Zodiac sign - Leo. Doodle hand-drawn style

Lounge Around

You’ve seen Leo’s totem, the Lion, in his native habitat — most of the time, he’s lazing around. Loveable Leo has a lazy streak, in step with the slower rhythm of late summer. Many think of holidaying when the Sun is in Leo, in the leisure days before the productive back-to-school vibe of Autumn.

A good month to sneak in decadent hours or days of relaxation and pleasure-seeking. Leo loves a break from the grind, for a tropical smoothie at a sidewalk cafe, or getting lost in a summer novel.
