Today's Leo Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
August 03, 2020
Today's Full Moon falls in your opposite sign, dear Leo, and relationship issues or needs can come to light. It might bring a personal matter to your attention or get you in touch with feelings you've buried or kept at bay. This energy can be very revealing. If you've been focusing too little on your relationships, they can demand your attention now. This lunation tends to encourage you to reach a compromise or find a better balance if you've been overdoing things. There could be an epiphany reached about a partnership. A Mercury-Saturn aspect also happening today can enforce an edit or correction. Problems related to work, health, or routines can weigh you down a little. There may be demands on you or people around you are taking things too literally. If you've been doing far more than your share, you might want to take steps to make changes. Even with some blocks or delays, you are more courageous about embracing and expressing your feelings.

- The Full Moon occurs midday today in the sign of Aquarius. It’s a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment.

- The Full Moon illuminates this conflict with the Leo Sun in opposition to the Aquarius Moon.
- When a Full Moon occurs, there can be proclamations and outpours that can be raw. This lunation illuminates feelings, attitudes, and circumstances that have been buried or overlooked. It’s a time of awakening to the need for others or to answer to humanitarian impulses.
- This lunation’s square to Uranus suggests that we should watch for prematurity and abrupt changes or rebellion.
- Mercury opposes Saturn this afternoon, however, and we can face mental, transportation, or communication blocks.
- We may meet with some criticism, delays, or challenges to our opinions, ideas, or intelligence.
- Circumstances are such that we may need to tone down our enthusiasm if our plans are lacking, and think in more practical, realistic terms.

