7/23 - 8/22
Pucker up! On Wednesday, the sun blazes into Sagittarius and your fifth house of romance, passion, glamour, and fame. For the next month, youll feel as if a mistletoe was perma-hovering over your lovely head. No, Leo, that smoldering model-off-duty lookalike with the chiseled jaw is not checking out the girl behind you. (Um, hes looking at YOU, Leo. Quick! Smile and make eye contact!) Your annual romantic renaissance is underway and the next thirty days promise to be drenched in lovin vibes. Although suitors may come out of the woodwork, you must also meet the universe halfway. Undo that prim secretarys bun and whip your hair. You need to signal interest, or at least assume a non-threatening posture (as in No, Im not going to reject you and eat you for dinner.) so that youre easy to approach. Fortunately, this shouldnt be hard for congenial, extroverted you. Youre quite the huntress yourself now. If you want to take the lead in the game of amore, the cosmos give you the thumbs up. Ready, aim, pursue! The Sagittarius sun also brings a bonus shot at fame and public recognition. Making a name for yourself always ranks high on the Leo goal sheet and this is your time to shine. So…you think you can dance, sing, paint, act, (insert creative talent here)? Do what it takes to slingshot ahead of the competition and leave your signature mark. A fierce competitor you are indeed, Leo, and while the auditioning process can be grueling, youll get valuable feedback (and grow exponentially) every time you put yourself out there before the proverbial panel of judges. Beyond the talent show circuit, you may be invited to comment as an expert on a panel or even on TV. Practice those on-camera poses in the mirror and prepare for your close-up. This is a fertile period for you Leo, a time thats ripe for giving birth to new ideas and possibly even hosting a bun in the oven. For coupled Leos, baby talk could sound less like cooing in a falsetto to your sweetie and more like discussing nursery configurations or imagining out loud the potential of your future-firstborn. Keep the glam fairy on speed dial. Putting together a look book of potential style upgrades will get you inspired to hit the Black Friday sales. Save any drastic changes–like chopping your Jennifer Lopez locks into a Michelle Williams pixie or inking a Sailor Jerry pin-up girl onto your armuntil Mercury turns direct and restores clear thinking on the 26th. The family friendly vibes kick in on Wednesday too, when harmonizer Venus moves into Scorpio and your fourth house of kin. Noble Leos have soft spots in your hearts for your pride (aka the people you share DNA with). This Thanksgiving will find you in a sentimental-verging-on-shamelessly-sappy frame of mind. After youve handwritten Im thankful notes and slipped them under everyones place setting, invite your somewhat-reluctant relatives to go around the table and say something appreciative about the person sitting to their right. There wont be a dry eye in the house by the time youre done with your little exercise. Can you feel the love tonight? Mm-hmm. With Venus in Scorpio until December 15, you could give domestic doyenne (and fellow Leo) Martha Stewart a run for more than just a few of her favorite things. Embrace your crafty spirit and delve into a DIY mission that doubles as stocking stuffers a month from now. The long weekend offers a chance to play amateur decorator and add some colorful touches to Chateau Leo. Then again, with the moon in Aries from Thursday night till late Saturday, you may be too busy, er, bonding with an old high school flame to be bothered with picking out paint swatches.
