Leo [July 22nd to Aug 21st]
#MeTime: The week starts off with the Moon in your sign, so here’s one of those refueling stations as you recover from the years of Neptune in Aquarius creating a gentler, kinder you. As we go forward, Leo 2.0, we can expect more charm with your swag. Of course, with Mercury and Uranus, AKA Tricky and Real Genius, you also have to be ready not to take yourself so seriously. It’s almost pointless for me to tell you to do anything that would make you look foolish, so I won’t. But can I recommend you do more that would get you to laugh and feel young? Otherwise, Tricky Mercury is sure to trip you and your real genius Uranus will be sitting on the backburner.
#Heartstrings: Leos know how to keep things funky, whether they’re quiet or loud. Makes me think of something that Lenny Kravitz has said about funk: “If you listen to a lot of old funk records, the drums are really small. But you don’t perceive it like that because the groove is so heavy.” Go heavy on the groove and don’t think it’s about the loudness of your drum, roar or yell. The coming full moon and Mercury retrograde is gonna prompt some wonkiness, so keep loved ones in a groove by looking out for them. Of course, there’s always the hazard that they ain’t lookin’ out for you, but there’s a way to let someone know that without an ultimatum or a tantrum.
#MoneyMoves: Time for your annual full moon in your financial sign, Virgo. If you’ve been chasing after your money as I’ve been talking about with you for the last few weeks, now is the time to catch up and maybe pull ahead. If you haven’t booked your appointment to do your taxes or sit down with your financial planner, this might be a good time to do it. Beat the Mercury Retrograde and make sure you’re starting your spring on the good foot.
