Things are about to get a whole lot hotter this summer as both Venus and Mercury enter fire sign Leo in the near future.
Love, money, and relationship planet Venus enters creative and heart-centred Leo on July 11 (10:34 p.m. PDT) for a transit that lasts until August 5.
Communication and intelligence planet Mercury follows hot on Venus' heels, entering the colourful leonine sign on July 13 (5:47 p.m.) for a transit that lasts until July 30.
Venus and Mercury will come together in a passionate embrace (erm, conjunction) at 5 degrees Leo on July 16 (2:59 p.m.), indicating a point when our hearts and minds are one.
Love is on our minds - whom we love, what we love, how we can create more love in this world - and we are communicating straight from the heart at this time. This Venus-Mercury mash-up puts hearts in motion. We are willing to travel to the people and places we love most, and we are willing to express ourselves in creative, romantic, and heartfelt ways.
We may be a little bashful about sharing what's in our hearts, about putting it on display or putting it in someone's ears, but now is the time to draw on the courage of the lion and share the beauty and bounty of our heart-deep feelings and creations. They're about to burst into bloom!
