This August has it all — a solar eclipse, and Mercury and Mars are both retrograde until the 18th and 27th, respectively. As with all retrogrades, this is a chance to reflect, review and reassess. This month the challenge is to make sure that the people and things that you believe in and most cherish are reflected as priorities in your day-to-day actions. Take pains to carefully examine any opportunity that comes your way before the 27th, or you may find yourself involved in projects that go nowhere, or worse, that distract you from your purpose. It’s time to thoughtfully lead your life forward — even if that requires you to make revisions.
July 23-Aug. 22
The solar eclipse in your sign on the 11th is a powerful shift in energy for you, Leo. This charged-up new moon brings with it the push you need to make inspired changes. Start something new, seek insights, and put yourself out there to try to create what you want in your life or in the world. You’re ready, but feels are not equal to action; to make the most of this energy you need to get up and put yourself out there. August is the time to make it happen, my love.
