Four Planets, Mars, Mercury, Sun and Moon will be conjunct in Leo (Simha Rasi) from 17 August 2023.
They are in close proximity with Venus (Retrograde) in Cancer and under direct aspect of Saturn (retrograde) in Aquarius (Kumbha) and trine aspect of Jupiter + Rahu in Aries (Mesha Rasi).
Mars leaves Leo on 18 August at 11:55 IST and Moon leaves Leo on 19 August 2023 at 5:25 IST and but other 2 planets continue in same sign until mid September.
Mercury goes into Retrograde motion on 24 August and stays retro until 16 September. That is when Sun leaves its own sign Leo and enters Virgo (Kanya).
Next 5 weeks are not suitable for natives born with Ascendant or Moon in Simha Rasi.
Postpone all your major decisions for late september.
New Moon in Cancer on August 16th initiates a fresh start, especially in the realms of creativity, romance, and self-expression.
During this time, embracing our uniqueness and creative abilities is encouraged, as we allow our inner child to engage in playful activities like games, sports, hobbies, and romance.
However, the new moon square with Uranus hints at unexpected events and rebelliousness, which can influence our new beginnings.
Mercury goes retrograde in Leo, potentially causing communication and transportation hiccups. This retrograde period for Mercury takes place entirely in Leo and lasts until September 16th.
Do not start any new projects during a Retrograde Mercury !
Retrograde Mercury periods prompt us to revisit the past, finish projects already in the works, clean out clutter and old file. We may gain new insights and a more enlightened persective on past decisions and ideas, but there is also a risk of becoming overly analytical and critical. This is the time when we might return to past projects and refine or improve them.
