Leos often find that their intellect is a little interfered with by ego, but this month you are clear and objective. Mercury however moves retrograde on the 4th, so be aware that from that date and before the 10th, family confusion and missed communications can occur and there can be delays on real estate issues and you may not be thinking straight. Between the 10th and 16th your thinking is circuitous and it may be that you are haunted by hiccups with technology or transport. After the 16th there is a greater sense of equilibrium.
At least for most of you, Venus is on your side, which means your charms remain intact and after the 23rd if born up to August 3rd there is a feeling that your sense of self-indulgence can get the better of you a little, and beware of over-generosity to others.
Before the 23rd Mars is much on the side of those born after August 3rd. Romance is in the air, you won’t take no for an answer, you are also creatively forceful and energised. Offspring are very much in your life in a very proactive manner. Take advantage of extra energy and drive.
Jupiter is wonderful now, in his once every 12 year visitation, to those born August 7th to 14th. For this group, romance, travel, luck, speculative interests can all go very well, but there is just the danger of pushing the boat out a little too far, or of being complacent with your feel-good factor, but protection is yours, as is the potential for growth, internal or external.
However if born August 13th to 17th Saturn is holding you in check. Family members and domestic issues are restrictive and limiting, and reality checks abound which ultimately are good teachers for you. Do not kick the can down the road – do what is necessary, even though it's tough and it demands some humility.
Uranus however is very awakening for those born August 6th to 8th. He is good for long-distance and intellectual issues and awakens your conscious to a more super-conscious, metaphysical dimension and gives you a sense of uniqueness and a desire for freedom and a new chapter.
