If Your Birthday is July 22
(The Day of Occupational Fluctuation) | Birthday Readings: Cancer | Leo | Others
Invest your energy wrapping up old business. Start immediately with a list of incomplete projects. Divest yourself from that task, or bring it to closure. Do this for the next month or two and you’ll clear the way for many exciting developments that need open space and an uncluttered mind. You will feel better with these elements of the past safely behind you.
Written in the Planets
Today the Sun enters Leo: the heart of the current season. That it does so close on the heels of Mars suggests an infusion of energy in what is normally the ‘winding down’ phase of the lunar cycle (the Leo New Moon is tomorrow). If you need to take the lead in wrapping up some project or other, the Sun and Mars could give you an added boost to do so. Clear the way for starting something new, and let your heart radiate out through your actions and your very presence.
“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
Your 2017-18 Leo Birthday Reading by Eric Francis will be exactly the support you need to navigate through these exciting transits. It’s now available for pre-order at the lowest price of just $33, so be sure to grab a copy — whether for yourself or the Leo you love — before that increases.
“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