This Month: Leo
August 2020 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Leo:
You are likely to feel braver and more outgoing this month with the Sun in your sign until the 22nd and support from assertive Mars, dear Leo. You're more inclined to express your ideas and personality more freely. Your vision and intelligence empower you, and you seem to instinctively know that change is necessary so that you can improve, develop, and grow. Your good organizational capacities help you get things done with minimal interference and maximum respect.
August helps pull you out of situations that have been weighing you down. Plans may seem to be coming together as your confidence builds. It's a fine time for activities you genuinely enjoy and for taking on a challenge.
Decision-making is a lot more straightforward than it has been. You're more forthcoming this month. You benefit from feeling more in control of your thoughts and decisions. Identifying with a friend, pet project, or cause can figure strongly.
While the month encourages your independence in a general sense, the Full Moon on the 3rd can bring relationship issues or needs to light. You might get in touch with feelings you've buried or kept at bay, and it can be a wonderful revelation. This lunation tends to encourage you to reach a compromise or find a better balance if you've been overdoing things. At the same time, if you've been doing far more than your share, you might feel the imbalance more intensely and want to make changes.
A decision to take up different studies or to do something entirely different can come on urgently as Mars and Jupiter form a square aspect on the 3-4. Impatience with routine matters can be a problem since your sights are set very high, so you might want to make small rather than sweeping changes to dull and lifeless areas of your life. Tame the tendency to go over the top.
Venus has spent a longer time than usual in your social sector. On August 7th, it moves on, entering your privacy sector for a month. This transit is one of the very few introspective ones in August. There can be a bit of mystery to your love life, feelings, and affections. You might aim to release old or outdated attitudes and clear space so that new experiences and affections can enter your life. You may be a little more tentative than usual about feelings and even purchases during this cycle.
Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle mid-August. This cycle 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.
Still, you've had much mulling over, processing, and thinking to do in recent weeks, and it feels great to pull out of this mode in August. You may very well delight others with your communications this month. You'll feel a nice burst of mental energy, and projects that didn't gain momentum last month now seem more exciting and ready to go.
The New Moon on the 18th occurs in your sign, pointing to a personal new beginning or a sense that you have a new lease on life. You feel more power to make changes and steer your life where you want it to go. You might subtly change the way you greet the world if this can benefit you. You are more noticeable and dynamic than usual, and people appreciate you, often turning you for your input. Communications or mental pursuits and interests can be part of your fresh start.
A theme involving comfort, talents, and finances emerges as the month advances. You might discover clever and novel ways of combining work and adventure, learning, or transportation. You put far more thought than usual into business and finances now. You have an exceptional sense of what is truly valuable to you, and your capabilities.
This Year: Leo
2020 Yearly Horoscope Overview
You’re serious about self-care, work, and health again this year, dear Leo, but you’re approaching it more holistically and joyfully! It’s a powerful year for a turning point in these areas–something has to change.
Early in 2020, there can be a reality check to deal with related to work or health and habits, after which you’re rebuilding if not bigger, better! It’s a year for making radical changes to improve your daily affairs and routines. Motivation builds to new levels that you may never have experienced before as Jupiter and Pluto join forces in your solar sixth house from March to November. It’s powerful energy for rebuilding and improving the structures in your life.
A Jupiter-Neptune aspect is subtle but beautiful for your love life. Your relationships get a nice boost in 2020. Still, it’s more about practical than romantic gestures this year with Saturn dividing its time between your work and partnership sectors. In truth, Saturn is phasing out of your work sector and will leave for good (or at least another 29 years) on December 17th. Jupiter is the newer guest in this area of your chart, helping you to enjoy the process, whether it’s about your work, projects, routines, or health and wellness programs.
December brings fabulous and practical energy for a new beginning related to partnership. It’s about commitment–whatever you choose now, you’re all in. While you’ve been bringing more maturity to your work and health in recent years, this energy is shifting towards your key one-to-one relationships. There will be times when your relationships feel heavy in the coming years, but the potential is high for stepping up and sorting out this area of your life in no uncertain terms.
Your career requires new approaches–if you’ve been in a rut, things are changing. You’re reinventing yourself on professional or public levels. The process is a long one–it’s not going to happen all at once. However, the work you’re doing in 2020 helps pave the road toward more freedom or authenticity. It may be that you have to do quite a bit of leg or detail work before you get to the best place for you professionally speaking. Experimentation is part of all of this with Uranus at the top of your solar chart.
Another emerging theme this year comes from the emphasis on your social sector, first through Venus’ extended stay from April to August (of which May 13-June 25 Venus is retrograde), and then due to the North Node’s visit to this sector starting in May. Eclipses are beginning to shake up the way you do your social and romantic life, too. The areas of both challenge and great reward are friendship, networks, associates, teams, and happiness goals. Teamwork is the way to go in 2020, even if it’s not always your first or natural choice. Sharing the load may mean sometimes sharing the credit, but overall, you’re in good shape for rounding out your experiences this year and next. Awakening to your true feelings for a friend or lover can figure strongly.
There can be times this year when you feel overwhelmed with choices on the work or health front, but overall, this is a time for making serious progress. By 2021, your focus will shift quite dramatically toward your social life and loftier goals, but for now, you’re laying the groundwork and putting in the effort. As always, it’s important to pace yourself, but you’re likely to more fully enjoy the work you do in 2020.
Self-discipline is exciting now, and you’ll need more of it when Mars retrogrades from September 9-November 13. Fortunately, this retrograde occurs in harmony to your sign, and you’ll feel it more as a valuable slowdown than a disruption. Traveling and learning look especially fulfilling for you after that time. During the retrograde, you may be rethinking certain plans related to education, publishing, belief systems, life experience, adventure, or travel. The goal is to genuinely understand your true desires and to live more authentically in these areas of life. It’s a powerful time for training and learning that you’ll apply to your advantage in early 2021.

2020 Love Horoscope for Leo
Energies that are moving into your life this year relate to partnership: Saturn dips its toes into your partnership sector from March 21-July 1, and then dives in on December 17th. This energy is serious, a bit stern, and practical. However, on December 19th, Jupiter enters 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, 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 and in the coming year can very well be significant and long-term.
You’ll probably see hints of pressure, accountability, and unrest in the partnership department here and there in 2020, and you’ll be ready to address them towards the end of the year and into 2021.
What’s especially interesting is that Jupiter is the ruler of your sector of romance and fun or casual relationships. Jupiter’s move into your sector of committed partnerships in December can point to a make-or-break time for a casual connection. You could be bringing a relationship to a new level. We’ll probably see more than the usual relationship status changes for Leo near the end of the year and into 2021. As Jupiter blesses your relationships and commitments, Saturn wants you to take your commitments and attachments seriously..cont’d
