7/23 - 8/22
Should you lay it all bare or remain a mystery? That is the dilemma this week, thanks to a schizo mashup of Mars and Neptune in Pisces and your seductive eighth house. With brash, bold Mars in the mix, subtlety may be lost on you; youll feel more like a pouncing lion than a purring one…especially when youre turned on (which will be often this week). But Neptune likes to play the cat-and-mouse games, making you wonder if maybe you should play hard to get instead of being so obvious. Can you blame people for being confused by you, Leo? Not really! Youre definitely guilty of sending out mixed signals this week, which can cause the object of your affections to freeze in his/her tracks. Plus, youll find yourself inexplicably drawn to the player types…daring Mars and shadowy Neptune love an air of danger. Fortunately, communication planet Mercury comes to the rescue on Tuesday the 5th, when it stations itself in Pisces until April 12. In this position, Mercury makes you savvy and strategic…not to mention intuitive. You may feel like you can read peoples minds this week, and youll definitely be aware of the charm you hold over them. Use your powers for good, Leo, as it would be all too easy to manipulate people to do your bidding. Theyll catch on eventually though and resent you for it–never a good thing. This could be an incredibly sexy week for you, Leo, so if youve got a good one on the line, hang the Do Not Disturb sign and enjoy some intimate bonding behind closed doors. Single Lions may be processing some intense emotions about your past romantic situations. Dont let the tidal wave of emotions overtake you. Keep a supportive friend (or three) on speed dial and talk things out and remind you that no, it would NOT be a good idea to run back to your toxic ex just because youre afraid of growing old alone. Financially, this planetary trifecta advises you to proceed on all deals with caution. Mars can make you impulsive while Neptune can conceal some important details. Lean into Mercurys just the facts maam approach and let sound judgment (not your emotions) inform when you reach into your bag for your wallet…and when you keep it tucked away. Happy news for your love life arrives on Sunday the 10th when the new moon in Aquarius energizes your seventh house of relationships. Valentines Day could start a little early for you, thanks to this new moon. A flirty connection could turn into a real deal romance near Sunday. If youve been dating someone for a while, talks could turn to when youll put a ring on it. Been together for ages? The desire to co-create and kick off a new phase in your union is activated by the new moon. Single Leos will feel revved up about the relationship game. Rather than entertaining the casual connections, youll feel the urge to play for keeps again. Remember that new moons are initiators of six-month cycles. Pace yourself. You have until the corresponding full moon on July 22 to work with this lunar magic. Business partnerships and creative collaborations will also benefit from this new moon. Its time to make your unions more official, maybe even inking a contract to signify this!
