Born between: July 23rd - August 22nd
The Leo symbol is a lion and the attributes are mimicked by those born under the Leo star sign as they are proud, strong characters who are passionate leaders which unfortunately may be perceived as bossy.
Even if you seem rather cool and reserved your sophisticated approach will be just what is needed to bring respect from people in authority. Businesslike charm will get you further than frivolity and jokes. If you are on the lookout for a new romance, you could find it from your career environment or perhaps with someone slightly older. It may not be grand passion, but it could raise your social status, and get you invited to all the best places. Passionate colors are hibiscus and raw sugar. Lucky numbers are 69 and 45.
It's a time to withdraw into your own space, Leo. Everyone around you seems preoccupied and indifferent, but you shouldn't take it so personally. Of course, you want to live well, as a Lion should, so you will attract the better things of life, once you regain your natural rulership of the jungle. This will be on Sunday, you'll be pleased to know. Watch a tendency to put too much value on purely materialistic things. Beneficial colors are charcoal and pistachio. Lucky numbers are 30 and 55.
New and challenging experiences appeal, but turn them in a positive direction. Creative change is more than possible, but there is no point in beating yourself up. Your emotions are on a rollercoaster ride, demanding change in your intimate relationships. Your moods may confuse partners used to the old ways, but you really cannot make yourself into what you are not. Favorable colors are rouge and golden syrup. Lucky numbers are 46 and 76.
If you can avoid falling out with people in authority, you'll find that everything feels rather more entertaining than usual. Friendships with foreigners or artistic types are favoured. Romance is in the frame. Restrain a tendency to become obsessed, or to try to maintain too tight a control. Excellent colors are bright orange and burnt umber. Lucky numbers are 9 and 11.
Do not expect much generosity, or support from other people, dear Leo. You may have to work more on your own, so use the time wisely to achieve a little more. Focus on narrow tasks that require attention to detail. It is vital for your sense of well-being and enjoyment to get to grips with feelings of negativity. Auspicious colors are buttercup and blueberry. Lucky numbers are 7 and 10.
You're keen to make more money than usual. You acquire new possessions, but with that comes more responsibility. Long term goals and security are very important. A flamboyant lifestyle appeals to you, so you're likely to indulge yourself in the short term. Fight to defend your rights and ensure that you get your due rewards. Beneficial colors are beige and mustard. Lucky numbers are 14 and 33.
You need to be more light-hearted in conversations and discussions today. Try to keep an open mind and don't be tunnel-visioned. You cut quite a commanding figure at social functions, attracting attention by your charismatic presence. Just don't let your social ambitions push you into overstretching yourself, whether financially or otherwise. Advantageous colors are burgundy and wheat. Lucky numbers are 33 and 63.
You are very responsive to the mood around you at work and therefore good at handling group situations. Incentive and ambition are tugging at your sleeve, but you're putting it across in a very nice way for other people. Bravo, Lions! Avoid switching from one feeling to another without warning, because that makes it tricky for close relationships to run on an even keel. You need a tolerant partner, who will let you run your own race. Resourceful colors are turquoise and topaz. Lucky numbers are 55 and 25.
Your intuition is working well, so you can look ahead and know a little of what is coming. Mixing with folks from different countries and cultures will put you in brighter spirits. A real attack of wanderlust makes it tricky to settle down to anything requiring concentration. Don't be stuck in a corner doing tedious chores. It's time to get out and about, seeking adventure. Let your imagination soar. Positive colors are bright orange and pale hyacinth. Lucky numbers are 63 and 39.
The Equinox is the time of year to review your beliefs and philosophy of living, and the Aries New Moon presents the perfect opportunity to set the wheels in motion. Your outlook does not remain static from childhood to old age, due to the movements of the planets. You constantly discard what no longer fits and take in new information that urges you to alter your approach. Co-operation is not always easy, but your enthusiasm is catching, so folks should rally round. It's the start of a new way for you. Fortunate colors are indian red and aztec gold. Lucky numbers are 9 and 14.
