Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Two influences are at play for you right now. On one hand, you want to retire and take a backseat. Ideally, you want to play hooky or blow off work. On the other hand, because the planet Mercury is in your sign, you are keen to talk and communicate to others. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
