LEO I - The Week of AUTHORITY July 26-August 2
Among the most powerfully authoritative of the year, Leo I's are intense, hard driving individuals, dedicated primarily to their own personal activities, growth and development. Asserting themselves and being taken seriously is what appeals to them. Also, much of their energy is channeled inward rather than outward, toward developing their own strengths and abilities. Yet they do not view themselves as the be-all and end-all either - far from it. They believe in ultimate higher value authorities, which they worship and serve: usually the abstract truths and principles embodied in the practice of their principal endeavor, whether it lies in the arts, business, sports or philosophy.

LEO II - The Week of BALANCED STRENGTH August 3-10
Solid and tough, Leo II's do not back down from challenges; in fact, they thrive on them,and are often at their best when facing problems and difficulties. Although drawn toward experiences that hod an element of danger, they are usually not foolhardy enough to attempt the impossible. Realists, they are well aware of their limitations, which they may stretch to the limit if necessary but will rarely try to over leap.
