Today's Leo Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
July 31, 2021
There can be some mental fog or complicated technical problems or news to manage with a Mercury-Neptune transit today, dear Leo. You express yourself with more empathy, but you may be dealing with others' unrealistic expectations of you. There could be worse problems to deal with, and it's temporary. Still, it may be best to find a balance between following your intuition and meeting your responsibilities to feel truly satisfied today. Following only one of these paths and excluding the other might create resentment or guilt. You might decide to be a little more mindful than usual about what you say and how you say it. A hobby or a romance can have a powerful effect on you today, and dedication to something (or someone) you love motivates and drives you. Especially as the day advances, you can feel inspired to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- The Moon spends the day in sensual, practical Taurus.
- However, Mercury’s minor square with Neptune can be somewhat disorienting. We tend to avoid confrontation with this transit, attempting to move around issues or otherwise taking an indirect approach.
- We’re more likely to perceive situations in an impractical or overly optimistic way under this influence, making it less than ideal for clear thinking and handling details.
- Still, with the Sun and Mercury in harmony with Juno and the True North Node, we’re in good shape for strengthening and supporting one another and, in the process, building trust.
- We take more pride in our relationships or projects, and we’re willing to put more effort into them.
- We want to learn, reason things out, and gain knowledge as a means to empower ourselves.
- These transits encourage us to grow, improve, and rise to a challenge.

This Month: Leo
August can bring you a boost of personal popularity, dear Leo, even if it starts with a minor delay. The month is also strong for financial initiatives and ideas. It's best to make resolutions around the New Moon in your sign on the 8th and then wait a few days for new beginnings. You’ll be getting a lot of attention, sometimes unexpected, in the first three weeks of the month, after which you tend to settle quite nicely into usual routines.
Your personality is shining, and you project quite a bit of strength this month. You’re also more talkative and energetic beginning the month. You can be busy and in demand, and people hear you and notice you more than usual. It's a time of potentially significant realizations, epiphanies, and clarifications. Mental renewal and increased decisiveness figure strongly as you see details you overlooked in the past.
Mercury in your sign until the 11th is particularly favorable for feeling the ball’s in your court, and the Sun in your sign until the 22nd is similar. You can quite safely turn on a bit of drama now and get away with it! You feel in charge.
The New Moon in your sign on the 8th is a feisty one. Before then, it's best to learn what needs to be left behind so that you can start fresh. It’s a time for setting your intentions for the year ahead related to your personality, independence, personal image, and effectiveness. Consider making personal changes that empower you. For the most part, the more positive energy you radiate, the more opportunities open up. Aim to put forth the best version of “you.”
Personal development and plans related to improving health and wellness are in good shape this month, and this New Moon is a real kickstarter -- if you’ve put something off, you’re quick to recognize the need to get going! Tensions and rebellious feelings can stir you into new beginnings. You may want to break free from others’ expectations of you, which is valid, but do watch for too-quick or reactive decisions.
The practical side of life holds great interest for you in August. Your natural talents are in demand this month, and you have a strong sense for using them resourcefully and to your advantage. From the 12th, you’re in a better position to figure out the right financial and business moves to make. While this is primarily a mental thing, from the 22nd forward, you’re more fully invested.
Until the 15th, Venus helps you with your finances, personal belongings, valuables, and business. It’s a decent transit for relationships, too. Although your connections are pretty much status quo during this period, you are more inclined to value yourself and what you have to offer -- an attitude that reverberates back nicely to your relationships.
In general, you seek ways to make your life more comfortable. In fact, personal finances figure prominently all month. You may get the chance to improve your financial position. There is good energy for taking better care of your valuables, for money or gifts coming in, and for enjoyable and perhaps indulgent moments for comfort and pleasure. Your appetite for leisure is strong, and at the same time, you’re focused on long-term security, ideally helping you keep spending within reason. Nevertheless, you may have to fight off the urge to splurge with impatient Mars moving through your sector of money and resources all of August.
With Mars in your resources sector all month, you’re ready to work especially hard for security, and you are also quick to defend yourself. This transit boosts your desire to live in more comfort, too. You more readily identify sources of waste or fear, and you take steps to put them behind you. A great idea now might open the doorway to an increase in income down the road. There can be a focus on more self-reliance when it comes to money. Finances can also be a hot topic with others, and there can be some volatility involved, but ultimately, stronger motivation to take charge.
From the 16th, Venus in your communications sector points to a real need to share your ideas and decisions with someone you care about. This transit also brings out your charm in communications and suggests that getting what you want can be easier with kind words and bonding with others on a mental level.
There can be exciting ideas about business, money, and practical matters in August, particularly around the 19th. Still, there can be some impatience, and skipping necessary steps can lead to problems. Uranus turns retrograde on the 19th--a five-month cycle that has a way of inspiring you to examine needs related to your long-term goals, career, or reputation. You’ve been reshaping your reputation and carving out a unique identity, mainly through your status or profession. Now it’s time to analyze, plan, and reassess.
