Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

On Sunday, there’s a rare event that happens only every 32 years I’ve found: the Sun, Venus and Mars conjoin in Aries. This feels like the culmination point of a 2-week journey for you to understand your relationship to desire itself and what you actually desire.  Leos are known to want what they want when they want it, and whether they’re going to have it or not is more of a formality.  You’re challenged now to deal with a little more. Desire isn’t always about what’s out there to have as much as it's about your ability to hold it. If a baby sees you holding an iPad, for example, she might want to hold it too. But she’s got to grow bigger hands, better eyes and have more brainpower to use it. Desire has to be matched with capacity.  So this week you lay the groundwork for greater capacity building.
