There is nothing a Leo loves more than an audience and the drama to go with it. Leo is smart, refined and always willing and ready to play the competition game.

Leo is seldom shy. They enjoy being in charge and always like the noise of the crowd.

This fire sign is full of enthusiasm and charm. They like being in charge and feel their word is law. So, if you enjoy following the leader and tend to be a passive soul, you are a perfect partner for the outspoken fifth sign of the Zodiac.

Often when life becomes dull, when there is no drama and Leo gets bored, they will set up conflict just so they can take charge and enjoy the noise of a good, solid argument.


People who have or are celebrating birthdays this week: Mary Louise Parker, Aug. 2, 1964; Martin Sheen, Aug. 3, 1940; Barack Obama, Aug. 4, 1961; Loni Anderson, Aug. 5, 1946; Lucille Ball, Aug. 6, 1911; Charlize Theron, Aug. 7, 1975; Keith Carradine, Aug. 8, 1949; and Whitney Huston, Aug. 9, 1963.

New moon in Leo on Tuesday at 5:51 p.m. but hold off on new ventures because at the same time the moon goes Void of Course until Tuesday at 11:57 p.m. when it moves into Virgo. That means that new projects are best started on Thursday, Aug. 8. Actually, that will be the best day of the week for new adventures. Just be patient and life will treat you better.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) The time has arrived to start fresh. All you need now are some ideas to work out. This is the week to look for the new insights necessary to start your next project. Establish a strong base of operation and go from there. The stars are with you. All you need is a new BFF and inspiration.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you can pull everything together, you are headed for your shining moment. Your job this week is to get ready for the big move and the success which will follow. A new name in your  social network could offer some great schemes to you. So get ready for the big grab. Let go of the past and move on.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) It is time to challenge the preconceptions you had in the past and just take the big step and move on with your new found success. You are a talented worker and now it is time to rethink your latest project. The time for talk is over and it is now time to go forward.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) This could be an outstanding week to start a conversation with important people about your future. Even if you have no plan to act just yet, it is still smart to begin making some arrangements. Otherwise, you will be lost once your life starts to really get busy. With Uranus opposite your Sun, change is coming.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Look for a new relationship that could have a rare impact on your life. You are looking at a transporting experience that could bring outstanding success into your life. A new outlook – plus a new philosophy of life – will be the showcase that brings about the change. Don’t be taken by surprise. Prepare yourself.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) You have come a long way and now is no time to look back. Moving forward at home and work is the goal now. Expect some golden opportunities to come your way. Above all stay away from any kind of deception because it won’t pay off. It will only create future problems.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) The totally unexpected events taking place in your life could be traced to the fact that Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, is opposite your sun sign. You can assume it will continue and there could be some new BFF entering your social circle. Stay independent and let life happen now.

Summer Jobs: Working in the Sun

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) The wonder of controlling your own destiny should be making you happy this week. Just remember the work it took to get you in this position and continue to do the work to remain in charge. An investment of yours should start paying off well. So keep an eye on it. A good friend could need help.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The shift you are contemplating in your life is totally underway. Like it or not, you are on your way to a total change of pace which will include new places and faces. The big push will be underway and you and your new pals will love it. So keep up the big push.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) This is a week you should learn that wishing doesn’t make it so. You need to do the hard work. As you get busy with the work, know you will be pleased with the results. More power and money are on the agenda. There will be a change in the atmosphere at work as new people show up.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Your greatest learning experience now would be making some serious shifts in your thinking. This will bring you to more responsibility plus some new power. Your ultimate goal is learning to handle the changes coming your way. Know you will love it all and so will your pals.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Now that you have felt the thrill of the power of knowing who you really are, don’t let it go. The next step is being who you really are and saying what you really mean. A new relationship is just around the corner, so get ready for a really wild time within weeks.