Yes, it's the Equinox, always a fabulous time for the Lion, as the Sun, your life-ruler, awakens the vernal point. In coming weeks, the need to broadcast your opinions, whether directly or through writing and publishing, intensifies. Be more generous in contributing time and talents to religious, educational or political institutions. Advanced education or training is stimulated. Outgoing and assertive when travelling abroad, or dealing with those of a different race or culture, you are inclined to take risks and become more daring. Read more on the Equinox! Excellent colors are bright red and sunny yellow. Lucky numbers are 9 and 27.
You come across as honest, outgoing and confident, Leo, as the Sun strides into Aries. Good with words, you make a popular companion at work and in your leisure activities. A charming message is in the frame, or a chance encounter that leaves you feeling rather floaty. Maybe it will just be a passing moment, but it will bring a deeper sense of connection to a better world. Try to remember it when you have to get back into the hassle and hustle. Excellent colors are vermilion and ebony. Lucky numbers are 9 and 33.
Not that you are normally timid, dear Leo, but you need to stand up for yourself. Assert your views in a firm yet tactful way, and you'll be pleased with the outcome. Keep this experience in mind for the days to come when you may need to rise to a similar response. Aim to gain a more solid reputation, and guard your position, but don't sublimate your real feelings in the determination to succeed. Favorable colors are hyacinth and rich raisin. Lucky numbers are 10 and 50.
This is not a day for routine chores, boring people, or anything that requires much self-discipline. People will be amused to be around you (as always!) so there's no doubt about your popularity. However, you must watch a tendency to be over-optimistic. Take care that you don't let your enthusiasm carry you off into unrealistic financial schemes. Fortunate colors are strawberry and parchment. Lucky numbers are 13 and 15.
You are feeling more strong, sensual and determined, Leo. You will not readily divulge what you are thinking, feeling or planning to any but your most intimate partners. All that dynamic energy is channeled into your career, so you can plan to achieve your ambitions. Because of this focus, you may find it very difficult to understand people who lack your drive. Just remember that everyone is different. Beneficial colors are dark slate and pink salmon. Lucky numbers are 46 and 38.
Fix your eagle eye on the things that need looking at. Then you can pick up the tricky details that need to be sorted out. This is not the time to keep your head in the clouds, or amble along relying on luck to see you through. Do not promise more than you can deliver. Your intentions are good but you may be getting over-enthusiastic. Fortunate colors are banana and old rope. Lucky numbers are 8 and 15.
Pesky details are a distraction now, since you want to see the broad picture, dear Leo. Just watch you are not being impractical or unrealistic, especially at work. People demand a lot of you and you have to go out of your way to make sure everyone is well looked after. If you feel emotionally pressured because of that, take time out to enjoy something for yourself now and again. Appropriate colors are sienna and cranberry. Lucky numbers are 37 and 41.
There's a spontaneous mood in the air, so let it all hang out and step into the spotlight. The venturesome Moon is dancing in your house of light-hearted romance, children and entertainment, so you will be seeking center-stage. Are you in two minds about almost everything? Get clear on whether to follow your head or your heart. Auspicious colors are chestnut and rose. Lucky numbers are 14 and 22.
Intense encounters are in the air, Leo. They may not be actual confrontations in the sense of a flare-up, but no one seems willing to co-operate as much as you had hoped. Achievements may be slow in coming, so don't expect instant results. Don't pull your punches, follow your hunches. Fortunate colors are indigo and green peridot. Lucky numbers are 37 and 20.
Mercury turns retrograde in your ninth house of travel and adventure today, slowing down your pace for the next three weeks. Travel is not what it used to be, now that we have entered a new age of *increased security*, but of course, this is for our benefit. Those of you involved in higher education, publishing, religion or other cultural pursuits may be frustrated by red tape... just take a deep breath and have patience. Read more on Mercury retrograde! Adventurous colors are cerulean blue and carnelian red. Lucky numbers are 9 and 17.
