Leo is a fixed, fire sign that loves attention, so Leos cannot be ignored. If you think you can ignore a Leo, you have another thing coming. Leos need attention and are born knowing how to get it.
Leo has a magic – a drama about them that you simply can’t overlook or resist. A Leo enters a room and the mystical, magical energy just draws your interest and heads turn.
This fixed sign has great dignity that commands respect. No matter what the social status of a Leo may be, they still feel they should have your respect.
So if you are trying for a relationship with a Leo, one of the things you should remember would be to always show respect for them because without it, there will be no relationship.

There will be a full moon in Aquarius on Wednesday, Aug. 1. With that information you can expect this week to be high in emotional drama. So just watch because Mercury is also retro. Next Thursday will be the best day of the week. Not that it is a day of activity, but life will be less challenging and more enjoyable. Next new moon is on Aug. 17. So, if you have a big plan or are starting in a new direction, it might be wise to wait until the 17th. Otherwise know that if you are not careful, emotions could take over and there you are. So now is the time to slow down.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you let the planets rule this week, logic will fly out the window and emotions will take over. Once that happens you will be in another situation. So the word now should be slow down and smell the flowers. There is no urgency right now. So do happy things and have fun, it will be far better than making a move this week.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) This is a fine time to be motivated to finish up old business and be ready to make some swift moves by mid-August. You will be much happier and full of new ideas once you take care of some of those ignored responsibilities. A relationship also needs some tender loving care. Think about it and do the necessary work.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You will be happier if you jot down the ideas that are flooding your mind now and then act on them later in August. In that way you can avoid the disappointment you will face if you act too quickly. This is a good week to relax and let go of the nonsense that is holding you back from the ultimate success that will be yours.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Avoid putting any feelings in writing or text message otherwise it could come back to haunt you in the future. Your job this week should be to keep control of your emotions. If you maintain a positive attitude you will reap the rewards very shortly. This is no time to tell it like it is. Remain silent and happy.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Stay clear of any past obsessions and this will be a week to remember. If you get caught up in your past remember it will mess up your future. If you learned anything from your own history then you are in line for a fantastic time. Otherwise you will be repeating the same sad script. You decide just what it is you want.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Unless you have your feelings under tight control, you could lose it this month and find yourself in a negative space. So it might be wise to stay out of controversial situations and mind your own business. Then you will win the game and feel really proud of your newfound skills.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) A misunderstanding with a good pal could bring you to tears, but know that it will turn out just fine. Also keep yourself out of future situations by ignoring the negative comments some people make. A new relationship could develop into something much more serious if you let it happen.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Social involvement will bring you rewards this week that will please you. The more new folks you let into your life now, the better you will feel. Just don’t put a long-term label on anyone and there will be no disappointment. You need your freedom more than ever, so make sure you guard it. And you will have some help from Neptune when it comes to a BFF.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) If you just promise yourself to make some changes after Aug. 8 you will feel so much better. Also, since you are a fire sign and like plenty of action, now is no time to take it. So keep talking and wait two weeks. A new find will prove to be an important part of your future. So take it slow and let things happen.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) An unexpected meeting could prove to be beneficial to your future plans. So treat the meeting with grace and respect. Power and money is the name of the game and you are in line for a record-breaking time. Look for the silver lining in everything that happens now and you won’t be disappointed in the financial outcome.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) You are about to go in a new direction and that is good. Just hold off before you sign the final documents. As you head for the change take it in small steps and you will enjoy the adjustments you will make. Just don’t look back and it will work out just great.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Helping people is one of the main tasks facing a Pisces person. So if you are now involved in the helping or teaching profession, you are headed in the right direction. A new friend will help you with your goals and also become a serious friend. Don’t get caught up in gossip since it is not healthy for you.
