Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
While you love being of service to people, you may be veering dangerously close to martyr terrain. Wake up, Leo: That's no way for zodiac royalty to play the game! Take a breather from being the benefactor and allow the score to resettle naturally. Say no to requests that will sap your energy. You'll gain people's respect by setting healthy boundaries. If you're struggling to complete a task, remember that many hands make light work. Delegate to an assistant, intern or one of the many people who owe you a solid.
Werk, Leo! Drill sergeant Saturn turns retrograde in your house of health and fitness late tonight until September 6th. Pick your poison: Pilates, power walks, laps at the pool? It’s time to sweat it out and get serious about self-care. Your passionate nature can lead you to bury your feelings in food and drink. Review your diet and look for ways to clean it up. Book an hour with a holistic health coach or try a vegan cooking class. Need baby steps? Download a healthy-recipe app or order an easy-to-prep meal delivery like Sunbasket. Saturn’s backward journey may bring an old job back into focus, or you might have to work a little harder to maintain your good standing at your current gig. All the reason to do more stress-busting cardio!
Being cautious is one thing, Leo, but are you limiting yourself in the process? As your ruler, the life-giving Sun, forms its annual alignment with unbridled Uranus in Aries in your ninth house of expansion and adventure, lower the drawbridge and cross the moat. Your mind will be wide open when it comes to new anything: people, travel opportunities, learning different software. Comfort zone, what’s that?! You might even check out a new philosophy or spiritual creed. Don't stress about the "obligations." The point is to sample and explore, not sign up for the lifetime membership…at least, not today.
Up and away you go, Leo! With your cosmic guardian, the Sun, blazing a trail through your career zone until May 20, you are bounding up the ladder to success, ready for whatever comes your way. Your sign's natural leadership skills, not to mention royal-sized charisma, will help you forge a path directly to the executive suites. No reason to mask your ambition. Follow it where it leads—just don't forget the "little people" who help you along the way.
Paws on the ground, Lion. The moon in your hazy twelfth house forms a jarring square to disruptive Uranus, stirring a superstorm of self-doubt. A wave of emotions may consume you, but remember that feelings aren’t facts. Turn the volume down on that berating "inner mean girl" and give your dreams a chance to soar. Projection alert: You could lash out at loved ones when you feel insecure or go ballistic on an unassuming barista when your latte turns up lukewarm instead of "breve." Easy, Leo. Channel those pent-up feelings into a creative outlet or vent to a sympathetic friend.
Breakfast in bed, s'il vous plait? (And how about lunch and dinner too?) With the moon lingering in Cancer and your sleepy twelfth house on Saturday, physical energy levels might be low. A second (or third) cup of coffee won't help. You can try to get your blood pumping with a cardio workout or power yoga class, but why not get in sync with this flow? Spend the day on introspective or creative pursuits, where your imagination and intuition are invaluable. Sunday's quarter moon in Leo restarts your engines, and a stalled passion project could pick up steam. Map out a project plan and take it to the finish line! Also on Sunday: Metamorphic Pluto shifts into reverse in your sixth house of work and service until September 30. You won't be satisfied with the status quo for the next five months. If your job is killing your joie de vivre, look beyond an attractive salary and benefits package and start searching for something more fulfilling. Retrograde Pluto helps you refine and redefine, so if you're not ready to quit, think about what it would take to get you jazzed about the job again. Is it time to hire an assistant, Leo?
