Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)

You’re about a week from the Sun going into its “glory zone,” your zone.  You might attempt to kick off a little too much before it’s time. It’s true that Mercury stops retrograding this week. But it’s best to have a “dress rehearsal’ with things before jumping into the water, so to speak. You’re not quite ready, and don’t let your pride get the best of you.  In general, this is a time to dot your “i’s” and to cross your “t’s” And be careful of the impulse to be self-indulgent with treating yourself or drowning your anxieties in your favorite food or beverage.  You want to stay on point as much as you can. No immediate gratifications. You’re close to where you’ve been wanting to be for weeks, so don’t let panic or impatience get the best of you.
