This week brings a shift in focus from theatrical Leo to fastidious Virgo. On Monday, the sun (planet of self) conjoins lively Mercury (planet of communication) in Leo, which can bring an inspirational moment. Something could click into place and we may feel we have the answers we need.

Tuesday brings the chance of a fresh start with a new moon in Leo, which can be helpful for kick-starting a creative project, romance, or new hobby. Lovely Venus (planet of love) aligns with energizing Uranus (planet of spontaneity), so an encounter could be a refreshing experience.

Chatty Mercury changes signs on Wednesday when it moves into Virgo, making this one of the better times to get organized. It’s a perfect opportunity to streamline routines.

Finally, the sun enters Virgo on Saturday for four weeks, which puts the attention on lifestyle matters such as work, wellness, and everyday tasks and chores. It could be a busier time than usual.
