Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
This is always your month but this year even more so than most. To a point where it is only once you move into August that you will appreciate how long you have been waiting for this. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in Leo, so whether you are a late July or an August born Leo, this is your month. The Sun is your ruling planet and this is the point in the year when the Sun literally comes out for you. This year you had to get through some tough months to get here, which has made the Sun's return to Leo even sweeter. Yet this month we see the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars come together in the same sign for the first time since 2017 and they will do it not once but twice. That they should come together in Leo and with Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos here until 18th August is adding even more excitement to your birthday month and the launch of this new solar year. With eyes, heart, mind and passions on the same page, you can see what you want and howo make it happen. However, it is where they go next that is set to have a profound impact and not just financially and professionally. The last two months have been tough because you had a parade of planets move into opposition with both planets in your work sector in a way that was a case of wave after wave. Yet as the planets one by one leave Leo, starting with Mars on 18th August they will return to your income sector, where they will all end the month. As they do, this will first see them move into a friendly aspect to Uranus, who turns retrograde in your career sector on 12th August and then with Saturn and Pluto, the same planets they all opposed over the last two months in your work sector. This will not only have positive implications across the income, work and career fronts but will help boost your job confidence.
Week beginning Monday 19th of August 2019
After a massive amount of planets came together in Leo last week, with the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars coming together for the first time here at the same time in nine years, they are already disbanding. Together for just six days, this has given your new solar year a massive amount of momentum but this isn't quite over. Mars may have left over the weekend, but with Venus here until Wednesday and the Sun until Friday, the final days of your birthday month are giving you a chance to define what you want from this new solar year. With Mercury, the last to leave not leaving until next Thursday, you have until then to finalise your game plan and resolutions. In the meantime, as each planet leaves Leo they not only return to your income sector but immediately enter a world where there are exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts.
Friday 23rd of August 2019
Your birthday month might come to an end when the Sun leaves Leo today but with Mercury and Juno, queen of commitment still here, this is the point where they're getting serious about tying up loose ends. With Juno leaving tomorrow and Mercury in five days' time but Venus and Mars having only just left over the last five days, the focus has shifted from the 'what' to the 'when, where and how'. As the Sun joins a growing amount of focus on income matters, it is time to get serious about your game plan and resolutions for this new solar year.
The fire in Leo's makes them enthusiastic, optimistic and energetic. They are generally happy, lucky, generous, kind and openhearted; they find it hard to believe ill of others. If injured, they strike back quickly, but they also forgive easily and never hold a grudge. Creative, out-going and self-assured, a Leo's charm can be almost impossible to resist. Though full of ambition and enthusiasm, Leo's have a lazy streak and will take the easy way out if the opportunity arises, especially if the situation offers little fun or glory.
Like the King of the jungle, Leo is the lion/lioness and considers himself/herself leader of the pack. They are fun -loving and love to play. They are ruled by the Sun and when the Sun finally goes in, boy can they sulk! Leo is a child like sign that thrives off attention and they are usually in their prime when they are centre stage. They can be a little boastful not to mention stubborn and because Leo is so good at leading and drama they bring humor and delight to your soul on a rainy day, even if they do seem outrageous! You can't help but adore their warm sunny rays of self expression. They can however, also be incredibly vain and can have a tendency to put themselves before others. They can also be family orientated and are incredibly hardworking once driven. When you have won the love of a Leo they will defend you to the earth but cross a Leo on a bad day and you'll experience a raging fire to say the least!
They are very creative and many are famous actors/actresses and singers, for example Madonna is a Leo
Leo is ruled by the fifth house which connects to creativity and relationships.
Leo's motto is "I Will"
Leos will not back down in an argument and they are more likely to be damaged by pride and ego than the emotions of a break up. However, they are very sensitive creatures and take themselves very seriously. Leos actually hate to be hated and they want you to adore them
Leo's birthstone is Peridot, and is thought to channel the energies of the Sun.
Vulnerable parts of the body are the back and the heart; as a result of this overexertion, heart mummers and various types of back pains are common complaints for the sign.
Leo's lucky colours are red, gold and royal blue.
Leo's are most compatible with other fire signs: Sagittarius and Aries and compatible to a lesser extent, air signs: Gemini and Libra and Aquarius.
