This is a time where you need to let yourself play. Your significant other may be in a challenging mode, but this may prove to be a stimulation for you. Allow yourself to let go of following the rules for just a little while. You may find some new pathways that match your ideals and enjoyment.
Be specific about what you want and what you think is important. This will tend to give you much more clarity in how you need to do things and how you need to adjust your work environment to accommodate what you are working toward. You may have to become a bit more authoritative as those around you may be test your limits feeling that you are more interested in being liked than followed. Undercurrents may prevail. Don’t let the prospect of future dealings with them deter you from standing your ground now. If you don’t, it will be harder to reverse the pattern later.
There may have been a shift you your career recently. This could include how you relate to authority or how others relate to you as an authority. Leo is the sign of middle management so pay attention. You are in the focus now whether giving or receiving. Your bottom line should be how best to utilize the resources at hand more than the rapport that might be developed if a few feathers become ruffled now. Future proficiency is required. It will serve to clarify your ideals and the those of your career.
In health matters, pay attention to teeth, bones and connective tissue. Anything of a structural nature may need an adjustment or a revamping to stay aligned with your own essence rather than keeping pace with your social milieu.
Humanitarian issues will soon present themselves. Don’t let the plight of the underdog and its requirement for you to bend over backward keep you from tending to your own necessities for fear of being labeled selfish. The “tyranny of the weak” is a very powerful tool at the disposition of slick manipulators. Have the courage to stand you ground in the face of social whiners and blackmailers. After all, courage is a quality to be learned and earned by the Leo.
August 2018 Astrolights
This month will have the heaviest effect on Baby Boomers. With a solar eclipse occurring in Leo on the 11th and Mars retrograde and moving back into Capricorn on the 13th, government and social structure will move toward a shift. Rules, their legislation and enforcement will be getting close scrutiny. This includes all areas of life but mostly what is concerned with home and tradition since the previous Lunar eclipse occurred in Cancer. Remember, this is a Cancer country and anything that transpires now will have a powerful effect on what we come to look at as tradition and policy. This also includes the running of homes, small businesses, real estate, parental authority and our perspective on respect and attitude toward national pride and responsibility. Our cultural and national sovereignty is in jeopardy. We are in perilous danger of have it erased and obscured with media’s demand for diversity and the homogenizing of our educational system to accommodate equalizing opportunity for those who are uneducated, indigent or illegal in the name of “compassion” and “racial equality.” This has the effect of obliterating creativity and motivation. National pride is evaporating. We are becoming the world’s orphanage (Cancer) and we are being made to feel that we must take care of them all (Neptune in Pisces and south node in Aquarius). We must develop more respect and recognition for personal accomplishment rather than bickering about which illegal group has more of a right to bleed off the resources and benefits our country has thus far provided for its citizens. We are an at capacity life boat responding to those who demand passage out of their own sinking countries. Tough love is now necessary.
On the 19th Mercury turns direct in Leo. Perhaps, we will gain a bit more clarity in where to draw the lines to preserve our own culture. When Mars turns direct in Capricorn on the 27th, maybe someone in authority will see past their own security to legislate what is necessary to prevent the invasion. Right now, Nero is fiddling, Rome is in flames and the Huns are swarming. We need to defend ourselves if only to survive and maintain our ebbing standard of living. We are at a cultural tipping point…up
