If Your Birthday is July 23
(The Day of Uncertainty Resolvers) | Birthday Readings: Cancer | Leo | Others
Today’s New Moon in your birth sign is an invitation to bigger and better things. You’re being invited to go beyond what you’ve ever accomplished, and the planets are saying you have the energy and the talent to do so. Just remember to think before you act. The main risk your charts are describing is being impulsive in ways that don’t serve your best interests.
Written in the Planets
The first of two Leo New Moons this year, preceding the Aug. 21 eclipse, makes this a pretty special time. As Amanda pointed out Thursday, today’s conjunction is an ideal moment to set your intentions, for the month ahead and perhaps far beyond; Mars close by will give that extra impetus. What world do you wish to foster, both within and without? What passion truly drives you? Where can you make a positive difference? Consider these questions today, and be prepared to reach at least partial answers. There may well be an ongoing process, but you have to start somewhere.
“Ah Eric — just listened to your reading. I was moved to tears by your closing words. Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville
“Thanks for reassuring this Leo, who is having a year ‘for the books’! You get to the core of things.”
— Barbara Peaslee, on a previous Leo reading
