The temperatures have been record-breaking outside, but the real heat wave begins this weekend—astrologically, that is. On Saturday, the Sun departs watery, sentimental Cancer and enters majestic fire sign Leo, the sign that it rules. The shift is literally like night and day. Lunar Cancer is the shy, side-scuttling crab governed by the moon, while Leo is the bold, fearless Lion sharing warmth and solar power with the world.
Those lazy days of summer (escaping to the beach, visiting family, daydreaming) are about to get a little more active when the Sun leaves watery Cancer for Fire sign Leo this weekend. Enjoy a little more of the domestic and serene this week. Rearrange the furniture. Visit relatives. Plan a girls’ brunch, dinner or outing. Eat ice cream with abandon and laze around until noon. Wear that faded tank and those cargo shorts for five days in a row (before you ceremonially burn them in the name of Leo glamour!).
Rehab: not just for grownups anymore? Yesterday, Demi Lovato, the 18-year-old Disney Channel darling (and a Leo), cancelled her tour with the Jonas Brothers. She entered treatment for “emotional and physical issues.” According to People.com, a family friend cites disordered eating and even cutting/self-injuring. From her early teen years, "[Lovato] definitely had body-image issues.
