Leo leo
(Born between July 23 - August 21)
Leos are like the Sun, they are shiny, happy people who love attention. They enjoy being in the spotlight. They love glamour, fame, money, elaborate entertainment, and many actors and models are Leos. Think: Lucille Ball and Mae West. President Barack Obama is a Leo.

They love children but may have none of their own, or only one who gets the royal treatment. Leos don't usually have large families. The children of Leos are precocious and doted upon. Even though this is a creative sign, it is considered barren in the fertility department.

Also a fixed sign, they can be stubborn and set in their ways. They like to be in charge, give orders and be waited on. They like make-up, expensive clothes and jewelry. Some of them are artistic, colorful and flamboyant. They can be extravagant.

Even though this is a masculine, active sign, Leos tend to sit around and be lazy. They look forward to their leisure time and enjoy sports, parties, cruises, restaurants, theater and nights out on the town. Even the less fancy Leos like to be pampered and enjoy a comfortable life. They may lose their temper at times but don't stay mad for long. They have a cheery disposition, forgive easily and are very generous. If a Leo likes you he will lavish presents and favors upon you.

This Month's Horoscope
Watch the Full Moon on August 7 and the eclipse on August 21. Both days may be important for you. If you are feeling really full of yourself, or you want to flex your muscle in a situation, this is Mars in Leo running amuck. You can use this energy to your advantage if you are smart. You can make aggressive moves now. Just be prepared to defend your position. Be confident, but also gracious, honest and polite. In leadership, don’t be a tyrant. Be reasonable and fair.
