23.08 – 22.09 Focus on : waiting it out , your patience will pay off ! While you hold tight for Mercury to come out of retrograde on the 18th and for the Sun to slide into your sign on the 21st , use your intuition to reappraise your relationships . Trust your gut and go for what you want .


23.09 – 22.10 Focus on : your Cinderella moment : it has arrived , minus the curfew ! When your ruler , Venus , moves into your sign on the 6th , everyone will want to get lit with you ( exes too !). Just listen to yourself when it comes to big decisions , rather than polling the crowd .


23.10 – 21.11 Focus on : your current position , woman on top ... We ’ re talking about your job , obvs , because this month may be major . With Mars in retrograde until the 27th , stay focused and follow your instincts , but stay open to inspiration from those around you .


22.11 – 21.12
Focus on : planning a vacay . It ’ s time to see the world IRL . The New Moon solar eclipse on the 11th may kick off an epic trip ( or permanent move ). When the Sun shifts into Virgo on the 21st , resume adulting . Your post-adventure perspective will shed new light on how to turn your dreams into realities .


22.12 – 19.01 Focus on : blasting that Drake playlist — it ’ s time to unpack those emotions so you can resolve whatever ’ s been bringing you down . Mars moves into your sign in a rare retrograde on the 12th , which is your chance to right ongoing issues . By the 25th , you ’ ll feel like a new woman .


20.01 – 18.02 Focus on : bracing for an awesome life , 180 ! Lingering drama will erupt in time for you to ditch all that ’ s toxic before the 15th . If you ’ re single , expect a meet-cute around the 11th . At month ’ s end , you ’ ll have an aha moment , but you ’ ll see more benefit from your epiphany if you keep it quiet .

LEO 23.07 – 22.08
Your love needs are in flux , so if your current flame isn ’ t blazing anymore , it might be time to move on . With the Sun in your sign until the 21st , the wind is at your back , so tap into that energy to find the next person or idea to light your fire .


19.02 – 20.03 Focus on : ticking through your to-dos and getting to the gym on the reg . When Mars goes retrograde around the 12th , a night with old friends will set off a social swirl for the Pisces girl . But mark the 26th , as the Full Moon in your sign will make it memorably magical .


22.05 – 20.060 Focus on : bracing yourself for the future . Your summer has been so hot . Next up : road trip ! Just be prepared for bumps on the way with your ruler Mercury in retrograde till the 18th . And get yourself home before the Full Moon on the 26th , when a huge career opportunity may arise . Don ’ t overthink it . Seize the eff out of the moment .


21.03 – 19.04 Focus on : hitting pause for repairs . While your ruler , determined Mars , is retrograde , put in time with your pit crew , aka your # squad . Once Mercury goes direct on the 18th and Mars on the 27th , the stars put you on the fast track for success !


21.06 – 22.07 Focus on : a staycation . Your pragmatism and free spirit are playing tug-of-war , and a staycation is your ticket to Zen . But with assertive Mars retrograde in your relationship zone between the 12th and the 27th , an interested ex will warrant a tough decision . If you move on , don ’ t despair — a stud will appear on the 25th .


20.04 – 21.05 Focus on : mingling , you ’ re a people magnet this month ! Show your work peeps some love — they need some of your mojo right now . When the Sun moves into Virgo on the 21st , while you ’ re travelling , you ’ ll come across an inviting local ( boy ) wonder you ’ ll need to investigate .
LEO GUY CHRIS HEMSWORTH 11.08.83 Your lion is feeling feisty . Heavy petting ( and honest conversation ) will keep the peace .
