Leo 23rd July - 22nd Aug
With the Sun not returning to your work sector for another 13 days, Venus' departure today has given you a real head start, in more ways than one. With Mercury on board you already have your head in the game and the means to walk the talk, but this has been held back by a need to work with Venus, to establish what you want. As Venus leaves this shifts the final weeks of your professional year into a very different gear, one that is more about walking the talk.
As she spends her first full day in your relationship sector Venus has a massive jump on your annual relationship review, which doesn't begin until later next month. Teaming up with Mars for the first time here before Christmas since 1971, the planets of love and passion are able to inject something into your relationships that has been missing. Without a need to keep it real and able to put off any relationship housekeeping until next year, this is more about spicing things up.
As important as it is to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground when it comes to money matters today, the less you can over think things the better. With the whole financial landscape in flux and some real breakthroughs possible, let your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses run their course and then run them through a reality check later. This is also a day for keeping your work hat on, but in a way that is more about listening to and trusting what your heart is telling you.
