Leo Horoscope (July 23 - August 22)
Your ruling planet is The Sun.
The tide is turning for you this month, Leo. You are entering into your own velvet evolution at this time, braving the waves of change and dissolving old patterns of partnership interaction that may have been holding you back from entering into your next stage with whole-hearted participation. A great burst of energy is coming your way right now, especially in these early days of May, and you do well to keep your head above water and be as aware as you can of your chances for growth as you plunge into career and professional life in a new way, at the same time as you engage in depth researches into your innermost motivations. Compassionate partners may provide the occasion for either over-idealizing their contribution, perhaps even to the point of outright deception, or else touching more completely the hidden core of truth that underlies your actions.
As the month begins, you are somewhat challenged in your self-concept following the New Moon from the end of last month, and working hard to maintain your poise. You are full of your work in the world these days, and stretching for inner harmony in that process. You may be feeling a bit isolated as you are in the midst of an important restructuring of your personal life. You gain a wider perspective the more that you tune in on the inside. The First Quarter Moon of Thursday, May 4th, is an especially dicey time period for you. You are on the cross of commitment to the various parts of your nature, striving to take the high road through to a larger scale of integration between private and public intentions for yourself. By the time of the Full Moon, late Friday night, May 12th, you may have resolved some of these issues. This is also a time when significant partnerships in your life are emphasized, with an element of idealization that could lead to confusion regarding motives. You are in a very mystical space with yourself right now, and yet entirely practical as well, seeking a synthesis. It might be time to simply embrace the paradox, for life seldom fits into neat little boxes, as we find as we go through, as much as we would like to believe that it does. Your vision for yourself and your world reaches a positive sense of expansion with the New Moon of late Friday night, early Saturday, May 26th, when you are actively engaged in creating for yourself a new future.
