Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

One of the hardest words to translate from the English language is the word, “serendipity,” for happy accident or pleasant surprise.  I wonder why and perhaps this week you might wonder often too. I have a couple of theories. First, we don’t often consider accidents to be happy. If someone said she had an accident, you probably wouldn’t think it was something they wanted or would have wanted. Another reason is because we don’t leave as much room in our lives for accidents, in general. So make some room for some serendipity, Leo, especially toward the weekend. Thursday and Friday might be the toughest days to keep serendipitous efforts on track because of some minor work issues; but if you keep an open mind, an open schedule, and stray off routines a bit, you’re sure to have more pleasant surprises.
