Be flex­i­ble in your rou­tine to­day. Out­side in­flu­ences tend to throw you off track. New ways to or­ga­nize and dis­ci­pline your­self are pos­si­ble now. Here is an op­por­tu­nity to get some in­sight into some of your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that may prove of great value in time to come. This is a great time to re­flect and un­der­stand your own sit­u­a­tion: just how you feel about your cir­cum­stances. A com­pli­cated task de­mands your ex­per­tise. Do not be too hasty in try­ing to speed up the task–you could elim­i­nate some­thing im­por­tant. Later to­day you will find your­self writ­ing notes, mak­ing calls and tak­ing time for those in the com­mu­nity who need sup­port. En­er­getic ac­tiv­i­ties are fa­vored at this time. This even­ing you may make an im­por­tant de­ci­sion con­cern­ing a child.


You are driven and pas­sion­ate in your pur­suit of change and in­ner growth. You are well ad­vised to seek the coun­sel of some­one you trust when it comes to ca­reer mat­ters. Things are hap­pen­ing on which your ca­reer or path depends. Your own am­bi­tion and drive is strong. This is the per­fect time to get ahead by tak­ing ac­tion. This is a real time to set­tle down and con­cen­trate on your goals. Your or­ga­ni­za­tional abil­i­ties and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity will be what guides you and proves suc­cess­ful. Your ca­reer is mov­ing into a much more de­ter­mined and solid form–a firm foun­da­tion. You can en­joy and de­pend more on those fam­ily mem­bers and friends now. You are able to dis­pense with some of the unessen­tial and de­velop what is most ba­sic.


Your ca­reer or life-path may de­pend on your tal­ent for re­spond­ing and mak­ing some­thing out of ideas, in­sights . . . What­ever is new and chal­leng­ing. The busi­ness world may call for your abil­ity to re­act and build on op­por­tu­ni­ties. This is a time for get­ting ahead and a time to en­joy your ca­reer and sa­vor its re­wards. The so­cial graces pave your path to success. Your per­sonal rep­u­ta­tion is of the ut­most im­por­tance while vis­it­ing with ex­ec­u­tives to­day–you will put your best foot for­ward. The key spot in your per­son­al­ity is your mind–the world of ideas and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. You will take the op­por­tu­nity to present your ideas to higher-ups to­day. Un­con­ven­tional and pos­si­bly ec­cen­tric, but pos­i­tive, so­lu­tions to hous­ing are avail­able.


There is lots of early ac­tion on the job to­day. Work through the mad­ness. You may also help a co-worker to get on track to­day. You are wise to pull from your own ex­pe­ri­ence when of­fer­ing ad­vice. Real es­tate plays a big part in your life goals and a sur­prise or un­ex­pected event re­gard­ing real es­tate may be quite prof­itable. Stay with the flow of events and see where the ride takes you. A preg­nancy or up­com­ing mar­riage may come to your at­ten­tion this af­ter­noon. The con­tri­bu­tions you make to­ward a good re­la­tion­ship are very im­por­tant at this time. Give of your time, en­ergy and money to help with this re­la­tion­ship. Joint re­sources pros­per un­der to­day’s en­er­gies. Come to­gether with a plan to ex­pand. Sur­round your­self with peo­ple you can trust.


You may feel you are in the right place to­day– ev­ery­thing just au­to­mat­i­cally falls into place. All the num­bers add up and there are no com­plaints from the pub­lic, espe­cially if you are work­ing in a com­plaint de­part­ment or in an em­ployee de­part­ment. Money ben­e­fits come your way to­day. This is a nice day that should just flow along. En­joy the com­pany of your loved ones this af­ter­noon. Med­i­tate to re­lax your mind. This even­ing you will do well in ac­tiv­i­ties that in­clude chil­dren, young peo­ple and your home and sur­round­ings. You could feel real sup­port and har­mony at this time for cir­cum­stances and those around you. You are com­pas­sion­ate. You also en­joy serv­ing oth­ers, you worry about their wel­fare. Share in mer­ri­ment this even­ing.


You feel a love of or­der and law–an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and duty. You may be called on to help with a prob­lem co-worker or cus­tomer to­day. Prob­lems to­day are val­ued for the lessons they rep­re­sent, rather than per­ceived as ob­sta­cles. You are at your most prac­ti­cal when it comes to deal­ing and work­ing with oth­ers. You know just what to do and can act with­out haste and emo­tion. Close re­la­tion­ships and other ties be­tween peo­ple be­come a fo­cus for much of your en­ergy now. New part­ner­ships are en­tered into; old ones are re­newed or else they are left be­hind. You try your strength against an­other–learn­ing to co­op­er­ate or seek­ing to con­quer. Work, achieve­ment and am­bi­tion are the things that mean a lot to you.


