Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)
With Jupiter going retrograde this Thursday, you’re going to be presented with the challenge of maintaining gratitude even as you may experience loss. No need to get stressed out about what you may lose, because the specifics I can’t see exactly for you.  I could be talking about any spectrum of things that you could lose—whether money, a ticket for your dry cleaning or something, someone much more precious. But what comes home is recognizing what you take for granted or don’t appreciate enough. This, of course, may summon fear and anxiety. Let’s be clear that you don’t do well with fear. I think mostly because it makes you look bad. You can’t be too at-tached to that now. You have to be willing to risk looking less than your best to em-brace the hearty and good stuff now.  Or risk losing more.
