The biggest highlight of the month for you, Leo, will be the eclipses, with lunar eclipse in Aquarius and your relationship zone early in the month, and a solar eclipse in your sign on the 22nd. This brings focus on both yourself and others, and the lunar eclipse helps you work on being more serious about your relationships and focusing on letting go of the unhealthy ones. The solar eclipse brings great energy for you to use to begin a new project, venture, journey, or idea that doesn't just occupy you for a short period of time. You're embarking on something much bigger, s go big. Don't be afraid to take a huge step. The energy is on your side. Venus helps, entering your sign late in the month, and it can be easier for you to focus on your own wants. The Sun is in your sign during the first half of August, and you can find it easier to make your desires a priority.
August does have one wrinkle in it with Mercury, the planet of the mind, turning retrograde midmonth in Virgo, and you can have difficulties focusing on the work that needs to be done during the second half of the month, or feel that all you do is work and you're not taking enough time to have fun. You need to work on balancing the two, and not getting stuck in one way or the other. Both work and play can be important.
Leo, Leo, Leo. You're admired far and wide - and oh-so-worthy of our admiration. The sign of Leo is ruled by the Sun - your sign is arguably the King (or Queen) of the zodiac. Your ruler is The Centre Of Our Universe - and unlike the rest of planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, etc), who sometimes appear to go backwards (ie: retrograde), your ruler the Sun just keeps ticking forwards, over and over. And you Leos are like that, too. With no time for the past, you are confident and even headstrong, happy to just keep moving, not holding grudges, not usually given looking back. Lucky you.
You CAN be intimidating - do you realise that? Your self-assurance knocks some of the meeker, milder signs off their feet. Try not to come across as though you are totally able to do without others - you can put on such a convincing act that the rest of us fall for it, and so are not there for you when you need us. Get it?
Leos are the pussy cats of the zodiac, for sure, but they're also the Lions and Lionesses. Depending on your mood, you can chew us up or smother us in warm loving licks that bowl us over. Anybody's who's ever loved a Leo knows that to love you is to be in awe of you.
So how do you do the things you do? With a constant vibrancy and passion enough to start a fire. Actors and actresses come under the sign of Leo and it's indeed true that your sign is connected with dramatics. You also like to be centre-stage, whether that's on a real stage or just with your pals. And why not? You always have something interesting to say and peoples. attention is naturally drawn to you. And you love it.
But you never just take, take, take. In fact, you are perhaps the most generous sign of the zodiac, giving your time and money and love to anyone you know needs it. (You give the best presents - by far). And when the going gets tough you have another celestial advantage - you can hold your head high and command respect in almost any situation. Sometimes haughty, always dignified, there's rarely any danger of you losing your cool.
But you're not cheap! Leos treat themselves as well as they treat others and you want the best of everything - meals and cars and bits and bobs all fit for a King, of course. You're also contagiously generous and although you can be fiery, you don't often let your temper get the better of you (except when confronted by true nong-heads, of course!) You like others to know their place and anyone who spends enough time around you, certainly learns it. Leo is also the sign of the celebrity. So even if you're not famous yet, use your innate Leo talents to shine like a star wherever you go and whatever you do. You know that you're just a little bit different and you like it just like that. Never ordinary, always distinctive, Leo leads.