This is a time dur­ing which con­fi­dence and self-ex­pres­sion are per­haps lim­ited and dis­ci­plined. What you achieve now will hold and prove to be last­ing. This time could be seen as a kind of ap­pren­tice­ship dur­ing which you learn to con­trol your­self. You may find your­self suc­ceed­ing and mov­ing ahead by us­ing your mind. Also, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and re­search in all forms could be a key area for ca­reer growth. There are plenty of pos­i­tive as­pects to make you feel up­lifted and give you a de­served con­fi­dence in your­self. Your life takes on a kind of mys­ti­cal qual­ity. Dreams and il­lu­sions, for­give­ness and un­der­stand­ing hu­man frail­ties arouse deep feel­ings. Keep a wish book; then list three things that will get you started in mak­ing each dream come true.


Re­view your pro­fes­sional achieve­ments. Think of ways to im­prove and per­haps be more ef­fec­tive in your ca­reer. There is plenty of op­ti­mism to go around. This is a day for think­ing. You may feel like talk­ing a bit more than usual, ex­plor­ing new ideas or get­ting hap­pily lost in a con­ver­sa­tion. There will be an urge to com­mu­ni­cate and solve prob­lems. Also, per­haps a short trip or a spe­cial phone call is in or­der. Shop­ping this af­ter­noon, you may discover that you cease to waste time and money ac­quir­ing that which is worth­less. You have de­vel­oped an eye for that which is last­ing and worth­while. Your bright wit and talk­a­tive streak make you al­ways ready for a con­ver­sa­tion. You love to get your ideas across to oth­ers–com­mu­ni­ca­tion is at a high.


Tak­ing care of busi­ness is im­por­tant to­day but your mind keeps run­ning over sev­eral lists that you have go­ing in prepa­ra­tion for a cel­e­bra­tion com­ing up soon. Health and work goals are im­por­tant as well as a re­union of fam­ily and friends. Sym­pa­thy and un­der­stand­ing are emo­tional qual­i­ties that take on greater im­por­tance as you deal with young peo­ple this af­ter­noon. There is an open in­vi­ta­tion to have a spe­cial time with a few ex­tra­or­di­nary friends. Mar­riage and other close re­la­tion­ships give rise to great ex­pec­ta­tions now, par­tic­u­larly as a new cy­cle of fam­ily and group achieve­ment gets un­der­way. This is a time to en­joy and ap­pre­ci­ate your ties to oth­ers and to seek and pro­mote har­mony in the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween peo­ple.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

You have an in­ner drive to im­prove and re­form the world, to share the wealth–true democ­racy. You have a feel for groups and any large-scale busi­ness or com­mu­nity project. You can be quite in­de­pen­dent with a touch of the im­per­sonal. With you, all per­sons get the same treat­ment. How­ever, you may re­al­ize this and be­gin to work on a more per­sonal ap­proach with oth­ers. You may even find that you waste less time with hurt feel­ings than be­fore. You will pros­per by pur­su­ing your dreams of how life could be. Don’t be afraid to project that im­age–make those dreams real. This could be a time that you feel very pas­sion­ate to­ward oth­ers and find un­usual ways to help or care for oth­ers–there is in­sight into ac­cept­ing life as it comes.


You find that you can re­ally use your mind to make clear choices. Ca­reer de­ci­sions are straight­for­ward and easy to make. You will find that to­day you may be lec­tur­ing or speak­ing to a group. You have more than just the gift of gab. Your words and ideas can trans­port and en­chant lis­ten­ers, car­ry­ing them be­yond the world as they know it and into the world as they wish it could be. Per­haps you will in­still some de­sire in a few of the lis­ten­ers to think of ways they could con­trib­ute to mak­ing the world a bet­ter place. You may en­cour­age oth­ers to vol­un­teer in help­ing with a read­ing pro­gram for young peo­ple. Peo­ple seem to en­joy hear­ing you speak and they have plenty of ques­tions for you to an­swer. En­joy a light din­ner this even­ing.


An im­por­tant mes­sage could get lost in the pre­sen­ta­tion if you do not have notes. Be sure to write notes for the pre­sen­ta­tion. Then if you do not have the notes with you, it will not mat­ter be­cause you will have gained a fo­cus through the writ­ing. Com­mu­ni­cate clearly with your peers. Do not leave out any ma­jor de­tails. Your crit­i­cal fac­ul­ties are ex­cel­lent to­day and you will pick out the im­por­tant parts of is­sues in or­der to cre­ate a pos­i­tive change. There are good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts and ideas avail­able for you. You are a real charmer–able to en­chant oth­ers and bring them un­der your spell. Work­ing with pub­lic re­la­tions is­sues is your spe­cialty. Your ideals and abil­ity to see the whole pic­ture are ob­vi­ous to all who come to know you.
