Leo | Horoscope Expert


Jul 23 – Aug 22

You want some fun and you'll go out on a limb to get it. As long as that doesn't entail overspending, let yourself go way out there. Don't be bothered by the petty concerns of those who wish you would play it safe. Use that kind of caution only when it comes to your finances.

On Monday you have to strike a balance between driving toward your own goals and helping others out with theirs (leaning too far one way or the other is not a good idea). Your ego is inflated this week in ways you never predicted. Tuesday and Wednesday, a clash with someone else, another big ego, might turn the office into a kind of soap opera. Is it possible that you need to let go of something? Thursday and Friday, do just that by ceding the floor to others, asking questions, listening. What you hear might not make sense now, but it will soon enough.

July 31 brought a lucky Leo new moon, and any big, bold changes get successful results in the 30 days following the phase (that would be now).

On August 7, your ruling sun trines generous Jupiter for fortunate returns from minimum efforts (that’s the cake). The icing is the trine between Venus and Jupiter the next day.

What do you want in a big way? Jupiter is asking after a direct turn on the eleventh. What did you want but fail to get? You have a second chance to get it as Uranus turns retrograde. And Mercury is smooth, as are you, in Leo.

Faster-moving inner planets enliven your sign of money and how you earn it. Virgo Mars leads the pack and is eager to get to work on August 17. Venus, joining Mars, is ready to help with your financial strides three days later. On the twenty-third, the Virgo sun simply brings money, no questions asked.

August 28 is a lucky day to search and send out resumes if you’re job hunting. Schedule interviews and meetings early in the day. Expect surprising and positive changes when energetic Mars trines Uranus.

The Virgo new moon on the thirtieth affects the 30 days that follow the phase. Next month, avoid getting in the middle of conflicts. They won’t help you reach goals.
