Leo Horoscope (July 23 - August 22)
Your ruling planet is The Sun.
Turn around and duck for cover, Leo. The old tricks aren't working the way they used to. As the month progresses, you are spending less time on spreading yourself around and more and more time on internal reflection, taking a voyage to the inside. There you may discover many a rich and yeasty substance that informs your outer presence and make it more whole. Daydreams you may find and bedazzlement in partnership connection also turn out to be a trip through your own interior realms when you have the courage to take back the projection and discover the basis for your admiration in your own inner world.
As the month begins, you find yourself in a dreamy and reflective space, feeling your feelings. The First Quarter Moon of July 3rd in your communications sector may give you pause, as you seek another way to tell your truth to others around you based on the glimmerings of a new form of being in the world, partaking of its deep mystery at the same time as its more surface elements. When Mercury retrogrades in your sign the next day, the 4th of July, it symbolizes yet another call for deep internal reflection. In some important respects you are reinventing yourself and your concept of your future in these next few days and weeks. The Full Moon of Monday, July 10th, brings relationship with others more firmly into the picture. There may be a way that you are still living out old and essentially dysfunctional behaviors in regard to significant partners in your life, and during the course of this monthly cycle are digging deep within yourself for a different method of operating and new ways to see your patterns more clearly. The Last Quarter Moon taking place on Monday, July 17th, represents a crisis in consciousness for you, as you begin to make crucial connections between your situation and the necessary changes that you need to make in order to stay poised. The trickster enters by a different door than the way that you were looking, and you are forced to take an entirely novel level of awareness into account. At the same time, you are more certain than ever of your standing and your need to maintain your physical-plane presence, so that you are shuffling in and out of cosmic connection in an interesting paradox. When the New Moon in your sign comes along a week later, on Monday, July 24th, and the cycle of creation begins again with your birthday rapidly approaching, it's safe to say that you will be experiencing an entirely new ball game.
