This is a huge week – literally – as gas giant Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries on July 28th until October 28th at the Leo New Moon. As the Sun/Moon make a stunning link to Jupiter, there is power and potential in this fiery astrology for a personal re-set or fresh start wherever Aries and Leo are in your chart.
If you’ve been consistently underestimating or undervaluing yourself and your worth, do something practical to change that. Showcase your creativity in whatever form it takes. With the New Moon conjunct Ceres, make self-nurturance a priority.
The revolution is well and truly with us – for the first time since 1885, the Great Awakener Uranus and the karmic North Node of Fate and Destiny are conjunct at 18 Taurus. The conjunction is exact on 31 July and will be fired up by incendiary Mars on August 1st – a triple whammy which hasn’t happened since 324BC!
Things will really kick off but as Lord of Karma Saturn in Aquarius forms an ongoing clashing T-Square with this volatile conjunction, there are going to be no quick fixes, no escape hatches. Mars will be conjunct Uranus and the North Node by degree from 22 July to 15 August, while Uranus stays within a few degrees of the North Node for the rest of the year and into February 2023.
Every single one of us is being forced by outer global and local political, economic and climate circumstances to change the habits of a lifetime, our lifestyles and what we have come to consider as our essential entitlements.

“Keeping up with things can be an all-consuming matter, because everything changes all the time. There are always fresh angles to master. And when you are coming from a very old place, it is not so easy to shake yourself loose and become the next thing asked. To do it you may have to turn yourself into a super-high-powered accomplisher, converting ancient ways to radically different eras. The karmic performer in overdrive, hustling to catch up. At times compelled to rely on tricks. Frantic to cover all bases, to be everywhere. Pushing yourself to learn how to operate within a contemporary world that is alien. Something bright abides and sustains you beautifully.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
This is a week full of opportunity and potential but to seize it, you need to take action on your own behalf. Jupiter in your sign turns retrograde on Thursday July 28th at the New Moon in fellow Fire sign Leo in your angle of creativity and self-expression. Let your inner child out to play and surprise yourself with what your imagination comes up with. On July 31st when Awakener Uranus meets the Node of Fate in your money zone, come up with some really innovative ways to raise money as you could encounter a sudden change in your financial situation.
Romance, fun and enjoying life for its own sake are all well starred.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
With Sun, Mercury and a bright New Moon in Leo, your home and your family become extra important. Make a note of July 28th to have an important conversation with those who matter. As a solar Taurean, the rare meeting between unpredictable Uranus and the karmic Node of Fate in your own sign on July 31st is a game changer, knocking you out of your usual routines and putting you on track for a series of radical life changes in the next 18 months. It could feel quite volatile as you experience an irresistible urge for more freedom and the need not to be answerable to anyone but yourself. Saturn in Aquarius at the pinnacle of your chart is increasing your natural authority, but tread carefully where other people’s feelings are concerned.
Breaking free of your own outdated rules.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
Get out and about as much as you can or if that’s not possible, connect with friends and groups via zoom. With your own planet Mercury plus a stunning New Moon in Leo on Thursday 28th in your 3rd House of networks, you are craving more social contact and input. Also on July 28th, Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries until October and it’s time to divest yourself of some friendship obligations that no longer interest you. On July 31st, a rare encounter between Awakener Uranus and the Node of Fate in your deep 12th House could trigger some big dreams, memories and reflections. Make sure you capture them before they escape.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
On the 23rd, the Sun left your sign for another year, moving into Leo, your angle of income and resources. A stunning New Moon on July 28th makes a conjunction with Ceres, turning your attention to how you can thrive financially, emotionally and physically in coming months. As the nurturer of the 12 signs, you naturally look out for others. Now it’s time to do the same for yourself, finding practical new ways to improve your health and personal foundations. As Jupiter turns backwards at the New Moon until late October at the pinnacle of your chart, start saying yes to opportunities to make your resource base more secure.
Putting your personal needs at the top of your priorities.
Leo Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
As the Sun returns to Leo, this is your time to shine! Make sure you celebrate your personal New Year on Thursday July 28th at your annual New Moon, whether or not it’s your birthday. There is more fire in the heavens than usual at the moment as the Sun aligns with Jupiter in Aries and a rare meeting between volatile Mars, un-predictable Uranus and the karmic Node of Fate takes place at the top of your chart. If you crave more visibility, recognition or even fame, now’s your chance to take centre stage. But be careful what you wish for-remember Icarus whose wings melted when he flew too close to the Sun? That includes pausing to think before posting on social media as you could go viral for all the wrong reasons.
