Leo (July 22nd to August 21st)
Freedom really does start with a whisper. I know it sounds like I’m about to break into some virtual version of “Hush, somebody’s calling my name,” but I’m not. I’m saying that freedom may break on the scene with something small, a dusty pleasure that you might have to rub hard to get sparkling again. But it will shine and perhaps light the path to more meaningful and broader pleasures. With Venus in your sector of the sky to inspire you toward delight and adventure for the next month or so, you certainly have to watch out for overdoing it, especially toward the weekend. So be wary of the impulse to go big this week or to set up large expectations for what comes next. Or get too self-indulgent about how you deserve so much more.
