You know that exciting feeling of wanting something so badly you would do anything to make it yours? There's no logic involved in this feeling, nor does it have to make sense. You simply feel hungry for success and that motivation seems as natural as breathing. In astrology, it's the planet Mars that instills you with such ambition, and when your commitment to a goal is so unwavering, you have Mars to thank. Luckily, you're on the brink of a very satisfying and creative time in astrology and your Mars in Leo 2019 career horoscope has all the details.
Mars will be in Leo from July 1 to August 18 and this is a perfect time to express yourself, own the person you are, amp up your level of confidence, and enjoy the ride. No matter the occasion, Leo wants to shine as bright as the sun, and this astrological transit is about putting yourself first. If you have self-doubt that normally prevents you from taking a risk or standing in the spotlight, now's the time to let it go, because Leo has too much passion to contain itself.
However, even though this can be an incredibly prolific time for your career pursuits, let's not forget Mercury will retrograde from July 7 to July 31 and a lunar eclipse will rattle the cosmos on July 16. As you probably already know, Mercury retrograde can decrease your energy levels, disorganize your business, and confuse communications. To make matters even more complicated, a lunar eclipse has the power to shift the trajectory of your career completely, if the universe deems it necessary. With all that being said, Mars in Leo will be a time of creative reflection and passionate exploration. Look inside yourself and find Leo's light of self-love. It can help you overcome anything.
