LEO (July 22–August 23)
New developments in your solar chart are calling on you to take authority. Yet you must do this in a way that's distinct from the world's top-down models of leadership, which seem to care little about right and wrong. In a world that's ruled by power, where people do things just because they can, there's a special necessity to suspend ethics. You, however, must make ethics your first—and, in some cases only—priority. Primarily, this means being in alignment with your own ideas about what is correct and true, and acting only in accordance with them. You have the power to do pretty much anything you want, regardless of whether it works for you or anyone. This is similar to driving a car. You make the choice of how fast you go, what side of the yellow lines you stay on, and your state of mind while operating your vehicle. You can do anything you want; and in what you do, you're guided by some principle—for example, obeying the law, not wanting to harm anyone, or wanting to get home safely. The time has arrived to apply this kind of idea to your whole life. You need to know where you stand with yourself, and how that sets up the parameters of your choices and actions. The wide world is not watching: it's you.
