The final day of the Leo sun brings focus to the many selves inside each individual. Anyone who wants to get to know you better will wish to know who you are alone, who you are with family and who you are at work. If someone only wants to know who you are when you are with them, it's a bad sign. Run for the hills.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Thinking counts as effort, but nothing comes into being through thought alone. Air must be moved, words spoken, written or sung, action and work of any kind completed. The more air that's moved, the more real a thing becomes.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Generosity is among your most attractive qualities. You'll decide just how much would be appropriate to give, and then double it. It's not a move for every day, but it makes you feel amazing right now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone dreams of a future that includes you. There's the you in a relationship, and then there's a dream-you, who bears a degree of resemblance. A relevant question: How close is the match?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's one of those days when you'll do what's good for you even though you don't feel like it. It's the sort of discipline that makes future decisions easier for you. Soon these things will require no discipline at all.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Giving love the same way as usual is nice enough. But people get desensitized to typical experiences. When you give more and differently, it's like stretching the elastic of your heart to a greater capacity for love and joy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can be sweet, but too much sweetness is no fun. Sometimes, your playfulness can come out in swipes. Knowing how far to go with mischief is the essence of intimacy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your mind is tipping toward the profound today — steady, serious and sincere. That's why you'd do well to clown around with another air sign for a few hours in the name of balance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're an excellent student of life because of your genuine curiosity. You are interested in more than just memorizing what you need to know for life's various tests. Your longing for deep knowledge will be sated.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A whole new level of adulthood kicks in with the realization that others measure the world and themselves differently from the way you do. Accepting this nonstandard system is its own badge of maturity.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know an excellent suggestion when you hear it. You'll follow up and soon be onto an interesting project, one that seems to create its own momentum.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The cats, dogs, insects... even the trees sense things beyond the human range. And what of the person standing next to you? You grow through trying to understand another perspective.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The action will not escalate on its own. The intention of one person makes all of the difference. If you know what you want, then that person should be you. Go on; give things a push.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Aug.21). There's an endeavor or person who makes your pulse quicken — an inspiring influence. And you'll put more effort into the relationship than you ever thought you would, with fantastic results. Your competitive streak will benefit the whole team. A discovery process sends you adventuring. In March you'll invest and win. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 35, 1, 7 and 28.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Too many rules destroy art — and love is an art. TAURUS: You know that you're not the center of the universe, and yet you have to look out for yourself as though you were. It's better than expecting special treatment from others. GEMINI: You'll get a message from the exact person you want to hear from. CANCER: A resolution to love who loves you and in equal measure brings about a thriving cycle in your personal life. LEO: Feed your need for self-care without an ounce of apology or guilt. VIRGO: Those who share your musical taste will track with you on many other levels. LIBRA: Being able to pay close attention to another person isn't difficult, but it's a discipline of focus. You have to keep bringing your mind back to it. SCORPIO: Be easygoing and comfortable, and you'll enjoy an abundance of attention and affection. SAGITTARIUS: Your secret is only safe if you don't tell it. But does it really need to stay a secret? CAPRICORN: They'll think well of you precisely because you don't care in the least how they think of you. AQUARIUS: Your romantic wish will be granted. PISCES: You'll be the one they confide in — a sacred position.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Virgo and Libra are a complement to one another's relationship style, showing and receiving love in ways that the other finds relatable and fortifying. These two are zodiac neighbors who are dissimilar in many ways, but they are as familiar with these differences as siblings under the same roof who have grown up together and observed the behaviors and qualities with admiration.
