If Your Birthday is July 26
(The Day of the Symbolic Herald) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
A Mars-Sun meeting on your birthday reveals that you are in rare form and ready to conquer the world. Remember, though, that discretion is the better part of valor. Fortunately, your solar chart describes you as thoughtful and careful in your planning, and sensitive to all sides of any issue. Those will be assets worth keeping at the ready. You will need them.
Written in the Planets
Today’s Sun-Mars conjunction in Leo is all about energy; so get active to feel good. The more physical, constructive, creative and personally rewarding your task or goal, the better. That said, if you’re harboring doubts, fears or insecurities of some sort (especially related to what you desire or to your self-image), you could find all this energy challenging to handle productively. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible; it just means you might want to start with manageable and very clearly defined tasks first, or enlist a friend to act as a sounding board. However you’re feeling, keep in mind that Venus in Gemini opposes Ixion in Sagittarius today. Anyone is capable of anything — including behaving unethically, and that includes you. Keep your Sun-Mars vigor on the right side of the tracks, no matter how many sides of the story feel valid.
“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
