You are the shining star, don’t let others dim your brilliance! In August it will be easier to shine than any other month this year. The month begins with Communicator Mercury in Leo traveling next to Jupiter spreading messages about how wonderful you royal beasts are, then on 8/12 Venus enters Leo helping you shine like pure gold!
