Weekly Astrology Forecast: July 26 - August 1, 2021

Posted on July 25, 2021

Two figures gaze upwards into the starry night sky.

Are you looking for fun yet clear communication with a side of practical motivation? Then this is your week because the stars are bringing two magical transits your way this week that will help clear up communication while giving your sense of ambition a boost!

And while this may seem like a slow astrological week, these two particular transitions have a great deal of energy to bring your way, so buckle up!

It all starts on July 27th, when Mercury, the planet of communication and the sharing of information, moves into spicy, fiery Leo.

That’s right, Leo season is almost here, and it begins with this warm and friendly transit. When Mercury is in the sign of Leo, you feel a heightened sense of confidence regarding your thinking, ideas, and conversations, making it easier for you to put yourself out there both mentally and verbally.

Then, on August 29th, Mars – the planet of ambition and drive, moves into pragmatic, earthy Virgo. This transit amplifies your ability to focus on hard work and tasks that will further move you towards your goals and dreams. You’ll feel a greater sense of satisfaction after completing an important job or task than ever before, making it easier to get things done. And the more work you complete during this time, the closer you’ll get to the finish line.

These two transits come together to create the perfect energy for moving closer to your ultimate goals and dreams. You’ll not only be able to confidently share your thoughts and ideas with others, but you’ll also feel more motivated to take action than you have been for a long time.

July 26 – August 1 is a Week to Speak Up, Stand Out, & Get Things Done

Mercury in Leo lights a fire within and encourages you to speak up when you have a great idea, to stand out from the crowd. It’s time to let your inner light shine on the world.

On the other hand, Mars in Virgo asks that you follow your sense of ambition and drive, tackling any tasks that you feel motivated and determined to tackle.

This week challenges you to put yourself out there and let your sense of motivation and willingness to bend to the task drive you. If you allow these astrological forces to guide you, there’s no limit to what you can share and accomplish.

If you’re not sure out to let yourself be heard and follow your motivated core, a personalized astrological reading can help you channel your inner king or queen.
