Anyone celebrating a birthday after July 22 this year is a Leo. Anyone born on Friday, Saturday or Sunday is a Cancer Leo cusp.
Actually anyone born this week will feel the warm glow of the sun and a personality to match. They will have a dazzling Leo persona.
Leos thrive on the magic of an audience and the attention they receive. The passion of a Leo is to be noticed and appreciated. That is why you will find so many Leos on stage and screen. They enjoy the limelight like no other sign in the Zodiac.
This fixed sign seems determined to be a leader, to shine and to entertain. This is the lifeblood of a Leo; from the time they take their first breath they are destined to be a star.
Madonna, Bill Clinton, Jennifer Lopez are prime examples of Leos living their passion. They all love an audience and will perform at a moment’s notice. This is the destiny of a happy Leo.
People born this week: Lizzie Borden, July 19, 1860; Carlos Santana, July 20, 1947; Robin Williams, July 21, 1951; Willem Dafoe, July 22, 1955; Monica Lewinsky, July 23, 1973; Anna Paquin, July 24, 1982; Matt LeBlanc, July 25, 1967; Sandra Bullock, July 26, 1964.
Emotions will be running high and wide this weekend and won’t cool off until mid-week. The moon is full on Monday. Also be aware that Mercury goes direct on Saturday at 2:22 p.m. after more than three weeks retrograde. Life will start to cool off by Tuesday and make sense by Wednesday. So plan a simple agenda until mid-week and then start the action. If you can follow that routine your agenda will work better.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Focus your attention on your success schedule and get started by next week. It is a waste of time to start anything before, so save your time and certainly your energy. A new face could enter the picture and create some minor issues in your life. So keep your eyes on your ultimate goal.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Once you focus on your real needs, you will be very satisfied with the lifestyle that develops. With that fact in mind, it would be wise to undertake a new direction both at work and home. You will be happy you did and a long-ago soul mate could turn up in your life.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your latest life lesson is: Don’t announce your future plans before taking care of all details. That is putting the cart before the horse and it never pays off well. Wise planning is the sure way of avoiding disappointment. A new BFF could turn up and then become more than a friend. Make a plan.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If life hasn’t started to look better for you and your pals, you are doing something wrong. Check things out, make some corrections and then look for some real good luck. There is no reason – except lack of interest – for you not to reach your ultimate goal very soon. All you need do now is cooperate.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Look for some golden opportunities headed in your direction. Remember, if you get caught up in the usual drama you will miss the best part of the new venture. So let go of your past behavior and hook into a new and positive frame of mind. You will win and certainly make some new money.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) This is a week when business should win over any social pressures that might turn up in your life right now. So try turning some of your home responsibilities over to others so you can concentrate, at least this week, on your job. You will be paid well for making this decision.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Emotions could be running high this week because of the full moon, but if you are patient your plans will work out well. You will be amazed at the number of folks on your team as you move toward your goal. A new friend could turn out to be a soul mate. So hang in there.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) There may be some blocks involved with your ultimate goal, but ignore them and just keep moving toward what you want. Delay now is merely part of the Saturn in Scorpio experience. You are headed in the right direction even if there are some delays. One friend will be a great help now.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) It is a time of great challenge for you, but since you are in charge, you will succeed. Don’t let emotions cloud the issues you are now facing because you are capable of deciding what is best for your future. Have faith in your plans and move forward.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) As you move into a new version of your passion, be confident you will succeed. A friend could offer some sound advice but that does not mean you must take it. Follow your own schedule and do what you think is best. The money you want will start to flow once you settle down and believe.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) This may be an emotional time for your pals, but you should maintain your calm attitude. If you do that you will come out the winner. A new idea will produce exactly what you want. So once Mercury is direct, push your plans to the maximum. It will work to your benefit.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) There have been some Neptune challenges in your life recently, but you have handled them in a mature way. So you can expect even more good changes to come once Mercury is direct next week. You are headed into a more spiritual experience that will make you very happy.
