Leo has a totally different attitude about love and life than a Cancer.

So we find folks born from the 18th to 21st of July this year sensitive and intuitive types because they are Cancers. Those born after July 22 are flashy and dramatic. They are Leos.

While the Cancers enjoy taking care of the family and celebrating home, the Leo born this week enjoys home and family, but they love drama more.

Leo wants to be the center of attention and demands the drama that goes with it. They like a complicated routine that creates plenty of drama. With a Leo, rarely is nothing going on.

Ruled by the sun, the Leo is a fixed sign. Fixed-sign people seldom change their minds and hearts about anything.

Life is just one big drama-packed game as far as most Leos are concerned.

People who were born this week: Elizabeth Gilbert, July 18, 1969; Anthony Edwards, July 19, 1962; Sally Ann Howes, July 20, 1930; Ernest Hemingway, July 21, 1899; Rose Kennedy, July 22,1890; Monica Lewinsky, July 23, 1973; Anna Paquin, July 24, 1982; and Matt Le Blanc, July 25, 1967.

Fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio, are facing some relationship excitement as Jupiter is now in Leo and Mars goes into Scorpio in just a week. Fire signs, Sagittarius and Aries, will have even more fun as Jupiter offers some real hot energy for good. So if you have been waiting for the big day, it is just around the corner.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you are prepared for some excitement and really want fascinating challenges in your life, then the time is now. Expect some new faces and smiles to brighten your days, plus a work opportunity from out of the blue. Stay awake or you could miss the events.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You may not like the movement that you could be faced with shortly. So try developing some flexibility as the week begins. If there is no flexibility, there will be drama. So take your pick; it is your choice – movement or stagnation.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) One happy thought faces you as Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good luck, makes a nice aspect to your sun. This offers you a juicy opportunity to get your work out there in the limelight. Not interested? Then stay undercover but think twice before missing your big chance.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Current circumstances may cause you some minor troubles but be aware, it is merely a fleeting experience. All will be well. Mars in Scorpio will make a great aspect to your sun starting next week. So it is time to make your personal dreams come true. All it takes is a little elbow grease.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) The planetary aspects heading your way promise big entertainment for you. That means you should prepare for the ultimate action that is coming your way. Make the social scene your campground and expect the excitement that is headed to you. A new pal could really warm your heart.

Virgo  (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) The changes you have made in the past month are going to pay off big for you. This is no time for you to be in the background both in relationships and at home. If you have done your homework, you are in line for advancement. Just keep smiling and know the prize is on its way.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) You are on the crest of the big wave, so keep moving forward. There is no sense looking back at any mistakes, you are headed in the right direction. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you made one or two changes recently, you are doing divine work.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) The way to go now is to stay positive and ignore the naysayers. You are in charge and have done well so far. Saturn in Scorpio is the big tester and you are passing the test. So keep your mind on your success and your heart in one piece. Your future is bright, if you stay focused.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Take advantage of Jupiter making one fantastic aspect to your sun sign. Whatever you have set out to do, get busy and push yourself for at least two weeks. You want to use all the good energy coming your way. A new face could brighten your life if you let it.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your life is moving in a new direction and as long as you understand that, it will be good. To make a bigger success of your financial future, you need more connections. That forces you to move out of your comfort zone. So any movement in that direction is a benefit to you.

Aquarius  (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) It would be a benefit to you to revamp your present routine and bring more discipline to your work. No more fooling around. It is a serious time and Mars in Scorpio will force the issue for you. A friend could be helpful in finding your true self, so ask for some favors.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) The creative energy of Neptune is hitting all water signs. You included, so get ready. The cosmic-packed aura of Pisces will be in full swing this week. So get out there where the action is happening and show your wares. It is time to take advantage of all that the heavens have to offer.
