You’re knuckling down and cracking on, as the planets put you into situations where you can earn your stripes. If others had their doubts, they soon won’t and, as for doubting yourself, there’s no more of that by the month’s end. Don’t be daunted by expert opinions, Leo, do listen up, but also factor in what your gut is telling you and you won’t have any regrets. With Mercury reversing, just word announcements and speeches carefully, or better still deliver them before the 9th.

Matters of the heart

A gentleman with a lot of sway could make an impact on some of you singles this month. You like his lifestyle as well as his air of authority, but there is another side to this fella and you’ll enjoy prising out his secrets over the course of the month – and you’ll be good at it, too! Couples are increasingly likeminded, and that enables you to draw a line under the ‘wondering and waiting’ of recent weeks, with the full Moon on the 16th helping you make a joint decision. With family, too, you have more in common and fewer opposite views.

Luck and cash

Those purse strings are loose this month, Leo. Glitz and glamour entice you, whether you want to play keep-up-with-the-Joneses yourself, or make sure your hubby or kids are holding their own with their pals. You may also have to buy some formal clothes for an interview or other meeting where it’s important you look like you mean business. Travel is looming large in your star chart. Once Jupiter, the planet of foreign affairs, moves into the holiday sector of your horoscope, you probably won’t be able to resist paying a deposit on a trip, or bagging tickets for a major sporting event.

Be sure to…

…do things for yourself. No need to share your masterplan, perfect it behind closed doors first, Leo.


Your ruling planet says: ‘Don’t let you or yours cry over spilled milk. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you or a loved one to learn a life lesson, getting it under your belt is all that counts.’
