This may be a last chance for some to get some travelling in (without disruptions) before Mercury Retrograde in Virgo, this August.

The Sun square Jupiter will occur first up this week on Monday, at 10am aest approx. Jupiter in Taurus has been allowing us to stand our ground in our values, but with Venus Retrograde in Leo challenging our inner deepest values and changing them for a more successful future, these are changing rapidly! The Sun in Leo square to Jupiter will ensure we are aware what is really standing in our way, internally and externally. Anxieties may come up, this may hurt our ego, but we are seeking the light, when within Leo Season - this cannot be ignored.
