August 2011 Monthly Horoscope for Leo
Many Leos will find themselves rethinking their life choices and examining their own behavior this month. As your eye turns inward you'll make discoveries that are entirely unexpected and this self examination may take you places you never anticipated. As you delve deeper into the inner person, you may find you're limited by your own lack of knowledge about certain aspects of human development, but this will not be a deterrent to you. Instead, you'll be drawn towards books and classes on psychology, physiology and other aspects of behavioral science. These will open even more doors for you and subsequently you may discover you're more willing than you thought to consider some truly life-altering changes to your daily routine. Be aware, however, that it's a bad idea at this time to make snap judgments and determinations. Any decisions, especially important ones, should be well thought out with an eye toward how they will affect not only you, but those you care for.
This may prove a frustrating time for you because ideas are coming hot and fast, but you're having a terrible time expressing them to others. For some reason, those close to you simply can't seem to make head or tails of what you're talking about. Part of the reason for this, of course, is that the ideas have not fully formed in your own mind; expressing them to other in a way that makes sense is naturally difficult right now. Instead, consider putting your ideas on hold, contemplate their ramifications a bit longer and then- and only then- take the leap and share them with others. Going off half-cocked will only make you look indecisive.
Perhaps it would be a good idea at this time to jot down notes to yourself, put all the great ideas you're having on paper for consideration at a later time. You don't want to stop the flow of creative ideas by doggedly trying to deconstruct each thought passing through your transom. Best to let them surge through now, then go back to them when the waters calm a bit. Despite all this mental energy, you're surprisingly closed minded to the ideas of others at the moment. Try to open up to others.
Your analytical skills are also running hot this month. You can get ahead in business by analyzing the past success and failures of others, those you know and strangers, to determine their secrets to accomplishing great things. Look not only to recent history, but also far into the past. What were the techniques employed by some of the world's great thinkers, inventors, discoverers? What philosophies did they espouse which you might be able to put into practice in your daily life? Answering questions like these will be child's play for you this month, so take advantage of the situation to better your own life. Once you feel you have some understanding of what it takes to reach your goals, don't hesitate to put your plan into action. The sooner you get started, the sooner you'll actually reach that place you really want to be.
