(July 22–August 23)
Sun in Aries through April 18 is your annual period of spiritual renewal. The Sun sextile Mars, and Jupiter April 13–15 supports powerfully enhanced understandings of your own transcendent energy; but does this idealistic vision of yourself hold up under ego stressors when the Sun squares Pluto on April 16? Sun conjunct Mercury on April 18 creates combustible communications. Sun enters Venus-ruled Taurus April 19, followed by First Quarter Moon in Leo April 20. This turns up the heat in anticipation of the Sun/Uranus conjunction April 30, sparking originality. Genius loves company so prepare to win a plethora of popularity contests.
