Leo: The Lion
Leo: The Lion
Leo, I’ve been reminding my friends that Saturn’s transit in any sign reminds us of one very, very important rule of thumb: do the right thing at all times. That’s what I feel compelled to tell you, Leo, and perhaps it means something to you.
This New Moon energy should have you feeling up, vibrant, and able to tackle challenges. There’s one long-standing challenge that you’ve not found a solution for and it seems related to finances or housing, or both. The finances seem to take a turn for the better soon and a friend seems to have a hand in it. The housing situation seems a little confused; either you will have to leave your current residence soon and must find a new one or there is some remodeling or redecorating going on at your present home. Maybe someone’s moved in with you or someone’s moved out and you’re capturing space for yourself.
I know Leos and you sure can be randy! Sometimes you just get caught up in one love affair after another. Even if they are only love affairs in the mind, for you single folks. What I suggest is that you take this New Moon, energy and put it to good use. Maybe put the relationship chasing aside for a time while you sort out your next important moves.
Contemplate: A man keeps his focus by channeling all his energy into creating a business plan into the wee hours of the night. When he’s tired of working on the plan he sleeps peacefully.
Caveat: You may need to forgo the physical side of life for a time while you work on the practical, like money, shelter, and career. If all that’s settled and there are no issues, then it’s time to organize your thoughts!
This one’s for Skooter who made the mistake of telling me he’s a Leo. Well, everyone knows that Leos may have been someone important in a past life, if one subscribes to such a thing, but this time around this is not the case. While many of them still walk around gathering subjects to do their work, sooner or later Leo learns (in this incarnation) that if they want something done they have to do it themselves. Nothing will be handed to Leo this time around. While they may have many willing friends who will lend a hand if they are not put upon, there will always be that one friend who reminds Leo that he’s no king in this jungle. Simply put, this time around Leo will make their own way, do their own work, clean up their own mess, and learn to support himself. It’s a big jungle out there, Leo. You look great but you’ll have to brush your own hair this time!
ASTRO-MINDER™ Thursday, July 3, 2014: If you feel like things are picking up speed it’s because they are. Mercury is direct and gaining momentum. Most of you will notice there are suddenly several irons in the fire and they look a whole lot like the irons from the end of May; that’s because they are. This is a good thing, trust me! You do trust me, don’t you? C’mon. I’d never hurt you. I LOVE you too much!
This is the third and last time you’ll have to go over these same wrinkles to iron them out for good! So be sure to do what you have to do, get it right this time, use some spray starch if you have to, but get things smoothed out as best as you can. We’ve talked about the sense of discomfort that we will feel around the 4th. If tomorrow, July 4th celebrations, in the USA aren’t really appealing to you because you’re feeling kind of “off”, then mind your instincts and just stay at home.
If you have pets, of course, protect their sensitive ears from fireworks and be sure they are secured so they don’t bolt out of your yard and into a road or street. My pretty chocolate labrador went missing one year for many hours and I thought I would never see her again. Monty, my 20-year-old, thought to, um, water a tree with his scent so the dog could smell him and her way home if she’d become lost or was disoriented. It sure did work: Truffle showed up exhausted and a bit worse for the wear, and now I never cease marveling at the power of pee!
Be safe, my friends. Don’t drink or do drugs and then drive ANYTHING because you could kill someone or a few people and you’ll likely live to see the rest of your life in prison. That’s if you don’t end up in a vegetative state the rest of your life. Think on that.
God bless you all! Happy 4th!

Relax, lovely Leo! Cooperation does not mean you are a door mat or means that you are lowering your (very high) standards or somehow bending over. It means you’re mature enough to know that if each side gives a little slack, the rope is never too tight to adjust. Right now, you may be feeling that to get something you want you have to give in to something you don’t want to do or become someone you don’t want to be. That’s not the way to look at it, dear Leo, that’s not the way at all.
You are often too rigid in your thinking and sometimes it’s your way or no way. That’s a bit overbearing, is it not? You wouldn’t want the next person to be as rigid or strict as you are anyway, whether you admit this to yourself or not. It’s like this: two wrongs don’t make a right, two lefts still make a left, but two RIGHTS always make RIGHT! Do you see how that works? If you and I are on opposite sides of a rope and we are both pulling in opposite directions, eventually one of us will fall and it won’t be like winning a game of tug of war, and in fact, I may be upset that you pulled so hard I fell and skinned my knee. But if you give a little slack to me and I pull more, and you keep giving me some slack, eventually I won’t pull my end at all and we can roll up that rope and play another game. Likewise, especially in partnerships and relationships of all kinds, both parties going in opposite directions will result in tension and even discontent with the situation. While at times you may say, “Well, I did my best, I pulled — that is what I was supposed to do according to the rules, anyway, and since he/she won’t play fair, I won’t play at all” you’re wrong to assume that giving in to the next person means forfeiture of the game.
Life is not a game, Leo, and life is not meant to be lived rigidly without regard for the next person’s needs or wishes. Life, love, and partnerships work out better when at least one of the parties makes it easier to move forward, even if that means you cut the next person some slack.
Contemplate: Leo, this is a good time to practice cooperation, compromise, and even letting the next person have their way for a while. Otherwise you’ll just end up in another stalemate and you’ve been down that road before. Relax a little, give in: this will produce the best effect at this time.

Something you didn’t fully resolve or settle is still on the table, Leo, and you can worry about it or you can do something with it. It doesn’t matter now that you didn’t handle this before when you could have — that’s counter productive to solving the problem once and for all. Maybe it’s a relationship issue you didn’t want to stir the pot about. Perhaps it’s a deal or work related issue that you didn’t make enough time for. Or, it’s a family or child/sibling issue that you didn’t pay enough attention to. Whatever it is, you can now start the process of analyzing it and solving it — do not table it again or it will never be over. February is a good month and though you may be thinking that you are handling things well despite the sensation that something is not quite right, you have time now to do something about it and the month will not be challenging like other months past, January, or 2011. Just get this thing taken care of and don’t worry about the outcome as much as focusing on solutions. You’re very busy with work and work related issues because your zodiacal house of work, jobs, occupation. That’s fine to handle what’s needed but don’t let work become excuse for not solving this long standing issue, whatever it is. Just get this taken care of and you will feel much better no matter what. Watch your finances as they pertain to join finances, shared resources, personally and professionally. Now is not the time to trust as much as it is to analyze.
Contemplate: Resolve the old, longstanding, once and for all even if it is uncomfortable. At least it will be off your mind.
