Go to Top Happy Birthday, Lions!
Noble Lions start the month with the Sun in your 1st house of personality. It is a significant month for Leos, not only the start of your personal solar year, but it's also time to begin setting your goals for the year ahead with greater enthusiasm. The emphasis will be on you! A Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse in inventive Aquarius, your 7th house of significant commitments, sets the scene. This marks the onset of major changes to a relationship. The choices you make could well change your long-term plans, or herald a separation. It doesn't mean it will happen to everyone, because that depends on the impact it has on the planets in your natal chart. It will pay to talk through any problems that may exist, review each other's needs, and reach mutual compromises.

This is followed by the New Moon in Leo this month, a Total Solar Eclipse on the 21st which also has a bearing on your personal needs, relationships, legal agreements, divorce settlements and any degree of open conflict., All of these situations will be of great importance and will serve as a conclusion in some way. It's the start of a new phase in your life.

Mercury is set to turn retrograde on the 13th in Virgo, your 2nd house of personal earnings. Be attentive to discussions on money matters, and analyse your current financial status with great care. Warrior Mars is marching through your 1st house, giving you more drive, but at the same time warning of conflict with others. That said, you will work hard with greater self-confidence and deliberation, looking towards the future and overcoming the obstacles in your path. Use your creativity, dear Leo. Display your natural bravery and leadership powers. The 10th to the 12th mark a good time to grasp ideas and opportunities that may avail themselves. You will be in a jovial mood. The 13th to the 15th presents a good time to evaluate your position with long-term investments or speculations, friendships, love relationships and family ties. From the 16th to the 18th, there's a chance that events and people will steer you on a course in life and relationships.

The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in inventive Aquarius, influencing your 7th house of significant commitments. For the month of August, it is known as the Sturgeon Moon, a name given by native American tribes because they knew that the sturgeon (a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water) were most readily caught during this phase. It is also known as the Harvest Moon, Fruit Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Blueberry Moon, and the Full Red Moon because as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.

This Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse will review a culmination of events from back in February and how your personal and emotional needs have influenced your relationships. It will also affect partnerships, marriage, alliances, agreements, litigation, and dealings with open enemies. With Mercury going retrograde, make sure you understand the finer points in documents, finance commitments, and negotiations. Warlord Mars occupies your 1st house, giving you extra physical and emotional energy, so beware of emotional flare-ups. Verbal confrontations over money, ego differences and dramas are all in the frame. Benevolent Jupiter however will rule by giving you some scope with legal battles and future commitments. That's good news!

The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in regal Leo, your 1st house of personality. Last month we saw a personal New Moon in Leo on July 23rd in the earlier degrees of Leo, and now we have a second rare and significant New Moon in your sign especially influencing those born in the latter degrees. You'll be looking for different experiences, changes to your public image, and possibly your career. Your energy will be greater, awakening the stamina needed for recreational sports and for pursuing your emotional needs through creativity, art and music. You'll be able to work through difficulties with children and relationships with a new outlook and emotional satisfaction. It will be time to reveal a new side to your personality, revealing your self-confidence, drive and inspiration.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into prudent Virgo, your 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. Over the next few weeks you will spend time reviewing your financial status, examining your capacity to earn money and fine tune your budget. It will be a stop-start situation thanks to Mercury's retrograde phase, but you'll overcome it if you formulate a workable budget, avoiding spending on non essentials and other items during this phase. However, Mercury retrogrades briefly into Leo before going direct on September 5th. You'll have to revise the initial ideas you had in place for your personal needs, which are likely to change.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Virgo, your 2nd house of personal finances. Original ideas and plans on finances could well be put to one side while you mull over money matters, agreements and negotiations. On August 13th, the Cosmic Prankster turns retrograde. August will be a significant month for Leo, with a Solar Eclipse in your sign followed by Mercury causing setbacks with money. You'll go back to talks behind the scenes, and work on plans in secret. Either way it's time to concentrate on your earning capacity versus the outlay on expenditure. You may need to modify your budget, speak with financial institutions, and settle some debts. Don't make any hasty decisions with finances just yet, but sift through your statements and read up on the finer points of agreements. If you are waiting on a loan or credit card approval, an increase in your earning or other sources of income, these will take longer than usual. On the 31st, Mercury re-enters Leo, your 1st house, briefly. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the 10th. Mercury will be out of the shadow phase on September 20th, allowing you to make decisions with finances.
Go to Top Venus Enters Leo
Loving Venus remains in intuitive Cancer, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations at the start. You might find yourself working behind the scenes on creative projects, or in societies for the underprivileged, charities, aged care, institutions and hospitals. You'll give of yourself in a sympathetic and compassionate way to help others. This may also involve foster care of animals, or caring for a partner or other person in hospital. Someone from the past could resurrect old romantic feelings, or you may conduct a secret love affair. From the 15th to the 26th, emotions are likely to be very intense, as you deal with your own anxieties and passions. A work colleague or boss could be in the picture while you overcome deep-seated doubts. You may have the urge to travel afar, taking a brief holiday or changing your direction with studies.

On the 26th, the Goddess breezes into Leo, awakening your 1st house and boosting your personality and self-image. You will feel emotionally revitalized and charming to boot, refreshed while putting your concerns aside. This is a perfect time to treat yourself to a visit to the hairdresser, buying a stylish outfit, a beauty makeover or just feeling good about herself. Consider personal wishes, recreational fun and socialising.
Go to Top Mars in Leo
Bold Mars remains in Leo for the rest of the month, propelling your motivation and physical energy, as you sweep the obstacles to one side. It will be a hectic month, but you will have greater energy to achieve your goals. However your temper could flare. You'll be keen to have your own way, which could create friction and ego differences with others. Curb any restlessness with a positive outlet where you can manage any excess energy and be patient with your undertakings.

From the 18th to the 23rd is a favourable time to express your ideas, go on a journey or contact people from overseas. Studies and your own desire for knowledge are stimulated. Between the 24th and the 29th you may meet a significant person who will have a bearing on your plans and direction in relationships. The Solar Eclipse will determine your next move over the coming months. These changes may be sooner than anticipated.
