Astrology of Thursday, July 20th

Daily Astro-Weather

Mars finally fights his way out of Cancer’s shell today and finds himself at the lion-guarded entrance to the Sun’s golden palace. In Leo, the martial energies support the cultivation of core strength. Mars in Leo possesses the steel spine of the wrestler, though he may lack the sophistication or technique demonstrated by Mars in other signs. Raw strength of body, personality and will are the attributes of Mars in Leo. He is Heracles, the hero draped in the invincible skin of the lion he choked out with his bare hands. The Leonine Mars is persuasive and potentially overpowering. Yet Mars in Leo also inflames the ego, making people vain and desirous of unearned praise. Mars will be in Leo until September 5th.

Meanwhile, the Sun in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, which may lead to some odd revelations, sudden insights, or spontaneous moments of rebellion. The Moon makes a mid-day opposition with Saturn, which slows things down and may depress energy levels. Fortunately, during the afternoon the Moon sextiles Mercury, which should get the mind moving again, but toward what? Mercury conjoins Rahu, the North Node in Leo today, pulling the thoughts toward matters of leadership, performance and identity. There is an issue here which Mercury gets an early look at, but will not be fully visible until August’s total solar eclipse. With Mars’ ingress into Leo and Mercury’s conjunction with the North Node, there is much about Thursday which speaks of the future.
