Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)
You could encounter a few people this week who have taken it upon themselves to dub themselves your personal lion tamer this week. As you and I both know, the project is utterly hopeless, but it might be instructive for you to know the stages of this, from a celestial point of view. Perhaps you’ll find it entertaining or can stop this foolishness from the jump. The first stage, with the moon in Taurus at the top of the week, presents you as a challenge for the lion tamer. The second stage happens around the middle of the week, as you seem languidly distracted by indulging in your own delights, whether at work or at home. So you seem easy to ensare and tame. (Smh) Then the final stage is when all delusions will end this week, either with a confrontation that leaves your would-be tamer confused & hurt, and you, picking your teeth.
