Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Your ruling planet is TheSun.
You are riding a rocket to the stars, Leo, but the galaxy that you seek is on the inside. You are making a fresh start in material and financial concerns this month, perhaps more by way of adjustments to your values than your pocket book. Relationships with intimate partners are electric for you right now, and may serve to jolt you out of your safe and secure orbit into something resembling freedom. The new life you find may not always seem comfortable but it will always feel clean. It can truly be said of you these days that "all that glitters is not gold," unless you count the gold of rekindled awareness that shines from deep within.
As the month begins, with the Last Quarter Moon from the previous cycle on Monday, September 3rd, you are set for climactic new awareness. Something is bursting forth from you at this time, ready or not, and the formulating life changes that come along with it are better when attended to than ignored. You are on a path of action that takes previous limitations into account in a very different way, and your heart sings with the seething emotion, if you let it. An entirely optimistic feeling of breakthrough is possible, or you also might hold back from allowing everything to hang out there. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse of September 11th is another crux of great challenge and commitment, and perhaps confusion as the shadows of old patterns of relating come up for understanding and healing. Tremendous breakthrough is possible at this time. The First Quarter Moon of the 19th brings more challenges but also the means to cope with them, and seals the deal on personal transformation that is manifesting in your life right now. By the end of the month you are likely to be wiser and more joyful and clearer in your intention for yourself moving forward. The mid-month New Moon is in your Second House of resources and one way to read the energy of breakthrough would be in the area of your finances. The deeper meaning however lies with your values around money issues and with the basis for fundamental safety. You're on the right track when this feeling of security comes from a sense of purpose in your life and trust in the power of the universe to sustain you on your path, rather from anything "out there," including your bank balance.
