The regal Lions will be paying more attention to making an impression this week. You'll be in the limelight and make moves on the career front. Up 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 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. Then 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 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.
Mercury, however, is retrograde in penny-wise Virgo, your 2nd solar house. So money schemes, savings and spending will need a careful review. This is followed by the New Moon in your sign (a rare second consecutive New Moon in Leo) producing a Total Solar Eclipse on the 21st. This 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. More on this event next week.
