Leo Weekly Horoscope from May 16 to May 22
The week kicks off with a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio that could turn your attention to private matters, but you can’t hide out for long, Leo. Your charisma is sky-high on Wednesday, May 18, when libidinous Mars canoodles with dreamy Neptune in your seductive eighth house. Although an innocent flirtation with a sexy badass can be fun, the emphasis is on “innocent.” If you slide down the slope past innocent, next thing you know you’ve plummeted all the way to “guilty as charged.” Sure, the sex is likely to be HOT, but connections that spark under these skies may not be grounded in trust, to say the least. Deception and mistrust are hallmarks of this cosmic combo. If you’re drawn to someone else now and you’re already attached, you might want to come clean.
Secrets have a way of eating away at relationships, so instead of burying your transgressions deep inside you, rip off the Band-Aid with a quick confession. If you can’t be completely honest with your love interest, how much can your connection grow over time? If you crossed a line, it may be a good idea to sift through your feelings first with a therapist or wise friend to start with. Then you’ll be more prepared to bring this up in a compassionate way with the person who could be wounded by the news. One last tip: You don’t need to give a play-by-play account of what happened. Luckily, this Mars-Neptune fusion can conjure up a spicy, sultry AND soulful vibe. If you want that with bae, place meditation cushions side by side and slowly ease into the sensual energy. Sexy spirituality…who knew?
When the Sun races into Gemini and your eleventh house of teamwork and tech on Friday, lift your shoulder from the wheel and look around you. Many hands make light work, Leo. Come down from your royal throne and convert your personal goals into group endeavors. Joining forces with other great minds strengthens your ideas and improves your odds of success. Maintain high standards and recruit individuals with proven track records whose skills complement yours. Another way to enhance your efforts? Technology FTW! Futurizing some processes can offer peace of mind. Keep your devices updated and let them do some of the work for you. If you want to broaden your online reach, start spiffing up your social media profiles and your website. Photo-editing apps like Snapseed can make your pics look a-mazing. Or get going on your YouTube channel. You have to roll with the times to stay relevant. The Sun will be in this zone until June 21, so either keep your finger on the pulse or hire your team of experts now!
Messenger Mercury has been backing through your communal eleventh house since May 10 and will reverse into Taurus and your career corner on Sunday, remaining there for the rest of its retrograde (until June 3). During that time, you could be handed an opportunity to rethink a professional choice that you’ve long questioned. Mull it over thoroughly before you decide whether the effort this revision will require is worth it. It’s also an ideal period for reevaluating your budget, schedule and resources to ensure that a major project is shipshape. If any changes are necessary, make them in the least disruptive way possible.
