Leo is charming, dignified and full of drama.

A Leo walks into a room and they are always noticed. You can’t miss them. They dress in a unique and outstanding fashion, enjoy the drama life brings and are always on the lookout for a stage.

Leo, ruled by the sun, has a passion for living and loving. This fire sign tends to be loyal, and wants praise and respect from everyone who happens to cross his or her path.

Some people say Leo has a king or queen complex. And, unless you understand and respect this need, friends and family will never understand a Leo.

The Leo persona is magic and, because of their enthusiasm and their very nature of the dramatic, they are fun to be around as long as you remember their complex nature.

This fixed sign needs and appreciates attention and applause. Once they feel loved and cared for, you can be sure the relationship will be perfect. But let the attention cool down and there could be some problems.

Best days this week to get work started or completed would be Monday, July 29, in the afternoon or Friday, Aug. 2, with Monday the best day of all. The Golden Triangle involving Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces is still sending good vibes to us. Be smart and take advantage of the energy and get busy with an amazing project or relationship. The time is now.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) Try remaining wide-eyed and bushy-tailed now that Mercury is direct and life is getting back to normal. Bring out your new projects and start the work needed to get yourself and your life in tip-top shape. No more dancing to someone else’s music. You need a song of your own.

Extra! Extra! Newsies Comes to Town

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) As Saturn continues its journey opposite your sun sign you can expect a few challenges. But, if you continue to push forward and ignore the nonsense that others toss your way, life will be fine. A new love could come and go. Just enjoy the good fun and move on.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)  Now that Jupiter has moved out of Gemini, the work is bound to begin. So smile and keep working at making a change here and there in your life. An old friend might want to come back and try again. If you learned the lesson you will say “no.” Stay on your path and ignore the detour.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Some good times should be looking you right in the eye – and, if they aren’t, then you are on the wrong track. You need to move yourself and get in tune with your new life. Jupiter in Cancer is awesome. So grab some good luck and run. If you don’t, who will?

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Whatever you might be doing now is fine, but you need to review and revise. Otherwise you will miss some really good opportunities to make yourself known to the outside world. You need to try forcing yourself into the real world. A buddy could help you stay on the path. So ask him.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) All of the details may not be known, but don’t get caught up in the little stuff; stay involved with the big picture. It happens to be your job and where it goes from here. Spend some time pushing yourself. It will pay off.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) You could meet some new friends who could be an important part of your future experience. So stay alert and alive to all newcomers. Try staying away from issues of power since that could create some misunderstanding within your immediate circle of friends. That is something you don’t need.

Summer Jobs: Working in the Sun

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) You may feel frustrated by the amount of time involved in reaching your ultimate goal but keep smiling. Your future is in your hands and you will win the game. A new friend could be a great help with your upcoming job. So keep in touch and don’t let this one slip away from you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) This is no time to listen to what others have to say about your future. You are in charge and, if you are in love, so be it. A new vision of your life is now taking hold and you need to know it is what you want. Otherwise make some more changes and move on with your plans.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) You should be organizing your life as you see fit. Once you accomplish that goal, you will be happy and make more money. Pluto in Capricorn forces us to make some transformation and that is going on in your life now. A new way of dealing with money is good for you and others.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) There is a saying: Be careful what you wish for, you may get it. This week you have been wishing and you now don’t want it. So you are the one who must turn things around and redo your wish list. But first let go of the past wishes and move on. A new love is on the horizon.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) When making any changes you must gather together your wits and see what it is you really want to do with your relationships. Once you have that clear, make a move – but not before. The magic will stay around you for some time, so you certainly don’t need to rush anything.
