Overview for this Month: Leo (All)

August 2013

With the Sun in your sign until the 23rd, all eyes are on you, and you like it that way, dear Leo. Even so, Mars doesn't reach your sign until the 27th, so energy levels may be low and you could be feeling on the fence about a number of matters, after which you confidently and perhaps aggressively go after what you want. The New Moon in your sign on the 6th boosts your personal magnetism. It can also bring pleasant surprises regarding travel or educational pursuits. With Jupiter in your spiritual sector, your general tendency is to play a supportive role to others this year. However, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. With Jupiter challenged this month, you might be dealing with more-than-usual pressures with work, your health, or simply inner restlessness. Inner confidence may be shaky at this time as you try to regain your power. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. Finding a balance can be difficult, but necessary. There is a fair amount of activity in your financial sectors in August, and you can expect some opportunities to improve your financial lot in life. However, difficulties can arise if you are turning a blind eye to debts or a partner's contributions and spending. Mercury in your sign from the 8-24 boosts your ability to socialize and make important connections. The 14th can be particularly strong for meeting interesting people.

August 2013

 

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 16th:Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure.

From August 16th forward:With Venus moving through your solar third house during this period, you are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until August 8th:

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 8-24:

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 24th 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 27th:

Mars continues to energize your solar twelfth house now. While Mars occupies the twelfth house, asserting yourself in a direct and straightforward manner can be difficult. This is largely due to a feeling of not being in touch with what it is you want or desire just for the time being as you reassess your goals and needs. This lack of direction and self-knowledge should prompt you to look within to learn about your desires. It is likely that you will be much clearer when Mars reaches your first house. For the time being, take some time for rest and give your ego a break.

From August 27th forward:

You are able to stand your ground and assert yourself more than usual during this transit. You have energy at your disposal to move your plans forward, and you are more enterprising. You want to leave your mark on the world in some way--however big or small--and you are more able to make an impression than usual. If circumstances are such, you are able to easily fight back. In fact, you may be somewhat combative under this influence, and you may have a short temper. Avoid being pushy. Take charge of your life, but don't bulldoze over others in the process! This is an excellent transit for assertiveness and physical vitality. Love affairs may also be stepped up during this period. On the rare occasion when an accident occurs, it is more likely to involve the head or face.

Overview Horoscope:

With the Sun in your sign until the 23rd, all eyes are on you, and you like it that way, dear Leo. Even so, Mars doesn't reach your sign until the 27th, so energy levels may be low and you could be feeling on the fence about a number of matters, after which you confidently and perhaps aggressively go after what you want.

August 2013 Leo Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

August 2013

 

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 25th:As the natural ruler of the second house, Venus feels right "at home" here. This is a rather content position for Venus, although there can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it—you are more inclined to want more things around you! Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.

August 2013

 

Leo the LionOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until August 12th:

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 12th 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 8th:Venus continues to grace your solar first house now. Something about how you present yourself, your image, and your manner boosts your personal magnetism during this cycle. It's a good time to attract who and what you want into your life experience. You're more charming and you are likely to want to attract things to you indirectly rather than forcefully now, perhaps through charm and playfulness. You have a stronger need to be good to yourself, although a negative expression of this placement can be excessive attention to pampering oneself or taking the easy way out. You especially enjoy making a good impression on others, and peace-making. You might also be paying more attention to beauty and style now.

From August 8th:As the natural ruler of the second house, Venus feels right "at home" here. This is a rather content position for Venus, although there can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it—you are more inclined to want more things around you! Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

From August 1-19:

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 19th forward:

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.

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.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until August 12th:

Mars continues to activate your solar eleventh house. You take a more direct approach to realizing your dreams now, rather than simply hoping and wishing. You might find that you have more energy and enthusiasm for spending time with others, but arguments now may be with or on behalf of friends. You can be especially effective at encouraging others now, as well as at leading or organizing a group.

From August 12th:

With Mars moving through your solar twelfth house, this is the time to research and reflect upon your goals. It can be a time when past actions catch up with you--and this is not necessarily a bad thing! It could also be a time when much of your energy is channeled into private matters, or when you prefer that others not observe what you are doing. This is natural--you may just as well do your best work alone for now. Unconscious behavior patterns could influence the way you assert yourself. Some may experience insomnia during this phase, especially if they are not allowing themselves the chance to recoup and if they are not letting their intuition serve them. Others may enjoy a more active dreaming life (this includes day-dreaming), and, if allowed to run free, the imagination can serve them very well, especially with regards to goals and new concepts.

Overview Horoscope:

With the Sun in your sign until the 23rd, all eyes are on you, and you like it that way, dear Leo. Even so, Mars doesn't reach your sign until the 27th, so energy levels may be low and you could be feeling on the fence about a number of matters, after which you confidently and perhaps aggressively go after what you want. The New Moon in your sign on the 6th boosts your personal magnetism. It can also bring pleasant surprises regarding travel or educational pursuits.
