Leo | Horoscope Expert


Jul 23 – Aug 22

Sometimes you're envious of long-term couples. Well, sometimes they're jealous of you. Relish the freedom to do what you want when you want.

Warning: The start of the week may contain a romantic challenge. Rise to meet it by laying low. A wait-and-see approach works best. A friend wants to have their say about your love life between Tuesday and Thursday. Take time for a little chat. Their perspective will likely make a ton of sense. You're warm and cuddly on Friday and Saturday, and you might even want a little coddling. Set up some you-appreciation time with a partner or friends. Sunday's the most romantic day all week, and there's more to come. Plan accordingly!

A sun-Uranus trine in earth signs on September 2 gets your month off to a positive and productive start. Love doesn’t always come easily, but sometimes the things that you work the hardest for are the most valuable. Don’t hesitate to put effort into making improvements that will enrich your love life, Leo.

Messenger Mercury moves out of factual Virgo and into flowery Libra on the fifth, so the next couple weeks are an excellent time to play with the language of love. Writing poetry or reciting lyrics for a current or potential lover earns you points, as does sending sexy texts at interesting moments. Thinking outside the box is what sets you apart from your romantic competition.

Love guru Venus enters your outgoing, charismatic sign on September 6, so you should be able to use your charm to get what you want. You aren’t afraid to take risks now, but spontaneity doesn’t always work in your favor. If you’re going to insist on using the element of surprise, be prepared for some disappointing letdowns along the way.

When hardworking Saturn returns to its direct position in Capricorn on the twenty-eighth, it’s on. When it comes to love, being lazy won’t work anymore. You might have a long battle ahead, but it’s time to take the first step toward victory.
