 pm. Oppositions either help you teeter-totter with others or set up a gunfight over who’s right.

News is likely to find you tonight as the Moon meets Retrograde Mercury in the heavens at 8:33 pm. Clear skies follow.

As times change.

Monday, July 29

Jumpy. The Moon enters sensitive Cancer at 4:31 am PDT early Monday morning and then squares jumpy Uranus at 3:37 pm.

The big event in the Skywatch today shows up at 4:13 pm when the Sun also squares unpredictable and rebellious Uranus. In power all day and night, this square unhinges some folks and brings out erratic tendencies and foolish thinking in the reckless.

This is not a good day to buy cars, computers, or anything high tech - all ruled by Uranus.

As times change.

If your birthday is this week (July 28–August 3)

Both Venus and Mars are in Leo in your new Solar Return, Leo. Love and energy are highlighted this year - it’s time to display your talents and gifts, but stick to the truth as Uranus squares your Sun and Venus - opening the door to changes and unexpected reactions from others and big problems.

Lucky Jupiter in home sign Sagittarius in your chart of a new year gives you green lights to travel, get more education and to have an adventure in the months ahead. Stay focused and on track, Leo, and this can be a banner year.

As times change.

THE WEEKEND: July 27 – 28

There’s nothing holding you back on Saturday. The Moon in clever Gemini sextiles the Sun at 7:16 am PDT and then meanders out into calm skies for the rest of the day and night.

Caution lights are up on Sunday. The Moon sextile Mars for a burst of energy at 5:45 am PDT, but sails on to square dreamy Neptune at 8:25 am and then turn Void of Course until Monday morning. Hold off on making important purchases and decisions with the Moon V/C and Mercury still Retrograde. Best to keep it simple Sunday night. As times change.

Green lights. This is an excellent day for shopping and important business.

The Moon in practical Taurus trines analytical Pluto a 7:57 am PDT and then sails out into calm seas. Afternoon hours are the best for important calls as Luna sextiles Mercury Rx at 2:44 pm.

And evening hours are good for social plans as the Moon in Venus-ruled Taurus sextiles Venus at 9:28 pm.

The Moon turn turns Void of Course until she enters Gemini at 11:29 pm and you get a fresh charge of energy and might stay up late.
