Friday - - Your Stars -


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, 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.


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
