If Your Birthday is July 25
(The Day of Quixotic Exploits) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Self-esteem is the key to happiness, and your primary learning project for this solar year. It’s often said that Leos always feel good about themselves, though to others, your doubts may not be as obvious as they are to you. Self-esteem is about respect, which you cultivate like a garden. It’s about taking a balanced view of yourself, and spotting your judgments.
Written in the Planets
Plan your work, and work your plan. Tomorrow’s Sun-Mars conjunction in Leo is offering energy now and the impulse to get moving on something. With both the Moon and Mercury entering Virgo today, notice if your attention shifts to the details — especially what’s most practical or logical. Bear in mind, that’s not the same as being critical of everything. Finding fault only gets you so far in solving a problem; solutions take some heart, optimism and willingness to give things a try.
“Ah Eric — just listened to your reading. I was moved to tears by your closing words. Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville

— Barbara Peaslee, on a previous Leo reading
