Happy birthday, August Leos! You’ve been blessed with pure unadulterated vigor this month, due to Mars also being in Leo. Use what shred of tact you have not to become insufferable under its influence, and don’t be pushy-- you’ll do fine if you stay positive and on the ball. Burn off frustrations by being more physically active than you normally would. The Leo New Moon on August 19th, 20th, and 21st is the perfect time to start something ambitious by yourself, especially if you were born after mid-August. The trine with retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius will give you the discipline and planning skills you need to be successful. Don’t fidget against its philosophic finger-wagging or the weight of responsibility in your work. These are undertakings with long-term potential to be deeply satisfying. Sun’s sextile with Jupiter in Libra increases your cornucopia of lucky charms, as long as you’re participating and not shrugging like some kind of trustfunder. On August 27th, Venus too joins the Leo party for the next few weeks. Someone may stumble adorably into your life, or inspiration may seize you. Now would be an excellent time to throw (or, for pauper Leo, to attend) a grand party, one where friends-of-friends are welcome. Good feelings and self-expression come naturally, and you will want to feel seen. For Leo-Virgo cusps, the trine with retrograde Uranus in Aries will be the most keenly felt. Unexpected, possibly disruptive excitement will become the norm, and you may learn much more about yourself as a result.

Enjoy the birthday fire for an auspicious month to come.
