Leo is extremely loyal, dignified and regal. It is a warm and loving fire sign and certainly it is a fixed sign.

Leo feels kingly and because of this feeling wants our respect. Without the necessary respect, Leo will find love someplace else.

Leo has great pride along with self-confidence. With this in mind, treating a Leo like a king or queen is always a good idea. In that way you can be sure you have a friend for life.

Leo is a fixed, fire sign. They love the drama of life. Because of the need for drama, Leo seldom deals with people in a cool and calm way. They are constantly seeing and dealing with life through impulse, emotions and then the drama.

Because Leo loves drama, you will find many film, TV and stage people celebrating their birthdays from mid-July to mid-August. Fine examples of Leo can be seen in the self-confidence of Madonna and the gusto of presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.


People who have or are celebrating birthdays this week: Sam Elliott, Aug. 9, 1944; Kylie Jenner, Aug. 10, 1997; Viola Davis, Aug. 11, 1965; Dominique Swain, Aug. 12, 1980; Danny Bonaduce, Aug. 13, 1959; Halle Berry, Aug. 14, 1968; Ben Affleck, Aug. 15, 1972; Madonna, Aug. 16, 1958.

Best days to sign contracts or make a promise would be Saturday, Aug. 10, with the moon in Libra or Thursday, Aug. 15, in late afternoon. The full moon falls on Aug. 20 so get new projects started by Thursday or put them off until next week. Mars remains in Cancer in wide opposition to Uranus this week. Remember to expect the unexpected.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) If there are stumbling blocks constantly getting in your way, try to ignore them and keep moving forward. The blocks are merely tests of your endurance and a reminder of your inner strength. As you move forward look for a new soul mate to cross your path. It could be an answer to your prayers.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Making a move should be a top priority to make your life better. Any frustration now is merely the result of your hesitation in making a move. As the pressure increases you will be happy to make some adjustments in your present plans. Remember adjustment is not defeat; it is wisdom.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) One of the new people you are meeting now could turn out to be the dream of your life. So be aware of any changes in your social circle. This is a week of high emotion for you and with that in mind it would be smart to go slowly. Try playing the game without following all of the rules.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The stress you may be feeling now is the result of trying to control too many situations in your life. Once you let go and enjoy your freedom, the tension will die down and you will see things from a different point of view. Leave the problems of others for them to solve. That is often a good move.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) This is a perfect time to reflect on the new status you would like to have both at home and at work. Since Uranus is making great aspects to your sun sign you can look forward to an outstanding adventure in the near future. Stay alert and consider asking a friend to share your future riches.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your love life is looking good and should continue. But try not to become so distracted or you’ll forget about your real love, which is work. Just slow down and beware that hasty decisions will not turn out as planned. The answer is enjoy, but make no long-term promises.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) If you are following the story of the famous Libra, Simon Cowell, you can understand just how quickly your life can change. With that idea in mind be cautious at every bend of the road. You too can be blindsided by a lover or pal. The answer might be to just say no this week.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) This is not the time to let your imagination take over your life. This week serious and responsible thinking should be on the agenda and you will see finances improve and investments grow. The moves you made several months ago are starting to pay off, so don’t stop or let your new style change again.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Continue your detached attitude on the subjects that used to get you emotional and you will love the payoff. Your attitude of letting life flow properly without trying to control it has started to make you feel more comfortable. Adopting a hands-off attitude is doing you good.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) A new look in your appearance will bring happy returns. Plus finances will improve when you develop a personal money game. It is time to avoid jumping from one crisis to another and bring your business attitude to your own life and responsibilities. Your life rules are changing.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Keep in touch with your longtime pals because they could really use your positive outlook on life. Now that you are in a new cycle, you might consider starting some unique teaching programs. An old love is thinking of you and wishing you were still together. Think about making a call.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Your spiritual life will start meaning more to you very soon. With that in mind it might be smart to find a group of serious-minded people who think like you. Try a yoga class or a meditation group where you feel comfortable. No comfort? Then move on until you find your place in the stars.
