LEO JULY 22 – AUGUST 21
LIFESTYLE, CAREER AND GOALS
As a resilient, enthusiastic fire sign, you’re equipped for the dynamic months to come. While August’s two powerful eclipses influence every sign, and the move by both Jupiter and Saturn into new positions will inevitably alter arrangements in your world, the lives of others, as well as your own day to day existence and career, work or even regular commitments.
Expect surprises and be prepared for circumstances to shift, possibly several times. Initially, these events will seem disruptive. You can be a creature of habit and so will be annoyed or, possibly, even battle changes you regard as pointless. Once you learn more, you’ll recognise the benefits you’ll gain from working in a new setting, being around different people or, possibly, learning new skills. The more you broaden your horizons, creatively, professionally or both, the more optimistic you’ll feel about the potential these changes hold.
The ideas or events that are reshaping this side of your life could come in stages, the first triggered by August’s Leo solar eclipse but then yet more by the fortunate Jupiter’s move to accent the structure of your life, on October 22. However you look at it, you’re in for excitement, if not in need of this kind of adventure you’ve been craving.
As a luxury-loving Leo, finding the line between savouring life’s pleasures, both in where and how you live, dine and party, and adopting a practical approach to finances can be challenging. This has been especially the case over the past year, because certain activities were crucial for family, career or even education but were also costly.
With practical Saturn moving to accent how you live in late December, you’ll begin a cycle during which you’ll rethink both what you choose to do, and the costs of important activities and even investments.
While what you learn during this cycle will be profitable, both in terms of what you discover and financial benefits, this will require time, patience and often a willingness to listen to the advice of others – something you dislike doing.
Still, what you learn as 2017 comes to an end and as you live out the following two years will benefit you for your entire lifetime. Not only will this period hone your financial and investment skills, you’ll learn to be patient, a virtue you’ll benefit from in every area of your life.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
Family, close friends, some colleagues and even on occasion, neighbours take a unique place in the lives of Leos. All of these relationships are in flux, mostly because circumstances are themselves in transition. As much as you enjoy exciting times and a touch of glamour, as a Leo, you thrive on routine, sometimes getting into the habit of seeing certain people, and often in the same place, on one particular day of the week.
While that’s fun and pleasurable, it can also prevent you from venturing out into new territory, in terms of your world and experiences. The current planetary setup gives you a timely push to make those changes, at first including new people in that routine, then possibly, in going somewhere unfamiliar.
Inevitably this will lead to new encounters, and to ideas that broaden your horizons, along with those who mean so much to you. While disruptive initially, these new shared experiences add a much needed excitement to your life and those of others. Looking for that somebody special? This is the perfect setup for making that happen, too.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
Although the powerful solar eclipse is in Leo on August 21, the changes it brings may have begun or, alternatively, won’t be immediately recognisable. Explore everything. What’s least expected could be most magical.
WHAT you learn as 2017 comes to an end and as you LIVE out the following two years will BENEFIT you for your entire lifetime. Not only will this period hone your financial and investment skills, you’ll learn to be PATIENT
