Leo wants attention.
They were born to be dramatic, to be noticed and to be loved. A Leo loves drama and many have what is known as a king or queen complex. This means they like to be treated with respect due royalty.
If you are not interested in letting the love of your life take the lead in a relationship, then find yourself someone else to love. Because it just won’t work, or if it works, it will involve some conflict. A great example of two Leos together would be the marriage of Sean Penn and Madonna. They are both born this week a day apart. That marriage didn’t last long and had its fair share of conflict.
If you bring too much drama into a relationship, you will also find a partnership with this fire sign a significant challenge. Why? The Leo likes to be in control.
People born this week: Antonio Banderas, Aug. 10, 1960; Hulk Hogan, Aug. 11, 1953; George Hamilton, Aug. 12, 1939; Alfred Hitchcock, Aug. 13, 1899; Mila Kunis, Aug. 14, 1983; Madonna, Aug. 16, 1958; Sean Penn, Aug. 17, 1960; and Robert De Niro, Aug. 17, 1943.
There will be two full moons this month and the second one on Aug. 31 is know as a blue moon. So prepare early for the emotions that will be created by this upcoming blue moon. A new moon falls on Friday, Aug. 17 when it is in Leo. Mercury will be direct now and life can get back to normal or at least we can make some moves without the retro conflict.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) This is the time for some action. With Mars transiting opposite your sun, you will feel a great urge to start something new and different. So take your ideas, review them and decide what it is you want to do. Once you have achieved your goal, move on just like Michael Phelps, an Aries, is doing with his 18 Olympic golds.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your love of the good life needs some adjustment and now is the time to make some changes. Look at what it is your heart wants to do. Then start making the contacts you need. You will find when you start slowly, you will have the necessary guidance and help to bring the success you are seeking.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) New horizons should be a top priority and the time has arrived to make it happen. Your ideas are glowing and with Jupiter in Gemini you would be smart to think really big. Avoid negative people and make the moves this week. Expansion of your creative life should be the name of the game.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If a career move has been your answer to the chaos in your life, then it might be smart to review your thinking. Be wise and know that changing the environment does not change the attitude. Sometimes we have to change the attitude and then change the environment. This is the week to think about it.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Your social life should improve now and with two full moons this month you can be sure there will be some drama to inspire you. The best time within the next week for you to be out and about would be on the weekend. So pull things together and find yourself a good time. Unless you stay home you can’t miss meeting some interesting folks.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Now is the time to give your relationships, both in your business and social life, plenty of attention. You are in line for more work and certainly a new love. Keep trying to meet your soul mate, but try to widen your circle of introductions. It will pay off two-fold by just expanding your interests.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) Here it is less than two months and Saturn will leave Libra after two-and-a-half years. You should start to relax and certainly have more fun within weeks. So look for happy people to be with and help you change your attitude. Life is starting to take on a new glow for you. Expect some new relationships to pop up shortly.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Anything you have been putting off you might want to get started soon. After all, Saturn enters Scorpio in early October and it is wise to be prepared. A new friend could suggest some fun this weekend and try and fit it into your lifestyle. You will really enjoy the experience. It is best to ignore the negative right now by thinking only positive thoughts.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) This is a busy time for you so take advantage of it and get plenty of postponed projects under way. A fellow fire sign could come into your life and really spice it up. So get out into the action and meet as many Leos and Aries as you can. Your life is about to change for the better. So get out and enjoy it.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) New ideas coming your way will add to your intellectual growth and offer new ways to help your career. So stay alert to all new business plans that come into your view. It will pay off in the long-run and make you a rich individual. Keep some of your plans private and share them with only your BFF.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) This is really not the best time to be taking a risk. It would be better to invest your time and energy only in matters that are totally tested by you or someone you trust. A new friendship may not turn out as planned, but it will be a great learning experience for you and your friends. The more responsibility you take for your actions the better you feel.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Any negative response to the events of this week won’t help you now or in the future. So try and think before you leap into anything that might look like a good idea today, but won’t down the road. Sometimes you have to say what you think and then you will feel so much better. It might be difficult at first but it is mature.
