Sun Sign Gossip for August 2008

Leo is an actor. Life is his or her stage. When the curtain goes up Leo shines. Leo will ham it up at every opportunity. Applause and accolades feed Leo's ego. Innately expressive, Leo has a zest for life that is contagious.

No sign of the Zodiac is more regal or generous. Leo is the King of this jungle. There is a dignity, and a royalty about the Leo persona...never a wall flower, Leo can take over the room just by showing up.

Leo can be a romantic. He or she can turn up the heat when it comes to love. Leo knows the Best places to dine, to travel, to be seen and where to frequent and with whom. Sometimes Leo can be snobby, and a bit conceited. This behavior is forgiven by the charm that Leo offers in exchange for a front row seat or a reserved table.

If you love a Leo you need to be his or her number one fan. Your life will be an ongoing theatrical masterpiece. Please do not take your Leo mate for granted. He or she requires nothing more than a kiss and a thank you. Appreciation is the magic for a long term relationship. Make sure your lover has a kingdom and a castle, as well as the proper attire that befits a King or Queen. Remember that the throne has two seats, one for your Leo mate and one for you.

SKY WATCH: Two Eclipses this month: on the first of August is the Total Eclipse of the Sun. It will be visible in total in Northern Canada, Greenland, Siberia, China and Mongolia. We will have a partial view as well as most of Europe and Asia. Eclipses have long been of note for their significance in government and in the ranks of royalty and high profile individuals. To be born on a solar eclipse signals the entry of very prominent person for future generations. Watch the shift of government and the loss of high profile individuals as well as births; the latter knowledge coming to pass way into the century.

On August 16 there will be a partial eclipse of the moon which will not be visible in the US. Less potent then the Total Solar Eclipse, this eclipse will have an effect on weather in the countries it is visible.

Four planets will be in the earth sign of Virgo this month. With the economy so fragile in the US, thoughts of finances and slowing down spending seem represented by this foursome.

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Aries is stunned by how hard he or she is working. Everyday is another against the grindstone. There is talk at work about a possible link between Aries and a co-worker.

Cosmic Advice: Spending is at a slow down, finances are strapped; everyone is verbalizing the issue. Politics aside, the question is being addressed.
