Overview for this Month: Leo (All)

August 2014

After a rather extended period of uncertainty and some level of withdrawal, you are moving into a more confident, open, and personally powerful chapter of your life, dear Leo. Jupiter's recent move into your sign is certainly a positive one, but you'll be more aware of its benefits once Mars, the planet of action, moves into a harmonious position relative to your sign - in mid-September. For now, Mars is challenging you from your sector of home, family, and self-image. You're still in a powerful position in August, as you're beginning to really "own" your life and ready to take charge. You simply have to jump over some hurdles to get to this positive headspace at one hundred percent. You are energized to deal with any problems or stagnation in your domestic life. Family, and possibly your own struggles with self-image, can at times conflict with your personal plans, and this can be especially so on the 1-2, 8-9, and 25-27. The latter dates can bring a resolution. There is a lot of attention In love and relationships, you begin the month especially pensive and possibly uncertain. The Full Moon on the 10th brings an epiphany that helps you to know your own heart's desire, and brings more clarity after the emotions of the moment settle. The 12th begins Venus' yearly transit of your sign and more clarity, and the timing couldn't be better! Until September 5th, you are more confident about your ability to attract the right circumstances and people into your life, your affections and needs are much clearer, and others are truly "seeing" your attractiveness. This is a time for making peace with people and yourself, putting fears behind you, improving your image and appearance, and sharing your happiness with others. By mid-month, your focus begins to shift to practical affairs as you become aware of flaws in some of your recent plans, and from the 23-25, strong energy is with you for taking charge of business.

August 2014

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until August 23rd:

The Sun continues to move through your solar first house. You experience a renewal of energy and vitality now, and it's a strong time for increased personal confidence. The emphasis is on self-expression, what kind of impression you make on others, and beginning new personal projects. You are a little more self-centered than usual, and this is quite natural and healthy as long as you don't take it too far. You are more decisive and forward-looking now, and you put more faith in your own abilities. Physically, you are likely feeling strong. This is an excellent cycle for making personal changes in your manner or appearance, and for any self-improvement endeavors. Personal projects that you begin now are likely to blossom nine months down the road.

From August 23rd forward:

The Sun highlights your second house now, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until August 12th:

Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it's possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn't be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being. Doing some soul-searching as well as an enhanced ability to perceive other dimensions in love can lead you to a deeper understanding of your own love needs and possibly of a love relationship. Love might involve some form of sacrifice or simply a lot of giving and lending of support as opposed to receiving during this cycle.

From August 12th forward:

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until August 15th:

With Mercury in your solar first house, you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, light-hearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

From August 15th forward:

With Mercury in your solar second house, this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances during this period. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month:

Mars continues to activate your solar fourth house. More energy and enthusiasm is brought to your home life, but there can also be a tendency to stir up trouble if you are not careful to channel any excess energy into constructive and productive pursuits around the home. You desire to take the lead, but you should do so in a respectful way so as not to get anyone's goat.

Overview Horoscope:

After a rather extended period of uncertainty and some level of withdrawal, you are moving into a more confident, open, and personally powerful chapter of your life, dear Leo. Jupiter's recent move into your sign is certainly a positive one, but you'll be more aware of its benefits once Mars, the planet of action, moves into a harmonious position relative to your sign - in mid-September.

August 2014

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it's time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until August 12th:

Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it's possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn't be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being.

You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until August 5th:

Mercury continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This is a cycle in which clear decision-making does not come easily. You are paying more attention to unspoken or hidden elements of any circumstance. You are seeing all sides to any given story, and forming a definite opinion does not seem "right" for the time being. Thoughts turn to the past. It's a strong period for gaining different perspectives on problems or issues in your life, as well as for reflection and research, but not the easiest time for presenting your ideas.

From August 5-21:

With Mercury in your solar first house, you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity.

Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

From August 21st forward:

With Mercury in your solar second house, this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances during this period. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until August 13th:

Mars continues to activate and energize your solar third house now. You may be especially busy running errands and tending to daily activities during this cycle. It's a strong time for putting your energy into intellectual projects or studies. You tend to communicate in a more direct manner now, and you might want to be careful that you don't come across as insensitive or abrasive. You may find it too easy to become impatient with others if they seem to be taking up too much of your time, such as with other drivers or with people who are not speaking as directly as you are. Channel your extra energy into mental tasks so that this transit can be highly stimulating (instead of stressful).

From August 13th forward:

Mars activates and energizes your solar fourth house. You have more energy at your disposal for domestic projects or activities. Because your actions are governed by your instincts during this period, you may be especially defensive and protective. You may work hard at making yourself feel more secure, and you may be called upon to take charge on the home and family front. You may have more energy to invest in homemaking, house repairs, re-decorating, or family activities. In fact, if you are feeling very restless, moody, or defensive during this period, it would be a good idea to do any of these things! You may have an increased desire to rule the roost, and if this transit stimulates conflict or disputes, it is likely to be family-related--you may have arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf. You may also encounter opposition from career-related matters or people. You may get worked up about old angers or regarding emotional issues from the past that are resurfacing now.

Overview Horoscope:

After a rather extended period of uncertainty and some level of withdrawal, you are moving into a more confident, open, and personally powerful chapter of your life, dear Leo. Jupiter's recent move into your sign is certainly a positive one, but you'll be more aware of its benefits once Mars, the planet of action, moves into a harmonious position relative to your sign - in mid-September.

August 2014

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until August 13th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar twelfth house. This is the time to listen to your intuition, to take a break from the hectic pace of your life, and to reflect on what you have learned in the past year. You might naturally retreat a little and take more private time for yourself now. Your physical energy levels may not be up to par for the time being, and this is your body signalling you to take a break. This is not an ideal time for pushing forward with new personal projects and plans. It is better to finish up projects and tie up loose ends now.

From August 13th forward:

The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until August 4th:

Venus continues to move through your solar eleventh house. This is a strong time for putting your ego aside and lowering your defenses and simply enjoying people. It's a good time for networking and settling disputes if there are differences to iron out with friends. Cooperation comes easily, and warm friendships can be made during this cycle. Personal freedom is especially important to you right now, and you won't enjoy any associations that limit you. It can also be a good time for earnings from business.

From August 4-28:

Venus is spending some time in "hibernation" in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

From August 28th forward:

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!
