If Your Birthday is Aug. 1
(The Day of Original Style) | Leo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You need adventure in your life. Yes, you may be hesitating, though at least your idea of doing something bold exceeds downloading a new app. For you, it’s more like visiting a new country, or trying some form of art that you’ve never experimented with before. And certainly you need friends and lovers who crave the unknown as much as you do.
Written in the Planets
Does your way of expressing yourself (or even your leadership style) suddenly feel like it’s at odds with something you’ve been patiently, persistently planning and working toward? Today the Leo Sun squares the asteroid Pallas in Taurus. With these planets in fixed signs, you’ll have to remember to bring a little flexibility to your actions — and reactions — today. Whether any challenges come from others or from within yourself, remember to listen carefully. This is a time of testing; you can be bold, remembering that a small adjustment to your strategy now could mitigate resistance later.
“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

“Thanks for reassuring this Leo, who is having a year ‘for the books’! You get to the core of things.”
— Barbara Peaslee, on a previous Leo reading
