Road to Romance
July 29 – 31
Opportunities abound for starting a new romance or reviving interest in a current relationship this weekend. Things may start out slowly with the Moon in self-protective Cancer on Friday, which is better suited for low-key family events and a bit of rest and relaxation. Then there’s a dramatic shift of mood beginning very late on Friday night and kicking into high gear on Saturday.
The Sun and Moon join in the sign of the Lion, marking the New Moon in a dramatic fashion. This fiery lunation starts a fresh cycle that’s rich with energy, enthusiasm and extravagance. Some of us may go overboard in expressing ourselves, perhaps overwhelming shy individuals with the sheer force of our personalities. Proud and powerful Leo encourages us to be bold in our pursuit of love and happiness. The key to making magic happen is to avoid taking life too seriously.
When Leo is light and playful, it creates a delightful atmosphere in which everything feels like a game. We’re willing to open up and take risks with people who are fun, lively and straightforward. But when insecurity strikes and egos weaken, we tend to try too hard and might appear pompous or pretentious.
Generosity gets hearts beating faster during this demonstrative Leo lunar transit. When attention is put on making others happier, barriers drop and the road to romance opens. Whether it’s lending a helping hand without being asked, delivering a gift for no special reason or offering an unsolicited compliment, the more you give, the more you’ll receive in return.
