Mars Saturn opposition June 30th - August 18th
Mars just moves in a sign of Leo, which is a relief if you have been feeling lack of energy and lethargy to go after your goals. Planet of energy just entered a fiery sign of Leo, which means we will be feeling more energetic and enthusiastic about life.
However, Saturn is retrograde, aspecting this Mars, meaning some delays, obstacles, and needing to go back and do things again are in store as well.
Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius are under double aspects of Mars and Saturn and feeling the stress of this transit more than others. On the other hand, if you need to start or resolve some technical problems, you get extra boost in ability to do so right now. Take it easy and take a good care of your health though, you are under some strain.
The opposition will reach its maximum point on July 20th.
Venus joins Mars in Leo July 7th - August 7th
When these two planets join in a specific sign, we will be feeling extra passionate about the area of life. Read below where each sign will be feeling extra dose of desire to achieve. This is a prime time for Leo, since you are getting a boost of energy from multiple planets: Mars, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Rahu.

Don’t be surprised you need tell them over and over again.
Virgo - This could be financially challenging month for you, so plan accordingly. Keep you attention on long terms goals and bigger picture. You can achieve new depths in meditation this month.

Aquarius - Saturn went retrograde in your 1st house of physical body making you work extra hard. Watch out for negative self-talk and don’t be so mean to yourself. Partners and conflicts are taking a lot of your attention now.
Pisces - You are feeling competitive at work, which could lead to some conflicts or just obstacles to overcome. You might find yourself dealing with legal matters as well. Fuel the extra energy into you health and well being.
Venus will turn retrograde July 22 through September 5th.
Venus retrograde might find you reminiscing about past relationships, partners, and lovers. The common effect of this transit is a return of past relationships and desire to “try it again”. This effect is temporary though.
Venus and Saturn opposition throughout the month brings up repeating theme of responsibility and who owes who in a couple. Perhaps, it’s a good time to challenge and revisit gender programming in a relationship, as well as silent expectations you might be putting on the partner, without even being conscious of it.
