Today you could feel your life has got out of control or you might have lost sight of your original purpose and begun drifting off course. Talking to others or just spending time among other people and absorbing ideas from them may kick-start your own thinking and enable you to find greater clarity.
Imaginative ideas and visions may be flooding into your mind and you could benefit from time alone to develop these until they are fully formed.
Work and ordinary everyday tasks could take up most of your attention today. Although much about your tasks and routine might be the same as usual, you may approach your work with powerful new ideas and a greater sense of purpose. You might want to introduce change of some kind, or do things in a radically different way.
Today there may be some tension in your home and family life. You might experience emotional upsets with family members, but these could actually reflect a need for change in your life. The key may to try to identify this need and try to find a compromise between yourself and other members of your household, without sacrificing your need for freedom and change.
You could seek to make changes in terms of your professional ambitions, or career path. You might want to take a different direction to that you have followed in the past. But today may not be a good day to make important career decisions, as your feelings could be erratic and unreliable. You might not really need to bring about change on as large a scale as you may think, today. The key could be to vary your tasks and find a way to keep your work interesting and engaging.
There could be conflict or tension between your family and a partner or someone you are romantically interested in. You may feel torn both ways but, of course, the solution could be to find a way to be true to both and to your own feelings. It is possible that secret or hidden feelings could be more openly expressed, today. This might make you feel more enthusiastic about romance and may bring you closer to someone.
You may feel the pull of the past in some way, today. Conversations, perhaps those centred around home and family, could remind you of old memories, feelings and experiences. You might need to take care not to let these intrude too much on your peace in the present.
Being at home with your family is likely to feel meaningful and uplifting. A family member could open up and confide things to you that you were not aware of and you might be able to offer them the benefit of your knowledge and experience. Your positivity may be useful in helping to bring about good relations between family members. But you may desire a change of scene and the chance to explore somewhere new beyond your everyday environment or outside your usual field of experience.

This could be a favourable time for adopting a new image or way of expressing yourself, attending to individual personal matters, acting independently and, generally, having time to yourself and doing what you want to do.
As the week gets off to a start, in romance and relationships, you might need to beware a tendency to feel possessive about the object of your affection. However, this could be an excellent time to show them how much you value them.

Monthly Leo Horoscope
Your Leo horoscope for July 2018
If you are about to engage in any charitable activity or anything involving your playing a behind-the-scenes type role, the best time to start a new project of this kind may be on or after Saturday 14th July. It may be wise to avoid starting anything new on Friday 13th July, as your efforts may be overlooked or not yield a favourable result. This is not because of superstition about Friday 13th, but rather because of unfavourable astrological conditions on this date.
If a new romance is likely to become a steady, more committed relationship, this may be apparent by Thursday 26th July. Or if you are attached, and have any relationship issue which needs to be brought to a conclusion, it may be best to try to accomplish this by Thursday 26th July. If you are seeking to take a relationship to a new level, it may be beneficial to do this by this date. Or if you are thinking of bringing a relationship to an end, this may be the most apt time. It may be wise to avoid trying to conclude relationship matters on Friday 27th July, as on this date, things may not end the way you hoped.
More About Leo
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. At this stage of our journey through the signs, after the struggle in the womb of Cancer, we find joy and fulfilment. This is why those born under this sign have such a joyful, playful pleasure-loving nature. This is the sign of the Lion, the king of the jungle and its symbol suggests a lion’s mane. This reflects your proud, majestic, regal bearing. Your ruling planet is the Sun, the centre or pulsating heart of our Solar system on which our warmth depends and in mythology the Sun god was the bringer of light. So you are a sunny, warm, wholehearted person who likes to shine and be the centre of attention. Your element is Fire and this makes you powerful, confident and radiant. Leo is a fixed sign and this gives you a dedicated, steadfast, loyal nature. You can sometimes be a bit bossy, ostentatious and over-dramatic. But you approach life in an honest, loving and sincere way. You have a need to develop your own power and selfhood and are likely to be very creative.
