Leo [July 22nd to Aug 21st]
#MeTime: The week jumps off with the moon and Jupiter high-fivin’ each other non-stop at your table of the Zodiac Lounge. All that fanfare lets me know that you’re about to get some props, but you gotta be careful about taking the joke too far. Let the praise and your successes validate the value you give to others, but don’t confuse the praise with validating you. Otherwise, you either start living too hard for the praise rather than giving praise to what or who it’s due.
#Heartstrings: You have an opportunity for real intimacy, but I can’t promise that it’ll be comfortable. The sufi/spiritual poet Rumi has a quote about this, “God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches you by means of opposites, so that you will have two wings to fly – not one.” You might swing from mood to mood as you face getting closer to someone or wanting to get closer to someone. Don’t give up when it seems like it’s too much, too hard to be vulnerable. You won’t end up with “egg all over your face.” You will soar, whether it works out the way you expected or not.
#MoneyMoves: Among my favorite moments in the film Basquiat is the crown that floats above the artist’s head toward the opening. The crown is both a symbol of redemption and beauty for Basquiat for the pain and grief his mother experiences. In the film and throughout his art work, the crowns have an aura of majesty and destiny for his artistic career. This week, Leo, be prepared to feel a touch of destiny and redemption of your own. It doesn’t have to be as literal as a crown appearing over your head. You can expect sample of good fortune or a kind of cosmic smile that you’re doing the work you’re here to do. If you’re not doing the work you feel connected to as your joy, just your job, then this is a good time to dip your metaphorical big toe in some kind of water to see how your true work might feel.
