Jul 23 – Aug 22

Your self-esteem could be a tricky thing to negotiate right now. As you build it, you could have a hard time balancing a healthy sense of pride with an appropriate level of humility. Patting yourself on the back is definitely a healthy thing to do, but be careful that you don't ignore the contributions of other people. You climbed a major mountain, yes. But you did not scale it alone. Gratitude for services rendered is a necessary ingredient for healthy self-esteem.

While the confident sun moves through your sign from July 22 to August 23, you’ll get a burst of energy that you can put toward hitting your most ambitious personal goals. There’s so much you feel ready to accomplish that the greatest danger is in potentially spreading yourself too thin, so make sure to prioritize.

And from July 27 to August 21, romantic Venus moves through your sign, as well, boosting your appetite for connecting with someone you care about. You’ll absolutely radiate from the inside out and find yourself daydreaming about treating yourself to anything from a spa treatment to a luxurious day trip. Go for it! Prioritizing activities you love, especially with your nearest and dearest, can make for sweet memories and bolstered bonds.

There are some serious fireworks when powerful Mars enters your feisty sign on July 1. With its rep as one of the most exciting planetary combos, you have a lot to look forward to in the weeks ahead!

Communications-expert Mercury is in your outgoing sign when it retrogrades on the seventh, but talking louder won’t help you get your point across. Put aside your trademark outgoing personality, slow down, and use some tact to smooth over communication glitches.

A Mars-Uranus square on July 11 could create stressful (and even dangerous) energy if you let your guard down long enough. Don’t take your eye off the road even for a minute, Leo. There are forces beyond your control trying to create problems for you, so stay aware.

You can breathe a sigh of relief when the sun enters your dramatic sign on the twenty-second and things start to go your way. You’re the star of this show, and everyone else is just part of the supporting cast!

The new moon on July 31 also appears in your creative sign, giving you the green light for all your artistic endeavors. You know all those people who didn’t believe in you before? You finally get to say, “I told you so!” It’s okay to brag when you’re this good.
