|leo overview august 2019|
It is all about you this month, and Leo need to put the spotlight back on personal goals and your own growth and development, improving your attitude, your skills, your look, your approach and widening your options.
You need to first take a look at where you are and pat yourself on the back as self-recognition and knowing your own strengths is vital to self-esteem and growth. Nothing can be gained now by being self-critical and perpetuating any negative messages, especially ones with the word ‘can’t’. Look at the areas where you feel less confident and think of ways you can re-work attitudes in these areas; you probably need to stop avoiding them and writing them off and start breaking them down and building them up again.
If you have meant to start something new: from diet or fitness, to dating, to joining a drama group, to meeting new people or doing something creative, now is the right time to do it.
You can recharge your batteries with new activities and new directions that are more in line with your personality and purpose – this is not a time to be self-denying and put others first; you need to take centre stage and assume the role of leading lady or leading man as the hero in your life not the understudy in your own destiny.
Gaining confidence, personal insight, enrichment of your personality, and expansion of your horizons are the positive effects of the eclipse; however, if you are resistant to change and the evaluation of where you need change and growth, there can be arrogance and immediate gratification that is destructive to long-term goals, even if it feels good at first.
Being dissatisfied and wanting more is the first positive step in this eclipse month and is a spur to positive action.
The moon waxes from the 11th to the 26th favouring new loans, funding, grants, tax savings, restructuring in your business and research. This is a good time to receive funding via crowd funding, Patreon or donations. Property deals, home improvements, and investment in family businesses are favoured. This is also a good time for any conservation or green initiative.
