Yes! August is here, it’s Leo season and it’s all about you right now. The week kicks off with a terrific Sun-Mercury conjunction on Sunday. A conjunction is when two or more planets line up perfectly in the heavens, which has the effect of fusing their energy together.
The Sun is all about your personal authority and personality. Mercury is the planet that likes to strategize like a five-star general. So Sunday is a great time to map out the adventures and successes that you’d like to have in the year ahead.
Just so you know, the Sun and Mercury oppose Saturn, which is retrograding through your house of serious relationships. It is your birthday season, Leo, but you can’t afford to ignore the needs of someone close. Just sayin’.
Spunky little Chiron is active on Monday and Wednesday. Chiron is a comet, and it likes to point out to us where we’re settling in life. What’s interesting is that Chiron is in Aries, which is your house of thinking big and busting out of ruts. So this isn’t too hard to figure out: on Monday and Wednesday, you should be doing a lot of thinking about where you’re playing it too safe. Also, you’ll come up with terrific ideas about how to push the envelope!
Tuesday is a “one door closes, another door opens” kind of a day when it comes to your career. For example, you may find out that you’re not getting a job that you interviewed for, but later on someone calls you from another company and asks you to come in to talk with them. Or you lose a big client, only to land a new one a few hours later.
On Friday a decision maker or system could challenge you. For instance, maybe you receive a letter in the mail from a government agency telling you that you didn’t file a particular document on time. Or a boss is critical in some way. Don’t get crazed about this, however. Next Wednesday Mercury enters Virgo, the stablest part of your chart, and things will clear up.
The weekend looks flirty and sexy as chatty Mercury winks at amorous Neptune. If you’re a single lion who is looking for love, a soulmate could be out there!« This Month’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
