Leo Career Horoscope: July 2013
Pump Your Brakes
July could get off to a rocky and raucous start with the Sun, your ruling "planet," slamming into tense angles with provocative Pluto on July 1 and electrifying Uranus on July 3. If you get entangled in a power struggle, are falsely accused of something you didn't do, are shocked by sudden changes or just feel extremely itchy and restless, do your best to avoid dramatizing the situation. There's no sense adding fuel to the fire unless you're ready to make a radical move. It's probably wiser, though, to take the time to carefully think about the best response before leaping into action.
July 8th's sensitive Cancer New Moon occurs in your 12th House of Privacy where you may feel like you're not in control of your situation. But brainy Mercury backs into the Sun on the following day, which is excellent for clarifying your thinking and discussing delicate issues. Being supportive of others, working behind the scenes and doing prep work and maintenance make sense until the Sun leaves your 12th house on July 22. It then strides into your creative sign to boost confidence, creativity and visibility. Still, it's best not to come on too strong as demonstrating your capacity to fill in the details on your big ideas is essential to gaining the respect and rewards you desire.
Even if you have been able to appear charming and charismatic while alluring Venus was in Leo until July 22, this money and resource planet shifts into skillful and practical Virgo then, rewarding you for backing up creative concepts with technical skill and efficiency.
