There is no more dramatic Astrological sign than Leo. They love the drama of living on the edge, the drama of chaos and, most of all, the drama of being the center of attention.

Leo is a golden fire sign, totally in love with the limelight. Bill Clinton, who was born on Aug. 19, 1946, and Madonna, born on Aug. 16, 1958, are perfect Leos.

Leo wants plenty of excitement and if there is none, they certainly know how to create it. They enjoy center stage and create experiences that will put them there.

Leo is a fixed sign so Leos don‘t really enjoy making change, but, when it is time, they know when to pack their bags and move on.

Leo is generous, outspoken and very conscious of what others think of them. Leo is fine with a non-confrontational pal or two. He will be there forever.

People born this week: Sally Ann Bowes, July 20, 1930; Ernest Hemingway, July 21, 1899; Rose Kennedy, July 22, 1890; Woody Harrelson, July 23, 1961; Jennifer Lopez, July 24, 1969; Matt Le Blanc, July 25, 1967; Helen Mirren, July 26, 1945; Alex Rodriguez, July 27, 1975.

Best day this week would be Monday, July 23, when the moon is in Libra. But just remember it is no time to start anything new or sign a contract. Mercury is now retrograde so wait until Aug. 8. In the meantime there is a challenge in the skies as Mars in Libra joins Saturn and is opposite Uranus in Aries and square Pluto in Capricorn. This can be a deadly combination if ignored. So once again the skies are not offering much of a cool, calm vibe this week and that means there is plenty of energy available.

The answer is to use it only for positive.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) There is plenty of activity in the skies hitting Aries people so watch your step this week. Could bring a new love interest, but you never know how long it will last. Might be cool to have a good time, but don’t plan on it lasting a long time. Watch out for arguments or you will find yourself in the middle of one.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Although life may have slowed down, if you stay focused there is every opportunity for spiritual growth to head your way. A new friend could be the answer to many of the questions that are on your mind. Try reaching out if you need any kind of help. It will pay off twofold.

Extra! Extra! Newsies Comes to Town

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Many times just before life really blossoms it may appear there is no answer. But be aware your life is moving ahead and you will be pleased with the results. Jupiter promises results as an answer to your hard work. Just wait until Mercury is direct early on Aug. 8. Expect some new opportunities in career and relationships.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) There is not a moon child alive who is not waiting for a new adventure, so you are no exception. Just don’t give in since life is about to change and move. Certainly don’t agree to any moves just yet because bigger and better opportunities are on the way. Patience is the answer and you are skilled at waiting.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) You fully understand the art of giving and as a result you are promised some new opportunities both at home and in your life’s work. Uranus in Aries promises to jump-start your personal ambitions and bring you into an entirely new lifestyle. Just hold off the final answer until mid-August. Your own payoff is heading your way.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Career changes are heading your way and if you are wise you just won’t finalize them until mid-August. Ending anything now will prove to be a mistake. So hold off and remember forgiveness is the final goal for all of us and you are certainly on that list. So look no further. Change is on its way. But if you rush it, you will regret it.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) If you haven’t had some awesome challenge recently then you are dancing with love and so busy you only see the positive – which is so good. So keep your spirits up because you are about to meet a person who will change your life for the better. So keep your eyes and heart open to the opportunities coming your way.

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Living with passion and purpose is now turning your life around and bringing you into the real meaning of having some fun. You are set to be introduced to a soul mate who will bring change and freedom into your life. Just don’t make it final until mid-August. You are learning more and more patience. This is a good thing for you.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) If you haven’t met a new BFF then get out more and give yourself a mid-August deadline. You are headed in a new direction and you want to go slowly, plus understand the need to stir things up. Instead of talking about what to do, your new slogan should be “just do it.” So start planning and set a mid-August starting time.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Defining your new direction is now on the top of your agenda. This is the time for totally letting go. You are aware there is a need to rejuvenate by making a few more necessary adjustments. The continued stress is offering you the necessary empowerment. So grab it and look for the success you certainly deserve. It’s on the way.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) The top thought in your life now should be how to really change your attitude. You think you have, but now is the time to show the proof. Stop ignoring the help and grab hold of it and move on. You are an openhearted soul but you need to harness it and use it even more. Then new people will enter your life as good friends.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) You are now moving forward in finding your true self and you should continue on your chosen path. Continue seeking your present goal and you will find the confidence you want. Remember we all must find ourselves within ourselves. You are well on your way to personal freedom. A friend is offering you some wisdom. Continue to use it.