This is a good day to retreat into a private place, preferably at home. But even if you're at work, you need some kind of protective niche where you can avoid awkward people, and hassles. If you have creative or diplomatic talents, put them out on display. You can turn your dreams into reality over the next couple of weeks, but you will have to discipline yourself. Creative colors are chestnut and terra cotta. Lucky numbers are 21 and 15.
Feeling flirty? You're probably spending money like mad on rather more entertaining things than usual. This is not the day for solid, sensible routines. Are you pining for that sensual electricity which switches all the neon lights on? Well, it seems as if your mind is delving into areas other people find obscure, so when you come up for air, go for it! Adventurous colors are rouge and honeycomb. Lucky numbers are 66 and 75.
Keep moving, but be wary of foot-in-mouth syndrome. If you leap into saying one or two things too sharply, it won't work. But if you're clear in what you're saying, then others will appreciate it. Avoid homing in on one matter to the point of obsession - so focused in on the detail that you can't see the broader picture. Focused colors are pistachio and citrine. Lucky numbers are 9 and 11.
It's a Full Moon in picky Virgo, so the coming fortnight offers an excellent opportunity to get your money matters in order, and to pay particular attention to your everyday finances. For instance, you should go through bank and credit card statements in case they contain mistakes, and also pay any overdue bills before they lead to trouble. If you've been overspending this will be a good chance to cut back on your outgoings. Beneficial colors are burnt orange and smoky quartz. Lucky numbers are 2 and 8.
You're not going to feel secure until you get your finances in shipshape order, Leo. Even if your intimates have a slightly different agenda to yours, your priority should be to protect yourself as much as possible. Then you can fit in with whatever joint schemes are important. If you are feeling more intense than usual, stay with the mood. Propitious colors are sandstone and aubergine. Lucky numbers are 14 and 27.
Stay close to what you really feel, Lions. There's no need to be too sentimental or sugary sweet on the surface. Try to be more honest about your real feelings. You want to be admired now, so you are putting a great deal of stress on how you look, so avoid airs and graces. Control your appetites. Favorable colors are graphite and heather. Lucky numbers are 5 and 35.
Feeling generous? Or indulgent..? What is most attractive about yourself: physical beauty, artistic talent, or a charming personality? Don't wait for others to notice you; put yourself in their direct line of vision. The next few weeks generate excellent relationships with older family members, superiors and authority figures. Allies, spouses, or other partners may receive recognition or special promotion at this time. Beneficial colors are peach and musk. Lucky numbers are 11 and 58.
Saturn and Venus force you to be honest and direct about your feelings, so if you want loved ones to be open and above board, be sure to keep lines of communication open. Ask for what you need - which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted. Playful colors are antique silver and glossy obsidian. Lucky numbers are 31 and 23.
If friends are a bit edgy, it's because not everyone wants to dance to your tune. But your straightforward approach cuts through barriers to the point of situations faster than usual. Lordly Jupiter, planet of good fortune and developing potential, is in your house of career so you should be having a good deal of luck. Don't let material aims take over too much, but find time to consider what else you value in life. Providential colors are maroon and ginger. Lucky numbers are 9 and 25.
Information (or the way you use it) can greatly enhance your personal image, Lions. Others look more favorably on your accomplishments now. Your approval will no doubt also be sought. It's an excellent time to launch a writing or communications project, engage in business transactions, or begin a journey. However, subtle clues and to the unspoken needs of close companions can get you pulled into everyone else's problems. Appropriate colors are chartreuse and spanish leather. Lucky numbers are 44 and 76.
The Moon sashays through Gemini and your solar eleventh house, bringing connections with friends and avid discussions about where you're going and what you're doing. You can bounce ideas off those around you; talk about anything and nothing, just for the sake of enjoying conversation. Pay close attention to any ideas that stimulate you. Make the most of a busy day. Uplifting colors are off white and butterfly yellow. Lucky numbers are 12 and 23.
