With Mars in the sign of Leo throughout August, your sixth house of daily work gets a boost. Your reputation is growing and you’re not shy about promoting yourself. If you feel like you deserve a higher status or a raise in pay, it’s time for a little recognition. Do this before the 12th when Mercury will turn retrograde in the sign of Virgo. You may not get a response for a few weeks, but that’s just Mercury in reverse. After it goes forward again on September 5, you’ll get a positive response as long as your work warrants it. However, if you are self-employed, it may be time to raise your rates. Also, the New Moon solar eclipse in Leo on the 21st will bring long-needed change and professional recognition—a promotion or an assistant. Anything’s possible during an eclipse.
