If Your Birthday is Aug. 20
(The Day of the Cryptic Secret) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
The sooner you wrap up old business, the sooner your new life will unfurl in surprising and beautiful ways. So focus on cleaning, tidying and making a conscious effort to resolve lingering commitments — whether you’re interested in them or not. The live ones, the ones that you thrive on, will continue, with many bold and unusual adventures ahead.
Written in the Planets
As tomorrow’s big event approaches, Venus forms a square to Eris, which might just have the effect of kicking off the festivities early. The eclipse is pretty much the perfect weather for facilitating any big changes you intend; today’s aspect might give you that extra bit of chutzpah, should you need it. Mars sextile Jupiter, in addition, could bring a welcome boost of energy. Keep an open heart and a civil tongue, however.
To the Leo Eclipse and Beyond!
On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse in Leo signals the second stage of whatever life-shifting process you’re engaged with.
This is a unique year for you, Leo. In addition to the current eclipses (and the double New Moons in your sign), your birthday reading will cover such astrological heavyweights as Chiron finishing up its journey through your 8th house; ever-surprising Uranus; and Saturn leaving your fellow fire sign, Sagittarius — plus more.
Are you navigating changes in your relationships or family paradigm? Do you find yourself at a career crossroads? Are you seeking clarity, encouragement and new perspectives on your creativity, self-esteem, sexuality or healing process? You’ll find ideas and reassurance in this reading.
"I have just listened to your Part 1 and Part 2 readings and I am amazed at how accurate it has been. Like you have a telescope watching me shed a skin and transform into a totally changed person in the last 10 years."