On the 31st, start a year of re-invention and see where it leads.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
With your own planet Mercury plus the Sun, Ceres and a stunning New Moon all now in Leo, make a note of the days between July 28th – 31st. Your deep 12th House of ancestry, memories and the unconscious is ripe for exploration. Keep a journal next to where you sleep and capture those big dreams before they disappear into the ethers. As Jupiter in your 8th House of secrets and heart’s desires turns backwards, open your mind to broadening your horizons. Travel-physical, mental or spiritual – is the path to expansion. Be alert for a sudden change in circumstances around the 31st when Mars, Uranus and the karmic Node of Fate meet in fellow earth sign Taurus for the first time in centuries.
A wake- up call.
Libra Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
The last week of July is the most intense of the month, so wake up and smell the coffee. Thursday’s stunning New Moon in Leo lights a fire under your social life. No more standing on the sidelines-just say yes to interesting invitations that come your way. At the same time, you need to clear a path for new friendships by leaving some old alliances behind. If you’re staying in a group or network out of obligation, say goodbye and move on. Also on the 28th, Jupiter turns backwards until October bringing a moment of theatre or drama to one particular relationship. Around the 31st, watch for some unexpected changes to your long-term financial status and be ready to seize the moment and take the path less travelled.
What if life has bigger ideas for you than you do?
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
The already intense energy turns even fierier as we enter Leo’s month with a stunning new Moon on Thursday 28th. It kick-starts an entire new chapter in your career, direction and reputation, so, if you are ambitious to be much more visible and better rewarded, make sure you seize your moment in the spotlight. Just be careful not to cut corners and get your wings singed. Hubris is never far from success. There’s more…your own planet Mars is meeting volatile Uranus and the Node of Fate for the first time in centuries in Taurus, your angle of one-to-one partnerships. Expect the unexpected and be ready to take the road less travelled if the opportunity presents itself.
A meaningful encounter.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
Expect fireworks this week and you won’t be disappointed. You are in your absolute element now as the Sun lights up fellow Fire sign Leo with a stunning New Moon on Thursday 28th. On the same day, your personal planet gift bringer Jupiter turns backwards until October giving your creativity a huge boost. Just make sure you capture those light bulb moments before they escape. Anything connected with publishing, media, foreign travel, research or study is exceptionally well starred and your gateway to new ventures in the coming months. Juggle that with what is kicking off at work around July 31st. Someone could throw you a curveball. Take it and run with it. If you have a project or campaign to launch, do it with bells and whistles.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
The potential this week is off the scales. As expansionist Jupiter slows to turn backwards at the roots of your chart until October, home is on your mind. How might you strengthen your family bonds, deepen your sense of belonging and build your personal security? Think in terms of legacy-what do you want your contribution to be? Take a long look at your finances at the New Moon in Leo on July 28th. Are you investing in what matters or wasting your hard – earned resources on the superficial and ephemeral? From July 31st through August, your creativity will be on fire. Now’s the moment to launch that book, podcast or blog.
Expect the totally unexpected and grab every opportunity to say a big Yes to life.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
This is a big week, so hold on tight for the ride. A stunning New Moon in your opposite sign of fiery Leo on July 28th illuminates your one-to-one relationships and starts a new cycle of belonging. Think about your closest bonds and how they’ve shaped and enhanced your life. Then reflect on your part in all of this. Are you meeting them halfway or holding back? Are you showing them how much you appreciate them or taking them for granted? Are you ready to listen to their ideas or insisting on your own way or the highway? From July 31st, changes at home and in your tribe will gather momentum. Move with them and your world will expand. Resist them and life will grow colder.
Appreciating the ties that bind.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: July 24-31, 2022
As the planetary energy becomes even fierier, you may be feeling out of sorts and way out of your element. On Thursday 28th, the stunning New Moon in Leo has the medicine you need as it lights up your 6th House of wellbeing and health. If your stress levels are high, take some time out to start a new regime of self-care. Not by setting punishing targets but by treating your mind, body and emotions with kindness. This is all the more important as Mars makes a rare explosive conjunction with volatile Uranus and the Node of Fate at the beginning of August in your 3rd House of connections. Tread very carefully, watch what you say and tiptoe around family landmines.
Monetise those off- the- wall ideas before someone else does.