You can sometimes do battle with your intense desire for partnering, clashing with your striving for independence. A partnership can demand your attention around the 22nd when a Full Moon occurs in your partnership sector. This is the second Full Moon in this sector this year, and feelings blossom. You’re clearer about what’s in your heart about a relationship or partnerships in general. Aim to pay special attention to what others are teaching you about yourself now. Around this time, imbalances in your life become glaring. Recognition of relationship needs and feelings can come in a rush.
You can enjoy unique insights and intuition into business and work methods. Given a bit of space to think and follow your hunches, you can be remarkably resourceful and enterprising.
From the 22nd forward is an excellent time to settle in and turn your attention to projects with long-term potential and require patience. Still, the need for mental engagement is building, and new interests can be exciting.
This Year: Leo
2021 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year 2021 is a powerful time for sorting out your one-to-one relationships, dear Leo, and for discovering your passions.
Partnerships are evolving this year. It’s about commitment–whatever you choose now, you’re all in. You’ve brought more seriousness and maturity to your work and health pursuits in recent years, and now this energy is shifting towards your key one-to-one relationships. There will be times when your relationships feel heavy, but the potential is high for stepping up and sorting out this area of your life in no uncertain terms.
Your career continues to need unique and new approaches–you’re reinventing yourself on professional or public levels. The process is a lengthy one, with Uranus shaking up your solar tenth house for several more years. Still, it’s an important one as you seek more freedom or authenticity.
Even so, your life-path goals can frequently feel at odds with relationship goals in 2021. Both areas of your life need special attention, and neither should suffer because of the other.
You’ve been doing your social and romantic life differently, and this continues throughout 2021. Friendship, networks, associates, teams, and happiness goals continue to bring some challenges and rewards. Sharing the load may mean sometimes sharing the credit, but overall, you’re in good shape for rounding out your experiences. Awakening to your true feelings for a friend or lover can figure strongly. Putting more energy into friendships can improve your love life, bringing more balance to your life.
There has been some rethinking of specific plans related to education, publishing, belief systems, life experience, adventure, or travel. You begin 2021 with a better understanding of your desires in these areas, putting in you a far better position for making meaningful choices and decisions for yourself.
2021 is strong for making commitments, partnering, and negotiating. What you begin now can very well be significant and long-term. Nevertheless, there can be some pressure, accountability, and unrest in the partnership department in spots.
Relationships get serious this year and can be the source of some challenges. You are taking steps towards a more mature relationship or attitude toward what you want for your close partnerships. You might bring a connection to a new level. Relationship status changes are possible. Leaving behind an unhappy alliance or getting over a hump in an existing partnership can figure strongly. Someone seems to be in your corner this year. You might resolve long-standing problems and come to beneficial agreements.
While health and work pursuits are still important and sometimes intense, much of the stress you’ve felt with these things is easing. You’re opening to learning, sharing, and connecting in healthier ways.
New themes stirring this year include a boost to intimacy and shared finances, as well as significant developments in your career or longer-term goals. There will be more to these unfolding stories in 2022, but you’ll begin to see some beneficial changes now.
This Year in Love: Leo
2021 Love Horoscope for Leo
Last year, Saturn dipped its toes in from March 21-July 1, but later (mid-December) dove right in. This energy is serious, a bit stern, and practical. However, Jupiter also entered the same sector of your solar chart, and it’s an entirely different, and in many ways opposite, feel. Jupiter wants to grow, expand, embrace, and enjoy itself. Jupiter’s transit here usually brings helpful people to your door (figuratively speaking) or a happy, upbeat relationship theme to your life.
While they have very different personalities, when Jupiter and Saturn get together, they tend to get things done. It’s a strong time for making commitments, partnering, and negotiating. What you begin now can very well be significant and long-term.
Nevertheless, there can be some pressure, accountability, and unrest in the partnership department in spots.
Relationships get serious this year and can be the source of some challenges. You might solidify a partnership or make a commitment. The pressures that arise this year and next can break a relationship that is not strong enough to endure in some cases.
Saturn moving through your partnership sector brings serious energy to one-to-one relationships, and its opposition to your own Sun or Ascendant can stimulate some feelings of being alone, unsupported, or blocked. However, you also have support for learning, connecting, and understanding cultural differences. Some of you could be committing to a second marriage. You are taking steps towards a more mature relationship or attitude toward what you want for your close partnerships.
Some of you will be gravitating towards more mature, grounded, or practical (Saturn-like) people. Most of you will be looking for quality in your relationships. Who meets you halfway? Some of you will decide you’d rather be alone than settle for something that doesn’t fulfill you.
Ultimately, you’re learning exactly what a close partnership means to you. The process involves stripping some of your fantasies about relationships, and this can feel draining at times, but it works in your favor in the longer run. You may see the less flattering sides of a partner, relationship, or yourself through a relationship. At first, this can feel a bit stark, but once you get to a more realistic frame of mind, you’re in better shape for making good choices and decisions.
This is not the time to shy away from important conversations or other signals that require your strong attention.
There will be times when your relationships feel heavy this year and the next, but the potential is high for stepping up and sorting out this area of your life in no uncertain terms…cont’d
