LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): "I was six years old when my parents told me that there was a small, dark jewel inside my skull, learning to be me." So said Leo science-fiction writer Greg Egan in his story "Learning to Be Me." Let's pretend you, too, have a small dark jewel in your skull learning to be you. It's a good metaphor for what I think has been happening all these years: You've been gradually mastering the art of being the best Leo you can be. It hasn't been easy. You weren't born knowing how to be your beautiful, radiant, courageous self; you had to work hard to activate potentials. You're moving into a critical phase; you have a chance to learn how to love yourself with greater ingenuity.
