Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

Let’s start with the weekend, because that’s just the thing we’re often thinking about at the top of the week anyway. This weekend is a particularly great time to appeal to your imagination or, at least, make room for a lot of non-sequiturs in where your mind goes. Or put differently, Leos, I’m giving you full permission not to have to make sense this weekend.  (Although I can already hear some of you saying, “Who asked you for your permission?”)  If you’re into poetry, it’s a good time to read some or hear some—anything to soften the bald bulb of how you talk or listen is a plus. And, to be clear, the top of the week ain’t that bad. It starts off with a new moon in a fire sign, so that’s good for both warming you up and getting you to feel a bit more like yourself.
