"Valor is strength, not of legs and arms, but of heart and soul; it consists not in the worth of our horse or our weapons, but in our own."

-- Michel de Montaigne

On August 27, Mars in Leo brings back the fire after a moody and watered-down voyage through Cancer. Instead of brooding or worrying about how we can protect our feelings and avoid confrontation, Mars in Leo brings the return or courage, strength and valor! We're ready to express ourselves with openhearted, bold statements and moves.

There is a fearless quality to Mars in Leo that's determined to put on a good show. We're ready to fire off some gutsy moves under this influence. Mars in Leo can also evoke our inner drama queens, so be sure you have a stage other than your relationships to act out the need to be seen, adored and worshipped. Praise and appreciation go a long way now, so don't be stingy on the compliments!

We're also more inclined to feel extremely loyal and protective over our loved ones. Pride can be a bit of an issue under this fixed Fire energy. Should we feel disrespected, taken for granted or snubbed in any way, our inner beast will not sit by quietly. There is a generous spirit to this Mars influence where we're more willing to go the extra mile for the ones we adore and expect the same in return.

It's best to treat everyone and everything with the utmost reverence now. Treat people as if they're Hollywood royalty and watch how the love and generosity effortlessly flows back to you. This is a magnanimous time favoring the valiant, the courageous and the openhearted.
