The Leo new moon marks the beginning of another chapter in a joint money-making matter or, if nothing is on your plate, it can introduce a brand-new venture. Odd bits of information that previously eluded you could resurface while Mercury is retrograde, so be on the lookout and prick up your ears. The purpose of retrograde is to allow enough time to absorb a revised set of circumstances and reconsider your position. If an adjustment seems necessary, the good-natured Leo sun can help you avoid the more awkward moments.
The Aquarius-Leo axis is so magnetic, so pervasive it's hard to separate what happens with one sign from the other. Who is more popular, more beloved? During solar Leo, it's the sun-ruled Lions who draw most of the attention, but that's because Leos relish a celebration of any kind, not just their birthday. Nevertheless, the Water-Bearers are usually the ones pouring the drinks, giving the toasts, presenting the gifts and making sure that the group gathering for the occasion is compatible. However, this week your expectations can clash with reality.
No matter how absorbed you might be in one activity, each new moon kicks off a fresh cycle of events that'll engage your interest. Luckily for some Fish, the Leo new moon takes place in your house of recreation and romance, so summer fun will continue to be uppermost on your agenda until Labor Day. The others could find themselves drawn to a gig that promises more creative freedom than you already have. And with independent Uranus in your sign, that's saying something. Expect some opposition (friendly advice?) when the sun confronts your Neptune ruler on Monday.
