For July 29: Happy Birthday, Leo! Although you can be incredibly seductive, charming, and a real crowd pleaser, your motives are far deeper and more complex than most realize. You are not sated by merely being admired, envied and sought after; you want much, much more. You're not shy about using seduction and flirtation to soften others' resistance and get your foot in the door. A born politician, you play your part to perfection by using a velvet hammer to beat down opposition and competition. You charm and seduce your way into others' boardrooms and bedrooms, and inevitably learn more about them than they ever do about you. How do you do this? For starters, you're a true believer - a passionate follower of specific ethics, faith, or lifestyle. You are so convinced of your correctness that you ultimately win the loyalty and respect of others. There's nothing fake about you or your motives. You are the genuine article - a person of principle. You will have detractors, but your commitment and example speak louder than others' increasingly faint criticism. Even when your views are proven wrong, no one can dispute your passion and dedication or the hold you have on others. Your warmth is palpable and magnetic, influencing others to eagerly follow in your footsteps. Personal relationships may take a toll or prove confusing because you have an easier time dealing with masses of people than coping with the demands of intimacy. Many of you become impressive public speakers, writers, actors or lawyers. People listen when you speak and believe in your sincerity.
