High apple-pie-in-the-sky hopes

This week begins with high hopes and solid initiatives. We have a go-out-and-gettum Sagittarius Moon for Monday and Tuesday. If you have personal planets in fire signs (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) you're feeling optimistic and expansive, with flashes of inspiration. The same would hold true to a more cerebral degree for air signs (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius).

For earth signs (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) just hang on--you'll get lots of help digging out of emotional debris when Wednesday's Capricorn Moon turns full to the Cancer Sun at 1:40 PM PDT on Thursday. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) flow through the week comfortably in the Cancer Sun's luxury yacht, with Venus as first mate--one of her favorite roles! A perfect time for at-home social gatherings with gourmet treats.

Saturn, the hard-working realist, is taking Venus to AA meetings this week, hoping to sober up her romantic haze. Venus is finding this to be a rude awakening. She's noticed that her dashing Mars lover has a ring around his colar, a button missing in a strategic place, and a faint smell of unfamiliar perfume. Venus thought he had committed to be her dinner partner, but now Saturn has given Mars a chance for a coveted overseas assignment and he's packing. Could it be things are not as they seemed?

Talking it out, with the help of Mercury the messenger, could work. Mercury is ruling in big-hearted Leo until July 28th. The Leo self-confidence and strong will makes a firm and regal referee for romantic dramas. Mars has the patience now to wait with flowers on the doorstep, and Venus is cooking humble pie with her own two hands. There's hope. Sunday brings rest and a sweet dreamy Pisces Moon to add a spiritual touch. Love is Leo's answer, always, for anyone who'll listen.
