Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

It helps that Memorial Day caps the week, because it’s an excellent time to be in a party groove, connect with others and gather intel and wisdom for what’s coming up next.  June will be a month for you to pull back some, so this penultimate week of May is a nice way to gather up some brain briquettes to simmer, so to speak. What’s happening, dear Lion, is that you’re about to do some soul primping (and perhaps even some physical) before your birthday season starts in July. You can think of this week as that party before you go into finals week when in school.  However, you’re not just partying to lose yourself. You’re partying, socializing and connecting to flex some newer confidence muscles and get a sense of where to focus your energy and intentions when you re-emerge.
