“EX­PRESS YOUR­SELF” — that’s the mes­sage of the sun, Venus, and Mer­cury all in Leo, with Venus and Mer­cury form­ing a trine with un­ex­pected, elec­tri­cal Uranus.

With this lineup in Leo, we can in­dulge in hy­per­bole or dra­matic ges­tures, tell won­der­ful sto­ries, in­spire crowds, or speak with ridicu­lous bom­bast. Our own feel­ings can sur­prise us with their dra­matic arc, and both po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary and fish­ing tales can sound un­be­liev­ably over-the-top — but just be­cause some­thing is an ex­ag­ger­a­tion, it doesn’t mean there isn’t some truth in­side.

Mars en­ters for­ward-think­ing, mo­bile Sagit­tar­ius next Tues­day af­ter many months brood­ing in Scor­pio. But this last week­end brings a re­view of our darker, more frus­trat­ing chal­lenges of 2016, of musty old re­sent­ments and un­solved mys­ter­ies. It of­fers a chance for res­o­lu­tion, but could also cat­alyze un­ex­pected or ex­plo­sive events; un­ex­pected Uranus ret­ro­grades on Fri­day just as ver­bal Mer­cury squares that en­er­gized Mars. Let’s keep our eyes open and choose not to ar­gue un­less it truly feels con­struc­tive.

A Gem­ini moon will help us ne­go­ti­ate this chal­leng­ing patch. Mer­cury en­ters its own sign of Virgo on Satur­day, and our thoughts be­gin to turn to­ward fall plans. We want de­tails. But there is a fresh wind com­ing that can turn our at­ten­tion to­ward a more hope­ful fu­ture. The new moon on Tues­day af­ter­noon be­gins an exciting time to share our hearts and shine. Mars en­ters Sagit­tar­ius and turns our at­ten­tion for­ward. We may be less sus­pi­cious than when Mars was in Scor­pio, and have a new need for truth and trans­parency all around.

FRI­DAY, JULY 29: A talk­a­tive Gem­ini moon can dis­tract us from more se­ri­ous work this morn­ing. Mer­cury squares Mars this af­ter­noon and may force some de­ci­sions or call for di­rect ac­tion. Pay at­ten­tion to avoid ac­ci­dents of dis­trac­tion.

SATUR­DAY, JULY 30: Me­an­der and let the soul re­new. Chew over cur­rent events, but con­sider wait­ing to dis­cuss ma­jor dif­fer­ences with beloveds un­til af­ter Tues­day. The evening brings an in­tro­spec­tive edge as Mer­cury en­ters Virgo and the moon en­ters Can­cer.

SUN­DAY, JULY 31: Morn­ing can be soft and spir­i­tu­ally hun­gry, but ex­pect emo­tional cross­winds later on. Old splin­ters come to the sur­face as the moon op­poses Pluto, and we can waste time sulk­ing or want­ing to be else­where. Look for new pos­si­bil­i­ties tonight in pol­i­tics or emo­tional re­la­tion­ships.

MON­DAY, AUG. 1: Make plans and put a good foot for­ward. Fol­low through on op­por­tu­ni­ties for work. Check health-re­lated con­cerns and change daily pat­terns to im­prove health. Peo­ple may be self-pro­tec­tive or eas­ily an­gered about old prob­lems on this last day of Mars in Scor­pio. En­ergy opens tonight as the moon en­ters ex­tro­verted Leo.

TUES­DAY, AUG. 2: This day brings new be­gin­nings as Mars en­ter Sagit­tar­ius and the sun and moon con­junct in Leo. We can choose to turn around, let go of some old wounds, and step with en­thu­si­asm into the fu­ture.

WEDNES­DAY, AUG. 3: No­tice a new buzz in the air. We have fresh in­ter­est in new answers, peo­ple, and places. Vis­i­bil­ity is im­por­tant. See and be seen, but rather than jos­tle egos, rec­og­nize the spirit light within one an­other. Let’s be care­ful what we feed with ei­ther pos­i­tive or neg­a­tive at­ten­tion — be­cause it will grow.

THURS­DAY, AUG. 4: Don’t just com­plain un­der this nervy Virgo moon. Laugh rather than be­rate one­self or oth­ers when lit­tle mis­takes are made. Pay at­ten­tion to the larger crit­i­cal voice — just make sure it’s ap­plied con­struc­tively and fairly.
