Has your pride recently suffered a bit of a blow? The best way to build your ego back up is to get right back up on the saddle. Go back to the scene of the crime and try, try again. Win, this time. Did you get shot down after asking someone out? Ask someone else out, then—they are likely to say yes. If you're struggling with a new physical hobby, you have to keep at it. Practice, practice, practice. That is the only way to win or achieve any great goals in life.
LeoJul 23 – Aug 22
The spotlight shines on you in a warm and lovely way, making you feel radiant, charismatic, and especially attractive on August 14 when the confident sun pairs up with romantic Venus in your sign. You’ll want to get out of your comfort zone and enjoy quality bonding time with best friends and your lover—or, if you’re single, put yourself out there in a way that could lead to meeting someone special. The sweet sparks you’re enjoying at this moment will likely continue to burn and glow!
Then from August 18 to October 3, go-getter Mars moves through your second house of income, fueling your efforts to step up your side hustle or take on new clients or projects. As you launch your dream, you’ll have an extra burst of confidence, energy, and drive on your side.
When fortunate Jupiter turns direct on August 11, good luck helps take you where you want to go. You’re capable of plenty on your own, but why not take advantage of fate when it’s on your side?
Talkative Mercury enters your own creative sign on that day, and since it’s out of its retrograde stage, you should be able to have normal conversations and count on texts and e-mails getting to where they’re supposed to go. It’s nice to be able to rely on technology again!
The sun leaves your fiery sign for safer earth-sign Virgo on the twenty-third, so things will be less spontaneous and much better thought out. There can still be very special moments, but they won’t be a surprise, and that’s okay. There can be comfort and satisfaction in routine.
Your intuition increases during the sun-Uranus trine on August 29, so don’t ignore or dismiss those little inklings you’re having. When you get a certain feeling one way or the other, that’s the universe trying to tell you something. All the experiences you’ve had up until now have led to your current level of expertise. Trust that accumulated knowledge, Leo.
