«May my mind, that travel too far, which is the light of the lights, the only source of all wisdom, wandering in far-off places whether I sleep or awake, turn to what is noble» (Yajur-veda, 34.1)
For the next few years Uranus square may surprise Leo with unexpected events. If this already happens this month, your reaction would not be one of calm and acceptance. Venus makes you lazy and indulgent, so you are not inclined to face a change, while Mars is looming all over the month making you irritable and immediately reactive. The good news is that this month probably nothing will happen. Unless you are working for your health, taking advantage of your ideas, to change and direct your life towards what you want, which is actually what you should do right now.
Combine Mars and Jupiter energies and exploit this potential to enrich your life, Leo. It could be a good time for a trip. As the Vedas recite, the mind can travel either when awake or asleep, and it often travels too far. This is why we need yoga and meditative techniques: to bring the mind back here and now. However, when journeys are fully aware and designed for inner enrichment, then the mind not only expands its horizons, but also finds lightness and well-being. Whether you travel physically or not, Leo, direct your mind toward what is noble (beneficial to you!).
