This week's superstar Leos are Charlize Theron, born August 7, and Hulk Hogan, born August 11. What lies in store for this week's birthday girl and boy? Well, the great news is Jupiter goes direct on the 7th, with Mercury in Leo trining him on the 9th. This week's Leo will live a year boldly speaking from the heart. You will lead with vision, optimism and courage under all circumstances. Good thing, too. With Venus retrograde in Leo squared by Mars, this year you must put your heart on the line, and defend what you hold most dear. The cool thing is, you actually stand a chance of discovering what that really is. You can't imagine what you're capable of until you do it, my friend, and this is a year for doing whatever that will be. Remember: You Have a Future!!!! The Stars that You Are Weekly Horoscopes: Remember to read for the sign on your ascendant too!
Newton set forth three laws governing motion: inertia, acceleration, and reaction. Objects in motion (that's you, Aries!) stay in motion unless another object deters or halts them. Also, due to acceleration, an object's motion depends on the force with which it is propelled. In your case pretty hard, misters and missies. Look, it may not be clear exactly how it's happening, but your plans are moving forward quickly now and they're only speeding up. Of course you can't predict what object might get in your way, but your forward force is pretty formidable. Those other objects better watch out! It's physics.
You've been packing heat the past month but with Mars leaving your sign you may find you'd just as soon take a vacay to Cabo as pick up the reins and keep riding that horse across the desert. Nevermind, Taurus, you packed enough water, jerky, and sunscreen to see yourself through when you were full of vim and vigor. All that's left now is to stay on your horse and keep trekking. The reason the western is so popular is 'cause it's so freakin' COOL and although it may not feel like it 7 hours into an 8 hour day on the saddle, that's probably when you're the coolest and you don't even know it. How cool is that?!
Can you feel it, Gemini? Mars is crossing into your sign and Jupiter is going direct. The eagle has landed and the chickens are coming home to roost! Yes! It's time for all good Geminis to stand up, be counted, and get your ducks in a row! I know, all this gibberish doesn't make a lot of sense, but the point is, Gemini, you can see through to the heart of everything now and it doesn't matter how badly I say it, you are gifted with the ability to get it. Now, we are counting on you to translate 'cause that dial is pulling in mostly static for everyone else. Better get busy, those chicks are about to hatch!
Moving into an old house brings particular challenges which may reward the owner with riches unavailable to the modern homeowner. For the dedicated lover of an old building these obstacles may be part of an elaborate ritual of courtship, fixing faulty wiring simply further proof of love, a part of the process of getting to know one another, developing trust. This week, Cancer, you may hit a stumbling block on the road to completing a special project. Remember some walls aren't meant to be knocked down, but sometimes restoring something means making it new. Writing history is participating in it.
The key to making a great musical compilation is knowing how and when you will listen to it. Lifting heavy objects? Fast-paced, heart-pounding songs that make you feel like a superhero are key. Driving 7 hours straight? You'll want music that makes you feel like you're going somewhere, mysterious and a bit haunting. Leo, if I were to look for the music of your life right now I'd find the soundtrack for an IMAX movie about flight. You've got a bird's eye view of your life, and where you've been is as clear as where you're going. The horizon stretches ahead of you in every direction. The choice is yours.
The last place any self-respecting cat would be caught would be anywhere near your tongue, Virgo. The upcoming month sets the stage for you to set the stage anyway you'd like, and the key will be how you communicate your vision to those who can put it into play. Fortunately, not only is your vision crystal clear, but you also possess the capacity to translate it into versions everyone around you can understand. The trick will be to do it in the limited time available to you. This week is the last one available to plan your attack, so get busy, 'cause by next week you'll be out there, and fur will FLY!
Black football player Ian Johnson proposed to his ecstatic white girlfriend, Chrissy Popadics, on live TV in January. The two were married July 28th despite numerous death threats against them. More important than his skin color, however, is Johnson's sign, which happens to be romantic Libra. This week take a page from his book and follow your heart. Your passions will be easy to spot and even a retrograde ruler can't stand in your way when it comes to following your intentions. It may not be exactly as you would like, but it will be as you said. Rejoice and be happy. It's the right thing to do.
Remember in Empire Strikes Back when Luke ventures into the Dagobah Swamp to face his fears and finds an imaginary Darth Vadar? Spooky. It was even scarier than when he actually met him in the flesh later in Cloud City and lost a hand to him. It just goes to show you that nothing is worse than your worst fear, not even Darth Vadar. The good news this week, Scorpio, is you've faced your fears head on and if you're reading this you're still standing. Whatever comes next, you've got The Force on your side and Yoda at your back. It's a good thing. Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.
Did you hear about the mysterious anonymous benefactor who gifts unsuspecting and seemingly random Japanese citizens with enormous wads of cash? Sag, this week if you've got the greenbacks you might be tempted to follow suit. Now that Jupiter's direct the only thing that could possibly mar your happiness is that others might not get how absolutely FABULOUS life REALLY is. Never fear, Sag, with Mercury sliding into Leo and Mars into Gemini, you are about become absolutely irresistible. No one will be able to say no to you, and the world is your oyster! Just the way it should be.
Being a superhero takes more than superhero powers. If all it took was the ability to fly and knock people out then the Green Goblin would have as many fans as Spiderman. But it takes more. It takes a commitment to making a difference in the world even when all hope has been extinguished. Now, all hope has NOT been extinguished, Cappy, but this week you may be frustrated trying to see how it will all come together in the end. Don't fret, reach deep into your superhero pockets and remind yourself of your cause. 'Cause it's the cause that makes the superhero, not the other way around. Shazam!
There we are at a coffee shop or standing in line at the movie when we hear a familiar laugh that gives us goosebumps. Our EX. No matter how long it's been there are some people who can always send a sliver of something extremely cold all the way down to our toes. Aquarius, this week there is someone out there who makes you feel things you thought you buried. Ask yourself what this person represents you once thought you needed. You may find you don't need it anymore. If it's someone new than what if it IS something you need? In either case, it's time to stop hiding. Sometimes it takes loving to live.
You're about to head into a storm, Pisces. But those radio alerts don't apply to you. Storms are wild, willful, beautiful things and if you batten down the hatches, secure the rigging, and keep your wits about you, you can weather this one. This week get your ship in order. Of course, critical to surviving any elemental battle is knowing when to surrender to it. When this storm is over you may find your ship has drifted off course, but look where you landed! An undiscovered tropical island in the middle of the Pacific! You couldn't have planned this better, and the funny things is, you didn't. Or did you?
