Leo | Horoscope Expert


Jul 23 – Aug 22

What's your gut feeling? Sure, listening to your head or following your heart are fine ways to go, but at the moment your instinct is a surer guide than your intellect or your emotions.

Your ability to learn – your openness to what other people have to say, the way you show you're listening – is very attractive. At the beginning of the week, you meet someone who has quite an effect on you. This is most likely not a romantic thing, but your chemistry is undeniable. Wednesday and Thursday aren't very romantic either, though they seem like they should be. But all your friends' egos are on overdrive, canceling each other out. Friday and Saturday your friends are more conducive to good times, and someone (or something) great comes your way Sunday.

Have you been lucky in love lately? You’ll really be feeling it when Jupiter goes direct on August 11. There’s a certain amount of satisfaction that comes from knowing you’re in charge of your own happiness, but a little luck never hurts either!

Chatty Mercury enters your outgoing sign on the eleventh, so you won’t have any trouble striking up conversations with cute strangers and co-workers you’re crushing on. If you’re already in a relationship, this is a great time to have a special talk with your partner. Getting what you want is easy when your charm is off the charts!

You might feel some of the excitement leave the air as the sun switches from your confident sign to Virgo’s more practical rule on August 23, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun. Get your responsibilities out of the way first, and then go ahead with your regularly scheduled romantic adventures!

Your intuition kicks into high gear during the sun-Uranus trine on the twenty-ninth, making romantic decisions slightly easier than usual. If you’re in a relationship, you can probably already sense where things are headed. Single Leos have a slightly more difficult time interpreting mixed feelings from someone new, but deep down you probably know if they’re a good match or not.
