Leo | Horoscope Expert


Jul 23 – Aug 22

The romance in your life will be greatly amplified today – and whether or not you have a romantic partner is irrelevant. People will want to be as close to you as you let them, so try to take advantage of the closeness. Barriers between you and someone you know in an official or professional capacity are coming down, and you will get a nice glimpse of this person's great big heart. Make sure you let him or her know that you noticed this generous act.

The boss is bothering you on Monday – not that there's anything wrong per se, but the energy is off and maybe you're a bit cranky. Tuesday and Wednesday, let your friends cheer you up: Sitting back and listening to your pals talk amongst each other is endlessly entertaining. Somehow these intellectual debates never become contentious – probably because, beneath it all, you love one another. Thursday is a group-hug kind of day (it would be hilarious if you could actually convince your friends to go for a group hug). This weekend has you beaming.

The sun, your ruler, squares passionate Mars on December 2, which can be a test of your patience and character. Other people want to see if they can get a reaction out of you. Don’t let them have the satisfaction, Leo.

There’s an equally challenging sun-Neptune square on the fifth, during which you might lose your motivation for doing certain things. Don’t give in to the underlying feeling that you’re not good enough, that you don’t know enough, that you aren’t attractive enough. There’s power in believing in yourself when no one else does.

Thankfully, Mercury comes out of retrograde on December 6 and moves into fun-loving Sagittarius on the twelfth. You know all those things you had a hard time expressing in the last month? It’s much easier to say what’s on your mind now!

A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on December 21 puts you in a happy frame of mind just in time to cross off the things on your holiday to-do list. Do you have time to put a good idea into effect before the new year? If not, write it down and save it for later. You can’t trust your memory during this busy time!
