Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

You're still in consolidation mode, but this week between eclipses allows you to let your mane down a little.  I know last week I left you with the image of you cutting people out of your life left and right, but that's not really how things will actually go down.  In fact, you may be surprised by how little you have to do to get pared down results.  What's happening in your life is more an act of alignment than a struggle or a stressful bout of slash & burn to get rid of dead weight.  You're just coming back more to center. Some of the hard work to make this happen has already been done. So, ease off being on your haunches. Give your attention to what gives you life and let whatever's not recede.
