LEO: July 16-21

“We must learn to bear the pleasures as we have borne the pains,” says writer Nikki Giovanni. That’s apt advice to keep in mind during the months ahead. You may think I’m perverse to suggest that. Compared to how demanding it was to manage the suffering you experienced in late 2013 and earlier this year, you may assume it’ll be easy to deal with the awakening heading your way. Consider the possibility that these blessings bring challenges. You may need to surrender inconveniences and hardships you’re used to, almost comfortable with. It’s conceivable you have to divest yourself of habits that made sense earlier, but are now counterproductive.
