Leo (July 22nd to August 21st)
One of the consistent “secrets” of high performance studies, from Soviet Cold War era studies to Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, is that the more you embody, in mind and body, the performance you would like to see happen, the more likely it will occur. So science mostly confirms, “if you can dream it, you can achieve it.” There’s a lot of newness this week, between the new moon, Saturn going direct and a re-birth for Mercury as he retrogrades into the bosom of the Sun. But all this newness happens in places hidden from public scrutiny and that’s a good thing for you. You want to have time to practice and get comfortable with a debut out of the “den” you’ve been in for about month now. Perhaps now there’s a little more urgency to either jumpstart a languishing project or finish one that you’ve been nursing along.
