Your Cosmic Weather Horoscope for Sunday, July 22

Sunday 22nd July:

Here comes the Sun!

The Sun enters fiery Leo the Lion (and Lioness) – its radiant home sign today. The Sun in Leo is warm, loving, generous, creative and playful. The qualities of the Sun in astrology are magnified here in the Sun’s home sign.

Leo rules the fifth house of the natural zodiac – the house of children, creativity, speculation, and romance. Lurking in Leo’s shadows are bossiness, vanity, and brashness. But Leo rules the heart, and that’s what Sun in Leo asks us all to focus on.

‘Tonight the Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun 
Smiling, having fun 
Feeling like a number one’

From Abba’s ’Super Trouper’ lyrics (1980) by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus

Current planet patterns mean that the Sun is crackling with surprises, and the urge for freedom. Between 22nd and 25th July Uranus in early Taurus squares off with the Sun in Leo, symbolising sudden insights, unlikely infatuations, liberation, and brand-new circumstances.

By Friday, 27th July, there’s yet more electrifying energy as the Sun opposes Mars at the spectacular total lunar eclipse. It’s competitive, physical, and potentially aggressive.

So roll with the punches, and hold off on any binding decisions. What July and August’s events and news reveal could mean we need to make important adjustments, or feel free to change our minds more than once.
